Six and Seven figure Earners Share their Money Making YouTube Secrets

This week’s episode is a compilation of some AMAZING money-making tips from some of the creators I’ve interviewed.  When it comes to YouTube… why do it if you’re not making money off it? My goal is to help my listeners and my students grow their channels and grow their audience so that they can monetize and maintain their channel. The fastest road to burnout is not making any money from it. It’s difficult to sustain a YouTube channel if there’s no ROI on all your hard work!

How to Make Over $100k/Year as a Small YouTuber with Under 100k Subscribers

This week I had Megan from the Portable Professional on the show! She’s a travel tips & hacks YouTuber (not a vlogger!). In this interview, we talk a lot about monetizing for a channel under 100k subscribers. In 2022, she was able to make $100k off her channel. One of the things that I found really insightful in valuable was how she negotiates with brands. She says she is “ruthless,” and she goes into detail about her high standards when it comes to negotiating with brands. She is so meticulous with her monetization strategy, and it’s really paying off!

The Secret Weapon Against YouTube Haters and Trolls

As a YouTube strategist and coach, I talk to mostly women all day every day about YouTube. One thing that comes up time and time again, especially for larger channels (though the fear of it is more present in smaller channels) is getting haters and trolls. Part of the price you pay for Youtube success or any online platform is that you will get unsolicited feedback, and some of it won’t be very nice.  In this episode, I’m talking about the secret to bulletproofing your mind against the haters and trolls.  Click HERE to watch this on YouTube Full show notes at erikavieira.net ---------- 🆕 Struggling with camera confidence as a creator?

3 Ways to Boost Your Youtube Camera Confidence

How do you get more confidence? How do you showcase that personality and charisma that you see other creators having? Confidence has a snowball effect: the more confidence you have, the better you are in front of the camera you are, the more interesting, dynamic, magnetic and charismatic you are, and then more people want to watch you. The more people subscribe and watch your videos, the more subscribers you get, and so on and so forth. So what’s the secret? How are successful content creators with hundreds of thousands–even millions–of subscribers achieving this level of success? I feel like it boils down to three things.

Another HUGE Announcement!!! Change is happening

Do you ever struggle with negative self-talk when it comes to creating video content? “Is this going to work out?” “Am I wasting my time?” “Do people think I’m weird?” I have something I’ve been working on for almost a year that can help with that! I work with A LOT of content creators, and I see so much of what goes on behind the scenes… and not just for YouTube! I’m talking about video content on instagram, tiktok, you name it. The mind games that come with this career are no joke! Your confidence as a creator, your confidence on camera, and your internal dialogue are all crucial to your success and growth.  I’m releasing a BRAND NEW course all about CONFIDENCE and strengthening that internal dialogue. Your confidence on camera is a direct reflection of what’s going on in your mind. These two are intrinsically linked! There is so much more that goes into being confident on camera beyond, “just talk like you’re talking to a friend!” and this course is going to be a deep dive into that. Included in the course is everything you’ll need to improve your confidence on camera. Think of it as a crash course into everything it will take to become the best version of you. Confidence is learned. Confidence is something that EVERYONE can achieve. I’ve put a lot of time and effort into this course and I’m so excited to finally bring it to the world!  CLICK HERE to get the ALL NEW Capture Your Confidence Course!

How to Monetize Your Content (Even When YouTube Pays Nothing!) with Jaime from Cosmic Kids Yoga

This week I had the opportunity to interview someone a little bit different. I don’t think I’ve had anyone on the show who creates YouTube content specifically geared towards children. Jaime from Cosmic Kids Yoga is an incredible creator and my daughters LOVE watching her. I’m a huge advocate for limiting screen time for kids, but I let my daughters watch Jaime’s videos because it combines storytelling with movement. Kids are doing yoga while they are acting out their favorite stories. Her videos have beautiful, positive messages for children and her production is out of this world.  This interview is super interesting as Jaime explains how she was able to monetize a children’s channel as well as how she produces these incredible videos.  Quick disclaimer - we had some audio issues with this episode, so please bear with us! The content is still amazing even if the audio is not as clear as it usually is!

YouTube Growth Secrets to 700k Subscribers with Dr. Vanita Rattan

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing someone whose channel I have loved since I first discovered her it: Dr. Vanita Rattan. She talks a lot about hyperpigmentation and skincare on her channel. It was such a pleasure getting to know her better in this interview. We only had a short window of time available so we jam-packed as much information as we could into this interview.   I’m so inspired by her story and how she went full-time on Youtube. Failure was not an option for her. Her work ethic, her passion, and her energy for YouTube is so palpable and motivating. After listening to this interview, I think you’re going to be fired up!   Our connection was a bit spotty, so the audio has some glitches in it!

The Secret to a Successful Lifestyle Niche with Iryna Fedchenko

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Iryna Fedchenko! Iryna is originally from Ukraine, and currently based out of LA, but a lot of her channel centers around when she lived in Mexico and her many travels. She calls her channel a lifestyle channel, but it touches on so many different topics! Her channel has over 800k subscribers and 50 million views Her channel is in Spanish, so if you’re not a Spanish speaker, you may not really understand what she’s saying, but you can still get a good sense of what’s going on.

How Beauty YouTuber Lisa J. Tripled Her Adsense Revenue While Going from 3 Videos a Week to 2!

I had Lisa on the show a few years ago, and I’m so excited to welcome her back to the podcast… this time as one of my 1:1 coaching clients! I love bringing on the creators I work with, showing them off on the podcast, and seeing what happens when someone truly uplevels their content. After 7 years on YouTube and becoming very successful, Lisa started to feel stuck. She was finding it hard to create content she was excited about, her views were on a slow and steady decline. It started to become a vicious cycle. The more her views declined, the less motivated and inspired she felt to create content.  Now, after working 1:1 with me, she's tripled her AdSense revenue and getting more views to her channel by doing less videos a week! She's working smarter, not harder, and making more by doing less. Most of all, she's felt reinvigorated with her newfound creativity, and is passionate and proud of her content!

Should You Upload A YouTube Video if It’s Not an Original Idea?

Do you need to come up with completely original ideas in order to be successful on YouTube? A lot of people try to be original on YouTube. They want to be different. They want to stand out. So they agonize over coming up with brand new concepts and get held back by the idea that their ideas have been done before, so they can’t do them again. One of the biggest pieces of YouTube advice out there is that you have to be different in order to stand out in a crowded YouTube space… and I’m guilty of giving out that advice. So what do you do when you have a great idea, but you’re afraid someone else has already done it? What do you do when you have a great idea, but just as you’re sitting down to film it, someone else does it? Do you create it anyway? Do you upload it? The answer is yes. And in this episode, I’ll tell you why. Watch it on YouTube here! ---------- Love the podcast? Got some feedback you want to share?

Should You Start a YouTube Channel or Podcast? Which is Better for Growth?

I started podcasting when most people didn’t know what a podcast was. I’ve recorded well over 300 episodes and I’m grateful to have been listed as a top marketing podcast for many years. I’ve been a guest on several popular podcasts as well, so it’s safe to say that I know a thing or two about podcasting. But I also know a thing or two about YouTube! I’ve been running my YouTube Bootcamp, coaching YouTube creators, and managing several channels for years, and this has given me an interesting perspective on both podcasting and YouTube. So which should you do? Should you start a podcast or start a YouTube channel… or both? In this episode, we’re going to examine the pros and cons of podcasting and youtube channels, so if you’re on the fence about which direction you want to go in, this might help you narrow down your choice!  Watch it on YouTube here! ---------- Love the podcast?

From Stuck on YouTube to 200k Subscribers: How YouTube Coaching Transformed Nicole Green’s YouTube Channel

Nicole’s channel did really well in 2019 when she had a viral video and her channel exploded, but by 2020, her channel had stagnated. Nicole was wondering how to keep her views up and how to keep her subscribers engaged. At 180k subscribers, she would check her stats every day, but nothing was changing. She was kind of stuck in terms of what kind of videos she was doing, and after a channel rebrand, she was exhausted from all the work she was doing without seeing any changes. I first met Nicole when I had her on the podcast last year, and after the interview, we got to talking, and she enrolled in my bootcamp and my private coaching. The rest is history! I’m so proud and excited for the direction her channel is going in now. ---------- 📝 Click HERE to check out the show notes! Love the podcast? Got some feedback you want to share?

Are Your Subscribers Coming Back and Watching your YouTube Videos? Returning and Unique Viewers

Seeing success on YouTube boils down to two very specific things: attracting new viewers and keeping the ones you have. So how do you build a loyal community? How can you ensure that the people who watch your videos turn into loyal subscribers? How do you even see where your subscribers are coming from? In this week’s episode, I’m going to teach you how to find your analytics in the audience tab and use those analytics to hone your YouTube strategy.  When you have more new viewers than returning viewers, it means that YouTube is pushing out your content and exposing you to new viewers, but also, these viewers either aren’t translating into subscribers, or they aren’t translating into subscribers that come back.  When you have more returning viewers than new viewers, it means your subscribers are really loyal, which is AMAZING, but you’re struggling to grow and be exposed to new viewers. So how can you find this metric? How can you analyze what yours means? What is the most ideal situation? Tune in to find out! ---------- Love the podcast? Got some feedback you want to share?

Three Common Mistakes Beginner YouTube Creators Make When Trying to Find their YouTube Niche

Are you struggling to find your Youtube niche? There are A LOT of so-called “rules” and misconceptions out there on what your niche should be and how to go about finding it.   Does your niche need to be something that you’re passionate about? What about if you followed your skills and your successes instead of your passions?    Isn’t a niche just a topic? NO! It’s a segment of a larger market that can be defined by its own unique needs, preferences, or identity. Your niche is not just what to talk about, it’s the people who are interested in it, their demographics, the location, and more. It’s not just enough to be a “beauty” channel… you have to dig deeper. Who are your viewers? What do they want? Where do they live? Think about the attributes when finding your niche.   When thinking about a niche, take into consideration the WHOLE picture and what YOU have to bring to YouTube!    Action breeds clarity. Don’t know your niche yet? That’s ok! Start your channel and start making videos, and the more you do that, the more you will evolve and figure it out. ---------- Love the podcast?

Will Going Live on YouTube Help You Grow in 2021?

Did you know that livestreams increased in 2020 by 45%?

Goodbye, 2020, hello 2021! Recapping this crazy year and looking forward to the future

Hey YouTube Power Hour Squad! In this episode, I’m going to share with you some of what went on behind the scenes in 2020 and let you know what I have left to come in 2021! A lot of us can’t wait for 2020 to be over, but I bet if you look back, many of you probably made some serious changes and had to SERIOUSLY look at where you were in your life and where you wanted to go. Maybe the pandemic helped you start your YouTube channel. Maybe it helped you take it more seriously. Maybe it helped you realize how you can make money online. In 2020, I launched my new eBook and enrolled nearly 200 women (and some men) into my bootcamp. I was able to bring on some amazing guest speakers into my bootcamp coaching calls. I also re-launched my 1:1 coaching program for women who are serious about going full-time on YouTube or hit their next milestone, and I was reminded how much I LOVE the 1:1 coaching aspect of my business.  I also checked something off my bucket list this year by speaking at VidSummit and I’m super proud of the presentation I was able to put together and honored for the opportunity.  Finally, on the podcast, I upped my game and started 2 episodes a week and had some AMAZING guests, including Chalene Johnson, olympian Shawn Johnson, Hyram, the GlamTwinz, Dr. Dray, Sarah Therese, Lydia Elise Millen… and SO many more!  So what’s new in 2021? I’m gonna be BRINGING it on YouTube with strategy videos and tons more bonus content. To my listeners and subscribers: thank you so much for all the support you’ve been giving me these last few years and thank you for sticking around, for all of your messages, etc.!

5 IMPORTANT Things you MUST understand if your YouTube channel isn't growing (this WILL help you)

Hey YouTube Power Hour Squad! In this episode, I’m going to talk about the 5 things you have to think about if you’ve been on YouTube for YEARS without seeing any growth. My guest this week was Camille Collazo, who was on YouTube for 6 years without seeing much growth, but it was her passion for creation and her determination that kept her going. It took a global pandemic for Camille to blow up on YouTube when she transitioned to frugal living hacks and content around money-saving tips. Her journey is proof that with resilience and determination, you can be successful on YouTube with the right tools!   Here are the 5 things to think about if your channel is STUCK: You need to have a VISION: visualize the channel you want to have, who your ideal subscriber is, etc. Without a vision, you have no path to success. Make a commitment to your channel: once you make a commitment and treat your channel like a full-time job, even if it’s not! Be self-aware: you need to be honest with yourself, whether it’s knowing if YouTube is the right platform for you, or whether it’s if your niche is right for you, you need to assess yourself as a content creator and what isn’t working for you. Are you passionate about YouTube? You might be really passionate about your topic or niche, but in order to be successful on YouTube, you need to be passionate about creating and sharing videos. This platform is not a good fit for everyone! Know when you need help: You need to know what your strengths and weaknesses are. If you suck at editing videos, hire an editor! Such at making thumbnails? Hire a graphic designer! Need someone to help you with your channel? Hire a coach!   Are you ready to implement these 5 tips?  ---------- Love the podcast?

YouTube Advice for High Schoolers: Starting a YouTube Channel as a Student in High School

Are you in high school or college and looking to start a YouTube channel? This episode is for YOU! This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Vanessa Nagoya, who started her channel at the age of 15. She is now 18 and has nearly 400k subscribers!   So what can you do as a Gen Z’er looking to get started on YouTube?   JUST GET STARTED. Start creating content! Even if that means you never post it! The only way you’re going to get good at YouTube is to just start DOING it.  BE AUTHENTIC. Be yourself. Don’t be anybody you’re not! Finding your voice is so important at your age. Show who YOU are and what makes you you! Your audience will connect with YOU and want to watch you: your quirks, insecurities, fears, and everything in between! SHARE your life experiences. Being in high school and college has SO many firsts and so many milestones, and you want to document that! People your age can relate to these milestones! You DON’T have to have a niche! Don’t be worried about boxing yourself into a niche. Having a niche is good for when you get older, but if you’re in high school, you don’t need it! Your niche is your life as you are growing up.    Just enjoy yourself, be authentically yourself, and if this stays a hobby, great! If it turns into something more, great!   Are you a high school or college student? Are you looking to be successful on YouTube?   ---------- Love the podcast? Got some feedback you want to share?

Let’s talk about what you need to know if you’re looking for your next viral hit.   Why did Isabella’s video go viral? The video is visually stimulating and keeps viewers engaged It told a story. This video was about her hair journey and how she grew it out for six years. Viewers want to stick around until the end to see the end of the story! It’s vulnerable. People connect to true, authentic emotions.  It’s fast paced. She told a 6 year long journey in 13 minutes, moving quickly from one visual stimulation to the next.

Is THIS holding You Back From YouTube Success in 2020 (you don't even know it)

This week I had one of my bootcamp students, Laura Jane Atelier, on the show. She shared the story of her journey from blogger to struggling YouTuber to SUCCESSFUL YouTuber.   One of the biggest reasons Laura was finally able to break out of her rut and see tremendous success was the total transformation she made in her mindset. Sometimes, we get in our own way when it comes to YouTube. We get stubborn. We think we know what we’re doing. But it’s important that you keep an open mind when it comes to making necessary changes in your channel for growth.  Are you struggling with staying stuck in your own way? Not seeing growth?

Why YouTube is HARD and What to Do About It

You would think someone like Shawn Johnson, a well-known olympian, would have had an easy time on YouTube, right? WRONG! Despite having an established following as a professional athlete, Shawn’s decision to start a YouTube channel proved to be a lot more work than she initially thought. Her instagram followers didn’t immediately hop over to YouTube, and at first, her channel was struggling. HOW can that be?   You have to constantly be creating content… a MINIMUM of one video a week, because without that, you cannot grow. Every video you upload has potential to be your next viral video, and each video means more chances of your video being picked up by the algorithm. Naturally, the more content, the better. The initial growth (and then later… the stalling of growth) is HARD. Shawn only had 50k subscribers after 2 years with her channel. Even a celebrity like Shawn has to put in the same work as everyone else to take their channel to the next level. Once Shawn decided to go ALL IN, Shawn leveraged her celebrity status to do collaborations with other celebrities and YouTubers. She also did A LOT of trending videos.  Balancing working with brands and satisfying the needs and wants with the brands while still being authentic to your audience. Finding the balance as a vlogger to share what your audience wants to see while also protecting your own privacy. Once you throw it out there, people will say whatever they want to say about you.    For Shawn Johnson, YouTube is truly a balancing act (see what I did there? Shawn Johnson is an olympic balance beam champion), but it has given her SO much freedom and a new way to serve a different audience.    What are you struggling with?  ---------- Love the podcast?

YouTuber with 1+ Million Subscribers Reveals: How her Manager Stole Everything!!! Ft: Cassandra Bankson

Have you ever thought about hiring a manager or an agent? You’re going to want to listen to my interview with Cassandra Bankson, who had a cautionary tale about hiring a manager.   Cassandra put her trust in the wrong person who didn’t have her best interests in mind and whose values did not align with her own.    If you’re looking to hire a manager, make sure that they align with your core values, and for your own protection, make sure they aren’t controlling your finances. Make sure you interview several candidates, ask for references, do a background check, and figure out if they have values that align with yours and if they share the same goals as you.    The more stories like Cassandra’s are told, the less likely it will happen to another creator.   What did you think about Cassandra’s story?

What to Do if You Can’t Figure Out Your YouTube Niche

This week I interviewed one of my bootcampers, Trina Albus!  Are you struggling to find your niche? Having trouble finding something to focus on? Here’s what you can do: Figure out what your strengths are, what your experiences are, what you’re uniquely qualified to speak on. What makes you unique? Who are you creating content for? Who is your audience? How old are they? What is their life experience like?  Look at your data: which videos do better? What is the subject matter of those videos? What are people watching the most on your channel? By knowing who YOU are and who you are creating for, you can help narrow down what you should be creating.  Were you inspired by Trina?

What does it mean to be yourself on YouTube? (it's not what you think)

This week I interviewed my first set of twins - the GORGEOUS Kelsey and Kendra, a.k.a the GlamTwinz, and they talked a TON about being authentic, and how they credit their authenticity to their success on YouTube. So what’s so important about authenticity? People don’t come to YouTube to watch someone phony… that’s what television is for.  Your energy translates well on camera, and your viewers are going to sense it. If you’re not being authentic, or creating content that doesn’t truly speak to who YOU are, your audience will feel that. By being unapologetically YOU; by being who YOU are, you will form connections with your audience. If you’re too focused on pleasing people, or on creating something that doesn’t truly align with you, your viewers will sense it.  If you’re creating content that you love and that you are passionate about, your channel will be much more sustainable, and the passion you have for what you're doing will translate to your videos.  Were you inspired by Kelsey and Kendra? Are you ready to commit to authenticity? ----------- Love the podcast? Got some feedback you want to share?

What to Do When Your YouTube Channel Stops Growing in Views and Subscribers

Hey YouTube Power Hour Squad! Who’s ready for more YTPH episodes?   What happens when your channel grows really quickly, but then stalls out and gets stagnant?   I talked with Shanygne a.k.a Too Much Mouth this week on the podcast, and she talked about how she reinvigorated her beauty YouTube channel by truly bringing her personality into her channel, diversifying her content, and incorporating more of herself and her interests into her channel.   Shanygne also stressed the importance of knowing what her audience wants. Don’t just ask your audience what they want from you… really listen to them. YouTube is always changing and evolving, so in order to avoid a stagnant channel, it’s important that you know what the trends are, what your listeners are watching on other channels, and apply that to your own channel.   So what should you do if your channel is stagnant? Listen to your audience’s insight to what they like and don’t like, both from you and others.  Go with your strengths: what is it that YOU have that nobody else has? Know what trends are going on in your own niche and in your own community.  Ready to stand out from the crowd and reinvent yourself? ------------- Love the podcast?

A Secret YouTube Strategy Rarely Talked About

Hey YouTube Power Hour Squad! Who’s ready for more YTPH episodes?   How many people start their YouTube channels and focus on beauty? A lot of people enjoy makeup and skincare, but it’s not quite their TRUE passion. This was the case with Stephanie Harlowe. She started her YouTube channel as a beauty channel, but realized that her true passion was true crime and history, so she took a gamble and made a pivot.   What is amazing about Stephanie is that she spends a ridiculous amount of time researching her videos so that her viewers leave with no unanswered questions. She doesn’t outsource anything, and works early in the morning to get it done.    So why does Stephanie spend SO much time on her channel? It’s very simple. She loves it. That’s the beauty of YouTube.    When it comes to YouTube, you need to find your zone of genius. For Stephanie, her true crime channel IS her zone of genius: the research, the editing, the analysis, and the presentation.   What’s your zone of genius?     Love the podcast?

Should You Start a Vlog on YouTube in 2020? (MAYBE, details revealed)

In my latest interview, I had DaNelle Wolford from Weed ‘em and Reap on the show, and she has totally revolutionized the vlogging game.   Things to consider before you start a vlogging channel: What is interesting about you and your life?  Are you skilled with editing or filmmaking?

Ways to Make Money on Youtube Without Adsense with YouTube Creator Kassandra Reinhardt

Kassandra started her YouTube channel in 2014 with no real dreams or goals. YouTube for her was a way for her to share her passion, to teach, and to help her get studio jobs. She didn’t realize that online work was a legitimate “thing.” Her channel had very humble beginnings: she knew nothing about filming, editing, or marketing, she didn’t have any equipment, and she recorded by taping her cell phone against the wall so it would stay in place. She treated her videos like her own personal practice. Her growth was a slow and steady process where every month was better than the previous month. There was no real dramatic increase or viral hit that catapulted her channel to success. Despite this, she still made a decent income even when she didn’t have a high subscriber count, because right away she quickly learned how to monetize even her small audience through paid programs, courses, and custom videos. 📝 Click HERE to check out the show notes!

How YouTuber Erin Busbee Established Herself As The #1 Fashion Channel For Women Over 40

Who’s ready for a super value-packed, deep and exciting episode about YouTube growth, from someone who’s seen it all for the past 6 years? I don’t think you’re ready! Fashion YouTuber, Erin Busbee aka Busbee Style is here and she was so generous with her time and with all her YouTube secrets. If you want to learn how to go from a trickle of views, to constantly over a million views a month and swimming in affiliate income, you’re in for a treat! “If you can take more of a strategic approach, you can grow faster.” Erin was working in TV news as a journalist, but after getting married and moving to Texas, that was a life she didn’t want to go back to. Instead of getting another job, her husband encouraged her to take that time to pursue her passion. She wasn’t sure what that was, but she knew what was on her heart was “helping women feel pretty”. That led her to start a business consulting women on their wardrobe - organizing their closets and being their personal shopper. The more it grew, the more restless she felt. She wanted to help even more women, and scale the business more and more. But scaling it by training others to do her job wasn’t giving her the satisfaction she desired. So, blogging and YouTube was born. That was in 2014, now almost 6 years later, she has almost 300k subscribers and gets over 1 million views a month helping women in their late 30s to 60s look and feel pretty! “Keep pushing your creativity and adding freshness and excitement for your regular viewers.” Even though her channel is at almost 300k subscribers now, a year later after her channel started, in 2015, she was at 10k subscribers and barely growing. At a rewardStyle event, she met someone who grew her channel really fast, and that gave her the inspiration that it was possible for her too. So she dove into research and brought a new level of focus and energy to her channel and it started to pay off. She doubled her subscribers in 2018 to 86k, and now, not even 2 years later, she’s shattered that record. In this episode, we’re diving deep into her process. She breaks down exactly how she coordinates her team, exactly how she uses analytics - and how you can too - to optimize her videos for people to watch from start to end, she breaks down how she creates her viral hits so predictably for a niche that isn’t very large, she breaks down how she runs her blog, YouTube, her IG, and social media seamlessly - and has all of them thriving, and so much more. Enjoy! “Give your viewers what they want and need and you’ll perform better.” Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

Smart, Strategic Youtube Hacks That Will Grow Your Channel Fast Like Schellea Fowler

Whether you’re a woman over 50, or just hungry to make it big on YouTube, you’re going to want to check this out! Lifestyle YouTuber Schellea Fowler, aka Fabulous50s, is sharing her secrets and going deep in lessons on how she grew to almost 600k subscribers in less than 3 years in a niche you really wouldn’t expect. Gain the upper hand by learning all you can in this week’s episode! “What’s kept me going is knowing I’m helping women feel like they’ve got a lot more life left to live.” Schellea got inspired to start on YouTube after she and her husband sold their business and retired when she was 49. They went on to travel, live it up and do all the things they dreamed of doing. But the problem was that after enjoying herself non-stop, without a new goal to chase, it became boring for her. So she started her channel, in July 2017, to have an impact at scale, taking what she does face-to-face with her clients and doing it on YouTube. She focused her niche on women over 50 and got to work. Initially, she was kind of shy and afraid to put herself out there. She wanted people to watch her videos, but she was afraid of being seen. But she pushed through and after 6 months of doing it, she felt more comfortable with boldly sharing her message, and that reflected in her channel’s growth. One video blew up to over 2 million views and her channel blew up as well. Now she has almost 600 subscribers in a little more than 2 years! “The turning point for my YouTube success was definitely when I finally felt comfortable with myself.” In this episode, Schellea breaks down the philosophy behind her channel and gives us her insights and lessons into not just growing SUPER fast on YouTube, but building a channel you’ll be proud of that will stand the test of time. Enjoy! “Feeling solid within yourself helps you appreciate what you have instead of always wanting more.” Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

The Future of Being An Influencer (2020 Stats you need to know NOW)

Influencer Marketing Hub, in collaboration with CreatorIQ, runs a yearly survey and the results are out. In this solo episode, I'm reviewing the highlights of this report with you and giving you my thoughts on how the results will impact you. 4,000 brands, marketing agencies, and industry professionals were surveyed in regards to their perspective on influencer marketing. The makeup was broken down into: - 34% were brands - 31% work at marketing agencies that work with influencers - 4% were PR agencies - the rest were industry professionals Of those surveyed, the most popular vertical represented is Fashion & Beauty (24%), followed by Travel & Lifestyle (13%), Health & Fitness (12%), Gaming (7%), Sports (5%), and Family, Parenting & Home (5%). Growth The Influencer Marketing Industry is set to grow to approximately $9.7B in 2020. This means that the growth in influencer marketing over the current year, 2019 to 2020, has seen the estimated market size increase from $6.6 billion in 2019 to $9.7 billion in 2020. We are fast approaching a market size of $10 billion.  More than 380 new influencer marketing-focused agencies and platforms were established in 2019. These were created in response to making this process easier - so more apps and companies have come on board to help with this partnership and relationship. Regulation Only 14% of influencer posts sampled were fully compliant with FTC guidelines. If influencers don't improve their performance soon, there is a real danger that the FTC and CMA will start prosecuting rather than just warning and educating. However, it is an improvement on last year’s results, with only an 11% compliance rate. Platforms and Engagement Tik Tok is the MOST downloaded app in the apple store at 33 million downloads. Micro and nano influencers have better engagement rates than influencers with 100k followers. This is particularly evident on Instagram, where nano-influencers with fewer than 1,000 followers have seven times the engagement rate than mega-influencers with greater than 100,000 followers (7.2% vs. 1.1%). This pattern shows at every follower-number level in between these extremes. 300% more micro-influencers were utilized by large firms than in 2016 Almost 90% of all influencer campaigns include Instagram as part of the marketing mix. Here are some excerpts from the report on the topic of engagement: The shift from "celebrities" to influencers The ratio of mega-influencers (with 1 million+ followers) to micro-influencers (with fewer than 100,000 followers) rose from 1:3 in 2016 to 1:10 in 2019. In other words, there are now 10 micro-influencers for every mega-influencer, compared with 3 micro-influencers per celebrity in 2016. Working with Influencers 84% of respondents said that they upped their content. That means they are hiring more and more influencers to create that content. 91% of our survey respondents believe influencer marketing to be an effective form of marketing. 2/3 of respondents are looking to INCREASE their spend on influencer marketing in 2020. This is further proof that influencer marketing remains successful and shows no sign of slowing down. After a few years of robust growth in influencer marketing, you might have anticipated the movement of marketing budgets to "the next big thing." However, that hasn't happened yet – brands and marketers can still see the effectiveness of influencer marketing and are not yet searching for something new.  65% of our respondents measure the ROI from their influencer campaigns. The most common measure of influencer marketing success is now conversions/sales. Influencer fraud is of increasing concern to respondents. More than 2/3 of respondents have experienced influencer fraud Finding the Right Influencers Finding influencers is the greatest challenge for those who run campaigns in-house. Audience relationship is the most important factor when looking at influencers: 53% said that audience relationship is #1, the second most important factor is content production at 27%. When evaluating influencers to use in campaigns, 41% of the survey respondents rated engagement or clicks as being their most important criterion compared with 26% who opted for content type/category or 25% who consider views/reach/impressions to be the most important. More than half of survey respondents have worked with 10 or fewer influencers and a further 27% had worked with 10-50 influencers and 12% with 50-100 influencers. Survey respondents spend more on micro-influencers today than they do on celebrities Respondents spent 47% of their influencer budget on micro-influencers (compared to just 23% for celebrity influencers). What does this mean for you? Bottom Line: This is an exciting study, and as an influencer you are in the right spot. These statistics should further encourage you in pursuing your career as a content creator. The marketing world is taking notice and is spending much more time, resources and money on influencer marketing. What does that mean? There are more and more opportunities for YOU, the influencer. How do you take advantage of this? Continue to create good content, be clear on who you are serving and bring your best self to camera (if on YouTube).

Why Sarah Therese Left The YouTube Beauty Community (and Grew To Nearly 1 Million Subscribers After)

Authenticity is everything today. When we follow the path that lights us up, we'll find success, no matter what. Our guest this week took that inspiration to a whole other level. She trashed over 200 videos and totally changed her niche, but instead of fading away to obscurity, she soared to almost 1 million subscribers! Lifestyle YouTuber Sarah Therese shares her story, process, and philosophy, plus all her video secrets! “I’d rather make videos I’m hugely passionate about for 10k people than ones I'm not for 200k people.” Sarah is a mom of three who has been on YouTube since she was a teenager. She used it as a way to find her own creative outlet away from her 2 siblings. In 2017 a conversation with a friend showed her that she could stay home with her kids and be creative and earn a decent income. So she dove into YouTube more seriously. She started in the beauty niche and racked up over 200k subscribers, and went full-time on YouTube. But over time life got more hectic and she grew away from beauty. So she changed the entire focus of her channel to health and beauty, and her subscribers came along for the ride! Since then she’s grown to almost 1 million subscribers and has several million views on her videos, all while running her one-woman show and homeschooling three kids! “People actually come back to my channel for me and just the things I have to say.” Sarah has a refreshing approach to YouTube that I think has made her impervious to the algorithms. When she switched niches entirely AND deleted hundreds of high performing videos, she gained subscribers, raving fans, brand deals, and revenue. It’s all because she’s passionate about her craft. She only focuses on improving for the next video, and she doesn’t stop to look at what others are doing. She doesn’t lead her life by what keywords are on-trend, she makes what she’s driven to make, no matter the performance. That’s worked out for her so far. You’re going to learn more about her philosophy, how she picks content ideas, her journey through changing niches and so much more. Enjoy! “There are too many people who sit on their past videos. Come up with new content more often.” Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

This Full-Time Harvard Student Went From 0-250K Subscribers in 1 Year with Sienna Santer

What’s the TRUE power of a niche? You hear so often that picking a niche is super important, but how much of a difference does it really make? Our guest this week, lifestyle YouTuber Sienna Santer started vlogging her experience with #dormlife at Harvard and virtually overnight became a viral success. We’re peeling back all the layers and exposing every single detail. No stone will be left unturned! “Who cares if I stand out a little bit, I’m here to do something different.” Sienna was always passionate about filming and editing videos for her friends and family from all the YouTubers she enjoyed watching. So when she took her gap year and traveled, she decided to throw up a few videos. They didn’t do great for her growth, but she enjoyed the process. When she moved into Harvard, she filmed her moving and dorm room decoration and thought she’d make a vlog one day, but with a new school and environment, time got away from her and she shelved that idea. That was until December. She edited together the videos she filmed on her iPhone and uploaded it. It went viral. Within a week it got over a million views - it’s sitting at over 5 million views right now. In 2 weeks she went from 2k to 35k subscribers. Now she has over 332k subscribers! “I have a really loyal fanbase that supports me no matter what I do.” People were hungry for her Harvard student perspective, and not many people were sharing it. So that was the niche she decided to stay in and dominate. She had an opportunity being a new student to speak to an audience that wants to go to Harvard themselves one day, or who wants to know what it’s like from someone seeing everything for the first time. As she levels up, there’ll be more and more opportunities to show different perspectives as she herself changes. One thing we need to pause and remember is that there are many viral hits that go extinct when the fame dies down.

Being Over 50 on YouTube with Dr. Becky Gillaspy

Worried that YouTube success is reserved for 20-year-olds? Well, no matter what age you’re at, you’re getting a ton of value from this episode! Health and Fitness YouTuber Dr. Becky Gillaspy is on this week and we’re talking about taking imperfect action and how that can pay off in a huge way. She started off focused on selling her programs but being on YouTube evolved her mission to provide her health knowledge and advice to women over 50. Now she has a thriving business and channel with over 275k subscribers! We’ll also be diving behind the scenes into her business, and how to use YouTube to blow it up! So you’re in for YouTube growth and business success in today's episode. Are you ready? “Video is the best vehicle for building trust and authority.” Dr. Becky started her channel to promote a product she put out on her website. She heard that adding videos to her blog would help her rank on Google. So she put up a couple of videos in 2012 and that was it, she never looked at it again… until she came back and saw that they got immense traction and growth. So she’d continue to upload content sporadically. It wasn’t until summer 2017 that she started taking her channel seriously, uploading once a week consistently. She found that she loved the creativity behind coming up with the right combination for a viral hit and decided to put her energy behind making her channel stand out. Now she’s at 275k subscribers and she’s not slowing down nor stopping! “I now think about my title before I have the video conceptualized in my brain.” She’s a strong advocate for starting where you are and taking that first step. In this episode we walked through one of her earlier videos where she was using a low quality borrowed camera, no microphone, zero lighting, noise everywhere - but that video has gone on to get 1.7 million views! We also cover how to find a place to belong and really thrive on YouTube no matter your age, how she gets 100 email opt-ins a day for her business, her failures and lessons along the way and so much more! Enjoy! “I get comments from people in Australia and the UK and it reminds me: this is truly an amazing time to be in business.” Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

YouTube Trends for 2020 (Why You Need To Pay Attention To These!)

Are you confident about what you need to do to stay on top of your YouTube game? One thing's for sure about YouTube and that's the fact that the platform is constantly changing so you need to be able to adapt and change too if you want to grow. Not to fear though, I've got your back! In this solo episode, I'm sharing the top six trends to include in your 2020 YouTube strategy. Originality is KEY Audience expectations are higher than ever and they're tired of seeing the same old videos over and over. That means the more original you are, the more people take notice. In 2020 there is a lot of copycatting going on, but it's so worth the time it takes to get creative and put your own spin on different ideas. Some YouTubers I love who are on top of this: - Alyssa Beltempo focuses on slow fashion, the opposite of fast fashion which is so popular. - Natalia Taylor's video about zodiac signs was something unique and she consistently puts out videos that stand out. - I just discovered Andrew Jihn. His channel is totally unexpected - finance mixed with magic. Understanding Your Audience You've heard it before but I'm saying it again because it's absolutely crucial. You need to know your audience inside out to be able to create content they will love. Again for the people in the back: understanding your audience is critical. Knowing your avatar or ideal listener means not only knowing their pain points but understanding what would pique their interest and get them clicking fast. In 2020 it's all about understanding what they're curious about. The Celebrity Human Experiment People are always going to be obsessed with the uber-rich and famous, rich. In 2020, creators that comment on or try the routines, schedules, diets, and exercises of the rich and famous will do well. Here are some of my faves: - Mixed Makeup comments on celebrity skin routines - Keltie O'Connor did a video about Tom Brady's workout and diet that went viral and now does a ton of those videos that do very well - One of my bootcampers, Laura Jane Atelier, blew up her vintage channel by talking about the makeup and fashion of old Hollywood movie stars - Abbey Sharp is a dietician that comments on famous celebrity and YouTuber diet habits Niche-Related Trend Swiping Before you run in on the latest video trend, check-in with yourself. Is it relevant? In 2020, creators who leverage trends to reach new audiences will get great results but only when they're applicable to your audience and your niche. Find ways to tweak the trends to be relevant to you or leave them for other creators. Use Your Education or Profession Leaning into your profession on YouTube isn't a new idea but more and more doctors, lawyers, engineers, therapists, etc. are getting onto the YouTube scene and using their education and expertise as a way to provide information in an entertaining way. In 2020, professionals who can capitalize on their knowledge to comment on trends will do well. Thumbnails are King If you've been here before you'll know how important thumbnails are. So many people get super excited to make an amazing video yet they shoot themselves in the foot by leaving the thumbnail as an afterthought. In 2020, incorporate thumbnails into your workflow and put just as much thought into it as your video. 50% of your success on YouTube has to do with how effective your thumbnails (and titles) are.

The Secrets To Picking VIRAL Video Topics For YouTube with Alyssa Beltempo

We’re giving you more ways to find awesome video ideas than you can handle! If you’ve ever wondered how to create videos people will want to watch, then wonder no more, because sustainable fashion YouTuber Alyssa Beltempo is here! She’s a scrappy, up and coming YouTuber who’s built her channel up to almost 80k subscribers with a few viral hits along the way. She’s talking all about how she picks video topics that eventually go viral and how to film your videos on the cheap! “Use what you have until you ABSOLUTELY have to buy something new” - Alyssa Beltempo Alyssa was blogging about fashion and doing wardrobe styling for years before joining YouTube. But 2 years ago she wanted to get off the fast fashion roller coaster and switch to slow fashion and sustainable style because it’s better for the world. So she started her channel. Things started slow and gradual but then she had her first viral video. About 9 months into her channel, she threw up a video about wearing a shirt dress in 20 different ways and it blew up. It affirmed for her that consistency - posting a new video every Sunday - wins in the end, and sticking to her niche of slow fashion is her path to gaining traction. She now has 77k subscribers and a few viral videos under her belt to talk about! “Even if I only have 1 person watching, maybe they’ll consider shopping less. Ultimately that's what it’s all about.” - Alyssa Beltempo She started YouTube with a mission to help people shop less and adopt sustainable fashion so at the start her view count wasn’t a huge priority for her. Now she’s seeing her channel as a way to impact more lives with her message. She didn’t start off super polished, her first videos were filmed with an iPhone and an old camera, but it’s been great to see her improve her setup and roll out new video ideas over her YouTube career. In today’s episode, we’re going to be breaking down a number of her viral videos and how she comes up with the ideas for the topics and film concepts for her videos, how to succeed with super minimal filming set up, working with ethical brands for sponsored videos, and so much more.

The Secret to Niching Down on YouTube Without Feeling Trapped with Bianca Renee

Growth can come in many shapes and sizes. Sometimes it’s slow and steady. Sometimes it’s all at once. This week’s guest, hair and beauty YouTuber Bianca Renee, turned an authentic moment into a viral hit which catapulted her into the curly hair niche she was meant for. We’re going to take a look behind-the-scenes to see how what she learned through her life prepared her for YouTube success, how she was able to turn a viral hit into a consistent channel, her experiences of working with brands like getting her face on an in-store ad, working with a manager and so much more! “I don’t know any brand that only uses one influencer, so there’s no reason we all can’t succeed.” Bianca says she started her youtube career by accident. At the time she was doing marketing and promotions for different companies and one day she had found some products that really worked for her curly hair. So she opened up her laptop and recorded a video about the rare find in her mother’s kitchen. That video went viral, hit a couple hundred thousand views in no time, and that gave her the idea to continue expanding on that thread, talking about how to apply the products and different things about curly hair. Even though that first real video went viral, she wasn’t all-in on YouTube yet. As a matter of fact, she didn’t follow up that video until 6 months later! “I know I’m not the only one struggling with these things, so if I can reach someone else going through it, that’s what makes it worth it.” When she started uploading twice a week that’s when she started to see the growth to her subscribers and engagement. About 2 years ago she committed to YouTube full-time when she realized that she could make more money at home focusing on making her curly hair videos. In this episode, she talks about her YouTube influencer journey, helping smaller YouTube influencers navigate the world of brand sponsorships, how to find and work with a manager to get you the best brand deals for your channel, and so much more!

How To Grow Your Beauty YouTube Channel In A Saturated Market with Michele Wang

I love talking to my successful bootcampers! I get to do two amazingly fun things: showcase these incredible women who I love so much, and also give you direct access to what made the biggest differences for them and grew their channels. Beauty YouTuber Michele Wang is here to share her journey from knitwear, to leaving her full-time job to pursue YouTube and her secrets for making videos built for engagement and growth! “I can’t emphasize consistency enough! Your viewers start to depend on it.” Michele came to the bootcamp in August 2018. She was getting burned out at her full-time job and saw the potential with YouTube as that income was going up. So she decided to join to capitalize on YouTube more and pursue going full-time. Before that, she was doing different things dabbling on YouTube. She would make knitwear videos but the process was slow and not sustainable so in February 2017, after moving to Las Vegas, she decided to switch her niche to beauty and makeup. Though she switched to makeup, she wasn’t putting much intention into niching or picking video topics, but a video recommendation she saw inspired her to join the bootcamp, and the rest is history. “Treat YouTube like a business. Credit card debt is the worst way to fund your business!” She had about 16k subscribers before joining the bootcamp. Now she has over 90k subscribers and is a full-time YouTuber, making money with AdSense and affiliates. The bootcamp gave her new tools and the confidence that the niche she picked was the right choice. In this episode we’ll talk about how she made the transition from her job to full-time on YouTube, her insane and consistent way of making videos, and her biggest takeaways from the bootcamp. Enjoy! “Negativity doesn’t really bother me. I have pretty thick skin at this point, I don’t care.” Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

From ZERO to HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of SUBSCRIBERS on YouTube in 2 Months with Kenna

There’s no such thing as an overnight success, but every once in awhile, something happens that just makes you wonder. Like this week’s guest who decides to throw up a video, and not even optimizes thumbnails or descriptions, but 10 days later gets millions of views! Biochemist and YouTuber Kenna is here to break down that overnight success and she’s telling us why it was actually several years in the making, and giving you the clues to make that a process you can follow for your next viral hit! “Once I stopped questioning myself, I started making videos that did a lot better.” When Kenna started out on YouTube, she was looking for an outlet to answer the common questions she was getting from her skincare line customers - she started her own skincare line at 18 while she was still getting her degree. She wasn’t growing then, so she didn’t put much attention and effort into it. But one day she decided to record herself giving her Biochemist’s review of Jaclyn Hill lipstick, and that video ended up getting 1.4 million views! With that viral hit, she was forced to grow up as an influencer real fast. And when she followed it up with part 2 of the review, which got almost 1 million views, she decided to take her channel more seriously. “I’m taking baby steps to grow to the level where my viral growth has gone.” She’s now running her own skincare line that she sold to the natural skincare company she now works for and at 23 is overseeing a number of product lines, from quality control to distribution to retail outlets. She’s now at over 200k subscribers and is using the feedback from her followers and subscribers to upgrade her channel and how she approaches her content over time. In this episode, we’ll be talking about that viral hit, how she’s following it up to become a full-fledged YouTube influencer, and how you can use your superpowers to carve out a relevant and substantial niche for yourself on YouTube. Enjoy! “I wouldn’t do content on someone else’s skincare brand because I wouldn’t be able to authentically speak about it.” Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

We’re getting technical! “If you make content that people are interested in, they will watch it and you’ll have job security.” It may look simple and obvious now that she’s made a comeback and doubled her subscribers, but when she came back, she had a dead channel. Her old videos were getting a trickle of views, and the new her wasn’t jiving for some. Sometimes it was discouraging to see the subscriber numbers plummet when she posted new content. But she kept with it. She kept her positive attitude and eventually got to a turning point. She made a video on exposing America’s Next Top Model and that started her rise again. She maintained that momentum and struck gold again by hitting her most-watched video which was also a sponsored video about Zodiac Signs. It got over 5 million views! She wasn’t only back, but now, she’s sitting pretty at almost 1.8 million subscribers. “Being original, new and innovative is always my #1 priority” In this episode, we pick up from where we left off and talk about what videos sparked her comeback, her insanely genius process for coming up with video ideas, the surprising way she shoots and edits her videos and so much more. We also get a moment where she’s completely open and raw about her experience being a successful YouTube influencer, that you’re going to want to hear if you’re interested in going down the same path. Enjoy! “I don’t consume that much content. I just produce it. That’s the beauty of being an artist.” Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

Mom of 3 Makes $300k/year from YouTube with ClutterBug

We’ve seen a lot of diversity on this podcast. I love talking to successful YouTubers because there are just so many ways to build successful and profitable channels. This season we’ve seen someone take up to 2 days to film 1 video, this week we’re finding out what it looks like on the other end of the spectrum. Mom, YouTuber and CEO Cassandra aka ClutterBug shares how she raises 3 kids, plus runs a successful channel of over 400k subscribers and makes $300k a year in all her businesses while doing everything in her power to not make anything feel like work! “Be consistent. Because if you love talking about something, the opportunities will come.” Cassandra’s overnight success was 11 years in the making. She started on YouTube in 2008. Monetizing was the furthest thing from her mind, she was just excited to share her organizing videos. But over the next 4 years, her channel hit 100k subscribers and she flipped the AdSense switch and money started coming in. So much money that she closed down her home daycare business she started to earn an income as a stay home mom. On the high on being able to do what she loved and get paid for it at the same time, her channel was unfortunately abruptly shut down. All that income and the earning power she built up in her videos for 4 years vanished overnight. “I treat my channel like a business, but I’m loving it like a hobby.” In the moment it was devastating to start over from scratch, but eventually, she’d see that it was the best thing to ever happen to her because it allowed her to build her brand Clutterbug. She was able to work smarter, and in 2 years she was back to earning what she was before, long before hitting the 100k subscriber mark again.  Now she’s able to be fully present with her family after school and work when she feels driven and motivated. It’s not about the money for her, but for the fun and growth that she derives from what she does, even if that means leaving money on the table. In this episode, she shares all her income streams and how she has built them up to generate over 300k a year for her with zero employees, how she’s able to monetize her channel with doing sponsored videos or brand deals, how her first book deal came together and how she gets all her books to hit the bestseller lists in an organic way, her strategy for YouTube growth without being yucky, clickbaity or feeling like work, how she built an accredited and affordable certification program for organizers and so much more.

The Viral Video That Changed Her Life Forever with Keltie O'Connor

Fasten your seatbelts, the YouTube Power Hour Podcast is back and better than ever! We’re kicking things off by giving you the step-by-step, behind-the-scenes of a viral video hit and breaking it all down for you. Fitness YouTuber Keltie O’Connor is our guest with the most today and I don’t think you’re ready for what she’s about to share. Let the rollercoaster ride begin! “You should have a purpose behind youtube and your channel, but your content can change with the trends.” Keltie found her love for video when a very progressive teacher in high school saw her struggling to write essays and suggested she do them in video instead. That love blossomed and followed her into university where she spent the next few years learning YouTube and honing her perspective as a fitness YouTuber. But in August 2018 she realized she was burnt out. She didn’t like the superficial content she was creating and she needed a break. So she decided to take her first vacation in 3 years and spend a week in Toronto. After that week she felt the pull. She packed her things and decided to move to Toronto from Edmonton and go all-in on YouTube. She spent her life savings, worked day and night, bartended on weekends to pay the bills and buy equipment and fund her to go to fitness networking events. By the start of 2019, her growth skyrocketed - she tells the story of the first time a video of hers went majorly viral and it’s a roller coaster ride you have to hear for yourself! “The only way you’ll learn what does well is by doing it, and no one is watching when you start so take it as a blessing.” Immediately after the high of success, she was thrown into the depths: dealing with creative burnout, overwork, second-guessing her message to her newfound audience and barely sleeping. 6 months of building her life around YouTube turned into one year. But she was driven by a light she felt was at the end of the tunnel, that if she could continue to sustain the pressure, it would all be worth it. And in March 2018, it all happened. She finally hit 100k subscribers and she was able to cut her bartending jobs and finally focus on YouTube full time! You’re going to hear the full story, all the ups and downs and highs and lows from starting, her viral hits, and misses and the journey that led her to this moment. Enjoy! “Every time you’re making videos it’s so tedious but the second you press publish, you get that high and the video is out, and then you chase it again.” Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

The Key to Establishing Your Brand with Stephanie Ledda aka SMLX0

What do you represent? One of the most difficult aspects of establishing yourself as an influencer is finding that thing that makes you unique and leveraging your ‘superpower’ to stand out in a crowded field of YouTubers. The platform has evolved into a lucrative business, and that means your channel is its own brand. And when your personality matches up with a beauty brand, collaborations follow. Today’s guest is a YouTube veteran with a unique brand identity who is ready to share how her individuality as an influencer has led to some awesome opportunities. Stephanie Ledda is a 26-year-old New York native with a passion for beauty and a unique eye for fashion. Her channel, SMLx0, has over 900,000 subscribers who look to Stephanie for inspiring hair, makeup and styling tutorials. She was a college student when she started her channel in 2009. A business management and marketing major, Stephanie enjoyed watching YouTube videos and decided to try it out herself. Using the webcam on her MacBook to make videos in her dorm room, she created celebrity-inspired looks and gained a modest following. Stephanie considered YouTube a fun hobby, but she didn’t realize its potential to become a career until StyleHaul and the YouTube Partner Program reached out to her in 2011. After graduating from college, she tried to balance a traditional job in marketing at a bridal boutique with her channel, but quickly recognized that she couldn’t do both – and she really missed YouTube! Certain she could support herself through the channel, Stephanie quit her marketing job to pursue YouTube full-time. She definitely made the right decision, considering that she’s partnered with major brands like Schwarzkopf, Maybelline, Sephora, Ulta Beauty, and Tarte. Today she chats about sharing your personal life with your followers, the value of a degree, and how she chooses brands for sponsored videos.  Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

Why You Don't Need To Be An Extrovert To Be Popular On YouTube with Silvia Reis of ellebangs

"Don't try to be something you think people want." YouTube is filled with bubbly and outgoing personalities who have become YouTube stars in their own right. However, having a YouTube channel is not exclusively for extroverts. If you have passion and knowledge to share, then what you actually have is the magic formula to become popular on YouTube! One such popular YouTube influencer is Silvia Reis, who goes by the name ellebangs in her YouTube channel. She's a popular hair guru and a Redken trained hairstylist living in San Francisco who shares professional DIY tips about hair color, cut, and styling to help people get their dream hair while saving some money at the salon. "Consistency gets people attracted." Shy and reserved, Silvia's personality doesn't quite fit the mold of a typical YouTube influencer.

She loves everything hair and makeup and thought YouTube would be a good way to engage with other like-minded people. Currently, Silvia has almost half a million YouTube subscribers and 49 million video views. "The audience I have, I want it to be super genuine."

From Kitchen Counter to Multi-Million Dollar Company: Thrive Causemetics Founder Karissa Bodnar Shares Her Story

I’m in love with this brand and this entrepreneur’s story and you’re about to be too! If you’re thinking of starting something to have a massive reach and impact, you’re going to want to take notes because we have Karissa Bodnar, owner of Thrive Causemetics giving away all the inside scoop into how she grew her business from zero to what it is today. She seriously held nothing back and we go into everything! “I believe that when we are confident, we are unstoppable.” Karissa and Thrive Causemetics has received accolades like the “Fastest-growing vegan beauty company”, “Forbes 30 under 30 for 2019” and INC magazine’s “Badass Female Founders”, but before all that Karissa grew up on a farm in Washington State. She loved creating makeup from roses from her mom's garden and crayons. Since then she has been deep into all things makeup: working as a makeup artist at Sephora during college, working at Clarisonic after college and in L'oreal’s luxury division after they acquired Clarisonic. But when she hit a brick wall after losing her friend to cancer at 24, she came to the realization that she had to stop waiting and finally build the beauty company of her dreams. She was passionate about doing more than just selling beauty products but empowering women as well. And a month later she started Thrive Causemetics on her kitchen counter.  “If our product wasn’t great, people would not buy it.” She funded it all herself, making product formulas on her kitchen counter and fulfilling all the orders out of her 1-bedroom apartment. As she grew, she reached out to people for help, and along the way she captured the hearts of her amazing customers and their word of mouth on social media moved the needle for her. She went from making a thousand dollars a day in sales to hundreds of thousands of dollars a day in sales, in just a few days, and kept growing from there.

It didn’t matter if you have dark circles or blemishes of any kind, makeup was there to wipe it all away. She grew up, left modeling and started producing, got married and had kids, but she never stopped being a makeup junkie. Around the time makeup palettes started coming out, she had an idea about having a built-it-yourself palette, where you can only have the colors that match you, instead of a bunch of colors you’ll never want.

When she started working with influencers, she was able to double her business in a year! No wonder she’s all in on it now. In this episode she dives deep into how she thinks about influencers and who are the types of people she goes after, how the current PR package list saturation and audience burnout is forcing her to adapt her approach for finding new influencers, how to stand out to a brand and not be a drop in the sea of pitches brands receive, and so much more! “You need to always follow your gut.

Are You Being Authentically YOU on YouTube? with C Key

If you’ve ever searched for the secret to your YouTube success, here's some advice. It takes a drive to succeed like never before to make it on YouTube, and our guest today has it in spades. Beauty YouTuber C Key brings her electrifying and magnetic personality onto the show and shares with us her journey to 130k subscribers and everything she’s learned and overcome along the way! “Be yourself because you don’t have to try to maintain that, it comes naturally.” C Key has been a YouTuber since 2012, but actually, before she started doing makeup videos, she thought the whole thing was gross. It wasn’t until her friend did her makeup for a banquet that she got bitten by the bug. She loved how she could take her already confident and beautiful self and quickly level up a ton with makeup. And when that friend wasn’t available to do her makeup again, she took to YouTube to learn it all herself. That curiosity turned into a passion and that passion drove her to give back to the beauty community by starting her own channel and giving her pros and cons on the products being released today. Now she has almost 130k subscribers, she calls her tribe “supporters”, she runs a jewelry business and is on her way to doing her own thing full-time. “Don’t focus on the numbers. If you’ve got what it takes, your confidence will attract everyone.” C Key loves doing videos with her family. She says out of all the awesome tutorials and reviews she’s done, it's the ones where she can create content with them that are the most impactful to her. She has two daughters, one 23 and one 18 and she wholeheartedly believes that you’re worth whatever it is you set your heart on. That’s what drove her to open her P.O. Box and start tagging and pitching brands only 3 months after she launched her channel - if other YouTubers can get brand deals, so can she, so why not go for it? We’ll dive into these and other personality traits that make her so energetic and successful on YouTube in this episode. Jump in! “I believe that if you put some faith behind what you want, things will begin to move.”  Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

9 Super Important Things You Need To Do When Feeling Bad About Your YouTube Channel

Is your YouTube channel getting you down? Maybe it’s not growing as fast as you expected it to and you’re feeling frustrated with the content grind. I’m here to help! In this solo episode, I take you through 9 powerful things you can do to blast beyond the frustration, get back on track and go after the results that you want. If you’ve been having a tough time and you almost feel like giving up, I made this for you. “Your close-knit community serves as a little army against negativity.” Comparisonitis, fear of missing out (FOMO), burnout, guilt, trolls in your comments section, negative validation and imposter syndrome are all issues we have to come across as people in the YouTube space. And it can be hard to deal with. We want to show up for our audience but with that comes so much baggage: when we show up, how did we perform compared to other people in our industry? We want to be up on every trend so we aren’t left behind, but rushing and posting non-stop is leaving us burnt out. And when we do post, the negative comments that come in always tear us down, even when they’re in a stream of positive comments. And finally, who are you to be making videos about this topic? What are your qualifications? We’re putting those fears and feelings to rest with these 9 steps in today's episode. “Ultimately, most people want to make a change and have a positive impact.” If you loved this episode and you’re looking for a way to implement all the 9 steps and have a proven plan to build your YouTube channel, then you’d be a good candidate for my Zero-to-Influence Bootcamp. If you want to know what it’s like and what it’s all about, I’m doing a free masterclass on May 30th where I’m walking you through the 5 things you should avoid doing so your YouTube channel can grow, and I’m giving you the exact strategies in my Zero-to-Influence Framework. I’ve spent months creating this training and it’s finally time to share it with you! See you there! “When you’re focusing on your strengths then you know you’re presenting the best of yourself.” Check out the show notes Are you ready to explode your YouTube channel and step into YOUR role as a YouTube influencer?

STOP Doing This on YouTube NOW with Erika Vieira

Do you get secretly frustrated or exasperated when a competitor or friend gets better results than you? If they’re getting more views while you’re struggling to grow, it can feel like the worst. Here's the good news: it happens to all of us! But you won’t show up as the best version of yourself when you’re comparing your self-worth, value and your work with others. On this solo episode, I’m talking all about how to break the pattern and free yourself from comparisonitis! Let’s do this! “If you make decisions based on what someone else is doing, it will take you down the road of distraction from you being the best version of yourself." Comparisonitis happens to all of us, it happens to me and it happens to my clients too. I get a bit jealous when I see people who've started their podcasts long after I did, popping up on Forbes lists and I see them - by my own perception - doing much better than me. A Client of mine I was working with for a little while finally hit the 20k subscribers mark. She was so happy and celebrating but totally went flat when she found out that her friend, who she encouraged to start her channel, blew passed her and got to 35k subscribers. Why do we do this? We have our own audiences, they have theirs, we’re measuring something that isn’t equal, yet it still hurts so much. “Unfollow and unsubscribe from anyone who brings out jealousy or comparisonitis out of you.” So how do you fight this? How do you navigate the shark-infested waters of comparing yourself to others on Instagram and YouTube? Well, it won’t be easy but you can do it, and I talk about how in this episode. Like everything, it starts with being aware of the negative behavior and where it shows up. At the end of the day, you don’t want to be in a bubble, avoiding every video to stop yourself from comparing. I know you want to take in inspiration and not allow the negative influences or your comparisonitis to act up. So, let’s talk about how you get more aware of your comparisonitis and create a catalyst for you to shift it for good. “Use your why as a filter. If what you want to do makes sense to why you’re doing it then do that video. If not, then no one will want to watch that.” Check out the show notes Are you ready to explode your YouTube channel and step into YOUR role as a YouTube influencer?

Getting Real and Vulnerable: My Story

Time to get really personal and vulnerable ladies... it’s storytime! I’m sharing my entire journey with you, my ups and downs, how I fell in love with YouTube and talking to you about it every week, what I’ve learned from my failures and why I do this podcast for you! I hope you’re ready for this honest and open conversation. “I started thinking: if I'm going to continue with this podcast, I need to help more people.” It’s funny to look back and think that I’ve spent so much time helping you and ladies like you to grow your channels for years, and I didn’t have a big channel myself. Not too long ago, I felt like an imposter whenever I thought about it. But I realized that all the time I could’ve spent growing my channel, I instead used it to grow many channels for my podcast guests who became my friends, and the people who’ve listened to my episodes and reached out for help. I realized that the information I’ve shared in my courses and in the Facebook group, and with anyone who’s asked, came from the experience of learning from several channels, instead of just my own. “You can come up with all the reasons not to do something, and sometimes that negative voice takes over, but sometimes you have to get over yourself.” I went from hating a job at Jamba Juice, working at Nordstrom, selling $55 million worth of real estate properties, trying to become an actor, starting an apparel business with my sister, getting burnt out and selling the apparel business with my sister, getting back in corporate America and having two girls, to finally finding something that fits. Doing this podcast and helping you with my programs feels like home. It feels like what I was meant to do and everything I’ve learned up to this point has made me totally awesome at this. Ready to hear the full journey? Well, listen up. "I knew I was going to do something in business, I just didn't know what."

How Blogger The Rachel Review Transformed Her YouTube Channel and Grew 40k Subscribers

Looking for some clarity around how to build a successful channel while balancing a full-time job? Want to go from a channel that’s confusing and flat to one that's vibrant and engaging? It’s time for another bootcamper success story! With a few viral hits under her belt and some massive growth, our guest fashion YouTuber Rachel from The Rachel Review is here to share her journey before and after the boot camp, and what she’s doing to be on track for 100k subscribers this year! “If you’re doing YouTube to be famous online and make a lot of money, that will get you through the door, but it won’t keep you there.” Rachel is passionate about being an entrepreneur and running her own business, but her early journeys into it ended in failure. After she closed up shop on her online business, she started working for a wastewater management company so she could gain a mentor and hopefully learn enough to take another shot at entrepreneurship. During that time, her boyfriend pushed her to start her YouTube channel and share her passion for fashion. And she did, but it barely got off the ground with only 250 subscribers. She was growing slowly and getting discouraged until she found out about our Zero to Influence bootcamp. Now she’s at 38k subscribers and confidently on her way to close out the year at 100k. “No one is going to like everything you have to say. People all have different experiences.” Learning how to find her why and getting clear on what she’s good at were two of the most impactful things the boot camp helped her with. They opened her eyes to what she should really be doing on YouTube. If you’ve been thinking about getting started and telling yourself that success is unattainable and you can’t be the next YouTube star, she’s here to tell you that she was right where you are, and she did it. And if she can do it, you can too. Her message for you is, “You have to risk it to get the biscuit!” “Every video you put out and comment you get, you’re getting an understanding of what your community wants and needs from you.” - Erika Check out the show notes Are you ready to explode your YouTube channel and step into YOUR role as a YouTube influencer?

The Surprising Truth Into What It's REALLY Like To Be A YouTube Celebrity with Cora Diane AKA Vintage or Tacky

Wanna learn about what it takes to remain relevant on YouTube for over a decade and how the handle and thrive under the toll it takes? Our guest today, beauty, plus-sized fashion and now lifestyle YouTuber Cora Diane takes the hot seat and authentically shares her journey with us! “I never take on sponsorships that I feel compromise my morals or I wouldn’t feel comfortable recommending to a friend.” Cora started her channel in 2007, doing it for fun as everyone was at that time. She was inspired by the makeup videos and wanted to start making her own. It was until 2010 that she realized she was making more money from YouTube than she was at her job at the Mac store. Now she’s a YouTube celebrity who’s been reinventing herself and staying ahead of the game while making a full-time living from her channel. “You’re gonna have moments when you question what you’re doing. There’s never a trajectory that’s always on the up.” She’s super passionate about sustainability and preserving the environment. She’s really played her part in being the voice of using cosmetics that aren’t harmful to yourself or the environment. What really inspired me about Cora is that she’s very in tune to what’s truly a fit for her. She isn’t just doing her channel about the money and she isn’t satisfied with the current state of the beauty industry on YouTube. In this episode, she shares her experience remaining relevant and toeing the fine line between keeping in integrity with herself while also making a living on YouTube. “People love to watch people who are unapologetically themselves and passionately aligned with their purpose” - Erika Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

You don’t have to be running a 6 or 7 figure business to be able to teach other people.” Judi developed her skills at LinkedIn by putting in the time and effort to grow her profile over the years. At first, she was using it to network and get clients and job opportunities. In her 20 years in corporate, she never felt satisfied. She was inspired by Marie Forleo and saw the impact she was making and she was drawn to sharing her story with video as well. Now she helps people get leads, clients and huge connections on LinkedIn and in her 9 months making videos, she has reached 2 million views! “Even if you can only spend 10-20 minutes a day, go all in and comment on 10 people’s content.” LinkedIn has been the unsexy social media platform for so long, but it's making a comeback.

Do You Need To Be Beautiful To Be Successful On YouTube?

Are you hesitating to get started on YouTube because you think only extremely beautiful people are successful on the platform? In my solo episode, I’m breaking apart that myth and limiting belief for you today and giving you the clarity and tactics to make a complete shift and start making videos with pride! “You need to have some self-awareness and really understand who you are.” There are 1.9 billion YouTube users, some are uploading 400 hours of videos every hour of the day and some are watching 1 billion hours of videos every single day. There’s a 100% chance that a great number of those creators don’t fit universal standards of beauty. We’ll get to universal beauty in a second, but you have to ask yourself, why aren’t you one of those people putting out video? Is it really beauty or it that just an excusing covering up something else? “Lean into your strengths, they’re the cornerstone of your channel.” We dive into all of this today and I hope you get to the root of the issue, if it is an excuse and work through it. Everyone is beautiful in their own way, it doesn’t matter what anyone says, or said in the past. Beauty is subjective, what someone finds not beautiful, others will worship the ground you walk on. In all those variables, you need to control how you feel about yourself. because if you don’t think you’re beautiful and worthy of making your voice and face heard, it’s better to hang up your ambition and don’t even start making videos for YouTube. Tough love but true. I know you’re not giving up so let’s dive into how to shift the negatives in this episode! “So many people are preoccupied with what they don’t have. They’re chasing something that’s incredibly difficult to achieve.” Check out the show notes Are you ready to explode your YouTube channel and step into YOUR role as a YouTube influencer?

How Dr. Mona Vand Grew 200k YouTube Subscribers In Only 1 Year

Want a super simple way to grow your channel to hundreds of thousands of subscribers? We’ve got the goods for you today. It’s so simple you’re gonna wonder what the catch is, but our guest beauty and wellness YouTuber Dr. Mona Vand will be breaking down her explosive growth to 200k subscribers in 1 year and give you real actionable steps to follow! So listen up ladies! “It’s exhausting to be somebody that you’re not.” - Erika Vieira Dr. Mona Vand started in a place where a lot of us start out. She was very hesitant to jump into YouTube because she felt it was too saturated. But after building her brand on Instagram and Snapchat, and wanting to give even more value and go into even more details on what she was teaching - going into detail is what she loves more than anything - she decided to try it out. For her first set of videos, she did everything wrong and barely grew at all. But in December 2017 she scrapped everything and started over. She dropped the persona she was trying to be, an embraced her flaws and all, and that’s when she started to grow. One of her new videos hit 5k views and she was off to the races after that and hasn’t stopped growing since! “Create really good quality content. Even if it takes a while, it will come.” - Dr. Mona Vand What’s unique about her experience was that she started already comfortable with being on camera, after having done many lives and stories on IG and Snapchat. One hack she used was to not reinvent the wheel. She was already doing well with her lives, so why not record her YouTube videos as she does her lives? If you watch any of her videos, you can tell how well that works! She is a lot more calm and herself than her older videos, and she’s gaining resonance with her audience because of it. She is a big supporter of just being yourself and focus on creating your best quality content and you’ll grow. Tune in to the episode to hear all her other amazing lessons. “If you have the means to hire an editor, it’s the best money spent.” - Dr. Mona Vand Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

Can You Train Your Brain for YouTube Success? with Dr. Shannon Irvine

Are you struggling with believing in yourself? Are you having trouble growing your channel as fast as you want? Those two may be very tightly connected to each other. But not to worry, Neuropsychologist and Coach Dr. Shannon Irvine is here to help you break those mental chains! We get really in-depth into ways you can unlock your potential and free your mind to create and attract the growth and success you’be been hoping for! “You’ve gotta burn the bridges of non-belief or hope.” Dr. Shannon Irvine has been helping entrepreneurs to tap into the power of their minds in her practice. I love how she takes “woo woo” topics and explains them with science and facts. Like the fact that we see and pay attention to 9 times more negative things than positive things, which explains a lot about why we go into a shame spiral over a single negative comment. Through her work, she helps to hardwire in your mind the exact things you want so that they’ll come to you easily and a lot more fun. “The most successful people have figured out their own thinking and have taken their thoughts off auto-pilot.” Her approach and belief towards how we work are really fascinating. Instead of identifying yourself as a YouTuber who’s striving to success, how much differently would you operate if you were coming from a place of generosity and abundance instead? Wouldn’t you be a lot more energized and excited to create if you knew that your success is on its way to you effortlessly? We’ll break down how to program that mindset today so you’re off to the races. Everyone has something to work on, even her, and there’s not one person on this earth without a limiting belief, so stop feeling alienated and alone and come join the limit busting party! “90% of our daily actions and decisions come from our subconscious mind.” Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

The Shocking Truth About the YouTube Beauty Community with xSparkage

How do you weather that storm, build your channel and gain the success you’re driving for? Our guest this week - beauty, fashion and lifestyle YouTuber Leesha aka xSparkage - shares her journey through the complicated and controversial world of beauty and how she’s made it through so you can too! “The beauty community is supposed to lift people up and show them that they can be artistic.” Leesha is a veteran YouTuber.

What Fyre Festival Means for Influencer Marketing in 2019

The Fyre festival was one of the biggest scams in human history - thousands of people showed up for a party but got chaos instead. But it’s also a perfect example of the power of well-executed influencer marketing! On this solo round, I talk Fyre festival details and what you can learn to do and to avoid as an influencer! “There's a level of responsibility that everyone has to have because when influencers are involved, people take action.” Imagine it: a magical escape, beautiful scenery, models and the promise of affluence and exclusivity… Who wouldn’t sign up for that dream? Especially when all the influencers you know, love and trust are all talking about it? The “Bigger than Coachella” Fyre Festival fell flat and it really cast a spotlight on influencer marketing. The huge question of the day is, are brands going to be more careful with their budgets - keeping most of it out of the hands of influencers from now on, or will they see it as a successful proof of what could be and dive in head first? “The time frame was way too short, their budget was way too low.” If you haven’t seen the Netflix or Hulu documentaries yet, try to watch them with a skeptical eye. Neither of them has unbiased accounts of the event. The Netflix doc was made by the same people who promoted the festival - and there’s a lot of controversy surrounding their hand in the scam. The makers of Hulu doc, though they interviewed the kingpin himself Billy Mcfarland, paid him for his side of the story. So, there’s dirt on both sides, but both are still worth the watch. What do you think: do Ja Rule, Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and the other models and influencers share in some of the blame, or were they all duped just like everyone else? “Influencer marketing works. Influencers are the new celebrities.” Check out the show notes Join the Zero to Influence Bootcamp waitlist Download your FREE guide: 6 Tools YouTubers Use to Get Thousands of Video Views Don't forget to join the Beauty and the Vlog Facebook group for collaborations, YouTube advice, support and more!

How 18 Year Old Alivia D'Andrea Grew a Million Subscribers in Two Years

You’ll want to listen to this one right now! "You can’t go wrong when following your heart. Start with that." This powerful young woman is only 18 but she’s a total giant, and it’s not even because she’s grown to over 1 million subscribers in 2 years. It’s because she’s using her platform to impact people and spread the message of self-love, self-acceptance and being of service to others. She started YouTube out of a desire to want to help and connect with people and stuck with it when all of her other friends gave up on their channels. When she found that more people were resonating with her flexibility and fitness videos than her beauty videos, she dove into flexibility with both feet. That commitment to her purpose drove her and her channel to new heights. “People like to see vulnerability because we like to see our sorrows echoed into the lives of others.”  Alivia is in her freshman year at the University of California Riverside and the future before her is already very bright. I can’t wait to see what more she will create in the world. In this episode, you’re going to learn about the power of vulnerability and how she uses it as a magnet to bring people to her.

The Secret to YouTube Success That You Need To Know with Raven Elyse

Success is something we all want to achieve but it’s not always easy to come by. You’ve probably heard many YouTube content creators talk about their stories, how they first started their channels, how they struggled, and how they eventually gained thousands of subscribers to finally achieve YouTube success. However, when you look at the sheer number of YouTube channels out there, you can definitely say not everyone becomes successful.  So, what is the secret to YouTube success? "YouTube was my guilty pleasure." Luckily, the gorgeous and adorable Raven Elyse from Austin, Texas is sharing her own secret to YouTube success! "Always, real-life experience is better than reading anything in a book." Known for her transparency and her slightly sarcastic sense of humor, Raven often describes her life as #shambles. She first started posting DIY, hair, and makeup YouTube videos just for fun back when she was only a freshman in high school. By the time she graduated from college in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design, she was already a full-time media influencer. Her channel has grown consistently over time and she recently reached over 1 million subscribers and 95 million video views! "I naturally came up and grew as YouTube grew." How she did do it? What is the secret? Well, the secret is this: Being truly passionate about YouTube itself and not doing it for the money, fame, or views. Act as if YouTube will not pay you anything or get you any type of fame or recognition. You have to be THAT passionate about it, otherwise, you will give up and/or burn out. As for Raven, whether it’s through her YouTube channel, blog, Instagram, or Snapchat, her ultimate goal is to entertain, educate, and inspire others. That’s her passion.

The Viral Video Beauty Queen Reveals Her YouTube Secrets with Mayra Garcia of MayraTouchofGlam

Have you had thoughts about starting a YouTube channel but don’t have the confidence or are too shy to take the plunge? Check out today’s episode and see how our guest overcame her fears and shyness to become YouTube’s viral video beauty queen. “We all do this because we love it but it is nice to get recognized for your work.” Mayra Isabel Garcia, of Mayratouchofglam, knew from the start that she wanted to have her own YouTube channel. But she didn’t always have the confidence from the get-go nor did she expect to end up with a viral video that would boost her to stardom. Now, her beauty channel has around 1.7 million subscribers and 111 million views. “I think my craziest videos are the ones that help me out the most.” As a freelance makeup artist, Mayra was encouraged by the people around her to start posting her own makeup tutorials. She initially did it just for fun. It wasn’t until she was tapped by StyleHaul that she realized she could actually get paid and build a career around it. She quit her day job and devoted more time to her channel, posting videos a lot more consistently than when she first started. Rather than just sticking to makeup tutorials, Mayra felt the need to step out of her comfort zone and try different things. Just to change things up a bit, she started doing challenges and reviews of certain products and is now having a lot more fun with it all. When she had her first viral video, she was shocked. She absolutely didn’t expect that it would get over 1 million views overnight and hit 15 million views in just a week. Although there’s no formula for making a viral video, Mayra says that it’s her craziest videos that help her out the most.

Gaining popularity as a blogger or YouTuber doesn’t happen overnight. It takes hard work to put content out there consistently and have people notice you. Since Instagram started, the platform has helped content creators gain subscribers from all over the world. It’s a safe bet that gaining followers using a growth hack for Instagram would also give you a bump in followers on your blog and an increase in your YouTube subscribers as well. “Facebook is like Pinterest, it’s so underused by bloggers.” So, what’s a good growth hack for Instagram? Let’s find out from our guest, Angela Lanter. In this episode, she talks about her best growth hack for Instagram, her journey as a content creator, and a whole lot more! “New platforms come out all the time and you don’t know what’s going to take off.” Born and raised in Northeast Ohio, Angela took her first job as a hairstylist and makeup artist working at a small salon giving makeovers for Glamour photos at the age of 15. While in college, she continued to pursue her love of beauty by freelancing for proms, weddings, and other special events. Even after getting a “real job,” she continued to sharpen her beauty skills by watching YouTube tutorials at night for inspiration. “I think YouTube will always be around.” After many years of watching and learning, it was time to start creating her content. In February 2013, Angela launched “Hello Gorgeous” and, in October, her subsequent YouTube channel. By December, she was named as an official PopSugar Select Blogger and was featured as the #1 ShopStyle Lay Down Campaign Blogger.

How to Build a Strong Personal Brand on YouTube with Sierra Schultzzie

Do you want a fulfilling career where you get to be 100% creative and make a great living doing only what you're great at for the people you love being around? Who doesn’t! Here’s a great case study on how to get there. In this episode, Fashion and Body Positivity YouTuber Sierra Schultzzie shares her passion and energy with us, along with the details on how she carved out her own niche and gained 380k subscribers along the way! “I make sure that as much as I put into the content, I also spend enough time focusing on getting eyes on it because it deserves a chance to have people see it.” Sierra is now a successful, full-time YouTuber. But it didn’t happen overnight. She started in 2015 while in her freshman year at college doing musical theatre.  Her then boyfriend, now husband inspired her to try YouTube as a creative outlet and to try to become the next Jenna Marbles. She hesitated, but after she made her first video, she caught the bug, and she’s been posting a new video every Friday since. “Don’t pigeonhole yourself - give yourself room to try out new formats, and new series and new ideas and see what your audience likes.” She took a while to find out what she was uniquely good at and qualified to lend her perspective to. According to her, she wasn't great at makeup, so that was a bust. There was something about fashion drew her in, but the content there only represented two extremes of the spectrum: the thin ladies or the plus-sized. So she decided to be the voice and face of the middle, the curvy population. Now she’s posting twice a week and has almost 400k subscribers! She’s a queen on a mission to inspire all ladies to be confident in themselves and embrace their curves. “It’s nice that what took off on my channel is something that I truly am passionate about and something I’m fulfilled by.” Check out the show notes.

Building Your Personal Brand as a YouTube Creator with Erin May Henry

How do you build a personal brand that truly fits who you are? In this episode, YouTuber, Podcast Host and Personal Branding Mentor Erin May Henry stops by to give you all the juicy details on connecting with your true, unique selves and making you shine! “Find that thing about you that is going to make you stand out, and there always is going to be something.” Erin is an Australian Personal Brand Building Rockstar! She started her YouTube channel in 2014 while she was studying Public Relations and Business in college. She dived in when she discovered that becoming an influencer would be huge in the future. And that has paid huge dividends because she now has over 73k subscribers and a combined 4 million video views! Since starting, her channel has undergone many iterations. She was into lifestyle and fitness, then mindset and motivation, but she’s really found her home with personal branding after exploring a lot of things you’re going to learn on this episode. “Maybe you can go so far into your mastery that you stand out from everyone else because you are the thought leader.” She is really big on personal development, and her videos on teaching about that have been huge contributors to her channel’s growth. She fell into it as she was building her social media marketing business after she left college in 2016. All her friends were hunting for internships and jobs, but she was drawn more to entrepreneurship. That journey was not easy. Her own fears and self-doubt plagued her, but through consuming content from gurus like Tony Robbins and Marie Forleo, she was able to push through the fear. Now, inspired by those two, she’s built her business coaching practice and is teaching the things that helped her get through her rut. “It's not about overcoming fear entirely, it's about understanding how to work through and work with that fear when it does arise.” Erin is a big believer in taking action. Dive in as soon as possible and don’t wait until all your stars are aligned. Risk analysis is overrated and you can learn a lot more from experience so don’t let the unknown keep you from doing. Because of her working as a bartender and later working for a wine company while studying at college, she’s developed a thorough passion for wine and has even made it a big part of her personal brand, with her YouTube series “The Business Bar”. You’re going to get a ton of value from this episode as she shares her expertise with us! “When you really step in that genius zone, people will notice and your authenticity shines.” Check out the show notes.

What do you do when you’re searching for content that represents you but you find none? You make it yourself! In this episode, beauty YouTuber, Michaela Davert, stops by to share her story and her experience growing her channel and getting huge press and her top tips on how you can stand out with your uniqueness! “I never came across a young woman with a disability and I thought why don’t I try to be that new face and change that?” Michaela started on YouTube in 2014. She stumbled onto makeup videos and instantly fell in love with the industry. She was inspired by other Beauty YouTubers, but she soon realized that no one was making that content for people with disabilities. So she stepped up and decided to do it herself! She started spreading her positive energy and her message that having a disability is not a negative thing. As she says, “We all go through life with challenges and we should be grateful for what we have.”  From there, her channel started growing like it was on steroids. Now, she has over 38k subscribers and a combined total of over 1.4 million views! “I have a story and a message that I want to share while doing what I love.” Michaela is 19, lives with her family, including her twin brother, and she’s a junior in college pursuing a focus on digital marketing. She has Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type III, also known as brittle bone disease, a rare disease that affects 1 in 250k people but that does not dampen her bubbling and positive personality and her goal for being one of the next Covergirls. Her core audience is made up of teens and young adults who are looking to learn about another person’s perspective. “I’m not a person that really cares what other people think. Those comments about you are really about themselves.” Check out the show notes.

YouTube Burnout: The Struggle is Real with Sari Reanna

Are you stuck in YouTube burnout hell or want to know the best ways to avoid it? In this episode, Beauty YouTuber Sari Reanna joins us and shares the details of her YouTube career and how she navigated burnout and came out on top! “If you love what you’re doing, everything else is going to follow, everything else will fall into place.” Sari is a 23-year-old full-time YouTuber who created a name for herself on YouTube by sharing her struggles with severe acne. She lives in Edmonton, Canada with her family and she’s grown her channel to over 125k subscribers and 15.2 million total video views! She was bored working at a makeup counter and not being able to share her passion for makeup with her co-workers, so she decided to start a channel. From there, she fell in love with the beauty community. That was in 2014. “I am honestly living proof that anyone can start editing and start making YouTube videos.” It wasn't until January 2015 that she really got serious and her posting frequency went way up. The video that put her on the map was a rant she did about her time working at Sephora towards the end of 2015. That video alone, over the next few weeks, skyrocketed her channel by almost a million views and tens of thousands of subscribers! “People will come for your content, but ultimately, they’re gonna end up staying for you.” After consistently posting 3 videos a week since January 2015, she noticed a disturbance in her energy. She was no longer making videos for the right reasons. Instead of the joy of sharing her experience and helping others, she was chasing numbers and statistics. So she took 5 weeks off YouTube to reconnect with herself. In this episode, Sari shares what led up to that and how else she handled her burnout to come back stronger. “I needed to take a step back and remember why I love making videos and refuel my passion for it.” Check out the show notes.

How to Brand Your YouTube Channel with Influencer Branding Specialist Megan Acuna

Never be left in the dark about branding your YouTube ever again! Influencer Branding Specialist Megan Acuna is here to take care of you, sharing everything you need to know to make yourself into a top-notch brand! She is also a bootcamper and in this episode, she answers a ton of audience-submitted questions as well. “Functional and readable is always better than pretty.” Before diving into YouTube, Megan’s first job out of college was as a Social Media Manager. Working at the company, she saw them spending tons of money and getting very poor designs in return. She stepped up and volunteered to handle their designs and get some experience at the same time. Her work was so amazing that other companies came knocking, asking her to freelance with them. “I think every single item that you show in your videos should be purposeful.” After she started her YouTube channel about living beautifully and ethically on a budget, she began to notice that there wasn’t a graphic designer for YouTubers who understood and catered to influencers needs. She stepped up again and began working with a few influencers. Now she’s working with more high profile influencers and she’s doing it full-time from home. As you’ll hear in this episode, she has a passion for design and she shares a lot of the knowledge you’ll need to level up your brand. “Do what you would click on if you were trying to find the information you were giving to your audience.” Check out the show notes.
