Episode Highlights


Im not focused on monetizing or being a YouTuber If it happens it happens Im more focused on providing valuable content for my clients because I get so many questions like How do I clear my cache on Google Chrome I get so many of these questions I need to record this

So another thing on why I did YouTube is that I do a lot of how-to videos A lot of them are simple how-to steps whether with WordPress Google Chrome or anything that we get frequently asked about It can even be marketing and SEO strategies So for me it was creating those playlists to help other marketers


I have many guests that will share their screen and do a how-to or share tips about branding or something and what they do in their process for branding And I cant do that with audio

Id rather watch the YouTube video because I feel like I need to watch what this dude is doing And you miss out on so many quirky things and things that youre not seeing Like what do they have in the studio What are they doing What are they wearing But Im going to give my audience a choice Im going to let them choose whatever they want So I said Heres for the audio experience and heres for the video experience


I dont focus on downloads I dont focus on subscribers just the content I dont focus on anything Im not focused on views even with my YouTube channel I know its a brand new strategy Its a top-of-mind strategy and its worked for our business tremendously

I think its more about seeing the value in the process and branding this way And I think you cant rely on just podcasting to be your lead generator


I am staying in my lane and talking about marketing and websites Its so easy to talk about other things like Lets talk about sales But lets focus on marketing and WordPress websites For me its about staying in my lane just giving without expecting anything in return

I provide a lot of insightful and practical content for marketers But even entrepreneurs reach out to me and say Hey I know youre focused with B2B marketers but this has been awesome If people need it theyll reach out to you


What I see a lot is that a lot of people have selfish motives Theyre like Whats the ROI Did you close that guest Did you do this Did you do that Subscribers downloads all these things And then they quit And thats the thing that I see a lot happening even after this whole pandemic But thats their thing They keep changing and they need to be patient to see anything You got to build momentum If youre focused on ROI youre going to be impatient and youre going to quit
