YouTube was how I made my first commissions in OLSP, in this video I run through some simple tips that you can implement, if you are going to use YouTube.
Here are some of the resources mentioned in the video :-
Canva is a great site for creating all your images including thumbnails and YT channel headers
Vid IQ is what I use to research keywords and make tweaks and adjustments on my channel
Vidnami is a video creation tool like no other, it is by far and a way the simplest and fastest way to create videos. They do a 14 day free trial so you can explore at your leisure and I have managed to sort a discount here. UPDATE 2021 Vidnami has been sold to GoDaddy and currently not available but another great tool I use to record my laptop screen is OBSStudio and its free.
UPDATE :- You can now use Tube comment pro in OLSP to get engagement on your videos giving them a boost up the Youtube rankings.
Tube Domination is a great course for beginners and intermediates who want to use the power of YouTube well worth the $12.
You Tube Mastery is a free webinar by my friend Matt Par, all about making money with YouTube and not showing your face on camera. I even recently bought Matt's course and below is an review video of the course in detail.
