YouTube 101: Keys to a Successful Channel
So, chances are, if you’ve never thought about creating a blog, you won’t have even considered starting a YouTube channel, or, if you have, you’ve dismissed the idea quickly. We don’t blame you! Getting in front of a camera is daunting and it can be time-consuming. But creating online videos for potential customers is a great way to introduce yourself personally, creating a connection between yourself and the viewer which can’t be replicated with blogs. Using a YouTube channel to complement your online course doesn’t have to be as time-consuming as you may think. Once a video is created, it can be used in both your online course and on your YouTube channel, a double win! But how do you build the confidence to get in front of a camera? And how do you direct any traffic to your channel in a sea of millions? You need Andy Slye
