Behind The Scenes of a Small & Profitable Youtube Business

YouTube can be insanely useful for small businesses today. But most of us think the wrong way about how to use it.

Do you want to start a Youtube channel? Do you want to grow your revenue and audience using the audience tools YouTube offers?

In this episode we answer these and many more questions. We take the example of Chase Reeves’ YouTube channel and dissect how a personal passion for bags led him to building a profitable and valuable series of videos.

Today on the show the team help you think about how you can turn your interests and abilities into capital and opportunity on Youtube.

We also talk about calls to action, passive income, defining your audience and understanding the true purpose of hosting a video channel similar to Chase’s.

So if you are interested in exploring a new avenue of revenue, would like to improve an already existing channel or are open to us convincing us of something you thought you would never do tune in! We got you!
