How to start a coding YouTube channel (with tips from a bunch of successful creators!)

  • 00:00:00 hello my name is beau Carnes and I run
  • 00:00:02 the Freak Ocampa org YouTube channel
  • 00:00:05 we're currently the biggest ActiveX
  • 00:00:07 software channel on YouTube our channel
  • 00:00:10 focuses on posting long in-depth courses
  • 00:00:14 and we post these courses from a variety
  • 00:00:16 of contributors in this tutorial I'm
  • 00:00:19 gonna share insights into YouTube's
  • 00:00:21 algorithm I'll share tips for creating
  • 00:00:24 your own software YouTube channel and
  • 00:00:26 we're gonna hear advice from a variety
  • 00:00:28 of successful YouTube creators even if
  • 00:00:31 you're new to software you can benefit a
  • 00:00:33 lot from starting a YouTube channel in
  • 00:00:35 fact most of the tips and advice I share
  • 00:00:38 in this video will be applicable to any
  • 00:00:40 type of YouTube channel not just
  • 00:00:42 software channels I think starting a
  • 00:00:45 YouTube channel can benefit developers
  • 00:00:47 at any stage of their career you don't
  • 00:00:49 have to be an expert you don't even have
  • 00:00:51 to know anything about a topic to teach
  • 00:00:54 someone about the topic all you have to
  • 00:00:56 have is an interest and a desire to
  • 00:00:58 learn actually that's just what I did
  • 00:01:00 when I started my first JavaScript
  • 00:01:02 training channel so I created my own
  • 00:01:05 YouTube channel this is before free code
  • 00:01:07 camp and I had JavaScript tutorials I
  • 00:01:10 didn't really even know that much about
  • 00:01:12 JavaScript before I started the channel
  • 00:01:14 I would learn about the topic so he
  • 00:01:17 could make a video about the topic and
  • 00:01:19 the process of making the videos turned
  • 00:01:23 me into an expert and then when I went
  • 00:01:25 to get a job I was able to point to my
  • 00:01:27 videos to show that I knew what I was
  • 00:01:29 doing and it helped me get a job before
  • 00:01:33 you start a channel you need to decide
  • 00:01:35 the goal of your channel your goal can
  • 00:01:38 have an impact on a lot of things about
  • 00:01:39 your channel so here are some common
  • 00:01:42 goals which are not mutually exclusive
  • 00:01:44 some people want to help others learn
  • 00:01:46 you may want to build a body of work
  • 00:01:49 that will lead to other career
  • 00:01:50 opportunities you may want to give
  • 00:01:53 yourself a reason to learn or maybe
  • 00:01:55 promote a paid resource maybe you just
  • 00:01:59 want to make money through YouTube ad
  • 00:02:00 revenue sponsorships and affiliate links
  • 00:02:03 also you may want to promote your brand
  • 00:02:05 or company when thinking about the
  • 00:02:08 videos you want to make on your channel
  • 00:02:09 and you may think about how there's
  • 00:02:11 already a lot of videos on that
  • 00:02:13 same topic but don't worry about that
  • 00:02:15 because there are tons of different
  • 00:02:16 learners in the world so there's got to
  • 00:02:18 be a learner out there that can learn
  • 00:02:20 best from your teaching style also I
  • 00:02:22 can't stress this enough you don't have
  • 00:02:25 to already know about a topic to create
  • 00:02:27 a video about a topic Krang a video is a
  • 00:02:30 great opportunity to learn
  • 00:02:32 you're gonna want to try to figure out
  • 00:02:34 what type of software channel you want
  • 00:02:36 to start I category software YouTube
  • 00:02:38 channels into four types we have
  • 00:02:41 tutorial informational live coding and
  • 00:02:46 software entertainment I'm going to give
  • 00:02:49 some examples of all of these
  • 00:02:51 interspersed with tips from some of the
  • 00:02:54 creators different types of channels
  • 00:02:56 different types of videos appeal to
  • 00:02:58 different demographics for instance a
  • 00:03:00 software attainment channel is going to
  • 00:03:02 appeal to a wider demographic than a
  • 00:03:04 software tutorial channel so you need to
  • 00:03:07 keep your goals in mind so you don't get
  • 00:03:09 discouraged if you see other videos
  • 00:03:11 getting way more views in your videos
  • 00:03:13 just depending on what you're trying to
  • 00:03:15 accomplish for your channel so a
  • 00:03:18 tutorial channel primarily features
  • 00:03:20 software tutorials this is the best type
  • 00:03:23 of channel if you want your channel to
  • 00:03:25 help you get a job or if you want to
  • 00:03:27 sell Pig courses this style sometimes
  • 00:03:30 less focus on your personality than
  • 00:03:32 other channels so you can see here are
  • 00:03:34 some top tutorial channels and some good
  • 00:03:37 examples of what tutorial channels are
  • 00:03:39 like so as far as tips I people ask me
  • 00:03:44 this all the time and I really I don't
  • 00:03:46 want to say I don't like the question
  • 00:03:47 but I don't feel like I have a great
  • 00:03:49 answer because there's no special
  • 00:03:52 formula I didn't do promotion so I don't
  • 00:03:55 I don't have much advice on promotion
  • 00:03:58 what I did was just make videos I just
  • 00:04:01 was I was consistent I think that's the
  • 00:04:04 best advice I can give is to be
  • 00:04:05 consistent and it's gonna be
  • 00:04:08 discouraging at first you're gonna get
  • 00:04:10 no views you know and you're gonna make
  • 00:04:12 no money and you're spending your time
  • 00:04:14 but the more consistent you are if you
  • 00:04:18 if you're making good content and you're
  • 00:04:19 uploading you know every week people are
  • 00:04:22 gonna start to come so that's that's the
  • 00:04:25 the best advice I can give and don't
  • 00:04:28 stop because if you stop making content
  • 00:04:31 your channel is just gonna go to
  • 00:04:33 and even at my level at whatever 800,000
  • 00:04:36 subscribers if I just if I don't make a
  • 00:04:37 video for a month or two months my
  • 00:04:40 analytics are just gonna it's just going
  • 00:04:42 to be a straight down slope
  • 00:04:44 and it's it's very stressful you know
  • 00:04:46 doing YouTube especially full-time is
  • 00:04:49 very stressful because if you if you
  • 00:04:52 don't have any ideas that week you know
  • 00:04:54 and you can't make a video your your
  • 00:04:56 analytics go down and that's your
  • 00:04:58 livelihood you know so it can be
  • 00:05:00 stressful but you do you know you want
  • 00:05:03 to be consistent
  • 00:05:04 another thing is be yourself don't don't
  • 00:05:07 try to copy people it's it's okay to
  • 00:05:09 watch other people and get ideas from
  • 00:05:11 them but don't like straight up copy
  • 00:05:13 someone because it's already out there
  • 00:05:15 you want to be unique you also don't
  • 00:05:17 want to be fake I know that there are a
  • 00:05:19 lot of fake people on YouTube and a lot
  • 00:05:21 of them are successful like the family
  • 00:05:23 vloggers and stuff that are all giddy
  • 00:05:24 and happy and stuff and then they're
  • 00:05:26 miserable off-camera you want to be
  • 00:05:29 yourself you know for me I I like to
  • 00:05:33 talk to you guys like I talk to my
  • 00:05:35 friends you know I don't jump on camera
  • 00:05:37 like hey guys we're gonna we're gonna
  • 00:05:39 build an application today and and
  • 00:05:41 Lottie died and that's just not my
  • 00:05:43 personality you guys would think I was
  • 00:05:45 friggin high or something you know is he
  • 00:05:47 getting back on drugs if I if I acted
  • 00:05:50 like that so I just think that being
  • 00:05:52 yourself is is genuine and people pick
  • 00:05:56 up on that and I think that ultimately
  • 00:05:58 that's one of the things that that's
  • 00:06:00 helped me out the most and then the last
  • 00:06:02 one I have is to find your niche and
  • 00:06:04 basically what I mean is keep your
  • 00:06:07 content you know all in the same area
  • 00:06:10 don't do a development video or a
  • 00:06:13 tutorial one day and then the next day
  • 00:06:15 do your favorite movies and then the
  • 00:06:17 next day do a family vlog because people
  • 00:06:21 tend to subscribe the channels for a
  • 00:06:23 specific thing for me it's usually
  • 00:06:25 tutorials I also do videos on you know
  • 00:06:29 like videos like this self-help to help
  • 00:06:31 you in your professional life help you
  • 00:06:34 be more successful come up with ideas
  • 00:06:37 stuff like that you know so you want to
  • 00:06:41 just kind of stick to to a certain realm
  • 00:06:43 don't go all over the place because
  • 00:06:45 people won't know what to think of you
  • 00:06:46 or why they're watching you unless you
  • 00:06:49 just have a fantastic personality and it
  • 00:06:51 doesn't matter what you do there are
  • 00:06:53 some channels like that but I've seen a
  • 00:06:55 lot of channels fail because they just
  • 00:06:57 just all over the place so you know you
  • 00:07:00 just want to find find what you're good
  • 00:07:01 at and stick to it
  • 00:07:03 an informational channel has
  • 00:07:06 informational videos about software
  • 00:07:08 development they usually focus on soft
  • 00:07:11 skills and other information that
  • 00:07:13 developers should know and just you know
  • 00:07:16 sometimes you see multiple styles in one
  • 00:07:18 channel you'll see tutorial videos and
  • 00:07:20 informational videos on the same Channel
  • 00:07:23 but here are some examples of some good
  • 00:07:26 informational channels to kind of give
  • 00:07:28 you an idea of what type of videos
  • 00:07:29 you'll see on those channels
  • 00:07:31 hey guys is your boy Joe back at it
  • 00:07:33 again coding face.com your boys back and
  • 00:07:35 I don't did it again one more time

  • 00:08:07 others about it so like that they can be
  • 00:08:09 more prepared for job interviews you

  • 00:09:34 don't take things too serious sometimes
  • 00:09:36 we overthink things
  • 00:09:37 you know when I first got into YouTube
  • 00:09:39 I've been doing this for like four years
  • 00:09:42 before I was even starting to get into
  • 00:09:45 YouTube bang but because I was so
  • 00:09:47 worried about what are the people gonna

  • 00:10:59 camp and love you guys man stay tuned if
  • 00:11:02 you want to check out my channel check
  • 00:11:03 it out coding face another type is live
  • 00:11:06 coding this type of channel mainly
  • 00:11:08 focuses on people live coding viewers
  • 00:11:12 can see the actual thought process that
  • 00:11:14 goes into creating a program it can also
  • 00:11:16 be helpful to see how LiveCode errs
  • 00:11:18 solve problems in real time although
  • 00:11:20 some people are so good at it it can
  • 00:11:23 almost seemed as polished as a tutorial
  • 00:11:25 channel like for instance the coding
  • 00:11:27 train live coding is great for building
  • 00:11:30 a community because you often get to
  • 00:11:33 communicate with viewers directly during
  • 00:11:35 a stream and this is also a style that
  • 00:11:38 you commonly see live coding with other
  • 00:11:41 types of styles on the same Channel
  • 00:11:43 if you're interested in live coding I've
  • 00:11:46 learned a few things than live coding
  • 00:11:49 for a few years and here's some of the
  • 00:11:52 advice that I think it'd be most helpful
  • 00:11:56 on the technical side don't worry about
  • 00:11:58 getting a fancy microphone or webcam you
  • 00:12:02 can use the built-in webcam to get
  • 00:12:04 started and the built-in mic that's how
  • 00:12:06 I got started and I stuck with that for
  • 00:12:08 a long time before I got anything else
  • 00:12:10 and no one ever complained about the
  • 00:12:12 audio or video quality when you actually
  • 00:12:16 do start start live coding I recommend
  • 00:12:21 just live coding whatever you're you're
  • 00:12:23 normally doing whatever you're
  • 00:12:25 comfortable with if you're doing a
  • 00:12:26 tutorial you can live code that if if
  • 00:12:29 you're working on open source projects
  • 00:12:31 live code that it doesn't have to and it
  • 00:12:35 doesn't have to be something you're
  • 00:12:35 really good at they say if you just want
  • 00:12:39 to do a side project with some new
  • 00:12:40 technology you can you can do that when
  • 00:12:44 you are actually doing the live coding
  • 00:12:48 do your best to explain what you're
  • 00:12:49 doing I recommend setting aside a
  • 00:12:53 specific time for questions for checking
  • 00:12:56 out the live chat and a time for coding
  • 00:12:59 I split it up with a Pomodoro session so
  • 00:13:02 25 minutes of coding and then five
  • 00:13:05 minutes of of chat if you try to look at
  • 00:13:08 the chat while you're coding you end up
  • 00:13:10 not knowing either one very well and
  • 00:13:13 there's just too many interruptions and
  • 00:13:15 you can't you can't code very well like
  • 00:13:17 that I recommend if you can try to show
  • 00:13:24 your face because your facial
  • 00:13:26 expressions will convey a lot of your
  • 00:13:28 meaning especially for your viewers who
  • 00:13:31 aren't native speakers to whatever
  • 00:13:34 language your live coding and
  • 00:13:36 I do recommend though that that's not an
  • 00:13:38 option for most people so you know
  • 00:13:42 that's I live coded for a long time
  • 00:13:44 without showing my face and I was
  • 00:13:46 totally fine and nobody said I want to
  • 00:13:48 see you okay I just decided to do it
  • 00:13:50 because of your being able to convey my
  • 00:13:53 meaning more try to keep in mind that
  • 00:13:55 people watching might be completely new
  • 00:13:58 and have no clue what's going on so if
  • 00:13:59 they ask a question that might seem like
  • 00:14:07 maybe like almost like a joke that it's
  • 00:14:10 so basic try it you know don't laugh at
  • 00:14:12 it they might be new it might be a
  • 00:14:13 legitimate question and if you laugh and
  • 00:14:17 you're gonna just ruin that person's
  • 00:14:19 experience of coding for that day and
  • 00:14:26 you set the tone for your stream so if
  • 00:14:29 you stay positive then the stream will
  • 00:14:33 be generally positive if somebody goes
  • 00:14:36 negative in the chat you don't even have
  • 00:14:39 to address it you can just block them or
  • 00:14:41 you could address it in a way that
  • 00:14:43 doesn't escalate the situation if you
  • 00:14:45 respond with negativity it'll cause more
  • 00:14:48 negativity if you respond to a criticism
  • 00:14:52 that's pretty harsh with you no thank
  • 00:14:55 you
  • 00:14:55 and try to figure out what the would you
  • 00:14:59 can gain from that then that's much more
  • 00:15:02 beneficial than you know responding with
  • 00:15:04 something like defensive right so
  • 00:15:10 hopefully you do some live streaming and
  • 00:15:14 good luck the final type is software
  • 00:15:17 entertainment this type of channel has
  • 00:15:20 the potential for the most views
  • 00:15:23 creators use programming to create
  • 00:15:25 projects that are interesting to a very
  • 00:15:27 wide demographic the videos focus more
  • 00:15:30 on the outcome of the program and not on
  • 00:15:33 the actual code used so this type of
  • 00:15:36 channel like I said there's a it reaches
  • 00:15:38 a very wide demographic you don't
  • 00:15:40 actually have to be interested in coding
  • 00:15:41 to really enjoy watching the videos on
  • 00:15:44 these channels so once you design your
  • 00:15:47 goals and the type of videos you want to
  • 00:15:49 create
  • 00:15:49 you're gonna have to do some setup and
  • 00:15:51 planning here's some things you're going
  • 00:15:53 to have to do so this is a screenshot
  • 00:15:56 from my personal robot family youtube
  • 00:16:00 channel first of all I want to point off
  • 00:16:02 to the side there's a bunch of accounts
  • 00:16:04 under one username one in my email
  • 00:16:07 address bocardo gmail.com and we have a
  • 00:16:09 bunch of different accounts these are
  • 00:16:11 brand accounts so when you create your
  • 00:16:13 YouTube channel it's good to create it
  • 00:16:16 as a brand account this allows you to
  • 00:16:18 keep some separation between your
  • 00:16:20 personal Google account and your
  • 00:16:22 software YouTube channel it's going to
  • 00:16:25 still use the same login as your Google
  • 00:16:27 account so you don't have to keep track
  • 00:16:29 of another username and password and
  • 00:16:30 then you can also add additional people
  • 00:16:33 as managers of the account you're also
  • 00:16:36 going to have to determine your channel
  • 00:16:38 name so in this case it's robot family I
  • 00:16:41 personally recommend using your name as
  • 00:16:44 your channel name so like I would use
  • 00:16:46 the name BOE Karns although you will see
  • 00:16:49 you'll see an example already showed you
  • 00:16:51 that a lot of people have had success
  • 00:16:54 using other names but if you use your
  • 00:16:56 name as a channel name it can help
  • 00:16:58 better associate you with your content
  • 00:17:01 so you're also going to have to develop
  • 00:17:03 some things like your channel icon and
  • 00:17:06 your channel art and then maybe a video
  • 00:17:09 watermark to appear at the bottom of
  • 00:17:11 each video that you're playing so those
  • 00:17:15 things you can either design them
  • 00:17:16 yourself or you could consider maybe
  • 00:17:18 hiring someone off fiverr.com or
  • 00:17:21 something like that but you're just
  • 00:17:23 going to have to make sure you have all
  • 00:17:24 those things you should also determine
  • 00:17:26 what kind of intro you want not everyone
  • 00:17:29 is going to have an intro but you may
  • 00:17:31 want to intro that you have on all of
  • 00:17:32 your videos I wanted a piece of advice
  • 00:17:35 keep it under five seconds this should
  • 00:17:38 be really short because if you if your
  • 00:17:41 intro is too long people just get bored
  • 00:17:43 and just kind of click off your video
  • 00:17:44 before they even get into your video you
  • 00:17:47 also may want to consider other
  • 00:17:49 consistent things you want to add your
  • 00:17:50 videos to set them apart like you may
  • 00:17:53 have a sign-off line or a prop or maybe
  • 00:17:57 you wrap in all of your videos something
  • 00:17:59 like that to make your videos stand
  • 00:18:01 apart
  • 00:18:05 so once you've done the high-level
  • 00:18:07 planning for your channel it's time to
  • 00:18:09 start thinking about the specific videos
  • 00:18:11 you want to make the first step is
  • 00:18:14 brainstorming so just write down every
  • 00:18:17 idea you can possibly think of after
  • 00:18:20 that you just have to start narrowing
  • 00:18:22 down that I'd those ideas to the best
  • 00:18:24 ideas and eventually you'll come up with
  • 00:18:27 a good list of videos that would be good
  • 00:18:29 to create so once you figured out what
  • 00:18:31 specific video you want to create you're
  • 00:18:33 gonna have to do some researching
  • 00:18:34 because remember you don't already have
  • 00:18:36 to know about the topic beforehand but
  • 00:18:38 if sometimes it can be good if you
  • 00:18:40 already know about the topic beforehand
  • 00:18:41 you won't have to do as much researching
  • 00:18:43 but if you don't know about the topic
  • 00:18:44 beforehand you're gonna have to do quite
  • 00:18:46 a bit of researching so you can make the
  • 00:18:48 video as good as possible for the
  • 00:18:51 audience and you're most likely gonna
  • 00:18:54 have to write a script for the video and
  • 00:18:56 if you're making a coding tutorial
  • 00:18:59 you're gonna have to write the code for
  • 00:19:01 the video beforehand
  • 00:19:04 recording and editing here are two of
  • 00:19:08 the most important things when it comes
  • 00:19:10 to recording first of all use a good
  • 00:19:14 microphone and second of all if you're
  • 00:19:18 gonna show code on screen make it as
  • 00:19:20 large as possible if you have bad audio
  • 00:19:24 or tiny code it's gonna cause people to
  • 00:19:28 stop watching immediately before they
  • 00:19:30 even see the real content of your video
  • 00:19:33 it may be hard to believe but almost one
  • 00:19:36 third of people watching coding
  • 00:19:38 tutorials on the free code camp Channel
  • 00:19:40 watch on a mobile phone you know people
  • 00:19:43 are watching from all over the world and
  • 00:19:45 so you want to make sure your content is
  • 00:19:48 accessible as possible and so make sure
  • 00:19:51 the code is as large as possible so for
  • 00:19:55 audio almost any USB microphone will be
  • 00:19:58 better than the built-in mic on your
  • 00:20:00 computer if you can afford it consider
  • 00:20:02 one of these microphones we have the
  • 00:20:04 blue snowball the audio technica at2020
  • 00:20:19 Ford a mic do some tests with recording
  • 00:20:22 audio on a cell phone so depending on
  • 00:20:24 what phone you have and what computer
  • 00:20:26 you have there's a chance that audio
  • 00:20:28 recorded on your cell phone could be
  • 00:20:31 better than audio on your computer so
  • 00:20:33 you'd have to record the audio
  • 00:20:34 separately and then just add it in and
  • 00:20:38 editing later if you're going to show
  • 00:20:40 yourself on video like I'm doing now the
  • 00:20:42 cheapest way is just to use a webcam or
  • 00:20:45 your your cell phone's camera a lot of
  • 00:20:48 cell phones actually have pretty good
  • 00:20:50 cameras but if you want to take things
  • 00:20:51 to the next level
  • 00:20:53 consider one of these cameras but no
  • 00:20:55 these cameras are probably not necessary
  • 00:20:57 if your channel mainly consists of
  • 00:20:59 coding tutorials but we have a few
  • 00:21:02 canons this Panasonic and these are all
  • 00:21:05 good options a good camera is especially
  • 00:21:08 important if you are creating
  • 00:21:10 informational or software entertainment
  • 00:21:13 videos you also may want to include
  • 00:21:15 screen recording in your video if
  • 00:21:18 using a Mac I recommend using quick time
  • 00:21:20 for both screen recording and video
  • 00:21:23 recording and it should be pre-installed
  • 00:21:25 on your computer already if you're using
  • 00:21:27 windows there's a shortcut key to begin
  • 00:21:30 recording your screen just any time you
  • 00:21:32 you just press Windows key alt R if you
  • 00:21:36 want to show video of your screen at the
  • 00:21:38 same time as video of you talking you
  • 00:21:40 can use OBS software OBS is a great open
  • 00:21:44 source software that a lot of live
  • 00:21:46 streamers use although I actually use
  • 00:21:49 Final Cut Pro to make my face here
  • 00:21:52 appear on top of this video when you're
  • 00:21:54 recording your screen always make sure
  • 00:21:56 the main content takes up as much room
  • 00:21:59 on the screen as possible remember a lot
  • 00:22:02 of people are actually watching coding
  • 00:22:03 tutorials on mobile phones so all text
  • 00:22:06 should be as big as possible you need a
  • 00:22:09 very good reason to show a window that
  • 00:22:11 is not full screen when recording a
  • 00:22:14 tutorial it can be helpful to use two
  • 00:22:16 screens you can record one of the
  • 00:22:19 screens for the video and use the other
  • 00:22:21 screen for your script and completed
  • 00:22:23 code so here's something that some
  • 00:22:25 people do to make their coding tutorials
  • 00:22:27 even more polished first record the
  • 00:22:30 whole tutorial with the screen capture
  • 00:22:32 where you're talking over the screen
  • 00:22:34 capture and then transcribe the audio
  • 00:22:37 then go in and make some edits like
  • 00:22:39 maybe make some things more clear add
  • 00:22:42 some jokes or something and then
  • 00:22:44 rerecord the audio and then put that
  • 00:22:46 audio the rerecord audio over the
  • 00:22:49 initial video and then it's gonna look a
  • 00:22:52 lot more positive before you should
  • 00:22:55 probably be editing your videos to make
  • 00:22:57 them flow smoother and to edit out any
  • 00:23:00 mistakes you can use editing to edit out
  • 00:23:02 any arms or pauses or loud noises and it
  • 00:23:06 could just make things seem just a lot
  • 00:23:08 more professional this is especially
  • 00:23:10 important if you're creating is some
  • 00:23:12 software entertainment videos or even
  • 00:23:15 informational videos but pretty much
  • 00:23:18 everyone should be doing some editing
  • 00:23:19 for very simple editing you can use
  • 00:23:22 iMovie on Mac or moviemaker
  • 00:23:25 on Windows but these programs are very
  • 00:23:28 limited I personally use Final Cut Pro
  • 00:23:30 but that is a little
  • 00:23:32 pricy here's a few other free video
  • 00:23:35 editors that offer more features than
  • 00:23:37 iMovie or moviemaker
  • 00:23:38 we have open shot video pad and
  • 00:23:41 Lightworks after you decide what
  • 00:23:44 software to use for editing watch a few
  • 00:23:46 tutorials to learn about the basic
  • 00:23:48 functionality of the software another
  • 00:23:51 option is to hire someone to edit your
  • 00:23:53 videos even if you already know how to
  • 00:23:55 edit videos hiring an editor can save
  • 00:23:57 you a lot of time if you can afford it
  • 00:23:59 so you don't have to create thumbnails
  • 00:24:01 and titles you can have the world's best
  • 00:24:04 video but nobody will find out about it
  • 00:24:06 if they don't click on the thumbnail to
  • 00:24:08 grow your channel it is important to
  • 00:24:10 create quality content but it's almost
  • 00:24:12 equally important to use thumbnails and
  • 00:24:15 titles that will cause people to click
  • 00:24:17 on your video thumbnails are important
  • 00:24:19 for all videos but in my experience
  • 00:24:21 thumbnails are more important for
  • 00:24:22 software entertainment channels and the
  • 00:24:25 titles are actually more important for
  • 00:24:27 software tutorial channels so here's
  • 00:24:30 some tips for designing thumbnails some
  • 00:24:33 of these come from the YouTube creator
  • 00:24:34 Academy which has some pretty good tips
  • 00:24:37 so first you should brand your
  • 00:24:40 thumbnails by using consistent colors
  • 00:24:42 fonts and graphics and stuff like that
  • 00:24:44 also you should use the rule of thirds
  • 00:24:47 this will help you compose interesting
  • 00:24:50 and dynamic images so the rule of thirds
  • 00:24:53 is where you've divided the image up
  • 00:24:55 into thirds and you put all the key
  • 00:24:58 things in the image on the line that
  • 00:25:00 would be a third the way into the image
  • 00:25:02 the next thing is to design for mobile
  • 00:25:06 and desktop thumbnails are gonna show up
  • 00:25:08 in different sizes across YouTube and
  • 00:25:10 sometimes people embed your video so
  • 00:25:14 check to make sure your thumbnail looks
  • 00:25:16 good in multiple sizes that it could
  • 00:25:18 show up on and then finally get ideas
  • 00:25:21 from similar channels you can look for
  • 00:25:24 channels that are similar to what you're
  • 00:25:25 trying to do and see kind of what the
  • 00:25:27 general idea and styles that they use
  • 00:25:30 and that could give you some ideas
  • 00:25:32 although you do want to make sure that
  • 00:25:34 your thumbnails are distinct to your
  • 00:25:36 channel so next image editing software
  • 00:25:40 you need you're going to need software
  • 00:25:43 to create your thumbnail so the top
  • 00:25:45 image
  • 00:25:46 software is Photoshop to use it you must
  • 00:25:49 sign up for a monthly subscription
  • 00:25:50 service and so there are some cheaper
  • 00:25:53 alternatives so the most popular free
  • 00:25:56 image editing software is GIMP I did use
  • 00:25:59 GIMP for years and eventually I decided
  • 00:26:02 I needed something more user-friendly so
  • 00:26:05 I purchased affinity photo that's this
  • 00:26:08 third icon here the features and the
  • 00:26:11 user experience were much better than
  • 00:26:13 GIMP so I was pretty happy to be able to
  • 00:26:15 do that it also has a one-time cost
  • 00:26:18 unlike Photoshop that has the
  • 00:26:20 subscription model another good option
  • 00:26:22 is its pixel meter which is kind of
  • 00:26:24 similar to affinity photo
  • 00:26:25 they're both one-time costs that give
  • 00:26:28 you quite a bit of features choosing a
  • 00:26:32 title it's best to pick a title that
  • 00:26:35 people are searching for there are two
  • 00:26:38 main ways to find out what people are
  • 00:26:40 searching for we have YouTube search
  • 00:26:42 autocomplete and Google Trends so let me
  • 00:26:47 show you how to use Google search
  • 00:26:49 autocomplete to figure out what you
  • 00:26:52 should title your video let's say you're
  • 00:26:54 creating a video about JavaScript
  • 00:26:57 frameworks just go over to YouTube I
  • 00:27:00 have the dark mode on so and go to the
  • 00:27:03 search box and I'm just gonna type in
  • 00:27:05 JavaScript frameworks now what you can
  • 00:27:10 do is see what things are being
  • 00:27:13 suggested so right after JavaScript
  • 00:27:16 frameworks it says JavaScript frameworks
  • 00:27:18 2019 JavaScript frameworks explained
  • 00:27:21 JavaScript frameworks tutorial now these
  • 00:27:25 are all words that people are commonly
  • 00:27:27 searching for so now because of this
  • 00:27:31 autocomplete we know what people are
  • 00:27:33 searching for what words people are
  • 00:27:35 adding with JavaScript frameworks when
  • 00:27:37 they search for JavaScript frameworks so
  • 00:27:40 in this case maybe I'll call my video
  • 00:27:43 JavaScript frameworks explained
  • 00:27:45 – 2019 okay one other tip I am signed in
  • 00:27:50 right now but generally you want to do
  • 00:27:52 this on incognito mode if you do it in
  • 00:27:55 incognito mode then the search
  • 00:27:57 recommendations won't
  • 00:27:59 based on your search history at all
  • 00:28:02 another way to figure out what people
  • 00:28:04 are searching for is on Google Trends
  • 00:28:07 let me show you how you would use this
  • 00:28:09 say you make this for our Python course
  • 00:28:13 and you're thinking about what what
  • 00:28:16 should you title this should you title
  • 00:28:17 it Python course is that what people are
  • 00:28:20 searching for well let's find out so I'm
  • 00:28:23 going to go to trends google.com that's
  • 00:28:26 what I'm on now and I'm going to search
  • 00:28:27 for Python course and now I can add
  • 00:28:32 another search term I can compare to
  • 00:28:34 other search terms so I'm going to
  • 00:28:37 compare Python course to Python tutorial
  • 00:28:41 and then where it says web search here
  • 00:28:45 I'm going to switch it to youtube search
  • 00:28:48 so now I'm seeing the relative
  • 00:28:51 popularity of different search terms on
  • 00:28:54 YouTube so we can see here that python
  • 00:28:59 tutorial is way more popular than python
  • 00:29:02 course so maybe I was thinking about
  • 00:29:05 calling my video Python course but now
  • 00:29:08 after I see this Google Trends I'm going
  • 00:29:11 to use the word tutorial instead of
  • 00:29:13 course because obviously the word
  • 00:29:15 tutorial is way more popular than course
  • 00:29:18 when people are searching and I can add
  • 00:29:21 as many comparisons as possible maybe
  • 00:29:24 I'm going to type in learn Python are
  • 00:29:27 people searching for the word learn
  • 00:29:29 Python well not really because python
  • 00:29:31 tutorial is still way more popular so
  • 00:29:33 this is a great way to figure out what
  • 00:29:35 people are searching for so you can
  • 00:29:37 title your videos appropriately
  • 00:29:42 so I want to briefly talk about traffic
  • 00:29:45 sources or where views come from a
  • 00:29:47 traffic source is how a viewer found
  • 00:29:50 your video to watch the traffic source
  • 00:29:52 breakdown for most channels on YouTube
  • 00:29:54 looks more similar to this this is my
  • 00:29:56 robot family Channel and this is the
  • 00:29:59 free coke amp Torah Channel you can see
  • 00:30:01 most of the views on the robot family
  • 00:30:03 channel are coming from suggested videos
  • 00:30:05 and that's where when people so when
  • 00:30:08 someone's watching a video and on the
  • 00:30:10 side there'll be recommended videos on
  • 00:30:12 the side and then when people click
  • 00:30:14 those videos that are recommended on the
  • 00:30:16 side that's a suggested video now you
  • 00:30:19 can see the number two spot is browse
  • 00:30:21 features this includes many things but
  • 00:30:24 the main thing browse features includes
  • 00:30:26 is the home screen so when someone goes
  • 00:30:28 to youtube.com and they're signed into
  • 00:30:31 their account YouTube will recommend
  • 00:30:33 specific things right on the home page
  • 00:30:34 of YouTube and that's browse features so
  • 00:30:38 most channels on YouTube get most of
  • 00:30:41 their views from these things suggested
  • 00:30:44 videos and browse features however you
  • 00:30:47 can see over on the free coke amp side
  • 00:30:49 we get most of our views from YouTube
  • 00:30:52 search and I think this is pretty common
  • 00:30:55 for tutorial channels because if
  • 00:30:58 someone's gonna watch a tutorial usually
  • 00:31:00 they know they want to watch a tutorial
  • 00:31:02 like for instance if someone just
  • 00:31:04 watching like a funny cat video and then
  • 00:31:06 suddenly on the side it says watch this
  • 00:31:09 five hour javascript video people
  • 00:31:11 generally aren't going to want to go
  • 00:31:13 directly from the funny cat video to the
  • 00:31:15 500 JavaScript training video so that's
  • 00:31:18 why YouTube search is I think more
  • 00:31:21 important for 4 tutorial channels but
  • 00:31:24 for a lot of the other channels the
  • 00:31:25 suggested videos are going to be more
  • 00:31:27 important and this is also why I think
  • 00:31:30 titles are more important for tutorial
  • 00:31:34 channels because of the search and the
  • 00:31:36 thumbnails are more important for like
  • 00:31:39 software entertainment channels and
  • 00:31:41 software informational channels
  • 00:31:47 the YouTube algorithm is what decides if
  • 00:31:50 your video is going to be promoted in
  • 00:31:52 different places like if it's gonna be
  • 00:31:53 promoted on cert or if it's going to be
  • 00:31:55 recommended and the YouTube algorithm is
  • 00:31:57 a mysterious thing it's my belief that
  • 00:32:00 even YouTube engineers don't completely
  • 00:32:03 understand how it works basically it's
  • 00:32:06 all based on machine learning and
  • 00:32:08 artificial intelligence the the the
  • 00:32:10 people that program the algorithm they
  • 00:32:12 just tell if the outcomes they want and
  • 00:32:15 then that algorithm determines how to
  • 00:32:17 best achieve those outcomes so ever I'm
  • 00:32:22 about to show you I'm about to tell you
  • 00:32:24 the things I figured out about how to
  • 00:32:25 how to get your video popular but there
  • 00:32:30 could be exceptions to everything I'm
  • 00:32:31 about to tell you this is just based on
  • 00:32:33 a lot of experience and a lot of
  • 00:32:35 research and things i've heard that
  • 00:32:36 other popular youtubers have said okay
  • 00:32:39 let's start with talking about what the
  • 00:32:41 algorithm doesn't care about asterik
  • 00:32:45 that just means that all these things
  • 00:32:48 that algorithm does care about a little
  • 00:32:50 tiny bit but just not that much compared
  • 00:32:54 to what the algorithm does care about
  • 00:32:57 which i'll be talking about next so the
  • 00:33:00 first thing is upload frequency i've
  • 00:33:03 heard people say that creators must
  • 00:33:05 upload a video every few days with no
  • 00:33:07 breaks to really grow a channel this
  • 00:33:09 seems like a myth to me I've seen many
  • 00:33:12 channels with infrequent uploads that
  • 00:33:14 get a ton of views on each video and I
  • 00:33:17 believe that YouTube's algorithm does
  • 00:33:19 not care that much about upload
  • 00:33:20 frequency sometimes YouTube engineers
  • 00:33:23 will actually run studies to better
  • 00:33:25 understand how the algorithm works and
  • 00:33:27 on an official YouTube channel aimed at
  • 00:33:30 creators they discussed a study that
  • 00:33:32 showed that taking a break from creating
  • 00:33:35 videos does not impact the view count
  • 00:33:38 when a creator comes back from a break
  • 00:33:40 so while upload frequency is not always
  • 00:33:44 correlated with how many views you get
  • 00:33:46 it could impact whether a viewer will
  • 00:33:49 subscribe to your channel if you haven't
  • 00:33:51 uploaded for a while a user will be less
  • 00:33:54 likely to subscribe next is video tags
  • 00:33:59 YouTube representatives
  • 00:34:01 officially said that YouTube tags count
  • 00:34:03 as almost nothing when it comes to
  • 00:34:06 recommendations everything has some
  • 00:34:09 amount of impact but this is one of the
  • 00:34:11 lowest impact items so you don't have to
  • 00:34:14 spend too much time on the video tags
  • 00:34:17 although you might as well still put
  • 00:34:21 them in there because it has a very tiny
  • 00:34:23 impact the algorithm looks for patterns
  • 00:34:26 so once it determines that videos from
  • 00:34:28 your channel are often watched by a
  • 00:34:30 certain type of user it will just keep
  • 00:34:33 recommending your videos to that type of
  • 00:34:35 viewer no matter what the tags and the
  • 00:34:38 district and the description say so it's
  • 00:34:40 possible that before the algorithm
  • 00:34:42 identifies a pattern for your channel it
  • 00:34:45 will use tags as an identifier next how
  • 00:34:50 well a previous video performed in my
  • 00:34:54 experience the performance of the
  • 00:34:55 previous video has very little impact on
  • 00:34:58 a subsequent videos performance this is
  • 00:35:01 true both on my channel and then other
  • 00:35:04 channels I've observed however I think
  • 00:35:07 it could impact how quickly a video gets
  • 00:35:10 popular so if a user just watched a
  • 00:35:13 video from your channel the algorithm
  • 00:35:15 may be more likely to recommend a new
  • 00:35:18 video from your channel right after
  • 00:35:20 what's posted but if not many users are
  • 00:35:23 going to click to watch it and they
  • 00:35:25 don't watch fair prefer very long the
  • 00:35:27 algorithm will quickly stop recommending
  • 00:35:29 that new video on the other hand if not
  • 00:35:32 many people watched your previous video
  • 00:35:34 your video may not get recommended a lot
  • 00:35:37 at first but if lots of people are
  • 00:35:39 clicking on it and they are watching it
  • 00:35:41 for a very long time YouTube will start
  • 00:35:44 recommending it a lot I've seen
  • 00:35:46 countless examples of extremely popular
  • 00:35:48 videos coming right after an unpopular
  • 00:35:51 video descriptions these do matter to
  • 00:35:55 the algorithm a little bit just very
  • 00:35:57 little compared to click-through rate
  • 00:35:59 and average view duration which is what
  • 00:36:02 I'm going to talk about later of what
  • 00:36:03 the algorithm algorithm does care about
  • 00:36:06 according to YouTube the first few lines
  • 00:36:09 of a description can be important
  • 00:36:11 especially for searches so you should
  • 00:36:13 fill the first
  • 00:36:14 sentence with as many relevant search
  • 00:36:17 terms as possible when search terms are
  • 00:36:20 lower down in the description they count
  • 00:36:22 less to the algorithm a rookie mistake
  • 00:36:25 is to put links or ads as the first line
  • 00:36:28 in a description while some big-name
  • 00:36:30 YouTube channels do this that's because
  • 00:36:33 the algorithm has already figured out
  • 00:36:35 patterns for where to recommend their
  • 00:36:37 videos for smaller channels you should
  • 00:36:40 always put a keyword rich descriptive
  • 00:36:42 sentence as the first line but remember
  • 00:36:45 even the best description can't make up
  • 00:36:47 for low click-through rates and low
  • 00:36:49 average view duration z' next thing is
  • 00:36:53 subscriber count the algorithm is more
  • 00:36:56 likely to recommend your video to
  • 00:36:58 subscribers so this does have some
  • 00:37:00 impact but I often see very popular
  • 00:37:04 videos on channels with low subscriber
  • 00:37:06 counts and very unpopular videos on
  • 00:37:09 channels with high subscribers if people
  • 00:37:11 don't watch your videos for a long time
  • 00:37:12 it doesn't matter how many subscribers
  • 00:37:14 you have because the algorithm is just
  • 00:37:16 gonna quickly stop recommending your
  • 00:37:18 video to subscribers also subscribers
  • 00:37:21 have to click the bell icon in order to
  • 00:37:23 be notified of every video they don't
  • 00:37:25 click the bell icon then they may not
  • 00:37:28 really be notified of any video on your
  • 00:37:30 channel however there are benefits to
  • 00:37:32 having more subscribers when users
  • 00:37:34 search your videos will appear higher in
  • 00:37:36 the search results if they're subscribed
  • 00:37:37 to your channel also the algorithm is
  • 00:37:40 heavily impacted by patterns if user
  • 00:37:43 clicks on every video from your channel
  • 00:37:45 that appears in the feed then the
  • 00:37:47 algorithm will keep putting more videos
  • 00:37:49 from you in their feed average
  • 00:37:52 percentage of video viewed this one can
  • 00:37:55 have an impact for shorter videos if
  • 00:37:57 your video is just one minute long it
  • 00:38:00 makes a difference what percentage of
  • 00:38:02 the video is viewed but if you're
  • 00:38:04 posting hour-long tutorials the
  • 00:38:06 percentage viewed is much less important
  • 00:38:08 on the freako camp that org channel we
  • 00:38:11 have a four and a half hour long Python
  • 00:38:13 video with over seven million views it's
  • 00:38:15 average view percentage is four point
  • 00:38:18 three percent but it's average view
  • 00:38:20 duration is 11 minutes 20 seconds
  • 00:38:22 average view duration matters way more
  • 00:38:26 than average percentage view
  • 00:38:28 okay this is the important stuff what
  • 00:38:31 the algorithm does care about it cares
  • 00:38:34 about click-through rate and average
  • 00:38:37 view duration basically just those two
  • 00:38:39 things if your videos have a high
  • 00:38:42 click-through rate and high average view
  • 00:38:44 duration nothing else matters your video
  • 00:38:47 will be popular click-through rate
  • 00:38:50 measures how often viewers watch the
  • 00:38:52 video after seeing the thumbnail on
  • 00:38:54 YouTube you need to have a thumbnail
  • 00:38:56 title that people will want to click on
  • 00:38:58 average view duration is how long people
  • 00:39:01 are watching your video on average your
  • 00:39:04 video needs to hold viewers interest for
  • 00:39:07 as long as possible I heard a popular
  • 00:39:09 youtubers say that their video is almost
  • 00:39:11 always going to be popular if you have
  • 00:39:13 at least seven minutes the availa an
  • 00:39:15 average watch time of at least seven
  • 00:39:17 minutes now that's pretty hard to
  • 00:39:19 achieve so it's like a lot of people
  • 00:39:21 aren't going to get to that seven minute
  • 00:39:23 mark but the close we can get the better
  • 00:39:24 hey there my name is RTC or candy or
  • 00:39:27 real tough candy and I am the founder of
  • 00:39:29 the real tough candy YouTube channel
  • 00:39:31 this channel is a software focused
  • 00:39:34 educational channel the little bit of
  • 00:39:36 entertainment thrown in with a very big
  • 00:39:40 emphasis on web development because
  • 00:39:42 everything is going to the web there is
  • 00:39:44 just so much going on in that sphere
  • 00:39:46 that you can talk about it for a very
  • 00:39:49 long time my goal with the channel is to
  • 00:39:52 simply make people better developers
  • 00:39:54 whether they're aspiring developers
  • 00:39:56 they've been in the business for a few
  • 00:39:57 years or they're tried-and-true
  • 00:39:59 battle-hardened senior devs who have
  • 00:40:01 seen it all my goal is to be part of
  • 00:40:03 their journey and make them better devs
  • 00:40:06 I have videos spanning from awesome
  • 00:40:08 github repos to my experiences with
  • 00:40:11 freelancing to getting started with
  • 00:40:13 freelancing and also the author of a few
  • 00:40:15 books and video courses I've been
  • 00:40:16 producing videos as real tough candy for
  • 00:40:18 about two and a half years if you're
  • 00:40:20 thinking about starting a software
  • 00:40:23 channel on YouTube number one I would
  • 00:40:26 say go for it but I think my most
  • 00:40:27 important advice and the thing I'd
  • 00:40:29 emphasize the most is to do videos that
  • 00:40:33 you care about do topics that you care
  • 00:40:35 about otherwise it just becomes another
  • 00:40:38 drudgery filled task
  • 00:40:41 just Oh time to do another video oh this
  • 00:40:44 person is uploading five days a week I
  • 00:40:46 best I guess I better catch up you're
  • 00:40:48 gonna burn out and then I've done that
  • 00:40:49 I've made that mistake of you know
  • 00:40:51 trying to keep up with the algorithm or
  • 00:40:52 trying to keep up with other people in
  • 00:40:54 this niche you just have to do it your
  • 00:40:56 way and I've been going on camera more
  • 00:40:59 and more I really don't like being on
  • 00:41:01 camera
  • 00:41:02 but people like that they want to see
  • 00:41:04 you even if you are imperfect which most
  • 00:41:08 of us are I know it can be very daunting
  • 00:41:11 I'm always going to have a little bit of
  • 00:41:13 an aversion to being on camera but it's
  • 00:41:16 what people like to see and they like to
  • 00:41:18 see that you're human I don't think you
  • 00:41:20 need to have a passion for it but you
  • 00:41:22 should have an interest in it that's
  • 00:41:24 really gonna show in the videos that you
  • 00:41:26 make I would love to see more creators
  • 00:41:28 on this platform doing software web
  • 00:41:31 development stuff whether it's tutorials
  • 00:41:32 insights just personal journeys those
  • 00:41:35 are really powerful to our personal
  • 00:41:38 journeys especially for self-taught so
  • 00:41:40 important and I think important afford
  • 00:41:43 the record I hope to see your channel
  • 00:41:45 soon and I'll see in the next video well
  • 00:41:50 you don't have to be uploading all the
  • 00:41:51 time it is good to have a consistent
  • 00:41:53 schedule this helps people know that
  • 00:41:57 you're probably gonna upload again
  • 00:41:59 pretty soon so it's worth subscribing to
  • 00:42:01 the channel
  • 00:42:02 now if you aren't gonna publish very
  • 00:42:06 frequently I would say it's probably
  • 00:42:08 better to have more substantial content
  • 00:42:10 like if you're gonna create a three to
  • 00:42:13 four hour like Python tutorial it's
  • 00:42:16 probably okay to upload maybe every
  • 00:42:19 month or two but if you're gonna upload
  • 00:42:22 shorter content like shorter
  • 00:42:23 informational content you may want to
  • 00:42:26 upload more frequently like once a week
  • 00:42:28 or twice a week or maybe like two times
  • 00:42:30 a month or something like that so
  • 00:42:32 consistency also kind of helps you to to
  • 00:42:37 kind of motor get get motivated I know
  • 00:42:39 if you have a consistent schedule you
  • 00:42:41 try to stick to it all the time we'll
  • 00:42:42 help you motivated to continue with that
  • 00:42:45 schedule to help with consistency you
  • 00:42:48 should create goals for yourself an
  • 00:42:50 effective goal is measurable timed and
  • 00:42:54 can
  • 00:42:54 trouble measurable means that the goal
  • 00:42:57 should have a quantified component that
  • 00:42:59 lets you know whether you've reached or
  • 00:43:01 not timed just the goal should have a
  • 00:43:03 specific and realistic deadline
  • 00:43:05 controllable means that you should is
  • 00:43:07 should be an action you can perform
  • 00:43:09 rather than an outcome you want for
  • 00:43:12 example your goal may be to put out one
  • 00:43:14 video measurable per week timed note
  • 00:43:19 that put out a video is an action you
  • 00:43:21 can perform but reach 1000 subscribers
  • 00:43:24 is not an action but an outcome you
  • 00:43:27 should create goals that are ambitious
  • 00:43:29 but still doable this will depend quite
  • 00:43:31 a bit on your stage of life if you're a
  • 00:43:33 single person with no job you'll be able
  • 00:43:36 to create much more content than a
  • 00:43:37 married person with three kids and a
  • 00:43:40 full-time job
  • 00:43:44 when thinking about making money you
  • 00:43:46 must know what your goals are
  • 00:43:47 now some people just want to provide
  • 00:43:49 free free learning resources and they're
  • 00:43:51 not really concerned about making money
  • 00:43:53 but most people aren't able to invest
  • 00:43:55 time into creating resources unless
  • 00:43:57 they're compensated a bit here are a few
  • 00:44:00 common ways that your software channel
  • 00:44:02 can make you money we'll go over all of
  • 00:44:06 these one at a time for most people the
  • 00:44:09 primary way a software YouTube channel
  • 00:44:11 will help you make money is through
  • 00:44:13 helping you get a new job or a raise I
  • 00:44:16 already mentioned that starting a
  • 00:44:17 YouTube channel was really helpful for
  • 00:44:19 me when I went to get my first software
  • 00:44:21 developer job and I've heard similar
  • 00:44:23 stories from a lot of different creators
  • 00:44:26 so let's hear first-hand from Jessie
  • 00:44:28 Weigel about how live-streaming
  • 00:44:31 helped him in his career live coding was
  • 00:44:34 so helpful whenever I was looking for a
  • 00:44:37 job and going on interviews which was it
  • 00:44:41 was unexpected to me but seeing that I
  • 00:44:46 did the live coding
  • 00:44:47 on my resume and being able to watch my
  • 00:44:51 my shows I think got me more interviews
  • 00:44:57 than anything else that I did so and
  • 00:45:00 employers already knew what they were
  • 00:45:02 getting when when they called me in for
  • 00:45:06 the interview normally it's like you
  • 00:45:11 know it's kind of a mystery what the
  • 00:45:13 person is really gonna be like you can't
  • 00:45:15 tell that much you know from a resume or
  • 00:45:17 a portfolio but being able to see my
  • 00:45:23 thought process while encoding made me a
  • 00:45:27 more attractive candidate because it
  • 00:45:29 took some of that that question out of
  • 00:45:32 it I was like what are we getting into
  • 00:45:34 so it's a big commitment when you hire
  • 00:45:36 somebody so being able to show you know
  • 00:45:41 my skills and my personality my thought
  • 00:45:44 process you know online through live
  • 00:45:48 coding was just it was a big bonus and
  • 00:45:53 to potential employers also when I went
  • 00:45:56 on the interviews
  • 00:45:57 that I got asked about my live coding
  • 00:46:01 experience more than anything else
  • 00:46:03 everybody wanted to know about it I
  • 00:46:06 guess it's something that it seems like
  • 00:46:11 a lot of other developers are curious
  • 00:46:13 about or they wonder like how how could
  • 00:46:15 you do that just the idea of being able
  • 00:46:21 to make mistakes in front of all those
  • 00:46:22 people or being able to talk you know so
  • 00:46:25 much while you're coding and that's
  • 00:46:27 another aspect that that was very
  • 00:46:29 helpful when I actually did get an
  • 00:46:32 interview and I had to do a coding
  • 00:46:34 exercise one of the big things that
  • 00:46:37 people are looking for is that you know
  • 00:46:41 they don't they don't want to know if
  • 00:46:44 you can just do the coding exercise they
  • 00:46:47 want to know your thought process your
  • 00:46:49 problem solving skills so I already had
  • 00:46:52 so much practice at explaining what I
  • 00:46:54 was doing while I was doing it through
  • 00:46:58 live coding so that was that was perfect
  • 00:47:00 so when I went in there it was just it
  • 00:47:03 was totally normal for me to just say
  • 00:47:06 what I was thinking as I was doing it so
  • 00:47:11 in a very unexpected way live coding
  • 00:47:15 definitely helped helped me get
  • 00:47:17 interviews and help me prepare for
  • 00:47:19 interviews the next way you can make
  • 00:47:22 money is through YouTube ad revenue but
  • 00:47:25 you probably won't make that much money
  • 00:47:28 this way most channels earn between $1
  • 00:47:31 and $2 $0.50 u.s. dollars per 1,000
  • 00:47:36 views but it is possible to earn less or
  • 00:47:39 more than that so if you want to make
  • 00:47:41 thirty thousand dollars in a year you
  • 00:47:43 may have to get thirty million views the
  • 00:47:47 free code camp that org channel is
  • 00:47:49 ad-free however my personal robot family
  • 00:47:52 channel shows ads and I generally get
  • 00:47:55 about $1 to $1 50 cents per 1000 views
  • 00:47:59 for videos under 10 minutes and $2.00 to
  • 00:48:03 $2.50 per 1000 views for videos over 10
  • 00:48:07 minutes at 10 minutes you are allowed to
  • 00:48:10 add
  • 00:48:11 roll ads and I was very surprised with
  • 00:48:14 how much extra money that made me you
  • 00:48:17 only make money on video ads if people
  • 00:48:20 click on them or watch at least 30
  • 00:48:22 seconds of the ad if they click on skip
  • 00:48:26 ad you make no money also the amount of
  • 00:48:29 money you make per ad is dependent on
  • 00:48:32 the country that the viewer is in some
  • 00:48:35 viewers will make you more money than
  • 00:48:37 other viewers this is one of the reasons
  • 00:48:40 there is such a big difference in how
  • 00:48:42 much money you can make one of the more
  • 00:48:44 effective ways to make money on YouTube
  • 00:48:46 is to use easier YouTube channel to help
  • 00:48:48 promote your paid courses
  • 00:48:50 maash from the program with mas YouTube
  • 00:48:53 channel seems to do pretty well with
  • 00:48:56 this model for this to work best you
  • 00:48:58 need to create multiple high quality
  • 00:49:01 complete courses release some full
  • 00:49:04 courses for free on YouTube and use
  • 00:49:07 those courses to advertise your paid
  • 00:49:10 courses some people go about this in the
  • 00:49:12 wrong way they'll create this full paid
  • 00:49:15 course and just release just like a
  • 00:49:17 portion of it on YouTube and hopefully
  • 00:49:20 that portion will encourage people to
  • 00:49:22 buy the paid course that's the wrong way
  • 00:49:24 to do it what you want to do is create
  • 00:49:26 two full length courses release one full
  • 00:49:30 length course on YouTube for free and
  • 00:49:33 use that to help promote your other full
  • 00:49:35 length course if you just released a
  • 00:49:38 small portion of your course on YouTube
  • 00:49:40 it's not going to generate as many views
  • 00:49:43 so not as many people are gonna watch it
  • 00:49:45 they're not gonna want to watch this a
  • 00:49:46 partial course so then you won't get
  • 00:49:48 very much promotion for your paid course
  • 00:49:51 but if you release a full course on
  • 00:49:53 YouTube then you're really gonna get a
  • 00:49:55 lot of people watching that and a lot of
  • 00:49:57 views for your full paid course many
  • 00:50:00 people who create software tutorials
  • 00:50:02 have had success with patreon let's hear
  • 00:50:05 some tips from Kevin Markham who has had
  • 00:50:07 a lot of success with patreon hi there
  • 00:50:09 my name is Kevin Markham and I teach
  • 00:50:11 data science in Python through my
  • 00:50:13 youtube channel which is called data
  • 00:50:15 school I've been using patreon to
  • 00:50:18 support my page for about a year and so
  • 00:50:20 I'd like to share two things
  • 00:50:22 with you number one who should start a
  • 00:50:24 patreon page and number two seven quick
  • 00:50:28 tips for being successful on patreon so
  • 00:50:32 who should start a patreon page well I
  • 00:50:35 would recommend that if you are
  • 00:50:37 interested in building community and
  • 00:50:39 then delivering value to that community
  • 00:50:42 then you are a good fit for using
  • 00:50:45 patreon if your only motivation is to
  • 00:50:48 make money then I don't recommend
  • 00:50:49 patreon quite frankly unless you are
  • 00:50:53 legitimately famous putting a link to
  • 00:50:56 patreon from your YouTube channel page
  • 00:50:59 is not gonna suddenly bring in a lot of
  • 00:51:01 money instead I'm doing well on patreon
  • 00:51:05 requires a lot of work and so unless
  • 00:51:07 you're really interested in doing that
  • 00:51:09 work and enjoy that work it's not a good
  • 00:51:12 use of your time and you're gonna burn
  • 00:51:14 out and that's not good for you or for
  • 00:51:16 your fans okay let's move on to my seven
  • 00:51:21 quick tips for being successful on
  • 00:51:23 patreon tip number one deliver a lot of
  • 00:51:27 value to your audience for free before
  • 00:51:30 starting a patreon page the reason is
  • 00:51:33 this very few people are gonna support
  • 00:51:35 you financially unless you've already
  • 00:51:38 demonstrated to them that you can create
  • 00:51:40 great videos that they love tip number
  • 00:51:44 two try to build a following outside of
  • 00:51:46 YouTube so that you have more ways to
  • 00:51:49 communicate with your audience social
  • 00:51:52 media is one option for this but even
  • 00:51:54 better is starting an email list and
  • 00:51:56 getting them to subscribe tip number
  • 00:51:59 three study successful patreon pages and
  • 00:52:03 check out their rewards and how they
  • 00:52:05 describe the value they're offering that
  • 00:52:08 will help you to refine your rewards and
  • 00:52:10 how you communicate your value
  • 00:52:12 proposition tip number four before you
  • 00:52:16 launch draft your patreon page and share
  • 00:52:19 it with some of your top fans to get
  • 00:52:21 their feedback that'll help you to
  • 00:52:23 determine whether you're offering the
  • 00:52:25 right rewards and at the right price
  • 00:52:27 is tip number five when you launch talk
  • 00:52:32 with your fans authentically about
  • 00:52:34 patreon and why they should join give
  • 00:52:37 them some time to join and you can
  • 00:52:38 remind them every now and again but
  • 00:52:41 don't try to make them feel guilty for
  • 00:52:43 not becoming a patron tip number six
  • 00:52:46 once people join build that community
  • 00:52:49 that we've been talking about create
  • 00:52:52 meaningful ways for you to interact with
  • 00:52:54 your patrons and ideally give them ways
  • 00:52:57 to interact with each other
  • 00:52:59 tip number seven deliver value to your
  • 00:53:02 patrons offer them bonus content and
  • 00:53:05 cool rewards do special things for them
  • 00:53:08 when you can thank them frequently and
  • 00:53:11 above all else prioritize them over the
  • 00:53:15 rest of your fans because they're
  • 00:53:16 supporting you financially and keep
  • 00:53:19 doing this every single month because
  • 00:53:21 patreon is a marathon not a sprint
  • 00:53:24 okay I hope these tips have been helpful
  • 00:53:27 to you good luck with your channel and
  • 00:53:30 with your patreon page many creators
  • 00:53:33 make money through videos sponsorships
  • 00:53:34 killed curry has some great tips for
  • 00:53:37 making money through sponsorships hey
  • 00:53:39 everyone its Caleb thank you both for
  • 00:53:41 having me I'm gonna be sharing with you
  • 00:53:42 guys how you can get sponsors for your
  • 00:53:44 content I'm actually really excited that
  • 00:53:46 you reached out to me for this because
  • 00:53:47 I've tried various ways of monetizing my
  • 00:53:50 content I've tried courses I've tried
  • 00:53:52 monthly subscriptions and for me nothing
  • 00:53:54 has really clicked other creators have
  • 00:53:56 done a great job and that's awesome they
  • 00:53:58 should keep doing that but I found that
  • 00:53:59 my true skill is with these sponsorships
  • 00:54:02 it's how I've made the majority of my
  • 00:54:04 income and it's how I'm able to do
  • 00:54:05 YouTube as a full-time project now how
  • 00:54:09 do you actually get that first sponsor
  • 00:54:11 the number one way I have found that I
  • 00:54:13 was able to get sponsors and I'm still
  • 00:54:15 getting sponsors today is with a contact
  • 00:54:18 form on my website
  • 00:54:19 consider it a landing page a lead page
  • 00:54:22 whatever you want to call it essentially
  • 00:54:24 a way a company can fill out the form
  • 00:54:26 say what they're interested in put their
  • 00:54:29 email and click submit when you have
  • 00:54:32 something like this on your website you
  • 00:54:34 are able to control the the flow of
  • 00:54:37 customers so you're they're not being
  • 00:54:39 distracted by other
  • 00:54:40 things to click on yeah they might go to
  • 00:54:42 other parts of your site but if you put
  • 00:54:44 your stuff up on social media or other
  • 00:54:47 websites you are competing against
  • 00:54:49 thousands of other people but on your
  • 00:54:52 own site you are the the sole owner of
  • 00:54:54 that website and you can control the
  • 00:54:56 experience on that website which means
  • 00:54:59 your going to get much higher quality
  • 00:55:00 leads and the conversion is going to be
  • 00:55:03 much higher if you get someone to check
  • 00:55:04 out that sponsorship page they're very
  • 00:55:08 highly highly likely to fill out that
  • 00:55:10 form at the bottom the second thing is
  • 00:55:12 that you can share this form with your
  • 00:55:13 audience or link to it on the homepage
  • 00:55:16 of your website you don't want it to be
  • 00:55:18 the only thing people see like my
  • 00:55:21 goodness this guy will not stop
  • 00:55:22 advertising his sponsorship
  • 00:55:24 opportunities but you also don't want it
  • 00:55:26 to be hidden where a company would have
  • 00:55:28 to search for it you want companies to
  • 00:55:30 be able to easily reach out to you in a
  • 00:55:32 professional way and three go through
  • 00:55:35 the added effort to refine your niche
  • 00:55:37 and make your value proposition
  • 00:55:40 extremely clear you should have a
  • 00:55:42 general niche
  • 00:55:43 maybe it's programming or maybe it's a
  • 00:55:45 web development or app development
  • 00:55:46 whatever it is you start with that in
  • 00:55:49 stage three of my little plan I have
  • 00:55:51 here you refine that and get very clear
  • 00:55:54 about what a sponsor is going to get
  • 00:55:56 from sponsoring your series step four is
  • 00:55:59 to try to quantify the value that you're
  • 00:56:02 offering them you don't want to scare
  • 00:56:04 them off with numbers like if you're
  • 00:56:06 just trying to get a sponsor you don't
  • 00:56:08 need to give them the ROI and the
  • 00:56:11 conversion rate of clicks and also just
  • 00:56:12 don't overwhelm them with information
  • 00:56:14 unless they specifically ask but for
  • 00:56:16 your sake and also for the sake of
  • 00:56:18 getting new sponsors you should probably
  • 00:56:20 have some way to measure the performance
  • 00:56:23 of your advertisements the performance
  • 00:56:24 of your videos and what you can do is
  • 00:56:26 you can build tracking links in your
  • 00:56:28 description and you can see what the
  • 00:56:30 click-through rate is you know maybe a
  • 00:56:32 video gets 10,000 views a hundred people
  • 00:56:34 click it and two people sign up you've
  • 00:56:37 essentially taken a view count and
  • 00:56:39 figured out how many signups that
  • 00:56:41 translates to now it is vague and
  • 00:56:43 different companies have different goals
  • 00:56:45 some are going to want signups and some
  • 00:56:46 are just going to want brand awareness
  • 00:56:48 so you got to be open and flexible but
  • 00:56:50 you should ultimately have
  • 00:56:52 some perspective on how well your
  • 00:56:54 channel does and how well a sponsor is
  • 00:56:57 going to perform on your channel so for
  • 00:56:59 all of my sponsors they go through a
  • 00:57:02 trackable link that I can see how many
  • 00:57:03 clicks they've gotten Step five is start
  • 00:57:06 to grow your sponsorship base obviously
  • 00:57:08 any time you can get a repeating sponsor
  • 00:57:10 that is great but being open to
  • 00:57:12 different sponsors without just taking
  • 00:57:14 anything is going to be good for your
  • 00:57:16 brand as well because that gives a
  • 00:57:18 larger variety to your content and
  • 00:57:20 allows you to be creative in the types
  • 00:57:22 of advertisements which by the way try
  • 00:57:25 to make your ads creative I do skits
  • 00:57:27 I'm excited in my ad spots you don't
  • 00:57:29 want to be one person in your videos and
  • 00:57:31 a totally different person in your ad
  • 00:57:32 spots they should be the same thing so
  • 00:57:35 step five is to grow that sponsorship
  • 00:57:37 base and just get more experience doing
  • 00:57:40 it and start increasing your prices to
  • 00:57:42 where you can actually make a
  • 00:57:43 substantial amount of money and now
  • 00:57:45 we'll move on to step 6 and for me I'm
  • 00:57:48 somewhere between five and six so this
  • 00:57:51 is exactly where I'm at right now step
  • 00:57:53 six is to try to productize or
  • 00:57:56 standardize your sponsorships so far
  • 00:57:58 I've just kind of been working with
  • 00:58:00 whatever the company's going for you
  • 00:58:02 know I'm trying to meet their needs in
  • 00:58:03 an exact way but now I'm to the point
  • 00:58:05 where I'm getting lots of sponsorship
  • 00:58:07 requests and I can start saying no on
  • 00:58:09 the regular I can also increase prices a
  • 00:58:11 lot because of the demand so as an
  • 00:58:14 example you could say hey you can get
  • 00:58:17 twenty to thirty second ads embedded in
  • 00:58:19 my videos you can get eight of them for
  • 00:58:22 this many dollars
  • 00:58:23 once you productize your stuff it makes
  • 00:58:25 it easier to automate the process and
  • 00:58:27 make your life a whole lot easier
  • 00:58:29 so I'm refining my contact me form to
  • 00:58:32 have those options the company can say
  • 00:58:34 exactly what they want and it takes the
  • 00:58:36 mental stress off of me to have to come
  • 00:58:38 up with a brand new idea every time a
  • 00:58:40 company reaches out to me so those are
  • 00:58:42 just the basics if you want more details
  • 00:58:44 I'm releasing more entrepreneurship
  • 00:58:46 content on my channel as well as app
  • 00:58:48 development and where those two come
  • 00:58:49 together I'd love to have you guys I'm
  • 00:58:52 not gonna advertise but go check out my
  • 00:58:54 channel I'm just playing thank you and
  • 00:58:56 let me know what you guys think what
  • 00:58:58 tips would you have for sponsorships
  • 00:59:01 promoting can be challenging if you're
  • 00:59:03 just starting out you must think about
  • 00:59:06 your target audience could come across
  • 00:59:07 your videos here are some ideas you can
  • 00:59:11 post irrelevant sub reddits or you may
  • 00:59:14 want to submit to a coding newsletter
  • 00:59:15 like the code newbie newsletter or maybe
  • 00:59:19 what you can share on programming forums
  • 00:59:21 such as the freak Ocampa org forum now
  • 00:59:25 note about forums it's more appropriate
  • 00:59:27 to share on forums that you're already
  • 00:59:29 active on for instance if you're already
  • 00:59:32 active on the free code camp that org
  • 00:59:33 forum there'll be a great place to share
  • 00:59:35 your videos but there if there are other
  • 00:59:37 forums that you're already active on
  • 00:59:39 that could be a better place to share
  • 00:59:41 your videos another option is to get
  • 00:59:44 your video published on a more popular
  • 00:59:46 channel for instance the free code cam
  • 00:59:48 channel we publish tutorials from a lot
  • 00:59:51 of different contributors and if your
  • 00:59:53 goal is just to get your video in front
  • 00:59:54 of as many people as possible the free
  • 00:59:56 code camp channel could be a good option
  • 00:59:59 so if you want to submit a video to me
  • 01:00:01 here's my email address buh at freak
  • 01:00:04 Ocampa
  • 01:00:05 org we may be able to publish your video
  • 01:00:07 on our channel also maybe you'll find a
  • 01:00:10 different channel that you can submit
  • 01:00:11 your videos to if you want to kind of
  • 01:00:13 take advantage of an an audience that
  • 01:00:15 already exists okay let's just end with
  • 01:00:17 some miscellaneous tips first of all
  • 01:00:20 consider adding in screens to your
  • 01:00:22 videos they can lead to many more views
  • 01:00:25 especially if you create shorter videos
  • 01:00:27 on my personal robot family channel I
  • 01:00:30 get six percent of views from in screens
  • 01:00:33 if a video is part of the playlist
  • 01:00:35 always link to the playlist in the
  • 01:00:37 description there's nothing worse than
  • 01:00:40 coming across a really great video
  • 01:00:41 that's part of a series but then you
  • 01:00:43 can't figure out how to get to the other
  • 01:00:45 videos in that series so playlist in the
  • 01:00:47 description if you have already created
  • 01:00:51 a full course with lots of individual
  • 01:00:53 videos consider combining them into one
  • 01:00:56 long video if you really want to post
  • 01:00:58 the videos individually never upload
  • 01:01:01 them all at once
  • 01:01:02 make sure to space out each video by at
  • 01:01:04 least a few hours one per day would be
  • 01:01:07 best because if you upload them all at
  • 01:01:09 once they may appear in the wrong order
  • 01:01:11 on your channel and it's better for them
  • 01:01:15 to appear in the correct order it makes
  • 01:01:17 it easier for people to find the right
  • 01:01:18 video in the series
  • 01:01:20 next always expect that each video will
  • 01:01:23 be the first video from your channel
  • 01:01:24 that many people will see if you want to
  • 01:01:27 grow your channel try to maximize the
  • 01:01:29 number of new people who are stumbling
  • 01:01:31 upon it
  • 01:01:32 some creators make the mistake of just
  • 01:01:33 making videos further subscribers this
  • 01:01:36 results in videos that may be confusing
  • 01:01:38 for someone new to the channel you
  • 01:01:41 should always include a quick update
  • 01:01:42 about where people can get prior
  • 01:01:44 knowledge expected especially if viewers
  • 01:01:46 need prior knowledge from other videos
  • 01:01:48 on your channel next never include
  • 01:01:51 background music in a coding tutorial
  • 01:01:53 it's often distracting if people want to
  • 01:01:56 listen to music while watching a
  • 01:01:57 tutorial they can turn on their own
  • 01:01:59 music obviously this doesn't apply for a
  • 01:02:01 software in a team video and other types
  • 01:02:04 of videos but a coding tutorial never
  • 01:02:06 used background music you may want to
  • 01:02:08 use it in an intro or an outro but not
  • 01:02:10 during the the main part of the video
  • 01:02:12 next if you are including a series name
  • 01:02:15 in the title it should be at the end of
  • 01:02:18 the title for instance if you have a
  • 01:02:20 video that's called JavaScript tutorial
  • 01:02:24 – lists like maybe you're creating this
  • 01:02:28 JavaScript series and you're on a video
  • 01:02:31 that's just about lists put the word
  • 01:02:34 lists at the beginning of the title and
  • 01:02:36 the word JavaScript tutorial at the end
  • 01:02:39 of the title okay
  • 01:02:42 now you pretty much know everything you
  • 01:02:44 need to know to get started with your
  • 01:02:46 own software YouTube channel and if you
  • 01:02:49 have any other tips or questions just
