YouTube seems like a promising platform for people who want to put out their content and monetize it. I don’t see why not. There’s a multitude of YouTubers who are making more than enough through their content. Whenever someone reaches thousands of views, their video gains the potential of being monetized. Today’s Marketing Speak guest, Evan Carmichael, has over 2 million subscribers and over 300 million views. Gary Vaynerchuck called him the DJ who inspires people, and Ed Mylett called him the modern-day Napoleon Hill. At 19, he built and then sold a biotech software company. At 22, he was a venture capitalist and raised $500k to $15M. He now runs a YouTube channel for entrepreneurs, has written four books, and speaks globally. Tune in as we talk about the smart, data-driven decisions you can make when you understand how YouTube works.
