Top positive review
Suggested by Darrel Eves, one of the best books to understand Youtube Business.
1 February 2019
I bought the kindle version of the book and initially, I was a little apprehensive about buying it. But it was worth every paisa of mine.
I recently ventured into youtube and I want to become a youtuber frankly. Sometimes it appears to be very enjoyable and sometimes it is just too boring and hard work.
However, I started a food channel and it worked well but after some time, the growth was just ok and linear and I wanted to know how can I move fast.
Youtube started in 2005. Since then there have been many algorithm changes and several new great features added to make your videos more interesting and catchier. I wanted to know what are the methods to first – grow subscribers and second – get more views.
To know more about youtube, I YouTubed it. Yes, ironic. I found Darrel Eves channels which have been previously recommended to me by many people. I finally decided to watch a few videos from it and the first video that I saw had an interview with a young guy named Sean Cannell who runs many channels among his most famous channel called Video influencers.
He talked about his journey and how he made his channel and failed several times, learned, researched and interacted with other YouTubers to know more about youtube and finally decided to write a book about this experience, the link of which obviously was in the description.
I immediately downloaded the book as the person seem to be well researched and well versed in everything that youtube is.
I was not wrong.
I completed the book in two weeks. It is a short book but I didn’t want to read it like a fiction story. After every suggestion, name or trick he told me, I googled it further to enhance my knowledge about youtube. This book is recommended by me to everyone who wants to be a youtube because this book is super fun to read and gives data about a lot of YouTubers who started their channel and how they started the channel. There are numerous suggestions about do’s and don’t do’s in the book which is of tremendous help because I was doing most of don’t do’s and wondering why the results were not coming. Youtube is the statistics business. There are things which will be obvious to you on a superficial level but they work on an entirely different level when you get inside it.
However, just like any creative field, no amount of technical knowledge will help you if your content is not good and you have not worked on your content. Youtube videos, even vlogs work like films where the youtubers divide the videos into three sections – a proper beginning which is first act, conflict, which is second act and resolution which is the third act. Third act an also be called the call to action because that is what most youtubers do. They give something to the audience to do.
The game is the same. There is a performer and there is an audience and whoever entertains the audience best wins the game. The problem is again the age-old problem. No one exactly knows what the audience wants.
This book, however, will help you tremendously if you are a starter or have started a channel and not getting many views. It will help you for sure. Highly recommended.
