Don’t get me wrong I dont have it all figured out. But what I have learned in the countless nights I read Pinterest articles and searched the web for every piece of information possible to teach myself how to edit, post, film, lights, you name it I can share with you and sum it all up for you so you dont have to waste so much time trying to figure it all out with trial and error. Im here to save you time and money!! Trust me through this process and you will benefit and hopefully come out of this with a successful Youtube channel and another source of income for yourself.

I believe you’ve been lead to my blog so I can help you figure this thing out. We are going to do this together!!
WHY BLOGGERS NEED A YOUTUBE CHANNEL
- Youtube provides an extra income for you in addition to your blog. I currently make twice the revenue from my Youtube channel than I do my blog.
- VIDEO VS. READING Videos are processed by the brain 60,000 times faster than text (Psychology Today) . Its a trust thing too. When people hear me say I like a product vs me posting about it on my blog they are more likely to trust what Im saying and purchase it. Ive found this information to be true when viewing my analytics through rewardStyle.
- EXPAND YOUR AUDIENCE Theres an entire group of people on Youtube you can market to if you just post videos on the site. Youtube suggests videos that are similar to what you’re watching and that could be your video being suggested to someone who doesn’t already follow your blog!!
I dont want to overwhelm you with information but I think this has gotten my point across that bloggers need a youtube channel. A lot of my favorite bloggers already have youtube channels and they are extremely successful with it. Its completely doable if you just start. You can find a million excuses like I did for the longest time but if you just start like you did with your blog you can use my tips and tools to build a successful Youtube channel.
