This is the hardest phase of being a YouTuber. You’ve probably put off starting the channel for a while and you’re brand new to the game. It’s the steepest part of the learning curve, and you’re overcoming your demons to put yourself out there.
Your next steps - You’re at Level 1 of our 3-part YouTube Growth Framework. So your main job at this point is to Get Going. You’ve got to take the plunge, create the channel, and start making your first few videos. It’ll feel like a struggle, you won’t have any subscribers, and you might not even know what you actually want to make videos about. That’s okay - everyone starts from zero in terms of skill and traction
How the course can help - The course will be most useful if (a) you’re committed to taking YouTube seriously, and (b) you’re joining the course for the accountability, community and support, rather than just the content alone.
If we’re being honest, most of the content in the course can be better applied when you’re a YouTuber with more experience. 50% of the material is around what it takes to make amazing videos, and the other 50% is around strategy, systems, expansion and monetisation. When you’re just starting out, this stuff could feel very overwhelming.
Unless you’re the sort of person who benefits from having all the information as they get started, and wants eyes, thoughts and advice on their channel from the very beginning, the course might feel a bit too much for you.
If you’re in this camp however, a huge beginner benefit is the accountability and the community around the course. It’ll make it endlessly easier to get you over that hurdle of getting started, and to encourage you to take YouTube seriously. The personalised video feedback will massively accelerate your learning curve, and the support from me and my team will get all the questions that start arising answered. The other good news is you’ll have the recordings of all the lessons and be in contact with us forever in the community, so you will always have answers and support when needed in the future too.
To get you ready to start filming from day one, you’ll get free access to my pre-recorded Getting Started with YouTube course, which you should watch and action before the live course starts. You’ll also get free access to my Video Editing with Final Cut course, so if you’re a Mac user that’ll be super helpful for learning the ropes of video editing. If you’d rather not use Final Cut Pro, that’s fine - any editing software will do, and we’ll signpost you to the best tutorials for efficient learning.
