YouTube Dying, Trolls, Gangsta Talk, The New Show and Hustling for Beginners

YouTube Dying, Trolls, Gangsta Talk, The New Show and Hustling for Beginners

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

Today is the first edition of the new daily show. I’m going to get into that. Be sure to subscribe to the YouTube channel and be sure to subscribe to the email list. It’s the first thing below because you’ll need to be on that list to take advantage of some things as we go forward.

Today’s topic is a big one. People are losing their minds. Some say YouTube is dying, and you can’t make any money on YouTube. You have a lot of people who are kind of losing it, which is really strange.

I’m going to tell you my story. I’m going to tell you why I don’t think YouTube is dying. I’m also going to tell you why I don’t think YouTube is going to have any real competition anytime soon. If you want to start a YouTube channel, go ahead and start it.

First thing. YouTube is not dying. It’s not close to dying. It’s the second largest search engine after Google.

For that reason alone, it is going to be really hard for someone to fuck with YouTube.

The number 2 reason is cost. No $50 startup is going to compete. No little apps are going to replace YouTube. When you want to learn how to fix an iPhone screen, where do you go? Facebook? No. You go to Google, then you go to YouTube.

If you want to learn how to do a certain kind of dance, if you want to learn about a new workout, where do you go? You go to Google and then to YouTube.

Do you see where I am going with this? It’s not going anywhere.

Let’s talk about the monetization policy. If you want to practice freedom of speech or edgier topics on YouTube, your chances of being recommended by the YouTube search engines could be in jeopardy. You are not going to get sponsored by ads. That’s not a problem if you are an organic hustler.

Question: What do you think about Facebook ads and using it to get customers?

Answer: Facebook ads can be very powerful if you know what you are doing.

Now, if you want to make money on YouTube, your best course of action is to sell your own thing, whether it’s a book, a course or whatever.

I’m going to show you how I used to keep track of my YouTube stats. This is a journal, right? (Glendon holds up a large journal to show the audience)

On 12/25/2010, I had 39,000 views for the month and I had 190,000 total views on the channel. That year, I made $90K.

So, if you have a product, a service and a targeted group, you can make a lot of money with low subscribers and not a lot of views. Here’s the thing with Facebook and YouTube. Facebook counts a view as three seconds. I believe Facebook ad views are vastly inflated.

I have started four brand new channels. You can watch me in this next year build them out. That shows my high level of confidence in the viability of YouTube.

I’m used to making a lot of money without sponsors. I don’t care.

I’m doubling down on YouTube. The live show is coming back. The goal is to do four streams this week.

A lot of the shows are going to be in different places. They’ll be some shows off the phone. I have an office. The goal is for the show to be in the office. I’m going to start the show as the office is being built.

You’ll get to see me build out Mack Daddy Media which is a video marketing consulting company.

I made a hire for a client yesterday. She started yesterday. Possibly next week, there will be two more hires, an artist and a writer. You’ll get to see those people. You’ll get to see the whole process.

You know I put on here about the troubles with hiring people. You don’t hear a lot of people talking about that.

If you want to do a YouTube channel, start one. It’s not going anywhere. For someone to seriously take on YouTube, they’re going to need a nut of $50 million or more because if you look at Snapchat or Instagram, their functionality is pretty singular. You take pictures; you post. They don’t have a whole lot of things going on.

I have well over 2000 videos across a few channels. If I had to pay the hosting for that and I’m going to go way back to 2009, I would be looking at $20K to $30K a month for the bandwidth.

That’s incredibly powerful. Plus, when you factor in the reach of YouTube, it’s incredible.

There’s another reason YouTube isn’t going anywhere. People are like… “Shit, I want to be put on. I want someone to see me. I want to get some fame.” They’re going to create YouTube channels.

In 2009, I had to use Hand Brake to crank down the encoding to upload the video to YouTube because my stuff was too big. YouTube does all that stuff automatically. If you had to make your video, render your video, code your video, do all that stuff, it’s incredibly time-consuming and expensive. So, they’re not going anywhere.

I’m going to create a Troll Hit Squad. Every time I have a live stream, there are going to be people on the Hit Squad that are going to get 20% off courses and stuff. You have to be an active member of the Hit Squad first. What haters do, because haters are a group of intellectually impotent people, financially impotent people, is they get joy out of destroying something because they can’t build. We are not going to have that.

Question: What’s the best way to finance a media venture?

Answer: Don’t finance it. Create it on your own and go as far as you can before you start throwing money at it.

Physical businesses are the quickest way to make scratch. If you build your physical business, it gives you skills to make money online.

My YouTube channels are segmented. With Personal Development for hustlers, there’s going to be some wild stuff on there. Rich Self Published Author, that channel with be about the writing process. Mack Daddy Media is a video marketing agency.

Writing online is not going anywhere. There’s a lot of older people that still like to read stuff.

When you go to I am Cameron, that is my fuckery channel. I’ll be talking about current events. I’ll be talking about crazy stuff.

Mack Daddy Media is going to be about all things digital. That’s about video marketing. That’ll be about creating courses.

Business School for Hustlers is going to be for seasoned business owners.

Make sure you subscribe to all of the channels because each channel is going to have different stuff. Be sure to get on my email list for updates to live streams and special offers. Subscribe today!


How to Make Money From Youtube

How To Make Money From Youtube

How To Make Money From YouTube

You want to get rich quick? You want to make money on right now? Lean in. Lean in closer. I’ll tell you how you can make a lot of moneyMaking fat stacks takes work a four letter word people seem to have forgotten. If you’re looking for something easy and simple making money from Youtube is not the right thing for you. If you’re looking make a livable income from Youtube—if you’re willing to invest in the work—this video is going to you how to make a six figure income. So get ready to learn how to make money from Youtube.

Sell a physical product. Let’s assume that you already have a product to sell. You can set up an ecommerce storefront using a resource like Shopify, then produce videos that fit into your product’s niche. At the end of the videos, you can produce calculated (Call To Action) CTAs that funnel traffic to your product landing pages.

There’s obviously a lot more to it than this, but for all intents and purposes, that’s what the conversion funnel looks like. If you have a good product and your videos are simple and engaging, this funnel will work almost every time.

If your end goal is to actually make money from videos, there’s a far better option than simply relying on your measly allocation of ad revenue or adsense. Instead, create a YouTube channel and build an audience. The primary goal is to engage this audience and build a brand name. Then, once you’ve established a reputation, begin driving traffic to your own landing pages where you can up-sell viewers with premium video content. Attach a blog with corresponding articles and updates to your channel. Have a fly blog writer upload the content for you because she is awesome.

Start Three to Five Youtube Channels. Do you remember what a pen is and how to write with it? Good. Make a list of the following:

1. Things You Like
2. Things You Want To Do
3. Things You’re Good At

My personal three things would be:

1. Talking about Game of Thrones
2. Make my own marinara sauce
3. Writing professionally and creatively

This is your infrastructure. Your foundation. You can even make more youtube channels if you like but it’s good to start out with this premise. Why? Because if you bet on one of these horses one of them will probably win. But you gotta stick with it. Go check out the competition because believe me: all three of my ideas have very successful youtube channels already.

Don’t let the success of other Youtube channels deter you. As you make more videos you’ll hone in your skills. You’ll get better at creating content, video editing, making call to actions within your video. All of it. It takes practice. One of your channels will catch fire and you’ll start making money. You’ll roll in dough. It might not even be the channel you really wanted. I can tell you if I had to my marinara youtube channel started making all the money I wouldn’t be thrilled. Ain’t nobody got time to make—actually I stand corrected. Either way, trial and error is a great way to start.


Don’t tell your audience “I’m not selling anything.” In video marketing you are always selling something. Whether it’s your personality, or a product, or an idea. Hell, even the President is a product—he’s making Youtuber’s lots of money (for better or for worse I’ll let you decide). So if straight out of the gate you say, “I’m not selling anything” or “I’m not here to sell you something” it’s already a lie. Your youtube audience likes it when you’re straight with them so be straight with them. If your content is banging they will buy.

You have to have a lot of grit and entrepreneurial spirit when starting a youtube channel. Especially if you’re doing it for money. But with enough time and practice you can make a livable income off of youtube and then you’ll be teaching other people how to make money from Youtube.


The Secret to Making Money Online in 2017


Making money online is fucking hard. That’s a really good word for it. I’m going to tell you how it really is. I know I was supposed to give you some simple, quick, easy motivational message about what it takes to make money online. There’s been a lot of confusion. There’s been a lot of people who are somewhat really troubled. I do apologize. I don’t have any of that stuff.

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

If you are really, really interested in making money online, I want you to listen to me. I want you to pay attention because I am going to tell you exactly what you need to do. Work. Work some more. Work tonight. Work tomorrow. Work this weekend. Work next weekend. Work this summer. Work Christmas.

You need to work. One of the things that is really frustrating for me is that I have stuff I can give you, but it’s got to go through this bullshit filter that is so thick. I’ll tell you that you have to work and perhaps you will work for a while and not make any money. When this happens, you’ll think I’m deceiving you. People think they’ll make a lot of money fast and when it doesn’t happen like that – there’s something wrong.

What’s really wrong is your perspective. You can make money online. You can make a lot of money online. But more than likely, before you start making money, you will fail. You will lose money. You will make mistakes. You will drive yourself crazy.

I’ve been making money online since 2000 through various sources like EBay and Amazon. At one point, I was doing a little Etsy.

Making money is not some magical super fraternity where you know a secret handshake and a code where you press a button on the wall. No. It’s not like that.

What you have to do is find something that you like enough to deal with the bullshit that’s going to come with making money online.

I like writing. I fucking hate editing.

I now like making YouTube videos. I used to fucking hate making YouTube videos. There’s so many things that you have to go through to be successful long-term.

Writing a book is fucking hard. You can put a lot of time and effort in it and also spend a lot of money for a great cover, and the shit will not sell.

Then you can wake up one morning and write some shit just for fun, some wild ass shit and throw it on Kindle and it sells like hotcakes. You’ll wonder, how the fuck did that happen. Because it happened to me.

A book that I worked on one day took off under a pen name. It was in the right genre. I’ll give you a secret here. Write your book in a genre where there are a lot of readers already. You can build a genre. It’s hard. That goes back to the work.

You can build a business. You can build a website. I had a guy on here in the Bad Ass Hustlers component and he built a business in a weekend that got to a point where he quit his job in six weeks after building that business.

However, the backstory is very important. He had built businesses before. How many times do I need to tell you this. You need to get started with something.

Now, let’s just cut to the chase of making money online.

#1 – You have to stick with it at least for a year or two. Before we get to that, you have to validate and test to see if your concept will make some money. I’m not saying stick with something for a year or two when nobody’s buying it after a month or two. No. That marketplace is telling you there’s something really wrong with your product or with what you’re doing.

But, you have to stick with it.

Now, let’s talk about how much money you can realistically make online as an inexperienced person. You’ve never been online before. You don’t know what you’re doing. You’ve never built a website. You aren’t interested in building a website. I’m going to say probably $10,000 or $20,000 your first year minus costs. You might be at $5K profit.

Now, let’s crank it up. Say you have web experience. If you’ve been doing EBay or Amazon, you are only marginally better than somebody who has been doing nothing online. In fact, the person who is stupid is maybe 90% ahead of where you are. Granted, you know how to work a system.

When you can sell your products and services from your website or some web asset you control enough to make a living consistently year after year, then you actually know what you are doing.

One of the reasons I believe I was able to be successful fairly quickly is I have fucked up quite bit. I’ve made a lot of mistakes. When you make a mistake, you have to ask yourself this question. Is this fuckup detrimental.

The way the world works today is you can build a company that loses money and still make money. I will tell you I did this the first year. I wasn’t really making any money with the YouTube Channel. I wasn’t making any money with the blog. That first year I made $62K and most of it came in the last three or four months.

I went to Lowe’s. I went to Walmart and to Home Depot and applied for a job. They didn’t even call me back. I was looking for a $10 per hour part-time job just to put a little extra change in my pocket.

So, I started working 24 hours a day, literally to make money online.

When you want to make money online, the first thing you need is a concept. The second thing you have to have is some tenacity. The third thing you have to have is a will to win. Tenacity is just sticking with it.

When you can look up when things are going sideways and say, “I’m still doing this,” that’s when you know you are an entrepreneur. If you keep on going, sooner or later you will make money online.

Can I tell you how much? Nope. I can’t. I can tell you, you will win.

To build a business that supports you in a year or two is not a long time.

If you try to live the dream and chase the dream at the same time, it seems like a really, rough, rough timeframe.

How to Make Money Starting a YouTube Channel in 2017

How to Make Money Starting a YouTube Channel in 2017

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video.

When I started on YouTube in 2009, it wasn’t open for everyone to make money from AdSense. I’ve been making money here on YouTube since 2009, because I sell products and services.

Life is funny. When I started my YouTube channel, I didn’t foresee any of the things happening that happened.

This is how I got started. I didn’t have a great camera. I just sat down and I started making videos. It was a little strange, sitting there talking to yourself, by yourself in front of the computer.

My first video was August 6, 2009. It was Hustling Ain’t for Sissies. As I went on I made a lot of videos, a ton of videos. I made so many videos that I became comfortable with the process. It didn’t happen overnight. It was something that took time. I was a storage auction guy for real before the TV shows came on, before all of the hype. That’s something I did for over a decade of my life.

Storage units make money. You buy a unit for $1 or $10 and make $1000. It’s a great way to really maximize your profit.

Another thing that I did was I made a lot of videos. At one point, I was making five videos per day. I just kept cranking them out because the more videos I made, the more traffic I got to my blog. It was amazing. The more traffic I got, the more books I sold. So, over time, my YouTube thing changed quite a bit. I never thought that this channel would have a life of its own.

In the beginning, I hated making videos. In 2009 and 210, I absolutely hated making videos. But there are 1250 videos on this channel now. At some point, the hate became determination. It became fun. It’s fun to make videos now. It’s fun to meet people and interact with them in the comments.

I didn’t see that coming. It was really a huge shock for me because I’m an introvert. I like to be myself and I like to work in private.

I’ve gotten all kind of incredible opportunities because of this YouTube channel. It all started with that horrible first video. It was just terrible.

You can’t begin something without beginning at some place. That was my deal.

So, the cliff notes version of my start in YouTube in 2009 is I uploaded videos. Then, I found out they brought an incredible amount of traffic to my blog which was called Urban Packrat. Don’t look for it. It doesn’t exist anymore.

I would get 10 to 20 hits a day. I started putting up the stories…. The storage auction stories, the Craigslist stories. Then I started getting 200 to 30 hits a day on the blog.

There’s been a great deal of experimentation. There’ s been so much change with the channel. There have been changes in direction, changes in the logo. I really feel like I am just getting started.

So, in 2009, I put videos up. I didn’t know anything about it. The audio was crappy. You see black bars on the side. It was just horrible.

But, like I said, we all have to begin somewhere. Then in 2010, things got a little better. I started to learn some stuff. I started to learn some stuff. I started to make better content. Then, in 2011, that’s the year things just took off.  

In 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, it dawned on me I wasn’t buying storage units anymore. The channel was all about that topic, so I started turning the ship. This rubbed some people the wrong way. They said… “Screw you, we’re leaving.”

So, a word of advice for you is if you start a channel and it gets some traction, you can’t change what you’re talking about without losing the first people who came. It happened to me.

Then in 2013 and 2014 I came up with mindset I’ve had for a long time. I named it the Hustler Mindset Project. I started focusing on that, creating classes and courses. Some of the courses were really good. Most of them weren’t. People told me, “We don’t want them.” That was another learning lesson.

My YouTube channel is really different because it has always been based on selling stuff. I’ve never been overly dependent on AdSense because you have to have a tremendous amount of views or a crazy conversion rate to really rock out on AdSense.

The channel has been about selling stuff since 2009 and I’ve become pretty good at it, which wasn’t really easy. In the beginning, I was so excited for the 100 or 200 views because I was also getting 10 or 20 views on my blog. I was extremely excited and became very determined because I liked the results.

Understand, I didn’t like making videos. That didn’t come until almost my third year. It was really cool that I was able to just whip out a shitty camera, start making videos, start making money online with no experience just because I tried something different and new.

That’s what’s really exciting about YouTube. People are talking about Facebook video and other competitors. I don’t really see anyone being a real threat to YouTube at the moment.

There are many people who asked me questions, like is YouTube still good? My translation of this question is, how hard do I have to work? The answer is: Yes, you do. That’s the thing. I’ve watched many people over the years who started off just like I did with 0 views. It takes time.

One of the reasons I’m really excited is because it seems like the 5th or 6th year is when people really take off.

So, if you want to do YouTube, here are some tips. Pick something that you really like or you can appreciate or learn to like.

Always be yourself. That’s one of the benefits of having a channel. You can be doing what you like all day long and you can make money.

Now, how do you make money on YouTube? Many people throw out the answer AdSense. I think that’s the least efficient way to make money. I have monetized videos. But, once again, I have 1250 videos. There’s only 200 videos that make money. The rest of them make no money.

In my opinion, the best way to make money with YouTube is to use it as a lead generation tool. Hands down, YouTube is the best lead generation tool I’ve seen in my life.

What I’m saying is you have to get started. Play around with it. Have fun.

Another way to start it is to start more than one channel at a time. Start three channels at once. I’ve got five channels.

If you really want to start a channel and you have no clue, I’m going to say you should stay in your backyard. You don’t know what’s really going to work until you really start doing it.
