Wealthy Affiliate BOOTCAMP Completed, 200 YOUTUBE Views

Last Update: May 10, 2021

574 days since joining Wealthy Affiliate (WA), I have FINALLY completed Affiliate Bootcamp training!

This was tough!

Similarly to completing the Online Entrepreneur Certification (OEC) training, I took my time. Areas that I did not understand, I researched and learned from others.

I do not plan to begin Pay-Per-Click (PPC) campaigns until Q4 2021 or Q1 2022 but I have studied and internalised the training well.

The most critical thing for me in the first half of 2021 was launching my YouTube (YT) Channel. My launch date was 1 June 2021 but I am ahead of that timeline.

200 YouTube Views | 25 Subscribers


I launched my YT Channel, Cassi of Troy, 3 weeks ago. It was a simple launch using a PowerPoint and voice-over.

Very courageously, I moved into face-video the following week. Getting over my fear was a major accomplishment but I am very pleased that I made the decision.

Quite a few of our WA members have reached out to support and I appreciate that very much.

Your feedback, comments and PMs are helping me to be more strategic and fine-tune my efforts.

I am now confident that it will not be long until I have my 3 traffic builders, (website, Facebook and YouTube), turning in 4th or 5th gear. 🙂

Thumbnails and Video-Editing


Thumbnails are powerful for your YouTube content. I am taking some time to experiment with them to see what works. Even creating them is an engaging proposition.

After spending almost a month trying to decide on the most effective video-editing software for me at this stage, Pedro shared a WA video today, How to Make Fancy YouTube Videos Without Spending Countless Hours Editing.

It was VERY timely!

So now, I am moving on to producing more polished and professional videos and tightening up on my social media strategies for promoting my content.

This expanded strategy will keep me busy throughout Q2 and Q3 of 2021.

My objective is to be well-positioned for our 2021 Black Friday Sale and the Christmas into New Year 2022 demand.

2022 is my breakthrough year and I am determined to achieve my targets.

How are you progressing with your Q2 2021 objectives?

Good morning Cassi,

Thank you for your blog post, it's great that you're making so much progress.

I think YouTube is a giant leap forward, especially when it comes to speaking directly to the camera! I have to say that the majority of my videos are sharing my screen. I do have a small picture of myself in the right-hand corner. I guess that practice makes perfect and the quicker we can get used to the camera, the better!

Congratulations on finishing the training, I know you have been focused and working hard.

Wishing you all the best,

Roy

Roy, I am enjoying the YT video production.

I took a break for a couple of weeks to do some training and will be back this weekend.

Thank you for your kind words of support.

Good morning Cassi,

Thank you for your reply, it's appreciated.

I believe sometimes it's good to take a step back and to focus on training or something similar, we can come back even better! I hope your training was really beneficial.

Have a great day,

Roy

I love how you set your goals for the year ahead! So inspirational! Congrats on your YT launch!

I am curious to know what you were using for your voice-overs, if you don't mind sharing?

Recording audio that is super clear is such a critical aspect of YT videos. However, most mics that seasoned Youtubers use are super high-tech and expensive!

Im just wondering what to use to start out with. Any ideas??

Thank you, Sasha.

I use a Blue mic or my computer mic.
Both work really well.

Congratulations, Cassi, on your success! You are doing really well.

It's kind of hard to know what all my objectives are when going through the training for the first time. Like you, I want to understand before moving on. But I try to write at least several days a week and I make out daily goals.

Cassi I went and subscribed to your YT channel, I feel like I'm rich after that experience! I'm Rich! Eureka, I'm Rich!

Thank you, and thank you! Like I had a Stranger In A Strange Land experience, where I got more understanding looking for just a few moments of understanding, a moment through Cassi's eyes, than other people just telling stuff about it.
You are this confluence of wisdom, from all over the world, being spoken from one mouth, backed up by the owner of it, living it!
Do these words even make any sense?

I was struggling trying to reflect on this?
Part catharsis, of toss the not working,
and generational junk in the attic of your mind.
Dot dot, that are wasting life and leaving you behind.
Make room for new growth. Every time we start over,
we are closer to an acquisition line!

Gosh darn, I even got the picture of why people get so excited about having their crew of ducks in a row for Black Friday.

Thank you Dear!
