Hello Villageist and thank you.
That's really great to know I am trying to create YouTube videos and wondering if you can help me out please
I recently wrote this to another member, here's a copy:
"New to this, I have done a few with my cell phone but nothing fancy. My niche is close knit Country Living. I am thinking of interviewing local businesses in our small town and promoting on YouTube to give city folks a more concise, accurate description of what it is like living in a small town and an array of eventful marketing strategies alongside my blog, in-depth detailed analysis. What's the right way for a beginner like me with a specific niche? Would your course include gear required and, say for beginner, intermediate and professional, what equipment set up required? Frequency of uploads? Length of videos? How to grow and explode my stats? Marketing strategies etc., do you do some funnelling system with your YouTube. How to efficiently convert? Budgeting required as in paid ads?"
I am thanking you way in advance.
Wishing you well, more success, and a terrific day.
