Subscriber Counts Don’t Matter! Interview with Eugene Capon | Podmas Day 6

Subscriber Counts Don’t Matter! Interview with Eugene Capon | Podmas Day 6

I know that title may stir up some debate but today I want to dispel the incorrect assumption that unless you have a ton of subs, you can never make a living on YouTube. I was lucky enough to interview my friend, fellow 2 time Seattle YouTube Day panelist and VR Evangelist, Eugene Capon from Capon Studio.

We started talking about the YouTube demonetization that happened earlier this year, the effect it had on the community and ways that he has managed to build a full time career as a creator online. Eugene has a wealth of knowledge and I hope that you will enjoy this episode.

*Side note: This is the first time I have ever tried to record a conversation that was held via Skype to edit in my audio interface. I ran into some technical difficulties so I apologize that I wasn’t able to fully separate the audio where both of us are speaking to edit out things that were happening at the same time. There may be some parts that aren’t as pleasing to the ear as usual. I will try to improve this for future recordings. Thanks!

Ways to Make Money on YouTube | Podmas Day 5

Ways to Make Money on YouTube | Podmas Day 5

I know that inevitably when the conversation turns to money 2 things happen a lot:
1. Someone has to shout or is at least thinking in their head “SHOW ME THE MONEY!!”
2. When you ask people about money, some of them will go radio silent. As if, they really don’t want to share their secrets with you.

I’m not like that, I’m gonna give you everything I’ve got, and you can do with it whatever you will. I can’t make you do something, only you can, when you finally feel compelled to take action. Today we are tackling different ways to make money online or as a content creator. Is this list all inclusive? Nope! So if you have additional ideas or ways you’re making money, I’d love to have you share with the community and start a conversation.

Here are a list of some resources that you can check out to help you make more money online:

Auditing Your Goals | Podmas Day 1

Auditing Your Goals | Podmas Day 1

Hello everyone! Welcome to Podmas Day 1! I took a poll over on my YouTube community tab (which, if you aren’t following me on YouTube, get yourself over there and subscribe at www.youtube.com/shellysavestheday ) and creating podmas episodes was something that I said I was hoping to do this year.

I know that personally I may not be able to do a video every day like a lot of creators do which is typically referred to as Vlogmas, but I am trying to stretch myself and create more. Plus this gives me the opportunity to practice making podcasts which was one of my goals for this year.

Speaking of goals, this episode is all about facing the music when it comes to all of the goals that I set for myself at the beginning of the year and how I ended up doing. Now I know that the month and therefore the year are not over yet, but I can safely say that for the most part, where I am now is about where I will end up without too many dramatic changes. So this is a good time to reflect and show you that just because someone sets a goal, they may not achieve it, and that is perfectly ok.

I think the trick is that we just have to keep striving forward and trying to get better. Always be learning and never just settle with knowing that “we know enough”. I think the people that continue to push themselves and try new things end up being the ones who grow the most. I know for myself, this year was really about trying to figure out my own voice and point of view and now, trying to make a commitment that gets me closer to being that person.

I’m really grateful for this journey and opportunity. In this episode I also talk about my brand new facebook group and if you want to join in on the fun, feel free to join in too so we can stumble around together and not be alone! You can join here → Brand New to Branded Business
