After taking a break I also understand that consistency and networking is waaay more important than anything. It takes real effort to turn your countless hours to actual monetary gain Reply Thanks for the great tips, but more importantly love hearing you share your real life experiences. It truly goes a long way! Love the content as always! Reply This was really helpful to me. Just started an internet photo site. The meetup site I feel will be very useful. I was not sure how to find events to go to. I am going to be filming YouTube videos very shortly. Also, the suggestion of a list of " the stars" and of my peers I think will be helpful. To keep in my mind to post and interact on there sites. I try to do this anyway but this will be a reminder to do it daily not sporadic. Especially my "peers". I really have grown to enjoy them not just their videos. Thank you for these videos. I think I learn something from each one I look at. Reply hello I m Amor please I have a probleme if you can contact me here email [email protected] Reply the channel help me gain over 2000 subscribers. Sean you deserve 1 million subscribers my man. Thank you for sharing your videos. Reply This video was what i really wanted, coz i feel hapy if i have engagement with less views rather than not having loyal subs and tons of views. Thanks Sean ?? I wanted to ask if you should be the first one to ask for a YouTube collab, to fellow YouTubers with similar content? I tried to just communicate and take tips from a Channel 30 times larger than me but he didn't replied. Was that right, should I try again? Reply Absolutely love this video. I have been employing many of these tips on my fishing Instagram page and have already seen results. I believe patience is key to networking and providing value by working for "free" for others really is a learning moment for you and does open doors. This life is a marathon so do good things, be patient, be genuine, and work hard and things WILL happen. Tight lines y'all!! Reply South Florida has a very small YouTube Community I did find a Miami Youtubers meet up group that seems to only meet every 2 to 3 months. So in place of that I have been going to beauty and fashion industry networking events and since I started doing that my social circle has started to develop and grow. We do have social media week coming in September so I think that will make a major impact for me as Beauty Vlogger on YouTube. Sean thanks for pointing out the networking aspect of growing my channel. I do recognize all the big players in my industry however still trying to figure out how I can bring value to them…I do have somewhat of an idea I'm just not secure enough to present it as of yet. So I have to get over that next Reply You are da bomb. Reply really helpful video thx a lot for making it i really gained a lot from it Reply Maybe it's just me but I feel like all of his videos where he gives "advice" are all the same things with different titles Reply The thing I need to do most is get started, find ways to meet and help others. My goal is not so much about making money as about leaving a legacy after I die. Reply this is a great video Sean? very useful. I haven't seen this type of info other places. Thanks! I'm currently building my brand before my first networking/educational event in November. Reply Thanks for the content bro. These videos have been popping up more and more and helping me with my own YouTube game. ☺️ Reply The most useful tip was definitely looking at the "tribe" leaders of my niche and finding ways and means to get involved in their lifes/their communities in whatever way I can. I don't think I can offer free services to these kinda bigger channels, but maybe I can look smaller and see who I can help. Reply Wow! Great video!!!! You always break it down and make it sound so easy lol Reply I love this video! Very inspiring. We aren't in a large city, but this makes me want to up my networking game both in person & online. Thanks ?? Reply I enjoy all of your videos. But this one is special. I am going to do my one meetup here in munich toghete with a good friend. Thanx for the content. 🙂 Reply Shameless plug! Any one in Kansas City should check out Guildit, it's similar to Creative Mornings or 1 Million Cups (another great meet up). I do video and some social Media for Guildit and it's a free forum were Artist and business people can meet up. If any one wants to learn more feel free to message me. Reply ??? Welcome to my channel. for best royalty free background music for your youtube videos ??? Reply Thank you 🙂 Reply Hey Sean I love the videos that you make but I wish if u do a lumix g7 review because iam thinking to buy it Press a like ? to make sure that Sean see it Reply Can you make a video about adobe premiere and the basics of it 🙂 thanks ? I love your channel Reply I haven't made a video for over a year because I felt like no one was watching, hoping to start again Reply A lot of value there Sean. Like alway man good stuff.

My circle is definitely going to get better from this! Reply This was really helpful, thanks! 🙂 Reply All of this is the between the lines of what we are looking for. Reply brilliant tip ! i am doing such build up in my social circle ! thank you for the tips ! Reply nice Reply Hey community would love the support if you could view content? if you sub I will support you as well?? Reply Great video Sean. I couldn't agree with you more. I do quite a bit of in person networking and lunches. Your tips will expand my efforts. Hey as you grow if you need anything in terms of background checks or investigative services we do pro bono work for YouTubers and influencers like you. Take care! Reply Excellent content as always, thanks think media! Reply Awesome video. The main tip i took from this was to actually go out and find people to connect with. I do my best to apply all of your tips, i have wanted to start a channel for the longest time but never but never did until i started watching your channels. Just wanted to say you're a big motivation for me to actually start my channel and thank you for what you do, keep it up. Reply Shaun sir….. Can I get some idea about vlogging…. I am planning to start a channel and I am good at dancing so will it be good to start a tips video on how to be more good at dancing… Plzz guide me sir… ?? Reply Toastmasters is an amazing event! 😀 Reply Great tips Sean! ? I'm currently focussed on expanding my online network because I always have the kids with me and all our free babysitters live overseas ☺️It has been so exciting and motivating to connect with other YouTubers and I'm learning so much and enjoying all of these wonderful conversations. In the few days I've been part of the VRA community I've learnt tons from the other members – I'm so stoked to be part of your Video Influencers VRA family ? Reply I don't care about the views as much as I want to inform people and entertain people. Other than my friends I have barely gained any subs in a year and a half and 50 videos in. I need to post more but I made a huge investment and I'm rebranding my channel this weekend. With a lot of thanks to your videos Reply Haha funny.I have been thinking – for the last two weeks – in ways of promoting my channel and I came across with the last tips you gave. Why didnt you release this video before! You could have saved me a lot of thinking hahaha.The thing is, by engaging in real and personal and social bonds, you can actually make your account GROW. Do bare in mind these tips, they are more than helpful. Reply What good dslr can I buy for under $200? I am fine if it is not as good as a canon t7i!

On second hand, the camera would also be used to record personal training I do and post on socials. A little help or direction would be greatly appreciated. Reply Plz gave me your e mail i want talk about an important matter plz Reply "The worst thing you can ever do is offer to buy a YouTuber coffee or lunch." ??? Guilty as charged! ? Reply I literally subscribed because of the setup he has in the back. Strong sound system, unique clamps, streaming desk buttons, and the motivational posters. Not to mention the computer looks custom built. I really did like the content of the video too. Reply I am somewhat new to the YouTube thing. I love making videos and sharing fitness with people but it can be frustrating. The best advice on the video was "not to have an agenda." I have recently just been having fun and making videos that I like and enjoy. If nothing comes of it then thats, OK but make sure you enjoy it. Best of luck everyone. Reply I don't seem to have any problems building and growing my Facebook pages (own a few), but growing my YouTube channel has been one of my biggest challenges too date. I joke with my wife that Iraq was a lot easier than building my channel. Lol Reply Great video. I have been working hard on building my own travel channel. Time to start networking more at local events. You are absolutely right that you have to work hard and network. Reply Sean, have you been coached by or have any connection at all to Tom Ferry? You guys speak very similarly in pace, cadence, and vernacular.

Yet another video where you insipre me to keep hustling. #hustleseason Reply Thanks a lot. Guess I'm ready to go. i think my favorite as the pro bono. It even feels great when you have the opportunity to do voluntary work. God bless you. Reply Another thing that can help form a network, Is doing bartering. It has worked well for me in the past. Reply Great video man! Reply "it is best done with zero expectations" BOOM, I feel like some people skip this or it just goes through one ear to the other. Once you start having expectations while network building, YOU LOSE. Now you're not focused on providing value, you're focused on what you can take. I feel like the point of Networking and building these relationships is to give give give in the front end so that HOPEFULLY (no expectations remember) you'll get value in return in the back end.
