I’ve seen some YouTubers getting a bad rap, and that is probably because those are the sensationalists speaking about anything controversial to attract a large following. Those large numbers are all about vanity.
As you may have gathered, I have (had enough of) my share of the online sensationalists. Let’s not get distracted by them. We are here to talk about astute business people and strategies which enable legit online entrepreneurs to make money through their YouTube channels.
So, if that is you (or who you aspire to be), stay with me, this is gonna be awesome! I am so excited to share this video training series with you, there are 9 videos in total and they each cover different aspects of how to make money in YouTube videos.
