How to improve YouTube Channel authority

How to Improve YouTube Channel Authority

One of  the things that I get emailed about most is this: Adam, you are my hero (ok….I lied)

What a lot of folk ask me is why their videos aren’t ranking and getting tons of traffic and views especially after they have fully optimized their YouTube channel as per my training.

Patience! A fully optimized channel is very important (especially if you plan to do YouTube Ads) but you still have some work to do.

Your channel needs backlinks from different domains to help build its Trust Flow and Citation flow.

How to Improve YouTube Channel Authority Video

To take advantage of the tips in the video, you simply need to this:

Create an account here: http://market.source-wave.com/

Then get this gig:: http://beerswithadam.com/YT-Authority

The above link is to a gig on Market Source that will improve your trust flow and citation on Majestic SEO.

You will need a fully optimized channel and your trailer video ready. It will cost $35 one time.

So, once you are fully optimized and have a few videos and a trailer, work on getting your numbers up. That will help.

OR…

You could do it yourself. That will take time and effort but if you know how and have the time, then go for it. For me, my time is worth way more than $35.

YouTube should be treated like a website. It needs to have content uploaded regularly to build it up and in time, and after some effort, your videos will gradually begin to rank automatically on upload.

I hope you got a bit of value from this post on How to Improve YouTube Channel Authority Video. Would appreciate a comment and share..etc! Cheers!

The Infrastructure of list building

List Building & YouTube #3 – The Infrastructure of list building

The Infrastructure of list building >> If you have not yet done so, please go back and read part one and part two on how to build a list with YouTube. This will make more sense then.

Done that? Cool, let’s move on.

In this post, we are going to talk about the infrastructure or tools that you need to get the job done. Now there are a million different options for each part of the process. The majority of them work and they all have their own unique pros and cons.

Don’t stress it too much. Just pick something and roll with it. Whatever you choose there are lots of tutorials on both the product’s help pages as well as on youtube or Google. This is YOUR responsibility to learn this stuff.

The Infrastructure of list building

While we could get really advanced, this series of posts i all about the basics. We are going to need:

+ A way to create pages. I recommend Clickfunnels if you have the budget. 14 day free trial.

+ An Autoresponder. I recommend Aweber.

+ An Amazon s3 Account to host our report (if we go that route). Sign up for free here.

I did think about making a full on step-by-step live tutorial but I think once this video series is complete, I’ll make a bonus video of me setting up a whole opt-in funnel over the shoulder so make sure you keep an eye out for that.

I will use Clickfunnels and Aweber in that video as well and it will be in the make money online niche OR something completely different. not decided yet. Anyhow, it will be made 🙂

Creating a Lead Magnet

How to build a list with YouTube part 2 – Creating a Lead Magnet

In the previous post, I talked about the getting started of List Building on Youtube. And it all begins with doing your research.

Once you have chosen your niche, and identified the problems that folk are having in that niche, you need to have something that solves ONE problem or PART of that problem. And this is something that you will create and will become your Lead Magnet.

Creating a Lead Magnet is not hard, it just takes a little bit of time. The video explains all about it.

Creating a Lead Magnet

As you can see, creating a Lead Magnet basically means writing a PDF or making a video. They key is to offer value and make the person who subscribes to receive it feel as if they have gotten a great deal.

What you do not cover you can include in follow up emails (that info is coming soon). The process is simple, you put your squeeze page in front of people who would be interested and offer your lead magnet in exchange for their email address.

With Youtube this is easy as people come to you. They have high user intent. So as long as your video ranks, and you have your video set up correctly, you WILL get leads.

I will be covering all the steps in later videos but this is all about creating a Lead Magnet.

In short:

  • Google Drive is free and great for PDFs
  • YouTube videos are awesome for free gifts. Screenshot tutorials for example
  • Reports can be as short as 3-4 pages or as long as you want.One of my reports can be gotten here: http://beerswithadam.com/YouTube-gift

Enjoy and I’ll be writing the next post very soon.

Any comments then please leave them below. Oh, a tweet or share would also be good too 🙂

How to build a list with YouTube part 1 Finding Problems via Research

Building a List is something that EVERYONE should be doing and while a lot of folk struggle, it is not really that hard.

silo videos into playlists

How to silo videos into playlists

silo videos into playlists>> Video Creation can be a laborious process at times. Especially when we are required to create content on a regular basis.

While I would never ask anyone to skip on quality, sometimes, the ability to create a large number of videos quickly has its perks, even if the videos are not the best in terms of quality.

Once way you can do this is to follow these steps:

+ Log into the keyword planner and enter a search term or URL

+ Check a little known box to only highlight VERY closely related terms

+ Make videos for each of these term ( so long as the search volume is sufficient)

+ link up to a money video and out to a website you have.

YouTube Video titles

YouTube Video Titles that Work

Get The Click

YouTube Video Titles >> With everyone focussed on rankings and how to game the system, a lot of people forget one simple thing when creating their YouTube videos. The TITLE!

Now, I know you are thinking that no-one forgets to add a title, but that’s not exactly what I meant.

YouTube Video Titles

Here are some practical ideas for your titles that have attractive copy and yet you can weave your keyword in  there:

YouTube Video Titles –  Ideas that Work!

  • How to __________________
  • Did you know __________________?
  • Learn How to ________________
  • The ultimate Guide to______________
  • Discover __________________
  • Who wants to _______________?
  • A little known Secret to ________________
  • 4 ideas for ______________

Of course, you MUST get your keyword in there but you can go for a title like the above then add the keyword.

Example: You wanna rank for ‘the best way to lose tummy fat’

Possible title: Discover the best way to lose tummy fat

I know some of the titles may come across as spammy but they work to attract attention. The title, like the thumbnail is designed to do ONE thing. Get the click. The click means a view.

How to create a Custom Thumbnail that Works

Thumbnails play the same role. They tell the viewer exactly what the video is about and the graphic entices them to click. Luckily, ugly works well. Plain backgrounds with the video keyword in the text (large and readable).

You do not need to be a photoshop expert to make thumbnails that get clicks thankfully

And Oldie but a Goodie

Google Chrome Extension

My Top 10 Google Chrome Extensions

First of all, you should be using Google Chrome as your default browser. No ifs or buts on that one.

Oh, you are already? Smart.

Now as you probably know, Google has a ton of extensions that you can add (many of them free) to make your online affiliate marketing journey much easier.

They appear on the top right of your screen as so:

Google Chrome Extensions

But with all the choices, which ones are really necessary? If you are an affiliate marketer, then I will identify the ones I feel are vital. There may be others but I’ll keep the list to 10.

My Top 10 Google Chrome Extensions

Last Pass

When you have more than one or two passwords, you need a safe and secure way of keeping them all in one place. Also, you can create folders that you can share with your VAs later on down the road if need be.

WOT

What stands for Web of Trust. It basically tells you how trustworthy a website is based on user feedback. It looks at trustworthiness and child safety.

While not always 100% accurate, it’s great for checking out affiliate offers because if they get a poor rating, chances are it’ll be difficult to direct link on places like Facebook.

Grammarly

Anyone writing or outsourcing articles, landers and so on needs to make sure they are well-written. No typos and so on. Grammarly allows you to do this and I am using Grammarly for this article( Now watch the spelling nazis point out an error).

GEO Proxy

If you want to run affiliate offers in other countries this is a great extension. You can simply switch to aproxy of that country and then check out some competition.

FB Pixel Helper

FB Pixel Helper

As you may expect, FB Pixel helper helps you validate your FB Conversion and Custom Audience Pixels.

Redirect Path

Redirect Path flags up 301, 302, 404 and 500 HTTP Status Codes as well as client side redirects like Meta and Javascript redirects, bringing potential issues that may not otherwise be seen to your attention immediately.

Awesome Screenshot

Ever wanted to take a screenshot of the whole screen? With Awesome screenshot you can. Great for capturing sales pages and landers and then to send to VAs to copy or to go over yourself.

Tag Assistant

Tag Assistant helps to troubleshoot installation of various Google tags including Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager.

Tag assistant

It helps you verify that you have installed various Google tags correctly on your page. Just navigate to any page and Tag Assistant will tell you which tags are present, report any errors  and suggest improvements that can be made

Ghostery

Ghostery

When you browse the web, your data leaves a digital footprint. This footprint, connected by tracking technologies (called trackers), helps companies build a profile about you and how you interact with their sites and their competitors, allowing them to optimize their communications and site experience to reach you – and others like you – at the right place, at the right time.

User Agent Switcher

In simple terms, you can view your pages as they would be seen on any device. Great if you are affiliate marketing and want to see how your landing page looks on Android for example.

PS…Hope you enjoyed this post on my top 10 Google Chrome extensions. Please leave a comment and share and also tell me your choice for preferred extension.

 

You are at the Steering Wheel of your life. So make the Right Choices

Throughout our life we are presented with choices all the time. Many of them probably require little thought and you act in the blink of an eye.

But every choice has an impact; good or bad.

Let’s say for example you have high cholesterol. So you get prescription drugs. What does that really do? Solve the issue/problem? No it merely masks it.

What you ultimately need is a change in diet. The cholesterol is the symptom of the root cause of the problem.

Wealthy or poor? Your choice

At the start of this year, I stated that one of my goals was to become a millionaire. I’m already there, but not in the currencies that count. For me to get there I must make the RIGHT choices.

And if you aren’t where you wanna be financially right now, then it’s the result of poor choices.

+ You chose to buy that new shiny object

+ You chose to believe that guy selling that Bizz Opp

+ You chose to give up when the going got tough

+ You chose to watch TV instead of working on your sales funnel

Make the right choice

Make the Right Choice

You get my drift….

Conversely, you are fully responsible for the right choices. That often means saying YES to things that are a bit out of your comfort zone.

Saying Yes to paying $1000 got me  a great mentor (really cheap).

Paying $5K to join a new CPA Mastermind has really opened my eyes as to how this industry works.

Saying yes to my friend Stephen who wanted to bring his partner onto our launch helped me get $105K in revenue in 5 days.

So I am going to give you a chance to make a choice. Only you can make it,

Choice one is to click here now. Will you make the right choice?

Choice two is to enter your email onto the next page (not my page). The information you will get is worth the chance.

Choice three will arrive on the 12th of January. But only if you make the right choice at the start.

You only have something to lose by NOT clicking.

Make the right choice to educate yourself and then perhaps get something that will elevate your business.

Ok…I guess I am not being fair am I? I mean, you have no idea what you are clicking on.

So let me tell you.

On the next page there is video ( long and covers one of the most misunderstood aspects of marketing). This information will, if you market anyting online propel you forward regardless of any other actions you take.

BUT…There is also another place to enter your email. If you make the choice to do so, you’ll get access FREE to  2015 3C Conference Recordings ($997 Real Value!). Nothing to lose.

What is Smart Member 2.0?

In a Nutshell, Smart Member is similar to Udemy, by allowing you to create and launch your own courses, and build your own membership sites.  But unlike Udemy, Smart Member gives YOU more control, allowing you to keep your leads, use your own sales pages, collect money directly, pay affiliates instant commissions, and integrate with 3rd party platforms like JVzoo.

NO OTHER membership platform comes close to Smart Member, Period.

As an aside…Dark Post Profits 3.0 will be launching in February, and as a special fast-action bonus, everyone that gets a lifetime account with Smart Member will be given FREE access to Dark Post Profits 3.0 the following month during the official launch!

So there you have it!.

Make the right choice. Go here now and grab your gift.

PS…Any questions, let me know.

How to Achieve Success in 2016 – And What NOT to do…

2016 is here and already going quickly. With the Internet ever evolving and countless people venturing online, how are YOU going to make sure you have the success you want this year?

Well, I hope to help with some tips as well as some things to watch out for. Let’s kick on.

Obstacles to Success in 2016

This right here is the most fundamental problem that a large majority of marketers have:

Symptom: Buy anything and everything that looks like it will make you $$ easily and quickly

Cause(s): Being way too opportunistic and marketers taking advantage of that.

This right here is the Shiny Object Syndrome you’ve probably heard of.

As someone who emails a lot, it is my job and ultimate goal to become your trusted fiduciary. That is something I admit to have failed in before. But as I personally evolve, I truly want to provide tips and product recommendations that will help you, and not just promote the latest new thing.

But YOU have to meet me halfway too, and not be that opportunistic buyer and be a more strategic buyer ( to quote Rich Shefren).

How to Achieve Success in 2016 – Process Vs. Result

 

How to How to Achieve Success in 2016

 

One tip I can give you here for 2016 is to fall in love with the process, not the result.

What does this mean?

Think of the last time you went to a restaurant and had a fantastic meal.

The result is the meal itself.

The process is the sweat and tears the chef put into to cooking not only your meal, but the training they went through, the countless hours of study…etc.

It was that process that produced the amazing result.

My goals for 2016

My Goals for 2016 – Reach for the Stars

As I type this, 2016 is 12 days away and why wait till New Years Eve to write out my goals for 2016. There is no time like the present.

While I was compiling them, I looked back at my goals for 2015. They made me chuckle.

Some were set way too low. Others, now, seem really unimportant.

And, alas, I missed a few too.

So, here’s a little Video on my old goals:

As you saw, some of my goals were rather silly, some I missed, and some I achieved.

My Goals for 2016

So, what are my goals for 2016? Here they are in no particular order:
+ Spend more time with my daughters. I spent far too much time glued to my laptop in 2015.

+ Build up my affiliate marketing Oracle membership site and build at least 2 more membership sites. Passive income is great. I highly recommend them as they can cover ALL your marketing costs (worst case) and be a full-time income (best case). The key here though is to GIVE more in terms of quality to my members.

+ Get my Video Oracle Site up. FINALLY. It’s current state is here.

+ Get more quality clients and help them build THEIR YouTube and Social Media Presence. Let me know if this interests you (I prefer individuals or small businesses).

+ Have at least 4 $100,000 plus launches. To do this, it’s all about strategic partnerships. I now know who I want to do this with.

+ Bring my annual revenue up to or exceeding $1,000,000. When I got started, this was a pie in the sky figure. Now I KNOW it’s not hard to do.

+ Improve my reviews. Reviews on my Beers With Adam site are hard work (as I do them properly). BUT, that’s imperative to provide people with the truth. Now, I am not (probably) gonna call out the fakes and liars. Others do that well enough. But I may ruffle a few feathers. Less reviews, more quality ones.

+ Help at least 2 people launch their own products. Why only 2? Well, to do 1-1 training and mentorship is hard and 99% of the people I’ve spoken too have the WRONG attitude. Nice folk, but wrong attitude full of excuses why they cannot do things. I used to be that person, so not hating but I don’t want to work with someone like that. I also know MANY folk who will help you make and sell rubbish. Not for me.

+ Become a top Affiliate for my new CPA Network. I recently joined a new program $5K buy-in (A steal). I will become one of their top affiliates by the end of the year (Will, not I hope).

Have I set my hopes to LOW? Maybe. The point is not really the goals, but the reason for setting them:

The real value of setting goals is not the recognition or rewards, it’s the person we become by finding the discipline, courage or commitment to achieve them.
