You want to make a Youtube account and create videos? You already have a Youtube channel but want to learn how to get more views? I'm here to guide you towards more views and closer to success on Youtube!

I started working on my Youtube channel in August 2014 and 2 years later I'm at over 100,000 subscribers generating enough income to treat it as a full time job. 

It took me until September 2015 to actually completely learn about what I'm doing. As soon as I did, my channel went from 12,000 to 80,000 subscribers in 2 months.

Please understand, very quick success is extremely unlikely so you must understand that Youtube will probably be your hobby for the first year, it might be less and it might be more, it all depends on your willingness to implement the knowledge you gain from this course.

The purpose of this course is to give you the idea of how Youtube works and what you need to do to grow your channel. It serves as a guide to make you understand the technical aspects of growth on Youtube. I cannot teach you how to create your content because I don't share your personality and interests.

Youtuber, Web Admin, SEO & Social Media Analyst

I am primarily a Youtuber and I'm located in Croatia. I've been making gaming videos since 2012 and while I did suck at making them for a long time, I think that in mid 2015 I finally learned how to be self aware and use the Internet to better myself and my videos.

I created a Udemy account to publish one tutorial, a basic guide to making Youtube videos for people who are now like I was back in 2012. Instead of spending 3 years, you can spend an hour and learn everything I know and everything I used to get my new channel above 100,000 subscribers in less than 2 years.

In my spare time I like to dabble in SEO, web management and I look at social media graphs quite a bit.

I plan to create more tutorials when I get the time for it.
