--I earn while I sleep & you can too! It will take HARD work & dedication but I can guide you & you WILL see results--

What could you do with an extra $14,000 considering the money you make now is probably enough to cover all your expenses? Go to Italy or Hawaii? A down payment on a new house or your dream car? Well you can make this money and possibly much more and I can show you how! I made $14,000 in my SPARE time while working a demanding high level corporate job. What could YOU do in your spare time?

I run over 15 YouTube channels and have been on YouTube for over 10 years. What started as a hobby, turned into a source of real cash that a lot of people could really use. I've made over $2400 on just ONE video that took me about 4 hours total time to make. I have many videos that ranked #1 in search and with views from 300,000-700,000 on single videos. Over 14 MILLION people have watched my videos.

This course is the result of not just me simply being on YouTube for 10 years but hours and hours of extensive research and analysis. I've analyzed many channels and many things about YouTube. I've shoot videos at YouTube's studios. I've also been part of Google product research efforts. I will show you all the good, bad and ugly about YouTube. I'll cover things like:

  1. How I rank high in search
  2. How I get a quarter of a million in views on my videos
  3. How I outranked a major global automotive company who likely spends millions in advertising
  4. I'll show you test cases and reveal the secret to how some channels experienced explosive growth in short order
  5. How to get brand deals where you can get checks from $50-$5000 or MUCH more just for mentioning or reviewing a product
  6. How to get subscribers fast
  7. How to get noticed
  8. How to cross promote
  9. How to avoid scary pitfalls like getting your channel deleted over night with no warning
  10. I'll also reveal YouTube's dark secrets and trust me, it's soap opera level drama and you need to be aware of it. It's not all flowers and everything nice on YouTube
    11. How to get free trips and other perks

    In my course I will be showing you the real data that nobody will show you, like exactly how much I make. I'll also show you how much other YouTubers are making and dispel popular myths about pay. We will be looking at a lot of stats.

Who is the target audience?
  • A YouTuber looking to grow their channel
  • A YouTuber looking to grow their NEW channel (less than 4 months old)
  • Somebody looking to start a new YouTube channel and is looking for STRATEGY advice, NOT just basics

This YouTube course is about how to be successful and make good money on YouTube. It's NOT a beginner course on HOW to USE YouTube. The focus here is not on editing and music and other routine tasks. This course is to teach you one thing. How to make your channel a success and that word in the context of this course means, you making $300-6000/month.

Please not there are outdated courses online teaching old techniques and you should not waste your time learning things that won't work anymore in 2016. Also note there are people out there trying to game the system with all kinds of games like click bait. Those tricks generally will not get you anywhere and can risk your channel getting deleted. This course teaches you the real deal on how to build a REAL channel. Not on how to cheat your way into some quick cash.

If you are looking for a way to cheat the system or make a quick buck, then please save your money. I can't help you with that. I can ONLY help those who have the discipline and motivation to be successful. I'm giving you the tools but it's up to you to put your heart into it, of just try to get by and hope to get lucky.

There are others out there who talk about YouTube "tricks" but don't show their success or they had success long ago. Well YouTube is constantly changing. What worked in early 2015 might not work now. Certainly what worked 4 years or more ago won't work anymore. Here is my TINY 2016 channel that is already booming with views well beyond what a channel it's size should get.

I'll explain in another lecture why it's doing so well.

PROOF of concept! My new channel that is BOOMING already!

Since then he has worked for top Wall Street firms as well as for some technology venders. Carlyle has worked at a notable high speed trading brokerage, a few execution management venders (Trading Systems) and also for a leading wealth management company with over $400 billion in assets.

Most of the trading and investment systems he supported were UNIX based with Windows front-end and Oracle, Sybase, IBM DB2, Microsoft or MySQL databases.

Carlyle Frank is also the producer of the #1 rated SQL training video online with tremendous feedback from people all over the world who describe his training videos as uniquely entertaining, easy to comprehend and to the point. Close to 300,000 people have enjoyed being introduced to SQL by Carlyle, in close to a year. Carlyle Frank also has many other videos with some having as much as 700,000 views and more than 10 #1 ranked videos. Well over 10 million people have been entertained and/or educated through Carlyle's videos which are in the thousands since about 2006.

"Dory Q: This is very entertaining to watch, and you teach very effectively! Thank you and keep it up!"

Carlyle also has been published in industry journals and one of his videos were used for a global conference in Asia. The video was chosen because of how entertaining and informative it was, in a format that almost anybody could comprehend. It's all about his formula for "fast, fun and easy" learning that was inspired through frustration with the existing materials that Carlyle had to learn from. The thought process was, "Why does this have to be so hard and why can't it be fun?". The word is, "Infotainment" and the name is Carlyle Frank!
