Do you want to spend a couple hours setting up a Youtube Channel that can make you passive income for years to come? In 2012 I recorded 6 short videos presentation videos in under 2 hours and built a simple sales funnel to promote an affiliate offer. My Youtube Channel has grown to over 200,000 views and netted me thousands of dollars in Affiliate Income.

In this course you'll learn a very simple 5 step process that you can use to do the same thing It's made me as much as $178 in a single day.

I'm going to give you the Secret to this success right here without any salesy or gimmicky crap. Basically so many people are trying to get free traffic on Youtube, it's become super competitive, like a jungle.

People who want to make money online are super cheap and want everything for free. I've found that if you are willing to spend JUST A LITTLE BIT of money you get fast results.

So the key here is to spend about $10 to $20 on Youtube Ads to get initial views. These are real views from real targeted people who will actually watch your videos and even comment, which Youtube loves. It's totally different from spending $5 on Fiverr for 1,000 crappy views.

Because so many people are trying to rank for free, your view count will push you ahead of other videos, and that is how my little channel of only six videos gets about 16,000 views a month. I'm not a "Youtube Millionaire" but I get steady leads and sales through this funnel.

The best thing is that so many of the elements are "done for you". You don't have to create an offer, you promote someone elses. That's Affiliate marketing, but-

Most people don't realize that the people selling those courses provide a TON of free content to help you sell their stuff. So for my 6 videos I didn't even write the content, I just took content they gave me and turned it into a video using some simple software. So you do need a microphone but if you don't want to record your own voice I can show you how to get around that too.

And the Vendors usually provide the follow up emails for you too. So really you just have to spend a little time researching, making the videos, setting up a squeeze page, copying the emails into an autoresponder, and then the secret ingredient of the paid traffic to give your channel a boost.

So unlike a lot of other classes there is some real meat in here, and I welcome you to join me.

"I just wanted to say that this is one of the better courses I've found.

I like the step by step instructions for finding keywords and then creating the ads on Youtube. The way that Seth describes everything it makes sense.
I was able to go through the course in about 2 hours and setup an ad.
He also has some videos on creating a video. He covers everything including what to do if you don't want to appear on camera or use your own voice. I like talk to the camera videos, so I drifted through this part.
Overall this is a great buy. I'm not an affiliate but should be." - Misty

But what if you don't know anything about email marketing? Don't worry, many vendors provide these emails for you. All you have to do is copy and paste, and I'll show you how.

Following Up Without Ever Writing an Email

Epic Squeeze was designed by marketers, so there are some cool extra features to increase opt ins like adding Geotageting (i.e. the name of the city the person in visiting from) and also a scarcity tool that has a countdown (like only "10" copies left"), but then the countdown actually goes to 9, 8, 7, etc.

4 years ago I was unemployed, my college degree rotting on the wall, and I no idea how to move forward in my life. I'd worked as a waiter, a Laser Range Safety Officer, Pool Boy, and Pizza Delivery Driver. There didn't seem to be a job where I could contribute any part of myself. Then in 2010 I discovered Internet Marketing, and everything changed. I suddenly discovered a realistic way to monetize my own personal abilities and interests.

I made $30,000+ last year part time through websites that are based on something I am passionate about: filmmaking. I've learned how you can monetize your own knowledge, passion, and life experience and actually build a business around them.

I've sold thousands of dollars of training on film without ever shooting a hot looking video (!) Which is exciting, because people today really want good information and if you can provide it, you don't need a flashy website or to look like Ryan Gosling to sell it.I was an unemployed college graduate in 2010, with previous jobs that included waiting tables, filing papers, and even a brief stint as a Laser Range Safety Officer sitting in a plexiglass booth on top of a mountain in Maui. I discovered Internet Marketing and it changed my life. After 6 months of intense studying, lots of failures I made my first dollar online.

It started slowly, a few hundred dollars here and there, from $8,000 to $15,000 a year and building from there. I'm definitely not the biggest earner online, but that's why I feel I'm good at coaching people - I still know what it's like to start with no sales and build up from there.

Since then I've built several online businesses and a career as a Marketing Specialist. I've managed over $1 Million in ad spend for companies. I advise companies on their Paid and Organic marketing strategies and help individuals build their own profitable websites. And I love showing people how they can do this too.
