Course Description

As the artist Manafest I've sold over 300,000 albums worldwide over 1,000,000 singles and toured over 20 different countries.

I've had millions of views on my music videos & lyric videos generated me thousands of dollars as well as thousands of email subscribers.

YouTube is the 2nd biggest search engine right behind google and artists need to start using the platform to maximize there visibility and grow their fanbase.
