Hey Synthesizers! I’m looking for a video storyteller who becomes a co-creator with me. Someone who will be brainstorming, shooting, and editing with me. We’re currently at 500,000 subscribers and we want to take over the personal growth space on YouTube by building a thriving community that moves mountains. (This is a bit of a "needle in a haystack" we’re looking for, so we’re paying a $5,000 referral fee if you end up referring the person we end up hiring long-term.) Anyone come to mind? They don’t have to have all the skills yet because I will teach them everything. We will learn alongside each other. But they do have to have a deep passion & natural talent for storytelling, be insanely hungry to a level that is intimidating, and be very hardworking. This is a full-time, all-in position for someone who wants to be part of something bigger than themselves and, in the process, become someone who is undeniable. This position is not for the faint of heart. It’s very hardcore. They’re going to be working with me here in Austin, TX, learn everything, be plugged into the creator economy, surrounded by creators, in a fast-paced startup environment with a lot of pressure and long hours. But all the struggle will be worth it 10x over. They must be able to relocate to Austin and legally work in the US. If you know someone who might be a fit, send them this post and you could get an easy $5,000 referral fee if they get hired long-term.

This post is split into two parts. 1. Making UNDER $10k/month? Read the FIRST section 2. Making OVER $10k/month? Read the SECOND section --- FIRST SECTION (For those UNDER $10,000/month) Wanna know how I made my first $10,000/month? I made YouTube videos, and then I sold something to my audience. This weekend, my YouTube genius friend Leon will teach you how to make YouTube videos that go viral (he has 500,000+ subscribers and is the best person I know at titles/thumbnails/storytelling) And, as a free bonus, I'll be finally revealing my Creator Monetization protocol (check out the video). Yup, whether you know it or not, I've made a full course that walks you through how to monetize a channel. Up until now I've kept that private for creators with over 100,000 subscribers. But now, for the first time ever, I'll be sharing that with you all. As a one-time only thing, this weekend. This is the exact process I used to go from $1,000/month to $30,000/month and up to $100,000/month. So if you're looking for a path to $10,000/month, this is it. I've been wanting to share this information with you for a long time, but there's never been a compelling reason. Well, this was my excuse to do it. To get more information (and enrol) read here: https://www.skool.com/synthesizers/how-to-blow-up-your-youtube-channel-this-weekend-only PS: This will be a free bonus ON TOP of everything listed in that link. PPS: Yes, unfortunately this will be available this weekend and this weekend only. Doors close in less than 16 hours PPPS: Can't make this weekend? Don't worry, it'll all be recorded so you can watch and enjoy! --- SECOND SECTION (For those OVER $10,000/month) Deep down you know you should be focused on content, but there's just always something more urgent to focus on. You're "at max bandwith" so you'll "get to content later".
In this post, I'll share the biggest lesson I've learned from 40,000,000 long-form video views and also show you some behind-the-scenes of my YT Dashboard (don't share this lol). ________ This @Andrew Kirby guy keeps talking about me so I thought I’d address this… Yes, I didn’t want to do this at first. I don't want to be a YouTube guru, I don't want to be a course creator. I want to just focus on making content. Keep focusing on my craft. But after countless conversations with Andrew, he convinced me to share what I've learned. I love this Synthesizers group and I think we need more educators on YouTube who are crushing it, so I said yes. (I'm noticing this all sounds like a marketing copywriting post lol, but it's all true) I'm only doing this once and Andrew won't convince me to share this stuff again publicly (knock on wood, he is very persuasive...). But... Whether you’re deciding to join us for this weekend or not, I wanted to leave you with something valuable. As a fellow content creator who makes educational videos, I know how challenging it can be in the early days of YouTube. It took me 9 months to get my first 1,000 subscribers. Then about 3 months to get to 100,000 subscribers. There’s one thing I wish I would’ve understood a lot sooner. (I wish I could go back in time and punch myself actually lol) This is by far the biggest lesson I’ve learned after gaining 40,000,000 views (long-form videos, short-form doesn’t count). Here it is: The importance of packaging can never be overestimated. Never. Even if you've "already heard this before". However important or impactful you think titles & thumbnails are… …it’s way more important than you think. Let me give you some examples: - She is getting millions of views with potato camera quality and no editing (her packaging looks random, but it’s actually genius) - I made this video from my bedroom and it got 1,000,000 views. The packaging looks stupidly simple, but I optimized it like a madman. - We invested $25,000 into this video and it only got 50,000 views. Nobody cared despite the crazy production quality. We changed the title & thumbnail and it shot up to over 3,000,000 views. - Rian Doris' first-ever video got 700,000 views because we optimized the title & thumbnail.
Does anybody know an agency or has a contact for someone that can help us repurpose our content on Facebook and split profit? We partnered up with an agency that does that for Snapchat and it's bringing in $3,000+ a month without any work. Highly recommend it! Curious if the same exists for Facebook. This is our channel: https://www.youtube.com/@leonjhendrix/videos If not, there's a great business idea for ya!
