From a previous business, I realized the power of YouTube, but I wasn’t the one on camera.
I knew the benefits of creating content for YouTube, but I was afraid.
I always got really nervous, broke out in a sweat whenever a camera was pointed in my direction.
After seeing Laura, my business partner, have success growing an audience on YouTube in Spanish, I knew I needed to get over my fear and hit record on my first video.
The first few videos were really tough, I had to record when no one else was around. I couldn’t look at the footage and had someone else edit the videos.
Over time, I became more comfortable talking to a camera. I by no means consider myself completely comfortable where talking to a camera is as natural as talking to another person, but I found a way start and continue to record videos.
If you saw some of the raw footage, you’d see that sometimes it takes me 1-2 hours recording to have all the footage for a 6 minute YouTube video.
You know what, that doesn’t matter, what matters is does the video look good after all the bad takes, mistakes, etc. have been cut out and what you’re left with is the final video with just the best takes.
You’ll be surprised as I was to see how your video will be transformed after editing.
I’ve now recorded hundreds of videos for 2 YouTube channels as well as a lot of other video content. Laura and our team have easily recorded over 1,000 videos.
We currently have 5 YouTube channels that we’ve grown totaling close to 900,000 subscribers and millions of views.
We’ve also helped over 200 people launch their YouTube channels in Spanish.
