Hey, Thrivers. I’m Sara Nguyen, creator of the Thriving Creator Academy, and I’m here to help you go from stuck and overwhelmed to becoming a confident, profitable, and thriving YouTube creator. Join me here each week for honest conversations about what it really takes to be a successful YouTube creator.
Without compromising your creativity, sacrificing cheeky drinks with the people you love or downtime for yourself. You’ll hear about the hard lessons I’ve gone through so you can avoid making the same slow and costly mistakes on your journey.
As well as my secret weapons to help you dig deep and do the work it takes. I’m honoured and grateful to have this opportunity to share this together with you. Right here, on the Thriving Creator Podcast. I’m glad you’re here. Let’s get started.
I want to have a YouTube channel that I’m proud of, and that helps me thrive. I hear this from so many people who want to start their own YouTube channels, especially those who are coaches, creators, and consultants.
The desire to have YouTube as a platform to reach their audience and grow their business is real. But where do you start when it comes to creating a thriving YouTube channel? How do you make it all work?
Let’s break down the steps. Step one, get committed. Get your systems in place. Many students often ask me, how do you make time? And like many of my students, you may have big commitments, like a job, taking care of family members or things that require your time and focus that are not YouTube.
And sometimes it may feel like there just isn’t enough time. But if you want to leverage YouTube, you need to put systems in place that help you carve more time to focus on it.
I found that when I got committed to the platform and implemented a system, that was when I was able to make continuous small improvements. It was these small improvements that accumulated and eventually moved the needle.
Step two. Next, I looked for ways I could get my YouTube system working for me. This meant designing a business that took a view from YouTube into my sales mechanism. And having something to offer that they could buy. Once they were in, I could nurture and sell.
And the more content I created, the more people I can reach. Let me break that down, because this part is really important. I had a strategy to take people from viewers on YouTube to be buyers of what I had to sell.
I had a system that automated part of this process. I automated a way to help people. I also had an automated way to get back some time so I could spend half of my extra time with my family and the other half looking for more ways to make a big impact with my people.
If you’re clear on your mission, your next step is to get your YouTube framework in place. Are there more steps after this? Of course there are. YouTube framework will give you the ability to leverage your YouTube videos and sell again and again, and again.
Not to mention, if you are already on YouTube and you don’t have a proper system in place, you’re probably making more work for yourself by duplicating parts of the video creation process that don’t need to be double handled.
You’re probably losing time doing YouTube inefficiently. You’re probably not leveraging your viewers and your audience as much as you could be. You’re probably not making the amount of sales you could be.
You’re probably not giving yourself the financial safety net so you can step away from the computer while still making sales. And you’re probably losing loads of money, leaving it on the table without a holistic view of YouTube.
