Seth Godin’s WordPress Blog is Live!

Mastermind marketer Seth Godin’s new WordPress blog went live this month and as such I thought it would be a great opportunity to stay on top of everything he’s posting – and more importantly stay on top of all the latest marketing trends and insights as they are constantly changing. In the video below I briefly cover Seth’s thoughts from his first blog post on his new site, and I plan to post a new video every few weeks with an update/recap on his latest insights.

Trello: The Ultimate Organizational Tool for Creators

Trello is my absolute favorite organizational tool. In the video below, I walk through a dummy board that a YouTuber or creative might use to stay organized and on top of all of their content. This tool is great for anyone – and Trello isn’t a sponsor, I just love their platform.

The Best App to Preview Your Instagram Profile

I’ve seen a lot of people talking about ways they preview their Instagram profile with photos before they actually add them to the app. Unfortunately, a lot of people are doing it the hard way – either through Photoshop or using some clunky tool to do what should be super simple. Instead of the frustration, check out Preview for Instagram.

How to Be Personable on YouTube

If there’s one secret to success for YouTube creators, it’s their ability to be personable and connect with their audience. In this video I chat briefly about how to be personable / relatable / a human on YouTube.

Review: Epidemic Sound for YouTube – Is it worth it?

Epidemic Sound is a music licensing company based in Sweden and they are extremely popular with YouTubers who need great music in their videos. I’ve been using them since Day 1 and wanted to share my thoughts on the platform. Is Epidemic Sound worth it? How’s the content? Let’s take a look!

Auto-Focusing on the Canon T3i?

If you own the Canon T3i and want to use it for vlogging – good luck. It’s a great crop sensor DSLR even to this day, but its capabilities on the video side are lacking. The camera doesn’t have true auto-focusing, but there’s sort of one way around that. Check out my latest video below to see the re-focusing capabilities on the T3i during live shooting.
