Ms Evancich:  This is the Small Business Big Marketing show with Tim Reid and Luke Moulton.  This show is lovingly put together for small business owners by small business owners to get practical ideas about attracting more customers more often.  So, if you're serious about building your business strap in for the ride.  Now, here's your hosts, Tim and Luke.

Tim:  Lukey, Lukey, Lukey.  Look at you.

Luke:  How are you, Timbo?

Tim:  Oh, yes, good thank you, Luke.  How are you?

Luke:  Very well thanks, mate.

Tim:  Very very serious, like given I'm trying to sort of build the energy and you're bringing it one down.

Luke:  Bringing it down.  No, I'm sorry.  Sorry, mate.  I had a big day yesterday.  I had a long day ...

Tim:  I know you did.

Luke:  ... so I will try to keep the energy up.

Tim:  I know you did.  And it's good, you've ... have you blow waved your hair?

Luke:  Something like that.

Tim:  You have, haven't you?

Luke:  And you haven't shaved so ...

Tim:  A little quaff.

Luke:  ... we're even.

Tim:  Correct.  Correct.  Lukey and listeners, welcome back to Small Business Big Marketing the place where you, the small business owner, and if you're not a small business owner, turn off.  Yeah, we'll get them to turn off.  What do you reckon?

Luke:  Don't turn off.

Tim:  No, no, don't turn off.

Luke:  You might be a marketing manager, you might be someone looking for inspiration.

Tim:  Yeah, yeah.  Might be a chemist.

Luke:  You might be a chemist.

Tim:  Anyone who needs to stay in contact with their customers.

Luke:  Hopefully a legal chemist.

Tim:  An illegal chemist?

Luke:  A legal, not illegal.

Tim:  Absolutely, absolutely.  As opposed to ...

Luke:  Not a backyard ...

Tim:  No.  Like an industrial chemist.

Luke:  ... meth lab chemist.  We don't want any of those.

Tim:  Right, okay.  And so a place to come, small business owners, to learn how to do marketing that works, really.

Luke:  Correct.  And that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, Timbo.

Tim:  Cost an arm and a leg.

Luke:  We've got ...

Tim:  And ...

Luke:  We've actually got a user ... a user.  We've got a list ...

Tim:  Speaking of meth labs.

Luke:  A listener question that we're going to address ...

Tim:  Oh, Lukey.

Luke:  ... towards the end of the show.

Tim:  Lukey, this listener question is from Martin Leow, I don't know how to pronounce that.  It brought a tear to my eye.

Luke:  It did.

Tim:  It really touched a nerve.  And so it's a big question and Martin is clearly in a little bit of strife with his business and by God we're going to pull him out of it, Luke.

Luke:  We're going to try.

Tim:  We are going to pull him out.  Hey, Lukey?

Luke:  Timbo.

Tim:  What is on your mind?

Luke:  What is on my mind, I have one big thing on my mind actually, Timbo.

Tim:  Yep, yep.

Luke:  Going through our stats of recent ...

Tim:  Luke, Luke.

SBBM #19 – Guerrilla Marketing, Blogging & Building Credibility

Ms Evancich:  This is the Small Business Big Marketing show with Tim Reid and Luke Moulton.  This show is lovingly put together for small business owners by small business owners to get practical ideas about attracting more customers more often.  So, if you’re serious about building your business strap in for the ride.  Now, here’s your hosts, Tim and Luke.

Tim:  Lukey, Lukey, Lukey.

Luke:  How are you, Timbo?

Tim:  Mate, isn’t it great to be back?

Luke:  It sure is.  It feels like it’s been a while.

Tim:  It has.  Welcome back, listeners, to Small Business Big Marketing where we simplify marketing, I think, Luke.

Luke:  Yes, we do.

Tim:  We used to say demystify.  I like simplify.

Luke:  Yeah, definitely.

Tim:  Because we’re simple blokes.

Luke:  We are.  Simple blokes, simple needs.

Tim:  One simpler than the other.

Luke:  Let’s not say who.  Timbo, what have you been up to?

Tim:  Mate, lots, lots.  This is a show, listeners, before we get stuck in, today’s show is all about a bit of a rambling between Lukey and myself as opposed to listening to someone who’s actually got something really intelligent to say about small business marketing.

Luke:  Yeah.  We’re not in the studio today but we do have some exciting guests coming up in a couple of weeks’ time.

Tim:  Correct.  Can we say where we are?

Luke:  We can, yeah.  We’re just at my …

Tim:  Luke …

Luke:  My home.

Tim:  Your kitchen.

Luke:  My kitchen, that’s right.

Tim:  Which is kind of cool, you know, because … I mean, we are lucky enough to do this show normally in a studio.

Luke:  Yep.

Tim:  But I was presenting at a conference yesterday and was talking … telling people about podcasting as a marketing tool and the fact is, you know, like here we are, we are in a kitchen, on the bench, being able to …

Luke:  Got a laptop and a microphone.

Tim:  A lappy and a mic.

Luke:  Yeah.

Tim:  You know, and a stopwatch to stop me from rattling on too much.

Luke:  Yeah.

Tim:  But that’s the thing, you know, like small business owners, listeners around the world, you can do it.

Luke:  That’s right.

Tim:  You can have your own show.

Luke:  It’s all … it’s just all about consistency and getting something out there.

Tim:  Hey, Lukey?

Luke:  Timbo.

Tim:  Went to TED last week.

Luke:  TED in Sydney, how did it go?

Tim:  TEDx they call it.

Luke:  Yep.

Tim:  Which is not the pornographic version of TED, it’s just the light version of TED.  So for listeners who don’t know what TED is, I think TED stands for, and I’m going to get this wrong, something like Technology, Environment and Design.

Luke:  Yep.

Tim:  If you haven’t been to ted.com, listeners, go.  It’s just full of great interviews from people around the world.  Their tagline is ideas worth sharing.

Luke:  Yep.

Tim:  And basically each listener gets 20 minutes on the TED stage, which is apparently an absolute privilege to be on the TED stage.  They only happen in Oxford and Cupertino, or somewhere like that.

SBBM #23: Meet Yiying, The Twitter Fail Whale Designer  

Imagine being responsible for designing one of the world's most famous online branding...and being paid less than five bucks for the privilege!

Tim:  Lukey, Lukey, Lukey.  What is that sound I hear?

Luke:  Well that's right.  That's right, Timbo, I have had a lovely gorgeous daughter about a week and a half ago.

Tim:  Probably you haven't.  Your wife might have.

Luke:  Yes, well she did do all the hard work.

Tim:  Yep, correct.  Correct.  Congratulations, mate.

Luke:  Thanks, mate.

Tim:  Gee, noisy child, hey, all that crying ...

Luke:  No, she's ...

Tim:  ... just quiet it down a bit.

Luke:  She's been an absolute angel so far.

Tim:  Has she?

Luke:  Yeah.

Tim:  Has she?  A marketer to be, do you think?  Has she got the glint in her eye?

Luke:  Yeah, look, she's not talking yet so it's a little too early to tell.

Tim:  Yeah, it is hard, yeah.  But often you can tell, a bit of gut ... gut instinct.

Luke:  Yeah.

Tim:  Gut feel, you know, like ...

Luke:  Yeah.

Tim:  ... look at her and go, yep, cut out ... cut out for marketing, hey.

Luke:  I think we'll have to wait and see on that one, Timbo, but ...

Tim:  Is she wearing the big brands?  I mean, you've got ... I know you've got a ... what's the stroller you've got?

Luke:  Oh, I can't remember the brand.

Tim:  Yeah, a McLaren.

Luke:  But I tell you what ...

Tim:  McLaren.

Luke:  ... it's got more bells and whistles than my car that pram.

Tim:  Mate, that ... that stroller would win a Formula 1 race.

Luke:  Yep, yep.  No, she's currently wearing Bonds.

Tim:  Oh, yep.

Luke:  Good Australian brand.

Tim:  Yeah, yeah, good.

Luke:  Taken overseas now and made in China.  But anyway.

Tim:  Okay, okay, that's fairly ...

Luke:  (1:28).

Tim:  Fairly intellectual of you to start the show.  Hey, listeners, congratulations to Lukey and his lovely wife Kim and welcome to the world little baby Isabella.

Luke:  Isabella.

Tim:  Great name.

Luke:  Thank you very much.

Tim:  Great name.  So it's ... it's just lovely to have an additional part to the Small Business Big Marketing family.  Is she on Twitter yet?

Luke:  No.

Tim:  Or LinkedIn?

Luke:  No.  I'd better go and register all her social media and give it to her as her week two birthday present.

Tim:  Yeah, yeah.

Luke:  Yes.

Tim:  I must get ... I must get LinkedIn with her.  And people of that age, what is she, a week and a half, what social media are they into, is it ...

Tim Ferriss and Ben Greenfield Delve Into Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers.  

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/titans For the last two years, my guest on today's show has interviewed more than 200 world-class performers, ranging from super celebs like Jamie Foxx and Arnold Schwarzenegger to professional athletes and icons of powerlifting, gymnastics, surfing and beyond, to legendary Special Operations commanders and black-market biochemists. For many of his guests, this is the first time they’ve agreed to a two-to-three-hour interview, and this unusual depth has helped him create a massive collection of tools, tactics, and ‘inside baseball’ you won’t find anywhere else.  If you hadn't yet guessed, my guest is Tim Ferriss, and just this week, Tim has taken his notebook of high-leverage tools that he has vetted, explored, and applied to his own life, and published it for the entire world to delve into - all in the form of a nearly 700 page book that could probably double as a self-defense weapon. The name of the book, entitled Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers, delves into the dozens of tactics and philosophies Tim has picked up from his guests and used successfully in high-stakes negotiations, high-risk environments, and large business dealings, saving him millions of dollars and years of wasted effort and frustration. In this episode, I put Tim in the hotseat as we not only discuss his new book Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers, but also go far beyond and delve into difficult, deep questions about Tim's life. During this episode, you'll discover: -How Tim got started in business by creating and selling a smart drug that turned out to be a physical ergogenic performance enhancing aid...[9:55] -The ingredients of Tim's first supplement he created...[12:10] -The biggest "stacks", techniques and biohacks Tim now uses for enhancing cognitive function that he doesn't think he ever would have discovered without having a podcast...[17:50] -The #1 tactic Tim eventually used to heal himself of Lyme disease...[20:55] -What Tim's workstation looks like, and how he manages to write massive books while maintaining fitness in his work environment...[43:15] -The exact contents of Tim's "six-piece gym in a bag"...[50:20] -Why Tim is convinced that training like a gymnast is one of the best way you can sculpt an amazing body...[56:54]   - The major fitness, diet and lifestyle modifications Tim has made since starting the podcast that he doesn't think he would have made had he not had a podcast...[65:30] -The 17 absurd questions Tim asks himself to change his life and solve problems...[66:20] -What Tim has implemented lately to enhance his anti-aging and longevity (and his thoughts on anti-aging supplements)...[75:30] -The dead inventor Tim would want to bring back to life and have on his podcast (and the questions he would ask)...[85:35] -Why Tim hasn't created a "brand"...[88:55] -And much more!

Tim Mickelson's Background

Tim Grew up in California and is 7 years younger than his brother Phil Mickelson
Like Phil, Tim played for ASU, winning a national championship, then went to Oregon State to finish his college career
He played mini tour golf for a brief period, making it to the 2nd stage of Q-School
He took a position at San Diego State, then became the Head coach at USD (University of San Diego)
After 8 years at USD, he was named the head coach at ASU
In his soon to be 5th year, Tim has taken the team from being ranked #85 to as high as #2 last year, and looking forward to a very promising year ahead.

Highlights from this Episode

Tim shares his background as a player, a coach, and what it was like growing up in the Mickelson household
We discuss what it takes for a kid to even be looked at as a recruit for a program like ASU
Tim highlights the on and of course characteristics that they look for in the young men they recruit
Fitness has become such a big part of the game these days.  The team does golf specific workouts very regularly to keep them in shape and prepared for the season.
With such an individualized sport, it's hard to keep a team atmosphere, but Tim looks at himself much like a baseball manager.
It's not his role to work on a kid's swing, but more his job to find out where his weaknesses are in his game, so he can practice more efficiently
Tim walks us through their practice schedule and what the life of the young golfer looks like at this level
He relates what they do to you and your game.  He expresses several ways to make your practie more efficient
Tim shares a great story about him and Phil

CaddyShack or Happy Gilmore?
Caddyshack
Tim's Favorite Memory of Beating His Brother Phil on the Course:
Playing a round at the Grand in San Diego, he was -10 after 12 holes.  He was beating Phil and Phil currently had the course record at -9.  Although he beat him that day, Phil was still able to get in Tim's head on the back nine, and Tim finished with a -8, two shots shy of beating Phil's record.
What are you excited about in your near future?
ASU has a pretty stellar line-up going into the 2015-2016 year.  They have 3 players that averaged less than 70 strokes in competitive rounds last year, which is pretty amazing.

Tim:  Lukey, Lukey, Lukey.  Welcome back to Small Business Big Marketing.

Luke:  Dot com.

Tim:  Dot com.  Say hello listeners.

Luke:  Hello listeners.  How are you going?

Tim:  Hello.  Hey, don't forget this is the show that ... we basically make marketing simple, Luke, I would say.  Because that's our little kind of ...

Luke:  We certainly do.

Tim:  ... tagline.

Luke:  And we try to give people tips to essentially bootstrap their marketing, Timbo.

Tim:  I don't think we could make marketing difficult.  We're not that smart.

Luke:  No.

Tim:  You know.  I've actually been listening to a great podcast that is called Six Pixels of Separation.  And they ... well they are a little bit of ... they're the ... they're the marketer's marketer.

Luke:  Yep.

Tim:  Yeah, those guys.  So if you want a bit more ... if you want a bit more intellectual marketing beyond Small Business Big Marketing head over to that.  Why did we promote them, Luke?  No, they deserve it.  You've got to share it around.  There's enough to go around, isn't there?

Luke:  Correct.

Tim:  Lukey, what's on your mind?

Luke:  Timbo, I've actually been working on doing a bit of a campaign for Flippa because we're turning one, actually it's our first birthday.

Tim:  Oh, beautiful.

Luke:  So and, you know, maybe there's a bit of a tip in that, you know ...

Tim:  I hope so.  I hope so.  I hope it's not a promo.

Luke:  No.  Celebration your successes, I think.

Tim:  Yeah, I agree.  Yep.

Luke:  And, you know, no one else is going to turn around and congratulate you on one year.

Tim:  Yeah, yeah.

Luke:  So congratulate yourself.

Tim:  Make it valuable to the client though, not as a navel gazing exercise.

Luke:  Don't worry, we are indeed.

Tim:  Yeah, yeah.  I think it's ...

Luke:  We're actually giving away ... going to be giving away some credits, so.

Tim:  That's a good idea.  And in fact if you've won an award, celebrate that on your packaging or your website.

Luke:  Yep.

Tim:  And if you haven't won an award, enter an award.  Enter something that gets you an award.  Because it is an important ... it's an important thing to be able to share.

Luke:  Timbo, we're giving away more tips and we said there'd only be ...

Tim:  I know.  I know.  This is the second part of a two part show, listeners, that we started last week and it's ... but you didn't ask me what's on my mind.

Luke:  Timbo, what's on your mind?

Tim:  I've started blogging again on SmallBusinessBigMarketing.com.

Luke:  Look out.

Tim:  Yep, look out, because there it is.  Little blogs.  Little ... little ... I was going to say nuggets, but these are nuggets.  But just little stuff that's on my mind.  When I see ... when I see marketing that really disappoints me or really excites me I'll ju...

[Bonus] - Tim Ferriss: [Part 2] Where Are You Not Replaceable?  

I was very late and I was very upset at myself. I had flown three thousand miles. I moved into an Airbnb right next to where Tim was staying. I had written thousands of notes on ripped pieces of paper and stuck them all throughout the book. I had notes written up and around all the margins. I listened to dozens of his podcasts. And I've known him for years. All morning I had jotted down possible questions. And I was late to meet Tim for our podcast. Because the west coast is three hours a way in time travel from the east coast. That's how stupid I am. I rushed over and he was waiting. Tim follows his own advice. He was relaxed. No problems. I apologized, we spoke for awhile, and then started the podcast. Three hours later...not even close to done but we stopped. I want to be a better person in life. I want to be healthier. I want to be more creative. I want to find what is hidden inside of me, dig around, unleash it. I want to find the strength to do that. It's not an easy to thing to do. To scrape the dirt and dust that collects inside of ourselves. To explore. To wander. To create. Tim's book, "Tools of the Titans" is a guidebook for doing the above. And I had a lot of questions. ---- A few months after I started my podcast in 2014, Tim wrote me and said, "Can I call you and ask you some questions about podcasting". I said sure and he called and we talked for quite awhile. He called many podcasters during this period. Then he started his own podcast. He DOMINATED. All of his guests were amazing. He told me he was getting so much great advice from his guests it was overwhelming. The aftermath of a hailstorm where everything is just glowing and even the air you breathe seems cleansed. But that lasts only a short time until the atmosphere is filled with the everyday pollution of life. So he took a month off, re-listened to all his podcasts, and just for his own use he wrote down the advice he was hearing. "But it was too much," he told me. "I kept writing. It was clearly a book." It's not like any other book he's written. He steps out of the way in many cases, and let's these super-achievers do the talking. He curates their thoughts. They had found the hidden gems inside themselves, and long ago brought them up to share with the world to achieve their successes, and now they documented them with Tim. That's why I flew 3000 miles. I wanted the gems. I wanted answers. ---- I've had so many ups and downs I try to quantify what works on the way up. What goes wrong on the way down. I try to quantify: what are the steps for reinvention? I wonder: what makes someone break out of mediocrity? About seven months ago I threw out all of my belongings. I gave away or donated to the library about 3000 books. All of my books now are on my kindle. None of the answers were in my things. But now I have one physical book. Tim's. And I plan to keep it. Here are ten things (among many) I learned from the book and from our podcast: "ALL I HAVE TO DO IS SHOW UP" I'm impressed how Tim did his work before starting a podcast. Starting something new is not about taking risks. Jumping into the unknown, getting out of the comfort zone, doing something scary. It's not about bravery. It's the exact opposite. You can only do so many "new" things in life. So do the work beforehand. He called people up. He learned the craft as much as he could. He talked to people ranging from me to people at Apple. He had initial guests lined up. He had a huge launch. And he told me the other day that he is persistent at getting his guests. One recent guest, he told me, took two years to book. Which was refreshing for me to hear since it often takes me that long or longer to book many guests. Comedian Whitney Cummings told him: "My work is not done on the night of a big standup special. My work was done three months ago. All I have do is show up." Even though I was late for our podcast, I'm glad I showed up. - DOING IS EVERYTHING Derek Sivers told him, "If all we needed was more information, then everyone would be a billionaire with perfect abs." It's the DOING that's difficult. I asked Tim: "there's 700 pages of advice here. How can anyone follow everything? How do you know what will work for you?" Just pick a few things. Pick what resonates with you. Start slowly. It doesn't matter what you do. Just start DO-ing. Dan Ariely once told me something similar. "If you say sorry to someone, even if you don't mean it, even if THEY KNOW you don't mean it, then you still have a better relationship with them a year later compared with people who never say sorry." DOING > THINKING. - BLEED From Morgan Spurlock, the director of "Supersize Me" and many other great documentaries. "Don't be afraid to show your scars". This is not a book about suicide. But Tim shares the time he was considering it. This is not a book about anxiety or depression. But Tim shares his battles with those demons. This book is not just a book of advice, it's a book of Tim's own journey as he tries to make his life better. In the section with Tony Robbins, Tony talks about how he wakes up every morning and writes about what he is anxious about. I find this is very helpful. Instead of complaining to the outside world, you reveal to your inside world what it is you are scared of. When I was talking to Susan David in another podcast, she told me how if you write down your vulnerabilities just ONCE for 20 minutes, then even up to six months later the experimental group showed less signs of stress than the control group. Be vulnerable, write down three anxieties a day. I can't be true to others if I'm not true to myself. - MORNING PAGES Julia Cameron writes about this in the classic book, "The Artists Way". Brian Koppelman, writer of Rounders, Ocean's 13, Billions, etc swears by this technique for increasing his creativity. Many of Tim's guests say the same thing. What are morning pages? Sit down in the morning, write in longhand three pages of garbage without stopping. This uncages the anxious "monkey mind" and puts it on the page. It unleashes any writer's block because you have permission to write total nonsense. It frees the mind for the creativity it needs to do that day. - THE DOUBLE THREAT GUIDE TO BEING SUCCESSFUL When Tim spoke to Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, Scott told him: "I always advise young people to become good public speakers". Anyone can do that, he says, with practice. "Suddenly you're in charge or maybe you are starting your own company. Capitalism rewards things that are both rare and valuable." If you are good at public speaking and one other skill, you make yourself more rare and valuable. Before Warren Buffett made one dime of money, he took a Dale Carnegie course on public speaking. After that, he made a dime of money. Or two. - DON'T BE AFRAID TO DO SOMETHING YOU'RE NOT QUALIFIED TO DO Dan Carlin, host of the super-podcast "Hardcore History" told Tim this. Dan was not a historian, didn't have a PhD, but was fascinated by history. His mother(!) told him, "why don't you do a podcast about the stories you tell here at the dinner table." He told his mother, but I don't have a doctorate." His mother said, "I didn't realize you had to have a doctorate to tell stories". And now he has the most popular history-based podcast on the planet. Kamal Ravikant, a past and future guest on my own podcast, told Tim, "If I only did things I was qualified for I'd be pushing a broom somewhere." Schools, corporations, government, parents, friends, want to put you in their own boxes. They have a menu for you, with only very limited choices today. But if you don't choose your own themes in life, then someone else will do the choosing for you and the results won't be as good. - THE THOUSAND TRUE FAN THEORY....EXPANDED Kevin Kelly tells tim, "Success need not be complicated. Just start with making 1000 people extremely extremely happy," Three ideas from this: Kevin's idea is that if they are true super fans, you will be able to build a product, charge for it, and they will pay, making you a living. Build a product that makes their lives better. Second idea: Have direct contact with your fans. This gets rid of all the middlemen and turns your relationships into a tribe. Third idea: Not every fan is a super fan. But the super fans will help you communicate with the other people who would be receptive to your message. The key here being: have an important and unique message. One that helps people. One that is a vision that people can believe in. Start small. Focus on the people who really care about what you are doing. As Seth Godin even says, "Find Ten" if you have to. Because if t's a good idea then ten will tell ten who will tell ten. Book recommendation from this chapter: "Small Giants" by Bo Burlingham, about companies that choose to be the best rather than the biggest. - ASK DUMB QUESTIONS This is a common theme throughout the book. Tony Robbins tells Tim, "We are the quality of the questions we ask." And both Alex Blumberg (super podcaster) and Malcolm Gladwell talk about the importance of asking dumb questions. People sometimes criticize me for interrupting guests on my podcasts. I get it. But the reality is: if I don't understand something during the podcast, then when else will I get the chance to understand. Alex Blumberg gives some good ways to start dumb questions: "Tell me about a time when..." "Tell me about the day when..." "What were the exact steps that got you to...." "Describe the conversation when.

More About This Show The Social Media Marketing podcast is an on-demand talk radio show from Social Media Examiner. It's designed to help busy marketers and business owners discover what works with social media marketing. In this episode I interview Tim Schmoyer, the author of 30 Days to a Better YouTube Channel and The Secret to Building Your YouTube Audience. His site, videocreators.com helps people spread their message via video. Tim explores how to create a community with YouTube. You'll discover how to make videos that will engage your viewers and keep them watching. Share your feedback, read the show notes and get the links mentioned in this episode below. Listen Now You can also subscribe via iTunes, RSS, or Stitcher. How to subscribe/review on iPhone. Here are some of the things you'll discover in this show: YouTube Community Development How Tim got involved with YouTube Tim explains how one night in grad school (March 2, 2006), he was bored at home, and decided to check out YouTube. After seeing what was on there, he decided to upload his first video. It was a quick, 30-second video of him talking to the camera. He had no idea where that first experience would lead. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sbC_K0cCUI As this was pre-Facebook, Tim says he and his girlfriend at the time made videos to show their friends and family what they were up to. They made videos of their dates, engagement and wedding, as well as when they moved, had kids and so on. Tim believes they made about 1,000 videos just sharing their story. It started as a way to communicate with family and friends. Along the way, other people started watching. Around 2009, Tim reached out to Mark Robertson, ReelSEO, and YouTube personality Kevin Nalty, and asked them why certain things did and did not work on YouTube. When they didn't know the answers, Tim decided to figure it out himself. He said he'd report back to them what he learned. Tim began having conversations with people who were trying to figure out the same things about YouTube and audience growth. That was the start of him turning YouTube into his business. A while later, Tim reached out to Mark Robertson again with constructive feedback. Tim told Mark that while he had a great website about video, there was nothing being done with online video. Tim ended up taking over Mark's YouTube channel, and trained the site's viewers how to master YouTube as a platform for audience development. After a few years, Tim started working full time for an animation studio to do audience development for their web series. A year later, after he had grown it to almost 100,000 subscribers, Tim's job was eliminated. However, they paid him full-time for six months to get his own business started. In February 2013, Tim launched his YouTube channel, called Video Creators. By the end of six months, it was his full-time income. Video Creators has three series on it. Every Tuesday, Tim talks about news in the online video industry. Wednesdays, he shares a YouTube tip. Then, on Thursdays he answers a question from his audience. The channel revolves around using online video as a platform to change lives. Without spending any money on promotion, Tim has grown his YouTube channel to over 75,000 subscribers and more than four-million views. He gets tons of interaction and engagement, including about 15,000 comments a month. Listen to the show to learn what YouTube was like in the beginning. Common mistakes with video The biggest mistake Tim sees people make with video is that they treat it like it's the same as television. People new to video (who don't watch YouTube) don't have another frame of reference for how to craft video content. Therefore, they make the same content they would create for television,
