Do You Need to Use Hashtags?

Have you ever wondered why some people use #hashtags, and some people don't?


I posted something about this subject a while back, but I decided to post a slightly shorter version that gets right to the point.

Simply stated, if you don't have a lot of followers, very few people will see your posts on social media. When you add a hashtag to your post, you will not only reach your small number of followers, but you'll also reach anyone who is specifically searching for posts with that hashtag.

Depending on the hashtag, it would potentially reach quite a lot more people.

YouTube Needs a Dynamic Bumper Feature

YouTube should have a way for creators to dynamically insert bumpers before and after our clips.


Just about everyone who posts videos to YouTube on a regular basis inserts some sort of bumper at the end of each clip where they talk a bit about their channel, and how to find their web site or how to subscribe or follow them on social media. This is often called a Bumper or End Card.

As it stands right now, the only way to create a Bumper or End Card is to make it part of the video itself, so whatever you post will be forever linked to the specific video it was attached to.

The trouble with that is the information in the Bumper may become outdated, but since its part of the video itself, it can't be changed. So if your website changes, or you get a new social media account,... [More]

REAL YouTube Age Ratings?

Why doesn't YouTube have a REAL Age Rating System?


YouTube has exactly 2 ratings. If you check a box that says "Age Restricted" when you upload your video, it's considered for adults, otherwise, it's not. That's not enough.

Very few people check the "Age Restricted" box because it turns off monetization, so there are literally billions of videos online that are not suitable for children, and there is no way for parents to filter them out.

YouTube needs a REAL ratings system that's similar to TV, Games and Movies, that let people know exactly what to expect BEFORE they play a video.

If you've ever been unable to post comments on YouTube because of the error message "Comment Failed to Post", this is what to do.


There's a bug in YouTube that pops up every now and then that prevents people from posting comments. Although it will let you type in your comment, you can't post it. All you see is a little red sentence that says "Comment Failed to Post.". It doesn't tell you why, or offer any help whatsoever.

The first few times I saw the message, I just gave up and tried again later and it worked, so I just assumed it was a connection problem. As the message kept coming up I decided to do some research and all I could find were a bunch of videos from frustrated people who were just as confused as me, and in some cases they assumed they were being censored bec...

The TRUTH About Earning Money on YouTube

People often ask me if I can teach them how to make money on YouTube.


The good news is that you can actually earn money on YouTube. The bad news is that very few people earn more than a few dollars.

As a rule of thumb, you can earn about $1 or so for each 1,000 views, which means that if you get 10,000 views, you'll earn about $10.


So, if you do the math, for you to quit your day job, you need to get about 1,000 views for each dollar you need to earn each day. Want to earn $500 per day? That translates into getting 500,000 views of your videos... each day. Bottom line: Don't quit your day job unless you've got a LOT of subscribers... AND some kick ass videos.

You should keep in mind the last word of the previous paragraph... "Videos", plural, which means that e... [More]

The Power of the Back Catalog

A lot of aspiring YouTube creators give up too soon because their audience is too small.


Creating a new YouTube channel isn't easy. You need to have the courage to consistently produce quality content, even though there's a strong chance nobody will see it. Yes, I mean NOBODY.

Each day, millions of new videos are uploaded to YouTube, which means that when a new video goes up, there's virtually no chance it will be featured or suggested to potential viewers. There's a lot of competition out there, and YouTube isn't going to promote a video from an unknown channel, so even if you've put your heart and soul into your first videos, there's very little chance they will reach anyone outside your friends and family.

Unfortunately, this is why so many YouTube creators give up s... [More]

Behind The Scenes: Green Screen Tips

People often ask me about the background in my YouTube videos. Here's how it's done.


Since I get so many comments on my YouTube channel asking me if I've actually recorded my vlogs on the set of Star Trek, Seinfeld, or The Brady Bunch, I'd like officially admit that I use a green screen.

Of course, some of the backgrounds I use are pretty obviously fake, such as inside the Millennium Falcon, others like the living room from "Risky Business" look pretty realistic, so for the record, even those are fake too.

So here's a quick look behind the scenes, along with some simple tips. I'll be posting a more detailed video showing exactly how it's done at a later date.

Here's a quick way YouTube Creators can organize multiple clips without creating separate files for each take.


When I first started creating YouTube videos, one of the hardest things was trying to organize my footage. This is particularly useful when all your clips look the same in the thumbnail, and you're looking for a specific clip.

Whether you're trying to shoot a bunch of daily videos like I do, or you simply want to make one video with a lot of separate clips, it's important that you at least create some kind of numbered shot list, so that you at least know the sequence of your clips. In my case, I go one extra step, as you can see in the video, by holding up cards with large numbers written on them to match the shot list.

This isn't too different from what movie ma... [More]
