You will not believe what I have for you this week. Nav BK, a Youtube veteran, guru and creator of the Absolute Motivation channel chats me up about making the most of my personal brand and platform, no matter which one it is.
We discuss the quality of content, the quantity of videos, how to monetize and sending the right message on your perfect Youtube channel. We also touch on using your social intuition as a marketing tool, moving on up to using a production company and how to diffuse negative comments from big, nasty trolls.
