EXACTLY HOW I'D BUILD A SUCCESSFUL YOUTUBE CHANNEL IN 2023 (5 STEPS)
This is exactly what it looks like to build a successful YouTube channel this year. So we're going to reverse engineer it together in this video right now. Howdy, howdy, everyone. Nate here. I have 15 seconds to tell you why this video you see. I made this video so that this year you can finally create something that you own. And in order to do that, I have analyzed thousands of YouTube channels, done countless data reviews both here on channel makers and in my YouTube system, project 24 My team and I have built multiple channels to over ten thousand dollars a month.
And among all of. This I have seen patterns on what works and what doesn't work, which is exactly what I'm going to be sharing with you in this video right now. So pretend you paid me good money to share this with you and don't be afraid to come back and re watch this video as often as you need. So here are the patterns that I have seen. Ok so this is what it looks like behind me. This timeline I've spent considerable amount of time creating to show exactly what it looks like to build a fulltime income Youtube channel this year.
Now I did include the 2 0 here because I shared a similar idea in the past, but a lot of things have changed since then. Now, I've broken this up into phases according to where your channel is. So while you are watching this video, there is a good chance, in fact almost 100 % chance, that your channel is going to fall into one of these phases.
So what I want you to do is pay attention to both where your channel is for what to focus on during any given phase, as well as what to expect coming next. And yes, you have Nate's permission to take notes and or re watch this video as many times as you need. Ok, so the very first thing you're going to see is 3-7 This is what I call the 3-7 phase. Or the starter phase. This comes before anything else in the rest here because this is where we get ourselves onto the YouTube platform.
If you don't have a channel yet and you don't have at least 20 or so videos published on your channel, just get going. One of the best ways that I have found to describe each of these phases is in a single goal. And the phase of 3-7 is to get going. So that once you are on the YouTube platform and you've published a few videos, no matter how awful they are and you know if you've watched other videos on this channel, you know that the 1st 20 or so.
Videos, you're probably just going to throw them away anyway, no matter what they look like. You are on Youtube and you've started publishing. Because the milestones I hope to see from completing this first phase are first, you're going to have a niche on Youtube You've done something you think, OK, I'm going to do gaming videos, or I'm going to do sewing videos or whatever you decide to do. You've chosen some sort of niche by the end of 3-7 here. And the second thing you've done is you've begun publishing, you've gotten past any fear barrier you have of actually publishing.
And the third thing is you're familiar with the Youtube platform and how to. Upload a video and create a YouTube channel. Basic, yes, but we all need it. So for this first phase, there's not much to be said aside from this is where you need to break any of the barriers that you have to starting. If you're watching this and you have not yet started a channel, listen to me closely here.
You need to get going. This is where you break the barrier to starting a YouTube channel, and how you do that is simply selecting 12 to 20 video topics. You don't even know if they'll do good. You don't know how to make thumbnails. You don't know any of those things, but you're selecting those video topics. You're picking up your recording. Guys, and you're saying, hey, here's a video about this and you record the video. You do some simple edits if you even want to.
You could even just do a simple start, stop. You upload to video and you get it published. The next phase is what I call the compass. This is different than all of the rest of these phases because. It's got a compass and it doesn't have a number. That's the only reason. I'm just kidding. You actually treat this phase very differently for a very specific reason. I'll get more to that later on in this video. But what you're doing during this phase is you're understanding where your channel is on Youtube And not only that, but as the name implies, you're creating your own compass for how to direct your channel. And So what you want to do during this phase is create your plan for success on Youtube And it's much more exciting than I just made it sound.
Because if you were to come to me and say, Nate, I need to create the. For my channel, I don't know what I'm doing with my channel. I would say this is perhaps my favorite part because you, my friend, are able to get clarity, which is the goal of this phase and that is get clarity. Now why does this matter so much? Because I have seen far too many channels that meander around or run around like they're a chicken with their heads cut off and they don't know exactly the direction they're heading. If you are feeling similarly, I want you to do this ASAP and I'm going to get into a bit more specifically what that looks like here in a moment.
But I just want you to know there is very specific reason. Why this sequence happens in the way it does? And in fact, this is my YouTube system. It's in my membership program, project 24 in total authenticity. I will be sharing Project 24 with you during this video because I think it's something really awesome. I have seen it help a lot of YouTube channels, and if it's not a fit for you, that is totally fine. Either way, my hope is to give you clarity during this video so you know what to do next. All right, so the skill sets we're focusing on during the compass is getting a clear plan. I call it a channel blueprint for what your channel stands for, as well as all of the.
Content that you're producing on your channel. So that whenever you make a decision of whether or not to produce a piece of content on your channel, you can always refer back to your blueprint and understand, yes, it fits or no, it doesn't fit. In addition, during this phase, we're going to be looking at understanding the niche that we're targeting. You're targeting for your channel very well. You're going to deep dive into what is happening in that industry, so you understand how to speak the language because that's going to allow you to have a constant pool of good video ideas always coming to.
Mind naturally or when you're seeking them out, and because you know the industry so well, you'll already have a pretty good sense of what kinds of videos will do well and what kinds of videos are groundbreaking videos for your space. It's also during this compass phase when we're going to focus on the skill set of understanding taking a third party's perspective on our channel and understanding how to review it and audit your own content, as well as understand how to make your content Evergreen. Meaning whatever content is on your channel, it has the potential to get views indefinitely, permanently into the future, which is. Incredibly powerful.
Now I want you to know that later on in this video, I will be sharing real channel examples so that you can match where your channel is right now to understand what a real channel in a certain phase looks like, so you can understand what to do if you're in that phase. Ok. And as far as milestones for this compass, if you've done this correctly, you've got your niche refined, meaning you already had an idea of what it was over here, but now you know, yeah, this is where I'm targeting. I know exactly what my industry looks like on Youtube I know all the other players.
I know what's happening there. And then based on that, you're able to create what I. Call a channel blueprint, which is a blueprint of what you are doing with your channel. And so anything that isn't on the blueprint you do not do, but everything that is on the blueprint you do really well. The other two milestones you're hitting during this phase is first your understanding how to create a Evergreen framework for all the content on your channel, which means that all of your videos can get views permanently into the future. And you're also understanding you have the self-awareness to understand when something goes wrong on your channel why it went wrong, which by the way if this video is being.
Awful or eye opening to you thus far. I would love if you would boop the like button so it can spread to more people. Thank you for doing that. Now we're back at the blackboard for phase one this, the entire goal of this phase is get implementing everything that we have done to establish clarity in the compass up to this point. It's time to start implementing it. Now I do need to warn you here, there is a danger zone in this first phase, this get implementing phase because here's why.
What I've seen again, these are the patterns I've seen across thousands of Youtube channels. I have seen we start a channel, we get excited. We say, yeah, I'm going to make a YouTube channel, this is awesome. And then we might even get into like OK, yeah, this is exactly what I want to do. I have all these cool ideas for my content and then it comes time to actually implement it and we get overwhelmed.
That is the biggest stopping point during this phase overwhelmed which is why I'm aiming to simplify that for you here at my desk. Ok, now here is where things start to get really interesting, because with the entire goal of this phase being let's get implementing, let's start to really understand and master the language of Youtube This is where we're starting to focus on a few key things, including the skill set of identifying what makes a good video idea in the 1st place versus one that's just not that interesting, or will not do well in search or elsewhere in the browse or suggested algorithms. And that plays heavily on the second. Skill set during this phase, which is making sure that whatever video format you choose matches the video idea that you created.
For a simplified example, it's not always this simple, but if I made a video on this channel called full guide to starting YouTube channel this year and the video was two minutes long, what would you think? Because of course it encompasses more than just the length of the video. It also includes understanding what type of video will deliver that content in the most interesting way for your audience. And then the next skill set we're mastering during this phase is having your publishing pipeline established. This is where you've got several videos under your belt and you're starting to be able to optimize a bit so you're not spending so much darn time setting up your camera or you're lighting, etc.
Like I did on this video. I just. But really, having this skill set allows you to be much more efficient with your production of your videos because now we're starting to see some interesting results. This is where you start to not only have an idea of what you're doing, but you start heading that direction. It's an awesome feeling, and because you've been implementing and practicing these things, you're starting to.
Early understanding of what a winning video idea is for your audience and your channel, which leads to you having an established publishing pipeline. It's starting to become like clockwork and the result of that is you're going to start seeing some early growth on your channel, which is just super exciting. Now I wanted to note here I didn't put specific numbers on almost anywhere on this as far as channel growth, mostly because different channels, different audiences perform very differently and your channel will perform differently than the next person's channel. In fact, that was one of the biggest challenges.
I had when coming up with the YouTube system because previous iterations look like exactly 60 steps to follow, but the reality turned out to be much different and this ended up being much better. And that takes us to this next phase, which is exciting to me because I get to start sharing real examples on this phase. Here in this video you see the whole goal of phase two is to get what I call proof of concept for your channel. What I mean by that is get content, a library of content, the types of content for the audience that you want to target, the two of those. Audience and your content types are matched during this phase.
If you are struggling indefinitely and you feel like your channel is stuck, it's because you do not have proof of concept. And that doesn't matter if you have a small under a thousand subscriber channel or if you've been doing it for a while and you're just feeling stagnated, you don't have proof of concept for the next level of growth yet. All right. It's during this phase that we really start understanding these key skill sets, the first being audience interaction. Because we're early in the stage of understanding what makes an interesting or helpful or entertaining video for our audience interaction will be critical during this part. So during this phase, we're focusing on the most effective ways to communicate and understanding filtering between good feedback and useless feedback.
We're also finally ready during this phase to start understanding advanced title and thumbnail production for our videos. This is one of my favorite parts because up to this point, if I'm honest, titles and thumbnails do not sink in, at least not to the degree that we can get them to during this phase. We're also focusing during this phase on session duration. It is big during this phase.
Anything we can do to get your audience on YouTube longer by watching multiple videos or by directing them to additional videos, or by getting them to watch an entire playlist of videos, anything we can do there, we are definitely focusing on those strategies here because it is critical for the algorithm. Them to understand where your audience is based on time spent as well as subscribers gained. And the other interesting scales that we're going to focus on during this phase is early monetization. Now I say early monetization mostly because we're going to focus much more on that later on, but there are some early things that we can start doing to start getting those small wins.
So now like I said, I wanted to share some real examples, some real channels that are in this phase. They're all part of Project 24 And yes, I did ask them if I could share this publicly, but no, they did not know what I was going to say. So I'm going to answer the. Question will Nate, what should I focus on right now with each of these channels or if your channel is in this same phase, listen up first channel is Project 24 member Cecil Yadro. She's doing really well in the art space, specifically in the gouche painting space.
I apologize if I'm pronouncing that wrong, and what she's doing well is some good early monetization factors in place. If I look at the description, there's already some resources and an art school in place. However, when I look at the channel as a whole, the primary thing I would be focusing on would be subscribability, meaning the core element. That make an audience watch one video and then the next video and then the next video which is what I was referring to with that session duration. This channel so far has views that are all over the place which signifies to me that they don't necessarily have yet an ever growing subscribability factor or meaning the audience is growing overtime and each video is consistently getting more and more views and on to the next channel is maximum career.
This channel is all about as it sounds finding your ideal career. Now I like that this channel has a clear theme of work and life and finding your ideal career. However the primary issue with. This is the videos are extremely short, but there is tons of Dead Space in the editing itself. So even for a 3 minute video, there's only about a minute and a half of actual content needs to be fixed. And now let's talk results for phase two here. It is not unlikely if you fully work this and you master this phase, for you to be accepted to the YouTube partner program this early on, it doesn't take longer than this right here you can be in the partner program.
That's not a promise, obviously, but most of the time, if done correctly, I see it happening about this phase. Now, in addition to that, you've mastered what I would call most of the key skill sets of YouTube channels. Meaning you're pretty darn good at titles, you're pretty darn good at thumbnails. You know how to upload, you know how to write a description. You've reached a really good level of competency at this point.
You're always going to be improving going forward, but at this point you feel competent. You've also established consistency for your content. Now, whatever that consistency looks like for you, how often you publish, what types of videos you publish, all of that takes place right here and will be refined. But right here you know what you're doing and why. Is that? Because you got proof of concept and I just need to say it again to reassure you or perhaps not reassure you? If you are getting inconsistent results or you're feeling stuck on your channel, there's probably something you're missing right here.
And now we are on to phase three. Your big goal for this phase is to get audience. Now that's a simplified way of saying I've got proof of concept. Now it's time to prove that proof of concept by actually getting audience and seeing growth on the channel. Ok, I'm going to do something I have almost never done on this channel and that is invite you to boop the like button again. I don't think have I ever done that. I don't think I've ever done that in the video. The main reason I'm doing that is in case you didn't the first time, but also in case I forgot to record the first BOOP the like button, here's another one.
So during this phase, the primary skill sets we're focusing on our first being able to predict success and plan pre plan breakout videos. Because of the amount of experience we've had up to this point, we're starting to be able to use our time much more wisely and understand before we even produce the video. Is this going to be a good video from our audience or is it not. The next thing we're going to do is within our content start focusing on making the content memorable because this phase is all about building your audience.
The more things we can do to make our content memorable, the more likely. Our audience will be to talk to other people about your channel and come back and rewatch videos. And we're also focusing on tightening the content itself, making it really good. The editing being very precise, the messaging being very precise, taking less time to say the same thing and making sure that the most important or best parts of our content are coming out. So the first project, 24 member channel example is PHYSIONIC, which is all about simplifying medical studies for you. Yes, I got that off their banner up here.
He's doing several things really well. One, he's taking requests and interacting with the audience, which is huge during this audience builder goal, and based on those requests, he's creating videos that are starting to be more and more interesting to the audience. Now, a thing that Nicholas should be focusing on right now is establishing traditions with the audience. For example, in the beginning of this video, one of the first things he says is one of my pet peeves is and then he starts going off on this rant. That is a great example of a tradition that I think would fit his channel branding very well.
This channel PHYSIONIC is an example of a channel that I see about to be doing really well. It might take six months to get there, but the proof of concept is there and I am super excited to see what Nicholas does with this next. This channel is nerdy knitting and this one is really awesome to me because a while ago I did a video reviewing channels under 100 subscribers and this channel was one of them because Tanya is a member of Project 24 It's been really cool for me to see her growth journey and to see it being at this point. A while ago it was just 100 subscribers is super awesome to me and I think a lot of that is due to Tanya talking to her audience like they are real people.
The people who watch her videos feel like they know her, but right now I would say the primary thing missing from this channel is intentionally doing standout videos or what I call kite videos. This channel would benefit hugely from making videos that you know will do well and spread a lot to capture new audience. Now this is where you start to see some really cool results, including with your audience. That you are growing, you start to have some traditions. Your audience starts to know you for certain things.
Now, whether or not these are explicit traditions like booping the like button or howdy howdy or similar, there are still reasons why your audience knows your channel. They're starting to get that. They're starting to understand, oh, I like your channel. I like this channel. Instead of the other channels on Youtube because of the traditions, another result you're seeing is your content quality is going up a lot because you've got proof of concept, you've done all of these correctly at this point. You've been focusing in a lot more on creating more enjoyable or an interesting videos for your audience to watch those going up.
And in addition, I put 100$ a month, you're starting to make money from your channel. And this is because even if you haven't done any other monetization or revenue things, you're starting to get ad revenue and it's starting to grow with your audience. That's exciting. Now again this is an estimate, a very conservative estimate of what I would hope to get from a channel. But I wanted to put it on there to be encouraging because this is where it starts to get really exciting. You start making income, you start realizing, Dang, I have something here.
My channel is pretty cool. And this is also the point where I need to mention if you are struggling with your channel up to this point, it's probably because you missed something. Earlier on, 9 times out of 10, you missed something you don't understand, you don't have the clarity, you didn't actually get going, that one doesn't even count. But you don't have the clarity, you haven't actually started implementing or you don't have proof of concept yet.
If you are struggling before, this is probably because you need Project 24 my YouTube system. But in all seriousness, This is why I have created this road map, to understand if you are struggling to reach a certain milestone here, it's probably because you missed something earlier on. So we need to go back and master that skill set. Before we move on, all right, we're back at the blackboard and Are you ready to talk about money? And by money, I mean Are you ready to start earning money on your channel? That is what phase four is all about.
Your big goal here is not to get money, it's to get your revenue streams built. It's a simple distinction, but I want you to think of it that way because during this phase, we are building up the things that will carry on into more Evergreen revenue into the future. And again, I don't know who needs to hear this, but even if you're thinking of your channel as it's just a hobby. I don't necessarily care if I'm making money from it. Would it not be easier if you were making more money from your channel? Would it not be easier if you could quit your day job or whatever other projects you have going on and spend more time on this? Would you not enjoy that more? So that's why I included this at this point, because we've built it.
It's a stair step. We've built up our channel up to this point, so we have the audience. Now it's time to really start looking into ways that we can help them even more. Ok, if the last phase was where things were starting to get really exciting, this phase is where they're getting exciting extra exciting because. And now we start to actually create a business with our YouTube channel because it starts allowing you to get proof of concept that your channel can make income and it reduces the stress and other areas of your life because of that.
So what we're doing is first making our primary and secondary income pipelines. Yes, pipelines. We're creating ways to create ongoing income from our YouTube channel. And these can include things like creating your own information product, make your own website with affiliate links, creating your own Patreon or YouTube membership, looking into sponsorships. And more. And in fact, because making these pipelines of income tends to be a bigger project. It's why I have dedicated courses for several of them in Project 24 Next thing we're doing during this phase is understanding once we've created something, whatever our pipelines are understanding how to sell on Youtube Yes, I use the bad S word and not the word that you're thinking of.
It's sell how to sell on Youtube in a very authentic, natural way. This is huge for so many people because aside from it being it's not a set of like mental tactics, etc. Being able to come to your audience and authentically say look, I made something or I have a Patreon, I have something to help me out but also help you out more, give you more of what you love, go sign up right now. That skill set is so important and the next thing we're focusing on during this phase is collaborations, really our channels at the point where we're able to start reaching out to other people and building our channel that way.
Now for real channels that you can match your own Channel 2 to understand where you're at, the 1st is Brandon Picasso. He's a project 24 member. I am super inspired by what he's doing here because his whole. Theme is motorcycle home movies that touch the soul. I love that messaging. Now, he has some monetization methods in place, which is awesome. But as he posted a little while back in the project 24 community, he was confused about his lack of channel growth.
And my response to that the solution to this issue is we need to start up leveling the content ideas specifically in this way. We need to broaden the appeal of the videos so that a broader audience, even if they're not directly motorcycle enthusiasts, would still want to watch that video and then get this in the thumbnails we need to focus on the moment of action, not just like we see currently. A high level, just this is an image of a motorcycle. What's happening in the moment on that motorcycle.
Next channel, this rocking in this phase is Kim Badin. She is all about joyfully editing your closet and life again. I got it from their banner. But specifically, she's chosen some really cool niches of capsule wardrobes. And it was cool to me because recently she shared in the community here some screenshots of when she started Project 24 what had happened afterwards, as well as some questions about how to improve her thumbnails. And in fact, based on the feedback she got on her thumbnails, a little while later she posted about a video that she had changed a thumbnail style as a result, and that video currently sits as a really good kite video for the channel, which is really cool.
But you know me, I can't get by without also saying what needs to be improved on this channel, primarily considering the. Billing revenue, Kim needs to simplify how she is monetizing. So instead of having 100 affiliate links or a million things on the website, we need to have specific narrowed down directions to direct people. And in this space, affiliate marketing will be huge. So I would definitely double down on that. Now for results on this phase four, what you're going to start seeing is additional revenue.
I mean it kind of makes sense. However, I only bumped it up just slightly from 100 to 500$ a. Month again, these are just average numbers and the reason for that is because this phase is primarily. About building those revenue streams, building the vehicles and putting them in place so that you're ready to move on to the next phase, which we'll get to here in a moment. The third thing is your channel is starting to become a known name, especially during this phase, your audience is starting to think of you as a real brand, and consequently companies for sponsorships or affiliate opportunities are also starting to think of you as a real brand. Oh, and by the way, if you want to see this whole process, this whole timeline, more visually with a lot more details on results, etc, you can go to channelmakers.com forward slash.
24 I have a whole timeline there, so I gotta say it up to this point. If you want to build a fulltime income Youtube channel, Project 24 does exactly that for you. Because as I mentioned earlier, the Youtube system follows this exact process and goes deep dive into every single one of these skill sets. It also includes live virtual masterminds, a active community, an insider's podcast that's only available to members and as I like to call it is a living system, meaning I update it all the time. None of this dump you in there and say see ya.
So if you're curious, you can check it out on the page I just said, all right, and now we are on to phase five. Your whole goal during this phase is to get fulltime with your channel, whether or not you want to keep your daytime job or whatever other projects you have going on fulltime income where you could stop all the other activities you're doing and be just fine just from your Youtube channel. That's the goal. So during this phase, the whole dynamic of your channel or any channel that's going through this.
Tends to be a lot different, and the differences are sometimes subtle or behind the scenes, but they're the differences that allow you to reach the milestones, OK? In this phase, this is where we really start to get into the skill sets that will take this to the entire goal of this entire video, making it something you own that becomes a fulltime income. So in this phase, we're focusing on a few key things, one identifying and capturing new audiences as needed.
If our channel isn't yet at the audience size to be able to support the income we're looking for, then that's the first thing. Or if we just want to grow beyond. What we're currently doing, that's exactly what we're doing during this phase. The second thing is we're solidifying the income sources. In the previous phase we built them out, we're starting testing them. In this phase we're starting to really refine them.
We're also focusing during this phase on supercharging individual videos performance. We can start to get into the minutia of if we know a video was supposed to do better, we can start to dedicate more time to tweaking it and changing it and directing traffic to that video. And a little bonus here, we can start to really focusing on having consistent branding offline and on so for some real.
Channels in this phase. Again, these are members of Project 24 The 1st is Brian from carving is fun, he is rocking it and he's about to perform a pivot. As I am recording this now, I'm not going to say much about Brian's channel because I actually did a full 30 or so minute audit indepth audit of his channel for the channel makers insiders. If you have not yet heard about that, you can sign up with a link in the description.
It's a totally free group and it's something I wanted to do for a long time. But the next channel is paint crush with Christie Rice. I've talked extensively with Christie, it's all about painting, obviously with an emphasis. On watercolors now, I want to point out immediately when you look at this channel compared to some of the other channels you see on YouTube or even earlier on in this video, there's a definite difference in the caliber of the branding alone.
If I were to click through into some of the videos, you would see it there as well. And in fact, in a recent conversation with Christie, she was sharing some screenshots from after she joined Project 24 and decided to really dedicate herself to publishing. This was January, you can see the average views on any given video, and this was March, just two months later. The average views on any given video drew. Dramatically more. This is super exciting to me. Now it's important to note here that the whole journey to fulltime on income for you watching this is not going to be all sunshine and roses.
And I think we all know that. And in fact, a while back Christy even shared a thread here in Project 24 about some concerns she was having, including even scrapping her relaunched channel. But because she stayed the course, she was able to more recently do this post called my road to a hundred thousand subscribers. And even though as of recording this channel isn't quite at a hundred thousand subscribers, it is definitely heading there and it will happen. Very soon. And I guess just for me personally, it means a lot when I hear someone say something like this. Just wanted to take a moment to think this community and the program contributors.
When I think about day 24 I think of channel makers. And the first time I stumbled upon one of Nate's videos over a year ago, and then she says, I knew instantly I was in a good place. That is why I am doing this, because I love to see this happen. That just means so much to me personally because This is why I'm doing all of this and I hope you're getting that up to this point. So now in the case of Christie, she's created her own products. She's doing very well. And it's only upward from here. I'm super excited for it. Now before I get to the milestones for this phase, there are additional aspects on how you treat building your channel this year that are a little bit different than you might be expecting.
And I'll be covering how to approach and customize this timeline for your own channel here in a moment. But as far as milestones, we got the big OL, 4000$ or more per month you're making from your channel because everything you've been doing thus far is starting to pay off the revenue streams you're building. The audience loves you. You're starting to see it come in. You're starting to get those deals, the affiliate income, the sponsorship. Ships, all of those things that you've been building thus far is starting to pay off here. And like I mentioned earlier, if you want to, you're able to quote, unquote, retire from the other efforts you are doing because your channel is finally proving to be what you wanted it to be all along.
And for many people, just getting to this point means mission accomplished. We're good. Let us keep doing the channel at this point. But for some people watching this, you may feel like once you reach this point, you're ready to reach the next level. Which is why I put now you're ready to scale. At this point, you're able to start. Delegating, building a team, building other revenue sources and building a broader business if desired. And if you're watching this and your channel is at that point, you're ready to scale. I might know a guy that could help you with that, but as that's not the point of this video, if you are curious about that, feel free to shoot me an email All right.
Now I need to address perhaps one of the biggest questions that I get about building a successful Youtube channel for you here that is, well, can't I just do it myself? Can I just go through this and just hash it out and go through the grind now let me speak clearly and openly to that, yes. You can. In fact, channels do it all the time without doing any courses like Project 24 without doing anything like that, they find success and that is awesome. However, and I have seen this time and time again, it's much more difficult For these reasons. One, it's not a sequence.
The very nature of Youtube is it's fragmented tips. It's a fragmented bag of a bunch of things like oh, you need to do this, you need to do this. And it's not clearly where are you right now? This is what to focus on right now and nothing else. Second issue is it's really hard to go alone, which is why you'll see comments like, hey, who else? Is a new YouTuber here. Let's just stick to it. Let's stay in the grind. We're trying to encourage each other, which is awesome, but what's better is having a group of people that are there and doing it with you and that also have a common language.
So when you talk about drafting or kite videos etc etc. You know what you're talking about. And the third thing that makes it difficult is it's really hard to get external feedback, peer-to-peer feedback from people who are actually invested in creating a Youtube channel. Not just passively giving advice, but also feedback from an expert so you can do it yourself. It's just it takes a lot more. And that's often time that we can't afford or we don't have.
And so if you haven't yet noticed, I think you should join Project 24 It's my YouTube system. It is awesome. It literally provides the solutions to everything that we were just saying. So if you want to check it out, go to channelmakers dot com forward slash project twenty four because it's actually really simple. Here's what it's going to look like. You're going to Sign up today and the first thing you're going to do is you're going to see the welcome screen, which shows you exactly where to get each of the resources available to you. And then you're going to go to oh point.
3-7 the starter phase, and do the very first lessons to understand. How to use the rest of the system so that you have the solution of a clear sequence. You know what to do next you're going to join the community, so you're not alone anymore. And in fact, recently I released the new battleship method, or the way to make the whole channel Evergreen. There's been a lot of buzz in the community about that and asking questions and understanding how to best apply it to your channel.
So that's cool. But no matter, when you join, you're going to see a lot of activity in there. And then the next thing you're going to do, and this is very simple, is RSVP for some masterminds. These are the live virtual groups where myself or a member of my team will often facilitate a workshop and you get to ask real questions for. Your specific needs and these happen multiple times every single month. It's simple. So if it's a fit for you, just go do it, all right? And as promised, let's talk about how to use this system for your specific channel. First of all, I got to address this little rotating 20 videos down here.
And this is because even if you think your channel is at some point over here, I still recommend in most cases if you feel like you are missing skill sets, key skill sets. Over here I want you to spend about 20 videos and each of these five phases excluding the compass and the point. 37 over on this side and the reason for that is it allows you to develop practice consistency of applying these skill sets so you can see them in action and track your numbers as a result of the pivots you make along the way. Now back to this infamous compass over here. I took the number off of the compass because previously it was number 2 and these went up to number seven because I realize this phase is totally different than all the other ones.
These ones tend to be built upon each other sequential skill sets and results. Compass Phase is the phase. It's also wet with the little, you know, squirkle lines around it instead of just the square. Compass Phase is the phase that you come back to over and over again. If I could draw a line from each of these just circling back to compass, I would because for example, let's say you're moving on from phase two to phase three. Will you have learned some things during phase two that you could use in phase three? Absolutely and will that change your perspective on where you are playing on YouTube? Yes, it will.
So the way I see it at this point, there are basically two choices. You can choose one of these two things. You can take this which represent honestly represents hundreds of hours of work on my part. I just gave it to you. Here is the timeline. Where are you at what point at what phase are you self identify? I understand. Ok. I'm in this phase.
All right. These are the skill sets I'm going to focus on. This is my next milestone. This is what I'm doing right now. That is the first choice. It's an awesome choice and I'm just fine if you choose that. The second choice, which I am obviously biased towards is you can get help along the way because there are multiple ways. Multiple mistakes that can happen along the way.
Multiple ways that the skill set you think you've mastered the skill set, but it isn't there yet, and so you're stuck perpetually in one of these phases. There are so many ways that you can mess up on Youtube and you know this very well. So the second choice is choosing to get help. Choosing to get a road map, a community, and coaches that will help you to get there more quickly, as well as avoid so many of the pitfalls along the way.
And now when it comes to the heart of the matter here, when I look at this why are you building a Youtube channel? There's a real. Really good chance that you're doing it because you want to provide well for yourself and your family. You want to share something that you care a lot about, and you want to do it with something that you own finally that is why I made my YouTube system to help people do exactly that.
And I just wanted to say here, with all the prices going on, with inflation, with all of these costs going up, we've purposely kept the price of project 24 constant. And of course, that's not to say it will never change in the future. It's just right now we wanted a way to help people out by not raising the price when everything else. Was going on, and in fact I've done my research here and the price is far better than any other equivalent option that I have found anything.
So if you want to look into it, go to channel makers dot com forward slash project twenty four and just go check it out. There's an entire tour, you can see behind the scenes of what it actually looks like, and I get it. If money is the main thing stopping you from doing this right now, it's OK. However, I do want to say this, if all that project 24 does for you is get you to revenue one month sooner, it will have paid for itself and every month after that will just be bonus, so go join it. At channel makers dot com forward slash project twenty four and we'll see you inside.
