Part 2 of last week's episode digging deeper into how you can analyze your YouTube comments to make better content, engage with your audience, and know what audience to create next.
This week, we're diving into how to identify what I call a pulse with your community and better to identify where your audience is in their customer and content journey.
If you've been creating video content and you want to make sure that the content is not only accomplishing its job but resonating with your audience and you're getting likes, comments, and engagements.
BUT if you're not getting that engagement, today we want to dive into Part 1 of 2 of how to start getting more engagement on your YouTube videos for your business.

So if you can't come up for search, then your channel is already not doing a great job with that, for your name. We could talk about titles and stuff all day, but if you're primary channel host/business owner or channel name isn't coming up on YouTube, you're invisible.
When it comes to YouTube, most entrepreneurs getting into content creation on YouTube miss the mark when it comes to understanding how to best use the platform.
YouTube has many layers to it and one of those layers is best utilizing the real estate space they provide you on your channel home page.
Always be thinking of the viewer's experience of what they're seeing "above the fold".
Before someone ever scrolls down to find out more of what you have or what other videos you have, your channel header, channel trailer, channel trailer descriptions, and the links to your website are all the different areas of real estate data and space YouTube provides...
Have you ever wondered why video creators end up buying so many lenses when they buy a camera?
It's because better lenses equal better quality video and higher quality video is a game-changer!
However, if you don't want to buy a ton of lense for video, I'm going to share with you how to take a prime lens that has one focal length, like the Sigma 16mm lens, and turn it into a 16-24 f1.4 zoom lens FOR FREE!
On an actual zoom lens, like the kit lens that comes with any camera, there is a range you can actually turn the lens and zoom in and out.
What we've experienced on our phones for a long time is a digital zoom, where you pinch and zoom in or out on your phone.
With new phones, like the Google Pixel 5, you now have multiple lenses on your phone that no longer digitally zoom but operate similar to a regular camera and switch between the lenses to get you closer or further away from an object without moving or losing video quality.
In today's episode, we're going to be jumping into the common question that I often get, which, depending on who you ask, you oftentimes can get different answers.
However, I want to give you the most accurate answer for the most specific reasons when it comes to why I say you need these seven must-have features if you're an entrepreneur and you're deciding on a camera to buy to answer the question, "What camera should I buy for video?".
Too often, people choose a camera based on the price first, instead of the features and the things that they need versus the price.
So, I want to address the question of "What camera should I buy for video?", even if you're new, even if you already have had a camera and maybe you're upgrading these will be universal features that I believe moving forward for where we are right now.
Moving forward, these are the things your camera must-have for video if you're an entrepreneur.
When it comes to the original Canon M50 versus the Mark II there really aren't a ton of differences between them. And there has been a lot of changes in the camera industry that really makes this camera fall flat I think.
I think that is not an upgradable camera at all.
I will honestly say, consider moving to a different system like a Fuji or a Sony. Even some of Nikon offerings are a bit better, and I'm gonna be covering in a future video some of the options that maybe you could consider that meet some of those advanced creator's needs and entrepreneurial needs when it comes to content creation. But let's not all be doom and gloom here.
Let's really cover some of the new changes that they've made into the mark two. And whether or not this is something you should upgrade to, which I use that word very loosely.
#1 CLEAN HDMI OUT
The most important feature that the new Canon M50 Mark II has is the clean HDMI out feature means that you can use that micro HDMI...
Amazon Prime Day is Amazon's personal holiday where we get to have discounted prices like after Thanksgiving sales but on days Amazon designates vs waiting for the holiday.
As a result, we skip the lines and feel like kids in a candy store getting the things we need to operate our businesses at a discounted price.
That being said, we have entered into one of those holiday sales like days, and below you'll find my recommendations for entrepreneurs looking to buy gear to make content creation easier.
I would highly suggest taking a look around your house and what life looks likes now working more from home and having your family at home and what can help simplify that experience for you.
I would highly consider looking at tools that increase your efficiency in work and even your personal life.
I'll not only be recommending more camera-related tech but also some basic upgrades worth considering around the house.
If you don't have an...
One of the least common ways to get YouTube subscribers is by your YouTube Channel Page.
In this episode, I breakdown the key components that go into receiving new subscribers by filling out and completing your YouTube channel page in a way that compels new subscribers to not only want to watch your videos but subscribe before they've even clicked on a video...yet!
