2012 was a great year for me in a lot of ways, but especially with managing to achieve one of my goals of being a public speaker. Who knew that this goofy comedian would actually be someone that people in the business community wanted to listen to? I managed to book myself more than a dozen speaking...

I recently got back from attending Playlist LIVE, an annual YouTube convention that takes place in Orlando, Florida. I went last year as well (its inaugural year) and had a great time, but didn’t take any video because I was just focused on networking and meeting as many of the top YouTubers in...

YouTube recently announced that its platform is serving over 200 million views from smart phones and internet-capable mobile devices daily. As I wrote about last year, there’s only one direction for mobile video viewing to go from here…. and that’s up! Having said that, content creators...

2013 is coming to a close and YouTube has put out their year in review video called YouTube Rewind 2013. Around the same time last year I actually was interviewed on a Vancouver radio station to talk about the top videos of 2012 and not long after that did interviews on two Kamloops radio stations about YouTube marketing and viral videos in general. I never put those...Read More »
If you’re serious about having success with YouTube videos you need to know where you stand – in comparison to all the other videos on the website and even in regards to the other content creators who are making similar content to yours… especially if you’re making web videos for your business. I recently discovered a new service called VideoLC...Read More »
It’s been a while since I’ve done a song parody, but it’s probably what I’m best known for on YouTube and I’ve finally put up a new one! The only other on that I made this year was a spoof of the Will.I.Am and Justin Bieber song That Power. I had a lot of fun with that one (like I do with all of them) and it did get a good amount of views...Read More »
I’ve been asked what got me started with YouTube Marketing and truth be told it was originally just a way to possibly get discovered by Hollywood. No joke. I saw a news report about someone getting into a TV show and someone getting into a movie because of their YouTube videos and that evening I set up my channel, came up with a guerilla marketing type of idea,...Read More »
Do you have a video that isn’t generating as much traffic as you’d hope? The problem might not be the content, but simply the keywords. Keywords are certain words that you attach to a video to help YouTube (and Google) make your video more accessible to your potential audience! But I already put tags on my videos, so why are they still not being seen? Just...Read More »
YouTube can be a really beneficial tool for most businesses large and small, but even nonprofit organizations should be taking advantage of it to raise awareness for their causes! It can be a great way to reach many more people and help them understand what the NPO is all about. I recently worked with a not-for-profit organization called posAbilities (which helps to empower...Read More »
I make weekly comedic videos for my main YouTube channel that consist of everything from original sketches to song parodies and a number of other silly things in between. The ones that typically get the most amount of views are the parodies, either of new pop songs or of current events. I was thinking of what to do for my next video when I noticed a lot of people I follow...Read More »
It’s the start of Social Media Week, which is a worldwide event with local presence and global reach across five continents. In 2011 and 2012 there were Social Media Weeks in Vancouver and I was a speaker at both on YouTube marketing, but unfortunately this year there isn’t one here. On the bright side though, I was nominated for two social media awards this...Read More »
Every year I fly to California to attend VidCon. I’ve been at each one since they started and I always have a great time. This year my friend (and fellow funny video creator) Samantha Mack and I decided to drive down and stay for a month afterwards in LA so I could go to some training and networking sessions at YouTube Space LA and also do some collaborations with...Read More »
So you know how we’re in a world of increasingly shorter attention spans? Well, it seems like more and more apps are starting to cater to that fact (and maybe making it even worse)? First I got on Keek with their 36 second videos, then I got on Viddy with their 15 second videos, and now I’m hooked on Vine with their 6.5 second videos. It just keeps getting...Read More »
