    Great tutorial Sam. Thanks for sharing this great tactics today. I used to do a lot more Youtube videos and then moved to other things, but I agree with you Youtube is strong. I am planning to get back on YT in 2019. Have to work on it!

  2. James Scott

    Amazing tutorial Sam! Your video covers information even for advanced people in digital marketing.

  4. Thanks for sharing these tips. These are great tips for beginners. Looking forward to watch more videos on each of these strategies explained in depth.

  5. Hi Sam, your knowledge and expertise really helped me out. I was wondering if I could use a few points from your video for my prepared speech topic for an organization called BPA that I will be competing in? thanks!

  6. Hey Sam, are there anymore tutorials that go a bit more in-depth into each of the digital marketing strategies (social media ads, google ads, youtube, etc.)? other than SEO which you’ve already mentioned in the video

  7. Glad to hear 🙂 Feel free to use our tips, but if you do use any of our resources, we ask that you provide attribution.

  9. Juliana Spínola

    This is so great! Thank you! I have one question: I’m starting my own online business but I have Spanish and English speakers audience. How would that be on keywords research? Does it matter if I put it in Spanish or English? Thanks a lot!!

  10. You need to have separate pages for Spanish and English speakers. So you will have two language versions of each page. Make sure to use hreflang tags properly.

    When you offer more useful information instead of selling, you are loved by people, but if you focus on selling more, people will start to hate you.

  12. Samantha McKinney

    Totally agreed! When it comes to digital marketing, it’s important to build trust and informational content before stepping forward and offering a service! They need to be able to trust you before they trust your business.

  13. Hello! Thank you so much for your video. The content you shared has been really helpful. What advice do you have for a beauty company start-up in terms of marketing their services? What marketing tools would you recommend focusing on at the beginning of its journey on the market place?
    Thank you again, and will deff keep watching your videos. very helpful!!!!!

  14. Alina, thanks for watching. It is hard to tell where you should start. I guess consulting with a local SEO agency may help you to coordinate your marketing activities and prioritize things better. I would start with market analyzes, defining top competitors and possible keywords/topics where you can get your piece of traffic.

    Thank you for this content. So informative, clear, clean-cut and logical.

  16. Tina Shelton

    This was well presented, intelligent, efficient and helpful. An excellent overview for beginners like me who find the whole thing intimidating!

  17. Yuza Taddeo

    This video on digital marketing is probably one of the most helpful and useful to date. The paradigm of digital marketing will continue to follow the guidelines set in this video for many years to come.

  18. I like the way you explain things, in simple terminology and straight to the point. I have noticed you use some acronyms which I’m not too familiar with but aside from that, easy to understand and learn.

  19. I’m a developer for an all around web service company and I’ve been delegated all the work from our previous head of marketing and this video really gave me a good understanding of where to start. Thank you for this, I will be utilizing these strategies personally and professionally. What I took from this video was fully understanding the wants and needs of consumers and being able to capitalize on the wants and needs first before tunneling on a sales strategy. Currently, I’m working on creating cluster content so my AdWords and focus keywords are actually consistent and optimally being utilized. Thank you again, I truly appreciated this video, knowledge is power. Liked and subscribed.

  20. Got a lot of work on my hands and am getting paid less than half of the average salary in Vegas. Definitely pulled some ideas and strategies that were inspired from this video that will change that.

  21. Disha Sharma
