WEBVTT 1 00:01:30.000 --> 00:02:14.479 And now here's something we hope you really like. You're listening to creating daily. 2 00:02:14.560 --> 00:02:16.719 Yeah, well, the number one live streaming show that I'm the host 3 00:02:16.719 --> 00:02:21.000 of speaks to me. It's like he's saying what I'm thinking, streaming on 4 00:02:24.960 --> 00:02:30.759 what is going on everyone. I hope you are having an awesome Thursday. 5 00:02:30.919 --> 00:02:35.280 My name is Billie. This is creating daily and Philsy. I've been gone 6 00:02:35.319 --> 00:02:38.879 forever, but I can't remember the last time I've stream. I've been streaming 7 00:02:38.000 --> 00:02:44.319 two different places. been streaming to Amazon quite a bit lately. I'll just 8 00:02:44.400 --> 00:02:49.000 change out this, this little boom arm here, so it's I'm trying to 9 00:02:49.039 --> 00:02:51.840 forgure that out as well, so might as well do that live. But 10 00:02:51.919 --> 00:02:54.800 I've been having a lot of fun. I've been focused on Amazon live. 11 00:02:55.199 --> 00:03:01.120 I've been focused on creating product videos, short form videos, for Amazon, 12 00:03:01.280 --> 00:03:05.360 and so I want to share a little bit about that journey because I'm literally 13 00:03:05.360 --> 00:03:08.280 making money while I sleep and I know as a content creator, most of 14 00:03:08.360 --> 00:03:12.639 us are trying to figure out like, how do we monetize this sooner than 15 00:03:12.719 --> 00:03:15.879 later? And for people who know me, you know more from the podcast 16 00:03:15.879 --> 00:03:17.199 world. What's up me? By the way, good to see you man, 17 00:03:17.240 --> 00:03:20.599 what is up John? Good to see you as well. If you 18 00:03:20.599 --> 00:03:23.360 know me from the podcast world then you know that this is one of my 19 00:03:23.360 --> 00:03:29.520 biggest passions, is to help podcasters and content creators make some money. Figure 20 00:03:29.560 --> 00:03:34.599 that out. So I primarily have been focused on sponsorships. But now I'm 21 00:03:35.120 --> 00:03:38.360 still focused on sponsorships. I still have sponsors, you know, for my 22 00:03:38.360 --> 00:03:42.039 podcast, for different projects. But, as we all know, if you're 23 00:03:42.080 --> 00:03:45.520 just stuck in one thing, you're doing one thing and that's your bread and 24 00:03:45.560 --> 00:03:49.439 butter. If that goes away, which that actually happened to me today, 25 00:03:49.479 --> 00:03:53.800 I had a email in my inbox from one of our sponsors. It said, 26 00:03:53.800 --> 00:03:57.120 hey, cost of business is going up, we're cutting some, you 27 00:03:57.159 --> 00:04:00.840 know, things around here and unfortunately your podcast is on the cutting block. 28 00:04:00.919 --> 00:04:03.439 It's on the chopping block. So we're going to we're going to, you 29 00:04:03.479 --> 00:04:09.159 know, discontinue sponsorship with you until further notice so you know, finish up 30 00:04:09.199 --> 00:04:12.080 billing US whatever you need to build us and then, you know, we'll 31 00:04:12.080 --> 00:04:14.919 pay that off and we'll be, you know, kind of a clean slate. 32 00:04:14.960 --> 00:04:16.680 And while that is like, Oh man, as a huge bummer, 33 00:04:16.839 --> 00:04:21.560 that stinks, luckily for myself and also for my podcast partner. We've set 34 00:04:21.600 --> 00:04:27.480 up different streams of revenue within that business. So we're not just like freaking 35 00:04:27.519 --> 00:04:29.360 out right now, going Oh, man, I'll you know, we're going 36 00:04:29.399 --> 00:04:32.519 to lose all this money from this one sponsor or whatnot. And sure, 37 00:04:32.560 --> 00:04:36.000 we go out, we do some work, we replace that sponsor, we, 38 00:04:36.199 --> 00:04:39.399 you know, do that kind of thing. Now. We're super grateful 39 00:04:39.439 --> 00:04:43.480 for them, super grateful for the episodes, The Times, days months they've 40 00:04:43.519 --> 00:04:46.439 been with us, but we're not freaking out, and it's because we've set 41 00:04:46.519 --> 00:04:51.720 up multiple streams of revenue into that business and actually have plans to do that 42 00:04:51.800 --> 00:04:57.800 more. And same with me as an individual creator working on my own projects. 43 00:04:57.839 --> 00:05:00.680 I am not just focused on, you know, one or two things. 44 00:05:00.759 --> 00:05:04.480 I'm trying to really, you know like be out there, put put 45 00:05:04.519 --> 00:05:08.439 my little fillers out there, figure out what's going to work for me and 46 00:05:08.839 --> 00:05:12.720 what can I work to do and build, you know, build a business 47 00:05:12.720 --> 00:05:15.360 as a content creator. And so one of those ways is through live selling. 48 00:05:15.399 --> 00:05:18.519 Now I've had a couple people on the show already this year to talk 49 00:05:18.639 --> 00:05:23.759 about it. One was monty weaver and then the other one is Chris Stone. 50 00:05:23.879 --> 00:05:28.600 Now I blame both of these guys for, you know, like really 51 00:05:28.600 --> 00:05:33.199 just inspiring me to continue on with Amazon live and really push forward. You 52 00:05:33.199 --> 00:05:35.800 know, especially now I'm back in the states and I can work with brands 53 00:05:35.879 --> 00:05:40.519 and I can work with product developers and things like that, it's a little 54 00:05:40.560 --> 00:05:43.759 bit easier than when I was in the middle of the ocean. And so 55 00:05:44.000 --> 00:05:46.879 I got back, obviously I haven't been on regular schedule with creating daily because 56 00:05:46.879 --> 00:05:51.279 I've been trying to figure out how do I take creating daily and implement an 57 00:05:51.319 --> 00:05:57.720 Amazon live or now Ebay, Ebay live, ebays mentioned. Saw An article, 58 00:05:57.720 --> 00:06:01.519 like my friend Chris Giles posted today, that Ebay is, you know, 59 00:06:01.519 --> 00:06:05.160 announcing they're going to go live. I think Walmart is announcing they're going 60 00:06:05.160 --> 00:06:11.720 to have a live platform. So live selling for us content creators is another 61 00:06:11.800 --> 00:06:15.360 opportunity to create content and to make money with that, and so I've been 62 00:06:15.399 --> 00:06:18.439 doing this with Amazon. I've been on Amazon for a little I think a 63 00:06:18.439 --> 00:06:23.759 little over a year, and I haven't really been super focused on it. 64 00:06:23.920 --> 00:06:29.519 I posted some videos, two thirty videos, and those have been really making 65 00:06:29.519 --> 00:06:32.319 money every single day while I sleep, which is Crez I mean I just 66 00:06:32.399 --> 00:06:35.560 wall asleep, but while I'm doing anything right or other. I'm creating other 67 00:06:35.600 --> 00:06:40.639 content or whatever, and that's through shoppable videos, and so I wanted to 68 00:06:40.639 --> 00:06:44.560 show you guys a little bit about that today to hopefully inspire you. And 69 00:06:44.600 --> 00:06:47.480 then, you know, it does take and I don't know the exact numbers 70 00:06:48.240 --> 00:06:54.120 or whatever to become an Amazon influencer, but you can google, you know, 71 00:06:54.160 --> 00:06:58.439 become an Amazon influencer, get the link and apply and you use one 72 00:06:58.439 --> 00:07:00.519 of your social media accounts. Now, when I was doing it, I 73 00:07:00.519 --> 00:07:04.120 think I had to have like twenty five hundred followers on, you know, 74 00:07:04.160 --> 00:07:09.279 like facebook or instagram. I think now you can do like Tick Tock. 75 00:07:09.439 --> 00:07:13.959 I think you can implement tick tock into it and maybe some other platforms that 76 00:07:14.079 --> 00:07:17.480 weren't. And literally with Tick Tock, I mean you could literally grow at 77 00:07:17.480 --> 00:07:20.519 Tick Tock Account. I had a friend do this. made a bunch of 78 00:07:20.600 --> 00:07:25.000 videos, a couple of them sparked off. Before you know it, now 79 00:07:25.000 --> 00:07:29.519 he has like from zero, never really created a ton of content, never 80 00:07:29.600 --> 00:07:32.959 focussed on it. When from zero followers on tick tock it's like fourteenzero or 81 00:07:33.040 --> 00:07:38.120 something. So if I was going to do it all over again, that's 82 00:07:38.160 --> 00:07:40.360 probably what I would do, is like head over to tick Tock, start 83 00:07:40.360 --> 00:07:44.480 making a bunch of videos and try to get those numbers up. And once 84 00:07:44.519 --> 00:07:47.199 again, I think it was like twenty five hundred when I started, but 85 00:07:47.279 --> 00:07:51.560 that was also, I believe, over, definitely over a year ago, 86 00:07:51.800 --> 00:07:55.839 maybe a year and a half ago. So anyway, you might be going, 87 00:07:56.199 --> 00:07:58.439 all right, billy, this is great, this is live sellings, 88 00:07:58.519 --> 00:08:01.120 cool, you know, whatever you're talking about sounds fun, but what the 89 00:08:01.120 --> 00:08:05.480 heck is it? And so I want to jump over here and show you, 90 00:08:05.480 --> 00:08:09.560 you know, kind of what I've been working on as far as as 91 00:08:09.560 --> 00:08:15.079 far as Amazon live goes and what I've been creating on their platform. So 92 00:08:15.160 --> 00:08:18.120 let me pull up a window here so I can show you. So, 93 00:08:18.160 --> 00:08:22.879 first of all, there's a few different ways to monetize Amazon that I figured 94 00:08:22.920 --> 00:08:26.720 out so far. One of those ways is to go live. So you 95 00:08:26.759 --> 00:08:28.319 sign up for Amazon live account. Yeah, I think you have to go 96 00:08:28.439 --> 00:08:33.000 live like not not consider not at one time, but I think over a 97 00:08:33.039 --> 00:08:37.600 period of you know whatever, like ninety minutes. So a total amount of 98 00:08:37.639 --> 00:08:41.600 like ninety minutes, or this is what it was when I signed up. 99 00:08:41.039 --> 00:08:43.039 So you can do that hour and a half stream. We can do that 100 00:08:43.039 --> 00:08:46.600 to forty five minut streams or thirty minute streams, whatever you wanted to just 101 00:08:46.600 --> 00:08:50.159 got to hit that ninety minute mark, I believe, and then you go 102 00:08:50.279 --> 00:08:56.360 from like a rising star to you can apply for the I believe it's insider, 103 00:08:56.759 --> 00:09:01.879 and what insider does allows you to now I'll create shoppable videos. You 104 00:09:01.879 --> 00:09:05.840 can think of these is like short form videos or Amazon shorts or something of 105 00:09:05.840 --> 00:09:09.519 that nature, from you know, call a lot of stuff or influence or 106 00:09:09.600 --> 00:09:15.000 videos, and it's kind of like youtube, but not really, because the 107 00:09:15.000 --> 00:09:20.519 whole idea is for me to show you a product as you're shopping on Amazon 108 00:09:20.600 --> 00:09:22.240 already. So you're already on there, you're already shopping and you're like, 109 00:09:22.279 --> 00:09:26.399 okay, I'm shopping for, I don't know, like some sparkling water, 110 00:09:26.559 --> 00:09:30.600 like you know, I've heard liquid death. I'm going to go shop around, 111 00:09:30.600 --> 00:09:33.440 I'm going to see if I can find some sparkling water that's different than 112 00:09:33.480 --> 00:09:37.440 what I drink normally. And then you come across the page with there with 113 00:09:37.519 --> 00:09:41.720 the severed line, you know, liquid death, sparkling water, and you're 114 00:09:41.759 --> 00:09:45.080 scrolling around and all of a sudden you see this video and it's me going 115 00:09:45.200 --> 00:09:48.639 hey, guys, are just bought this I tasted it so good, making 116 00:09:48.679 --> 00:09:52.360 Mohito out of it, make whatever you want to, and that in that 117 00:09:52.399 --> 00:09:54.720 pushes you kind of over the edge to go. You know what, I'm 118 00:09:54.759 --> 00:09:56.600 going to try that. This guy seems cool, whatever. It's the same 119 00:09:56.679 --> 00:10:00.759 thing as we go on Youtube and we watch a ton of videos about like 120 00:10:00.799 --> 00:10:05.120 a pot Trefour, roadcaster pro or whatever and then Wa that helps us make 121 00:10:05.200 --> 00:10:07.799 that decision. So I think Amazon probably scretch their head like why are all 122 00:10:07.840 --> 00:10:11.559 these people going to youtube? We have this huge platform, let's do the 123 00:10:11.879 --> 00:10:18.159 shopping videos on our platform and give our customers a unique experience. Now the 124 00:10:18.320 --> 00:10:24.240 difference here from Youtube to Amazon that I've seen is youtube wants people to stay 125 00:10:24.360 --> 00:10:28.759 on Youtube because they sell ads. So if you can get somebody on there 126 00:10:28.279 --> 00:10:31.799 for twenty minutes, thirty minutes, an hour, two, three, four, 127 00:10:33.000 --> 00:10:35.639 ten hours whatever, they're super pumped. You're going to get rewarded for 128 00:10:35.720 --> 00:10:39.000 that because they want the attention to those as people to see those ads, 129 00:10:39.080 --> 00:10:41.879 to get that add money, to add revenue and then give you a little 130 00:10:41.919 --> 00:10:46.600 bit of that money. But with Amazon, what I've seen, anyway in 131 00:10:46.720 --> 00:10:50.559 my experience, is it's a one to twelve minute video and I'm going to 132 00:10:50.600 --> 00:10:54.840 talk about shoppable. So it's one to twelve minutes for these short form videos, 133 00:10:54.919 --> 00:11:00.240 for the shoppable videos, and it's really simple, like I make really 134 00:11:00.279 --> 00:11:03.679 simple ones. I'll show them to you here in just second. I'll kind 135 00:11:03.679 --> 00:11:07.639 of show you how I do it. And I'm not saying I'm like the 136 00:11:07.759 --> 00:11:11.559 Golden Star, the Golden Eagle or anything, but I've been making money every 137 00:11:11.600 --> 00:11:15.360 single day and they seem to convert pretty well. And so basically what you 138 00:11:15.440 --> 00:11:16.679 do and say. If I wanted to, you know, this joe be 139 00:11:18.399 --> 00:11:22.720 like phone holder. Okay, so the thing's pretty cool. It's awesome. 140 00:11:22.720 --> 00:11:24.759 I think it's like one thousand nine hundred and ninety nine on Amazon or whatever, 141 00:11:26.759 --> 00:11:28.559 and so I'm I want to talk about it right I want to share 142 00:11:28.600 --> 00:11:33.000 my experience. So now I'm not really creating a youtube video. I'm not 143 00:11:33.120 --> 00:11:35.480 really doing like a like a like a b roll shot where this is spin 144 00:11:35.600 --> 00:11:39.919 around on a little table and I'm not doing any of that. I'm literally 145 00:11:39.960 --> 00:11:41.080 saying like, okay, today I'm going to talk about this Joe Be, 146 00:11:41.600 --> 00:11:45.480 you know, phone holder or whatever. Check this thing out. It does 147 00:11:45.600 --> 00:11:48.879 this. I've had it for two or three years now and you know, 148 00:11:48.159 --> 00:11:52.440 just two different sizes, but I mainly use it for an overhead camp so 149 00:11:52.519 --> 00:11:56.519 I can get this shot, you know, paired with a you know whatever, 150 00:11:56.679 --> 00:12:01.000 like a like a boom arm with an adapter on it, so I 151 00:12:01.039 --> 00:12:03.320 can get this a little overhead shot. And so basically that's what I'm doing. 152 00:12:03.440 --> 00:12:07.039 I'm saying my experience good, bad, ugly, and I think of 153 00:12:07.120 --> 00:12:09.639 it is like if I'm sitting in front of a body of mine and he 154 00:12:09.720 --> 00:12:11.559 says, Hey, man, what do you think about that phone holder? 155 00:12:11.720 --> 00:12:15.440 Like a well, man, it's really nice. It's, you know, 156 00:12:15.639 --> 00:12:18.519 it's black, so it's a little tough. I lose it my bag. 157 00:12:18.600 --> 00:12:22.000 It's pretty small but also makes awesome thing put in my pocket. It feels 158 00:12:22.080 --> 00:12:26.120 flimsy, but it's not. It's like really hard metal you know whatever. 159 00:12:26.240 --> 00:12:30.720 Like I'm kind of talking like that. I'm not really trying to create this 160 00:12:30.919 --> 00:12:35.399 real long form video to get people to keep listening and listening and listening. 161 00:12:35.559 --> 00:12:39.399 So it's pretty simple and that's what's called like a shoppable video, and those 162 00:12:39.559 --> 00:12:43.480 live on a page like this. So this is my creating daily page. 163 00:12:43.519 --> 00:12:48.480 You can go to Billy Thorpe dot live and check it out. I will 164 00:12:48.480 --> 00:12:52.120 actually let me do this. I'll actually put it on the screen here. 165 00:12:54.159 --> 00:12:56.559 I'm probably sure link it somewhere, but I'm going live multiple places. So 166 00:12:56.840 --> 00:13:01.480 you can just go to Billy Thorpe dot live and if you want to see 167 00:13:01.559 --> 00:13:05.919 this in action, is so this page right here, as you can tell, 168 00:13:05.600 --> 00:13:09.559 is a bunch of short form videos. Here's one of the pod tract 169 00:13:09.600 --> 00:13:13.600 P four is, five minutes twenty six seconds. Here's one of the glide 170 00:13:13.639 --> 00:13:16.480 guarteep one hundred four minutes, four and a half minutes, three minutes for 171 00:13:16.519 --> 00:13:20.360 a cannon USRP. I'm just doing one and a half of a review for 172 00:13:20.480 --> 00:13:24.200 that. The thirty five millimeter macro one one a half minutes, six minutes 173 00:13:24.279 --> 00:13:28.360 for this microphone arm, which actually was sent to me by a brand which 174 00:13:28.399 --> 00:13:31.320 I'll talk about in a minute. You know, dummy battery, flip flops, 175 00:13:33.240 --> 00:13:35.679 flip flops, okay, this is my favorite. Flip flops. Their 176 00:13:35.720 --> 00:13:37.519 wides, by the way, if you need a pair, those things are 177 00:13:37.519 --> 00:13:41.080 awesome. I Love Them. You know, some lights to get from my 178 00:13:41.120 --> 00:13:43.799 studio, a cooler, which was also sent to me by a brand, 179 00:13:43.600 --> 00:13:48.960 my camera, my guitar, anything that you can think of, and this 180 00:13:48.159 --> 00:13:52.320 is where it gets a little bit weird for me because I come from the 181 00:13:52.399 --> 00:13:58.240 world of Niche. Like I am a niche podcaster in the fishing space on 182 00:13:58.360 --> 00:14:01.679 the coast of North Carolina and that is what we focus on. We don't 183 00:14:01.679 --> 00:14:05.000 talk about any fisheries or any fish that doesn't live in the salt, that 184 00:14:05.120 --> 00:14:07.720 doesn't live on the coast North Carolina. So when Amazon live came around and 185 00:14:07.799 --> 00:14:11.960 Chris Giles and Monte Weaver and Chris Stone and and Jim Fuse and some of 186 00:14:11.960 --> 00:14:16.399 these guys and Dan Courier, when they are all like saying hey, you 187 00:14:16.440 --> 00:14:18.559 guys, gotta Check Out Amazon, I'm going, Oh, what are you 188 00:14:18.639 --> 00:14:22.120 talking about? Like, what do you mean? What kind of products do 189 00:14:22.200 --> 00:14:24.519 you talk about? You know, do you talk about? I don't have 190 00:14:24.639 --> 00:14:26.200 that many products. Like I got some live streaming gear, I get some 191 00:14:26.320 --> 00:14:30.559 lights, I guess some whatever, but I'm eventually going to run out and 192 00:14:30.600 --> 00:14:31.799 they're like now, Dude, you can talk about anything you know, like 193 00:14:33.360 --> 00:14:37.000 anything like this doesn't make sense. So you know at first glance, as 194 00:14:37.000 --> 00:14:41.960 a content creator who I believe the more niche, the more you know, 195 00:14:41.159 --> 00:14:46.039 juice that you can have in the in algorithms and Seo searches and all this 196 00:14:46.159 --> 00:14:50.600 kind of stuff. I was a little bit confused that I could talk about 197 00:14:50.639 --> 00:14:56.240 my sparkling water, talk about my microphone, my smsvb, talk about my 198 00:14:56.399 --> 00:15:01.480 flip flops, talk about a sponge. I think I have a video somewhere 199 00:15:01.679 --> 00:15:05.840 on here on this page, where I'm talking about a sponge, a spaghetti 200 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:11.279 sponge, a t I did a first reaction to some kind of a tea 201 00:15:11.360 --> 00:15:15.759 that my wife liked, a bounty castle. Okay, so let me just 202 00:15:15.879 --> 00:15:18.480 show you this little bouncy gassle real quick, by the way. So this 203 00:15:18.639 --> 00:15:20.440 little bouncy gas so you can see it right there kind of in the middle 204 00:15:20.559 --> 00:15:24.000 of the hey. Okay, yeah, cool, I can zoom in. 205 00:15:24.080 --> 00:15:28.519 So right here in the middle of the page, that's when I weighed a 206 00:15:28.559 --> 00:15:31.080 little bit more weight as well. So this is kind of Nice to look 207 00:15:31.120 --> 00:15:35.879 back on. But right there this little bouncy house. I literally took pictures 208 00:15:35.000 --> 00:15:39.440 of it. I literally just shared my experience that my three year old love 209 00:15:39.559 --> 00:15:43.039 this bouncy house. It's one of my favorite toys to play with and all 210 00:15:43.120 --> 00:15:46.799 that kind of stuff, and this thing is one of my number one selling 211 00:15:46.879 --> 00:15:50.720 items on Amazon and when they sell. So here's how it works. You 212 00:15:50.960 --> 00:15:54.879 create a shoppable. That's what I call them, shoppable or short form video. 213 00:15:54.480 --> 00:15:58.919 Then you submit it, it gets reviewed, they say yes, it's 214 00:16:00.000 --> 00:16:03.519 in there. Well, then it starts getting rotated through product pages. So 215 00:16:03.600 --> 00:16:07.399 when you go to Amazon. So I'm going to Amazoncom and I don't know, 216 00:16:07.919 --> 00:16:11.879 we'll just go to a product that I think I might have a product 217 00:16:11.039 --> 00:16:17.519 on. So let me get a let me go to to this product. 218 00:16:17.679 --> 00:16:19.679 I don't know if my products is on here, not my video. I 219 00:16:19.799 --> 00:16:23.399 think it is, because I saw a couple of them selling. So let 220 00:16:23.440 --> 00:16:27.879 me just go down real quick and see. Oh yeah, okay, good. 221 00:16:27.919 --> 00:16:32.600 So here we go. So let's jump over here. So this is 222 00:16:32.679 --> 00:16:37.000 the Manscape lawnmower. Foh, now, mind you. Manscape sent this product 223 00:16:37.080 --> 00:16:41.159 to me for a different project and then I was like, Oh, I 224 00:16:41.200 --> 00:16:44.799 should make a video about it. So if I click to play this video, 225 00:16:45.559 --> 00:16:52.600 this is literally just an overhead shot of me talking about the the the 226 00:16:52.720 --> 00:16:56.360 Manscape Lawn Moore, and I'm saying, Hey, this is me after him, 227 00:16:56.919 --> 00:17:00.440 you know, four months review of this thing and now it lives on 228 00:17:00.600 --> 00:17:04.160 this product page. So this is their product page and if you come here 229 00:17:04.240 --> 00:17:07.920 to videos on the side, it shows you all the different pictures. If 230 00:17:08.000 --> 00:17:15.480 it goes to videos, then then my video is going to be in the 231 00:17:15.599 --> 00:17:18.279 in the video section, or if you scroll down to the bottom, my 232 00:17:18.400 --> 00:17:19.599 video is going to be in the video section. What's So del Casters was 233 00:17:19.680 --> 00:17:25.759 just talking about Chris Stone and Jim feuse and you know, like how you 234 00:17:25.799 --> 00:17:30.519 guys inspire me to continue on in this Amazon game, and so I've really 235 00:17:30.519 --> 00:17:32.599 been stepping it up. That's where I've been. That's what I've been doing, 236 00:17:33.240 --> 00:17:37.079 is really working on it. So if you're a creator and you we 237 00:17:37.240 --> 00:17:40.680 all have stuff, okay, like I did. I did a quick video 238 00:17:40.920 --> 00:17:44.400 on my guitar. I did a quick video on this. I've done a 239 00:17:44.519 --> 00:17:48.559 quick video on everything and just created these shoppable videos and they live on here 240 00:17:49.000 --> 00:17:52.480 one they live a few different places when they live on my page. So 241 00:17:52.599 --> 00:17:56.160 Billy Thorpe dot live. If you go there, you can go check out 242 00:17:56.200 --> 00:17:59.880 all those videos. If you click on them and you you make a perk, 243 00:18:00.039 --> 00:18:03.359 just it's a qualified purchase. I get a small percentage. Now I've 244 00:18:03.400 --> 00:18:06.720 seen percentages range. You know, most of the stuff that I'm selling is 245 00:18:06.759 --> 00:18:10.319 like two to four percent, depends on what it is, and there's probably 246 00:18:10.440 --> 00:18:14.279 some strategy. Well, I'M gonna say probably there there's some strategy that you 247 00:18:14.359 --> 00:18:17.559 can go through and really strategize on how to make the most money. You 248 00:18:17.680 --> 00:18:22.960 know, in there's certain categories that pay for whatever level of career that you're 249 00:18:22.000 --> 00:18:26.200 at, different percentages, and so there's a lot of opportunity here. And 250 00:18:26.279 --> 00:18:30.119 if if you want more information on it, for sure go listen to the 251 00:18:30.200 --> 00:18:34.519 episodes I do with Chris Stone and Monty Weaver. They've been in it for 252 00:18:34.559 --> 00:18:38.319 a while and you know, I've been sitting on it. I've been sleeping 253 00:18:38.440 --> 00:18:41.799 on it, ridiculously, just sleeping on it. But anyway, so these 254 00:18:41.960 --> 00:18:47.039 videos, I posted twelve of them in the last five days, and they 255 00:18:47.160 --> 00:18:51.039 will go, you know, get rotated through product pages, you know whatnot. 256 00:18:51.079 --> 00:18:53.599 And I don't know if anybody really understands exactly time frames and all that 257 00:18:53.640 --> 00:18:56.960 stuff. I don't know if anybody's been tracking it, but I kind of 258 00:18:57.119 --> 00:19:00.960 notice, you know, a cycle that will go through. So I'll have 259 00:19:00.079 --> 00:19:03.319 some products like this microphone, like this microphone, and make pretty good commission 260 00:19:03.359 --> 00:19:07.519 on it and I'll know like it'll cycle through, you know, maybe a 261 00:19:07.599 --> 00:19:11.400 week or two and then it'll cycle out. But the game is to just 262 00:19:11.759 --> 00:19:14.559 put as many products on here, as I can write some more products, 263 00:19:14.640 --> 00:19:18.039 more opportunity, more cycles, more, you know, rotating products that are 264 00:19:18.079 --> 00:19:22.720 going through these these care cells on these product pages and with people click on 265 00:19:22.839 --> 00:19:25.720 them and make a purchase. I get paid. So literally, I work 266 00:19:25.880 --> 00:19:29.519 one time I do a three minute video. Now I'm doing it. I'm 267 00:19:29.559 --> 00:19:30.920 doing it live, so I got it. Am doing live to drive. 268 00:19:32.039 --> 00:19:34.200 So just like this video, I'm like, Oh, hey, guys, 269 00:19:34.200 --> 00:19:37.279 what's up? Today? We're going to talk about the I don't know, 270 00:19:37.480 --> 00:19:40.759 like the pod track pfour. Okay, so here it is. It's on 271 00:19:40.839 --> 00:19:42.839 my desk. This button does this, this does this, and I might 272 00:19:42.880 --> 00:19:45.599 pick it up show all the stuff about it. You know, tell why 273 00:19:45.640 --> 00:19:49.680 I love it. I'm probably more like this. I have a little video 274 00:19:49.839 --> 00:19:53.359 here in the bottom corner, as you can see. In I'm creating a 275 00:19:53.440 --> 00:19:56.480 video just like this and I might switch shots, but a boom by the 276 00:19:56.559 --> 00:20:00.160 baying. But when I'm done, I'm done, I'll trim off the front, 277 00:20:00.200 --> 00:20:03.599 I'll trim off the back and I'll submit it and I'm finished and I'm 278 00:20:03.640 --> 00:20:07.039 finished with that video. So essentially, probably for a five minute video by 279 00:20:07.359 --> 00:20:11.359 front to start takes me ten minutes. Takes me ten minutes to do it, 280 00:20:11.279 --> 00:20:14.880 you know, and I prep time too, so I shouldn't just say 281 00:20:14.960 --> 00:20:17.480 like it's Oh, it's that easy. I mean some products, the Pfo, 282 00:20:17.519 --> 00:20:19.240 I've been using it for a long time. I know everything about it. 283 00:20:19.359 --> 00:20:22.799 I can walk it with my eyes closed. You know, the Sony 284 00:20:23.039 --> 00:20:26.759 Zv one that I just got. I had to do a little bit of 285 00:20:26.839 --> 00:20:29.799 research in you know, I'm learning it too, and that's a part of 286 00:20:29.880 --> 00:20:33.519 the video is, Hey, I just got this camera, I'm learning about 287 00:20:33.559 --> 00:20:34.759 it. One of the things I love about it, though, is this, 288 00:20:36.880 --> 00:20:40.400 you know, like the auto focus, the product feature where I can 289 00:20:40.519 --> 00:20:42.839 show a product in my cannon. US Harp didn't do that. You know. 290 00:20:42.960 --> 00:20:48.319 That's part of my experience and so, once again, these shoppable videos 291 00:20:48.960 --> 00:20:52.880 are me just sharing those types of experiences. So that's one way you can 292 00:20:52.920 --> 00:20:56.079 make some money, and in my opinion it's the most passive way on this 293 00:20:56.160 --> 00:21:00.480 platform to make money, is to create a bunch of these little shoppable videos. 294 00:21:02.160 --> 00:21:03.880 And you might say, well, man, how the world do you 295 00:21:03.960 --> 00:21:07.759 get product? And this is the part that I'm just diving into in the 296 00:21:07.880 --> 00:21:12.200 last couple weeks, is working with product manufacturers, brands, and so I'm 297 00:21:12.240 --> 00:21:15.480 reaching out to them. They're reaching out to me, and this is where 298 00:21:15.599 --> 00:21:18.559 going live kind of helps, because they can see me go alive and they 299 00:21:18.599 --> 00:21:21.880 can see my style and all that, and if they go hey, we 300 00:21:21.960 --> 00:21:25.000 won't work with this guy, they'll reach out to me. But there's you 301 00:21:25.039 --> 00:21:27.759 know, there's different groups, there's different Amazon Creator groups on facebook and a 302 00:21:27.839 --> 00:21:33.000 lot of these product companies in reps or in those groups and they'll just say 303 00:21:33.279 --> 00:21:36.359 hey, guys, we got this dog shock collar, like. Who wants, 304 00:21:36.519 --> 00:21:38.079 you know, who wants to take a look at it? Who thinks 305 00:21:38.119 --> 00:21:41.640 they can do a good job? And then you reach out and then that's 306 00:21:41.680 --> 00:21:47.240 where the negotiation starts. In the way I'm doing it is I am, 307 00:21:48.000 --> 00:21:49.319 you know, one I get the product for free, I get a ship 308 00:21:49.400 --> 00:21:53.079 to me for free, so that's really cool, but then I'm putting a 309 00:21:53.119 --> 00:21:56.960 little fee on top of that. So it depends on the product, depends 310 00:21:56.039 --> 00:21:57.960 on, you know, how long I think it will take me all that 311 00:21:59.039 --> 00:22:02.319 kind of stuff, and everybody's rates are probably varying. But that's another way 312 00:22:02.400 --> 00:22:03.720 to make money. One you get free product, you can show it. 313 00:22:03.839 --> 00:22:07.440 Now you have a stock of product. So when you go live or you 314 00:22:07.480 --> 00:22:11.440 want to create shoppable videos, now you have this influx of products coming in 315 00:22:11.680 --> 00:22:15.920 and you're working with these brands and you're getting paid to do the content, 316 00:22:17.160 --> 00:22:22.000 to create the video, but then you're also getting paid on the residual revenue 317 00:22:22.039 --> 00:22:26.000 that you're going to make off of the video for the next months years. 318 00:22:26.359 --> 00:22:29.880 I don't know how long it's going to be around, but I know I'm 319 00:22:30.039 --> 00:22:33.079 putting some work into it up front. That way it'll continue to pay out 320 00:22:33.160 --> 00:22:41.440 as we go and so this is really just an incredible platform that you know, 321 00:22:41.680 --> 00:22:45.119 once again for a kind of for me, it's still confusing because I 322 00:22:45.240 --> 00:22:51.759 am so used to niche products in niche markets that when I am doing a 323 00:22:51.920 --> 00:22:56.000 video about a microphone and then I'm doing a video about a backpack that that's 324 00:22:56.039 --> 00:23:00.359 a cooler, it like confuses my own brain. But I know that it's 325 00:23:00.759 --> 00:23:03.720 it's okay and I know that you can do it. So it feels a 326 00:23:03.759 --> 00:23:06.519 little weird at first, feel like you're taking shower with your with your clothes 327 00:23:06.599 --> 00:23:11.480 on, but is definitely paying off and I can and it's one of the 328 00:23:11.640 --> 00:23:15.640 only and I'm kind of rambling at this point, but I'm really passionate about 329 00:23:15.640 --> 00:23:18.519 it, especially right now because I'm so focused on it, but it's really 330 00:23:18.880 --> 00:23:22.720 the only type of content creation that I can say. You know, you 331 00:23:23.079 --> 00:23:26.599 get your following where you need to on one of these platforms, you get 332 00:23:26.640 --> 00:23:30.440 approved, you go live, you move into the shoppables, the next level. 333 00:23:30.480 --> 00:23:33.880 There's three different tiers, so you move into the second tier and it's 334 00:23:33.920 --> 00:23:37.559 the only thing that I can say that like you can literally make money. 335 00:23:37.559 --> 00:23:41.640 You can start it today and you can see money coming in tomorrow. And 336 00:23:41.720 --> 00:23:45.720 that's how it was for me when I started this and even now, just 337 00:23:45.880 --> 00:23:49.640 creating these new videos. I'm seeing them that happening. So I'm posting a 338 00:23:49.720 --> 00:23:55.519 video and a few days later it's getting rotated into these product pages and people 339 00:23:55.559 --> 00:23:59.559 are clicking on them and I'm getting compensated for it. So it's pretty it's 340 00:23:59.559 --> 00:24:03.519 pretty well. What's up, MONTY WEAVER? I see see Monte Weaver in 341 00:24:03.599 --> 00:24:07.480 the chat there. She said what's up? Creating daily just talking about Amazon, 342 00:24:07.559 --> 00:24:11.559 live brand deals, live selling, having some fun. I'm super, 343 00:24:11.880 --> 00:24:15.599 super focused on it right now and it was nice to get back to the 344 00:24:15.680 --> 00:24:21.759 states where I had like toads of stuff like this is, I don't know, 345 00:24:21.960 --> 00:24:25.200 like a bunch of stuff, and then I was selling some stuff and 346 00:24:25.319 --> 00:24:26.680 here's where you get to. We know, when you get into this, 347 00:24:26.920 --> 00:24:30.440 is you're like, Oh, you know what, I'm gonna sell that camera 348 00:24:30.640 --> 00:24:33.599 me still those three lenses in, and I look at my shoppa bulls page 349 00:24:33.680 --> 00:24:37.240 or my live stream page here or my whatever it's called, my creator page 350 00:24:37.279 --> 00:24:40.640 on Amazon, I'm like, Oh wait, I didn't do I didn't do 351 00:24:40.720 --> 00:24:45.400 shoppa bull so I literally sold a camera to somebody and I was like Hey, 352 00:24:45.640 --> 00:24:48.359 I'm sorry, I'm gonna ship it. I'm Gonnah, it is a 353 00:24:48.440 --> 00:24:51.079 daylight because I got to do something. I get to do a video for 354 00:24:51.240 --> 00:24:55.240 it or whatever. So anyway, but it's anything in your house, it's 355 00:24:55.359 --> 00:24:57.799 anything that you use. And I mean dude, probably one of the careators 356 00:24:57.839 --> 00:25:03.160 I follow that make the most amount of money that they've publicly posted, is 357 00:25:03.240 --> 00:25:07.039 someone who literally goes in their garage and like check out this drill. It 358 00:25:07.200 --> 00:25:12.279 does good. It's like not even that well produced. I mean, no, 359 00:25:12.599 --> 00:25:17.160 no, you know, not throwing rocks anybody, because you know my 360 00:25:17.279 --> 00:25:22.039 stuff isn't either. Like I'm I'm doing it quick, but it's literally with 361 00:25:22.279 --> 00:25:26.839 their phone, check out this drill in you know, it works great. 362 00:25:26.839 --> 00:25:30.920 I've had it for years. It's awesome. Totally recommend it. So it's 363 00:25:32.079 --> 00:25:37.839 that easy, which doesn't make any sense. And I see I see dial 364 00:25:37.960 --> 00:25:41.799 casters over here says what's good brand deal? Goat monty weaver, billy got 365 00:25:41.880 --> 00:25:45.400 that itch? Yeah, I do, I do have that itch. I 366 00:25:45.519 --> 00:25:48.200 am, I am, I'm filling it. And you know, when I 367 00:25:48.279 --> 00:25:51.160 was in Puerto Rico I didn't have any products. So that was the problem 368 00:25:51.960 --> 00:25:53.759 and I try to do I did do a brand deal, actually somebody that 369 00:25:53.880 --> 00:25:59.039 monty set me up with, and they sent it and I had it sent 370 00:25:59.200 --> 00:26:00.240 to me. They sent it to a friend of mine. I had a 371 00:26:00.319 --> 00:26:03.880 sent to me and just cost so much to get it shipped to me. 372 00:26:04.000 --> 00:26:07.000 Songs like, man, I can't do that. But now I'm back in 373 00:26:07.039 --> 00:26:11.000 the states. I got stuff on the way, working with some brands, 374 00:26:11.119 --> 00:26:15.920 working with some product manufacturing companies, and it has been a lot of fun. 375 00:26:15.160 --> 00:26:21.119 So over the next couple of weeks I am strategizing, you know, 376 00:26:21.279 --> 00:26:27.240 creating daily. I'm strategizing the Amazon live, the PODCAST, Youtube Channel and 377 00:26:27.480 --> 00:26:30.839 trying to figure out how to make this whole ecosystem kind of work together. 378 00:26:32.519 --> 00:26:36.400 Part of that is Chris Stones Fault. If that's Chris representing dial casters right 379 00:26:36.440 --> 00:26:40.920 now, because he came on my show and he said, you know how 380 00:26:41.119 --> 00:26:44.359 you know, like you could off camera. was like, basically a man, 381 00:26:44.599 --> 00:26:47.160 why are you not doing this on Amazon live every day as well? 382 00:26:48.039 --> 00:26:51.720 There's big opportunity and I was thinking about it the wrong way. I was 383 00:26:51.799 --> 00:26:53.920 thinking about it like hey, guys, Billy Thorpe here and I got the 384 00:26:55.079 --> 00:26:56.279 phone holder of the lifetime. You're not gonna want to miss it right now. 385 00:26:56.319 --> 00:27:00.319 For One thousand nine hundred and ninety, you know whatever, of which 386 00:27:00.400 --> 00:27:02.680 that is kind of my personality, like I kind of do love that. 387 00:27:02.920 --> 00:27:04.559 That cheesy. You know, I'd wear a wig and a hat and everything 388 00:27:04.599 --> 00:27:10.480 if I could and really have a lot of fun. But so I'm trying 389 00:27:10.480 --> 00:27:15.039 to figure out how to implement it in a tasteful way or create a whole 390 00:27:15.079 --> 00:27:18.200 new show or you know whatnot. So a lot of brainstorm and going on 391 00:27:18.480 --> 00:27:21.920 in my in my mind. So if any other creators are watching this and 392 00:27:22.000 --> 00:27:22.799 go hey, I got an idea for you. Want you try this, 393 00:27:23.799 --> 00:27:29.640 I will do it. But right now I'm mostly focused on shoppable videos. 394 00:27:29.759 --> 00:27:34.880 I think that's where, you know, majority of the long term hands off 395 00:27:36.119 --> 00:27:37.599 money is. I'm not going to say passive. I don't think anything is 396 00:27:37.640 --> 00:27:41.480 super passive. I think you still have to manage it and pay attention to 397 00:27:41.640 --> 00:27:45.119 it. Maybe you Redo it if it's not converting. You know, I 398 00:27:45.240 --> 00:27:48.640 think all that kind of stuff. But yeah, I'm having a lot of 399 00:27:48.720 --> 00:27:51.359 fun, if you haven't noticed, and I got a new studio space here, 400 00:27:51.559 --> 00:27:52.720 so that's been a lot of fun. So I got plenty of room 401 00:27:53.559 --> 00:27:59.079 getting ready to to put I got I get this desk. It's got castors 402 00:27:59.160 --> 00:28:02.400 on it, so I'm getting ready to mount everything to it and I get 403 00:28:02.440 --> 00:28:06.279 the sweet battery packs thing coming to so I'm going to know, I'm going 404 00:28:06.359 --> 00:28:07.839 to power it up, make it mobile so I can just push it around 405 00:28:07.920 --> 00:28:12.359 and do multiple different things. So it's a ton of fun. I've been 406 00:28:12.440 --> 00:28:15.720 having a lot of fun with it. I think there's a lot of opportunity 407 00:28:15.759 --> 00:28:18.799 and live selling and, like I said, this is one platform and there's 408 00:28:18.079 --> 00:28:22.200 other platforms that are coming out. You Know Ebay, I just mentioned that 409 00:28:22.559 --> 00:28:25.799 that they announced today, I believe it was today, that they are going 410 00:28:25.839 --> 00:28:27.680 to get into the game. I think Walmart's mentioned they're going to get into 411 00:28:27.720 --> 00:28:30.319 the game. So you could do it. You can do it in a 412 00:28:30.359 --> 00:28:33.880 fun way and I know when I know, when people think of live selling 413 00:28:33.039 --> 00:28:36.880 or selling in general, you know, there's like, Oh man, I 414 00:28:36.920 --> 00:28:40.680 don't want to sell anything like this is crazy. But think about this, 415 00:28:40.839 --> 00:28:45.920 like you're not really selling anything. You're literally making recommendations of stuff that you 416 00:28:45.160 --> 00:28:51.200 already use, that you already you know love, you already know, you 417 00:28:51.640 --> 00:28:55.480 already recommend to your friends. You're already telling your friends about the camera that 418 00:28:55.559 --> 00:28:59.440 you use or the lights that you use or the or the interface that you 419 00:28:59.640 --> 00:29:03.839 use. You're already making these recommendations. So why not, you know, 420 00:29:04.440 --> 00:29:10.720 put them all into video form and have them live on Amazon live and have 421 00:29:10.839 --> 00:29:15.039 them live on other platforms and send people there and say hey, you go 422 00:29:15.279 --> 00:29:18.039 check this out and then get paid. And it's, like I said, 423 00:29:18.079 --> 00:29:21.279 it's short form so they don't have to go watch a twenty five minute video 424 00:29:21.880 --> 00:29:25.880 of me talking about the Cannan USRP. Like I literally have a three minute 425 00:29:25.880 --> 00:29:29.880 eleven second video of talking about how I used it, why I liked it, 426 00:29:30.640 --> 00:29:33.240 what I didn't like about it, all those kinds of things, and 427 00:29:33.319 --> 00:29:36.079 I'm sending it. You know, that's it. And then I sent it 428 00:29:36.160 --> 00:29:38.319 and we'll see what it does. We'll see how it converts. But that 429 00:29:38.599 --> 00:29:41.400 is basically it. I just want to let you know what I was up 430 00:29:41.440 --> 00:29:44.200 to. I know people, a lot of people, are like, Hey, 431 00:29:44.200 --> 00:29:47.680 you're going to start doing daily again, and I'm working on it. 432 00:29:47.759 --> 00:29:51.039 Okay, it's not because I don't want to. But am I creating daily? 433 00:29:51.200 --> 00:29:55.799 You better believe. I mean creating product videos like crazy. I think 434 00:29:55.839 --> 00:29:59.759 it created twelve in the last three or four days. So it's been a 435 00:30:00.119 --> 00:30:03.400 of fun and I'm getting to do for more today. That's the goal. 436 00:30:03.079 --> 00:30:07.599 And I'm still doing podcasting. I'm still you doing brand sponsorship. Do you 437 00:30:07.640 --> 00:30:11.279 know brand deal? Sponsorship deals over there? I'm still doing a membership for 438 00:30:11.400 --> 00:30:17.160 my podcast. So this is just another stream of revenue. So you know, 439 00:30:17.240 --> 00:30:19.440 I think any business owner, any smart business owner, it's going to 440 00:30:19.519 --> 00:30:23.160 have multiple streams of revenue. You don't, I always say it like this, 441 00:30:23.319 --> 00:30:30.119 you don't really walk into Walmart or a big box store somewhere and they 442 00:30:30.200 --> 00:30:33.519 go, Oh, you know what, we still this one tshirt and that's 443 00:30:33.559 --> 00:30:36.359 it. And they get this big little store with one tshirt with a light 444 00:30:36.480 --> 00:30:37.440 on it and say, if you don't want that, too bad, we 445 00:30:37.480 --> 00:30:42.000 don't have anything for you. They figure out what people are consuming and what 446 00:30:42.119 --> 00:30:45.920 they can serve them with and what services and products, and so it's the 447 00:30:47.000 --> 00:30:49.720 same in our creator journey. If we want to monetize, sometimes we get 448 00:30:49.759 --> 00:30:52.200 to look and say, okay, what is it that we can offer? 449 00:30:52.480 --> 00:30:59.960 Is it our expertise or our opinion about products on Amazon? Is it you 450 00:31:00.039 --> 00:31:04.319 know? Is it coaching? Is it's consulting, like, what is it 451 00:31:04.440 --> 00:31:08.640 that we can do as content creators to do what we want to do, 452 00:31:08.839 --> 00:31:11.920 which is create content, be in front of our camera, be in front 453 00:31:11.920 --> 00:31:17.279 of our microphone and helping other people? So, Mario Gears is how to 454 00:31:17.359 --> 00:31:19.799 billy. Did you make the move back to the states yet? Absolutely, 455 00:31:19.880 --> 00:31:23.480 Mario. Appreciate you jumping in a man. I did. We've been back 456 00:31:23.759 --> 00:31:27.960 for two three weeks. Three weeks, almost a month. I think two 457 00:31:29.000 --> 00:31:30.359 days will actually be a Mont. Two or three days will be a month. 458 00:31:32.599 --> 00:31:34.599 And we get we got home, we got sick, the whole family 459 00:31:34.680 --> 00:31:41.640 got wiped out. Then I think we're better for like a week and then 460 00:31:41.680 --> 00:31:45.920 we has a family come in and then during that family week, my dat, 461 00:31:47.039 --> 00:31:51.200 my wife and my son got sick. So yeah, that was crazy. 462 00:31:51.319 --> 00:31:56.000 So this has been like the first real week that we've all not been 463 00:31:56.119 --> 00:32:00.440 sick that we have been working and getting back into our routine and it's pretty 464 00:32:00.480 --> 00:32:06.240 tough and really, living in the states versus living on an island, life 465 00:32:06.319 --> 00:32:09.640 is much busier. For whatever reason. You know you're you're just doing more 466 00:32:09.720 --> 00:32:14.359 stuff, more opportunities, more social life, all that kind of fun stuff. 467 00:32:14.440 --> 00:32:17.640 So we are we are working our way back into into you know, 468 00:32:19.279 --> 00:32:22.559 normal, normal life, I guess we'll call it. But yeah, it's 469 00:32:22.559 --> 00:32:25.240 been a lot of fun and it was great journey and Puerto Rico is an 470 00:32:25.240 --> 00:32:29.960 amazing journey, which I need to actually do a video all about that because 471 00:32:29.960 --> 00:32:31.960 I think there's a lot of life lessons. You know, not only die, 472 00:32:32.000 --> 00:32:36.920 I lose sixty pound. I left sixty pounds on that island, but 473 00:32:37.000 --> 00:32:40.319 I learned a lot about perseverance and learn a lot about commitment. I learned 474 00:32:40.319 --> 00:32:45.359 a lot about being uncomfortable. I've learned a lot. I learned a ton 475 00:32:45.400 --> 00:32:49.799 of stuff that I need to I need to like share it, document it, 476 00:32:50.680 --> 00:32:54.200 not only for you guys, my friends, family, community all that, 477 00:32:54.359 --> 00:32:58.279 but really just for myself so I can get back and be reminded of 478 00:32:58.400 --> 00:33:01.640 the journey and what it meant to a US in our family. So anyway, 479 00:33:01.880 --> 00:33:05.279 it was. It was fun. It was a lot of fun, 480 00:33:05.960 --> 00:33:08.359 as you can imagine. But yeah, now we're back and rock and rolling. 481 00:33:08.480 --> 00:33:13.599 So montey weaver says congrats. Thank you, monty. I'm excited to 482 00:33:13.640 --> 00:33:15.880 be back. So let me know what events are going on around you, 483 00:33:15.960 --> 00:33:17.880 guys, if there's live stream events or podcast events. I didn't get to 484 00:33:17.920 --> 00:33:22.119 go to anything last year, not because I couldn't, but I just wanted 485 00:33:22.160 --> 00:33:27.440 to, you know, be there and be present in those moments that that 486 00:33:27.559 --> 00:33:30.319 I was there. So so it was good. But now now we're back 487 00:33:30.720 --> 00:33:34.519 and have a little bit more options. So, but all right, guys. 488 00:33:34.599 --> 00:33:37.200 Well, that is that's it for me. You know, hopefully this 489 00:33:37.279 --> 00:33:40.519 has been thirty three minutes or whatever of you know really inspiring you as a 490 00:33:40.559 --> 00:33:45.079 content creator that there is monetization to be made, there's money to be made, 491 00:33:45.119 --> 00:33:49.839 there's monetization strategies to be put together and it's literally just taking action. 492 00:33:50.000 --> 00:33:52.599 So you might be really, really early on in the process where you're like, 493 00:33:52.640 --> 00:33:55.799 okay, I need to grow social media account, I need to get 494 00:33:55.880 --> 00:34:02.200 qualified to get an Amazon live account, become an Amazon live creator, you 495 00:34:02.319 --> 00:34:05.960 know, and go work on that, like make that your goal and I 496 00:34:06.039 --> 00:34:08.239 had to do this like when I first started this journey, when Monty and 497 00:34:08.360 --> 00:34:13.039 Chris Giles want to we were Christ Joss told me about Amazon live and I 498 00:34:13.079 --> 00:34:15.199 started seeing them postal, you know, like we're on Amazon, check this 499 00:34:15.280 --> 00:34:20.199 out live selling. I'm like what is that? And so I literally spent 500 00:34:21.159 --> 00:34:27.239 like months, like three or four months, just focused on growing my instagram 501 00:34:27.679 --> 00:34:30.039 to enough to get it to where, you know, I would qualify for 502 00:34:30.199 --> 00:34:35.800 that. So Mario Gear says I'm doing a clubhouse talk about Tesla cyber truck 503 00:34:35.840 --> 00:34:40.199 at three PM pst today. That's cool, man, that's awesome. Maybe 504 00:34:40.800 --> 00:34:45.599 maybe should do it. And they saw this on Amazon call call of Tesla. 505 00:34:45.639 --> 00:34:49.599 So if you can get a tesla cyber truck and see if you can 506 00:34:49.760 --> 00:34:52.719 get paid for doing that. But all right, guys, with that to 507 00:34:52.760 --> 00:34:55.440 see it from me. I really appreciate you joining the live show. I'll 508 00:34:55.519 --> 00:35:00.760 be back, hopefully tomorrow. Tomorrow, Tomorrow. And monty asked me about 509 00:35:00.760 --> 00:35:02.559 Prime Da. I've been trying to get Monty, I know he's been under 510 00:35:02.559 --> 00:35:07.440 the weather a little bit, and in Chris Giles, to come on and 511 00:35:07.519 --> 00:35:10.480 talking about how are they prepping for Prime Day or prime days? I guess 512 00:35:10.519 --> 00:35:15.559 there's two prime days and maybe we can get them on in the next couple 513 00:35:15.840 --> 00:35:19.880 you know, next week or so, to see what's up with that, 514 00:35:20.119 --> 00:35:22.920 because I don't even really know how to prepare for Prime Day. It's an 515 00:35:22.920 --> 00:35:27.480 Amazon Creator. I've been an Amazon Creator during a Prime Day, but I 516 00:35:27.559 --> 00:35:30.280 didn't do anything with it, which was just silly. But anyway, that's 517 00:35:30.320 --> 00:35:34.000 another story for another day and if you're interested in that, be sure to 518 00:35:34.000 --> 00:35:37.760 follow the channel.
