WEBVTT 1 00:00:00.080 --> 00:00:05.639 Now here's center. We are really like you're listening to creating daily, there's 2 00:00:05.679 --> 00:00:08.800 something wrong with you. You know that because you and I are like a 3 00:00:08.880 --> 00:00:12.480 mullet. It is the is the business. So he's the front part of 4 00:00:12.519 --> 00:00:16.000 the haircut and then I'm the party in the back. I think they're hilarious. 5 00:00:16.399 --> 00:00:22.559 Speaks to me. It's like he's saying what I'm thinking. All right, 6 00:00:22.600 --> 00:00:25.960 what is up everybody? Welcome back to another episode of creating daily. 7 00:00:26.120 --> 00:00:30.199 I'm your host, Billy Thorpe, and today is money Monday and I got 8 00:00:30.239 --> 00:00:34.359 my friend Monty weaver coming on it just a few minutes to talk about live 9 00:00:34.399 --> 00:00:36.520 selling. They might be like, what the heck is that? How do 10 00:00:36.560 --> 00:00:38.640 I get signed up all this fun things? We're going to talk about all 11 00:00:38.679 --> 00:00:42.200 that stuff and probably more, because monty and I both really like to make 12 00:00:42.240 --> 00:00:45.560 money with our content and talk about how to and brainstorm and all this kind 13 00:00:45.560 --> 00:00:48.359 of fun stuff. So we're going to be bringing him on and he is 14 00:00:48.439 --> 00:00:52.399 incredible guy, live streamer, Youtuber, I think, maybe even starting a 15 00:00:52.439 --> 00:00:55.000 podcast. That's in the rumor mill. I think I got that right, 16 00:00:55.000 --> 00:00:58.320 but we'll check in with him in just a few minutes and bring him on 17 00:00:58.359 --> 00:01:02.359 the show what is always. I got a couple of fun little segments, 18 00:01:02.399 --> 00:01:07.359 and so here's the first one. What it's to time with creating daily all 19 00:01:07.439 --> 00:01:11.159 right, so today's tool that I'm going to share with you because I got 20 00:01:11.200 --> 00:01:14.640 tool time as a little segment here, is hello audio. So if you 21 00:01:14.680 --> 00:01:19.560 are a podcaster and you're looking for a unique way to connect with your audience, 22 00:01:19.680 --> 00:01:23.640 or maybe you want to sell additional membership style content and you're not really 23 00:01:23.640 --> 00:01:26.719 sure where to host that content, I want to recommend that you go check 24 00:01:26.719 --> 00:01:30.599 out hello audio. I've been using it for quite some time. Actually ran 25 00:01:30.680 --> 00:01:34.040 a sponsorship workshop, audio only sponsorship workshop that I used to have available on 26 00:01:34.079 --> 00:01:40.519 hello audio, and then over the last couple weeks launched a another podcast for 27 00:01:40.680 --> 00:01:45.760 my fishing show that is locked behind closed doors. In hello audio is the 28 00:01:45.760 --> 00:01:49.680 host of those audio files and it's pretty cool because we have it all hosted 29 00:01:49.760 --> 00:01:52.079 on that platform. We can still get the analytics, we can still see 30 00:01:52.079 --> 00:01:56.000 who's listening and in all that kind of stuff, we can manage subscriptions if 31 00:01:56.000 --> 00:01:59.280 we desire to do that. But how we use it is we just use 32 00:01:59.359 --> 00:02:02.840 the mbed code and embed it on our membership website so that is really cool. 33 00:02:02.840 --> 00:02:07.560 So we have video through a vimeo pro account and then we also have 34 00:02:07.680 --> 00:02:10.240 hello audio for the audio portion. Now, one of the really cool things 35 00:02:10.280 --> 00:02:15.479 about this platform is if you wanted to, you can just deliver that content 36 00:02:15.560 --> 00:02:21.240 right to your listeners phone and it's still a private feed. So when they 37 00:02:21.280 --> 00:02:24.960 subscribe to your platform, there's different ways to set it up or your membership, 38 00:02:25.000 --> 00:02:30.000 then you can deliver that content right to their phone on their podcast player 39 00:02:30.039 --> 00:02:34.159 that they're already listening on. So if that's apple or spotify or wherever, 40 00:02:34.800 --> 00:02:37.879 you can do that. So really, really powerful platform and there's a total 41 00:02:38.159 --> 00:02:39.560 plethor of other things. Actually have a podcast. You should go check it 42 00:02:39.560 --> 00:02:44.560 out now. Anyway, you can go to creating daily dot live and go 43 00:02:44.639 --> 00:02:47.240 to I think it's like gear and recommendations or something up in the up in 44 00:02:47.280 --> 00:02:51.520 the navigation bar, top navigation bar. Check it out. I do have 45 00:02:51.520 --> 00:02:53.439 an affiliate link, so if you do decide to do it, I get 46 00:02:53.479 --> 00:02:55.800 a little kick back off of it. So yeah, there you go. 47 00:02:57.000 --> 00:03:00.800 That's it. All right. Moving on Creator highlights. Still cooking necessary and 48 00:03:00.879 --> 00:03:07.439 no assembly required. It's got to be fuck all right. Today's creator highlight 49 00:03:07.520 --> 00:03:10.159 is brought to you by my friends over at onheet dit pro. Go check 50 00:03:10.199 --> 00:03:15.560 out one sheet. It's basically like a media kit press care on a crack. 51 00:03:15.599 --> 00:03:16.560 Well, they probably wouldn't want me saying that, but it is. 52 00:03:16.879 --> 00:03:22.479 It's amazing and they have built a really cool platform. Working on some new 53 00:03:22.479 --> 00:03:24.719 features. Just talked to one of the owners this morning, but right now 54 00:03:24.719 --> 00:03:29.599 they do have a prodirectory where you can be discovered and you can discover others. 55 00:03:29.599 --> 00:03:30.759 If you're looking for guests for your show or you want to be a 56 00:03:30.800 --> 00:03:36.120 guest on other people show, go set up a onesheet pro account. Has 57 00:03:36.159 --> 00:03:38.479 An auto affiliate program also. You can sign up for that. So when 58 00:03:38.520 --> 00:03:43.120 you share, people click on it, they go to the bottom, they 59 00:03:43.159 --> 00:03:46.919 buy, they get a onesheet subscription. You Get a commission on that as 60 00:03:46.919 --> 00:03:49.599 well. And then also it's a really cool ranking system. So the more 61 00:03:49.639 --> 00:03:53.360 you share your profile, the more you rise up in the directory. So 62 00:03:53.520 --> 00:03:55.919 is that directory grows, the more you share, the more you get shown, 63 00:03:57.000 --> 00:03:59.879 the more it elevates you and all that kind of fun stuff. So 64 00:03:59.960 --> 00:04:02.960 today's creator highlight goes to my friend John Pike. He's the podcast host of 65 00:04:03.039 --> 00:04:06.639 back in the cereal box. So if you think about a group of friends 66 00:04:06.639 --> 00:04:11.080 in their pajamas on a Saturday morning, eating a bull cereal, discussing pop 67 00:04:11.080 --> 00:04:15.000 culture than you've thought about back in the cereal box. And John is an 68 00:04:15.000 --> 00:04:17.839 incredible creator. He's been a podcast host since, I think podcasting started, 69 00:04:17.959 --> 00:04:20.839 or shortly after, I think, like oh five or something. He's an 70 00:04:20.879 --> 00:04:25.800 actor, he's a singer, he's an vince coordinator, he is a magician, 71 00:04:25.839 --> 00:04:28.920 like he is just a plethora of things. I hope to have them 72 00:04:28.959 --> 00:04:31.399 on the show sometime in the near future. But go check out back in 73 00:04:31.480 --> 00:04:34.800 the box. See back of the serial box. There we go, I'll 74 00:04:34.839 --> 00:04:39.759 get it right. Super Entertaining show. It's a live show that they repurpose 75 00:04:39.839 --> 00:04:43.839 to a podcast. So be sure to go check it out and support some 76 00:04:43.839 --> 00:04:46.560 of these creators that I mentioned on the show. All right, now, 77 00:04:46.720 --> 00:04:49.560 as always, I'm going to shut up. I'm going to bring my friend 78 00:04:49.560 --> 00:04:53.360 Monty. We were on. We're going to dive into what in the heck 79 00:04:53.439 --> 00:04:57.120 is live selling, why it's important and why should be paying attention. Mounty, 80 00:04:57.279 --> 00:04:59.839 what's on my man? How are you? What's going on, billy? 81 00:04:59.920 --> 00:05:04.600 I am on Billy's podcast. Man, like the world is perfect. 82 00:05:04.800 --> 00:05:08.680 Well, I don't know about perfect, but it sure is fun man, 83 00:05:08.759 --> 00:05:11.079 and so, by the way, I want to remind people to munch before 84 00:05:11.079 --> 00:05:14.839 we jump in. If you're listening and you want to ask a question, 85 00:05:14.920 --> 00:05:16.199 we are going to have a little QA session, so be sure to hit 86 00:05:16.279 --> 00:05:19.360 q Cole and ask your question. For watching over on Youtube. If you're 87 00:05:19.360 --> 00:05:23.519 watching over on bullhorn, they actually have a little question section, which I'll 88 00:05:23.519 --> 00:05:25.920 show you right now if you don't know where it's at. They have questions, 89 00:05:26.040 --> 00:05:28.199 they have a chat and they have a call in. So if you 90 00:05:28.199 --> 00:05:30.240 want to call into the show, you can do that as well. But 91 00:05:30.480 --> 00:05:33.800 anyway, enough of that stuff. Monty. What the heck, Dude, 92 00:05:34.000 --> 00:05:39.759 is live selling? Can you answer that for us? Yeah, live selling 93 00:05:39.879 --> 00:05:45.279 is essentially showing up on a digital platform, and right now video is the 94 00:05:45.319 --> 00:05:48.879 hot one to do it on, and you you literally provide value to an 95 00:05:48.920 --> 00:05:54.720 audience and you show them what products that you have and how they can actually 96 00:05:54.720 --> 00:05:59.920 purchase that in real time. So almost think QVC HS in how we see 97 00:06:00.199 --> 00:06:04.399 that on TV. Now we're actually seeing that on digital platforms like the Amazons 98 00:06:04.439 --> 00:06:11.319 of facebooks and some other platforms. Large big box stores or even beginning to 99 00:06:11.360 --> 00:06:16.240 tap into this aspect of selling live to their consumers. Yeah, so, 100 00:06:16.240 --> 00:06:19.079 so there you. You know, I think there's an interesting thing and I'm 101 00:06:19.240 --> 00:06:23.360 I'm a little bit familiar. I do not as much as I should be 102 00:06:23.399 --> 00:06:27.879 doing, so shame on me. But I do think it's interesting that people 103 00:06:27.920 --> 00:06:31.160 can get on their camera, on their phone, essentially, like that's how 104 00:06:31.160 --> 00:06:35.120 easy it is, with their headphones on, and say, Oh, hey, 105 00:06:35.319 --> 00:06:40.079 check out, these are pods. Blah Blah, blah, Blah Blah. 106 00:06:40.120 --> 00:06:44.800 Here's a purchase league and people purchase them. So some people, you 107 00:06:44.839 --> 00:06:46.800 know, when I tell people about live selling, they go, man, 108 00:06:46.800 --> 00:06:47.720 that's kind of like a little Corny, like are you like, Hey, 109 00:06:47.879 --> 00:06:51.720 Billy Thorpe, here with the with the thing? But there's really creative ways 110 00:06:51.759 --> 00:06:55.079 to do it, man. It's I know, I know you've done it 111 00:06:54.839 --> 00:06:59.759 in a pre creative way, not just the the all seller. So yeah, 112 00:06:59.879 --> 00:07:02.480 what's some of your strategies when it comes to like presenting, because I 113 00:07:02.480 --> 00:07:05.000 think that might be a question people going. Now I'm done, I'm hitting 114 00:07:05.000 --> 00:07:09.839 to stop button on this show. Yeah, if I was just jumping into 115 00:07:09.879 --> 00:07:13.759 life selling, I would properly think that, but actually being in the space, 116 00:07:13.879 --> 00:07:16.279 you understand that there's more to it than just okay, just hey, 117 00:07:16.319 --> 00:07:19.399 go buy this product because it's great and it comes to all these colors. 118 00:07:19.439 --> 00:07:24.199 So when I got started on Youtube, billy, Youtube was a platform where 119 00:07:24.240 --> 00:07:28.959 you create videos and you literally would explain to people how to use things or 120 00:07:29.000 --> 00:07:32.079 how things just work, and people get a lot of value in it and 121 00:07:32.279 --> 00:07:38.800 they end up going to buy the recommendations or what you're featuring on those videos, 122 00:07:38.839 --> 00:07:42.360 and so that's the same way that I think about live shopping, is 123 00:07:42.399 --> 00:07:46.120 I'm literally doing the exact same thing, is just showing people value on different 124 00:07:46.120 --> 00:07:49.800 products that I own that I talked about. Use cases where it's not so 125 00:07:49.879 --> 00:07:55.519 much go buy this right now because it's on sale, but here's an item 126 00:07:55.560 --> 00:07:58.800 that you guys might find value from and if you do, this is how 127 00:07:58.800 --> 00:08:03.639 you can purchase it. So the Creator economy that we're now all a part 128 00:08:03.720 --> 00:08:09.199 of that allows us to have some freedom on how we're explaining different products. 129 00:08:09.199 --> 00:08:13.759 So I think of it as another way of delivering value to an audience, 130 00:08:13.879 --> 00:08:18.519 just an aspect of they can actually purchase it. amediately versus, Hey, 131 00:08:18.600 --> 00:08:22.319 go click on the link in my bio or description and then going to a 132 00:08:22.360 --> 00:08:24.720 site to purchase it. If you want it, you can actually get it 133 00:08:24.839 --> 00:08:28.160 right now in real time. So, man, I love that you said 134 00:08:28.199 --> 00:08:31.519 something that this is how I kind of because when I first heard about, 135 00:08:31.560 --> 00:08:33.799 and we'll just talk about like Amazon, for instance, what I heard about 136 00:08:33.799 --> 00:08:39.039 Amazon live, the influencer program one, I'm like throw up in my mouth, 137 00:08:39.759 --> 00:08:41.679 but then when I like really saw what was going on, it is 138 00:08:41.679 --> 00:08:46.600 more of that recommendation revenue, same as affiliate marketing, which is what you're 139 00:08:46.639 --> 00:08:50.000 talking about on Youtube. It's like hey, go click this now, go 140 00:08:50.039 --> 00:08:52.759 click this now, I'll go click that, versus they just click this one 141 00:08:52.840 --> 00:08:58.080 link that's under my under my picture, and buy. So, like, 142 00:08:58.240 --> 00:09:01.559 what is it? Is it safe to say that like Amazon and some of 143 00:09:01.559 --> 00:09:05.919 these other big box stores are trying to I mean was their idea? And 144 00:09:05.960 --> 00:09:09.960 I know you're you've been in this Amazon program for a while, so maybe 145 00:09:09.960 --> 00:09:11.919 you can speak to it, but was it like hey, why are people? 146 00:09:11.000 --> 00:09:13.799 Are we sending people to Youtube to learn about our products and then come 147 00:09:13.799 --> 00:09:18.000 over here and buy, like let's just create a youtube for our own stores. 148 00:09:18.039 --> 00:09:20.320 That what they're doing? Yeah, I think they. I think a 149 00:09:20.360 --> 00:09:24.840 lot of these couples are seeing what this word influencer can really mean and I 150 00:09:24.879 --> 00:09:30.559 think the word influencer now is not becoming as one of those negative words as 151 00:09:30.639 --> 00:09:33.399 much as it was before, because it was more so, Hey, this 152 00:09:33.440 --> 00:09:37.279 person, they're going to wear this outfit. You know they're getting paid and 153 00:09:37.320 --> 00:09:39.080 they're just going to make sure they get sales based off of this, where 154 00:09:39.519 --> 00:09:45.679 now it's how can we get everyday people to talk about the things they actually 155 00:09:45.720 --> 00:09:48.759 like? So if we can get the everyday person to show up on live 156 00:09:48.879 --> 00:09:52.720 camera and talk about these things, their audience is probably going to be more 157 00:09:52.720 --> 00:09:58.679 inclined to actually go and purchase it rather than we just we just take the 158 00:09:58.720 --> 00:10:03.799 traffic from all these other sources like a like a youtube or facebook or twitter. 159 00:10:03.840 --> 00:10:09.720 Go Click the link where live shopping allows people to like really engage in 160 00:10:09.799 --> 00:10:15.399 that conversation as well. So I think the big box source of understood how 161 00:10:15.440 --> 00:10:20.879 they can actually use consumers, their own clients and even their own employees to 162 00:10:20.000 --> 00:10:24.799 show up on social media and present the different products that they have to offer 163 00:10:24.919 --> 00:10:30.440 in a way that's not as sales the as it used to eat. Now 164 00:10:30.480 --> 00:10:35.039 there are some people that make it salesy, but the ones that love to 165 00:10:35.080 --> 00:10:39.919 engage with their audience and build community around showing the value of the things that 166 00:10:39.960 --> 00:10:43.200 they're talking about. I think that's what the the companies that are having their 167 00:10:43.240 --> 00:10:48.919 early success are really tapping into. Yeah, man, I think you know 168 00:10:48.960 --> 00:10:52.799 one thing that you sit there and that I think people should really highlight. 169 00:10:52.799 --> 00:10:56.159 When you think about live selling, it is not hey, this company just 170 00:10:56.159 --> 00:11:00.000 sent me a bunch of stuff and wants me to promote it, or because 171 00:11:00.000 --> 00:11:03.159 I have a lot of followers, but it literally is the stuff around your 172 00:11:03.200 --> 00:11:05.000 house. And this is what really kind of confuses me, man, because 173 00:11:05.240 --> 00:11:11.039 I'm really like this niche podcaster who's really built a brand of like salt water 174 00:11:11.120 --> 00:11:15.399 fishing on the coast of North Carolina with my partner, and then all of 175 00:11:15.399 --> 00:11:18.440 a sudden I discover Amazon live and I'm like curious. I mean your facebook 176 00:11:18.480 --> 00:11:20.559 group and I'm like all right, so what can I you know? I 177 00:11:22.000 --> 00:11:24.759 just talked about products. I just talked about microphones and mines and cameras and 178 00:11:24.799 --> 00:11:28.120 you guys, I know many, talk about anything. I'm like make any 179 00:11:28.240 --> 00:11:33.000 doesn't make sense to me, like how am I going to build this audience? 180 00:11:33.039 --> 00:11:35.600 But the truth is I don't even need an audience to make worry. 181 00:11:35.759 --> 00:11:39.840 I make money every day, no audience and very little amounts of work. 182 00:11:39.879 --> 00:11:43.679 So let's let's dive into that. Man, can you and you can. 183 00:11:43.720 --> 00:11:46.120 I Guess Amazon live might be the platform we talk about the most, and 184 00:11:46.200 --> 00:11:48.559 sis some one that we're both familiar with. But if you know of others 185 00:11:48.639 --> 00:11:52.360 you want to share, sure we kind of walk us through that, like, 186 00:11:52.360 --> 00:11:56.159 because it's a brain. I mean it messes my brain up to think 187 00:11:56.240 --> 00:11:58.639 like I can talk about anything. Yeah, it's weird. Maybe maybe tours 188 00:11:58.639 --> 00:12:01.600 the and who get everybody listen all the way throughout. I'll put out some 189 00:12:01.639 --> 00:12:05.480 other platforms that are on the rise that I think people should pay attention to. 190 00:12:07.000 --> 00:12:09.600 But yeah, no audience needed, and I think when I got started 191 00:12:09.639 --> 00:12:13.000 creating content, that was one of the things that you had to do, 192 00:12:13.120 --> 00:12:16.399 was build an audience, because you can't sell anything if you have nobody to 193 00:12:16.440 --> 00:12:18.759 sell it to. So you had to spend all this time trying to curate 194 00:12:18.840 --> 00:12:22.159 an audience. How do I get them to show up? How do I 195 00:12:22.159 --> 00:12:26.519 get consistent and showing up? What will attract them to show up? And 196 00:12:26.559 --> 00:12:28.399 then, once they actually show up, how can I deliver value? Do 197 00:12:28.440 --> 00:12:31.480 I need to go live for hours a day? Do I need to just 198 00:12:31.519 --> 00:12:37.519 do a social media post where with live selling, the customers are literally on 199 00:12:37.559 --> 00:12:43.840 their platforms, and so we talked about Amazon live and Amazon in general. 200 00:12:43.840 --> 00:12:48.519 How often are we on the Amazon platform buying something? I know I'm literally 201 00:12:48.600 --> 00:12:52.279 on it right now looking for something to go along with this tripod that I 202 00:12:52.320 --> 00:12:56.879 just ordered from Amazon two days ago. So I'm already end the buyer mode. 203 00:12:58.039 --> 00:13:01.840 And when you go to these platforms and you scroll and you happen to 204 00:13:01.840 --> 00:13:07.120 see someone talking about the very thing that you're interested in buying, it allows 205 00:13:07.159 --> 00:13:09.120 you to interact with that person and say, Hey, is this a good 206 00:13:09.159 --> 00:13:13.080 product, rather than even having the scroll all the way down to the review 207 00:13:13.120 --> 00:13:16.799 section, or maybe you did see a review that you don't quite have a 208 00:13:16.799 --> 00:13:20.360 full understanding of what that product can do, you can literally ask the person, 209 00:13:20.440 --> 00:13:22.840 Hey, can this do this? Does it work with this, and 210 00:13:22.879 --> 00:13:28.200 they can interact right back with you and help that purchasing decision. So it's 211 00:13:28.320 --> 00:13:33.679 really been a official for a brand to have someone that knows about their product 212 00:13:33.720 --> 00:13:35.679 and say yeah, you can use it with this. Oh No, don't 213 00:13:35.799 --> 00:13:39.120 use it with that, that's not going to be compatible. Here's another recommendation 214 00:13:39.679 --> 00:13:45.000 and you have no audience and then all of a sudden you have an audience 215 00:13:45.080 --> 00:13:50.200 because the platform is bringing someone to make a decision, and it's pretty amazing 216 00:13:50.279 --> 00:13:56.519 to see this, this shift in how you can show up on social media 217 00:13:56.559 --> 00:14:01.320 literally with no subscribers, no followers, and make money from it talking about 218 00:14:01.360 --> 00:14:05.799 the things that you already liked talking about any way and the things you already 219 00:14:05.840 --> 00:14:09.639 use. Pretty cool concept and what we're moving into. Yeah, man, 220 00:14:09.840 --> 00:14:13.440 and it's almost one of those things where I'm like, Gosh, this is 221 00:14:13.480 --> 00:14:16.840 so this is too good to be true. And like when you and Chris 222 00:14:16.919 --> 00:14:20.000 Giles and a couple other guys were, you know, like sharing in sin. 223 00:14:20.120 --> 00:14:24.759 Hey, here's what we're doing on Amazon live, I was just blood. 224 00:14:24.799 --> 00:14:26.720 I still am, Dude. I still am every day. It's one 225 00:14:26.720 --> 00:14:31.600 of my morning routines after I'm as I'm having my coffee, instead of reading 226 00:14:31.639 --> 00:14:35.720 the paper, I'm checking some analytics and checking Amazon. And you know, 227 00:14:35.759 --> 00:14:39.600 every day my partner and night, my mud my buddy and I, who 228 00:14:39.600 --> 00:14:41.840 are partnered on Amazon, are like this is insane, man. We're like 229 00:14:43.120 --> 00:14:48.399 literally making money every day. And so on the Amazon platform there's a like 230 00:14:48.480 --> 00:14:52.480 probably two or three different monetization strategies that I can think about. But before 231 00:14:52.519 --> 00:14:56.759 I jump into that, this how long can we expect this kind of stuff 232 00:14:56.799 --> 00:15:01.639 to happen? You think these companies are doing this for over or what's the 233 00:15:01.639 --> 00:15:05.799 history of life selling? Yeah, that's interest. Think we've seen live streaming, 234 00:15:05.960 --> 00:15:09.799 our life selling rather, for a long time on TV at Hsin and 235 00:15:09.879 --> 00:15:13.200 QBC. Those are the two power players and they have not gone away and 236 00:15:13.320 --> 00:15:18.399 as we see the bigger companies, I think they are going to be the 237 00:15:18.440 --> 00:15:22.960 ones that have really helped drive this for a long, long time that we've 238 00:15:22.000 --> 00:15:26.200 seen the evolution of social media as it was more so just posting with text 239 00:15:26.279 --> 00:15:31.679 and just images, and then when live streaming really came about in two thousand 240 00:15:31.679 --> 00:15:35.840 and sixteen is really when I tapped into live streaming on social media, we 241 00:15:35.840 --> 00:15:41.120 didn't even really see what it was possible, what was capable of doing. 242 00:15:41.200 --> 00:15:43.879 And now, more so, we can see. Okay, not only are 243 00:15:43.960 --> 00:15:50.360 the consumers tapping into live streamings, but businesses are bringing it into their their 244 00:15:50.480 --> 00:15:54.559 infrastructure, and I so I think it will be here for a while because 245 00:15:54.679 --> 00:15:58.279 when you have a platform like an Amazon, or I'll let one slip out 246 00:15:58.320 --> 00:16:03.519 the bag right now, like a Walmart that we know name recognition, wise 247 00:16:03.720 --> 00:16:07.120 are bringing in live video into their platforms they're not going to invest a whole 248 00:16:07.120 --> 00:16:11.519 bunch of money to not see a return on that. Yeah, and if 249 00:16:11.519 --> 00:16:14.679 they do start to receive your see a return on that, they're definitely going 250 00:16:14.679 --> 00:16:18.600 to continue to tap into it, because I even think now, billy like 251 00:16:18.679 --> 00:16:22.279 I, me and my wife, we buy our food online and like have 252 00:16:22.360 --> 00:16:25.759 it delivered to the house versus going to the store. And I used to 253 00:16:25.759 --> 00:16:27.840 work in a grocery store for six years, so I it's not nothing for 254 00:16:27.840 --> 00:16:32.159 me to go walk into a grocery store. But we're just saying things just 255 00:16:32.320 --> 00:16:37.919 change and being able to make a decision based off someone you trust, essentially, 256 00:16:37.960 --> 00:16:41.159 because that's what these influencers are. There are more. They're not just 257 00:16:41.240 --> 00:16:45.039 influencers now, but they're also community leaders, and if you trust the person 258 00:16:45.120 --> 00:16:49.480 that is recommending a product to you, then you're probably going to up make 259 00:16:49.519 --> 00:16:55.360 that decision faster, and that is something that companies all one. It's speed. 260 00:16:55.639 --> 00:16:57.480 You know, Amazon Prime, like I look for products. Hey, 261 00:16:57.519 --> 00:17:02.759 how fast can this get to my doorstep as well? So I think it'll 262 00:17:02.799 --> 00:17:04.319 be here for a little while. Yeah, man, I love the you 263 00:17:04.359 --> 00:17:07.039 know, you kind of brought that all together, because it's not just like 264 00:17:07.079 --> 00:17:11.960 shopping online or selling online, but it's I mean it's it is every it's 265 00:17:11.960 --> 00:17:15.880 everyday life. It's like men the convenience, the convenience of that, and 266 00:17:15.920 --> 00:17:18.920 I think that also plays into the convenience of me learning, like I don't 267 00:17:18.960 --> 00:17:22.640 have to go watch twenty youtube videos and ask questions in the comments and way 268 00:17:22.640 --> 00:17:25.799 in do all that. And I'm not, I'm not poopooed on that, 269 00:17:25.799 --> 00:17:26.799 because I've learned a lot from you. Tell me. I go to Youtube 270 00:17:26.880 --> 00:17:33.279 University every day and learn something new and inquire in the comments. But definitely 271 00:17:33.319 --> 00:17:37.119 when it comes around to products, especially if you're an expert in I mean 272 00:17:37.160 --> 00:17:40.880 anything, Dude. I'm thinking like from a microphone to a cheese greater, 273 00:17:40.960 --> 00:17:42.960 like you can literally get on there. And so for some of you all 274 00:17:42.960 --> 00:17:48.400 who are creators, you might podcast, he might live stream, you know, 275 00:17:48.440 --> 00:17:51.160 or whatever, or you might work at a grocery store, but you 276 00:17:51.240 --> 00:17:53.920 might really love cooking and have all these cooking utensils and all these roasters and 277 00:17:53.920 --> 00:17:56.680 all the stuff. I do. I don't know. I think about cooking, 278 00:17:56.720 --> 00:17:59.880 so I should have picked a different topic. But you can literally bring 279 00:18:00.000 --> 00:18:02.920 those products on and say hey, check this out, here's what this does. 280 00:18:02.920 --> 00:18:04.319 Her's as works. Is why I like, here's what I don't like, 281 00:18:04.599 --> 00:18:08.880 and give those honest, you know, feedback, honest reviews in the 282 00:18:08.960 --> 00:18:12.400 longevity, man, like this has been going on in different countries for a 283 00:18:12.440 --> 00:18:18.240 hot minute. Like yeah, like whole streets of people right overseas, man, 284 00:18:18.279 --> 00:18:22.839 this is huge. I mean there's stories of people literally bringing in a 285 00:18:22.880 --> 00:18:27.039 million dollars in their live streams and generated revenue. And if you have someone 286 00:18:27.079 --> 00:18:32.119 that's capable of showing up on camera and talking about your product, you know, 287 00:18:32.119 --> 00:18:33.960 if you're a branding you have someone talking about your product and they're generating 288 00:18:34.039 --> 00:18:40.519 dad amount of all you. I mean that's that's like we've never seen. 289 00:18:40.559 --> 00:18:42.319 You're not going to do that, just, you know, doing a recorded 290 00:18:42.400 --> 00:18:45.880 video, but when all the friends start to gather around it, like hey, 291 00:18:45.880 --> 00:18:49.440 everybody starts to share, everybody starts to Tweet, you create this buzz 292 00:18:49.480 --> 00:18:53.200 and real time and, like you said, Bill, yeah, it's lives 293 00:18:53.200 --> 00:18:57.359 shopping and life selling has been a thing overseas and it's starting to really make 294 00:18:57.400 --> 00:19:00.200 its way here in the US. Yeah, man, I think it's a 295 00:19:00.240 --> 00:19:04.559 cool opportunity for creators, and specially multi hyphen creators like your youtube or your 296 00:19:04.599 --> 00:19:07.759 podcast, your launch a podcast. I think I said it, but you 297 00:19:07.839 --> 00:19:11.480 working on it that I'm working on it. I'm working on it. It's 298 00:19:11.559 --> 00:19:17.759 having friends like you that make us make these type of decisions about launching podcasts. 299 00:19:18.079 --> 00:19:22.359 It's just another it's another avenue, another stream of revenue, another stream 300 00:19:22.400 --> 00:19:26.960 out. So all right, man. So we've kind of talked a little 301 00:19:26.960 --> 00:19:30.640 bit about the you know, being a creator and you can go live and 302 00:19:30.680 --> 00:19:33.519 you can sell. So I bet some people probably going, all right, 303 00:19:33.559 --> 00:19:34.799 that's great. Where do I go? How do I sign up? What 304 00:19:34.880 --> 00:19:37.440 do I need? Do I need a million followers? So can we? 305 00:19:37.519 --> 00:19:41.359 Let's walk through that process a little bit of like and we can stick with 306 00:19:41.400 --> 00:19:44.759 Amazon and then we can talk about others. But right now I think I'm 307 00:19:44.759 --> 00:19:47.240 I'm the most familiar with Amazon, so maybe I can inquire about it a 308 00:19:47.279 --> 00:19:49.200 little bit better. So, yeah, we get started. Yeah, so 309 00:19:49.279 --> 00:19:55.799 with Amazon, Amazon has an influencer program, literally a few Google Amazon influence 310 00:19:55.880 --> 00:20:00.599 or program and all walk you to their website and you submit for that process. 311 00:20:00.599 --> 00:20:04.039 Now they do actually require you to have some following on another platform. 312 00:20:04.119 --> 00:20:08.599 So that could be instagram, that could be twitter, youtube, so a 313 00:20:08.599 --> 00:20:12.880 following around twozero people. It's kind of what they're looking for and once you 314 00:20:12.920 --> 00:20:17.240 get approved, that's pretty much the approval process right there's that have a following 315 00:20:17.279 --> 00:20:21.440 on another platform. Once you get approved, then you're accepted in and you 316 00:20:21.480 --> 00:20:25.200 can begin to talk about the things you love. So you know, in 317 00:20:25.240 --> 00:20:27.880 my world I like to talk about tech products. There's people that are in 318 00:20:29.039 --> 00:20:32.200 the community that I have about Amazon live. They're, like you said, 319 00:20:32.200 --> 00:20:36.680 billy, their their chefs or cooks that we have people that are at Jim 320 00:20:36.799 --> 00:20:40.759 enthusiasts. So you have all types of people and it's one of the easiest 321 00:20:40.759 --> 00:20:45.920 platforms to go live on and begin to generate money. And then you also 322 00:20:45.000 --> 00:20:49.440 have these other platforms that are popping up, a lot of APPs that are 323 00:20:49.440 --> 00:20:55.759 dedicated to live shopping and they actually require no provol no prior approval, so 324 00:20:55.839 --> 00:20:59.680 you literally putting your name and your address and what do you want to talk 325 00:20:59.680 --> 00:21:03.559 about, what industry you're in, and they actually curate products from different brands 326 00:21:03.559 --> 00:21:08.400 to have you talk about on their particular platform. So they're different live shopping 327 00:21:08.400 --> 00:21:14.319 APPS. And and what I like to tell people is sometimes we overlook things 328 00:21:14.319 --> 00:21:18.400 are right in front of us and we might know Amazon as the big dog 329 00:21:18.440 --> 00:21:22.799 and live shopping or just online shopping in general. But there are all their 330 00:21:22.880 --> 00:21:26.720 smaller platforms that are doing the exact same thing, and so there's a lot 331 00:21:26.759 --> 00:21:32.480 of opportunity to begin to get into this specific part of the content creator economy. 332 00:21:32.960 --> 00:21:36.279 Yeah, man, I think that's huge. Well for me too, 333 00:21:36.279 --> 00:21:40.640 because I like one, I slept on Amazon live for like six months and 334 00:21:40.680 --> 00:21:44.079 then you guys kept posting some numbers and I'm like, how is this real, 335 00:21:44.240 --> 00:21:48.480 like you're these guys bullcrapping me, and then I sort of making products. 336 00:21:48.480 --> 00:21:49.960 And so you know, part of Amazon live is one. You have 337 00:21:51.000 --> 00:21:55.839 the live show, so that's that's one aspect of it of actually going live, 338 00:21:55.880 --> 00:21:59.720 and then you have shoppable videos. So we'll dive into that, man. 339 00:21:59.799 --> 00:22:03.799 What's your shoppable video strategy on Amazon? Yeah, so shoppa will videos 340 00:22:03.799 --> 00:22:10.039 are interesting because you ever go down Amazon and you look for more information to 341 00:22:10.440 --> 00:22:12.720 make a decision. Right, so we look at our five star reviews or 342 00:22:12.759 --> 00:22:18.279 the Onestar review, but then there's also videos on Amazon and he's could be 343 00:22:18.279 --> 00:22:22.359 really quick videos, like thirty seconds, or these could be twenty minute videos, 344 00:22:22.440 --> 00:22:26.680 and essentially they're talking about the product that we're looking to purchase. And 345 00:22:26.759 --> 00:22:30.599 so as a content creator. As an Amazon live influencer, you can create 346 00:22:30.680 --> 00:22:36.359 these videos on the website as well, and so they can be very beneficial 347 00:22:36.359 --> 00:22:40.440 to the buyer and if your video is part of the reason they are making 348 00:22:40.480 --> 00:22:44.880 this decision to make the purchase, that's another way for you to earn commission. 349 00:22:45.039 --> 00:22:48.640 I like the fact to billy, that it gives you a branding on 350 00:22:48.680 --> 00:22:52.119 the most powerful shopping platform in the world. So if someone sees your face, 351 00:22:52.200 --> 00:22:56.839 yeah, a lot of the time when they're making a decision around us, 352 00:22:56.920 --> 00:23:02.519 particular industry, you're automatically like the industry expert, even though you're just 353 00:23:02.559 --> 00:23:06.440 talking about things that you love. Like I'm not a MIC expert, like 354 00:23:06.519 --> 00:23:11.480 audio is not my best knowledge aspect. I like the video side. But 355 00:23:11.559 --> 00:23:15.319 if I talked about all the microphones that are on my shelf and you go 356 00:23:15.400 --> 00:23:18.200 to make a bark purchases decision, you see my face all over the place 357 00:23:18.359 --> 00:23:22.960 talking about microphones, then you're going to recognize me, not only on Amazon, 358 00:23:23.039 --> 00:23:26.200 but you may even go to other platforms and like who is this monty 359 00:23:26.319 --> 00:23:30.240 weaver guy? Maybe he knows a little bit something that I may want to 360 00:23:30.240 --> 00:23:34.319 follow him on other platforms and see what else he has to offer. Yeah, 361 00:23:34.319 --> 00:23:37.359 man, that's a good point. It's like this is a an audience 362 00:23:37.599 --> 00:23:44.000 growth opportunity as much it is a financial growth opportunity, and we've seen that. 363 00:23:44.079 --> 00:23:47.039 To Man, just like the little bit that we've done is like Oh, 364 00:23:47.079 --> 00:23:48.759 you know, like cool, now we're now our networked, and then 365 00:23:48.759 --> 00:23:53.599 we're network with other creators and now we're doing brand deals with people because of 366 00:23:53.599 --> 00:23:56.839 those creators. I mean not to me, you know, myself and Monty. 367 00:23:56.960 --> 00:24:00.240 Monty send me up with a brand and then we did bring and deal 368 00:24:00.279 --> 00:24:03.400 with them. It's pretty one of the biggest audio companies on the planet. 369 00:24:03.440 --> 00:24:07.799 Would just super dope. So that's, you know, a huge opportunity as 370 00:24:07.799 --> 00:24:10.799 well. So we have live video, we have shoppable videos and there's and 371 00:24:10.839 --> 00:24:14.440 guys listen their strategies to all these things. Okay, there's strategies to doing 372 00:24:14.480 --> 00:24:18.400 it the right way and and really, you know, leveling up and building 373 00:24:18.400 --> 00:24:22.640 the momentum. We're just kind of touching this very surface of it and, 374 00:24:22.759 --> 00:24:26.359 Montano, you get a great community of people that you're helping kind of walk 375 00:24:26.440 --> 00:24:27.559 through this, which we can talk about in a little bit. Don't let 376 00:24:27.599 --> 00:24:30.000 me forget. I said that to say don't let me forget because I definitely 377 00:24:30.039 --> 00:24:33.720 want to talk about it. But then the other aspect of it is the 378 00:24:33.720 --> 00:24:37.640 brand deals, which I think is where you have I mean, you crush 379 00:24:37.680 --> 00:24:40.720 it all three of these, but you've really crushed it with brand deals. 380 00:24:40.799 --> 00:24:45.240 So tell me about that monetization opportunity. Yeah, so with live selling, 381 00:24:45.279 --> 00:24:49.400 one of the things I didn't know was how big of an opportunity it was 382 00:24:49.440 --> 00:24:53.359 to collaborate with the companies that I was talking about now. I thought it 383 00:24:53.359 --> 00:24:57.559 would might be a possibility, but anytime you're on the forefront of something you 384 00:24:57.640 --> 00:25:02.680 don't really know everything. You can't tell the whole story before it happens. 385 00:25:02.759 --> 00:25:07.200 And what would begin to happen, billy, are companies would see me talking 386 00:25:07.200 --> 00:25:11.319 about their products, and what was even cooler was come other companies, their 387 00:25:11.359 --> 00:25:15.119 competitors would see me talking about their products, and so they would reach out 388 00:25:15.160 --> 00:25:18.119 and say, Hey, can you talk about our products? You know, 389 00:25:18.200 --> 00:25:22.359 can you talk about it for an hour? Can you talk about multiple products? 390 00:25:22.359 --> 00:25:29.759 So I've had all types of companies reach out to like dog leashes to 391 00:25:30.000 --> 00:25:33.839 bitch tank stuff, and I don't even know what some of these products do. 392 00:25:34.279 --> 00:25:37.599 So I don't work with every brand and company, but they see that 393 00:25:37.640 --> 00:25:42.240 there's not a lot of people showing up on live talking about their products, 394 00:25:42.279 --> 00:25:47.519 so they're looking for anybody and that's why I say the opportunity is really there. 395 00:25:47.559 --> 00:25:49.240 But there's a lot of companies that I do want to talk about their 396 00:25:49.279 --> 00:25:55.119 products, and so when those companies reach out, that brand deal collaboration makes 397 00:25:55.160 --> 00:25:59.880 a lot more sense for my personal brand because I'm able to not only show 398 00:26:00.000 --> 00:26:03.960 up on a live selling platform and talk about them, but I'm also able 399 00:26:03.000 --> 00:26:07.880 to use their products and my business outside of the life selling. I'm able 400 00:26:07.920 --> 00:26:11.920 to talk about on other social platforms and if they really want to get behind 401 00:26:11.960 --> 00:26:15.640 and make it a true brand sponsorship where they're financially being a part of it, 402 00:26:15.640 --> 00:26:19.960 it allows me to up the production value of the deliverable. So maybe 403 00:26:21.000 --> 00:26:26.160 I am able to post on instagram and twitter and let my other platforms know 404 00:26:26.440 --> 00:26:30.119 that I'm going to be showing up on a specific platform and they be they 405 00:26:30.160 --> 00:26:36.960 begin to get even a bigger reach and because that community influencer, that the 406 00:26:37.119 --> 00:26:41.160 tribe leader aspect I was talking about before, if they see me using a 407 00:26:41.160 --> 00:26:44.359 certain product, then chances are my community is going to start to use that 408 00:26:44.440 --> 00:26:47.680 product. Not because they saw me even on the live selling but maybe they 409 00:26:47.680 --> 00:26:51.759 just saw the instagram post and they were intrigued by that. So the brand 410 00:26:51.799 --> 00:26:55.160 collaboration, you know, can start off as live selling it, but it 411 00:26:55.200 --> 00:27:00.759 can really open up the doors to some bigger collaborations, especially people that are 412 00:27:00.759 --> 00:27:03.160 trying to grow their personal brands. Yeah, man, I think there's so 413 00:27:03.240 --> 00:27:06.759 key and it's so true. And you know, I know somebody had a 414 00:27:06.799 --> 00:27:10.240 really big corporation as multiple you know, it's one of those conglomorations where they 415 00:27:10.240 --> 00:27:14.559 own multiple brands, and so I reach out just to talk to him about 416 00:27:14.640 --> 00:27:17.640 the Amazon live career program one. They had no idea about it. So 417 00:27:17.640 --> 00:27:21.319 it's kind of a cool opportunity for me to educate them. But then too, 418 00:27:21.359 --> 00:27:23.119 I was curious because I'm like, what's the longevity? You know, 419 00:27:23.160 --> 00:27:27.079 I spend my time doing this, like, can I count on this for 420 00:27:27.119 --> 00:27:30.000 a long time? And so I said, Hey, well, what's the 421 00:27:30.079 --> 00:27:33.000 likelihood that you guys just hire a five person team to build a studio and 422 00:27:33.039 --> 00:27:36.359 do this? And they're like never, dude, like we're not in the 423 00:27:36.440 --> 00:27:41.000 media business. And so right in that moment I was like, all right, 424 00:27:41.079 --> 00:27:44.480 cool, this is an opportunity for creator like this is a real money 425 00:27:44.519 --> 00:27:48.920 making opportunity and I know, and you know, to from from reaching out 426 00:27:48.960 --> 00:27:52.359 to brands for different projects and podcasts and live shows and all this stuff, 427 00:27:52.440 --> 00:27:56.599 it's a hard it's a hard job, it's a heart it's a hard job 428 00:27:56.680 --> 00:28:00.279 to reach out, introduce yourself, build value all that stuff. But now 429 00:28:00.279 --> 00:28:03.839 you have this ginormous, or well, I should say multiple giant arms. 430 00:28:03.839 --> 00:28:07.559 Platforms are saying hey, creator, we love what you do. Here you 431 00:28:07.599 --> 00:28:11.640 go, log in, go live, share what you love, and then 432 00:28:11.720 --> 00:28:17.759 these brands of recognize you and call you, which once again blows my mind 433 00:28:17.920 --> 00:28:19.519 that this even had. I blows my mind that I wake up, you 434 00:28:19.559 --> 00:28:23.640 know, like once a week with somebody in my dms or inbox saying hey, 435 00:28:23.799 --> 00:28:26.119 we saw your you know, some of your stuff online, like we 436 00:28:26.160 --> 00:28:30.680 want to send you some product and similar to you some of that product. 437 00:28:30.720 --> 00:28:33.559 I'm like heck yeah, and some of them am like no, that I 438 00:28:33.559 --> 00:28:34.799 don't even want to. I don't know, it's going to take it too 439 00:28:34.920 --> 00:28:38.880 much space in my house or whatever, but dude, it's a real money 440 00:28:38.920 --> 00:28:44.440 making opportunity and so it just blows my mind. So some monster we've talked 441 00:28:44.480 --> 00:28:48.039 about kind of doing the live shoppables. Have that live engagement interaction, making 442 00:28:48.079 --> 00:28:52.880 that right now, decision pitch versus, you know Youtube, like Hey, 443 00:28:52.960 --> 00:28:56.319 let me ask some questions or whatever. So the buyers hot, they you 444 00:28:56.400 --> 00:28:57.640 sell it, they click on the thing, they buy it, you get 445 00:28:57.640 --> 00:29:02.240 a commission. We talked about shoppable videos where you just make the video, 446 00:29:02.440 --> 00:29:04.119 people can find it, watch it, finding on the product page. And, 447 00:29:04.200 --> 00:29:07.039 by the way, with Amazon you don't just get paid for the product 448 00:29:07.079 --> 00:29:11.039 you post, but get paid for products within that category if they watch your 449 00:29:11.119 --> 00:29:15.759 video and then shop around a little bit. So keep that in mind too. 450 00:29:15.799 --> 00:29:18.759 It's I've seen some crazy stuff get purchased in the same category. I'm 451 00:29:18.799 --> 00:29:22.640 like, you know what that is, same here, like I didn't even 452 00:29:22.720 --> 00:29:26.880 talk about that, but I got paid to talk about something else. Okay, 453 00:29:26.920 --> 00:29:29.920 cool, I'll take you. And I've done like the weird variety of 454 00:29:29.920 --> 00:29:33.559 stuff. I'm like this sure microphone to like my kids bounce house, like 455 00:29:33.759 --> 00:29:36.559 I think I paid that bounce house off already, like if I shouting to 456 00:29:36.599 --> 00:29:38.640 pay it off, I paid it off. Like I made that much money 457 00:29:38.680 --> 00:29:44.480 off that bounce house. And then and then we talked about brand sponsorship deals. 458 00:29:44.599 --> 00:29:48.480 Is there any other way to monetize these that I haven't that you haven't 459 00:29:48.519 --> 00:29:52.880 let the cut out the bag in my ear yet miss something. I think 460 00:29:52.960 --> 00:29:59.200 you hit on it all. But I think the brand sponsorship is so multifaceted 461 00:29:59.720 --> 00:30:04.720 where where you can take that even a step step deeper and even be a 462 00:30:04.720 --> 00:30:11.599 brand ambassador for a company. So we have our like a traditional brand sponsorship 463 00:30:11.680 --> 00:30:15.160 right where we might show up and talk about a product on three live streams 464 00:30:15.200 --> 00:30:19.200 and, you know, feature them and highlight them. But there's also this 465 00:30:19.319 --> 00:30:25.359 other level where you can really be the brand ambassador and maybe you're the ambassador 466 00:30:25.400 --> 00:30:29.200 for six months or year and not only do you shut up show up on 467 00:30:29.240 --> 00:30:33.440 a live selling platform, but you show up everywhere. You typically show up 468 00:30:33.480 --> 00:30:38.240 as that brand ambassador. So we're looking at microphones now. We've both worked 469 00:30:38.240 --> 00:30:42.400 with microphone company. So it's the easiest example. You know, I would 470 00:30:42.440 --> 00:30:48.079 show up like on your podcast being a brand ambassador for a particular microphone. 471 00:30:48.079 --> 00:30:52.039 I would go do my own weekly show using the same microphone. I would 472 00:30:52.039 --> 00:30:56.200 have product placement in the background of that microphone of that company, and so 473 00:30:56.319 --> 00:31:03.680 that collaboration is even more of an exclusive to exclusivity offer where you can charge 474 00:31:03.759 --> 00:31:10.559 more because you're only talking about the one brand that it denies you from talking 475 00:31:10.559 --> 00:31:12.039 about other brands, and so it allows you to, you know, a 476 00:31:12.119 --> 00:31:15.799 capitalize even more so. And it all started with the fact head in my 477 00:31:15.920 --> 00:31:21.599 case, they solve me talking about a different product altogether. So it goes 478 00:31:21.680 --> 00:31:26.240 from okay, live selling, this person can show up on camera, talk 479 00:31:26.319 --> 00:31:32.680 to an audience. Maybe they have good lighting, good cameras, good microphone, 480 00:31:32.720 --> 00:31:37.039 so they actually have a professionalism about them. So these things allowed you 481 00:31:37.119 --> 00:31:42.480 to really dive deeper into what the monetization part can really look like for you. 482 00:31:42.640 --> 00:31:47.160 So, yeah, you're going to make money from the affiliate commission and 483 00:31:47.240 --> 00:31:52.400 the shoppabile videos and actually be the products from the brand themselves. You know 484 00:31:52.519 --> 00:31:55.440 you can resell those and make your money back if you're no longer going to 485 00:31:55.480 --> 00:31:59.440 use a product actor certain amount of time. But then, yeah, how 486 00:31:59.640 --> 00:32:01.559 I got so many things to sell valley, but how can you also just 487 00:32:01.599 --> 00:32:05.720 go deeper and say hey, brand, I love you guys so much, 488 00:32:05.759 --> 00:32:07.640 I want to be an ambassador for your product, I want to go to 489 00:32:07.640 --> 00:32:14.359 a trade show and go lie from a trade show because we have the knowledge 490 00:32:14.400 --> 00:32:16.920 and the skill set to show up on live. So you know, life 491 00:32:16.920 --> 00:32:20.799 selling is life selling. But you that means you also just know how to 492 00:32:20.799 --> 00:32:22.920 show up on live video, which is a big deal and, like you 493 00:32:22.960 --> 00:32:28.200 mentioned, really some companies don't want to invest in an on air talent. 494 00:32:28.279 --> 00:32:31.599 They don't know how to do that, and so that's an opportunity for content 495 00:32:31.680 --> 00:32:37.559 creators to step in and offer this as an additional service and really be able 496 00:32:37.559 --> 00:32:43.960 to tap into monetizing again their personal brand. Yeah, man, Dude, 497 00:32:44.119 --> 00:32:45.680 so many ideas right there that you just do unpack them like, Oh yeah, 498 00:32:45.720 --> 00:32:49.119 I forgot. Like you sell your talent. You can go to that 499 00:32:49.240 --> 00:32:51.799 trade show, you can go hey, let's do a special event. Heys, 500 00:32:52.119 --> 00:32:54.279 interview everybody on your product team about a certain part. You know, 501 00:32:54.319 --> 00:32:58.599 like what I mean. You can do so many things as a content creator 502 00:32:58.599 --> 00:33:01.640 to create that content. And then the beauty of it is you still own 503 00:33:01.680 --> 00:33:05.759 that content. You yeah, purposes and you can put it on your Youtube 504 00:33:05.839 --> 00:33:09.640 Channel. That now we'll drive revenue eventually for some of us, eventually for 505 00:33:09.720 --> 00:33:13.920 me, I'm just looking at myself. I know you're yourtube channel questions. 506 00:33:14.000 --> 00:33:16.480 But quick story on that, Billy, is I work work with a brand 507 00:33:16.640 --> 00:33:20.799 and they reach out to me. They wanted me to talk about their live 508 00:33:20.880 --> 00:33:23.559 streaming software, because I talk a lot about about a lot about live streaming 509 00:33:23.599 --> 00:33:29.240 and different platforms. And when they reached out, they actually wanted me to 510 00:33:29.279 --> 00:33:31.839 do one video for them on my youtube channel and I didn't want to really 511 00:33:31.880 --> 00:33:36.559 do the video because there's just one video and I just knew my schedules. 512 00:33:36.640 --> 00:33:39.680 So I offered to do multiple videos for them and I offered to do it 513 00:33:39.720 --> 00:33:43.599 on their platform, but what they wanted me to do it was on my 514 00:33:43.640 --> 00:33:45.200 platform, and so I was like, well, that's going to cost a 515 00:33:45.200 --> 00:33:49.799 little bit more if I do it on my platform. So there are brands 516 00:33:49.799 --> 00:33:54.160 that are really once they see you on online, on these digital platforms, 517 00:33:54.279 --> 00:34:00.559 you can structure deals in your favor and you can also, like when you 518 00:34:00.599 --> 00:34:01.599 talk, I do the same thing, billy. Every time I'm talking, 519 00:34:01.680 --> 00:34:05.480 somebody's like, man, here's an idea of how we can structure a deal 520 00:34:05.519 --> 00:34:07.920 as the content creator, because you can structure a deal where you show up 521 00:34:07.960 --> 00:34:14.199 on their platform. We've seen people go live on Amazon on the branch channel, 522 00:34:14.280 --> 00:34:19.119 not just their personal channel, because maybe you don't get the qualifications to 523 00:34:19.159 --> 00:34:22.599 be the influencer, but you can actually work with the company go live on 524 00:34:22.639 --> 00:34:29.599 their brand page as their brand spokesman. So that's another opportunity for people that 525 00:34:29.639 --> 00:34:31.920 say I don't qualify. Well, if you really love the brand, Hey, 526 00:34:31.960 --> 00:34:36.719 brand, I'm great online here some of the work I've done in the 527 00:34:36.719 --> 00:34:39.559 past. I would love to go live on your Amazon page and talk about 528 00:34:39.599 --> 00:34:43.320 your products. There's so many ways of really tap into this, dude, 529 00:34:43.400 --> 00:34:45.599 that that is a great idea, because I have a lot of people reach 530 00:34:45.639 --> 00:34:50.079 out to me about Amazon live and they're like yeah, you know, I 531 00:34:50.159 --> 00:34:52.639 try to sign up as going to followers. I guess we'll go build my 532 00:34:52.639 --> 00:34:55.760 followership and then I'll come back. And I just got something to recommend to 533 00:34:55.840 --> 00:34:59.840 him, like, hey, reach out to those brands directly or create a 534 00:34:59.880 --> 00:35:02.800 couple of live streams about their products and then share it with them and say 535 00:35:02.840 --> 00:35:06.119 had love to do this more and do it on your page or do it 536 00:35:06.159 --> 00:35:08.159 on your Amazon page, or doing on your facebook group or your Youtube Channel. 537 00:35:08.239 --> 00:35:13.280 Like, dude, that is a killer idea, you know, because 538 00:35:13.280 --> 00:35:15.400 this is what we want to do. I mean, I don't know about 539 00:35:15.480 --> 00:35:19.360 you, I love products, I use products, and it's just another excuse 540 00:35:19.400 --> 00:35:22.239 for me to hit to go live button and show up and do what I 541 00:35:22.280 --> 00:35:24.800 like doing, like being a nerd and talking and being on camera and, 542 00:35:24.840 --> 00:35:28.360 you know whatever, maybe I'm narcissistic. I like looking at myself. I 543 00:35:28.360 --> 00:35:31.880 don't know. You know, it's a good time, and so this is 544 00:35:31.920 --> 00:35:37.079 another way to be able to express ourselves as a creator. That's a dude. 545 00:35:37.199 --> 00:35:39.480 That is a killer takeaway. I get to remember to clip that for 546 00:35:39.519 --> 00:35:43.400 our takeaways at the end of the week, so you can have a billy. 547 00:35:43.519 --> 00:35:45.880 Never say I didn't give you anything. You've helped me a lot, 548 00:35:45.920 --> 00:35:49.719 man, and you know, I've kind of seen your praises for a minute, 549 00:35:49.760 --> 00:35:52.280 but there was a brand I wanted to work with for a long time. 550 00:35:52.960 --> 00:35:57.000 Never in a million years thought I would ever work with this company, 551 00:35:57.039 --> 00:35:59.280 and then I was talking to monty about it and I said, man, 552 00:35:59.320 --> 00:36:01.039 I really you know them some of my top selling products and from this brand, 553 00:36:01.079 --> 00:36:04.440 and goes, oh, I know the lady. Let me, let 554 00:36:04.440 --> 00:36:07.639 me, let me send an email. So you got US connected, did 555 00:36:07.639 --> 00:36:09.840 a brand deal and you know, we're looking forward to doing some more stuff 556 00:36:09.840 --> 00:36:15.000 with those guys as well, and I think that is the power of what 557 00:36:15.079 --> 00:36:19.280 we're doing, building a great community and a community of creators. So, 558 00:36:19.320 --> 00:36:21.679 man, that gears me up. It tease me up to knock it over 559 00:36:21.760 --> 00:36:23.639 to you to say hey, tell us about your Creator community. How can 560 00:36:23.679 --> 00:36:29.880 people get involved, because we are literally scratching the surface of all this stuff 561 00:36:29.880 --> 00:36:31.519 and strategies and tips and tricks and all that kind of stuff. But I 562 00:36:31.559 --> 00:36:36.320 know you coach people on this and you have a community where you're sharing a 563 00:36:36.320 --> 00:36:37.440 lot of this, so please take a few minutes and tell us about it. 564 00:36:37.639 --> 00:36:42.639 Yeah, appreciability. Yeah, so, blueprint influencers Escay, the community 565 00:36:42.719 --> 00:36:46.239 I created really to share with people what I've learned and what I've been able 566 00:36:46.280 --> 00:36:52.280 to help other people do to monetize their digital content by working with brands and 567 00:36:52.320 --> 00:36:55.480 sponsors, because I got started in July two thousand and twenty was my first 568 00:36:55.599 --> 00:36:59.400 brand deal and I didn't really think of it as a brand dealt just thought 569 00:36:59.400 --> 00:37:01.480 a company want to send me some gear and I just create a video. 570 00:37:01.639 --> 00:37:07.239 And then I've learned over the course of these last couple of years what that 571 00:37:07.360 --> 00:37:10.360 really is, what I'm really actually doing on behalf of the brand, and 572 00:37:10.400 --> 00:37:15.639 so we really leaning into that and sharing with people how I get started. 573 00:37:15.679 --> 00:37:17.480 You know, whether you have no audience, and we've talked about different ways 574 00:37:17.559 --> 00:37:21.599 to do that. On here on the PODCAST, if you have no audience, 575 00:37:21.679 --> 00:37:23.639 or maybe you have a few thousand people and you didn't even really think 576 00:37:23.760 --> 00:37:28.360 that brand deals was a thing that you could do because you had to be 577 00:37:28.360 --> 00:37:32.000 a celebrity status. Well, that's not the case, because they need to 578 00:37:32.039 --> 00:37:37.519 create content and the brands don't necessarily know how to create content, pictures, 579 00:37:37.599 --> 00:37:44.159 videos and especially going live talking about their own products and services. So that 580 00:37:44.199 --> 00:37:49.320 community is geared around how to monetize what it is that you're doing on different 581 00:37:49.320 --> 00:37:52.039 platforms. I know, billy, you help a lot of people monetize with 582 00:37:52.039 --> 00:37:54.239 podcasts and so, you know, I'm glad you're part of that community as 583 00:37:54.320 --> 00:37:58.119 well to really focus in on, Hey, this is what it looks like 584 00:37:58.159 --> 00:38:01.880 to monetize on this particular platform, and that community is like really growing. 585 00:38:01.920 --> 00:38:07.559 So I'm excited to really have people be able to collaborate with brands that they 586 00:38:07.559 --> 00:38:10.880 really want to work with and being able to collaborate with those brands, get 587 00:38:10.960 --> 00:38:16.280 paid to do it and really generate additional revenue stream from it, because that 588 00:38:16.320 --> 00:38:22.079 is there's so much margin and working with the brand sponsor. You know, 589 00:38:22.199 --> 00:38:24.000 I just leave people with this one thing. If you work with a brand 590 00:38:24.000 --> 00:38:28.880 sponsor. It allows you to outsource a lot of the tasks that you don't 591 00:38:28.880 --> 00:38:32.440 need to do as creators, as people that work in your businesses. If 592 00:38:32.480 --> 00:38:37.519 you work with a brand, you can actually produce more, offsetting the cost 593 00:38:37.599 --> 00:38:43.159 of video editing, va for social media posting, reaching out for other collaboration 594 00:38:43.199 --> 00:38:46.280 products. So there's a lot that you can do by tapping into that brand 595 00:38:46.360 --> 00:38:52.960 deals and sponsorships and you're not creating more work for yourself, you're definitely being 596 00:38:52.960 --> 00:38:55.559 able to get a lot of your time back. And so yeah, that's 597 00:38:55.559 --> 00:39:00.559 what we do over their blueprint influences community and I'm excited right it as everybody's 598 00:39:00.679 --> 00:39:05.039 really tapping into that. Yeah, man, I love what you're doing over 599 00:39:05.039 --> 00:39:07.960 there and I think you know you and I run around the same circles and 600 00:39:07.960 --> 00:39:10.400 and try to help as many people as possible and and that's what it is 601 00:39:10.400 --> 00:39:13.559 to it's like getting in this commune. It's more than just like hey, 602 00:39:13.639 --> 00:39:15.199 let me teach how to do something, but it's let me get around other 603 00:39:15.280 --> 00:39:19.119 creators and it's kind of like, and I know you know this because your 604 00:39:19.199 --> 00:39:22.719 youtuber. You know it's like Mr Beast, for instance, like you know, 605 00:39:22.840 --> 00:39:28.239 Jimmy Donaldson, and his four five buddies got together really early on and 606 00:39:28.239 --> 00:39:30.800 they're like, okay, let's go out and try different stuff and come back 607 00:39:30.800 --> 00:39:32.519 and reports each other. And now he's the number one, you two are 608 00:39:32.599 --> 00:39:37.239 two thousand and twenty one, and so it's that type of community. To 609 00:39:37.239 --> 00:39:38.519 say in Monty, and I do this all the time, we swap notes 610 00:39:38.559 --> 00:39:40.960 all the time to say hey, what you know, what's working for you, 611 00:39:42.039 --> 00:39:44.760 what's not, blah, Blah Blah. You know, here's a brand 612 00:39:44.760 --> 00:39:46.559 deal, here might be a sponsor for you. You know, how do 613 00:39:46.559 --> 00:39:49.840 you start a podcast? How do you start? You know, live stream? 614 00:39:49.880 --> 00:39:52.880 What software you using? No, not everyone gets into that inner circle, 615 00:39:52.920 --> 00:39:55.760 but you know once you're there, you're there and I know you take 616 00:39:55.800 --> 00:40:00.280 care of your community Monty, just like that. And people seen your praises 617 00:40:00.320 --> 00:40:04.559 all day on different platforms I'm on, with creators saying how you know their 618 00:40:04.599 --> 00:40:07.360 life's been changed because of the information they're giving them, and you're the one 619 00:40:07.440 --> 00:40:10.440 taking the crap on the face, like you're right, you're running, you're 620 00:40:10.519 --> 00:40:15.920 running first, the forerunner, and you know you're one hitting all the briars 621 00:40:15.920 --> 00:40:17.800 and the bushes smacking you in the face and cutting them down on your way 622 00:40:17.840 --> 00:40:22.400 through. So definitely learn a lot trying to, you know, quote unquote, 623 00:40:22.400 --> 00:40:25.679 trailblaze and be out there and a forefront. But you know, as 624 00:40:25.719 --> 00:40:30.239 you do, you do learn a lot more. So it definitely pre vnse 625 00:40:30.239 --> 00:40:34.000 people from having to go through certain things. And you know, never would 626 00:40:34.000 --> 00:40:37.119 I thought like sending an email to a major company on behalf of someone else 627 00:40:37.119 --> 00:40:40.000 and they were just like yeah, we're work with these creators, like it's 628 00:40:40.039 --> 00:40:44.480 that easy, and I'm just like it can be if you're part of the 629 00:40:44.559 --> 00:40:46.519 right communities. And I think that's one thing you do really will to billy 630 00:40:46.639 --> 00:40:51.239 is like, once people are in your ecosystem, you really want to see 631 00:40:51.280 --> 00:40:54.719 them when and being able to send an email on behalf of you know someone 632 00:40:54.760 --> 00:40:58.519 that says, Hey, I think this would be a good fit. You 633 00:40:58.559 --> 00:41:01.239 know this person is in this industry, your products and services are in the 634 00:41:01.280 --> 00:41:06.199 same industry. Hey, brand, I think this would be a good fit 635 00:41:06.239 --> 00:41:09.880 for some type of collaboration, for this person to represents you on a platform 636 00:41:09.960 --> 00:41:15.480 that you're not being represented on or you're not being there. Diversity is a 637 00:41:15.480 --> 00:41:20.880 big thing, billy, like there's some platforms where people just aren't being showcased 638 00:41:20.880 --> 00:41:23.199 and so if there's someone that could feel that void and it makes sense, 639 00:41:23.360 --> 00:41:30.679 then these brands that are really seeing what digital influence really looks like, what 640 00:41:30.719 --> 00:41:36.320 content creation really looks like, they're more willing to explore ideas and possibilities, 641 00:41:36.360 --> 00:41:38.360 and that's something else we can position to the brand is, Hey, I 642 00:41:38.400 --> 00:41:42.480 have as idea. Would you guys just like to try this idea and let's 643 00:41:42.519 --> 00:41:44.920 just see what happens? And that's kind of one of them. In the 644 00:41:44.960 --> 00:41:49.199 avenues I've gone in as well, that's worked pretty well. Yeah, man, 645 00:41:49.400 --> 00:41:52.719 yeah, I think that's a great strategy. It's and here's the thing. 646 00:41:52.719 --> 00:41:57.440 When someone makes a recommendation to me from someone else and that you know 647 00:41:57.519 --> 00:41:59.519 like say, Hey, I can't help you, but here's this person I 648 00:41:59.559 --> 00:42:02.920 recommend end and that person crushes it and knocks it out of the park from 649 00:42:02.960 --> 00:42:08.239 for whatever my project is, then I I value the person who recommended them 650 00:42:08.280 --> 00:42:12.159 just as much, if not more, than the person themselves that did the 651 00:42:12.159 --> 00:42:15.159 project and crushed it. And I think that's the leverage that you have when 652 00:42:15.159 --> 00:42:19.159 you have this community of creators that you're around, when you're, you know 653 00:42:19.400 --> 00:42:21.760 in it. Might you know it's a paid community. I know your communities, 654 00:42:21.760 --> 00:42:24.519 a paid community, but one that kind of filth. It's, you 655 00:42:24.519 --> 00:42:28.599 know, I won't get into paid community versus none, but that is a 656 00:42:28.639 --> 00:42:32.159 filter itself. Of You have quality and all other stuff, when you have 657 00:42:32.320 --> 00:42:37.000 the email addresses of the brands in there, it's like, yeah, I 658 00:42:37.000 --> 00:42:39.840 had to put a paid gate on that one because you know, you can't 659 00:42:39.880 --> 00:42:45.280 have everybody going to email and all the because you know there's definitely a level 660 00:42:45.400 --> 00:42:51.039 of knowledge and capabilities that you have to be at to work with the brand. 661 00:42:51.039 --> 00:42:53.400 You can't just show up in your bedroom with the messy, with the 662 00:42:53.400 --> 00:42:59.199 messy close behind you and go live and think that you know that brand is 663 00:42:59.239 --> 00:43:02.639 going to respect what you're capable of doing. You may well be, but 664 00:43:02.719 --> 00:43:07.400 hey, we might need to learn a couple things to position ourselves better. 665 00:43:07.440 --> 00:43:13.159 And so, you know, definitely having contact from so many different industries, 666 00:43:13.199 --> 00:43:15.719 like I said, brands I've worked with and brands I haven't worked with, 667 00:43:15.800 --> 00:43:19.360 and being in other communities. I believe every coach needs to coach. So 668 00:43:19.440 --> 00:43:22.119 I actually have invested in two coaches. I'm actually going to go through my 669 00:43:22.119 --> 00:43:27.639 own intensive through with a coach that's been on the brand side and the influencer 670 00:43:27.719 --> 00:43:30.320 side in a couple weeks. So there's a lot of knowledge that's going to 671 00:43:30.360 --> 00:43:37.280 be filtered inside of that and definitely, definitely have to have people respect the 672 00:43:37.360 --> 00:43:42.400 creator economy for what it is and what I definitely see where it's going. 673 00:43:42.920 --> 00:43:47.119 Yeah, man, absolutely lots of opportunities out there. Auntie man crushes it 674 00:43:47.239 --> 00:43:51.280 as always. You'd bring the gym's the gold, all the value. So 675 00:43:51.400 --> 00:43:53.039 really appreciate you and I need to have you on the show more often. 676 00:43:53.039 --> 00:43:58.440 I'm going to going to keep Monday's open to do money. Monday's just to 677 00:43:58.440 --> 00:44:01.519 help content creators make money, because this is what we want to do. 678 00:44:01.599 --> 00:44:05.320 Essentially. Not Everybody wants to make money cut, you know, creating content, 679 00:44:05.360 --> 00:44:08.159 but the right people will watch these episodes and take this value and run 680 00:44:08.239 --> 00:44:13.000 with it and it'll be life changing for them. And so appreciate you being 681 00:44:13.039 --> 00:44:15.760 a voice in the creator community, man, and I'm going to put all 682 00:44:15.760 --> 00:44:20.280 those links to monty's stuff in the bottom. But before I for I jump 683 00:44:20.320 --> 00:44:22.559 off of here, is there anything else that you want to share it? 684 00:44:22.599 --> 00:44:23.840 I didn't set you up and, as always, I don't if you guys 685 00:44:23.920 --> 00:44:27.000 hear my three year old, but he has to be a part of the 686 00:44:27.000 --> 00:44:30.960 live show every day. Well, I'll share this since we brought up the 687 00:44:30.079 --> 00:44:35.199 kids. You know, I think the kids are definitely going to be paying 688 00:44:35.239 --> 00:44:37.440 attention to this as well. And if you have family, figure out where 689 00:44:37.440 --> 00:44:40.280 to incorporate them into what you're doing, you know, if that's something you're 690 00:44:40.280 --> 00:44:45.119 comfortable with. Literally, had a picture of my daughter rocking some headphones and 691 00:44:45.280 --> 00:44:51.760 the brand loved it and I go to their instagram page today and literally I 692 00:44:51.840 --> 00:44:57.039 see cats wearing their equipment and using the boxes of the you know, we 693 00:44:57.119 --> 00:44:59.400 use equipment through the box of ways, a little cat in it, and 694 00:44:59.480 --> 00:45:04.000 so the creativity is something that brands are paying attention to as well, because 695 00:45:04.360 --> 00:45:06.960 they don't know how to do this on their own. They know what they 696 00:45:07.079 --> 00:45:10.360 do, and so if we can bring that element to it, it's definitely 697 00:45:10.360 --> 00:45:15.360 something that you can take advantage of by you know, we're creating a content 698 00:45:15.400 --> 00:45:19.360 anyway, might as well get paid for so something, I mean, seem 699 00:45:19.440 --> 00:45:24.159 funny and silly and fun those things work on social media and you can sell 700 00:45:24.199 --> 00:45:29.519 that same thing to a brand. So Pretty, pretty interesting what you can 701 00:45:29.559 --> 00:45:32.000 do nowadays. Yeah, man, it's amazing. In a lot of times 702 00:45:32.119 --> 00:45:35.519 it's from this device right here, like yeah, Funa, you don't. 703 00:45:35.880 --> 00:45:37.000 You know Monty and eye we nerd out. We get all this here, 704 00:45:37.119 --> 00:45:40.440 cameras, lights, all this fun stuff, and sure that brings the production 705 00:45:40.519 --> 00:45:44.880 value up. Maybe that's a conversation piece to say, Hey, I need 706 00:45:44.880 --> 00:45:47.840 to charge a little bit more than than x, but to get started, 707 00:45:47.880 --> 00:45:52.199 like you literally just need your phone. And so, Monty, we could 708 00:45:52.239 --> 00:45:54.719 jump into that in another episode because that's a whole another forty five minutes of 709 00:45:54.760 --> 00:45:58.639 talking about that. But Man, I appreciate, appreciate you so much, 710 00:45:58.639 --> 00:46:01.880 man.
