YouTube hates me

Got this zinger over on YouTube: “Why did you needed to clickbait? 58k subs, 500 views with clickbait,  r you kidding me? Without clickbait he would have 250.” Oof! In a haze of dread… And paranoia that “they found me out”… I recorded this completely inadequate response: https://www.johnmorrisshow.com/344/ If you’re marketing your freelance services, products or your “dope” new app and wanna use YouTube (or blog or social media), I recommend a listen on why these are hands-down, 100% the dumbest, most ill-informed comments ever. And, what you should do instead. Later, John

Why I’m Joining YouTube Red

There’s been plenty of wailing and gnashing of teeth surrounding YouTube’s announcement of it’s new “Red” membership. And while there are plenty of good points being made, I’ll be joining YouTube Red as soon as it’s available (and think you should too). Here’s why: 1. The Nay-Sayers Actually Have No Idea (Even If They’re Right) You’ll find plenty of people already predicting YouTube Red’s demise, or how it’ll be bad for Creators or how it’s all about making money… and on and on. And, it hasn’t even launched yet! Truth is, nobody (not even Google) knows how this is going

I started this 3 days ago, following John’s suggestions, and I gained the Upwork Rising Talent badge in less than 2 days. I have a call with my first potential client tomorrow. Thanks, John!

John is the man! I followed his steps and I am flooded with interviews in a week. I got into two Talent clouds. The very next day, I got an invitation from the talent specialists from Upwork and a lot more. I wanna shout out, he is the best in this. Thanks John for helping me out!

After viewing John’s course, I made an Upwork account and it got approved the same day. Amazingly, I got my first job the very same day, I couldn’t believe it, I thought maybe I got it by coincidence. Anyways I completed the job and received my first earnings. Then, after two days, I got another job and within a week I got 3 jobs and completed them successfully. All the things he says seem to be minute but have a very great impact on your freelancing career.

I’ve been in an existential crisis for the last week about what the heck I’m doing as a business owner. Even though I’ve been a business for about a year, I’m constantly trying to think of how to prune and refine services. This was very personable and enjoyable to watch. Usually, business courses like this are dry and hard to get through…. repeating the same things over and over again. This was a breath of fresh air. THANK YOU.

I’ve definitely learnt so much in 2.5 hours than I’d learn watching different videos online on Youtube and reading tons of articles on the web. John has a natural way of teaching, where he is passionately diving in the topics and he makes it very easy to grasp — someone who wants you to really start running your business well by learning about the right tools and implement them in your online business. I will definitely share with many of the people I know who have been struggling for so long, I did find my answers and I’m sure will do too.

I have been following John Morris for several years now. His instruction ranges from beginner to advanced, to CEO-level guidance. I have referred friends and clients to John, and have encouraged my own daughter to pay attention to what he says. All of his teachings create wealth for me (and happiness for my clients!) I can’t speak highly enough about John, his name is well known in my home.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

John has been the most important person in my freelance career ever since I started. Without him, I would have taken 10 or 20 years more to reach the position I am at now (Level 2 seller on Fiverr and Top Rated on Upwork).
