    Tell me more about this Youtube Certified exam in Audience Growth. I would
    also like to find out how to do better keyword research. I have no problem
    making videos but I am not sure I have the knowledge I need to find the
    right keywords to use in my title to get the audience I want for my

    Hello Gideon
    I am always keen to watch your video’s, and whilst I have some ideas that
    have developed from my Research, I hesitate to make mention, primarily due
    to the fact that I am one of those Thousands ( Millions ? ) of people
    around the globe that “just doesn’t seem to be able to make it”. I have had
    some success with ranking video’s, and currently have about 12 #1 for
    various terms, some of which are competitive, but its made me zero.
    I would love to help if I could.
    Kind regards

    Maybe show something that shows people where to outsource the video
    marketing work?

  6. GabakTech - Cursos de Computación Gratis

    plz make business videos, how to sell, how to talk to customers, how to
    edit and make all those especial effects you use.
    u can do more videos like Derek Halpern from soccial triggers.
    you should make a video at least once a week, so audience will wait for it
    like i do with other youtubers.
    also improve ur site, use wordpress if u can and it will help u a lot, i
    tried to buy what u try to sell and i find ur site oscure to buy and
    i have been doing videos for almost 2 years and i got 13k subscribes, and i
    do 1 or 2 videos a week. (i got over 400 now).
    how come u did nt grow that much in 8 years? and u got only 123 videos?

    i hope these things help you.
    best regards

  7. Tomlin Demetrius Campbell

    Hi Gideon,

    I would like you to talk about how to create successful membership sites.
    Thank you.

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Hey +Tomlin Demetrius Campbell! Ok sure – make sure you add that answer to the survey ok? That's how it will get on the list…

  8. Steve Winder

    Hi Gideon, done! – would love to have a chat with you about an idea we
    have? Thanks

  9. Logan Mathis

    There you go!! Thank you

  10. Mel Wells

    I’ve been watching you for over (gosh could it be 2 years?) well… I think
    you are great so I did the survey and wish you get all the information you
    need. You are terrific and love all the hard work you put into your
    material. You have a nice way about you even though you have a non-American
    accent (ha ha just kidding). Best to you.

  11. stubzTV

    I get around 5K views per day on old videos on my main channel but I need
    to figure out how to convert that traffic into email subscribers and loyal


    Hi Gideon, I am still a newbie don’t even know what questions to ask.
    However, I like watching your videos and they have given me some good
    ideas. I will do your survey. All the best and keep up the good work.

  13. ToGraphic4U

    Wow Gideon, you always do such an awesome job. I’ve been following you
    since about 2008 after an auto accident. I found my niche is design and
    video editing tutorials. But I would like to know how I could improve them.

  14. John Roberts

    Out of all the subscribed channels in my network you create the most
    positive and most intelligent network as far as creativity is concerned.
    You present yourself in a very professional way and communicate many good
    ideas. By the way that is a cool shirt to market for Ebay :)! I am going to
    do something very special for you! I am going to pray that you will have a
    dream and that Dream is going to be the most Amazing Idea. This Idea is
    going fuel your Faith to create an atmosphere of Success! That Success will
    collaborate your Idea with others into the next Level and Breakthrough! How
    does sound?

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Wow thank you for the very kind words +John Roberts! Means a lot! And thank you also for your prayer about the dream – I'm about to go to bed now, so I'll be looking out for that dream for sure!!!

    • John Roberts

      If you get one send it to! :)! I also send someone that I know very well to your U Tube Channel! He is already impressed about your content and eager to watch! :) Good Night :)

    • Francois Lamotte

      I agree with John, you are one of the most positive and subtle guy in the info business area. We learn a lot just by watching / listening on your work. We never feel you pushy. Always a pleasure to open a link and start the video.

      Last week I tried to send you back something (I'm on the SEO/website optimization). And with our tool I started to analyze your splasheo website. But as it is more a collection of landingpages than a "standard" website, it was difficult to show you something relevant.

      Maybe you don't rely on Google Serps for your trafic. But if you do, I could show you different things on how the "semantic" of your pages are perceived by Google and how you could enhance it.

    • Gideon Shalwick

      hey +Francois Lamotte! Oh that sounds very interesting indeed! Would you mind connecting with the team at Splasheo about this? Just send an email to… thanks!

    • Francois Lamotte

      Hi +Gideon Shalwick Thank you for your answer. I've launched 2 analysis one on and the other on When the report will be available, I'll send an email and find the best moment to screenshare with you.

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Ok great stuff +Francois Lamotte!

  15. Harry Jackson

    Make some cultural videos, if possible.

  16. Lucas Kussowski

    What you are doing already is great – brand consistency through social
    media is essential for effective engagement and more :)

  17. Gideon Shalwick

    Oh thanks +Kussowski Brothers! Was there anything specific you wanted to learn from me? This is your opportunity to ask me anything :)

  18. Gideon Shalwick

    Ok cool, great questions +RotaryTsawwassen – can you please make sure you add these to the survey form as well? That would help me organise all the questions so much better, which would help me answer them so much better too!

  19. Learnguitartunes

    I have submitted my answers for you and I hope they are of a help for you
    Gideon. Many thanks, Jack.

  20. Lucas Kussowski

    +Gideon Shalwick I just watched your recent video on "content marketing" and it was reaffirming – I've seen that graph before but the update comparison proved interesting indeed. I'm a multimedia consultant that specialises in social media content creation (video, images, motion graphics) and infrastructure (setup Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc) based in Australia and the trend doesn't seem to have hit the shores yet (at least from Melbourne perspective). Over the last 12 months I've been getting the message across to the startup scene and businesses outside of it with little success – have been able to get the company name out there so maybe in 1-2 years the calls will come blasting through. So my question is haha, where in the world do you think the trend is happening the most now?

  21. waplogue1

    I have submitted my answers as well! Thank you for your amazing content!
    Your channel is the one I learned the most valuable things from on youtube,
    and I’m subscribed to over 150 channels :) A big thank you to you!

  22. Oliver Robertson

    Tech Reviews!

  23. Rockjockmatt

    I completed the survey. Most of which you probably have already covered in
    videos but I am just starting to try and make better videos, grow an
    audience, and convert them to money.

  24. visualmima

    I completed the survey but I don’t think it submitted. Maybe it did? I’m
    the one looking for tutorials on making videos, vlogs with a inexpensive
    camera. $100 or so with external mic. Can you recommend one?

  25. Gideon Shalwick

    Ah yeah… In general, Australia is about 2-3 years behind the rest of the world when it comes to the internet… in some cases even more! 

    USA is definitely leading the world in these matters. I've just come back from the Social Media Marketing World event, and content marketing is HUGE over there. That's almost all they can talk about.

    Here's an interesting article to put "content marketing" into perspective (it's a $44 BILLION industry!!!):


  26. Gideon Shalwick

    Yup I got it thanks +visualmima!

  27. Gideon Shalwick

    Tech reviews! Ok you got it +Oliver Robertson! I love those!

  28. Gideon Shalwick

    Hmm… I don't think views are counted for your channel is the playlist is 100% curated (that is, if none of the videos in the playlist are your own). But if your own videos from your channel are in the playlist, I can't see why the views on that video won't count towards your channel.

  29. Glen Smyth

    Hi Gideon. Hope you’re going well! We met at SMMW in San Diego! Just filled
    in your survey. Keep up the great work. Enjoy watching all of the material
    you put out.

  30. Logan Mathis

    +Gideon Shalwick Hey I was just wondering something. If you make video responses to other people's videos instead of comments, will that generate more traffic or no?

    Thank you

  31. Viktoria Portyannykova

    Thank you for the very informative and interesting videos, Gideon. I’ve
    learned so much from your videos. Just left a few comments in your survey.
    Hope they help.

  32. Gideon Shalwick

    Planning to +Logan Mathis! I've been "out of it" for a bit while starting up a couple of other non-information marketing businesses. But I am planning some more content very soon… hence the little survey 😉

  33. Lucas Kussowski

    +Gideon Shalwick Thanks man – that helps me out heaps – I'm going to let things simmer while I get another job and come to it when the time is right – at least I've been able to position my company's brand in the meantime :)

  34. Adam Bean

    Survey complete, looking forward to seeing where you go with your channel

  35. Dinos Magic

    what is “youtube audience growth” program? Also can you tell me what other
    programs youtube has?

  36. Roger Pacific

    Just ran across this video and I see it was 3 month ago. I was looking for
    where to take the survey. I can’t find the link so I guess it must be
    done. Good luck with the info you received. I do like all that you have
    done. Grate INFO.

  37. hi im matty

    You should make videos on how to edit, maybe with iMovie! :)

  38. Gideon Shalwick

    Haha thank you +Mel Wells! You ROCK!

  39. Gideon Shalwick

    Thank you +Logan Mathis!

  40. Gideon Shalwick

    Great stuff thanks +Steve Winder! What's the idea?

  41. Steve Winder

    +Gideon Shalwick We have a magazine called SO Magazine and a video channel called SOtv where we create content for the hair & beauty world. Would love to interview you for the mag and talk about video for the hairdressing markets? have a look video stuff at thanks for your time Gideon.

  42. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey +GabakTech – Cursos de Computación Gratis! Thank you for your feedback! Much appreciated!

    Re your requests – brilliant and thanks!

    Re my WordPress site – I hear you loud and clear! I'm actually in the process of revamping the whole thing. It's rather outdated. 

    Re my own channel (this one) not growing much – this channel has not been my focus over the last 8 years at all. I simply use this channel to share about the things I've learned from other successful projects I've done. For example, check my first test channel here that I did with +Jay Jay

    That channel has around 178,000 subscribers, and over 20 Million views so far.

    I also help a lot of other people with their channels and video marketing strategy. For example, have a look at +Leslie Samuel 's channel here:

    That channel has around 58,000 subscribers and almost 6 Million views so far.

    Both these are very niche examples. Of course mainstream channels get a lot more views and subscribers… but not necessary money :)

    This survey though, is one of my first steps to turn this very channel (GideonShalwick YouTube channel) into somewhat more of an authority.

    Btw, have you added your suggestions on the survey form? That would be really helpful!

  43. Neil Sinclair

    I havent seen all your videos Gideon, but I'd like to see some more advanced video on usage of videos in different platforms to help people monetise better the use of the great videos you advise us to produce.

  44. Eliezer de Souza (Lee)

    My suggestion: a 1-minute series of videos explaining questions related to the latest YouTube settings, doubts like 'how do playlists count on YouTube?'. Congrats for your work!

  45. Gideon Shalwick

    Oh my, +ToGraphic4U! I've seen you around for a while, but did not realize you've been a subscriber since 2008! That's like 2 years after I started my entrepreneurial journey! How awesome!

  46. Gideon Shalwick

    No worries +STEVE WILSON! Just follow along the journey… I have some interesting plans coming up for this channel over the next wee while…

  47. Gideon Shalwick

    Oh that should be easy to fix +stubzTV! Did you leave your question in the survey? That will add your request to the list – it's a really good one btw – one that I would LOVE to cover in one of my upcoming videos :)

  48. Gideon Shalwick

    Ok cool +Passive Income Rockets! Love your G+ name btw! Also, remember to add your question to the survey ok?

  49. Gideon Shalwick

    Ah the monetization of it all Les! I will certainly be covering that in my upcoming videos. Say, did you remember to add your question to the survey form?

  50. Gideon Shalwick

    +Neil Sinclair Not completely sure I understand… you mean like setting up a membership site and charging money for it? That kinda thing?

  51. Gideon Shalwick

    +Eliezer de Souza Ooh I love the 1min idea! I love talking though, so maybe I should make them 2mins long haha!

  52. ToGraphic4U

    You have taught me a great deal, and for that I am grateful! In fact, after finally implementing everything I have learned from you, I am finally seeing results. Yet, I still have much more work ahead of me! Thank you! 

  53. Passive Income Rockets

    +Gideon Shalwick Sure, Gideon. I have submitted the form a few seconds ago. Thanks.

  54. Gideon Shalwick

    Ok great stuff +Passive Income Rockets! Thanks!

  55. GabakTech - Cursos de Computación Gratis

    thank you for your reply.
    i did nt fill up the form yet.
    Other thing i could nt find on internet , it is how to be a radio announcer ( to have a bass deep voice) or how to talk to the camera, meaning i do computer classes on my youtube channel and i sometimes i do 1 hour class or 30 minutes class and i know there are some ppl who every 20 minutes they say a joke or something like that to keep attention from the ppl, etc and i would like to learn that skill.
    why dont you do a talk show each week or every 15 days YouTube LIVE, and talk about a topic then reply ppl questions.
    Like Eli the computer guy (youtuber)
    thxs for all
    best regards

  56. Mel Wells

    Yes. I do rock.

  57. Gideon Shalwick

    lol awesome +Mel Wells! You're the first to admit it so confidently! LOVE IT!

  58. Gideon Shalwick

    I LOOOOVE your ideas +GabakTech – Cursos de Computación Gratis! I have been STRONGLY considering doing the LIVE thing… but my upload speeds here is terrible! So it's not a great option for me.

    BUT, I am working with a company right now to see if they can provide me with better internet. Australia (where I live) is ranked #44 in terms of internet speeds. We are pretty much a third world country when it comes to that :(

    But thanks you again for reminding me about it. It's really something I want to get into!

  59. GabakTech - Cursos de Computación Gratis

    +Gideon Shalwick i m sorry about ur internet connection, i hope these ideal help you out.
    if you want we can be in touch at send me few lines or on skype gabaktechnologies.

    best regards

  60. Gideon Shalwick

    So far, everyone I know who implements my advice gets amazing results.

    For example, I just caught up with JJ the other day… the FreeMagicLive channel now has over 20 million views, and around 180,000 subscribers. Proof that what I teach works. 

    Of course +Jay Jay has taken MASSIVE action on my advice, and are reaping the benefits today :)

  61. Gideon Shalwick

    Awesome! Thank you for your support Gabe!

  62. Gideon Shalwick

    Oh that is great thanks +Rockjockmatt! I think I will cover a lot of old topics again, since things have changed so much since I covered them…

  63. Gideon Shalwick

    Wow thank you +waplogue1! That's a massive compliment!!! More power to you!

  64. Gideon Shalwick

    Oh yes for sure Jack (+Learnguitartunes) I always appreciate your feedback!

  65. Gideon Shalwick

    +stubzTV Ok great thanks!

  66. Eliezer de Souza (Lee)

    A 2-3 minutes video helps a lot when you have a question that needs to sort it out quick. Thanks for the reply +Gideon Shalwick and if you have any idea if the curated playlists count any views to a channel, will be glad to hear – tried all over Google but could not find answer fir this!

  67. Gideon Shalwick

    Awesome! Thank you +Glen Smyth! Was great to meet you in SD!

  68. Gideon Shalwick

    Unfortunately you can't do video responses anymore. YouTube stopped it about a year or so ago… maybe even longer. Otherwise it would have been a good strategy. I reckon it was a silly move by YT. But I am sure they have their reasons!

  69. Logan Mathis

    You should make a 2014 vid on YT traffic then :) I think you're an reliable source and all this other stuff people are putting up isn't that great.

  70. Greg Savage

    +Gideon Shalwick filled out the survey looking forward to hearing from you soon :)

  71. Gideon Shalwick

    Awesome! Thanks +Greg Savage!

  72. Gideon Shalwick

    Cheers +Adam Bean!

    Fyi… got your email – have not had time to respond yet :)

  73. ToGraphic4U

    I just thought of something that I can't seem to find the answer to anywhere. Before you feature someone's channel on your channel, do you need their permission?

  74. Greg Savage

    +Gideon Shalwick No problem my friend, patiently waiting for your email :)
