Series: How to KILL it on YouTube
Cohost: Stan Genadek from Dirt Monkey University
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been encouraging the tradies and contractors we work with to start leveraging YouTube as a way to promote their businesses. In this episode, we’re going to talk how you can generate income from your YouTube videos.
Being that the majority of trade based businesses have in one way, or another a visual service, YouTube offers a brilliant opportunity to position yourselves as the expert through educational videos of sort.
Stanley was recommended to me by Tom Reber from Motor Hard, who you may recall from the awesome series we recorded on Goal Setting. Here are the links to those episodes, go check them out, they’re sooooo good.
- Part one – Creating a game plan in your business
- Part two – Setting goals that count towards your game plan
- Part three – Keeping accountable to your goals
Stanley is a landscape gardener who has managed to create a huge YouTube following by basically documenting his business. You can check it out for yourself at this link.
It’s a channel dedicated to all things landscaping, so if you’re looking for motivation, or ideas on how to develop your own YouTube channel, you may as well mirror it off someone that’s doing it.

Episode 3. Using YouTube to generate income
Welcome back to part three of this EPIC series on YouTube.
In part one, Stan talks to us about how to set up your YouTube channel…the right way,
In part two, Stan was teaching us about creating great youtube videos,
And in today’s third and final podcast, Stan is talking to us about using youtube to generate income.
It was very interesting to hear about how Stan has effectively created a double edged sword using YouTube to generate income in his business.
His YouTube videos are his only source of marketing for his landscaping business to which he now has a following of over 40,000 fans. So he’s flat out busy form the lead generation that comes as a result of the videos he creates, however he also gets paid by YouTube to keep creating videos. It’s pretty good position to be in.
It might sound like a far fetched goal, but as we discuss in this podcast, it’s quite achievable if you have a plan and a strategy. Like most content creation forms, it’s all about the planning. Creating content and syndicating it ‘ad hock’ is not a good approach as it results in inconsistency, which is paramount if you’re trying to build a following.
Anyway enjoy part three of this series and as always, if you have any questions, let me know. Also, please don’t forget to leave us a review in iTunes. It’s all we ask 😉
