The Complete Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Successful YouTube Channel
Learn how to create, grow and monetize your channel without knowing anything about video or wasting time.
Everyone has a story to share…
Identify your audience. Create a connection. Make an impact.
Only you can share your message. Others can say the same thing, but your audience wants to hear from you! It’s your unique experiences, perspective and the way you say things that will make a huge impact on the lives of your subscribers.
That’s the power of YouTube: to create an intimate connection with your subscribers, gain authority and trust and make an impact in the world. Lofty I know… and also true.
You’ll learn everything I did to create a successful YouTube channel
(without the guessing)
Learn how we went from 0 to 100,000 subscribers in less than two years
(Without “going viral” using “hacks” or knowing anything about video production)
Are you ready for a change? To start something new and exciting that’s worth documenting?
Do you have the thought in the back of your mind that other people would enjoy following your journey and it might turn into something bigger?
These were the exact thoughts we had less than two years ago. It’s frightening to think that we almost didn’t start because we didn’t know anything about video, editing or YouTube.
It actually felt a little silly to start a YouTube channel. We had thoughts of doubt such as “Are we really that interesting?”, “Why would people want to watch us?” or “How am I going to learn everything?”
We discovered that we didn’t need to know how to do all the steps…just the first one.
We decided to overcome that awkward feeling of talking to a camera and recorded our first trip. Next we learned how to edit. Then learned how to upload a video. Instead of focusing on all things we didn’t know, we just focused on the next step.
When we started to look for information on YouTube, there was so much conflicting information. The creators who offered courses had millions of subscribers generated from prank videos targeting mostly teens.
These creators would teach things like “how to make a video go viral” (I’ve since learned is a sure fire way to attract all the wrong people). Other courses were offered by award-winning film-makers or recognized directors teaching how to create cinematic footage. This might be helpful for those in Hollywood, but can actually work against a YouTube creator when trying to establish a personal connection with their subscribers.
YouTube is not about making Grammy-nominated movies or tricking your audience to subscribe. It’s about being you and telling a story in such a way that makes a connection with your audience.
It turns out there is a formula for telling stories. Once you understand the formula, you’ll be able to craft your story in such a way to keep your audience engaged and coming back for more.
Because I have a marketing background, I know that successful channels didn’t grow from ONLY creating quality content. I’ve seen too many amazing videos with little to no views.
When growing your channel, understanding how YouTube works to grow your channel is equally as important as learning how to tell your story. The truth is, it’s not as complicated as it seems once you separate all the myths from facts and conflicting information.
All of your subscribers are already watching YouTube. You’ll learn exactly how to use YouTube analytics to grow your channel by getting your videos in front of your target audience without using social media or wasting time with collaborations.
Our subscribers value transparency and our courses are no different. You should know that this isn’t going to be easy, but remember: people don’t quit because it’s hard. They quit because it wasn’t as easy as they thought. Yes, creating a YouTube channel is hard work, but that’s why it’s rewarding. This is what scares away most people. Don’t let that be you! Join a community of committed creators learning from.
Imagine receiving emails from people because you’ve changed their lives. Imagine having footage to look back on for the rest of your life or getting your first direct deposit from Google. All of this is possible!
Our life changed when we finally realized there was no perfect time to start. That we were never going to be less busy. That each year would be just like the last… until we took the first step. Don’t wait. Get started now!
In only ten months, our videos were paying for 100% of our travel.

Get Insider Analytics
Take the Guessing Out
When our channel was growing, we had endless questions. We were unsure what a good audience retention rate was. We didn’t know how much money our channel would make when we reached the next level. Asking other creators was awkward because they seemed to hold their analytics close to their chests.
You won’t have to do any guessing. Members of the course will get a complete view of the KYD Analytics dashboard and videos to help your understand YouTube analytics and grow your channel.
About the Instructor
My name is Marc Leach and I created a successful YouTube channel with my wife Tricia that reaches more than 800,000 viewers per month and provides a six-figure income from all traffic sources.
This was accomplished in less than two years with zero video experience and no background in editing or cameras.
Candidly, we never thought this was possible, but decided to take the first step anyway since we didn’t have anything to lose. We knew the learning process was going to be rough, but it worked out well for us and now we want to show you that it’s possible for you too!

What Members are Saying About the Course
I have enjoyed watching Marc, Tricia and their entertaining family so when I saw they were offering a course on their success I couldn’t wait to see what they had put together. Just like their YouTube channel, it is a mixture of humor, experience, research knowledge and a no-nonsense approach. Some of the information I already knew from my own business but I was always rewarded with a different twist. I look forward to meeting in person very soon!
~Tiffney & Rick (1irielife4me)
“This is the best course I’ve ever taken. Marc does a great job at making it very intuitive. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to expand their current YouTube channel or wanting to become a new YouTube Creator”
The course is fantastic! For me, I’m technically able to do everything I need to do but I’m unsure about the content, and that’s where I need training.
At this point, you might be thinking…
If you’re thinking this, you’re not alone. Have you ever heard something multiple times, but one time clicks? That’s because of how the message was delivered. We all impact each other differently and you have a message that only you can deliver!
If everyone waited until they were experts, we’d have no experts in the world. It’s natural to hesitate when starting something new, but only good things come from taking the leap… and you’ll have a supportive community to help you.
Understanding the difference between time and energy is key. Have you ever been working on a project and feel like you’re making little to no progress, but then quickly have a breakthrough when looking at it with fresh eyes?
That’s the power of being excited about what you’re working on and having a plan to get it done. Creating a successful channel is simply a matter of following a system and surrounding yourself with people to keep your energy high.
You have a 30-day money back guarantee with no questions asked. If this course isn’t for you, just let us know and we’ll process a full refund.
