Why I Keep Making Videos That Nobody Watches

If you've been following my blog for a while, you've probably noticed that I make a lot of videos. On average I publish about 25 videos per month. Some of my videos have gotten hundreds of thousands of views. But those videos are the outliers on my YouTube channel. The vast majority of my videos don't receive more than about a few hundred views. So why do I keep making them? I made a video to explain the answer.

Didn't watch the video? That's okay. Here are the main points:
  • It's part of trying to help as many teachers as possible.
  • I like doing it. 
  • It's part of a larger strategy that helps me sell my digital products like this one and this one

A Memory and a New Course

Just about the only thing keeping me on Facebook these days are the memories reminding me of where I’ve been. Back in December one of those memories was of a post I made in 2008 in which I wrote, “is wondering how to make money appear out of thin air.” (That was written back in the days when every FB post was the completion of a prompt like, “Richard is…”)  

I remember exactly where I was when I wrote that. I was sitting at the kitchen table in an apartment that was freezing cold because it was poorly insulated, propane prices had soared, and I was a broke teacher (partly because of the fuel prices).

Well I didn’t figure out a way to make money appear out of thin air, but I did figure out some ways that I could make a little bit of money without having to get a second job. At first it was just enough to put a little breathing room between paychecks. Today, it’s the money that I bank for my daughters’ college funds.

What I started to figure out back in the cold winter of 2008/09 were some ways to create and sell digital products and services. Over the years I’ve made some mistakes and refined my methods. And in a new course starting next week I will share those lessons with you.

In this new four-part course I’ll show you how I create my digital products and how I sell them today without using marketplaces like TpT.
