VidSummit is NOT a place where influencers connect with their fans. Instead, VidSummit is where you become an industry insider. Without the fans at the event, influencers share the truth of what they do - the truth they would never share online. In other words, VidSummit is the only event where dozens of the top 1% of influencers show you how to get fans fast, build a brand, and make millions from your content.

The Right Way To Launch A Second Channel

I used to be an offensive lineman in the NFL. Now myself and my team push the limits on what we think is possible when it comes to building awesome projects. We mix woodworking, with metal work, epoxy and sprinkle in some home DIY and renovation projects too! If you're anything like me, you've got a passion for getting your hands dirty and creating something special with wood. Whether it's crafting a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture or tackling a challenging DIY project, there's something incredibly rewarding about bringing your ideas to life in the workshop. After spending years on the football field, I hung up my cleats and dove headfirst into the world of woodworking. And let me tell you, it's been one heck of a ride! From learning the basics to mastering advanced techniques, I've poured my heart and soul into honing my craft and sharing what I've learned along the way. That's where my YouTube channel comes in. It's not just a place to watch me build cool stuff (although there's plenty of that!). It's a community where fellow woodworkers – from beginners to seasoned pros – can come together, learn from each other, and get inspired to take their skills to the next level. So whether you're here to pick up some tips, dive into a new project, or simply hang out with a fellow woodworking enthusiast, I'm thrilled to have you along for the ride. Let's roll up our sleeves, grab our tools, and make something awesome together!

How to come up with thumbnail concepts, create realistic thumbnails, & more!

Creators are constantly asking me questions about my thumbnail creation process. Some of which are just starting out, and some are very successful and established. Out of all of the questions I get asked, the 2 most common questions are "How do you come up with concepts for thumbnails?" and "How do you make your thumbnails look so realistic?" The third most common would probably be "how do you find and choose assets for your thumbnails?" which I'd love to cover in part of the presentation as well.
