What you will learn

Film and share your passion with the world using video

Basic tips and strategies to get started as a vlogger



This course was created to help you get going with creating your own vlog; covering all of the basics from dealing with your fear of vlogging in public, basic equipment and the editing software you'll need.

Although there are hundreds of tutorials on "how to vlog" on YouTube, this course is a unique perspective after 7 years of experience vlogging on YouTube. The journey has been challenging but incredibly rewarding. I will share with you the mindset of vlogging and how it can help you grow your business or personal brand.

What makes me qualified to teach you?

I'm a self-taught video editor and full time vlogger that started off like you!

In 2016, I had zero video editing experience, no laptop, no students and no YouTube channel. Fast forward to January 2023, I have;

  • 832+ videos on my main YouTube channel (I own 3 channels)

  • 20,000+ YouTube subscribers (combined)

  • 312,000+ students in my digital courses

  • 6,500+ reviews (avg. 4.6/5 review rank)

Trust me, as I review my stats it sounds crazy to me too! I never expected in a million years to be in my current position with these achievements. I started with nothing. If I can do it, I am confident that you can do it too.

Thanks mate, you're a great teacher and I learned a lot. One thing I would add is that snappa sucks and Canva is much better and easier to use.

this course is teaching us from the scratch. It is easy and simple for beginners in vlogging. The tutor does not tell only the positives. Sharing even the negative experience is much beneficial to know what to expect and how to react to certain view. much useful course for new vloggers

Excellent course for beginners. Brad gives some tips and tricks that can help on your vlogging journey. Also, he talks about mindset. This is the most important section of the course in my opinion.

Great solid advice on how to get started and why should vlog in the first place. Enough to get you started without any ballast.

Loved the easy going approach - yet there was tons of very useful information. I appreciated the honesty as well as to the reality of creating a Youtube channel. Many Youtubers act like everything is instant success, or if you just follow their course it will be instant success and money just pouring in. Thank you for being real and honest!

Smashing insight, fantastic tips and experiences shared, exactly what I was looking for! Thanks Brad!

The Basics were interesting. But I wished there would have been some more inside tipps and tricks how to film engaging vlogs. Like Camera guidance or something.

Brad brings his passion for video editing and helping others on their YouTube Channel/journey to the forefront. Great tips. Learned a lot. Very inspiring. Love his Adobe Premier Pro courses, too. Highly recommend if you are thinking about vlogging.

I really liked that Brad expresses his opinion about that you don't have to try to be like another particular vlogger, but just to be yourself. What I also liked was that Brad was so open and honest about his earnings as a vlogger. I believe that so many people think that they can become rich by vlogging. Brad's course shows that it takes a lot of work building up followers, and eventually earning very little from it. Also good that you tell the people in te course that you use your vlogging as a lead for your main business. The topic about adding footage about the story that your telling (B roll) was very usefull. I watched this course for a different purpose than vlogging, I'm going to make a video job application, and I'm defenitely going to use the extra footage in it.

This was a very good basic introduction to the world of Vlogging. Thank you Brad! You are inspirational!
