If anyone had to pay the full price for this course should get a refund. There is nothing if the first three chapters you can't find with a Google search. I am really disappointed with this product and will be asking for a full refund.

Deepa5 October 2020

SO far i feel its a good class for me, what knowledge i take away has to be seen after watching all videos

Nitchman2 October 2020

Hello, watching the course majority of the info given here you can also find on other videos on YouTube, I think an update could be adding a how to use TubeBudy or Vid IQ to improve and get more views and rank better. Am a music producer and I sell beats online, but I'm struggling a lot to grow on youtube, I don't want to ask back for the money, I'd rather some help. I know your experience might not be in music but am sure there are techniques that i can apply to help.

Melissa26 September 2020

Rating it 4 stars for now, as I'm only at Section 3. So far the content that I have gone through is not new to me.

David16 September 2020

Excellent course. Very clear, and at a perfect pace. Great use of sub-sections to allow for easy review of specific topics. I'm very new to being a YouTuber, and this course is certainly laying the foundation for what I have planned. Thanks, Phil & Mike!

Tony27 February 2020

So far I haven’t heard anything earth shattering except that you don’t really work YouTube to it’s full potential. I will continue to watch and maybe my rating will go up.

Jeff26 February 2020

I’ve enjoyed this course I’ve learned a lot Now I look forward to the next course thank you guys good job

Jordan23 February 2020

This course has, quite literally, everything. Not all of it necessarily applies to me right now, but this is a resource I'll come back to when the time comes to grow or learn more. Phil and Mike really know their stuff and are super practical in their instructions.

Justin21 February 2020

As a beginner to YouTube, I learned so much on how to build my channel from scratch and how to make money with it! Phil and Michael did a really good job on explaining how things work with YouTube, showing case studies of how they were doing what they were teaching on their channels, and giving tip and tricks on how to improve your channel! I'm excited to apply what I learned to my channel!

Lisa16 February 2020

There wasn't enough details and help about what I was looking for. I need help designing my channel art for YouTube and I won't finish this course because it wasn't helpful.

Antony15 February 2020

Brilliant course! I am an absolute YouTube novice. This course has given me the confidence to start my own channel. Love the fact that I can just drop back into the sections to refresh as i'm uploading my vids etc. The guys explain everything in great detail and make it so easy to follow and understand. Cheers guys!

Raquel13 February 2020

I have a YouTube Channel for a number years and I don't have a lot of subscribers and so far the classes have been informative.

Tibor1 February 2020

The course itself is good and enjoyable, but I didn't get enough in depth information about the topic that I wanted to master with this "Masterclass".

Atala1 February 2020

Please add more contents regardng increasing subscribers and watch time. I have a youtube channel. I have already implemented all these methods. But I am still struggling in increasing subscribers and watch time. Please guide me. Thank you

Davor29 January 2020
