OWN YOUR CORNER OF THE INTERNET
BY MAKING VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE.

You've been thinking about YouTube for a while. You even created a YouTube channel. But you haven't really uploaded any videos because you're afraid of putting yourself out there.

You've tried making a few videos but you're not sure if you're doing it right because it felt really awkward to film and edit yourself.

You see other YouTube channels run by people that don't seem that different from you but you're not sure how they're doing it.

You wish someone from the world of YouTube would just take you by the hand and guide you through the process so you can do YouTube the right way.

IMAGINE HAVING YOUR OWN SPACE WHERE YOU WRITE THE RULES AND SHARE WHAT YOU'RE PASSIONATE ABOUT.

WELCOME TO YOUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL

  • Where you can be yourself and see what you're really capable of.
  • Where you're an authority in your subject matter.
  • Where you're comfortable with imperfection and excited to experiment in new, creative ways.
  • Where you have an impact on a global community by confidently creating videos.
  • Where you discover a larger world beyond your comfort zone and do something that most people will never do.

YOU'RE READY TO TAKE THIS YOUTUBE THING SERIOUSLY
BUT YOU HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS!

What equipment do you REALLY need in order to make good videos?


What are your friends/family going to think when they find out you're trying to do YouTube?

What if you're an introvert and you're really shy on camera?


How are you going to find the time for YouTube on top of juggling work, family, and other life stuff?

What if it's too late? What if YouTube is too big for you to start now?


What if you get a negative comment or an internet troll finds your channel?

I know. There can be a LOT of questions and confusion when you're looking to do YouTube FOR REAL and put yourself out there.

If you don't have a plan to follow, it's easy to get overwhelmed and continue pushing off your goal of having a successful YouTube channel.

Without guidance and support, it can be difficult to make any progress at all.

THAT'S WHY I CREATED MY STEP-BY-STEP COURSE:
ZERO TO YOUTUBE HERO.

— JAMES LE,
JAMES AND MARK

“Heather opened my eyes to all of the untapped potential that I was holding onto. She helped me learn how to create a video, edit it, and optimize it so friends and complete strangers can watch me eat or cook on YouTube. I learned how to hear and watch myself on camera without cringing.

The greatest benefit I have found is this surge of creative energy in my life now. My confidence has also increased—I am no longer afraid of putting myself out there.

Heather helped me realize that we can all be YouTube creators and share what’s most important to us with the world.”

LIFE BEFORE ZERO TO YOUTUBE HERO:

  • You've tried making a few videos and the whole process takes FOREVER - how are you supposed to create content regularly and still have time to have a life?
  • You spend so much time debating and second-guessing yourself because you don't know what you should really be focusing on.
  • You were terrified of uploading your first video because you were afraid of what people would think but now that you've uploaded it, no one thinks anything because no one is watching your videos!
  • You think maybe you're too old to be doing this YouTube thing so you continue to putting it off until you find the time to figure it out.
  • Months, if not years, are passing by and your YouTube channel is still just sitting there because you're not sure how to grow it.

LIFE AFTER ZERO TO YOUTUBE HERO:

  • You have a whole library of videos that you have a lot of fun making and that people enjoy watching.
  • You've streamlined a creative process that allows you to produce videos with confidence and stick to a regular upload schedule.
  • You've figured out the perfect combination of equipment, format, and storytelling that works for you and your audience.
  • You actually have fans who care about what you have to say and look forward to watching your videos.
  • You're constantly connecting with like-minded people from all over the world who share the same passion as you.
  • Your friends/family found out about your YouTube channel and now they're asking you how they can start one of their own.

— CARISSA ORTEGA,
JUSTKISSA

"My main issue was my confidence. Even with years of business experience under my belt, I still felt unqualified, green, and really unsure. I kept asking myself, 'Why would anyone want to subscribe to my YouTube channel?' But Heather really believed in me. She helped me to see that my journey is a real process that has value and vulnerability is what people connect to the most.

Heather kept telling me that I have a story worth sharing. Seeing her share her journey helped me to share my own.

Starting a YouTube channel did so much for me. It gave me the confidence I needed to be comfortable in front of the camera, to talk to others about my story, and to be myself without fear of being judged (although this is still an ongoing part of my journey lol). If you asked me 2 years ago if I would ever make a YouTube video, I would definitely say no. But thanks to Heather, I’m excited to share my perspective with the world."

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN THESE SKILLS AND
GROW A YOUTUBE CHANNEL?

The honest answer is that it's different for everyone. You'll be able to implement many of the strategies inside Zero To YouTube Hero immediately. Other concepts may take time to refine, like branding or editing.

With Zero To YouTube Hero, you'll have the blueprint to bring your YouTube vision to life.

Zero To YouTube Hero is a 12-month program but you decide how quickly you want to go through it.

NOW IS THE BEST TIME TO BUILD YOUR CORNER OF THE INTERNET ON YOUTUBE.

YouTube can be a source of fulfillment, connection, and even income but it is an investment. Though it does take time, it's probably less than you think. A few months can make all the difference.

Here's what I mean.

VIEWS GENERATE OVER TIME

With YouTube, it can feel like nothing is working and your videos are just sitting there collecting dust. Often times though, most of your views will come over time.

This graph shows a video's view count over the number of days since uploading.

You can see that it took me 100 days to get 732 views on this video. After that though, there's a steady rate of growth where the view count 10x's in the same amount of time and eventually passes 20,000 views (and counting!).

A few months can make all the difference for allowing your videos to circulate YouTube and be discovered by your target viewers.

I should also note that this video was on one of my channels that had LESS THAN 1,000 subscribers at the time of uploading. You don't need thousands to get thousands. You just have to know how to do YouTube the RIGHT way.

HOW A GLOBAL PANDEMIC CHANGED ONLINE BEHAVIOR

Now more than ever, people are turning to YouTube for education, entertainment, and encouragement. In unprecedented numbers, viewers are open to discovering new channels and new kinds of content.

EDUCATION

Whether it's a skill, a hobby, inspiration, or which product to buy, YouTube is a major resource for learning something new.

ENTERTAINMENT

In addition to traditional media entertainment, YouTube also provides a different way of connecting that feels like real life.

ENCOURAGEMENT

From self-care to creative or entrepreneurial endeavors, YouTube is a great place to get motivated and find a place to belong.

— TOM BUCK

"I had wanted to start a channel for a long time but I just felt kind of anxious and unsure. It wasn’t until I started working with Heather that I was able to develop a strategic plan to put my enthusiasm into video and more importantly than that, Heather’s the one who helped me to feel that it was ok to have a YouTube channel because even though I didn’t realize it, I had something worth sharing with others that might be valuable to people all over the world.

She helped me to realize that I should approach my channel focusing on quality over quantity and it turns out that you really don’t need a million subscribers to make an impact. It was before I even had 300 subscribers that a brand whose products that I use regularly actually reached out to me and that’s how I got my first brand deal."

IS THIS REALLY GOING TO WORK FOR ME?

I understand - setting a goal for yourself, COMMITTING to this YouTube thing, and working to bring your YouTube vision to life will take a lot of time and effort. If you really want a successful YouTube channel, I'll tell you: IT IS POSSIBLE. There is no barrier to entry - ANYONE can have an influential YouTube channel that they're proud of.

But do you NEED this course to make that happen?

IF ANY OF THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOU,
THEN
I DESIGNED THIS COURSE FOR YOU!

  • You're willing to put in the work because it's important to you to create something of your own that can serve as your creative outlet (and if it can also make a positive impact on your viewers - even better!).
  • You're NOT willing to compromise your integrity just for the views. You want your corner of YouTube to be a place where you can truly be your authentic self.
  • You want to see long-term success and you know that, like many creative endeavors, the payoff is correlated with how much you put in. You're excited to go beyond your comfort zone and see what you're really capable of.
  • You want your channel to also be a place where "your" people can feel like they belong - people who are like-minded, brought together through your shared passion.
  • You're ready to experiment as you know that the thing that clicks is usually a result of combined attempts, angles, and approaches.

IF ANY OF THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOU,
THEN I'M NOT A GOOD FIT FOR YOU.

  • You want to go viral and get millions of views and subscribers. First of all, there is no recipe for virality although you can probably create some questionable content purely for the clickbait factor.
  • You have no sense of higher purpose for building a YouTube channel that goes beyond the numbers and metrics. You don't need big numbers to build a vibrant community or create content that you're proud of but if the numbers mean more to you than the people behind those numbers, I can't help ya.
  • You want fame & fortune overnight. Growing a YouTube channel also means that you're growing a personal brand which will lead to notoriety and monetization opportunities. However, it doesn't happen overnight. Sustainable, long-term success rarely does.
  • You're looking to create harmful or negative content, especially because you think it'll get the views. To put it simply, I refuse to enable this kind of content.

You can totally figure things out as you go. Heck, that's what I did. However, IT TOOK ME FOREVER. If it was only about making fun videos, then everyone would have a YouTube channel with millions of subscribers. But it's so much more than that.

This is why I created Zero To YouTube Hero. I wanted to design a resource that would allow aspiring YouTube creators to have the know-how and the confidence to build their YouTube channels effectively and efficiently. That way, you can focus on having fun, sharing your story, and building your community.

— PATRICIA REGIER

"Heather has helped me grow my YouTube knowledge and skills. I have tried new filming and editing techniques and having a coach who cheers you on makes a difference! When I filmed regularly, my confidence on camera grew tremendously! The Zero To YouTube Hero program will assist in growing your creativity and understanding of what steps can be taken with your channel. I appreciate how supportive Heather is and it’s amazing to be part of her community."

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

If you've been waiting for a sign that you are capable of building an influential YouTube channel that you can be proud of, THIS IS IT.

WITH ZERO TO YOUTUBE HERO, YOU'LL GET:

FOCUS

There's an infinite amount of free how-to-YouTube blogs, vlogs, tutorials, podcasts, and PDFs out there. But how do you know what REALLY works? What should you REALLY focus on? This course has everything you need to know and ONLY what you NEED to know so that you're not overwhelmed by irrelevant information.

CLARITY

Zero To YouTube Hero includes examples, templates, and references so that you have guidance and direction when applying these proven strategies to your own channel.

ENCOURAGEMENT

Learn from someone who did this the hard way, someone who knows the in's and out's of YouTube, someone who is now a YouTube Coach that specializes in helping people like you share their stories on YouTube.

COMMUNITY

Despite 2 billion active users on YouTube, there are far fewer creators than there are viewers. If you're the only person in your life that is doing YouTube, it can feel like you're a crazy one. You are not alone. That's how I felt and how many in this course feel. Connect with other aspiring creators who dare to do something they never thought they could.

PERSONAL GROWTH

You'll find that many of the skills that you learn in Zero To YouTube Hero, such as communication, creativity, and collaboration, will translate to other aspects of your life. There are several applicable tactics to implement within every section of this course and you'll see yourself improve with every video you create.

YOU'VE GOT TWO CHOICES HERE...

You can continue down this path of having your toe dipped into the world of YouTube through a stagnant channel where you upload videos whenever you get around to it.

- OR -

You can COMMIT to doing YouTube, INVEST in the proven system to grow your channel, and start seeing RESULTS in just a few weeks!

Another day gone is another day you could have created a video,
a viewer could have discovered your content,
and a subscriber could have joined your community.

With this step-by-step blueprint, imagine where you'll be in a month.
Imagine where you'll be in SIX months!

THIS IS YOUR CORNER OF THE INTERNET.

Your YouTube channel is the place where there are no expectations and you're in full control.

This is your creative outlet where you share your thoughts, your passion, and your life.

This is your side project where you connect with internet friends that have the same passion as you.

This is the thing in your life that is completely your own.

— OSWALDO ZUNIGA, ROCKENTRY

"Oh, man! Heather made me realize the importance of documenting and sharing a passion of mine to the world! At first, I was hesitant to start YouTube because I felt like I didn't know anything! But, Heather made me realize that I can actually document my climbing/fitness journey which ends up helping my viewers. Not only am I a better climber but a better overall person."

STILL NOT TOTALLY SURE?

I don't have time right now to take an online course!

Zero To YouTube Hero was designed so that you can start with the section that you want to focus on which means that you don't have to finish the whole course for you to begin implementing strategies on your channel IMMEDIATELY. Even relatively small changes can make a big difference in the world of YouTube.

I'd rather invest in gear or equipment.

While equipment upgrades can improve the quality of video, they don't necessarily guarantee a better YouTube experience for the viewer. There are plenty of successful channels that use basic equipment like smartphones. Additionally, new equipment can often hinder rather than help if you don't already have a production process that you're confident in.

I'll start with the free tutorials and blogs first.

If you want to get STRAIGHT to the information that's relevant, tested, and proven to make the biggest impact on the growth of your YouTube channel AND have it stored all in one place, then Zero To YouTube Hero is for you. Learn from an experienced peer who is also sharing her own story on YouTube.

— DOMINIQUE HENDERSON

"I’m a financial advisor that wanted to get in front of my ideal prospect. I wanted people to trust me with their money but I wasn't showing my face online. So I wanted to get on video but I knew I needed some help.

I started scrolling through all of the different people and long story short, I came across Heather. One of the reasons why I worked with her is because I saw that she was actually living out her brand. She wasn’t this button-up social media person. She had the cap turned on backwards, the purple hair, and everything so I was like, let me give her a try.

Heather is really good at identifying what you need to do in order to get to the next level. What I would say to anybody that is looking to get on video, specifically using YouTube as a strategy, I would hands down recommend Heather."

MEET YOUR YOUTUBE COACH

Hi! I'm Heather Ramirez, YouTube Certified coach and digital content creator! In April 2016, I quit my job to start my own business promoting digital literacy, all while documenting my journey on YouTube. It was the most terrifying decision of my life, but now I make a living doing what I love, I’m able to help people all around the world, and I also met the love of my life!

I had no idea that any of this would happen but that’s the magic of YouTube. Your story can make a real, positive impact on someone else which can open up limitless opportunities. Your hobby, your passion, your unique experience is worth sharing. You just have to be willing to share it.
