This might sound weird, but I love me some pain.
I don’t mean it in some 50 Shades of Edwin, kinky kind of way…
I’m talking about HEALTHY pain.
One of the best things that ever happened to me was getting cut from my schools basketball team.
It happened five times.
All the way from 6th till 10th grade, the head coach always told me I wasn’t good enough to make it.
But, in some strange way, it was the best thing that could have ever happened to me.
It was the turning point in my life and the main reason why I have such an insane work ethic till this day.
That summer before school started up again, I would work on my game every single day. I would wake up at 6AM to put up shots and to do drills. I would spend hours watching game film of NBA players to add new moves to my arsenal.
I locked myself away “in the lab” for months and came out of it a changed man.
And when the day of tryouts finally came, I made the team.
What was the key?
Practicing every day got me prepared. Being prepared got me leverage.
Whether it’s in life or online, having leverage is the name of the game.
It’s not much different with YouTube.
Without leverage, you’ll never get all the juicy free traffic you want.
Without leverage, you’ll never be able to compete with the big dawgs who get millions of views and subscribers.
The easiest way to create leverage is to know what keywords and tags to use for your videos.
That’s where Tube Scout comes in.
It analyzes the first page of the search results and tells you what keywords and tags you should use to rank high.
All you gotta do is go in, do some copy and paste, and drop them onto your videos.
