FROM WRESTLING FAN TO FULL TIME YOUTUBER – #STARTCREATINGPODCAST 001

October 10, 2019


(funky electronic music) – [Alan] Hello, and welcome
to the Start Creating podcast, a podcast dedicated to helping
you grow on social media, from YouTube, to Instagram,
and so much more. I am your host, Alan Spicer,
your YouTube certified expert. I have round about 12
years worth of experience in this industry, from web development, to social media marketing,
and video editing in itself. This podcast will be
about news, tips, tricks, and your submitted questions, should you need any help
within the social media space. So follow, subscribe, enjoy the ride, go out there, start creating. (funky electronic music) Hello, and welcome to the very
first Start Creating podcast. Now, why am I starting a podcast? Oh, I personally tend
to get the most value out of multitasking,
and if you can win back a little bit of your own personal time, and learn at the same time without realizing you’re doing it, then it can maximize your potential. So I thought that I’d start
offering insights into my life, insights into my social media growth, and my experience with the
industry in an audio form that you can then listen to in the shower, or when you go and pick
up your stepdaughter, when you go to the corner shop. In my case, I listen to many things when I’m just sat on the
toilet, or having a bath. So I know it helps me, so
I thought I’d help you. And also, I’ll be honest,
builds a new audience, it grows the family. Maybe there’s some of you
that just don’t watch YouTube, you just don’t get, it’s fine. If I can help you using a podcast that you can find anywhere, Stitcher, whether it happens
to be on Apple iTunes, whether it happens to be Google Podcasts, there’s a wide range of places
you can get this podcast, then I can hopefully help you. And if I can share my
insights, my failures, then maybe I can enrich your life, and maybe you like this
and you share it on, or you hunt it out on iTunes and Google Play Store and stuff like that, and you kind of leave a five-star review to help spread this out to help
as many people as possible. So how is this podcast gonna go forward? Well, in the future, I do
plan on having a format. This one won’t follow that format. Today, I’m going to tell
you about my journey from teenage wrestling nerd
to a full-time YouTuber, but in future it’s going to be
broken down to a few seconds. First of all, a little bit personal news. From time to time I want
to share with you my life, whether it’s my battle with the GP, ’cause I’m terrified them,
whether it’s my plans for the future development
of my social media brand, or anything that’s going on
in my life that’s interesting that I feel that you could benefit from. Then, we’ll touch upon stuff within the industry and the business, so anything that’s in the
social media marketing world, anything that’s in the social world, whether it’s YouTube adpocalypses, whether it happens to be a
change in the YouTube system, an algorithm change, Facebook integraphics and interfaces, that kind of thing, if I can help, if I can
give you my opinion, if I can read a news article and translate it for you
whilst you’re listening, and once you’re on the go, so you don’t have to read it for yourself, then I can then give you my opinion and give you some insights there. I’ll then pick a topic that will be the general
theme of the podcast. These can be submitted by
you or it could be something that is, I feel at the time, helpful whether it happens to be how
to grow your YouTube channel, how to benefit on Instagram, why Instagram removing likes, for example, could be beneficial to all
of us, those kind of things. If you want a question answered, you simply tweet @AlanSpicerYT, using the #StartCreatingPodcast, and I can tackle those as well. And then we’ll close out each podcast with a relevant throwback
to my back catalog. Basically, I’ve around
about 300 videos on YouTube, and some of them are motivational rants or comments that I feel that can help you. So we dive back into that archive, while I serve it to you
on a silver platter, getting that juicy
knowledge from the past, because just because I’ve said it once doesn’t mean it’s not still relevant now. And hopefully, it’ll help
you on the podcast as well. (funky electronic music) Now, before we deep dive into
how I went from wrestling nerd into full-time YouTuber, I wanna help you with your YouTube game. So go to alanspicer.com/ebook
to get your free ebook with 10 top tips to starting
and growing a YouTube channel. It’s completely free, it will help guide you through every step, the core foundation of every
detail to get you started. And these are the basics that got me to where I am right now, with 6,000 subscribers
after just two years. That’s alanspicer.com/ebook,
go and get it. (funky electronic music) Now, as I’m being truly honest, and this is truly my first
podcast, I’ll be honest, the microphone failed on
the next bit a little bit, so you’re kind of
listening to inbuilt mic, hopefully you still get the story, enjoy. I’ll get better with practice, I promise. When I was 15 and 16, I
was an avid wrestling fan. I’d always loved
pro-wrestling, no matter what. I think the very first
pay per view I ever saw was WrestleMania XII, where
you had Shawn Michaels versus Bret Hart in an Iron
Man match, and I was sold, I was hooked on it for
the rest of my life, and I’m still a wrestling fan
to this day, no matter what. Anytime, you meet me in the
street, you put up my hand, you ask for my opinion on wrestling, and I’ll give it to you. I just absolutely love it. At the end of the day, it’s a
good way to escape your world. So at the age of 15, 16, I
started a wrestling fan website, it’s called fansofwrestling.com, sadly, doesn’t exist anymore. By the age of 15, 16 obviously, I was dealing with 16,000
members per forum, 16,000. All of these people are
wrestling nerds like me loving what was around
at the time, WCW, WWF, all the independent scene,
that let’s be honest, when you’re a kid at that age,
didn’t really know existed. But you’d already bought
into the idea of wrestling? You already love the drama,
you was still worrying about the whole Santa
Claus effect about it, whether or not, is this
real, is that real? I loved it, absolutely loved it. The best thing about it
is this gave me the start into my industry kind of niche. I learned how to run a forum. It was a phpBB forum and
they were terrible to code but there was a community out there that allowed you to go out and find hacks and plugins that you can
add to the code yourself. Basically, you’d go and find
a new feature that you wanted, a gallery, a download feature,
a new avatar arrangement, that kind of thing, and you’d code it in, you go by step by step, go to this line, change that code of the
PHP, go to that line, change that line of the PHP. Now, I won’t bore you with
every detail of coding, but basically, what I
did is I learned to love and offer value to the
people within the forums. Because these 16,000
people grow over time, they’d be like, Alan, it’d be great if my signature could do this, Alan, it’d be great if the forum had that, how about a game section,
how about a download section? Now, I’d got out of my
way to deliberately start adding these features,
pandering to the audience, giving them value, leading with value because there was thousands of wrestling fan websites at the time, so at the end of the day, right, I needed to offer something
that was different, I needed to offer
something that was unique, I needed to offer something that would pull them in
from other platforms. So if I could lead with value, they knew that them spending
their five, 10, 20 minutes, two hours in the evening on my site, would be a reason to keep them there, and not any other wrestling fan websites that did pretty much the same thing. A dog pile of abuse all on the topic and what was then the
wonderful show at the time, whether or not they were a WCW fan, whether or not they were
a TNA fan at the time, as it was emerging, and this is something that carried on with
me, leading with value. Now, during this time, 16, 17, obviously I didn’t need to earn my way, I had my rent paid for me by my parents. Now, unfortunately, for
some of you might know, I lost my dad when I was rather young, so this changed pretty quickly. So around about this
time, I was very lucky. I was working in the security industry, I’ve tried a bit of
banking, that kind of thing, but mainly, I was working in security. And during the security era of my wrestling-fan-website career, I bumped into someone
that later on in life, would introduced me into
my next stage of my life. So around about the age of 20, 21, I started dabbling web development. I’d already kind of been dealing with it with social media forums
and that kind of thing, but these connections led to the start of my now 12-year run in
the web development world. We started a web development company, and whilst I was still doing security, when I still man-guarding
in boots at the chemist, when I still stopping
idiots nicking perfume, and teenagers trying on makeup, because there’s nothing funnier than a teenager coming in after school, using all of the free testers
that every other minger has used throughout the rest of the day, the shoplifters and the meth heads that want to put their makeup on, there’s nothing funnier
than letting the teenager, that have just come from
school, put on half their face to compare it in the mirror, and then throwing them out the door because using the testers like that is still stealing, right? So they panic, well, can
I just do my other eye, no, no, you can’t Tiffany, I’m sorry. There’s the door. So whilst I was always dealing
with the security world and whilst I was dealing with this, I was trying to build up the
first web development company. Now, I’ll be honest, straight up front, they never, ever made me
like millions of pounds, (scoffs) I wish, but in the long run, they made me a wage, kind of. So I learned in the first
web development company that you can side-hustle, you can talk to people in your weekends, you can talk to people in the evenings, you can get home after a 12-hour shift, you can be in the taxi,
you can be on the train, you can phone people and talk to them, you can sell them a product. So I learned how to sell, I learned how to focus
on the client’s needs, what color of the
website, how the website, what’s it needs to do,
does it need to sell? And I’ll be honest, once
again, back in those days, web development was
still seen as this magic that nobody quite figured out yet. WordPress didn’t exist,
and it was so much easier to sell someone a product and service that they knew that they had to get but they didn’t understand quite yet. They knew that the power of the long term would need them to have a website, and we had the ability to build them. So I was able to sell them to them. So once I’d learned the focus on the plan, and I learned how to promote
their business socially, and I learned how to do
optimization and blogs and search engine optimization
to maximize potential, I thought, after three or four years, that it’s time for me to
take this on the road. At that time, I started
my first YouTube channel, which some of you may know, it
was very entertainment brand. Unfortunately, though, it
just didn’t chime in line with the community guidelines
that you would expect. So in the long run, I had to close it. But during this time,
I learnt how to fail. There’s nothing more
valuable to an entrepreneur, there’s nothing more valuable to someone that wants to run a business, that wants to make social
media their full-time work, than to learn to fail and
take the best out of it. I started my first company, which was Spicer Designs, many years ago, and I guess I got lazy,
I’ve done all the hard work to finally start a company,
and I had some other clients that I could take with
me to make the money to sustain my wage initially, but then I got used to the feast and famine of the web design world, chasing that next sale
to pay for the next bill, to pay for the next wage. If you’re in the web development,
if you’re a freelancer, you’ll know this, at the end of the day, you’re constantly hunting
for that next client, that next sale, that next thing that pays the builds in general. So over those two, three
years, with my first company, I learned a lot. I learned that you need to work harder, you need to put those hours in. There’s a reason why entrepreneurs
put in 16, 18-hour days, there’s reason why people don’t sleep, there’s reason why they lock
themselves into their own house and communicate only with themselves. Now, after the three years,
it went horribly wrong. I decided that that was
it, I had to admit it. I packed up my bags, I went crawling-ish back to the contacts that have previously worked for, and I went back to work
for a web design company that was kind of connected to the first one that I was part of. Now, at the time, I
felt quite crestfallen, I felt that I was a failure. I look back now and I realize that you have to learn
to fall on your face to understand that next time you put your hands down
to protect yourself while you work harder so
you don’t fall as hard. So I went back, I
swallowed some humble pie, and I went back to working
for a web development company. This time, because I’d learned how not to run a web
development company on my own, I was able to bring that
advice to the new business. I learned a new business model, I learned how to focus on those clients and to try to avoid the feast and famine, the roller coaster that is
living from sale to sale. So instead of me selling a
website for thousand pounds, and knowing that that
can sustain the business for the month, I realized that you needed to dial it back a bit, go
for the monthly options, in which you can help
someone on a regular basis in which you can be
their consistent helper, you can offer them value,
and if you keep them around, they’ll give you two,
three, 400 pounds per month. It may not be the thousand pounds that you get for that specific
website sale in one lump, but because you’re offering value, and you’re consistently
proving that value, they will stay with you longer. Also, instead you getting
one or two website sales, and then having find something brand new to convince to sell another
website to next month, right, just to meet that profit and loss, just to reach that wage run to make sure that all the staff are paid, if you’re running on a
month-to-month basis, and you’re entertaining people, instead of you having to
seduce a new person every week, you simply keep the people
that you already know happy, and they’ll continue to pay you. So instead of me having to find 50 people over the course of the year to make sure that I cover the wages, I just keep three or four people happy and I cater to their needs. Now, I continued to run along this line, work with a few blue chip companies in relation to that company at the time, unfortunately, I’m not
able to communicate, subject to NDA and that business, but I learned a lot from
small to medium businesses, and the big blue chippers. And then after a couple
of years, it was time. Fortunately, the business
didn’t feel like that. The business that I’d come to work for just couldn’t sustain staff, it was going through a rough patch. And at that time, instead of me feeling that I’d fallen on my face again, I learnt to put my hands
out and brace myself. It was time for me to take the skill that I’d already been doing at this point, to make YouTube content
on a regular basis. But instead of it being
entertaining and funny and slightly crude, I decided that it was
time to start educating. So I started the Alan
Spicer YouTube channel, where I teach you
everything about YouTube, how to start a YouTube channel, how to grow a YouTube channel, how to push your brand out there onto the second largest
search engine on the Internet and start creating with you. Now, during this time, I realized that I have
to plan it properly. I’d learned from the YouTube
channel on the other side that had already had 40,000 subscribers and already gained 30
million, 40 million views, that if you pick a niche, and
you really drill down into it, you can bring value and
you can build an audience. Now, at the time, I was
unable to bring the audience over from the other YouTube
channel, because as I said, it wasn’t in line community guidelines, it wasn’t the same niche, so I closed it. At the end of the day, it was a very painful
situation to do at the time but I believe now is
the right thing to do. Because I needed to focus on my business, I needed to focus on something that I knew was my long-term growth, and my long-term future. So I buckled down, I put
my nose to the grindstone, I picked a niche, which was
teaching you how to youtube, and I planned my channel. Initially, to be honest,
the videos are hideous. But all videos, all YouTube
channels are hideous when you first start, right. I stuck to the niche. I was determined to slam
out three videos a week, something that was helpful,
something that was searchable. Now, once again, when I first started, I put out the wrong stuff. I was more character-driven,
I was more personalized, I wasn’t specifically helping
you with your problem, I was just generalizing. And how many YouTube consulting channels, how many YouTube channels
have you seen that, where they’re like, yeah,
this is how you do it and they’ll give you 10 vague tips, and then by the end of you
haven’t got any value out of it. So I started to drill down, and I realized that if I started on this
marathon, this YouTube marathon, and I understood that
it’s no longer a sprint, that I’m not just gonna put up one video and get loads of views,
if I put my shoes on and get ready to jog, I can run the marathon that is YouTube. So I started teaching. I started teaching you how to youtube, while at the same time still
creating web development sites, I still had to create sites, I still had to find those clients, but I was starting to
pick up retainer clients, I was starting to pick up YouTube clients and editing clients. And in the long run, I realized that the future
was in making multiple people and juggling those multiple people and keeping those on retainers. So the web development
helped me, initially, for the first two years, feed myself, whilst I built the YouTube
channel for two years. It took me around about 16 to 18 months to get 3,000 subscribers,
but because of the legwork, because of me doing 16 to 18
hour days, because I sacrificed and I got up at four
o’clock in the morning, five o’clock in the morning, I got those extra hours in,
I was able to grow the brand, I was able to do that SEO, I
was able to do the thumbnails, I was able to make those phone calls, I was able to record those videos. There’s 300 videos now on the
Alan Spicer YouTube channel, and it was that grind that
built the back catalog, that gave me the reputation
to make the connections that I have now, to now
be full time on YouTube. Because every client that I work with now is directly related to my YouTube work. If I edit video for them,
whether I consult for them, whether I actually directly have hands in on the content that they create. So I started this run, I started teaching. And as the feast and famine roller coaster of web development was able to phase, I was able to focus solely
on the YouTube world. Even to the point where,
20 months after I started, I am here today, I’m sat here
creating my very first podcast to continue to help, to continue
to expand to the community. I have nearly 6,000 subscribers
and nearly 600,000 views on an educational channel
in less than two years. I’m aiming for 10,000 subscribers
by the end of this year, I’d love to have a Christmas gift, my birthday is in November, 10,000 subscribers should be good, and that’s my short-term mini goal, ’cause if I can give me
something, a stepping stone, the next thing that I can aim at, I know that I can then look at my content, I can maximize the what’s there, I can analyze what did well,
I can analyze what didn’t, I can talk to my community, which is you, and understand what you
need to continue to ask and answer those questions that you need to have to grow yourself. In the long run, I’d love to
have that silver play button, because I nearly did it before, I nearly, but because I chose to step away from something that could have got there but wasn’t sustainable,
I truly believe that by the time that Silver Play
Button finally is in my hands, I would have earned it. I could have got it by now,
but I wanted to do the legwork to be a respectable channel
to offer value to you. Because at the end of the day,
if I can expand your brain, if I can help educate you in some way, that means more to me than some kind of smart
joke or a sex toy testing. Now, if some of you have seen
those, then you’re welcome. They’re probably ultra
rare by now, but enjoy. Now, the podcast is here
to help more people. The long-term goal is the
Silver Play Button, right? And if this is reaching you right now, and in this wonderful new medium, you’re listening to me whilst
you’re doing the housework, or whilst you’re in
the gym, or on the bus, or in the shower, or in bed, I love you, and hopefully you can come
along on this journey with me. You can help me, and we can
write the next chapter together. Here I am starting with 6,000 subscribers, I wanna dedicate the Silver Play Button to you and this community, right? I want this Start Creating podcast to be a standard bearer of pure honesty, I will share everything I
can with you to help you, from my back history to what I learn now, to what I learn in the future, because if I can learn something, and it helps me and I can teach you, then in five years time, we
can be sat in that airport, we can be sat in that coffee
shop and you can reach over, you can shake my hand, we can chuckle about whatever you’re
having problems with, and we can grow together. At the end of the day,
what I want you to do is to go out there and start creating. And maybe when I retire,
and I’m 80 years old, I’ll start a second YouTube channel, teaching about how to
be a retired YouTuber, (mutters).
(funky electronic podcast) Now, to end out this podcast this week, I’m gonna throw it back to a episode that was on my YouTube
channel just the other week, in which it ties in perfectly, which is YouTube is a
marathon, and not a sprint. I rant where I highlight to you exactly how hard it is to start
and grow a YouTube channel and how some people just
don’t really realize the legwork involved. Enjoy, and I’ll see you soon.
(funky electronic music) YouTube, it’s one of those things that many people get wrong. Many people get impatient, many people like to look at
others and go for the sprint. I’m here to tell you
that YouTube’s a marathon and not a sprint, whilst I’m
walking along my local canal. (upbeat music) This has become one of my
favorite things in the morning, I drop off my wonderful stepdaughter, and she goes off to
nursery and in the process, I gain, like an hour
and a half, two hours, where the world’s not fully
awake, they’re off to work, but because I work from home, I kind of get this weird buffer zone where everyone’s manic and
focused on their own world, and I’ve got the canal, (chuckles) which means you might
get a few more of these because this is my little
mini marathon every morning, going for a stroll, whilst your marathon should be the one that’s on YouTube. Now, so many people look at YouTube and see the established
YouTube stars and they’re like, well, they’re making that content and how can they make that
content and still survive? How come today with that
type of quality of content is the top person? Let’s have a look at
PewDiePie, for example, his content nowadays isn’t
hugely high production, it never has been, let’s be honest, but he has now close to
100 million subscribers and people look at him and go, well, he started off by
screaming at a camera and now he’s got millions of views. If he can do it, I can do
it, I could do that better, I can do that in a week. People don’t consider the hard work that it takes to get to where
he was in the first place. This is the whole marathon
versus sprint idea. Basically, he’s been on YouTube
for, I don’t know, 10 years, and in the process, he’s
amassed 100 million subscribers. I started this journey on time ago, just not necessarily directly on YouTube. I initially started in the industry when I was a web developer
for a web development company and within that time, I
learned how to create titles, write blogs, optimize websites, sought out search engine optimization. When I first started this
channel, I was so, so happy if one video got 40 views
within their first month, with their first week. I was so happy if I gain 10
subscribers the first month, that should be how it is, it makes you understand
and appreciate every view. Now come on, let’s be honest, there’s gonna be very
few of us that ever pop, there’s gonna be very few of
us that ever explode and grow, that make this a full-time thing. But there are ways that
you can help yourself. I have read about 300
videos on this channel. Out of those 300, some of them
do well, some of them do not. (laughs) Now, the advantage is that if you have that back catalog,
you can bolster yourself, you can create enough content
that you become searchable, you create enough content that
people will find you in time. It’s kind of like brute forcing it. Now, over the last 20 months, I’ve gone from getting 10,
20, 30, 40 views a week to getting two, 3,000 views per day, and the back catalog helps with that. People will find you, people
will enjoy one of your videos, and they’ll go and binge watch
the rest of your content. But 300 videos doesn’t happen overnight. 300 videos is time, effort, dedication, and understanding your niche
or what you want to talk about, what your audience is looking for. It has taken me months and months on end to get to a point where last month, I gained an extra seven, 800 subscribers. And the month before that 600, 400, 200. For ages, I was struggling
at around about 10 a month. But it’s because of this commitment, because of these videos,
because of this back catalog, that it snowballs. It is the running the marathon of YouTube that helps you grow. You’re not going to go from
one to 1,000 subscribers in a day, no matter what
charlatans say on the Internet. Now, that being said, I may be growing at 700-odd subscribers
a month at the moment, I may have gained 2,000 subscribers in the last three months, but I’m still seen as a small YouTuber. I don’t have 10s of
thousands of subscribers, I don’t have a Silver
Play Button, just yet. You might have a few hundred subscribers, you may be looking at me and thinking, well, you know, Alan’s got
five, 6,000 subscribers, he’s a big YouTuber, you
might be looking at me and thinking, well, Alan
went full time on YouTube with 3,000 subscribers, he
even made a video about it, but I’m not the typical YouTuber. I have a business that
runs alongside YouTube, consulting people, I sell
products and services, I sell my time and the 11 years that I was in web development before now, act as my income not as a web developer, as a consultant, as an SEO
expert, as a video creator, as a YouTube consultant
that continues to grow and proves he can grow. So even in my shoes right now, I’m still running the marathon. So you may have 100 subscribers, and I may have 6,000 subscribers, but the marathon is still there to be run. I’m not sprinting my way to success. The success that you were looking
at from the big YouTubers, like PewDiePie, who does crappy
videos nowadays or whatever. If you’re starting on YouTube right now, I honestly, truly suggest you
have a five-year plan in mind. Where do you wanna be in five years time, what do you need to do to get to it, and work your way back from that. So five years time, you might
want to have 1,000 videos, you want to be getting X amount of views, and maybe a subscriber count. Now, you have a look at the things that you can control in that situation. You can control how many
videos you’ve made, right, within that five-year period,
can’t necessarily control how many people choose
to subscribe to you, but you can control how
well your videos are, you can control if you’re
getting better, or tweaking them, or if you’re dialing into your niche, sort out the five-year plan and the views and subscribers will follow. And most importantly, never give up. At the end of the day, if you
are running this marathon, if you run two, five, seven, 14, 20-odd miles of this marathon,
why would you give up before you hit the end of
the race, never give up. So many people, so many more
talented people than me, have created YouTube channels, and I’ve seen them come and
go, and I miss those people. They may be part of the old movie club, they maybe part of their
own little YouTube bubble, but they’ve come, and they’ve
gone, and they’ve disappeared and they gave up too soon. It’s time for you to go with the flow and maybe go for a walk
on your local canal, because you never know how
beautiful the life is around you. These hidden gems could be
just around your corner. (funky electronic music) Thank you for listening to

    Thatโ€™s interesting that you have the podcast here too. I jumped on iTunes and left a 5 star review (region Australia) did you know that iTunes reviews are region based? Iโ€™d had people tell me that they had left a review and I couldnโ€™t find them, until I realised this. Do you know of a way of reading your iTunes reviews from all around the world at the same time?

    I really enjoyed your podcast Alan, great advice as always.

    I'm a wrestling fan also, I am looking forward to AEW & see how it will play out as a promotion going forward.
