Well, that means that already our joy maybe has did you take the money actually? No, I checked our bank and it’s looking good But I don’t know about your personal bank account? You better check them on your own do it alone. I just paid off My loan in full, thank you. Why didn’t you tell me? Oh Oh sorry, I just hit your eye. It’s okay my loans are paid off! Wait, you actually you actually did? Okay your boobs about to fly out. Good, because my loans make me feel free That boob job paid off, huh? I’m gonna really invest now. Okay. Yeah, I’m debt free All right back to me People we have been making money full-time on YouTube and the internet for the past 1 2 3 4 Years, but for years now Why do you say YouTube and the internet show cuz there’s a lot of ways to make money and we’re about to blow your mind Well, I was gonna say we’re launching a new website, and that’s another way. We’re gonna not only here in your content make more money It’s not about money. It’s not about money. Although it I mean, it’s about – its I don’t like when people say it’s not about money It’s never been about the money, but then like you need money to pay for a place You need money to pay for a good life. You need money to fill your life with material things that you don’t need. We’ve been doing this for years We’ve also had a blog and it is to the YouTube channel called shut up and go travel go look at it now Yes, cuz we don’t read it We relaunched it. Can you hit it with a whip like the corporate spiel cuz I know you love that! Shut-Up-And-Go travel is the premier and only destination on the internet Dedicated towards millennial and Gen X content for the international mind. This is a travel blog. This is a motivation blog This is the site you’re gonna go to if you want kickin in the ass. I am sick and tired of people disrespecting my career. I Understand why people are so curious cuz it’s a new career so I don’t get too upset But also like I’m just gonna come up to me and be like, oh see you make good money off of that No People say like you don’t make money off that we want to break this down to people who are so confused who are just curious Who don’t get how people on Instagram? How do youtubers bloggers make their money? Let’s go On YouTube here is how you make money you watch this video There’s probably an ad that played you probably skip that ad that’s okay. We still make cents, cents, cents, right? It’s .05 we make cents each time somebody skips or watches the ad when you multiply those sense by thousands of people watching your videos multiplied by hundreds of videos on your YouTube channel We’re making money not only on this video but off videos that we have made like in the past four years In other words have passive income if I’m asleep. I’m making money Then you have what I like to call active income which are sponsorships or like deals that you have to negotiate Maybe most of our money like 70% comes from sponsorships and 30th is passive. So sponsors work in two ways They come to us or we go to them we used to go to them all the time because nobody cared about us now people care suddenly and Nothing has changed to put our numbers and so they come to us which is amazing! Brands keep coming! but typically the brand comes to us. But now Remember I used to be blasting those emails. We used to do everything for free like I want some new glasses I posted on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook now we don’t because we have an audience and we don’t want to look like sellouts because we know that what’s important is that you like our content you could theoretically Make every video every post a sponsored post and like make money but then you’re gonna lose You guys who watch and there’s no moral compass there like a bunch of batteries for your moral compass because yo screws are loose It like feels dirty. Can you get some Windex for that, cause that that feels dirty? We the sponsor of this video Okay Then break this down We have an audience of people who watch our videos that number Thousands of people who watch our videos is worth something to brands who want to get their message out there We get an email in our inbox from a brand They’re like Damon and Jo really want to work with you this is what we want from you Here’s the rate when we decide on a rate then what? well first we gotta really decide on the budget got to really decide on the hashtags we gotta really decide on the creative concept that takes like the longest time most times they’ll be like you want this. Yeah. That sounds good We agree sign a contract in the way Then they are like … actually Actually we were thinking … Actually we want… A scroll of hashtags And like FTC requirement, we have to develop a creative asset of Create ideas. It’s not one idea. It’s five. It’s not one caption. It’s like so it’s like seven alternative caption So that process goes back and forth. They review it They revise it they ask for edits we push back and they say no and then finally? We give in… We settle on an idea we all come together were like cool This is it We publish and then in a month’s time You pull statistics to show them what their campaign actually bought there who clicked who? Forwarded who saved it how many people looked at it? so it’s like a modern-day TV commercial except modern-day TV commercials need a lot of name will work which is going in a back end looking at stats and *mumbling* Let’s give them an example. I feel like people need examples, okay This is a battery the battery wants to sponsor the Damon and Jo channel. They have money battery has money, okay? Batteries like I have no time because I’m running this battery factory to look for who is the right influencer? So I’m gonna hire creative agency who tells me they’re gonna find the best creative Talent for me as a battery company wanting to make more money selling more batteries Battery hires. Give me an item. Battery hires the boot agency the boot agency Then reaches out to Damon and Jo. Ew! Whose are these They have a bunch of talent in here. They chose this one that’s Damon and Jo. The earplugs Then we then go back and forth with these people with the boot. It’s actually not us because it’s our manager agent. Where’s our manager? Have you heard from our manager lately? Nope, it’s a timezone thing. Okay so you got battery who hires the boot the boot reaches out to our managers the ring and then the Managers reach out to the ear plugs, which are Damon and Jo. We are going back and forth with our manager on captions on post dates on like themes of the videos of the Pictures or whatever our managers go to the agency these guys talk a lot all the time all day They like best buds, and this is important because battery’s busy selling batteries Damon and Jo are busy making videos and then boot tells the battery okay the campaign is done Ready for your approval battery, says yah… I change my mind And then goes back.. Then its like… Do it all over again But cuz we have an audience on YouTube We can make money as Talent The stars in a series that will never go on our YouTube channel you watch our channel because you like how we interact you like Let’s happening here. Now a TV show or a web series might like us to for who we are so they’re gonna hire us as actors and we’re going to take the actors job because not only Can we act and like do this ‘thing’. The dynamic thing. but also we have a following. So we are Literally actors. I don’t know why actors aren’t being like They are coming in and taking our jobs! Yeah we sure are. Again it’s not on our YouTube channel But we’ll promote it because that’s natural because we’re excited to share something that we’re a part of so it’s like a win-win for everybody Also, we’re gonna put a link in the description box below because we did a series in Brazil But I feel I can’t you feel more that you could have all Mercedes complete them into a português. Ok, I can buy show And that’s, that’s how Portuguese was the entire series. So to recap we have Adsense passive income, we don’t really have to do much we just post videos on YouTube They’re good make it counts. We make money the same way as Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner make their money. They motocross It’s Kris Jenner. Then you also have side projects like being hired as Talent a.k.a a host or actors for another project then Then there’s the all-around digital media side of things what you can do is start focusing on every passion project you’ve ever had because With an audience you can basically sell whatever you want. You can sell you jewelry you can sell clothes Once you’ve built this audience You can now release books you can go on tour and like do meetups book signings You can create merch create your own clothes create Products just anything. You can create a piece of Cloth with your name on it and sell it We have decided to create a platform for young travel Mines or old travelers. Whoever has the shut up and go mentality There are plenty of people that we meet every single day who are doing living this life that we live. They just don’t publish it online. And also there’s no place for them to gather until now So shutupandgo.travel was relaunched to day So we make money on the site similar to how we make money on the channel passive income their ads throughout the site You’re gonna be reading and an article suddenly you see an ad pop up. This is standard on all web sites That’s how websites make money. We can tell an article post to like a company that makes sense So maybe it’s a study abroad program, but we will only accept sponsors that make sense for you We get so many emails every single day about like promote my product what my product we turned down probably 99% 99.9 So the things you see on our Instagram, wherever, those are the things we were like… We thought carefully about I laid right here really thought like what are they gonna think. No really! We really do. You know sometimes I wonder if we should take more if it really bothers people to see ads it bothers us if we bother you like we don’t want to bother you we want to inspire you We don’t want… we want to make you laugh not make you cringe You know time saying tiny job their sacrifice is our job. The downsides are that we are laying in bed at 1:00 a.m and we’re like *breaths heavly* There is so much to do! Yah yah yah. There’s like you’re never finished we’re going to never fit you could always do more You could always be taking another picture you could always be editing a video better always be writing the best Caption and like this is fun for us. So while we’re never done working we love working So when somebody asks, what would you be doing if you weren’t doing this? I’d be like I’d be doing this and just not getting paid for it because that’s what I was doing before Now we get paid for it and we’re both here living full-time and we hire people to work With us and for us especially for shut up and go dot travel to make this company big This is like the vice of travel we’re the HuffPost of travel or that’s just trouble this is humor This is like not it’s not travel It’s living an international lifestyle which I think it’s categorized as travelling right but it’s not always travelling there has never been a site like this before because people don’t look at travel as Like a lifestyle they look at it as a luxury until now look at a vacation. Like I’m not on vacation l know You can eat whatever you want on vacation. I’m like… So go check out the site. We launched it today. Shut up and go travel go. Yeah. It’s beautiful We paid a lot of money for that website. Bold and Beyond, thank you so much Bold and Beyond I’m not in it for the money like Buys a Rolls Royce Oh as soon as we finish this video, no. Kanata. Stay with me o Our CPM or cost per thousand views that means that might be a little too much I just like want to run a lecture on this. She was international marketing major so. business! Thank you. Oh, I like got conned into this industry Was it a casting? The couch?
