This is a Game Changer! Already Results from first few chapters

This book has changed my mindset on how I pursue my goals to grow my YouTube channel. I saw an 80% improvement in views just from starting to incorporate a few video optimization tips within this book.

Combined with engaging my VIP supporters with voting on their top 3 thumbnails I created (3 thumbnail options per video was another tip in this book). My VIP supports picked the thumbnail I was least likely to use for first place. And the views on YouTube soared from their pick.

This book is worth the thousands that other are charging for full courses! So grateful I ran across it on Nick Nimmin’s YT community tab. 🙌🏾

Every insight but how to make quality content

I'll save you the trouble of downloading this book. Listen to the analytics and not your ego. Adjust your content as necessary. The rest of the book is just the author talking about how great he is.

A must read for anyone with a channel on YT!

This book was so informative AND engaging! I didn’t know who Derral Eves was before reading this book, but now I am a super fan! Get this book. Take the FREE companion course. Apply the knowledge. And I have NO DOUBT this will work. A small testimony of my own: halfway through the book, I started implementing what Derral teaches. Testimonial videos were the most popular on my channel & I never noticed until Derral taught me how to use the data… so I started posting more of those and subscriptions have gone up! I even applied it to build up my community on IG and low and behold it worked there too! I’m SO excited for the future of my channel using Derral’s YT Formula. You won’t regret this read!

Eye Opener

I had a general idea of how YT worked amd I've acquired 218 subscribers on my own, but this book enlightened me to the details (necessary to know about) behind the generalization of YT most of us know. I've also been able to apply everything in this book to other things in my life other than YT such as goal setting, analysis on everything, other platforms, etc. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to deeper understand YT and wants to grow.

The audio book was a lazy publishing attempt.

I would give it 0 stars but the actual book had some actual things YOU CAN DO. This is basically just word for word of the actual book, not edited whatsoever. If you do not own the actual book you can't see the graphs and makes it difficult to access the links.


Memorable mention : Nice touch on having it narrated by Wojack voice. It literally felt like a Wojack video, but instead of crypto it was YouTube.

Too many pointless stories that probably do not fit with most people.

I enjoyed the actual book, but I TOTALLY REGRET getting the audiobook.

And can you stop pushing your products every 5 minutes throughout the book? Damn.

A bit too good marketing for the author

Lots of good stuff in the book to really turn the channel work into a business. The materials on the website that he quotes multiple times are unfortunately not free, I need to pay to have access to them so it is disappointing, I didn’t buy them. The author positions himself and his work in the most positive light, to me he has been using Mr Beast partnership perhaps to boost the marketing for Mr Beast and himself. Very good book for a hardcore entrepreneurs with the mission to make money through YouTube. I am more casual about that, happy with my full time job. Book was insightful and helpful to me to. Just cringed on those stories with “how amazing I am and how my clients thrive because of me” messaging.

DISAPPOINTED I have no access to the online material

Really liked listening to this audiobook but am really upset that I cannot access any of the online content and course despite reaching out to the team for support!!

Commenting figures I cannot see and tools I cannot use is very frustrating!

If I ever get access to this I’ll be much happier

Subliminal but reasonable

I enjoyed it but had to fast forward often. I knew it would be a self plug Book and thought I could handle it if the information was worth it. sadly the constant case studies of he and his clients became a Chinese torture for me by chapter 7. it has good information but dredging for it was time consuming and in many cases it didn't deliver logical actionable answers but gave you a semblance of an answer but lacking the meat unless you go to a website. It may be my brain but would have liked less me talk and more action talk. The narrator has a reasonable voice for factual information books.
