You don't need thousands of subscribers, expensive gear & equipment, lots of videos or a big channel to succeed on YouTube.
You do, however, need to create PRO Videos that attract your ideal audience and position you as the go-to expert. And you can do that with your first (or next) 10 videos.
Look at these MASSIVE OPPORTUNITIES that happened as a result of creating my first 10 videos on YouTube
When I first started my YouTube channel in 2015, I created my first few videos from my bedroom with some basic equipment.
And then I quit. I didn't have a plan and wasn't able to see how to leverage my videos for greater impact.
- Then in 2016, I applied to one of the biggest marketing conferences in the world - INBOUND - and was accepted, based on a video I'd uploaded to my YouTube channel!
- Also in 2016, I applied for, and was accepted to be featured in Entrepreneur - a magazine with over 500,000 subscribers!
- I applied to, and was accepted as an affiliate for TubeBuddy and earned my first $$ from my channel (even before being monetized)
- I was able to land my first-ever brand deal at $700 as a direct result of my YouTube channel
That's when I finally had my epiphany!
Winning on YouTube wasn't just about views & subs - it was how much credibility you could get from creating videos and how many opportunities can open up for you if you do it right.
Those 10 videos I created initially, went on to position me as a credible authority with topic expertise.
And my niche wasn’t even YouTube Marketing when I first started!
You don’t actually need to have your final niche dialled in to start.
And because I had this realization, in 2017, I was able to go full force in my YouTube channel and started creating videos consistently.
Because by now I knew the POWER of YouTube (and it went so far beyond likes & subs)
That's when I started going after BIGGER & BIGGER opportunities:
- I became an affiliate for brands like Camtasia, Teachable, Canva and more.
- I partnered with brands such as HubSpot, Wave Video, Logitech, TubeBuddy, and many more!
- I received my YouTube Certified badge
- I built my email list to almost 10,000 subscribers
- I created a Facebook Group with 4000 members
- I launched my courses and coaching programs
- I got invited (and paid!) to speak at some of the biggest video marketing conferences in the world, such as Social Media Examiner, VidCon, VidSummit and more.
And I haven't even mentioned the BIGGEST life change due to YouTube yet: I moved to a paradise island in Portugal on the strength of the business I've built thanks to my YouTube channel.
Truly, YouTube changed my life, and those initial 10 videos showed me how to do it.
Your first (or next) 10 videos can position you as an expert.
The course that shows you, step-by-step, how to create your first (or next) 10 professional videos that attract your ideal audience and position you as the go-to authority in your field
YouTube Launchpad is an online course that will show you exactly what your first 10 videos should be and how to create them, so that you are perceived as an authority immediately.
I designed YouTube Launchpad for online entrepreneurs (such as coaches, consultants, etc) and solopreneurs who are creating and running a channel by themselves (or with limited support).
Typically, you want to build your personal brand with YouTube and use your videos to attract your ideal audience.
This course will take you from being unsure and inconsistent with YouTube to knowing EXACTLY what videos to create to attract your target audience.
Most YouTube courses focus on getting you to increase your views, subscribers and likes.
This course, however, goes beyond the vanity metrics and focuses on getting you quality views from your ideal audience so that you can build a strong personal personal brand from your channel and become the go-to authority in your field.
Having a strong personal brand on YouTube positions you to then create your digital products, offer courses or memberships, become a sought-after consultant, coach or speaker, author a book, get invited for interviews, get brand deals and affiliate commissions, start your own online store, and so much more!
You can power up your entire personal brand with video after taking YouTube Launchpad!
If your goal is to share your knowledge and expertise, appear credible and trustworthy and become the go-to authority in your field, then YouTube Launchpad is for you!

"Learning so much I didn't know!"
"OMG, the click through rate is insane!"
This course is best suited to online entrepreneurs. If you are a coach, consultant, author, speaker, trainer, or a personal brand in any capacity, this course is tailor made for you!
This course is not for "YouTubers" - people who primarily want to make money from YouTube AdSense. This course is not for you if you are a hobby video creator or are using YouTube to dump content from elsewhere.
I've taught clients in diverse fields such as career psychology, marriage counselling, movie script writing, cooking, health and nutrition, app development, barbering, and even pizza restaurants! The course follows a proven system that works in any niche provided you are going to put in the work.
I typically recommend starting with what you have because the more tech you add, the steeper your learning curve will be. That said, I do recommend using TubeBuddy's paid version for keyword research since that's an essential part of the course (a link for a 30 day trial period is included in the course). Anything else is optional.
The course follows a methodical step-by-step structure laid out in specific and very practical detail. All you have to do is implement it exactly as I've laid it out to build the foundations of your channel and brand. The YouTube videos are pieces of the puzzle; the course is the whole dang blueprint!
Hopefully, as long as the Internet and YouTube exist ;)
Hopefully, you go on to create your next 10, and then 10 more and 10 more and so on. The foundational lessons you'll learn from this course can be scaled to achieve the growth you desire!

"That tagline did it!"
I gotta tell you. Getting my tagline right has opened up years of consternation and allowed me to see very clearly how this all needs to come together. I think the key for me is the way you organise your thinking around branding. You put first things first. That first step was a big one for me. In my practice working with people I do two very distinct things but I could never determine how they came together from a messaging standpoint. That tag line did it! Thanks again.

"Each video does get easier"
I was able to knock one video out the first week of August in about 8 hours. That felt pretty good. On Monday, for the first time, I batch recorded two videos. I published one late Tuesday, and it feels really great to know I already have next week’s video recorded. Each video does get easier.
And, surprisingly, during the last 30 days I picked up 23 new subscribers to my email list. I have no clue what triggered the sudden increase in subscribers but I feel encouraged and determined to keep at this video business!
Thank you Salma Jafri for showing the way!

But Salma, what if it doesn't work for me? Or I don't have time to take another course.
Or I can't afford it just yet. Or I'm not sure about my niche. Or...or...or...
Look, you want to grow your visibility & authority with YouTube, but you don't want to put in the time, money or resources? Hmmm.
I believe you might have some valid excuses, but they are still excuses.
The hard truth is if you want something you've never had, you have to do something you've never done. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over & over and expecting different results.
You have to jump in, scared. You know you need help, but you're scared to go all in.
Let's call it what it is - FEAR.
It's okay to be scared. I was too. And I'm not somebody who had any unique powers. The only difference is that I DECIDED to do whatever it takes to grow my channel and my business. I COMMITTED TO ACTION in spite of the fear.
That's all I'm asking you to do. COMMIT and take action on your dreams.
It all starts with the first step. Ask yourself "If not now, then when?" There will always be a reason to procrastinate. You just have to start before you're ready.
I believe in you. I believe you are here because you want it bad enough.
With a little bit of tough love,
