There are millions upon millions of channels on YouTube today.
The great thing about YouTube is that as well as being a powerful content marketing tool, it’s also a HUGE place for valuable ‘on-the-go’ knowledge and resource.
I mean, who needs to spend money on courses, books, or guides, when they can pretty much search for and learn about almost anything on YouTube?
Yep, there’s a lot of content on YouTube, that much can be said, however, not everyone’s content is worth consuming.
Of course, everyone with a YouTube channel has something to say these days. But, if you want to get the most from watching YouTube videos, you’ve got to follow the users that are providing the best possible and most honest value.
The kind of users I’m talking about are the ones that dedicate time and energy to creating and sharing useful, educational content on their channel.
As a blogger and internet business owner myself, I rely heavily on viewing relevant, reliable, and educational content to learn new things.
That’s the great thing about video content, not only can you consume content that will help you learn about or improve something, but you can consume content on the fly.
Almost everyone has a smartphone these days, so what better way to watch your ‘favorite ‘how to’ tutorial videos than on the go, right?
You feel a certain special connection whenever you’re watching someone on YouTube.
That’s the other beauty with videos. It can certainly instill trust and credibility, much more than when consuming content on any other type of medium. I think so anyway.
Right, enough waffling from me.
Below you’ll find my top 10 favorite YouTube channels to follow.
I’ve been following some of these channels for many years, and if you haven’t started to, yourself, I’m sure you’ll benefit and find value by being a subscriber.
