There are thousands of YouTube channels in existence out there.
The great thing about YouTube is that as well as being a powerful content marketing tool, it’s also a HUGE place for knowledge and resource.
I mean, who needs to waste money on courses, books, and guides when they can pretty much search for, and learn about, almost anything on YouTube?
That being said, not everyone on YouTube is worth following.
Of course, everyone with a YouTube channel has something to say these days, but if you want to get the best knowledge and resources, you’ve got to follow the best users.
The kind of users I’m talking about are the ones that dedicate time and energy creating, and publishing useful and educational content on YouTube.
As a blogger and online business owner, I depend on viewing relevant, reliable, and quality video content to learn new things.
And that’s the great thing about video content, not only can you consume content on the fly, but you also feel a certain connection when ever you’re watching someone on YouTube.
Right, enough waffling on from me. Below you’ll find my top 10 favorite YouTube channels.
These are the peeps I follow and therefore recommend you follow too.
Are you ready to start expanding your knowledge and resources?
