My 2 daughters love him. He is making over $15 mil. a year now with his YT channel with over 11 million subscibers.

The crazy thing is that he has given out his address to Fans and Subscribers. And they flock to his house putting graffiti on walls near it etc..etc..

He still hasn't caught PewDiePie with over 50 mil. subscribers. But Jake does crazy stuff outside while PewDiePie is sort of boring behind a mic playing Minecraft and general commentary.

    I saw a statistic the other day that said the average American spends 5.2 hours a day online via their devices (whatever form that takes.) To Internet marketers that seems pretty reasonable since this is our mode of doing business. But for someone that's just surfing, emailing, social media hopping, etc, that seems like a gigantic time drain to me.

    Jake Paul, PewDiePie, or any others . . . is there honestly any value to following them? (I don't, so I wouldn't know).

    Yea, I'm old fashioned and am not knocking these guys for how they make their living - that's up to them. But honestly, people that want to be like them who waste their time hanging on every new video that comes out - I can't help but think they are short-changing their lives when there are so many alternative ways to expand your mind, serve others, or increase your own abilities and talents.

    Wow . . . I sound like my parents did when I was a teen-ager and all I wanted to do was be with my friends. My parents were right though!

    This is massively inspiring.

    The fact I don't like the guy and don't see any value in his videos doesn't matter. I'm not his target audience.

    This video tells me that some guy I've never heard of, can go from broke to THAT in just 4 years. Some of my dodgy cooking has taken longer to digest than that.

    Most of the people here who are looking for a way to make money online are probably way smarter than this kid.

    So imagine what's possible when you; know who your audience is, and you show up and do the work everyday.

      Nope and ABSOLUTELY nope. This reminds me of another thread a few years ago where some cultural fad that made money was heralded as something to inspire to reproduce. The only thing this teaches is luck happens, fads come and go and theres no way to systematically reproduce it. Go ahead work your tail off to be the next Jake Paul, the chances are higher you will be booed for being an idiot (or a copy cat) than a success. No more than recording yourself in tight spanks will make you the next Kardashian like sensation

      For the love of Pete don't fool the newbs that there is any kind of model here they can reproduce or be massively inspired with . The whole point of a certain kind of stupid is most people haven't seen it. The market can't sustain more of it before it gets old and the dynamics of a non "have to watch this car wreck" business are entirely different.

        Don't you even suggest that I'm trying to fool anyone, Mike.

        There are hundreds of ways to make a living online - hundreds of business models and they all require the same things; know your audience and give them what they want.

        The Jackass TV show did the same thing when I was a kid. Shock jocks do the same thing now.

        This ain't your thing, it ain't mine either. That doesn't matter.

        The fact a kid like this one can achieve what he has, no matter how he's managed to do it, is hugely inspiring.

          Not intentionally no but whats the end result of thinking something can be emulated that can't be? - same result

          Shock jocks do the same thing now.
          Thats my whole point Mike. You can't count on it for inspiration because shock is only shock until its normalized (hence no longer a shock).

          This ain't your thing, it ain't mine either. That doesn't matter.
          Sure it does. Most of us wouldn't want our daughters or anyone to be inspired by the Kardashians for two reasons.

          A) it is unlikely to be successful (or else everyone trying to be like them would be successful).
          B) it doesn't bring lasting value to anyone's life.

          Despite you claiming it doesn't matter it does. We do a lot of lip service to providing value on this board, we shoot down the newbies that want to call a two page PDF a product and we bemoan the people who don't want to learn but just make money instantly. We just wash all that down the drain when we herald stupidity and empty noise as inspiring.

          If its all about knowing your target market then we all should stop complaining about income claims and get rich quick schemes cause guess what? - they know how to target their market too.

          I am not required to buy your claims that it doesn't matter and you don't have to buy mine. We both can have our opinions here and express it. The real issue is which one can logically defend their position.

              Well needs to be said because some are trying to make my comments about all youtube sensations. You can have a lot of talent and play dumb and it IS funny. Whats in the video in this thread is just not one of them. I think most youtube sensations DO have some talent even if their comedy is not my thing- acting, comedic timing, innovation funny insight etc but then theres a few that do any kind of moronic nonsense and its not talent. Itd just like someone said- shock value idiocy. Look closely at some of Jakes video likes. He has a higher than usual dislikes to likes for someone popular. They like to watch train wrecks.

              You can try and find a trick in that but I don't think there is any we already know stupid likes stupid but even among them you are just as likely to be called stupid by them as funny. Its a thin line and no formula to reproduce.

              same here. I await your first video inspired by Jake that undoubtedly will get you one or Egads! maybe not.

              You hit the WSO stereotype though - an expensive car in a video as proof a point of view is valid - this must be a MMO board. ....lol

        Wrong !! You need to do your homework , Anthony.

        Some of this YT stuff is momentarily fads where luck was involved. Your absolutely right.

        But if you would have researched even just a little bit you would have found this is NOT the case with this guy and a number of famous YT sensations.

        They actually started with a now defunct video hosting social platform called Vine. They started to build a grassroots audience one member at a time. Performing to an audience who got a kick out of their humor and not same old curmudgeon SEO cooter hanging out at the Warrior Forum

        And over time along with the others built their audience thru trial and error seeing what resonated with their Audience and what didn't.

        Vine shut down and they simply moved over to YT and carried their developed audience with them. And thru word of mouth and advertising built a HUGE following.

        Jake got hired with Disney and performed on TV to millions of people in one my kid's fav show called Bizaardvark.. He just left Disney 3 months ago.

        So see it was much more than just a stab in the dark with typical luck involved. And of course what he did was not reproducible. Not at all. It's not and you are right about that

        But it is not just some kid who started doing silly gags and it blew up and he was an overnight success.

        It was persistence and a planned gradual success/process through continuing to figure out what content ( product) resonated with a certain age group and then building fans over a period 5 or 6 years

        And thru this doing one simple thing and doing this ONE simple thing really. really well....i.e delivering to his Audience what they were hungry for. Sound familiar ??

          Well first of all given your previous admission those kind of videos grew on you I doubt we could have a rational discussion because we are not on the same wave length of rationality but I at no point stated that it applied to every YT sensation. In fact I don't think it even applies to PewDiePie .

          You can call me any name you wish "coot" or worse simply because I don't fall over and say how massively inspirational empty stupidity is. If you really believe the antics in that video are somehow a result of training and talented skill honed over years and brain heavy targeting....hahahaha.... live on in that fantasy. Many nine year old boys go on with those kind of antics. I guess they are all talented . Basically if they get a laugh they keep at it. Jake is of the same mold.

          Meanwhile The fact that its moved from platform to platform is supposed to rebut my points how? I never said Disney wouldn't hire him. Maybe you should do some research and learn to read as you claim I should. I mentioned The Kardashian family who are on TV also and probably rake in more cash (and Jake makes their show look like a show about geniuses)

          Your claim that because someone amasses a huge following its all about their great skill and honing their target market is rebutted by countless number of people who blew up by being stupid or getting on a reality TV show.

          But be my guess - prove me wrong. Go ahead and be inspired and take notes. I will watch you when you blow up on Youtube .

        Michael did NO such thing. There is no model here. He knows that, I know that.

        You must be hearing voices because you're the only one on this Thread who is even bringing this notion up lol

        Go back ad reread what he said !!

        What he said was general jargon that can be applied to any endeavor in Life, whether it be business,non business , sports, arts, music etc..etc..


        Does not take a rocket scientist to understand that

    The millennial generation is totally different to any older generations (baby boomer myself).
    If a young one doesn't have his latest phone attached to him for longer than perhaps 5 seconds, you would have to probably call an ambulance as his heart will either stop or beat so fast that his chest starts shaking.

    When I am in big shopping centres, Many of these idiots have almost bumped into me because they walk and type/talk, head down and not looking.
    I am blind in 1 eye so I stick to the left side when walking anyway and I have had a go at quite a few of them.

    The content is like seseme street level entertainment and i literally start getting a headache watching it too long

    Its just loud....the jokes are cheesy and they just do really stupid sh*t

    All that being said

    I wouldnt say its "luck"...cause you need to put out consistent effective content to gain that number of subscribers

    And whether you like it or not....its not an isolated incident

    Theres tons of these guys with massive fan bases...creating this type of content

    So maybe we've missed a trick....

      Exactly.

      And Mr. Anthony may be right when he says this kind of Success cannot be systemically duplicated on a widespread level.

      But what Mr. Anthony fails to comprehend is that these 'silly clowns' on YT that he thinks are ALL luck and No skill and which he he also thinks provide little redeeming value (at least any that we can take a lesson or two from).....are actually displaying certain basic business tenets that transcends most all successful businesses including giants like Walmart, Mcdonalds IBM etc..etc..

      What are they you say ??

      1. Building a Brand
      2. Delivering a Product that their Audience is eagerly ready to consume each and every day !

    Yes, exactly Laurence, Eastland is the worst, Knox is probably just as bad.

    When l go to Eastland, the number is F***wits staring into their phones and almost running into me, is becoming a cliche.

    But l figure that if they run into me and lose their precious dumb phone, then we will both be better off.

    Apple is bringing out an almost 2k phone soon, $2000 dollars phone tentatively held in your hand all day.

    My Mother when she goes out to a big shopping ctr she tends to have 6 or 8 foot tall teenagers almost run into her, usually a gang.

    They need to put bans on people walking around with these things while walking, bad enough we have people talking remotely to someone and sounding like total nutters.

    Yeah, but l never walked about with one strapped to my waist, and jogged, not unless l missed the school bus..

    But back then Sony Walkmans and those hand held LCI games, were the coolest things about.

    But it is much harder to knock into someone while listening to music than staring at a phone screen.

    Or driving a car.
