This week we continue with YouTube as our topic focus, but we're going to look at it from a different angle. Carla Harris is the Social Bard - a consultant who focuses on helping businesses and creators grow their YouTube and online video audiences by helping direct more traffic and activity to their video content.
How effective is Carla? Well, since he started consulting with the 'How To Be A Great Game Master' channel on YouTube in March 2016, their subscriber numbers have risen 2083%, and they're currently sitting on over 11,000 subscribers.
You can find out more about The Social Bard on her website. You can also follow her on both Facebook and Twitter, but best of all you can find her on YouTube! And finally, if you'd like more information about the Palaeontological Scientific Trust that Carla spoke about during the podcast, you can find it at their website.
This episode, we step into the world of YouTube creators in South Africa. Chantelle Alexander (or Chani_ZA as she's better known) is not only a YouTube creator, but also one of the co-hosts for the NAG podcast. We sat down to chat to this console gamer girl about her path to geekdom and why she chose to jump into YouTube content creation.
Tayla Barter, otherwise known as Kinpatsu Cosplay, started cosplaying for the first time just over four years ago. Since then, the South African has gone on to amass over 100,000 followers on Instagram and Facebook alike, and is now looking to make cosplay her full time profession.
There's a lot going on at Release The Geek, and GeekXP in general - too much for an intro, but not enough for an hour's discussion. The answer? Our first Sub-Podcast!
The month of March is upon us and once again got our good friend Chris Dean in our third chair! Have you ever wanted to start a new hobby but don't know where to start? Perhaps you've heard of something peripherally and just haven't had the time to investigate?
Well, we here at Geek Of All Trades are big fans of new hobbies and trying something new, so we've selected two hobbies to give you the low down on and help you check out today!
With the advent of the new Horyzen processors, we would be remiss in not chatting about the hobby of PC modding and if that isn't your thing, we also cover the basic gist of the more physical outside adventures involved in Live Action Roleplaying (or LARPing)
Tune in to start a new hobby today!
