Founder of Lockergnome, the blog on technology news, the erstwhile TechTV host, a software tester, and engaged with so many more things, Chris Pirillo is also a passionate video presenter.
Searching Chris Pirillo on YouTube brings no less than about 500 results, and though not all of them are his or Lockergnome’s, an overwhelming majority does belong to him. And pray consider what a large range of topics they are on..!
I’m particularly enamored by the one in which he holds forth on how to make money online. His nearly 12-minute tete-a-tete on the topic opens up new vistas for people who have just taken in to the Internet looking for decent earnings.
Even those who are at it for a while and have already dipped their feet in the so-called uncharted waters of the net will stand to benefit from the depth of his knowledge.
Chris says that to succeed online one has to find a niche and dominate it (run with it). No second opinion there, but the common dilemma for many is how to do that.
While Chris’ video I refer above (see it below, and read about it here) can certainly remove many a dilemma, the one thing that distinctly stands out is that his Lockergnome already has 698 videos as of this writing, having joined YouTube just a year back. That roughly translates to 2 videos every single day.
Okay, it’s pretty difficult to match that awesome figure, but if you can do about say 200 targeted videos a year (remember YouTube is free), you can be assured of solid traffic to your site. Once that happens, monetizing the traffic becomes relatively easy.
If anything, Chris Pirillo teaches us to ‘just do it’. Meanwhile if you want to know a bit more of Chris’ mind, head over to Darren Rowse’s April 2005 interview of him – old but still gold.
