Regardless of what business or industry you’re in, at some point, you have to make a sale. Whether you like selling or hate it, you can’t avoid the fact that the only way to make money is to sell something.

Yet the truth is that the majority of people trying to make money online struggle to do so for that very reason. Even if they have an amazing product, they can’t seem to make a sale.

If you’re an entrepreneur or a business owner and you aren’t using YouTube, there’s never been a better time than now.

That’s because YouTube recently invested 20 million dollars in educational content. That’s right. YouTube wants to push content that informs, explains, and problem-solves to the forefront of its platform.

After hearing that, you should be asking a ‘why’ question and a ‘how’ question. “Why are they doing this?” And, “How can I leverage this?”

In September of 2016, researchers at Google gave away the keys to the kingdom (at least that’s what I think and what I’m about to explain).
