Many people enjoy watching user-generated content on YouTube and dream of creating their own channel, sharing their expertise, and becoming a respected personality in the content creation field.
But it can seem daunting to come up with ideas, shoot the footage, edit, market, monetize, and more. Sometimes, it all sounds like a foreign language.
Caleb Boxx, the seven-figure-making, 22-year-old Founder of YouTube Automation, understood this pain point for new creators and set up a business designed to share his secrets for building channels and making them profitable: automation.
Launched in 2016, the high school dropout has a staff of 200 tech experts helping clients learn to automate their videos and earn more money in less time.
What is YouTube Automation?
The idea for YouTube Automation came when Boxx was trying to manage his own web design work and regularly upload to his own growing YouTube channels. There simply weren’t enough hours in the day to develop all of his video ideas, and the hours spent behind his computer locating b-roll footage, editing, writing descriptions, and more were eating into his free time.
The young entrepreneur needed to find a way to create more content in fewer hours and feel more relaxed about the creative process. He stumbled on a way to automate videos using freelancers. Though he would still develop the ideas and scripts, he could outsource the graphics and footage, voiceovers, editing, and admin to others, leaving him free to move on to his next video or other work.
“Growth comes from doing the things that are challenging and doing them consistently,” said Boxx of starting his agency, which quickly got the attention of the entire YouTube community. Within a couple of years, the kind of faceless, automated videos that Boxx was heralding were all over YouTube, and hundreds more automated titles are added to the video-sharing site each day.
From talking to other creators, he realized that this concept had mass appeal since nearly all full-time content creators were facing the same kind of burnout and time constraints that he was. This was Boxx’s ‘eureka’ moment.
“I realized that I could set up an agency that automated videos for people as well as teach them how to do it themselves,” he said.
So far, Boxx and his clients have had remarkable success. The Founder works only four hours per week, while his combined clientele has over one billion subscribers worldwide. On the money side, some of Boxx’s best-known creators have brought in $100,000 in passive income per month using the young entrepreneur’s techniques.
About Automate Channels University
Today, Boxx has further developed his agency’s offerings and set up Automate Channels. Among the courses available now is the Mentorship Mastermind program.
For just $7,800, students are matched up with their own personal coach who works with them one-on-one to help them build their YouTube channels. Students even get to outline exactly what particular goals and milestones they hope to hit with their individual channels.
However, since it’s still new, many people don’t yet fully understand the automated video model. “There are a lot of random gurus who aren’t really giving you the right information because they don’t fully know; they’re just getting started. So, they make a video for fun and document it, but people really take that seriously. So, there are a lot of misconceptions about the automation business, especially because it’s fairly new. It’s only been around on a big level for about four years,” shared Boxx.
Boxx is the most experienced, qualified, and financially successful of the coaches in the field teaching YouTube automation. He more-or-less invented the automation concept and is the best person to explain it to a newbie creator or automation neophyte.
He also hires coaches and trainers that are well-trained and easy to learn from.
“We want to make sure people aren’t relying on various sources that could be incorrect. Now they can go to Automate Channels University and do it right. They can rely on just one community and source,” said Boxx.
With his passion and expertise, we’re sure that the steady stream of YouTubers that Boxx instructs will be among the site’s most successful creators.
