How to Build a Converting Community on YouTube with Sunny Lenarduzzi – Ep 36

Today we have Sunny Lenarduzzi here to share her insights on how to build a converting community using YouTube. This is the final interview in our 6-part series about how to build a converting community online.

Sunny is an award-winning video, social media, and online business strategist. She’s worked with hundreds of clients across multiple industries – helping Hootsuite develop a YouTube series that increased subscriptions by 75% and Applebee’s hit 1 billion impressions in 1 day. Sunny was named one of 20 Must Watch YouTube Channels That Will Change Your Business by Forbes and she’s been featured on national radio, television and online platforms like Entrepreneur.com and The Huffington Post.

Question: Why do you like YouTube as a marketing tool?

Answer: I ran a consultancy for years and was doing just Twitter and Facebook at the time and built successful campaigns. I had so many clients that I was feeling burned out and incapable of answering everyone’s questions.

At the time Periscope was the rage and my clients wanted to know how to integrate it into their strategy. I filmed a video to teach them what they needed to do, sent it to my clients and I woke up the next day to a couple thousand views of my video, hundreds of inquiries from across the world and inquiries in my email from people referencing my video on YouTube and wanting to work with me. It was a lightbulb moment and I started doing the videos each week based on my client’s questions about social media.

The next thing I knew, I had 50K subscribers in 12 months and I had reached over 3M people with my videos. YouTube changed my life and changed my business. In that one year I went from a tiny $50K consultancy business to a place where I hired a team of 10 people, we’ve launched a course and we continue to do high-level consulting. YouTube allowed me to reach the people on a mass scale and share my knowledge on a mass scale.

Question: How do you get people to follow you on YouTube and how do you build a community there?

Answer: I always lead with education. I focus on the entrepreneur to help them build online businesses and market their businesses easier. The theme of the channel is to “be your own boss and build your own life” and I focus on a few factors each week to get found and build my subscriber base.

First and foremost is to answer Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s), which is how he whole channel started. I also focus on trending topics and hot content, books or materials that I can leverage to build traffic.

Going back to Periscope, I was the first person to make a video about it when it was trending which made the video popular. I also look to what my community is asking on a regular basis and what they’re talking about on other platforms to incorporate into my intel. Finally,  I focus on keywords and crafting titles in a way that people are searching for them.

Question: How do you get people to take action and convert to a customer from YouTube?

Answer: I have created a foolproof formula for entrepreneurs using YouTube to leverage their traffic and viewers and turn them into customers. You tell people what to do with a specific call to action that tells them where to go next and where to find you so you can nurture those leads to conversion.

Question: How are you using the various features of YouTube?

Answer: When new features come out, I test them and try to think of unique and creative ways to use them. Because I don’t own YouTube, I don’t monetize my channel, but I leverage YouTube to build an email list that I do own and drive people to my products and services.

Women think very differently from men, what they think, and what the right things to say to them are, may remain aspects you flounder with. According to me here are the things which she will like to listen.
I love you: There is no limit to the number of times girls love to hear these three cliched, yet magical words. So, without losing the essence, utter these words to your woman as often as possible. Make sure, however, that you mean it, each time you say it.

I miss you: Whether you are in different states/countries or simply a work-day away from seeing each other, let her know that you miss being with her. A surprise SMS in the middle of the day may just make her day!
Your hair looks lovely: Of course, this is a terrible line to use on the days on which she is suffering from a bad-hair day. Nevertheless, when you are picking her up for a date, or meeting her after a certain period of time, this line may make her heart skip a beat.

You smell so good: An utterance bound to bring a glorious smile to her face will make her more confident around you.
Comments when they come straight from the heart is loved by everyone, especially the girls. Their sense of intuition helps them understand if something was said for the sake of it or it was really meant. And if you notice that straight from the heart comments are honest. Honesty is a virtue that all girls love.
