Web Design HTML vs WordPress Which is Better?
 
05:15
HTML vs WordPress, which one is better for web design? If you're a web designer today to be honest you'll need to know HTML/CSS and WordPress as well as several other skills to be successful. However there are valid reasons to use HTML or WordPress over the other depending on the situation and what you are trying to accomplish. I prefer for my own business website to prioritize HTML and PHP instead of content management system. However for a larger website/article based site or magazine or blog obviously WordPress and content management systems are superior. But one of the issues with WordPress is that there are some security risk when using free plugins and widgets. These can also break the look and feel of your website. If you need to build a website, regardless of whether you are using HTML or WordPress I recommend a few web hosting companies that I use for my sites and sites I've worked on with clients: HOSTGATOR WEBHOSTING http://robertoblake.com/hostgator BLUEHOST WEBHOSTING http://robertoblake.com/bluehost WIX WEBHOSTING http://robertoblake.com/wix NAMECHEAP WEBHOSTING http://robertoblake.com/namecheap MAIN AUDIO SONG FROM JAMES SEWELL https://soundcloud.com/james-sewell-13/11-15-16-original-instrumental-by-james-sewell AUDIO MUSIC & SOUND FX http://audioblocks.refr.cc/K9MSL3S JOIN CREATE AWESOME COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER http://goo.gl/EywY3S MY YOUTUBE SETUP http://amzn.to/1TwiZjD RENT CAMERA GEAR https://lumoid.com/?invite=3C46I86Q LISTEN TO THE PODCAST https://goo.gl/SEQmn8 GET A CREATE AWESOME SHIRT! http://goo.gl/lsr8uY SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE AWESOME https://youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=robertoblake2 CONNECT WITH ME ONLINE http://robertoblake.com http://twitter.com/robertoblake http://facebook.com/robertoblake2 http://periscope.tv/robertoblake http://instagram.com/robertoblake Disclaimers: all opinions are my own, sponsors are acknowledge.

Graphic Design: The Difference Between Art and Design
 
04:16
http://youtu.be/QLMJjzJ7g4Y Graphic Design: The Difference Between Art and Design. Most people think of art and graphic design as being the same, or that graphic design is just another form of art. Art and Graphic Design, or Design in general, are very different. While they have much in common art and design serve different goals and have different goals behind them. The simplest way to explain the difference between them is that Art is Expressive while Design is about Communication. This is why Design used to be referred to as Visual Communication and in truth its still the more correct term. http://robertoblake.com http://robertoblake.com/blog http://twitter.com/robertoblake ------------------------------------------------------ The Difference Between Art and Design, Art vs Design, Art vs Graphic Design, What is the Difference Between Art and Design,

Top 5 Tips for Starting a YouTube Channel
 
09:53
Top 5 Tips for How to Start a YouTube Channel Starting a Successful YouTube channel can feel rough. Most people start a YouTube channel without thinking it through. Before you can hope to grow a YouTube channel, build an audience get views and get subscribers on YouTube, you should really have a plan for what content you want to create, who you think will watch it and why they should care about your channel in the first place. If you don't do these things when starting a YouTube channel, growing the channel is going to feel like a struggle. Most content creators worry too much about what will be popular instead of what they are good at talking about what will get them or people like them excited. When you're starting a YouTube channel, think about exactly who should be a subscriber and why. If you can't explain what you're channel is a about in 10-25 seconds, you're probably going to lose people. They make up their minds very quickly about what is worth their time, so don't waste it. If you really want to know how to grow a YouTube channel, think about the channels you're subscribed to and why you watch them. Think really hard and list 5-10 reasons you watch them instead of something else. Now try and do that for your own channel. When growing a YouTube channel avoid copying other YouTubers. It might be tempting to try and mimic someone that you admire or think is successful, but if you do that the odds are you will fail and you won't grow a YouTube channel successfully. People won't be interested because you're not being authentic and it will show.

Why You Need a 35mm Lens DSLR Tutorial
 
04:34
Why You Need a 35mm Lens DSLR Tutorial. The are a lot of reasons to buy a 35mm lens for your DSLR camera. In this DSLR Camera Tutorial I'll be reviweing the reasons a 35mm lens is great for photography and video and why you need a 35mm lens in the first place. 35mm Lenses are fixed focal length lenses often called Prime Lenses. They are amazing for getting shallow depth of field and bokeh in your photography and video shots. With a 35mm Lens you can shoot at higher apertures like f/1.8 and f/2.2 which will allow you to shoot in low light situations and create the shallow depth of field effect for portraits and for a film look in video. Prime Lens Options from Amazon: 35mm Nikon f/1.8 DX AF-S Lens $195 http://amzn.to/1yryDBZ 50mm Nikon f/1.8 DX AF-S Lens $216 http://amzn.to/1G56Ic3 85mm Nikon f/1.8 DX AF-S Lens $496 http://amzn.to/1yE6GFR 50mm Nikon f/1.4 DX AF-S Lens $424 http://amzn.to/1w1WXHo Nikon 85mm f/1.4 AF-S Lens $1599 http://amzn.to/1s1txuI Nikon 24mm f/1.4 AF-S Lens $1929 http://amzn.to/1wO7Lf9 35mm Canon EF f/1.8 Lens $599 http://amzn.to/1BqDvIH 50mm Canon EF f/1.8 Lens $125 http://amzn.to/1G57dD4 85mm Canon EF f/1.8 Lens $419 http://amzn.to/1yE75Iw Some 35mm Lens Options From BH Photo Video http://goo.gl/xquXi0 AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G DX Lens $196 http://goo.gl/9EEBrS AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G Lens $1699 http://goo.gl/m6xQiC Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM Lens $1,479 http://goo.gl/lzuou3 Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras $899 http://goo.gl/oGAi5a Sony 35mm f/1.8 DT Alpha A-Mount Standard Prime Lens $218 If you want critiques on your photos post on my wall at: http://facebook.com/robertoblake2 Follow Me Online!

Passive Income: Does Affiliate Marketing Really Work?
 
10:28
The Truth about Passive Income and Affiliate Marketing: Passive Income and Making Money Online is something most people are skeptical about. How do you make money online? Does Affiliate Marketing work or is it a scam? How does passive income really work? I have to answer these questions all the time. So I made a video to address how affiliate marketing works, how it can help you generate passive income, and why so many people don't believe it does really work for making money online. HOW DOES AFFILIATE MARKETING WORK You can either actively work at selling products for a company to make a commission or you can build systems that do it for you. You can do this in the form of a website or blog, a podcast or a YouTube channel or an Ebook. These things ARE passive because after the initial work is done, you are making money without any additional work your part. Some people will say, well you still have to market or promote those things.... those people aren't actual marketers or they would know that most marketing can be automated at this point, or requires less effort than texting your spouse... You can put systems in place to handle that effort. A YouTube video I made 6 months ago, made me an extra $1000 in Nov. 2016. Work I did 6 months ago, made me another $1k in profit. You don't need a large audience to be successful at affiliate marketing if you know your audience and you are selling something they have a demand for. If you had an audience of 100 but 10 people buy something and you make $100/each from them, its better than somone who has an audience of 10,000 that only got the same 10 people to buy, because if you maintain your conversion rate, as your audience grows, you'd make more money than them.

Are Graphic Design Jobs Going Away? | Becoming a Graphic Designer
 
05:27
Getting a Job as a Graphic Designer is tough. Yet it's never been a better time to become a Graphic Designer. Graphic Design Jobs are hard to find, but here is how you compete... HOW TO BECOME A GRAPHIC DESIGNER & GET HIRED The traditional Graphic Design Career and Design Job is becoming a thing of the past and the Graphic Design Job Market is more saturated than ever when it comes to 9 to 5 Employment. You have so many competing options where employers are concerned. Crowdsourcing, Overseas outsourcing, freelancers, Fiverr... there is a lot stacked against Graphic Designers. Yet with a growth in entrepreneurship and start up culture, and more awareness around what graphic designers do, there is also more opportunity than ever, that is why it is so saturated. Instead of working 9 to 5 and then going freelance, the opposite is what is working for most designers now. Social Media and talking about their design work, instead of the work speaking for itself, is giving people opportunity and allowing them to be discovered. Using Spec Work to get access to people and resources is working in people's favor instead of turning into horror stories left and right. In short, unconventional methods, will keep you from being lumped with everyone else. Use your creative problem solving skills and create and opportunity where only a problem existed.

How to Find Your First Graphic Design Clients Getting your first graphic design client is something new freelance graphic designers often struggle with. This Is Probably the Most Important Graphic Design Video I've Done. Checkout More Graphic Design Videos: http://goo.gl/1yqkNK Finding your first Graphic Design clients can be tough if you're just getting out of college or starting a new career in Graphic Design. The truth is that you don't need the internet or websites like Fiverr to find your first clients as a graphic designer. You can find your first design clients in your own networking of contacts. Start with your family and friends as design clients, and also be your own client. Do personal work and design work for people you care about. Then expand to small businesses in your area. If you're going to use online sites, find clients and budgets that you can live with. Don't settle for design clients that you don't want just to make a buck or build up experience. If you're going to work free or cheap as a beginning designer, you may as well do it for people you like or even love, starting with yourself.

GPU vs CPU Video Rendering and Video Editing
 
05:30
GPU vs CPU Video Editing and Video Rendering Choosing between a Faster Processor or Graphics Card is Hard. How to get faster video rendering times from your video editing. Both the CPU and GPU are important for video editing, rendering, gaming and 3D modeling but what will get you the best performance? HOW TO GET FASTER VIDEO RENDERING WITH A CPU The CPU ultimately is going to be the best place to spend the most money when it comes to getting faster render times. HOW TO GET FASTER VIDEO RENDERING WITH A GPU However the graphics card is still important for video editing and video rendering so don't underestimate the GPU and how valuable it is. There are many features such as color grading, 3D modeling and programs such as After Effects that can take advantage of the GPU when it comes to rendering and I've seen it cut rendering times in Premiere Pro down by half. OTHER WAYS TO GET FASTER VIDEO RENDERING TIMES There are other barriers to faster video editing and video rendering such as getting a faster drive such as SSDs and using multiple drives. In addition having more ram can also help depending on how intensive your application is. After Effects takes up more than many other programs.

Graphic Design: How Much Should You Charge Design Clients
 
12:04
How Much Should You Charge for Graphic Design Work: http://youtu.be/-Wrb1i46etM Checkout More Graphic Design Videos: http://goo.gl/1yqkNK How much should I charge for graphic design work? This is probably the most asked question I get on the channel, twitter and in emails. Many graphic designers undersell themselves all the time and have no ideas what to charge their clients for graphic design work. In this video I talk about how to VALUE yourself and your time as a graphic designer, and address the myths and bad advices you may have gotten from websites, teachers or other designers. The bottom line is you need to decide how much your work is worth and feel confident to ask for that amount. In my opinion any confident designer with a decent body of work should never price themselves lower that $20-30/hr or they are just cheating themselves. You need to think of this as business, not as a clock in employee, you need to be considering your cost on top of time, profit on top of paying yourself and investment in your business. Also you need to consider how the work you produce is being used and charge accordingly. A laptop that is going to last 3 years is between $600-1500, a logo is supposed to last the lifetime of a business, how could someone value it at $100?! Like My Content?

09:33
How to Build Your Personal Brand and Get More Followers in Social Media. If you want to get more followers on Twitter or Instagram or Snapchat, you need to have a one-to-one relationship strategy when you're starting from zero. JOIN CREATE AWESOME COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER http://goo.gl/EywY3S HOW TO GET MORE FOLLOWERS ON TWITTER Participate in Twitter chats and jump into conversations around hashtags for topics you care about. If you want to get more followers on Twitter, be worth talking to and don't be stingy about sharing other people's stuff if you want to matter to them. Livestreaming is also a popular way to get more followers on Twitter. Follow me on Twitter: http://twitter.com/robertoblake HOW TO GET MORE FOLLOWERS ON INSTAGRAM If you want to get more followers on Instagram you need to be posting multiple times a day and using Hashtags both in the post but also in the first comment. You can also use Geolocation to try to get more views. Interact with other people's post and drop real comments, take some real time and don't just post a quick comment. Show some love with some likes, and don't forget to use the power of Instagram stories. Follow me on Instagram: http://instagram.com/robertoblake HOW TO GET MORE FOLLOWERS ON FACEBOOK Curating content is a great way to get more followers on Facebook. If you don't have original content, share the best of the best content in topics you care about. Become a DJ for content in Facebook. If you want to do original content, short videos do very well in Facebook feeds and brand pages. You should also consider doing Facebook live. Video and Photos and Memes have the most organic reach in Facbook. I don't recommend buying boosted post when you're starting out. Follow me on Facebook: http://facebook.com/robertoblake2 HOW TO GET MORE FOLLOWERS ON SNAPCHAT Consider looking up people on Snapchat in your area and directly responding to their stories and tell them if you mention them in your own story. People will follow you if you are supporting them and what they do. You also need to consider using your other social networks to build up your Snapchat by using Twitter and possibly Facebook.

Top 5 Tips for New Web Designers | Web Design
 
03:44
Top 5 Tips for New Web Designers in 2016 Becoming a Web Designer isn't just learning Web Design principles or learning HTML Code. Getting hired as a web designer means understanding how users think and how to meet the needs of a real business. Web Designers often have a tendency to prioritize the technical parts of a web design without thinking about how their work impacts the business. Believe me when I tell you that when you are hired a web designer, the client or employer is more concerned with their cash flow than how you feel about the look or the coding... do not let romanticism kill your web design career. If website design work functions great but is unattractive and can't convince people to buy, it's function and coding doesn't matter, it failed to what was needed for your employer or client. You also shouldn't be rushing to design a website in the computer without a plan and an understanding of what the web design needs to accomplish to satisfy your employer.

YouTube Money Do YouTubers Have to Pay Taxes on YouTube Earnings
 
05:41
Do You Have to Pay Taxes on YouTube Adsense Earnings? While most people want to know how much money you make on YouTube, what they don't consider about YouTube earnings, is how much money you actually keep after you pay your YouTube Taxes... YouTubers are essentially freelancers or entrepreneurs, YouTube is not a job... you don't get healthcare benefits, there are no W2's and if you live in the United States you pay self employment taxes on your YouTube money earned from adsense monetization and YouTuber sponsorships.

If you treat YouTube like an after school job, it's going to be a problem if you ever want it to be more than that.

You're Overthinking It... #Rant
 
13:10
Most of my life I suffered from overthinking and anxiety... When I figured out how to stop overthinking things and take meaningful action without worrying about the results, my life changed and I gained a sense of control and purpose. It taught me to act intentionally and to be more patient with myself and cut myself a bit of slack. Perfect is the enemy of good/great. Quantity over Quality is real because Quality is a Bi-product of Quantity... aka your process. Here, watch this old crappy video from me... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O02iGAzqflw Over emphasizing quality is going to be you beating yourself up because you aren't as good as the greatest of all time and the people you admire, and yet you're not respecting how long it took for them to get there, or if they got there quickly you're not respecting that it was there journey and their DNA and that you have your own journey and your own DNA. You need to respect the process more and understand it takes 1000 executions most of which will be crap to get to a point of being able to produce 1/10 amazing executions and it will take 10,000 (most of which will be crap) before you produce 9/10 amazing executions. So yes, in the real world Quantity over Quality... get over it, stop overthinking it and start getting to work.

Recommended Web Hosting Blue Host http://goo.gl/or3zpx 1and1 http://goo.gl/el9jPo SquareSpace http://squarespace.difran.co/ You need to know that until you are getting over 100K visitors per month or unless you are taking credit card payments with something other than PayPal or Square, you probably don't need an expensive plan like a dedicated server. You also need to be aware that for every domain name you get you pay a yearly fee and that sometimes these fees will go up. Email is one of the most important things when getting a Web Hosting Plan.

How to Get Clients Fast. Everyone wants to get more client and grow their business, especially if you work as a freelancer or consultant. Here is the fastest way to get clients, grow your business, and build a sales funnel. It's going to come down to beating down doors physically and virtual. Stop the build it and they will come thing, its done, its stale and you're going to lose if you only do this. Identify people in your target market with the budget to pay. Present them with a body of work and solutions that would matter to them and deliver value. How do you do that? Find people who are already paying for what you can offer or are at least paying for advertising. Then determine if you can bring something to the table, then start by making yourself known to them. If you do this both online and locally you will get new clients and you will make more money. Combine that with a strong body of work and some marketing savvy and you should be just fine.

Why is Graphic Design Disrespected? [RANT]
 
09:13
Why is Graphic Design Disrespected? [RANT] Checkout More Graphic Design Videos: http://goo.gl/1yqkNK Graphic Design as profession seems to have been getting a certain lack of respect and is being devalued. While this isn't a new problem, and the general public still doesn't grasp what we actually do beyond using Photoshop to make pretty images... Sites like Fiverr, Design Contest and Crowd Sourcing have undermined and undervalued the profession and created bad habits and low expectations among both designers and clients. It is literally the Creative Services equivalent of a Fast Food Epidemic. Eating fast food has some vary obvious negative repercussions, the fall out from not approaching design and marketing the correct way is less obvious to some businesses and startups. Even some new designers don't understand this, since they entered this career with this being normal and accepted. But designers have been getting clients, and companies and individuals have been getting services long before these CrowdSource Design Sites and Cheap Sites like Fiverr ever came along. People had to not be lazy and build actual relationships, do their research and take risk and learn from their mistakes. The lack of willingness to do so is not only lazy, it's dangerous to Graphic Design, Marketing, Creative and to Business. If your face had an issue you needed corrected, would you go to a bargain plastic surgeon? Do you go to the free clinic if you can afford a better option? The marketing of your company, and your public image deserve the same care and respect. If you aren't planning to live on Fast Food, don't let your business live on manufactured, mass produced, "fast food style design and creative". Invest in quality, because it will pay off. Build a relationship that you will value and that will provide you with the best results possible. A bargain isn't worth the cost of getting it wrong when it comes to marketing in a noisy world. Now, honestly Designers are partly to blame. Not educating clients, not demonstrating or explaining the process, not qualifying their prices, not following AIGA guidelines and ethics are all part of the problem. By demonstrating my value as much as possible and educating my clients I avoid many of these problems. Like My Content?

Personal Branding:  What is a Personal Brand?

Personal Branding: What is Personal Branding in 2016? Building a Personal Brand Matters in 2016. Your Personal Brand is your reputation; branding is storytelling so people who you are and why they should care, and what value you can create. What is your personal brand message? Really think about this when you introduce yourself to people. Your personal brand is what people are saying about you and how they feel about you. You can influence this believe it or not. Your actions influence your personal brand moment to moment day to day. Dictate the narrative of your personal brand through storytelling and good communication and by actually doing good. iJustine is a great example of someone who took her personal branding seriously and became a household name. Her personal brand is easy to figure out. She's funny, adorkable, a geek, a gamer and an Apple fan girl. She is also a YouTuber and a successful business woman. That is the personal brand she built and the stories we tell about iJustine aka Justine Ezarik. It was not an accident, it was a personal brand strategy. Your personal brand can be something that you leverage to advance your career, your business or your personal/professional goals. Whether you're a filmmaker, photographer or a writer a personal brand matters. For those who work a 9 to 5 job, personal branding can mean the difference between a raise, a new position or working for a better company in the future.

Buying Your First DSLR Camera | Buyers Guide
 
10:35
How to Buy Your First DSLR Camera for Photography and Video Choosing your first DSLR Camera can be hard if you don't know what to look for and why you need certain features. If you are buying a DSLR camera for video then you need to also consider audio and make sure it has an audio input jack so you can have a decent microphone. You will also need to consider if it has in camera stabilization and a high ISO range for shooting in low light situations, since noise and grain can impact a video much more than a photo. If you are buying a DSLR for photography then buying a crop sensor vs full frame becomes an issue. If you are shooting high end work or sports, I would suggest a full frame camera. If you are shooting more casually then a crop sensor camera is fine and more affordable.
