Welcome to the
Part-Time YouTuber Accelerator.

Your YouTube Growth, Supercharged.

With 5.6 million subscribers and $6 million in annual revenue, I'm combining the knowledge I’ve passed on to thousands of creators with direct support and feedback from my team to level up an entire year of your YouTube growth.

Sometimes a course on its own isn’t enough.

You can have the best educational materials in the world at your fingertips, but when you’re dealing with something as arduous as building a successful YouTube channel - which takes years of consistent hard work and improvement - the more support you have, the better

Why?

Ultimately, a course on its own still needs you to do the work yourself

Look at it this way.

  • I can teach you everything I know about how to create incredible videos that hook your viewers and keep them watching
  • I can teach you how to create exciting and engaging titles and thumbnails that catch people’s attention and make them want to click on your videos.
  • I can even teach you to build a brand people will fall in love with ; one that turns your audience into a loyal following who look forward to your videos each week and who desperately want more of your content.

But if I just teach you those things and then you’ve got to figure out how to actually apply what you’ve learned to the content you’re creating, how do you know that you’re getting it right?

Being a YouTuber is an incredibly time-consuming process, where the best of the best know that every second they pump into their YouTube channel guarantees them some kind of a return

You can know all of the right steps to take, but if you’re not executing on them correctly then there’s every chance you’re just pouring more of your time down the drain - and even worse, that you’re doing so while you think you’re nailing it every step of the way.

Yes, there’s an abundance of insight, information and guidance out there on YouTube which you can use to guide you, but you still have to be able to spare enough time to parse through it all, to know the right questions to ask and to know how to apply changes to the content you’re creating - without doubling the amount of time you’re putting into YouTube already

What do you do if you have a team of people working with you on your channel, but you don’t know everyone can level up their abilities so you’re producing really high-level content which will maximise your chances of growing on YouTube?

It all boils down to this:

Without support, you’re on your own trying to get everything right and trying to figure out what’s happened when things don’t go as planned.

Everyone knows that growing on YouTube takes time. My team and I want to help you get the highest return on yours.

A YouTube Channel can completely change your life - it changed mine.

If we haven’t met before - Hi, my name’s Ali 👋

I started making YouTube videos in 2017, while in my final year of medical school at Cambridge University.

I started off with 0 views, 0 subscribers and $0 in revenue. I knew absolutely nothing about filming, editing or publishing videos, but after watching hundreds of tutorials, I figured out the basics.

18 months later, my YouTube channel reached 100,000 subscribers and was making as much money as my full-time job working as a doctor.

Two years later, I hit 1 million subscribers, $1m in annual revenue, and finally made the decision to quit my day job.

Now, I’ve been a Part-Time YouTuber for nearly 6 years. My channel’s grown from zero to 5.6 million subscribers, and I have a team of 17 full-time employees and a huge network of amazing freelancers who work with me to help people build a life they love through inspiring, educational content.  

I have a podcast with almost 300k monthly downloads and a combined following of over 1 million people on other social media platforms.

I genuinely look forward to Mondays, working with a team of amazing creatives, and doing what I love, with a lot of freedom, fun and flexibility. I get messages every day from people saying my videos have changed their lives. I’ve even written my first book, due to be published by Penguin later this year.

Last year my business made $6 million in revenue.

And I make more money in a single year than I would’ve made in two decades working as a doctor.

The Simple “Secret” Formula to 100,000+ Subscribers

Over the last 7 years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to build an audience from scratch, provide value consistently, and monetise in a non-spammy way.

I’ve spent thousands of hours, and over $100,000 in courses and coaching programs to try and find the secret sauce that helps grow a channel and a business. And while I’ve learned a hell of a lot of things (more on that later), the biggest thing I’ve learned is this -

There’s no secret to building a life-changing YouTube Channel.

It’s just a matter of:

  1. Creating videos that people find valuable
  2. Posting them on YouTube at least once a week
  3. Repeating this for at least 2 years

That’s all it takes.

I personally guarantee that if you follow this 3-part formula, your life will change in ways you can’t imagine.

You’ll learn incredibly useful skills, you’ll make friends with amazing people from all over the world and you’ll start to generate ‘passive’ income. You might even get messages from people about how your videos have changed their lives 😳

It seems simple in theory, but the execution is slightly more difficult.

There are almost 400,000 creators on YouTube with over 100k subscribers, and almost 3 million with over 10k.

Standing out on the platform has never been trickier.

You might have a unique perspective or an unfair advantage over the competition but the sheer standard of the content being created on YouTube these days has never been higher

So if we want to creating videos that people find valuable, we need to ask a couple of questions:

  • How can we be sure we’re creating value for an audience that they can’t find somewhere else?
  • How can we persuade people to click on our videos in the first place?
  • How do we convince someone to subscribe to see more of our content?
  • How can we continuously improve the content we’re creating so that we become one of those people who stands out with a strong brand and a bought-in audience?

What if you could learn directly from professionals like this?

What if you could put your thumbnails in front of them, and have them tell you what they’d improve? How they’d think about your thumbnails to make them world class

And what if it wasn’t just your thumbnails… Imagine if you could work with full-time professionals who are among the best in the world at:

YouTube strategy

Scriptwriting

Social media growth

Editing

Productisation

Video production

Sponsorships

Email list growth

Podcasts

Monetisation

Marketing

Newsletters

and even business management for a creative team...

Welcome to the Part-Time YouTuber Accelerator 🚀

With the Part-Time YouTuber Accelerator, we want to make sure that you never feel like you have to do it yourself, all on your own, ever again.

Here are the headlines:

When you join the Accelerator, you’ll basically have 6 months of open-source access to the team I’ve built around my business, all of whom work with other creators across YouTube and other platforms in their respective areas of expertise and who are absolutely world-class at what they do.

You’ll get access to over 20+ hours of course material which is the distillation of everything my team and I know about YouTube through growing a channel to 5.6 million subscribers and millions in revenue, and which we’ve taught to more than 6,000 YouTubers and creators over the last three years.

For an entire year, you’ll be able to submit your videos to us for feedback from our team of experts, who have reviewed thousands of videos over the last three years and who can help you lock in on the most important improvements you can make so that you never need to sit and scratch your head about what you could do better.

You’ll have access to a private Slack group with other creators who are investing in their growth on YouTube for the next 6 months, as well as everyone on my team, where we discuss everything from feedback on thumbnails or titles all the way to sponsorship proposals, product funnels, or editing tips and tricks - every day.

You’ll have Q&A calls with me every month where I can give you my expertise (and honest opinions) on any question you have, any challenge you’re facing or anything you’re struggling with.

And much more - but we’ll get to the details soon.

What’s the aim of all of this?

To put world-class educational materials, and world-class expertise and guidance at your fingertips.
To create a close-knit network of driven creators and give you everything we possibly can to create the best possible chance of growing on YouTube.
To create a support network that means you don’t have to do it all on your own.

I’ve been teaching creators how to grow their channels and level up on YouTube and in business for the last three years through my Part-Time YouTuber Academy.

But during that time, I’ve been hiring experts with the explicit purpose of being better than me at the job they’re doing, so that my channel and following across different platforms (and my bottom line) can still grow, without needing my input.

After all, what’s the point of being a Part-Time YouTuber if you can’t enjoy the journey?

In the Accelerator, my team and I get to be a part of your YouTube journey for the next 6 months, and we’ll have the chance to help you tackle and overcome each new challenge as it rears its head. We’ll be right by your side for an entire year.

After each cohort of our Part-Time YouTuber Academy, we’d get countless messages from people telling us that they wished there was some way to ask us more questions, keep getting feedback on their videos and have access to all of the support the team can offer.

Now you can.

We want to help you:

Avoid making key mistakes - we’ve made them so you don’t have to, and we can help you dodge them as you grow

Choose the highest leverage activities to pump your time and energy into, so you know that no second spent working on your YouTube channel is a second wasted

Build a robust ecosystem of YouTube content (the foundation of your content empire) through conversations, brainstorming and workshops with world-class experts who know your content, know the challenge’s you’re facing and have been working with you every step of the way

Grow. Not just in views and subscribers, but in revenue and cross-platform influence

And we’re growing with you. My team and I have helped hundreds of channels with zero subscribers to hit the ground running, and hundreds of channels with thousands of subscribers scale faster than they ever expected

We’re also at the helm of a 5.6 million subscriber YouTube channel and we’re experimenting and levelling up every day - so you can leverage our experience, the experiments we’re running and what we’re learning so that your knowledge and execution are unparalleled


You’ve effectively got a network of consultants, freelancers and coaches at your fingertips. We’ll get to know you and your content, we’ll learn what you’re working on and what you’re trying to build, and you’ll grow with us over the next 6 months.

The Part-Time YouTuber Accelerator has only been running for a year - it’s a new product we created after we stopped doing live cohorts. But in just a few short months, we’ve already had tonnes of amazing feedback from our Accelerator students. Here’s what some of them had to say:

Izzy had never made a video before she took our live course. She implemented everything she learned, and her channel has grown to 500k+ subscribers since.

"I think the content is super helpful, especially for a beginner to really get an idea of the YouTube landscape and how everything works. Secondly, the amazing community of creators was something I never expected and has actually been the most valuable takeaway for me."

Izzy Sealey (363,000 Subscribers)

Ellie-Jean was (almost) a complete beginner when she joined PTYA. Almost as soon as she started posting, her channel started to take off. She took the cohort a second time a few months later to consolidate her learnings, and to get more feedback.

I found loads of really great resources through the Academy. It’s really helped me to think about capturing everything I see and putting it somewhere I can return to it. I’d recommend others to join because it’s such an amazing community.”

Ellie-Jean Royden (280,000 Subscribers)

Clara had made a handful of videos before taking PTYA early in her YouTube career. She has grown her channel (in Spanish) to 200k+ subscribers.

"I really liked the live sessions with Ali, and the community in Circle. Everyone was so positive, encouraging and helpful, and learning about Ali’s journey and experience firsthand was really motivating. I started my channel only a few months before PTYA launched [...] so learning about everything in an easy to digest way was super helpful. After taking the course, I knew exactly who my target audience was and what I needed to do to make good videos.”

Clara Carmona (218,000 Subscribers)

John had made ~35 videos, and was on 1,000 subscribers when he took PTYA. Since then, his channel’s grown to 390k+ subscribers and changed his life.

Having a smaller community to compete with really motivated me to bring my A-Game… I would recommend PTYA to anyone who’s thinking about starting a YouTube channel and who knows they’re going to be able to take it seriously. I do think PTYA is the best course I’ve seen on the topic”.

John Coogan (391,000 Subscribers)

Daniel had made a few dozen videos, and had 3600 subscribers when he took PTYA. His channel immediately exploded, and he’s now approaching 900,000 subscribers.

Dami had made ~15 videos, and had 500 subscribers when she took PTYA. Since then, her channel’s followed the classic exponential growth curve, and she’s now approaching 1,200,000 subscribers..

"I was a part of Cohort #1 of PTYA. Although it took a lot of luck and strategizing to grow my YT channel, the course was an incredible value - from mindset, tried and tested tips, to customized feedback from an amazingly supportive community. It will give you a great foundation to kickstart your Youtube journey."

Dami Lee (1,110,000 subscribers)

Tiago Forte had been making videos on-and-off for a decade. He decided to take YouTube seriously when he took PTYA. His channel immediately exploded, drove millions of dollars of revenue for his business, and helped his first book hit the bestseller charts.

"We invested over $300,000 in our YouTube channel when we decided to take it seriously. The $5k for the Accelerator version of PTYA was one of the highest ROI expenses we've ever had in our business. I'd recommend it to anyone looking to shortcut the long learning curve of YouTube"

Tiago Forte (234,000 Subscribers)

Ankur had been making videos for 3 years, and had 36k subscribers. Take a look at what happened as soon as he took PTYA.

“I would absolutely recommend PTYA to anybody who wishes to start on their YouTube or content creation journey. It’s brilliant to be amongst like-minded people, it’s so awesome to be connected with people across the world […] and to then identify your own path. It’s wonderful that this programme continues to thrive.”

warikoo (3,540,000 subscribers)

Ethan was already a full-time YouTuber with 400k subscribers. But taking PTYA helped him level up his channel across all fronts.

“There’s no secret trick to making it on YouTube, but what Ali and the team are going to show you is how to stack the deck in your favour. Ali will leap you way ahead of the curve and put structure and systems in place so you can consistently churn out better and better content”.

Ethan Chlebowski (1,860,000 Subscribers)

Chris already had a YouTube channel for his podcast, “Modern Wisdom” with 100k subscribers. But after taking PTYA, he decided to rebrand and relaunch his YouTube channel, taking the insights he learned from the course. Since then, his growth has absolutely skyrocketed.

"Part-Time YouTuber Academy really helped to take me from a total noob in regards to how YouTube works to pretty well-informed. It was a one-stop shop for me. It made a massive difference - the content that he and his team created is very useful and still now, 3 years after taking the course I am continuing to rely on some of the resources that I took from it then. I highly recommend it."

Chris Williamson (1,750,000 subscribers)

Dr Julie Smith already had a significant presence on TikTok but wanted to break into YouTube as well. She took PTYA, immediately applied her learnings, and her channel exploded.

Okay, so the Accelerator has clearly worked for other creators. But will it work for me specifically?

Well, that depends. This certainly isn’t a magic bullet. And it’s not a get-rich-quick scheme. Success on YouTube is probabilistic.

We can help you save time and can teach you what you need to know to stack the deck in your favour.

But we can’t actually do the work for you. We’ll be there with you, helping you out wherever we can, but you have to put in the effort yourself.

So that begs the question:

Who is the Part-Time YouTuber Accelerator not for?

The Part-Time YouTuber Accelerator probably isn't a good fit for you if - You're not willing to put in the time and effort to commit to making videos for the long term.

    1. You're looking for a magic bullet that'll get your channel to grow without any effort. There's no secret here. It's just about putting in the work, doing it consistently, and stacking the deck in your favour in whatever way you can.
    2. You're hoping that starting a YouTube channel will be a get-rich-quick scheme. Again, that's not how it works. There are no shortcuts .
    3. You're looking for a guaranteed pat h to 10k, 100k, or 1M subscribers. There are no guarantees in this game. It's like signing up for a writing course and expecting to have 1M readers per month for your blog, or 100,000 sales of your book. That's not how it works . We'll teach you the systems and processes that have worked for us and our students, and we’ll be there to guide you for the next 6 months of your journey through any challenges you face, but we obviously can't 'guarantee' any specific result.
    4. You’re looking for a bespoke, done-for-you service where we create your strategy for you or supply you with scripts or thumbnail/title ideas or other finished products. In the Accelerator, we’re trying to tee you up with as much expertise, input, guidance and assistance as possible , but we can’t give you the answers. There are people out there who you can work with who’ll create these finished products for you (and we can help you find them), but that’s not what this Accelerator is intended to be.

Again, the one thing we can guarantee is that if you create useful videos, publish consistently, and do this for 2 years, your life will change. And we'll be by your side until you're halfway there.

Okay, you get the idea.

Let’s break down what the Part-Time YouTuber Accelerator actually looks like in practice, and what you get if you sign up:

#1 Access to our Part-Time YouTuber Academy (currently $995)

A curriculum of over 20 hours of educational material designed to teach you everything I know about growing a YouTube channel.

This includes:

The Core PTYA Curriculum

10 hours of material teaching you everything we know about YouTube from getting started all the way through to monetising, building a team and turning your channel from a hobby into a thriving business.

PTYA Bonus Modules

More than 16 hours of extra video training on camera gear, studio setups, monetisation, repurposing, community building, newsletter creation and more.

Lifetime access to all the course material

So that as your channel grows, there’ll always be useful information and insights you can benefit from every step of the way

Throughout my journey over the last 6 years, I’ve had constant questions from other creators asking about how I grew my own channel as a Part-Time YouTuber. So in 2020, I started the Part-Time YouTuber Academy as a way to help creators invest their time into what really matters when it comes to being a Part-Time YouTuber - building a system

The systems we’ve developed and which we teach in the course grew my own channel from zero to 1.2 million subscribers (with $1,000,000 in annual revenue) while working full-time as a doctor.

And the systems I’ve continued to develop and use since then have grown my channel to 5.6 million subscribers (with $6,000,000 in annual revenue). All while “working” under 10 hours per week on the channel.

Here’s a flavour of what you’ll get during the 6 months of the Accelerator:

You’ll go through our Niche Discovery Framework, to help you figure out your niche and what to make videos about, so you’re not wasting time creating content that’s unlikely to work for you in the long term

You’ll get my Outsourcing Almanack - a system for outsourcing editing, including job descriptions and a step-by-step guide to finding the perfect video editor who edits in your own style. This’ll help you save 10+ hours every single week.

You’ll learn my Perfect Packaging Process, a step-by-step framework (including best practices, templates and tools) for creating compelling titles and thumbnails quickly and efficiently, so you’re not spending hours trying to craft the ‘perfect’ title and thumbnail combination every time.

And so you’re not wasting hours creating videos that no one’s going to click on because the title and thumbnail suck ;)

You’ll learn my HIVES Framework for structuring and scripting your videos so that you’re not wasting your time trying to reinvent the wheel every time you make a video.

You’ll build your own streamlined Infinite Content Engine, with the next 3-6 months of content planned out, so you can sustain your output after the course ends.

You’ll build your own Idea Generation Machine that’ll help you generate ideas, and tell you which video ideas have a higher chance of going viral and growing your channel, so you’re not wasting time making videos that are unlikely to perform well.

You’ll also get access to all of our checklists and templates, as well as things like our PTYA Workbook - this is a 56-page digital supplement to the course which breaks down each of the lessons into exercises you can use to really consolidate the learnings into actions that will supercharge your growth.

Want more info and a full breakdown of the curriculum we’ll share with you? You can check out our full page about the Part-Time YouTuber Academy here - and remember, you’ll get all of this for free when you join the Accelerator.

#2 Weekly Office Hours with Experts from our Team

In these Office Hours, you'll have an open-source pass to the team behind my $6 million a year business—professionals who specialise in areas such as scriptwriting, YouTube strategy, editing, social media growth, video production, sponsorships, monetisation, marketing, and more.

Think of this as having a dream team right at your fingertips, providing personalised guidance tailored to your specific needs. Whether you're struggling with the perfect thumbnail, a script for your latest video, or navigating the launch of a new product, the team are there to ensure your strategies are sound and your content reaches its maximum potential.

These office hours aren’t just one-off events; they are weekly, interactive 60-minute sessions which you’ll have access to for the entire 6 months. You’re free to drop in and out, ask burning questions, seek advice, and continuously improve your craft under the team’s supervision

Think of it like continual education from industry leaders who are at the cutting edge of their fields, who know your goals and what you’re working on and who have a single-minded focus on elevating your work and increasing your potential.

Think of them as “specialist subject” hours - where you can go if you need to ask a detailed question on a workflow in Final Cut Pro or After Effects, or want to learn about how to get a podcast off the ground, or even if you’re thinking of starting a course of your own.

Most of the team also work as freelance consultants or coaches, charging hundreds of dollars per hour for their time, and you’ll be able to leverage their expertise every week, building on your previous conversations to continually troubleshoot your issues and level up what you’re working on.

Here’s what the week of calls looks like:

And here’s what our Accelerator students have to say about them, and some of the cool things that have already happened as a result of these calls:

#3 The Hotline: 6 months of access to exclusive Accelerator-only Slack channels for rapid access to our support team

This isn't your everyday chat room; it's a space full of real-time brainstorming, information sharing and feedback manned by the team and I.

Imagine having the power to refine your thumbnails, titles, and content before you ever hit publish

No more playing the waiting game to see if something works or relying on A/B testing alone for your titles and thumbnails; in our Slack channels we can give you input tailored to your needs, helping you make those crucial tweaks before your content goes live.

We’ve got channels for you to ask questions, and channels for you to brainstorm things like titles and thumbnails and to get feedback on ideas and videos from the team and other students.

The team and I will use this Slack group to share what we’re working on, experiments we’re running on the channel and other cool things. We’ll voice note you our thoughts on a strategy you’re working on, record Looms walking you through something visual or to show you how we think about a certain topic on the team, share thumbnail breakdowns with you when we’re trying something new and we’ll shout out wins and success stories from within the Accelerator group as we go.

There’s also the opportunity to leverage the collective experience of your fellow Accelerator members. This group brings together a collection of content creators, marketers, and business brains, each bringing their unique perspective and experience to the table. You’ll benefit not just from our insight and expertise but also from the other people around you who have made the same commitment to levelling up their YouTube prowess.

#4 You get expert, 1:1 personalised feedback on your videos for the next 6 months

Polished systems, strong ideas and great production value all have their place, but the harsh reality is you’re never going to grow on YouTube if you can’t make good videos, plain and simple.

Yes, iterating over time means you’ll improve, but it’s highly unlikely your comment section is ever going to tell you what you could do to improve your title and thumbnail, or your hook, or your edits. We will.

During the Accelerator, you'll submit a video every two weeks to our team of experts who have reviewed thousands of videos and they’ll give you feedback specifically tailored to what you’re trying to improve.

They’ll look at your titles, thumbnails, hook, storytelling, production value, editing and much more so that you’re exponentially increasing the speed at which you can improve and you’ve got specific and actionable feedback week by week. Our 6,000+ previous students consistently rated this as one of the most useful aspects of our live course, and now it lasts a whole year.

#5 Monthly Live Q&As with Ali Abdaal

Each month I'll be hosting a dedicated Q&A session where you can ask me any and all questions related to your YouTube channel, content, strategy or anything else.

We'll have a chance to go back and forth on questions and ideas you have, and I'll explain the answer to your question as best as I can, and try and "think out loud" to explain the reasoning behind it too.

Even if you don’t have questions, you can come to this Q&A to learn from the experience of other people and to see how I think about our content production engine as a whole, and to learn more about how I’ve grown it from its infancy to the 5 million subscriber channel it is now, and the team I’ve built around it.

#6 Access to our Creator Booster Pack (worth $949)

The Part-Time YouTuber Accelerator isn't the only course we've created to help people become successful, confident and driven content creators with thriving businesses.

So we decided to give you our other courses too.

Creatorpreneur Academy ($799)

Creatorpreneur Academy is a self-paced online course, with 6+ hours of content across 40+ lessons, where you'll learn everything there is to know about transforming your creative side-hustle into a sustainable operation that's highly profitable, hugely scalable, and ridiculously fun.

In particular, we'll be taking a deep dive into the principles, strategies, and tools businesses use to achieve consistent and sustainable growth, giving you a bunch of actionable + timeless insights you can use immediately to supercharge your creative projects.

Camera Confidence Masterclass ($149)

In this course - with over 4.5 hours of content across 40+ lessons, I’ll be teaching you everything that I’ve learnt about camera confidence over the past few years of making hundreds of videos and coaching over 3,000 students as part of my Part-Time YouTuber Academy.

We’re going to cover a bunch of principles, strategies and tools for being more comfortable on camera, and you’ll see real life evidence of these techniques in action as I take various members of my team through the exercises, and give them feedback throughout.

Sounds great!
So how much does this cost?

For context, you could pay $10,000 for an hour of my time over a Zoom call for a private coaching session. Or, like plenty of conference organisers do, you could pay $20,000 to fly me out to give a 30-60 minute talk where I cover 1% of what you’ll learn in the course.

Back when we were running live cohorts of our Part-Time YouTuber Academy, we’d offer something similar to the Accelerator for the 6 weeks of the course (private slack channels, Q&A calls with me and other perks) for $5995. For 6 weeks - not 6 months. Keep that figure in mind 😉

Another way to put our prices into context is to think of it as an investment in your YouTube “business”. If you’re treating YouTube as a hobby, this course probably isn’t for you. But if you’re treating it like a business, then investing some money in saving time and increasing your odds of success seems like a no-brainer. Especially given (a) how much your life can change, and (b) how much money you stand to make if your YouTube channel goes well 🤷

Anyway, enough spiel - here's the price.

The Part-Time YouTuber Accelerator

$5995

For the PTYA course materials + 6 months access

The Part-Time YouTube Accelerator is a 6-month blend of all of the highest leverage parts of PTYA, including Slack support from Ali's team, fortnightly video feedback for an entire year, monthly Q&As, monthly specialist workshops and much more.

The best part?

You can get all this for just $6,995 for 6 months.

Our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee & Money-Back Promise

We want the investment in this course to be an absolute no-brainer for you - if you’re actually going to do the work 😉


“Do the work” technically involves (a) completing the core module exercises, and (b) submitting at least 2 videos for feedback. If you’ve done those things, and for whatever reason aren’t 100% happy with your experience, drop us an email (within 30 days from the start of the program) and we’ll happily refund your entire payment

However, please note that the money-back guarantee only applies if you actually do the work and you’re submitting videos for feedback.

"This is the only course on YouTube where you can meet like-minded folks who will keep you accountable to posting videos & improving your skills. It's a like a mini-semester in Uni/College - I made new friends I still talk to everyday, I learned how to create great videos from start to finish, and I optimised my systems to increase my CTR and Watch Time."

"PTYA saved me a lot of time when it came to finding better equipment that drastically improved the quality of my videos. You know this was all great information because it was coming directly from someone who makes multiple high-end Youtube videos a week and, as a result, has more than 3 million subscribers."

"Massive amounts of knowledge and learning, questions answered, friends made, ongoing access to content, new events scheduled for alumni, and the rather strange occupation of YouTuber 'normalised'. If you're serious about YouTube, the PTYA is a catalyst to success."
