You can listen to the episode here by clicking on the pink bar below or listen on iTunes or Stitcher (Android). While you are there, make sure to subscribe!

Who is Yarissa Rodriguez? She is a brand new up and comer from the Dominican Republic with a Spanish channel that has skyrocked this last year. We were introduced in a Facebook group for YouTubers. She had been casually mentioning a few milestones in the group when I asked her, woah, wait, did you just say you have 50k subs and you just started 6 months ago? Then 2 months later, BAM, she hit that elusive 100k goal every YouTuber dreams about. Ok, miss unicorn, I gotta know your story and you are coming onto the podcast! I think everyone wants to know how to get 100k YouTube subscribers in 8 months, including me!

I LOVED Yarissa. She was so energetic and full of life. It was refreshing to hear her perspective from a country that isn’t used to the Kandee’s, Marlena’s, Desi’s and other huge personalities on YouTube. In essence, she is starting from scratch and paving her own way in the crazy YouTube world. Yarissa fully understands the opportunity that is in front of her and is seizing it. I predict she is going to go very far and change her life dramatically through her YouTube career.

She has a bit of an advantage. Her landscape is not as saturated as the English speaking market. However, there is a lot to learn from her and her story. She clearly understands everything required in having a successful channel from embracing your unique personality to the technical components of starting off with the right equipment and being thorough in the Three T’s: Tags, Titles and Thumbnails. I also really loved her approach to collaborating. She felt alone in her pursuit of YouTube success and formed her own mastermind with others in her situation. Not only did that provide a means for collaboration and audience sharing, but it gave her what she really wanted, friends she could relate to. Below are some topics covered along with my favorite quotes and some of her favorite tools.

In this episode you will learn:

  • How to best use tags. Hands down, some of the best advice I have heard anywhere regarding this topic.
  • How to collaborate with other YouTubers.
  • Her successful system for choosing video topics that get lots of views.
  • How to keep people on your channel and watching your videos until the end.
  • Why viral videos are so important.
  • How to get 100k YouTube Subscribers!

Some of my favorite quotes from this interview with Yarissa:

I knew in a part of my heart that I could do it because I believe in myself.


Please do not be like somebody else. You have something that nobody has.. If you don’t take advantage of that, you will not go far.

    This podcast was so inspiring <3, loved every minute of it. As a Dominican myself (that lives in NY) it gave me sense of I can do it. I have been very doubtful on whether or not to pursuit this love or dream of making youtube videos especially because I am in my late 30's and most big Youtubers are in their early 20's. I loved loved this podcast. Thanks a million!
