[00:30] Happy Birthday to Melissa!

[01:43] Tuesday was with serial-ass entrepreneur Patrick Siles.
[02:50] The story how Patrick became an entrepreneur.
[03:25] Last Minutes Inc.
[03:40] Patrick started over 7 different companies.
[04:14] Patrick’s first success was in supplements, but now he’s doing vid-alytics.
[05:00] Video is really a big part of marketing
[05:25] vid-alytics came from a need in the market for good analytics.
[06:11] Melissa really likes ice cream.
[06:26] Analytics are skewed for videos right now, but vid-alytics gives you specific video feedback.
[07:12] Why are you doing a 5-minute video if the majority only watch 1 minute?
[07:30] Start with video, and you can reverse engineer that into other content.
[07:50] Video is too complicated, so most people don’t have the time to do it.
[08:10] Today’s Moment of Italian
[08:30] The Creative Hustler was forced into being comfortable in front of the camera.
[09:10] Follow The Creative Hustler on Facebook to find out when we go live.
[09:28] In the digital world, the video is accepted, but business owners are more hesitant to do video.
[10:48] If you have a lifestyle type of brand, get out there and go live!
[11:15] Incorporate your life into your live videos.
[12:00] Video is where it is at – how do you utilize analytics on videos?
[12:45] YouTube is saturated with a bunch of people trying to sell something.
[13:00] Melissa uses YouTube for the wings on her eyes.
[13:55] No matter what your #CreativeHustle is, you should be giving people a peek into your life.
[14:30] Patrick was a digital nomad.
[15:35] Working with your spouse is awesome and challenging.
[16:00] Working with your spouse challenging your patience and communication, and sometimes you need space.
[16:40] Normally, Steven has a pot of coffee before 7:30 am.
[17:17] Sometimes it takes you awhile to understand how your spouse works.
[17:55] Sometimes you need to talk it out, and other times you need to focus.
[18:22] Patrick’s wife was working on captions for a Spanish Soap Opera, and Patrick needed help with admin stuff.
[19:00] It’s challenging to work with your spouse because you spend so much time with them.
[19:40] Patrick, do you speak Spanish?
[20:00] Struggle for #CreativeHustlers, all our good friends live far away.
[20:44] We’re all just a URL link away from a video conference.
[21:55] We’re able to create without borders.
[22:15] vid-alytics work with embed codes on your website only.
[23:15] Always put the videos on your website, because from SEO perspective you might rank.
[24:00] YouTube can get clients taken away from your brand.
[24:20] Always make sure you have an embed code that people can share on their website, with a link back to your site.
[25:00] I wonder if vid-alytics would get stats on videos installed on multiple pages.
[26:00] Hypothetically it should read analytics from multiple different websites.
[26:26] The most important video is that your page speed is fast enough because 2 minutes of delay can mean millions of dollars lost.
[27:30] Our podcast is hosted on LibSyn which then imports to our website so you don’t have to host the content on your website. This is important.
[28:25] WP Engine is where we moved our website to have more space.
