How a viral YouTube video led to a book deal for this Montana real estate broker

Listen Now on Apple Podcasts

It can be tough to envision what positive things can come your way when you're first starting out creating content. Most content creators *think* that doing videos, writing articles, or starting a podcast can open doors for them in the future, but they're really going off blind faith.

This week, that blind faith is getting some backup. Will Friedner, a real estate broker in Whitefish, MT started out blogging years ago. That blog led him to eventually start a Youtube channel about a year ago, but it didn't get traction right away.

But about 6 months ago… it BLEW UP! One of his videos got nearly 2 million views, and many of his “Montana living” videos have received 50,000+ views.

Will says that because of his YouTube videos, he's getting 3 organic inbound calls every day.

That's 15 HOT organic leads, every single week. But… the story doesn't end there. Will was actually approached by a book publisher who wanted to do a book about living in Montana… and he wanted to use Will as the author of the book!

Hear the amazing story of what can happen when you are bold enough to simply record yourself on video and post it on the interwebs ūüôā
