Although vlogging is a popular medium to produce entertainment, you shouldn't underestimate the educational and informative videos always being produced too. In particular, business vlogs can help give you invaluable AND free advice from experts and professionals alike.
Here's a collection of some of our favourite business vlogs that are worth checking out!
1. Gary Vee
Gary is a veteran entrepreneur, the CEO of VaynerMedia, a full-service digital agency, Chairman of VaynerX and 5-time New York Times bestselling author. If those accolades don't convince you that there would be something you could learn about from his videos hitting all aspects of business, then I'm not sure if this list is for you.
2. Simon Sinek
One of our all-time favourites, Simon Sinek the author of best-selling books such as The Infinite Game or Start With Why. Simon aims to inspire and fulfil others. Despite his frequent uploads, he still manages to consistently find thought provoking questions that'll keep you on your toes or rethink your business.
3. Pat Flynn
With over 10 years of business experience and being a Wall Street Journal best-selling author with books such as Will It Fly, Flynn shares all the business insight he has gained. Flynn focused on setting up several businesses based around passive income such as digital products, affiliate marketing, software, books, coaching, public speaking, advertising and online courses.
4. Marie Forleo
Host to MarieTV and author to Everything is Figureoutable, a New York Times best seller, Forleo's channel can help you think more about the creativity, health and well-being behind entrepreneurship. Her videos aim to help you realise the purpose, the 'why', behind your actions and understand how to attain the life you desire.
5. Surfside PPC
One of our less obvious picks, Surfside PPC offers a breath of fresh air with their no nonsense, straight-forward tutorial videos on digital marketing. This channel's titles alone may reveal the cracks in the digital optimisation of your business from SEO, Google Ads, Pinterest Ads, Bing Ads, Microsoft Advertising and Facebook Ads. It's perfect for those of you not as tech savvy but would like an idea of what you could be doing/DIY.
At 19, Carmichael built then sold a biotech software company. At 22, he was a venture capitalist raising $500k to $15M. Unlike others on this list Carmichael focuses on the lessons and wisdom from the big names like Bill Gates, Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos. Having such variety of successful perspectives in one concise place is a great privilege.
Philip VanDusen has over 25 years of experience in brand strategy, graphic design and creative leadership for some of the world's most successful global retailers and strategic branding agencies. His channel is a wealth of information about branding and marketing that you don't want to miss out on.
8. Shan Hanif
For a more behind scenes of a running a business, Hanif runs a much smaller channel compared to the people on this list but if anything, it just adds to the authenticity. And don't think that just because his channel is small means that he doesn't know what he's talking about, just read his about section:
Founder & CEO of Genflow, Launched 50+ brands, $100M Value
9. Brian Tracy
Brian Tracy is the one of the most listened to audio author on personal and business success in the world today. As author to Eat that Frog, one of our favourites in the business inspirante book club, Tracy specialises in leadership, sales, managerial effectiveness and business strategy and his channel is no different.
Hosted by Erica Olsen but ran by OnStrategy, Virutal Strategist has many videos getting into the real nitty gritty details on concepts related to a good business strategy. The level of depth and technicality that the videos give, with a traditional white board lecture is why it earns it's spot on this list.
