You know when it's hard to figure out what that “thingy” is called? You know…the animated thingy at the bottom of the video during the intro? Or the thingy that shows up in the middle of a video, showing all sorts of value in it? I hear the word “thingy” all the time in my family, let me know if yours does too! I could not figure out how to search for something that was clearly in front of me, so I did my best to describe what it does in our Facebook group.
One of the admins responded and said, “Ricky, those are called lower thirds”. I immediately jumped on to YouTube and sure enough, that's exactly what they were called. This is one of the many benefits of being connected with a network marketing community. We are constantly surrounding ourselves with smarter people, and as a result, we can get more work done!
What Are Lower Thirds?
Lower thirds is an animated text that displays information about who you are and what services you will provide. Lower thirds are like friends who grab the attention of other people and point them to you. Once you have a friend or two giving you a little credit, this attracts other people to you, rather than chasing them down. It's kind of like social proof but on a digital scale.
Why Use Lower Thirds?
Your audience must perceive “authority” which lets them know that you mean business and you are about to teach them something of great value. You also have about 5 seconds to grab the attention of your audience so let me repeat myself, the sense of “authority” must be perceived right away. Lower thirds will increase the likelihood of someone sticking around and watching your video.
Where Can I Find Free Lower Thirds Templates?
Below is a video demonstration of me creating a lower third for a new video using software called Typito which is free to use. Just give them a name and email and your good to go! Once you create you own lower third and would like to export the video, Typito will give you the option to either send it straight to YouTube, or to download it.
Don't let a little fear and intimidation hold you back. In fact, kick that crap to the curb! How long have you let fear dominate your life financially? Isn't it time you spent time and energy into something you really love and are passionate about?
Heck, why not produce an income while your at it! So go ahead and click on the link above to get started, and I'll be personally connecting with you so you are free from any technical hurdles. Don't worry! Everything is going to be just fine…
Creating ads on YouTube couldn't be easier my friend! Simply sign up for a generic YouTube account, upload a video to your channel, and you can use that same video to advertise it on YouTube!
What makes YouTube Advertising so much fun is just how powerful it is! I love using the geo-location option because you can target a specific audience within a particular regional area. This is exactly what every small business owner NEEDS to take advantage of!
Long gone are the days when mailing out your ads produced these kind of results! And the delivery of these YouTube Ads are super cheap and fast! You can literally create an ad in as little as 15 minutes and have the video play right before your competitors video starts to play. Ha! I think that is just hilarious…
YouTube Advertising also gives you the power to target by age group, gender, and interests. This is what network marketers call “Target Marketing”. You can literally bake a cake and serve it to people who are searching for your cake. Well sort of, a cake probably wouldn't do to well via UPS. “Got any cakes in those boxes that smell good sir?” “Oh no, no, no, I just don't even remember what I put inside these boxes to ship all over town.”
Crazy “ups” guys…
If you have a business and would love to build a strong subscriber base for your YouTube channel, you can literally send people who watch your YouTube ads straight over to your YouTube channel and encourage them to subscribe by simply telling them to in the video. Give clear instructions and people will love you for it!
YouTube advertising is the fastest and easiest way for people like YOU to leverage your small business whether online or offline.

To this day one of my all time favorite quotes still comes from The Lord of The Rings. Frodo Baggins is feeling the full weight of carrying the evilest ring of power. Frodo vents his exhaustion out to Gandalf and says, “I wish the ring had never come to me! I wish none of this had ever happened!” Then Gandalf said something so impressive that to this day it gives my chills and just takes my breath away. He said,
“So do all who live to see such times, but that is NOT for them to decide. All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you.”
I love this quote with all my heart and soul. It can be passed down to a thousand generations and will still make an impact on people's lives! Let this quote just sink in and rest in your thoughts! It's in the smallest moments of time that we are given the power to make a decision. This is overlooked, disrespected, and is always the furthest thing from important to a vast majority.
Since I fell in love with this quote, I have meditated on it day and night. All I have to do is decide what to do with the precious time that is given to me! I don't want a moment wasted. And I mean glossing over a powerful moment of victory for someone else. I can't allow myself the luxury of laziness when it's time to make the decision.
My father said something to all of us just before he died and I'll never forget it. He said that he had no regrets, he “Just wished he had a job that he really enjoyed.” I just took what he said and ran with it. I went full steam ahead to discover what I love most about life and create a future that changes lives.

When it comes to staying safe on the web, all you have to do is educate yourself.
It's best to learn from people who know how the internet is structured and are simply not affected by the people who intentionally do the wrong thing all the time.
With that, stay away from websites that you ARE NOT familiar with.
NEVER under any circumstances click on ANYTHING that pops up in your web browser that says you are infected with a virus, and to click the message to get rid of it. It is a big fat lie and THAT is a virus for sure!
If an email looks suspicious and it has something attached to it, DON'T OPEN IT. There are viruses that are ready to reek havoc on your personal computer and will swallow up your time with frustration and mass confusion. It only takes one email to ruin your day!
Trust what you know.
There are people who are unaffected by the email scams and pop problems because they know what they are. Listen to the conversations that THOSE PEOPLE are having.
If they have a YouTube Channel, and put out really good content that pleases you, then by all means, subscribe to that person's YouTube Channel and pay close to what they have to say.
Facebook is a great place to meet up with old high school buddies and friends you haven't seen in years, but keep a close watch on people who impersonate your friends.
I know I know, it would be GREAT if we could just trust everybody right? But we can't, and that's a good thing. There are many people who are ready to deceive you in a heartbeat. So it's good to know how to defend yourself online at all times.
We cannot always trust technology to protect us.
Sometimes our best defenses are the one we take advantage of and ignore, like our instincts. If your gut tells you no, just go with it. Don't give it a second thought.
Most if not all well-respected businessmen and businesswomen trust their gut instinct. Because it's perfectly fine and natural to do so! Look at how animals respond when they feel there is danger nearby, they run away! You should do the exact same thing!
Don't get wrapped up in fear.
Just be assertive and have a continual sense of awareness. These two things are what keep most people out of trouble. It's rare when you take good precaution and pay the price for it.
