About the Instructor


Hi, I'm Aprilynne, and I'll be your BGTY instructor.


I started creating YouTube videos in July 2021. I had absolutely no audio, video, or editing experience, but I was determined to get some attention.

Teaching myself the basics, I was able to get monetized within 4 months. I started making $100/day from my YouTube channel alone. Within 9 months, I reached 20,000 subscribers.


YouTube has given me:

  • 5 figures in ad revenue
  • Over $3,500 in sponsorships
  • Over $1,500 in consulting revenue
  • A $50,000 freelancing gig 
  • Features in Business Insider and The Verge
  • A reputation as an industry expert
  • Valuable introductions 

... And that was only in 9 months

I won't teach you how to reach a million subscribers on YouTube


Frankly, I don't know how - I haven't done it before, and I'm not going to pretend I have. But YouTubers with millions of subscribers often forget what it's like to be starting from zero, and as a result they're often not the best instructors for beginners.


That's precisely why this course exists - designed with beginners in mind, focused purely on the period of time between zero and monetized. I'm here to teach you everything I know. So if you're ready to start on your YouTube journey, get your camera ready - I'll see you in class
