The Nomad Capitalist – Rare interview in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia – Greg Hung Show

The Nomad Capitalist – Rare interview in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

During a tough year for a lot of people you have to make the most our of a situation. As a content creator that is comfortable behind the camera and in front of it I created my own opportunity while in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. I reached our to Andrew Henderson of the Nomad Capitalist for a video interview. You can read his book here.

Andrew is a hard-worker. If you look at his online social media channels in particular his youtube channel you will see how active he is. He has amassed 127000 youtube subscribers without even monetizing on it. Watch the video to find out why. 

Some traditional mindsets might think his ideas are quite extreme. Go where you are treated best to even renouncing his American Citizenship. For someone that has already experienced better treatment in other countries like Malaysia I can relate to Andrew on some levels.

Even as a content creator that is trying to reach new heights I may one day look at the possibilities down the road for reducing my taxes legally. I encourage you to watch the Full Interview. You can listen to the Full Audio Interview on your favorite podcast channel on the Greg Hung Show in July.

I was a one man band here conducting the interview and filming. It’s quiet challenging to do a 2 camera interview with 3 audio sources while being in front of the camera. I took half the day to setup my gear. You check out my full gear list and active links on my gear page

Ryan from the Colony Cowork Space helped me set up the slides on the television using Google Slides and casting technology. Big thanks to the Colony Cowork space in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.

I filmed the primary camera on my Panasonic GH5 at 4K resolution to crop in with the 24-105 Canon lens on Viltrox lens adaptor. This was not the most flattering angle, but my options were a bit limited in the room plus I was hosting an interview so I had limited time and no assistants to help monitor. I attached a wireless Saramonic Lav microphone for primary audio and I used a wired lav mic to the H5 Zoom recorder.

The second camera I filmed with a Canon SLR 50mm F1.4 and my Rode Video Mic Pro for a 3rd audio backup source.

I also used my Rode Interview SCL6 kit for backup audio. I ended up using the audio from here as were less files to synch. This resulted in a lot of wires ,but I wanted to capture good audio at all costs and have an audio backup.

For the lighting I used natural lighting and an led light. The lighting changed quickly during the hour and I had to make exposure adjustments in post production later on.

I edited the Video in Adobe Premiere Pro and my first pass I just synched the audio with the primary camera. After trimming the video and audio on this first pass I synched it with the second camera angle for a second revision. The 3rd pass I added titles and plenty of Broll from storyblocks.com using my membership and some of the footage from chicvoyageproductions.com this site.

Learn Pinterest with humble guru Vincent Ng

I’m excited to introduce Vancouver’s Vincent Ng. We are gong to learn Pinterest with him today. Vincent is a Pinterest specialist that owns marketing agency mcngmarketing. He was introduced to me by friend Alex Yu who I also interviewed. Pininterest is one of those social networks that doesn’t get as much attention as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. However, I  believe Pinterest is an important visual platform that can be used for businesses. It was refreshing to talk about a different social network and learn from Vince. He has about 4000 followers on Pinterest and is a Pinterest speaker at the upcoming Social Media Marketing world in San Diego March 2015, so no doubt he knows his stuff. Thanks to Tree Organic for letting us do the interview at their coffee shop in Yaletown Vancouver. Thanks to Vincent for the interview!

 Video 1

In this video Vincent talks about how he went from a Starbucks manager to getting his early start with Pinterest. He explains to us what it is and how it works. Vincent also explains how to built his following.

Video 2

In this video Vincent talks about the size of the Pinterest audience and who makes up that audience. The largest user base is in the United States (45-50 million) followed by Canada. He also clarifies that Pinterest is a good fit for businesses looking to reach an American audience. Vincent lists some businesses such as Lululemon, Nordstrom, and other companies that are doing a good job of using Pinterest and perhaps worth studying.  We also discuss some of the differences between Pinterest Vs Instagram. Vincent contrasts users behavior between mobile and desktop.

We switch gears to talk about content producing in terms of podcasting. Vincent shares the gear, costs, and some of the realities of podcasting. The launch, relationships, and who you interview are important aspects of the podcast that Vincent mentions.

Video 3

We continue to talk about how Vincent built his peer relationships as well as the importance of knowing who your podcasting audience is. He talks about not limiting oneself to the local market, which he refers to the marketing of old. Instead he encourages thinking about marketing more globally. Vincent believes that it’s important to give and take and be different to stand out. He shares some other social media gurus he follows, but cautions not to follow someone blindly and use a critical mind. Vince shares a great nugget that reveals not fall in love with the way we deliver the customers problem rather to actually solve the customers problem.

Building a Social Media following & Video production business with Vancouver Entrepreneur Alex Yu

I came for a visit to Vancouver after almost 2 years away. My friend mentioned that our mutual friend Alex had built a full-time business doing video production and a strong social media following using Youtube and Facebook during my time away.

Alex has built a following of 43,000 subscribers on YouTube and 15,1000 likes on Facebook focusing on Transformer videos and reviews. He also owns a local video production company Ragin Ronin productions.

In this video series I will try to unlock some of the keys to success that Alex has had building his video production company and his social media following.

In video 1 of 3 we will talk about some keys to doing well on Youtube, what gear Alex uses, and how he started his video production business. I apologize for the poor sound quality. We ended up meeting at one of the busiest malls during the Christmas holidays so it was super loud background noise that I’ve tried to reduce in post production.

What I found particularly interesting was that Alex said it took 4 years to build his audience. He also stressed consistently with publishing content on  a regular schedule, which is an area I could improve on myself. He also shared what gear he uses, but the important thing he stressed was to get started and play with what you have. He also shared how he got started in the video business by volunteering to do videos for free at the beginning. He even managed to get a $200 donation, a $300 donation, and then a $500 donation before deciding to do it full-time. Alex also reviewed that he does the Youtube videos part-time, but the video production also takes the majority of his time. I think this is a good approach doing free-lance video work because the skill of video production is transferable to youtube.

In video 2 we talked about some Social media tactics such as relating social media accounts to post to your Facebook and twitter simultaneously as an example. Alex also talks about whether he uses a script or does he wing it for his Youtube videos. An interesting point Alex makes is that of Social Media etiquette. One example he talks about is not abusing your Facebook friends network by posting content that they didn’t sign up for. That is what your Facebook Page is about.

In video 3 Alex reveals he supports hootsuite twitter as a source of information and supports Youtube cross-collaboration if it is a good fit. Because his Youtube Channel is related to the entertainment industry his posts musts be timely so he has developed a daily routine to gather information. He also impressively posts about 3 videos a week. His number one advice is to be original and do to something you love. What I found interesting is that Alex doesn’t have a blog yet and chooses to focus his efforts on Youtube and the Facebook platforms to build his business. This is evidence that you don’t necessarily need a website or a blog to generate Internet revenue.

I plan to do more of these videos with Entrepreneurs around the world. Please sign up to our newsletter for an update on other videos and for the rest of the videos from Alex.
