FAQ’s

Why was VBS created?

Video Biz School began with the idea of democratizing successful creatorship — in other words, empowering Video Creators to overcome the all the barriers and anxieties that are inherent when not only producing video content but building a sustainable creator business from your video audiences. We understand the struggles that come with putting your genuine self in front of a camera while also attempting to turn a small channel into a financially kick-ass business. We want all video entrepreneurs to feel confident in their ability to create quality content consistently and successfully meet all their growth goals.

To accomplish this, creators no doubt need the right foundations, the right tech and the right mentorship and accountability programs to move their channels further, faster. More importantly, though, new and existing creators need the bleeding-edge strategies and tactics to combine their individual passions and areas of expertise with long-term monetization strategies. Specifically identifying and honing content that leans into these elements — whatever that looks like for you — is what sets good creators apart from the great creators. Instead of building just another channel, the knowledge you’ll gain by registering for VBS will help you create a lasting digital legacy.

How can VBS help me grow my channel, even after the course is over?

At VBS, our goal isn’t just to give students the tools they need to start their journeys as video creators. We also aim to present continual opportunities for growth that are exclusively for VBS alumni. Here are 3 major opportunities exclusive to VBS students:

  • After your four weeks of video creation immersion end, you’ll have an exclusive opportunity to apply for potential investment from a board of professional finance experts. This is a unique opportunity to get funding for your creator career. Learn more about applying for investment.
  • Upon enrollment, students become eligible for a partial or full scholarship that helps offset the costs of the program. The VBS affiliate program also gives students the chance to recoup the program cost. For each person brought into the program on your recommendation, you will receive 10% off the price of another VBS course. Learn more about our affiliate program.
  • Upon graduation, you will be able to join the VBS alumni online community, a place for graduates to benefit from conversations and Q&As guided by influencers and mentors. This means that not only will you have the opportunity to collaborate and learn from your fellow classmates during the program, but you will also have the ability to connect with the ever-growing network of past and future VBS creators. Learn more about online communities for alumni.

How can VBS students go on to be backed by investors?

At the end of the course, you will have the opportunity to submit a video to the VBS partner panel, a group of investors on the lookout for outstanding up-and-coming talent. If selected, you may receive SERIOUS financial backing to monetize beyond your channel.

How can I share the program with friends (and earn $ at the same time)?

Send them an affiliate link! Once you enroll, you will automatically become a member of the VBS affiliate program. Our team will provide you with a unique URL that you can share on social media or in a private message with a friend. For every new person that enrolls in the program using your link, you will receive 10% off the cost of enrollment for a future VBS program. In this case, recommending really does pay off!

How can I benefit from the VBS Online Student Communities?

There’s an old saying in business: “It’s all about who you know.” Well, get ready because you’re about to make connections with a whole bunch of passionate, talented video creators just like you!

VBS offers a number of community engagement opportunities exclusive to our students and alumni. Upon enrollment, you will automatically be invited to join the current VBS cohort on Discord with all your classmates. After you graduate, you will also be eligible to join a VBS alumni group to keep in contact with your VBS mentors and an expansive community of fellow graduates. The program may only last four weeks, but the community network you join lasts for a lifetime.

Will I receive personalized instruction in this course?

Yes! Not only will you have access to an online community of mentors, creators, and fellow students, you will receive a live one-on-one consultation with Kydee at the end of the course. This meeting is key; Kydee will directly work with you on your submission for potential investment opportunities. Also, post-graduation, you will have the chance to book one-on-one sessions with Kydee as often as you want!

How long does each program last?

Our Video Creator to Biz Builder Program takes four weeks to complete. It’s simply the best online creator education money can buy to learn how to build, grow and monetize your audience well beyond the YouTube Partner program. We know creators have hectic schedules, so we have designed a program that allows you to go at your own pace. The program is coupled with expert live streams, Q&A’s and one-on-one sessions with a VBS mentor. 

Who is eligible to enroll?

Please note that the Fall 2021 cohort focuses on intermediate-level creators — not beginners. If you feel you need to enroll in a beginner program, stay tuned. VBS will be offering appropriate programs for all skill levels soon!

How many other creators will be in my cohort?

It really depends. We keep our cohorts intentionally small to give all students the most time with VBS mentors and experts as possible. The course is designed to allow you to interact with your peers, guides, and expert streamers in a variety of ways.

Do you have preferred software tools that you use for video editing?

At VBS, we use Adobe Creative Cloud. Why? Because it has a ton of professional tools that can be used across multiple platforms. But that’s not to say that other video editing platforms aren’t good. Just like your content, everybody has a unique style when it comes to editing. We are happy to provide recommendations, but ultimately, you use what works best for you!

Can I access materials once the program is over?

Absolutely! To provide as much lasting value to creators as possible, we provide unlimited access to view and download materials — even after the program has ended.

Can I get a refund?

If you decide this program isn’t for you, you can receive a full refund up until the start date of the curriculum. Once the first week of the curriculum has been made available, though, you will no longer be eligible for a refund.
