We had the good fortune of connecting with Martin Joseph and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Martin, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I have always wanted to start my own business ever since I could remember. I started making YouTube videos back in 2011 and I was in 4th grade trying to start any business I can and make money. I started to try to make T-Shirts and sell them on the Facebook marketplace for my youtube channel, and ever since then, I have always just been doing YouTube and starting ventures. I soon became known as the “youtube kid” at my school and made amazing video projects because I knew how to edit, and would edit videos for kids and they would pay me, and I just loved it. Going into high school I started to work 40-50 hours a week at a retail store, in which I wrote a book about it available on amazon – https://amzn.to/3qVkT2B and started to make websites and dropship on Shopify in class and during my free time. After all of this I quickly learned I’m not cut of for a job, I love doing my own work and owning my own business. After doing youtube for years I have learned a lot and do it full time, I also help other creators with their youtube channels, I do something called YouTube Automation where people try to automate youtube and I make the videos for them or have a content team that works on them, I also help my clients build websites to drive extra revenue. I have been very blessed and I am so luck to be where I am at, In March of 2021 I started my Christian media company MartinIsEpic LLC
What should our readers know about your business?
My company is a media company where we focus on helping creators do the work that they don’t like doing, editing videos, SEO/MetaData/ Building websites, thumbnails for youtube videos, and anything you can really think of we can do. Since I have been doing YouTube my whole life I am very familiar with the platform and love making YouTube videos for myself and also helping others accomplish their goals. Not everyone likes to show their face on YouTube or doesn’t know how to, so with YouTube Automation, I allow investors to invest in a YouTube channel and watch it grow as they continue to work with me and hire me to create content for their channels. We also help edit videos for big influencers on Tik Tok, YouTube, Instagram, and other social media platforms. Sometimes it does get hard, and all you can do is work harder every setback, learn from mistakes, and trust God through the process. I want everyone to learn that you can do whatever you want with social media nowadays and it’s just getting easier and easier. You don’t have to be in the NBA to play basketball for a living, you can become a trainer, teach people online through YouTube and Tik Tok, and on top of all that you can create a blog website to drive extra revenue. I see so many people with such potential and they always set a limit for themselves, Why not chase your dreams and give them a shot.

Website – https://minecraftmodded.com/
Above is my Minecraft YouTube Channel, and Minecraft website, where creators of Minecraft add-ons can advertise their creations for free, the website is monetized with Google Adsense which pays pretty well, and we monetize our download links with Linkvertise to get the most revenue. How I make money is from making a searchable youtube video like “The Best Shaders on Minecraft” which gets about 30,000 views within a month, then I lead a huge amount of those viewers to my website because they want the best shaders for Minecraft, in which I get paid by YouTube for the ads on my video and Google for the ads on my website, and finally, when they download it I get paid by Linkvertise for the downloads.
We love to help creators by building them valuable content for their channels, building websites for them that reach googles monitization requirements, and helping them drive the most revenue doing what they love.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Lake Pleasant is a pretty cool spot to go and take a friend in town, It has so many activities to do and it’s pretty peaceful and nice to enjoy the views and have fun. For the whole week, I would rent an RV and a slot for it and for the week plan out cool events to do like go fishing, swimming, hiking, going out to restaurants with live bands, and just taking a break from all the technology and enjoying what we have around us
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’m only where I am at from God, Jesus has helped me through all the hard times
