Episode Summary

In this Elder Law Growth podcast episode, host Amie Hurst interviews Paul Rabalais, Esq., a successful Estate Planning attorney and YouTube creator.

The Journey of Growth

Paul began his YouTube channel as a way to educate prospective clients, create content for his website, and provide training for his staff. He initially used his iPhone camera for his videos and had no need for fancy editing software. Over the years, he gradually upgraded his setup, using a teleprompter and a ring light.

Despite the slow growth in the beginning, Paul encourages anyone interested in starting a YouTube channel to focus on providing value and not obsess over subscriber numbers. His secret to success lies in providing value, learning from comments and feedback, and continually providing more value.

Impact on His Practice

Paul shares that his YouTube channel has significantly changed his practice and has been instrumental in bringing in new clients. 

He attributes the channel for facilitating business inquiries, prospective clients, and even partnerships for forming new companies. He reveals that two-thirds of his clients over the last two years have watched his videos on YouTube, underlining the influence of his channel.

Addressing YouTube Skeptics

Addressing the skeptics, Paul emphasizes the three keys to success in any business: 

1) Giving value
2) Working hard
3) Being patient

He acknowledges the fear among some attorneys of giving out too much valuable information on YouTube and consequently facing lawsuits or losing clients. 

However, he explains that he always keeps things general in his videos, never gives one-on-one advice, and remains mindful of not providing advice based on just one comment or question.

In Conclusion

Paul extends an invitation to any attorneys starting their YouTube channels and in need of guidance or advice. He encourages them to stick with it!

The episode concludes with Amie highlighting the importance of patience, consistent value creation, and putting in the time and effort, as exemplified by Paul’s YouTube journey.
