Few guests have the resume that Steve Zilberman can boast.

His video views on combined projects alone have reached nearly 2 BILLION and he's not stopping any time soon.

Starting his career in a band touring the country, he noticed the potential for Youtubers to blow up when he started working with Cherdley's after a short series of documentaries. After taking the first six videos viral with Cherdley's, Steve began working with countless artists from Oliver Tree, Bria & Chrissy, and now, Benny Blanco and Bella Poarch.

His strategy is founded in A/B Testing and jumping into the trends with both feet while they're hot. He reveals so much of what has gifted his clients their success and urges folks to make multiple types of the same content with some TikTok cheat codes of sorts.

Tune in for more industry secrets about virality, the power of the meme, and other content tips.
