Jake Paul@jakepaul · Team 10
Hi Product Hunt! Jake Paul here. Whilst most kids my age are debating which college major to declare, I'm furiously running towards achieving my dreams. My dreams, it would appear, are relatable to my 15 million social media followers and 3.5 billion video views. As well as maintaining my social media channels, I'm also an actor and play “Dirk” on the Disney Channel's Bizaardvark, "Lance" in the Youtube Red original movie Dance Camp and "Dugan" on Fox Digital's new movie Mono. From expanding my social media outreach to pushing the envelope on content creation and developing other talent under my social media label talent incubator, I'm working on a lot of great things that I'm excited to chat about. Ask away!
How does it feel knowing you've gone so far in your career? Ilysm

As an influencer how do you vet your deals? What are the most important considerations?
Malik
Malik@negamalireid · Bridging gaps between Ent. and Ads
@andrewett Also, what deals, aside from content creation, come across the table?
Jake Paul
Jake Paul@jakepaul · Team 10
@negamalireid @andrewett Great questions. Right off the bat its pretty easy to see wether a deal is solid or not. I take into consideration how the deal fits into my career and branding. Then from there I will look into how much they want out of it. Then the next step is to negotiate to a point where both parties are happy. Malik, A lot of different deals come across the table from acting deals, equity deals, investment deals, working with brands, appearances, interviews, and so on.

Hey Jake! What have you found to be the top 3 things that make people share, buy, click on something?
Jake Paul
Jake Paul@jakepaul · Team 10
@theo_dimarhos The internet is filled with content, noise, nonsense, but also great things. You first have to capture the viewers attention through an intriguing message/thumbnail. Then from there your product has to relate to that audience enough for them to click through. Messaging is everything..
Malik
Malik@negamalireid · Bridging gaps between Ent. and Ads
@jakepaul @theo_dimarhos about the message and thumbnail -- thoughts on clickbait?
Jake Paul
Jake Paul@jakepaul · Team 10
@negamalireid @theo_dimarhos its definitely powerful and very useful, if its not over used and saturated. You almost have to do it sometimes..

Hi Jake! Thanks so much for joining Product Hunt LIVE today. What's one piece of advice you've received that's helped you succeed?
Jake Paul
Jake Paul@jakepaul · Team 10
@ems_hodge Thanks Emily!! The biggest piece of advice I've gotten is "Successful people don't worry about what others are doing" I think this is a super important piece of advice in the world we live in. Everyone is so worried about what everyone else is doing VS. focusing on themselves. Once I stuck to this saying.. my life changed..

Hey Jake! Thanks for joining us. Was always curious of how you got started on Vine. I remember watching Logan when he (and Vine) were first getting started, then a bit later realizing there's also someone that looks a lot like him! The two of you are great. 💫

@tsunaze I find that time management is the most important thing to accomplishing a lot in one day. Scheduling is key.. Cut out all the noise. Thrive 15 is a great tool to learn about time management and scheduling.

hey
Do you ever plan on quitting vine?
What's your favorite part about being a viner
Do you plan on going to college
Jake Paul
Jake Paul@jakepaul · Team 10
@_flora_10 NO! I personally think that school isn't needed in the society we live in. All the education in the world is available on YouTube for free. You don't need to pay $50k a year from it.. School is pointless unless you want to be a doctor, lawyer, or veterinarian. Ive learned more in the past 2 years then any one of my friends from back home who are going to Ivy league schools for "business" I can out negotiate, sell, and work them.
@jakepaul I agree with you 100%

What's the deal with Team 10? What's the major difference between Team 10, and a management company?
Jake Paul
Jake Paul@jakepaul · Team 10
@negamalireid another great question. In short.. 1st, management is dead and not scalable. Team 10 is todays modern Disney. Thats the vision. We incubate talent from the start of their careers and have equity in perpetuity in peoples careers. (think Y - Combinator for talent) We also create content with the talent. Beyond that we are creating IP around our talent. Everything we do feeds into itself and grows it more. Influencers are powerful by themselves but combined its unstoppable. Team 10 is the answer to that.

Can u tell us your opinions of your top social media channels and how you successfully leveraged them. What are your thoughts on live streaming ?
Jake Paul
Jake Paul@jakepaul · Team 10
@dmgrossblatt The best social channels right now are Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. The rest will fade out in the long run (like we've seen happen with Vine) The best way to leverage different platforms is simply to create the most engaging, viral, and multi cultural content as possible. You also have to create different content for different platforms. Live streaming is another thing that is super popular right now because Zuck is pushing it. However, it is boring content. After 5 minutes what are people going to talk about? That type of content won't last... Also, people want to watch content when they want to watch it (Netflix's whole model and why they are successful) If you're a company and focusing budgets, time, etc.. on live then stop now while you can.

@jakepaul I could not help but notice that you did not mention youtube, will it fade?

@dmgrossblatt I dont think it will ever fade, but will always continue to be average. For the powerhouse that they are I don't think they have good direction. Very powerful in building loyal fan bases however..

Jake Paul
Jake Paul@jakepaul · Team 10
@bcgray00 THE best thing you can do is find out what you want to do.... and you are most likely already doing it, you just aren't thinking of it as a business. Do you have a hobby? If so, learn more about it and build a business around it. This is extremely important because you already love doing it, you know a lot about it, and thats when you can change the world!
