the mastermind behind PaulVuTV
Paul always wanted to become a big entertainer, but he was tired of relying on TV production companies to give him his 15 minutes of fame.
After he found Jumpcut, Paul quickly realized he could combine his background as a professional magician with social media content to create viral videos.
Paul now has over 3 million Facebook fans, makes nearly 6 figures a month off social media alone, and has been featured on the Ellen Show. (Yes, THAT Ellen show.)
A “Magical” Talent That Wasn’t Appreciated
You’re probably not as talented as Paul.
Not because you’re incompetent or anything like that. Paul’s just that amazing.
See, Paul’s a professional magician.
Yup. He literally makes things disappear for a living.
Paul knew his talent was special. He knew people would be in awe of his tricks. And he knew he could reach millions of people around the world with his insane magic skills.
Unfortunately, TV production companies didn’t see it that way.
Rather than explain it to you, check out what Paul wrote in his introduction to the Jumpcut community:
Nearly one year ago, I thought I had made my big break. I was given the opportunity to perform in front of millions of people on national TV While my performance was fine, it didn't generate the success I thought I was going to get, rather my very TV presence faded away within the next day. It was as if I had never done that job. I was resilient and decided to audition for other shows such as "America's Got Talent" and "Penn and Teller's Fool Us". I had generated new material and content for these companies, just to be rejected minutes from setting foot in the casting room.“
Paul was tired of letting TV dictate his success. So he decided he would get his revenge.
Paul was going to turn the tables and make TV networks chase him.
YouTube: A New Path for Magical Virality
The logical next step for Paul was to try a different medium for his magic tricks.
What was the best new medium for gaining a massive audience?
It didn’t take long for Paul to realize that. He saw other influencers gain huge online followings, so why not do it himself?
Soon enough, Paul found Viral Academy. Once he recognized that this was the premium course that was going to accelerate his learning curve on YouTube, he immediately signed up.
Why was it an easy decision for Paul? In his own words:
I'm here today to put my career into my own hands, and I tell you this, I am more motivated than I have ever been.
See Paul was determined to become a successful YouTuber and prove to the production companies were wrong for ignoring him.
But as he began creating content for YouTube, the unthinkable happened:
Facebook: A New Soulmate Platform
Viral Academy focuses a majority of it’s material on YouTube, but the truth is that the core concepts apply to ANY social media platform.
Knowing how relevant Facebook is in today’s media landscape, Viral Academy does teach Facebook growth-hacking as well.
This course was Paul’s bread and butter.
He used the course exactly as prescribed and his results were phenomenal.
So phenomenal, that Kong joked he should teach the Facebook course instead of Shamsi.
Here’s the only proof you’ll need to see:
292 MILLION VIEWS. ON ONE VIDEO.
Looks like the student has become the master, huh?
Taking Control Back from the TV Companies:
To say Paul has made it as an influencer would be selling him short. Check out what he’s accomplished so far:
- 108K YouTube Subscribers
- 4.6M Facebook Followers
- Insanely Viral Videos such as
- Crazy Street Magic Compilation (Best of Paul Vu) - 292 Million Views
- Animojis React to Magic -- 8.1 Million Views
- People React To CRAZY Street Magic! (Los Angeles/New York) --46 Million Views
- DRUNK people REACT to MAGIC! -- 73 Million views
The best part? He never again needs to rely on anyone else to reach his goals. No producer, TV company or media executive can tell Paul what he should or shouldn’t be doing.
In fact, the media companies actually reach out to him instead.
Are you familiar with Ellen DeGeneres?
Yes - that Ellen DeGeneres. The one who literally everyone in the US knows.
She had the pleasure of watching Paul’s magic tricks live in person:
How insane is that?
Paul got on one of the most popular TV shows in the world just because some executive found his amazing magic videos.
He’ll be the first to tell you how much of a game changer it’s been to have control over his career.
Moving forward, Paul’s working on creating a magic course for his audience, with the help of Jumpcut’s Automated Income Machine course. He hopes it’ll add a ton of income to his successful career.
Here’s Paul introducing himself to our AIM community:
Paul says after going “through 6+ hours of coursework in 2 days and I can say this is the most value I’ve ever seen in an info product. I’ve spent thousands on other courses and nothing really beats the production quality, teaching and course material of Jumpcut!”
We’ll be sure to update you once he shares the results of his 2nd course. And based on how well he’s crushed his social media game, we’re confident the results will be stellar.
Congrats on the success so far, Paul!
