Adam Schleichkorn 

Adam has a pretty unique story, as he was the first Youtuber to appear on National News, back in 2007 for a video titled “Fence Plowing”. He was interviewed by 20/20, FOXNews, ABC News, the NY Times, and many others, at a time where people still really couldn’t even fully grasp what Youtube actually was. That then lead him to being in one of the first groups of creators to be accepted into Youtube’s “Partner Program”. Shortly thereafter, Adam had 2 videos featured on Youtube’s main page, then an additional 15-20 featured on the category pages, and he started generating enough revenue to become a full-time Youtuber.

With a Masters in Interactive Multimedia, Adam specialized in Social Media and video editing. He is now currently responsible for over 78 Million video views across the web, 55 Million of those on Youtube (, , with a total of over 20,000 subscribers. This was not the case of a “one-hit wonder”, as he has 7 videos over a million views, and 65+ videos with over 100,000. Adam also created and currently runs a Facebook page with over 5,000 followers (, as well as a Twitter account with over 3,000 (, both of which are updated several times 7 days a week, and constantly growing.

Adam is proficient in and familiar with every possible Social Media site out there, but his main specialty is definitely Youtube. Over the years he’s maintained working relationships with many popular sites, and has landed videos on literally every single one on them, some of which could even pull in 100,000 views in a day or more (ie. Mashable, Huffington Post, Cheezburger, Tosh.0, etc.). Since he is a long-time Youtube partner, he attends monthly private meetings and has learned additional techniques directly from the source, plus gained many valuable contacts in the Youtube/Google offices, which definitely give a leg up on competition. Adam has always touted himself as a “new school” SEO guy, especially since Google purchased Youtube several years back, he stands firm that there’s no better SEO tactic than a popular video.
