YouTube Influencer Of The Month: Tomas Villegas

Meet Tomas – our November Influencer of the Month! He has been a member of our community for over a year and has worked with us on a variety of campaigns. His passion for providing service to his viewers is visible in every video he creates about technology and beyond. He has found creative angles to create videos for clients such as Sonicare and Gillette while staying true to his style and voice as a tech expert. His attention to detail and dedication to a campaign makes him a pleasure to work with. Tomas’ channel appeals to both tech enthusiasts and the everyday tech consumer! His videos are fun, informative and engaging. For example, in order to create a video about a Gillette razor that fit into his channel, he included his review in a video about tips for being on Camera. We enjoy working with Tomas, because his videos are always top quality and his style is accessible to all.

Any fun facts about yourself that you’d like to share?

I enlisted and served in the United States Marine Corps, there I was a combat engineer and it is where I began my interest in becoming a jack-of-all-trades and a master of none. That mindset and ability has served me well in creating video reviews on YouTube. I love to play basketball from time to time and I have a high interest in human performance technology.

What made you want to be a content creator?
I really enjoy technology, I found myself fascinated with camera equipment and the art of videography. I took those two and put them together. This made it possible for me to make video reviews to help others as the evaluated electronics to purchase for themselves. I love helping others make the best possible purchasing decision by continually making video reviews of technology.

What advice would you give someone that is just starting out on YouTube?

Work to refine yourself as a creator and don’t worry about what others think or what other creators are doing while you hone your skills. Also don’t get wrapped up in the pursuit of the newest and best equipment out there – take time to learn the tools you have; this will help you do your best possible work. Focus on your learning, your workflow, and your audience.

What are some reasons you use the platform?
I’m given opportunities to work with some brands/companies I would never be able to do so otherwise; allows me to work on some great campaigns that feature some really cool stuff. Oh and being compensated fairly for the work I do is a really nice perk.

What has been your favorite program/product so far?
It was my most recent work on the Gillette Mach 3, men’s razor. This was the first time I was able to present an idea to for a brand campaign. I really enjoyed having input to the type of content that was to be created for a brand. It was a great experience and is something I really enjoy about working with
