You are going to need good content if you want people to watch. That is a specific bunch of somethings that you want them to learn. The woodwhisperer is not really telling anything new that has not been said before or can’t be read in the most basic of magazines. However he has chunked the info into understandable bits. The presentation style is what sells it.

I have a background in training and would offer a few tips. I’ll try not to go on and on (too late).
  1. consider your audience: Who are you targeting? Skill Level?
    woodwhisperer targets beginners
  2. How will you get their attention? Motivate them?
    woodwhisperer uses humor and the occasional appearance of a female. (See for a healthy use of this strategy).
  3. what specificaly do you want them to learn and how detailed?
    make alist of learming outcomes

hope this helps
