I’m trying out a new microphone, so I thought I’d record a quick episode of Ask Paul Colligan. In this episode I answer the age old question, “Should I Enroll My Kindle Book In The Amazon KDP Select Program.”
(Rated ★★★★★) – http://www.21QuestionsAboutYouTube.com Everybody dreams of making their videos viral. A couple of simple facts you should know. Number one, thinking your video is going to be viral is an absolutely terrible strategy. You’ve heard the number of hours of content uploaded to YouTube every minute. How many of them are viral? Such a minimal amount.
The chances for you to make your video viral is infinitesimally small; it is a terrible strategy.
Now if for some reason, at some point your video becomes viral, if a zillion people downloaded it, great, leverage it, take hold of it. But the chances of that are up there with you winning the lottery. It is very hard to plan a viral video, it’s just something that you just have to know how to do.
http://www.21QuestionsAboutYouTube.comYouTube takes any format you send them, so don’t worry about it. Do they take X? Yes. Do they take Y? Yes. Do they take Mac? Linux? Windows? Yes, yes, and yes.
YouTube will take any video format produced by any major, realistic video editing system. So don’t worry about trans-coding or formatting for YouTube, just give them what you’ve got and let them take it from there. They will do everything they can to make it look as good as is possible.
Now realize, if you send them a dead duck, it’s still a dead duck—it might be one of the best looking dead ducks they’ve ever had. Send them high quality, send them whatever format you want, and YouTube will make it look as good as possible.
http://www.InstantCustomer.com Replay of the March Webcast where we examined the new YouTube OneChannel program and how you can respond and profit from the changes made at YouTube. Host Paul Colligan walked through strategies and processes for making the most of YouTube with these recent changes.
Google Reader has been the backbone of my content aggregation and consumption strategy for as long as I can remember. I run everything through it and sync it through all of my devices using Reeder and the like.
I get that the general world hasn't grabbed onto RSS the way we all hoped it would but this one, friends, is going to hurt.
BTW, I just checked, Feedburner is not currently on the list.
What is your take? Will you miss it as much as I will? Does anyone have an alternative?
