it was a hard week. wasn’t sure i could pull it off, but even the losers get lucky sometimes
i was able to do tons of rock stories, a podcast, a blogpost for that podcast, all the social media for it
now i can make thumbnails for the youtube page. the funny thing about the youtube page is at a glance you can see the hits to each of the episodes. whats fascinating is some of the episodes are doing way better than others.
i really want to spend some time re-doing the descriptions because clearly some are really working while others arent.
i also want to experiment on youtube shorts. i have this theory about bible verses. i dont think a lot of people who love the bible Also know how to make it look cool.
im not saying im that person, but what’s interesting about Christianity is, even if its hokey or cringe or lame, people respond to it. some of the songs, for example, in church are the worst tonal arrangements, terrible rhyming, and just plain bizarre – without being cool bizarre. and yet, it makes it to the show on Sunday
so even if my bible verse shorts are super lame, i bet they still get views.
i have 400+ subscribers on the Hear in LA youtube channel, in part because of the extraneous videos i put up there. yes theres the 104 episodes, but those were never intended to get huge views.
but when i talked to Victor at the Vista we talked about the Let’s All Go To The Lobby concession stand vintage clip. i wanted it for the blog page and noticed it was public domain, so I downloaded it and uploaded it right back up there, but with a better descriptor.
that mfer has 66,000 views. No it’s not millions, but it got me half of those subscribers. You only need 1,000 subscribers to start making money on YouTube.
If somehow I could spend just an hour a day working on that channel I bet you I could start paying the rent off youtube in a year or two.
i dont think it’s that hard.
