    WATCH NICK’S LIVE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lV73tAz6jVE&ab_channel=NickNimmin

    Morning friends,

    I’ve been pretty transparent on my strengths and weakness –> video/youtube is my weak area. In a world going video/virtual I’d like to get better on it. Some how I stumbled on Nick Nimmin’s channel. Watching him live today, he gives plenty of advice of youtube strategies. And you can ask him questions. He has a feature on to collect funds from questioners (monetize – range $5-$400). Which I thought could be a great way to earn money for anyone, but CBS specifically. Thinking since Buddy’s already has done Writers Portfolio reviews, it could be a possibility. Money could be used to cover CBS cost – website, hosting, printing, marketing materials, food, (lol) etc. Nick is still live now. He also has a facebook page – there’s 3 questions to get in – the first ask if you are a paid member – I have no clue how anyone becomes a paid member – I just found the dude but he gives announcements to join the group, ask questions, intermittently throughout his live. PS: He’s still live streaming now. @buddyscalera @redheadeded @kpei137 @thesurrealari @thedreamer @mrkylerose

    Wow, nice find @maryamsmarkers – I remember watching a few of Nick Nimmin’s videos when I was getting started.

    I didn’t really notice that he has a paid feature, but now that you mention it, I see it. This is actually a really good find. I need to watch some of these videos. Thank you!

      I didn’t know that was even a thing on youtube. Yes, give it a go. I did buy a question, both for advice that you already gave and to actually see how that financial part works. It seems like a sliding scale and depending on the amount of characters, the fee is more. Probably can control the settings of monetization too. I think you should try that out for sure Buddy. You offer great advice. @buddyscalera

      Just wondering if we will have any more Google Meets, for members? To come on as a group to video chat together – get some of the word out on the challenge needs, that way and to still keep our regular hellos going between us as a CBS group. @buddyscalera

        I don’t know. I am always happy to meet with the group. Attendance has been very low.

        That said, if a few of us want to get together, I will start scheduling them again.

        What do you think @maryamsmarkers ?

          Yea I think it would be great to meet with the group. Give the group updates, engage with them directly, and ask them what are they up to – a great way to pull in those who haven’t done the challenge – ask what are they doing instead, and how the CBS can be a support system and vice versa. Even asking them to share out the next events on Tuesdays along with maybe giving the members a chance to see each other. Ask them what would they like/need to see on our Youtube channel too. That would totally help get some extra insight – could build out for the next year, possibly. If the next challenge start dates are near, mention that so members can schedule it and maybe make another hashtag. Get some CBS student voices – make it a monthly or bi-monthly meeting so those of us who originally joined the CBS community can still stay included beyond the message boards.

          I enjoy the community conferences, but I can understand low attendance discouraging future get-togethers.

          The youtube videos have been great, though most of the time I seem to be watching them after the fact.

          But I watch every one, and share them with other creators I know. Once made they’re available indefinitely, too, so it’s not like current traffic is a predictor for future interest. I feel like the big challenge right now is continually getting the word out; once you have enough eyeballs, finding interested participants gets a lot easier. I really enjoy the CBS newsletters, and I feel like those can be leveraged to bring attention to the CBS forums as well. I would propose adding links to the Brian Pulido, Darren Sanchez and other interviews with each edition to help build value, as well as upcoming events (which you already do a pretty good job there). Building an audience with a newsletter was one of the key takeaways from Mr. Pulido’s interview for me, as well as making those continual “asks”. It’s the “trickle, flow, flood” mentality, where the big hurdle is seeing past your circumstance to focus on your goal, something we all struggle with occasionally.

    I agree, I flondered a bit more this year than last year and the community calls and events were very helpful to me in staying connected on the forums and with more than just a few people on chat.

    Thanks,

    D. Alley, the RedheadedEd.

      Having a target date of every Tuesday has really been helpful in getting better at YouTube. You need a lot of practice.
