Import your videos and movie creations from Google Photos to your YouTube channel

While it's easy to backup your videos to the new Google Photos, and even to create your own movies, YouTube offers more advanced editing tools, plus options to promote and even monetize your videos.

It's easy to import your videos and movie creations from Google Photos to YouTube:

1. Sign in to YouTube

2. Open the Upload page
www.youtube.com/upload

3. Click "Import" under "Import Videos from Google Photos"

4. Select the videos you want to import

5. Add title, description and tags

6. Publish your video

Note that if your YouTube channel is connected to a Google+ Local or Brand Page, you can import videos from a manager's Google Photos or from videos uploaded to the connected Google+ Page

- if you want to import videos from a Google account that is a manager of the channel and Page, sign in as the manager, then switch to your Page-connected channel identity (www.youtube.com/channel_switcher)

- if you want to import videos uploaded to the Google+ Page connected to your YouTube channel, you must sign into that channel's special Google account directly. Learn how to set up a password for your Google+ Page:

For more detailed information, read my post to learn how - and why - you can import your videos from Google Photos to YouTube:

http://www.peggyktc.com/2014/11/import-google-plus-videos-youtube.html
Update May 2015: you can now import videos from Google Photos to YouTube, both regular videos and automatic "Creations", whether you have a Google+ profile or not. The screen shots and links have been updated to reflect that ...

How to Create Content (Even If You're a Terrible Writer)

Content has been king for a very long time, and that doesn’t look like it will be changing anytime soon. And that’s all well and good if you’re an A+ writer, but what happens if you want to pack your business blog full of great content when you think you suck at writing?

Sell on Shopify With "Buy It" Pins via Shopify
Awesome News

Pinterest and Shopify have partnered to make it easy for businesses to sell their products on Pinterest using Buyable Pins.

This new type of Pin — announced earlier today — includes a “Buy it” button that lets consumers checkout and pay for products they discover on Pinterest using Apple Pay or their credit card.

I can't wait to play with this!

The Step-by-Step Guide to Using Twitter Ads for Lead Generation

Using Twitter ads for lead generation is all about strategy. Those “needy teenager” ads you see are based on the metric of high engagement. They’re asking for attention because the more attention they get, the more successful they are considered. These ads could drive tons of user interaction and be a great tool for solidifying brand awareness.

Google Plus Is Isn't Dead
You Fools

Alive, kicking and going places. I'm on board, ready for the next wave.

And some other badly mashed clichés.

Via +Eric Enge
Joshua Berg originally shared to Social Media News:
 
An Interview With The Head of Google+

This is probably the most detail I've heard +Bradley Horowitz (head of Streams and Photos), or anyone else at Google talk about the future of Google+, confirming that not only is it not dead, but that we’re actually adapting to how the product is successful in market and doubling-down on that.

Definitely a worthwhile read, with plenty of interesting tidbits. Thanks to +Steven Levy for getting the inside scoop on this. These were some of my favorite questions...


Is it fair to say Google is distancing itself from the original concept of Plus?

It’s fair to say you’re about to see a huge shift in what Plus is becoming. It’s a shift in response to what users are telling us. That’s a very healthy and natural thing. As opposed to sticking to strategies of years ago, we’re actually adapting to how the product is successful in market and doubling-down on that.


Looks like we also have confirmation that the Google+ might be dropping its name ideas have not seriously been considered.


Have you ever thought of dropping the name “Plus”?

I’m not sure what that would accomplish. It hasn’t seriously crossed my mind. I think there are product pivots and refinements to what that product actually is. We have been less than clear about who that product is good for and who that product is for and what it’s good for. I think you’re seeing us crisp that up and actually have a much better articulated value proposition so that that becomes very evident to users: what, when and why to use this product.


This one is interesting, in case you thought Google was no longer valuing G+ in terms of helping to understand user's identity outside of Google+ across its other platforms:


How successful was Google Plus in understanding who was using Google in general?

It’s created a huge amount of value in creating common identity for users. The Google of 10 years ago was many separate, silo-ed identity and sharing systems. I think we have been successful in unifying that experience for users. And anytime you see a name or a face on Google, our team provides the infrastructure. And it is a service that is provided to all of Google, so whether you’re on search or maps or whatever, this team helps power that service.

I love it here. I've made lots of friends and spoken at conferences on why Google+ is such an important strategy for business success.


Are You New to Google+?
I created some stuff you might find useful.

The Twitter Addict's Guide to Google+ explains the terminology and basics in a way that Twitter users will understand, drawing comparisons and differences between the two.

Google+ for Business is a complete guide which accompanies my talks which will take you through creating an effective profile, using simple techniques to build your brand and engage an audience, right through to using Communities.

Bagels in New York were on our bucket list. When we spotted this place for a breakfast trip, we weren't disappointed. Plenty of choice of bagel flavours, sizes and toppings, I worked out somewhere in the region of 1,352 combinations including toasting or not and larger sizes. I couldn't even remember our two options and was amazed at how the staff managed it! Food was great, staff were very friendly and accommodating but only slightly let down by the seating and space. For the budget, no real complaints. Well worth a breakfast visit.

Amazing. Great service. Food was awesome and the waiting staff attentive without rushing us, despite it being VERY busy during our Friday evening visit. Warning for fellow Brits: don't expect 6 oz, 8 oz etc. steaks. It's just "a steak". There's no weight. They are huge though, so careful on the starter and side dish orders. Whilst it was by far our most expensive meal out, it was worth every dime, but I certainly wouldn't be doing it every night.

Allow plenty of time. We expected to be in the museum for 1-2 hours and we're amazed to discover that we'd been in there 3.5! This is like no museum you've ever been in elsewhere and is emotionally exhausting. I actually reached a point where I couldn't absorb any more information or emotion. You have been warned. Very well presented, very respectful and a celebration of the heroism of New Yorkers on that fateful day. I was also very pleased to see no blame or finger-pointing and a fair, considered explanation of the culprits and an admission of the failures that contributed to this dreadful event. If you're experiencing New York for more than a few days, this is a must-see.

Great location within walking distance of Times Square, Central Park, Bloomingdales, Empire State and the Rockefeller Centre amongst others. The Chrysler Building could be viewed from our window too. Staff were friendly and helpful and the room spacious, with the usual trimmings you'd expect; big screen TV with plenty of channels, desk, comfortable chairs and table. Couldn't fault it at all. Thank you.
