The Subject is YouTube!
Why Everyone should be using it.
What to think about: Just Get Started!
We cover many subjects on the matter that is YouTube, but most especially how videos and particularly videos uploaded to or produced using YouTube's tools (Hangouts-on-Air especially) are a MUST for any marketing focus in this day and age.
 
We move the discussion to YouTube!
Last week +Jimbo Marshall  joined us, and offered a valuable collection of great advice, tips, and industry essentials for making videos and developing skills that contribute to effective storytelling and messaging using this visual media.

This week we advance forward applying all that wisdom into practical applications for developing and processing YouTube campaigns. 

Why YouTube?

How hard is it? Can I manage it myself?

What are the most important things to remember?

What's a YouTube Card?

Do Hangouts On Air help my SEO?

We will answer these questions and more this Saturday on "Saturday Morning Marketing Smarties!"

Molly will spearhead the presentation giving us critical basics regarding YouTube, with the rest of us contributing our knowledge and experience as well. Some details about Molly....

Putting a Village on the (Google) MAPS!
This project by the +EagleCO Vail2015 team goes beyond maps!

My friend +Debi Davis was instrumental in realizing this project along with a team of others, who not only explored uses of Google Maps for spotlighting a town's assets, but many other aspects of getting small businesses in that town into Google's Small Business pages and search results. This article by her goes into great detail on the process so far, and is a must read for those interested in localized SEO and/or mapping in general.

Here additionally is a link to Debi's post on G+ announcing the milestone (comments there are interesting!):  https://plus.google.com/u/0/+DebiDavis/posts/3Mqqu735n7S
Local businesses are the primary providers of locally consumed products and services. But businesses must be on Google Maps for customers to find them!

This is the FOURTH Sunday Evening Edition of my New Variety Show!
A variety show. Something awesome you can leave on in the background in place of CNN or Fox News.
(The first hour is a musical prelude. Show starts at 6.)

YouTube Mobile Link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkSF8ZlSIPg
Featuring Music! Readings! Special Guests! Philosophy! Tech-Talk! Q&A! (And "The Eyes Closed" segments!)

This week will include featured bits on using Pixlr's free image editing software, some beautiful poetry (Including my own "Adventure Story"), some live Flute and possibly also some Keyboard performances, live visits with brave friends, some raves on video software used in the show, more Abundance talks and other features, including the first "The Eyes Closed" segment. And I will possibly create the first segment of "The Eyes Closed" live. I will be creating another multi-track recording with harmony live using Audacity, and further reading from "The Willot Papers".

This is show number Four - so tune in for the LIVE TV style flubs, but also to see what is possible live as I take the Open Broadcast Software I am using (http://obsproject.com) through its paces!

The effects in the musical interlude were provided by http://electricsheep.org

In this Pixlr Editor tutorial, we will punch holes in an upper layer to reveal the layer below through those holes! 
We will be using a layer mask to do this, and converting some text to pixels so we can use it as our cookie cutter! We will also make some shapes and do some hole cutting with those.

Terry's Tips for Optimizing YouTube Vids
I'm a bit honored at the accolades my recent rant produced, but here it is for you folks following me to enjoy! :-)
By narrowing one's niche to the (seeming) extreme, one also gets to test a niche for audience responsiveness, and consequently you get free market research data on what kinds of numbers are interested in any new niche you are exploring focusing on.
 
Great Tips To Optimise Your YouTube Videos

Curiously, no pictures, not even profile pics, are appearing on my pages or communities (or here in my profile) other than a few YouTube stills. "In your circles" is all blank, as is "Have you in circles." Google is broken!!! http://www.google.com/appsstatus#hl=en&v=status shows no problems. Very Curious!
Google Apps Status Dashboard enables users and businesses to monitor the status of individual Google Apps services. Users of Google Apps can now view the status of individual services such as Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Talk, Google Docs, Google Sites and Google Video for businesses. Administrators of Google Apps Premier Edition, Standard Edition, Partner and Education Edition can also view status of the Admin Control Panel.

Education
  • School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA
    Multimedia, 1972 - 1975
    Performance Art (then called "Multimedia"), Electronic Music composition, recording and mixing techniques. Was first non-visual full-time student accepted there in the history of the school after attending as a sneak-in student via passes written by professor Jay Lee Jaroslav to access the synthesizer studio, whom I credit along with Larry Johnson as my greatest influences. Finished with 4th year honors program completed during my third year of attendance there.
  • Salem College, Winston Salem, NC
    2001 - 2002
    A mistake.
  • Winston Salem State University, Winston Salem, NC
    1995 - 1996
    Got me started in computer programming, which I do today on a different level.
  • Forsyth Technical Community College
    Graphic Arts and Imaging Technology, 1999 - 2001

Story
Tagline
You are REALLY in the TRUTH business!
Introduction
I run NCMarketers.com, specializing in effective, relationship-building and education-based small business marketing approaches. I publish training materials and provide one-on-one assistance to help you grow. I will also help you implement measurable direct-response marketing techniques.

I believe that the "brand building" oriented marketing approach we usually see being promoted is a somewhat cruel hoax being pushed to unsuspecting local businesses, desirable to agencies because the results cannot be measured (or because they don't know any better...). Nowadays, your business is the brand, and your honest transparency is what you will be measured and remembered for. I've built video courses, coaching experiences, public training events, and much more. For more on that, go to NCMarketers.com.

I am also a professional web developer, programmer and design implementation (CSS) expert, using either the WordPress or ExpressionEngine Content Management Systems; a Screencasting enthusiast; and an active help-desk team member/volunteer for the CamStudio open-source software project. I also help people produce live TV shows using both the Google Plus Hangouts on Air and YouTube Live Events, both methods leading to recorded programs that can be can shared with later non-live audiences via YouTube. 

Related to the above, I am an enthusiastic promoter of new educational technologies and approaches, and started the iWonder Education interview and panel discussion series on YouTube via Google Hangouts-On-Air, with its associated Google+ page and its own website and blog at iWonderEducation.com. Enthusiastic interviewees and panel guests please apply within!

I host several shows besides that one on topics I enjoy.
