Just an Idea.
Hello All I put this in other since well, it's more less going to be referring to a lot and in general things but I want to write this to maybe help this community really shine and become successful doing what they enjoy and or love! ^_^
so with that said in mind I am of course new but I took a tiny 7hours to run though a lot of the comments and threads and this tiny messaging forum, Now what I see and saw were classic in terms of watching a potentially good business crash and burn and (poof) away like dust, this happens a lot (mainly when it comes to things such as game making, bands, and mainly a lot of other things out there. You see some view this entirely wrong and I'd like to give my imput why.
As I hear that a lot of people want this and that and monetize this and partner that your thinking incorrectly right there for the simplest of reasons as this, a lot of ya'll fail to understand that this is (in a sense a collaborative and group effort job! some seem to start streaming and fail to even understand business stuctures or even simple terminology!
what that's saying is that 1. your an easy target for a start up company to take advantage of like sating things like :discount t shirts" or whatever (add stupid discounted item here) and you then feel your making progress... well your not!
your basically making that other company money while you get a couple views or a few bits of pocket change! I can tell you this I know and can do B2B business whia is (Business to business) meaning I buy straight from the manufacturer, not a wholesaler not a marketing store... the place that's making it... I simply use my brain and get a lot of people to get to gether who all want the same thing or item, I make a website and sell it at a price that undercuts the competition within reason (because if its to cheap people think its cheap... so you gotta be reasonable and for all sake say the going cost is $50 and you see a few hugher and lower then you see someone selling at $10 for the same item... what are you gonna think? exactly... which is why say you mark it down enough to 40-42$ that's a reasonably and in all sense a wise choice since the buyer would easily feel that they are just getting hr better site and are thus clever and they are honestly! always shop around~ back to the subject of making money and working together~ heres my approach to this along with a growing and huge list of friends and groups and always growing! I am usually the man who like and for all reasoning avoided the spotlight since I was always up to no good. But things changed life went on and i use my mind and skillset to make the world a better place.
that said it breaks my heart how soooo many people are so eager to grow and stream and make all these videos and yet they forget their friends and the people they had around them and most of the time are sooooo busy don't do much more then announce a new video where they basically look and sound like egoist and selfish.
I feel I can say that because I have helped a very decent number of youtubers in the past as well as businesses and so on become wealthy and most changed and completely forget everyone but maybe 1 or 3 people just to keep a look of "I talk to my community and followers" type of persona... (that's how it looks to me) but selfishness!
that's a problem and bad habit~ why?
well most are here to either have fun or have fun and make money or ehatever! but its like a tunnel vision it seems because its as if they forgot or have no comprehension exactly HOW big the internet is! much less how to use it and how they are being taken advantage of. but we can save that type of talk for somewhere else.
to the point!
look around fellows see and notice that we have a lot of people all doing the same thing! STREAMING!
help each other!
where one person is good at editing but game play sucks, and a good gamer never loses, yet couldn't edit if ones life depended on it, Why not eat a little of that selfish pride and glory hogging and simply work together to make something truly great!?
this mean people neeed to learn to market themselves or what they are doing and reaching a biger audience, such as making blogs and all that but what about the forums or what of the newbiew? just because someone is new to streaming doesn't mean they don't know how to write an operating systems or create a Search engine! Always try and grow off one another and save money by not trying to charge each other for shoutouts and mentions! Cmon get real people yall are acting like corrupt power hungry hogs, the people who should be spending the mnoney is the people who buy whatever it is you promote or "cAall to action as its said" meaning that your streaming and videos have a purpose, a home, make your work websites don't give up all your freedom by using hundreds of services, all its hurting is you! because while you work and work and do all this and that your still driving the Honda while the one in charge or offering the service has the Bugatti.... so think just a little, save money, help one another and have a cause or find your talent in all this~ Shine and rise together! "whats the point of making millions if your all alone with no one to enjoy it with?" \/Hope this maybe made some impact or sense. at least i can tell myself I tried to help others :)
