Thoughts on YouTube New Policy!

Additional Changes to the YouTube Partner Program (YPP) to Better Protect Creators was posted on YouTube Creator Blog on January 16, 2018 that shakes a little bit of my world, but to think through of it, it really doesn’t affect me at all. Growing a YouTube channel is a hard thing to do, maybe it’s not for some people, but for many people it’s almost like a torture if only the purpose of creating a channel is monetization.

People should realize that YouTube is not the only place we can make money. At the beginning, YouTube is a place we can share our valuable videos (don’t matter how you define “valuable”). It’s the spirit of SHARING at first when we come to YouTube.

I remember the first time I try to make a channel on YouTube, my purpose is I want to share something but I also want to make some bucks. A lot of things crossed my minds, but in the end, the only thing I can be comfortable of is to share my gaming experiences. I don’t even know how to arrange a game review, I was just more of “flow with whatever I can think of during my game play”.

I am a shy guy, I don’t want to put my face on videos, not even my voices, but I came across one of YouTube policy state that I can’t make monetization on any of my videos if it has nothing educational or guidance, merely gameplay can’t be monetized. The positive thing is finally I’m able to brought up myself to put my voices on my gameplay, now It’s a natural for me to make videos.

The only thing that I can learn from YouTube is CONFIDENCE. I surely not good enough to get much views, but I manage to challenge myself to do My Impossible. Now, YouTube ask me to get 4000 watching hours and 1000 subscribers. I give up on YouTube monetization, I can’t do it. The point is I am not a full-time YouTuber. I am just someone who upload videos and hope that everybody watch them, like them.

YouTube new policy trigger some thoughts in my head :

  1. They do not want to show ads on small YouTube Channels which really giving no positive result on the advertiser’s side (no clicks, not enough interesting videos that make viewers keep watching until the end –> it affects the possibility of ads getting seen in-between the video)
  2. Their claim to better protect creator is a bulls***. Do they increase payments of ads showing in the “Effective Creators”? or simply make the “Effective Creators” richer? I really doubt that. I think it’s just the way they decrease their cost and  also make better standing in front of their advertiser. It’s a reputation to uphold kind of crap.

Conclusion, if you still love to share whatever videos you have and love to challenge yourself to better present something well, YouTube is one of a good place to learn, but if monetization is your goal, then look around, you might found that the grass is greener on the other side. Or we can support each other by watching their videos.

Who Care If Money is the Root of Evil?

It’s hard to see people you love don’t have anything great on them, while you have so many things on you. They don’t know the technology of the day, trapped in the past and not seeing the future. I view money as something that could put a smile on somebody if you use it right.

So I just purchase some mobile phones for my parents. Boom! They have the future gadget. Now, I have to teach them the power of SWIPE, the definition of APPLICATION, the meaning of INSTALL.

It’s 1 AM already, I’m already in my bed but I still able to hear them talking, debating who is better understanding these new things, I only able to keep smiling to it.

In this case, money is the root of happiness. The same night, earlier hours later, I visit my church teacher and exchanging life views which now totally different from me and her. “Angsle” is the food that makes me able to share, so I give some money to her kid and tell her to run buy us this “angsle” and i don’t expect a change if any from the money I give to her. That surely put a smile on her face, and put one thank you in my share bag.

The next day, I met my elementary school’s friends and talking from A to Z, going to share with them some help, but It’s not easy, they are in trouble and I don’t want to offend them at all by giving some help, so I notice that they have these PS 2, so I challenge them Winning Eleven and bet some money if they can win against me.

Winning Eleven
Winning Eleven

Did I lose? Yes. Did I fake it? Maybe. Maybe it’s just that I’m not used to it, but anyway what matter is they win their way, and I “LOSE” money to them, and it feels great!

This feeling is awesome and you don’t need to have meditation along to give you peace. Share and share more, then you will have peace! {click to tweet}.

I would appreciate your opinion about this matter, so that we can learn from each other better to live this life abundantly!

Thank you.

 

How Lovely They Are!

Training dog is hard work to do but there are few steps to make them understand you. The only thing I knew about dog few years ago is obtain them from one of dog breeder in town, we start with a puppy, take care of them, giving them something to eat, and play with them.

Just looking at how playful they are, really giving me a refreshment, besides they are so lovely when they do stupid things. Who doesn’t love dogs? Me and my boo does.

But of course we avoid wild dog, few years back I have been chasing by a big dog when I am walking down an alley from school. I am young, at my best performance, and a good climber. So when it chased me I run back and try to find a tree (this idea is from African movie when someone chased by a lion LoL). FOUND ONE! But it take 1 hour until it went away.

I better stay there at a tree rather than bitten by this sick wild dog. Few days later, someone killed the dog. It’s bad thing to do, but some people don’t tolerate threat and people don’t have enough information how to handle things like that.

My strategy to train my dog is pretty much simple, but if it’s hard to train your specific dog, it’s maybe the best to take class for that and check this Dog Training Tutor.

dog training tutor.jpg

Kobie has always been a dog man. A native of Australia moved to the United States at age 11, where he worked first as a kennel hand and later as a dog trainer. Over the years he developed and refined what he saw as the most effective methods for dog obedience training. The Dog Training Tutor marks his debut dog training guide.

Make Them Sit
This is the basic step for you to communicate with your dog, so it’s definitely a good one to start with. I usually hold a stick/treat or anything (it doesn’t matter but be sure that it’s the one it put their attention to) close to my dog’s nose, then I move up so his/her head follow my stick and automatically he lower his bottom. Once he in the sit position, I say “SIT” loudly and give him the stick. Then I repeat for few times until he understand this kind of command.

Make Them Come
To do this, I take a collar on my dog, sit down, and say “COME” while me pulling the collar towards me. Then when he go to your side, give him a treat. It’s not easy to do, sometimes, they just go the other way, but after couple of times trying, I manage to do this.

Other than those two commands, there are actually some other difficult commands like make them down, stay, and leave it command. But, as long as my concern I am still happy to get those two command to my dog. I rather leave my boo to teach them other commands since it’s practically hard to do.

I would appreciate your opinion about this matter, so that we can learn from each other better to live this life abundantly!

Thank you.

Making Videos

Google Adsense

Making videos basically the most interesting thing because it’s the best way to share knowledge. You can get money from it but that’s not the point, the point is simply sharing. That’s why, it’s refreshing and fun to do.

It’s not the business that makes it great, it’s the people that makes it great. For different reason, Google and YouTube put a marketing greatness there through AdSense. Adsense itself is great but it’s not that great if they decided to just stop ads shown on website or YouTube just because of invalid clicks or mostly they mean impressions.

That’s not stop there, they make decision that they will never open up how they know that people make invalid clicks. They mostly said that if they reveal that, people will be able to cheat on it. Excuse me, Mother Google, people can cheat on it already! But for someone new on Adsense, it’s just doesn’t make sense. How do we know if it’s not someone in google’s marketing who decided that our website is not getting enough traffic and it’s a waste of their money, so they just “make up” stories to cover their full intention.

We won’t know it. So they will punish people with 30 days trial, if no invalid ads activity, they will re-enable the adsense, but well you are now in their List, so do that again, and you will be disabled permanently.

Google won’t stop at that! If you re-apply adsense again with other account, then Google “recognize” you. You’re done for it!

Google Appeal

Really? Seriously? Appeal on Google? It’s against Great Wall of China! It’s against the GOD of Internet!. So maybe this is why McAfee make Google his personal target. So you will notice that some people turned from Adsense to build their own products and sell it online, just like PewDiePie with his Swedish’s Chair and T-shirts.

Alternative for Adsense

I don’t think that there are really good alternative for Adsense. Either you follow by their rules, and learn from experience or just abandon Adsense and go for other internet marketing products like Amazon and Clickbank, or just build your own online store up and sell the tangible goods.

But as for me, building a website and making videos is fun and the fun goes in the sharing knowledge mode. Well, not everything worth the money, yet Reputation is worth everything. {click to tweet} So, if you keep doing what you are doing even no money in it, it’s not stupidity, it’s a way of life.

There’s a lot of way to make money, it one way doesn’t work, why give up and rejected yourself? There is no fucking way if you knock on a door with people inside for a long time, people will not get irritated and will open the door for you finally, doesn’t matter if they mad, they still open the door.

But if you still to learn more about adsense, this is a good guidance to start with!

Freedom of Speech! Be Careful Not To Get Ban For Life!

I am a small blogger, so it does not makes any much effects if I say whatever I want to say, and people only wondering who the hell is this guy and that’s it, the end of today’s topic.

Well, let’s see how about PewDiePie saying the N word, Donald Trump’s dirty talking about Woman, and Ahok talking about Qur’an. It’s big matter on Credibility, but everyone has a say on that. Ahok accepted the judgement and being jailed, Trump saying sorry in National TV, and PewDiePie saying sorry through his channel.

It’s done. So, where is the freedom of speech? An Indonesian blogger being sued by Facebook and the settlement fee is 6 figures for copyright infringements. That is just unbelievable! Internet is a very dangerous place for people with freedom of speech or even creativity.

“How do I know?” In fact, if we know that some of our actions in Internet is prohibited, we would not want to do that. These Internet Giant Corporation: Facebook, Google, YouTube are making people scared. Many people get ban from YouTube only because they say bad words.

Google managements surely wants to create a good environments for business and people. That’s good but sometimes to plea a deal with google is so much of wasting time.

Here are the lists of YouTube prohibition for ads shorten version (For Full Ver. Click here Youtube Support). Anyway if you don’t know, Google acquire YouTube in 2006.

  • Controversial issues and sensitive events: Video content that features or focuses on sensitive topics or events is generally not eligible for ads. So you can upload those videos in YouTube but you will not able to monetize them.
  • Drugs and dangerous products or substances: Video content that promotes or features the sale, use, or abuse of illegal drugs.
  • Harmful or dangerous acts: Video content that promotes harmful or dangerous acts that result in serious physical, emotional, or psychological injury is not eligible for advertising.
  • Hateful content: Video content that promotes discrimination or disparages or humiliates an individual or group of people on the basis of the individual’s or group’s race, ethnicity etc. is not eligible for advertising.
  • Inappropriate language: Video content that contains frequent uses of strong profanity or vulgarity throughout the video may not be eligible for advertising.
  • Inappropriate use of family entertainment characters: Videos engaged in violent, sexual, vile, or otherwise inappropriate behavior are not eligible for advertising.
  • Incendiary and demeaning: Video content that shames or insults an individual or group may not be eligible for advertising.
  • Sexually suggestive content: Video content that features highly sexualized content, is not eligible for advertising.
  • Violence: Video content where the focal point is on blood, violence, or injury, when presented without additional context, is not eligible for advertising.

If you think those lists only prohibition for ads, you are wrong. It’s the community that Google wants to create. Many people get bans on YouTube.

So, how to get money from it and not getting ban in your passive income path. Check this out!

Dumb and Dumbest Conversations

I am dumb, my friend is the dumbest. It’s difficult to talk to the dumbest woman in the world, said by the dumb. It’s tiring to explain our opinion to someone that has too much heart on everything.

  • Woman : “I am going to your house tonight”(6 PM currently speaking)
  • Man : “Yes, come at 11.59 PM, because I need to do thing first.”
  • Woman : “So you don’t want me to come? It’s ok then, go do your thing!” (she expect to come at 8PM)
  • Man : “WTF did I do? I said I want you to come but give me time first to do my thing”

A couple of times I experience these conversations just to end up fighting on small things. I just don’t understand the logic. Am I dumb or the dumbest? Conversations need two persons, who has good sets of logic, and much better with the same common interests. Sometimes its not.

Communication skills is not something that can be learned in fast learning programmes. It need a lot of practices. You are progressing from simple small talk to a public speaker. A guy, like Peter Drury, he is the best commentator when a team attacking rapidly.

I am not an expert on communication or even have negotiation skills like people from BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit) of Quantico, but it doesn’t need expert to see way through, you can be a manipulator.

I succeed on manipulation using only words to ask someone to do things that I want. It involves understanding someone’s character, their behavior towards things, their habits, their way of thinking and speak.

It’s very simple and everybody can do it. Let’s just take a simple manipulation, if you want to ask someone to fetch you a coffee from Starbucks, what would you say to him/her without alerting any signals of ordering? You can say few things, but try it yourself and tell me about it.

The fact of manipulation root way back before the Starbucks’ coffee scene. You would like to develop a trust between you and your subject, developing a bound, the tighter the bound, the likely it it to manipulate him/her. Man is up for loyalty, and woman is for love.

Through manipulation, your communication will become one way, from you to them. It’s when the magic happens. And if you give them the way not to fight back, the bound will become king and slaves relations, that’s what Charles Manson did back then.

Communication is hard thing to do. You need to see things from their side of view. What they would see of you if you said things. It’s hard when you see a stranger without you doing any background checks first.

It’s even harder if you don’t know their language and their culture. Check below to learn their language!

communication.png

Let’s say in a Job Interview. You meet a completely stranger. Mostly you hear only yourself talking too much to convince them to accept you as an employee, because when you talk, they talk to themselves in their heads. They questioning everything negative about you, so you need to impress them about what you know about them, the company.

Have you run backgrounds checks on the company? Did you find something you can bring up to them about what you found? You are a BAU in this life, either you want or not, because communications run everyday in your life and to get what you want you have to think like them.

If you want someone to buy from you, you have to know what they really wants. Focusing on your products and what you want ( big fat bag of money ) will never cut out. It is them you want to focus at. If you apply the dumb and the dumbest conversations in this, you will end up losing.

Woman in the beginning “expect” to meet Man at 8PM, how would Man know about her expectation? Woman doesn’t talk the obvious, they talk in their heads and it is your job to know that as a man. It doesn’t fair? I does not have to be. But let the dumbest said what they want to say, you are the dumb that need to be smart on it. {click to tweet}

Prostitution Over The Years : REASONS?

Why men hire prostitute? It’s probably the most stupid question if you ask the right men. Men from any status (married? single? widower?) will come to a point that there’s a thought to hire a prostitute.

When they hire a prostitute? (alone? frigid wife? fantasies? social pressures?). Who would they hire? (professional prostitutes? high class prostitutes? street prostitute?). How they hire a prostitute? (through friends? social media? agencies? streets?).

Some reasons men hire prostitute are even simpler than what we assume. These reasons are a denial of common logic, “why i do that, because of this. If this not happening, then I will not do that“. You have a choice of not doing that EVEN if you are having these!. Here they are :

  1. Taste different experiences with other women, especially the HOT ones. What are these experiences?
    • Fantasy : they want to live up their fantasies that can’t be done with their wives, girlfriends or any other women.
    • Caring Experience : well-paid prostitute don’t complain as much as their wives or girlfriends, and with their GFE (girl-friend-experience), prostitute can be more caring than other women, and even they will provide man with the After-Sex bed talk when he can easily talking about secrets to a stranger.
    • Experiment : Addiction at higher level makes someone hunger for experiments with a woman. It can lead to a kinky or even nastier situation that is unthinkable. Maybe, it will lead to, even a beating or … killing.
  2. Opportunities. Going away for business trips or travelling outside the countries, every men’s thought has been tempted to taste local “cuisine”. When there’s opportunity to be alone and without anyone watch, they would go for the temptation.
  3. Simplicity. Call a number, Waiting for “the service” to come, Having “the service”, Payments, and Goodbye. No strings attached.
  4. Woman’s Blindness. “Oh no, you don’t know him like a do”, “He is a good guy”, “He is the love of my life”, “I know who he is exactly, his sacrifice for this relationship”, He Will Never Do That. Some women are blinded with man’s character, and some “good” men prey on that, making it easier to cheat on woman and going with prostitutes.
  5. The Belief that AIDS and other worst disease will never get unto them. How easy men can just ignore the facts that it can happen! It happen, and when the time come, regrets, begging for forgiveness not gonna cut out, rather than just Accept and Move Forward.

These days, social media and internet are side-by-side supports these prostitution, and the arguments always gonna be “We are not responsible for third-party advertisements”. Just look at what happen with backpage.com! They still survive until now. I don’t have super extensive knowledge about Law, but I know about common sense and doing what is right.

The backpage case has been in years, and they always hide under Section 230, “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider“.

Prostitution itself is big, but child-trafficking? It’s unthinkable. So, if a porn website put an underage porn content in their website, it’s illegal, but what backpage doing is not. I have to be a rebellion on this, Law was made to be broken. Lex iniusta lex non est — St. Augustine. In the end, I think law is above humanity. {click to tweet}

Sometimes, Governments are afraid to make a move to organizations. They have too many reasons why not doing the right things in the first place. They have power, yet they are powerless or choose to be powerless, hiding under their silence and pretending things doesn’t happen.

Things happen, and it happen with children. Is it not enough to make a move? To straighten things up?

But more look at it, parents also have significant part on the growing of prostitution. Divorce, Broken Family, Fail Marriage has become the undeniable factor for increasing in prostitution among child. So, my message to all parents, GET YOUR MARRIAGE IN PLACE! Listen to Amy Waterman if you need so!

Costs to Get Recognized Out There?!

How did people recognized you as a “someone”? Yes, you introduce yourself to the society. Even you can get a company specialized in Personal Branding, Corporate Branding, Product Branding. The point is, make contact with everyone out there, out of your comfort zone.

Being a back stage people for long is making someone tremendously uneasy to get on a stage. It’s like being nude in front of people for the first time. It makes you nervous, pumps up your adrenaline, and might makes you lose your consciousness for a while. But the fact is, back office people don’t like to be up front, yet want to be famous. {click to tweet}

YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter is in the business of making people famous or just getting recognized by people around the world.

A Viral Video on YouTube cost you from 1 million views to unlimited views. It does make you being recognized, and even subscribe to your channel. Promoting yourself in YouTube cost you around $8 to get 670 Ads Impression and 1,400 views. Let’s say we want to get 30 million views to be able to get $40,000, it cost you $172,000.

Is it worth to promote yourself through YouTube? Maybe.

A thousands likes on Facebook will cost you higher of the YouTube promotion. For $20 you can reach 57,000 people (including organic and paid reach), and max reach that Facebook can estimate is >$60,000 will be able to reach 8,999,999 people. And then, it means, to reach 30 million people to get 1 view only is gonna cost you $200,000.

Is it worth to promote yourself through Facebook? Maybe. Or even GETTING PAID to use Facebook?

social media.png

Rain of Impression and Clicks on Twitter even cost you higher than the previous promotions. For $26, you will be able to get 8,400 impression and 24 click engagements, and the max promotion per 1 ads in Twitter is $2,620 to get 324,000 impression and 933 engagements. So, to get 30 million people actually saw your promotion (impression), its gonna cost you roughly around $242,170.

Is it worth to promote yourself through Twitter? Maybe.

I guess, we will not be able to use any promotions that cheaper enough to get maximum results. Not considering that all the views may not subscribe to your channel, all the likes will not sign up to your page, and all the impressions not all actually click the link.

But, It doesn’t have to be the way. Using the media to promote yourself is just effective enough as you introduce yourself to the society. Still, you will be recognized by people out there.

I think that’s the point of social media promotions.

The Seven Deadly Sins, a Complete Nonsense!!

How many times I have heard these words over and over again? It’s a complete nonsense, even not practical among religious people unless you are a God. Not to “fall” into this category is pretty much impossible.

Here are the lists :

  • Lust, have a very strong sexual desire for someone. The problem only arise regarding to “someone”. If you are have legal right over “someone”, then is it a sin? Anyway, in any situation if you don’ work on it, you will stay virgin for the rest of your life anyway, so up to you.
  • Gluttony, habitual greed or excess in eating. Wow, that’s pretty much every fat guys. I have seen fat priests too much these days. See, it’s not even practical to the religious group too. In any case, it’s just … it’s not much, its just variation … someone might just need to taste some of that and some of this.
  • Greed, intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food. If there’s simply only a dictator or anarchy, which of them you want to choose? Tell me simple things, when you are on deadlines, and your family sicks, did you go to them right away, leaving your jobs? Nope? Then, you are under this category.
  • Laziness, the quality of being unwilling to work or use energy; idleness. It’s a quality and not even a sin for just being relax and doesn’t want to work. It only leads to consequences … It’s only deadly as letting a boulder crushes you, simply a suicide.
  • Wrath, extreme anger. Do you kill people in this state? I doubt it. People can get too much anger with no reason.
  • Envy, a feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by someone else’s possessions, qualities, or luck. Why not? Why I can’T envy to someone else? What can I do even if I envy about them? Resentful doesn’t lead to hurting someone else directly. If not, then too many people died of this.
  • Pride, a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired. LoL, it’s just getting too much at this point. I don’t even care to defend my point.

We, all, are qualified to HELL based on these lists. I always comes up with simple thought : live a simple life, do good deeds as you can do, do no evil as you can restrain, and all of those list is just a complete nonsense that nobody will ever gonna think again.

In real life this is how the lists are interpreted :

  • Lust –> I saw someone, and I rape her (not many, if no one do that)
  • Gluttony –> I saw food, and I eat until my stomach exploded (enough is enough, just exercise to walk out of this “sin”)
  • Greed –> I work so hard and my wife is taking care of our children (normally people doesn’t neglected his own children, it’s just managing time to satisfy both jobs and family)
  • Laziness –> I resign and It solve the problem.
  • Wrath –> I throw out and break everything. Well in the end, you have to pay the damage. Simply get out of the place would be wise when you are in anger.
  • Envy –> I’m so envy I could hurt them. Then, work your way up! But of course it’s just doesn’t work if you are lazy.
  • Pride –> Simply proud of what you have done, all you achievements in life, just doesn’t count as a f” sin. I just don’t get the idea of it

Life should not be contained in dogma or paradigm or concept that useless and makes people unhappy living their life.

If Sins are All that Bad, then We are Officially Helled. {click to tweet}

Or If you are more Spiritualist rather than a Religious one, this might interest you to understand how things work and what your life’s purpose is.
