Revive old videos using YouTube’s community features Last week YouTube expanded the rollout of their new Community tab to creators with more than 10,000 subscribers; bringing video sharing, text posts, and polls to eligible channels. Since becoming available, I started to test if a feature like this could bring life to older videos. Spoiler alert: It can. Re-share those videos! My first post reminded my subscribers of a video I published just under two months ago. I chose this video mainly because the subject matter was still fairly fresh in the minds of my audience. Looking at the view chart above, there’s definitely a bit of a […]

Companies need to tactfully interact with each person in a transparent way […]

Office Hours recap – a failed stream On Wednesday, February 8th, we attempted the first Office Hours of 2017. It was set to be a great one, with interesting topics on growth and informative news on YouTube’s latest addition of mobile streaming to the platform. We went live – then it disconnected.

We repeated this pattern two more times before finally launching a successful (or so we thought) stream, in which we discussed each topic in detail and had a blast doing it! Did we think it was odd that no one asked questions? Yes – we sure […]
