  38. 38. Words from the Wise<br />Phillip DeFranco- “sXePhil”<br />“Try to not become the robot it pushes you to [be].”<br />“It’s about balance.”<br />“Have FUN with it!”<br />Michael Buckley- “WhatTheBuck”<br />If you make videos, don’t let the praise go to your head, and don’t let the mean things go to your heart.”<br />Don’t forget to utilize your YouTube Insight.<br />Be aware of your audience.<br />Think twice before using “inside jokes.” It may be someone’s first time to watch your videos.<br />Shawn Ahmed- “Uncultured”<br />It’s not always about getting people to donate money<br />Just get involved!<br />
  39. 39. Words from the Wise<br />ZeFrank<br />The connection between the creator and the audience is what separates new and traditional media.<br />Every community online is a “network.” Each one is different with its own shape, taste, and feel.<br />Once you have identified your network, you must examine its “rules of participation.” (ex: What thumbnail will get you the most views?)<br />“We strive to feel and be felt. But connecting with people isn’t easy, both in virtual life and in the physical life.”<br />“Authenticity is hard work, and might not be as catchy.”<br />
  40. 40. Words from the Wise<br />Professional Panel of Ben & Rafi Fine (“TheFineBros”), Dane Boedigheimer (“DaneBoe”), Ben Relles (“BarelyPolitical”), & James & Tyler McFadden (“GoPotato”)<br />It may be more time consuming to produce professional content, BUT that’s what you need to stand out from the crowd.<br />Balance between the projects that take a while versus those you can produce quickly.<br />Producing professional content is worth it because it has the opportunity for licensing (whereas lower quality won’t even be considered as it wouldn’t cut it on TV or DVD).<br />Collaboration isn’t something just for “vloggers.”<br />It’s hard to “play the game” professionally.<br />Don’t forget that you can engage with your audience OUTSIDE of YouTube.<br />Make sure you have a TOPIC.<br />Note that the business model for online video advertising is still evolving.<br />
  41. 41. Words from the Wise<br />Greg Benson – “MediocreFilms” and “TheGuild”<br />DIVERSIFICATION! (Rev Share, Selling rights, Licensing, product placement & branding)<br />Transparency is important.<br />
