Love that they raised to 1gig limit rules now.
I wont need that much but 100 meg sucked.

2 Instant Community

Yes, some important points were covered, good work PAM. Time is the key, patience is a virtue.

3 Conversionable

I like her comment about Social media being work. This is very well said.
While the spammy approach might be good for short term gain eventually it will catch up.

I quote you Pam:
“It’s actually work. Social media isn’t the quick fix everyone think it is.”

I just find that out not too long ago. You can’t just submit here or there and expect everyone to digg and stumbled you.

This will make the publishing of the latest movies easier …

Good report Pam. You should set up your own blog too.

8 Chris MynMkr

yeah, do you run your own blog?

9 Steven Finch

Yeh, I think you should setup your own blog. But really I think you should be doing something similar to webbalert.com. If you are interesting something like this, please get in touch with me.

Thanks for another quality report Pam. I completely agree on the social media points. I started off looking for the quick fix, and found out that it just isn’t the case. Become a valuable asset to the community is better and will result in long term gains from social media.

1GB on YouTube? I guess some of the pirated movies just wouldn’t fit :)

13 Tom

Very nice job this week Pam! It looks like you are getting more comfortable w/ the camera and your approach was a lot warmer and more inviting than before.

14 Pam

Nope I don’t…yet :)

15 fabione761

good site :-)

16 fabione761

good blog :-)

17 Joe

Pam, go back to beauty school.

1G is a lot space. i guess video is so much of a demand nowadays. but still wonder why web space is so cheap that a lot of people are giving it away.

19 Pam

I like totally would but it was like sooo hard. So I thought I’d try this marketing thing instead cuz’ it’s way easier!

20 Blog Contests

Some good tips, 1GB is a lot too

21 Neon

those pirated movies usually dont last long in youtube anyway.
at least with the 1 GB limit you can upload better quality video.

22 Neon

this is because hard disk is getting cheaper and larger.
better technology, better architecture, better planning, better marketing.

23 Neon

more comfortable in front of camera… it will be better with more friendly smile.

24 Interwebhunt

Storage space is a non existant factor now with the price of hard drives coming in so low. Hosting companies will promise 5gigs and up on standard packages without blinking an eye now. Which in the long run I think should be a good thing because it will allow them hopefully to focus on more customer service interaction.

25 Gecko Tales

Remember when storage space and bandwidth meant a lot more than it does now?

26 John M Weaver

Agree. Great job Pam…keep posting you rock!

27 Neon

storage space doesnt mean much.
it is the bandwidth and the quality of the bandwidth/network.

28 Joeychgo

I concurr. Nothing really replaces dedication. You get so much benefit from being a quality member opposed to being a opportunistic member.

29 FactandFable

That’s a positive step forward at YouTube. As the owner of a video production company, I really hope they continue to work on maintaining the video quality of uploaded material.
