'Success does not come overnight': YouTubers go to class to learn secrets of turning online fame into fortune

'Success does not come overnight': YouTubers go to class to learn secrets of turning online fame into fortune | Multimedia Journalism |

Many people see YouTube stars as the real rock stars of today, but only a select few of them have figured out how to get paid like a guitar god.

YouTube is trying to change that, and this week ran its own school of rock for almost famous video creators.

The recently opened YouTube Space in Toronto wrapped up its first set of workshops designed to help YouTubers grow their channels into a successful livelihood.

The workshops were part of the lead-up to Saturday night's YouTube FanFest, where the site's biggest stars like Toronto's Lilly Singh, a.k.a. Superwoman, will perform and meet their fans....

Robin Good's insight:



"Zeeik It" is a new bookmarklet from Zeeik, a video curation app, that allows you to easily collect and save into discrete collections all of the YouTube videos found on Twitter or on most any web page. 

Once collected you can pick the ones you want and easily trim them before saving them into a curated video collection.


Zeeik video collections are a good way to create valuable content that can be embedded in any article or guide and that can be served according to multiple categories and criteria as you can see from this specific example:  ;

(click "Cool Colors" or "Warm Colors").


You can find the new Zeeik It bookmarklet on the top right of the Zeeik home page here: ;


Free to use.

BBC Radio 1's "Head Of Visualization" On How To Get To A Million YouTube Followers

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, January 27, 2014 11:20 PM

David Zax:  '“You’d be hard-pressed to find a young person who asks for an analog radio for Christmas,” admits Joe Harland, with wry British understatement. Harland works for BBC Radio 1 as its “head of visualization." If that sounds like something of an oxymoron for a radio station, well, that’s sort of the point' ...

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, January 28, 2014 5:18 PM

Our brain is the original flight simulator.  Nothing is as powerful as the human brains' ability to visualize and imagine and fill in the storyworld of what we hear.  Years of storytellers have taken us on all kinds of journeys, from Lake Wobegon to War of the Worlds.  Very smart to hear that BBC Radio thinks of listeners as 'viewers.'

How To Brand Your New YouTube Profile | SocialMediaExaminer

How To Brand Your New YouTube Profile | SocialMediaExaminer | Multimedia Journalism |

Robin Good: Not everyone likes YouTube new interface facelift, but what counts, is how effective your YouTube presence is in helping you reach your audience and in be found, linked and discovered by new potential fans.


Casey Zeman at SocialMediaExaminer has some good, illustrated advice, to share.

Here my key takeaways:


"#1: Add Your Custom URLs in the Newly Placed Description Area


#2: Add Overlays to ALL of Your Videos

(Previous YouTube guidelines required you to promote your videos in order to take advantage of YouTube’s self-branded overlays. However, YouTube has changed that requirement. You don’t need to have a running and approved promotion for a specific video to take advantage of overlays.

Now you can simply create the promoted video, pause the campaign and still have the power of the branded overlay.)


#3: Prevent Other Ads from Showing on Your Video"


But there is more.


Informative. 7/10
