Is your goal to be good at something and do what is required, or is your goal to do more than required and do better than everyone else thought you would? Having the right mindset for your business can be a game changer and is the first step to the right directions.
If you want to make great blog posts, you have to give your reader details. Here are 2 examples:
It was awesome. (What was awesome? A sandwich, vacation, payday, what was awesome?).
My payout that I received today was the highest payout I have ever had on Squidoo. (I identify what I’m talking about, I use a word better than awesome, I explain WHY it is awesome, I tell them who I got the payout from, and I did this in just 1 sentence).
Making these good sentences will allow you to make better blog posts.
That is definitely not true if you have an essay due the next day and all you submit is a picture (without any text). In order for a picture to be worth 1,000 words, there must be text around the picture that explains what the picture represents. A picture can be worth 1,000 words, but a picture needs text to support it.
If you ever use cap locks for any of your blog posts, make sure you don’t use it too much and that what you capitalize is very important and relevant to the post.
*YouTube secret included*
Now that I am taking stop motion Lego animations seriously, I decided to take a look at my YouTube channel. My goal was to find any videos that were doing the best while which videos didn’t work so well. I have almost 5,000 channel views, but one of my YouTube videos about the review of a Lego Set has over 1,000 views alone. The video is only 28 seconds long, but in the past 30 days, viewers have watched the video for a total of 42 minutes combined (even though the video is only 28 seconds long). These statistics come from only 124 views. More than 70% of these viewers are watching the entire video.
What I learned from analyzing my videos:
Short and informative videos are very effective.
I will post more information about this topic once my Lego stop motion animations are produced. Then I will have analytics for videos that entertain others.
So far, I have 5 Lego animations which can be found on my Lego Station blog.
