Breaking the 2 Million View Threshold

As of 12/9/11, 1:18pm EST, the lifetime views for the following outlets are as follows,

  • The21Convention.com*
    • 922,907
  • TheDreamLounge.net
    • 314,575
  • Youtube.com/under21convention07
    • 934,376

Total content views from all three channels,

2, 171, 858

 *Does not include traffic from discussion forums, or the previous domain, under21convention.com.

Many of the Youtube views are overlaps from embeds on The21Convention.com, but not nearly as many as some may think, having only used Youtube as the default hosting platform on the website since the early Spring of 2011.

All in all, pretty sweet. And the recipe I currently use to release a video is even more sweet, with long range benefits abound. It combines all three outlets, in ways that are obvious to the viewer as well as not so obvious, plus social media, newsletters, and whatever the individual speakers decide to do for promotion on their end (varies widely).

Of course, this was all possible at a much earlier point in time. I sometimes kick myself for not getting the hang of this sooner. Had I, I would be a very rich man right now, and subsequently, much more of a financial threat to the world. On the flip side, I am confident that I’ve found a distribution and revenue formula that scales really, really well. The real challenge is no longer in video, but in packing out the live events.

You’d think with 2 million views under your belt that would be easy, but alas, that would only be true with a solid history of e-mail collection, as well as a strong understanding of sales.

    You will absolutely become a huge financial threat in the next few years, everything websitewise and release schedule wise is finally coming together. As I’ve stated elsewhere, I think one area where I see potential is transcibing the speeches and selling them as digital or physical books. That I would definitely buy.

    I see you finally in the next few years reaching the financial success you deserve, given the output of value you’re producing with these conventions and videos. It’s inspiring to see that happening, even if it’s to someone else :).

    On a sidenote, what’s with the “Cassava Fertility” and “Cassava for Twins” links in the sidebar, did the site get hacked?

      Thanks Matt. It means a lot to me coming from you, as an individual, and as one of the original attendees. I agree on the transcriptions, especially after the video/audio download success. There is an entirely new 21C store in the works. Soon as I figure out how to have the videos accurately transcribed, I’ll sell the pdfs on there for 99 cents.

      Thanks on the kind words once again. It’s still a struggle, even today, but I see a light at the end of the tunnel as well.

      As for the cassava stuff, ha, no hacking. Was wondering when someone would catch that. They are links to bump the SEO of a site I have an interest in seeing at the top of google (not mine, but a friends).
