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.
