Video Marketing

Hello WA Family, I hope you are all well and staying safe in these crazy times.

Does anyone know how to upload very large videos to YouTube? I want to upload some videos

are you using the latest version of your browser
and are you a verified you tuber

good luck sorting it
phil

Yes, Phil... I am a verified user and I am using Chrome to upload...

I upload large videos all the time. It sounds like you may need to upgrade your internet. That's what I had to do. You're no longer a leisure internet user. Hahaha.

I have the best internet I can have in Turkey... are you uploading videos larger than 8 GB? My videos are 8 hours and 10 hours

Just thinking with these crazy lockdowns maybe too many people on the internet which is slowing it down...

I had to go and take a look at how big the files are. No. My files aren't 8 GB each. My videos are between 25 min to 1 hr. If you're using the best internet, then the only thing I can suggest is to break the video into part 1, part 2, and so on. I haven't tried uploading a video that long, but breaking it up may help with your audience retention on the video as well as actually getting it to upload.

You may be right that the usage of Youtube may cause upload times to be slower. I haven't personally had a problem with it though. Best wishes on getting your video uploaded.

I have inexpensive internet access and am not seeing that as an issue.

However, many YouTube users have complained about being bumped off YouTube and it is my guess that the servers are becoming overloaded, given that so many of us are home all day now.

Instead, I will be uploading my videos during late evening.

Thats a good idea. I upload straight from Screencastomatic and havent had a problem.

Thanks Trish... I also think the servers are overloaded. I will try uploading in the night and see what happens!

Stay safe in these crazy times!

Thanks Tiffany... Stay Safe!

Social Engagement & Marketing

I have just had my Facebook page unpublised by FB due to violation of terms.

Has this happened to you? If yes what did you do?

I appealed and got the same answer,

Hi Moni, the only thing I can think of here is maybe you have posted an affiliate link, I understand many Social Media platforms are becoming very strict here, they seem to term this as spam.

I got suspended from Google+ for a fortnight for violating their terms, a while back. Trying to find the reason why is near impossible, nobody answers your query.

I put the reason's down to an affiliate link I had posted. Since then I only post web-post links on my Facebook page & Google+ that lead back to my website.

Sorry, I can't help but maybe this is the answer.
Simon.

Hi Simon, hope you are well and having a great day!

Simon, I THINK maybe this is the case as I did put a link to an article on an external site and in that article link there was an affiliate link.

This is my guess after speaking with lots of people.

It's so frustrating when I can't communicate with someone to find out what I did that violated the FB terms.

Anyway, onwards and upwards! :-)

Take care.. have a great Sunday!
Moni

One of the things about Facebook is that we need to be very strategic about how we engage and also we need to refine our messages and how we express them.

The thing about Fan pages is that originally they were designed for entities like businesses, organizations, celebrities, and political figures to represent themselves on Facebook. Unlike a personal Facebook profile, fan pages are visible to everybody on the Internet.

The take-home here is that we always think it is the platform it can be other users, that click that "report this post ", the level of automation makes it easy for folks to click spam and the response from the platform will be automatic.

One of the hardest things about dealing with the larger platforms and this includes G+ is that they are among the worst communicators online, so when we do infringe it can be like getting blood out of a stone finding out the why.

Facebook is under a lot of pressure at this time, to tidy up their ship with all the revelations that have been coming out about how they operate.

So as marketers we need to adapt to how we engage and express, some folks are moving to create Facebook groups that are related to their websites, with a group you have more control over the message and who participates, it is a way to build engagement, just a thought.

If you were linking to your website it should have been fine and the content that you were posting added value no problem, if you were posting raw links in your posts it would only be time before those infringements were penalized.

Just some thoughts, I have had fan pages unpublished in the past, so sympathize with you.

This post may be of interest to you.

Hi Alex, hope you are well and having a great day.

Thank you for your response... I appreciate it.

After reading your response I am thinking MAYBE it was an affiliate link.

Normally, I never put affiliate links and only links to my article, however, there was a very interesting article " How a love of languages supplements a retired teacher's pension" but this was wrapped up with an affiliate link. I found value in the article and thought my followers may also find some value.

Truth is I don't know for sure what I have done that I should not have done and if FB doesn't tell me I will never know.

I like your idea of maybe setting up a group and will consider this.

FB unpublishing my page is not the end of the world and I will continue without wasting any more of my time with this. :-)

Alex, I am curious, what did you do when FB unpublished your pages? Did you just set up another page?

Best wishes
Moni

Thank you for responding, it can be hard when we do not know the reason for sure.
Sometimes it can be a case of backing off, leaving it a little while and then picking up the reins again.

The thing to remember is that Facebook at the end of the day is a business that makes most of its revenue through advertising and they seem to reward folks that advertise with them.

Thanks Alex... stay blessed!

There was a recent purge of pages on Facebook, targeting a very specific kind of activity. What was the topic of your page?

Hi Ivy, thank you for responding.

I think I may have figured it out...

My niche is making money online and I do reviews of online programs.

I share my articles on my FB page to warn people against scams and present legitimate online opportunities.

Recently I wrote a couple of articles on Network Marketing and I think it may be those articles as FB does not like Network Marketing.

The challenge is I can't even delete those articles :-)

That’s interesting... there are certainly many people writing on exactly the same topic, and without issue. I haven’t heard of a page being unpublished due to a one-time transgression, either.

The recent purges have more to do with identifying certain patterns of activity, and identifying clusters of like-behaviours.

You mentioned that you also shared some links on your page just for fun. What kinds of things?

Hi Ivy, hope you are well and having a great day!

My topic for the page is Make Money online and how to avoid scams.

I guess I will never know what I have done that I should not have done so time to move on and as Alex suggested maybe consider setting up a group instead of a page.

With or without FB the show must go on! :-)

Thank you again for taking the time to respond to my question.

Wish you much success!
Moni

Fun links were mainly personal development quotes which I don't think would have caused the page to be unpublished.

Anyway, onwards and upwards! :-)

Take care.. have a great Sunday!
Moni

Moni, howszit my dear brother.

I don't like what FB did to you! Not good. Can you tell me a lil' of what it was about? If it was political "stuff" I heard others who did it have been kicked out.

Anyways Moni I don't care what you said, I don't like it.


frank

Hi Frank, hope you are well and having a great day!
I was just posting my articles and some fun stuff to entertain and educate my followers... nothing controversial

Hi my brother, I'm doing fine, great to hear from you, again.

To me Moni when a company becomes "Judge Judy" and guards what we say to others that just not freedom of speech.

At least I think we still have it here in America.

Hope you FB is "kind" enough to clear it with you.

Take care my brother,

Frank

Because of there kicking people out we don’t post any ads there only our articles. Sorry you were kicked off.
Blessings

Thank you for your response... I just post my articles and other stuff that could of value to my followers.

Would just love to know which terms I have violated!

Are you posting your articles from your website on fb with links if so that may be the problem

I do post my articles to my fan page as do most of the people I know.

I do post other things to entertain and educate my followers. If posting my articles to bring value to my followers is against FB terms then it seems like a waste of time having a fan page.

I just wish someone at FB would just tell what I have done that I am not supposed to do!

Thank you for responding... have a great weekend!

Tell me if you get an answer from FB, bc I was also kicked out yesterday. Not my entire profile, but I cannot comment or share anything at all. ANd I haven't got any answer either...

I got an answer but they don't say which terms I have broken... just "your page remains unpublished due to violations of FB terms"..

I have sent another message and no answer... yet!

Hello, are you are using Disqus for comments? I would love to hear you experience with it.

I have just added the plugin 12 hours ago and still trying to get to grips with

Hey Moni,

Personally, I have left a blog without commenting whenever I am asked to sign in somewhere else just to leave a message.

There are so many other easier ways to protect your website from spammers rather than ask you website visitors to "jump through hoops" just to leave you a message.

However, this is my take on this subject.

Hope this helps you.

Hi Trish, hope you are well and having a great weekend.

I agree with you and I would also leave the site if I have to jump through hoops to leave a comment.

It is less than 24 hours since I added the Disqus plugin and I am still learning the features of Disqus. I believe there is an option to not ask for people to sign in to leave a comment.

At the moment I am having fun just exploring what is possible and what isn't possible with Disqus. I do like the look of the comment area with Disqus and the opportunity to monetize the comments area later down the road.

Thank you for your feedback... I appreciate it!

Take care.. stay blessed!
Moni

The options like Disqus were made available back when spammers could not be stopped any other way... until they got smart and created Disqus accounts to use for... you guessed it... spamming! LOL... seriously.

Thanks for this as it is new to me.

Hello Moni, I'm about to start using Disqus as I recently discovered its power in getting more comments on blog posts often. What it does for your blog is that it helps you capture readers who have left comments on your blog before. It makes them subscribe to the comments on your blog and keeps alerting them whenever another person just leaves a new comment on the one they've left earlier. It really works for naturally getting more comments on your blog.

Israel Olatunji

Thank you Israel, I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question. I too feel in time Disqus can help get more comments on the blog.

Have you by any chance checked out Discord? Stefan mentioned this to me and I was wondering what the difference is between the Discord and Disqus.

Have a great day!
Moni

No not, for chatting with my audience I am using Discord, comes with your own server and you can setup admins and roles.

Many pro's use this system, it is free and pretty good.

But ok if you want to offer the users of Disqus to react on your blogs, it can be useful, question is why, what are your intentions?

Stefan, ToLiNoLi

Hi Stefan, thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

Of course, the intention is for better interaction with the readers and Disqus also offers monetization opportunity through the comment section which I may use later on.

I will check out Discord too and see which better fits my needs.

Have a great day!
Moni

Hi Moni,

Discord is a different tool and service, I am preparing a blog and will post it soon, probably later today. There you can read about it.

I suggest you think of it and when you find the time, to add it to your business concept.

Have a great day too.

Hey WA friends, Is there any way I can add a video gallery to just ONE PAGE on my site?

Hey Moni,
I would suggest the plug-in or Rania suggestion.

Tried and True

Elaine

Thank you Elaine... have a great day!
Moni

I have not used the plugin but it sounds good. https://youtu.be/diMfMliPK6g

I just searched "how to add a video gallery on wordpress" There are other videos on this subject so you can check them out.

Thank you David... I also came across the same plugin while waiting for answers :-).. I am going to try this later... appreciate your response!

Hi Moni
It is very easy.. You can do it by by simply entering the video URLs. It can also display hosted videos on your own website.

However, you should never upload videos to WordPress. Videos are large files and serving them directly may cause issues with your WordPress hosting service.

Thank you Rania. Moni's question helped me to find the answer from you. I "was" thinking of doing a video gallery myself, but I think it might cause problems with wp.

Thank you again!


frank

Thank you Rania...

I am looking at this and not sure if I can create a video gallery like YouTube. I want to EMBED videos on the page.

I have another look or try the plugin.

Thank you again for taking the time to answer... I appreciate it!

Stay blessed!
Moni

Hi Frank... hope you are well buddy!

Yes, thank you Moni I'm doing good!

Hope things are the great with you too!


Take care Moni!

frank

can you not upload the videos to your media section and add them as a gallery?
or if you are talking about youtube videos then what about adding a table and inserting videos into each cell?
try out wpedit plugin for a quick way to add tables to your site.
good luck
phil

Thank you Phil for taking the time to answer the question... I think it will be easier and more aesthetic if use a plugin.

Best wishes
Moni

the above does work - but what you may want to do for responsive operation is to have a still picture link to a larger video size - or a page with a single video embedded
it is using a plugin wpedit - i had to resize the videos 240 by 150 to make 3 fit on a page side by side
when narrowing my browser window the videos all squashed down and would look funny when played - but using an image and opening a page with the video embedded - just tried the share link and it works but jumps over to youtube.
or as you say a dedicated plugin - just tried youtube plugin - you need to get an api key but looks like it will do everything you want without messing around.
