Saturday- Day 14

Activities:

  • Began to work on a cover. I was hoping to get it finished to go out for week 3 but it will have to be uploaded mid week. I realised that it is far more important to make the content to a high standard that I am proud of, rather than releasing things for the sake of trying to boost numbers. I struggled initially with it, but once I got the electricbe on the job it all started coming together. It’s using some sweet ambient guitar on it too.

Results:

  • 357 twitter followers.
  • No page likes or activity on Facebook.
  • Youtube video 1- 2004. Video 2- 1357 views. 10 Subscribers.
  • 7 Patrons.

Summary:

Really sad to lose a youtube subscriber. I think gaining subscribers on youtube is the most important thing to me at the moment deep down, if I am being honest with myself. That could unlock some doors to meet the ultimate goal. The youtube views are increasing and the second video has done more views in its first week which is progress. Still don’t know how to convert these views. Any clues are welcome!

I have had to do less on twitter so as not to break any twitter rules and have my account deleted. I haven’t had any warnings but it would be a nightmare at this stage. I have given up on facebook as I can’t get to grips with the algorithm. Is it better to hit all social media avenues or just concentrate really hard on a select few?
