Generate your Motivational Calendar 2019 with your Own Events.


A few Years back, we have released a Motivational Calendar Generator.  Past few days I was spending significant Time and Effort to improve this Calendar. Initially, I thought of adding a lot of new features. But after doing more detailed analysis, I had come up with only a few improvements to keep it simple.

Finally, there are 3 key improvements.

1.  Added option to allow the Users to add their own Events. For example, they can add the Birthday of their Family Members or they can add their  Business related events into their custom Calendar to be shared with their Customers and Suppliers.
2.  Become Mobile-friendly. We can use it from Mobile Phones also.
3. The Custom Calendar generated by the User will be saved in Database. That means, they can easily share their Calendar with anyone, and they can view it online at any time. Previously they had to save it as a pdf file to share with others.






Apart from these 3 things, I had updated the Calendar Generator with 2019 Holidays list of India and U.S.

And, now you can click on the Thumbnail images to view the large image easily before generating your Calendar.

Sponsored Post Guidelines



I earn Money by showing Google AdSense Ads on my Websites and Blogs. Previously Google Adsense Ads helped me to earn from my YouTube Channel also.

So, I have decided to allow Sponsored Posts on my Blogs and Websites.


Moreover, a lot of People are using Ad Blockers to avoid seeing AdSense Ads. So, it becomes mandatory to find an alternative to Adsense. That's one more reason for me to take the decision of publishing Sponsored Posts.

The Importance of Hiring a Trusted Managed IT Provider for your Business


Businesses throughout the world are becoming more and more reliant on technology. As many companies shift their approaches to focus on the digital realm, knowledge of the IT world that supports it should be at the forefront. Yet still, many companies haven’t given their IT support services the attention and dedication they deserve, resulting in an untold amount of frustration and revenue crippling time wasting.

The world of technology is expanding at a breakneck pace. Consumers are constantly connected, and with the change in buyer trends comes the need for businesses to meet the technological demand.

Of course, businesses only have so many resources to go around. There’s a finite amount of money to be dispersed amongst employees and only so many hours in a workday. As the need for IT support services within the organization grows, the amount of capable employees dwindles. Because of this, many organizations now hire managed IT support companies in Toronto to provide them with the support and managed IT services needed to run their business effectively.

Despite that, there are some simple steps, which anyone can take to start working out in this session.

Always remember that text marketing can always help you to drive people to shop, visit you online and even engaging with current brand.

What do you think about YouTube's new policy of disabling Ads by saying Duplication/Reused content as Reason?


I am running my YouTube Channel starting from 2009. Even I have published a Book about earning Money from Youtube.


A few months back Monetization got disabled for my Channel by saying "Duplication" as the reason. I had many duplicate videos created using YouTube Editor by reproducing Creative commons videos. I put a lot of efforts to add value to those videos by including subtitle/caption and spend significant time to improve the audio/video quality of old videos. Even I had spent hours of my time to remove unnecessary silence and claps.


Note that I don't have any copyright strikes.


I deleted all those duplicate videos and reapplied for monetization. But it got rejected by saying "Reused content".

Some of those deleted Videos had hundreds of comments that added a lot of value to the Video.

Currently, I have a lot of News videos narrated by me based on the Press release content provided by companies and Universities.

Outsourcing SEO Strategies for Your Digital Marketing Needs


This Article is a Guest Post.

The world we are living in currently is fast-paced and trendy. For companies just starting with a new campaign for a product, a small-scale business venture or an established consumer goods producer, digital marketing is the way to go. The internet is the highway connecting millions of lives to a particular brand or product campaign. Internet users are in truth glued to the World Wide Web for all the 24 hours a day courtesy of high-speed broadband connections and hand-held devices. The advertisement companies have slowly but surely warmed up to the idea of how essential SEO of a website landing page can be for the success of the venture.


As the demand for SEO services continues to raise many firms, organizations and freelancing professionals have cropped up to fill the gap that exists between the demand and the supply of such a technical service. If you are a campaign owner, you now have the option of outsourcing your SEO requirements through various White Label SEO firms. These SEO reseller organizations are the way to go if you want to invest in private label SEO strategizing for your specific requirements.

Things to note

However, as the campaign owner, there is something you must keep in mind. SEO strategies are incredibly tricky to get it just right. SEO isn't all about driving the audience numbers for your product. It also deals with digital content marketing and the ease of access of the landing page and the quality content itself. There the basic demand for communication through which the SEO firm or professional gets instruction about the future steps and the direction of the venture as to the target audience. Invisible websites are akin to junk and viewers will never reach your landing page if the conventional search engines like Google do not link your site at a higher rank while browsing for services. SEO strategizing is indeed for professionals and specialist help is required to increase the rating of the page.

Almost all the Companies or Businesses are using Timesheet for various reasons and in different formats. Some of them are using papers and Pens as their timesheet, some of them will be using spreadsheets, and some of them are using timesheet Software.

Looking for people who are interested to sell our Timesheet script on Commission Basis.


As specified in my Previous post, we had updated our Timesheet script to make it work with latest PHP version and started promoting it.

I have created a page to show the Screenshots of the script and created a video to tell about our Timesheet script, and updated our Timesheet Demo also.

And, I had spend significant amount time and effort to run Google Ads Campaign. But getting positive ROI from Google Ads campaign may be difficult as I set very low price for our Timesheet script. Instead of increasing the price, I am planning to explore various options to sell the script. As part of this plan, I would like to find people who are interested to sell our Timesheet script on
Commission Basis.

So, I posted a question about it in Reddit. And, a Reddit user made below reply.

Updated our Timesheet script as version 4.0 to make it work with latest PHP 7


For many years, we are selling our Timesheet Script which is developed using PHP and MySQL Database.

A lot of our Customers are using this Timesheet script, and we have done various kinds of custom changes for them ranging from simple Date Format change to complete workflow change.

But past few months I was not actively promoting this timesheet as it was using MySQL connection instead of MySQLi.  The latest PHP is not supporting the MySQL connection. So, I wanted to start selling our timesheet script again only after replacing MySQL with MySQLi to avoid any potential issues that can arise when our Script buyers upgrade their PHP version.

Past few days I was spending a significant amount of time and effort to update our script to make it work with the latest PHP.  And, I released this updated script as version 4.0. I tested it with PHP 7.2 and it is working fine, and it is ready for sales.  So, now I am planning to start selling it again.

Promoting Motivational Quotes Book


A few days back I have published a new Motivational Quotes Book. Read my previous post for more details.

I believe this Book is having a Good potential for selling Good. Currently I am promoting this Book through Amazon Ads and Google Ads.

I would like to do more promotion for this Book. I came to know about BookBub promotion. It seems they are  providing PPC option also. I am planning to test that too.
 
 And, I would like to explore more Book promotion options. I welcome any suggestions.

My first Book about Software Testing was selling good without doing any paid promotion. But it was more than 8 years ago. Now it seems everything got changed due to heavy competition.  My previous Book about YouTube earning was NOT selling good, though I believe  it will be good for anyone who is willing to earn money from YouTube. I did the mistake of not promoting it well, though I  tried Facebook Ads, Reddit ads, GoodReads Give Away, LinkedIn Ads and Amazon AMS ads. I stopped all my promotions because of negative ROI.  I don't want to repeat the same mistake with my new book. Now I realized the importance of doing paid promotions effectively. I understand that ROI will become positive only if we do the promotion activities continuously irrespective of the initial negative ROI.

And, I welcome any suggestions for tweaking the Google Ads and Amazon Ads to improve their performance.

I believe this Quotes Book will be more appropriate for giving as Gift in the Holiday season. So, I believe this is the right time for promoting this Book. And, therefore, I would like to spend significant amount of Money for promoting this Book.

Apart from spending Money, I am exploring more ways for doing the promotion.

I already started doing cross promoting this Book through our websites and Apps. And, planning to use our YouTube Channel effectively to give more exposure to this Quotes Book.

Google’s Ever-Changing Algorithm & Tips to Brands on Ways to Optimize Their SEO - Guest Post


This Article is a Guest Post.

In the dynamic SEO scenario, technological innovations are consistently spurring ideas onward. There are multiple things that seem to be evolving in the SEO landscape and the first thing that comes to mind in this connection is voice search. Ever since the introduction of Apple’s Siri, Google’s voice assistant, and Amazon’s Alexa, users are always searching for whatever they require by asking their devices for delivering the required information.

Optimization of Voice Search

You may take, for example, people ask questions like ‘local cafes near me’ and they expect to find Google search results of cafes in their area. Content writers, SEO specialists, business owners, and of course, webmasters must ensure that they are generating content that would be answering these sort of queries while still utilizing the most appropriate and suitable schema markup. Your website must fundamentally include the perfect words for helping search engines to deliver more detailed and accurate results. You must keep in mind that everything could be impacting SEO rankings including headlines and even sub-headlines. You may seek professional assistance from reputed sites such as http://www.tayloright.com/, a reliable review company for identifying the best product in the market.

Mobile First Is the Key

Google is responding and even adapting to the constant evolution of SEO via mobile-first indexing. In this context, Google has already announced that it would be examining the mobile version of a specific website before assessing its desktop version to determine the best way of indexing and ranking the site. Some web designers are in the habit of creating a site without even checking how the site would appear on mobile screens. It is mandatory for business owners and webmasters to make sure that their websites are user-friendly, intuitive, and perfectly mobile-ready. Moreover, mobile site speed would be a vital factor, as far as; mobile-first indexing is concerned. Web pages that generally take some time to load on the mobile device would be suffering from poor rankings on the Google search engine due to the slow loading speed. Previously, Google only considered content and backlinks as the core factors in determining search engine rankings. Currently, Google is happy to use its AI or Artificial Intelligence, RankBrain for determining website rankings based on the number of visitors coming to the site, the number of them leaving the site and the amount of time they stay on the website. Google is also, taking into account the frequency at which a brand is actually mentioned without a backlink. As such, it is likely that you would be seeing brand mentions actually becoming a pivotal factor, as far as, SEO algorithms are concerned.

A Shift in Guest Post Intention

Another vital factor would be a certain shift in the focus and concept of guest posting on the third-party sites. For quite some time, we know that guest posting has actually been an effective and popular way of obtaining more backlinks for improving SEO rankings. However, currently, guest posting is being scrutinized by Google and is not regarded as the best way of gaining backlinks anymore. People are advised that they must insert ‘no follow’ on guest post links. This would be telling Google that they must not count the link and due to this, no SEO credit would be received for any guest post backlinks. The main intention is to encourage people to create guest posts just for writing them. They must not entertain the ulterior motive of manipulating or boosting their SEO rankings.

Conclusion


Since Google is continuously making modifications and trying out novel ways how search results would be appearing, it surely would be quite fascinating to see what all they could be doing from an SEO point of view as the year progresses.

Will Dislikes of YouTube Videos affect the Search Position?



I heard that YouTube algorithms won’t differentiate Likes and Dislikes. They consider both of them as Engagement which is Good for the Video. But, personally I have noticed that my videos which receive many Dislikes are getting affected in terms of both Search Position and Ad Revenue.

Let me tell my understanding about why it is happening like this. Whoever coming to watch the video will stay for more time based on the number of Likes and Dislikes. In case of the video having lots of Likes and very few Dislikes, even if the viewers feel the first few seconds are boring or useless, they will continue watching the video by hoping that the later part will be useful or interesting. It won't happen for the Videos with lots of Dislikes. So, obviously Dislikes hurt the Watch Time which is a critical factor for getting organic traffic from YouTube. In summary, your Dislikes of our YouTube Videos will indirectly influence the search position by affecting the watch time even though YouTube algorithms are not giving importance to Likes or Dislikes.


Moreover if our Video get Likes, then those videos will be automatically included in the favorite playlist of all the people those who liked the videos. It will give more exposure to our Videos, and obviously, the videos will get more Views.

In summary, it is important to get more Likes and avoid Dislikes for our YouTube Videos. And I have realized that we don't have full control over avoiding Dislikes. Our Unique High-Quality Videos will also get Dislikes if the viewers hate the news subject. I already written about it in my previous post about why Facebook is not giving Dislike button.
I had mentioned that below question will rise in minds of Video watchers.

Whether the "Dislike" button in YouTube is available for signalling that the particular video is NOT Good or whether the content of the video is NOT liked by the viewer?

One of my Blog readers made this comment.
The same comment is true of the "Like" button. Maybe you "like" the news in particular or you "like" hearing the news about that person or subject. Or whatever. Your comment has no rational basis.

And, I made below reply.

I agree with your comment. But the core thing is, the reason behind the "Like" is not playing any role. If you are going to watch a video with more number of Likes, you won't care about whether it is because of video quality or because of the news content. I will tend to watch the videos with more Likes irrespective of the reason behind the Likes. But in the case of the "Dislike", the reason plays an important role. I will hesitate to start watching any Videos with more "Dislikes" by assuming that the video content will be poor or fake, but people might have disliked it because of the news itself. I might have watched the video irrespective of the Dislikes if I know this fact (i-e actual reason for the Dislikes)

Share your thoughts and experience through the comments.

I had published  a Book with Title "How to Earn from YouTube Videos?: My Experience with YouTube" to share my experience about earning Money by running  my YouTube Channel for many Years. If you are interested, you can buy it from Amazon.

Important Points to Consider while Choosing Apple’s iPhone X Car Chargers - Guest Post


This Article is a Guest Post.

Charging has become an important aspect of our everyday living thanks to the overwhelming presence and use of mobile devices. Whether you are going for a long drive or simply going to the office, you simply cannot even imagine stepping out of your home without the car charger. Ever since the launch of the cutting-edge iPhone X, we are well aware of the fact that it is accompanied by innovative and novel charging features including wireless charging and fast charging. If you wish to make the most of the fast charging technology, you must understand ways to choose an Apple car charger for iPhone X. You must necessarily respond to a few questions while choosing a car charger for your iPhone X.




The questions that must crop up in your mind while choosing a car charger are the following:

  • Does it offer fast charging?
  • Are there more than a single socket?
  • Is the car charger of the right size suitable for my unique needs?
  • What is the length of the cable I would require?

Fast-Charging Car Charger for iPhone X

Apple has announced that iPhone X has the capability of achieving about 50 percent power charge in just half an hour by using a USB-C to the lightning cable. In case you want to enjoy this superlative speed, you must consider investing a lot in purchasing a USB-C to the lightning cable. Moreover, you must have a compatible charger with USB-C power delivery. You must visit reliable sites and stores for perfect Apple car charger India and all other perfect Apple solutions.

Some Top-Rated Fast-Charging Car Chargers for Apple’s iPhone X

  • Zendure Car Charger: Zendure is truly compatible and fully complements your iPhone X as it has the cutting-edge Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 or QC3.0 for providing you with the fastest ever charge.
  • RAVPower 24 W Car Charger: This is supposed to be a highly reliable and reputed brand for its high-quality products. This is a 24W car charger and is surely one of the best options for your iPhone X. It is known to support Qualcomm’s superior fast-charging standard. Its iSmart 2.0 USB and Type-C USB would be providing a robust combined output of actually 4.8A for simultaneously recharging a couple of devices at incredibly top speed.

Chargers with More than One Single Socket: Several car chargers have been designed with a number of sockets so that you could use it for charging more than a single device simultaneously. These ports would be coming with diverse specifications that could successfully output expedient charging for diverse devices at optimal speeds. Car chargers that boast of multiple ports could actually be shared with friends and family to keep the power off dilemma at bay.

Physical Size: Usually, you would not find much space all around the power port in your car, so it is best to buy a car charger that is small in size.

Cable Length: If you are purchasing a car charger with just one built-in cable meant for the iPhone X, then it is essential to measure its length. Experts would be advising you against buying a car charger that has an integrated cable since it restricts the devices that could be charged and most importantly if the cable is malfunctioning, you would have to replace it at once with a new one.

Some Reliable Products to Choose

Aukey 36W PD Charger: This is a highly affordable and small-sized charger that is just right for charging your iPhone X without any issues whatsoever. It flaunts a couple of ports. One port is meant for the USB-C devices and the other one is meant for the USB-A devices.

It is important to read Motivational Quotes daily to keep our mind with positive thoughts. Inspiring Quotes of Great People have the power of changing our Life in a positive direction.

Testing our Websites and Apps


Past few days, I was spending significant time fixing issues of our Websites and Apps. Especially I updated our Motivational Quotes App and Bible Quotes App, to make them work with the latest Android Devices. Once after updating them in Google Play Store, I came to know that some devices are crashing when receiving the message. So, I have updated them again after fixing the issue. The latest Android Devices are provided with Notification Channel feature. So, I needed to change the firebase library version in the code to fix the issue. I hope now everything is working fine. So, updated these two apps in the Amazon App store also, and I have started running Google Ads Campaigns to promote these Apps. Let me know if you find any issue when using these Apps.


And, I have updated this blog to include AdSense Ads. Previously I was NOT monetizing it actively. Recently I have decided to monetize all our websites and Apps fully. Let me tell the reason behind it. A few days back YouTube disabled monetization feature for my YouTube Channel by saying "Duplication" as the reason. I just got an email from YouTube with Title "Your channel is no longer eligible to monetize. Learn how to reapply". It seems I will be able to reapply for the monetization only after 30 days after deleting Duplicate Videos.
Personally, I believe I am not violating anyone's copyright. Actually, I don't know what I need to do before reapplying with YouTube.
So, I contacted YouTube Partner support by sending below message.

Monetization is disabled for my Channel by saying "Duplication" as the reason.
I am running the channel mostly to give Technology News. I use the press release materials provided by the universities and companies to create videos. Since same press release material is used by many people "Duplication" is unavoidable for the news reporting videos. I believe I am not violating anyone's copyright. And, I don't have any copyright strike or community strike.

So, I don't know which video needs to be deleted. I don't want to delete any random video just for the sake of reapplying for monetization. Because inventors/scientists used to feel happy when their invention is reported in my channel. I don't want to disappoint them by deleting their news video.

In this case, please let me know what I need to do before reapplying for monetization.

If you have disabled monetization by mistake, please enable it again.

For this message, I got the reply from the YouTube Partner Support Team. But their reply message was NOT having any specific information. It was just the standard mail which repeats the same message that I received initially. By the meantime, I got mail (both email & courier) from a law firm (Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati) representing Khan Academy for asking me to remove any Commercial links or ads attached with a SQL Tutorial video which was created with the help of YouTube Video Editor by combining multiple Videos of Khan Academy which they published with permission for reuse. I removed the links in the description immediately after receiving their mail, and I deleted the video itself as I couldn't access monetization options for disabling the ads. More than 1 million people learned SQL from that Video and it got more than 10K Likes and lots of positive comments and interesting/useful discussions. Now it is NOT available. And, I couldn't understand whether these two things (Khan Academy's mail and demonetization) are separate incidents or related things. Anyway, I learned two lessons from these two things. One is, it is not a good practice to put all our efforts into one particular project even if is backed by a company like Google/YouTube. The second lesson is, it is better to promote our own Content even if someone is giving better content with reusable rights. I had spent lots of time and energy to promote the SQL video, by answering SQL related Questions in lots of Forums and Social Media. I had decided to promote the Khan Academy Video than creating my own tutorial video as I thought it was better than mine and it was available with reuse rights.

In short, I can not earn money from my YouTube Channel until they enable monetization again. And therefore I have decided to earn money from my Books, Websites, and Apps.

I enabled Adsense Auto Ads in most of my Websites (e.g This blog, TheQuotes.net website including motivation subdomain and facebook covers, our Forum, online Quiz, RtoZ.org website, learnwebdevelopment.info). After reviewing the performance and effectiveness of these ads on these websites, I will implement them in our other websites also.

Apart from adding Ads, I have done a few other changes (E.g enabling https, making websites more mobile-friendly) also. So, I need to test our websites and Apps from various perspectives. Contact me if you are seeing any issue with our websites or Apps.

YouTubers can Earn more Money by making use of Trending Topics effectively



You may be spending a significant amount of Time and Energy to run your YouTube Channel. You might be putting a lot of Efforts for creating each and every Video in your Channel. You might have spent a lot of Money in buying Equipment and Software required for creating your Videos.  Even you might be paying Money to the Freelancers who help you create your Videos in professional ways. You may be teaching your Skills or sharing your Business Success Secrets freely through your Videos. But, that doesn’t mean that your Channel will get Views. The increasing competition makes it very difficult to get Views even to the best Videos.  So, it is very important to give attention to the Trending Topics.

Let me explain about how the Trending Topics can bring more Visitors to your Video.  First, I will tell about some SEO related Terms so that I can explain it using these Terms easily. Everyday, a lot of People are doing their search on Search Engines like Google and YouTube by typing or speaking Words that are called as Keywords. And, Search Volume is the word used to represent the amount or quantity of searches that occur for a particular keyword or term, often expressed as searches per month. Search Competition is how many Pages/Videos on the internet include that term, thus, the number of Pages/Videos you will be competing against.


In normal days, the Search Volume and Search Competition will be almost constant for any Keyword.  i-e They will be in a Balanced State. In this State, it is difficult for your Video to get lots of Views by competing with existing Videos.
But sometimes, Search Volume will be increased suddenly due to some Events that may be either expected or unexpected.
For example, a lot of people will be searching about a Person who  is getting announced as a Nobel Prize Winner. That means, the Search Volume for the keywords related to that Person will be increased suddenly while the Search Competition is not getting changed much.  You can make use of this opportunity of increased Search Volume to get traffic to your YouTube Channel by uploading Videos related to this Trending Topic.

For making use of the expected Trending, like Sports Events, Political Meetings, Official Product Launch Events, Celebrity Birthdays and Festivals, you have to work in advance by preparing your Videos related to those Topics or Keywords. You need to keep a list of upcoming  planned Events and Festivals, and check your list regularly to create Videos about the Topics or Keywords related to those Events.

For making use of the  unexpected Trending, like any unofficial  Leak of any Product to be released soon, you should follow various News Agencies to get the News immediately,  and  you have to publish the Video immediately. You need to check Google Trends page and Twitter Trending List regularly, almost every Hour.

Moreover, Google and YouTube will give high priority to the New Videos that are related to the Trending Topics. The New Videos will be shown at top of the Search Results even when there were lots of good old Videos available for that Trending Topic. i-e Your New Videos will be treated like a News Article from  the well established News Websites. This is the Key for the success of creating Videos on Trending Topics.  Let me explain the reason why Google and YouTube are behaving like this, by saying an example.  Assume that there was a Heavy Rain in a particular Town.  Someone living in another Town will hear about this news through other  Media like Radio and TV.  He will do the Search on the Google or YouTube by typing the name of the Town with the expectation of seeing more details about the Rain.  Usually, many people will be doing search about any Town before visiting it. So, Obviously Google or YouTube should show the latest Articles or Videos related to the Heavy Rain than any other Good Old Articles or Videos, otherwise people may stop using Google or YouTube in the future. So, they have to behave in this manner. YouTubers can make use of this Trending Topics advantage, for getting more Views to their Videos. And make sure that you use it genuinely. Use it only for the Trending Topics that are related to your YouTube Channel and that are useful or interesting to your Target Audience. And, never try to include the Keywords of Trending Topics into  the Title/Description/Tag of your Videos which are actually not related to the Trending Topic.

I had published  a Book with Title "How to Earn from YouTube Videos?: My Experience with YouTube" to share my experience about earning Money by running  my YouTube Channel for many Years. If you are interested, you can buy it from Amazon. And, if you want me to spend significant time for reviewing your YouTube channel and Business Model, you can book my time and check my previous post to see the Price/Charge details.

Opportunity for YouTubers to increase their Earnings.



A few months back I had published an eBook with Title "How to Earn from YouTube Videos?: My Experience with YouTube" to share my experience about earning Money by running YouTube Channel.

I thought my Book will be useful for the new YouTubers and for the people who want to increase their earnings from their YouTube Channels. So, I spent significant money for running paid campaigns for promoting this Book. I tried Facebook Ads, Reddit ads, GoodReads Give Away, LinkedIn Ads and Amazon AMS ads. But it didn't make much sales. So, I stopped promoting this Book and forgot about it.

Few days back I got a chance to go through the review comments for this Book in GoodReads website. Almost all the reviews are telling the same message. i-e They feel that the content in the Book is informative and useful, but the writing style and Grammar are not Good. It makes sense. Because English is not my primary language and I am not good at writing.

It made me to think about the option of directly working with the YouTubers instead of just sharing my experience through the Book. And, therefore I have decided to do consulting work for offering services like reviewing YouTube Channels, giving suggestions to improve them, implementing suitable monetization strategy and promotion approaches.



I have around 20 years of experience in the IT Industry with various Positions and Roles.  You can check my LinkedIn profile for the details.

So, apart from reviewing the YouTube Channel, I will be able to test  websites/blogs in various perspectives including loading performance, security, SEO, promotions and user experience.

I am successfully running my YouTube Channel for more than 8 years, and I  have answered many Quora Questions about running YouTube Channel.

So, I believe I will be able to help YouTubers to improve their earning potential by reviewing their Channel and Business model.

If you are interested, you can book my time by making payment to my paypal account. I plan to charge $15 USD per Hour. Contact me (rajamanickam.a@gmail.com) to know my paypal details.

I believe it will be an opportunity for the people who are willing to earn money by working from Home. I will be doing it for few channels only as I have very limited time to spend. So, make use of the opportunity by contacting me soon.

People who are planning to start YouTube Channel or own Website can also contact me so that I can guide them by suggesting best strategy to earn money easily by using their Talent/Skills or by selling their Products or Services. I will suggest best business model after doing deep analysis from various perspectives, and I will be able to help them to implement the suggested model till they start earning money.

Share this information to your Friends who may be interested to make use of this Offer.

You may watch this long video or this short Video to know about earning money from YouTube Videos.

 Feel free to ask your Questions through the comments.

My Suggestions for YouTubers

  • Have the Courage to start and run your YouTube Channel irrespective of any obstacles you may face while doing so.
  • Know your Passion and create Videos accordingly.
  • Set your Target Audience, and keep them in your mind while creating as well as promoting your Videos so as to give them relevant content.
  • Work on to integrate your YouTube Channel with your overall Business Model.
  • Give importance to SEO while creating and promoting your Videos, but not more than your Audiences.
  • Upload quality, unique, useful and interesting videos frequently. 
  • Upload attractive and relevant Custom Thumbnail image before publishing your Video.
  • Promote your videos in Social Media like Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, etc only on relevant Groups/People with relevant HashTags or any other value addition.
  • In case you use Paid Campaigns like Google Adwords, Reddit Ads, Facebook Ads, etc,  the campaigns should be targeting only the people who are likely to watch your Videos significant amount of time, otherwise your Video WatchTime will be affected.
  • Don't expect your Channel growth overnight. Though starting YouTube Channel is very simple, running it continuously requires patience and lot of Hard work and dedication.
  • Engage with Your Audience through Comments, Live Sessions and Community Tab.
  • Don't get confused with the Jargons like RPM, CPM, CTR, etc. You will come to understand them easily once you actively involve with your YouTube Channel.
  • Do the Cross promotion using the YouTube Tools like Cards and End Screen properly.
  • Give attention to Metadata, like Title, Description and Tags to make them SEO friendly. But don't dump them with lots of keywords.
  • Never give clickbait title. It will affect your Video Watch time. Low watch time will affect the search rank and suggestion.
  • Arrange your Videos properly in PlayLists and showcase some important playlists in the home page of your YouTube Channel.
  • Collaborate with other related YouTubers.
  • Watch your YouTube analytics report regularly to tune your video creation and promotion activities.
  • Make use of royalty-free resources (e.g Music tracks available in YouTube Audio Library) to improve the Quality of your Videos.
  • Never try to use any copy-righted content, and never hesitate to fight against false copyright claims.
  • Create Videos based on Trending Topics related to your Channel.
  • Understand the Fact that YouTube is not going to pay you based on number of Views or number of Subscribers. Watch Time plays important role in increasing your Earnings. So, Focus on creating interesting/useful content.
  • Add Subtitle/CC to your Videos
  • Use Good Quality Mic and Camera or any other tool required for creating your videos. Use the Tools like Audacity to cancel the noise in your audio. Check my Amazon Influencer Storefront to see my recommended Gadgets for the YouTubers.
  • Never compare your channel with other similar channels . Everyone is having their own way of making money from YouTube.
  • Think  from various perspectives like Brandable, Searchable and Trust factor while choosing your channel name.
  • Don’t think your YouTube Channel as a separate Entity, instead view it as part of a Business Model. Integrate YouTube with your other Business activities.
  • Never depend on Adsense ads on YouTube as your only source of Income. Work on creating alternate revenue streams (e.g Amazon Affiliates, TopBuzz, etc)
  • Never try to use any shortcut method to bring views or subscribers to your Channel.

Don't worry much about video Views or Earnings initially. Just focus on creating high quality and informative videos frequently, and promote them at the relevant websites and groups. Earnings will follow you at the appropriate time. All the Best!!!

My First Vertical Video in My YouTube Channel



YouTube was supporting only the standard 16:9 aspect ratio videos for the long time. Since many people are recording videos using their mobile phones, many videos won't fit into this aspect ratio. So, YouTube used to show black bars on both sides of the video when showing vertical videos.

Recently YouTube has started supporting vertical videos also. In mobile phones the vertical videos can be viewed in full screen.

For testing this Vertical video format, I had uploaded a vertical video which was taken by my mobile phone.

By saying "vertical Video" I mean the video size of 720 x 1280 instead of usual 1280x 720.


The vertical video is looking better in mobile phone. And in desktop, YouTube is showing white bars on both sides of the video.


What is your opinion about Vertical Videos? Do you like Vertical Videos?

Updates about "Quote of the Day" News Letter from TheQuotes.Net


Few years back we have started sending "Quote of the Day" email news letter for the people who are interested to receive Motivational Quotes in their email.
I used php's mail() function for sending these emails using cron job. I followed all the required things for running the News Letter. i-e The News Letter mail will be sent to only the people who confirmed/verified their email id. And, the "Quote of the Day" mails used to have the "unsubscribe" link.

I came to know that the mails were getting delivered to spam folder for the Gmail users, even though I followed all the best practices for sending News Letter email. Most importantly, confirmation/verification emails were also delivered to spam folder. So, lot of people couldn't verify/confirm their email.

I tried various things to fix this issue. I added many header values suggested by many discussion forums, and I tried with PHPmailer also. But nothing helped me to solve this issue.

So, finally I decided to use the third-party News Letter Service "MailChimp" which allows upto 2000 subscribers for FREE. But it is having some shortcomings. Previously, the "Quote of the Day" mail used to be composed automatically using the Quotes and Images stored in our website. I need not do anything to send the Quotes News Letter. But Now I have to manually create the News Letter Campaign content in MailChimp. Anyway, it is having easy-to-use interface. But I am not sure whether I will be doing it daily. And, the MailChimp will be allowing only 12,000 mails per month in the Free Plan. So, I will be reducing the Mailing Frequency. i-e I may not be sending the "Quote of the Day" mail daily in future. And, I will be removing the inactive subscribers.

My Amazon Influencer Page - See Recommended Products and Latest Deals and Offers


Visit my Amazon Influencer Page to see my Recommended Products and the Latest Deals and Offers Provided by Amazon.

I have already added many products into this page. Daily,I am spending significant time to update this list to include the latest Deals and Offers provided by Amazon, and to remove the outdated products. I am adding the products only after doing lot of analysis by going through the Reviews and considering many other factors. Anyway, do your own research before buying the products mentioned in my Amazon Influencer page.

To make use of the Deals/Offers/Discounts provided by Amazon effectively, bookmark my Amazon influencer page and visit it daily to see the latest offers. I believe this page can help you to save significant Money.

And, inform me (rajamanickam.a@gmail.com) if you have any suggestions to make this list more effective. And, let me know if you know any alternate/similar product which is better than the listed product, in terms of Price, Quality, Availability, Delivery and Packing.


Apart from my Amazon Influencer Page, you can check the Gold Box Deals provided by Amazon to get the products at Discounted Price.




In the Year 2009, i-e around 9 Years back, I joined Amazon's Affiliate Program known as Amazon Associates. I added the Affiliate links, Banners, and Widgets in few of our Websites. Even I created Amazon's aStore also. And, I received the first payment as Amazon Gift Card. But, later on I stopped focusing on Amazon Affiliate program, as my Google AdSense earning was much better than the Amazon Associate/Affiliate program. And, I had to spend lot of time in our Software Development related activities.

I came to know that many people are making higher earning by adding affiliate links in addition to Google AdSense. But I hesitated to do this, because of 4 reasons. One is, I expect/assume drop in adsense revenue due to Amazon affiliate links; Second, I don't want to spend much time in adding affiliate links; Third, the difficulties involved in receiving payment from Amazon comparing to Google Adsense which will directly deposit money in my bank account in India. But Amazon used to send me the check payment for my Book Royalties. En-cashing the Amazon check used to take significant time and effort from my side. And, the Amazon.com affiliate program won't work for India users, we need to join Amazon.in affiliates program separately and we have to share the appropriate link according to the Country of the visitor. So, I avoided spending time for adding affiliate links in our websites and YouTube Channel.

Now I have decided to spend my Time and Energy to earn Money from Amazon Associates program. Let me tell the reason why I made this decision.
Few Months back, I had published a Kindle Book with title "How to Earn from YouTube Videos?: My Experience with YouTube". But it didn't make any sales. Few weeks back, I updated this Book content and published Paperback version also. And, I decided to promote this Book, as I thought it will be useful for the new YouTubers. So, I spent significant money for running paid campaigns for promoting this Book. I tried Facebook Ads, Reddit ads, GoodReads GiveAway, LinkedIn Ads and Amazon AMS ads. But it didn't make any sales. And, I got reviews/advice from KDP Forums and GoodReads that it is difficult to sell my Book due to various reasons like, low number of pages, Spell mistakes & Grammar mistakes, poor cover image, and the availability of best similar Books. Personally I feel my Book will be useful for the new YouTubers irrespective of these shortcomings. Anyway, I don't want to waste my Time and Money in promoting this Book which is not making any sales even after spending significant amount of Money for the promotion activities.


So, I stopped/reduced all the promotion activities for the Book. This Book promotion activities made me to think about doing the Amazon Affiliate promotion again. Since I was spending significant amount of Money for Book promotion, I thought of earning Affiliate commission in addition to the Royalty payment for selling my own Book. By going through various Forums and Discussions, I came to know that this practice is allowed by Amazon and many Authors are doing it.

And, payment related issue also got solved as Amazon started supporting Payoneer. So, I decided to focus on Amazon Affiliates/Associates again, at least for my Book promotion. Though I stopped the Book promotion, I decided to continue the Amazon Affiliate promotion activities. Since our YouTube Channel is getting significant number of traffic, my efforts won't go waste this time. Anyway, I am going to do it in limited ways only. I am not going to target all the people. As of now, I plan to use only the Amazon.com, that means I will use it for U.S traffic only, and will do it without affecting AdSense much, i-e I will include the Amazon Affiliate links in few places only.

I started including the Affiliate links in few pages/videos. And, added Amazon's native shopping ads also in few pages. And, I came to know about Amazon's Influencer program. I just applied for it and it got approved instantly to give me this vanity URL in Amazon.


I added few products including my Books. And, I am planning to add more products and Deals/Offers daily. I am exploring various Products and going through Reviews and Price/Deals details so that I recommend best products. Suggest me if you know any better products to be included in this page.
And, if you are Amazon Seller, let me know if you run any Deal/Offer/Discount for your product on Amazon, I will include it in this page if it is suitable for my audience. I am planning to make it as a place for my Readers/Viewers to check daily to find best Offers for the best Products. So, you can bookmark my Amazon Influencer Page, and share it with your Friends who may be interested in it.

Regarding my Book, generally I believe in Never Give Up attitude. So, I will start promoting it again later after improving it further, mostly, after including new chapter about earning money from Amazon Affiliate Program based on my experiences that I am going to get in the coming days.

Conclusion

You can buy this Book How to Earn from YouTube Videos?: My Experience with YouTube from Amazon. It is available in both Kindle version and Paperback version.

Once after reading this Book, please share your review comments. You can contact me for any questions related to running your YouTube Channel. I may not be able to help you with best answer, but I am sure that I can definitely share my experience with you to help you go in the right direction.

If you want be successful in your YouTube Career, you should focus on your core talent/skills to make people Happy either Directly (e.g Dance / Comedy) or Indirectly (e.g Tutorials, Education videos, LifeHacks).

That is the very important thing apart from preparing the Interest List as specified in the Book. Once you start uploading useful videos, you have to promote it at relevant Social Media sites. You should do it to your target audience only. Don't share your video with people who may not be interested in your video. If you do so, your watch time will be affected heavily. Watch Time is the important parameter for getting views organically(Search, Suggestion, Browse) from YouTube. Choosing trending topics will be helpful to get views quickly. But do it for the topics that are relevant to your channel. As explained in the Book, not having quality mic severely affected my Channel. So focus on setting up the things required for your channel properly. Never tempted to copy anyone's video. Do YouTube Live frequently. Check your Analytics regularly. Initially focus on giving valuable content than getting views or earning Money. Cross promote your videos using Cards and End Screens. And remember to set your meta data (Title, Description, Thumbnail image) properly without violating YouTube's policies.

All these things specified in the Book are not much helpful unless you have enough motivation to set proper Goal for your Channel growth, and putting efforts on daily basis to move towards your Goal steadily irrespective of any difficulties you may face. Since I am running our Motivational website TheQuotes.Net for many years, I could understand the power of positive thoughts for achieving our Goals. So, always stay Positive. All the Best!!!

Goodreads GiveAway and Kindle Free Promotion Offer for my Books.


 Recently I have decided to spent significant time in writing Books and promoting them apart from running my YouTube channel. I am planning to write mainly about Emerging Technologies. I am evaluating the potential for making money by writing Books. Though I had published my first book around 8 years back, I haven't taken Book publishing as a money earning approach previously.
Recently I have decided to consider "Book writing" as a Money Earning approach.

So, I am exploring and studying various things about Book promotion by trying them for my existing Books.

I have tried paid ads including LinkedIn ad, Facebook ads and Amazon AMS ads. But they are not helping to make  Book sales.

So, now I am trying Giveaway and Free promotion approaches.

Currently I am running GoodReads GiveAway for giving Kindle version of my Book How to Earn from YouTube Videos?: My Experience with YouTube for FREE to 100 people. This give away will end on February 10. If you are interested you can enter here.

And, I am running Amazon KDP Select's  Kindle Book Free promotion for my other Book "Motivation from TheQuotes.Net - Inspirational Quotes To Get You Motivated Positively" for 2 days. You can freely get this Book from here. This Free Offer will end tomorrow (i-e 1st February PST time).

Kindle Count Down Deal for my Amazon Kindle Book about Earning Money from YouTube. This Offer will end on 29th January 2018



Few months back, I had published an Amazon Kindle Book with Title "How to Earn from YouTube Videos?: My Experience with YouTube" for sharing my knowledge and experience that I gathered in the past 8 years by running my YouTube Channel "QualityPointTech".

I have enrolled this Kindle Book to Amazon Unlimited and KDP Select programs.

KDP Select program allows me to run a Count Down Deal for few days to offer the Kindle Book at discounted price. I am running this Count Down Deal this week. The offer will end on 29th this Month.

During this Offer period, people from US can get this Kindle Book at the discounted price of $0.99.

So, if you are eligible for this Offer, you can make use of it from here.

Everyone needs Money for living a comfortable Life. The Money that you receive as salary for your work is having some limitations. For example, you won't receive salary if you stop doing your work, and your salary won't be increasing drastically. Doing Business will break these limitations. But many Businesses involve lot of Investments and Risks. So, many people are looking for a way to generate passive income without doing much investment. For them, YouTube is a best option.
Running a YouTube channel can help anyone to convert their skills into Money, that too passive Money. YouTube had created many Millionaires, and lot of people are earning significant money from their YouTube Channels.

This Book will be useful for understanding some overview of the ways about earning money from YouTube. People who are interested to work from Home can utilize the opportunity given by YouTube for earning money.

I am running this Offer by hoping that it can bring some reviews for my Book which is currently not having any Reviews and Ratings.



Please note that this book is NOT for telling any secret ways for earning money from YouTube, and it is NOT going to give any tutorial about YouTube. It is just for sharing my understanding and experience with YouTube by running my YouTube Channel "QualityPointTech" for many years.

So, please DON'T buy this book if you expect any secret tips or complete tutorial for Earning Money from YouTube. I am running this Kindle Countdown deal not for increasing the sales of this Book, but primarily for offering Discount price for by blog readers and Channel Subscribers by hoping that they will spend their time for adding Ratings and Reviews for the Book. I will use Amazon's ad program AMS for increasing the Book Sales once after getting Ratings and Reviews from my well-wishers.

And, few days back I had published the paperback version of this book. If you are interested, you can buy from here. But this Discount Offer is NOT applicable to Paper back version. So, I would recommend you to buy the Kindle version with Discount from here.

Few years back we have launched a Motivational Quotes Website TheQuotes.net
We have added lot of motivational Quotes in that website, in various formats including, text, image, facebook covers, Gallery, Calendar, Greetings cards, auto tweet, etc.
