Ranking Your Videos and Getting Huge Results Without Backlinks?

I’m not going to hide the truth. YouTube marketing and the process to ranking videos is starting to change.

Back when I first got started with YouTube we could upload any video and get it to rank on page 1 quicker than its taking me to write this email.

That has obviously changed. It’s still easy, however, those shortcut technique don’t work anymore.

I’m in the business of selling ice cubes to people who live in Antarctica. Will video marketing work for my business?

This is one of the most popular questions I get asked and as long as your business offers something people ACTUALLY want or need then YES it will work for you!

Oh and if you own a business that sells ice cubes to people who live in Antarctica it may be time to look for a new product to sell. Sorry to break it to you but you might be in a terrible business.

I was a little surprised

Im Back! YouTube Reinstated My Account After The Appeal!

It’s true YouTube and I made up! In under 24 hours of writing my blog post I was able to get my account reinstated and all flags removed off my videos! This whole experience sent me through a wide range of emotions but I am glad I went through it and came out on top! In today’s post I am I will cover everything from why my account REALLY got flagged and suspended, how I got it back to normal, my thoughts about YouTube and their policies, and what to do if this happens to you. So let’s jump into it!

UPDATE – I got my account back, here’s the update!

It’s a gut wrenching feeling when you see a years worth of hard work thrown right out the window and what makes it worse is that is was done by your best friend. Yes, YouTube is my businesses best friend and we were getting along great! Together we had gained over 4,000 awesome subscribers, just about 300,000 views and we were proud to be teaching others how to grow their business using YouTube ethically. I emphasis ethically because there are a lot of people looking to make a quick buck and trick others into scams, buying thousand of fake views, filling YouTube with spam and harassing others. Not only was I against all that, but I strongly encouraged others to use YouTube ethically and stay within their guidelines and rules. In fact, in one of my last videos titled “How To Get More Views On YouTube – Top 9 Techniques”, I gave 9 ethical ways to get more views and directly told people not to buy views. As you can see, YouTube and I got along great, we had a great respect for one another, and quite frankly…we loved each other (don’t tell my wife). In today’s post I am going to tell you the story of how it all fell apart in 72 hours.
