What Happened To BTS? 😮🤫😱

What Happened To BTS? 😮🤫😱

Where is BTS now? The rise and fall of BTS was fast and huge. From south korean mega band to world wide sensation, BTS took over the world. But with military service looming, is this the end of BTS? #bts #btsarmy #whathappenedto #wherearetheynow #riseandfall BTS, also known as Bangtan Sonyeondan, or the Bangtan Boys, emerged from Big Hit Entertainment in South Korea in 2013. Comprising of seven members - RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, the group redefined K-pop, crossing boundaries with their powerful lyrics, innovative music style, and intense performances. Their raw discussions on socio-cultural issues set them apart, resonating with the youth worldwide, leading to an immense global fanbase known as 'ARMY.' BTS quickly gained popularity in South Korea with their debut album "2 Cool 4 Skool." Their breakthrough internationally came with their second full album, "Wings," in 2016, marking their place on Billboard 200. The group achieved an unprecedented level of global fame, breaking numerous records. Their album "Love Yourself: Tear" (2018) debuted at number one on Billboard 200, a first for any Korean act. The group’s rise reached new heights in 2020 when they released their single "Dynamite," which became their first song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Their influence extended beyond music, impacting fashion, language learning, and tourism, and advocating for mental health awareness and youth empowerment. However, around 2023, their activities began to slow down. Members began pursuing individual projects, exploring solo music careers, and focusing on personal lives, following the South Korean tradition of mandatory military service. Their gradual withdrawal from group activities marked the beginning of the end of an era, with their last album as a complete group, marking the pinnacle of their illustrious journey. Despite the hiatus, BTS' legacy continues to reverberate through global music, breaking cultural barriers, leaving a lasting impact on millions of fans. Their story, a testament to hard work, resilience, and the power of music, sets a precedent for future artists worldwide. Their fall from active music-making is viewed more as a graceful bow out than a tragic collapse, given their immeasurable contributions and influence.

What Happened To The Island Boys? 😮🤫😱

What Happened To The Island Boys? 😮🤫😱

The Island Boys kissing on social media? What happened to the island boys, where are the island boys now and what led to this only fans baiting island boys incest? Today we look at the rise and fall of the island boys and their falls from grace. #theislandboys #whathappenedto #wherearetheynow #riseandfall The Island Boys, comprising fraternal twins, Alex and Franky Venegas, initially burst into the limelight through their viral videos on the social media platform TikTok, quickly amassing a vast following due to their unique looks and lifestyle. Known for their tattoo-clad bodies and pineapple-styled hair, the twins captured the attention of netizens around the globe. Hailing from West Palm Beach, Florida, the Island Boys leveraged their newfound popularity to venture into the music industry. They released their debut single, "Island Boys," and frequently shared snippets of their music, often freestyling, on their social media profiles. Despite criticism and controversy, their raw, unfiltered style was a significant factor in their rise to fame, garnering them a dedicated fan base. Their online presence was both their strength and their Achilles' heel. They often found themselves embroiled in public feuds and controversies, which sometimes outshone their musical endeavors. Nevertheless, they leveraged these incidents, transforming them into opportunities to increase their online engagement and visibility. However, as time went by, their novelty began to wear off. The controversies and criticisms began to outweigh their popularity, and their music career started to flounder. As the social media landscape is notoriously fickle, their star began to fade as quickly as it had risen. Despite their rapid rise and equally swift decline, the Island Boys left a distinct imprint on the landscape of internet celebrity culture. Their story serves as a reminder of the transient nature of internet fame and the volatile balance between popularity and controversy. While their career trajectory was short-lived, their impact on digital culture, for better or worse, remains undeniable.

4 Hours Of Non Stop YouTube Tips - The Ultimate Guide To Starting and Growing A YouTube Channel

Need help to get started on YouTube? Here is 4ish hours of tips in one giant podcast video

Oh! and here are 10 top tips to get you started today...


  1. Identify your niche: Before starting a YouTube channel, you need to identify your niche or area of expertise. This can be anything from cooking, fashion, beauty, technology, gaming, or any other topic you're passionate about. The more specific your niche, the easier it will be to target your audience and grow your channel.
  2. Research your competition: Once you have identified your niche, you need to research your competition. Look at other channels that are covering similar topics and analyze their content, engagement, and subscriber numbers. This will help you understand what works and what doesn't in your niche, and will give you ideas on how to differentiate your content.
  3. Develop a content strategy: Based on your research, develop a content strategy for your channel. Plan out your videos and create a content calendar to ensure that you are consistent with your posting schedule. Try to create evergreen content that will remain relevant for a long time, and make sure your videos are high-quality and engaging.
  4. Optimize your channel: To make your channel more discoverable, you need to optimize it for search. Use relevant keywords in your video titles, descriptions, and tags, and make sure your channel art and profile picture are eye-catching and professional-looking.
  5. Promote your channel: Once you have uploaded your videos, you need to promote your channel to get more views and subscribers. Share your videos on social media, collaborate with other YouTubers in your niche, and engage with your viewers by responding to comments and messages.
  6. Engage with your audience: One of the key factors in building a successful YouTube channel is engaging with your audience. Respond to comments, ask for feedback, and listen to your viewers' suggestions. This will not only help you build a loyal community, but also give you ideas for future content.
  7. Monetize your channel: Once you have grown your channel and built a substantial audience, you can start monetizing your content. You can do this through ads, sponsorships, merchandise sales, and other revenue streams.
  8. Stay up-to-date with YouTube policies: To avoid any issues with YouTube, make sure you are familiar with their policies and guidelines. Keep your content appropriate and respectful, and follow their rules for monetization, copyright, and community standards.
  9. Keep learning and evolving: YouTube is a constantly evolving platform, so it's important to keep learning and evolving. Stay up-to-date with new trends and features, and experiment with new content formats to keep your channel fresh and engaging.
  10. Be patient and persistent: Building a successful YouTube channel takes time and effort, so be patient and persistent. Don't get discouraged by slow growth or negative feedback, and keep working hard to achieve your goals. With dedication and perseverance, you can achieve success on YouTube.

What YouTube Channels with Over 1,000 Subscribers Have In Common (ep 087)

What YouTube Channels with Over 1,000 Subscribers Have In Common (ep 087)

In this episode of TubeTalk, we chat with Alan Spicer, YouTube consultant and blogger, about gaining 1,000 subscribers and beyond. His YouTube growth channel, Alan Spicer, has 34,000 subscribers. He also has thousands of subscribers on other YouTube channels, and books clients on his website, alanspicer.com

Alan has reviewed lots of channels and has noticed a pattern with successful creators. Typically, channels with over 1,000 subscribers have three things in common.

1. The Content Is Hyperfocused and Entertaining

There are two ways to start a successful YouTube channel. The first option is making focused content that caters to one audience. But if you don’t know what your niche should be, you can explore different topics to see what gets more views. Be warned, though: The results for this option are unpredictable. You’re letting the numbers decide what your niche should be, even if you aren’t passionate about the topic. That’s why we recommend option one – finding a topic you love and sticking to it.

Is your YouTube niche worth pursuing? Ask yourself three questions to find out:

Can I talk about this topic for hours?

Am I passionate about it?

Are video ideas coming to me effortlessly?

If your answer to all three questions is “yes,” you have a niche worth exploring. Whether that’s cooking, baseball highlights, makeup, or something else, embrace your newfound topic!

Narrowing your focus is the fastest way to get 1,000 subscribers on YouTube. The deeper you dive into a subject, the better your chances of attracting like-minded viewers. If you’re a Minecraft creator, for example, viewers will subscribe to watch hundreds of gaming tutorials.

Making how-to content is a sure-fire way to stand out on YouTube. But don’t forget to be informative and entertaining. Spicer sees this formula all the time as a YouTube consultant – and it works.

“You can still be educational and funny,” Spicer says. “[A fencing company] was making content about ‘how to’ this and ‘how to’ that, which was great. But then they made a video that was all about a specific building material…. It’s a nice time-lapse thing, and it’s entertaining. But it still was within their focus of them telling us how to put up that fence and the specific materials you need to use.”

Of course, the video went viral. The fencing company got views from their audience and people who enjoyed the time-lapse video.


2. The Creator Is an Expert – or Passionate About Becoming One

Did you know it takes some creators years to reach 1,000 YouTube subscribers? During that time, they post dozens of videos, if not hundreds.

That’s why passion is invaluable on YouTube. If you aren’t excited about your niche, it’s hard to keep going with little to no views and subscribers. Chances are, you will lose motivation.

7 BEST SIDE HUSTLES for YouTubers (ep 082)

Best side hustles for YouTubers looking to make a little extra money on the side with their cameras or skills that already use making videos as YouTubers. Editing, Blogging, Photography and other skills you use daily but didn't think about using to make money from.

HIRE ME FOR COACHING = https://alanspicer.com/contact

Here are 7 side hustle ideas 2021 to help you make money online, from home and even as a teenager or student. A side hustle is any type of employment undertaken in addition to one’s full-time job. A side hustle is generally freelance or piecework in nature, providing a supplemental income. Side hustles are often things a person is passionate about, rather day a typical day job worked in order to make ends meet. What is a side hustle? 

A side hustle is not the same as a part-time job. While a part-time job still entails someone else (your employer) calling most of the shots (including hours worked and what you’ll be paid), a side hustle gives you the freedom to decide how much you want to work and earn.

With financial security a problem for nearly half of Americans, side hustles prove to be a viable option for many people working to get out of debt or testing the entrepreneurial waters.

A VTuber—or Virtual YouTuber—is a YouTuber that uses a digital avatar as their main onscreen persona, often using motion tracking software to directly translate their movements onto their digital avatar. This allows the VTuber to film themselves naturally as any regular YouTuber would, while still using the digital persona they have created.

How I Made 1 Month Of Content in 1 Day (ep 072)

How I Made 1 Month Of Content in 1 Day (ep 072)

I made 1 months worth of youtube videos in 1 day with bulk recording. Bulk recording youtube videos can be a great way to get ahead of your workload, remove stress from up coming uploads and plan consistency into your content long term.


I regularly bulk record my videos for youtube. This gives me the chance to plan 5-10 videos topics and take advantage of setting up my filming location just once. I may have a dedicated office now but in the past I would need to set up my camera, lights, and plan my videos a head of time to make the most of the precious filming time i could get in-between school runs, video editing and other life duties.


The advantages of bulk recording are obvious. If you upload 3 videos a week but you are able to make 5 videos every weekend, you will never run out of videos to upload to your channel even if you need to move house, go into hospital, go on holiday or simply have writers block one week.

WHAT IS DEPRESSION?


Depression is a low mood that lasts for weeks or months and affects your daily life.

Symptoms of depression include feeling unhappy or hopeless, low self-esteem and finding no pleasure in things you usually enjoy.


SYMPTOMS OF DEPRESSION


Symptoms of depression include feeling unhappy or hopeless, low self-esteem and finding no pleasure in things you usually enjoy. 


Depression affects people in different ways and can cause a wide variety of symptoms.

They range from lasting feelings of unhappiness and hopelessness, to losing interest in the things you used to enjoy and feeling very tearful. Many people with depression also have symptoms of anxiety.


There can be physical symptoms too, such as feeling constantly tired, sleeping badly, having no appetite or sex drive, and various aches and pains. The symptoms of depression range from mild to severe. At its mildest, you may simply feel persistently low in spirit, while severe depression can make you feel suicidal, that life is no longer worth living.


Most people experience feelings of stress, anxiety or low mood during difficult times. A low mood may improve after a short period of time, rather than being a sign of depression.


BANKRUPTCY vs IVA

- What is bankruptcy?

- What is an IVA?


Bankruptcy is typically considered a last resort option for people suffering financial hardship, and for good reason. Going through bankruptcy can give you a chance to get your finances in order, and possibly even get a clean slate—but it also has negative consequences that can affect your possessions and make it difficult to get approved for credit for years.


Here's what you need to know before you file.


What Happens When Declaring Bankruptcy?

If you're struggling financially, bankruptcy gives you the opportunity to pay down a portion of your debts over time or have some of them eliminated entirely.


Either way, declaring bankruptcy grants what's called an automatic stay, which is essentially a block on your debt to keep creditors from trying to collect. They can't deduct money from your bank account, garnish your wages or go after any of your other assets.


You'll then have time to work with the court and your creditors to determine the next steps.


WHAT IS AN IVA?


An individual voluntary arrangement (IVA) is a legally binding agreement between you and your creditors that helps you pay off your debts at an affordable rate. You make payments managed by an insolvency practitioner.


If you have an IVA and stick to the agreement, you’ll get protection from your creditors taking further action against you and some of your debt will be written off.

What Is RPM? [RPM vs CPM on YouTube] {ep 064)

YouTube recently added ROM to youtube analytics. Any time a new stats metric is add to the system it normally means something big. So today I am going to explain to you What Is RPM? How does RPM affect my/your channel? How to improve RPM? How to increase cpm? and CPM vs RPM.


What Is RPM? - RPM is a simple metric that compares your total revenue against your views. It's calculated by multiplying all your revenue reported in YouTube Analytics (including ads, YouTube Premium, Channel Memberships and Super Chat and Super Stickers) by 1,000, and then dividing it by total views in the same time period.


RPM means revenue per mille, and tells you how much you earned per thousand views. To calculate your RPM, your estimated revenue is divided by your total views in the same time period.


Your estimated revenue includes revenue from ads, YouTube Premium, memberships, Super Chat and Super Stickers. This is the actual revenue that you earned after YouTube's revenue share.


Total views is defined as all views, including views that weren't monetised.


Because RPM is calculated with your share of the revenue and includes views that weren't monetised, it's typically lower than the playback-based CPM.


What is CPM? - Cost per 1000 impressions (CPM) is a metric that represents how much money advertisers are spending to show ads on YouTube. You'll see a few different CPM metrics in YouTube Analytics: CPM: The cost an advertiser pays for 1,000 ad impressions. An ad impression is counted any time that an ad is displayed.


Playback-based CPM means effective playback-based cost per mille, and tells you how much advertisers paid per thousand monetised playbacks.


To calculate your playback-based CPM, the total revenue from ads is divided by estimated monetized playbacks. An estimated monetized playback happens when a viewer sees at least one ad impression when watching one of your videos.

How Much Do YouTubers Get Paid? [YouTube CPM] (ep 057)

How Much Do YouTubers Get Paid? [YouTube CPM] (ep 057)

How Much Do YouTubers make per 1000 views? If you get more views on Youtube you assume you would make more money, that's not entirely true. YouTube cpm rates vary from video to video, topic to topic and channel to channel. A channel getting a million views a month with prank videos might make peanuts compared to a channel getting one hundred thousand views all about passive income and finance.

Today we are here to dispel the myth of youtube money, making money on youtube and start digging into how much does 1000 views make a youtuber - you'll be surprised at how wildly different this can be.

How much do youtubers make per view? Does more YouTube views mean more money for the creator?

So many people are driven by "how to get more subscribers" - "how to get more views" - "how to grow a youtube channel" - when you should be engaging the audience you already have

Get More Views on YouTube in 15 Seconds (ep 053)

A quick tip to answer how to get more views on YouTube in 15 Seconds. This trick will not only get you more video views but increase engagement and get you more subscribers on YouTube as well. The hook to your video is important to make people curious but also let them know you will deliver on what your title and thumbnail is promising the viewer.
