Thanks so much! I keep experimenting with the ad placement. I am still not sure yet what is best. Right now its kinda looking like Bloomberg news LOL

Do you have any suggestions as far as that goes?

Well, that approach made Michael Bloomberg a billionaire.

I don't mind the ad placement. It actually frames the screen nicely with enough room for a graphic of the story you're currently discussing. Keep experimenting though. Maybe you'll hit upon a formula that even Bloomberg will follow.

The only recommendation I can think of right at the moment is to revisit the audio for your ending product send off. It sounds subdued like you lost a channel somewhere.

That is a very good point. I don't think this current camera has an external microphone input. That might really help grab the audio better.


When you think of the value of such a show as GopherHaul, what do you find are the most important or interesting topics that should be discussed? What do you think the target audience wants to hear more of or less of?

Thank you very much.

I still think it has so much further to go! I can't believe how tough it is to try and fit in all the things going on in 10 minutes max. I cut so much stuff out and I still feel I just don't get enough in.

Do you think it's more important to talk about forum discussions or general business discussions or just other things?

Why is the show only 10 min?
can you make it longer like a 30 min show.
I think it is very important to talk about stuff thats in the forum
because if there are first time viewers that haven't been to the forum it would probably get them here out of curiosity.you can do that for 15 min and take another 15 min to do the gopherhaul of the month and stuff.
have you ever thought of doing interviews with lcos in your area.
that can probably get lots of local attention too.

Thanks for the ideas! Those are all very good.

Youtube limits the max length of time to 10 minutes. I think there is a way around it with a certain type of account but I haven't looked further into it yet.

What would you like to see covered in interviews with other lcos?
