We´re Live. The guys start the conversation with how Google gets so many apps on the run just to experiment with them, Wave or Google plus is just an example even Google Health, that are completely shut down right now. That just leads to knowing that sometimes google is out of their game, and this is happening much more.

Chuck tells some good news to the guys, he´s now a host for 3 more podcast shows and some more business that he´s into, life is going pretty well for Chuck and he´s looking for advice with the guys. The first thing that they tell him is that he needs to take more action up front, hold the torch he´s on the perfect time and moment for this to happen.

We´re Live. Chuck starts the conversation about some emails that he had with some producers and involves John in the process, there was some type of complaint of how John is writing his emails, looks like he´s not giving much information away, chuck wanted feedback from the guys on this.

Chuck asks some advice to Josh about a problem that he´s been having with deliverability to his subscribers there was a serious issue that he should have at least send an email to tech support (Wich he didn’t) because almost half of his subscribers were not receiving anything, had to reorganize everything and in the process lost quite a pack of subscribers.

This is a really important topic for the guys, most of the business they conduct rely a lot on this email lists, all of the content and interaction goes through here , if this not taken care of, could be a game changer for the bad on any of the entrepreneurship they are doing, these are big numbers, so there´s lots of software that helps the guys with this.

We´re Live. Mani wants some feedback on a video that changes his traffic with little details changed on it like changing the title and thumbnail, there was a huge difference in traffic and the guys are analyzing it. They´re not sure what actually happened, the various hypothesis is on but is a mystery still. They Go through all the changes you can make to a youtube video just to make sure what makes the dramatic uprise.

The main concern is the tags, which actually it only leads the search engine to find the video, the guys agree that tags have no effect whatsoever, but Mani insists that the tags must do something, if not, why keep them? Youtube algorithm has changed a lot across the years, so it is essential to get up to date with this changes, your strategy can just plummet in a day if you don’t know what´s happening.

John claims that Youtube is a neural network, they have enough data to take the decisions of which videos will be recommended in your feed and what not, the algorithm do changes every now then but the concept remains the same.

“Youtube is a temporary business, it's not eternal so you have to learn how to move in the network”

We´re Live. Mani Talks to the guys about an email campaign about some new courses that he´s developing and looking for feedback on this especially from Josh who´s done this lots of times for Simple Programmer.

The main topic in this conversation is that when your doing a campaign there are two ways to do it, build the products for a brand you´re already working on and be correlated to the brand or the product itself alone, this depends on how are you running things and what are the end results you are looking for.

Mani talks about his entrepreneurship on book summaries and explain to the guys how this has become a great way to get a profit, but not only that, the knowledge and content that people are aware with this is tremendous and that´s what´s makes the difference between selling the book itself and the summary.

Josh gives an example of a brand transition, this happened with Simple Programmer. John Message didn’t get through completely people got really confused with it at some point. Charles recommends that they should circle back to their basic idea and build it from there because there´s already an audience, they will lose some people but actually gain newcomers.
