Guru YouTube Account Termination?

A couple of days ago I saw a blog post by ultra guru and super affiliate, Jeff Johnson.  In this post Jeff goes over how YouTube terminated his main account because someone in the YouTube community complained.

He is very upset and rightfully so because that account had over a million views on it and now it is just gone bye-bye…  Jeff talked about how he went over the Google, oh did I say Google; I mean YouTube’s (LOL since Google owns YouTube) account policies with a fine tooth comb and couldn’t see why he was shut down.

Sorry Jeff, I know that you are a guru and all but compared to Google and YouTube you are just a very small squirrel trying to get a nut; though I hate to say it…

You see I believe that we Internet Marketers have been placed in Google’s crosshairs and we will now begin to see more and more of us picked off one-by-one.

The reason why is simple: Google views the IM niche as Get-Rich-Quick!

In my opinion, they are trying to weed us out because they believe that the average person will not succeed when trying to make money online and they’re probably right.  I wish that they weren’t but they probably are.

One good indication of this is something that I recently heard from Frank Kern, and that is that he is shocked that more people don’t want to learn more about mindset.  You see Frank did a survey where thousands of people responded and just like the other surveys that he has done in the past, one of the least requested things that people want to learn about is mindset.  Frank said that he is still going to teach it indirectly because it is actually the most important thing that people need to learn; even if they don’t realize it.

What I’m getting at is this: YouTube and Google are going to “protect us” whether we like it or not!  They think, like the Government, that people are dumb and don’t know any better and in some cases they are right but not in all cases.

Why do I have this point of view?  I feel this way because even the great guru Frank Kern keeps trying to get people to understand that mindset is the most important thing but they won’t even listen to him.  People want what they want and that is just that.

So good luck getting your YouTube account reinstated Jeff Johnson; you’re going to need it…

Failed Product Launches

Did you or some guru you know have failed product launches?  Did they make some kind of critical error or mistake that cost them a lot of money?  Chances are, probably not and here’s why.

Your email inbox has probably been full the past few months with an ungodly amount of emails promoting everything under the sun.  At least that has been my experience.  I don’t think that I have ever seen so many emails in my inbox ever.  I was getting so many that I had to start unsubscribing to the ones that I was only so so interested in.

All of these emails in your inbox mean something, saturation!  Now despite the current state of the economy there is still plenty of money to go around.  After all, a recession is just the redistribution of wealth when it is all said and done.  Money doesn’t just disappear into nothing, it has to go somewhere; into a different set of people’s pockets…

There are many reasons for failed product launches but the main reason is because 90% of the money made is made by the top 10% of super affiliates.  Now with all of the launch promotions going on, the big boys and girls can only promote so many products to their lists.  There are just too many products launching to promote them all.  So the gurus must be selective about which launches to get behind, which usually are the joint venture (JV) partners that did well for them in their own launches.  You scratch their backs and they’ll scratch yours.

One thing is for sure, if you can get two or more big gurus fighting it out for the number one spot on your launch you are going to make a lot of money!  One example of this is the recent re-launch of Brendon Burchard’s Experts Academy, where Frank Kern and Jeff Johnson publicly announced that they were trying to take the number one spot in the JV contest.  I don’t know who won between the two but I know who the real winner is and that’s Brendon Burchard!

But what about the lesser launches, is there any room for success?  Yes there is but it takes a little bit more work.  You have to build your own strong email list with a really good converting backend product funnel that brings in money on autopilot.

There is no real underground secret to keep you from having failed product launches other than connecting with the people on your own email list (preferably buyers list) and turning them into raving fans because you provide tons of value.  That way you will have a sustainable long-term business without the need for any JV partners.

What failed product launches did you hear about and what do you think?  Let me know in the comments section.
