first_imgTRUMP NEEDS MORE VOTES, LESS APPLAUSE                                                                    Making Sense by Michael ReaganI’ve finally figured out what Donald Trump’s main problem is.No jokes, please.It’s because at his core he’s an entertainer who’s looking for applause, not a politician who’s looking for votes.Applause makes you feel good on stage at the Improv or at the end of a Broadway play. But it doesn’t get you elected.If Trump really wants to save what’s left of Western Civilization from four years of President Hillary Clinton, he’s got to learn how to get his message out to more voters.When he gives his big policy speeches, he does fine.The addresses he delivered recently about fighting terrorism and fixing the economy were generally good.They’d make good stump speeches and he should shorten them to twenty minutes and repeat at least one of them every day.But the most important thing about those careful, joke-free teleprompter speeches wasn’t what Trump said or even how he said it.It was that he was speaking to the whole country, not just the people in the auditorium.He wasn’t seeking the instant approval of the audience with his “Crooked Hillary” shtick or promises to build a border wall and make Mexico pay for it.In those two serious policy speeches Trump did what my father did in Berlin in 1987 at the Brandenburg Gate, when he told Mikhail Gorbachev to “Tear down this Wall!”My father wasn’t merely speaking to the huge crowd in front of him, he was speaking beyond them to all the people on the other side of the Berlin Wall who were not free.Trump has to start speaking to a wider, broader, larger audience — the independents and Republicans that he’s got to get to vote for him.He needs to do it every day. He can’t slip back to delivering his applause lines. We’ve heard those jokes.We’ll soon see whether Trump’s new team of Kellyanne Conway and Steve Bannon can make a difference in his behavior or focus.Conway is a pro who knows what she’s doing. But you can hire the best people on the planet and it won’t help if you don’t listen to them.While Team Trump is in a hiring mood, how about finding someone who actually knows how to stage a campaign speech?When Trump was in Wisconsin earlier this week talking about the economy and how the Democrat Party’s has failed and betrayed black people, I don’t think I saw a single black person.It was incredibly amateurish stagecraft.It’d be like giving an important policy speech about the plight of out-of-work coal miners to an audience of nuns or guys in three-piece suits.I realize Trump isn’t exactly surrounded by black supporters. And I know the part of Wisconsin he was in was 95 percent white.But couldn’t someone in his campaign have found fifty black people to be in the crowd so the media couldn’t react in the knee-jerk way they did?My father’s media genius, the late deputy chief of staff Michael Deaver, would have had a thousand blacks in that audience even if he had had to pay them to be there.Trump has to do a lot more learnin’ and a lot more hirin’.And if he doesn’t do it real soon he’ll be back running his business empire, living a quiet life in Trump Tower and getting in almost as many rounds of golf each week as President Obama.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

FOM comments: Don’t wait for Feb. 8

first_img 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr NAFCU Director of Regulatory Affairs Alicia Nealon is urging credit unions to send NCUA their field-of-membership comment letters before the Feb. 8 due date. In a NAFCU’s Compliance Blog post today, she details the resources available to assist that effort.NAFCU has talking points available to credit unions to help them put their comment letters together. It has also drafted individual letter templates for comments on the types of charters affected. There are also multiple posts on the NAFCU Compliance Blog detailing these (community, multiple-common bond and TIP charters).“NAFCU believes NCUA’s proposal will help many credit unions reach more potential members who want and need affordable financial services, and I encourage you to write a comment letter to NCUA explaining how the proposal will provide much-needed relief to your credit union and membership,” Nealon writes.The bankers continue their campaign against NCUA’s proposal. American Banker on Wednesday detailed the bankers’ claims about the proposal along with NAFCU’s input. “NAFCU members believe that the federal credit union charter must keep pace with changes in state laws, technology, and the progressiveness of the financial services industry,” NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger told House and Senate leaders last week in a letter that was also quoted by American Banker. continue reading »last_img read more

YouTube money: How to get paid

first_imgYouTube is a giant on the interwebs. As of 2018, YouTube boasted over 7 billion videos for your viewing pleasure. No doubt you’ve heard that people are making a living creating YouTube content. Take PewDiePie, for example. He is a YouTube juggernaut, bringing in more than $11 million a year. That’s not a typo.So, how do you make money from YouTube?AdsAds are the most common way to monetize your video content. YouTubers can roll ads of various types through their video content. The presence of these ads, depending on the type of ad, and the amount of time spent viewing an ad, will bring you revenue.Getting to that point, however, does take a bit of work. You can’t simply start running ads on your channel. YouTube has a list of requirements that must be met before you enroll in their YouTube Partner Program (YPP).The first thing you need is continuous content. The reason for this is because you need to have views. As per YouTube’s requirements, a channel needs “4,000 watch hours in the last 12 months.” Hopefully, you’ll have gained some subscribers at this point, which will hopefully address the next hurdle.The YPP requires that in order to be eligible, you must have at least 1,000 subscribers to your channel. Assuming you’re posting content on a regular basis and that it’s good, savvy viewers will hopefully subscribe to your channel. Promoting your page through social media and asking people to share your content can help with this.Once these requirements are met, make sure your channel meets the YPP Policies and Community Guidelines. Read through the policies and make sure your channel and content mesh; otherwise, you might be denied entry into the YPP.What now?If you’ve managed to get accepted into the YPP, you are now ready to start monetizing your content. Be aware of “advertiser-friendly content,” however. This is defined as being “appropriate for most audiences and does not feature sensitive topics like drugs, sexually suggestive content, or hateful content.” Make sure to check out the content guidelines to ensure your videos are up to snuff. While more mature content can seem attractive, you most likely won’t see as much revenue from YouTube ads.Please understand that the financial benefits take a while to show. Give it time and keep pumping out good content, and you will start to see money come in.
