Thanks Zo! This is awesome and I hope it gets really successful for you. I really appreciate what you do!
Righto, and please know that at the end of the day, I'm so grateful that anyone would see my work as something others oughta consider seeing.
I'm with you, I'm not trying to sell anything. It's going to be a lot harder being less diversified, but that's why I said I'd step up my promotional efforts. I am liking what you got going on here. Hopefully it will prove to be the best way forward, and others will start following your path. Maybe we'll create a meta site to link us all to our favorite Conservative and Christian commentators websites. IDK...but it could take the power away from those tech tyrants.
Brian, please accept that this my course. I have posted my work from rumble on Facebook, and other platforms. If you didn't see it it wasn't due to me not posting. Honestly, one of the most frustrating things about this is people assuming to know something about my experience that I don't. It's like people trying to tell somebody what to do to stop the hiccoughs, as if they haven't tried all the supposed cures. I'm not a fan OF checking bunch of platforms either. Dividing mo focus here and there trying to promote my work divvied up between platforms. I could save that time promoting from one site, and use that time to concentrate on bettering the quality of my content, the way its supposed to be. You say you're willing to suck it up, well I'm having to make sacrifices too, and make adjustments. I'm grateful that ya want my work seen. But I'm not interested in Rumble. Just because rumble will be big, doesn't mean I'll benefit from it. So, please, man. PLEASE. Accept that I'm not interested in Rumble. It's not the answer to my work. Through all the heart ache of struggling to get my content and having my brand and livelihood destroyed, as my efforts have been faded out. It makes it very difficult to to see the point in bothering with this and keep the head up. I have finally found a little bit of light shining through and joy, in working from my website. Something I never got from Rumble. I've waited a long time for that little light of joy. Can I just have that, please? Can we stop with trying sell me on Rumble? Thanks man! Shalom!
When I came to Rumble, searching for "channels" with your name, only brought up the one "Alfonzo Rachel" channel, that has only one video on it. Now, they include in the "channel" search, a few videos with your name on it. That's new. Glad to see that now.
I get that it frustrated you...I do. However, you were way ahead of the others by going there. Now there are actually well over 80 million users. And you are your best promoter. As for sharing videos, I am guilty of not doing that myself. But I really don't use other social media sites much anymore. Selfish?...perhaps. I'll try to make more of a point to sharing your content on the platforms I am still using. For the same reasons as you, I felt it was a waste of time since those platforms, were and are still, shadow banning Conservative content. But now there are platforms that don't shadow ban. And they are growing in numbers. So I just hope you won't miss the wave this time. (so to speak) Timing is key brother. Don't blame Rumble for peoples, slow-to-react nature. The entire concept of leaving the main platforms was insane back then. Now they're waking up...it would be a good time to take advantage of it. You were on the right track, just way ahead of time.
I don't recall you posting any videos from Rumble on Fascistbook when you were still there...If you did, then shadow banning would have most likely been the reason I didn't see it. I see a lot of video content providers that use both still posting their YouTube channel instead of letting them even know they are on Rumble. I suspect that's about the money more than the principle. I'm confident that's not who you are of course.
I'm not a fan of having to check a bunch of different platforms and websites to see what I want to see...but I am willing to suck it up for the cause. lol What's a little inconvenience for the cause of Truth Justice, and the Biblical American way? lol God bless brother...I'll step up my promotional efforts. ;)
I hear what your saying, Brian, but nope. My name, AlfonZo Rachel, is attached to every one of those channels. It doesn't just say TZL or TZD. That's not a fair assessment. The channels like TZL is "The Zo Loft w/ AlfonZo Rachel. My name is obviously included in the channel title. Again, I've given Rumble a fair shake. I'm sorry ya don't think so. Why should I focus on putting so much energy promoting work from Rumble, than I would from my own site? I'm not not denying anyone of my work by not promoting on Rumble. If people aren't finding my work interesting enough on Rumble to share where they can, that's not me denying anyone. That's just simply their lack of interest. The content is there and free to share, They mostly don't. People aren't learning of me there, or hardly anywhere. I'm just as easy to find here, and it's just as easy as folks to share my work from here, and just as easy for folks to tell folks I'm here than to generate my folks from elsewhere. I hope ya can understand my reasoning and experience with this.
To be fair, your Rumble accounts are TZL, TZD, and ThatDudeZo...not Alfonzo Rachel. Which is what most people would look for...your name. I DID look for you, and couldn't find you, because I was looking for your name. Did you share your videos from Rumble on other platforms like Fascistbook, instead of from BlueTube?
You were just ahead of Rumble's time then; ahead of the game if you will. But now Rumble is growing fast. Don't quit before the miracle happens. Don't forget how horrible YouTube was when it was as young as Rumble. Constant issues. On that count, Rumble is far ahead of the game. They still have their problems, but what can we expect when the Devil is fighting against our freedoms?
I love what you're doing here...especially if you could eventually live stream the ZOpium Den and chat here. I'm 100% behind you on that one. But if new potential viewers don't see you on either video platform, then you're robbing many of the pleasure to know you. Depending on others to share your videos. People prefer to search as few of the platforms as possible, to find what they are looking for. Which is why people flocked to those uber platforms we are now fighting against.
As the article says in the end, which is what I've been saying all along....(in so many words) "But don’t put all of your resources into one platform. We always recommend a diversified omnichannel strategy."
I hope you understand my reasoning...and know that I only want others to know of you. Especially since you aren't afraid to speak of the Gospel message. God bless, and stay Bold brother!
You know that Rumble now has a "Live Stream to Archive" feature with chat? I really, really miss the interactivity that is an actual Bible Study. Which is what it was when you did it on Fascistbook. What you have now, is more like a Bible Teaching, but with interaction only afterwords. Rumble does not shadow ban...their algorithm is too rudimentary for that. Here's a non-political tech site that did an article about Rumble. You may find it enlightening as I did. God bless and stay Bold!
