Adrian’s Journal #191128

Let’s go to the post office. Mail an item to England. Then go back to work. Tonight, visit SITEX 2019 and collect brochures.

That’s my plan for today in a nutshell.

Had a good 5-hour slumber last night. Thanks for the cool rainy weather. Thanks for the nice warm hash brown at breakfast.

What 3 amazing things happened yesterday?

  1. Filled up email campaign with 7 follow ups for Zhiyun Smooth 4 smartphone gimbal subscribers (98 subscribers up to date). All value. No selling. ROI: Building my list of smartphone YouTube bloggers.
  2. Announced on social : “The 2-day Videography and Video Editing Course is happening on 7 and 8 December 2019… ticket sale ends 12 noon on Friday, 29 November 2019… Please share this with someone who can benefit from it… “. ROI: Nothing yet, sending another announcement today.
  3. Prepared SITEX 2019 blog post ROI: Increased website visitors… More adsense clicks.

What will I do to make today great?

  1. Announce video course sale closing tomorrow…

  3. Create InVideo Review Part 2 of 7.

And much much more…

  3. Add a new chapter to Smartphone Video Class. Teleprompter.
  4. Update my Video Marketing Strategy: While taking the time to create a 5-minute video, do the intro and outro first and post it on social media as a teaser. Include magic. Tik Tok loves magic… Linkedin too surprisingly.

  6. Create 5 posts on VIDEOLANE.COM including a DaVinci resolve training, Zhiyun smooth 4, DVD Creation, and Smartphone tricks. Also Google News. YT Q&A. Documentation.

  12. Download live recording of 29 Oct 2019 smartphone video class. Edit and Sell online.
  13. Document VideoPad speech to text automatic subtitles.
  14. Create a list of missing features on Adobe Premiere Pro. Still, no way to add audio transition or audio fades on video clips in Adobe Premiere Rush. Still cannot unlink audio from video clips.

Coming up next… What happened? What did not work? What did I learn?

What happened today?

  1. Emailed IT Fair SITEX 2019 and Black Friday deals.

What did I learn today?

  1. Pat Flynn Podcast. How to offer Black Friday discount. Time limited, free shipping, discount dollar better then percent, always show higher price before discount, special bonuses, create bundles, partnering with other people’s product, email marketing last day is insane, send 2 emails on final day, send to unopened emails, live on Facebook…

The original "idea" journal posted on Aril 28, 2015. I have a request to shoot a corporate internal talk and stream it to a live audience in seven different countries.

First 3 things that came to mind is...

1. Video conferencing system.
2. Google+ Hangouts On Air with YouTube Live.

Video conferencing system is out as that would require a whole set of dedicated equipment.

All I have at this point is.


MacBook Pro Built-in Internal Microphone Location

Where is the built-in internal microphone on the MacBook Pro Retina 15?
There's two of them and both are situated inside the left speaker vent.

The dual built-in microphones are designed tor educe background noise from behind the notebook. The also create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice — instead of the noise around you.
