I must commend Glo for keeping OnTheAirTV active while so many others sites have fallen and have not much activity.I saw your video Glo about one asswipe being mad at OnTheAirTV going to NING but this person had no value for anyone but himself and all his content showed that full force to me,sorry but either you are with us or against us here and this person was always for himself.The problem with sites that remain unnoticed is you have to advertise and your can only get others to join your web site if you or some of your friends are popular other places,especially on YouTube.Let me give you examples starting with the most popular NING site that remains active,that I know of anyway,which is Vloggerheads.This was co-founded by Renetto,a well known video blogger at YouTube with many many subscriptions.When he and Tom made Vloggerheads,they did endless promotional videos talking about their site,which fueled many to notice them and join.They are still going strong because they are still advertised and many stayed in that vlogging community and have great fun to themselves mainly.
There is I-Tube,which is the new name of Dramatube,and not many know they still exist because of poor advertising.That site was created by Casey Nunez originally and somehow got abandoned or purchased to the NING site it is now.Without Casey running and advertising his own site and letting it fall on purpose,that site may have many members but is mainly deserted.It just came back from internet extinction and will only get popular again if a well known internet celebrity sponsors it.Moarvideo was started on a person who was popular on Livevideo,which never really got popular and promoted paid content and relied on them to get popular,which some did and some fell short as the buggy live feature which eventually hackers ruined made that site fail and died a horrible internet death.They brought in members of another dead site which needed a place from nowlive and took over the site with self centered material made for their friend base alone and hackers tore them to shreds.
Now getting to OnThe AirTV,founded by Glo Glover,to provide a better place than Livevideo to do video blogging.This was the first big red flag to me NOT to join OnTheAirTV because it was founded on devaluing another web site,Livevideo to say here is a better place to video blog from the get go,which did rub me the wrong way at first and I did not join this site to hear other sites trashed,I joined to support Glo who wanted to value create and produce,a legacy of providing value to it`s members and everyone who would join.A site can only remqain popular or become popular on the internet if it`s founder is popular and well watched and subscribed to,plain and simple.OnTheAirTV can be promoted to death on FB,YT and other sites but with a genuine fan base of it`s founder,it will never reach out there on the internet.
But there is other ways of advertising than the internet but that usually takes funds to do.A newspaper add promoting people to join is a great idea to me.There is magazines now promoting web sites and Glo should think about putting adds in those magazines or newpapers,even the Pennysaver,to promote OnTheAirTV because you can only do so much to promote your site when you are not popular,not to devalue Glo,a genuinely nice human being who tries without advertising to make others join.Sure,problems may come and go but facing those problems and not saying,well,that is just going to cause problems,is devaluing yourself and stagnates any productivity you had in mind for this site.Without taking chances,sites fail and die and.sorry,this and other web sites have been on life support for some time.Thank Chuck,SuburbanRyder,for paying for this site for a year.That takes a genuine friend to do so and I thank him for keeping the faith on this site.I tried to promote this site many times by my Horrorfind interviews and wearing my hat,which does get some notice and many ask me about this site but unless I am popular,anything I do or say gets as unnoticed as this site is.Promoting this site on other web sites will never work if the one promoting is not popular because it`s process of elimination in our minds.First we see who`s promoting it and see if we know or heard of them.No? When turn the page,we are not interested.Unfortunately,this is our usual mentality,to not give a person a chance if we do not know them or never heard of them.The only way to get members to join is intense advertising.Think of every single avenue to do this.Radio,newspapers,TV and internet.Even having someone with a sign or posting signs will get the ball rolling.Fliers are a great idea if you can afford that.
I know there is conflicting feelings about whether this site should remain only for it`s hardcore members or searching for a new friend base or adding on to this friend base.Video blogging,in a whole,has lost much appeal due to bad advertising by the media not to share their goings on and lives with others.People are scared because of the media tells them what is right or wrong instead of judging for themselves.I hope these words can be thought of as valuing OnTheAirTV because I do want this site to succeed but only outside promotion of it will work unless someone popular endlessly promotes it like Renetto did Vloggerheads.Outside advertising is the key and getting sponsors.
