You’re given a chunk of major league media – your own YouTube channel with a massive amount of subscribers, for example – how do you use that platform?

Get specific about titles and format. If you were given cart blanche with a Superbowl commercial, what would you use it for? PSA?  About what? Promotion of ….?

Bottomline: you’ve got a captive audience on the platform of your choice, what do you want to do with it?

If I had my own YouTube channel with an instant audience, I’d produce content like Tara Brach’s:

Yes, I’ll admit I have a serious case of hero worship going on here. Don’t get me started on chronicling all of my crushes.

  1. Oh, that’s easy. See my Facebook page. Minus the posts about the funny things my kids do, the silly visual jokes, what I’ve been eating, bitching about work, and… um… okay. Maybe my social media persona isn’t as well developed as I’ve thought.

    I would want to organize around a theme so that I could put a wide variety of topics into my communication. I think that what excites me about promoting is change and awareness. Being Aware is one of the most critical things a human can do, I believe. Awareness leads to so many good things. Bad things, like prejudice, rage, and bigotry, are difficult to impossible if you are practicing awareness. My belief in change has to do with avoiding stagnation: stagnation of mind, body, and heart.

    So there is my general theme: Change and awareness. Some titles might be “A Skeptic’s Guide to Enduring the U.S. Election”, “What Motivates You to Be Such a Jerk”, “How to Survive the Latest iOS Update”, and “Why Strangers Are Your Enemies”. Format? I’m much more into text than video, but I understand that video reaches more people. I suspect I’d have a mix of formats. Of course, a YouTube channel has one format that I’d have to roll with, so I’m flexible.

    Bottom line: I’d take the opportunity to try to change people for the better, and help them navigate change.

    Ugh this is really sooo not my thing — however —

    I’d grab this opportunity to END ruining the world – from natural resources, to ensuring all people have renewable sources of clean water and food – to violent hatred between individuals factions / countries, regions — I’d find experts to write this and I suppose somehow – hypnotize the entire world via not just media but in new ways that EVERY human being gets this – and we all start to work together towards this end

    My psyche is so hurt by violence, racism, sexism, all the isms there are that are judgmental to others that I just cant’ think beyond that —

  3. This is a good one.

    If I had a big audience already, I would want to share a message of standing up for yourself, taking control of your life and creating the home and the relationships, of which we are WORTHY. And knowing that you ARE worthy already. I would like to inspire people to dig deep and find out what’s triggering them and how can the get out of this cycle of self-deprecation.

    Hmm, I always lean towards that topic. It keeps coming back. Maybe that’s something for me to think about…
