“We Are Powerful – Use It!”

Just got this via Facebook this evening…

Hey Shawn, I saw your Davos video (of course) and the one blaring thing I noticed is that you did not mention what is UNIQUE about YOU. Lots of people work on ending poverty. You even listed websites who are doing it too.. but you didn’t say.. what is special about YOU.

You’ve gotta start using that as your leverage. Thats why I gave YOU money instead of them. That’s why we follow you. You’ve got a unique audience because of the unique way you work – which is also important.

Mention it in your next davos, and in any of the other videos you make that describe what you do. The thing about not using guilt, about showing your viewers where the money goes.. use that. use the unique viewers you have.. we are not middle aged charity people.

We’re nerdfighters and youtubers and we are powerful – use it!

    Gotta say i agree man, that guy speaks the truth. Love the idea of you going to Davos to talk it out but i don’t think this video is your best work. Next time i say we secure it, get Alan Lustafka to add in a bit of Kinetic Typography to make it stand out at the end, get nerdfighters to add in videos of them talking why they sub to you, show them some of what you’ve done. They have millions of applicants to sift through so they aren’t gonna go around clicking links, put videos in the side of you talking to people, make your video in advance, preferably in Bangladesh, i think we have the potential to get you to Davos, just gotta concentrate on the pitch.
