US Government Shutdown Affect on Immigrations

no thumb

The US Government is possibly shutting down on 19 Jan 2018 if legislators cannot agree on a federal budget for 2018. If they agree on at least a short term solution, they can extend the decision to 16 Feb 2018.

If the government is shutdown, how will this affect the immigration services? Specifically, K1, K3, CR1 and green card which is what most of our community is going through.

From our quick glance at the resources below, we can see that it not shut down USCIS or Department of State (the main organization doing immigration services) but may delay them. The articles indicate that these services may shut down if the government is shutdown for a long period of time.

How to Get 10,000 Subscribers

How to get to 10k subscribers

We started doing videos in 2014.  But we did not get serious until 2015.  First of all its not really about the subscribers, it is about the views!  And having a big audience is not as important as having an active audience.  But an audience is important.

What did we do to get serious:
– Know your Audience
– Posting consistently
– Talk about what you know
– Learn What Youtube is all about
– Try new things

Know your audience – this means talk to the people watching and commenting on your videos.  Respond to them, read your messages and ask them what they want.  Check out your youtube analytics.  It will tell you what countries they are coming from, what their gender is and about how old they are.  Develop a connection with your audience.

Post consistently – This is not so much about posting a LOT as much as it is posting the same time  or day of the week or month.  Posting daily is super powerful, but not many people can do this.  So just be realistic about what you can do and set a schedule.. it really works.  There are also tricks you can do to keep you on the map with Youtube.. such as create playlists on days you cannot post.  

Talk about what you know – Everyone has something they do well or know a lot about.  Use this to your advantage by telling people about it.  You can even make a separate channel or weekly show about that thing you are good at.  People really respond to information from an expert.

Learn more about Youtube – take the time to do some homework on how to use youtube more effectively.  When they introduce a new feature, implement it and test it.  Learn about search engine optimization, using cards, how to broadcast.  Learn as much as you can.  Watch the pros and copy them.

And lastly, don’t be afraid to try new things.  Try broadcasting, try interviews, try vlogging, try storytelling, try writing scripts.. you can even try other platforms such as Younow, periscope, facebook, mixer, twitch.
