YouTube Views – Absolute Retention & How It All Works

It's been 2 weeks. And I have been toying with the idea of writing this article on YouTube Views. Doing my head in and so I decided, f*ck it Purple Rain, I’m doing it.

These are directly associated with Claim Social Authority as well as the impression I want to make in this industry. Without going round in circles, let me lay it on you.

Buckle up boys (and girls of course), it’s about to get real up in this mother…

Oh, a little disclaimer here… It might get a bit long. Let’s be real, most of you won’t bother reading this, and hey, that’s your prerogative.
