Off-peak hours

If you are like me and still have an ADSL line with crappy upload speeds or you have free bandwidth during off-peak hours that you do not use, this method will save your bandwidth and upload your youtube videos while you sleep.

Upload YouTube Videos 

As far as I can find on the internet, there is no simple way of doing this and no option on youtube to schedule your uploads. There is an option to schedule your video publishing time, but this article NOT about that. 

In short, this is what you need to do to upload your videos during off-peak hours 

  • (Optional) shrink your video with a tool such as Handbrake
  • Setup Google Drive & Backup
  • Copy your video file to your upload folder
  • Schedule Google Drive & Backup to run during off-peak hours
  • Import your video using Google photos 

This might sound like a mouth full, but the setup and scheduling are done once and after that, all you have to do is to copy your new file into your upload folder.

Setup Google Drive & Backup 

Download and install Google Drive & Backup. You do not have to use it for any other files other than the videos you like to upload. But of course, you can use the way you want.

I have created a folder on my desktop where I copy the videos I like to schedule for upload and set up my Google Drive & Backup just to sync that folder and the most important part is to tick the option to “Upload newly added photos and videos to Google Photos” 

I also don’t want to sync down anything from my Google Drive so I just deselect the option. 

The last important setting is to unselect the option to “Open Backup and Sync on system startup” as that will start Google Drive & Backup and that will defeat the whole purpose of this How-To :)

Schedule a Start and Stop task with Windows Task Scheduler

Create a Start Google Backup task

  • At the search box, type: task scheduler
  • Open Task scheduler
  • From Action menu select Create Task
  • At the General tab type a name for the task. e.g. "Start Google Backup"
  • Then choose the Triggers tab and click New.
  • Specify when you want to start the "Google Backup and Sync" process and click OK.
  • Then choose the Actions tab and click New.
  • At Program/Script field, type the following command, according to your Windows architecture (32 or 64bit) and click OK.
  • For Windows 32-bit type: "C:\Program Files\Google\Drive\googledrivesync.exe"
  • For Windows 64-bit type: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Drive\googledrivesync.exe"
  • Click OK again to close the Create Task window and continue to the next step.

Create a Stop Google Backup task 

  • From Task Scheduler's main menu choose Action and select Create Task.
  • At the General tab type a name for the task. e.g. "Stop Google Backup"
  • At the Triggers tab, click New.
  • Specify when you want to stop the "Google Backup and Sync" process and click OK.
  • At the Actions tab, click New.
  • At Program/Script field, type the following command:
  • taskkill.exe
  • At Add arguments (optional) filed type:
  • /f /im "googledrivesync.exe"
  • Click OK.
  • OK again to close the Create Task window.

Copy your video file to your folder

Now you can just go to bed and the next morning your video will be uploaded to Google Photos. 

Import Video from Google Photos 

Go to your YouTube channel and click the upload video link. 

Do NOT click the select file main option, but click the Link “UPLOAD WITH CLASSIC”. It will ask you why you like to use the old method. I just select the tick box “something is missing from the new uploader” and state that import from Google photos is missing, but you can just skip the option now and then :)

At this point, you will see the Google Photos logo and “IMPORT VIDEOS” Click the import button and select your newly uploaded video and go through the options. When you are done, you can also open the YouTube studio and edit the video with the latest options in the new upload version.

And that is that for this work-around. Hope you find it useful!

Free 1 hour website update session

Are your website outdated? Would you like a free website update session for your own website?

free 1 hour website update

Do you still have the same banner image on your website since it launched in 2016 or do you maybe have information and contact details of people on your about page that have left the company ages ago?

I will do a free website update of a 1-hour session.

Yes, I will change and or update your information on your website, spending my time for the absolutely low price of nothing!

I have realized that most people and small business, and even large ones for that matter, spend their time running their business. Most times there is simply not the time for updating a website, or you just don’t get around to doing it as its very low on your priority list. Or you are unable to get hold of your website designer or you have the computer skill to do it, but do not get round to upskill yourself to be able to do this yourself.

Please read the article that I have written about the 6 ways your outdated website is killing your business.

So what is the catch?

There is no catch. I will do the 1-hour update of your website on my own time and will not ask you a sent for it. Just fill in the form and I will get back to you.

There is 1 catch, actually, or sort of!

I only catch is that I only have 8 slots per month.

Yes, I am no time manipulator or time traveler and just like you, I only have 24 hours in a day. Like everybody with a business, I must also manage my time the best I can and have put aside only 2 hours per week for people or businesses like yourself.

Yes, there are only 2 slots per week for a free website update!

Do not miss a slot and request your free 1-hour update now before all the slots are taken for this month! Just fill in the form and I will get back to you.

Then why would you do this free website update you might think?

It is simple really. I do believe that I can bring value to any company I work with. I believe most companies are leaving money on the table for lots of reasons. Helping you with your website will get us to know each other and build trust.

Maybe in 6 months time or when you are ready, you want to update or rebuild your website and I will be able to put my name in the hat and be able to quote you as we already have a relationship. So there you have it, the cat is out of the bag. Now you know.

Maybe you will trust me just a bit more to take me up on my other free offer on Facebook advertising. Yes, I can run your Facebook ads for free for two weeks.

If you have not heard about Facebook advertising or have not done it, you are missing out on a big opportunity to expand your business for not a big investment.

What if I am able to make you more money, put more money in your bank and I am willing to do it for you for free? Would it not be something any business would look at or at least try it out?

This could be the best decision you take all year!

But, as with all things in life, everybody and everything is not always a good fit for each other. Maybe I realize during my free hour of updating your website that we might not be such a good fit for each other, saving me lots of heartache and stomach ulcers in future by not quoting when you want to update your website.

They say sales are all about the numbers, but I believe to add value to a company, building a relationship with them, growing their revenue and in the process I can ask more for my services.

Everybody wins!

Apart from the obvious appeal of living in a secure environment alongside a golf course, there is the additional advantage of generous natural greenbelts formed around perennial as well as seasonal watercourses enclosed within the Golf Estate. The strategic hillside position affords views over the golf course, the extensive conservation areas and the surrounding wheat and canola lands making for a superb setting.
