[quote=“Kawachan, post:1, topic:6793”]Hey, can I ask a critical question? I hope not to offend anyone. But Koetting claims to tap into immense powers that promise a lot, success among other things.
If this is real, why is Koettings Youtube success so mediocre then? Take a look at his Youtube channel, it was made 2012. Almost 3-4 years ago soon! Long time for a channel. He has 30k subs, but only little interest and clicks compared to that.
He made a video 2 weeks ago (Open The Gateways To The Spirit World With Fire) and has only 2,8k clicks even though he has OVER 30k subscribers! That is an increeedibly bad ratio. Same with his other videos besides some (mostly older exceptions)… even 5-8k views isn’t great for an almost 4 years old channel with a lot of marketing.
Now, don’t tell me he doesn’t even want clicks. He does! He tries to utilizie clever thumbnails and clickbait pictures and titles, yet doesn’t really succeed with it.
How do you guys explain that to yourself? My little sister who got into streaming and games pretty recently (this spring) already has a bigger Youtube channel and better clicks going on without any kind of rituals. I don’t get how that makes sense? How can a LIVING GOD only stay at mediocre success, for the amount of time, effort and marketing he puts in?
Like I said, hope no offense taking. Just genuinely curious.[/quote]
No need to worry about it.The world of the Left Hand Path is full of people who are open about their shortcomings,EA included,as he is a rather humble person once you get past the marketing stuff.
That said,we have a rule here.It’s that every new member has to post an introduction in this thread:
Before making any actual posts.
Both of that aside,let’s move on to why EA’s ‘‘glory’’ isn’t nearly as big as we imagine it.
First off,this guy is talking about black magic and becoming a living god.The number of subscribers you see,are only those who are willing to subscribe,willing to share with the world that on the internet,they watch EA’s videos.
It’s coming out of the broom closet,coming out of the dark magic closet,and coming out in general on an internet level.Though few people will actively dig through your youtube channel to see who you subscribe to,many of us are highly uncomfortable subscribing to his videos,or even liking them,because we can’t let the information leak that we like,study,and practice that kind of stuff.
So the number you see,in the case of both subscribers and likes,is not the whole picture.
Secondly,even this slightly broader group of people who like EA’s videos and practice occultism and are open about it,make up a fraction of the occult community,which is,to be honest,very small when compared to the number of gamers that are out there like your sister.
If your sister and EA have the same number of subscribers,then I can probably guarantee that a greater number of occultists are watching EA’s videos than gamers are watching her videos,even though the same number of people are doing it,that number is bigger in terms of one group than the other.
Then there’s those who simply study his work,but prefer to watch his videos and take from it what they can use but also consult a wide variety of other sources.Why should they invest their time and energy into EA Koetting’s work?
And finally,we are looking at this from the perspective of youtube.People who follow him(and S Ben Qayin,and Timothy Donaghue,and any other member of the BALG staff),on other social medias is something to take into account.
Many of the people who ‘‘like’’ EA’s page on facebook also like it on youtube,but there are those who like him on youtube,but not on facebook and vice versa.On top of the silent shy ones on both ends,who can’t,or don’t want to,express such opinions.
And in the end,he’s spreading knowledge about magick,so does it matter to how many people he’s relaying this information to,or what kind of people he’s telling it too?
