Hey fellas,

We're close to the soft launch of our new video site.

Quick 1-line summary: YouTube's banning everyone in the pickup niche left and right. We're still on there, but who knows how long. So we've built our own YouTube.

Anyway, it is looking pretty good at this point. Tech is 99% done, and Victor's just adding the slick custom theme our ace designer whipped up. Once that's ready I'll share the URL so guys can start using the site in alpha and providing feedback. I'm sure we'll still be working out kinks here and there for a few more months once it starts getting traffic.

All Hector's videos are already on there -- including the old ones he deleted off YouTube. He'll also be adding all new YouTube videos there, along with a selection of never-before-seen videos available to Premium subscribers.

Meantime... I'll be creating videos for the site. Doing the same thing, creating both public and Premium videos.

(I don't know what we'll price premium at just yet. Looks like YouTube does Premium for $11.99/mo and Netflix is $13.99/mo... we'll likely be in that range)

Once we've got some traffic we'll start opening it up to other folks in the dating advice space. I've had a few guys express interest in setting up channels there already. Should be fun.

ANYWAY -- since I'm creating videos now, I'd like to ask what you'd like to see from me.

If you have any certain topics you'd like to see me cover, let me know here, and I'll see about getting a video or two on them put together.

Will try to knock out videos on anything anyone submits here, within reason.

Hi Chase,

Good to hear there's a video site coming. It would be cool to see videos with coaches shooting the breeze on PUA topics. As if the viewer is chilling with the "boys". Maybe like a weekly "series" with guests.

Infield videos would be neat too. But I understand risk with privacy concerns or high level of effort in filming. Saw a coach grilled in the media for the former a while back. He was supposedly filming without consent though.

As far as specific topics, it would be cool to see the following if not already available:

Daygaming in small cities. I've had difficulty daygaming in cities smaller than NYC or London. It feels like current daygame advice assumes NYC levels of volume. I have difficulty finding enough viable sets in malls, parks, gyms, etc. Not sure if the way to go is high-frequency instead of high-volume. In other words, increase frequency of game sessions to adapt to the low volume for any given session. So maybe I approach 10 girls over 5 days/sessions instead of hoping to approach 10 girls in 1 day/session.

Best cities conductive to seduction. It would be awesome to see a video on the best cities for finding a lot of attractive women. I know these lists change with time, so I'm curious what the sentiment is these days. I think this would be a fun video to watch.

Thank you,

Train

Infields of specific techniques are always great.

Preopening is always one that a written description just doesn’t convey information well to me.

As awkward as it is, adapted missionary only has that one image in the article describing how it looks. (Or maybe I just want to see Chase/Hector in their birthday suits )

How the various street stops look is also one I had a hard time with at the beginning.

WALK!! The number of times I’ve seen “a sexy walk” written but without visuals it’s difficult to understand what “gunslinger” or “male model” walks might look like.

Voice, posture, other fundamentals, etc.

Sounds awesome. And good thinking not being a google subsidiary!

As far a content I’d love to see on there, anything with teevster, bacchus or Pablo would be really cool to see. Also demonstrations of fundamentals (sexy walk, facial expressions, mannerisms) that are harder to communicate via text.
Looking forward to seeing what you guys do!

Wow, that's awesome!

Seeing you in One Date simply talking was pretty cool, I bet videos are gonna be even more awesome.

As far as topics go, I'd really want you to explain fundamentals such as doing the sexy walk, the sexy smile and facial expressions. Damn that would be amazing.

Best of luck!

This sounds brilliant.

I’d agree with what everyone else is saying regarding fundamentals and especially walk.

Furthermore, I think the video format would be valuable for more nebulous topics. Tactics and more technical topics are conveyed very well through text. It could be useful to have video content for subjects discussed in your earlier articles, (e.g. warmth), in order to exemplify the concepts a bit more.

I also agree with Teevster.

It is funny.

It is better having your own video site too if planning to monetize. Subscription model is the next thing for all business.

However, They treat Premium subscribers slightly nicer. They recommend me Trump/right leaning videos and I barely see CNN/Trevor Noah.

I wonder what Girlschase members get on their Google and YouTube.

Hi Chase.. I'd like to see you do a cold approach...I've always imagined it :)

I remember when I started out I read GC articles. But I didn't understand how to place all these information in reality or even how to calibrate it to the right moment.

Fast forward to 2016- I began watching lots of Tyler's videos, then, I understood how to apply the three seconds rule in reality...I learnt faster when I watched videos.

Another nice video would be: how women show signs of interest(IOI's).

Another one would be- calibration, being smooth and suave.

Infield videos of going direct in an approach.

Cheers for all the requests & ideas, gents!


FUNDAMENTALS

Lots of requests for fundamentals (@Kvothe, @Roundy, @James D, @Byron).

All right, I'll see about doing some fundamentals demo videos.

Need to think about the best way to organize that.

Also if I can make that look right while talking to a camera. e.g., trying to get the right facial expressions, etc.

Maybe I ought to try to do some man-on-the-street video and pull in a random girl to demo on. That could be a fun thing.

(the plan for now was just to do studio videos, since I've got the set up for it and can crank them out. But maybe we do something a little different once production's ramped up?)


IN-FIELD

Some requests for in-fields as well (@Train, @Kvothe, @Mr STIF).

I'm not going to do it right away, but I won't rule out. It could be nice. I'd only want to do it with a cameraman though... I'm not terribly fond of those bodycam-only POV vids.

I think the thing for me is going to be how well the project does and how quickly it blows up. If we hit 10,000 premium subscribers and my videos are getting most of the views I will definitely get a camera guy and go do some in-field.

Ideally bringing along some model release forms to get girls signing off after the pickup closes so we can actually show their faces... those blurry face videos really detract from the whole thing IMO.


@Train,

I like that "day game in small cities" topic.

"Best cities" I must sadly beg off doing... after seeing what happened to some of Ricardus's favorite locations once guys shared them on RooshVForum. Once a places catches on online, men flood in to spam approach the girls there. And in a few years, the market imbalance has corrected, and your formerly good spot is now an average spot, or even an overfished one.

(this has been happening for years with cities that catch on in young guy / pickup circles, even before RooshVForum. It happened to Prague in the 1990s, Zagreb in the 2000-naughts, and Kiev I think sometime in the early 2010s)

Although maybe I could do a topic simply on "why I won't talk about my favorite spots to meet girls." Maybe throw in some simple advice on a few things to look for when scouting spots, so the guys who are really serious about it can discover the best spots for themselves a little more easily.



@Kvothe,

We've got demos of pre-opening in my Touch-a-Girl System, which is due out... probably early January.

If you're planning on picking that up, it should help visualize those for you.

As for adapted missionary... ha! Is that hard to visualize?

You know that was the original concept for One Date... just a bunch of end-to-end in-fields where you see Chase approach the girl, pick her up, take her on the date, bring her home, escalate, and shag in One Date.

I actually went through a whole mental debate about whether we show the shag, or just pan to curtains while you listen to sex noises. And if we show it, do we show the naughty bits or not? And if we do, just hers, or are you looking at Chase's dong as well?

Then once all was done, I'd have to do the "Candid Camera" thing on her in the afterglow and try to get her to sign a model release form, lol. ("Hey, that was great, btw, this is going to sound a little nutty, but we've actually been filming with hidden cameras the entire time. It's for a good cause, to help guys who need help getting girls understand how the process works. Can I get you to give me a green light on this? You'd be helping so many people")

Eventually we just decided to make One Date an interview with a few girls on set instead. More informative to viewers, and infinitely more practical to film.


@Teevster,

I would love to see a video on why you believe Subway sandwiches are "healthy"

lol

I mean, compare it to what I usually ate before Subway, and you would understand ;)


@Roundy,

As far a content I’d love to see on there, anything with teevster, bacchus or Pablo would be really cool to see.

That will be at their discretion.

I'd be thrilled to have them as guests on my channel... or set them up with their own, if they want.

I don't know if any of them are comfortable having their faces out there. Or having a video channel.

If we can get the subscriber count up and guys are getting a solid payday from running their channels, it might become a more attractive option to them, though. So, we shall see.


@ZacAdam,

It is better having your own video site too if planning to monetize. Subscription model is the next thing for all business.

Yes.

It's a pain building the site and getting the storage to hold the videos and the bandwidth to deliver them.

So I'm not surprised more folks don't do it.

It's also just been easier to be on YouTube traditionally. Even if's not well monetized, you can build brand awareness, etc.

But now that there's the specter of being banned if you say or do the wrong thing, building anything there seems like a less and less attractive proposition, if you're in a risqué niche.

It's like this Oatmeal comic:

@Mr STIF,

Fast forward to 2016- I began watching lots of Tyler's videos, then, I understood how to apply the three seconds rule in reality...I learnt faster when I watched videos.

Interesting.

That makes sense, yeah.

First thing I did as soon as I discovered the pick up artist community was immediately go and book a bootcamp.

It's really hard for me to learn from books, articles, or videos. I just zone out. When I can see it in person though, it clicks. If I can see a guy do it, I can do it.

Sounds like it's probably similar for you. Except video works for you the way in-person works for me.

Another nice video would be: how women show signs of interest(IOI's).

Another one would be- calibration, being smooth and suave.

Those'd be other videos I'd need a gal to help me out on.

If I end up doing some man-on-the-street vids, I'll probably look for cute girls I can get to help out on these, and just tell them what to do. Plus ask them how they usually emote in XYZ situation with a guy ("All right, pretend I'm X. How're you going to look at me?").

I need to get a portable charger for my phone if I do that though. This thing burns through its battery in like 10 minutes of filming.

Infield videos of going direct in an approach.

Infield videos of going in-direct in an approach.

Sure.

If I start doing in-fields (e.g., if/when we cross that 10K subscriber mark), I'll make a note to do videos on those.

I like the idea of setting out to teach a specific thing through the in-field: "All right guys, today we're demonstrating screening. I'm going to approach some girls, and I'm going to screen them on various things. Here's what to look for during the interactions. We'll also highlight it in the video every time I screen, and I'll highlight for you how the girl reacts."

Again, we've gotta get the subscriber base up high enough, and the income high enough, to warrant the extra work these types of videos take (you're basically reserving an entire day to in-field if you're going to do it... in terms of the mental preparation, the setup, coordination with the sound guy, video guy, etc., travel to the spot, dead time while you're circling around looking for sufficiently cute girls to approach, time to run any instant dates you take girls out on or decompress after the session, etc.).

If we can get it where I want to get it to, though, I will do it :D

My questions aren't related to pickup, but I think they're valid anyway.

I'm an aspiring writer. I was wondering how you selected your niche and what kind of education/prior writing experience you had before making this website. I'm also curious to hear the work that goes into it from someone who writes for a living.

Hi Chase,

Thanks for the reply. Totally understand on not discussing the best cities. I've heard of places getting overfished and souring venues for everyone. Advice on scouting would be great. Ex. ...Teach a man to fish... Who knows, there might be some undiscovered gems out there!

@Humanoutofelement,

As a matter of fact, I have discussed writing quite in-depth before, in several older threads on this forum.

Here they are...

On my origins as a writer:


On structuring your writing:


Hope these help!


@Train,

Oh, there are absolutely always undiscovered gems.

It's the best thing about travel, at least for me.

Usually why I avoid places that are overly popular and check out places a bit more off the usual path (I've done Milwaukee, Kuching, and Osaka, for example, but I've so far skipped visiting Miami, Madrid, and Hong Kong).

Many more-off-the-beaten path spots aren't that great. But just sometimes, you discover hidden gems most other guys walk right by...


@ZacAdam,

Tiktok Premium. I mean Girlschase Premium! :XXXXX

That would be the premium package indeed ;)

Hey @Chase, I would definitely pay to see how you overcome strong objections (“I need to go”, “I just don’t feel it”, “It’s that you’re such a nice guy” and the like).

I don’t care if it is acted, I think you got the skills to show how the vibe and body language works in real life.

Openings can be difficult but there’s ton of examples...but closings is what I would really love to master.

I would love something like this, would definitely subscribe.

I've read a large chunk of girlschase articles and one of the big things I always wanted to understand in more detail was how much emotion should you display with a woman. I know Hector made a video on that but I'd love your take on that too.

Another thing is facial expressions, there are a few good examples but a video showing your personal way of making the expressions would be nice too.

Something to look into would be trends in dating for the next decade. I know the future is hard to predict, but the pandemic changed the social landscape quite a bit.

Things like trends in online dating, where new dating hotspots would be (where people are moving, or where moving would be most productive) seem prevalent for this moment in time.

Great suggestions here. Thanks fellas.

@uriel,

Just outlined a pair of videos based on your suggestions. They should be on the site when we premiere.


@Elwa & @RustinKohle,

I like all these ideas. I've got them noted down -- will get some outlines spun up for them.


Cheers for these,
Chase
