Hey guys ive noticed there seems to be alot of threads here asking 'why isnt my video getting views' and other similar titles that i can copy and paste the same answer too So ive decided to share some wisdom that i have learn't and/or been taught 1st of all ensure you are creating content you enjoy. ive had loads of videos ive recorded, came to edit and then scrapped because it wasnt the kind of thing i would watch Make sure you keep doing what you enjoy and sooner or later like minded people will find you and go OH HEY this guy plays stuff i like Find other channels as in your early days 90% of your subscriber base will come from fellow content creators, so become active on similar channels, or even ones completely different DO NOT SPAM THEM WITH 'HEY CHECK MY VIDEOS OUT' or anything similar that will get you ignored Create conversations with your new contacts, get to know them. Twitter is a great place for this Forums, such as here and even /r/Letsplay (the LP subreddit) is a great place to meet new people and talk to like minded people and get advice, pointers etc (Just make sure you have your armor on Reddit can be a VEEERRRRYY touchy place) What ever you do, DO NOT link dump on Reddit Its highly frowned uponTrust me i learnt that the hard way Get handy with Photoshop or what ever your picture editor is, find a style for your thumbnails. Dont expect your title to always sell your video, dont just let your video 'talk for its self' Remember that your thumbnail is the very 1st thing people will see so make sure it is flashy and captive but isnt too 'busy' or give too much of the video away. Tts a fine art to master Finally and most importantly Research and learn SEO (Search Engine Optimization) the sooner you learn how to use it the better. This is what Youtube runs on and its a douche! To help with this VidIQ (a free chrome extension) can REALLY help with this to an extent, it helps you see what kind of tags people are using so you can see how the relate But dont try and steal there tags you'll rarely get a look in, instead try and find unique and different tags that will help you But until then, remember youtube takes ALOT of patience, i mean ALOT, nothing happens overnight it takes time, you will be grinding your face into your desk at times but just keep enjoying it and your day will come because your viewers can ALWAYS tell if your not having fun yourself Should you ever need any proof of all of this.... check out @YoungBonesGaming these boys have taught me so much. they have cracked all of this! Please by no means think that this is it! If you have any more to add to this then feel free to add it on.
