    Video Review Video about a new Ken doll. What can I do to engage viewers?

    Thank you for your feedback. I didn't realize that I was coming across as scripted. I do follow an outline of things that I want to say about the doll. I also talk a bit slowly sometimes because I'm thinking about what to say next. I see what you mean about the transition. I'll try not to use...

    Two Truths and a Lie Game

    Wrong. I did a solo trek through Europe in 2008. It think “I’ve been on an airplane” is the lie.

    Gear Question Need advice on acquiring a new setup - camera and mic

    Awesome, thanks...the Sony a6400 has higher video resolution, but also costs more, so something to consider. My thing is, if I'm going to upgrade, I don't want to have to do it too frequently. So I may as well go with the best available gear.

    Thumbnail Feedback Would you click on this thumbnail?

    Thanks. Yeah, the color of "Ken" is part of the brand, so I can't really change that. The background could be more muted. I chose this background because my other thumbnails have similar backgrounds, and I'm trying to stick to a particular aesthetic to have a consistent brand. That said, I have...

    Need Advice trailer or not ?

    Don’t you think it could cannibalize on the views of the actual full length video? I know the idea is to get your viewers excited or give them something to look forward to, but at the same time, people could just say “I’ve seen this” and move on to the next thing...I am, of course, just...

    Facebook Facebook Just For My YouTube Channel?

    I’ve had a similar experience. My official Facebook page barely gets any organic reach. I pretty much have to spend money on ads to get impressions on anything I post on the official page. However, through my personal account, I’ve been able to join Facebook groups that are in my niche, so I’ve...

    Instagram How can I get my Instagram followers to subscribe?

    It’s very difficult to get people to leave their preferred platform. I have over 5,000 followers on Instagram, and whenever I publish a new video, I post a Story on Instagram to let people know (and put a link to my new video in the bio). However, during the course of 24 hours that the story is...

    YouTube Help How often should I upload to get more people to come to my channel?

    It depends on the appetite that your audience has for your videos. For many, it seems that once or twice per week is enough to sustain a channel. There is also the idea that more uploads means more chances of getting discovered. However, you do need to give videos some "breathing room". I seem...
