@Damo’s Paintings made some great points..
For me, in my genre..
5-7 mins is perfect for me.. 3-4 minute retention rate..
Occasionally I'll pop out a video 10-12 minutes long but retention rate is still similar 4-5 minutes..
Just a question..
If I go into an old video of mine that's previously been released, I am allowed to reschedule it for release again in the future..
Has anyone done this?
Will previous view counts and likes remain?
I had issues in the past with my ex.
I am into training, gym, boxing etc and used my instagram to share progress and follow others for motivation.
My ex was very insecure and I ended up giving up on the posts.
But my current wife is leagues above me so she doesn't have an issue with it. :)
Just had a look at your channel.
Sorted the videos by most viewed.
One of your videos has had 74k views!
A couple with just the guitar tabs have 4-5k views..
Maybe go back to similar videos like those?
I was lucky I guess...
I was in a few relevant Facebook groups and made a presence for myself before starting the channel..
Once I'd done up a few videos, shared them in a few groups, I cracked 100 subs pretty fast, it was getting to 200 that was the harder part for me..
I have a Facebook group.
Not fully focused on promoting my YouTube channel but as a little community group to share stories, pictures, etc relative to my genre..
Only 400 members but it's a good little community and I'm sure it has helped my channel in a way, but it wasn't fully intended for...
I've had a few shout-outs and given a few.
Easiest way in the community I'm in, is to create an interesting "Tag" series..
Tagging a few other reviewers, they'll mention you back in their video.
There is always a heap of tag videos in my genre going around so everyone supports each other...
Is anyone familiar with Storyfire.com ?
I randomly stumbled across it recently but don't know too much.
I've seen some comments claiming it to be the next YouTube/Instagram combo but I can't see much value in it myself..
Initially to share my passion and collection of fragrances.
I'd noticed there was only a handful of Australian Fragrance reviews among a crowd of 10's thousands of other fragrance reviewers.
Thought i'd try my luck... Adding an Aussie twist I guess..
One 500ml can of Monster in the morning for me.. 160mg of caffeine...
At my office desk..
Then about 11 hours later, a preworkout drink before heading to the gym..
Approx 200mg of caffeine..
That's plenty for me each day :)
