Views should definitely get back to normal in January, barring some huge twist of events lol
I think people are super anxious and a friend of mine who runs a prepper/survival type of a channel has seen views go up dramatically for reasons mentioned too!
Has anyone ever tried any SMS marketing to subscribers? I'm thinking about trying one service now that lets a viewer text message to a number and we can now send them messages via text. Does anyone else have any experience with this? good/bad?
I always wondered - how do the bigger creators (who put out rapid content after content) go on and on without burning out? I am struggling vastly with this issue so please any tips would be amazing!
Now For those well into the 5-figures of subscribers and up, what tends to be your biggest...
I typically have a very hard time coming up with ideas for new content and new videos. As my brain gets maxed out lol. I've heard the best way is to simply ask your subscribers to tell you what they'd like to see come from you content-wise.
Curious how specifically are you guys asking this from...
Does anyone have any experience doing cross recommendations with other youtubers to get traffic for each other? So an example would be to mention to your subscribers to check out another Creator (your friend and their channel) and that friend would do the same for you.
I've even done this with...
Far easier now for content creation. Terribly hard to get views though and the algo is much less forgiving on new creators in my honest opinion.
As they say, in the beginning, it was the creator that attracted people and now it's more the content/topic
To all wives and husbands out there, this may seem like a silly question but how have you persuaded your spouse to feel 100% OK with you putting up content that subscribers may misconstrue as a "hot" or "seductive"?
For example, I've always had a hidden passion for dance and have been placing...
Has anyone really pushed hard with their Merch at your fans? I have a friend who bombards their merch on her gaming channel a LOT and claims subs need to be promoted at all the time to buy the Merch. what's been your experience with this? Do fans get overly annoyed if you do it too much?
Gotcha and when you quoted only 1-3% engage in some action, did that specifically mean only 1-3% of subscribers will buy something from those emails? or did that mean only 1-3% will click through a link embedded in the email?
Seems low indeed
Interesting stats - and appreciate your thoughts!
So for me, I actually want to try it for two reasons specifically:
1) I want to be able to email announce to my subscribers when I've uploaded a new video or even right before to get them all excited about it in anticipation of my content. As a...
I've always been thinking of starting a mailing list, where I'd collect emails of my viewers. Maybe a link under my video descriptions to an email capture page
Has anyone tried this before? Why or why not
And secondly what % of Youtube channel subscribers normally will also subscribe to your...
As best practice for growth, what is everyone putting in their default description generally?
Or do you not use this feature?
I like it because it avoids me having to copy/paste for each video upload :-)
I have seen the best thumbnails have been very curiosity driven images. This is my measure of ensuring thumbnails get a good CTR - always figure out what is the super curiosity factor for your niche.
What have been your guys's best strategies for getting the best thumbnail clickthrough?
Very curious - what is everyone else struggling with the very most as a Youtuber?
For me, it's really just getting 1k subscribers. UGH even with decent content my friends say is good.
Would love to hear others' pains and frustrations as we may all run into the same headaches.
