Thanks for the sub! The problem is, i haven't found a lot of good zelda games to play... because i think youtube frowns upon Emulators being used for recording games. Im looking around for things though!Avoid reddit! All the beginner gamer video creators I've known have found they get trolled, downvoted, and ridiculed.
I'm no expert at only 91 subs, but there are a few things I wanted to mention.
When you first said Ultimate Chicken Horse, I was stoked because I love watching gameplay of that! But your channel focuses on guides. A guide here and there is ok, but include gameplay! Collab and have a blast! My fav UCH vids are of 4 gamers playing around, laughing, doing evil things to each other--THAT'S what people are looking for! Have FUN with the game!
The second thing I noticed immediately was that, when I saw your icon and banner with the Triforce and a name including Hyrule, is that you don't actually play Legend of Zelda. So the branding is kind of...off. If you're going to have a name and logo like that, you HAVE to have a majority of Zelda games. There are more vids on UCH than any other games on your videos tab, but you're name says Hyrule...? You might have to rebrand or focus on LoZ.
Hope that helps, and here's a sub because I love UCH, LoZ, and supporting fellow gamer Youtubers! ;D
I've never used Reddit to advertise my YouTube channel, but I don't think I'll be using it anytime soon because of reports of trolls and harassers from that outlet.Most of my views come from Reddit, when i make guides for games, and share them there. Is there a better place to share my content to gain subscribers than Reddit?
Be careful of any game from Nintendo. Make sure you take a look at their policies. I personally will not play any Nintendo games on my channel because Nintendo is...less than unpleasant...regarding their games.Thanks for the sub!

How do you use Twitter/Instagram for getting your videos out there?Reddit is a two sided blade and also reddit doesn't really promote advertising either. I know it doesn't stop people from doing it, but eehh xD
I've tried using Reddit before and it certainly got me views, but nothing else. No likes, no comments, no subscribers. So I stay off of Reddit honestly and I use twitter and instagram more to get my videos out.
I didn't think LinkedIn would be an option in terms of advertising your videos. Pretty interesting to know now that it's a viable option.I use LinkedIn whenever I post a new video.
My last post got 290 views from my feed. I don't know if that directly relates to YouTube views, but I guess it helps.
Rule 1: don't spam!How do you use Twitter/Instagram for getting your videos out there?
I've noticed this. I got buried just because of that "no advertising" echo-chamber. It's not a fun place to post a subthread, the user experience in my view is poor.Reddit is a two sided blade and also reddit doesn't really promote advertising either. I know it doesn't stop people from doing it, but eehh xD
Instagram is harder to promote a video, or link, since there is no option to parse your URL's.How do you use Twitter/Instagram for getting your videos out there?
To answer this question, the answer is yes. There are two ways with this: Post promotion (Ads), or Profile promotion via Promote Mode.Twitter also allows you to promote your posts, or tweets in this case, but I don't know if that costs money or not.
