Do we need to focus on one niche to get subscribers or focus on multiple content to attract many people of different interests.
I have failed to get a specific niche but I also dont understand why I am getting subscribers.
I am a little bit confused, what should I do to please these subscribers I have gained?

Personally my specific niche videos do better than if I venture out so I’ve been continuing with that + it’s also what I’m most interested in.

If your focus is growing your channel, then you should consider focusing on a single niche. If your focus is to have fun on YouTube and not so much on growth, then it's fine if you have multiple niche (just know that you won't grow as fast).

I've heard this take on it before but, I've also heard that making content outside of your niche can bring in new viewers to your channel when you're just starting off. Would you say this is a good approach?

I would tend to disagree with that. When you focus on one niche it makes it very easy to target a select audience. It is easier for YouTube to find the audience that is into that one topic. If you expand to say, two niches then you are not targeting two separate audiences. You are basically targeting an audience which enjoys both niches only. The majority of viewers who enjoy one topic and not the other are inherently going to stray away from your work as it does not fit the single thing they are looking for.

When I first started I didn't have a niche. I was just doing what came to mind. Then I made a video that took off. So I started making more videos like that video. However, I just tried something new last week, and that took off.

It is a tough question to answer. I personally don't want to be tied down to 1 thing. I have so many likes and things I enjoy. So what I decided is to make many videos like the first niche then sprinkle new things along the way. lol

I believe having a niche will attract more subscribers because they will receive what they expect whenever you post thereby increasing the retention rate

I couldn't help myself but had to subscribe, haha. I love the name and can't stop thinking about this one vid that's trending where the woman says ava-ca-dooo
