    This will only help a handful of channels but i'd like to share something i did this week which has made my channel have an explosion of views and new subs.

    I asked a fairly popular twitter person who's connected the the subject of my vlogs to run a guest vlog for me, i said i'd do all the editing but i wanted there story for the day of there life. Now you could do something different maybe if your a gamer invite another youtube gamer to do a video for you, but you get the idea.

    Now this was a test guest video however i've decided to make it a feature, once every 6 weeks am going to feature another youtuber or someone with a following in the subject i cover "electric cars"

    Why did this work well ill put it down to a couple of things firstly this guest vlog was a woman, am a bloke so it opened me up to other people who might not of watched me.

    2) with her large following on twitter she was promoting the video 1 week before the event i think this added to an extra 2 subs per day above normal.

    3) it gives some variety to your channel its something new and exciting from others.

    how well is it currently doing well...
    since the guest vlogs went live on Saturday i've had a surge of subs and views every day since! my twitter following increased.

    if your interested guest vlogs was 2 parts on this playlist

    cheers both of you, since this post my subs and views are still climbing more and more, i've asked 4 other channels who should be my competition to take part and all enjoyed the first one so much they all agreed, these channels are MUCH larger than me also so am hoping some of there subs might rub off on me, its totally different from a colab video, as the video "meat" doesn't even feature me

    Hmm, now that's different. Thanks for sharing this.

    Oh, I get it! It's totally a guest vlog. You're nowhere near the video. That makes sense.
