strive to get better at what you do and work hard

find your own style, experiment, think of things you want to do and do it

Learn editing if you haven't

Having a social media page could also be good

And Most of all: Be Patient, big youtube channels do not often grow on one day but in a span of years ( Jontron, Pbg, Pewdiepie Etc.)

if you are doing it for the numbers (subs, views etc...) that in itself is a bad start

sorry buddy but it takes hard work and if ur willing to do that - your audience will come

checked out your videos and they couldn't make me stay for more than 1 minute.

plus, growing on youtube isn't easy. don't expect a thousand subscribers just because you uploaded one video.


Thank you what do you think I could do to improve my YouTube videos!

Here's an idea..... don't do it

If you look for monetization, subs, views, don't waste ur time. Unless you feel the honesty and hardwork that you put into your videos.

YouTube is a giant battle ground, and if you haven't secured your spot now, best of luck for your future endeavours.


Not gonna lie at first I did it for fame and recognition but after a while it became fun and I forgot all about that stuff ya know!

So I looked at your channel and there is nothing of value on there. Why do I as a random internet denizen care about your opinions on anime or watching you do some personality test? I don't nor would I ever look at it outside of answering this question.

If you want to have people go to your channel create something of value or something that is so shit people go there just to see how bad it is. Look at this dude and the stuff he creates it makes you want to watch it:

https://www.youtube.com/user/JelloApocalypse/videos
https://www.youtube.com/user/HarryPartridge/videos

This is one of harry's most popular videos and it was one of his lowest effort videos:

Thank you for giving me feedback so I can see how to improve and also try learn from others too

Top list video are extremely common so unless you are BuzzFeed or another well established channel they probably aren't going to get much attention. To be honest personality tests aren't all that interest of a topic for videos.

I'd suggest you flesh out your opinions more before hand and create an outline to look at while recording to keep you on topic and sound less rambly.

Editing, download your images before hand instead of screen capping your browser, it will look a lot more professional. If you must screen cap, try OBS it's free and it won't insert "trial version" messages in your videos. The audio sounds tinny, so may want to either check your levels or your microphone cause it's either clipping or the mic is broke or of poor quality.

Thank I'll see how to improve my quality of vids cause I focus on quality than quantity.

You're clearly a beginner. Subscriptions don't fall from the sky, and the anime community is not obligated to support you willy-nilly. Earn support through your merits and effort. It will take years for beginners to rise to any semblance of popularity, should it ever happen. Take note that most of the notorious, "big" channels have been around for, at least, five years. Nothing happens overnight, and YouTube is Darwinistic. Not everyone will ever become famous, and even famous channels do crash and burn. You have thousands upon millions worth of competition.

You gave me a goosebumb there but i've decided not to give up!It may take years and alot of effort but I still have plenty of time!

Well, watching your videos, I have a couple of thoughts.

First to reiterate, sub growth is semi exponential from what I see. The pace of growth is real slow at first then increases over time as more watchers suggest it to more people. Some you tubers took years for their channels to get their subscriber numbers. So don't worry.

There is nothing wrong in doing it for fame, or for the numbers, or too make money. All of those are legitimate goals even if they don't fit the fluffy "for the art!" reasons that people like to talk about. The real important thing is that you want to do it, and that you are willing to work hard for it. After that, just remember that success at things like this is a marathon.

Next if you want advice on how to make your youtube account successful, the Crunchyroll community in general probably wont be as much help as other people. It is a good community but we are not all making youtube videos. If you want to know how to be successful, ask the people who are already living the life you want to live. Go to Anime content makers like Grakada and gigguk or whoever is your favorite, and ask them if you can talk to them. Your sight seems to have a blogger/How to style to it, so if you have and favorite craft channels or video bloggers, you might ask them too. Finally successful youtubers sometimes make videos giving advice on making videos, so watch those. These guys have already been successful in the field you want to be successful in, so they would know much better than most of us what you need to do.

Good, do it for fun. Recognition comes with time and your ability to capture an audience, but it should be never expected.

You'd be surprised just how much help one person really provides. If doing something for fun makes you happy, then it should show in your videos. Just like anything we do, it will show in our work.

The best we can do is to follow it, do not rely on it. Maybe one day others might want you to rely on it

Wish you the best of luck. You just have to find your niche, something that you like making that others like watching.

So I go on YouTube and saw man videos from anime YouTube channels and decide to make a channel like them.I make the channel now at 119 subs https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQicjbBURrlNZacBu2rl9CQ but It still won't grow after that,so are anime YouTube channels a minority or are my videos shit?I made a new vid hoping to get more views and subs and nothing changes like wtf is the anime community that unsupportive or is my channel shit.


Hi. I've moved this over to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum. I see you have now started a thread in Enthusiasts' corner as well, which is fine. But General Discussion really isn't the place for requesting advice or doing self-promotion.

Good luck with the channel!
