The Ultimate Guide to Improving/Growing Your Channel/Blog

Written by , Posted in Style

Calling all YouTubers and Bloggers! My most frequently asked questions are usually pertaining to growing a YouTube channel, for example: getting subscribers, getting views, starting a channel, how to deal with hate, etc! I’ve also had a ton of questions directed to my tumblr about what the best first video is and such! So I’ve decided to answer every YouTube/blog related question that I could come up with/have ever been asked to hopefully offer some advice and tips for those of you who find yourselves struggling to up your view count or start a channel! I can’t guarantee millions of subscribers or free products being sent to your door due to your blogging success, but I can promise you that these tips will help improve the chance of getting more views and in turn becoming more popular! (Because in all reality, we all want our blog/youtube child to be watched and read). I’ve also targeted the times in the video that help separate the topics (cause this bad boy got a TON of information in it). So again, I apologize for the length, but I seriously just tried to cram in as much advice and information into one video as possible.
