Before I even begin, just warning you that this will be long... TLDR at the bottom but it would be appreciated if you read everything. So for a while now I've wanted to make a more personal YouTube channel. In 2007 I made one about Origami, it got 1k subs and 200k total views, nothing special. The AdSense account got banned for reasons I don't know. It's been a while since I've contributed to YT, but I just loved the whole idea of YouTube and how great it would feel to be popular and have so much support from your fans. So I've decided to get back into it. Now I'm only 15 years old, and I'm not sure if I even have a chance. I mean, everyone hates kids my age before even giving them a shot, which is definitely demotivating. There's very few famous YouTubers my age, probably the most famous is Lohanthony but that's the only one I know that's my age. I'm a person who will never give up on something they are passionate on, so that will not get in my way. So I was thinking about what kind of a channel I could make that would be both enjoyable for me and my fans. I'm not the sketch type of person or anything like that. But I thought of something that nobody has really done yet, maybe there's a reason behind that but I'm not sure. It's a variation of vlogging, but not like going out and recording my life, because honestly, how interesting is a 15 year olds life? Exactly. I'm sure you guys are familiar with the YouTubers NigaHiga and PewDiePie. In addition to their normal sketch/gaming videos, they also do something that is probably my favourite aspects of their channels and where I got my idea from. Pretty much they ask their fans on Twitter for things they should do, also known as #DearRyan and #PewdsDoesEverything. The fans tell them some funny (plenty of weird ones too) dares or things to do and they do it, and it always ends up making me laugh so much, and it looks even more fun for them. If you don't understand what I'm talking about I highly suggest you search those on YouTube. I would LOVE to do that. You don't need to be creative or spend hours thinking of what to do, and it is probably the most fun you will have making a video. The problem is, you kind of need to be famous to be able to do that, which is why I'm assuming nobody has really tried making a channel just out of that. It sucks because I would need to create a whole different channel to get popular off that just to do this, but I ONLY WANT TO DO THIS! I would be doing this with a friend BTW. So there's what I would dream of doing, now here come the questions. Sorry I like to talk a lot so if you aren't asleep yet here we go: I would most likely start out just doing the things under their hashtags because I'm a nobody in YouTube. Nobody even knows I'm going to be doing this except for my friend so we really are nobody haha. Uhm sorry I couldn't think of a question for that... 1. What is the best way to promote myself? I've heard of TubeToolBox but you need to target people in a certain niche... The niche I'm in doesn't really exist. So would I target vloggers? 2. Should I be giving myself fake views/likes/subs? Or should I only do that to keep my friend motivated when it isn't going well? 3. What are some whitehat and blackhat methods of getting myself out there and how do I get popular? 4 What would be the best keywords to use in my title for this? This honestly is the question that has me thinking the most. Also need a channel name. 5. DO I EVEN HAVE A CHANCE? Considering the niche and my age. LASTLY, BE HONEST - WOULD YOU EVEN WATCH THIS? TLDR: I'm 15. I want to make a YT channel that is a variation of vlogging - viewers dare or tell me to do things. It's fun. Read the questions up there at least, because I can't summarise them.
