    Hello all,

    Started a new channel which is going to be gaming.
    I was wondering how best to advertise/promote my channel and videos for free.

    I have only been going a month, and don't want to do any of the scripts/macros to generate fake content.

    Even any advice on my channel would be appreciated.
    My channel is TheGcgamer2014 - One of my most popular is found by typing 'The Forest - Best camp ever'

    I have a few decent videos.

    Let me know any advice or anything else i can do :D

    Making good videos and posting them on game forums, reddit, comment section of games sites etc.

    Just comment on other videos, Yahoo Answers, Gaming Forums. Give shit away for free on the forums, offer free advice, link in signature... it's manual work, but it will get you super targetted traffic and subscribers.

    ### set up google Alerts for all related keywords and engage those listings as soon as they pop up.

    good luck.

    edit:

    Set up Facebook Fanpage that shows all your vids and do all the above but via Facebook.

    Reddit/game forums.

    I don't know if the buying G+ +1's for a comment will put it in the popular comments section on YT still but if that works you can comment on popular gaming videos to generate traffic.

    You should record your gameplay with more FPS bro. Anyways, just go around and comment. That's free and easy.

    Reddit is full of trolls they will dislike anything you put up even if it's good. So don't post your videos on reddit without disabling the ratings button 1st You have been warned!

    Also how best to get viewers to turn into subscribers.

    Have an average of 100 views a day. 3044 over the last 30 days and only 8 new subscribers in that time.

    I have annotations, I make sure i ask every video etc.
