    Hey my name is Yuval,
    i started a YouTube channel a month ago in which i do one hours video of me not moving and just staring at the camera while in every video something else happen.

    this is my channel : UCL570bLsQp-CcmnCZaLFwvA

    yesterday i uploaded a new video of me just smiling for an hour like Benjamin Bennett does for 4 hours if someone knows who he is

    this is the video :

    I am writing this thread because i don't know a better place in the internet to talk about this subject and i really need a second opinion, my initial goal with this channel is the same as everybody - to grow, get subscribers and earn from it (and also a personal experiment but that not relevant)
    BUT i'm posting videos and getting no views/feedback/subs - If that was a normal channel than i could just continue upload videos but uploading these kind of video without anyone seeing them is pretty silly.....

    so my question split into 3
    • do you have any ideas how i can advertise my channel so people will know about this (not talking about the content of the videos)
    • do you think i should continue doing this and hoping someday something will happen or that just not worth it (do take into consideration the time i'm "wasting" on each video - i don't have problem with that part) -
    i would say that the downside are :
    1.Social (if i am doing this and only my relative know me this is pretty stupid)
    2.asking someone to help me in each video
    • i thought that if a website/blog that talk about funny/weird new videos/trends would make a post about me it might help - any ideas how to make that happen ?

    Thank you so much if you read my thread, this subject is important to me right now !!!

    Make about 500 of these over the course of 2 years. Then post a link to your channel on Reddit titled, "This guy's been making hour long staring videos for 2 years and only has 25 subscribers. The videos may be dumb, but his dedication is incredible."

    Yeah but is it worth it ? i don't believe so
    If this is my strategy i should really stop, and use my time differently - don't you agree ?

    You man really dont know how viral thing works, no one gonna watch a 4 hour or 2 hour long video, people will at max spend 3 mins to see your content. And as rightly said here, no one gonna tell you the secret in open forum. But i just told you one thing, so take que and start again.

    it was only the title of the thread, my real question was how can i make people see this and what do you think on the idea in general.
    but i'm realizing that even if i could make it popular it wont be big enough in order it to be worth my sacrifices (maybe)

    ''but i'm realizing that even if i could make it popular it wont be big enough in order it to be worth my sacrifices (maybe)'' - the sooner you will realize that - the better.

    If you insist on viral videos, this is the first step:
    The only exception I can think of is Kony 2012, although I still doubt people watched the whole thing.

    rank your video for some well searched keywords should work

    Yeah unless you have a glamour part or very exclusive funny part in the video I doubt if you will get noticed anytime soon.

    Throw it on reddit with a clever title.
