Dear friends, As you may tell by this awkward start i'm new to Black Hat World. (Do not shoot me if i do something wrong, I appreciate all possible critque) As i am a YouTuber for a few months now and gaining around 600+subscribers and 5k views in total i'm breaking my head on finding a way to gain popularity and exposure. I've been reading this YouTube section for a few hours now and i just felt like writing this thread since i saw there are a lot of kind people around here who'd give me some good advice. So as i've already said i'm looking to grow on YouTube. Everyone says the quality is pretty important and at this moment i'm satisfied with quality of video, audio and lighting. I know there is a huge grind to getting somewhere on YouTube but i just wondered if anyone has some great tips. Like should i try to collab with someone big? If so how should I do it? (Realistic view: No one with 50k subs and 10k+views on their videos is going to collab with me..) Trying blackhat ways like viewbotting a little bit for exposure? I don't feel like this since it's purely fake and i think it won't really generate a lot of new fans.. I promote my videos on Facebook and Twitter. These 2 generate like ALL of my views i guess.. It's a hard struggle but i try to talk to people everyday so they would find out my channel.. I believe there are a lot of experienced bigger YouTubers or friends of big YouTubers who could help me out. That's why i made this. I could send you my YouTube channel but i much rather talk to these people ^ in private. If you can help me please, comment on this thread or send me private message. A big big thanks to anyone reading this and helping me out, I hope you have a great day!
