Hi all! First, let me start by saying how much I appreciate this community and all the knowledge found here. I'm still relatively new in my internet marketing journey, and I'm sure the benefit to having found this forum so early will propel me leaps ad bounds further than I would have gone without it. I just recently started a Youtube channel (about a month ago) and have 7 videos currently up, with new videos every week. I'm looking to start implementing growth hacking soon, but I'd like to cover some bases before doing so, so I would love some answers to some questions I have. When it comes to buying views and likes, how reliable are the services in the MP? And do you have experience with them? Which do you recommend, if any? As my channel is so new, and I have not done any marketing for it yet, I only have about 40 subs, with the most views I have on a video being about 150. Whats a good starting point for a channel with such a low amount of subs? The channel and brand is tied to my name and face, so I'm looking to act on the side of caution. I am willing to take risks, but only those that are calculated. How do I best protect myself and my channel from looking "spammy"? These are my initial questions for the most part, and again, I appreciate any feedback that you can give. Please keep in mind, although I want to grow in size/viewership, I truly do care about my audience and providing people with good, quality content. That is my number 1 concern.
