    Hey Everyone !
    My name is Yuval and in about a month ago i made a new YouTube channel that his niche is :
    ME Staring at my camera for 1 hour While something may happen
    My channel : youtube .com/ channel/ UCL570bLsQp-CcmnCZaLFwvA

    [​IMG]

    Ok ok i know this is weird but hey, it could be something (i hope)
    Now my question is : after understanding the idea of my channel do you think this kind of thing could work ?
    if so in what ways do you guys think i should advertise myself (i made a Facebook page already )

    I know i just need to be consistent but there have to be more i can do

    Love you all :)

    *BTW, this post is not meant to advertise my self, its really about hearing you opinion on the channel and what step should i take to promote it​

    i would work with contrasts. If you are still, then your environment, background has to be crazy. You cant stand there in your room with no action in the background and be still yourself. You gotta be where the action is AROUND YOU.

    Kids all over still love to play staring contests so yes I think it can work if there some sort of interaction with the user. Maybe live feeds would work well.

    Psychologists actually do a lot of research on this subject so you can study up on it for inspiration and ideas.

    Best wishes.

    hey, thanks
    The big question here is how do i make those kids to see my videos in the firstplace

    Yeah i thought about that, right now i just make sure that something will happen in the video (like a slap of flour or something) but taking the shooting outside to a crowded place is interesting but far more complex than my room

    But still the question about how do i make people see me remain unanswered

    Maybe you can hold staring contests/games and hand out some prizes to the winners. There are lots of different ways, only you can decide what is best for your channel. It's the big question for a reason.

    I would suggest bring in some more characters. Maybe girls any youtube video with girls seem to get more engagements even though they make no sense.

    Yeah i already thought about that, but see it's a weird thing to ask a girl to come and sit with me for an hour
    I have a friend that don't mind joining but even my 18 old sister don't want to do this shit :)

    Do you have an idea to make this channel reach to more people tho?

    Maybe Try looking for someone from college or craigslist maybe paid they just have to keep looking at the camera nothing less make that clear first.

    There are also many actors on upwork, fiverr, backstage, craigslist, facebook groups. You could make a casting and the winner is getting a price and that will get you hundreds of submissions.
