    Hey guys,

    Been a member at this forum the past couple of days and this seems to be an awesome community!

    I run a channel, linked below.
    User: ACarrotTree

    And I wanted to see if any of you guys would be interested in taking a look, seeing if you like the content I make you know, like, comment, subscribe! :D

    Also, I wanted to ask if anyone has experience in marketing YouTube gaming channels, and what tools they would recommend! I have used the share video function in Tube Toolbox using only drone accounts but that got my prior channel banned! 4200 Subscribers, 100K Video Views! I was so angry ;(

    Currently I am doing TweetAdder 3 (ACarrotTree) follows, and follower welcome DM's! And adding contacts on YouTube using TubeToolbox!

    Anyway, I wanted you guys what you would recommend, something that would make the channel grow but not risk it getting banned!

    Thanks in advance!

    the best thing would be to keep making quality videos and not use any tools just do good SEO on videos with catchy titles and stuff like that.... spamming will not help you that much or adding contacts....the best thing you can do is find other youtubers or community channels where to upload some good videos and gain subscribers from there.... i am also at the beginning with youtube and have like 530 subs and about 72k total views....here on BHW are a lot of youtubers from the gaming niche so we should make something together....it would benefit to all of us...

    If you can write video game reviews then I can help you attract more views and visits to your channel. PM if interested

    These are quality videos and I have no doubt that you will succeed in this if you continue to work at it. Only thing I would suggest is to use vagex to get more views. Also try and promote your channel or videos with a few fiver gigs. This is a difficult thing to get into because of the saturation but you are posting quality videos with fantastic audio clarity.

    Send me a PM I think I can help you out a little more to get more traffic

    I think you have a solid, easy to digest approach to your narration. With that as your strength + your editing skills I believe you should showcase some controversial games strengths and weaknesses to get a boost. One such game I have been playing is The War Z *ducks* You can check out my channel DashTheDingo. Now I may have had a boost in views artificially but I get a steady stream of about 1k+ organic views a day as far as I can tell because of my keywords. I may have ruined my acc for full partnership but I hope this helps. Also the main video... I hired a guy on fiverr to poke fun at the owner/creator of war z. Gotta love fiverr for a goodd gig.

    Right, But how is it best to do giveaways without comign across like a viewhore? And, how does this benefit the channel? Do the likes, comments and favs by the viewers bring in new subscribers?

    Thanks for the feedback and help, yeah. Collaborating on YouTube is really beneficial, but it is extremely hard to do, you cant go to the big guys they wont see your request (or don't care) and finding smaller youtubers is near impossible, good thing we have this awesome forum to help us out!)

    Do you know of any community gaming channels that would be fitting/beneficial for me and my content? ;)

    Could you help me to understand what fiver is and does? And how it benefits me and what I have to do. I checked it out, but was a bit puzzled. I cant send PM's as of yet (new member) but please do PM me some advice! I will soak up every and any piece of knowledge!

    Definitely worth a sub!


    I'm also one of those gaming channels, but i try to upload entertaining stuff, but to me, my videoes looks like trash, and if wondering about my subscribers amount, i got them from my previous channel, well not every subscriber i have, i on had like 1500 on the other, plus i did sub for sub, which seem's not to be that worth, because they aren't even looking at your stuff. //my bad.

    But, duo commentaries is also an good idea, and sometimes twice entertaining than a single person doing it, and then maybe his subscribers will subscribe to your channl, and going on, like a free promotion for your channel.

    If you want sincere and honest advice, dont post your channel in BHW. I've seen a video that got deleted in less than an hour for using bhw methods. Even if you didn't

    TubeToolbox will not get your account banned if you use it correctly. The add contact feature of TT is vastly underrated in my opinon. I used it to add 8000+ people a day on my old gaming channel and over the course of a month a grew to over 1000 subscribers and got partnered. Unfortunately it turned out gaming commentary wasn't for as I thought it took too much work to maintain.

    But if you are more serious I highly reccommend sticking it out with Tube Toolbox and ONLY using the add contact feature. Nobody has EVER been banned for using TT in this way :)
