Here's the situation... I basically would love to get a shitload of views (100,000+ on a few videos), but it seems that my channel is lost in the millions upon millions. I know that I could have videos such as "sexy girl strips infront of a policeman", with a thumbnail of a sexy woman stripping..and then when they click, they're fooled into watching me play a guitar. That's something I "could" do - I'm really just not manipulative like that. I've been doing sub4sub for about 3 days straight and have gotten close to 300 subscribers by doing just that. But this won't get me the thousands upon thousands of views I want. It might, but it'll take like 4 years :S I'm uploading acoustic covers weekly (just started doing so), but I'm eager..I'm doing the youtube sub4sub grind daily and it's not satisfying lol So...the question is, is it really worth it to manipulate people into watching your videos? Seems to me they'd just get pissed off and just give me negative attention, something I don't want. What are your guys' thoughts?
