    Hi there,

    I have a youtube channel in the "Survival Niche" and has over 1000+ subscribers. It is dead and the videos in there aren't getting views anymore. (Not demonetized or any other issues).

    So is it a Good Idea to repurpose it by adding videos in a completely different niche like "self help/ motivation"?

    It depends on how old account is.. if you have aged account thats a good sign. go for it start reproducing new content.

    It definitely is possible. I turned a dead channel that blew up from a lyric video into a new channel that just posts general informational videos. Have gained approximately 100 organic subs since doing so.

    You can try it but you don't have a big chance with this channel. I got a similar channel, tried the same thing but no success so far.

    People are more likely to subscribe if they see 1k subs

    If you’re going to repurpose it, you will need to rebrand it. Remove the old videos, change the graphics, etc.. It would be a confusing experience for viewers to see anything from the older channel, especially with such contrast between the niches lol.

    Having 1000 subs on a “new” channel will definitely help though. It allows you to look more legitimate instantly so others will be more likely to subscribe. You MAY lose some of the old subs, but who cares ya know? Still better than starting at 0, and those old subs weren’t doing anything else for you anyway.

    I said this one is better than starting from new. Not recomending new one.

    Just unlist / private your old videos, don't remove them yet, see how it's going with your new content. Good luck mate
