    Hi Guys,


    First off, if this is in the wrong section I apologise and it can be moved to a more relevant place. Secondly, I will try to keep this is as short and to the point as possible, so here goes.


    I've been doing youtube for two and a half years now, the legitimate way and although it was working on a small consistent basis, for the last six months I've been stuck in a rut where my views have dipped and subscribers have slowed down. I recently started looking at SEO companies and Social Media Specialists to see if they could help my channel/videos get more exposure. I got a company saying they will charge me £150 (GBP) per month to help my channel/video rise. Upon doing more research I found an article saying any company only taking £200 or less per month for SEO work will not do a good job. While also looking at the people per hour website I've noticed a lot of people offering three thousand views for roughly £10 which they say will be real human, high retention, safe views (some even say Adsense safe but I would never risk that).


    The questions I ask to you guys are the following:


    Is it worth me hiring an SEO/Social Media Specialist company? And if so is £150 too cheap to expect good results? My main concern is that they would just buy views/likes/comments for dirt cheap then charge me the £150 like they've done a good job


    Do any of you guys here buy views? And if so, is it safer than before to buy them without your video getting removed or banned? Do these real human views actually exist or are they pulling a fast one and using bots?


    Last question. If buying views, would it be better to buy a bulk amount (e.g. 50,000) to try and get your video on first page suggested or is it better to do say 3,000 views per video for a while to get high retention so the videos get placed in more suggested videos with regards to the relevant keywords?


    Thanks for your time, I appreciate any help I can get on this situation.

    I am looking for stock market related products(stock trading software, educational course, anything that's not stale and old) as add ons for my site.
    Im unsure the best place to post this request so if im in violation of terms please direct me. My site is being revamped now but Im getting great traffic, Im not even sure how its getting there as I paid for some at stumbleupon at first as well as twitter and facebook buy have not paid for any lately. Im really amazed at the amount of traffic. Im not a website developer so I have to hire all that out.
    Can anyone direct me to good higher end as well as lower cost stock market related products? Much appreciated.
    I also have some other projects Im working on and one that is super niche with fairly low competition. I might consider an equity stake or partner ship with someone that has the skillsets that I do not .

    If the SEO company knows what they are doing and if your ROI is expected to exceed your investment then go for it, otherwise just do your own stuff.

    Well I checked out the company and they seem to have some good reviews overall but the site doesn't seem to have anyway of verifying the reviews, so for all I know the company may have written the reviews themselves (site is reviewcentre.co.uk if I remember rightly, will edit the post and change if I'm wrong). I guess I'm just being a little paranoid but when I'm spending good money I really don't wanna waste it and potentially lose my channel from them using black hat techniques. I could copy and paste what they said to me so guys could tell me if they sound any good? They told me the general techniques they would be doing to build up my channel fan base. Won't be getting ROI on this for a long while, maybe never. This is more a long term, gamble investment to be honest.

    Try SEOboss or something like that. I'll have to go back and see if I can find that page. It was a wonderful site, almost like fiverr
