    Have some sort of trait (hilarious, sarcastic, amusing, entertaining, informative) and MASTER it. Be unique in some way from the rest of the YouTube content creators.

    Other than that, best of luck and STAY PERSISTENT.

    Make sure your channel looks professional. I find video description also really important!
    Most important tip as WeKnowJoey said, stay persistent. Your subscribers want to know when you upload a video!

    Acting like a complete moron seems to be all the rage.

    Yep. It seems like if you're constantly screaming and have the maturity level of an 8 year old, people will watch you.

    Well I'll try to be professional but I'm going to have fun as well, I don't plan on screaming like an idiot as I want to be genuine and show my actual reactions. I'm actually not even doing this campaign for cash but rather for enjoyment as I enjoy playing games anyway.

    Watch out for copyright strikes. Some gaming companies don't like you uploading their content for let's plays etc. Usually best to try get permission first.

    You're so naive.

    Instead of recording your own videos, go ahead and download all videos from pewdiepew and do a voice-over.

    Youtube is flooded to death with gaming channels, not telling you to not do it. But be aware that there are who knows how many gaming youtube channels.


    What is youtube? A video platform, what is the primary reason someone may watch a video? A source of information or entertainment.

    Not telling you to go insane, but turn it up a bit since you are in fact trying to entertain people.

    i would suggest after few weeks you contact few youtubers with your videos to get a view, subs boost if you get lucky somebody actually gives you a shoutout

    Making a collab with other gamers is also a good idea.

    Second thought..... What you should do is not make videos at all, but give the 14 year old gaming community what they want. I'm talking about you go to a college campus or make a creepy craigslist posting of looking for female models. Find big breasted ones and cut to the chase that you will edit, market, write absurd sh!t for her to say and all she has to do is show up and the first videos it will be X given to her initially and it will also be a percentage share.

    Have her play in a bikini or do something out there to get that skrilla. I personally just wish I didn't have decency to do this myself.
