    Also posted this in making money youtube forum, but thought guys here maybe able to help also.
    Hi Guys,


    I started my own youtube fitness channel in January. ALL content on the channel is mine, and i have not conducted in any black hat techniques.

    In early June I hit 1k subs. I used to get numerous subscribers a day, however id say the past month ive been getting maybe 1-3 subs a day, and this has recently slowed down in past days to just 1. I had really strong growth once I hit over 200, then when it got to just before 1k it started to slow down.

    If anything my video quality is now better than what it was when i first started making them, so im confused as to why its slowed down, especially to just 1 subscriber a day. I put a minimum of 4 videos up a week, with some weeks putting them up every day (it depends a lot on my schedule)

    I also have a website, same name as youtube channel. I put posts up on here at least once a week, although i need to pick a different theme as ive messed about with it that much, the site is currently in a mess. This isn't SO much of a concern atm, as i want to focus more directly on the Youtube channel.

    I am planning on doing a 1k subscriber special, where i will be giving away a free t-shirt and free sample supplements to subscribers to encourage people to share my channel name & subscribe.

    Any advice on what i should / could do? I don't know if i can link to my channel due to post count, but my channel is called shreddybrek.

    It probably has a lot to do with your videos not ranking as well as they used to. Although your post made it pretty clear that you haven't performed any BlackHat methods on your channel, it wouldn't hurt to buy a couple thousand retention views.

    You're probably thinking in to yourself "Egads! I will never stoop down to doing such a macabre act. I have dignity!" Well, let's be honest here. You don't have much of a choice here, and besides, retention views aren't even considered that BlackHat to begin with.
