Are you struggling with your gaming channel, this blog is for you.
Hey! Do you want to know how to get your first 100 subscribers on your gaming channel?
For this blog post/video, I explain how to get your first 100 subscribers on a gaming channel. These things helped me get to 100 subscribers. I feel most advice on how to get 50 or 100 subs doesn’t really work for a gaming channel. Different niches need different.
1. Upload consistently
The key to getting 100 subscribers on your gaming channel is to upload constantly. Plan out your content. When you are not uploading regularly, it will be hard for the viewer to know when your next upload is going to be. Here is a suggestion, If you cannot keep up due to bus life, hire an editor to edit your videos. I am open for Freelance Editng. I post clips of my videos on Instagram, Twitter, and Tiktok.
Learn more on my hire me page, I also list services I am open for. Refer to my IG, Twitter, and Tik Tok for samples/ a better understanding.
If you want to grow your channel constant uploads are where its at. When it comes to hiring your first editor, whether it be me or someone else communication is key. Make sure you make it clear what you want in the video.
This is important. If you want to grow your channel, networking is where its at. Promote on social media sites like Twitter, Instagram, Tik Tok, or whatever platform makes you happy. Joining groups related to your topics. Look for subreddits that allow promotion. This subreddit allows promotion.
This can separate you from your competitors. The viewers can like your editing style. Guess what engages me as a viewer? The editing style!
Here is a funny edits video that I did. Everyone edits differently. Having a different style is OK.
4. Having Something Different On Your Channel
I’ve explained why I don’t like only doing one topic on your channel. Only doing one topic may cause burnout for instance. However, if you, mix things up that helps a bunch. I get bored quickly doing the same thing over and over. It will show through the viewer. You can have subcategories. Say you are a gaming channel. You do thumbnail tutorials, editing tutorials, counting down games like Roblox or Minecraft, etc.
5. Take A break
The way I take my breaks. if I need a break, I’ll upload Youtube shorts to keep my channel active. I’d say reduce your uploads for the duration of your break. Having an inactive channel will make it harder to get your viewers back when you return. Benefits of taking breaks they allow you time to plan more content. They prevent burnout. Your viewers can catch up on uploads they missed. Allowing viewers enough time to catch up help. Let’s say it’s exam season and viewers missed 2 weeks’ worth of uploads. Lowering my uploads to once a week allows the viewer more time to catch up
Thumbnails are important. If you do not have a good thumbnail people will overlook your videos. Canva.com is free and easy to use. Here is a tutorial I did on how to make Roblox thumbnails. Different games need different styles.
7. Avoid Mixed Content
Hey, do you want to know what else is key to reaching your first 100 subscribers on your gaming channel? Niching down! If you’re doing gaming content and they teaching your viewers how to make cake will confuse them as to what your channel is about. At times I like taking a break from gaming content.I took a break from YouTube for a month, I didn’t upload during that time. As a result of not uploading for a month, it was hard getting back into the swing of things.
Today you post make-up then tomorrow you’re showing people how to change a battery will divide the audience. For a random example, I look up how to fix something and come across your channel, I like how you showed me how to change the battery, and I sub. Videos after that are about makeup which I am not into.
As a result, unsub because I saw the battery tutorial which led me to believe that’s what your channel is about.
8. Having a Schedule
Having a schedule is important as well. A schedule keeps everything organized. Schedules help your audience know when to expect a video from you. If you post this week and then another video next month, this will confuse your audience and they will not know when to expect a video from you.
9. Tag your channel name
If someone searches your channel, other videos alongside it will show up along with your Youtube channel. I suggest creating a tag line in case someone uses a similar name. Table Top Tom-the home for board games. Having that tagline makes finding you easier in the vent someone has a similar name.
Don’t t expect Youtube to promote your videos? You cannot expect to upload a video and the views come flooding in like a river. You have to promote your videos to push them out in front of more people.
Branching out will help. If your viewers use Twitter and you’re only promoting on Facebook, there is your problem.
Vid.me was a good Youtube alternative. i didn’t quit Youtube for Vid.me. I stayed on both sites. Unfortunately, Vid.me shut down because they couldn’t afford to keep the site running.
Always branch out
grab my free start a YouTube channel guild. I go over the things you need to start a Youtube channel on a budget. You don’t have to spend a ton of money on your channel. I managed to get to 100 subs in the video without needing the most expensive things.
Minus my PS4, gaming laptop, and non-gaming laptop, every other piece of equipment. Ringlight, webcam, microphone each piece being under 100 bucks. As of today, my channel is a 300 something sub and none of my equipment except my laptop and console and capture card didn’t spend over 100 dollars.
This is what I want to teach each and every new Youtuber.
