How To Get Your YouTube Channel Noticed.

I was recently asked:

“Hey William, how can I attract viewers to my YouTube channel?”

Network Card OldNow there are literally 100s of ways you can do this, but this is what I have been doing and has been working. I have business cards that are made with my website on them, my website has a link back to my YouTube channel. Here is an example of my “Networking Cards”. This is actually one of my old cards, but it demonstrates what’s on my networking cards. My new cards actually don’t have my YouTube channel on them. It’s a great way to also spread your business.

I am also active in several local Video and YouTube communities on Facebook. I stick with locally based communities mainly because they have less spam, and some stiff rules as well.

Reddit is also a great option. With Reddit I do not go with the YouTube and Video communities but with area’s like /r/Electronics. If you participate in the discussions on Reddit (of witch I admit that I am not very good at), then you tend to get a really good turnout when you post your RELEVANT content to the sub-reddits.

All-in-all these are my best practices for generating YouTube views that have worked for me. I found these out by trial and error (best way I learn).

I’m Going to Motor City Comic Con!!1!

Over the past several months I have been working on a video project (well planning one). This idea came to me shortly after I went to the Motor City Comic Con (MCCC), last year. My idea was to interview several Michigan-based (mostly Metro-Detroit area) businesses, artists, and YouTubers for my vlogging channel. Sadly to say last year I did not have the proper set up to carry out my idea. This year, with the purchase of my Zoom H6, I am hoping to be able to do what I wanted to do last year.

On May 15, 16, & 17, 2015, will be this years MCCC, and I am planning a small gathering of YouTubers, artists, and anybody else that wishes to join, to meet me at MCCC (there is a cost to get in the door. Prices can be found here http://www.motorcitycomiccon.com/new-tix/). Going to work on interviewing the various venders and artists that will be there. At the moment I do not have all of the details worked out yet, but I am hoping to have that all worked out by the end of the month.

Motor City Comic Con is hosted at the Suburban Collection & Showplace in Novi MI. And there is usually a $5 parking fee.
I’m also going to create another blog post about my idea for interviewing Michigan-based businesses.

Projects and Plans for 2015.

Hello Readers/Viewers,
I hope you had a good 2014, and I hope that 2015 will bring you happiness and prosperity.

My 2014 was not the best of years, but it also wasn’t the worst either.

For my 2015 I have a few plans.

  1. I am going to try to vlog more often on my vlogging channel. As well as being more consistent on all of my YouTube channels altogether.
  2. I am going to restart my “Tips for Starting a Computer Repair Business” series: some of them will be more advanced tips, but I plan to start with some basic ones, that most people don’t think of but will destroy most small businesses. (Even the non-technical businesses)
  3. I am going to throw out my learning C# series (I’m not going to delete any of my videos), instead I’m going to cover some of the more advanced techniques in both C# and C++. I will try to explain them as basic as I can.
  4. I am also going to start an entire series on DIY photography and videography projects.

I also have a few other plans that I am working on, but at the moment they are not ready to talk about.

Mysteriously Yours,
William E. McCormick

Getting Started On YouTube. (Responses)

Here is the results of the Cameras that some people used to start on YouTube.

This is a spreadsheet that I put together to show what was used. I made it to keep anonymity.
