    Many new RUplayersrs find themselves fixated on one thing: subscriber counts. But is this numbers game doing more harm than good to your RUplayers channel?
    In this week's video, I dive deep into the pitfalls of prioritizing subscribers over content and reveal the metrics that truly matter for RUplayers and your channel growth. Discover why an obsession with subscribers can derail your channel, and learn how to shift your focus toward what truly resonates with your audience. Because, at the end of the day growing a RUplayers channel is about engagement, not just subscribers.
    Chapters:

    1:30 What causes our obsession with subscribers?
    3:46 Are subscribers important?
    4:56 Why subscribers might not matter
    6:14 Does RUplayers care about subscribers?
    6:22 Metrics that matter to RUplayers
    7:13 What that means for creators

Another thing to consider is each video reaches its full potential growth over months and years. If you post high quality content for a long period of time, eventually those will grow (if they are indeed high quality enough). I don't focus on my sub and view count. I only focus on making sure my channel has as many high quality videos possible to give myself more chances of one getting picked up eventually.

You deserve more subscribers my friend. I have 2.5k subs, gained 2k subs in a week and NO ONE comes to my streams and barely anyone I don't know comments. Makes me think its all fake. It made be obsess over why my subscribers don't communicate, making me stream less, and not enjoy myself. Thanks for this video.

The only significant thing about having a large number of subscribers is that brands are more willing to collaborate with you than with a smaller creator.

Also it gives you credibility. Unfortunately human psyche is flawed in many ways. So a person with 1.000.000 folllwers must be trustworthy and legit in all the person say and do and a person with 100 followers don’t know a shit because if they did they would also have 1.000.000 followers.

Very good level-headed explanation. It does make a lot of sense and I strongly believe that if there are metric far reaching new engagement from viewers, then subscriber count is what happens as a consequence, not the other way around. I think that snowball effect starts exactly like you explained, with subs coming then after the other metrics. As an example of my journey to your subscription: - your video got suggested, - thumbnail and title got me curious to find out more, - good quality video and excellent topic explanation (which aligns with what I researched so far) made me watch to the end, - I got value from the video watched, - I liked it as per above - and subsequently, I want to hear from you more, - so the last thing I did is I subscribed. I hope this helped.

Loved the video and it's exactly what I needed to hear right now. Going forward, I'll try not to think about the numbers too much. I think for me, it'll be great to redirect my attention to something else that I actually have control over like learning video editing to produce content that's visually appealing to the people that do watch it

This video totally resonated with me. As a fellow creator, I used to obsess over the subscriber count, which had a negative impact on me to the point where I stopped creating content for a while. Now, I am more content-focused, and as you say, if the content is valuable to the audience, they will engage - and engagement is the key to success. Lots of lessons to learn. It's very much a learning process. Great video; thanks for sharing.

I went into my last two channels with the wrong mindset of growing fast and gaining as much subscribers as I can. After getting completely burnt out and not having fun at all. I finally created my third channel and said screw the algorithm and screw having a niche. I’m just going to do what I like and if people subscribe great 👍 if not I’m still going to post because it’s fun and video making is my new hobby. It stops being fun when numbers start getting in your head 😂 Great video btw and sorry for the rant.

I’ve seen a content creator that shows that to reach the 1k subscribers goal you need to have 100,000 Views or Apx.1% of the 100,000 views actually connected to your channel to reach that number. As far as Watch hours it will take 250,000 minutes of watch time to reach the 4k in a year to achieve your WH goal. It’s a lot when you look at it realistically. Not to mention a boatload of other factors that Can Matter.

Hi Bro, thanks for sharing all helpful info. I started my channel with ideas, which i believed with passion. And then, I was not getting the subscriber numbers in and everyday it kind of affecting me emotionally. Then I started to stray off course and producing Shorts that I didn't think I would do in the first place and the only reason I'm doing it is for the sake of getting the subscriber numbers for my channel. It's really frustrating sometimes. But I'm trying to stay strong and focus and then hoping I would somehow get lucky and the numbers will just get in. I'll subscribe and like and look forward to more valuable sharing from you. God bless. Greeting from Singapore...👍💪😀

Very good tips! In my first channel, I was so obsess of getting YPP, more subscribers and using so much competitor comparison that I felt like my energy was going down and made me want to quit YouTube. I created this second channel with a different niche that I like and I’ve been less chill and agree a lot with these. As a second channel , I want to focus more on creating content and focusing my goal on giving value to a community and starting a new channel from the ground up.

I was in this situation at the beginning of the month and even deleted my channel with 1.7K subscribers. I wish I had seen this back then and understood why I was actually doing YouTube. I was chasing the subscribers and money which was a terrible way to go at it. I am glad I deleted the channel and came back with a different focus. This time around, I am focused on producing good content for my viewers. The subscribers, watch time, and money will come on their own time but now I am focused on entertaining my audience with my gift. Thanks for sharing and you just earned a new subscriber out of me :)

This is a reminder that the pursuit of mere numbers, in this case, subscribers, may lead one astray from the true essence of content creation. Indeed, an obsession with accumulating subscribers alone can result in a channel's demise. When the focus shifts solely to quantity rather than quality, authenticity, and engagement with the audience, the very essence of content creation may be compromised. Viewers seek substance, genuine connections, and meaningful content, not merely a number on a screen. Thus, let us remember that the heart of a thriving channel lies not in the chase for subscribers, but in the creation of content that resonates, inspires, and enriches the lives of those who partake. May all creators heed this sage counsel and nurture the essence of their channels with care.

Great video. I'm focused on making entertaining evergreen content, so I realize that a video with low views now can eventually get more traction months or years later but it is still a bit discouraging when it seems to die so soon after publishing - very low views and no new subscribers after multiple videos. I appreciate the insights in this video about chasing subscribers. Thanks!

I feel like CTR is really important to me. But that breaks down into 3 things that I focus on the most. A high-quality video like some commenters mentioned, a catchy thumbnail and the title. I think focusing on these things the rest will follow. If we focus on our subscribers count and views, we'll start to feel burnt out and it can eventually affect us mentally. Good luck everyone in the new year, take care of yourselves and be well.

I enjoyed your video…. I’ve focused on making more #shorts b/c they are easier to make, I needed time to learn video/editing skills, it attracts subscribers more quickly, and I can groom the #shorts for an international audience. I’m almost at 1,000 subscribers but I will need to pivot to longer videos now, to catch up on watch time—which is really low…. Good wishes to you!

5 месяцев назад
@TheKevinDrew +1
@TheKevinDrew

I also did a couple of shorts but, like you said, did not notice much crossover to the long form. Shorts most definitely do help with the editing skills, as you need quite a bit of “effects” and action to get your audience to watch them so nice work there, those skills will be amazing when it comes to your long form videos! if you want to be monetized you’ll be needing those 4000 watch hours (or 10M short views in a 90day period).. if I remeber correctly. Well done with your channel and good wishes to you too 😀

Subscribers don't matter anymore, it's going to become a vanity metric soon once people realize that it's more about landing on the homepage rather than sending your videos out to the sub feed and constantly asking for subscribers. When going into making youtube videos forget about even trying to get monetized you're not going to in an instant. It will take some time but not as long as you think. Just focus on your content and make sure it's something that YOU are satisfied with and continue with that. It'll become easier to make videos that way and you'll have a lot more fun in the process. Stop trying to think about what Youtube wants and start focusing on what you want. Truth be told, youtube has been misleading us creators and I'm not just talking about the platform itself. I'm even talking about the culture of youtube and especially those of youtube gurus who are trying to tell you what to do. No one knows anything unless you are willing to break the system.

Youtube isn't easy. It's frustrating to keep trying without seeing any sign of growth. I'm struggling right now because no matter what, if the algorithm follows the audience, it's not interested in also helping us, small content creators. In fact, it really isn't. It serves the viewers, not the content creators. And I'm starting to strongly believe that my content has no value whatsoever. It's not a question of lack of self-confidence, it's a question of facing the facts. If we have no audience, maybe the algorithm is right. Sad but true. Another topic is that 90% of Youtube's traffic comes from 3% of the bigger channels (Roberto Blake brought it to discussion on his channel). If it's true, then maybe we're facing not an algorithm that only relies on metrics but also on management and strategic decisions such as channel picking, country of origin, trends and controversial topics, etc, beyond our capability to overcome. It's dificult to compete with clickbaiting, sexy thumbnails or the praise of foolishness. But everything goes for Youtube , the holly graal is CTR and audience retention. We are kind of forced to make videos for kids because of the short attention span, people like high energy videos, not medium or moderate pace... But that limits the creative freedom. If we don't make videos with that mindset and pace, we're doomed. Well, who knows... Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe not. Some of us (lots of us) think the same, feel the same... and the reallity is... Youtube doesn't care. 🤷🏻😕 Keep going, Kevin. All the best.

Guys remember that some channel with high subscribers counts and low views, most likely they bought their subscribers or sometime views. Since i started youtube 1 month now, i keep getting these ppl on Facebook messenger offering subscribers to me. Be careful guys.

I can’t live stream from my phone app because I have not reached 500 subs according to the community guidelines but I can live stream from my PC. Why YouTube?

Hi Kevin, I like your channel very much, you produce great content, but there is a problem, the translation part of your channel does not work, almost none of the words you say in English or other languages come out as subtitles, I would be very happy if you solve this problem. Greetings from Turkey 👋

Sub count means nothing, it's all about views and watch time. Some guy told He subbed but has no intention to watch My videos so I told Him to unsubscribe, I dont want him subbed if He isn't watching. He laugh and didn't say He would unsub, this really irritated Me, the guys demanding My channel by subbing and not watching.

Having the RIGHT subs is KEY. The wrong ones will mess up your analytics and possibly reduce metrics that are important to your content being suggested on the platform. Metrics>subs

Just checked your channel after watching 30 seconds of this video. This is the only thumbnail I found visually attractive and your only video title starting with a question that draws curiosity. You said you are pointlessly unsure of your titles and thumbnails because of your subscriber count. But maybe there is a little bit of truth and some stuff to work on.
