  1. Subscribers is the next thing I wanna speak about. People give some thought to the way to get youtube views and the first thing that pops in their head is subscribers. They assume that in the event that they have much more subscribers then theyll get much more views. This is certainly false. I will clarify why. Subscribers are solely good whenever you first submit the video. This is because they will discover the video and put up feedback on it. Then, this may get you in the most discussed listing and more people will come and watch and leave comments. It is get you more views however it is only since you have been on an inventory not owing to your video. Subscribers are good to have and not as important as individuals think.

  2. Good job right here. I actually enjoyed what you had to say. Keep going because you definitely bring a new voice to this topic. Not many people would say what youve said and still make it interesting. Well, at least Im interested. Cant wait to see far more of this from you.
