  • [ – ] BrianAiya reply well said dude! people who make channels in YT now get 0 views and 0 comments. Here anyone gets atleast 30 views so it means that people are noticing you. After some time you will notice the growth. Those who are complaining now don't understand how much harder it is in YT. Patience is the real test.
  • [ – ] TheGeekKeenan reply Just started Vidme, I really needed to see this video!
  • [ – ] Angry-Quad reply It's WORK! It takes time to grow ANYTHING.....
  • [ – ] n0dy88 reply I came over from youtube, i have 1100 subs on youtube.. but the content that i am creating here is getting way more love! IM a small channel, but the progression i am seeing on my channel alone is amazing! For the other channels.. HE is right! it is a grind! But ide suggest for those trying to get big in an online community.. BE APART of the community! share, like, comment.. Get involved, encourage others to do more! if someone is doing something that's offsetting but their content is decent! share your opinion! Naturally i create videos to show my friends how dumb they are sometimes. I record gaming sessions and post the stupid and off setting topics that they talk about while we game.. It is funny for us and some outsiders enjoy it as well.. Now if i never get big thats OK! I love making the content for my friends and myself! So find something that drives you! dont do the regular thing that everyone else does.. Be brave! crush your imagination and create! Anyways ill shut my mouth...more hole now.. Thanks for posting YungJ!
  • [ – ] Crator reply I just got started making some videos myself. I figure I'm better focusing on smaller communities then getting lost in the ocean that is youtube nowadays. Thanks for the this advice video.
  • WildleHouse reply i agree, do what you want to do. i'm the type of person that likes feedback, on content i make, i don't want to bore people. but it's true be you and people will find if they like the same thing, they join in or follow.
  • [ – ] Anonymous_Gamer reply do what you love! Build it and they will come....too much instant gratification now days nobody has patience or a hard work ethic.
  • [ – ] Torok0420 reply I Like That You Said " stay True To Yourself " That's The Key .... We Are All One Of A Kind , Do What You Love ..... Great Video Man !!
  • [ – ] BracketNeutron reply I myself had a small following on YouTube, but there is a community on my channel. Not to say it's a good community, but there were still people interested in the content I produce. I'm not on Vidme to get verified, I'm here as an alternative and to a lesser extent a place to upload some exclusive content that isn't on my YT. I hate it when people try to cheat the system to try to get verified or trending.
    • [ – ] BigThoughts parent reply I get what your saying completely! And definitely also upload on Youtube! I must say however, my experience here is much better then Youtube at the moment. Cause, people actually check out your content and support one another. Something that is rare on Youtube in my eyes, But feel welcome here and do what you love, creating content!
    • YungJ parent reply I understand that for sure. Im just on vidme officially because I just love the community feel and how everyone supports one another.
  • [ – ] Supernatural_Sightings reply I haven't been on the trending page in a long time. I've kinda changed the way I do videos and I don't have time to constantly upload everyday. I'm hoping that my new videos will get watched. I'm happier doing my own thing now.
  • [ – ] AxxL_Afriku reply I'll just continue uploading retarded 10-20 second long videos and be getting them followers OH YEAH
  • [ – ] SurgedAI reply Nicely put. Back on YouTube (Been making videos since 2014) Its defiantly a grind, but YouTube is a mass ocean not friendly for new channels at all. Within the time I've been on YouTube I've only gotten around 100 Subscribers. Now I don't care about numbers but on Vid.me I've gotten around 34 within a month of uploading(Only recently started uploading more.) And it feels more human on here than it does on Vid.me. Gotta work long hard.
    • YungJ parent reply well said my dude. Youtube is definitely not new creator friendly it can be quite difficult.
  • [ – ] VictorSavelle reply Well said, I just talked about similar stuff as well. People try to boast their numbers with follow 4 follow and get impatient, which imo is actually hurting a fan base. Just keep grinding as you said. 👍
    • [ – ] YungJ parent reply I've never got the follow 4 follow thing going around. You wont gain a active community from that.
  • [ – ] mindofklink reply Great message! I've said a variation of what you said to many people that I've interacted with over the years. Unfortunately, some people don't want to hear it because they're after instant gratification. After 1 video they expect thousands of views and millions of subscribers/followers. Doesn't work that way, mate.
  • [ – ] Dreyson reply No matter if it's on YouTube, twitch, or Vidme it will ALWAYS be a grind. Creating videos is a fun hobby for me that I like doing and that's how it should be so this is a good message you're putting out fam
  • [ – ] LloydandJD reply Lots of people forget to do what they love. Something that people need to definitely need to reflect on! Cheers!
  • GoMGTOW reply None of which applies to my channel.... My content is a community service podcast for the betterment of Men. I don't see myself profiteering off of the misery of others.
  • [ – ] ITSnippets reply Excellent video. I started a channel to learn video editing but as with a lot of people I got lost in the crowd over on YT. I initially thought it was my content and I worked to improve sound editing etc but realised that my Bitchute views were usually > 100 where as on YT it was like < 10... Here on vidme it is still tiny amounts but I hope keeping my nose to the grind helps improve that!
  • [ – ] DemonGroceryStore reply Thanks, I'll keep uploading my videos even if I don't get verified. I know I'll get back on my feet.
    • YungJ parent reply you'll get verified trust me just takes a little effort and a lot of patience :) Keep doing you and you'll find success :)
  • [ – ] Glassic_Gamer reply I have noticed that you do grow much faster here than on YT and you get views within seconds of posting. So much different.
  • [ – ] Chrone reply Definitely man, work hard, spend the hours, and get involved in the community. Maybe do a collab here or there with another vidme creator, but just make sure you're active! ^^
  • OrionKing reply Very well spoken sir. I had that feeling and you are right, keep grinding away at the thing you love and eventually all will come together.
  • [ – ] MrMemeKing reply Well said my friend
  • [ – ] Minicoso reply Liked the video!
  • ScooterMcGoo323 reply Well said Bro! The Grind is real!
  • [ – ] Gavinmation reply Good words, man. I just came over from Youtube and joined VidMe today, just wanting to check out what the interface was like and how to get around the site, what people are like, etc.. I'm incredibly small on Youtube but I've been doing it since October cause I really enjoy making stuff, and would be making stuff regardless of the numbers. From the content I've brought over so far, I've got pretty good reception and the VidMe folks seem a lot more welcoming and prone to helpful feedback and positive interaction. Glad I made the choice to come over and will definitely be sticking with it continuously. And from what I've seen, VidMe seems a lot fuller with people who love what they do over people just looking for the numbers and popularity on Youtube. I've especially noticed a massive influx of animators on this site, which I love. Youtube was doing it's hardest to kill animators off so I hope VidMe is better for that kind of stuff.
  • [ – ] Al_Covers reply Great video! I make covers of songs I like, and I'm having a lot of fun doing it.
  • [ – ] Expired99 reply ANY SMALL CHANNELS WANT TO HELP EACH OTHER OUT?
  • [ – ] Techmike23 reply Way to say how it is! Vidme has a great community and if you work hard you will get noticed.
  • [ – ] Nivlee reply Thanks man! Really reassured me. I just started and yeah, everything's going to be a grind.
  • HandMadeByHolly reply I"m not big on YT and I won't be big here. That's the nature of crafting vids. My videos do seem to get more traction here when it comes to views and I think that's because there doesn't seem to be as many 'crafting' or 'sewing' channels on here yet. I am still really hoping for my 50minimum required followers to get verified though. I just hope it won't be as long as it took me on YT to do it! lol (years i'm talking ;p )
  • [ – ] Mondmann reply lmao rip dude. I used to be kinda popular on here, but now that I've returned after like half a year, nobody gives a shit about anymore. Not the staff, and not the viewers xd. I hope my next video or two gets some attention.
    • nodetact parent reply Oh, tell me about it! I have been mostly active with the Vidizens in comments such as these, but after around half a year with zero videos of my original content creations, even here on Vidme it's reasonable not to follow/subscribe to/tip an unverified/non-starred channel with just dozens of audience engaged paragraphs! It was the same story for my Minds profile, where I had done some of the basics of that alternative social media website with a healthy and steady growth of followers, then after going on hiatus for even a few months (if you do this to Gab for a biannual year, your account goes into jeopardy!) I had my statistics plummet flatland into the bottom of the screen. Perhaps we just needed more of a following?
  • [ – ] Westley_Nash reply I find VidMe a heck of a lot better than YouTube. I get substantially more views on my videos here than there. Every channel looking to startup will have to work hard, it won't just come easy; nothing does. My own work is my art, so I'd make them even offline 👍 We can't spend all our time complaining that we get no recognition (well, we can but it will only make us more disheartened) but find better ways to promote & adapt ourselves.
  • FemFury reply Well said, I agree! Some people forget that.
  • [ – ] XGuyy reply congrats man, you got on trending!
  • [ – ] PleaseRewindNapoleon reply Very good points here. I'm struggling due to inconsistent upload times, but if I'm doing what I love and people take time to watch, I'm happy. Thanks for sharing this video.
  • [ – ] AtticusJackson reply Good message, dude. Respect.
  • [ – ] BigDaddyStarBomber reply I grow faster on here than I do YouTube. This is a bit confusing, considering traffic.
  • [ – ] Killerpez1093 reply Thank you for the message. Well said man
  • [ – ] TheEleyCrew reply To be honest I came from YouTube so what you say is accurate. I am so lucky on YouTube to get a new video to 20-30 views but on Vidme people actually notice my channel and watch my content. It's a good feeling and that is why Vidme has become my primary upload site. Vidme is awesome and I'm willing to work for this.
    • YungJ parent reply You're in the right mindset man, most people will look at 20-30 views as a failure but you need to think of it as 20-30 people noticed you :) Keep up the good work
  • [ – ] GermanMadman reply Gotta grind to get that view.
  • [ – ] skpacman reply Well said. That's the same thing I tell everyone. Grind Grind Grind. Do what you love and ignore the numbers. You'll make it eventually.
  • [ – ] cryptodigitator reply Yes, it is a struggle. Especially now that Vid.me just raised the bar to 50 subs before you can be verified. But painful as it is I'm still growing 10x faster here than on YouTube.
  • [ – ] FL_Unfiltered reply I'm a small minuscule channel over on YT but wanted to see how it was over here and honestly things are getting so censored over there it doesn't even feel like you can just be yourself. That's not what they are looking for and I like genuine/raw creators. We share life experiences or hobbies and I wanna see real people.
  • [ – ] DinkyGames reply Awesome message! I just started making videos on YT back in March and here maybe a couple weeks ago. The numbers aren't there yet and it's not something I'm worried about. I'm definitely enjoying the process of making videos, learning new things as I go along and finding my style. I know that the numbers will come in time.
  • [ – ] MisterHan2000 reply Great advice! A good video for newcomers to watch. Yeah, it's a grind, but it really is worth it if you do what you love. I mean, is there any form of work, play, hobby, whatever, that DOESN'T require a grind?
  • [ – ] Epica reply To me vidme is more than just money is place where I can be me. Even though working on videos is taking awhile. :(
  • [ – ] Pasticheofskin reply The battle continues for relevance. Still going to work on both channels. My yt my vid me My beam my twitch my hitbox.... Everything. Hope to see you all around keep on creating
  • [ – ] Directionally_Challenged reply Yeah it really is a grind, my biggest problem is just, trying to get myself out there, get on channels and talk with people, build friendships up you know?
    • [ – ] YungJ parent reply I would just ask people around on vidme :) This community is friendly so dont be afraid to ask :)
      • Directionally_Challenged parent reply that's part of my problem lol XD i'm really uneasy about talking with new people most the time, So a lot of it is me forcing myself to get out of my comfort zone. But I'm trying!
  • Cammi reply I love all the support! If anyone is willing to check out my channel and give feedback or if you guys are feeling incredibly Generous a follow as well! I would also love to see what content you guys have also :)
  • [ – ] SurfersSelfies reply yess too true bro
  • [ – ] fullerSpectrum reply My issue isn't really a "grind" (I just started uploading here after all). I literally cannot upload my content because it's a 2-3 hour podcast. Even edited, I can't post it all because of the 1gb/week limit. Do you have any advice for that kind of issue?
    • YungJ parent reply Yeah that's a big issue with vidme in my opinion. Hopefully they realize that its hurting smaller creators and take that limit off
  • [ – ] Aaronshy reply I'm small and haven't given up yet. On YouTube everything went down hill for me but now on Vidme it's looking up.
    • [ – ] YungJ parent reply glad to hear that congrats!
      • Aaronshy parent reply Yeah. Sure I had a moment of losing followers and not being given a reason why but I'm slowly getting back up where it was and might manage a good amount eventually. I was major small time on YouTube so when it went down hill so did my channel. On Vidme there's no risk of that.
  • [ – ] Godhood reply My only gripe is that Vidme added a rule that you need 50 followers to be verified, that rule was changed in May but I've been here since April. I've applied twice for verification and never heard back from them, so I sent them an e-mail they gave me vague answers and to encourage me to build a following. Unfortunately I'm limited to one video a week because I can't go over 1 GB since I'm not verified. Believe me I don't do my videos to get revenue I like what I do and I hope other people do when they subscribe to my channel.
    • YungJ parent reply Yes the limit for non verified channels is hurting smaller channels I hope they fix it in the future
  • [ – ] tomjung reply I like what I do. I don't mind the grind. But this year, the year before and possibly 2018, I don't see myself ever doing videos, art or podcasts anything at the volume I'd like to. I need to at least need to become debt free(excluding car payments) before I can comfortably work less and do fun shit more.
  • [ – ] Ramona77 reply Good advice. Thanks for sharing.
  • pianoelectro reply What most YouTube Mogul-minded individuals and entities don't consider is that Vid.Me is a different so-called "marketplace" than 'YT'. While many may not understand this comparison, I think of the video-games industry in the 80s and TV; back then, a large network like CBS/Fox could help syndicate a small show like "Gamepro" for the audience that was interested, despite how tiny. It's an interest many miles away from TV shows and Movies at one tyme but now, it's all crossover and designed that way via the cunning use of licensing and copyright. Now, Vid.Me isn't designed that way but has tools in place to hopefully balance monies while remaining more like, "Gamepro" (while still servicing larger network users)... Something like that; either how, on to the Knob Creek! - Ss https://vid.me/DguI
  • [ – ] FreshSocksFox reply Seriously. This is the best thing for small creators. I actually feel like you people pay attention to me.
  • [ – ] Dashball reply I've just started out on this website, decided to branch out from just only being on YouTube, I am pretty happy on here because I seem to be doing better, any way, well made video, and extremely true, it's not all about becoming the biggest out there, it doesn't mean much if you don't like what you do.... Definitely upvoted this :D
    • YungJ parent reply I'm glad you're liking the site, I wish nothing but the best for anyone making content on here :)
  • [ – ] DruJayVee reply Appreciate it man! The Youtube channels crossposting and moving over is a bit disheartening, seeing how they immediately have a following. I still do my weeklys, and I still see steady growth. I just hope people enjoy my work. Thanks again!
  • [ – ] whako reply Great video appreciate you helping small creators!
  • [ – ] HeroicVillain reply I think vid.me is community oriented. So, people who cater to a specific part of the vid.me world tend to garner support from certain communities. Sometimes communities overlap. People who like watching gamers might also be into videos about social issues. A lot of the channels with the most followers are ones that can catch the appreciation of multiple communities. There are a lot of very kind and supportive people here WAY better than any support group I've ever been to, and at the end of the day what's it all for, right? If I ever actually take the plunge into being a content creator, I definitely would be satisfied even if just my small circle of friends here followed me.
  • [ – ] FrostyGalaxy reply Yay you made a video for me
  • TheScreaminGoat reply I have fun doing videos on YT and here and i've seen small success here and on YT (10,000 views for me is amazing, sure most people sneeze at that but its a step forward).
  • [ – ] BigThoughts reply Well said man! I mean, youi can't expect to be the next "big thing"out of nowhere! And you're right if you do video creating for the money and or fame, your better of trying something else, And complaining, well that's not going to get you anywhere! If you do, no one will like your content, because one way or another, they are going to notice that frustration! If you want to grow, be creative, make videos that stand out, or ig your doing something like I do so music as an example, It's going to take a long time, because someone needs to show your video to friends family etc....... Or a Vidme creator giving you a shout out, basicly anuthing that gets the ball roling..... And what goes together with all these things I mentioned? You guessed it... Patience! And trust me, I'm a small channel, and I can say that even I dio much better on Vidme then Youtube! Because if your willing to invest in watching other people's content, comment on videos, give usefull feedback etc,,, Chances are,...more people here are willing to help you! And I don't mean, "Hey can someone check my videos out and follow me? I'll follow back!" It has to be the viewers intention to follo or subscribe to you! Because if someone follows you because you asked them to, and you follow back, you probably don't even watch each others videos! So you both gained nothing... The reason why you could comment and upvote someone's video is so that maybe someone thinks: "Hey, that's a cool/ fun or intresting comment, I'll check him out!" Lastly, have fun with what you do! Just my thoughts on this topic! Good video, and small creators keep working! It's up to you to get noticed not someone else!:)
  • [ – ] Guy_In_Car_Radio reply This is really awesome advice. I think a lot of us believe it happens over night with no work. And that is just not the case and we to provide good content and be sincere. Best of luck to your channel.
  • Guy_In_Car_Radio reply This is really awesome advice. I think a lot of us believe it happens over night with no work. And that is just not the case and we to provide good content and be sincere. Best of luck to your channel.
  • [ – ] Arcade-Salad reply nice video
  • [ – ] PUREGAMINGDNA reply Vidme is paradise for small content creators compared to YouTube. Long live Vidme! :D
  • [ – ] Dig_Duke reply I just love making animations but got tired of false copyright claims, so I moved here to vidme n I'm perfectly fine ^_^ I love supporting others n Makin some gaming Videos here shortly :) great video man, well spoken words for us little people X3
  • [ – ] Neilist reply oh the grind, so many places it seems like you have to grind too, not just here but all the social platforms. feels like a lot of viewers don't pay attention to youtube or vidme, but if they see your video on facebook or twitter they're watch..
  • jrswab reply #DoWhatYouLove
  • [ – ] jrswab reply I miss you @YungJ happy to see that beautiful face brother <3
  • [ – ] GauteAnimation reply 46 followers. Which is awesome! Never got that high before. What I had before Vidme was nothing more than a dead hidden youtube channel. Also noticed that more often you will get a follower or two through comments you've written. Heck, i also find it much more tempting to click into peoples channels through comments here. It never crossed my mind to do so on youtube. No need for begging and frustration, let time and Vidme do it's job ;)
  • [ – ] The_Tennents_Special_Crew reply Anyone that does YouTube or vidme to become rich and famous are deluded. Treat it like a hobby and just have fun with it and hey STAY SPECIAL
  • Iannis_Hour reply Let's suppose that for todays video i have 3 topics to chose from : A Topic (ex : Fidget Spiners Got Lame) 5M Views B Topic (ex : Leafy Got Exposed) 4M Views G Topic (ex : KeemStar is lieing blablabla) 3M Vies Now What Topic will u chose for your video ??? Well if you amswered A then u just said it without thinking much because it is more trending , if u amswered B or G well u got what u liked from the topics and what u dicided u can say the most about . Now i am not saying that if u repeat yourself 5 times (Leafy Like Video) u will be at the top NO just saying that if u dont like the Topic DONT CHOSE IT unless u like it and feel that you can make todays ''entertaining'' video
  • [ – ] USUandS reply Big Vidme creator or not, it's cool seeing topics like these come from all kinds of users. I agree with the notion that it should be done out of passion; the rest will feel like a bonus if it's what they love doing. Great video and message!
  • [ – ] Radioactiveroach reply So long as I can get at least one upvote (besides myself) I'm pretty happy.
  • [ – ] Trap_Luverz reply +1 Upvote. I do love making videos and promoting Producers that I love so I can't complain too much. Getting verified is the issue for small or new channels though because t's hard to gain a following while at the same time being limited in uploads per week. My advice is to upload to all platforms available to you and eventually your vidme channel will catch up...grind on!
    • YungJ parent reply Yeah the vidme limit for non verified channels are pretty dumb in my opinion, but that being said hopefully they expand that limit in the future or just take the limit off :)
  • ShaxxUK reply The worst thing about being a small creator is the small amount of upload space. I like the video though. Totally agree though! YouTube was tough. I've had more success on this in 9 days however then I have 4 - 5 months of YT.
  • DanielHuntington reply Admittedly, it's easy for people like me to get somewhat frustrated on not getting noticed, but then I just learn to let it go, and just focus on making the content I want to do the best I can, and be patient if I keep at it.
  • [ – ] assassinofpower8 reply I do what I love too and I am staying with it
  • assassinofpower8 reply I do what I love too and I am staying with it
  • assassinofpower8 reply I do what I love too and I am staying with it

  • assassinofpower8 reply I do what I love too
  • [ – ] SpeedRave reply Your Vid helped me to get on track. I was mostly thinking about having a burn-out ,just being too uncreative or stupid to create Videos cause of my problem to speak english properly and i was not receiving well here on VidMe, so i stopped creating stuff. That was my actually personal problem: I was thinking about my videos in a 3rd person view than rather my own view. I was not loving what im doing and stopping without doing more `cause of that. Kudos to you,YungJ. I needed that Video.
  • [ – ] ManySkills reply I've noticed so many people (mainly on YouTube) that beg you to watch their content (which usually consists of shoutout videos or thanks for x subs) and stop at that. They don't care about the content or their viewers, they just think they can make a quick buck. This is a hard job. I'm growing my second channel from scratch and balancing that with work full time and what little social life I have left is beyond difficult. But I enjoy it. I have bigger dreams of helping others using my videos as a medium as silly as that may sound from a (for now) gaming channel. I know I'm not the only one and that's why I make the time to comment and watch every video I can. Let's not let vidme turn into what YouTube is now.
  • [ – ] ComplaintsOfAnEnglishman reply Honestly making animation takes a long long time but posting here i seem to have grown alot quicker than on youtube, so im just glad a few people are finding my work
    • YungJ parent reply I'll have to check your channel out I love watching original animations :) Keep up the videos and you'll find success :)
  • [ – ] Profitsforall reply As I once heard from an very successful entrepreneur Patience is key.
  • [ – ] katradMLGPRO reply True I'm small but I know i will get followings but that will take time
  • [ – ] mathphysicsnerd reply Honestly, with a small number of exceptions, I've been striving to not watch the successful like (100k+ subs) YouTubers on here. I know that sounds kinda biased, but here's why; I believe the smaller transplants on here and the VidMe only crowd are more deserving of my personal viewership than the larger video makers that have an established audience. Hopefully the smaller people will grow, then when they've earned great support I'll be able to just watch whomever
  • [ – ] GreyMovies reply As a small content creator, this was something I needed to hear. Thanks for posting this.
  • [ – ] valereth reply I have been uploading to Youtibe for years. Have over 400 videos there. Been transferring my backlog over here. Got over 200 of them here. Never gained a following there. Hoping to gain one here.
  • [ – ] professorvapes reply yep i have good standing on youtube and now it is slow moving due to the new rules that is why I joined youtube and I forget most of the time that others are struggling but if we all stick together then we can give youtube a run for the money. so any new content providers should stick with it because it takes time.
  • [ – ] UnarmoredForce reply Vidme is a magical place! Making content is an awesome hobby! Life is good.
  • [ – ] TimThebodeau reply Loved the message man. I'm actually coming here from YouTube and I purposely didn't tell my subscribers about it because I LOVE the grind, especially when it comes to new platforms. I understand how people get frustrated but they need to take a big look at how long they've been doing it before giving up as a whole.
    • YungJ parent reply Very true I just hate seeing new creators on vidme get discourage and leave the site completely.
  • [ – ] Voxgizer reply This. Totally. I've been on VidMe about 3 weeks and have almost the same amount of views, if not more, than I had on my last YouTube channel after 3 MONTHS. It's work, it's growth, and it's a grind, but it's all worth it.
  • MrATAndreiThomas reply I'm a small content creator myself and I don't care about the video views I get on my videos, when I make videos, I don't do it for popularity, I do my videos because I enjoy what I love doing and I am not interested with the big content creators that over to vidme from youtube because I find most of them over the top and egotistical, and those who that egotistical and over the top, I will not respect them in any way possible. I will keep distance away from them and continue to focus what I love doing to keep on striving consistently and I only do it for fun and creativity, It will take patience to get some success for your channel because the you strive towards the more your own channel grows.
  • [ – ] mechriot reply Great video man, couldn't agree more! :)
  • [ – ] roachsoap72 reply Great video, sometimes the grind is reward in itself, having just over 100 views on my channel, I'm in no way successful, but that 100 mark meant more to me than earning money, people are watching the stuff that I make, and that's enough. Bringing add money into vidme is going to stop people pushing themselves to create, when you have to start censoring your content because you don't want to offend the sponsors, thats when creativity dies, and business takes over.
  • [ – ] FreshTrailers reply Well said! I just started Vidme and I am loving this community! The only thing I would like vidme to reconsider is weekly upload bandwidth for small creators. :P
    • [ – ] YungJ parent reply The bandwidth was an issue for me to when I first started vidme, hopefully they'll change that in the future :)
      • FreshTrailers parent reply Yup, it's a big drawback for creators like us...Right now I still have 6 more uploads to complete. However, I am left with few hundred MB's ..:P This bandwidth should be fine for creator with a YT account as primary channel but for peeps like us who are exclusive on Vidme it kinda disappointing. :(
  • [ – ] MrJoelDee reply Very well said man. You hit the nail on the head. That is key, do what "you" enjoy doing. I'm nowhere near being a huge creator and I didn't start out to be. From day one, I've made the kind of videos that "I" want to make, knowing there is a portion of the vast population out there that will like what I do. You get into trouble when you start trying to please the masses. When you hit that upload button, YOU ultimately have to be happy with and proud of what you created. THAT, in my opinion, is what makes a good video. Followers will come and go and as you said, give it time, and you WILL get the views. Very well done video.
  • [ – ] DGTLONE reply Very nice video bro keep up the great work and keep grinding . : )
  • [ – ] ImmortalJeremy reply Nice tips. What's up with the smoke? You vape before the video? 😗💨
  • [ – ] ItalianGuy235 reply You raise a lot of going points while keeping the video concise which is good. I remember when I started on YT 2 years ago with an old laptop and god awful mic and slowly built myself up to a mid range rig and a proper mic. Even though I didn't blow up or get a lot of views I kept going because it was fun and I enjoyed it. People should look at this kind of thing more as a fun hobby rather than trying to make it their job like Pewdiepie or Markiplier, etc. Again well done on the vid.
  • [ – ] WaRpt reply Great message man! I completely agree. The biggest thing about the grind in my opinion is the fact that you gotta do it for yourself. Gotta Love what you do. If eventually you start to build a fan base, then that's great. Hard work and dedication for what you love to do is key. Awesome video.
  • [ – ] EplxProductions reply I'm ready to put in the work I'm done with YouTube. Even if it means 1k a week I can do it.
  • [ – ] Nattnotions reply This is super cool. And you're right. Everyone's gotta start somewhere. Luck and talent may be a few of the catalysts for success but hard work and consistency is also a big part of a creator's success, among other things. Creators need to have a good combination of skills to make it. Just like running a business. No one said running your own business is easy, especially if you're a one-man show. So yeah, to all fellow small creators out there, go with your gut and don't forget to keep learning and growing along the way. You'll get there someday.
