  • [ – ] BrianAiya reply for me a successful channel is not about the numbers, but the engagement and relationship with creator and followers. I gave these tools not to advertise your channels but to be more interactive with the community. Also I want to give a shoutout to @theoldsparrow @HungryJeff1 @conner @Y2JayDoesAsia @512markdd @warren @MeditationChannel for tipping my previous video. I appreciate it.
    • [ – ] theoldsparrow parent reply You're welcome, buddy. Yeah I know how you feel when it comes to follow for follow. I have a few followers that follow me and, something absurd, like 13,000 other people. That's not how I want to get followers. I want people to watch my videos and start a conversation about the topic. Not reach the highest amount of followers by the numbers that won't even watch my videos. You're right. Organic growth is the best.
    • 512markdd parent reply You're very welcome
  • [ – ] Rawman reply Eyyyyyy!!!!! That introoooo!!!!!! My boy knows how to get the party started. Man your videos are always excited. Thanks for tagging me!!!!! Wow!!!! I love your videos because you use comedy to all out the poo! Lol. You done it last time in your video and I love it haha. Yeah vidme creators here are great you are right. I agree jaiden animations is great even Ami (who i did shout out) but they are ok. I used the shoutout to shoutout who i think people who around me wouldn't usually watch. "Why you so handsome" hahahaha you are legendary!!!! Great advice on the ways to do well on vidme this is truly solid advice that a lot of people don't follow. Use your social media normally yes!!!! Hahahaha that balloon joke was too funny. Hahaha was that a set up? Or you just super random? Hahahahahaha "he smells criney" hahahahahaha!!!!!!!!! Super funny video loved it!!!!!
    • [ – ] BrianAiya parent reply thanks dude for the cool words! yea, you deserve the shoutout. You commenting here shows that you are active in the community and i am glad that i like your vids and that you like mine too :P oh, the ballon part was random. i wish i found money instead xD
      • [ – ] Rawman parent reply hahaha yes i love finding money in my pocket! usually there is none! that balloon part was super funny! thanks for your shoutout and nice words it means a lot. I was watching this while editing my video and i gave you a small cameo at the start your "cringe" part cracked me up so i hope you get to see how much you make me laugh. I do try my best to be part of a community. i love chatting and love conversation.
        • [ – ] BrianAiya parent reply i'm just sorry that i mentioned your name very quickly. I wasn't really focusing on making the vidme challenge, i was focusing more on giving the tips and tricks. This video wasn't prepared. I just improvised and remembered your channel. i can't wait to see the vid xD
          • Rawman parent reply nah man this video is really well made you have a very unique way to your videos!! the first one of yours i see was happy SAD and was immediately hooked. knowing you improvised this makes me appreciate this more and honestly thanks for keeping me in mind i hope i done you justice haha.
  • [ – ] Raptorgaming reply "He smells cringey" -- Aiya, 2017
  • [ – ] HeroicVillain reply How many times did you have to throw that ball before you got that take? By the way, congrats, Aiya. Cool to have been harassing you all along in some incarnation or another.
  • [ – ] xNoble_Guardian reply ALWAYS GIVE UP. AND REMEMBER TO SURRENDER. or something like that...
  • [ – ] AwesomeGames007 reply Hey bro check my channel! Jk lol. I liked your tips. I have been trying to watch more people's videos lately. I found this guy @bobbythesheep who is hilarious because of it. Actually there was another who shall not be named, that was a disappointment but I liked his videos. Hopefully vidme can become as viable as YouTube when it comes to content creating for a living.
    • [ – ] BobbyTheSheep parent reply Hee hee thank you human!!!!!! I really appreciate the shout-out you know? I agree with the philosophy. When I meet a new video creator, I always take the time to see their content properly, understand what they are about, and then comment. I find that it helps you know? Cause together we can lift each other up! Things only don't work when we look out for ourselves. But when we look out for others sincerely, good things can happen for EVERYONE, not just one HUMAN or one sheep, you know? <3 Thanks for the love!
  • [ – ] 512markdd reply The funny thing about I Hate Everything is he hasn't been uploading anything since Dec 9th and he mentioned in the description of that video Vidme is a mirror of YouTube and to ignore his recommendation of checking out Vidme. Anyway, another great video Aiya! Great message and congrats on 300+ followers!
    • [ – ] BrianAiya parent reply Oh i didn't know he said that :P I'm sure he secretly checks out Vidme from time to time to see where vidme is going. Thanks for the support!
      • 512markdd parent reply Oh I bet he does lol. The only reason that came to mind is I followed him at first and was disappointed when he said that and then stopped uploading.
  • [ – ] GrayRPG reply You speak the truth on a lot of things on this video lol. This is my first time really being on this website and striving to be a creator and so far it seems pretty welcoming lol
  • RSNAnime reply I'm not sure if Vidme will even have monitization, or at least not how YouTube does it. One of their blog posts were saying that they want to keep advertose,etms to a minimum, which means that there won't be ad revenue for creators. Which while this might mean less money for creators, it also means that the site can be built around creators, not advertisements, which is a good thing. Plus I've made more money from generous tippers here than I ever made from ads on YouTube. I'll keep in mind the advice about tags too, that might help more people notice my videos. Great video, and congrats on the 300 followers.
  • [ – ] Dos_Gaming reply We could do the "Dos_Gaming" challenge! You'll got a month and who ever does the most collabs with me wins!
    • [ – ] BrianAiya parent reply don't think about a new challenge now :P You better upload a new vidmevillains podcast soon. There are many new viewers who are thirsty
      • [ – ] Dos_Gaming parent reply I just uploaded a vidme villains interview! And nobody watched it!
        • [ – ] BrianAiya parent reply oh yea, i saw it, the interview one with some ladies ;))) you double uploaded it to your channel and vidmevillains right? i meant a full VidmeVillains podcast with the gang. Idk talk about the new updates in vidme. i miss your podcast
          • Dos_Gaming parent reply No, the one on the vidme villains is a full unedited podcast the one on my channel is just a short version of it.
  • [ – ] mindofklink reply Solid advice in your video. You're right in that most people nowadays can tell if someone is putting on an act. As you said, be yourself or rather more truthfully, be genuine. If you're genuine and work hard to make great content, you will succeed.
  • [ – ] MarcAngeloRocafort reply The dance is back 😂😂😂 dude I didn't even know you gave me a shout! thanks for the help 😊 Hahaha you always crack me up but also this video has been a big help, thanks for always making an impact in our community. P. S CONGRATS ON HITTING 300 VIDIZENS
    • BrianAiya parent reply the dance is only if i hit milestones ;) You deserve the shoutout. What are you doing here? GO GO enjoy your bday party!
  • [ – ] CrazyRocky reply Congrats Aiya love these videos 😂

  • [ – ] omegajim reply Great video, 300 is awesome. Keep it up.
  • [ – ] KinTailFox reply Its so nice to see this challenge still has legs. Dude, what an awesome video and congrats again on your 300! You're doing so well and your tips are great. Keep on keeping on!
  • [ – ] aaliyah_holt1995 reply That intro was cool
  • [ – ] TastySnackies reply 10/10 intro
  • [ – ] MrATAndreiThomas reply I learned SEO back in spring 2015 and I know how stay consistent and keep engaging with viewers. When generally I make videos I don't do it for popularity. I do my videos cause I love doing them, if my channel grows, it grows! And if it doesn't, it simply doesn't. I just keep going
    • BrianAiya parent reply knowledge in SEO is a good skill to have these days. I understand what you mean, i made this guide because for example there might be a very good singer who is old school and don't use social media and his talent might go unnoticed. There are many good creators in this website, but sometimes they just upload and let it sit there, i feel like it would be a pity if you don't be interactive in the community. Anyways you are one of the OG in vidme :) you are the one who should give tips for us ;)
  • [ – ] WebNoob reply Do dank shit. You'll grow real fast then.
  • WooFit reply Thank you for the great tips my man! Im very new to vidme and trying to LEARN. I appreciate your heart and honesty!
  • [ – ] TheDebraSanchez reply This is a really good video. Dude, you've got some moves.
  • [ – ] ProjectKillJoy reply Aiya! You never answered the question all of us came for!!!!! Why ARE you so handsome ;)
  • [ – ] UnarmoredForce reply Your content has changed from the youtube days! Awesome intro dude! The vidme community seems super cool from what I have gathered from reading comments sections and what not!
  • BeybladeGalaxy reply Simple and great tips! Thanks for the video, man! I loved, and I didn't put my vidme link on my Twitter until I watched your video, so double thanks! LOL
  • [ – ] Tannimay reply This video could help people.
  • [ – ] Ms_K reply This was awesome!!!
  • [ – ] POVincent reply Thanks for the tips, Aiya. Only one that will be trouble for me is Twitter because I have never cared for it, even though I have one. I'm 21st century weirdo haha
    • [ – ] BrianAiya parent reply I was inactive in twitter, but i became active just because of Vidme and i don't regret it. Twitter is still the best place to find and talk to other people. Get into it xD in this era, we need to use other social media if we want to be content creators
  • [ – ] Ramona77 reply Thanks for the great advice.
  • [ – ] Voxgizer reply After watching this, I don't feel so bad about feeling like I can't hold a commentary while playing games. I'm naturally a quiet person, but I do like talking about things I love. (Who doesn't?) It can be a pretty odd place to be in. As a small creator coming in and still kind of trying to wrap my head around the fact that VidMe is the exact opposite of YouTube, this video really helped and really reinforced the idea of "just relax and have fun with it, ya goon." Thanks Aiya!
    • [ – ] BrianAiya parent reply I always thought that commentators recorded the game 1st and THEN they made a voiceover! Was I living a lie?!!! Yes, just have fun uploading here. Don't worry about algorithms and false copyright strikes.
      • Voxgizer parent reply Sometimes that's how it's done. I tend to do that with some of my videos. lol Trying to get better at recording both at once. Yea, it's gonna take some getting used to, for sure. I'm really loving it here, though.
  • [ – ] Andy reply im liking the vidme community so far, way easier to get along with people than youtube
  • [ – ] GamerRaf reply You are totally right! That is where real success lies. The more people you interact with the better.
  • [ – ] BreakingDames reply Loving the content man! Keep it up, look forward to seeing more from you. :D
  • [ – ] JacksNightmares reply Love the intro man XD
  • [ – ] AdamUPNow reply Lol a random balloon in your pocket.
  • [ – ] IgnisCobra reply Great video keep it up
  • [ – ] IAmCKtv reply MAN it's been a month since I've been able to make videos and to see how amazing your growth is awesome! SUPER happy for you and love the message here, interaction is probably one of the best things about this community on Vidme! Keep on grinding bro
    • [ – ] BrianAiya parent reply Yeaa man. Miss your vids. I know your are editing for other channels now. Maybe hire someone to edit your vids? LOL. Thanks for support. Hope you and Nick will upload a vid soon!
  • [ – ] bendaspoon reply That intro was amazing
  • [ – ] S1Husky reply It's refreshing to see the community over here actually interacting with each other. Over on Youtube I've had bigger channels suggest I start asking for likes, subs, etc in my content. But I always hated the idea of doing that because it feels....just disingenuous to me. It's just nice to find a platform where, at least from what I've seen so far, creators and fans can interact without it being for some ulterior motive. :)
    • [ – ] BrianAiya parent reply i feel you. I know that now you see a "subscribe button" that LITERALLY was announced yesterday. But i'm letting you know that ALL of us creators had no idea when monetization would come. Those with ulterior motive didn't do well in this community, but those who still stayed here and interacted with the followers and supported other creators where the ones that grew. Vidme may not have the numbers, but the quality of the bond in the community is strong because ALL of us came from YT, so we share this similar story. As you said, don't do things that feel disingenuous to you, people can sense that BS. Good luck with your channel dude.
      • S1Husky parent reply Thanks! So far this site reminds me of old school Youtube, back when having 10k subs got you in the top 10 list. Back when channels grew for being community rich and entertaining instead of who paid the most in to adwords campaigns. It's new and yet also charmingly nostalgic in that sense.
  • [ – ] Aliquem reply I think vidme is a pretty swell place, I think it's easier to communicate with people. I made this my primary home along with Twitch. My thing is I like live streaming because I can directly interact with people in the now instead of throwing up a video where I can't immediately react, aside from comments haha. Good video dude. It's always great to share positivity.
    • [ – ] BrianAiya parent reply Nice to see that you are focusing on Vidme and twitch. BTW do you hear about Beam.pro ? It's like the Vidme of Twitch. Many streamers are moving there.
      • [ – ] Aliquem parent reply I did make an account and I think I might start streaming there on off days. It looks promising. I've had my account on Justin.tv/Twitch.tv for 7 yrs think it might be time for a change... or at least I will try streaming to both platforms considering I have a bot that allows both chats to communicate with each other. I'll see how it goes. :P
  • [ – ] DyslexiCBeanie reply Just Uploaded my first video to Vid.me Great channel man. <3
  • [ – ] Calibri_Funtimes reply Congratulations on 300 followers!! You're such a leader in the community! Great advice!
  • [ – ] RowRegen reply Sick intro
  • [ – ] MeetingSkylar reply haven't been on the platform for long, but i hope to find more content creators that has refreshing contents, and hopefully along the way, be able to create good content that people enjoy:) really enjoyed this vid!!
    • BrianAiya parent reply you make really good content too. If you become more active here im sure your channel will grow really fast! thanks for commenting and watching :)
  • cannotaccess reply Everyone watch +JoesphGames
  • [ – ] MarzieMalfoy reply Congrats dude!!! Yeah, I keep forgetting about the hashtags. You are right, it is our time to shine!
  • [ – ] bononoz1 reply I get an average of around 7-12 views per video, and I'm getting followers pretty slowly, it's kind of hard to engage my followers cause they don't commend, btw I make discussion type videos, my recent videos have been about World of Warcraft.
    • [ – ] BrianAiya parent reply getting followers slowly is better than not getting any followers. Just keep it up. comment more on other people's content and find people who have the same interest like you.
      • bononoz1 parent reply Totally agree, that's how I gained 2 of my followers, maybe I should be on this site a little more often.
  • [ – ] JohnBirdMedia reply Your intros don't half make me giggle man! 😂
  • [ – ] WolfandRaptor reply THE FOLLO-SUBCRIB-FOLLAHHHHHHHH
  • [ – ] UnicornQueen reply That intro tho 😂
  • [ – ] Proto reply I love you Aiya. Well deserved.
  • [ – ] Metal_Replay_Gaming reply i just joined vidme today but i'm already loving the community!
  • [ – ] Ripstar reply I love vidme, but I can't grow because I only post a video every few months. wish I could post more. Oh I followed you @Aiya Btw this is great
    • BrianAiya parent reply thanks for following! Better to post videos every few months than nothing. Maybe now that it's Easter or when it's summertime, hope you can upload more.
  • [ – ] DragonGod reply Wow this video was great, I just came from youtube after having my channels deleted. Thanks for the good suggestions, I will take a look at someone of the tools you suggested
    • BrianAiya parent reply your channel got deleted? That sucks! Welcome to Vidme then :) Yea, if you need any more advice about Vidme, just message me.
  • Roamancing reply Chuckling. You get people asking how you get so handsome often, do you? I agree with you on Vidme accounts no longer being small channels once they hit over 100 followers. Awesome tips here, and totally on point. Loving your energy.
  • [ – ] EmeraldMasterPixed reply I've been active on VidMe more over the past few days, so that's a plus, but what's wrong with gaming videos, what you got againest them, I make gaming videos.....what are you gettin' at by sayin' that, that Let's Play and Montage gaming video are bad? Enlighten me on what you mean, cause I gots personality, I'm a goods person and I make gaming videos, so what are you sayin' here, you gooey gloopy goose cracker? You sayin' gaming videos are bad, ya wanna fight bruh, I have 824 confirmed frags in Overwatch, you wanna 1v1, bruh?! I'll rekt you! ᕦ( ಠзಠ)ᕤ (And then ironically upload a bad, cringy CoD montage that's in 144p@5FPS and choose to not act like my normal self just to try and be cool but fail, where as in my videos I normally act like myself and enjoy myself, just shy is all.) (But on a serious not, what is your opinion on gaming content that actually have the creator's true self in the video and not an scripted character?)
    • [ – ] BrianAiya parent reply damn bro, slow down! Well it's good that you are more active here, that's really good. Hmm, i don't have any problem with gaming vids, it's how you deliver it. Sometimes it's more entertaining if it's a scripted character, because not everyone's true self is entertaining. There are many gamers, but not everyone can give what viewers want. However i prefer authenticity than scripted character, but like i said, especially gaming, many people do it, and you have to find what makes you different from others. Maybe you found a way to interact more with your viewers? or you find games that are weird and less popular. Anyone can play the same game, but every video is different. In the end of the day Personality is the most important but it takes a lot of time to get used to the camera and knowing how to improvise instead of having silent gaps and "ehmmm's" when you play.
      • EmeraldMasterPixed parent reply Fair points, as of late I've been more so tryin' to avoid things that would cause potential boredom or influence lack of interest. For the most part, I can see that when I've watched other creators, it can help shape you more into a person that would be more interestin'. This is why I've been tryin' to adapt the montage/best bits type of format over the span of videos that are noramally as long as 15mins/30mins and up. I know inspiration plays a MASSIVE role in this and well, I choose to entertain by means of comedy if I can, always have wanted to get people to laugh, but of course, I want to have fun while I do this which is equally important, if you don't enjoy yourself, well you could be makin' a bland visual for yourself and your content. Let's Plays are fun an all, but I know @MariaTheGerman, @AJPatz, @IAmCKtv and @Belcoot have went with the ol' montage format and it works so much better because it's a series of comedic snipets. So what better way to learn more about these new f...moreormats than to try to make them for your channel and for yourself for the sake of fun and learnin'! Again, you made good points about this, I did get maybe a /little/ offended about the gamin' videos bit, but I decided to be silly about it and ask rather than be toxic as I choose to not be toxic to people that I don't even know. I'll just bitch, moan and spout my ranty toxic bullshit to myself in empty places where no one can hear me so I don't spread the toxicity and also so people don't think I'm crazy! ;P Oh and my original comment was meant as a silly "u wana fite me bro" type of thing, so it be jokes, all in good fun!

  • [ – ] Iannis_Hour reply With that black hat is like you have changed your face :)) Or this is just my oppinion?
