    Hey guys, how are we all doing?

    Today i really just wanted to find out peoples opinion on beginning a new YouTube channel, what they expect and want and any advice to be honest, I currently have a trailer video which I love. It's a speed drawing of my Channel Art on YouTube. Tell me what you guys thinks, like and subscribe while your at it

    But back to the point, what do you guys expect from a youtube channel?

    Thanks

    Can you speed it up a little more? I also recommend using songs by Gucci and Waka flocka flame because that's what all the popular speed art drawing thingy channels use nowadays. Throwing in a bit of lil john wouldn't do any harm either.

    To answer the question, consistency. And good content. But consistency.

    Telling your friends mainly. Then go 'wow oniel this is great!' then proceed to share it. After they do that you go to sleep in your YOUTUBEMONAY and have the best sleep ever.

    I like it. I quite like the music too. I think music is quite important as it sets a vibe for the video. I like how you used something totally different for the converse video. What is it by the way?

    Also, in the face picture, why do you sometimes zoom in to the corner?

    As other things to consider - always give credit for music and link to online stores / social media sites (either one I think is fine), free licence or otherwise. Linking to other people is as beneficial to you as it is to them in terms of search engine optimisation. Do it on all your social media linking to that YouTube channel.

    Annotate the videos. Not annoying ones though telling us to "Cliek Haer Fore Moar", but insights in to what you're doing and maybe why. This helps people like me who have no idea about how you do that understand what and more importantly, why your're doing it. Of course, you could take it a step further and offer full or partial voice commentary. This can help your followers interact with your videos, giving you the chance to teach and also be taught.

    You may also want to think about creating a nice intro and outro / credits sequence (good for thanks and more interaction) to act as video header and footers. It's nice to also have an intro video explaining what you are starting with and where you want to go - helps people who don't know you work out what you're doing much quicker.

    Also, as a YouTube uploader, you are not tied to only doing one thing. You can create different series of videos. In your case, you could do really quick speed run videos (under 30 seconds or 1 minute - good for the kids), longer videos showing progression (like you already have) and analysis / tutorial videos so others can try what you're doing (longer, more in depth, any length of time so long as it's interesting and relevant). You can still do specials, one offs, fan interaction shows (say, a Q&A from your fans when you reach say 100 subscribers, 500 subs, whatever). Keep all these videos organised in to play lists too. Then people can series link and bosh through a whole load without lifting a finger.

    Just remember one thing. This is not your job (yet!), it is a hobby. Always allow time for yourself to relax and get away fro YouTube! :yep:

    Please be careful on putting popular songs due to their copyright and you won't be able to partner with a network nor be able to generate any income in the future if you get a copyright strike for using music of artists you don't have permissions for.

    I won't leave you hanging on the music though and leave you without a solution.

    There are channels you can simply take the music from and put in the description of your video of the song.

    There is one here called:

    ByeByeCopyright
    NoCopyrightSounds

    Here are the links - Check them out, they have tons of different music.

    http://www.youtube.com/user/NoCopyrightSounds
    http://www.youtube.com/user/ByeByeCopyright

    I hope this advice helps you out alot. Keep up the speed art and hope to see you growing and developing your craft.
