Any tips for growing a cubing YouTube channel?
I have a YouTube channel where I make content that is unique and relates to events in the cubing community. I even had a nationals prediction video where I got over 900 views, but I’m stuck at 47 subscribers. Does anyone have tips for helping my channel to grow? I’ll link my channel, pb&jcubing here. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCcwjvMuBHnjf5IjJKnsUjlw

Wondering if people could give some feedback on my videos and what I could be doing better. Don't feel obliged to sub or like, I'm just requesting some constructive feedback.
Thanks.

I watched your review of the 354M.

Some thoughts:

1) The stuff at the beginning is rough and jumpy. If you're going to do "action" shots where you pan from one thing to another, it's gotta be smoother.

2) There's a weird red light that appears on the cube for a couple seconds.

3) For the solve footage, I would recommend placing the camera up higher. The angle is a little too flat right now, IMHO.

4) I would also recommend covering up the window as your camera is picking up the light from the window and underexposing the rest of the frame as a result. In addition, the sunlight creates a bright white "hot" spot in the footage where the picture is blown out. Alternatively, film closer to the window and actually use the light for lighting the picture.

5) In general, try to bring more light into the video. Things are nice and visible but could be brighter.

6) Good job on the audio. You're plenty loud enough and clear. And you're not killing us with music that's way too loud. Well done!


Good luck with your channel.

Thanks so much for taking the time to deconstruct my video. I'm definitely going to apply some of these techniques into my videos. Thanks again.

I have a Taiwanese cubing channel called "魔方兄弟Cubing Brothers".

My channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCM3S-vIuoOsMN1jGWElZPww

It is a collab channel between me and two of my friends. We do unboxings, reviews, tutorials and on our channel.

Though this channel may not be useful to most people here due to language problems, but please still sub it so more Taiwanese can see it!

i am wanting to make a youtube channel but am totally lost for what to call it, any ideas?
I can't give ideas, but I have advise...
Be creative, do something that hasn't been done already. Don't make it XYCuber, as there's already countless of those. Don't do a knockoff of J Perm either with something like T Perm or whatnot, that's been overdone. Look at ColorfulPockets, he has a clever and unique channel name. If it takes time and effort to come up with, it's likely a good name, or at least a good starting point for a name.
