    I used smoke stock footage from here: videocopilot.net /blog/2011/12/new-tutorial-and-free-stock-footage/ (sorry can't post proper link)
    It's done using alpha channel so no need to remove green screen.

    I think they also might be whom I call "quick learners". You are right about the audience. I noticed for kids channels, unless you are very big, only about 5% of subscribers would watch videos in the first 2 days. Not sure if the same for non-kids niche.

    Kids/toys generally seem to be stuck in the 5% range due to ingrained factors. Other verticals are quite different, I hear beauty/makeup sub % viewership is fairly large, so are vlogs and family type channels. But I would also guess that someone like Tiara from Toys&Me would have a larger subscriber viewership as her fans would be older (and hence have their own devices) and she would have a strong personal following, as opposed to a learn colors me2 startup that is trendy and tag shadowing but has not built that personal connection with viewers.

    Yep, totally agree - unless the channel is for the whole family, it would only be 5% max. I released a new video yesterday and at the moment have 7 views - 2 from me and 5 from someone else. I have 70 subs (all are non-S4S but most from adwords).

    If you have some time for investigations, detective KTR, what do you think about this one: UC40djlNzUdLyzB9ujxCENYA What made it perform so well straight from the beginnings? Looks like no networks/redirects are involved.

    And on the other hand, why this one doesn't perform better despite following the trends and quality being OK? UCVJtqUt7nnRByWoPlZzLqvQ

    Thanks!

    I think that most at drawing-painting-coloring getting 5% unless they pay for ads.

    This days in coloring and painting trending subjects are - poop, hearts,circles and hundreds channels repeating this. I decided to draw trains form Thomasand Friends ,create train fans base that will watch every train drawing I do. I design all of my drawings myself and it takes a bit of time but no one doing it now the way I do. I am additing smoke effects and will add more staff later that will make a child watch learn and hopefully draw the picture later. I am planing to upload free PDF of my trains to Patreon may be in a month or two.Plans plans I need more day time to execute them

    Just on hash tags...

    I think the reason why hash tags are just coming in to the fore is because they were only enabled in the spring of 2016 - apparently without any specific announcement. Possibly to avoid the PR consequence of being seen as moving into Twitter's space.

    I could be way wrong about this, but I recollect reading when I first started on YT that hash tagging was even considered a community use violation and it could get your channel into hot water with a strike. I think that's why nobody was doing it. If that was ever true, that doesn't appear to be the case now.

    Additional points:

    If you search a hash tag, your search result only produces videos with that specific tag in the title or description.

    Use sparingly, I read using 15 or more hashtags results in all hashtags being ignored. My guess is if you use too many you get a weaker ranking on each one.
