Does faceless branding work?

Funny thing is I just bought a face cam and I'm not sure if I should do face videos. Mainly because the background is always busy.

I think much like an intro, if it obstructs the quality of your vids, you shouldn't really have one.

if its still entertaing who cares about the face
My feelings exactly! If your point is to entertain, inform or whatever - just do that and people will appreciate it I think. No need to show your face unless that's what you want.

There are two examples that I know of:

Petscop
Alantutorial

...well, three if you count 2H23

None of those channels shows the face as part of their branding.

I haven't shown my face (I'm a gaming channel which is kinda weird not to do lol) ... and I'll probably will not do it until 500K subs cause I'm not in a pressure to show my face. I heard a lot that showing your face HELPS your audience feel more CONNECTED and probably is true,,, but in 3 months since I uploaded my first video and almost 5K subs I've been doing fine without showing my face so who knows? I don't think showing face = success :shrug:
