Hey all, Probably a lot of post on here about this, but wanted to talk to some people who have started out falling for the sub4sub crap. So there I am, fresh faced youtuber wondering how the hell do I get people to notice my channel. Upon searching "how to get subscribers" the page fills up with "100 subs in a week" video's, and "shout-out" channels. All of which are promising "Community" and "helping each other grow" lines. So I think, ok..I suppose this is how everyone starts out! Next thing I know I'm trawling through sub for sub comment sections in shout-out vids. Long story short, I end up with over 100 subs in a month and getting views and comments of how great the vids are. But something's not adding up.... As you would know, nobody is actually watching. The average watch times are a minute at best. Not only that, I become so scared of losing subs, I turn around and do the same thing. "Staying active" they call it. Clicking on a vid, commenting how good it is and moving on. OMG..I'm one of those channels!! How did I fall for this?? I'm done... I hate this....this is not what I want my channel to be. I think the only thing to do is unsubscribe from everyone and move on. I'm even thinking of deleting my vids that are full of "I subbed and liked, sub back?" comments. Anyway, just needed to put this out there somewhere. Would love to here from anyone that's gone through a similar experience. Let me know how you've dealt with it and what the outcome was. Cheers all DJ.
