    It doesn't seem a deal as big as some say this schedule thing is and I know it depends on the type of content and the "routine" the viewers of a channel are used to - but what about the sole fact that you're just starting with your science channel?

    To me as a beginner doing everything but the voice-over, a schedule seems a little daunting. I simplify the complexity of an animation if I'm in a rush and it's a defeating feeling but to imagine doing that to achieve the schedule of my YouTube channel with viewers expecting a video? Wow.

    If it really is important to have it I would make it work but what about just the first 3 months after you launch - how important it is than?

    For new channels I don't think uploading on a schedule, meaning on specific day and specific time, is that important. But uploading consistently is very important. With new YouTube algorithm that prioritize watch time to rank your videos, I would say publishing more frequently is the best solution.
    As you channel gains more subscribers, it makes sense you publish your videos on schedule, because your viewers now really expect new videos from you and they want to know when your new videos are published. I hope this helps.

    I think it's important in the beginning more than in the long run honestly..I don't want to subscribe and follow a channel that I'm not sure when they are going to upload. I follow people now that I know they upload at this time of this day and some even daily, I'm not saying that it is an absolute deal killer but I believe a schedule is very important and if you scheduled out 3 days a week that you can upload at a certain time then that could really benefit you. People like a routine whether you believe it or not, if you have to batch produce videos so that it's easier to hit your timeline.

    Hey, thank you phoebechitchat for your view and the facts. I agree 100% re the importance or rather the advantage of having a schedule when the channel establishes a viewership. Than - I will do it for sure. Re the frequency, I'm planning 2 uploads /week with my current means. I'm doing the kind of channel which will upload less frequently but higher quality videos. (I hope)... So perhaps for that reason even more such channels need a schedule, since the viewers can't naturally expect a new video every day.... Yes, thank you.

    Thank you Skyler! I also agree with you that it's more important in the beginning than in the long run. It's logical. I think if you could look at how people across the board subscribe to YouTube channels, I'm sure you'd find that the amount of people for whom a schedule plays a considerable role when deciding to subscribe, is worth considering as a creator. The fact is that you should have as much to offer as possible, especially when you're small. A schedule it is than. Thank you guys!
