I was seeing threads about "making it" on YouTube and I just wanted to share my advice. One of the things I think helps you gain an audience on YouTube is figuring out what you can do that is different. Look at the other channels in your genre and find out what they are doing and try to figure out what you can do differently. I feel like this is one of the big hurdles with Let's Play channels. There are so many of them that you have to figure out what really makes yours different than everyone else's.
