    Hey guys,

    I've been making videos on YouTube pretty much every week fir the last six months.

    My videos have gotten a lot better from a production standpoint and I have narrowed down my subject matter, but can't seem to get new subs.

    I mainly review movies but sometimes I review comics.

    Do you have any advice for advertising my channel and getting new subs?

    6 months is pretty good for 40 subs in my eyes.

    If you insist on growing faster, I recommend linking your videos on Reddit (use caution), as well as utilizing Twitter. This will multiply your exposure, given you are a very young channel. Best of luck!

    I always post on Reddit and Twitter when I upload. Usually I post on r/filmcritic. Any idea of other subs that might get me some exposure?

    I would second the twitter and reddit suggestions, but when your channel is still in start up mode there are things you might try just to get you a little further along.

    First and foremost I would recommend real life interactions. Have you gotten ALL of your friends who might be willing to subscribe subbed? Are there any meetup groups in your area or special interest clubs for people who like to watch/critique movies? Meet some people, you could luck into a few subscribers that way, might even find people willing to help with your channel or start a network of channels that can grow together.

    The way YouTube is changing these days it is less and less friendly to helping new channels grow and/or delivering meaningful search traffic so YOU have to force it to grow more so than in the past.

    Hi @Jared Poirier

    "How to grow my channel?" questions like this are too general and this question has been asked and answered lots of times already. Since the answers don't really change, these threads get locked. Otherwise the forum would be full of them. :)

    Here are some sections to check out (but there is no need to start a new thread):

    http://yttalk.com/forums/youtube-tips-tutorials-help-guides.91/
    http://yttalk.com/forums/youtube-video-marketing-strategy-seo.88/

    Also, please use the forum search: http://yttalk.com/search/?type=post

    Active members looking for specific advice for their channel based on their existing channel or videos may ask for a review in the review forum. (http://yttalk.com/forums/reviews-channel-feedback.64/ ) The review forum is the only forum where our active members can ask for feedback on their videos and channel (including artwork). We like to keep that sort of thread out of the main forums. :) If the thread complies with the review forum rules (at the top of the review forum), then it will be approved by a member of staff.
