Hi,

At the moment I have just over 30k subscribers and I upload daily and have between 600k and 700k views a month. I make gaming video which don't take a lot of time recording and editing.

So I'm planning to upload twice because I have the ideas + time.

Anyone who also made the switch from uploading daily to twice a day? Curious if the numbers went up or not.

Moved to the strategy / technique forum. :)

Personally, I think you'd very quickly burn out and get sick of making videos. The quality would suffer and people would notice.

Most viewers only have x amount of time to watch videos and they'll tend to watch the videos they consider to be the "best". Making twice as many videos won't result in twice as many views. :)

If I'm able to reach 1 million views a month it would be my full-time job. So the hobby turns into a job. So I have to sacrifice to make it happen. I spent 90 mins per video, recording/edit/thumbnail/uploading. So 3 hours a day should be easy for a full-time job.

If it were me, I'd do the opposite. - I'd upload less frequently but make better quality videos. My experience is viewers are willing to wait for good content and are more likely to share it when they watch it. Look at the hundreds of thousands of gamers who upload every day but who never grow. They're just doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Gamers seem to think they must upload every day because pewdiepie does it and he's a huge channel.

Good luck, whatever you decide. :)

It sounds like your channel is doing very well if you are already at 600- 700,000 views per month. You should get to your goal of 1 million views per month quite soon.

Since you say you have both the ideas and the time to produce two videos per day, I say "why not?". If you find that you are burning out or the quality is suffering you can always dial it back down to one per day again.

A lot of YouTubers grow by testing out new ideas...so test it out and see what happens. Don't forget to let us know the results!
