Some good tips here smile.gif These things will seem fairly obvious to long time youtube content creators but for those just starting to build their views and subscribers, these are the kinds of things that are easy to mess up. Especially at first. You'd eventually figure this stuff out from making these mistakes that he is talking about here but listening to him and doing what he's suggesting can get you past the rookie mistakes and on to the next level.

If you want to try to expand your youtube presence, set a realistic goal (like anything else, including playing guitar) and work towards it. If you have 5 subscribers. Make 50 your first goal. Then 100, then 500, then 1000, and so on.

I have a thread in my instructor forum dedicated to this very topic. Promoting yourself online via youtube and other social media.

It was through youtube that I was able to get my endorsement deals. Having a strong youtube presence is important these days. And it's a level playing field in that anyone can start a channel, make good videos and do well smile.gif

Awesome Tips. I also looked at his free live lesson and he talks about really nice tips of how to improvise and be yourself. Really inspiring.

All the respect and love for Wallimann, but average 7700 per video is not successful (and his most viewed video got 195 likes and 1860 dislikes). The words are true though, and he is a killer guitarist smile.gif

True. But maybe for him it's a success. smile.gif Perhaps that's what he has in mind.

That's a good question. I just filtered his videos on his channel and it seems like his Guitar Rig 4 video is the most popular. It seems to have no trouble. ??? He doesn't get that many views, but he's doing better than me. biggrin.gif I'm trying over here!! laugh.gif

3 million video views and 12600 subscribers and you still don't call it a success? And he is getting all kinds of endorsements. Damn, you must be thinking Joe Satriani or Steve Vai. Wallimann is a good guitar player and not a shredder (which most people seems to be following/copying, think Andy James). And considering that, I guess he is pretty successful in my view. I hardly have 80 subscribers and 80 views per video. sad.gif

I remember he used to have 300 views per video and it seems its now 1500 or so. And he is producing his own content/ lessons. From practical point of view, doing lessons from metallica/RHCP/GNR and all that seems to get more views. Think Kris or Adrian. In that aspect too, I consider his a big success.
