    What to do when the YouTube Algorithm hates you

    What to do when the YouTube Algorithm hates you

    No matter what you try, you can't get more than a few views on your video. Or, maybe you used to be growing, but now all of the sudden you aren't. Why did the algorithm turn on you? Why are there other channels in your niche that are doing the same thing you are, but are growing faster than you? Why does the algorithm favor them over you?
    So many good questions! We tackle them in this episode as well as what you should try next if any of those scenarios are true for you and your content on YouTube.

    Finally, we disagree! Who's right about titles, thumbnails, top videos, and more?

    Which is more important: titles or thumbnails? Should you delete your top performing video if it's an old video that's embarassing? What about keywords? And podcasting on YouTube? All good questions you asked and more that we answer today. The best part is that the YouTube Strategists in this episode don't all agree on what the right answer is to some of these questions.

    You're successful, but it's not all it's cracked up to be.

    You're successful, but it's not all it's cracked up to be.

    It's all wrapped up together: your YouTube channel, your business, your passion, your dreams for life, everything. Sometimes we get everything we wanted and, when we do, find out it's not really what we thought we wanted. Other times the success we're looking for feels unattainable. In both cases, the culprit is often an unclear vision for what we really want and a false assumption that the thing we think we want is the thing that will grant us peace and satisfaction.
    We started this conversation in an earlier episode titled, "The hustle mentality kills your soul. Invest into these 5 efforts for growth instead." You can listen to it here:

    Can you resurrect a YouTube channel? Maybe. Try this.

    Can you resurrect a YouTube channel? Maybe. Try this.

    Can you resurrect a stagnant channel or do you need to start over with a new channel? This is something we're working on ourselves here at Video Creators. For personal reasons, which I share in this episode, I had to stop making videos. Now we're getting back to resurrecting the channel. How do we get back to doing millions of views per month after taking a break for a while? That's what we discuss today.

    When you're stuck making the same videos over and over again

    When you're stuck making the same videos over and over again

    If you've been creating videos for any period of time now, it can sometimes be a struggle to come up with good video ideas. You feel like you're making the same video over and over again and are kind of bored with it. You may feel backed into a corner because your videos won't perform as well if you stray from the usual stuff. Or, maybe you feel like you've made every video there is to make in your niche. If you don't know what to do next and feel stuck despite your growth and success, this episode is for you. CREATOR SPOTLIGHT

    How to Find and Train a ROCKSTAR Virtual Assistant

    How to Find and Train a ROCKSTAR Virtual Assistant

    When I was starting my business and growing my channel, I quickly felt overwhelmed with how much work there was to do: email, shooting, editing, publishing, social engagement, creating products, writing sales pages, and more.
    I was reluctant to hire a virtual assistant because of the money and the time it would cost. But after I did it, I wished I had done it sooner. I made some initial mistakes at first, but was then able to start working on my business again instead of being stuck working in the business.
    Today we talk about some of my mistakes and how I find and train people today for my team in a way that enables us to move forward and take new ground as a business. And we'll do that by talking with my most recent hire, Katlyn, who is now my executive assistant.

The #1 choice for pros and hobbyists, alike!

As a long-time YouTube professional, I continue to be amazed at the wealth of new information from the show. (One time they even took a question from me directly into the show!) The hosts are all warm and amusing, making the many teachable moments a treat to listen to. This was the first YouTube podcast I subscribed to when I started a new full-time job as a YouTube manager, and I’ve been listening to it regularly and following their best practices ever since. I even purchased their “30 Days to a Better YouTube Channel” that I’m now applying to my second personal channel.

Like looking for a needle in a haystack

Not a top notch education podcast. Although they do manage excellent chemistry among the hosts, teasing out actually helpful information is painstakingly tedious among all the personal anecdotes.

I’m also concerned about sharing coaching clients stories without their presence or express permission…this is uncomfortable to listen to. Maybe their clients were fine with being held up as examples *anonymously, but it gives me pause to consider ANY coaching relationship in the future as my personal story may be co-opted for future content without my permission or knowledge. This does not make for a comfort listening experience.

ladylift ,

Too much talking about things non YouTube

I appreciate all the free advice, however, sometimes there are too many tangents and I end up skipping half the episode. Also, the females voice seems muffled where I can hear both males voices perfectly.
