I get asked this over and over and over again by friends, my comment section and my clients.

WHY AM I NOT GROWING ON YOUTUBE?

But then you look at their channel and they are just not being the basics right. Its like a blind spot and sometimes I feel that direct brutal honesty can help shake that brain fuzz.

Maybe this video can help members of the Fastlane Forum. ALSO please tell me your pet peeves when it comes to people whinging about their progression on ANY goal :)

Sadly I faced this reply last time :(

I am not here to promo. Im here to share ideas. I currently make daily videos and this is the first i've posted here in weeks... surely if I was here to spam/promo id be spamming my arse off by now.

I'd love to know what are you YouTube pet peeves. What things boil your piss and needs to be removed from the currently toxic youtube puddle?

Quite a coincidence that your "shared ideas" always have to do something with your videos. You started 3 threads, 2 of them are about your vids.

I currently make daily videos and this is the first i've posted here in weeks...
It's also the only thing you posted in weeks. Stop fooling yourself. I'm quite sure that if a mod says you can't post videos here anymore, we will never see you again on this forum.

Point taken... I need to interact with the forum more often and without the videos... fair point and I apologise if I have come across blind to that fact. Not my intent.

The classic tell between who is here to promote and who is here to add value.

To be fair, he acknowledges that he needs to interact more. Perhaps he will stick around and become a valuable contributor.

There is a bit of irony in proselytizing to know the way on YouTube when you only have 1.1k subscribers after 10 months and approximately 129 videos. You earn roughly 8.5 subs per video. Not saying there isn't any merit to the work you've done producing content, but I have videos that have more views than your entire channel combined and I did that on accident. Should I start making YouTube advice/rant videos too?

I sympathize with you to some extent, growing my newest channel has been a very slow process and is nowhere near where it should be, but you don't seem qualified to be giving the advice you are. It seems you simply caught wind of the idea to sell shovels (youtube advice) during a gold rush (everyone wanting to be a youtuber these days.) Which is smart in theory, except you don't have the authority to do so in a way that's valuable. It'd be like if MJ tried to write the The Millionaire Fastlane and was still broke and living at home. No one would have read it.

Personally I dont like videos in which just one guy keep on speaking. Its like listening to a monologue in a boring movie.Videos should be made more interactive .
I also think you are here for marketing your own channel rather than providing any value. You are not ready to give to the forum just want some subscribers who ultimately (you think )will buy stuff or tips/tricks whatever you selling .I checked last thread you started ..there also fellow forum members called you out.And here again I see you starting a new thread for promoting your content .
I am sorry to be harsh but your intention is not to 'Give' but to 'Take'.
Anyway I wish you all the best .

Very true - It was more of a general observation. I hope he does stick around and switch up his postings.

I had/have a channel with 43K subs and 20Million+ Views, and after 5 years I wanted to teach people how to do that. The new channel is new but I get more out of it personally, I like to teach people and help people.

Gaming?

Watched the video, very well done and you're good on camera. But then again, anyone with a British accent sounds great to Americans.;)

Yup! Moved up to Yorkshire 8 years back.... tbh Im much happier getting out of Medway.
I dont blame you, Medways the crime capital, although im in the country outskirts, I avoid the towns, I plan on moving away, maybe to the West country.
