"Niche Down if you want to grow on YouTube" - this is something that we often tell creators when we see that their channel covers many topics. However, this is often met with resistance.
YouTube Creators don't want to be "stuck" covering one topic or being placed in a box.
So in this episode of TubeTalk, I chat with Abbey Howe who was also resistant to the idea of niching her channel. Out of frustration, she did ...

"I have listened to the expert's advice but my channel is still not growing - what am I doing wrong?"
This is a common question that we often see during our vidIQ Training Livestreams.
On today’s episode of TubeTalk we address this issue. Why is your channel really not growing even when you listen to all the advice we give?
The answer is actually not complicated so on Today’s episode you will learn:
Many of us create youtube videos when we have some free time. Since we don't have much time, we tend to rush in, put something together that will hopefully get us more views and more subscribers.
But I wonder how much attention are we giving to the stuff that matters such as structure, the audience, and standing out in a saturated niche?
On today's episode of TubeTalk, I chat with Gwen Miller, the VP of Content for Kin. Gwen ...
Today's topic is all about your Youtube channel page - are you set up for success or is it actually costing you views and subscribers? Are you using Playlists effectively to keep your audience engaged and watching more of your content?

I chat with vidIQ’s own ...
We are constantly looking for methods to get our videos to rank on YouTube. The better the videos perform, the more views we get which then turn into subscribers.
One tool that YouTube has is the automatic captioning tool.
This essentially puts into text the words you are saying in your video.
Besides that fact that that is not 100% percent accurate, does captioning your video really help your video's performance? Do captions gi...

"I don't want to be pigeonholed" is something I hear often from YouTubers.
I find this strange.
Being pigeonholed essentially means that you are THE expert on a topic, why would you NOT want to be that?
Being niche on YouTube means that you become known for that niche. So whenever people want that info, they instantly know where to look!
But how do you dominate a niche? Is YouTube too saturated so every niche is taken?

As much as we love creating amazing videos and uploading them to YouTube, at a point we realize that being a creator isn't free. It costs money. Events, equipment, editing, tools, etc.
Of course, YouTube ad revenue is superb but its only one source of revenue.
