I can see the appeal of it, you’ve just started your channel and you need subs to get views. You want your channel to grow fast and sub4sub seems like the easiest way to get that.
But here’s something nobody tells you when you first start, subs don’t equal success or views. Let that sink in a moment, you heard it right. Subs do not equal success, they’re just a number and if you get sub4sub subscribers they’re gonna be inactive, they don’t equal more views and they’re not interested in you or your content, they’re a shell, an empty number. Then you’ll see as YouTube hurts your channel as it sees your subs to views ratio doesn’t add up, then it penalises your channel and content by not promoting it to other viewers.
The best way to gain subs and to gain viewers is to create good quality content, be honest and genuine and connect with other people, not with the sole purpose of gaining subs but because you actually want to know them and be a part of their life.
Once you start doing that then you’ll see people coming to watch your stuff, and, they’ll stick around. Once they’re on your channel the one thing you mustn’t do is, forget about them, keep them interested by connecting with them on social media, in the comments section and comment on their stuff if they’re a fellow YouTuber.
Just a quick one today guys and girls. Never sub4sub, nobody wins, if you have started doing sub4sub, stop immediately and unsubscribe the ones that you’re doing it to, you’re only hurting each others channels.
