  1. Hey Brian, You helped me to achieve 2,00,000 subscribers in 16 months in my old channel. You are great and informative. I get motivated and educated from your all videos. Well, i was following you since you had 1200 subscribers. Well, i am sharing this message because, Again i created new Channel in Indian HINDI language. So, I am again going to grow that new channel to grow my channel. Even, I am using white background videos like your old Videos. But, i need to learn more things but, i will learn it soon as time grows. Well, thanks MAN… Boomm BOOM BOOM…… Pixie DUST………

  2. The metadata has a purpose its just not a mechanism you can use to game the system. in terms of audience retention do you take into account the Wadsworth constant? I’m curious how a video would perform if you start with the meat of the content? with short attention spans is the bumper hurting us at this point if it is generally skipped over in favor of consuming more content in a shorter amount of time?

    1. Good question on the bumper, as for a short answer. I would incorperate one for sure, however the shorter, the better.

      If you can split test with or without a bumper, even better.

      Lastly, format matters. If I do a short, three minute or less video. I do not use a bumper.

    1. I think it’s fine, most viewers are not going to behave in this manner. Sure, binge watching is a thing … and it can positively impact the channel. But, most will subscribe if they binge watch I believe.
