  1. Being a Youtuber focused on one specific series is probably the most miserable experience ever. 

    I don't understand how you can make an entire channel dedicated to one specific series and think you're gonna support yourself off that, it makes no sense. 

    Forget Sonictubers, Poketubers are just as bad. Shofu said it best, if you're focused on just one thing, you're not gonna get very far, and he's somebody who started as a Poketuber before just focusing on anything that caught his interest.

     

    BRANCH OUT DAMMIT, stop limiting yourself to one thing.

      I know nothing about YT (nor really want to) and while I agree with what you're saying, I don't think it's always quite that simple.

      Even from a viewer's perspective, I can't tell you how many channels I've unsubscribed from due to them no longer covering the content I cared about. I'd imagine that a lot of YTers rather not see their numbers drop drastically when they're just finding success like that.

      That being said, the most successful YTers I've seen are those that can tackle a wide range of topics and just generally have the personality to back it up.

      Though at the same time, I think it's also really up to viewers to be able to filter out the content they want or don't want. If a channel doesn't meet your needs there's no real need to obsess over them. The "Not Interested" button is your friend.

      It really is a 'depends on the situation' kind of deal.

      If I ever do videos, it'd be video essays for myself only without the strings of being a creator.

      I think you can focus on a specialist subject, but you need to be creative in your own right as well if you want to have a constant output, or build up a level of quality and trust with your audience that allows you to only make content when you deem it worthy of being made, rather than just for the sake of it.

      That's why when I made my Youtube channel, I made it into a movie or TV show reviewing channel where I can review any kind of movie or TV series that's being released at the moment or has caught my interest.  Therefore, I will always have content on my channel because there will always be a new movie or TV series coming out every year that I can talk about on my channel.  The problem sometimes with doing a channel based on one franchise is that you don't know if the franchise is going to keep going or if there's any news regarding the franchise being released.

      But then again, it ultimately comes down to what your audience wants and what you want to do with your channel.

      Haven't checked in a long while on Jwittz, how is he doing?

      If you are going to pick one franchise, it needs to be something with consistent content to cover. Sonic just doesn't release frequently to do that unless you actually dedicate yourself to covering stuff like the comics and the mobile game

      @JezMM Yeah, I'll only watch a channel full of TV episode long videos about a specific subject if the information is well researched and either not easily searchable online or presented in a way that ties information from various sources in an engaging, memorable way. Cybershell posts rarely, but when he does, he generally knows what he's talking about in a way that distinguishes him from the glut of other Sonic commentators. False Swipe Gaming is also interesting because he often brings up unexpected uses for various Pokemon, but the nature of competitive Pokemon means even his videos get repetitive after a while.

      I'd honestly hate myself if I only focused on one thing. I have a ton of interests and I like to talk about them all.

      @Your Vest Friend it’s more in lines of the topic at hand. Like doing video essays is cool but soley focusing on 1 topic all the time is bad.

      YouTube is a fickle career path as it is; it’s really hard to make it big and when you do, you gotta do whatever you can to maintain viewership. I can’t imagine what it’s like when you focus on one franchise.

      What happens if the franchise starts losing popularity? If it hasn’t had new content or updates in a while? If it ends altogether? Do you keep covering that franchise and get significantly less views, or do you move onto a new franchise and risk losing the fans who subscribed for content on the franchise you’re not covering anymore?

      @piko  That's the problem with focusing your YouTube channel on just one franchise.  You just don't know when that franchise is going out of style or if there's any content coming out of that franchise.  That's why I don't make YouTube my career path because making money off of YouTube requires you to post up videos frequently and sometimes you can't just do that.
