My goal is for now hitting 200 subs ( at 191 atm) and do a 200 Subs QandA video. I also thought of releasing MotoGinji merch on my 200 subs milestone from Teespring. But im not sure about that last one. And afterwards my next milestone is 250 subs, then 500 subs milestone.

For my instagram i am aiming to go to 2.5k followers.
Facebook and Twitter i don't really care for for now.

MotoGinji I’m just a little behind you in subs at 168 but the more I or my channel evolves the less subs become important to me. I’ve looked at my analytics and 80% of my views are from non subscribers. I’m not sure if this is a good thing but it can’t be bad either I suppose. Next goal is 10000 views which is about 350 away. I’ll maybe look at merchandising for a bit of fun when I get a thousand subs but I reckon that’ll be years down the line to be fair. I might do myself a baseballs cap and t-shirt combo for when I’m on screen and some stickers for my bike or skidlid maybe.

Where do you do your stickers? I am looking for MotoGinji Stickers for a while, maybe rubber keychains or something. But here in Holland there aren't that many places that do them. So i'm looking for a place that can make them and do international shipping

search google for Veloink ..... awesome small business in US. Ship worldwide. They do bicycle stickers for your name etc. design your own around their templates. Great quality.

Considering your type of content, with it being primarily offering riding tips and advice, I'd say it is a good thing, especially considering the size of your channel, as it means you are showing up in people's searches on YouTube. I guess a good target would be to maintain that 1:4 ratio and have all your subs watch all your vids, that way you'll grow subs fast!

Yeh it’s interesting. I’m lucky I work shifts as I get some days to myself to work on content and try get my head around tags etc. Understanding what works and doesn’t is a bit of a lottery sometimes in relation to what ticks the algorithm for searches. It’s good fun watching the progress and learning though. Weird how some stuff gets reasonable traffic and other stuff bugger all. I revisit and adjust any uploads that appear to be slow performers and that helps. There’s so many little things and not one that needs attention to make it click. Fine lines. Finding a decent thumbnail template and font took me months and I’m still not 100% happy haha.

I'd like to reach 5k before Jan 2020, and average 1.2k views per video consistently.

I've upped my rate of upload from every other week to every week, actively responding to all comments, commenting on other people's videos as much as I can, and trying to make engaging content with very few lulls. Alternating between travel vlogs and searchable content like list videos etc.

Kidding, my next goal is to update my channel art and change up my thumbnails, I realize that I was taking the lazy mans approach to them and that I could do a better job. Especially for videos where I want to show a glimpse of what to expect (you know like how thumbnails are meant to be used).
I also want to start a blog, something where I can post write-ups on my how-to's and packing lists for my camping trips.

I guess mine is not to let my channel wither away, while I'm sorting out changes in my life.
I have posted very few videos lately. I try to concentrate on the topics now, to compensate my lack of editing and shooting skills. Hopefully there will still be people who will want to watch when I can post more videos again :p

In that same situation here. Don’t panic. Keep it alive by the odd comment on other people’s uploads or an Instagram post if you have it. I’m about to get busy after a dry couple of weeks but I’ve taken the opportunity to maybe freshen up a thumbnail or edit info on an old upload. Even refreshing one old upload can spark new interest I’ve found.

So someone offered to make a logo.
It is worse than i already had xD

Should i just try something myself?
Or.....
Try Fiver, I had a guy on there take my idea and create 4 logos for $25. I am working on the new intro with it and will be revealing it soon. I can look up the guy that did it if you want, got it in like 2 days with all of the rights for Copyright and original image files so you can blow it up or shrink as much as you want.

Goals: Less editing, less takes, and learn more about the editing software. Hit 70 subs after 11 vids, releasing one a week. Not sure if that pace is really realistic, think a lot has to do with the facebook group. I want to have enough footage to sustain the winter with some b-roll and reviews of gear I have been using for the past 4 years. Not sure what I am going to do but I think that is probably my most important goal, figure out how to keep the once a week video once it starts snowing.

I have looked into Fiver, but i also heard some bad stories.
People who for forced to pay for some really really bad stuff.

So i'm kinda careful with spending money ;)
