    There have been many occasions online, in this forum, and more where people ask for others to sub to their channel. Now that's not a bad thing, I understand it as I ask of it myself during my videos. But usually I ask myself, what sells me to sub to another channel?

    There are many occasions when a channel has asked for my sub, and when I view their channel, it's just small game play clips of a game with no commentary and a channel which isn't organized. I ask myself... What's selling me to sub? If I don't enjoy the genre or content, what will my sub have to offer?

    This is what I want to ask all of you. When it comes to subbing to a channel which will down the line help that creator, what sells you to sub to it?

    What do you look for in a channel that will sell you to sub to that channel, and also sell you to watch the content?

    This is something that can help others identify what they could do to sell people into subbing to their channel. Personally I'm just curious.

    Here's what sells me:

    - Must have a personality in which I want to experience more of.
    - Content to be organized and simple to identify
    - Shows dedication in making their channel presentable.

    I don't sub to any channel anymore, ESPECIALLY massive channels with hundreds of thousands of subscribers.Why? Because nobody ever subs back!! If I had like a million subscribers, I'd sub back to the little guy, it might help them a bit.....

    I think sticking to your niche is very important! If you wanna experiment with your content you can start a new channel or you could do it every once in a while! I personally hampered my sub growth drastically by not sticking to the content i started with! I'm not saying that might be the case with everyone but it was with me

    Well, the commentary and how actively they are doing it and how funny they are in the videos and how much sarcasm there

    Just an FYI. There are limits of how many channels you can sub to.

    That's understandable, which means subs are that much more important to the channels that you really want to watch. What sells you to sub to those?

    I subscribe to a channel because I enjoy the content.
