When I first started my channel, I knew it would be a slow journey and that it would require a lot of hard work but I was ready and willing to do all that. However, before reading 'A Gamer's Guide to Greatness', I didn't know that I was actually making things harder for myself from the start! This book has helped me correct my course and focus in the right areas.
Firstly, Jay made me realise that my videos were not going to bring in new viewers and subs consistently. This is because i was focusing on gameplay videos or what Jay refers to as Hub content, content for your already established subs, when I needed to be doing guide or tip videos that would bring new people to my channel. Secondly, my original plan was to get at least 500 subs before I started looking at using affilate links or creating merchandise for my channel and brands but this book basically said what's stopping you from starting now and I realised that nothing is stopping me.
So I have started implementing links and looking at simple t-shirts to start promoting because you can start earning money and have a better income source before you get monetised at 4000 hours and 1000 subs. And lastly, Jay has made me realise that although I started doing my YouTube channel as a hobby I need to think of it as a business if I want to break the chains of the 9-5 job and do something I am passionate about.
I would recommend Jays 'A Gamers Guide to Greatness' book to EVERYONE who is thinking about making a YouTube channel that they can make a living from and not just gamers. His thoughts and advise do not just apply to gaming channels and will help anyone progress in their YouTube career.
There were various things I was looking for more guidance on, such as what to do a gaming channel on, niching down, making money off of a channel, and more.
It's a very simple, straight to the facts book, and each chapter always has examples that help you out with learning how to execute those ideas. Many chapters give you one or more options, and Jay's opinions and personal recommendation. In addition there were some pretty cool things I learned that I wasn't aware of that will help me out with improving my channel.
I'd definitely recommend "The Gamer's Guide to Greatness". It's a short, simple, straight to the point book with great examples, concepts, and ideas that can really help out someone looking for ways to not just improve on their channel, but how those improvements can help out over the long run.
I had a strong foundation of knowledge from watching YouTuber's like VideoCreators, Roberto Blake, and Derral Eves. The problem was, I just didn't have information that was specifically directed towards gaming content creation on YouTube... only what I'd picked up from BC over at Client's Incoming (which was quite a bit lol).
Jay Cartere's channel content, but specifically this book bolstered the information I already had, and then fine tuned it towards gaming content. This book was simple (in a good way), and very informative. It gives a wide array of information and suggestions that will definitely be useful to anybody looking to put up gaming content on YouTube (or even other genres to be honest)!
If I hadn't already spent countless hours ingesting other sources of information, this book would have literally been mind blowing for me with how much it would help. The majority of the content is geared towards educating people at the very start of their YouTube journeys (which I am-- I'm just already balls deep into the research aspect), but I found more than my fair share of useful information that more than justifies the price I paid for it. Overall, very happy with my purchase and look forward to seeing what Jay puts out next!
I'm a YouTube gamer just like you! Even I struggled when I first started out on YouTube - it took me ages to grow.
I spent years experimenting, researching and testing until I found out how to grow my YouTube channel consistently and turn it into a business.
Now I wake up excited because I am able to do what I love every day, and I want you to be able to do the same!
