YouTube Guide – Videos or Livestreams? Which Is Better For My Gaming Channel?

August 31, 2019


Videos or livestreams – which type of content
should you focus on for your YouTube channel? (Hey guys, I’m jay Cartere from growonyoutube.com
teaching you how to grow on YouTube and become a better you. In this video I’m going to
try and help you decide whether you should be focusing your efforts on videos or livestreams
on your YouTube channel.) Both types of content have their pros and
cons, and both videos and livestreams can help you grow your YouTube channel. Ultimately
the choice of which you focus on will depend on the time you have and a few other factors
but let’s go over a few pros and cons of each type of content first. Videos – Pros You can put out more content
You can edit out your mistakes and polish a video more than a livestream
You can earn on your videos autonomously through adsense – passive income
You can gain subscribers and viewers autonomously Your video can gain more views and rank highly
over time You can make your work schedule more flexible
– through bulk creating and editing and video scheduling Cons
Adsense isn’t great You need to edit your videos
The interaction with your viewers isn’t the same as the live interaction Livestreams Pros You can interact with your viewers live
You don’t have to edit You can get donations as well as play ads
You can play a game you love for long stretches of time Cons
You generally have to stream for at least 3 hours if you want to grow
You can’t edit out any mistakes You generally will not earn when you’re
not live You usually won’t gain many subscribers
or views when you’re not live Your schedule needs to be very rigid for you
to grow These pros and cons should give you an idea
of which type of content you’d prefer to focus on but let me share my opinion. I believe
both videos and livestreams should be used in together for healthy growth on YouTube.
The process of being able to communicate with your subscribers in a live forum is very valuable
for building a community, however videos are the best way for me to bring new subscribers
in the first place. The time-cost effectiveness of videos vs livestreams
makes video content the more viable option. I can create 5 new videos in the the 3 – 5
hours it takes to do a livestream that generates growth. I believe that you should focus on
creating videos as it’s easier to rank, you can make passive income that grows over
time and you can put out more content. Livestreams should be used to augment those videos, to
interact live with the fans you’ve already generated through your videos. Of course, if you prefer to do livestreams
you can focus on that, I’m not saying that’s wrong or that it’s impossible to grow on
youtube through consistent livestreaming – you can. It just seems better and more time efficient
to transition to livestreaming after building a solid community and fanbase through your
videos. I hope this video helped you out. Check out the services I offer and my other

  1. I'm 146 subs and highest count I got on a stream was 16 while playing Overwatch…did it for like an hour and got a good number of subs from it (had less then 146 when streaming). I usually stream a game then put it through the editor and come out with a video which can do decent to good. Fun fact though the tipping feature is only available if you have 1,000+ subscribers.

    PS
    I wish everyone luck in their youtube endeavors, whatever kind they may be
