5 Things That Can Kill Your YouTube Channel



youtube sad

Hundreds of thousands of hours of content are uploaded to YouTube every year. As the number of creators grows, so does the number of success stories. However, as YouTube has grown, its guidelines and policies have also grown stricter. So has the complexity of its video ranking algorithm. The right things can make or break your channel.

These five things can kill your YouTube channel’s chance at success.

1. You’re using copyrighted background music.

When it comes to copyright, YouTube isn’t here to play. With every policy update, the platform cracks down on copyright infringement more. Too many copyright strikes can kill your channel. On top of that, a copyright claim against your video can damage its monetization.

While recent updates gave creators tools to remove copyrighted music from a video to protect its monetization, it’s much better to avoid using copyrighted music entirely. Instead, try to only use background music from YouTube’s own Audio Library. That way, you can be one hundred percent sure it’s safe to use.

2. Your upload schedule is all over the place.

Maybe you uploaded three videos last week but only one this week. You plan to take next week off because you’re just out of ideas. Your viewers never know when to expect a new upload, or they’re used to not seeing anything from you for weeks or months at a time.

When your upload schedule is all over the place, it’s hard to keep your place in the algorithm. Worse, viewers may grow frustrated and find other creators they enjoy who upload regularly. Even if fans rewatch your old videos, they won’t feel the same intense devotion to your channel if there’s never any new content.

Therefore, you should establish a reasonable and realistic upload schedule. If you can only upload once every two weeks, pick a day and tell your viewers to expect new videos then. Most importantly, you should follow through on your promised upload schedule.

3. You focus on quantity over quality.

Maybe your upload schedule is the opposite of disorganized. Perhaps you upload a new video every single day at noon. Your views are likely consistent but low.

Uploading too often overwhelms both you and your viewers. As you hustle to upload something everyday, the quality of your work can take a hit. Your viewers may grow tired of repetitive content or uninspired video ideas.

As a creator, you need to value quality over quantity. One great video a week is better than a mediocre video every day. If you feel the need to upload more often to compensate for your falling view count, try changing something fundamental about your videos instead. Think outside the box and try to create a better video instead of simply uploading more videos.

4. You don’t abide by the advertiser-friendly guidelines.

Because YouTube is funded through advertisements, the platform only monetizes and promotes videos that meet its advertiser-friendly guidelines. Basically, an advertiser-friendly video would meet a PG rating if it was a film.

If your videos don’t meet the advertiser-friendly guidelines, then you won’t be able to monetize them. This can consequently make it difficult for you to support yourself through content creation, forcing you to turn to other platforms or outlets to earn a living.

In essence, you should imagine that your videos are running on daytime TV. Curse words should be bleeped, and mature or violent content should be avoided.

5. You aren’t listening to viewer feedback.

The most important factor in your channel’s success is the viewers themselves. Art is meant to be consumed, and the internet enables people to interact with the creators behind the art they love the most. While your fans can build your channel up and make it wildly successful, they can also leave or turn their backs if your content turns into something they don’t like.

Therefore, the best thing you can do as a YouTuber is to listen to viewer feedback. Not only are you making videos you enjoy, but you’re also making them for an audience to consume. Read your video comments, Twitter mentions, etc. to find out what viewers are saying about your content.

On top of listening to viewer feedback, you also need to acknowledge it and grow from it. Whether it’s addressing a lighting issue that annoys them or stopping a series they don’t like, your viewers’ advice can make your channel better because they see it through a different lens.

Breaking YouTube’s guidelines or ignoring viewer feedback are the quickest ways to kill your channel’s chance of success. Focus on quality over quantity and stick to a consistent upload schedule instead.

Dr. Michael K Obeng, R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Worldwide Inc. to conduct free reconstructive surgeries in Ghana this October



Barely three months after performing free reconstructive surgeries in Yaounde Cameroon, R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Worldwide Inc., led by renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Michael K. Obeng, is headed to Accra, Ghana.

The team of selfless and dedicated health officials is expected to arrive in Accra on Saturday, October 8.

Screening of patients will take place on Sunday, October 9, with surgeries to begin Monday, October 10 through to Friday, October 15.

The mission will be the team’s third medical mission this year after successful programs in Gambia and Cameroon early in the year.

This will be the 15th year that the R.E.S.T.O.R.E. team has embarked on such a humanitarian mission. The team of selfless volunteers has visited and performed reconstructive surgeries in Gabon, Ghana, Guatemala, Laos, Mexico, Nigeria, Senegal, and Vietnam.

As done over the years, the R.E.S.T.O.R.E. team will not only perform surgeries but also train a good number of local healthcare professionals as well as exchange ideas.

To date, R.E.S.T.O.R.E. has performed over 1,600 surgeries free of charge in three different continents, the monetary value exceeding $80 Million USD.

About R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Worldwide Inc.; The Foundation for Reconstructive Surgery

R.E.S.T.O.R.E. is an acronym that stands for Restoring Emotional Stability Through Outstanding Reconstructive Efforts. It is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit medical service organisation that provides free reconstructive surgery and related medical services to children and adults with disfiguring deformities from birth, accidents and diseases involving not only the head and neck region, but also the trunk, breasts, extremities, and genitalia. It was founded in 2007 by Dr. Michael K. Obeng.

As part of its mission, R.E.S.T.O.R.E. also educates and trains local medical professionals on the latest techniques and safety measures in plastic and reconstructive surgery, effecting change long after the R.E.S.T.O.R.E. team leaves these communities.

R.E.S.T.O.R.E. AT 15

Dr. Michael K. Obeng, MD, FACS – It is with great pleasure to announce that RESTORE Worldwide, Inc.; the Foundation for Reconstructive Surgery reaches its 15th anniversary this year!

I, as the founder, look back at these years with nostalgic fondness and am proud of the continuous expansion and growth, all made possible with the assistance of a strong donor base that helped us reach this milestone.

Since its inception in 2007, RESTORE and its dedicated group of noble volunteers completed missions in 11 different countries on three continents. The team has performed over 1500 surgeries all free of charge, with a great humanitarian aim to change people’s lives, and were not afraid to tackle complex reconstruction cases. The monetary value of surgeries performed has exceeded well over USD 80 million.  Moreover, a countless number of patients of all ages have indirectly benefited from the foundation’s work through non-surgical management and the training of local doctors.

Now, as RESTORE races towards its fifteenth anniversary, I am not only keen on replicating the same success, but also envision reaching new horizons with a goal of raising USD 2.5 million in a year to make an even greater impact. It is no secret that we have strong demand and constant requests for RESTORE missions in new regions and countries, all unfulfilled because of the heavy weight of logistical costs associated with providing medical and surgical supplies and transporting the team. While some donors provide value by donating time and volunteering, the non-profit needs donors to provide crucial financial support.

This year in June, we completed a mission to Cameroon and have upcoming trips that include Ghana in October and Senegal in December. If we reach our fundraising goal on this occasion, I envision RESTORE’s expansion to Central and South America, as well as Southeast Asia, and growing to become one of the leading non-profit, charity organizations across the globe.

Any support, great or small, helps RESTORE to get closer to its very special goal to change lives, give hope and make an impact.

As I deliver my deepest gratitude towards your generosity, I hope you will inspire others to make the same move, by supporting our noble cause.
