Advise regarding DIY chemistry YouTube channel.


Hello everyone
I had made a YouTube channel to post experiments and demos I did in my home lab like 7-8 years back. During that days I was just stupid and doing things which I don't even want to remember now. Then I stopped doing videos for around 5 years and now since 3-4 months I have restarted. I can understand how the creator challenges have raised in comparison with those old days.
I really want help regarding how to run my YouTube channel successfully and how to choose topics and editing stuff and also regarding how to get a community in youtube . I am not into asking people forcefully to Subscribing my channel and sharing them. But people do watch out content by the way we present the videos and the variety in them I guess?. So I would like help from all who can and have practise in YouTube content creation to improve my channel. Thanks in advance . :)

Well, I would not squander time, money and effort into a YT channel. YT is now becoming a crowd-made TV station. They are going to demonetize/delete what is not profitable for them on december 10. If you want views on YT you have to make stuff that the simpletons like (stupid stuff). You will get discouraged because intelligent content gets no views/engagement.

Bitchute is a much better venue, you have to pay but you can see and post stuff without fearing censorship and dumbs**ts-favoring suggestion algorithms. I am going to buy a hard drive and save all the interesting chemistry videos I can find on YT, videos are invaluable research assets.

I have thought about posting videos on YT but I will post on BC instead. I do not care about views, I just want add my own work to the stack so that it helps other chemistry enthusiasts.




Potential counts for nothing until realized.

there are already many threads on this board about making a good youtube video, others like you had the same idea, they made 4 or 5 rushed videos, and then went silent

I have made 64+ videos since 7 years. But I was inactive for a long time and started again after 5 years

Yt views? Do the Doctor Stone Chemistry


I think that if you want some attention on youtube as a chemist right now, your best bet would be to do videos that directly address the Anime series Doctor Stone. It is really blowing up in popularity and it's totally chemistry and science related.

If you check out the comments in some of the big name yt chemists you will see doctor stone mentioned. That's where I heard of it. I'm 49 and wasn't really an anime fan but I binge watched it. It's not perfect but it's kind of inspiring to think that Generation Z is being inspired to get making things.




I am seeking to level up my Chem skills. Corrections welcome! All mentorship in madness appreciated.

you tube is determined to commit suicide and self destruct their publishing site (They seriously need to lose all protected status and be filed as publisher at this point)

Bit chute is best option.

Depends what you want to achieve and how much work you are willing to put in. For a while YouTube was a special place because not only was it 'free' both in terms of cost and in relation to the content you could post (within some broad limits), but also came with the power of Google's integrated search and a huge community, and also integrated monetisation capability (if you chose to enable it).

YT has now firmly changed direction however and that magic trio of 'free', 'huge community', and 'commercialisable' in one place no longer exists.

So you have a choice - YouTube can still work if you are able to sacrifice 'free' and control your content very tightly. In order to appeal to a mass audience however you will have to make your content more clickbait-friendly. You will also have to take the risk that if someone decides they don't like your channel or an identity-politic loon decides you have offended them, that YT will possibly shut you down at any point without any means of recourse.

Bitchute gives you 'free' but you will get a fraction of the viewers and as yet no commercial option. If your intent is just to publish your work for posterity then this can work just fine though.

If you want to have your cake and eat it and have freedom, a big audience, and ability to commercialise, then it's going to be a lot of work; you can probably use Bitchute but be warned that there are some strange characters there and a lot of 'fringe' views on there which might just put some potential viewers off visiting. Since the Google network is not there you will have to very actively promote all your content throughout social media, use Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, and other forums constantly (and also run a similar risk as with YT). Since commercialisation is not available you'll have to use a separate funding platform and convince people to donate to you.

I've subscribed to both of your channels! lol I love watching home chemistry experiments.

My opinion (which is worth what you paid for it) is that there are some very successful amateur chemists on Youtube -- think NileRed -- but that Youtube is getting increasingly difficult to find gems due to its sheer size and the way it keeps messing with search algorithms. That's to say that if NileRed started the exact same channel today with all the same great content, would he be able to garner so many subscribers?

As for Bitchute, its app has an annoying habit of signing me out every frosty morning so I have to keep signing into it, which just due to annoyance can make me less likely to watch the exact same content. However, I think Bitchute is the wave of the future.

IMO the future is Youtube is basically a repeat of brain-dead TV, and bitchute is where you'll find interesting stuff.

If it were me, I'd try to set up a channel in both places and upload to both.
