When Should You Start A Second Channel?
In this first/second post I wanted to go over when you should think about starting a second YouTube channel.
At first I didn't even want a second channel. I was really shooting for making these type of videos unlisted on my DarbinOrvar channel and just promoting them on the blog and social media. It eventually occurred to me that this was not the best idea. It is so much easier to promote and keep track of subscribers with a second channel. This way YouTube helps promote the video, and helps me manage what kind of content I keep separate from the main channel.
This brings us to the main point: When to start a second channel? There are a lot of opinions out there. Basically my point of view comes down to this, if what set you on the path to your first channel is the same for the second channel, you are ready. Some would say some complicated formula about subscriber numbers or the position of Mercury, but really if you have something to say, say it!
It is just about as simple as that. I think a VLOG is a great complement to a building, or DIY channel. It gives you a place to think, without being concerned with showing a project build. Also it gives you a place to clarify your project and share new tools, which is something I also plan to do.
Well with that I hope you enjoy the new channel and video. Thanks for reading and watching. Don't forget to check out my new channel: http://youtube.com/DarbinNotes
