HI, this is Sudipto who has more than 3-year experience in Digital marketing. During my carrier, I learn a lot of things in my domain. So, I want to share this knowledge with the digital world through a YouTube channel and my blog.
With this, I have also a hobby. I love to create new and useful things from wastage material of my home. I am also eager to wait to share my hobbies with others who love to create new things.
So, my question is the following...
  • How many channels I should open to sharing my Digital marketing knowledge and hobby to others??
  • Can I do both things in one channel?
Which is better for me? Every day, I am able to manage 1-2 hr for my YouTube channel... It is really hard for me to posting video both of this channels, but it is not impossible for me.
So, pleases suggest me with your best option...
Thanks

      Thanks for sharing your point of view.
      Yes.. You are right.

      But it takes double time to build up and maintained it properly.
      According to YouTube algorithm "video rank and suggested video depend on a regular interval of video publishing".

      Right now, I have limited time to spend on YouTube. So, which niche channel I should focus more??

  • I think it would be best to start with one channel but eventually add more channels once you can consistently diversify your content. It'll make loyal fans happy because they can choose specific channel they want to follow and you can expand your audience with our new channels.

    The key here though is that the channels should be different. Don't compete with your own channel. And you should have new content regularly. If you can't do that, it might be best to just create different playlists.

    If you connect through a single YouTube channel, then you will require less effort and less time to work on your channel. In contrast, having multiple channels is not a viable option. Interacting with people via various channels can be difficult. It will cause extra effort, also you need to shift gears accordingly. Altogether, a single YouTube channel allows you to gather a fan following (subscribers) at a single place. And you can focus more on engaging more and more audiences, only if you have a single channel.

    It depends on how related the two topics are.

    The biggest issue with multiple channels is Youtube monetization, which requires you to have pretty good viewer numbers before you qualify for monetization, which becomes harder with two separate channels splitting viewer watch time.

    The biggest issue with one channel are things like "view velocity" which is the percentage of your subscribers that view your new videos within 24 hours of them being uploaded. If your videos are split between two different topics, not only will it be harder to get subscribers, you'll also have a lower view velocity for videos about each topic.

    I suggest you focus on one topic/one channel to get started, then consider creating a second channel.

    Hi Sudipto,

    I say one: where your attention and energy goes, grows. Meaning you give it to 1 channel and it will grow quickly. Dividing among many channels ensures each grows slowly.

    1 channel 1 message because You do not want to confuse your audience. 1 channel for digital marketing and seperate 1one for your hobbies. How often are you planning on posting youtube videos ? You need to take that into consideration too.So if you do decide to open 2 channels just make sure that your posting frequency is consistent and aligned with your goals .

    As Himanshu Khaira mentioned the best is to stick to be and after that maybe do 2 channels.

    I guess at first focusing on one channel, and one content will be best. Choose a niche and become the absolute best resource you can on that niche. Add content which will be valuable for the viewers and show your passion for your work.

    Once you get the engaging followers in one channel, you can start your other channel and divert those followers in another one by promoting it in your first channel.

    Being a viewer, I have seen youtubers creating many channels at the same time, but because of that, the quality of one channel lacks. Focusing on two things together is not an easy task so after getting your hand on one channel start another one.
