Is this something we could all branch out into? Maybe good to generate some video content (Reviews or even quick look style videos?)

We could get someone to build a generic FGUK intro and exit to all have the same flair with the difference being our names and game titles etc which is reasonably simple to edit in.

We could tack this onto reviews but also widens the site appeal and allows us to advertise down other avenues.

TBH that is not really what I had planned for the YouTube channel. I was planning on concentrating on the product side, rather than actual game reviews or footage.

I really want to focus on products over actual games, like hardware and accessories and also buying guides that help people save money. I think there are just far to many channels that cover games reviews to actually make an impact.

I also think that all our review to team are strong enough writers to not need that video tacked on to the end of reviews as I think this takes the readers focus away from the writing itself..I know that's what happens to me on sites that have a video, i tend just to look at the video.

I'm not ruling the idea out totally in future, but for now I will be sticking to the original plan for the channel.

Appreciate the input tho buddy

I would also say it also helps search results if you watch the video all the way to the end, Youtube's Algorithm takes Viewer retention into account for search results and potential monetization ...

At least that's what my MCN tells me

TBH I know fuck all about how Youtube works and I'm just learning as I go.

I've always moaned about how many sub requests I get each day on Twitter from Youtubers, now I'm just as bad as them....I'd do terrible things to clock up those subs!

lol, yeah to be honest I don't think anyone really knows how YouTube works, they change there algorithms every few months.. the only constant advice is post regularly and grow a community.

Hight Retention and view time helps in both search results, and advertising revenue :)

For me headphones harddrives and controllers would be the top 3 in items of interest.


Audio levels on the videos sound clear and loud enough for me!

I am in talks with some hardware companies, so should soon have stuff to review. I'm also buying stuff off Amazon if I see a bargain.

I had been thinking about doing this on my Youtube channel as a regular series. I am more than happy to help out if you need it. Haven't been on the youtubes long but I have access to a lot of people who have :D
