    Choose what games to play. If on YouTube, apparently around 50% of videos are Minecraft videos which can get thousands and some millions of views, but there are so many that its hard to get views on any one specific channel. Other popular videos like Call of Duty, Battlefield 3 and FIFA.

    Have the voice. Having a nervous and quiet voice will kick people out of videos in seconds, so be sure to sound confident, speak properly, and be fun.

Tips

  • Try to collab with other who have mostly the same amount of subscribers.
  • Try to record in HD. People tend to stick around on good quality videos. If the quality looks like it was recorded on a potato then people are most likely to leave.
  • Playing online or with friends/others is better than single player!
  • Make jokes and be funny to entertain your audience.
  • Try to put some information in your videos.
  • Don't try to copy other people's catchphrases or lines, make up your own! This will make you different from the others which is exactly what you want to do!
  • Make good quality videos!
  • Show your channel to people you know and ask them to spread the word and you can get people to recognize your channel more.
  • Don't do it for the viewers, or you'll find yourself to be somebody completely different. Most likely somebody that you don't like.
  • Be yourself and have fun!
  • Edit the video. This is a really important tip--a video that isn't edited doesn't get you subscribers!
  • Tell your family to be quiet when you are recording so you have no distractions and there is no background talk to detract from your video.
  • Have variety and play all kinds of games, not just Minecraft or CoD. Don't just copy what your favorite Let's Players do.
  • Watch other videos to get hints on how to be good. Don't copy what they do exactly though!
  • Don't be afraid to be a little over the top- It's important to be yourself and enjoy what you're doing, but at the same time, you do need to provide entertainment if you want viewers.
  • Choose between a kid-friendly channel or a channel which is not kid friendly.
  • Instead of begging viewers to subscribe (for example, "Please, please subscribe! It really helps my channel. Again, please subscribe!"), remind them (for example, "Subscribe for automatic updates.").

Warnings

  • Don't disrespect your audience. You'll find yourself to be hated a lot.
  • Don't have an ego. You're just some dude that's making videos of yourself playing games, just like the other 50 million users on YouTube.
  • Be respectful with your jokes, or you're going to deal with an offended audience.
  • Try not to act like your favorite Let's-Player.
  • Learn how to play the game you're playing, or you'll look like an idiot.
