    My biggest question is how do we keep people coming back to the site? Right now, I post a TILvids video of the day to Twitter, Mastodon, and Reddit (and @the_tech_beast@lemmy.ml graciously reposts on Lemmy as well) but I’d love to know how to keep people coming back to TILvids daily, like they would YouTube, Netflix, etc.

      It is what every channel is looking for, more views, more returns, more engagement, growth. It is understandable of course, but I would not consider failure if you feel you are not going fast enough. Is it because you make this a full-time job? There are youtube videos that pick up after 2 years, the other day I saw a website that got international attention after even 11 years. I think your content is good and as soon you focus on quality and be happy in making them, it will turn out well. Maybe get a couple of translators to voice over your videos in Spanish / Chinese / French to create these language versions. Perhaps look into reaching other channel creators that have bigger audience and the content is related, asking for a shout-out. If you already are doing what they are doing and at the same quality level but you just don’t hit the numbers, don’t think there is something wrong. Also in this period people are leaving lockdown so there is a downward trend in digital engagement everywhere. I am not a channel expert but I do see this anxiety of engagement in many heads, and it is an affliction.

        Well, I’m actually the admin of the entire tilvids.com website, so I’m trying to advocate for dozens of creators! So it’s actually even trickier than just trying to make good content, I have to find LOTS of good content and creators that fit the edutainment focus of tilvids.com! :)

        Make sure to check out some of the other videos on the website! https://tilvids.com/videos/recently-added

          I see! Maybe this is a useful idea, there are some channels that at the end of the videos they ask “what theme do you want me to do a video next? option 1 or option 2?” and the viewers answer in the comments. I think this simple interaction might help bring more ppl back for the next video.

            Interesting, I will pass that feedback along to our creators! Make sure to follow along on Mastodon as well, especially if you have additional feedback! https://mstdn.social/@tilvids
