I see a lot of artists, animators, commentators, and other content creators struggling to get up on their feet, so here's a few of my personal tips.
Basic 5 Tips for organic Growth:
1. Post on a regular schedule. For example, post one video every week or so, on the same day. That way followers can anticipate new content from you
2. Comment and interact with other people's content in a genuine way. Don't ask for them to follow or watch your videos, this is not only disrespectful, but also generally annoying. Just check out their content and let them know what you like about it.
3. Be active with posts on your channel, replying to comments, making blog posts, and also being active on social media.
4. Focus on the quality of your content. It doesn't matter if you do everything else correctly. If your content isn't worth watching, people won't stay around for long.
5. Don't focus on the numbers, focus on improving your interaction, content quality, schedule, etc. If you do better in those areas, the numbers will reflect it on their own.

Witajcie w nowej stronie internetowej (a'la YouTube) Vlare stworzony przez Jana, poprzedniego twórcę VidBit oraz VidLii. Vlare jest nowoczesną platformą, która pozwala "zapalić swoją kreatywność", mając niektóre funkcje brakujące w YouTube, takie jak Grupy, blogi, możliwość zobaczenia wszystkich kanałów na jednej stronie, oraz funkcje przyśpieszające działanie strony na starych maszynach.
Nie jestem twórcą ani tłumaczem Vlare, jedynie co tu robię to siedzę i coś robię.
I've been making videos for a while since I was just a freshman in high school. I used to publish on youtube, but the changes they continue to make have made me miss the community aspect of the space. I came across this via a friend of mine. I make art-related content like drawing time lapses. I'm really excited to get to know you guys!
I have a series I'm creating other artists can participate in if you'd like!
Essentially, an artist can submit pieces to be critiqued. After I have collected enough to create a video, I will make a video with the help of other experienced artists, pointing out what the piece did well with, what could improve, etc. I wanted to contribute back into the art community in some way, so hopefully, this will be helpful for some of you!
I'm planning on creating a discord in the future for the art community within my channel, so if you're interested to check out my channel for updates/links.
Hello everybody and welcome to my blog post about Vlare, and how To use it to its full potential! As many people already know, recent laws regarding videos on YouTube have been what has driven many people to start using Vlare instead in the first place. When people talk about this site they say that it is the perfect alternative to YouTube, but I see this place as a social media alternative for so many other sites. And it has struck me so hard to see that most people just do not get that they are under-utilizing this wonderful skill promoting tool! I honestly have not seen one account so far that is not doing so, and I would like to expose just how much potential a site like this has to promote art work, animation, voice work, or any kind of art including blogs, and writing even better than any other type of social media that I have seen to date. Everybody focuses on the videos, and nobody focuses on the fact that you can blog on here and create teams and even use this as an alternative for discord and facebook if you would like! The only feature that I do not think this place has is a video chat feature which could be added in the future if the Owners of Vlare would like to change that one day. If so, I do believe that it would make this content sharing platform the one stop shop for any social media need! (Once it is more popular of course)
Now, I know what some people are going to be saying right now. "But Vlare isn't even really popular right now! On YouTube or Facebook you can find thousands and hundreds of thousands of likes and shares and even the most popular posts And videos on here are only in the hundreds of likes and views! How can this social media platform that hardly anyone knows about possibly be more helpful to me?" Well, it can be because it is a new platform for 1. Think of it. Almost all of the Youtubers who got into YouTube in the early days are now famous with tons of views, likes, and shares. Many get paid good money by youtube, and also Vlare would most likely have a similar system once it grows much bigger. And to that answer you may counter that most of the people on this site are children or people who have no money, and therefore could not have a paying account to help this site along whether or not there are many views and accounts. I would disagree, And this is why. You see, right now while it is mostly unknown, there are more kids over running the place or poor people who can not afford to pay and do not have a professional channel on here more than anyone else. However, if more people grow aware to of the site and its potential, more people will see the potential to grow business and advertise from the site. With the superior selection of tools and media support on here compared to any other site, people will be willing to pay for the best account they can get on here. What does that mean? Well that means that money will be flowing into the system and not only will it get better, but it will be able to pay people with enough views and a big enough following. Even without such a system that pays out to popular people on this site, the ability to promote themselves would be much greater on a site with so Much flexibility to be able to use all kinds of media that this platform offers On only one side instead of having to use several, and use links jumping from 1 app or website to another. I believe that this can be not just a place to share artwork, but To grow a business common and if more professional minded people were made aware of this platform then that could be a game changer! If not promoting solely on this platform, there is still the loophole of posting content on here and leaving a link to your video that is uploaded on Vlare in a short post on facebook, or a video on YouTube. That way you promote on well known sites where you might have already made a following, but you will not get busted with the COPPA stuff...
So how about I get to the point? What is the best way to better utilize your Vlare account? Well, for starters, we should be using every single option available to us. Sounds simple right? But nobody is doing it! They either just upload videos and maybe respond to some comments and make tiny little posts about things once in a great while, or they just chat around and watch others content. Now I understand that not everybody is a content creator and viewers themselves do a great service to everybody else, but if you are a content creator and you want to make your channel really special try diving into all of the mediums that you normally ignore! Now I don't mean doing this willy-nilly, and just typing things here and there when you normally upload videos just to say, "Hey I'm using it!" I mean really trying to map out a plan about exactly what you want to promote. Maybe you were a voice Actor and you only do voice work and maybe edit some videos where your voices voiced over an anime character were something, but that does not mean that you cannot also write posts about your experience and maybe give some tutorials to those who are not as experienced as you! Now why would it be easier for your audience to read and stead of watch your videos? Well… as every Video content creator knows comment not everybody reads the comments! If you are sending out a blog for them to read, you can put your links there to help them along to find your other content and stead of hoping that they will be reading the descriptions under your videos. You may have just told them to look at the links under your videos but maybe something distracted them after the video and they got up and walked away to do something else, And boom! It is forgotten. If they were reading, they would be more focused, and most people read when they have more free time than that required to watch a video. Most people will often admit that it is kind of a bore to try to look at and read a comment section on a video too, even if they are a follower of your content because they just want to get on to the next video and they can easily search your channel. Such people think that they do not need to follow a link because they could just find anything that they want on your channel already, and some channels have haphazard links in them that are not well organized. Because of this, your viewers may expect the same thing in your comment section and rather than having to dig and find the right link, they just search your channel instead and miss out on what you are trying to direct them to. Now, here is one that I am guilty of… some people may not want to search for the link in your comment section, because you are linking to a site that they don't use. If I don't use twitter or Instagram, I won't go looking for a link to someone's Instagram. However, I have clicked on links I did not have to look for in blogs! They were right there right at the moment I was engaged with the content, and my curiosity was piqued! This probably will work for others, and if you have a loyal following, they will most likely also share and like your stuff while they are there! I certainly have when in that situation. What say you are not a voice actor alone but also do art or animation and you want to create a big project that needs a community of people to do the same. Thanks to groups you can make a team! You can post a casting call, write rules, scripts, and more! All made so much easier with the writing tools this place provides! You can get people to join your group to collaborate on professional works of art, and even make a company through networking from this platform! Instead of only uploading videos and decorating your page, you could be organizing a group to collaborate, writing out scripts, or as a solo worker, you could still be getting more traffic through blogging alone! Which leads me to my last point.
Most people in the crowd that has money to invest into making thier own professional Vlare account to build a community and a business, would be the type who enjoy writing and reading. Most of those people are actually going to be older, or perhaps just more old-fashioned, and enjoy a good read. More attention would be drawn to your page, and Vlare in general if there were good articles to read. I am so shocked to see a huge lack of writing content on here! I thought that I might be able to find some interesting articles on here with interesting facts, maybe a little controversy, or simply educational, but I found only a bit of venting, and small posts. These are the traffic bringers guys! Post some educational stuff, maybe in a new niche that there was no room for on big platforms? It might have room to explode when it actually shows up on a new site with little competition for attention! You may even start a trend, or become famous for it! When you see a lack of something good... fill it!
Anyways... I hope you have found this article informative and helpful! I hope to give an active example on my channel once I build it up. And don't forget to utilize your channel to it's fullest potential! :)
My next blog post about Vlare:
I am the WCT (or Wildcat if you want me to be specific), and I am a Moderator for Vlare -
So with the recent growth in new members, I plan on making a small series of Videos that will teach all of you on how to use this Website.
I'll try to keep it detailed, but simple at the same time so you'll become more used to how Vlare itself functions.
Until then, I look forward to your feedback.

Hey everyone! I'm a self taught animator and i've been struggling with getting the hang of it. I was wondering if any of you other animators had any advice or references, like books, videos, or online classes, that you'd recommend.
Thanks so much ~ <3
