The best way to grow your channel is by producing consistent, original, and humorous content. If you sit down and think ‘I like this video’, then most likely, other people will too. It kills me when people upload things and say, ‘oh, this isn’t my best effort.’ If you feel that it's not your best, then don't upload it.
