Hello Permie-Lovlies,
I'm starting a Youtube channel where I show the build up of my new farm while and how to build up a farm at various scales (patio garden to small scale farming). The goal is to provide empirical information and practical examples of different options that will allow people to grow more of their own food. I'm funding the project myself so far, as it is to be my actual homestead/microfarm. There is a Patreon and PayPal Donation set-up for anyone who ends up really enjoying the page after a while. But this is something I don't want to push, just have it there for anyone moved to contribute. I'll be applying for grants and seeing if there are affiliate marketing options or something passive. I'm not trying to 'sell' something, is my point. The goal is to make information like this understandable and free to everyone. Many channels cater to only a certain style, scale, or type of farming. I will be looking to display an optimized blend of methodologies and explanations as to which is appropriate in different situations and desired outcomes.

I would greatly appreciate some feedback, as you all are basically my target audience. Below are topics and formats I am mulling over. Would you be so kind as to give me your take on them and perhaps write about what you would like or expect from a channel like this? Additionally, I'd be truly and dearly grateful to anyone keen on subscribing from this community, my tribe. Likes, subscribes, and later average viewing data helps put this in front of more people. And it's also motivational and a moral boost to have people rooting for you from the start.

Channel: Gledegaard RED YouTube Channel
Website: Gledegaard

Title format options for the 'How to' content:
1) Farm-How: * enter task to be explained*
2) How to: * enter task to be explained*
3) ---suggestions---

Title format for subject videos (each subject is intended to have a presentation video to introduce a new subject before the 'How to' playlist is filled out):
1) Introduction: Water Management
2) At a Glance: Water Management
3) What is Water Management
4) First thing First: Water Management
5) Overview: Water Management
6)---suggestions---

Topics (sample of topics)
Identifying your:
1) growing capacity (growing space)
2) food and water needs
3) minimum & recommended tools for your context
4) livestock options
5) considerations for animal welfare in your systems
6) elements to build into your system/infrastructure (health, safety, scalability)
7) mapping your competence and proficiency and passions
8,) reducing input costs, resilient & sustainable budgeting
9) hardy zone and climate considerations
10) plant crops' biological needs
11) locations condition - survey and mitigation/corrective actions
12)---suggestions---


Again, thank you for any help and advice you can give
Big Love and Big Hugs

I'm honored to be your first subscriber.

Since my office job shifted to working from home I've been watching A LOT of permie YouTube videos. I suppose I'm a bit of an expert now.

It sounds like your presentation style will be more formal, scientific and organized than most YouTubers. While that approach might be the most valuable for a viewer looking for the exact info that you're sharing, I think it will result in slow growth to your subscriber base.

It seems to me that building a following is easier if you can include more personal content. If you have a partner or a family or especially pets and livestock then including them in your videos will be a hit. Titles that hint at personal challenges or successes might get more views than titles named methodically. You can always add organization afterwards by grouping in play lists.

Whether you use any of my advice or not I'm looking forward to seeing what your little slice of Norway looks like.

NICK!!!
You subscribed🥺💖! I'm honored. And your advice was just what I was wishing for but hadn't typed about specifically. I am on the autism spectrum and honestly don't know how personal or private people like things. I'm either too much or too little. And thusly stick to the data.
I'll have to find a way to make the information more digestible and interesting (Bill Nye the Science Guy kind of thing...but targeted for adults).
But for reals tho, Nick.
Thank you🥰
