I work hard on my skins, but none of them ever get famous like others do. I heard advertising gets you banned, but my friend Blaze says that's the way to go. I may have few subscribers, but at least they cared enough to subscribe!
I also may be level 23, but that's only because I've done a lot of stuff. I really don't get what the heck I'm doing wrong. Is it my skin style? Is that what's bad? Can anyone tell me why I'm not getting as many views as my friend Blaze?

I read the comments and just wanted to suggest getting an app on itunes for your skins. Im not sure what you use but on the app its very easy and you can upload it too. Im not sure what the name of the app is and i dont really feel like looking haha.

You don't get banned for advertising, but it's only allowed once every 15 minutes

I know how you fell like.I have made 3 skins that took me a hour (or hours maybe) and they got just a few views and/or downloads,while skins already seen a million times still gets a lot of views,downloads,diamonds,and favorites. Anyway i like your works, +1 sub for you.

My tips for you:

1. You've only posted 5 skin in the past 7 months. If you want to build your subscriber base and get your name out there, you should *at least* be aiming for 2 skins a month. Back when I was a beginner skinner, I made around nearly a skin a day. This sounds like hard work, and it is, but it takes hard work if you want to become a popular and skilled skinner.

2. You barely ever use the forums. Being active and friendly in the forums is another great way to earn friends and subscribers. Additionally, for your signature you should make a banner showing off your best skins and advertising the fact that you're a skinner. Again, this is something I did when I was starting out, and it did wonders for my exposure.

PS. You're allowed to advertise in chat, just only once per 15 minutes. Generally you're not allowed to make threads/posts purely to advertise in the forums, but you're allowed to post your skins if you're asking for feedback or advice.

I have posted less often due to personal issues and the face that I left for a while. I used to do a skin a day as well, and I try to do more frequent skins, but hardly anyone views them and such.

I'll try to be active in the forums, but I don't really know how right now. Not really a forum guy.

Maybe start a youtube to get a few extra fans, also maybe do some projects. Projects are almost always more popular than skins, and they seam to be posted less often meaning more people will see them. Also even update the summary every so often so they appear at the top of the list. Maybe slowly change percents as you progress so they get more attention. Just some thoughts, sence you asked for them.

P.S.: I don't think it is anything you are doing wrong it is more of a combined effort for popularity. And if you can get your things on the front page then it will get even more views. I'll see what else I can do to help you with this. Thanks for listening, by the way.

Thanks so much for replying! This really helps, but how do I use a youtube to get fans?
Also, everything else is very helpful!

P.S.: Nice username :3
