Thanks for reading.
Just kidding … so backstory, I’m in no way paid by Sprizzy or really give two shits about them. I paid them 110 USD to drive a bit of traffic to one of my videos to see what the effects would be on my newly budding travel channel TravelClast (please go subscribe;) – this is my personal, honest interaction with Sprizzy. Spoilers ahead.
WHAT IS SPRIZZY?
I found Sprizzy through this thing called Google and did a bit of poking around on Reddit and other trustworthy news sources to see if it was worth my hard earned cash. Honestly it was 50/50 on it’s legitimacy, but decided to give it a try.
The interface is simple as pie, as it should be if you’re paying a company to watch your video. You can select a few different targets, like if you want more subscribers, more views, or more likes. Not sure how they target this, but it made me feel good, like drinking a green juice after a long night of boozing.
I selected one video from my list, one that had a bit more natural appeal then the others, to see if Sprizzy could take it to the next level. Their whole deal is that they analytically test your video first to see where best to promote (advertize) it, which helps generate real views/likes/subs.
The first day was promising, and not. I got hundreds more views and 7 lovely comments that were kinda in English. I didn’t have a lot of faith that this was legit, but by the second and third day the comments trailed off but the views kept increasing, as did a few new subs. Checking the retention time of the video it looked like these were actually people, since they would watch nearly the whole video and click away before the end.
SHOULD YOU USE IT?
In the end I got 5k new views, and 20 more likes and subs. If that is worth 100 bucks to you then that is what it is. On a personal note, I’m passionate about making fun media, and really do it just for the pleasure of making it. Would I love to have millions of views and subsist solely off of traveling and filming me eating things? Sure. Really though I’m always looking for ways to get my content in front of people who would enjoy it, which is something Sprizzy seemed to actually do, through some sort of “analysis”. In the end, yes, it works, and was relatively painless.
Had me going there for a while. I thought you were going to say that it was bad.
Gotcha! Na it was a pretty as advertised experience.
Hey there! We are also trying to get a channel going. It’s strange how some of our videos get thousands of views, and others get 40. Can you share any best practices to help out some newbies? Our channel is https://www.youtube.com/c/NormalPeopleAdventures
To be honest I really think its hit or miss, first you have to make content that people are searching for … so use the youtube search bar and see what comes up first, and make similar videos, next you have to network, build the community by commenting, third, try to get your videos featured on popular blogs … in the end, make videos for the pure pleasure of making them … if people want to see them, that is secondary.
