Men who shaved off a full head of hair are confident, dominant and masculine. Otherwise known as the Bruce Willis effect. Did shaving my head bald contribute to the growth of my YouTube channel?
- For the three years before shaving my head bald, my channel got an average 100+ subscribers per year.
- For the three years after shaving my head bald, my channel got an average 200+ subscribers per year.
Shaving my head bald improved the performance of my channel, right? Not so fast.
I must point out that the subscriber growth for the last three years may have been a coincident. People watched more YouTube videos than before because they had nothing else to do during the shutdown. Since the world had returned to normal, people are watching fewer YouTube videos.
Many YouTubers—myself included—have noticed a tapering off in performance since the beginning of this year.
