No YouTube Subscribers, No Problem
So, you’ve started a YouTube channel. That is half the battle. Now you are trying to grow an audience. Unless you have a super unique niche, you will not become an overnight sensation. It’s not personal, it’s just the way things are. You have to put in the work to get the followers.
Actually, there is a whole list of technical things that need to be done to help you become a part of the YouTube algorithm, like hashtags, SEO terms, titles, descriptions, etc. Aside from those things, you need to build an online presence.
What I have learned is you have to keep creating content. The more you create the better your videos and editing skills become. You also become more specific with your video topics and that is important.
Try to stay as consistent as possible, I have a hard time with this because my schedule is crazy, but it is becoming a more normal part of my schedule to film, then edit and post. I share with my Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. Granted all of those things are difficult to grow organically, you can obtain a more supportive following if done slowly and with intention.
Leave comments on your favorite YouTubers’ channels with a link to your channel, this will be read by other people like you who like specific things and are watching the same videos as you. Also, if you have a website and a newsletter, include the most current video published.
It is going to be a long road ahead, but if you stick to it, things will come together. Remember that the few followers you have are still important and they will be the ones who stay with you until the end. Keep plugging away and your following will come together.
