New Youtube Channel: From 0 to 1000 Subscribers

Discussion in 'General Marketing' started by thirdeyeblind82, Sep 6, 2018.

    I've been reading many threads about growing an email list, a blog or a chat community, and usually, these discussions turned off after a while.
    I think anyway it's good to keep yourself accountable, putting your project in front of a big audience, and I have all the best intentions to keep going with it! :)

    I'm a digital marketer, I help my clients with their marketing strategy and I have experience with email lists and podcast. What I've never worked with is YouTube.

    That's why I decided to start a new discussion that will follow my journey with Youtube.

    I've just created my new YouTube channel, and at this point, I have just 4 videos on it. Here the newest I posted.


    (Obviously, if you like the video, subscribe to the channel! :D :D)

    Since I started with 0 videos and 0 subscribers, I think it's gonna be useful for both me you to follow the entire path.

    A few fundamental points:
    1. I won't use any scammy technique like commenting "SUB for SUB" on other popular videos or buying followers. I want my subscribers to follow me cause they're genuinely interested in my videos
    2. I won't use any promotion. My aim is to grow my channel organically even if it will take more time and effort
    3. I'll follow a schedule of filming and uploading a video each other week. Unfortunately, I won't be able to do more than this for the moment.

    TARGETS
    • Grow views and subscribers without using ads or scammy techniques
    • Grow an email list through my videos
    • Post 1 video each other week
    • Reach 1000 subscribers on YouTube

    TIME FRAME
    I guess I'm too optimistic, but I'd like to reach 1000 followers on YouTube by September 2019.
    This means getting around 80 subscribers per month, and I'm well aware you need to have viral videos to do that.

    Anyway, I keep reading that the more videos you have, the easier is to grow subscribers. Mine is a hope that it will get easier through the time. :)

    YOUTUBE SUBSCRIBERS PLAN
    The YouTube channel is brand new. I won't tell any friend or family about my channel. I want my subscribers to be authentic people who want to watch my videos and listen to what I have to say.

    On each video, I'll suggest my viewers to subscribe if they like my stuff.
    Plus I have a list of Facebook groups where I'm an active user, that I can use to give more exposure to my channel.

    EMAIL LIST PLAN
    Almost every video I upload has a content upgrade that can be download if the viewer wants to get deeper into the topic. I'm not sure if this technique is a good one for YouTube (since a video gets less promotion by the platform if it makes viewers leave the website), but I'm sure just a little part of my viewers will take action.

    TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS THREAD
    Since I'm taking my first steps with YouTube, I'm not sure the plan I'm following is the right one. For this reason, I'll show all the background things I'm doing that have to do almost nothing with YouTube.

    That will make this discussion more than just about YouTube, but mostly about how to grow a following using any other platform.

    As I wrote above, this is a totally new adventure for me, so if you find it interesting, and if you have any questions please feel free to ask. Equally, if you have some recommendations/advice, please do share!
