Starting a YouTube Channel is Hard But it becomes easy when you understand the game.
These 9 simple strategies will guarantee the success of your YouTube channel:
1. Find An Unsaturated Niche: You won’t initially get views if you talk about broader topics such as productivity, habits, lifestyle, etc. Teach something or solve a specific problem. Try to learn a skill solely through YouTube, and you will find the gaps. Make videos to close that gap.
2. Create A Simple Process of Video Creation: You don’t need to buy the latest camera or mic to start a YouTube channel. Your smartphone camera is more than sufficient. If you don’t want to show your face, screen capture works fine too. You will create more videos if you don’t dread it.
3. Create a Volume of Content: If your channel only has 1-2 videos, it gives a sense that you’re not posting regularly. Create at least 10 videos as soon as possible (start with intensity). Later, you can reduce it to once a week or so (go ahead with consistency).
4. Post on Schedule: Initially, test different timing for posting your videos. You will find that a certain time of the day will give you a better engagement. Fix that time and post strictly at that time. People notice the discipline and will start waiting for your video.
5. Create Playlists: Explain a topic in 5-10 videos and create a playlist out of it. It gives people a reason to come back and watch more of your content. If people spend more time with your content, the YouTube algorithm shows it to more people.
6. Create Attractive Thumbnails: Thumbnails are the first impression of your video. Create a curiosity gap through your thumbnail—use the right words, a clear image, and some creative icons. Don’t make a bad clickbait. If you fool people, they won’t come back.
7. Create Timeless Content: Trending topics may give you immediate views but nobody will look for them in a few days. You need to create videos that stay relevant at least for the next 2 years or so. Cover trending topics but don’t entirely rely on them.
8. Engage in Comments: Initially, very few people comment on your videos but it allows connecting with them. Talk to them, find out what problems they are facing and cover those pain points in your videos.
9. Use Youtube Analytics: Youtube analytics helps you a lot in understanding your audience. Check when your audience is most active, which video is bringing more subscribers, which geographic location is giving you more views, etc. Double down on what works.
These steps can help you go from zero to one But your strategy will change as you grow the channel YouTube doesn’t require you to post videos every week If you can attract an audience by posting twice a month, the YouTube algorithm will help you grow.
