When I say a starting YouTuber, I mean having done it for almost 4 years.
Everyone gives advice on how to make it big...how to hit your desired subscriber mark. So, I wanted to talk about those subscribers and those viewers. No, I don't want to tell you how to get more subscribers, because, quite frankly, I only have around 1,000 subs and I'm not in any position to tell you how to get more for your channel.
But, the number 1,000 isn't lost on me. That's close to the number of people that went to my high school. That's the first thing I want to talk about.
If you have 1 viewer that watches every video you put up, that is 1 person that is taking time out of their day to watch you. Can you imagine a fan in front of you who's always listening whenever you open your mouth (but not in a creepy way)? Now, take my example, I have 1,000 subscribers. If you took your high school auditorium, and filled it up (and then filled it up twice again), that's how many people that is. Just imagine the magnitude of that. That many people willing to listen to whatever dumb shit spews out of my mouth. That is insanity! :)
And the second thing I want to talk about always pisses me off!
This topic is the whole want of getting new subscribers when you already have some subscribers. There are way too many small YouTubers, who don't give a shit about their current subscriber base. They may say it in public, but actions speak louder than words. If I have, for example, 30 subscribers. Those are 30 people who give a damn about what I have to say. So, the least I can do is give a damn back. There are far too many YouTubers, who focus on getting subscribers, while almost shunning their current subscribers. Please don't do that. PLEASE!
Also, small tip: Reply to every single (genuine) comment you get on your video...I still do.
And that's the end of my little rant. Hopefully it contained some sort of helpful information that you can implement to your mindset and, ultimately, to your channel! :)
