Might as well back up my thread that I made a few days ago in the Making Money section. And this is a journey to follow after the Digital Marketing thread was finished just a few minutes ago. I welcome you to the crazy adventures of AVILUX and I'm sure you'll enjoy the ride. If not, at best you'll learn something that could your IM career. Today is the first day I'm deciding to go HAM on my personal YT channel. I haven't been able to focus much on it as I was quite busy working on my marketing company over the past couple of months. My first video went live on the 19th of March this year. Now I'm 60+ videos in with 317 subscribers. My first goal will be aiming for 1,000 subscribers. From there on it should be much smoother sailing for 10,000 subscribers. All my attention will be focused on this. Split attention can destroy anything, and even though I believe slightly in multi-tasking, I must test out how well I work when I apply all my efforts into creating this. Even though I've worked with millions of followers on Youtube before, I've never had a personal channel before. (I mean, I tried once before but only uploaded 2 videos or so and never bothered to promote it, so that doesn't really count.) I will show you step by step on how to create a YT empire. My niche? It's rather unique. It's not for the broad audience, I'll tell you that. I'm a little nontraditional with my videos and my general marketing approaches. I'm not focused on the money. I'm just focused on building a solid base for this channel now, so that I'm able to have a cement floor for my Empire in the months to come. Where am I now? A few days left into my rent at this current apartment before I'll probably have to borrow money from my uncle in order to sublet or find a roommate or something next week. Am I stressed out? Only partially, really the pressure's coming from the fact that I want to DOMINATE. I'M HUNGRY TO DOMINATE AND EXCEL IN WHAT I'M BEST AT. I cannot stand to be average. Other than having 300 subs, I also have over 51K total views and one of my best videos is towering above the rest, approaching quickly 20K views. Report #1 I shall spend tonight rendering tomorrow's video, and then the rest of the time will be left up to promoting my channel as much as possible. I shall be using Reddit, Twitter, Instagram, Forums and other YT channels to promote. And one post on FB. I'm already running Followliker for my IG account which has over 12K followers but most are ghost at this point. (There's been periods of time where I just stopped caring about my personal IG totally and engagement is CRAP!) I'm messaging nearly 100 people right now with a picture and a decent message to get them to subscribe. I shall do a promotion post tonight as well. I will use Twitter to build a brand new account just for engaging with people for certain hashtags. I shall be trying to connect with as many people as possible tonight. For reddit, I will be using multiple accounts. Some will be "spam" where they just post to many subreddits the same video(s), while others will follow the 90/10 rule to try and maintain quality. For forums, I shall try and find some tonight that will fit in my niche and build quality accounts there. Long-term, the strategy is to give, give, give and finally get.
