Are you struggling to grow on Youtube? If so, you know how hard it is to get the algorithm to show YOU some love. You have tried every possible way to boost your content but failed miserably in one way or another. Every day we find a new video that is either clickbait, kid-Cancerous content, or some other times random videos with poor but little to no real optimization. It is true that youtube has grown a dark side over the years, but it also has become the Second Biggest Search Engine in the world, and it continues to grow exponentially by the minute. Regardless of the competition, or how saturated your niche may be, or how low the CPMS are you can still have a place to grow and make a living out of it! Let me give you a brief introduction of myself for those that are not familiar with who I am and what I have done (past the Clickbaitiness of the title, there is more to me). Just like plenty of you, I had a full-time job, debts to pay and other real life complications I needed to take care. But with the little time that I was able to spare, instead of playing video games, I focused on learning what was available to me and put into practice. Now eight years later, here I am running a small network of YT channels (owned by me) with a little over 500k Subscribers across, and I am a consultant for some big channels finding ways to keep them growing at a steady rate but efficiently. I have some past threads with some journeys on different methods using youtube as my primary source of traffic. I have shown success in growing and monetizing this traffic outside the platform. All of this applying the same practices we have heard/done over and over again. But is not just about implementing these practices, is also understanding why they work. Here are some updated screenshots of the channels I've shared before, exactly one year ago, and you can see these channels have grown exponentially in a short period. Here is a more recent channel with fresh results so you can see what si possible in just a short term without the need to "boost" your videos. If you wonder what I have done with this money, I didn't spend it on a Ferrari or any fancy chains. I have a family, and I don't have time to waste. You are NOT rich because of how much money you make; what is the point of making money if you don't keep any of it. I used the money to help maintain the stability of my family and reinvested the rest in assets. Today I own a small production company with a little over 30 employees, helping scale my business allowing me to open more channels simultaneously. Can you become a Youtuber or rank on youtube for your product organically? YES, YOU CAN! It's so easy to build an audience, but it takes strategy and proper execution, most importantly patience and determination. You can't do any of them without knowing how youtube works and what they want, then start asking yourself: What would you want to see if you were Youtube? Do you want to see spammers? Do you want your site filled with poor content? Do you want people to exploit your system? Do you want your advertisers(customers) leaving because you are not giving any value? Do you prefer more people coming to your site and staying in longer sessions, or do you want people to use your platform as a way to just get quick and free traffic? Do you want to make the user experience better? How would you do it? There is, of course, two kinds of people here, those that want to make the world a better place and those that don't care and will squeeze every penny out of it. Who would you rather have on your platform? That is knowing where the real value is; REAL engagement being one of the most important ones. You might be asking yourself, What is the point of this thread? I wanted to open myself and help those that are struggling. I am currently in the phase of launching a blog/channel about growing a youtube channel. They are all setup and ready to go, but I need to create content to get the ball rolling. I thought one of the best ways to do that is by listening where people are struggling and using it as a base to start creating content. Instead of making this thread any longer with the useless information you already know. Let's use this thread as an AMA. You can ask me anything you want related to Youtube starting from management marketing, production, monetization, networks, growth, etc. I will answer them to the best of my abilities. NOTE: I do NOT offer my time or assistance for free, which is why we'll keep all questions here. I WILL NOT reveal any of my channels or niches. If you paid attention, you might guess at least one of the markets.
