    So I`m not big but not small either on YouTube I`m at 250K views with 820 Subscribers. I make around 400-650 views per day. gaining 1-2 subscribers/day .

    I signed up for all the social networks, Google+ FaceBook Twitter Myspace [wich seems it`s dying] Instagram. As always problems there too, got suspended on Twitter after reaching 2000 followers [aggresive following] my Google+ is shit, [only 15 people have me in their circles and I have 800 in MY CIRCLES wich sucks] facebook only 340 likes and myspace 30 friends and 1 listen so far.

    Now I`m gonna try different tactics. First I wanna make an article on Wikipedia about myself [wich I already tried pretending I was a fan but an editor said there was not enough information, I don`t really know how to make a good article] so yeah I`m gonna learn some things about wikipedia and edit my article see if I get approved next time.

    Then I`m gonna comment on different music forums,websites,blogs so I can see if I get any results. I`m gonna post here my numbers after I do that.

    That`s all I can think of right now. IF YOU GUYS HAVE ANY ADVICES, BRING `EM ON !

    I don`t know if anyone will be interested in this but this is mainly for me to keep myself motivated.

    I do not care about money. I`m just a kid I don`t need money :) I just want people to know me and have fans and stuff like other youtubers that do music covers.

    Thanks ! Your comments keep me going even more. I want to scale this up to at least 800 views a day. I`m currently trying to make this Wikipedia article. and by the way if anyone knows how to make some cool wikipedia articles hit me up with a PM your help is greatly appreciated. I`m also thinking of creatin an IMDB profile so more exposure.

    sorry if I missed it but what do you do and what it that people want to be your fan for? Are you a musician, writer, great dancer, actor, famous blogger or what? You need to be good at something first or at least have some focus on what you want to convince people you are worth been a fan for! if you have nothing then might I suggest to make a music video of yourself singing or doing something to grab peoples attention so it has a chance of going viral.

    That`s not how I wanna do it. I don`t like fake stuff. Plus that I would never buy views to become famous. I wanna work hard for my fans ! I wanna earn fans the right way.

    I fail to see how an IMDB or Wikipedia profile will help you in any way.

    It will. trust me for a musician and actor is important. It`s all about connections. and for Twitter to verify me faster. I`m also gonna go with CDBaby to sell my music so Twitter will know I`m for real and verify me.

    You should use PPD for your music so your fans can get it for free. Put up a sample of your music online and then include the full download link in the description. You can have a free link (ppd) and a paid link if you like (other music store).

    I also like that you are at least trying to go white hat on this. However, remember that you can get banned at any time even if you think you are following the rules. I would keep a backup of all of your videos so you can reupload somewhere if something happens to your site.

    Okay, gone black hat. cause it was obviously a lost cause to keep on white hat. as you guys said, a lot of competition. So basically ordered 40K retention views 20 K followers on Twitter and with FaceBook I`m still trying to recover my credit card so I can make accounts and get some "free advertising" so I can gain real likes. Imdb is still not answering as for Wiki, well I`m out of money but when I`ll get some more I`ll just pay some guys from a big website to make it.
