    Hello there,

    What are your top five tips are for someone who has just started their
    Youtube channel in hopes of turning it into a future passive income?


    Collectively we possibly could learn from each others knowledge and also create a gold
    mine of information for another person's first steps. My own personal experience:


    1. Create a Solid Brand

    (Business Name, Logo, Secondary Art, About/ Future Plans, Platform, and Niche)

    2. Plan out Video Ideas
    (Content/ Keywords/ Meta Tags)

    3. Start Low Work High
    (Aim for Low Competition Keywords and Work Towards Medium After Gaining Authority)

    4. HR Boost to Outrank
    (HR Stats to Outrank Other Videos: Views/ Likes/ Dislikes/Comments/Shares)

    5. Network to Outgrow the Boosting Step
    (Relevant Comments on Other Videos/ Collaborations/ Paid Shout Outs)

    Bonus: Affiliate Links in Description for Purchasable Products Relevant to Your Video/
    Social Media Links in Description/ Facebook for Goals, Merchandise, Ads/ Website for
    Sales and Lead Building.

    1. Be consistent. (At least 1 video a day - this has never failed me. It may take awhile but one video will eventually take off.)
    2. Drive traffic via Social Media. I think people forget Twitter has thousands of people searching for certain keywords every single day... Find what people search for in your niche and saturate it.
    3. Don't get comfortable.

    I'm sorry but you forgot the most important point. you have to be consistent at least one video per day but if you are just starting out I would suggest 2 to 3 videos per day. also don't try to be fake be yourself, before trying to sell something you should know how to give valuable information or entertain or do what your audience expects you to do. so you should give before wanting a return.

    All the rest is fluff, because if you are consistent YouTube we put you in recommendations.

    Yes, at least one a day. I say 'one' because If you're having to create unique content that requires hours of producing, editing, etc, you'll get burnt out very quick trying to do 2,3,4+ a day, mixed in with your daily responsibilities.

    If you're uploading simple videos that take 5-10 minutes to complete, then of course scale and upload more videos daily.
    The trick is just to get that one video to sky rocket (which one eventually will if you're putting out quality content with keywords people are searching for.) After that, growth tends to be a lot easier to come by. You start noticing your videos showed up in suggestions more and more.

    YouTube isn't a complicated game, it's just one that requires time and consistency.

    Scalability plays a huge role in any business ...
    Along with creating videos, that take a relatively short time to create depending on your daily upload schedule, I think that having a prebuilt catalog of video content to pick and choose from and then drip feed with would be very useful. This preparation also being particularly helpful when you are in need of time someplace else such as a second or third business of your own.

    Having this ability would also create a great position in the future with which you could hire an employee to do for you if say you could only run 3 businesses with the time you put towards them but want to create a 4th as well.

    I think pumping out a high quality video every day is not an easy thing to do over any extended length of time.

    i think the most important thing is to forget about money and just let it get to you naturally cuz if u think abt it everyday and ur still not making a dollar ull get tired and give up.

    Another tip since it is your Channel and you can approve or disapprove any comments put additional affiliate links into the comments of your good performing videos.
    Always Use different screen names and up vote them. That way people dont think you are a spam channel that only cares about money. You get a few more affiliate links out there without annoying any of your viewers.

    Good luck!

    Also make content that people want to watch!
