    I have been doing YouTube for 2 years and 5 months. At the start like every beginner I don't think my content was that great... But these days I have some of the best shot videos out there (and this is not me blowing my own trumpet).

    After 2 years and 5 months I have a little over 9000 subscribers and I keep watching people who have content that is no where as good get their channels skyrocketing. For the longest time I wondered what I was doing wrong. Then I watched a video that really just opened up my mind (for lack of a better term).

    Dan Lok said "Never treat your subscribers and followers like digits" No matter how fantastic your content is, if people aren't looking for it they won't care. All these time I have been doing YouTube, avoiding clickbait titles and all those other practices that I thought were "disgusting" or lacked class. Point is... I was playing myself!

    Forget about what you think you know and create the content that people are looking for. Put the subscribers first and watch your channel explode.

    So here are a few things I have started doing that seem to be working for me:

    1. More clickbaity titles
    2. Create content that already succeeded (YES, steal content ideas if you must)
    3. Attention grabbing thumbnails (self explanatory)
    4. Make more videos!
    5. Share on reddit (Yes there is a bunch of terribly hateful people on there... You are not there to make friends, get the conversation going, get the views, the love and the hate and get out.)

    I hope this helps someone else. I am on a journey to at least double my sub count and view count before the year ends. Join me and share some knowledge you have found to work on YouTube!

    Great info you have here. Can you also share how you create your videos, copied or unique ? I'll be glad to learn that. Am in for any ways.

    I basically shoot all my footage myself. Edit and upload. By copy I simply mean take a video idea that already had 3 million views from another creator - make your own and tag jack.

    "Can you also share how you create your videos, copied or unique?"

    Sorry I don't know how to quote properly.

    I was going to PM you my channel but I don't seem to know how to do that either. lol.
    Yes! Exactly that. You can use tools like tubebuddy to see the tags on the video and just copy it.

    I never said scrape anything. I said steal ideas. Meaning see video that has succeeded and make your own video on the exact same topic. Same title. Etc

    Well I suppose that explains it. Lol, I've been here for so many years just reading and hardly posting. Maybe I'd try to be more active going forward.

    I am sorry, but I don't totally understand what "Never treat your subscribers and followers like digits" mean.

    could you explain it a little bit?

    Pretty much the same thing I would say, the value that you would expect from a video you spend your time watching. Provide that same level of quality to other people too.

    Hey. These are some good tips but you can’t always share videos on reddit. I actually struggle to find subreddits where I can share videos. How about tips on finding reddit subreddits to post your videos? Are there any other ways to promote your videos?

    Get yourself some fan accounts with next level clickbaiting . I see many fan accounts that upload videos of main channels and many times they perform better than main channel due to their clickbaiting. This will not only improve your exposure and reachness on YouTube but will also cover other tags that main account cannot do.

    I would suggest keeping main channel/account in accordance to YouTube guidelines otherwise YouTube is worse than thanos now, you work will disappear within seconds.

    Reddit won't accept your content.
    They will block You channel and content on Reddit. Dont take risk. I have Good experience in Reddit and many time get success but with Blog.

    You are right. You can't always share videos on reddit... but sometimes you can. When you can't, don't spam and you should be fine on reddit.

    PM and I send it to you. I don't think we are allowed to do that here.
