It’s a goal among many YouTube creators to attract more subscribers. But there’s a certain number that stands out.
When creators reach 1,000 subscribers on YouTube, it unlocks a lot of opportunities. It’s not only an indicator of a dedicated following, but an opportunity to start monetizing and growing their channel.
They can finally join the YouTube Partner Program and make money from their content with ads. Or sell products like merch using YouTube Product Shelf. Here are some ways creators can make better content, attract more viewers, and reach that goal without getting burnt out.
Remember, be reasonable with yourself when setting your goals. 1,000 subscribers might seem like a lot, but it’s actually not that bad when you break it down into smaller goals.
For example, if you want to get 100 subscribers by the end of November or 250 in the new year, that’s much more manageable. Plus, it’ll be more fun when you achieve these mini goals along the way.
Include keywords like “YouTube” and “subscribers” in your content to help people find your channel more easily. And most importantly, don’t give up! With a little consistency and dedication, you’ll reach your subscriber goals in no time.
Use That Button
The YouTube subscribe button is a great way to increase your subscribers. You can create your own button or download a graphic you find online.
How to add a Subscribe Button:
– Go into YouTube Studio.
– Click Customization in the left hand menu.
– Select the Branding tab.
– Find the Video Watermark section.
– Upload your graphic and choose the time during the video you want the button to appear.
– Finally, hit publish!
Identify Key Content
DID YOU KNOW: If you have over 30 videos on your channel, you can see which videos brought in the most subscribers? You can track this in the YouTube Analytics page of your YouTube Studio. It’s incredibly helpful to see what content is resonating with people and bringing in subscribers.
This also makes it much easier when you’re coming up with a content plan for your channel. You don’t have to waste time trying out a bunch of different video ideas when you know what’s the most successful. Identify the titles and keywords that are successful for your channel. The numbers don’t lie!
Expand Your Audience
If you’re looking to grow your YouTube channel, consider collaborating with other YouTubers who share your interests. This can be a great way to expose yourself to new audiences and come up with fresh video ideas.
To find potential collaborators, start by searching for popular keywords related to your niche. Then reach out to creators who seem like a good fit and see if they’re interested in working together.
By collaborating with others, you can not only get more subscribers but also have more fun creating content that you’re passionate about. So don’t go it alone – there are plenty of other YouTubers out there who would love to team up with you!
Always Have New Videos
It’s easier to get subscribers than it is to be consistent with uploading new videos onto YouTube. The YouTube algorithm is less likely to boost your channel and content to other YouTubers when you haven’t posted in a video in a month or even two weeks. People will find another creator that can satisfy their viewing needs and feed the content machine.
That doesn’t mean you have to go overkill with the videos, though. Find a schedule that works for you. Once a week is a good model to follow. Make it easier on yourself when you plan ahead. We have some tips on that:
– Make sure your videos are high quality and offer value to viewers.
– Don’t post too frequently or infrequently – find a happy medium that works for you.
– Be consistent with your posting schedule.
– Have a content plan to make things easier on yourself.
– Use keywords and tags to help YouTube’s algorithm boost your content.
– Interact with other YouTubers and viewers in your niche to grow your audience.
We know growing your channel is hard work, and we hope these tips help that subscriber count grow in time. When you do reach that 1,000 subscribers benchmark, merch is a fun and easy way to monetize your channel.
