So running a successful YouTube channel is a hard work or just a luck? According to me, it’s 50% hard work and 50% smart work. No doubt like any other job profile YouTubing is also a hard working field but most of the time it takes smart work more than a hard work especially at the initial stage of your channel. When you reach to 10k to 20k subscribes your subscribers starts frequently growing. At this stage you have to start doing hard work because this is the phase when you don’t need to worry about subscribers, you will not struggle with views & subscribers and your subscribers starting building trust on you & you have to maintain their trust on you & for that what you need to worry about is a good & more reliable contents and for that you really need to work hard because there is a huge competition on YouTube nowadays and on the other hand when you are new and just started your channel you need to do smart work, you have to apply smart tricks along with the good contents to gain views and subscribers because at this stage people don’t recognize you and your channel, you have to attract them. I personally know many small YouTubers who have spent 1-2 years and uploaded 200-300 videos but still have 1k-1.5k subscribers. These YouTubers are very talented and deserve much more but still struggling and there are many popular YouTubers who have more than lac subscribers but in terms of the good content, they are not up to the mark. There is a phrase in Hindi ‘ Jo Dikhta Hai Wahi Bikta Hai’ and this literally goes with this situation. Many popular YouTubers in terms of weak content the way they are presenting their videos with all the video shooting equipment and with full confidence their video looks more attractive and viewers subscribe their channel because they think they are more professional and reliable. Have you ever seen a girl who actually has pimple on her face or pimple marks on her face showing you a remedy for it & showing you the real effects on her face, maybe there are some but majority of the channels are like that a girl is showing you the remedy for oily and acne prone skin and for pimple marks & she herself has a crystal clear and dry or normal skin & still people are asking her for remedies for a pimple & oily skin just because she has a beautiful skin & she herself is very beautiful, she looks more professional & she already has more than lac subscribers all of these attract more people whether they are providing an effective remedy or not. Same thing goes with technical channel there are people who want to learn latest techniques or latest technical information but if a channel teaches you something in depth in a 10-15 minutes video people either watch the video by skipping it or close the video after 2-3 minutes, on the other hand, a person in a 5 minute video is talking mostly about the rubbish things but with full confidence & with some tricks, people love such videos give likes & instantly subscribe that channel
MY WORDS ON IT:
Becoming a successful YouTuber is not a luck it is all about tricks, techniques, smart and hard work because if your channel is not running successfully you are lacking with something & you have to analyze it & start working on it.
