Many of us want to build a successful business. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, marketer, or even just a regular citizen who wants to start a side business, the first step is to create your initial prototype and test it as soon as possible.
But unless you have access to unlimited funds or connections at every level of society, building a profitable business from scratch can seem like an insurmountable challenge. That is why starting a business online, such as a YouTube channel, is a great path. It is free to sign-up and all you have to do is to make great videos.
However, if you are willing to put in the work and resist giving up when things get challenging, then there may be hope for you yet! So today I show you how I went from zero subscribers on YouTube to 300 subscribers in just two months with no marketing expenses.
But remember: anyone who has been around YouTube long enough knows that you can’t just show up and expect things to happen. You need to put in the hard work and stay positive all the time.
And also no, I did not buy them. I am not saying you should not, it can be the quickest way if you have a budget and you use a safe website. I did it for my second channel. But, today we talk only about organic subscribers with no expenses.
The first step to getting subscribers on YouTube is to create a strong foundation
One way to do this is by focusing on quality over quantity. When it comes to growth, consistency is the key. Never give up and always have a positive outlook. I started with one subscriber in April of 2022 and now I have a few more than 300!
Put the quantity
If you’re just starting out, it’s best to focus on quantity first.
Think about how long it takes to build a basic website or blog. It takes time and patience, which is the thing that produces amazing results in the end. The more videos you have on YouTube, the better chance you have of reaching 300 subscribers or more and eventually getting views on those videos too.
Don’t be afraid to try different things
The first step in building your YouTube subscriber base is to figure out what you should be posting and when. This isn’t easy, but it’s a necessary step. It also takes some trial and error. For example, you can try posting daily to your channel while giving information about it or post multiple times a day with less information and see what works best.
You should also try posting videos that are short, but unique enough that people will want to watch more of them. But don’t be afraid to try different things and don’t just rely on one strategy if it doesn’t work and don’t give up on something if the first few videos don’t get traction. If you keep at it and work hard, I promise that you will find what works for your audience and reach success in no time at all!
Build up your subscriber base with consistent uploads
Quality and quantity is an important mindset to have when trying to build up your subscriber base. You need to make sure that you are uploading videos consistently and putting out high quality content. Consistency is key because it takes time to build up a subscriber base.
How long does it take? Well, it depends on your goals. If you want to grow your subscriber base quickly, then you should be putting out new content everyday with the goal of getting 300 subscribers in two months. In this case, it would take around three hours of work every day for two months. You can also go about building your subscriber base slowly by being consistent with content but only having a goal of getting 100 subscribers in six months. This would take about 10 hours of work each week for six months.
Get some feedback from viewers to improve your channel and get more subscribers
In order to make sure your channel is viable and you have a large following, analyze what your viewers are saying. Not only will this help you build better content on your channel, it will also allow you to get more subscribers as well. When I first started my channel, I’d always ask for feedback from my viewers on what they would like to see more of on my channel. Nowadays, I give them a heads-up before new videos go live so that they can subscribe if they want to see those videos. In return, I’ll give them the opportunity to leave me feedback on their favorite videos from my channel so that I know how to improve in the future. This method of communication with viewers has been very beneficial for both myself and my audience.
I hope this article helped you to get 300 subscribers too, if not there yet. One thing that helps me stay motivated is seeing all the people who subscribe to my YouTube channel every day and seeing all the views they get. It gives me a sense of accomplishment knowing that people are interested in watching my videos, and even though it may be hard at times and there may be tough times ahead…it’s worth it in the end! And 300, a goal today, will just be a new starting point!
