    In my opinion to have success on YouTube you have to keep going. First videos will be bad or mediocre maybe, it's normal. After you do 30-50 video you will see a huge improvement on your voice, style, attitude! Just don't focus so much on subscribers, but on the quality content you should focus ! Wish you all good,just subscribed ;)

    It's so difficult to keep track of everything you do... But I think a lot about titles, thumbnails, keywords, and I try to promote on reddit (you gotta be very careful where you post though) on g+ groups and other places but not as known.

    My first experience with reddit was last year, when I didn't know much about it. The video got 1k+ views in 1 day, which for me was huge since all the other video don't go past 40-100-200 views max. At the same time though, I got some haters because first it wasn

    My coaching channel below grew almost exclusively because of collaborations with folks like Tim Schmoyer. My content here is so niche, that not many folks are looking for it. But Tim really helped me build a strong following.

    My personal channel grows mostly because I picked an audience that YouTube neglects and serve them with really great content. So it does well in search and YouTube promotes it because people are really hungry for it.

    For me, it has been active on websites like this one and collaborations. But the one thing that has helped me the most is video seo, which is basicly that you are trying to get you videos ranked in the search results. You can type it in on google and youtube and you learn enough about it.

    That being said. It also depends on the kinds of videos you make. I have many tutorials ranked in search results that talk about certain tools in a certain animation software. They don't get much views. But I also have a cartoon parody of Donald Trump which has gotten a lot of views. So making videos about populair subjects like Donald Trump certainly helps to get more views.

    I think the main power thing to help grow your channel is posting once or twice a week

    I have 94 subscribers, but I experienced major growth last year when I got engaged in a subreddit community that had to do with what I do on my channel (covering video game music) I got a lot of collaborations and contacts through posting on that subreddit and joining in on community projects, tbh that's the best thing I ever did to grow my channel.

    I also post my vids on twitter, facebook, tumblr and reddit and that seems to help Interacting on other videos and on my own seems to help too! Staying on top of doing all of that is key to channel growth, I think, even if the growth is slow.

    I'm trying to grow my channel any way I can. I post to reddit, Twitter, Facebook, and to the odd forum or two. What works for me the best is talking to my friends in person. It's slow, but it works. You just have to put yourself out there as much as possible.

    I couldn't agree more. It's crazy how quickly you improve when you just start uploading. No one can be a pro from the beginning!
