yep totally agreeIt took me about 6 weeks - I'm happy with it. I learned not to compare myself to others, every channel is unique and different!
legit funny prank channels, I am sure they easily can get thousands in a month
ASMR and AMSR w/e its called seems to be a huge growing popular genere in the YT ... really fast to grow on that
vloggers, gamers, travelers, well.... those are a bit slower bc its saturated...but there can be a specific niche
I am a dirtbike channel so its very niche, but we target a super tiny audience. I prob will never get larger than 200k subs in my life time while a gaming channel can target millions
