Successful 'YouTubers' are some of the most talked about people on the internet. How do we become one of the famous YouTubers in the future? Have you ever took the time to check out the most successful YouTubers? What the heck are they doing that we aren't??? Is it really all about the content?
 
I'm confused why YouTubers is in quotes. I personally just jumped into YouTube without having watched any content, so I've never checked out a big 'YouTuber'.

Sorry, I ate the lion's share of a batch of chocolate chip cookies this afternoon and I think all the sugar is making me feisty. It's been said many times on this forum before, we are all hoping to combine the magical elements of great content, consistency, time, luck, and unicorn blood.
 
It depends - many of them have used special high audience retention hacks combined with high level of productivity (many movies for short period of time). It really depends on the channel.
 
I think now on these days.You have to make something very very special.Second a lot of work and then even more work.If you make something so special then you will be on the 10 youtubers on the Country. Is very rare to make a channel and be famous(100.000) subs and more on a year or two.
Many YOutubers try for years and cant get no 5000 or 10000. I think its a little of luck but most of this is something very special and work work work..
 
It takes lots of hard work, and never giving up. But you also have to love what your doing. If you don't it shows, and it just wont work out. Also people get such high expectations for their channel and then get too upset when they don't meet those expectations. Setting reasonable goals for yourself, and always be willing to change things up is the way to go.
 
Timing, mostly! It's easy to forget that most of these guys have been doing it for years - for instance, PewDiePie (most subscribed on YouTube for those less familiar) started in 2010 so he's had plenty of time to grow - not to mention the fact that in 2010, Let's Players weren't as much of a "thing" as they are now, so he was able to take the market by storm before folks like Markiplier, JackSepticEye or Game Grumps had even started! They're all 2012, I believe.
Man, I probably sound so stalker-ish, but I'm honestly just good at remembering numbers. ;-;

Now, it really would have to be about the content, more than anything. That and a metric tonne of luck.
I mean, you should care about what you're producing anyway, but because of how saturated YouTube has become in more or less every genre known to humankind, you have to work 100x harder to be seen and have people go
hot diggety dang that person is mad cool better clickety-click that red button hoo boy

They started with a hobby, had a passion and it turned into something that people liked. Others start YouTube, start to copy what big YouTubers are doing and then expect the world. To those people I have to say: "Sorry, you are not the first to try and copy, sorry your content just doesn't rhyme with people... sorry... you are lacking that "X" factor."

If you look at the numbers too closely it will have an effect on your content. People smell someone who is fake a mile away. Be original, be yourself. If it's forced, the videos you upload will reveal your true identity. Fake, Fraud and Sinker.
