3 Months On Youtube: Here are my thoughts….

Hello my friend!

I have just completed my third month on Youtube and today I wanted to update you on my thoughts about the app. The good, the bad, the ugly, and most importantly, if it is something that you should consider putting time into.

I’ve built multiple audiences on multiple platforms including pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, my blog, and my email list and one thing I wish I would have done with all of them is post about my journey in the early stages.

Because let’s be honest, there is a good amount of effort involved with building an audience and the beginning can feel, well, grooling. 

Which is why I want to share my raw and uncut journey with you so that you don’t feel alone in your quest to grow online. 

9 times out of 10 people are actually doing better than they think when growing an audience but often self sabotage because they are comparing themselves to someone elses journey and timeline.

But that’s just not how life, business, or growing an audience works. 

But first, If you are a content creator, coach, consultant, or service provider and are interest in adding or replacing your revenue stream with a digital product, I have a special gift for you. 

Creating a digital product is the best way I know to create a semi passive income stream online and is fairly easy to do. 

To help you get started, I put together a list of over 200 digital product ideas and you can get it for free by clicking the link in the description.

Youtube is a slow burn

Like it or hate it, you need to have a long term strategy if you are going to build on Youtube.

Videos can take a few days or weeks to take off which is a really cool IMP but it also means that you need to be able to stick to posting consistently long term if you want to really get a return on investment. 

Youtube has a higher conversion rate for email subscribers than actually youtube subscribers

I have no idea if this is specific to my account, but I actually have gotten more email subscribers than actual Youtube subscribers which is really cool since I have an entire email marketing strategy. 

And if you’ve followed me for any amount of time, I always recommend starting an email list from day one because the money is in the list. 

Personally I find Youtube way less stressful than Instagram 

I’m not totally sure why but I think it’s because by nature it takes more planning to post on Youtube than it does on Instagram which give your overall content more of a cohesive flow. 

I actually enjoy it more than blogging which I didn’t expect and I definitely enjoy it more than Instagram

As I said before, I think that is because there is a cohesion that takes place when you are starting with long form then breaking everything up into bite size pieces. Rather than shooting at the hop when it comes to creating content.

The analytics are next level

There is a whole studio for creators that allows you to truly analyze everything about each individual piece of content. I found his super helpful since I am super analytic driven. 

I’ve gained 76 subscribers to my channel and 100 email subscribers which I’m actually super happy with.

Now I know that those numbers aren’t earth shattering but what I look for in building a new platform is trends. 

If you are trending upward consistently then keep going. 

Your efforts will build over time and start to multiply. The magic is in building and using momentum. 

I didn’t expect to see bigger numbers until month 6 which we are trending toward so with that I’m super happy. 

In Conclusion:

Youtube is a platform that is perfect for content creators, coaches, consultants, and even service providers. 

The key to building on Youtube is…

  1. Consistency over time
  2. Having a clear niche but sprinkling in lifestyle every now and then 
  3. Driving all your traffic to an email list
