When you are starting your channel, you must determine what type of videos you will post on YouTube. Once you have decided on what you will post on your YouTube account, you should stick to it. You will not simply get 1,000 random subscribers, however you may get 1,000 people who are liking the videos you post but are not yet subscribing.You will then want to settle on the quality of your videos. Standard definition now = low definition. If you dont have the right equipment to record in HD, its time that you made an investment. No-one wants to watch a bad quality video, and with HQ becoming normal, you will have to keep up.Another good idea is to set dates that you will upload certain videos on. For example, you could make a promise to your subscribers that there will be a new video posted every Saturday and Sunday. This will mean your viewers/subscribers will know when to expect videos and so you are more likely to get views on those videos. When setting this promise, you have to be realistic. If you dont have the time to make three videos a week, every week, then dont promise it. You will end up letting your community down and you will drop in popularity and view/sub count.2. Goal settingWhen taking on almost any big task, goal setting is a key aspect. It helps keep you on track, meet deadlines and give you the right state of mind to achieve goals that you have set.The first thing you must do is remember to be realistic, not dramatic. Dont set goals that are unrealistic, for example 20,000 subscribers in the first month of your channel being established. Be realistic, and set a goal that is fairly accomplishable. You can always do some research by looking up a similar channel to what yours will be (make sure the channel is not super famous), and note the subscribers they have. In one week, return to their page and note the subscribers they have now. It will more than likely be an increase, and this can be used to gauge what you should aim for. So if they have managed to get 100 subscribers in a week, try getting half of that.
Adding someone to your friends list is often overlooked in YouTube. Most of the time, video producers want to earn subscribers and not video views but they have missed out on a great opportunity.
To get the word out there for your videos, you will simply add as many people you can find on YouTube to your friends list. 90% of the time, those that receive a friend request will accept it, which is good.
Now, with a substantial amount of friends you can send a mass message to them with a link to your newly uploaded video. Something along the lines of “Hey, I have just uploaded a new video to my channel about ____, please could you help me out by viewing it and commenting with your feedback so that I can improve?”
Not everyone will click the link, but some will. This gets more video views for you, and your channel in turn will become more visited/popular; and if you continue to post videos that have a high view count, you will earn subscribers.
These friends will give you feedback (if you ask them to) on how to improve your videos. With the advice given, you can change aspects that are mainly disliked which will help you to become “Bigger’ on youtube.
4. Using others
There are usually quite a few people that have already made it big on YouTube who may do similar things to you, and you can take advantage of their success and use it for your own good.
Simply try to get involved with them. If you were, for example, doing a Call Of Duty commentary, ask the famous YouTube user if they would be kind enough to join you in a dual-commentary. At the end, make sure there is a link to both of your channels, and allow the famous user to post it on their channel too. This means that all of their viewer base will see the video, but they will also be linked to your YouTube channel at the end of the video, which will generate traffic to your videos and channel.
Sometimes it can be even easier than that, but it may cost you. If the YouTube users are from the 100,000 + subscribers, they may be tempted to charge you for a shout-out in their video. This requires less work for you, but it will cost you the price that the YouTube video producer charges for a shout-out.
