How to get your first 1000 authentic YouTube subscribers


In this blog, we are going to talk about accumulating your first 1000 authentic YouTube subscribers but there are a few questions you need to consider before starting, such as –

· What is the purpose of your channel?

· Why do you need the following?

· Who is your target audience?

Validity Over Views

Validity matters more than views.

This rule is vital when it comes to content creation and distribution on your YouTube channel. Some of the newer users tend to think about the benefits YouTube will provide them rather than focusing on what they can give to their audience.

If the objective of your channel is to elevate, inspire and build your YouTube community then the direction you are heading in is hopeful.

Optimisation across platforms

Members of the YouTube community are likely part of a larger social media network that spreads across various apps i.e., Twitter, Instagram, Tik Tok, etc.

You can optimise other media platforms to direct traffic towards your YouTube content, by being consistent with account activity. This will help to extend your reach to potential subscribers.

Channel Trailers

Once you have established the goals of your YouTube channel and released a few videos you will start to see which type of content attracts the most views and helps increase interaction.

With this information, you can also create short trailers and include several elements to attract and retain viewer attention.

Focus on SEO

Content creators must use keywords and tags in their titles and descriptions to expand their content reach. The provision of more information allows internet surfers and viewers to get the best results from their searches.

YouTube is the second biggest search engine in the world so don’t expect that people will easily find your channel. A viewer has millions of options to choose from. It is next to impossible that they will themselves find your channel out of the crowd of channels in your niche. You will need to make it happen. Conduct in-depth research of the keywords of your subject so that you can identify and understand what people are searching for.

Youtuber Collaboration

Collaborating with existing content creators who influence your target market can also help to boost engagement and position you to obtain a thousand followers through joint projects, shoutouts and sponsors. It also brings a social aspect to the content community allowing for a transfer of knowledge which can, in turn, improve the quality of videos.

Grow Your Channel

Hopefully, this blog has been able to provide you with concrete methods that can help you grow your channel. These methods will not only increase subscribers but will also result in consistent output on your channel.

Regular posting and optimisation can help you quickly reach the 4000-hour watch time mark for video monetisation which increases the chances of being accepted onto the YouTube partner programme that allows you to generate revenue.
