My 5 Year Old Is Starting To Get Popular

5 replies
I featured him on one of my videos, and now he has a few of his own. He's getting more subscribers per day than I would get in a year on youtube, lol
Here is his latest video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfWhGkxE9Ow

I started a facebook fan page, tweeted the video, etc. Is there anything else I should be doing? I've tweeted to Ellen and a few other people but I feel like these tweets don't really get seen.

    Aww so cute you little boy is. He deserves the success, have you tried Reditt? And forums. Also, if you are tweeting YouTube related video use #youtube then tweet and see if it improves the views or not.

    Not really digging it. I can see how some might find it cute and amusing (with him being 5 and all) but in my opinion its too commercial looking.

    Not only that, (and I hate to be the one to break it to you) but your son really hasn't got any singing talent at all; it may sound harsh, but its true.

    In my opinion, it would've been much better shot in an amateur home movie style instead of trying to make it look like a music video. Those are the ones that go viral. This just looks like some adult has put him up to it and is pulling all the strings.

    Anyway, good luck in trying to make an income off your 5 year old child. Maybe you could foster a couple of orphans too and throw them in as backing singers.

      I'm not trying to make money off my son. He's enjoying making videos because he's always seen me do them. He's only been playing music for 2 months and is really having fun with it. I've taught him drums, keyboards, guitar and a bit of singing. I think for a 5 year old he's doing great.

    Here's the biggest thing ...

    If he really is enjoying doing it, then keep posting new videos on some kind of regular schedule, even if it's just every other week. The video doesn't look like something you put together in a day and he is a young boy.

    If his interest keeps up, then regular posting will help keep audience as well as draw more people. It's a slow process but this stuff will get shared eventually and if you keep it up you'll hit a viral homerun and get A LOT of views and subscribers all of a sudden.

    The guy that does one of the most popular channels on YouTube (Equals 3) was putting out videos for probably a year and a half and no one heard of him. Then he had a huge hit that got shared all over the place and he became almost an overnight celebrity.

    Don't know if you're familiar with the name Gary Vaynerchuk but his story is very similar.

    It requires persistence and requires posting on a pretty defined schedule that DOES NOT GET MISSED.

    Not saying you'll gain the kind of wild success of these two just saying what it really takes.
