< [[ PROOF ] ]> See how I get my "first 10,000 Youtube Subscribers"

75 replies

FACT: Video marketing is the future of Internet marketing

But most people, even some professional marketers, are confused by video marketing.

So watch how I grow a Youtube Channel from nothing, to 10,000 subscribers in the most competitive niche on the planet, and how you can follow along and copy me.

No silly loopholes
(that will eventually close, leaving you high and dry)

No stupid hacks
(that put your account, and hard work, at risk)

Just a solid, straight up strategy that's consistently proven to work.

This is my Youtube Channel (you might like it) - so verify that it's real, and the audience is engaged and growing at a steady rate.

Background...

My mission was originally to complete a 90 day content marketing challenge. You can see the results below.

But following on from that, my mission then became to build an audience through delivering maximum value to them.

THE RESULTS: 90 Day Content Challenge: 1 Piece of Content Everyday For 90 Days

I have just completed a 90 Day Content Challenge, creating one piece of content every day, for 90 days.

For your benefit, I am being completely transparent and taking you inside the actual analytics.

My Youtube Channel is about digital marketing; traffic generation strategies, conversion optimization and copywriting.

So you can verify that I'm really doing this, here is the Youtube Channel.

Here are the results, why I decided to do this, and if you should do it too:


UPDATE: I've completed 100 days so far, here are the results:


It's been tough at times, but incredibly rewarding.

You make up your own mind though.

Overall results, 90 days in



Compared with the previous 90 days

      Good question.

      Every video will be transcribed and turned into a daily blog post.

      The audio will be extracted and turned into a daily podcast.

      Every 90 days blog posts compiled by topic and turned into lead magnets, for every topic I cover.

        Yes, this is a good system- Tripling your content, thereby getting more subscribers, backlinks, among other benefits.

          Nice work Mick.

          I use Rev for transcriptions. They charge $1 per minute and can cope with any accent

          Also do other services but they are quick and very accurate on the transcription front.

          I used them for exactly what you are doing and you can always put the content together into Kindle for extra reach.

          If you want to go to the next level if you also record hi-def video you can put out a DVD series - use Kunaki - $1.10 US per DVD - up to 5 copies. On demand and you can create a sales page inside their platform with auto shipping for free. Takes a bit of work but once you have the flow worked out it is set and forget.

          You can promote boxed sets of the content - auto ship. Easy and profitable.

          Little secret - you can add an insert inside the DVD cover all you have to do is design it and upload to Kunaki. Then you drive traffic from your DVD to a membership or auto fulfilment where they get every new DVD for $XXX.

          This is so easy once you get it going and 1 DVD produced on demand and delivered US for like $5.50 and 12 odd world wide you can work with that.

          We do 5 DVD packs to stay on the cheapest production costs and those run at average of $16.50 delivered.

          After that you can put the DVD content onto Amazon and cross link the kindles to the DVDs etc.

          Hopefully some food for thought.

          Best regards,

          Ozi

            DO I HAVE AN ACCENT?!?

            We used to use Kunkai in exactly the way you describe for my TV show (not as exciting as it sounds), and ship boxsets through them.

            Never once had a problem, and loved the automation of it.

      Each video will be repurposed.

      So for every 1 piece of content I create, I will eventually have at least 3 pieces of content to use.

      This gives me X3 more exposure and reach, across different platforms.

    Great results as expected. Create content consistently is the best strategy. You will see even more traffic from your work when these videos will get ranked for relevant keywords.

    Good work!

      I started with videos.

      However, I'm now producing 1 video a day, 1 blog post a day, and 1 podcast a day.

      I might make another Warrior Path thread for the blog posts, and the podcasts, or keep everything in this thread. Not sure which is best.

      Here's how I've layered it, by slowing introducing another column of my content marketing strategy.

      Nov 22 starts with daily videos
      Jan 2 introduces daily blog posts
      March 1 introduces daily podcasts

      Once I got comfortable with making videos every day, I threw in blog posts. When I got comfortable with that, I threw in podcasting.

      JOURNAL UPDATE: 12/03/18

      I've currently got 12 days to go, and planing my strategy once this challenge finishes.

      Today, I want this to be over. I've got the flu and it's one of the hardest days so far.

      During this challenge I've gone through Christmas Day, and New Years Day, which took a lot of discipline, but today is tough. I just want sleep.

      Despite that, I've shot today's video. Now for the blog post, and podcast, hopefully.

      I admire you for your effort in this.. You are not doing "A Piece" of content every day, you are doing 3... A drain unto itself.

      Something I have learned over the years.. "the grind" is just that, THE GRIND. and day in and day out, IT WILL take its toll. Your body will FORCE a break when its needed. Some might go so far as to say that it is your inner self ( the little destructive monster on your shoulder ) that is at play and trying to break your success. I truly believe, THE GRIND has simply ground you down, and you need a day.

      So with that... When you are in the sweet spot, and THE GRIND is effortless, push that little extra.. and create an additional video.. the next day create the matching additional blog, and the day after the matching podcast.. once or twice a week, you can have material in the can for days like today.

      When I am starting a project and go on runs like you are doing.. I will actually start with a 5 to 7 day backlog before I actually start the 30 days.. its creates a buffer, drops the stress level, and makes the whole creative experience a bit more pleasuable. A day away, is just that A DAY AWAY, and sometimes its needed.

      Hope you feel better, and keep up the great work!

        Thank you for that.

        JOURNAL UPDATE: 14/03/18

        My last full-day off was on the 19th of Nov, 2017... and I've slowly ramped up my output from there, over the 3 months.

        New pieces of daily content have only been added to my routine once I'm comfortable with the previous addition.

        The experiment has been worthwhile, and I've learned a lot about myself, my strengths and my weaknesses.

        Discipline is my friend.

        For creating content my sweet spot is 3 pieces of content per day, Mon-Fri.

        That's when it's the most fun, and most productive. I'm loving the experiencing.

        I always believed that "I never switch off" when it comes to this stuff... but this experience has shown me that I NEED to switch off, sometimes...

        Gimme 1 or 2 days off a month and I'm good.

      Kind of.

      I think Youtube doesn't like it when a video ends a session (sending traffic away from Youtube).

      For that reason I mention my website, but don't give a direct call to action to sign up to my list on every video.

      I'm noticing a difference between the traffic that comes organically via Youtube, and traffic that comes from adverts.

      Generally, organic traffic is way cooler, more into what I'm doing, and more supportive.

      Because Youtube subscribers get email notifications when I upload, it kinda acts like an email list... with the obvious limitations.

      ...And I will respond to the other awesome comments when I get a bit more time

          I get that from you... It was more a point that with work, reaching the new limits is far from out of reach.. and your latest post proves that.

          But its kinda case and point to this thread in general... you are focusing on the PROCESS and not so concerned with the outcome.. a far cry from the other threads in this section.

          YOU are a glaring example of "THE GRIND" and the type of success that can be had, by doing so. I commend you greatly for this thread and your obvious work ethic.

          Keep up the great work!

          Whats really key here... Your growth may be " Slow " but it is spread across 4 or 5 platforms.. Insta? YT, Podcast, Blog, and I am sure an email list. Slow growth across all of that.. and its no longer so slow. You are grinding smarter, not harder. You are showinig the REAL work that is involved in success. Without question you are building something that will last.

        so you started in February with roughly 200 Subs... and you hit 1000 in 5.5 months ( +/- ) so give or take 145 subs per month.. BUT NOW you are saying you slayed 100 subs in 15 days?

        This is really kinda fun to watch WTG!!!

    This looks quite interesting so far. Keep us posted. I would like to know a couple of things:

    1. What kind of promotions have you done to get views to your videos? Have you done any kind of advertising, SEO, backlinking etc or did you just focus on creating informative content and the videos started generating interest by themselves?

    2. Did you try to monetize the traffic in any way? If so, were you able to generate any sort of income or profits for all your efforts so far?

      Will do!

      1. No promotion beyond posting to my blog, Fb group, and emailing my list.

      2. Yes, I'm generating income, however my focus isn't completely on monetization because I already have online businesses (I use these videos to show what's working in those).

    Hi Mick;

    Thanks for the share. Your information is ALWAYS valuable (I have 2 of his courses and both are excellent).

    Do you personally know Tom Addams - Since both of you are in the UK, you might be neighbors. I see that he chimed in on an above post. Tom also does great stuff...and EXTREMELY funny.

    New mission.

    I've changed the title of this thread from 1,000 subscribers to 10,000 subscribers.

    Instead of creating a brand new thread I'd like to document my entire journey right here.

      Think about the growth for a moment... it took you how long to get the first 200? then we know it took you 5.5 months to get the next 800.. and then you crushed 200 in a single month. thats 20% overall growth in one month..and since you started this thread a 33% increase in growth month over month based on previous 5.5 months average.

      Thats Growth Man... thats SERIOUS growth

      This thread is a glaring example of what consistent work can do.. what the GRIND can do... its not filled with quirky growth hacks and other non sense that appears to be a short cut.... put in the work.. provide solid content, and GET RESULTS.

      Serious man.. Congrats so far - I cant say it enough this is just fun to watch when someone else does it! LOL

        Thank you

        Yup... The grind isn't glamorous, it's not something people want to hear, let alone buy - when the promise of instant money without any work is so prevalent.

  • Thanks so much for all the analytics and data mate. I'm trying to do the same (unfortunately I won't be able to create 100 videos in 100 days ) but this is a great motivation!

      That's brilliant to hear! Glad this is motivational for you, and I don't think the 100 videos in 100 days thing matters too much, as long as you're consistent.

        What are the lessons you learned about growing on YouTube, apart from consistency?

          Do more of what your audience wants.

          Sounds simple, but finding out what they want is difficult, it takes time and a lot of testing.

            Wouldn't simply asking them be quick and very informative?

              There's nobody to ask, in the beginning.

              We only find out what works retroactively once there's enough data. It's a pain in the arse.

                Then there's no one to give more of what they want, to. :-)

                Yeah. This doesn't sound like a very fruitful exercise.

                Still, isn't there a base set of what everyone wants that's subscribing to a channel on a specific topic. This can't be rocket science to ascertain. Isn't part of, "Knowing your audience and what they want," based around the audience you are working to attract.

                This seems to be a 'chicken or egg' conundrum. With that in mind, I congratulate you on whatever success you are having.

                BTW - you may not believe this, but I have watched many of your videos. (I have no life). You present yourself and your ideas, well. Lots of energy and enthusiasm. Good stuff.

                Cheers.
