Welcome to the first Get Youtube Subscribers series.
What is Get Youtube Subscribers series you ask?
Get Youtube Subscribers series is the first of several social media series that I’ll be launching in the coming future.
The goal of this Get Youtube Subscribers series, or other social media series is to create REAL life case studies and show you what I did to get to those numbers or reach a goal that I’ve set.
You’ll read about my successes and failures (which I assume would be plenty).
I’ll be testing all the tip and tricks recommend by YOU or through my research in hope it will inspire you to reach your goal.
What you’re reading right now will be the first installment on the many proven ways on how to get more subscribers on youtube.
Get Youtube Subscribers Series: Part 1 Your first 100 youtube subscribers
The Beg Method
Yup! The Beg Method is what I’m calling it because it’s exactly that
To get your first 100 youtube subscriber. You need to beg for it.
Before we start BEGGING for subscribers.
Here’s what you need.
1. Fill up all the details
Make sure you have a photo, channel description and photo are completely ready. If you do, move onto the next step.
2. Post a few videos before begging
Instead of telling everyone to just subscribe to your channel. You need to have a few videos already on your channel.
You need to have a few videos uploaded before you start asking people to subscribe to your youtube channel. Those videos give an idea of what your channel is about.
If you don’t have a few videos up, you can create a channel intro to share what you channel will be.
If you’re looking for a decent camera, you can purchase the Canon G7X. It’s what I use. It’s a beginner point and shoot that is able to capture decent quality pictures and videos. That’s what I use for my videos. It works, it’s affordable, and it’s what most youtube vloggers use. It’s a good vlogging camera.
You can purchase it here
If you don’t want to buy anything, then use the camera that you already have. An iPhone can also capture videos that are amazing in quality.
What I did.
When I first launched my channel. I didn’t tell anyone about it. I simply recorded videos using my Canon G7X, edited it quickly and uploaded it to youtube then shared it. I wanted to get some views before asking my friends and family to subscribe to my channel. That way it looked legit and showed that I was serious.
Asking people to subscribe to an empty channel is like asking someone to enter a restaurant that isn’t ready.
3. Start begging
Time to start begging aka asking nicely. Ask a few close friends of yours to subscribe to your channel. The first person I invited to subscribe to mine was my girlfriend. She didn’t have a choice. Poor girl.
After that, I started to ask a few close friends to subscribe. That got me my first 20 youtube subscribers within the first few days.
From 20, I posted a tweet on Twitter and posted it on all my other social media channels. The 20 subscribers gave me some social proof leverage to get others to subscribe to my channel. After all, people won’t subscribe to a channel with only ONE subscriber.
4. Use visuals
I used Canva, designed a simple image like this to attract attention.
I added a little humor, so it won’t look like I was forcing people to subscribe. I asked nicely. People were kind enough to subscribe.
5. Pin your post on Twitter
If you’re active on Twitter, don’t forget to pin your post. Pinning your post gives it more exposure and can help you get more impressions on that tweet that will convert to subscribers.
Pro tip: To take it to the next level, give a reason to why people should subscribe.
