My First 1,000 YouTube Subscribers!

Last Update: May 14, 2019

Hi Gang, how are you all doing?

Those of you who know and follow me will have noticed that I've not been very active in the WA community for the last few months.

This is because I've been taking some time out from my coaching business and rebuilding my website and homepage to reflect my new direction.

I've decided to go back to my musical roots, dust off my old guitar and focus on recording and uploading some acoustic guitar covers to my YouTube channel.

I've actually had the channel for a few years but never done anything with it up until now but I'm really enjoying myself getting back into my old passion of playing guitar and singing so I'm changing direction completely and focusing on my passion niche for the foreseeable future.

My first goal is to get 1,000 YouTube subscibers by the end of the year.

At the time of writing this I have 26 subscribers and two of them are my daughters so I have a long way to go! :D

I will not be doing any of the "Follow me, Follow you" Twitter/Instagram tricks I'm just going to focus on uploading popular English and Spanish acoustic guitar cover songs along with a few guitar product reviews like strings and amplifiers on a weekly basis and hopefully grow my following organically.

I do have one little trick for boosting YouTube subscribers that I'm testing at the moment.

I'll let you know if it works in a future blog.

I'll be documenting my progress here every month and let you all know how I'm getting on and share what's working and what isn't.

If anyone else is just starting out on YouTube or already has an established YT channel and is getting regular views and subscribers please share your experience and any tips you have in the comments section below I'm sure there are plenty of people in the community here who would love to build their YouTube channels as well so maybe we can all help each other.

In an effort to stay within the rules and regulations of blogging at WA and not get myself banned I haven't posted the link to my YouTube channel here in this blog but if anyone wants to check it out and maybe subscribe you can find the link bottom right of my profile page where it says " Follow Me On:" (It's the second link right under my new website link)

That's it for this week I just wanted to let everyone know where I've been and what I've been up to for the last few months.

Catch you all in live chat again soon

Alan :)

P.S. I think you need to be following me here at WA to be able to see my website and YouTube channel links on my profile.

WOW. I just checked out your channel. Very promising indeed. I like anything about guitar music. I'm probably going to do some music later on in my life.
