Is Creating a YouTube Channel a Waste of Time? [First 100 Subs]

Last Update: August 19, 2019

Hello dear WA Friends

Hope you are all doing well and achieving amazing results. And if not achieving results immediately, I do hope you are taking action every day, because that is what is going to get you results soon. :)

Now, I haven't been blogging here for a while (I shall endevour to change that) because I've been busy in improving my online marketing skills on other platforms and doing new and exciting stuff. In fact, I've been working harder than ever on getting my 'game' where it needs to be.

I've fallen behind on writing blogs for my SAC but haven't stopped creating content.

Which brings me on today's subject of my blog: YouTube!

First 100 Subscribers!

I'm happy to report, as of yesterday I have my first 100 subscribers on YouTube. I've created over 50 videos and it's been an amazing experience finding a medium that I find easy to do, as opposed to writing that I've struggled with so much over the past year and a half.

This is not to say I'll stop writing for my blog. Not at all.

Just that I'm very happy I've found a platform where I'm slowly but surely finding my voice in a way that is not stressing me out as much as writing blogs.

The videos on my channel are getting some decent number views, but this is something I need to work on and improve.

Also, I'm getting more and more people signing up for my email list and clicks on the affiliate links as well.

All in all, YouTube ROCKS!

Have You Started Your Own YouTube Channel Yet?

I'd like to help you in this, if you haven't started as yet: I'm going to create a course for YouTube beginners and would like to ask you what sort of stuff would you like me to cover?

What are the specific questions you'd like me to answer?

What is stopping you from making your first video?

Have you started your YT Channel and then abandoned it? Why did you stop?


This is going to be an indepth training so your input means a lot!

Thank you :) :)


Have a great day!

Alenka :)

Thanks Alenka! This is very encouraging.
I've just started my Youtube channel few days ago and this is definitely a breakthough experience for me. I am struggling to get the subscribers and also how to rank high in Youtube. If you can also let me know where do you find the youtube keyword rank would be helpful! (I think youtube search is different from noraml website keywords tool)

Thanks and all the best!

Hi, Lin

Great questions, will include those in the course. Thanks.

Congratulations on starting your YT Channel! Just be consistent and patient. It might take a bit of time, but it's so worth it. :)

Send me your YT Channel link via PM and I'll subscribe :).

Best,
Alenka

Hi Alenka, I 'd be up for some training, definitely. I am an expert in 'YouTube Procrastination'
I always wonder if it is best to have a 'script' or just a few notes and then expand as the video progresses. Voiceover with images or 'sat in front of your computer'
How long is the optimum length ?
Those are just off the top of my head, it is something I keep thinking about doing

Thank you!

I started with Screencast-o-Matic, but as of recently I've switched to OBS.

Do you have your YT Channel?

Yes I do and I use Screencast-O Matic but I noticed how crystal clear your videos were, really nice:-)

Thanks for the post.
My biggest obstacle is being in front of the lens... I video YouTube vids for my wife and edit them for her.
As a photographer I am more comfortable behind the camera.
I would not say I am shy, or retiring but the thought of talking on camera sends shivers down my spine.

Just my thoughts
Cheers

Hello!
Well, lucky your wife to have you to do all the filming and editing.
Yes, I can totally relate to being scared of talking to the camera. It's something I had to work on a lot. In fact, I'm learning with every new video I do.
I've just started doing FB Live every day.. wow, that's an interesting experience as well. Scary, but slowly I'm getting the hang of it (or at least, I'd like to think so...).

Best,
Alenka
