Hey there Wealthy Affiliate mates, just a quick update on my YouTube channel.

For those interested in my journey from the beginning here are the links below.

On my last post which was my 1-month anniversary on YouTube I had 47,500 views, 333 watch-time hours, and 109 subscribers.

During my second month everything almost come to a standstill, and I think it may have been that I wondered off my niche, became a little lazy with keyword research, and probably dropped my overall quality a little.

During the month of May my views stayed around the same at 25K, but what I did like was my watch time hours increased by 14% and my subscribers by 103%.

I think the reason for this was two-fold. Firstly, I went back to what I was doing when I first started this channel (keyword research, quality etc. etc.) and secondly, I started to produce a few longer form videos.

So, after 3 months, while I am not breaking any viral records, I am learning so much about YouTube and how to get at least some views :)

Below is my 3-month stats (The life of my channel to date).

102K views, 707 watch time hours and 210 subscribers.

I still have a way to go to reach my 6-month goal of 500 subscribers and 250K views but know if I stick to what I have been taught here at Wealthy Affiliate it will come.

Wishing everyone an awesome week!

Mark

Good morning Mark,

It's good to know that you are still going strong with your YouTube channel. I think the main thing is to just keep persevering and moving forward. I'm told that YouTube gives new channels a bit of a head start! I think this is probably to help new YouTube channels move forward.

It's good that you have a target to reach, that helps to keep the motivation going and something to reach for. I find with my main channel or the channel that I'm working on maybe at the moment, that it has spurts of growth and then slows down a bit. The main thing is that we keep going forward.

Have a great day.

Roy

Great words of encouragement Roy, and greatly appreciated🙂

It's a pleasure, Mark! It's always good to see members growing their business, whether it's on YouTube on my website.

Have a great weekend.

Roy

Great to hear how you are progressing eith this Mark.

So much of what we do is trial and error. Reflecting and learning ( or not) through that is what makes the difference!


It sounds like you are back on track and heading towards reaching your 6 month goals.

Wishing you continued success. Look forward to your next update.

Thanks Tracy. It is definitely an enjoyable adventure so far🙂

Very cool, Mark. My wife and I have a channel but we have neglected it for various reasons. You have inspired me.

Mark,

It looks like you must be doing something right! You are nearly half way to your subscriber goal which is awesome! You are also nearly half way with your views. This is pretty good for 3 months in. Keep on track with your niche and with your quality videos and you can reach your goals!

Take care and more success to you! (What you have accomplished in 3 months is success!)

Karin

Thanks for that Karin, and yes will definitely be focusing on continuing to improve the quality🙂

Pretty awesome, Mark!

Jeff

Cheers Jeff
