15,000 YouTube Subs! DANGEROUS growth with views

Last Update: May 05, 2020

I feel pretty excited about YouTube now.

My channel getting more views than ever before...

  • 18,500 views in the last 7 days.
  • => Around 2,650 views per day.

And that has been rising fast during the last month since I've started publishing more.

Take a look at the chart below:

It's a part of a long-term chart but for me that looks DANGEROUSLY GOOD. hehe

Main factor for growth is that I changed from uploading 3 videos per week to 7 videos per week = every day.

In addition, I've got now videos recorded for the next 15 days already.

What I plan to do differently now?

My YouTube channel has had a following cycle:

  • I publish new videos regularly.
  • Views per day go up.
  • I hit new records.
  • ...
  • I start doing another project (outside of YouTube).
  • Views go down.
  • ...
    • I publish new videos regularly.
    • Views per day go up.
    • I hit new records.
    • ...
    • I start doing another project (outside of YouTube).
    • Views go down.
    • ...

Repeat...

Analysis from 2019

Last year views were quite high but I started planning and creating my Email Marketing Mastery course and didn't publish on YouTube since I was just recording videos for the course.

That dropped views to some of the lowest levels.

After the email marketing course was ready, I started publishing new videos again to YouTube and views started steadily going up.

Views went up all the way until November when I hit new records. Views were going higher than ever and I planned to continue.

Then I injured myself at the gym and had to take a surgery and that took obviously focus off from YouTube for a while.

Views went down again in December...

Then this year in 2020 they've started going up as I started uploading more again.

What Will I Do Now?

The views are going up again as you saw in the small chart above.

And because I have 15 new videos stacked up, they will most likely keep on going up.

My plan is now just to keep on stacking up those videos so I'll be able to publish one video per day.

If I start a new project, I won't let it this time take away the good streak on YouTube.

The only thing that can potentially take me away from publishing 1 video per day for now is probably getting coronavirus or some unexpected setback.

If the views keep on going up, I'll keep on publishing 1 new video per day forever. If the views plateau for a long time or even start going down, then I may stop posting daily.

Ads Are Disabled Now

I wanted to change the payment currency of my YouTube Ads.

That turned out to be harder than I thought.

It said that I had to delete my current Google AdSense account and create a new one. So I've deleted the old one and when I try to create a new one it says that I already have an account.

Then I chatted 1,5 hours with their support staff to try to move forward.

Now I'm waiting for their response for an email.

The ads are disabled since yesterday since I've deleted my previous account.

I hope to get ads back at some point but it is also interesting to see now what kind of effect it has on affiliate conversions and watchtime when there are no ads.

If the results without ads are good I may leave them away but my guess is that there is not much difference in conversions when comparing with/without ads.

But let's see how much it will take to get those ads back again. Knowing the level of support on YouTube/Google, it may take a while...

Quality or Quantity?

Endless dilemma.

Which one should you focus on?

Producting a lot of content even though the quality is not the highest or creating small amount of content but aiming for the highest quality?

Putting effort on quality should always be on a priority list but you still need to make a decision how much time you spend on each piece of content.

It keeps on amazing me that a video that I create in 1-2 hours may get 10 times better results than a video that I create in +5 hours.

Quality is a relative term to some extent.

For now, I've decided to end this dilemma in a following way:

Every week I'll create 3 videos that have a higher quality and I usually publish those on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The rest of the videos can also be great but I'll probably spend less time on creating them.

YouTube Course / Workshops

In one of my previous posts I mentioned that I'm planning to create YouTube workshops in the future.

Sooner or later I'll still create a course about making money on YouTube / host YouTube online workshops for small groups.

However, I decided to keep that idea still "on hold". At the moment, I prefer to focus on collecting more data and sharpen my skills with YouTube.

Now it's just exciting to see how high the views will rise when I keep on uploading daily.

Thank you for the interesting blog post Roope. I noticed that you've been publishing more recently as I am subscribed to your channel. Unfortunately, this time of year I don't get enough time to watch all your excellent videos.

As to regarding quality, it's good to bring good and real content which I know you do. However, I'm not sure in bringing the same content and yet making it really fancy will bring many more views. Or if it's actually worth the extra effort and time involved, just my theory!

YouTube started out as a website where you could just simply upload simple videos, obviously, it's changed a bit over the years. I have heard many people say that sometimes a video just made from your smart phone can be much more popular than a real fully professional video.

I definitely believe that publishing daily is the way forward.

Have a great day.

Hello Roope and well done growing your channel.
We have seen a similar thing with my wife's channel.
I would say that to focus on quality content rather than quantity is the best way to go. If you just put up videos for the sake of having something to post, people will eventually stop watching because there is no value.

Best wishes
