2 Million Views on YouTube! Growth is ACCELERATING!
Today I just hit the milestone worth celebrating.
2,000,000 views! :)
And as always, I want to share some insights to help you to grow your YouTube channel and your online business.
Competition on YouTube Is GOOD!
If you are doing blogging and you want to get your ranked on top of Google under certain keywords, you'll prefer keywords that don't have so tough competition.
Now you might be thinking that the same applies to YouTube... But that's not what YouTube experts think! They're saying that competition on YouTube is a great thing. In fact, they say that you shouldn't create videos about topics where there isn't any competition.
For example, TechLead (almost 1 million YouTube subscribers) and Brian Dean (over 400,000 YouTube subscribers) who are both making millions say that you should create videos about the topics where is already competition.
I know that this sounds really counter-intuitive and I was also surprised when I heard it for the first time.
Having competition means at least a few things:
- If many people are creating videos about that topic and it's getting tons of views, it proves that there is a huge demand for these videos. People want to watch them!
- If you create a video about a trendy/competitive topic and your videos is shown in suggested videos, you're gonna get TONS OF VIEWS!
- When more people create videos about the topic that you are creating, it means that people are going to search more about it. The chances are that they'll land on your video too!
Exception to the Rule
Let's say that there is a keyword that many people are searching on YouTube.
You search that keyword and you notice that all top-5 videos under that keywords are getting tons of views.
However, you also notice that none of them is directly answering to that keyword. They're just somehow related but you notice that nobody specifically talks about the topic that people are looking for in their videos.
=> This is an opportunity for you!
Once you create a video about that topic, you're going to gather a lot of views for that video because people are searching for it and nobody else is answering people's questions.
However, expect that other people are going to create videos about the same topic once they realize it's getting tons of searches.
What Next? -> 100,000 YouTube Subscribers in 2021
I'm pretty confident that in 2021 my channel will reach 100,000 YouTube subscribers milestone. Then in the coming years we'll hit 1 million subscribers.
At some point, I'll probably want to create some coaching programs / courses where I'll help other YouTubers intensively to grow their channels too.
But for now I focus on growing my current channel rapidly. Since I've focused on it more this year, the growth of this YouTube channel is accelerating and most likely we'll reach 50,000 subscribers milestone before the end of this year.
