20,000 YouTube Subscribers REACHED! (25,000 in July?)
Happy July! 😊
Let's reach some new milestones in July, alright?
In this post, I'll share my recent milestone and thoughts. I hope this will enccourage you to work hard in July too.
At the beginning of June I said to myself that I wanna reach 20,000 YT subs before the month ends.
We made it! (if we look at the Hawaiian time zone :D)
25,000 YouTube Subsceibrs in July?
I'll reach for 25,000 YT subs within July.
You may be asking, "Why?"
The first answer is "Why not?" ;)
YouTube subscriber amount is often known as a "vanity metric" because it doesn't produce anything itself. However, that thinking is somewhat limited.
YT subs have value because:
- More subscribers
- => More views
- => More ad revenue + affiliate commissions
- => More people impacted!
In a nutshell,
The subscriber number is just one metric that usually brings lots of benefits along.
25,000 YT subs is just one of my goals among other ones.
More Subscribers => Bigger Impact
Even if views and other metrics don't turn into dollars, just being able to teach people important principles and steps itself has a big value.
Let me illustrate from another perspective.
I've learned a lot by watching other people's YouTube videos. And as you know, watching YouTube is 100% free. Many YouTubers haven't earned a single dollar even though they have taught me principles and steps through their videos that are worth a lot.
In the same way, many people may learn from my videos and that doesn't always translate into dollars. But that doesn't mean it wouldn't be valuable.
Personally, I think the most important thing in life is the impact that we can make on others during our lives because that's what remains here after we're gone. And YouTube offers a great platform for doing that.
YouTube is Fun!
When I create YouTube videos, most of the time it doesn't even feel like working because I just love the process.
That's one reason I think it's the right platform to focus on right now.
I mean... Why not do something that you love doing that can also give you great returns? :D
The worst scenario is that I just have a lot of fun during the process! The best scenario is that I have a lot of fun and get awesome results as well.
That's why I throw my
Do What You Love Doing
Steve Jobs said,
“You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do."
When you're an affiliate marketer, you don't only have "1 path to success". There are many things that you choose from:
- Any social media platform (Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, etc.)
- Paid advertising
- Etc. Etc.
The truth is that different personalities fit better for other platforms. Some people love writing more while others prefer doing videos.
I never realized that I'd enjoy doing videos so much until I started doing it more. So it may be also a good idea to try a few things and then stick to the one that you like the most.
The important thing is also to stay focused on 1 thing and not try to succeed on 10 thing sat the same time.
Alright, that's enough for today.
Have a great July!
It's Your Time!
