3 SIMPLE Steps to Grow a YouTube Channel

Last Update: July 26, 2021

3 STEPS how I build a successful channel with over 102,000 YouTube subscribers:

  1. Publish videos
  2. Analyze what works
  3. Improve constantly

Let's go through each point one by one.

1) PUBLISH Videos

I know many people who have talked for years about starting a YouTube channel but they never publish the first video.

Once you publish your first video, you’ll be 1,000 steps ahead of those who never even start.

Remember: You can do this step for 100% FREE. You can start for 100% FREE like I started.

If you wanna succeed on YouTube, you MUST start. You MUST publish your first videos. Every single video that you publish, increases your chances of success.

Let's think this through an analogy of a coin flip.

Think that each YouTube video that you publish is like flipping a coin. And your goal is to become viral.

If you flip a coin once, your chances of success are 50%.

If you flip it twice, your chances of success are 75%.

Thrice => 87,5%

6 times => 98.44%

10 times => 99,90%

20 times => 99,9999%


In the same way, your chances of success go higher when you keep on publishing more videos.

In the other words, your success will become inevitable over time..

2) ANALYZE What Works

Sometimes people tell me…“Hey Roope, I’ve already published 10 or 20 videos but I didn’t become successful. I think YouTube isn’t for me.”

20 videos is a good start but it’s NOT ENOUGH if you want to succeed on YouTube.

Channels that have over 1,000,000 subscribers have on average over 3,800 published videos.

If you want to have, for example, 10,000 - 100,000 subscribers, you’ll have on average over 400 videos published!

Now that you have 20 videos published, it’s time to ANALYZE WHAT WORKS!

YouTube makes things pretty easy for you.

Once you publish videos, it SHOWS you what works and what doesn’t work. You don’t need to guess.

You’ll see it with your own eyes on YouTube Analytics.

Let’s say that you publish 10 videos.

=> YouTube shows what works the best.

=> Do more of what works.

=> Do less of what doesn’t work.

YouTube gives you so much data.

It tells you how to get more views, more subscribers, earn more money, have a bigger impact & much more!

3) IMPROVE Constantly

Everyone starts their career from 0.

Nobody’s perfect.

The difference between successful people and those who fail is that successful people keep on improving consistently.

Your YouTube channel will never be 100% ready. Never.

There will always be room for improvement.

And that’s what makes it so exciting.

Every single day you can feel a sense of progress and fulfillment. All the time when I publish more videos, I am able to create BETTER videos because I get more data.

Here’s my goal for you:

Your next 20 videos will be better than your first 20.

Then your next 20 videos will be then your previous 20.

And so on…

I hope you enjoyed!

Thanks for this article Roope. Youtube is something i have been doing for years, yet only really starting to pay attention on how to do it properly.
the problem i have is that i used to actually make a decent bit of cash from it. Not enough to go cancelling the day job for but the odd £20 or £30 here and there.by uploading videos of me playing guitar, which i still do.
Then they brought in the minimal requirements as they obviously don't need the little people anymore now that their empires built.
So, i still need to get more subscribers before i can monetise again.
Recently i have been making tutorial videos to go with my 'Make money online' website. But so that i dont need to start a new account and start off with a following of zero, i have just added these tutorials to my existing account which I still also use to upload music videos of me playing guitar.
Do you think this is a good idea? Or should I make separate channels?

I have been doing #2 lately. I am looking at hiring a fiverr gig to do short videos while I learn the process myself, I understand short videos are great for local lead generation. Will update on how this goes, might take a few weeks though

Thanks for the lessons Roope 🌞 👍

That's pretty interesting, Roope
Statistics can't lie
It is really encouraging that there are no guesses whether or not what you are doing works
Thank you for your detailed explanation
