Yes, it's nice to know that the slow and steady wins the race - our channel is up by 3k views in 28 days and 54 subscribers in 28 days. But it's hard not to still feel frustrated, when we compare ourselves to like minded channels - we are producing much better videos than some of them....yet they already have 20K subscribers, over the same time period. It's baffling to us.

There are no easy answers. You will need to put in work. Make great videos, keep learning. Keep getting better. It may takes years. You must commit to practicing and perfecting your videos.

I use this as an example: Thundermist Lures has been making weekly fishing videos since 2007. They just hit 100,000 subscribers.

The Numbers
Do the math: 13 years. It took 13 years of producing one awesome fishing video per week. (fewer than that, but more on that later)
  • 1 video per week * 52 weeks per year = 52 videos per year.
  • 52 videos per year * 13 years = 676 videos.
If you click on the play all videos tab, you'll see 517 total videos. Get this: That's less than one video per week. Less than one video per week!

The Video Quality
The format is very much like most Saturday morning fishing T. V. shows. In fact his format has become simpler over time because he used to have segments and such. The video quality is "near" T. V. standard. It's clear that he has spent time understanding how motion picture works. If you watch your favorite shows and copy what you see them doing, you'll learn all you need.

The Thumbnails
Looks at them, they aren't that great. However they do one thing well, they show exactly what the video is about. The very fish he is targeting in the title is the very fish you see in the thumbnail. This way people know that he is on the water, as opposed to being in the shop. Thumbnails don't have to be glitzy, they have to communicate what the video is about.

The Keywords, Tags, Titles
From the looks of it he isn't doing keywords like you and me here on TubeBuddy, but he is ranking. Even though he isn't doing best practice, he still managed to get 100k subs!

The Business Model
It's impossible to know exactly the business model looking from the outside in, but as a fellow fishing tackle shop owner, his primary revenue is not the stupid ads. He has a real business that has made him revenue all these years. People get hung up on ads, and that's just extra money to buy ice cream. You have to build a real business in order to be successful on YouTube, imo. Very few of us will be able to make it on ad revenue alone. It takes a long time to makes significant ad revenue.

Use the ad revenue to plow back into business to make more business. Buy camera upgrades, maybe take a business class or buy some books on sales and marketing.

Take Away
  1. How long are you willing to stick with it?
  2. What is your business model?
(NOTE: The original post had errors in the math, but I corrected them. The numbers still come out the same, less than one video per week.)
Very encouraging and informative. It is so easy to get side tracked with how many subscribers we have as we see others that have been on as long as us. Thank you for sharing.

Lol I have heard larger YouTubers say the same thing. Not sure how that works but we will all get there, slow and steady, perseverance, hard work, time and energy, becoming a part of communities. You got this!

Ever since I have started this new series on my channel recently (within the past week) I have gotten close to 100 subscribers and each video I have posted in the series has gotten 1000+ views within the first day of being up (some of them got to 1000 views within the first HOUR of being up). Also the most viewed video in this series I have started is 3 days old and has nearly 10,000 views. I have also just reached 5,800 subscribers today. My channel seems to have started to grow faster and I have been on youtube for a few years now, so this goes to show that it can take a while to reach our goals but we should always keep going cause we'll all get there.

Thanks for sharing this. It’s tough doing something you put your creativity and your heart in to only get a few views over and over. Then you look at a channel like this and see the large view count and 100k subscribers and think I’m doing this! Sometimes even better. But it’s true, so true that consistency and patience can have strong payoffs. Thanks for this post.
