I'm starting from scratch literally and I don't know how to proceed from here. So how do I grow my channel daily and consistently?

There are many different techniques to increase your chances of getting more views and subscribers but from what I've learned from much more experienced YouTubers, it all starts with putting out consistent somewhat frequent quality content, so Youtube can gather data about your channel and eventually start recommending your videos to the best viewers who would likely appreciate it. Beyond that, of course, there is using TubeBuddy to try to get your Tags to rank well in search, and the using those keywords in your Title, Description, and to actually say them during natural conversation in your videos.

This is very helpful information, thank you! I still have to learn more about the Tags and Keyword search but I guess that's why I'm here. I didn't even know a suitable title for my first video honestly but I hope to ask more questions. Thanks for the help!

Go to a few similar channels to yours and leave comments or questions..
This could raise interest from the viewers of the other channels and they may come across to yours too..

That makes so much sense! I thought of that even before I joined TubeBuddy but I disposed of the idea. Hearing it from another person is very useful and a step in the right direction. Thank you.

Hi , Yes I agree with all the suggestions above, I went over to check out your channel, We have a similar niche as (I have various niches)I would have actually subscribed but your comments are switched off so I won't be able to leave a comment. You have a lovely voice too. Have a look at my channel if you would like to and watch my video on reaching 1000 subscribers and today's video on Engagement however there are so many other videos and channels dedicated to this information and you learn more tips daily. I am going to have look at @MyBlocksStrongestMan playlist also. I have just started live streams too. I think the first thing though is to gain as much information as possible and ask as many questions. Trawl through this Forum, the good thing about this Forum is that their creators just like you and me starting out and bigger creators with so much experience are willing to support your journey. It will take time to make sense but keep researching and learning. Above all don't give up

I have rectified my comments settings so you can now comment and thank you so much! I watched your video on how to gain 1000 subscribers and the one about community engagement and they were absolutely fantastic and helpful too. I also checked out some videos on @MyBlocksStrongestMan playlist too, great content! I'm gathering as much information as possible and all of you guys here on TubeBuddy are incredible. "Don't give up" that in itself is probably the biggest advice that can be given to a YT newbie, patience is very much needed in attaining growth, so thanks!

In this situation, I really do think Roberto's mantra of "make 100 videos" applies. Because during that 100 videos you will gradually gain knowledge on what you should and shouldn't be doing. It all takes time.

Remember this... someone has to FIND your video (seo) then someone has to want to CLICK your video. To click your video, the topic has to be interesting to your target audience (you really should have a target audience in mind) and the topic has to be interesting in form of a clickable title that both answers a question and asks a question in one... what is the video about, but what will the audience get?

the second part of the click is the thumbnail. Thumbnails are more subjective... I've seen very "Bad" design get high click through rates, and arguable pleasing thumbnails get next to no clicks... BUT at the core you want to know some basic design principles such as typography, contrast, colour theory, heirachy, how to draw the eye to your thumbnail, how to make your thumbnail interesting without being too cluttered. It's a fine line between being attention grabbing, and being a visual mess that detracts away and is a skill that takes just as long to master as learning good seo.

At the end of the day though, it's hard to get views and subscribers if no one is clicking... so you have to get the click, and that comes from being searchable, being interesting (in topic), and being visually appealing graphically in your thumbnail.

Oh I really appreciate this. I will begin checking out your listed links immediately. Thank you for the advice.

Upload lots of more videos, thumbnails, get the click, honestly, this is all so helpful. I will look over it again from time to time to make sure I am doing it right. Thank you.

So many ways to do that one. . Changing ur tags, promotion, using seo, using unique title, different description , etc. .. .
All these are tips surrounding building videos before and after uploading to attain maximum growth. So helpful, thank you.

Since everyone has covered the things I would suggest, I'm going to add - don't forget to have fun! I'm noticing with my videos that they come out so much better when I'm engaged with the content and excited to make the video. Best of luck!

I see what you mean about having various niches on your channel and although we are typically advised to niche down, one of your niches got my attention and I subscribed! Looking forward to watching your videos!
