Hello @Ajifa,

The most basic strategies I can give is to be patient. Growing a channel takes time. Be persistent. Keep making videos and learn from each experience. Take your time. Creating content should be an enjoyable process, not a rushed one. Create content ppl want to see. It's OK to make content you like but take into account that audience you want your content for. Is it for you or someone else? When you watch someone else videos that you enjoy do you believe they created the content for you or for themselves? One extremely important part of good content is audio. The better the audio the better the chances the video will get more views. It takes time to become an adult, to earn a degree and even to learn to cook. This also applies to growing a channel. Persist, learn, adjust and repeat.

Definitely patience, but there are ways to engage with small youtubers through Facebook groups. Don't use the sub4sub groups through! They are spammy and will unsubscribe just as fast as they subscribe.

Ground Zero - Pick a Niche that you LOVE and stick to it!
1 - LEARN the SEO side of YouTube. The research, the tagging, how to write titles.
2 - LEARN how to create Awesome Thumbnails
3 - Be Consistent. Pick a Day, upload a Video Every Week on that Day. If you can handle 2-3 videos a week, do that! 1 = Slow growth
4 - Never Judge anything till you hit 100-120 Videos. You may be lucky and Pop before that, but the vast majority don't. I took off on Video 237! And Didn't really hit the levels I am now until Video 310 ish.
5 - Think about and get your Income streams in place early doors. Adsense can't happen until the 1000/4000...BUT Affiliates, Courses, Patreon CAN Happen NOW!!
6 - Get Started with Basic Equipment, then slowly upgrade. Camera, Audio, Lighting etc - Maybe even the PC you Edit on to make it faster.
7 - Constantly improve your Editing Skills.
8 - Vow to learn ONE new thing every week and execute it.
9 - Never compete with other Channels....ONLY YOURSELF!
10 - Be EPIC on Camera! Make every Video appearance better than the last. Improve your confidence week on week
11 - DON'T GIVE UP

This is not a 10 day, 2 month, 8 months, 18 months quick win. A lot of us will have been at it years. This is year 4 for me. I love it now as much as I did 3 years ago. Am I huge??! NOPE. 4000k Subs, 30,000 Views a Week. BUT... I know I get more views a week than some channels who are still uploading now that have 50,000 Subs!! And I know I make a damn sight more £££ ROI than them too because my income streams were in place long before I was monetised! I now have a 18-month goal to be Full Time on YouTube....i set my sights on December 2021 to close my main Business. But with hard work, I think that could actually happen a year Early! Still with less than 10,000 Subs! VANITY is INSANITY. The ONLY thing that matters is getting the Views. Not Sub Counts!
