There is nothing more satisfying than hitting a follower milestone with your YouTube channel – be it your first 100 subscribers or your first 1000. But your first hundred is very important, because it will enable you to make live-streaming videos.

These 7 easy steps will help you achieve this goal and make it easier to manage your videos.

  1. Post useful and creative content. Something that’s simple and difficult at the same time. You might say that this is easier said than done. And we won’t argue with you – with 1000 minutes of videos uploaded every minute, it’s hard to find something new. But you don’t need to do new things. You can be out of the box using popular topics, as long as you have a bit of creativity.
  2. Give your titles a theme. Sometimes it’s hard to give your video a good name. Even if you have tons of ideas for a title, it’s hard to pick the perfect one. You can ease this burden by having title themes. Giving your titles a common theme will make your videos more recognizable, organized, and searchable. This can be as simple as adding your profile name to each video. Or you can group your videos into different categories, and add the theme to each title.
  3. Design, design and once more: design. Perception creates reality, especially in the eyes of your audience. That’s why your channel’s design should tell people who you are as a business and how you run it. Your design should reflect your business accurately so you’re desired audience feels at home on your channel.
  4. Thumbs up, Thumbnails! Custom thumbnails? Yes, please. It will increase your video’s visibility and make your videos more recognizable. You can also add some text on it, to describe your videos.
  5. Ask for likes. This is really simple. At the end of your videos, ask people to like your video or subscribe to your channel. People often to forget to like videos. But if they enjoyed your video while watching, a reminder to like it can make a big difference. But don’t over do it. Asking with too many widgets, buttons, and links is annoying.
  6. Shoot in various places. Unless you’re running a regular video series, adding variety to your local is a great idea. No one wants to see the same background on every video. Go outside, go to a friend’s house, check out the office’s basement. A little variety can go a long way to making your videos more appealing.
  7. Be realistic. Don’t pretend to be something you’re not. Be yourself. If your office is messy and hectic, don’t be afraid to show it off. People want to real you, that’s what social media is all about. If you pretend, subscribers will be calling phony from miles away.
