YouTube is not just the most popular site for video content but also the most visited platform right after Google. This platform catches the attention of millions of U.S viewers of all ages.

With such a massive reach, it is no wonder why most millennials and generation z look at YouTube as a great place to start out. But with over 31 million channels out there and 500 hours of YouTube videos uploaded every minute, creating a successful channel appears to be a daunting task.

How To Consistently Grow Your Channel 

The first tip for growing a successful channel is to be consistent in your niche. It will help if you plan a schedule so that you are consistent with your videos and you’re able to upload at least two videos a week. Secondly, ensure that your content is high quality as the quality of the content remains the number one factor that will get you to increase your subscriber’s list. When people subscribe to your channel, then you have proof that viewers engage with your content. As such, you should continue creating quality content to build momentum. 

Mike encourages YouTubers or aspiring YouTubers to be authentic and as real as possible. People want to listen to someone open and honest. Lastly, market your channel via social media to attract more viewers and potential subscribers.
