Tom Martin and Carlos Pacheco are the hosts of The Video Insiders Podcast, sharing the strategies and tactics for successfully managing your YouTube channel. Tom is also the Founder & CEO of Channel Fuel, a YouTube consultancy and channel management firm. Prior to Channel Fuel, Tom worked as a Sr. YouTube Channel Manager at BBC Worldwide and the Head of Audience Development for Endemol Shine.
Carlos is a Partner and Chief Operating Officer at Truly, a social agency that specializes in brand publishing programs, growing customer communities, and amplifying word of mouth.

In this episode, Tom and Carlos share their expertise for how to grow your YouTube audience. Carlos encourages creators and publishers to focus on content that serves their community while Tom explains that the key to YouTube channel growth is consistency: creating consistent content, publishing on a consistent schedule, and consistently optimizing your video metadata. We also discuss key differences between social platforms, most of which operate as closed ecosystems and favor bespoke content created specifically for their platform. Finally, we consider the future of Tik Tok, which seems like more of a fun place for creators than a premium destination for brands, and discuss what’s coming next for live streaming, with Tom arguing that Twitch will continue to dominate while YouTube occupies a distant second place.
