    The Growth Strategy That Earned Several Million Subscribers for These Channels [Ep. #227]

    The Growth Strategy That Earned Several Million Subscribers for These Channels [Ep. #227]

    When you're a smaller channel, you typically follow a growth strategy that focuses on search, keywords, and making the content as short and to-the-point as possible. While there's nothing wrong with that, you'll notice that many channels with several million subscribers do NOT do that. They're not focused on keywords and there's a lot of "unnecessary" fluff. Why?
    If you already have some traction on YouTube, but it feels too slow, today we want to share with you a different strategy for growth, one that more closely emulates what successful channels are doing.

    How Knowing your Perfect Viewer Leads to Millions More [feat. VidIQ] [Ep. #226]

    How Knowing your Perfect Viewer Leads to Millions More [feat. VidIQ] [Ep. #226]

    If you want to optimize your videos for growth, most people unfortunately focus primarily on the content itself: cool shots, fancy editing, and high energy. Those things can be nice, but they don't grow momentum on your channel as well as focusing on who the viewer is and what they want.
    Today, Liron from VidIQ joins us to talk through how we can get to know our target audience and its implications for how we craft videos that earn millions of views and subscribers.

    Optimizing YouTube's Ads to Make the Most Money [Ep. #225]

    Optimizing YouTube's Ads to Make the Most Money [Ep. #225]

    One creator asked us, "How do I optimize YouTube's ads to make the most money? Should I just select all the options and let YouTube pick? Should I disable certain ad formats and force others to run more? is there anything I can do to make more money from YouTube's ads on my videos?"
    Another creator asked us, "How do I double my channel growth with tips you've never shared?" This question usually presumes that they're doing everything we've already said, still aren't experiencing growth on their YouTube channel, and want the secret, next level tactics. While we love talking about the next level tactics, if you're not experiencing growth with the foundational principles, the advanced principles will not work.
    Today we answer audio questions from channel members about:
    - Optimizing YouTube's ads to make the most money.
    - Effectively using the community tab to drive more views.
    - Maintaining growth as "shelter in place" slows down.
    - When to test different title and thumbnail ideas.
    - Software for managing your copyright ownership on YouTube.
    - How to double channel growth with tips we've never shared.
    - And much more.

Thank You + YouTube Hashtag Question

Hi Tim! I wanted to just reach out and express my gratitude for the valuable content you are sharing with the world. Your podcasts are energizing and inspiring, as well as educational! That brings me to a big question I’ve been having that I can’t seem to find the answer to online anywhere! (read on...)

I have been sporadically posting videos to my YouTube channel since 2018 but decided to start taking it more seriously with my New Years Resolution to post one video every week (same day, same time). So far I have stuck to that, and now I am gearing up to increase my posting to 2-3 times per week (pushing for 3 times per week). I have done tons of studying through books, youtube videos, virtual trainings, podcasts, blogs, etc. because I understand that to truly grow online, and specifically YouTube, it’s so much more than just creating videos. I have learned a lot about the best practices regarding titles, thumbnails, keywords, tags, descriptions, etc., but one thing I just can’t seem to dig up much in the way of recent information on is YouTube HASHTAGS! Everything that pulls up on YouTube and Google is from around 2018, when the feature was new. I found one recent post (March 2020) on it, but we all know that the dynamic of the platform has changed a lot over the course of 2 years. Given the large output I am preparing to do (as a one-man-band, by the way), I want to know if YouTube hashtags are worth my time. I am trying to tackle my channel with “no stone left unturned” but my time is still limited, and if this is obsolete, I don’t want to waste time on it. If it is not, however, why are hashtags still helpful for search? What would be the best way to identify “optimized hashtags” today? I want to apply best practices, but I just can’t find anything current. )Apologies for the redundancy.)

I’d really love to hear your take on it as a current creator and YouTube expert I often learn from. I love that your answers to questions and lessons are always packed with not only actionable steps, but also with reasons behind it all and the value of each strategy. I’ve honestly been hesitant to post a question because I know you and your team are so successful that I fear it will get lost in the mix. But now I realize that you have given so much to me that it doesn’t entirely matter whether you do or don’t; you always come through with something valuable! Hope you get around to answering this question. Thanks again for everything you’re doing!

Holy Ears ,

Excellent!!

Tim is straightforward, knowledgeable, and professional. I am learning so much! It is challenging and intimidating sometimes but the facts I am learning are invaluable.
