When I started doing YouTube I expected a slow but linear growth of my channel. My idea was to put out a lot of videos to build a big subscriber base. The more subscribers I’d have, the more they would help me to promote my videos.
Based on my observations of other people’s channels, I would probably need at least 200 videos to get to 60,000 views/month (with each video getting 300 views per month) and I was willing to put in that work. Fast forward a year later and my channel gets about 100,000 views/month. That is about 166% more than I was hoping for and 500% of what I’d had. Did it take me 200+ videos to get there? Not exactly. How many did it take? 6.
