Do you have a YouTube channel but are having a hard time getting views & subscribers? You are not alone. A lot of other YouTube creators struggle with this same issue too & no one is sure how to fix this problem on a predictable basis.
In this article, we are going to show you how to grow a YouTube channel fast by taking advantage of trends.
Why do we love trends so much here at Trend Watchers?
Well, if you get into a trend early enough, there will be less competition for it. Less competition means, your video will rank high in YouTube search for that keyword.
Once the trend starts to blow up, your video will still be on the front page for that particular keyword bringing your channel lots of views & subscribers in the short term.
Here go a image of what we strive to achieve here at Trend Watchers
In this article, we are going to show you how you can do this with your channel by covering 4 main topics.
- Picking your niche
- Creating systems to tests trends
- Creating an uploading schedule
- Growing your channel exponentially.
Picking Your Niche
Before you start taking advantage of trends, you need to double down on one niche first.
This is important because not only will it help you find trends a lot easier but it will make retaining new subscribers a breeze.
If you already have your channel niche established, feel free to skip this step. if not, please complete the exercise below.
Make a list of 5 – 7 niches you would love to make Youtube videos about. Next scratch off these items until you are left with exactly 3 choices.
Next, read these questions and pick the niche that bests answers them all.
Are more than 1,000,000 people interested in this?
Am I very knowledgable in this subject? Do I know the good, bad, and ugly of this niche?
I am willing to sacrifice some sleep to create videos within this niche.
Once you have a niche figured out, you are ready to move to the next step.
Creating Systems To Tests Trends
Now that you have your niche figured out, we can start building systems. When you look at all major YouTube channels, they all have systems in place. These systems are also known as video series in our books. Here go an example below
Video series allow you to post video in mass, without losing video quality. This is an absolute key, if you are looking to grow a YouTube channel fast.
Creating a video series system is easy. First take a few minutes to brainstorm 2-3 video series ideas as shown above but within your niche. These video series should be focused around things you love to do, that your audience will watch.
The reason why video series work so well is because you can make the subject of the video around a particular trend without changing too much of the video structure.
Here go an example
As you can see, Jubilee uses different stereotypical trends but maintains a video structure to make things easier to manage & post. The reason why you want your subjects to be focused on a trend is because that will increase the odds of one of your videos going viral. The video series, allows you to do this on a larger scale, exponentially increasing your chances of a viral video.
Creating An Uploading Schedule
Now that you have a basic plan of how to grow your YouTube channel fast, its now time to make it into a gameplan we can execute on.
The easiest way to do this is to pick 2-3 days out of a week to set aside some time for YouTube.
Next you want to assign your video series video ideas on these days. Keep doing this until you have at least 1 month worth of content planned out in advance. It should look something like this
Growing Your Channel Exponentially.
After your video uploading schedule is complete & ready to execute on, the only thing separating you from your actions is some action.
It takes at least 15 – 30 videos to start seeing results over time which is why we had you plan out content for at least one month. This will allow you to push out enough content to where something could go viral within the next 1-3 months. Those that post less than 15 videos, usually see little to no results.
