It’s not that they don’t want to put in the work, but they are hit with a case of procrastination. People know what they need to do & have the capacity to do it, but they cant.
So how do you overcome this? Easy, follow the steps listed below.
Before you start to execute your video uploading plan, we highly recommend that you post 1-2 videos of you showing your face on camera introducing who you are and the purpose of your YouTube channel.
This will make executing your plan a lot easier. This will increase the odds of you actually having a successful personal brand channel on YouTube.
Once you have a solid fanbase of at least 1,000 subscribers, you can now start collaborating with other creators. Do not collaborate with others for the purpose of getting more ad revenue. You want to collaborate with others to build your YouTube network. This will come in handy for future opportunities in the future
After building my own personal brand & helping others do the same the number one thing that separates the successful personal brands on YouTubefrom everyone else is persistence. Just by showing up every day, increases the odds of scoring a viral video which is critical for growing your personal brand on YouTube exponentially.
