Why we are writing about 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours?
Before we dive into what’s good and what’s not – let me tell you a short story of why we decided to write this article.
Another day at the office, spending my time researching info as I used to. Browsing groups on Reddit, Facebook, looking for topics for our youtube channels, and then I saw this:
This guy literally made my day. He is complaining about his channel. He made over 600 videos and got just 1200 hours of watch time and 132 subscribers. But the comments on this post just killed me. – When someone asked him what his niche is – he promptly answered, “making money online.”
How insane is that?
The guy wants to earn money, and he needs money really fast, and he is teaching other people on YouTube “how to make money.” This is the biggest mistake people make when starting a Youtube channel, which is why we are writing this article on how to get 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours!
What Do You need to know to achieve 1000 subsribers and 4000 watch hours faster?
The point I’m trying to deliver to you is this- You won’t be successful if you are making content about things you don’t quite understand. If you are going to make videos about making money online – you should have at least one of two requirements:
- You should have experience in the topics you are discussing. The viewers will be able to tell whether you have a good comprehension of the niche that your in. Otherwise, if you are not able to provide value to your audience, its not going to work.
- You have to research the topic that you are showing to your audience. – otherwise – it won’t work as well.
You see, we are online sellers – also known as eBay dropshippers for a long time now. We gathered so much experience from selling online on different marketplaces. We have come to notice that the algorithm of social media, marketplaces, or even google search engines no longer shows irrelevant content. All that those search engines are trying to push is the best results for the people looking for an answer or product.
These complex algorithms are able to determine whether you are a – content spammer, making a lot of un-useful content, or if it is unprofessional – not knowing what you are speaking about. There are a lot of factors in how Youtube algorithms determine which content makers are good or not, and this topic needs another article to be explained well.
Why are you struggling to achieve monetization requirements?
Youtube wants you to have 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours to prove that you are a good content creator. But that’s 1000 people that are following You.
At first glance, it may seem to be too difficult. Compared to Instagram – How many friends, or close friends do you have on Instagram with a profile with more than 1000 followers? But this is a bit of a different story – you see, Youtube subscribers are easy. You don’t even need to ask them to subscribe to your channel. People intuitively know that they need to subscribe to a channel if they feel the content provided is good. For many years, YouTube taught the audience to do this, so this is a kind of WELL-KNOWN thing to your viewer.
So 1000 subscribers are easy – produce informative and valuable content and they will be joining your army of followers. Value is the KEY and the only question you should ask yourself every time is – “what kind of value does my video provide”?
4000 watch hours is 240 000 Minutes
You can try to create clickbaity titles along with an eye-catching thumbnail. As those things really help you on your way to getting 1000 subscribers 4000 hours of watch time. However – it may also lead to really low retention when your viewers find out that you are tricking them. Super low retention will hide your video far away from your competitors. And this will cause “no impressions” and “no views” for you.
But don’t worry, I have prepared tips that will definitely help you collect watch hours much faster!
The very first thing you should do is stop creating too short of videos.
Unless your niche is really not difficult to understand, but – longer videos, usually between 6 to 12 minutes in the range perform much better than short videos in the ranges of let’s say 2 to 4 minutes.
This is not only because Youtube likes longer videos because of the additional ad space you provide. in addition – longer videos will be proof that you are very professional in the niche that you are targeting.
Imagine this scenario. You are a math professor and you need to shorten your lecture from 45 minutes in time to about 10 minutes. But since you are trying to really get your content across. And teach your audience, you can’t shorten the lecture too much. Because you are such an expert in your niche, and you have many things to say it can be almost impossible to shorten it to this extent. So if you are a professor and you are making only a 3-minute long video about your topic. You can only go over it in a very broad stroke. Unless you are in a very specific niche for example “how to create a Gmail account” or “How to register on Youtube” You should be targeting longer videos to really cover the subject matter.
Well written script will make things easier
The second very important thing is – to write a very good script.
Unless you are a professional speaker, You can not speak as fluently from your mind as you would when reading off a script.
And the most important thing in your script is the very first 30 seconds.
It’s called the “hook”. During the Hook, you have about 30 seconds to catch your audience’s attention and interest them to watch the entirety of your video.
It’s a psychological fact. People that watched 30 seconds or more – are more likely to watch the entirety of the video. This is because they pay the most attention to that very first 30 seconds. Then they will watch the video if it catches their attention. so In this way, you can collect 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours much faster!
So make sure you get the right hook for your video, otherwise, you may end up with pretty low retention rates.
And as we should all know by now- low retention videos are not going to be suggested to a broader audience. So stay professional, create a decent thumbnail, don’t be too clickbaity, and focus on the script and content you want to provide to all of your viewers.
Plan our your youtube content!
The best advice I can give You today is to plan out your content schedule and make it consistent. Upload the same amount of videos every single day, for example, a Wednesday or Sunday. Have your schedule set out in front of you. You do not want to quit after 5 or 10 videos that you’ve uploaded.
Youtube takes time to understand your audience well. Once youtube is able to determine that, you will start to receive even more views every single day! And the only thing holding you back is the quality of your content. Consistent uploading will help you to achieve 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours a lot faster!
As we have discussed in previous articles – Medium quality content is OKAY as long as you did your research, provided voice-over, and had good editing.
On average Youtube takes about 8 to 12 months to understand your niche and what kind of audience you have. They will then suggest your videos to similar people with the same behavior and interests. That’s how browsing history and cookies work!
I really think it’s more complicated than the cookies system but you have to try. Make and upload at least 50 medium to high-quality videos on Youtube in a specific niche and watch your growth.
And to be ultra, ultra-right – Youtube takes way less time to suggest your videos to others if you are focusing on the low competition niches. The keyword research tool that we use is in the description below- make sure to check it out.
Good luck with your youtube adventure!
