What is it like to have over 50K YouTube subscribers

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to have 50,000 subscribers on your youtube channel?

I found a first-hand answer from Quora and it’s not what I expected.

The number 50K is meaningless!

Jorg Sprave says these numbers get meaningless after a while. 50k, 500k, 2 million… it simply means lots of people.

The fact that someone subscribes does not mean he or she will watch every video you upload.

Youtube no longer favors individual creators. They prefer to recommend Will Smith, CNN and the likes.

Strive to have more real subscribers

To succeed as a Youtuber, we have to strive to have more REAL loyal subscribers by doing the following.

  1. Interact with your audience.
  2. Spend 2 hours responding to comments, deleting trolls, and building list of blacklist bad words.
  3. Upload frequently.


Now I know what having real subscribers means And what I have to do to keep them happy.

At the same time make money from YouTube ads, affiliate products, and own books/courses.

First 3 things that came to mind is...

2. Google+ Hangouts On Air with YouTube Live.
