This can be the hardest of things to do (until you try and get 1000), but, to get your first 100 subscribers you need to do two things.
1. Produce good content
2. Connect with the others in your niche
But, there are other little things to do within these two, seemingly simple premises. Namely what is good content? Content is subjective, what one person likes another might not. What ten people love two people might not. I think the benchmark everyone should set for themselves is well… themselves.
If you can make content that you’re happy to watch then someone else will. Have a set of standards by which your videos don’t drop below and always be improving, finding new things to do and better ways to do them and you’ll always be evolving and never stagnate.
The second is connect with people within your niche. To accomplish this, find out where people who create similar content to you are online, for motovloggers it’s Twitter. For life vloggers it might be Facebook, for gamers it might be forums. Find where your audience is and dig yourself in.
Connect with others, not just by following them but by talking with them, messaging them (not spammy check out my channel shite), asking them questions and giving them answers. Find out about them and what they’re like, the different things they like. Make them your friends.
Once you do that eventually you will get over 100 subs. It might take two weeks it might take 3 months or more but if you focus on producing good quality content, putting it out regularly and connecting with like minded people, the subs will come. I have no doubt about it, it just requires something that is missing from a lot of people these days, patience.
