How To Get Your First 100 Subscribers On YouTube In 2017

So, you have decided to start your own YouTube channel and are looking to get your first 100 subscribers. Unfortunately, there is a lot of terrible information out there about how to get your first 100 or 1000 subscribers. Some of them honestly made me laugh. How to get 100 subscribers in a day? How to get 1000 subscribers in a week? Come on now. Let’s be realistic. Those numbers are insane. It is uncommon for someone to even get 100 subscribers in a week without a high traffic video, let alone 100 subscribers in a day.

That being said, if you are looking for a realistic approach on how to grow your audience on YouTube this is the video for you. The first thing I want to mention is this; getting your first 100 subscribers will likely be the biggest challenge you face as a youtuber, but don’t give up! Once you get 100, you can easily get 1,000. And once you get 1,000 the snowball effect takes place and you begin to grow exponentially.

I posted my first video on October 17th 2016. Here is how many subscribers I gained in that week and the following weeks…

Week 1: 25 Subscribers
Week 2: 14 Subscribers
Week 3: 10 Subscribers
Week 4: 4 Subscribers
Week 5: 13 Subscribers
Week 6: 13 Subscribers
Week 7: 33 Subscribers

Between week 6 and 7 I hit 100 subscribers. Notice how I was in a downtrend from week 1 to 4 after the initial excitement the first week when I got all my friends and family watching my videos. After week 4, things picked up nicely. It took roughly 50 days to get my first 100 subscribers at an average of 2 new subscribers a day. This is as realistic as it gets.

If this sounds like a lot of work, that’s because it is. At first it was hard to stay motivated, especially around week 4! But as you can see slow progress over time adds up. Stay motivated. Keep pushing. Anyone can become successful on YouTube.

How to Get your First 100 Subscribers on YouTube:
1. Post about your channel on your personal social media accounts.
2. Directly ask your friends and family to subscribe and share the videos you make with their friends.
3. Follow people on twitter who may be interested in your content and direct message them asking for feedback.
4. Look for forums related to your channel and add value.
5. Find Facebook groups related to your channel and add value.
6. Guest post on blogs related to your channel.
7. Add a call to action to all videos, use end cards too.
8. Add a channel trailer.

Things to avoid…
Sub4Sub, Buying Subscribers, Reddit, Blatant Self Promotion, Begging for Subscribers, Collaborations

About Me:
My name is Ryan Scribner. I am a nutrition and fitness crusader and I consider myself to be a life student of personal development. I am also an investor. I went from being an overweight college student to living at 8% body fat. About two years ago when I started weight lifting, I was completely clueless. I never played sports in high school and I had no base level of fitness established. I made many mistakes, but over time I developed an understanding. I want to help others develop the body, spirit and mind they deserve. In making mistakes along the way and learning from scratch, I have a lot of value to bring to the table. I recommend my content to those interested in the accumulation of wealth, fitness and nutrition as well as personal growth and development. Recently, I made my own happiness a priority after living with depression for over a year. I want to share with you exactly what I did to get to a state of perpetual lasting happiness. I have also spent a great deal of time learning about investment and wealth accumulation. While money alone doesn’t bring happiness, it allows you to experience many things which do bring happiness. Start the journey. Involve the right mentors and coaches. Learn.
