YouTube continues to be the second largest platform on the Internet after Google. The website gets over 30 million visitors per day. In an average month, 8 out of 10 18-49 year-olds watch videos on YouTube. If you are here because you are giving it a try at becoming a content creator on YouTube: Bravo! But you have chosen a really tough challenge and the road ahead of you is not going to be easy. According to statistics 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every MINUTE! Almost 5 billion videos are watched on YouTube every single day. When you think about it, you uploading a video on YouTube is figuratively like dropping a glass of water in the ocean. That’s why nearly every artist despite the fame they have they choose to invest on YouTube to even reach more people.
YouTube is the 2nd most-visited website in existence, according to Alexa. YouTube is a great platform that gives you a great opportunity to make a career as a content creator. The success of singers for example nowadays is measured with the amount of views they get on YouTube. Here’s an interesting fact: Even very popular singers buy YouTube views! Yes, that’s true… you may wonder why would they do that if they have a huge fan base, a strong label behind them and get millions of views. It’s because of YouTube’s algorithm. They surely get millions of views, but the more views they get within a short period of time the more chances of going higher in the trending section and getting recommended to more people worldwide. This is the reason why they buy views so it will mix with the real views they get and imagine the boost that video gets from Youtube’s algorithm.
That’s the beauty of YouTube… there’s never ‘enough attention’, you can always get more and more and more. Even popular singers compete with each other who’s getting more views because that means more fame, more attention, more money and more exposure on Internet. But the real problem is, the investment. We know that me and you who are reading this we don’t have the money singers have to invest on YouTube. That is totally understandable. But that shouldn’t stop us from investing in ourselves. We start with little investment and then we increase it slowly. Everything takes time and effort. It all matters how much we want it.
