Okay, we have two recurring questions, so here are the answers!:
1. How do you get your channel/blog out there and gain subscribers?
This one is tough because there’s no ONE way to do this. All I can tell you is that CONSISTENT and PERSISTENT work is what will make your blog or channel grow. Upload consistently, at least once a week. Make your content GOOD, people will subscribe and come back. And make sure you’re vlogging about trending topics, subjects that are popular that you know people search for a lot. Other than that, you must be patient. It took me 2 years to get to this point. But what I can tell you is that as time goes on and you grow, the growth happens more quickly. It took me 6 months to get from 100k to 200k, and now it appears I’ll be at 300k in 3 months. So the growth happens exponentially faster as you grow bigger.
2. How can I use music in my videos and not get in trouble for copyright?
This one is very important because YouTube is VERY strict when it comes to copyright. Personally, I use music from audiomicro.com, which is a royalty free music library. But you can also use JewelBeat.com, which is another royalty free music library. You will have to pay for these tracks, though. If money is an issue, I have two suggestions: 1) You can download just one song and use the same intro to each of your videos, almost like the beginning of any TV show, it’s always the same intro. Otherwise, if you’d like to use different songs for your videos, try the YouTube music library. YouTube now has its own royalty free collection for people like you and me to use!
