How to Get 100,000 views on Youtube!

Updated on March 20, 2013

Milestones on youtube don't always happen and when they do, they often times take time and dedication, unless you're a baby or cute cat! Reaching any type of milestone on youtube requires much effort on your part. Here are a few things to keep in mind:


1. Have Great Engaging Content

A college style lecture is probably not going to get millions of views or likes or anything else. Students taking the classes probably would not want to watch it! Keep this in mind before you hit the upload button. Make sure you like what you're putting up and you have an audience for it.


2. Be Consistent

You could have the greatest content but if people can't access new content regularly, you open the door for them to easily forget about you. This is probably one of the hardest things to do but it is something to strive for. Imagine Michael Jackson only putting out 1 album every 8 years...


3. Thank Your Viewers

No one has to watch your content, if they do they do it by choice! When someone comments on your videos, respond to them. This is after all still social media. People want to have a dialog, that's part of the point. You wouldn't ignore your friends when they talk to you so engage with your viewers. You'll like it anyway because they will likely like the things that you like.


4. Don't Give Up

Things will likely go slow in the beginning. Keep in mind that you are just starting. Everyone who is good and even great at something was once a beginner, making slow progress and improvements before they reached their goals. The same can happen to and for you, just hang in there!


If you have any other suggestions as there really are many, feel free to add them in the comments below.

      I had to come back myself, Ms. L, to hear and see your video here as my computer crashed , and now I am crashing in disbelief to your beautiful soulful voice - this is a real gem of a find - and yes Moonlake and I definitely have good taste.

      Also - You Tube is like a modern wonder of the world - and you my friend are wonderfully talented.

      Good evening Ms. L - not only are an astute business lady when it comes to the music industry but you also know how to promote one's talents as well. I can tell that all of these hubs here on your pages are a labor of love and from your beautiful creative heart. It looks so good on you and I wish you all of the best with both health and happiness.

      I once met Etta James back in the 80's with my buddy who was requesting her autograph on some of his vinyl (he was older than me and I was just discovering Etta's music for the first time) and she invited us into her dressing room in this small club in Toronto and what a grand lady she was and very nice to talk with.

      Sending you my warmest wishes from Colin (who is a big big music fan as well) and his cats, Tiffy and Gabriel , at lake erie time ontario canada 7:22pm and keep up the good work
