I know how frustratingit could be when you have 0 views and 0 subscribers. Your youtube channel,you are getting started, no one knows who you are yet and what kind of content you produce. You spend all that time planningand scripting and filming and editing the videosand you're all excited. You upload to youtube,only a few people watch it. I remember back then when Ihad 0 views and 0 subscribers and I would upload avideo and I would wait and I would refresh a few times hopefully to get a few more views. So I know what it's like whenyou're starting from scratch. And I know a lot of myfans, that I inspire you to start your youtube channel. 

By the way, if you startyour youtube channel because of following my work,comment below and let me know. I might just check outyour youtube channel. So how do you grow with 0views and 0 subscribers? See, in the publishing world,I've done a number of books and there's a joke that we talk about in the publishing world. Well, how do you becomea best-selling author? Well, it's easy to becomea best-selling author if you already have a best-seller, right? So meaning it's easy togrow your youtube channel if your youtube channel alreadyhas a lot of subscribers, and also you're already famous. Then it's easy for your videosto go viral or to get more views and get more eyeballswhen you already have a big youtube channel. But what do you do if you'restarting from scratch? So today I'm gonna share5 secrets with you. 

If I were to start all overagain, growing with 0 views and 0 subscribers, what arethe 5 things that I would do? So make sure you stay until the very end. I'm gonna share one secretwith you that will explode your subscribers and explodeyour views, are you ready? Let's go. YouTube secret number one. Hey Jarvis, do you rememberwhat secret number one is? I believe it's use compelling titles, sir. Right, use compelling titles. You don't want to be boring. One of the biggest sins youcould commit as a YouTubers is to have boring titles. Yes I know, there are YouTubersout there that they have boring titles and yet theystill have millions and millions of followers, if you are Casey,that's a different story. Casey breaks every single rule and still has a massive following. But for most people whoare starting from 0 views and 0 subscribers, youwanna have compelling titles for your videos becausepeople are searching you. They don't know you yet. 

So let me give you sometemplates, some examples, because I got started as a copywriter. Remember back then whenI was doing copyrighting, when I was writing any kind of titles, any kind of headlines, we call them. That we wanted to make it interesting. And one of the litmustest is, we ask ourselves, would this headlinework in a classified ad. Yes, I know, newspaper, I'mmy age, I get that, okay? But newspaper, people areflipping through the newspaper and they can see, okay, wouldthis headline be compelling enough for people to read, wanting to find out more information. So it's the same thing. Let me give you some provenheadlines or just some ideas when it comes to titles. Number one, how to. How to is always a very,very powerful title because people go onyoutube, they wanna find out how do I do something? How to, it's a very, very powerful title. One of my videos that went kind of viral is how to make a thousand dollars a day using your smartphone. 

So it has a promise andalso tells them hey, I will learn how to do something. So how to is a huge category on youtube. Second, it could be avariation of that, like how I. How I have done something. Another video that wentviral for my channel is how I retired at the ageof 27, where I kind of share my story, what I've done, some of the lessons I've learned. So that's another example. Another good example is secrets of. Secrets of. So people wanna know, rightJarvis, people wanna know. People want to know, sir. They wanna know what are the secrets. Secrets of. So example of one of myvideos, the secret to closing more sales, that's another example. The secret of or secrets of. And if you have a specificnumber 3 or 4 or 5, that's even more powerful. Another example, warningtype headline such as, I have this video calleddon't start a business until you watch this or don'tstart your youtube channel until you watch this. It's kind of like a warning,hey, don't do that until you watch this video. You see how it's verymuch curiosity driven? Or, one more example andthat is a headline, a title that is outcome driven. Example, the most dangerousanimals in the world. Oh, that's interesting. 

You see, that has a veryparticular, very precise, very specific pay off. When your viewers click on thatvideo before they even click on that video, they know exactlywhat they are going to get. Now when your channel is small, right? When you have 0 views and 0 subscribers, when you use a title likehey, my trip to Europe. Nobody gives a damn. Because no one knowswho you are yet, right? And once you have millionsof followers and subscribers, sure, my trip to Europe,your fans want to know hey, what is going on, I wanna know. Those vlogging type videosyou will get attraction. But in the beginning,it's much more difficult to get traction if you are not well known. So why not focus a topic that people are already searching for, right? Using how to, using warning,using secrets of, right? Using those proven titles. That way you'll grow much, much faster. YouTube secret number two. Hook them with a youtube trailer. Think about your favorite movie,right, before it comes out. You're all excited. The movie company, what didthey do, they release a trailer. 

They give you some of thebest scenes from the movie so you're looking forwardwhen the movie comes out. You should do the same thingfor your youtube channel. So you have your first timevisitor going to your channel, going to the homepage of your channel. They could click on it and they could see what your channel is about. Robert Cialdini, his book Influence, The Psychology of Persuasion. He talks about why you need to give them a reason to do something. People need to know, theyneed to have a reason why they need to do it. It's not enough to say hey,my content is fantastic, my videos are fantasticthat you should subscribe. It's not good enough. So in your trailer tell themwho you are, what you're about, how often you upload,why should they subscribe and exactly what you want them to do. Now would it be helpful if Igive you some kind of a script for your trailer, comment below. Yes, here we go. You could say something like this. Hey, my name is blank. I am an entrepreneur, I'm a blogger, I'm a travel enthusiast,whatever it might be. I am a blank, right? When you subscribe to my channel,you tell them you're gonna get X, Y, Z. What are the benefits,why should we subscribe. Hey, you're gonna learn moreabout this, you're gonna learn more about that, you'regonna get this kind of value. You gotta tell people that, right? And also tell them everysingle week I upload one video, two videos or every singleTuesday and Thursday I will upload a video for you. Tell them the frequency of your uploads so they know what to expect. And don't forget to tell peopleexactly what you want them to do, don't assume becauseyou have good content, oh, they'll naturally subscribe. No, you gotta tell them, sotell them hey, click the little button here, subscribe orclick on the button there, subscribe to my youtube channel today. And make sure you hit the bell. Make sure you turn on the notifications. You got to tell them what to do. 

You got it? Secret number three and that is fall in love with yourfans, not your content. One of the biggest mistakesa lot of YouTubers make, they make videos that theywant to make instead of making videos that your fans want. You see it's very easy toforget that there's another human being behind this, watching you. You look at the thumbs up,you look at the numbers, you look at the views, you lookat subscribers and you think it's just a digit, wellit's not just a digit, let me tell you this. Behind this, there's a person. There's a human being withfeelings, emotions and struggles. Never forget that. Don't ever, ever treatyour fan like a digit. It's very important and Ithink one of the reasons why my series Boss in theBentley did so well on youtube, because it's Q&A, it's my fans,you, submitting a question. And I answer them, Iinteract and I comment. That makes a huge difference. So you have to care about your fans. Another thing that youcould do is as a creator, as a YouTubers, you could giveyour fans comment a heart. To let them know, and whenyou do that, your fan who left a comment would actually geta notification that you have given them a heart. Sometimes I know, whenI read your comments, I give you a heart, andmy fans, you're thinking, is that really you, Dan didyou just give me a heart? Yes, it's really me. I think any YouTubers whenthey think they're too big and they're too popular andthey no longer connect with their fans, they're not gonna last long. 

YouTube secret number four. Have a CTA in your video. What does CTA stand for? Call to action. Call to action, you have totell your viewers exactly what you want them to do. Do you want them to shareyour video, do you want them to give you a thumbs up, do you want them to comment below on your video. You have to tell them exactly what to do. Never ever assume. You see, one of the things thatI did when I started telling my viewers, you, to click onthe button below and subscribe to my channel, I saw a significant jump in terms of subscribers that I get. At first I thought, hey,if you love my content, don't you naturally subscribe? People don't do that. And there are many ways you can do this. There are many ways you caninsert a call to action. Example, you can do itbefore, during and after. So, in the beginning of your video you can say something like hey,if this is first time viewer watching my video or this isthe first time you are visiting my channel, make sure youhit the subscribe button. You could do something like that. Or in the middle, right? During your video you could sayhey, if you want me to teach you more about this, you wantme to share more about this experience, you want me to makemore of this kind of video, make sure you comment below and hey, don't forget to subscribe. Or you can also do it at the end, of course don't overdo this, you don't wanna do it three, four times, that's a bit overkill. But at the end of your video,you could say something like hey, don't forget tosubscribe to my channel. Make sure you hit thesubscribe button below and click on the bell. And turn on the notifications,it's very important that you ask them to turn on the notifications. It means that every singletime you release a video, there's a chance that theywill see it on their homepage. 

The subscribers feed. So then they are more likelyto click on your video. So call to action. YouTube secret numberfive, and that is long term consistency trumps short term intensity. I think most YouTubers,they give up too soon. They upload some videos, orthey upload a dozen videos and then they give up becausethey are saying to themselves, no one is watching my video,I'm not getting enough views, no comment, why? I spent so much time making these videos. I know how you feel. I know how sucky it iswhen you upload a video and you spend all thattime, you're creating that perfect piece of contentand then no one watches your video but you haveto stay consistent. You have to think thatthis is a long term game. Think of it as like you'repushing a snowball uphill, right. In the beginning it's very, very heavy. 

And you keep pushing and youkeep pushing but once you hit that tipping point, once yougo over the mountain, the hump. Everything becomes so much faster. Like this snowball effect. I still remember what tookme before, months, the amount of views it took me months to get, now I could get it in hours. Why, because of the snowball effect. I promise you, if you uploadtwo times a week instead of one time, your channel will grow faster. If you upload three times aweek instead of two times, your channel will grow even faster. My channel exploded the minuteI commit to a daily upload. Now I'm not saying thatyou have to upload a video every single day, but that works. 

That long term consistencyabsolutely trumps that short term intensity. Do it long term, think ofthis as a long term game. You're investing, you'rebuilding an asset. You're building a platform. It is absolutely worth it. So those are the five secretson how to grow with 0 views and 0 subscribers, I have somany more secrets I wanna share with you, in fact I'm doinga special online event.
