I’ve given YouTube a fair stab this last month or 2.
My efforts have doubled my subscriber count from an insignificant 60 or so to a marginally small 141 (as of today).. Its not meteoric and its not going to make me a millionaire but its growth.
I’ve tried a few different types of videos with varying success as my confidence and happiness in hearing my own voice and seeing these moving selfies has grown. But now what?
Its fair to say
- I don’t live in a part of the world that has bucket list trails
- I’m not famous
- I can’t shred like Ben Deakin
- I don’t have balls as big as Sam Pilgrim
- I’m not a Red Bull athlete like Matt Jones
- etc etc
So why would you watch my “channel”? What’s different about it?
Well, my aim is to produce content that you can relate to, it might not go viral or make you jealous but it might just make you realise that (if you didn’t already know) you can have fun on a bike just about anywhere and on any budget.
I want to grow the subscribers and I’m going to keep trying to figure out just what it is that will make my channel tick, with out forcing it and by continuing to be me. However Youtube, like all social media platforms, has its peculiarities and you have to know how to work it to make it work for you… That’s the tough part.
Anyway, watch this space. Maybe by the time you read this the channel will have 142 subscribers!
But while you are here, why not go and watch this video and please tell me what you thought of it… Please??
