How to Get a Million Subscribers on YouTube

Becoming a hit on YouTube is no easy task. Actually, correction: Becoming a hit on YouTube ON PURPOSE is no easy task.

One thing is to accidentally create a silly video that goes viral and another very different thing is to build your subscribers list to the thousands or even millions of youtubers that will watch and comment your videos.

So, how do you become a YouTube star?

Here is a list of tricks you can do to get a million subscribers on youtube, it was taken from and interview with rising youtube partner DeStorm Powers who has more than half a million subscribers on youtube.

DeStorm’s goal is to reach 1 million subscribers soon and gets angry every time that he gets less than 2000 new subscribers in one day.

Make as many videos as you can

Aim to push out at least two videos a week, though the sweet spot is probably closer to three or four in order to keep your numbers up.

Invest on a good HD camera an learn how to edit your videos

Visuals matter, but beautiful visuals won’t appear on their own. High quality YouTube videos require an investment of both money and time. DeStorm suggested picking up a decent HD camera and the proper mics if you have the cash. That investment helped DeStorm get more youtube subscribers.

You can also learn how to create killer videos using a cheap pocket HD camera, a simple lapel mic and some easy editing tricks

Promote your videos using social media

By branching out on popular social networks, you can grab viewers that might not otherwise find you through YouTube itself. DeStorm’s Facebook following also means that when he posts a new video, he has a better shot of hitting YouTube’s front page. The time spent on other networks can directly help your channel.

DeStorm said. “When I’m on Facebook, I’m using that for YouTube. When I’m on Twitter, I’m using that for YouTube.”

Make spoofs and alternative versions of popular videos

Even before they are released…

“You can go the route to drop a music video before that music video actually drops.” This means that people looking for the actual video will stumble upon your fake version.

Do collabs and joint ventures with other youtubers

Collaborations are an important way to increase your youtube subscribers. DeStorm advised finding other YouTuber users with similar amounts of subscribers and collaborating on videos.

Talk about what’s hot and trending

Listen for topics that are trending on the Internet and find unique, creative ways to cover them.

Show your face!

Make sure you show your face and name somewhere in the video so viewers can recognize you, and also make sure you look at the camera — viewers like to think you’re talking to them rather than reading off a script.

    Really awesome article Alejandro! The two parts I have the most trouble with, you’ll probably tell me are the two MOST imprtant parts of the formula, consistantly getting videos out every week (nevermind 3 or 4!) and showing my face. I realize HD camera’s are not that expensive, but if I get in front of it and break it then I’ll have to buy a new one!
    I love your blog and really appreciate your advice, tips and secrets. Thank you for keeping me inspired and you will probably be the reason I do finally get in FRONT of the camera, I’m getting tired of having to put 5 times more effort into my videos than the next (even uglier!) guy who just turns on the camera and starts talking. I am very picky about my videos and nothing I do is ever good enough, I have been in front of the camera but I always scrap the vids and go back to the PowerPoint and Camtasia and After Effects! Thanks again, B

    I have a few comments and observations.

    * Good advice on showing faces. Thats incredibly underrated technique because people love looking at faces.

    * Beyond simply other marketing efforts, you can actually buy views and subscribers at various sites.

    * I think getting such a large number of followers as a million is more often luck than anything else. That’s a very large number to achieve.

    * I don’t know that it’s necessary to have an HD camera. Some of the most famous internet videos ever are low resolution. If you’re ever walking around with an iPhone and the mood strikes you to film a video, the fact that you don’t have top of the line HD equipment shouldn’t prevent you from trying.
