Do you want to be famous on YouTube?

It's not possible unless you have a ton of subscribers.

Without the subscribers, you're not going to become popular on YouTube. But you're starting from scratch. How do you get popular without spending money on ads?

Hey, everyone, I'm Neil Patel, and today I'm going to share with you how to generate over 25,000 subscribers on YouTube in less than a year.

#1 Your content has to be super emotional.

Just look at this video. I'm emotional when I speak and talk, not because I'm trying to do it on purpose, but it's because I'm super passionate about entrepreneurship and marketing.

#2: You have to tell people to subscribe to your channel
When they're out there, they're listening to your YouTube video. You have to ask them to subscribe.

At the end of my videos, I started adding that. I didn't have that in my earlier videos, but when I started adding that I noticed a significant increase in how many subscribers I was getting.

It was roughly three times more.

That's crazy.

All by telling people at the end of the video to subscribe the exit screen and the design which you can see right here, it makes it easier to get subscribers.

#3: The next thing you want to do is use the right keywords.

You can use tools like Google Trends to see what's popular. Google Keyword Traffic Estimator, or Google Keyword Planner technically, right?

But either way, it'll tell you what keywords are popular, the searches they're getting.

I also use Ubersuggest. It gives me more keyword ideas for my ideas. And this all tells me what keywords to put in my title, my descriptions, so that way my videos get more views.

#4: The next thing you want to do is go hit up other bloggers who are writing similar content about the videos you're producing and hit them up and ask them to embed your videos.

It's straightforward.

You go to; you type in keywords related to your videos. It'll show you the popular articles, and you want to shoot an email to the person who wrote that article.

"Hey John, I love your content, but you know what? Some people are visual learners. I created a video that's inspired by your latest blog post. I was wondering would you mind embedding it?"

So by getting more people to embed your videos, you're going to get external traffic.

#5: The last tip I have for you is to make sure your videos are super long and engaging.

If you're not showing emotion and engaging throughout your video or if your videos aren't long, they're not going to do well. Just go check out my earlier YouTube videos. Some are two minutes, three minutes, four minutes.

Some are even one minute. You know what happens when a video is really short?

YouTube doesn't give it much clout, your channel won't do as well, and all of your videos won't rank as high or getting as many suggestions, right?

You know once you're done watching a video, you see more suggested videos?

Well, the key to doing well on YouTube is to have a super long video. I'm not saying 30, 40 minutes.

Anything five or six minutes plus is excellent. Anything less than that is really hard to rank high unless you're going to terms that aren't competitive, which means it's not going to generate much traffic and you wouldn't get subscribers.

So make sure your videos are over five minutes long. If you follow these tips, you'll do well.

Or if you don't have time and you're a business, you can check out companies like which do YouTube consulting, and they'll teach you and do all the work for you and add in the keywords and the transcripts, so that way your YouTube videos get way more traffic and traction.

You can get over 25,000 subscribers in less than a year.

      It also helps to have 1 million subscribers elsewhere, that you can push into a new platform 🙂

      • Neil Patel December 27, 2017 at 5:22 pm #

        Of course, but nobody gets a platform like that overnight. You can grow it on YouTube, a blog, LinkedIn, Facebook, wherever. Then you can cross-promote on other channels. It all starts with the hard work of building a brand though.

      I liked tip#5 a lot. I think it’s brilliant. Another video that I would luv to see you make is how to be so energetic in ur videos! Some of us do not have this energy and enthusiasm throughout the day and sometimes when it is time to. Make the video ur Newry level is not that high so. Any tips on that would. Help. Thanks Neil!

      • Neil Patel December 28, 2017 at 5:39 pm #

        Thanks! My best advice is to figure out what time of day will work best for you. Most of us have specific periods of high energy, so it helps to capitalize on that. You can also try doing something energizing just before you film. If all else fails, coffee might work 🙂
