Results will vary, of course, but after 12 years on YouTube, I knew that starting this youtube channel with what I know would give me the best chance to make it happen fast, and I'm happy to pass on these 5 tips to you.

      I agree with all of these tips!! I started my channel last year as well to document my collecting journey and grew to 400 subs within 3 months.

      I’ll use the tips in this video to get over the 1k sub milestone.

      Thanks Pat!

      Hey thanks for this! Going to give title and thumbnail FIRST a try and see if that improves things. =)

      I used to be monetized before they changed the rules for the 4k hours, and now I”m not 🙁 It’s tough with music videos to get the watch time.

      Thank you very much for this video Pat! I was doing research on this very topic! Just a side note, I constantly hear a sound in the background. It’s very similar to a cloth rubbing to the microphone. Best wishes!

      Thanks for the tips, Pat

      Hi Pat, been following SPI since 2014 I think. You refer to 2 months at the 9min mark – do you mean you spent 1 month researching & helping other YouTubers before launching?

      • Pat Flynn March 1, 2021 at 6:43 pm #

        Ahh, no – there were a few months of research done before even creating the channel. Sorry for not clarifying that!

    9. Margaret McLaren March 1, 2021 at 5:58 pm #

      Research. And serve first. Great advice!

      I just realized I missed the 10k party, darn.

      • Pat Flynn March 1, 2021 at 8:16 pm #

        All good Kyle! Next one is at 25k, let’s go!

      This is exactly what I needed! Starting a new YouTube channel really soon, this information is invaluable. Thanks Pat!

      This is an incredible video Pat, as a fellow side hustle nerd and Pokemon nerd I’ve been following your new channel closely. I’ve one question though… How on earth do you find the time to do it all? Even with a team, it feels like you’re constantly on the podcast or on Youtube so how do you find time to do anything else?

      • Pat Flynn March 1, 2021 at 8:16 pm #

        Thanks for the question Cora! If I were to narrow it down, it would be absolute focus, and absolute prioritization of time. Knowing what will move the needle, and focusing on that and not getting distracted saves a lot of time!

      i’m curios to what affiliates you’ll have on the pokemon channel since its way different to your other main channels, perhaps do video on that next? maybe share the revenue analytics of that channel too?. just giving you some ideas lol. btw this video was super helpful an made me want to start my own channel

      It doesn’t hurt that you’ve already got a bagillion followers already.
