5 Things you should know before starting a YouTube Channel EP090
Not sure how many of you know this, but I have been pouring a ton of money, time, and energy into something that is completely free to all of you. To the point where recently I thought, “what the hell am I doing, this is crazy!” Of course I didn’t think it was crazy when I started, I thought and felt all of the things many of us do when we start something new….excitement, nerves, passion, hope, and fantasying about all of the amazing things to come. Then the high wears off after the results don’t pour in like we fantasized about or even worse expected. I’ve been an entrepreneur for 11 years, so I know that things take time, typically much longer then we would even like. For whatever reason, with my new TV Show ProjectME TV with Tiffany Carter, based on YouTube, I found my self with 11 episodes in feeling discouraged and doubting my decision to go all in with top-notch production, sound, glam, and editing. “This is costing me a small fortune to produce plus a ton of time and I barely have any views, what gives?!!!!!” I even thought about putting it on hold. Even as I’m typing this I’m laughing at how entitled and ridiculous I sound. Aside from the small percentage of first time videos that go viral, since when does someone get a shit ton of engagement on YouTube after posting 11 episodes without any advertising. That would be like someone creating a blog from scratch with 11 blog articles and wondering why they don’t have a solid number of readers, comments, or sponsors. So as with everything, I thought this would be a good teaching experience for all of you. For anyone who is interested in starting a video based channel or really anything digital for that matter, this episode is for you.
