Step 6.Don’t join any  YouTube Networks (MCN – Multi Channel networks)

I suggest you, do not join any YouTube networks until you crossed 100000 subscribers.
because so many of YouTuber’s are suffered by bad YouTube MCN and lost most of their revenue and unable to get out from their networks.
so YouTube has a Decided to help Those YouTube creators and gives a flexibility option Remove MCN access from your channel, so I case if you face any problem with MCN then you can come out from that Network.

Step 7.Show your consistency

you should upload videos in a consistent manner like daily or twice in a week or once in a week. so that viewers can pay attention to uploading pattern and expect a video from your channel on that date which helps you in getting views and subscribers.

Step 8.Launch YouTube channel at least with 5 videos

Launch with 5 videos

Many of YouTuber’s done a small mistake in promoting their channel.

if a viewer has seen your YouTube channel with one video then he might not get interested in subscribing to your channel.
so if you upload at least 5 videos at your channel creation then he might watch other videos available on your channel then the chances of getting subscription will be high.

Step 9.Patience

success will not come overnight, so try to be patience from the starting stage until you get success.
For example, Earning in work does not even got 10 subscribers for about six months and later it has got views and subscribers.
later due to changing in policies of YouTube, this Earning in work had been removed, saying that this channel looks spam, but again I started same YouTube channel which is under creation process. why I am saying this is that there will be up’s and down’s for every task and we have to prepare to face it.
so please be patience.
