How To Get Your First 100 YouTube Subscribers 2020

SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE VIDEOS

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

You may or may not know this but SCG SHOW is my 6th YouTube channel I’ve attempted to make in the last 5 years.

And the previous ones I have failed so badly with them all.

Why?

Because I didn’t know what I was doing, or how I was doing it.

It is really easy to get swept up in the whole YouTube channel dream.

You think that you are going to become this millionaire with 1 million subs to go with it.

But then all of a sudden you upload what YOU believe to be great content, and nobody views it or even cares what you are doing!

What is worse is you keep looking at your subscriber number, and it drives you bloody crazy!

Suddenly those far of dreams of being a millionaire and a huge YouTube star seem very far away.

Instead your goals become way more realistic, aka “I just want 100 subs!

Well I am here to tell you it is entirely possible to hit that number, and smaller goals often lead to bigger ones.

Focus on these type of targets instead.

It will also give you the confidence and belief that you are in fact on the right track if you think this way instead.

Also, I want to make a disclaimer, I grew to over 100 subs in 28 days ENTIRELY ORGANICALLY.

So if you are looking for a black hat or dodgy service this post and advice is NOT for you.

DON’T BUY SUBS

DON’T BUY VIEWS

This will I guarantee HURT your YouTube channel in the long run.

Google is not fond of any dodgy services coming your way, so I suggest you stay as far away from it as possible!

Here is a screen shot of my results.

As you can see over the last 28 days of January 2020 I have grown over 111 subscribers!

Also my views are massively up as well.

The following tips may go against what many other YouTubers may stress, however this is what worked for me and at such rapid speed.

In fact I was monitoring another YouTube channel since the first week of January 2020, and they have over 1,000 subs!

So whoever is telling you it’s hard to grow on YouTube or takes too much time;

DO NOT LISTEN TO THEM!

The first tip I would strongly suggest you do is to upload daily for at least 30 days.

Let us work out a simple equation;

30 videos = 30 more possible views a day.

30 views a day x 30 days in a month = 900 views.

900 views x 10% of viewers subscribe = 90 more subs.

New YouTubers are often so lazy, they upload 2-3 views in their first month and are bummed out that they have no activity on their channel.

In December 2019, YouTube channels grew a whopping 20% on average more so than in any other year beforehand.

Why you ask?

Because of a little thing called Vlogmas.

Vlogmas is uploading daily Vlogs for the whole of December aka 30/31 days.

By doing this the channels grow massively, and those who are indeed monetized earn some serious adsense revenue!

Now I don’t Vlog, but I upload daily my thoughts and opinions on the subjects I want to talk about on my show.

I would suggest you start Vlogging from today for 30 days straight, but before you do, make sure you have a plan.

So get a diary and a calendar out and write continuously all of the subjects and videos you are going to write about over the next month.

Advertisements

It is VERY important to have a plan, and to be disciplined.

On top of that, the more vidoes and content you create, the more over the next few months organically your stuff will be shown and suggested.

Luckily for me, I ranked halfway through January because YouTube recognized I was more active and the site favours those who work hard and provide more value.

So start vlogging ASAP!

The reason why I suggest Vlogging is because you don’t need to go buy expensive equipment to start filming.

All you need is your smart phone and you are good to go!

Now I don’t Vlog, but I upload daily my thoughts and opinions on the subjects I want to talk about on my show.

As you do this, remember you need an eye catching thumbnail for people to click on.

I will let you in on a secret here, the more click through you get on your videos, the higher YouTube will rank your video!

And the higher you rank the more views you get, and subs at the same time.

So work hard, find good images, create catchy titles and for god’s sake be clickbait!

It doesn’t matter if others don’t tell you to, I do, and please use Canva.com it’s free for you to create thumbnails!

The last suggestion is use SEO – Search Engine Optimization.

Remember your tags and titles are absolutely vital and of course you’re content too.

You do NOT want to make a video not related to the title and tags.

This will hurt your reach and subs, trust me on this you need to get this right.

And above all this is also so vital but be patient.

I am truly blessed and lucky to have had such quick growth, but frankly I have worked my butt off.

If you want to grow quickly on YouTube you need to have the guts and mental strength to be beyond patient.

Be prepared to see NO activity for quite some time.

But over time if you upload for 30 days, and with good thumbnails with excellent SEO attached, it is a mixture for success I guarantee you.

On top of that spread your content everywhere, start a Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and even a blog like I did.

This is only going to help you with your exposure, and Google and YouTube likes good quality link building.

What’s more your content COULD go viral on YouTube, so what are you waiting for?

Good luck!

10 Legal Ways To Make Money And Passive Income Online

SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE VIDEOS

“The more you learn, the more you earn”

There are plenty of internet gurus out there telling people how lavish their lifestyles are etc, but they are rarely actually giving helpful tips into how to make money online!

Making money online is easy for some but difficult for many.

They are lazy, lack the knowledge, or are trying to scam people into purchasing a course that just upsells them continuously.

I am here to let you know that there are actually legitimate ways for you to make money online and passively depending on how you set this up.

I have had personal experience in all I have suggested and have made money through all of the following methods.

So rest assured you are in good hands, and do not worry you will not be signing up to any course or any upsell.

These are all legitimate and established websites where you can start earning from within the hour.

But full disclosure here, I am not a financial advisor, if you are seeking more professional advice please reach out the right people.

I am just a guy who has made a living online for the last ten years, and will hopefully continue to do so.

There is no limit to what you can achieve online, the internet is constantly expanding and growing.

With hard work and determination you can earn money online, and the secret is to also have multiple sources of income.

“Do not put all your eggs into one basket.”

Let’s begin:

ETSY▶️

I have done a post on Etsy previously and simply put it is a fantastic way to make money online if you possess any artistic skill at all.

“Etsy is an e-commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items and craft supplies.

These items fall under a wide range of categories, including jewellery, bags, clothing, home décor and furniture, toys, art, as well as craft supplies and tools.

All vintage items must be at least 20 years old.”

I would highly suggest selling printable artwork on Etsy, as there is no stock to hold onto, no cost other than the cheap listing fee, and its 100% pure profit!

Etsy has millions of buyers on there every month, and who knows what you can achieve if you tap into the right niche!

YouTube ▶️

Starting a YouTube channel can literally change your life.

You will be tapping into the second largest search engine in the world, and I have seen YouTubers grow from 0 to 10,000 subscribers in just a year alone!

The way you can make money with YouTube is almost endless;

  • Adsense after you get monetized
  • Sponsor deals
  • Affiliate links
  • Sell products
  • And so much more!

Start creating today – do NOT miss out on this opportunity!

It is NEVER too late to start YouTube, and remember whilst you are sat there watching a YouTube video someone is earning money for it.

eBay ▶️

Dropshippers on eBay in 2019 alone made over 6 figures selling such random stuff online!

But if you prefer going for a more legal and legit approach you have several options.

One is similar to Etsy and it is to create your own handmade goods, as eBay has millions of buyers every single day.

Another approach is to partner up with exclusive companies who do not sell online and act as their reseller.

This won’t count as dropshipping because you are the exclusive contact and these companies might sell high ticket items which you can make a huge profit off of!

Simply put their items on eBay and put a nice margin on top, then when orders come in use the money from the customer to pay for the item from the supplier and you’ve just made a tidy sum!

It’s THAT easy!

I made several thousand doing this in Q4 2019, and I was selling handmade goods I was making for the Xmas rush!

Do not underestimate eBay!

Kindle ▶️

I first published my book in 2017 on Amazon here.

Easily one of the best achievements of my life, and if you consider yourself a writer you can publish your book on there too!

It can be about anything you want, just make sure it’s not too graphic and goes with Amazons policies and terms.

So when you publish your book onto Amazon, it can be either for Kindle or Paperback.

I strongly recommend you opting for both!

Since doing so, I receive a commission for every book I sell, it is so easy.

But I worked VERY hard on writing, editing and publishing, but depending on how quickly you can write, you can write several books a year!

3 years later people still buy my book and I earn commissions for it, so get your typewriter out and start writing!

Clickbank ▶️

Clickbank is very simply a marketplace of digital products from all sorts of niches and backgrounds.

It is totally legit, and safe.

Here is the best part, every time you make a commission from someone buying a product from your affiliate link provided by Clickbank, you get it paid into your bank account within the next week!

On top of that, some products have recurring programs, so if you get 10 people to sign up to a $100 program, you make $1000 a month literally by doing nothing.

Clickbank is fantastic and has made plenty of millionaires over the years.

I remember going to the movies with my girl, and coming out 2 hours later to login to Clickbank to find I had made $250 off a product I had linked weeks ago on a forum for weight loss.

That is the power of passive income!

Fiverr ▶️

Fiverr is a marketplace for online services such as make a logo design, provide a professional voiceover, and so much more.

Don’t be misled by the name, you can charge whatever you like for your services!

I used to make so much off of Fiverr when it first launched by just providing voiceover work because I had a British accent!

Do not waste time, if you have a specific skill check out Fiverr today!

Coaching ▶️

Online Coaching has made the likes of Sam Ovens and plenty more multi-millionaires.

Because people will pay top dollar for advice on things they do not know the answers too.

Now please be legit, do not say you are an expert on something and not provide value.

I provide Coaching on what I am an expert in, and I back it up with evidence and proof.

So perhaps you are great at giving advice on relationships, or marriage or health.

Get your brand name out there, build a following and people will eventually if they like what you are offering in terms of content will start to become regular clients of your Coaching services.

Shopify ▶️

Shopify is a subscription to a software service that offers you to create a website and use their shopping cart solution to sell, ship and manage your products.

Using their service, you can get an access to easy to use admin panel where you can add products, process orders and enter store data.

Shopify is an easy way to create your own online store and sell whatever it is you want.

Pick a niche, design it easily with Shopify, and start marketing it out there.

Be wary of gurus telling you how much they make from Shopify, do your own research.

Shopify is just a software service, you have to drive your own traffic to it and grow it yourself.

For a free trial to Shopify click here.

Print on Demand ▶️

Print on demand, as the word explains, these are sites where printing is done in small quantities based on the order.

Unlike publishing houses and garment companies which print books or apparels in bulk; print on demand sites & services are more customer need based.

Print on demand has made more millionaires in the last 24 months than almost any other making money online idea.

I sell my own merchandise on Teespring here.

There is no stock for me to hold, and I get a cut of every Print on demand product sold!

So if you fancy yourself a designer, start creating gear and on Teespring today, just make sure it’s nothing copy written!

Social Media Adspace ▶️

Now the last way is to sell Social Media Adspace on your accounts.

I know somebody who has over 50,000 followers on their Instagram page, and he charges $100 for companies or brands to place their url in his description.

So if you have a big following start selling your ad space!

People make over six figures annually by just doing this as they have huge followings to allow them to.

You can do the same, or if you don’t have a large amount of followers spend one year posting consistently every day and you will get results I swear!

How To Make Money on Etsy (Proof of Earnings!)

How to Make Money on Etsy (My Proof of Earnings!)

Exactly a year ago to the day, I decided to start selling on Etsy!

For those of you who do not know what Etsy is:

Etsy is an e-commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items and craft supplies. These items fall under a wide range of categories, including jewellery, bags, clothing, home décor and furniture, toys, art, as well as craft supplies and tools. All vintage items must be at least 20 years old.

As somebody who has a background in making money online, starting on Etsy still was no easy feat.

Yet I set myself a target of focusing in 2019 to build up my store and my brand on the platform.

What I did initially was research exactly what I could do to sell on there.

Advertisements

I had a tiny bit of experience previously with selling on eBay and Amazon, but Etsy seemed most intriguing to me.

My background was digital marketing and I considered myself a bit of an artist, so it looked like a lot of fun!

With that said, I decided to start selling art printables on Etsy.

Art printables are like pieces of artwork that I create on Photoshop or Canva and they are digital products that customers can download and print for themselves.

Take this for example:

So this delightful little fellow is a piece of art I created, and therefore, when somebody purchases this art printable through Etsy, they will immediately receive the PDF and PNG files.

That means, they will receive with no watermark the original print that they can get framed, enlarge, or place wherever they like!

That is why I worked hard to create over 1000 different types of prints, artwork, typography and similar digital products.

Here are the statistics for my first year:

So as you can see for the last 12 months or so I averaged over 29,000 visitors directly to my Etsy store!

I found that to be incredibly impressive, seeing that I was not established, and completely brand new with no reputation.

In that time frame I managed to make over 361 sales, but the actual figure is 375 sales!

This is because Etsy doesn’t factor in the stats people buying more than one product which a handful did.

My conversion rate was 1.2% which I believe again is excellent especially for a brand new store!

And finally my revenue was £2,982!

Not bad for year one, considering that art prints do not have any expenses!

That’s what I loved about creating them, is that they are pure profit.

Having said that, my biggest expense of course was the time and energy spent creating them all.

However, I was happy because I averaged a sale a day, and that was my target and the beautiful thing about Etsy is that it can be passive!

But remember you don’t have to just sell art printables, you can sell handmade jewellery, vintage clothing, bracelets, and stickers whatever you like!

Advertisements

Let’s have a look in a bit more detail my statistics!

So Etsy sent me 71% of my traffic over the past 12 months which is pretty awesome!

That means that through their search, their front page, and recommended, my products were ranking and getting a lot of traction!

In case you didn’t know as of December 2019, Etsy received almost 229 million visitors!

A large majority of Etsy’s users and customers are in fact female, with money to burn!

So if you create the right products for the right customers you will see some excellent returns indeed.

The remaining 29% of my traffic came from direct.

To this day I am not really too sure what direct traffic meant, seeing that I have only just created SCGSHOW.COM in early 2020, so who knows I am not complaining!

And the 1,384 came from social and that was mainly from my Pinterest.

I managed through hard work, patience and determination to build my Pinterest monthly impressions to over 50,000 per month in my first year!

That means 50,000 different people every month are seeing my pins, and products!

Pinterest is in fact the 3rd largest search engine on the web, after Google and YouTube.

And, Pinterest also has a large audience of female buyers who earn on average over $50,000 per year.

Shop owners and Etsy sellers have realized this and capitalized on this massively.

Do not worry it is not too late to start at all!

This is PlannerKate1 who sells sets of stickers on Etsy for around £4.80 per set.

She has been on Etsy for almost 6 years, and has made over a staggering 860,000 sales!

That means her turnover is easily over £4,000,000!

Just from selling stickers on Etsy!

Think about potentially what you can make if you work hard, market yourself and put out the best products you can!

Whilst my Etsy earnings are not massive right now, what I love about it the most is it purely passive.

So every time an art printable of mine is sold, the profit goes straight into my account.

I had sacrificed the blood, sweat and tears starting from absolutely zero to build a reputation.

But my goal doesn’t have to be the same as yours of course!

Advertisements

If you want, you can go full time on Etsy, but you got to be able to do the work.

You must network with the right people.

Be willing to advertise everywhere.

Become a master at SEO.

Understand that success takes a lot of time.

However as you can see from plannerkate or a complete beginner like me it IS possible to make money on Etsy!

What I love is having been able to create artwork and prints that I could be proud of, and I am happy to admit people were satisfied with the services I provided.

Yet there are people out there making over 1000 sales a day due to millions of visitors Etsy receives on a monthly basis!

Don’t wait until Etsy becomes the next Amazon, and it is beyond competitive to get your foot in the door!

Start now, and please feel free to share your stores below and good luck in your ecommerce journey!
