The Journey to 470,000 YouTube Subscribers
Your channel's about kind of answering questions. How did you kind of choose that genre or did it kind of all choose you maybe? Initially, he was broadcasting mainly to family and friends, answering their queries on a range of topics. His content at the beginning was 100% comedy based, inspired by video OG ZeFrank. He then noticed that real answers to questions generated more engagement, so he pivoted slightly to focus on answering one question per video rather than seven or eight. He essentially started doubling down on the content that he found was working for him.
Often, creators start on YouTube but get frustrated very quickly because of the lack of traction, which Joe totally understand because he experienced the same thing. But going all in, and committed to the creator process will pay off if you dedicate yourself to improving with every upload. YouTube is also the long-game for the vast majority of creators, and Joe confirms that you have to give your “permission” to do it so you become more invested. It's when he did that then things really took a turn for the better for his content and his channel.
