If you already have a plan go stick out from the rest then just be patient bro. Most of the big youtubers we are watching have been on the platform for 5 to 10 years almost. And starting up is hard. But once you are going it will be a snowball effect (my snowball isn't moving yet, but i have a feeling it will roll down soon!)I'd love to get in to answering questions on my channel, not quite got the traffic but it will come I'm sure. I've a long way to go before I get the following of the likes of Motojitsu and MCRider. I saw a Motojitsu clip the other day, he comes across really well, good delivery, you can tell he's been on the tube some time! I can't get my head around MCR, his channel is well edited which I think gives him the appeal but the info given sometimes seems like he's trying too hard to find content - such as new riders riding with their side-stand down. It went on for ages and I reckon I'd have to find 500 bikes before I found one either with a faulty switch or a bike that old it didn't have a switch and was capable of actually being ridden like that. New riders don't purchase classic bikes generally. Can't think of a bike that doesn't cut out that's less than 30 years old when you stick it in gear - or maybe I'm wrong .... Fortunately I've got a few unique ideas to stand out from the crowd, I'm not close to where I want to be yet and am becoming patient haha. My delivery is way off so far but will improve. I might have a look at that tank slapper video
The key is you just gotta enjoy your stuff. If you do it to grow or get money you will get numbers crazy and get depressed really fast.
I started because i liked recording my rides with my friends, and because we like meme's i just eddited funny videos of us to watch and laugh on day we couldnt ride. And now i have 183 subs and a couple of core people that keep interacting which makes it even more fun to do.
Just ask the question, if no one would watch your videos, would you still do them. For me it's a def yes!
