Most YouTubers make this mistake

​Reverse engineering is a priceless skill.

It’s the process of looking at something that’s SUCCESSFUL and then figuring out how YOU can do the same.

But it’s not something most YouTubers are good at…

This morning, I got a comment on one of my videos from one of the many YouTubers that don’t have this skill.

He left a long ass comment about:

How the views I get on my channel are shit, my gaming videos don’t get views and how his “main channel” (that he wasn’t using to write the comment of course, has 56 subscribers and gets more views than my channel daily.

And I realised, yet again, why most YouTubers can’t reverse engineer success and ultimately won’t succeed…

The answer is: LAZINESS.

People are too damn lazy to learn how YouTube actually works.

There’s so much information and resources out there but some people watch a 5 min video and think they know all there is to know.

The thing is:

If this guy had spent less than 5 mins scrolling through my videos and channel he would have seen:

1. My channel gets over 25,000 views a day, without me trying. Much more than a channel with 56 subs and 7,000 lifetime views…

2. My videos on ARK get consistently good views (more importantly, they get me SALES). And most of my RDR2 videos have over 10k views (released in November, when I was more active on YT)

3. I have videos explaining everything he questioned and more.

The lesson:

The dude that commented was too caught up in the front-end of YouTube.

He only saw what the viewers see.

And he was too damn LAZY to do any research and LEARN.

If you want to succeed on YouTube, you need to understand how the platform works for creators.

You need to understand what’s going on BEHIND the curtain.

Because you cannot successfully reverse engineer something you don’t understand.

And you may end up reverse engineering something that’s popular but not actually successful…

As you very well know:

Views don’t matter if you can’t pay your bills. Get money, don’t get fame hungry.

I explain the mysteries of the back-end of YouTube and how you can avoid being one of the 96.5% of YouTubers that can’t make enough money to support themselves in my course.
