These 3 YouTube Myths Are Killing Your Channel

These 3 myths are KILLING your chances at being a full-time YouTuber…

So I’m going to debunk these myths for you and get you on the right track.

But here’s the thing:

You need to be willing to shift your mindset completely…

Up until now, you’ve been told and taught things that are plain wrong. 

Or you heard these “myths” back when they were still true – and now they’re outdated.

I’m going to snap you back into reality and reveal how things REALLY work.

Let’s get into the first myth:

1) Quality over quantity

It is a common misconception that quality is BETTER than quantity.

That is untrue.

Quality and quantity are both very important for growing a YouTube channel…

But the thing is:

Quantity is much more important (for most of us) when you start your channel.

Why is that?

​Because when you start creating content, your content will be shit.

And the only way to get better, is to practice.

The more videos you make, the better you get at making videos. 

And every video you release has a chance to bring in more views and subscribers.

More videos = more chances.

If you want more views and subscribers, making more videos is the easiest way to do that. 

Although if you don’t know exactly what videos to make… it will take a lot of trial and error.

Here’s the interesting part:

Some big YouTubers will tell you to focus on quality over quantity simply because it worked for them.

I’m here to tell you that this CAN work for you but it probably won’t.

Because you need a lot of talent and skill to pull that off – and it’s VERY unlikely you’ll have that when you start your YouTube channel.

Grinding away, producing videos and getting better with each video is a method EVERYONE can follow – even if you have ZERO talent.

So what’s myth number 2?

2) Subscribers see every video you upload

​It honestly astounds me that in 2019, people still believe that subscribers matter.

They don’t. 

Subscribers are NOT shown every video you upload.

If someone misses a few of your videos, YouTube will stop showing them your content.

But if you rely on the good SEO practices I teach – you won’t have to worry about that.

Let me explain:

My YouTube channel averages over 703,278 watch time minutes a month…

2.2% of my watch time comes from subscribers.

Yes, you read that correctly.


Now this is because I have a variety channel and I focus mostly on tutorials…

But I’ve been able to build a successful YouTube channel – basically without any subscriber support.

Over 60% of my monthly views come from the YouTube search bar. That’s why SEO is so powerful!

Alright, let’s wrap this up with the 3rd myth:

3) You cant make money with a small YouTube channel

I prove this myth wrong every day.

I make a full-time income from my small YouTube gaming channel.

But the most interesting thing is:

I could have done this with a MUCH SMALLER CHANNEL.

If I could take my current knowledge back to when I had 500 subscribers, I would have been able to create an income before even reaching 5k.

There are some people on YouTube who are running full-time businesses and making a comfortable living with less than 10k subscribers.

And I know you may be reading this thinking:

“I don’t have 1k subs and 4000 hours of watch time yet – I can’t make money!!”

Well, that’s bullshit.

Adsense isn’t the ONLY way to make money on YouTube – it’s just the easiest and, frankly, the worst.

You will make your first $100 online WAAAAAY quicker by selling a service or product…

Or even selling someone else’s products through affiliate marketing.
