The problem that most people face when they are first starting out on youtube is that they aren’t very good at making videos because they have never done it before.
The typical person’s journey on YouTube goes something like this. They discovery how amazing youtube is. They get inspired and start creating videos. They upload them to youtube and they get little to no views. They get discouraged and give up on making videos and the dream they have of making a successful youtube channel starts to crumble and disappear.
To properly understand why this happens you need to take a step back and look at your videos objectively. Are they really good enough to capture people’s attention and make them want to watch the video all the way to the end?
For the majority of people out there when you are starting a YouTube channel it is probably the first time you are attempting to create a video. Because the barrier to entry is so low. It is like allowing anyone to line up next to Usain Bolt and run the 100m. The average Joe is never going to stand a chance.
Making videos for YouTube is a serious undertaking. The barrier to entry is so low that anyone can start and this is the greatest thing about youtube anyone can make videos and upload them.
Now I’m going to tell you the secret to starting a successful youtube channel for beginners. This formula is so easy anyone can do it. Are you ready for it?
Create a new video that was better than your last video

It took me 74 videos to get anywhere near a semi ok video.
When I started YouTube I was terrible at making videos, I was uncomfortable and awkward on camera. I didn’t know who to structure my videos, write captivating titles, create eye-catching thumbnails. I was even terrible at talking to the camera. But as I created more and more videos I started to get a little bit better with each video and I started to see results and grow in the views on my videos. Now we have a video that has got more than 84,000 views.
It’s still not the best video in the world and we can definitely get better but it is a start. That’s what I want you to do today. Don’t put off starting because you are worried what people will think of you or because you don’t think it is perfect. Start Now and be imperfect and you can improve it later.
If you procrastinate starting now you will keep putting it off and you will never get started.
