YouTube has become one of the most visited websites online with more than 1.9 billion active users per month, and second only to parent company Google in terms of daily searches on the site. On the surface, you might see YouTube as a place to watch music videos, tune into a favorite vlogger, or stream video games online, but it is so much more than that. YouTube is an untapped goldmine for people to make money online quickly. If you’re looking for ways to grow your YouTube channel for your business, here are five easy steps to reach your goal.

1 Have a Purpose

You need to have a clear objective and purpose for starting a YouTube channel. It takes more time to grow YouTube channels compared to other social media platforms, but knowing why you want to create video content can help you stay on track when things don't seem to be moving forward. It is imperative that you know your purpose for starting a YouTube channel if you want to find success.

2 Optimize Your Video Descriptions and Titles

As the second largest search engine, the best way for your videos to be found on the platform is to make sure that your descriptions and titles are SEO optimized. Determine the best keywords to use that are relevant to your industry and make sure to include them in your descriptions and titles. You also want to look at what currently exists and what the top ranking titles are in your industry.

3 Use VidIQ and TubeBuddy for Your Video Tags

James Charles started the week flying high at the Met Gala. Now his career seems to be in free fall.
The 19-year-old YouTube beauty blogger had around 16 million subscribers Friday, according to the website Social Blade. That number had fallen to almost 14 million on Sunday afternoon and shows no signs of slowing down.
So why is Charles experiencing a sudden drop in subscribers?
    It appears to stem from a feud between Charles and his longtime mentor and fellow beauty guru Tati Westbrook.
    The drama started in April when Charles posted an ad for Sugar Bear Hair supplements to his Instagram story. Turns out, that brand is a huge competitor for Westbrook's supplement brand, Halo Beauty.
    She accused him of being unsupportive and said she felt betrayed. Charles later apologized to Westbrook in a statement posted to his Instagram story.

    Then on Friday, Westbrook broke her silence and posted a 43-minute video to YouTube explaining the feud and her decision to cut off her friendship with Charles.
    In the video, she accused Charles of spreading lies about her and called him out for saying hurtful things about other people in the beauty community. She also mentioned an inappropriate comment he made about wanting to hook up with a straight waiter at a restaurant, disregarding his sexual orientation. Charles identifies as gay.
    Charles apologized again to her and her husband in a YouTube video on Friday and addressed the points made by Westbrook in her video.
    "To Tati and James Westbrook I'm sorry for everything that is going on, everything that I've put you through over the past few weeks," Charles said.
    "Most of my career over the past few years has been about me making mistakes and trying to learn and grow from them. I haven't always done the best job of that, I can admit that," he added. "But I have always tried."
      The internet seems to have sided with Westbrook for now. She appears to be gaining subscribers just as fast as Charles is losing them.
      Here's a live subscriber count, just in case you're trying to keep track:

      Source: CNN

      • Jeffree took tati's side by tweetting about "Bye Sister" video..
      • James uploaded a new come back video and uploaded it on 19th May 2019.
      • Tati is loosing subs now while James is gaining
      • Jeffree star is expected to upload a video on 20th May
      So much TEA!

      4 Tips to Follow When Planning a Successful YouTube Channel

      It takes a lot of time and effort involved in making a successful YouTube channel and chances are high that you won’t become an overnight success. Building a successful YouTube channel requires a blueprint so that you can stay on track. Here are four tips to follow when planning a successful YouTube Channel.

      Tip #1 – Define Yourself

      Before you can start to create your blueprint, you need to know who you are, what you like, and how you want to present yourself to your target audience. Defining yourself and creating your brand is critical for creating and maintaining a successful YouTube channel. You need to focus on something that you're knowledgeable or passionate about. As long as you do what you love, and do it well, you'll be able to attract an audience. There is no end to the things that you can do on YouTube, so go out and find your path.

      Tip #2 – Define Your Capability

      Content on YouTube that has a higher production quality tends to get more views. However, it is possible to make great content at all levels of production; you just need to find a way to take advantage of your skills and the equipment that you have. You won't be able to shoot the epic fantasy battle scene if you only have an old camcorder from the 90's, but you could use that same equipment to talk about or review an epic fantasy battle scene. Make sure that before you start to plan and create content that you take your gear and capability into account first.
      But my suggestion is that, make use of what you have and when you start to earn from YouTube then is your time to invest in high end gear.

      Tip #3 – Define Your Audience/ Pick a Niche

      The most important part of having a YouTube channel is creating a good relationship with your audience. It will single-handedly decide your success or failure. Everything that you do needs to be focused on building your target audience. As you develop a relationship with your target audience, you'll start to build demographic information that can help you tailor your content so that you can appeal to a broader audience. Pick a audience , pick a niche 

      Tip #4 – Create a Content Schedule and Stick To It

      The key to starting and maintaining a successful YouTube channel is consistency. Upload strong content regularly is much more important than having infrequent, mind-blowing content. Regular content can help keep your audience’s attention on your channel making it much easier for you to develop a relationship with them.

      Starting a successful YouTube channel isn't tricky. Keep these four tips in mind as you plan your YouTube strategy, and you'll be well on your way to finding YouTube success.

      “A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again “

      Mistake #1 – Avoiding Your Audience 

      Like it or not, your audience is the only reason why you have a YouTube channel in the first place. Without them, you will never find success. If your audience asks you questions or leaves you feedback in the comments section of your videos, then you need to reply to them as often as possible. You need to make sure that you respond with thoughtful answers that fit the question being asked. The more that you engage with your viewers, the more connected they will feel with your business.

      Here, I can give you a pro tip…..Instead of just saying “Thanks!” etc. I would usually end my sentence in a reverse question. For instance,

      The Jasmine Bloom: Book of the Day (5)

      The first thought that pops up into mind when you hear the title " The Jasmine Bloom" is that, there might be a fragile human trying to grow out in life (Bloom), more of less - Yes, this story is all about it but with loads of shocking twists and turns. May be it's all about the ugly choices we adults make. At some point it still cranks me up that adults needs a different mindset at-least when making a life-decision because regret makes it worse of all.

      So today I am going to review "The Jasmine Bloom" Book by the Author Mr. Rajat Narula. You can find this book on Amazon, Google Books, Good Reads Etc....

      Paperback: 232 pages

      Who would I recommend this book to: If you are not into ugly side of the world and more on the white side of the world then this book is not for you. I know few people who would like to keep off complications, even if they are in form of stories. But if you are a regular reader then there's something that might interest you. Far and far, it is not a bad story just undigested twists :D

      What is this story about? : About 2 couples, living their lives until they overlap each other. Each one of them displays different mindsets, traits, past experiences, present situations, unhelpful thoughts, supportive friends, fishy colleagues, desperate desires and none the less revolutionary actions

      My thoughts on this book?: Overall it's somewhere close to reality. Because you never know what you heart says and what your mind says. It makes it difficult to make a choice! But it's not only about how their lives revolve and overlap. Mr. Rajat has made sure to include reality based routines and life examples. For instance how one can always hear their neighbors soap channel in the evening. Or

      Two Angels : Book Of the Day (4)

      Two Angels : Book Of the Day by alex o connor

      A love story in it's delight. I have seen and read several stories and when someone is terminated by illness, usually all authors tend to use cancer as it's cause which is to be honest very boring and unrealistic. There is undesirable amount of pain and process hidden behind the cancer patients and their family, supporters. Even if 1 of the 100 stories is legit , it doesn't feel like it because the reason becomes too saturated! I'm glad that the author (Nivedita Vedurla) didn't not use the too obv
      ious reason.
      Today, I am going to review "Two Angels" Which is a love story. I came across Nivedita (Author) through a social site and I decided to look it up with the book. I'm glad to cross paths with her. It's like a book can bond two people. That's real!

Could he have found love only to lose it all to fate? Will he survive the loss? The answers take him back to Esha, and to the realization that love comes in many forms. This story is a journey to love through friendship, from loss to hope. "

      My Review:
      The cover is really interesting, I like the 3-D effect of the water drop. Along with the book, I got 2 bookmarks! That's the number one pleasure of any book reader. What's a book without bookmark? Saturday night 11 PM I decided to start reading the book. After going through the acknowledgment , segregation and dedication I read the summary. I thought to myself - "ummm.... is this the start of story?.... Kinda sad.. poor guy" Then starts the real deal.
      The story revolves around a guy named Arun and a girl named Esha but with an Indian flavor mixed with

      The Goat Thief : Book of the Day (3)

      perumal murgan the goat thief book review by alex o connor

      Start from the start? Haha here out my review of " THE GOAT THIEF by Perumal Murugan " (Oh, I did not have to struggle to get his name pronounced right, after all we have been to Tamil Nadu AND we got some south Indian flavor in us too) Inshort this book revolves are shot strories compiled into one package combined with juggernauts!

      Comprehensive review:

      When I received the book, looking at the cover page ‘PERUMAL MURUGAN THE GOAT THIEF’ suddenly the title strike to me as "A goat thief was Lord Subhramanaya" (Son of Hindu God Shiva known as Murugan, mostly popular in South India especially Tamil Nadu) until on later realization. 
      I also found it head-up difficult to understand the title as I read  - "Perumal Murugan A Goat Thief" all in once line. But that's not the case. They should have included a slant line between the name of the author and the name of the book. 

      This book is regulated towards natives, regular readers or people with travelling as a hobby, people in search of fresh short stories or for collection can sense the region (as Tamil Nadu) and chances for connecting more with respect to imagining the description of setup, relating to childhood days, comparing the resembling characters and much more with these stories.

      Buy this book from Amazon


      Discovering the rare subjects and with keen observations the story revolves around by a thrilling end or I would rather say - with an ending open to readers imagination. After completing the book, I was stuck with a thought in mind that "in this world every existing (human) has a different journey. And the author has narrated the selective collection of ten stories beautifully in a compact way, for us to rejoice and take a glimpse of the some.
      If you didn't yet notice then, this is a translated book. So I should say that the translator has restored the essence of the stories and its naturality. And the efforts made by translator can be sensed while reading.

      the goat thief review by alex connor
      Each story defines the setup around, the characters driving through menace and story progresses while dealing with life journey, heave sight of relief or to a state that cannot be explained or some taking pleasures and stops with open ends.

      The book is divided into several short stories and out of them ‘The Man Who Could Not Sleep’ and ‘Unexpected Visitor’ in both where the characters long for the relations longevity at later phase of life.
      The Night The Owls Stopped Crying’ was haunted and exciting.

      The Goat Thief’ story progress after the failed attempt of a thief. And in the others, Character in the stories revolves around different Objects like-Chair, Well, etc. Putting together, one can get the feel of the story only after reading it and here it goes into the collection of Short Story lovers.
      But I will not suggest this book for children and new readers.

      At the start of the book even before entering into stories mode, the following phrase caught my attention the most:

      “Looking at the finished Kolam from a distance, you may feel that something is amiss. A stray flower, picked up and placed at the center, can erase the flaw and bringing perfection to your doorway.”
      I wouldn't rate it 5/5 and will not suggest it for newbies at all but keep up the gyan ';)

      Hope you guys felt this review was useful, show some love by letting us know in the comments. Kudos!
