EP 59: Your First 1,000 YouTube Subscribers: Case Study Interview with Marissa Romero
One of the toughest parts of building a successful YouTube channel is just getting your first 1,000 subscribers.
Once you hit that coveted 4-figure mark, the algorithm takes over and (as long as you keep posting consistently…) practically grows your channel for you.
But how can you get those first thousand??
Everyone does it slightly differently, but hearing their stories can help you figure out the best path for YOU.
On today’s podcast episode, I’m interviewing YouTube creator Marissa Romero, who’s successfully grown a channel of 120,000+ subscribers in a competitive niche.
We’ll talk a little about the strategies she’s using to grow it these days… but we’re going to focus mostly on how she got started.
