If you are thinking you don’t have the natural Talent to be a YouTuber or maybe you have a channel, but people aren’t watching your videos because you are not talented think again, its all about the metrics. With the metrics strategy YouTube will promote the heck out of your videos hence more views and subscribers.
The metrics strategy is a formula that you can follow to start getting views to your channel. It really doesn’t matter whether you are just starting out or a seasoned YouTuber. This strategy will heal the same benefits.
The effect of this strategy, however, differs with different niches. That is, depending on the niche you will get different numbers of subscribers and views to your channel.
For example; a channel based on pranks will get more views and subscribers following this strategy than say my channel that is based on tutorial video.
That is very obvious because very few people really want to start a YouTube channel as oppose to pranks that everyone loves to see how people do stupid things.
So, the number of subscribers will be subjected to the niche and the type of content you are making.
Having said that it is important to note the value of subscribers in a targeted niche channel like a workout channels and tutorial channels.The subscriber value in these channels, will be more than that of a prank channel.
For example, the subscribers on a make-up channel are more valuable than those on say a reaction channel you get the point
Warning (Only for those who are Serious) If you are not serious about making videos consistently on your channel, then you can as well just drop this and move on to the next shining thing, whatever it is that piques your attention more.

– Rules for the Metrics strategy to work
You have to upload videos consistently at least 3 times a week for the next 3 months.
The reason is that the YouTube search engines constantly reward channels that upload videos consistently by promoting the heck out of the channel videos. The more you upload, will also keep your viewers coming for more
– Do not start monetizing your channel just yet.
The reason being YouTube doesn’t like when people click out of their platform and if your channel is doing that from the beginning, will only send a negative signal to YouTube that people are leaving your content because it’s not good. So, you want to avoid that by limiting or not monetizing at all.
– Always get your viewers to watch more of your other videos.
The metrics strategy will help you get more views to your channel but you have to keep the viewers engaged by watching your other videos. Use playlist, cards, sections featured video to keep your viewers watching more. (Will look more on this under structuring content for more views)
