When my brother started his YouTube Channel I told him one thing.
The Game Starts at 100
What did that mean? It meant that we couldn’t draw any conclusions about how well things were going until he had done 100 videos.
That’s a lot of videos, but the idea was that he needed to get the concept of consistency of showing up into his head.
When you become a creator it becomes much too easy to fall into the trap of thinking that the act of creating itself is what will bring you success. It won’t.
Creation is just part of the process. Most of it is analyzing the numbers and to analyze numbers accurately you need a lot of data.
The more data you have, the more accurate your assessment.
If you want to be a YouTuber then put your focus on your first 100 videos.
This also helps out your mindset because if you do 5 videos and worry about the results it’s very easy to lose yourself.
You think that it just isn’t working out when in reality you haven’t given it enough time.
However, if you do 100 videos then you would think that you would find some type of traction.
If not then maybe the YouTube thing isn’t for you but it probably still is.
Let’s reframe this another way.
If you had all of the time in the world to figure out a simple problem (how to build an audience) then do you think that eventually you would solve that problem?
Hopefully, you’re saying yes.
In essence, you have more time to find success than you think.
Knocking out 100 videos will give you plenty of time to learn what you need to do for success.
This is why the game starts at 100.
Never at 0.
