SO, keep all this in mind, but the fun fact even with this much saturation, one can easily came up with good content and definitely make a voice of his/her channel and make it stand out among crowds.

These are the 3 Mantras….!

  1. At the Early Stage put the content , you should somehow need to give importance to quantity rather than quality , let me say till (100,000 subscribers) till you got transaction.
  2. The first step a lot of time needed.Once you finised the first step you almost done.
  3. Once you got traction and audience don’t settle try to improve your content even 1% per video .
