The most important thing you need to know about your YouTube channel, and where to find it

YouTube Subscribes Maketh YouTube Channels.

As we may have mentioned before, the best way to make the most of your YouTube presence is to put in the work. Time and effort, my friends — that’s the key!

It’s hard to put in work if you don’t know where to direct that effort though, so where does one start?

The first thing every channel owner should do is try to fully understand their presence on YouTube. So, that means learning everything you can about your channel, including:

  • the video count
  • average views
  • demographics
  • earnings
  • ad types
  • and more

But one of the most important details to know about your channel, as well as the most effective ways to guarantee consistent viewership, is subscribers.

Why is it so important to understand your subscribers?

Being the responsible channel owner that you are, I’m sure you have that subscriber number burned into your brain. But, where did your subscribers come from? Was it your artistic framing of Bucky The Cat cleansing his unmentionables? Or the gripping visual tale of grandma falling asleep over her french onion soup? And how did those particular subscribes make it to your page in the first place? What were they perusing that ultimately lead them to YOUR collection of brilliant videos? Knowing this will allow you to tailor your channel to your most active demographic and, hopefully, garner more subscribers than ever.

Enter the Subscriber’s Report.

You’ll be relieved to hear that YouTube has just released a new feature under Interaction Reports that will allow you to become an expert on your subscribers. Check out the YouTube posting for all the details.

Learn your channel, know your channel, love your channel —because if you don’t, who will*?
