This is a lot of work! I have gathered that relying on the youtube algorithm to market your channel, it will take a lot of volume (35+ videos), so marketing your channel is important.

I've currently exhausted all my social networks, with the most recent boost was a video directed almost directly to my Facebook friends. I did a video in dedication to my alma mater: University of Iowa, and most of my FB friends are Iowan. I got a lot of support and a large spike in subs and views. Now I have an established Linkedin page, a facebook page, instagram account, and I tweet here and there.

I feel like this is the foundation for the ability to get out my videos before the channel becomes "self sustaining". Self-sustaining to me is when you'll get a large amount of dedicated views, and youtube will continue to market your page to people that youtube thinks will like your content, AND you have enough content for them to dive into for a long time (screen retention = advertisement real estate).

Still fun and still learning!
