50,000 Subscribers

Florin Pop @florinpop17

Today I want to share with you a small (big) achievement! 🤩

🔥 50,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel! 🔥

I started posting on YouTube in November 2019 and the target for 2020 was (and still is) to reach: 100,000 subscribers. (50% remaining) 😊

Since I started I have posted a total of 105 videos and made 139 Live Streams.

Although I had a great start with 20,000 subscribers in about 6 months, in June-August I slowed down a bit, only reaching the 30,000 mark in these 3 months (it was probably because I didn't continue to upload so many videos as I was before).

But everything changed recently when 3 videos (and a shoutout) brought me 20,000 subscribers in about 2 weeks.

They were 3 coding challenges:

  • 10 JavaScript Projects in 10 Hours
  • 10 JavaScript Projects in 1 Hour
  • 10 Websites - From Design to HTML/CSS

It seems that the mysterious YouTube Algorithm liked these types of videos and decided to promote them significantly.

In fact, the first video reached almost 200,000 views (a total record on the channel!).

It has been a crazy journey so far, but the show must go on! Still 50% left to achieve the goal for 2020! 😁

    Congrats Florin! That's super inspiring growth for such a comparatively recent start.

    I'm also thinking of live streaming coding on YouTube - any specific tips you'd give re: discovery or just making the stream interesting for people?

  13. 1

    That's great news. Congratulations!!

  14. 1

    Congratulations Florin, I also started at the same time but now with the 500+ subs, which is also great given I haven't really spent time.

    Would you like to share what worked for you, apart from those crazy challenge videos? I know you went from 30K to 50K in two weeks which kind of crazy but that's what happens when Youtube's massive algorithms find you.

    What is your average watch duration and what is the watch duration on those challenge videos?

    P.S. - How do you create such kind of text based post here? I only see option to share links and here is the link to our youtube channel -
