I also understand the importance of not trying to learn more than one social media channel at one time. After all, the only way that you can really learn a platform is to immerse yourself into it.
However, I’m here to tell you that you don’t want to make the mistake of getting all your traffic from just one source. Yes you should focus on 1-2 social media platforms, but you don’t want to have tunnel vision when it comes to growing your blog.
Especially, when videos is the fastest growing method that people prefer to learn from. The cool thing is that you don’t need a million subscribers to start a YouTube channel.
Just like blogging, you need to acquire patience and stay consistent with creating videos. Before you know it, you’ll have a loyal following on YouTube.
You don’t necessarily have to start your own YouTube channel today. But just keep in mind as your blog starts to grow, it definitely won’t hurt to branch out to other traffic sources.
It’s important to keep learning how to diversify and grow. The great thing is that you don’t have to do it alone.
Listed below, you’ll find some awesome YouTubers that you can follow and learn from. I’m going to introduce you to my top 20 YouTubers that I’ve found online that I believe will be beneficial in helping you grow your online empire.
