September 1, 2018 Reply The Art of War Made Easy Cool man. I was in denial about this, but after hearing you, I have to get more engaged, even though I don't really get comments yet. lol – but the Facebook groups that help my views could afford to hear from me a little more often in hopes for more subs September 1, 2018 Reply Nathan Panke Great series September 1, 2018 Reply Construction Kronies 💖Thanks for another video Tim! Looks like fun being able to interview these amazing people. Your the best Tim! 💖 September 1, 2018 Reply Rhellz This definitely made me grow so much!!! September 2, 2018 Reply JWAG2G first XD September 2, 2018 Reply Thrift Diving While I don't think that responding to each comment is a huge strategy for getting to 1M subscribers, I do agree with you that responding to all comments is important to customer service. My channel is at 154k now and its hard to keep up with comments. I don't have a team yet aside from an assistant in the Philippines. I had her responding to my comments but where that became a problem is when she responded to people that personally knew me. It felt very impersonal for them getting a response from someone other than me. So now I make sure I take care of comments, and even if i am behind in responding, i try to get to everyone personally. While content is what drove getting new subs, perhaps engagement keeps them around. 🙂 ~Serena September 2, 2018 Reply The Nguyen Family I have always replied to every comment and my subscribers notice it too! They are so happy to know that I will reply to them and engage with them no matter how busy I am. I now get around 100 comments per video, sometimes more if the video goes viral, and I still manage to reply to them all. I 100% agree with this! September 3, 2018 Reply The Nguyen Family I really am enjoying this series, Tim! September 3, 2018 Reply Javier Mercedes Yeah!!!!! Shot out to William Knelsen channel at 4:14 ! September 3, 2018 Reply Robert Wimer Is it possible to check watch time minutes, viewer retention, etc. on other channel videos? September 3, 2018 Reply Tajammul Gul Well, just watching it makes me feel obliged to leave a comment. So here it is. September 3, 2018 Reply Kids Colors thank you for your video, and for your sincerity👍🏻 September 3, 2018 Reply Professor Nez Lead should be Led in the title. Past tense brother 😉 September 4, 2018 Reply HACK THAT HABIT Tim! Great stuff my man. Not sure how but I almost forgot about Evan's channel. Very glad I caught the first half of this series so far as I'm about to start my own channel. HIGH QUALITY info for anyone out there looking to grow (or it seems to a youtuber-to-be). September 4, 2018 Reply Whats in Michaels Bag. Fab Show as per guys. September 4, 2018 Reply vidIQ We can confirm this. Evan has popped into several of our videos just to say hi and we really appreciate it when he does! Being recognised by the video creator builds relationships, earns trust and compels the viewer to watch more, engage more and, who knows, invest more! September 4, 2018 Reply Pancho R Bro i just hit 100 subs i stared August 2018 September 5, 2018 Reply Nature Now! - Chris Egnoto The ONLY time I ever get a response from any of these companies or channels that help YouTubers is if I give them money first. I contradicts their mission statements entirely. I have called, written and emailed five different ones multiple times each and it's always the same….no response at all. Small channels mean nothing :/ Not to mention it's all the same lessons in the videos. I am just annoyed with the false impression I got. I will keep at it alone, but I will remember. Good luck and God bless! September 5, 2018 Reply Café Stifflered This is so TRUE! I've only been really pushing with my channel for the last few months, but I find that the times when I get in and make a point to chat with my viewers in the comments, and not just say "Thank you." or something generic, is when I see the most growth right now. Those people come back and keep leaving comments and we're building community. It's great! September 5, 2018 Reply Hussein Nasser Been a week. Where is the rest of the series 🙁 September 5, 2018 Reply Alison Russell's Craft Channel I now have 90,000 subs and I have commented on almost every single comment even if it is just a thank you for watching or a thumbs up, The ones I miss which is very few is due to other people commenting on the original comment. I have all comments held for review just for the sole purpose of commenting to say a thank you. One thing to add recently I have been naming the person Thank you, Alison or thank you, humpty dumpty etc. It makes it so much more personal and by just tweaking this naming my subs are growing to 1,000 per week because my subscribers recommend me to others.After all its nice to be nice, they take the time to comment or ask a question I should take the time to answer. September 6, 2018 Reply John Cordray Thanks again, Tim and Evan! September 6, 2018 Reply Papered Chef I love how you have a team to help you reply to every comment. I'm a one woman show and love to reply to comments but I can understand how time consuming it will be if I keep on growing. Thanks for all of the tips. September 9, 2018 Reply Bernardo Branco Thank you for this, I don't comment a lot, but I should… Especially seeing as I'm trying to build my own channel, it's just a personal thing I have to try and fight against I guees September 10, 2018 Reply COOLtureZ Starting with 0, today posted my first video and hopefully got into 1mil someday 😊😊 thanks!

I am writing everything down. 🙂 Thank y'all for doing this. September 21, 2018 Reply Hyde and Seek I love hearing this. One of my biggest fears is getting too big to respond to comments. I am all about relationships and youtube is no exception. September 28, 2018 Reply Hapa Family I'm loving this video series! Thanks so much for sharing all this wonderful insight. 🙂 September 28, 2018 Reply Kyle Hall woodworker These videos have been a big help in growing my channel! Thank you !

I love to engage October 1, 2018 Reply BRIGHT SIDE DISCOVERY Good point love seeing negative comments so I can improve October 1, 2018 Reply evataubskincare Thank you to both of you, learning a lot from you both. Thankkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk youuuuuuuu October 3, 2018 Reply Tattered Passport 100% Responding to comments make a huge difference. I always love a response from a Youtuber that I have enjoyed their content. I know how much it means to me, so I make sure all comments on my channel are responded to. I even make sure any comments that I have left on someones channel, if people respond to it, i respond to them. ie: I was watching a NatGeo talk the other day on Antarctica, someone asked a question and hadn't received an answer, understandably as it is NatGeo, they are huge. So I answered and they responded a simply thank you, which i hearted. This is a simple way to create a community around your channel. The people that would watch your channels content, watch the same content as you, so it could end up with a new subscriber?

October 7, 2018 Reply Run of Anubhav Thanks for sharing the amazing knowledge. 💖 October 15, 2018 Reply Jonny Trinham In responding to every comment how should one respond to negative comments that are just out right nasty. October 15, 2018 Reply RoamerRealm Early days in my youtube journey to not find time for replying to a comment lol…most days go by waiting for that comment notification to show up :/ Thanks for the video though, it was nice! 🙂 October 27, 2018 Reply Sonny Evans Tim, I like this series. I like hearing the stories of creators, what their journey is like.. But I also want to know about the fact that Evan gets 2.5k views with 1.5 million subscribers on a video where he talks about Stan Lee's passing (a trending topic). I am not ''hating'' on that he talks about it, why not right? I would just like to know how and why, even when everything should be in his favor to gain massive views, he simply doesn't get those views. This same phenomenon applies to you and your channel as well. Please, talk about that (and subscriber burn out is out of the question here, even if that was the case, the numbers should at least be 10% of your viewer base right?). November 14, 2018 Reply Milo & Stefanie Do FL Oh man I get so many mean comments — I write back and defend myself (nicely) — but I don’t want to alienate anyone from commenting December 4, 2018 Reply Mike Still Inspirational. Thanks Tim. Binge watching this series! December 10, 2018 Reply Shelena Shares The first comment I received I ran around the house telling my daughter and my dogs were so excited also! But I still few comments but I always respond. January 6, 2019 Reply Tiffany’s Bunny Gang Ok this makes me feel better! All of my videos get 10 comments + I reply to every comment, it’s so important! May 3, 2019 Reply Tiffany’s Bunny Gang I see small channels that don’t reply to comments, not even a heart. I don’t get that. Engagement is so important!
