How I Gained 100,000 Subscribers In 2 Weeks

  • Published: 13 July 2017
  • The past two weeks have been absolutely insane. I've been making videos on this website for months and for the most part, I was just making them for fun. I was averaging 1-5 thousand views per video, and I was pretty content with that. I knew growing on a new platform would be a slow process, and I had no problem putting in the work for a while before getting any real recognition.

    But then.... everything changed. YouTube started recommending my videos to people and all of a sudden I was gaining almost 10,000 subscribers per day.

    Want to know my secret?


    So do I.

    I don't know what happened lol. But thanks guys.


    In this video I struggle with the idea of overfortnight (a word I just made up) internet fame, and then try to maintain humility by diving into some of the hate comments and offering a few comments of my own. I guess you could say I'm "reacting to comments" or something like that.

    Please no one else steal this idea of reacting to mean comments, it's something I CAME UP WITH AND I WILL COPYRIGHT IT IF I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO. ORIGINALITY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ON THIS WEBSITE AND I HAVE 14 LAWYERS.


    spread your follows across the web:
    twitter -
    instagram -
    facebook -

    Want a special video just for you? :-)


    Did you see your comment in this video? Drop a comment below if you did! When I hit a million subs I will do another reacting to comments video, where I only react to the follow-up comments of the commenters that were featured in this video. I am the king of YouTube!!!
