While some YouTube videos go viral and catapult their creators to instant popularity, it takes more than a viral video to call yourself a success. So, what does it really take to succeed on YouTube? With a plethora of videos coming from YouTube content creators all over the world, how can you gain audience loyalty and support?

“At the end of the day, it’s the people that enjoy your videos that you’re making them for.”

Find out the answers to these questions from 23-year-old beauty expert, Alexandra, as she shares her YouTube journey and tips for how to succeed on YouTube. She started her YouTube career right out of high school at age 18, and her channel, AlexandrasGirlyTalk, has been a tribute to her younger, more awkward self who had a budding curiosity for all things girly.

“There’s so much negativity that can happen by being on YouTube, but there’s also a lot of good.”

She used to get made fun of for being and looking different so, she started experimenting with her looks. This led her to realize that she’s not the only girl who wants to know how to take care of her looks and how to take control of her beauty so, she started making videos. Now, Alexandra currently has 1.9 million subscribers and 222 million video views.

“If you really believe in what you’re saying, you definitely want people to see what you have to say.”

How has Alexandra managed to succeed on YouTube?

Well, Alexandra says that first, you need to figure out what makes you unique. You have something valuable about you that you can share with people. Once you’ve found a way to communicate that in your videos, you’ll have taken the first step on the path to success.

“It becomes a monster of a thing that’s so beautiful but also so ugly when you don’t stay true to what you want.”
