I’m excited to share with you what I’ve learned from posting 66 shorts in just two months on YouTube.
I’ve recently gone all in on short-form videos, including YouTube shorts, IG reels, and TikToks. And today, I want to talk about my experience and the results I’ve seen.
First off, I have to say that diving into short-form videos was a great decision for me. I felt it was the right time to do it, especially since I got accepted to the Instagram bonus reels program and was about to be monetized. So, from mid-December to mid-February, I posted a total of 66 shorts, including mini vlogs, separate short-form pieces, and even some pieces from my long-form videos.
I’ve been wanting to vlog for a while, and these mini-vlogs have been great for capturing my daily creative juices and giving viewers a glimpse into my life. I upload them on Instagram, where I do the captions, then download them and post them on YouTube, TikTok, and Facebook.
So, let’s talk results. These 66 shorts have led to 27,890-ish views, averaging 422 views per video.
And for someone with just over 1,100 subscribers, that’s significant. I’ve also gained about 83 subscribers from the shorts alone, which is a big deal for a channel my size. Moreover, my channel has grown by about 200-250 subscribers in the past two months, and I’m pretty sure shorts played a big part in that growth.
One thing I’m still struggling with is finding the best time to post. I’ve tried posting at different times of the day, and some videos did better than others. But I still can’t seem to crack the algorithm. My takeaway is to keep trying different times and not be afraid to repost a video that I think could do well.
Overall, I’m really happy with the results of my short-form video campaign. It’s been great for my channel’s growth and momentum, and I’ve enjoyed making these bite-sized pieces of inspiration and creativity. I’ll definitely keep exploring and experimenting with different ideas and trends as I continue on this journey. Thanks for reading!
