Here’s why Mr Beast is a GENIUS - How He Grew his YouTube Channel

  • Published: 18 December 2019
  • How is Mr Beast growing so fast? How Much does Mr Beast make on YouTube? In this video, we get to the bottom of Jimmy Donaldson’s rise to the top of YouTube!

    Mr Beast has become one of the fastest growing Youtubers in history, but it wasn’t always like this for Jimmy Donaldson. In this video, we dig deeper and find out the reasons for Mr Beast’s rise.

    Two years ago, Jimmy Donaldson was filming videos of himself on his iPhone 5 in his bedroom, today the 21-year-old from North Carolina runs one of the fastest growing YouTube channels in history. In fact, every single video Mr. Beast has uploaded in 2019 has over 10 million views. Something no one before him has achieved

    The first factor I want to highlight is how Mr Beast has turned himself into a viral video making machine. Mr Beast has truly cracked the viral formula which allows him to make video after video that get onto the trending page. So, what is his secret?

    Now of course, it’s not just as easy as that. Making videos that have the potential to go viral and going viral are two different things. How is anyone going to know your video is a viral hit in the making if no-one sees it, and that brings us on to factor number 2, Mr. Beast is beating the YouTube algorithm.

    Ok so onto the final two points, these are going to be much less detailed but equally as important so make sure to stick around. Factor #3 is the fact that Mr Beast understands the importance of the growth stage.

    I want to finish up with the final point, Mr beast has proven Positivity can win on YouTube. I think sometimes it’s easy to view youtuber’s negatively. However, Mr beast is a perfect example that by being a genuine, positive and likable person, you can still rise to the very top of this platform.

                    Hey :) Do you think I should start a new youtube channel or use the one 9 years ago. It has 2 videos and they get 1000s of views still but the subscribers are mostly inactive. Thanks for the help :)

                                    It's easy.. Clickbait, Clickbait, Clickbait. You said it yourself, he's generating about $600k a month, yet he's "given away" over $3 million in the past month. The numbers don't add up. He's not really giving away the money. He's a likable person, but most of his videos are staged and clickbaity. Like his "Spending 24 Hours In Prison Challenge", which was a single jail cell they hung out in with takeout pizza. Prison and Jail are two completely different things.. I clicked on the video thinking he'd actually be put in population in prison, but it was him in single jail cell they basically rented out. No different then staying in a Motel 8.

                                        Edit: 1 Million Views will reward roughly $2500

I would just mention one thing and it's that he could invest everything back into videos because he started out as a crypto millionaire. That's hard to do otherwise so it hurts your growth.

(yes i know right now he is on his first break in like his entire career lmao) but all props to mr.beast
