This article came about because one of my Blog Readers and Twitter Followers slid into my DM and popped the question… how can I get more views with 0 Subscribers? So, I decided to Write an Article on it.
Before we get going, I want you to understand that the more views you get the more Subscribers you’ll get, YouTube Views are responsible for growing your subscribers especially when you’re starting and have 0 audiences.
How Can I get more Views with 0 YouTube Subscribers?
If you want to get more views with 0 Subscribers, you’ll have to create high-quality videos around trending topics in your Niche and there’s no other way to get those topics than by using your intuition and YouTube Trends.
I was able to get 500 Subscribers and 89,000 views in my first month on YouTube using this strategy, just to prove that it works today.
How to Get More Views with 0 Subscribers
Like I said earlier, if you want to get more views even with 0 Subscribers on YouTube, you’ll have to create High-Quality Videos on Trending Topics in your niche before or a little bit after they blow up.
In my case, I was in the Football Gaming Niche (Gaming is like my passion), so I created content around the most popular football games like Pro Evolution Soccer, FIFA, Dream League Soccer, etc.

Here’s what I did to get 89,000 views on YouTube in My First Month:
- Scouting my Competitors.
- Explored Trending Topics from YouTube Trends.
- Created the Best SEO-Optimized Video on the Topic.
Scouting My Competitors
At first, I was just creating random videos hoping that one of them will go viral but it didn’t happen.
So, what I did was search for a Game that I love playing on YouTube and compiled a list of Gaming Channels that have uploaded a viral video on the topic, and then sort the videos on their channel by popularity.
Now, I had a list of videos to make which are guaranteed to get me more views because YouTube doesn’t rank videos because of the number of Subscribers a Channel has.
Explored Trending Topics with YouTube Trends
The Second step I took was to make a list of Games that I wanted to make content around and I made sure I was good at playing.
The Names of these games are Seed Keywords for my Channel and I plugged them into YouTube Trends.
I noticed that whenever a new football game is released (usually towards the end of the year like FIFA and PES), people would start searching for Gameplay videos on different gaming devices (PS5, PS4, PS3, Computer, etc).
That was a void I needed to fill and l created this channel around September Time, which is when most of the new releases of the best football games for the next year are done.
Some keywords needed content around them as soon as possible (before they blow up) like FIFA 22 Gameplay PS5, PES 22 Gameplay on XBOX, etc, you get the Idea.
Created the Best SEO-Optimized Video around my Selected Keywords
This Tool helps me focus on Off-Video SEO Optimization like uploading a Crystal Clear thumbnail, Adding my Keywords in my Video Title as well as Description, adding relevant tags to the video, and adding the video to a playlist amongst other optimizations.
At the end of the month I ended up uploading 90 YouTube Videos, 60 videos, and 30 Shorts, the shorts were mainly cut out from the long-form videos.
The key takeaway from this article is that you should take advantage of seasonalities in your niche and create videos around to-be-viral keywords before your competitors do so because they’ve been around longer than you and YouTube trusts them better.
