I've been working hard to build Aerial Bliss' following on multiple platforms. We have our website (now with blog), Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube. Admittedly I am horrible about posting on Instagram and Twitter, and the Pinterest account is brand new. I have been working on our YouTube channel for a while though. You can check it out at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiDXcX1PjViOi8RgO_SlRrQ? I mainly post pole dancing tutorials on our YouTube page because I want students to be able to review when they are working on their pole at home, and to help people who do not have access to a pole studio for whatever reason.
Back on August 8th my channel had 8 subscribers and a Social Blade grade of D+. I got those subscribers by putting out decent tutorials and sharing them on Facebook, and occasionally other outlets. My channel's low numbers were a bit disappointing based on how much work I put into it. I made myself a goal to get to 100 subscribers within the next 6 months. Why 100? It is a nice round number and more importantly when I reach 100 subscribers I can request a nice neat custom URL instead of the long gibberish I have now. I turned to Facebook and pitifully begged my students and friends to subscribe. Using this tactic I made it to 33 subscribers and a Social Blade rank of C-. Woohoo!!! I was moving up. For fun last week I made a short 30 second twerking video. I shared it on Instagram and got some positive feedback. A few days later I thought, what the heck, and uploaded it to the YouTube channel.
What happened? Well, in the two days since I uploaded the video I have gotten 18 additional subscribers. I am currently at 58 subscribers and have move up to a C grade on Social Blade. In just 2 days that tiny twerking video has gotten over 500 views and I wasn't even promoting it. All this just proves the old saying "sex sells".
