AngryAussie On How To Make It Big On YouTube

First off, this is a LONG video - clocking in at around 45 minutes, so you will need to kick back and relax. Secondly, if you are looking for this video by AngryAussie to hold your hand and lead you step by step to the promised land of massive YouTube fame and fortune, that's not what this video is about. Plus, AngryAussie may not be for you either if you are not prepared to be shouted at. That's not a bad thing either - he is not all abuse and vitriol. He is not afraid to be loud and in your face, but when you get past HOW he says what he says, the WHAT he's saying makes a lot of sense.

The first part of this video is about his visit to England and some of his experiences over there as well as announcing a second channel he is setting up - sort of an "AngryAussie-Lite" where he is "a little less angry" lol. A lot of the allure of his main channel is that he slams those who exhibit stupidity in all it's forms, politically, in comments and life in general as he sees it. Most of his videos are not this long, it's just that he had a lot of information to cover on this one.

The description he attached to the video says it all: "Hint one: if you can't sit through this video for the advice, you don't deserve to be big on YouTube. Because you have to work at it. If you don't have that dedication, you aren't going to make it big."

It is the 2nd half of the video where he goes into detail about the work needed for any sort of success on YouTube, be it moving from 0-100 subscribers, to how to handle any and all criticism - there will be criticism good and bad. You need to interact with your proposed audience with better content as well as in comments - and in real life. AngryAussie, like many youtubers, goes to large and small Youtube events and gatherings and meets his audience as well. The amount of fame and fortune that you will get from YouTube (and elsewhere, for that matter) will be directly proportionate to what you put into it.

During the video he also mentions that he quit his job and is trying to make YouTube his livelihood. Check out this post I wrote back in July when he posted that video: AngryAussie Quits His Job & Makes YouTube His Day Job.

AngryAussie currently has 23,161 devoted subscribers (and I'm one of them). Get past the angriness and you will see that he makes valid points. Most of his anger is directed to life's idiots and his advice boiled down is - DON'T BE ONE.
