I discovered Cassie Thrift Thick during one of my Periscope sessions. Someone  mentioned that I needed to check her and her 100% genuine and detailed reviews out. I watched a few of her videos and was really intrigued by her format.

She included a vlog in the middle of every single one of her product reviews. She also uploaded a ton, it was obvious this woman was serious about her YouTube channel! I couldn’t get over that vlog intermission in her videos, it was a really smart and creative way to show insight into her world while still pertaining to her “niche” of detailed product reviews for oily skin. It wasn’t until my interview with her that I realized why she was doing that, and it completely made sense. She wanted people to see exactly what she was doing throughout the day so they understood what the makeup she had on her face was encountering whether it be heat, wind, humidity, etc. Brilliant.

We talked about that and more in our interview together. which you can listen to on iTunes or clicking on the pink bar above. Fortunately, I was introduced to Cassie by Jen, whom I had interviewed a few months prior. They are friendly and Jen said, you HAVE to interview Cassie! The rest is history. 🙂 I hope you enjoy the interview!

Cassie’s Five Tips How to Grow Your YouTube Channel Fast Thrift Thick

Cassie discussed five distinct tips for fast YouTube growth during our chat. Interestingly enough, Cassie has been a YouTuber for quite some time, but it wasn’t until she started implementing these tips that she really saw her channel take off. Below is a brief summary of the five points, make sure you listen to the entire interview for details and more incredible tips!

1.) Be consistent and upload often.

Cassie switched to an upload schedule of 4-5 times a week. At that point, she said she saw a big jump in her channel subs and views.

2.) Be genuine and honest. 

The cornerstone of Cassie’s videos is that she is brutally honest about the products. Her viewers can trust her opinion and the integrity of her reviews is incredibly important to her and her audience.

3.) Keep people watching the entire video. 

The more people watch your video, the higher google ranks in search. Watch time is incredibly important in how your video and overall channel is ranked. Make sure you keep your audience engaged and give them a reason to stay until the end.

4.) Create videos of trending topics.

Cassie has chosen to review brand new foundations along with trending products, which has helped her get discovered through YouTube search.

5.) Add Variety Within Your Videos.

Here is an excerpt from the interview I thought was interesting and is related to this point.

“I think it feels kind of an unconscious decision. And I have been noticing people actually do watch my videos all the way through. I think that it is because it’s not all one note. Some people will do a haul or they will do favorites videos and they won’t show the clothes on or they won’t show the product close up and it’s really flat and it’s easy to get bored, so people will click out and that is understandable. I think with my videos, that’s why I try to do a lot of cutaways and showing things close up because it keeps people visually interested. It’s nice to have it not just like one note throughout the whole thing.  You’re watching me read about the product, you’re watching me put on the product then you’re watching my vlog then you’re watching a check in,  it’s different every few minutes and that helps.”

Those were the five tips that helped Cassie grow her YouTube channel fast. They are relatively easy to implement and are super important when thinking about starting or growing your YouTube channel. They are tips that you can continue to go back to as you grow your channel and add more content. YouTube success is pretty basic, but of course complicated! You want to attract people to your videos and keep them watching as long as possible. These 5 tips will help you to achieve that! Please comment below your thoughts and if you use any of these tips for your channel!

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the interview: How to Grow Your YouTube Channel Fast

Knowing that I can be that person where, if someone is feeling down or if they’re not feeling great, they can  watch a video of mine and be able to smile for 10 minutes, it warms my heart in a way that I cannot even describe.
