    The guy I hired told that he can do only 4 videos/week so I have to hire one more person to be able to upload at least 7 videos/week. This week was pretty bad as I was able to get only 1 subscriber. I am waiting for just 1 video to become viral to get to 1000 subscriber.

    Is the video content unique?
    Where did you hire the video creator from?

    I didn't hire the 2nd video creator yet. I am not able to find a person who is as good as the first one. From what I noticed the growth in FB is very less when compared to the growth in Youtube, this is contrary to what I assumed before. For the same video, I get a high number of views on my Youtube with 15 subs than FB page with 1800 likes. Still, I will continue to build my FB page as I do have to do anything extra than uploading the same video.

    I would not say that the video is entirely unique. Many people are making same kind of videos in the language and are having more than 100,000 subscribers
    I just made a post on my FB page regarding the requirement of a video creator and boosted it using ads. I solely targeted FB page admins in my region for this ad.
    The guy who contacted me is a college student who had a FB page and a YoutTube account already. He stopped posting videos in social media as they did not pay him. I offered him 50 bucks which he was happy to accept.
    This might not work in the US as the cost of living in India is very very less when compared to the US. You can also try this method and target people in India with age between 18 to 22.

    He initially agreed to make videos daily for 1 month for $50. But he was not able to manage it balance it with studies. So he is making 4 video/week for a month (18 videos/month). I didn't reduce his salary as he is doing a great job.

    Hope this helps.

    I have hired the 2nd video creator. So hopefully I will be posting 1 video/day as I have mentioned in the OP.

    Pro tip (if you've got budget)
    Post a video on FB that you believe could do well. Run an ad for views. Insert in the caption your YouTube link. Let the video go viral. Repeat it with some other video.
    This is how a lot of Indian viners got big. Ask me how I know ;)

    I am unable to contact the 2nd video creator. Good thing I didn't pay him anything upfront. This week I was able to post only 2 videos. I didn't have time to upload the video, so I made my 1st vid creator moderator of both the Youtube channel and FB page so that he can upload it directly.

    At this rate, I don't think I will be able to achieve my 1st target with the given time. But then I don't want to stop this Journey. This thread will run till I reach 1M subscribers.= even if it takes 2 years or more.

    I don't think it will work for my niche as it is not very unique.

    I do not want to share but the niche is entertainment. If you are from India you would have surely come across this type of videos.

    LOL

    Almost doubled the number of subscribers from last week. This is because 2 videos got good engagement.
    My video creator has not uploaded the videos to Facebook. So there is no increase in the number of likes.

    Dam, those Youtube subscribers numbers are climbing slow, that's disappointing.

    Good luck on your journey. Watching to see how this one will play out. Wish I could find a video creator for $50 a month.
