Ever wondered what are the most liked video on YouTube? Here are 20 most Liked Videos on YouTube and what you can learn from them.
Couple of weeks, back, I wrote a 5000-word step by step guide on how to make money from YouTube.
As the ex-founder of a video-only media company that raised $2 Million in Pre-Series A funding, I can tell you that YouTube is a fantastic platform to start making money online.
Many YouTubers make millions of dollars in revenue and even if you cannot earn millions, you can definitely earn few thousand dollars a month. These are some of the top paid YouTubers in the world and you will be shocked to know how much money they make.
As you might know PewDiePie is one of the most successful YouTubers ever and PewDiePie’s net worth is estimated to be over $25 Million.
After I got kicked out from the company I had started, I now consult many startups and even individual YouTube creators for growing thier channel.
I have been able to deliver incredible growth for a YouTube-client on mine over the last 30 days.
With more than 400,000 additional views than average, my client is very pleased and from the beginning, I’ve been telling him that he needs to ask people to Like or Subscribe to his videos.
One of the most significant factors in growing your channel and ensuring you are able to make money from YouTube is “Likes”.
The first step to get Likes for your videos is to make people click on your thumbnail so that they watch the video. You can read this post on some of the best YouTube thumbnail generators to create thumbnails for your videos.
You can think of “Likes” on a video as a signal to YouTube algorithm that the audience really likes what they are watching and that more people should be watching these videos.
This is the reason why often you will find YouTubers asking audience to “Like” or “Subscribe” to the video so that the video reaches more people and the channel grows.
If you always wanted to start your own YouTube channel, then study the videos on this list which are some of the most liked video on YouTube and try to understand why they got so many Likes.
