If you want to run a popular YouTube channel, you should undoubtedly keep an eye on how many subscribers you’re getting. In fact, YouTube won’t even let you monetize your channel until you’ve reached at least 1,000 subscribers, so knowing where you’re at is essential. We’re going to talk about how to see your subscribers on YouTube and how fast you’re gaining them.
How to See Your Subscribers on YouTube
There are a few steps to see how many subscribers you have on YouTube. Here are the steps to do so.
Step 1: Log In
First things first, you need to be logged in to YouTube in order to view your subscribers. So, log in and then click your photo in the right-hand corner to see your analytics.
Step 2: Go to ‘YouTube Studio’
Once you’ve clicked on the photo, you’ll have the option to view your channel or go to the ‘YouTube Studio’. You’ll want to view real-time analytics for your subscribers, so you’ll need to click the studio option.
Step 3: Navigate to Analytics
While you can see your subscribers from the YouTube Studio dashboard, it only shows how many people have subscribed in the last 28 days. If you want to see lifetime subscribers, you’ll then want to navigate to the analytics section, found on the left-hand side of your screen.
Step 4: View the Number of Subscribers Over Time
When you reach the analytics section of your studio, you can then see real-time subscribers, who is viewing your channel, and you can also update the dates (in the right-hand section) to see how many subscribers you’ve picked up today, over the week, or even in the last 365 days.
This will help you understand how many subscribers you have in total and how many you’re gaining on a regular basis. And that’s it!
It’s important to keep an eye on your YouTube subscriber count and you should routinely check it; at least once a month! This can make it easier to monetize your channel or keep potential channel sponsors updated.
