Frequently Asked Questions

What is a YouTube milestone?

A YouTube milestone is a significant achievement or marker of a channel's progress. These milestones are typically quantifiable and represent key aspects of a channel's growth and success. Common examples of YouTube milestones include:

  • Reaching a certain number of subscribers (like 1,000, 10,000, 100,000, etc.).
  • Accumulating a specific number of total video views (e.g., 10,000, 100,000, 1 million views).
  • The number of videos uploaded (e.g., uploading your 10th, 50th, 100th video).

Do I need to share my milestones?

It's up to you; there's no right or wrong answer. However, we'd recommend you share your achievements for three reasons.

  1. It's a great way to connect with your audience. When you share your achievements, you're not just showing off numbers but inviting your viewers into your journey. They get to see the progress and effort behind your content, making them feel more invested in your channel.
  2. It helps you keep yourself motivated. Every milestone is a testament to your creativity and resilience and a clear sign that your hard work is paying off. Celebrating these moments can give you a sense of accomplishment and motivate you to keep going, especially during tougher times.
  3. It can inspire others. Your journey can motivate your viewers or fellow creators to pursue their own goals. It shows that with dedication and creativity, success is achievable on YouTube. In a way, your milestones can transform you into more than a creator but a figure to follow and emulate.

What type of milestones are there?

TubeBuddy's Milestones track achievements related to three metrics:

  • Subscribers
