To everyone saying it's only because Twitch:

The actual genius of this concept is that not only did he prove a point about channel marketing and how to blow something up, he also made himself content for his main channel AND he made free content for mizkif. This whole idea got him 3.3m views on his main, 1m on the new channel, and 600k views for mizkif. Ludwig is a content wizard with his ideas.

Hey, I just want to point out while the content itself was definitely top notch and that there is definitely a lot of skill that goes into it, there is still the issue that it usually takes a catalyst before a video takes off from a small content creator. If it wasn't for that shoutout from Miz the video would have most likely not have been picked up by the algorithm. Luck does actually play a huge role in the algorithm and there are thousands of qualified content creators that make fantastic content that go unnoticed because they haven't been given a chance yet.

I think we can all agree that this video demonstrates that there is a lot of know-how that goes into making Youtube content. He had a great idea for a video, solid skills for managing the video's meta content (thumbnail, etc.), and he had a good plan for getting that video some attention. However, we can't simply look past the fact that this video cost him ~600 USD and years worth experience with youtube, editing tools, marketing platforms/ideas, etc. If you're a brand new youtuber with no bankroll, you will never see an explosion of viewers like this unless you get very lucky.

To be fair, it really was a good video and it really was good marketing strategy with a little bit of luck. I could think of a 100 things that could’ve gone wrong but at the same time I could think of a million ways this videos would not have been successful had he done the whole strategy differently.

Getting attention from a streamer is basically a cheat code and one time luck. Someone should make a similar experiment, but without baiting streamers and with more videos, getting organic views over the course of several months.

This was probably the masterclass on Youtube anyone who wanted to be a creator needed. Thanks Ludwig!

I think most people are not willing to spend $50 on such an extremely risky move. For you, there was no risk, but for small channels, they can't be sure that spending money would help their channel grow. Really, you relied so heavily one streamer, which was pretty lucky.

Just so people aren’t writing file title essays on their computer, just know that YouTube fixed this so file names no longer impact SEO! :)

This is showcasing the one thing all youtubers hate, advertising yourself on someone else's channel. Lol. This was a good video still but I do think it's a lot more on luck. Of course, making a great video and the strategy of trying to get a streamer to watch it is good. I mean tho, I can't say Mr. Beast is wrong because he knows the ins and outs of YouTube.

So, the secret is to have an amazing editor, $50 to promote to Ludwig, and leech off other twitch stars.

This was a genuinely interesting video! I loved how he showed the process of how much effort he put into the video and the "secret channel". And even better he kind of successfully proved his point.

So funny that Ludwig, an insanely popular internet celebrity, is getting that same adrenaline rush that new YouTubers get. Constantly refreshing the watch counter, scoping the like count, etc..

This is literally a masterclass on communication. This video will teach you more on social media than any bogus class in college will.
