We’re only a few years removed where people will recognize the names of online stars before they recognize the stars of the silver screen.

If you haven’t heard of Pewdiepie then you’re up for a surprise and a little bit of confusion. Here’s the skinny; Pewdiepie is the biggest channel on YouTube raking in $11,000,000+ annually and is run by Swedish native, Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg. What are his videos of? This is the kicker, they’re simply of him just playing video games.

You may wonder why that’s even a thing or why so many people would flock to him. You may sit there thinking it’s the dumbest thing in the world that people would spend countless hours just watching someone else play a video game. You can wonder and doubt the legitimacy behind a channel such as this, but the formula is simple and this is why he’s successful: be a friend to your audience. That’s it. People watch him playing games because for the viewer, it feels as if they are there hanging out with Pewdiepie (who refers to the camera and viewer very often).

Another way Pewdiepie is able to drive his growth is that he's maximized the YouTube algorithm. YouTube awards watch time and will reccommend channels and videos that have a lot of watch time. Pewdiepie uploads almost daily and his videos are around 15-20 minutes long. Because of this he has massive amounts of watch time and viewer retention, thus being rewarded by YouTube's system and getting more exposure. This takes a lot of growth to begin to game for yourself, but it is good to be aware of it.
