Grapevine, a social mediation company that pairs brands and creators, has just published their annual YouTube growth report study. And while NMR has worked with Grapevine in the past, this is not some paid endorsement — this is just good knowledge from a company who had the access to quantify larger YouTube metrics.

And since we got to look over the study, titled The World of YouTube, we thought it would be decent to share it with you, the creators who help us tell stories every day. We want you to become huge stars because then we can interview you and get lots of views, that’s our stake in this. So when something useful comes down the pipeline, we tend to share the goods.

As Grapevine puts it: In this study, Grapevine leveraged its network of YouTube creators to paint a picture of how new media stars are created. This is the first of three installments providing insight into the World of YouTube. 1,861 creators participated. Using their responses we provide tips for You- Tube creators to develop compelling content and draw increasingly larger audiences.

This is the good behind-the-scenes stuff that will make you better able to run your channel. Here are Grapevine’s five observations towards making you a YouTube star:

As you maybe noticed, it says part 1 up there at the top. Usually that means more is coming. As we know more statistics about what makes for good YouTubing, we’ll share it with you. You can check out the entirety of the study (so far) here.

And share this because helping other YouTubers succeed is good karma.
