Salman Noman Reaches 5 Million Followers in 5 Months on YouTube

Salman Noman has reached more than 5 million subscribers in just 5 months. This is a dream for every creator on the web to learn a bit more about him and how he achieved this in such a short time.

Salman Noman was interviewed and shared how he has managed to achieve this success.

Shorts, the new YouTube format key for his strategy

Shorts are one of the most successful features that YouTube has launched recently. This new format covers videos under 60-seconds with vertical or square proportions and is being promoted widely around the platform.

Users enjoy watching content that they can consume fast, without putting too much time into it while having fun with it at the same time. That’s where Salman Noman has found an opportunity to reach engagement levels never seen before.

He completely changed the course of the channel leaving aside the old videos of around 10 to 15 minutes to release only Shorts. That doesn’t mean that the traditional formats don’t perform well, but for comedy-based content, a format closer to TikTok works better.

Building such a huge audience around Shorts requires publishing frequently to keep the momentum and stay in viewers’ routines. Some videos will indeed become more viral than others, but remaining a potential interest to the audience is always important. The potential reach will be higher with every new Short.
