FLexing in 2014

It's fun to set targets for the new year :D

But content counts more than numbers. Make a channel interesting, and the views and subs will come. Of course, promotion on social sites helps, and if I didn't take advantage of them, I'd be a fool. Still, if you keep the fans happy, they will share your videos, and that's the best kind of promotion!

Overall, I want 2014 to see more flexers and their channels featured on FL. That will mean a lot of new videos, because several guys are now regulars - some even have their own playlists. We'll also see some old faces back again.

It's impossible to predict when new guys will come along, so I won't put a figure on that. We added fifty new flexers last year, but even half that number wouldn't be bad.

Regular uploads count though, so I'll be making sure we add at least a dozen new clips per month, or around 150 during the year. That would tot up to more than 350 videos on the channel.

As we almost got half a million new views in 2013, we have to bust that and get 500k+ in 2014, which will bring our all time total to over 1.2M - I'm sure we can do that.

Subscribers are already up 100+ since new year, so I'm also confident we can add around 2.5k to get our subs total over 7,500 by December 31.

You can help, too! If you like FlexingLads channel, then subscribe if you haven't already. Share the channel with friends, especially on Facebook and Twitter. Share your favorite videos, as well - easy to do using the buttons under each clip. And remember to visit the flexers' own channels, enjoy their other stuff, subscribe and share!

2013 was good for FLexing!

Overdue, a review of last year, starting with what our stats reveal...

In all, FL videos got 473,170 views - almost half a million! That was more than double the the 226,687 we got in 2012, and took total views to 715k.

What's more, every month of 2013 showed a gain on the corresponding month of 2012.

In subscribers, we went from 2,833 to 5,110 - a net gain of 2,277, or +80%.

FL added many more videos and flexers, too. As of end 2013, we had 208 clips, compared to just 59 at the end of 2012. 90 channels were represented on FlexingLads, whereas just 40 had videos on our channel linked to their own at the close of 2012.

Overall, then, FL doubled its YouTube presence during 2013, reflected more in content and views than in subs, but with healthy growth all round.

What will 2014 bring? I'll discuss some targets in the next post.
