Being an influencer means you need to be active on a daily basis no matter what so as to reach your audience and grow on social media platforms organically and you need to keep a check on your subscriber count as well because that is what matters.
Keeping your follower count on track also helps you in getting good deals with different brands because they prefer influencers with a good amount of reach of audience.
On the off chance that you can show 50-60k individuals buy into your follower list, 1M individuals reading your blog monthly, and practically a large portion of people follow you on Instagram, you’ll be in an exceptionally solid situation to order a major paycheck with every brand you deal with.
So, what if I tell you that we at Hobo.Video are here today with a guide that contains all the necessary steps you need to take in order to check your subscriber count on all the major social media applications such as, YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitch, Twitter, etc.
Checking your followers and subscribers on each platform could be a tedious task but we are here to make it simple by letting you know all the steps you can follow in order to check your subscribers.
Let’s start with talking about YouTube:
According to the Google Support Community, the following are the steps to check your subscriber count on YouTube:
- View your recent subscribers
- Sign in to YouTube Studio.
- Find the “Recent subscribers” card on the dashboard.
- Click “See all” to expand the card.
Tip: You can even choose a timeframe and sort the list by subscriber count (lowest to highest or vice versa).
YouTube is a platform that celebrates your achievements by mailing you about the milestones that you hit, from 100 subscribers to 1M subscribers.
- Which subscribers are shown?
Subscribers show on your recent subscribers list if:
- They chose to make their subscriptions public.
- They subscribed to your channel in the last 28 days
- Which subscribers are not shown?
Subscribers may not show on your recent subscribers list if:
- They chose to keep their subscriptions private
- Their account is suspended or identified as spam.
Although there are various websites and applications to check your Instagram followers, more or less active followers, or even fake followers but the most reliable of all them has to be the Professional Dashboard on Instagram.
If you are a content creator, then Instagram must be your go-to app and it is so important for influencers to keep a track of their followers, how many new followers they’ve got or how many of them unfollowed or what post is trending, or even what kind of people are following them if they are mostly men or women, from which country they belong to and they can even track the age group of their most active followers.
All this is possible with just one Instagram feature which is the professional dashboard.
Using the professional dashboard on Instagram, influencers can track their follower count on a monthly basis and fortnightly basis as well. They can see how many accounts interacted with them if they are the new followers or old ones.
Pretty easy, right?
All you need to do is tap on your profile and on the top, you’ll see “View Professional Dashboard”, tap on the link which will then redirect you to your insights page.
Now let us hop on to the next social media application which is Snapchat.
Snapchat has now started offering a feature in which you can make your profile public. That means you can create a profile just like any other social media application and people can follow you, see your stories, go through your day and be a part of your virtual world through your snaps.
All of this means, you can now show people how many followers do you have. Snapchat was once against this but now it has changed its opinion.
To explain why this change was made, a Snapchat spokesperson provided the following comment to Tubefilter:
“We’ve listened to feedback from our creator community and many of them expressed interest in having the option to show that their community on Snapchat is growing.
So, starting today, we are giving creators the option to make subscriber counts visible on their public profiles.
We understand not every creator wants to have public metrics visible to their fans. Therefore, creators can choose to toggle this metric on and off as needed in their settings.”
Now, let us talk about the other famous social media applications such as Twitter and Facebook.
If you have more than 10k followers on Twitter then, you’ll be able to see your exact number of followers on Twitter but if you have an audience of more than 10k people then you need to head to the analytics page on Twitter and there you can check your
- Tweet activity
- Number of followers
- Twitter cards, and much more.
All you need to do is be consistent while posting your content and grow organically on this platform.
Facebook Business Page proprietors should explore their page, click on the “More” tab, and afterward “community” in the dropdown menu. Here you can track down your complete followers’ count, what they have posted on your page, and any posts where your business page was labeled/ tagged.
Being an influencer is not an easy task as many people think but loads of energy, time, patience, and hard work goes into it and we are just making the task a little easier for you by taking you through the step-by-step guide of keeping in check your follower/ subscriber count which is a necessary thing to do being an influencer in 2021.
