Helpful tools, websites, and platforms mentioned

To startup and to grow a YouTube channel might take a lot of time, effort, patience, and often money. We should create good, compelling videos, and they have to capture an audience at the right time! But sometimes, if our fortune works, something can go viral and end up on peoples’ related videos and recommended videos too.
