Since its release in 2017, Fortnite has become the most talked-about game in the world. As of today, teenagers, musicians, and athletes alike are obsessively playing, watching, and discussing it.
As a result of the publicity, many people were influenced, and they started filming themselves playing, resulting in a huge amount of views and wide audiences in just a few months. On YouTube and Twitch, there are several channels dedicated solely or primarily to Fortnite.
SerpentAU has been a phenomenal Fortnite player in his field since starting at the age of 15 and amassing up to 650,000 subscribers in a relatively short period of time. His YouTube video titled “Legends” has received over 10.5 million views, which is a huge achievement for a 17-year-old.
What Makes SerpentAU Unique?
Many YouTubers have already made a name for themselves, but then along comes this guy, who is not just thinking about himself but also giving back to his community.
SerpentAU began an initiative after his success to share his YouTube experience and promote small channels. He managed those accounts, and the results were eye-popping.
For you to get a better understanding of the life of this successful and selfless teenage YouTuber, we asked him about his strategy to help grow your YouTube channel, and this is what he has to say;
“I find the latest trends that would fit with their niche and capitalize off that. I do all the research, find all the charts, compare trends and find what is best. For my clients, if you would like to call them that, I tell them what type of videos to do. I provide all relevant metadata such as titles, descriptions, tags, etc. I also bring in sponsorships, promotions, and brand deals wherever I can”
Isn’t that a lot of work to get through? Who would, at this age, give up his sleep to help others grow?
You must be considering what he gets in exchange. We both had the same concern, so we posed it to him. What he said after that astounded us;
“No, I do not take a cut from any of this. Honestly, I am just a teenage YouTuber looking out for other teenage YouTubers.”
We were blown away by this young man’s attitude towards his community, and we’re sure you’ll be just as excited to learn more about him.
We asked him what he has on his mind as he embarks on his journey as a YouTube channel guide, and he gave us a thoughtful response;
“I want to be someone easily approachable, someone you can ask for advice from when you are stuck and don’t know what to do.”
We were taken aback by his response, but even more so when we looked up the channels he was in charge of. They amassed over a million subscribers together, with one of them even surpassing SerpentAU himself.
The most important aspect of assisting others is that it must always be unconditional, which is something SerpentAU has always believed in. He has used his power and platform to bring attention to small-scale content creators without expecting anything in return.
It is no doubt that promising content creators should always be given a platform to put out their content on. SerpentAU has displayed extraordinary skill in the field of Fortnite, catching up with viewers and subscribers in the nick of time.
In this age of online recognition, it is important to maintain human virtues as well. Empathy and kindness are frequently feigned, making it all the more important to recognise the dedicated and hardworking content creators.
