The secret of Lauren getting 8.8 million subscribers and many million views on YouTube

Lauren Riihimaki is a sort of legend on YouTube, with her channel clocking 8.8 million subscribers. Many of her videos have been viewed more than a million times, and the total viewership of her videos runs into nearly a hundred million!
Lauren had not been into YouTube; in fact she didn't know much about the medium and had not even watching videos that were shared on YouTube. She was happy with her Do It Yourself (DIY) blog on which she posted tutorials based on her experiments in her dorm. Creating stuff out of household items had been her craze. But then things changed when she felt that she needed to put video tutorials on the blog. And then she realized that nothing could be better than YouTube for vlogging, and she shifted to it.
Initially it was hard for her, but she acted according to a well-conceived strategy: she weaved entertainment with DIY and persevered with her work. She went on to start videos in series, which became popular. She then started investing into the craft. Now she has a team to support her, including camera professionals and video editors. She has her studio. She and her team spend many hours even for a small video. A small video of a chat with a personality, she is reported to have said, takes no less than four hours and a normal video more than ten hours! 
Being consistent has earned Lauren loyalty from viewers. She does not forget to post a new DIY video every Sunday at 9AM, and her fans wait for her new videos. After sticking with Sundays all through, she has added an entertainment-based video on Wednesdays.

Lauren now also has a buzzing Instagram account. She has said in her interviews that she has always believed in making a brand rather than just getting popular and making money - the philosophy most YouTube video creators follow.
