Why is YouTube an important platform?

Video and consequently Youtube, success will keep growing year after year.

Beth Djalali, from Style at a Certain Age, started her YouTube channel in 2014 but only started creating content regularly at the end of 2017. After less than 4 years she is the perfect example of how to build a community using multiple channels with over 13,418,680 views on her channel.
