Turkish Soap Opera Surpasses 1.1M Subscribers and 1B Views in Under a Year

Gelsin Hayat Bildiği Gibi


In the crowded market of Turkish soap operas, standing out and reaching an audience poses a significant challenge. Moreover, to maintain viewer engagement after a season concludes, it is crucial to keep uploading content until the next season begins.


Our strategy included timely uploads immediately after each episode to capitalize on peak viewer interest. We ensured that content was uploaded while the series was still ongoing, posting it to YouTube immediately after each significant scene aired on TV to maintain continuous engagement. Additionally, we created Shorts for every memorable scene to enhance accessibility and shareability. To keep users engaged between seasons, we continued uploading content, including compilation videos, even after a series had concluded.

Community posts significantly drove engagement and increased subscriptions to the channel. Polls were an especially popular format, resonating well with our audience.
