The Time around 2015 was a prime time for Indian Youtube Creators because of Jio’s outbreak of a 4g affordable data package.

How did he do it? So, in one of his interviews with Vivek Bindra, a motivational speaker, Gaurav revealed some of his insights about his content creation. Gaurav revealed that instead of just creating bland content about technology, he wanted to make it simple for people to understand. It was tech content, but it was for an Indian audience.

Also, he could start creating content and use the English language instead. But, he kept using Hindi as the language for communicating with his audience. Gaurav was making tech content for the masses of India, and it boomed.

During the interview, Gaurav revealed that he was approaching his audience as a “bada bhai” or a brother. He took the camera as a communication window through which he talked to people casually about technology and in simple language. He took advantage of the fact that there were many Tech Channels on Youtube, but not many of them were using Hindi as their language.

Right after starting his channel on Youtube, Gaurav touched the milestone of having an immense following on the platform. He was almost becoming a celebrity, and people were interested in his personal life as well.

So, in 2017, Technical Guruji created his channel named ‘Gaurav Chaudhary’ which was his personal vlog. Currently, he has 23.1M subscribers on Youtube, along with more than 5K videos on the platform.

Aside from making content for the Indian audience, he was also doing lots of product giveaways making more people engage with him.
