your Research team applied the following Strategy:

In order to identify five to seven of the fastest growing genres of content on YouTube from January 2018 until now, we began our search through trusted databases which provides YouTube statistics and media sources and blogs. SocialBlade, Kedoo, BusinessInsider, and Forbes are some of the domains we looked into. Most of the information that we found were regarding the top YouTube channels and most subscribed YouTube channels among others. We were unable to find data pertaining to 'the fastest growing YouTube genre'. Following this, we decided to identify the fastest growing channels in terms of subscription (from January 2018 until now) as proxy data to the whole genre.

Using the platform SocialBlade, we were able to identify the fastest growing YouTube channels in terms of subscription from January 2018 until now. We triangulated the data by gathering the current number of subscribers and then subtracted the value by the number of subscribers from January 2018. Further, we also identified the top channel in each genre.
