Here's what I need your help with: a few months ago, I've started a YouTube channel called "One Minute Economics" and as the name suggests, I'm basically explaining economics-related concepts (from simple stuff such as inflation and deflation to more complex topics like fractional reserve banking) through entertaining one-minute animations... well, at least I hope they're entertaining haha.
At the moment of writing, I have 16 videos and will try to publish two per week from now on.
My best video currently has 5,244 views, the second most popular one is at 3,849 and I have a few right around the 1,000 view mark. Not too shabby, especially for a channel that hasn't been promoted properly yet but I want to take things to the next level.
When I'm not actively promoting the channel, it averages one new subscriber per day.
The only meaningful promotion I've done so far has been submitting some of the videos to Reddit. One of them (the fractional reserve banking one) ended up on page 1 of the bitcoin subreddit, had some on page 1 of less popular subreddits. While none of them went amazingly viral, they did ok.
What can I do to promote the channel aside from the Reddit thingy?
1) Any decent Reddit alternatives you can recommend?
2) What else have you done to increase the traffic of your YouTube videos?
3) Are there any decent paid services you'd recommend?
