Hi guys,

I'm new to video marketing and looking for ways that actually WORK to get more views to my YouTube videos.

I can create great valuable videos but I want to figure out how to promote them before I invest the time and energy. I feel tat the advice on the net is pretty useless.

    Promote them on your social media channels and to your list.

    Cross-promote with other Youtubers can help a lot too.

    The main thing is to be consistent, and not expect massive results overnight.

    You'll get a lot of views from Youtube's search bar and from related videos - but it takes time for that to happen.

    Make sure your SEO is on point. Good keyword selection, and optimized content - just like any other piece of content.

    Or just buy advertising. Probably the quickest and easiest way.

    Yes as Michael says good SEO is very important.

    The 250 words you can use in the description area should be taken advantage of.

    I always have a headline that I am trying to rank my video for.
    (have this as the same title as your article and the video itself).

    Under the description list the keywords (as well as in the area for keywords).

    I have found that using this system - as well as publishing on Facebook and the other social media sites that a lot of my videos rank in the top spot on Youtube and also on Google as well.

    Write eye catching headlines. You can use the headline analyzer for that. Secondly use google and youtube search for topic predictions .In other words when you search out ideas google and youtube pretty much predicts what people will be searching for.Do your keyword search too. Use your thumbnails in your videos too.When you do find topic that is buzzing create a video series around to help keep the traffic flowing.

  • A truly viral video is elusive. It is a lot easier to create audience engagement and widespread social chatter through video stories.

    You don't need many views, the more targeted the better. Use keyword research tools, you can't go wrong with that.

    Part of this industry is just biting the bullet and doing the work. Not everything we do is successful. There will be failures and sometimes stuff just doesn't work out but the first step is diving in and doing the work.

    Another thing I have seen some of the top Youtubers and vloggers do is to create a series of videos on the same topic.

    Sometimes they will have as many as five or six videos on one topic.

    This is a good way to get attract viewers - someone might see video number 4 but then watch the rest of the series - so if you have a large series of videos it gives you more chances to attract viewers and build a good list of subscribers.

    There are a few FaceBook Groups on YouTube . . . some of them are just Sub4sub, but some of them have people which would be able to answer this for you, and people who are succeeding who you can ask etc.

    Hope that helps,

    I put a few videos up last year. Those that have done the best were targeting specific keywords. So keyword research for YouTube is definitely worthwhile.

    I should put some videos more up. I think I have quite a good trust rating on there or something, as my associated website is quite popular. So I could probably outrank lesser channels.

    Hey there. I would tell you to increase your subscribers. How to increase subscriber?

    You can promote your YouTube channel and videos on social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Then, you can also work with another Youtuber. Usually this will work better for some of their subscriber and viewer probably will visit your channel if they are curious about you. And never forget to use the tag. It helps the YouTube algorithm to understand what your video is about. Then it will be more visible to users.

    You could promote them via:

    - Your personal email autoresponder list
    - The people that's subscribed to your Youtube channel
    - Speaking with people in the comments section of the video
    - Offer prizes for your subscribers
    - Always say, "Please like, share, and subscribe" at the beginning and end of each video
    - Start a video blog and use RSS to have some (if not all) of your videos syndicated to sites in your niche
    - Good on-page and off-page SEO obviously
    - Share with your lists on your social media outlets

    Those are just a few thoughts for now

    I am subbed to a lot of successful youtubers with a lot of subs. And aside from having quality content that people are looking for, they all have one other thing in common...

    They use clickbait titles and clickbait thumbnails.

    You can also promote your YouTube videos by advertising on the platform. I recently promoted a video that saw an increase in 1,000-2,000 views within a week.

    It depends on your goal.
    Become famous first or make money/profit fast.
    The first one would be focusing on your content, and the last one is focusing on keywords.
    Then you can decide how to promote your videos/channel.
    You can do it for free using some social medias, or you can buy an ad to promote inside and or outside Youtube.
    There's also white or black hat way.
    So, it really depends on your goal.

    In order to be successful on You Tube you need to create daily quality videos/content or two new very long videos a week. You must adhere to a consistent video upload day and time so people keep coming back for the new episodes.
