tips and advice on how to promote yourself on youtube?
Well you came to the right place for that. Firstly we will keynote individual points that are important steps you should try and follow in order to further help get more views/subscribers and exposure on youtube.
We will touch on these keypoints in more detail below. We will explain in as much detail as we can for each of the keypoints listed!
First step is an easy one to explain, you basically need to be yourself, so say for example your not always being yourself to please others around you. Well you need to try and be yourself, how you are when your alone! be more open and also friendly!
So what do we mean by be outgoing? Well we mean be more open and honest and be friendly and try to communicate in the best way you can within your niche your working in for your channel!
So this is a totally 100% obvious thing every youtuber should be doing. For one using social media has so many benefits, not just in terms of spreading the word.
But it is also a good way to meet new people and make friends too! There is many social media platforms you can use this day and age and new ones open all the time, but the main sites to use is Twitter, Facebook, Instagram.
Social media tips!
On twitter it is a must to like/favourite tweets as much as you can. This is an important way to gain new followers, because every time you like or favourite a tweet, that user gets to see that in the notifications section. Most of the time they click your name from it and maybe you get a new follower!
On facebook it is important to join groups that is in your niche, and post to the group with info about your channel and content.
Finding a niche is and can be very difficult to do, because it involves researching and doing your homework, unless your picking a niche that you already have your heart set on, even if that niche is saturated already.
Question: So what do we do when a certain niche is saturated already?
Answer: well not much to be honest, but below is a few tips to guide you through!
If you have already found a niche for your channel and content, then you can ignore this keypoint.
Finding a niche is very important, because if there is not that many channels
with the same or similar niche as you, it can give you authority in the niche you pick.
So say for example you pick a niche that thousands or even millions are already using, then that makes it more difficult to get more exposure,
because your then competing with all those thousands or millions already in the same niche.
So if that is the case then you then need to work out some sub niche topics you can then pick within your niche and do content around the sub niche topics.
Thus not as many in that sub niche.
But if you find a niche that hardly anyone is doing content for, then your pretty much on your way, but you still need to make thus content fun and entertaining and follow above keypoints too.
In case your wondering why this is a keypoint, wonder no more.
Commenting on other youtube videos from other users can help get more exposure, if you make comments that are meaningful and relate to the video and are not spammy in context.
Then this is sure one other way to gain new subscribers, because if your comments get rated up by others, they then get pushed to the top, and thus increases your exposure.
Also what else can sometimes help is reaching out to other youtubers, this is also another top way to get new friends,
just don't come across as desperate in your messages to them, just be yourself!
Well this is a tough one to explain, because there is so many content topics you can make videos for.
But for example, say you make a video in your niche and you watch the video and it is boring to watch.
Well then you would need to decide what more could i do to make it more entertaining, well that is down to the actual subject the video is about.
Because if the video is about subjects that are not very entertaining in the first place, then it is hard to make it more entertaining. A few tips would be, just try to make them a bit funny, make them seem that it was not intentional and just try and make them stand out, make them as less boring as you can!
I know what your thinking, that wasn't exactly tips, well it is difficult to give tips in general for this keypoint, because it matters greatly on the actual content of each individual video.
So your wondering why joining forums will help?
Well wonder no more, joining forums within your chosen niche helps greatly in gaining more exposure.
There is no need to be excessive either in the fact that all you need to do is be yourself when you do join these forums, and make your posts.
Most forums give options to add signatures where you can put links in, and in some forums they have sections where you can post your channel links too!
Just try it out and i am sure you will gain more exposure using this method. It just can take time and effort, but it can pay off if you stick at it.
So we are at the 8th and final keypoint in this blog.
So where would i give this as a keypoint for joining a YouTube Network, well i do say this with caution, it can be beneficial to join a
YouTube Network if it is a trustworthy one and does not have any minimum contract periods.
