If you are aspiring to reach out to your target niche through YouTube, you have to ensure a sizeable number of views and subscribers for your YouTube channel. More views and subscribers you get, better will be the opportunity to monetize the channel and broaden the exposure of your brand. But, how to get more YouTube views? Well, here is a brief on what 25 top marketers shared about growing your YouTube channel, views and subscribers.
Enhance watch time
The maxim is simple. Longer your viewers stay on your video, better will be your opportunity to showcase your ads and the USP of your brand to your potential audience. Now, of course, longer watch time means you have to make the video really engaging so that viewers are compelled to watch till the end. But before everything, invest in a catchy trailer that will pull in viewers in the first place. Don’t forget a strategic CTA button at the end of the video that will inspire viewers to subscribe to your channel.
You should optimize your videos with relevant keywords that complement the search terms of your target niche. The keywords should ideally be in video title and description. You must also use them throughout the video content if possible.
Double optimization will help
It would be smarter to optimize your video not just for YouTube but for Google as well. This way, your video will be on top when your target niche will search for related contents on Google- apart from searching on YouTube.
Before you publish your video, check out the keywords used by similar videos on YouTube. Use these keywords on your video so that your video comes up in the list of “suggested videos” when viewers check those other videos.
You should actively participate in the YouTube community to make yourself get acquainted with other YouTube users. Comment on and like their videos and they are sure to return the favor.
