Growing a YouTube channel and getting more subscribers has got to be the dream of any video uploader. Some find this very difficult, but the task can be easier if you know how and put in a bit of effort.
Get Your Name Out There
Be an active member of the community, and you’ll get noticed and get subscriptions. Watch and comment on people’s videos and channels regularly, and be up to date with YouTube’s society. Don’t be afraid to take risks. Be sure that you don’t spam other channels by promoting yours in the comments.
Interact With Other Channels
Do dual commentaries or get a co-host. Commentate with another, related YouTube channel in a single video. Feature another YouTuber in your video. Some of their subscribers may decide to start following you.
Keep Up With Subscribers
Give shout outs and share your subscribers’ videos. Offer giveaways and hold contests if possible. Viewers can return the favor by sending other viewers and potential subscribers your way by recommending your channel.
Submit Videos To Community Channels
Be active with the members of a community. You might get noticed and offered to join a group, such as Machinima. Viewers of the community will notice you and just might subscribe.
Be Active On Your Channel
Post videos often. Your YouTube channel is like a plant; you must continue to water it and make sure it has ideal conditions. Failure to do this results in the death of the plant, just like it can be the end of your channel. Set up a regular schedule to which you post videos; upload a new video, say, every Tuesday, or every three days.
Make It Professional
Invest in recording tools, such as cameras, lights, microphones, and tripods, and learn how to properly edit. For example, a common mistake made by beginners deals with audio. They decide to add in a song to go with a video, yet the music is much louder than the dialogue or commentary. Problems such as this are sure to turn away subscribers.
Thousands of videos are published to YouTube every single day. Yours has to have something to make it stand out or else they will get lost in the waves of never-ending uploads. Do something a special way, or do something that can’t be found anywhere else on YouTube.
Your YouTube channel won’t get hundreds of subscribers overnight… or not yet, at least. Keep following these tips and uploading videos. You can never have success if you give up, can you?
Keep up with YouTube news and trends, as well as these tricks, and your channel is bound to grow.
