Promoting your YouTube video is important. Why all that hard work and effort if no one is going to watch it? There are several ways to get people watch your video, none of which are guaranteed. You can’t make people watch, but there are things you can do to increase the chances of your video becoming a success.
To get likes, views and subscribers, the Tube Toolbox is the best tool you can use. It works on your PC to promote your videos while you wait or work on something else.
The easiest manual promotion tool is found in the Share icon. You can email you video to everyone in your Friends category. If you have a lot of friends, who also have a lot of friends, this can be very helpful in promoting your project. However, do not overuse this option. If your friends are constantly getting stuff from you, they may cease to open anything from you, making it very difficult for them to watch it.
Another option is to create links from other websites to your video. When doing this, it is a good idea to use sites that are in the same genre as your video. Putting your death metal rock band video on a Fixodent website may not yield the best results. Also, try to create links on high traffic sites; if more people see your link, then more people may watch your video.
You want to make sure that when potential viewers see the icon for your video that they are intrigued. Making the title and description as unique and interesting as possible. Keeping your video fairly short will also ensure that your audience watches the entire video. It is recommended that the video should be no shorter than 30 seconds, but no longer than 2 minutes, to keep viewers from getting bored.
By using these techniques and the tube toolbox, as long as your video is at least mildly interesting, you just might get someone out there to watch your video. If it’s really good, there is no telling how many people could become part of your fan club.
