If you want to be a successful small business owner, you have to look for innovative and creative ways to spread the word about your products and services without spending a fortune. Since you may not have the capacity to pay for ads, you have to make do with available resources like YouTube and try to increase the number of YouTube video views.
How do you increase these views? You can either try to grow organically which takes a lot of time, especially if you aren’t running ads, or buy YouTube video views. There are lots of misconceptions surrounding the latter, but the truth is, if you buy these views, you attract more trust and confidence which are two important factors for a strong vlogging foundation.
With time, the number of organic viewers will surpass the number of purchased, so everything balances out. You really don’t want to waste your time trying to grow organically when you can buy views to kick start your journey now, would you?
But if you want to choose the organic path, here are some things to consider. Shall we?
How to increase YouTube video views
1. Create great content
This sounds pretty obvious, doesn’t it?
But you’ll be shocked at how a lot of vloggers don’t put in the effort to create good videos with great content. The problem is either the content or the video. Either the content isn’t direct or straightforward or filled with too many fillers, or the video has poor production quality.
If you want to get more organic views, you have to put in the effort. Your content has to be worth watching and sharing. Remember, YouTube ranks videos based on engagement, watch time, and audience retention, and these three factors largely depend on how interesting or valuable your content is.
2. Video optimization
It’s not enough to want to be a YouTube star. It’s not enough to create a YouTube channel. It’s also not enough to want to create one or two videos. You have to learn the basics of optimization if you want your video to rank.
When optimizing, there are a lot of things you have to look out for. The first thing is the keywords. You have to incorporate short-tail keywords into strategic places like the thumbnail, description, titles, and tags to boost your ranking chances.
3. Promote it everywhere
The people who are successful at the thing you’re trying to do aren’t successful because they are the best. They are successful because they know how to get their content in people’s faces the most. So, if you want to compete with them, you have to promote your content EVERYWHERE.
This is why it’s so easy to share content from YouTube. If you have a Facebook page, share it there. What of Twitter? There too. Do you have an email list, remind them of the videos constantly. Share it to your various Whatsapp groups. Spread it by word of mouth. Do you have friends with large social media following? Tell them to promote your brand.
People won’t get interested until you put your business in their faces.
