Chap. 2: Laying a Foundation


Your videos are of high quality, and you're uploading them on a regular basis thanks to a well-oiled machine. A great place to begin and one that will help you get the most subscribers from the number of views your video receives. Some additional things you can help your viewers sign up for additional content are listed below.


Develop "sticky" videos for your products.


Making your videos as memorable as possible is a critical step in the video marketing process. Think of your videos as Venus fly traps, if you will. Your goal is to make sure that everyone who visits your channel becomes a long-term subscriber, and in order to achieve this, you'll need to use some of the most common tricks and strategies that you'll see many other YouTubers use.


You could, for instance, ask visitors to sign up as subscribers!


One of the best ways to keep your viewers is to simply ask them to subscribe. You'll get more exposure if you ask them to 'like' your videos. Although asking for 'help' this way makes some new YouTubers uncomfortable, the practice is fairly standard across the platform. People may enjoy your videos, but they may not think to sign up for more after watching them. Reminding them by asking them to do so is an effective strategy. Do not be afraid to explain how much it will help you if your video gets a lot of views. Indicate your gratitude by emphasizing how much effort was put into it. Simply put, it's a good strategy.


Do you want to add anything else?


In this case, shorter is preferable to longer.


If the content necessitates it, by all means make long, in-depth videos. However, if you can, try to say more in less time. This strategy works because it encourages viewers to stay with you through the end of your video. As a result, they'll be able to see your request and subscribe if they like it. Furthermore, it will raise your video's ranking in YouTube's search results by improving your metrics.


How To Produce a Sequence of Events


Creating a series is one way to gain more subscribers. People are more likely to watch Part 2 of a video if it's marketed as 'Part 1'. You're basically leaving the audience hanging by ending on a cliffhanger, so they won't want to miss what happens next. Some people will sign up because of that alone, even if they hadn't planned to before. Some channels are almost entirely made up of a single'series. '. YouTube channel Cinema Sins is well-known for its series titled "Everything Wrong With..." Dissecting popular films, this show focuses on their flaws and plot holes for the most part. The fact that people are curious about what will be covered next encourages them to subscribe because they are interested in knowing what they can expect from future videos.


If your material does not naturally lend itself to a series format, then it will be a problem. If this is the case, simply end your videos with a mention of what's 'coming up.' Tell your audience about the most exciting content you have yet to create and why they should seriously consider subscribing. At the same time, make sure your content is as consistent as possible. That means maintaining a high standard of quality while also remaining consistent in terms of both subject matter and vocal delivery. The more irrelevant your videos are, the less likely someone will want to subscribe to your channel. This is especially true if your first video was about fitness and your second video was about computer games.


Create a Group


Creating a community around your videos is another way to keep people coming back and subscribe to your content. In other words, it means actively participating in the discussion and leaving thoughtful comments. This is a smart move because it makes your audience feel closer to you. Why do you suppose it's more likely that if you politely answer someone's question, they'll click "like" or subscribe? The same goes for the fact that it encourages repeat business (to see if anyone has responded to their comments). Many YouTube comments will be posted to Google+ as well, which is a major perk of the new service. Through the connections people make with friends, co-workers, and strangers online on Google+, you help your videos spread like wildfire. Google+ is Google's own social media site.


Chapter 3: Traffic-Driving Techniques


Now that you've done all of that, you should see an increase in your channel's views, subscribers, comments, and other metrics. More content and participation in the comments will only help your campaign gain momentum over time. However, there are other ways to add a little more kerosene to the fire by moving traffic. A number of popular techniques are employed by businesses and YouTubers alike.


Search engine optimization for YouTube


Keep in mind that, after Google, YouTube is the second most used source of information. The comparison is fair because YouTube functions similarly to a search engine in that it enables users to look for specific content and find videos that are relevant to their interests. YouTube Suppose you want to learn PhotoShop, you'll go to the search bar and type in something like "beginners' guide to PhotoShop." Afterwards, you'll scan through the thumbnails to find the videos that look the most relevant and then click on their titles to watch them. It's exactly like Google this time!


In order to rank highly in Google search results, companies use a technique known as SEO (Search Engine Optimization). This is exactly what you'll do on YouTube as well, with a few minor variations due to the platform's differences. So, you're thinking about what people will look for when they're looking for content just like yours when you do keyword research. You'll then use that term in both the title and description of your video. The practice of writing a lot of descriptions is widely accepted as beneficial. Consider not only what is popular and what people are looking for when selecting search terms, but also what is not overcrowded. Try to find unmet needs and niches in which your products or services can fill a void. Filling out your channel's details, linking to your website, and linking to related channels are all beneficial for YouTube SEO.


Using and Sharing Other People's Content


Of course, you should also make an effort to share your videos via links and embed them wherever you can. In a future post, we'll go into greater detail about posting to social media, but for now, this is a great way to get more eyes on your videos. As previously mentioned, you can also distribute it to online communities like Reddit. Many sub-forums exist on Reddit ( where people discuss a wide range of topics, share links, and vote on which ones should be given more exposure. If your videos are of high quality, you can gain a lot of exposure by posting them here. As with Google+, there are numerous smaller community pages and forums available as well. All of this works best, however, if your video's content matches the group's or page's topic. Make an effort to provide something that is relevant to that audience while also being different from what they have seen countless times before. Another clever trick is to embed your videos on your own website. Those who come to your site will generate many views for you in this manner.

Using the 'YouTube Channel' WordPress plugin, you can show the most recent video in your sidebar at all times – or even a different video each time someone reloads your page – without having to do anything else. The latter is a great way to increase the visibility of old videos you have lying around. In addition, posting links to your older videos is an excellent way to breathe new life into them while also aiding the growth of your channel. As a result, you'll get more out of your content and see an increase in return on investment. Naturally, getting your video embedded on a well-known website or blog is one of the best things that can happen. If this occurs, you could see thousands, if not millions, of new viewers in a matter of hours.

But there's a snag. It's a one in a million chance. The answer is to create your own luck each time. If you have any videos that you think the editors or bloggers would be interested in, you should send them to them.

Section 4: Creating Cash Flow

It's time to start seeing the fruits of your labor now that your YouTube channel is flourishing! The time has come for your YouTube channel to become financially viable. It is possible to do this in a number of ways, but the most effective one will be determined by the type of videos you produce and your current business models. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

By participating in YouTube's Partner Program (more information here:, you can make money from your videos. Your videos will be able to show advertisements, generating revenue each time someone clicks on one or watches it until the end. To make money from your videos, you can use a model known as a 'PPC' (Pay Per Click) model. The only problem is that if you want to make any money from your videos, you'll need thousands of views and visitors. Many full-time vloggers make a living this way, so it is possible. Just keep in mind that making money online will take a long time and a lot of work.


Selling your own products can also be an option. Promote them in the video and then include links in the description or in the video itself to do this (it is possible to link to your own content within your videos). Use of 'content marketing,' as the name suggests, is the idea here. While your content (the videos) is enticing viewers to visit your channel and build a following, it also allows you to sell to that audience.


Even though you can sell just about anything on the internet, creating a digital product like an ebook or an online course is becoming increasingly popular. For example, AthleanX and SixPackShortcuts make a lot of money by posting workout videos on their channels. BroScienceLife, a comedy/fitness channel, makes money by selling t-shirts and supplements, too.

Promoting Other People's Products

Instead of creating your own products or purchasing inventory, you can work with someone else's. What's the harm in selling an affiliate item? There is no difference between selling digital products (through sites like,, and, all of which offer up to 75 percent commission) or physical products using the Amazon Associates program ( and selling for commissions again. The profit margin on Amazon will be much smaller, but you will be able to sell virtually anything and do so on a platform your customers will recognize and trust. If you have a review site, this is a great way to make money. As a technology reviewer (with series like The Best Tech Under $50), Jonathan Morrison uses affiliate links in his descriptions on YouTube. We also recommend using the hue lighting for the video because that footage is stunning as well!

Content for subscribers

The YouTube platform now gives creators the option to monetize their work by charging for views or subscriptions. You can do this by making some free videos to get people to subscribe to your channel and then persuading them to pay for your premium content. If your video is teaching a skill that can be applied to many different careers, this approach works best.
