10 Great Practical Tips On How To Grow A Small YouTube Channel

When browsing different forums, I come across a lot of posts detailing why small YouTube channels are not gaining subscribers. As a small Youtuber, I seem to have cracked this problem given that with my weekly postings since Christmas, I have gained around 800 new subscribers. Here is a list of 10 things I did to make my channel grow exponentially within a short period of time… They worked for me and may well work for you.

First, ensure that you have a target audience. If you are speaking to everybody, then your message is bound to get lost among the sea of videos being uploaded daily. Ensure that you create unique content for your audience and do not publish content to your audience.

Ensure that when publishing, your videos have a catchy title, appealing thumbnails, an alluring description, and ensure that you optimize your tags.

To grow your subscribers, ensure that you look for a new potential audience who may find your content interesting outside your traditional Facebook groups and YouTube viewers. By delving into other forums with people who like your content, your viewer rate will increase. Ensure that you promote your content but do not spam potential audiences. Additionally, use your existing tribes to research on areas of interest that you can explore in future posts on your channel.

Instead of focusing on getting subscribers, focus on getting more people to view your content. You can even buy YouTube views to get you started. Views drive subscriber numbers.

Use a script to record your videos. This will help ensure that you create a catchy intro, middle, and conclusion. Using a script, you will be able to plan how to promote your content throughout your video.

On publishing content, encourage viewers to like your content, subscribe and, share their views. However, avoid doing this all at once as you are likely to get none of your wishes fulfilled. Instead, be strategic in how you ask your viewers to contribute to the growth of your channel.

To encourage your viewers to react to your content, consider adding questions within your video. When your community is engaged, they are more likely to share your stuff.

You can learn a lot from people who have highly successful YouTube channels. For great tips and invaluable advice on how to make your channel grow, follow YouTube gurus such as Derral Eves, Nick Nimmin and Roberto Blake.

Ensure that you post consistently. This may seem like a lot of work but eventually, this will pay off. To see how consistency helps, evaluate your content and growth after 3 months to see the difference.

Ideally, you should have a release plan for each upcoming post. The plan can be in the form of a simple list containing all the things that you need to cover in the post. You can even make a reusable template for this purpose. This will make the process of creating and publishing your content less stressful.
