How To Get views on Your Youtube Videos
One of today’s most common places to gather income and traffic is YouTube. This is a great site to earn some extra income and/or drive traffic to another site that a person owns. YouTube has been around for years and gains more popularity every year. The concepts to turn YouTube into income are fairly straightforward, however the deeper concepts that lead to further success just keep going and going.
The first step is a video. This may seem like an oversimplification, but it is not. There is difference between a video and a video that is going to get traffic. Taking the time to make a great video is the first key to using YouTube as a tool for income. Make use of software that is available to either create the video or to make it more exciting. If you are recording a video, then make sure that the quality is high. Do not use any copyrighted material as YouTube will pull your video and this can cause you to lose subscribers quickly.
Once your video is in place, make sure that the description for both the video and for your subscriber account are clear, exciting and have any links to websites that you may wish to increase traffic to. Also, be sure to watch the comments and respond quickly and nicely to any questions and/or comments.
Use your other networks to start your base traffic. Social sites are a great place to build a small traffic base that can lead to much more traffic in the future. One thing to make sure never happens is the use of temporary accounts. What this means is if there is a possibility that an email address might not be valid for you in the future then use a different email. It is very frustrating to lose access to income because a domain expired or an email disappeared.
The key is to create subscribers and not just the occasional visitor. One great video is fine, but a continuous stream of high quality informative videos creates followers and subscribers. If you promise an upcoming video, then either deliver or communicate why you have not done so. The Internet is a big place and you can lose an audience quick.
That being said, do promise upcoming information. Make people want to subscribe and come back by exciting them about what is next. The excitement of here and now fades quickly. Do not be afraid to say the words, ask people to subscribe, tell them to subscribe. The biggest failure in sales today is the inability to ask for the sale. If you want someone to do something, then ask!
Always be closing, always be positive and always assume that people are going to be subscribing. Use phraseology such as “Once you have subscribed…” The ultimate best traffic generation method involves an active conversation. Arrange events where you and your potential subscribers will be online at the same time. Announce a new video coming out and use online meeting software to host the “grand opening.” This puts you in active control of your audience, not chasing them through emails and comments.
In the end, each YouTube video is a chance to make dreams come true. Take active control, be assertive. Tell people to come back when the next video is ready. Constantly be on the Internet, new sites every day and invite people to come see your videos. Every time you tell someone about what you are doing, you increase your chances for success. Make YouTube your tool and use it as such.
