Even the most creative, charismatic, tech-savvy business owners can benefit from knowing a few completely natural ways to increase YouTube views. There is no shame in swaying the odds in your own favor – as long as you really have something to offer!
Hundreds of millions of people use YouTube to find answers to their problems, to find awesome products, and to get their quick entertainment fix, so there is plenty of room for everybody to be successful!
Let us be perfectly honest: the chances of striking viral gold are almost impossible. While free traffic on such a large scale is every business owner’s dream, even just a few high quality hits can provide astonishing results.
Providing valuable content will naturally increase YouTube views, but there are certain methods that are more successful than others. Humorous videos are easy – everybody likes to have a laugh now and again! But those of us lacking a funny bone must turn to real, valuable content: videos that answer questions, videos that are relevant to current events, or videos that relate to the interests of the viewer directly.
Even the greatest content may fall by the wayside without a little nurturing. Foster connections through social networks, smart online marketing tools, blog comments, or even through YouTube itself. Remember – embedded views count! So if you can get people to view the video at a relevant and appropriate location, all the better! Connecting with like-minded individuals and manually building up an onsite friends list will make a world of difference.
The progress may be slow, but natural methods have staying power that view-generators and paid ads do not. Once viewers are hooked, make sure to drop a few subtle hints about upcoming videos to build a strong base of repeat viewers.
Always beware attempts to cheat the system. All steps taken to increase YouTube views should be made with regard to the fact that the website is owned by Google – and Google quickly figures out every dirty trick in the book!
