Now that you are all set with your technical necessities and settings to make a good YouTube video to earn profit, it is time to give you some detailed tips and tricks to have more views on your video.
How to find hashtags for your video
First of all, let’s start with hashtags and how to position them. Hashtags are a great way to get views on YouTube. You do not necessarily have to use hashtags in your videos. But if you want to reach a wider audience, then they are your best bet. There are various ways of finding keywords and hashtags for your videos. One of the best softwares to help you find the right hashtags is vidIQ Vision for YouTube. It is primarily a free software that suggests 3 hashtags related to your video’s title and caption. You can also choose some YouTuber as your competitors to see how their channel is doing. vidIQ also allows you to see the hashtags other YouTubers use on their videos, so you can get an idea on what to use for best views. Searching “keywords for Youtube” on Google will also help you find several platforms for finding the most used and relevant keywords.
You can use 3 hashtags at the top of the caption of your video as well. This will straight up tell people what the video is about. It can help you reach your target audience easily as people will know what they are looking for.
Once your video is uploaded, go ahead and search for the keywords you used for your video. This will help you see where your video is placed in the said keyword, and you can find out which keywords brings you out the most. So that you can make better choices for next videos.
Remember, if you use too many irrelevant keywords or hashtags, your video may get banned.
Interacting with other creators
There is a weird and untrue belief that if you comment or like your competitors’ content, you’ll be a loser. However, remember that your competitor also has an audience that checks the comment section. When you regularly watch and interact with other creators, you will be seen by their audiences more. This can also help you get more engagement on your page. Do not spread hate of course. But remember that other content creators aren’t your enemies, and they can inspire you a lot on your journey. Go ahead and show some love to them, and it will come back to you.
Creating playlists with your videos is a great way to show people your collection. You are essentially giving them more of the content they like, and they will in turn watch more of your videos in one sitting. This can help you distribute your content better among people interested in your area. It also helps your page to seem more organized and put together. As people don’t really like fiddling to find what they are looking for, being organized will be beneficial for you in the long run.
Share your videos on other platforms
Even though it is not necessary to share your videos on other platforms, it is encouraged. You are basically saying that your video is so good it is worth showing up on other platforms as well. This will help you in getting more engagement as well. The more a video is shared on other places, the more YouTube thinks it’s worth distributing among a wider audience. It also helps you show your work to other people who are not actively watching YouTube.
Use cards in your videos
Think of using cards in your videos like backlink-ing an article. The more that videos get mentioned, the better. So by putting cards on the upper corner of your videos linking to your other ones is a great way to tell the audience you have more to offer. You are also reminding the audience to go watch your previous videos as they can be in their interest areas. However, try to keep the cards at a certain number. If you put too many cards, you might be annoying to watch.
Use the Community tab on your channel
Your audience wants to get to know you outside of your videos. Community tab is a great way to create bonds with your subscribers. You can also use the tab to create excitement for your new videos, and promote your new ones on your channel. Think of it like the homepage of Instagram where you are sharing your new posts. You can also use surveys and more interactive features to increase your channel’s engagement.
