16 Confirmed guidelines to promote your YouTube
Channel
1. Write engaging, must-see titles
YouTube marketing is all about presentation.
Titles are make-or-break when it comes to your video’s performance. Ask
yourself: are you presenting your content as “must-see” or “meh?”
The key to crafting killer titles is grabbing your audience’s attention without
resorting to clickbait headlines. People crave content that is entertaining, and they
likewise want to know what your video is about from the word “go.”
For example, you can take a page out of the playbooks of YouTube giants like
BuzzFeed and WhatCulture. Such videos often rely on listicles, question-based
titles or hyperbole (“insane,” “…of all time”) to rack up the views.
“Best-of” lists and “how-to” titles are always a safe bet, too. Here are some click-
worthy titles from Disney Food Blog:
The takeaway here is that you should definitely spend time mulling over
engaging titles rather than sticking with the first idea that pops into your head.
Host long-form video on your channel, extend reach through YouTube’s
extensive search capabilities, and track how your performance stacks up to
other social networks.

2. Optimize your videos for visibility
Here is some food for thought: YouTube videos show up in 70% of the top 100
Google search results.
Heck, see for yourself. Any given product or “how-to” query on Google will
return something from YouTube.
In fact, YouTube results sometimes even pop up before traditional blog posts
or websites.
Listen: YouTube is the second-largest search engine in the world in and of itself.
Just as people search for products and need problems solved via Google, the
same rings true on YouTube.
Think of your YouTube videos like any other piece of content that needs to be
optimized in terms of keywords, tags and so on.
In order to increase your chances of showing up, you will want to follow some
of the best practices for YouTube SEO:
 Titles and description: Include target keywords in your titles and
descriptions. You can use a tool like Keywordtool.io to help you find
keyword ideas.
 Mention keywords in your video: According to Brian Dean of Backlink,
saying your target keywords in your video can help YouTube had better
understand what your video is about.
 Engagement: YouTube uses engagement (likes, comments, views) to
help determine where videos rank in its search results.
 Categories: Use categories to help YouTube get a better
understanding of who to show your videos to.
 Tags: In addition to categories, you can also add tags to your videos to
give YouTube more context about your content. You can use quite a few
tags, so add as many as you can think of.
Just like with SEO for your website, don’t keyword stuff. Use keywords when it
makes sense, not just for the sake of having them.

3. Figure out what your audience wants
With any type of content you produce, you want to make sure it’s aligned with
what your audience wants. Whether you are writing a blog post or creating a
video, start by getting to know your audience and what type of content they want
to see from you.
If you are just starting to promote your YouTube channel, take a look at your
competitors or other video creators in your industry. Look at which of their
videos get the most views and engagement. This will give you an idea of what
topics your audience wants to learn about and what style of videos they prefer.
Another solution is to look at your YouTube Analytics if you have already
uploaded videos. YouTube gives you detailed information on audience
demographics, location, engagement and other helpful stats.
4. Engage with the YouTube community
Although you might not think of YouTube as a social network per se, the
platform does represent a thriving community where users are engaging via
content via profiles, “likes” and comments.
5. Customize your thumbnails
One of the simplest yet effective tactics to promote your YouTube channel is
creating custom thumbnails.
Think of your title and thumbnail as a sort of one-two punch to grab a viewer’s
attention.
By default, YouTube snags a screenshot from any given video and uses it for the
thumbnail. Unfortunately, sometimes the image it grabs will be a blurry shot of
you adjusting the camera or a transition.
Not a good look, right?
Creating thumbnails yourself not only makes your videos look more appealing
at a glance but also signals a certain sense of professionalism.
Thumbnails do not have to be rocket science, either. You can even create a
template with a particular font and style to make it more consistent and on-
brand. This is made especially easy with the help of image creation tools such as
Canva.
6. Cross-promote your own videos on YouTube
Chances are you are covering similar topics on YouTube that overlap with each
other. To squeeze more out of your older content, make a point to cross-
promote your videos when it makes sense.
CLICK HERE TO INCREASE YOUR YOUTUBE ENGAGEMENS WITH THIS
TOOL
For example, you can drop links in the description of a video and encourage
viewers to check them out as a sort of call-to-action. Although some might be
disappointed by the recent removal of YouTube’s annotation system, linking in
your description encourages viewers to watch your videos all the way through
without clicking away.
7. Target Google search results
As noted, YouTube is totally killing it when it comes to SEO.
In addition, while you should not totally create content for search engines
versus people, you should promote your YouTube channel with SEO in mind.
Specifically, product reviews, how-to’s and long-form (10+ minutes) videos
covering keyword-specific topics tend to rank well in search engine results
pages (SERPs). If you are strapped for content ideas or want to capitalize on a
trending buzzword in your industry, consider how you can do so through your
YouTube channel marketing.
8. Run a contest or giveaway
If there is one thing YouTube users love, it is a giveaway. Host a YouTube contest
or giveaway to encourage people to subscribe to your channel and engage.
To keep your contests simple, have people like your video, leave a comment
and subscribe to your channel to enter.
Follow some of our best practices for running any social media contest:
 Make sure you are following YouTube’s policies.
 Give away a gift that is related to your brand: you want to attract more
than just freebie-seekers.
 Get creative by incorporating user-generated content and other non-
traditional entry requirements.
Be careful with hosting frequent YouTube contests, though. You want to make
sure you are getting results from your efforts: otherwise, you will end up wasting
time, money and resources. After doing one contest, wait a while and look at

Series are a win-win for creators and viewers alike. For creators, you hold yourself accountable for creating fresh YouTube content and do not have to rack your brain for ideas. For your audience, they have something to look forward to and likewise a reason to keep returning to your channel. 10. Embed your YouTube videos Some of the best places to promote your YouTube channel are beyond YouTube itself. Case in point, video content is proven to improve conversion rates and lower bounce rate on-site. If you want visitors to stick around a product page or blog post longer, embed a video (like we did below). Remember: any opportunity you have to funnel your on site (or social!) traffic to YouTube is a plus. 11. Create playlists to organize your YouTube content The more videos you create, the more difficult it becomes for people to navigate through your channel. That is why playlists are so important. Not only do playlists allow you to group your videos into categories to organize your channel, but also appeal to your viewers’ desire to binge.

  • 8. For example, Beard brand’s grooming channel uploads daily and therefore has amassed hundreds of videos covering tons of topics. The channel’s various playlists help guide subscribers to relevant content without having to dig for it. 12. Increase engagement with calls to action Sometimes simply asking for engagement is the best way to get your videos noticed, especially when you consider the immediacy and connection that video content can create. Not everyone who enjoys one of your videos is going to remember drop a like or become your subscriber, so it has become increasingly common to put these reminders in the description or in the video itself. Especially if you are an up-and-coming channel, there is no shame in asking for some love directly. In fact, asking visitors a question to answer in the comments suggestion or to check out another video are perfect ways to keep the engagement rolling. You can likewise link to other videos or drop an external link to your site to serve as a sort of CTA. 13. Give live streaming a try Live video is one of the biggest social media trends and it is not going anywhere anytime soon. With apps like Facebook, Periscope and Instagram making it easier than ever to stream live video, more and more brands are getting on board. YouTube has been offering live videos for years but has only recently started picking up steam. You can look at some popular YouTube Live videos to get a sense of how other brands are using the platform. Some examples of how you can use YouTube Live are:  Webinars  Live tutorials  Q&A sessions  Product demonstrations

Part of the fun (and risk) of live video is you never know what is going to happen. The unpolished, organic nature of live video is exactly what makes it compelling. For more tips on how to get started with YouTube Live, check out Google’s introduction to live streaming. 14.

The key to a successful YouTube collaboration is finding the right partner.
