Step 6: How To Get More Views?
So you are making some amazing videos, but people don’t come to watch your videos? No worries Just do as I say and you will get lots of viewers.
Viral Your Content On Social Media
“Jo dikkhta hai woh bik ta hai” means any Product that can be seen can be sold. So if you just started your youtube channel. Youtube will not recommend your videos to users instantly. You need to continue making videos, in the meantime, if you don’t show people that you have a youtube channel, then no one gonna come.
If you can’t share your videos on social media, then don’t hope that anybody will share your content. Of course, you need to make good content first, that people do not hesitate to share. If you don’t have accounts on all popular social media, then create an account in all of them. I know most of us only use facebook, but if you want to get more views to create a profile on Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit, Tumblr, LinkedIn. And start sharing your videos. Remember if you are making better videos then your competitors then people will start sharing your videos and your videos will go viral in no time.
Attract Viewers By Design
Now, this the most important part to gain viewers. We all know that the first impression is the best impression, but here on youtube, the first impression is the thumbnail. Many new YouTubers don’t pay attention to it. And most of them don’t even use a custom thumbnail. Let me ask you something will you ever click on a boring thumbnail, that does not look interesting? if you do then let me know in comments.
It is human psychology. That we pay attention to those which looks interesting, rare, mysterious, unknown things. So you need to create a thumbnail that not only looks interesting but also create a query in the readers’ mind. You need to create a thumbnail, that viewers think that, it will solve all his queries.
So to create a custom thumbnail for free you can use Canva. Just go to canva.com and search for youtube thumbnail and make an attractive thumbnail.
To make a thumbnail more attractive use few words, but those few words have to be specific and it has to create a question in the reader’s mind. And always use shocking and mysterious images to make a thumbnail. Use a red circle or red arrow to point something.
And next time when you scroll on your youtube app notice thumbnails design. That will give you some great ideas.
Use Free Tools Offered By Youtube
to get more views on youtube. you need to link all your videos. So if only one of your video goes viral then people can watch more your videos through that video. To link any video can put your related videos URL in the description box, or you can use cards and end screens.
To use them go to the creator studio, then video manager and click on the edit button. on the top menu, you will find cards and end screens. Use them to link your other videos.
Step 7: Turn All Your Viewers To Subscribers
To turn all your viewers into subscribers, follow these carefully. And I am sure 70 out of 100 viewers will subscribe.
So now your videos started to get views. but most of them just watching your videos and exit. So why they are not hitting the subscribe button. One of the common reasons is they expect your video to be better. So the first thing you need to do that try to find out what’s wrong with your content and try to make better videos. Make sure your audio quality is high and if you are shooting outside try to avoid shaking your camera. And if you are making animation videos then try to make things smooth and clear.
What Is The Best Video Export Settings For Youtube?
These video upload settings are recommended by youtube. If you export videos with these settings, youtube can encode your video easily. And it might help you to grow your channel.
Framerate: 24, 25, 30, 48, 50, 60 (These are the most common framerate) but 24 is best for cinematic videos. and 30 is popular.
Video Codec: H.264

|2160p (4k)||35-45 Mbps||53-68 Mbps|
|1440p (2k)||16 Mbps||24 Mbps|
|1080p||8 Mbps||12 Mbps|
|720p||5 Mbps||7.5 Mbps|
|480p||2.5 Mbps||4 Mbps|
|360p||1 Mbps||1.5 Mbps|
Why Should I Subscribe Your Channel?
Yes, this is the most important question. Why they subscribe to your channel. because of competition.If you don’t do something unique and creative why they subscribe to your channel? And if you are thinking that you are do ing grate then your competitors, then I am sure you will get some really good comments. But if nobody comments on your videos just watching them, then you need to create better videos.
But if you are getting good comments but not gaining subscribers then you need to say in your videos that why should they subscribe to your channel. What’s unique about your videos and how people will find it helpful. And always use outro subscribe templates.
If you have too many related videos, make sure you create a playlist on that topic. If people like that topic then I am sure they will visit your channel to see if there are more videos available on that topic. if you already created a playlist on that topic then it will be easy for them to find and watch.
If you are making videos on tech, don’t upload a funny video on the same channel. Because people will be confused if you upload videos of different categories. And no one will subscribe to your channel. But if you making videos over a single category, then not only your viewers will subscribe, but also youtube algorithm will also give you a priority and suggest your videos to others.
Start Earning Money From Youtube channel

Maintain Your Youtube Channel
To become a professional YouTuber, you need to maintain your youtube channel. Remember that quality is most important the quantity. It does not matter that if you just publish only one video a week. But the quality of your videos should be good. And I am not only talking about only picture an nd audio quality. Your videos should be specific and you should not want to bore your viewers by talking something off the topic.
How Long Should Your Videos Be?
First of all, nobody likes a long video, if it’s not a movie. Smaller videos with useful information are the best. You need to create videos with a length of 7 to 15 minutes. If you create small length videos then your viewers will watch it till the end. So youtube will suggest your videos more if everyone watches your videos till the end.
For the new channels, you need to create more videos. So two videos a week is best. You can create more than its good, but make sure you create good quality videos. The most important thing in youtube is You need to continue to upload videos. Then your channel will grow. you need to upload your videos at the same time.
Go to your channel analytics and find when your videos get more view. Like if your videos get more views at 8 p.m the always upload your videos at 7.30 p.m. Upload your video on the same days. Like if you upload videos twice a week, upload videos every Sunday and Thursday. And always tell people, the time when they find new videos on your channel.
What To Do If You Get A Copyrights Strike?
The reasons behind getting a copyright strike are you copied someone’s content. So the first thing you need to do is avoid getting someone’s content. That could a video clip or music even a picture. But when you get a copyright strike you can contact the owner and ask them to remove the strike. Or if you are sure that it’s your original content you can submit a counter complain.
How To Get Copyrights Free Clips, Music And pictures?
The first mistake new YouTubers make is, they download images from google image search and don’t filter the usage of the right. So if you want to download copyright free images from google then the first filter them with commercial rights usage. Or you can use Pixabay or Pixels to get copyright free images and even video clips.
To download copyrights free music, youtube gives you an option to do that. First, go to the creator studio the click on create from the left section. Here you will find lots of free music to download and use.
So that’s all you need to make a youtube channel and become a professional YouTuber if you still have some query then let me know down in the comments.
