How can I increase YouTube Views by myself?
Why you want to generate more views is quite obvious. More views translates to a higher reach, more subscribers, more interactions, and therefore more revenue at the end of the day. We’re going to explain how you can achieve your goal with ten easy-to-implement Tips and Tricks!
1. Titles and Thumbnails
The titles and thumbnails are the flagships of your videos. Just like on a first date or job interview, first impressions count. Viewers usually decide in seconds whether to click on your video or not. Therefore, be sure to make your thumbnails and titles both summarize the content and grab attention. Bright colors, big headlines and pictures of faces can help you to do this. What you should avoid at all costs are clickbaits. These will certainly lead to more views; but afterwards no viewer will subscribe to you, as this will lead to a disappointment due to your “broken promise” in the headline.
2. Keywords and Tags open Doors
Not less important than the thumbnails and the titles, are the keywords. YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world after Google. Don’t miss the chance that users will become aware of you through suitable keywords and thus also increase your views and your reach. To find suitable keywords, you can use the Google Ads Keywords tool, for example. At the same time you can use well-chosen tags, that suit your content and follow at the trends at the same time.
3. Quality and Quantity
A question we often get from the artists we work with is: What is more important; quality or quantity? The answer is clear, both! Especially when building your channel, it is extremely important that you pay attention to both. For example, work with schedules, deadlines and scripts. A regular structure will lead to regular output that you can provide to your viewers. Continuity is just as important as the quality of your videos if you want to get more views on YouTube without paying. With a few tricks, you can improve the presentation of your content without spending a lot of money. For example, by optimizing the sound or your light, but also the or especially the concepts and originality play a very important role in achieving your goals.
In the time of social media and influencer marketing, collaborations with other influencers or YouTubers, have an incredibly high potential. You can get a lot of attention by cooperating with other channels or YouTubers and use it for yourself. With the cooperation, you are introduced to a new community, which does not know you yet. You have the opportunity to convince your partner’s audience of you and your content and thus increase clicks, likes, comments and subscriptions. Ideally, both sides benefit from each other and sustainable growth happens in all directions.
5. Good Time Management
One piece of advice we’d like to give you is to optimize your time management and prioritize your time. The best way to do this is to take a white sheet of paper or simply your smartphone and make a list. Ask yourself the question, how much time do I spend on which task and what do I achieve with the time spent. You will quickly notice that you often invest hours in things that do not offer you much benefit. Try to focus on things that actually help you and are not unnecessary time wasters.
6. Take Breaks!
We know how stressful it can be in the creative world. With all the tasks at hand, it’s easy to lose track of what you’re doing, or maybe even your concentration. That’s exactly why it’s important to take regular breaks at work. Even if it’s hard for you, you’ll notice that taking breaks will increase your creative flow and therefore your output. No soccer player in the world would go to a final game exhausted and demand full performance from himself.
7. Your Content
Your biggest focus should be on your concepts or content. Take your time when developing your concepts. Get feedback from people who may not be your friends and may talk your ear off. The point is to create content that will appeal to a wide range of people. Ask yourself the following questions: Would you watch your video yourself? What makes you different from the other channels? What can you give your viewers? With this thought process alone, you’ll realize how much room for improvement there is in the design and production of your videos.
