Double your YouTube Clicks - Your Promotion Tools
You want to double your YouTube Clicks? We admit it sounds too good to be true. But you’ll be surprised at how many useful tips there are that can increase your YouTube success immensely. Below we have summarized 10 tips for you, but our other blog posts about YouTube will continue, so stay tuned.
Step 1: Prepare your Account
Especially at the beginning of your career, you should build up a certain reach before you get your Music published. For example, through behind-the-scenes footage, vlogs or other content. Of course, you can use all social media platforms to push your YouTube account. Be sure to link your YouTube profile to Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Plus, your content on TikTok has a higher potential to go viral and make you better known. Use this for you and your music career because the most viewed content on YouTube usually appears outside of YouTube.
Step 2: Videos on Keywords or Topics
YouTube is the second-largest search engine after Google and users often search for Keywords and phrases on specific topics and content. Around 3 billion searches are performed on YouTube every month. By creating videos that focus on specific keywords, you send a clear signal to YouTube’s algorithm, increasing the chances of being found through keywords. For example, to find suitable keywords for your content, you can use the free Google Ads tool. Here, suggestions are almost automatically delivered to you in seconds, which you can implement keywords in your title or description.
Step 3: Keywords and Tags
Keyword and topic-related content is a good first step if you want to double your YouTube Clicks, but you need to go one step further with your content if you really want your content to be discoverable. For this, you should definitely integrate the appropriate keywords. How the whole thing works, we explain to you right now.
Use your search term in the video description, preferably in the first sentence. Use keywords and variants in your tags. Look for inspiration from other Creators, and look at which tags have worked in the past and could still lead to a good result in the future.
Step 4: Link yourself and your videos
Many content creators, from beginners to experts, make the mistake of viewing each video as a separate and thus separate piece of content. Don’t miss the opportunity to link to other videos or other online content in your videos and descriptions. For example, you can also link to your other social media accounts, such as TikTok or Instagram.
Step 5: Create themed playlists
YouTube users often stay in playlists to watch more videos. These videos are automatically displayed and cover the topic of the previous content. You can create playlists during or after uploading your videos.
Side Fact: If binge-watching is new to you, here’s a quick overview. “Binge”, the German word for “verschlingen”, means in the original sense to watch many episodes of a series in a row. This phenomenon can now also be seen on other platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok. More and more viewers are watching videos without thinking. You can use the binge-watching phenomenon for yourself to get more views. You can read everything about YouTube Playlists in our blog entry YouTube Playlists as a Promotion Tool.
Step 6: Use the Credits
The credits are a great opportunity to grab the attention of viewers who watched your video to the end. These spectators are the most valuable spectators. Because the probability that they follow a call to action is much higher. For example, you can ask users in the credits to subscribe to your channel or recommend another video from your channel.
Step 7: Communication with Viewers
Especially today, communication with the community is very important. Appreciate positive feedback and respond objectively to criticism. Your community will reward you with subscriptions and more views on YouTube. You give the viewers the feeling of appreciation, and you convey to them that you take time for your audience.
Step 8: Other Social Media Channels
In addition, you have the opportunity to promote your videos on your other social media channels. Instagram or TikTok, for example, are ideal for this. With short clips or reels, you have the opportunity to go viral with your content faster and with less effort. You can then use the increased reach to promote your videos on YouTube or your channel.
Step 9: Thumbnails
Another way to boost your performance on your videos is to create eye-catching, yet fitting thumbnails. You can easily create your cover photos with Photoshop or Canvas. But ensure not to make false promises like clickbaits. The users should get what you promise them with your thumbnail.
Step 10: Collaborations with other influencers
By working with other Creators, both channels can ideally grow and benefit from the cooperation; because you are introduced to the community of your collaboration partner and vice versa the whole thing works the same way. Profit is mutual for both.
