Convincing people to click your video will play an important role in getting the most views.
Here are some tips for your video titles:
Make it less than 50 characters long
Put in some keywords
Use Google Adwords to find keywords
Make it catchy or evoke curiosity
2. Leverage Social Media
When you get good at using other social networks, it’s very effective for your channels growth.
First, leverage the followers you already have by asking them to subscribe or watch your videos.
Second, you should post content on other social media for the sole purpose to promote your channel and its videos.
Make a page on Instagram for your YouTube channel and post short clips from your videos (or Twitter, or something else).
Every platform is very different for growing followers so always be learning. And make sure you are still providing value in everything you upload.
3. Bookmarking Sites
Use bookmarking sites like Delicious and Stumbleupon to get a bigger reach.
You can use tools like Bitly to create short custom links. You can post these links anywhere and share them across the different platforms.
4. Leave Comments
When you’re starting out, every single subscriber counts so much.
Be part of the YouTube community and leave comments on videos.
Leave comments that will get lots of likes and replies. Ask good questions, leave positive thoughts, and spread the love.
Be genuine because people will see your spam if you’re only there to self-promote.
When you comment on lots of videos, your views and subscribers will grow organically.
Categorize your videos into playlists.
It promotes binge watching and makes it easier for you to get views at the same time.

6 Ways to Make Money on Youtube
The golden question: How do you make money on YouTube? Your channel needs some traffic before you start making money. BUT if you use these strategies correctly, you don’t need millions of views to make a living from YouTube.
This article will cover the business aspect of YouTube. You can apply one or several of these methods to your channel. Here are 6 ways to make money with YouTube!
1. Google Adsense
The most obvious choice is to make money by servings ads on your videos, which can become a form of passive income. Ads can play before people watch your video, throughout the video or at the end. Sometimes you can have multiple ads play on one video.
It’s also important to know every channel has a different CPM. For example, personal finance channels pay a lot more than prank channels. This can be something to keep in mind when brainstorming video topics or starting a channel. There are also many other factors that affect your CPM. We found some articles for you below:
What affects your CPM?
Tips to raise your YouTube CPM
Requirements: To put ads on your channel you must have at least 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of overall watch time on your channel within the past 12 months.
2. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing (aka referral marketing) is the process of earning commission for promoting a companies products or services.
Many of the top YouTuber’s always say “click the link in the description to buy ____”. Sometimes that is an affiliate link. And if you purchase the product through their special link they will earn a commission.
You can do affiliate marketing for any genre or channel and it’s very effective if the product or service resonates with your audience.
To give you an example, Amazon has an affiliate program. When you get accepted you can promote anything on Amazon’s website and receive up to 10% commission.
There are many companies that have affiliate programs. Usually it says on the footer of their website “affiliate” or you can type: “Company name affiliate program” into google.
3. Merch/Selling Products
This is another more obvious way of making money through YouTube. You can sell merchandise and clothing to your loyal fans who want to support you.
Many high level YouTuber’s make most of their money through merchandise. In fact, Logan Paul said that he made over $1 million in ONE day on Black Friday.
To sell merchandise you can find a supplier locally. You can also find a print on demand service such as TeeSpring, Spreadshirt or many more.
4. Sell Informational Products
Online education is on the rise and people are spending lots of money in this category.
If you run a successful channel or have some knowledge that your viewers would like to know, you can sell a course, ebook or consulting to your audience.
The best part is you don’t need lots of views to make money from this. If you’re doing consulting for example, you only need to convince a handful of clients and can charge them a lot of money. For your product to be successful you should over-deliver on the price they paid for it.
Some genres of YT channels have better opportunities to do this (i.e. cooking, DIY, business channels), but you can actually sell a course about anything you know.
You can create a course with Teachable which is what Graham Stephan uses, a YouTuber who makes over $100,000 month from YouTube.
5. Sponsorships / Brand Deals
Many brands pay a good amount of money for YouTuber’s to place their products somewhere in their videos or mention a few good words about it.
One example is tech review channels where YouTubers talk about new products and review them.
If brands are not reaching out to you yet you can still get sponsorships but you have to reach out to them. To form these relationships you need some type of audience established. Then you can email brands and ask if they have an influencer program. Then you can negotiate and see if they’re interested in working with you.
6. Donations (i.e Patreon)
Sometimes YouTuber’s have their channels completely funded by donations from their fans. Patreon is a service that lets your fans pay a membership for you (example $5/month). You can also give fans incentive to sign up by offering them exclusive videos or benefits.
Some genres that do this are documentary channels, channels that have their adsense disabled, creators that want to focus on quality content (not clickbait stuff) and many more.
Whether you’re already monetized or plan to on the future it’s good to plan out your options. You can also combine some of these and have multiple flows of income.
Some channels will be better suited for these strategies than others but it’s good to be aware of all them.
