Select only Your Favorite Topic:
It’s the first and most important part to select a topic in which you are interested and make sure you know much about it.
It could be your football skills, cooking, traveling, dog training, funny clips and the list goes on…
The easy way is to identify your favorite topics and then write them down on a page and select the one for which you are most passionate.
You know why it’s really important?
Because you are going to make the videos on that topic for a long time and if you don’t have interest and proper knowledge about that specific topic then you are not ready for going that far…
I suggest you to never select the topic in hurry and do proper research about ideas that on which niche you can provide the unique videos that people will love watching.
After selecting your niche, it’s time to check that if people are interested in that topic by doing easy keyword research.
Do Proper Keyword Research:
No matter you are doing blogging or Vlogging keyword research remains the necessary process because it can give you the guess that how much famous the topic is…
If you don’t know what’s the keyword research it’s just finding the exact phrases that people are searching to find your videos…
For now, you don’t have to select the keywords to use in your videos but just needs to check that if your topic is worth working on…
Let’s suppose that you have selected “dog training” for making videos…
I use this keyword tool for Youtube which gives me the good idea of how much people are searching for it.
Make sure when you are using this tool you selected API of “Youtube” and Country “US” in the tool.
So here are the results for dog training…
It’s pretty impressive, right? Almost 60k people are searching for this keyword every month then it clearly means that it’s a famous topic and people are interested in watching videos on it.
By using this method you can easily check that how much people are willing to watch videos on your topic.
When you are doing the keyword research try to find the highest searched keywords on which you can make the videos also…
Because entering in the deep and famous niche can give you more traffic as compared to entering to the very small niche.
You can also use many other paid tools for keyword research but I only use this one due to its high relevancy.
So, now you have some idea about how to check your topic worth. Don’t worry once you will start and keep finding keywords for your every video you will become an expert at it.
Your next move will be to create content…
Start recording Professional Videos:
I must say that your content is everything…
All the other steps you are doing are just for making your content visible to everyone interested in watching.
Let me tell you a secret first
The biggest traffic source on youtube for our videos is the “related videos” section and they can only list you with related videos if your content is perfect.
In other words, if every person who came to your video gets to stick to it till the end then Youtube will consider you the related result about that specific topic and show your video every time in the related videos section.
So, when you are making videos keep your viewer intent in mind who is going to watch your videos and optimize your content for them so they can watch your videos till end…
Let’s get back to our point that how you can make your videos more appealing…
First 15-20 seconds should be great
In a study Youtube found that user decides to watch or leave from your video in the first 20 seconds, if you can hook them at the start then you stayed them for complete video.
But for making your first few seconds very sticky you need to tell them what’s in the complete video or also hook them by mentioning their problem again…
Didn’t you understand smart boy? Let me show you an example
As we are using the example of “dog training”, so just select that which phrase will be more attractive for your viewer at starting of video…
“Hi my name is Mike and welcome to the German dog training”
“Are you trying to train your German dog but he’s not listening, I am going to show you the method”
The second one is more appealing and interesting, right? Because it’s stating their problem and offering them the solution as well, so it’s what they are actually looking for…
It’s a very good example of attracting or losing your viewers in the first few seconds of your video.
I must mention it again that if people are watching your video for more time period then Youtube will send you more views and also your revenue will increase.
So, it’s very compulsory to hook your viewers at the starting so they can watch all your videos on the channel.
You need to write these punch lines of starting on the page and select the best one for the starting of your video and it will give you results for sure.
Pay Attention to Graphics Quality
The days are long gone when people have low-quality internet connection and used to watch the 240p videos.
Now everyone, especially in foreign Countries, has the high-speed internet connection and they love to watch the high-quality videos like 1080p normally as well.
So, you need to select a best vlogging camera for recording the eye-catching videos.
Youtube and other experts also found that people leave the videos which have low-quality graphics even they are interested in the content.
I must suggest you to also learn the basics of video editing because it’s necessary to remove or add small effects for making your videos more professional.
Create Long Enough Videos
As we know that if your video is ranked on Youtube for a high searched keyword then you are going to get the maximum possible views.
The thing is that Youtube now is only ranking the videos where users stick like super glue and stay for more time.
So, for getting the users for more time on your videos you need to create the long duration videos like 15-20 minutes.
Please don’t get me wrong long videos never mean to repeat the things in your videos but to give them the in-depth details of that specific topic.
When you are making the professional content for getting the maximum views, likes and shares then it’s compulsory to give your viewers every single detail about the topic.
Before creating your video try to read and digest the every detail about your topic from the Internet as well as from books if possible…
Then make a proper theme of your video while also including the punch lines in it, so your users will never get bored.
If you are making the spicy videos of 10-15 minutes on every topic then you will surely start getting views in very less time, I am saying with experience.
Increase your User Engagement:
As I mentioned before that the more time user is spending on your channel and videos will be better for your authority and earnings.
Here’s the trick
When you have decided to make many videos on the same topic then create your content in the list of episodes for making the playlist.
Let me show you an example:
If you are making the bunch of videos on “Dog Training” then create the videos like
“Dog Training” Episode 1
“Dog Training” Episode 2
It will not only create the suspense that what’s in the next episode but the people who love to watch that type of content will view maximum possible videos to your channel.
You may also notice that when we are watching any show episode on the Youtube, other previous and next episodes are listed at the side in a playlist…
So, most of the time we end up watching 2-3 episodes otherwise we may watch only one episode.
This will work like icing on the cake and your user will also be going to like it.
Ask Viewers to Like and Subscribe
Most of the people even making the cool videos are not getting the likes, comments and channel subscriber which is the major ranking factor on Youtube.
So, at the end of your every video ask your viewers to Like your video and Subscribe to your channel in a unique way.
The phrase “Subscribe to my channel for latest updates” is very old now…
You need to make a spicy line which should get you, maximum subscribers. In my case, I use the funny phrases for getting the likes so people smile and give me the like after watching…
I must tell you to add the subscribe button on your video at the end, like shown below and ask them to subscribe to you in a good way…
Optimize your Videos for Traffic:
Now you already knew that if your videos are great but not optimized for Youtube search and suggested videos section then you are not going to get any traffic.
These techniques are personally tested by me on Youtube and will also give your videos the traffic boost.
Make a Catchy and Keyword Rich Title:
For your every video you need to use a related keyword that people are searching for finding that content which you have learned in the keyword research step.
But it’s the mistake most of the people make that they only add the keyword in their title but never optimize it for more clicks.
Let me show you a quick example:
Suppose I am using this keyword for my German dog training video “German shepherd dog training”
You don’t have to use it directly but add some spicy words at start or end of the keyword for making it more clickable like…
“Step-by-Step German Shepherd Dog Training (complete guide)”
It will not only help you in ranking on the Youtube but will also get you more clicks both from search queries and from the related section as well.
Always make your title more appealing and attractive so people only want to click on your video due to its title.
In my case, I normally write 8-10 titles for every video and then select the best one to use because it has much potential to increase your traffic.
Now this is a very clickable title, check…
Give Brief Video Description:
You need to write at least 200 words unique and compelling description for your every video before publishing.
It will give a better understanding of what your video is all about and Youtube will surely rank you in the suggested videos after judging your topic with the help of description.
The most common mistake most of the people are doing is adding the bunch of related keywords in the description for ranking.
Believe me, you just need to add your keyword naturally 2-3 times in a description and it will give them the very good guess about your topic.
Add Related Tags to your Videos
Again people are using this in very negative way and start adding the too many keyword keywords in the tags…
Most of them also try to trick here and add the non-related keywords which may help them in getting the clicks but you know well…
That people who don’t have interest in your videos may click on it but never going to watch it which is a negative signal to Youtube…
So, you just need to add the 4-5 related tags with one of your focus keyword here and you are good to go.
Speak your keywords in the Video
Google and Youtube are very intelligent now and they no more have to guess with your title, description, and tags that what’s your video is all about.
In fact, Youtube can understand English that what you are saying in the video…
Still, some experts say that they are not very perfect but they can understand 80% of your talking in the video and then rank you for the similar keywords as well.
So, when you are recording also consider speaking your keywords in the Video for the better understanding of Youtube like a keyword we are using “German shepherd dog training”.
Like this boy is saying…
Don’t Forget to Promote your Videos:
When your content is new on Youtube, the channel needs we could say the push start for getting some views and then getting some more views.
I must tell you the truth that you are not going to get thousands of views at starting in less time even you are doing all the things right, it will simply take time…
So, till you are not getting the organic views from the Youtube it’s very important to promote your video by the proven methods of getting views. You can also check this complete guide to video marketing.
If you are making your videos in the professional way listed here then you will be confident to share it on your social media profiles.
The better way of getting the views from Facebook is to find the related groups of your channel like “dog training” and join them all…
People make this mistake to share their videos without hanging out with the people there in groups and get banned by the tag of spamming.
So, when they approved you in the group you have to spend some time by doing some related posts there and then share your videos with cool titles.
If you are doing it in a right way, believe me, you will get the good amount of views on your every video and the shares too if your content is giving them their answers.
Again it will be considered as the spam by blog owners if you are just sharing your video URL in the blog comments everywhere.
The better method is to search for your keyword on Google like “dog training” and then open all the websites.
Read or watch their content and then write an appealing comment with something new about the topic, Pro tip is that mention the name of the blogger in the comment as well.
At last of comment, you could say like “Also have a look at my video of dog training or your topic” and leave your video link.
When you are posting the quality comments there is no way of rejecting your comment and you will get many views from different websites by just commenting… if you are starting out with blog commenting and have not much idea about, then checkout the step by step guide to blog commenting
Thousands of people are asking the questions about every topic on the forums like Quora and it’s not very difficult to get them on your videos.
You just have to find the related questions by searching it on Google or Quora and then give them the best answer after researching in the text…
At the end, you can say that for detail information about this “topic” you can watch this video and mention your video link there…
You might be thinking only that person will watch your video but it’s actually not. In fact, if your answer has many upvotes then every new person is going to watch your videos.
I was also thinking that it’s not going to work but believe me it’s huge, saying this with experience.
Bonus Tip: Get Huge Traffic from Reddit
Reddit is one of the biggest social networks from where you can drive the massive traffic to your content very easily.
When people start liking your content there and you reached to the first page of any category then you are going to get the thousands of views in just a day.
Yes, I got maximum of 41,262 views from Reddit overnight and it will work for you too…
Most of the people don’t know the exact way but I found a good fix…
Here’s the blowing Method
You simply have to make an account on the Reddit and then verify your email address like we do to other social networks.
The thing is that you can’t just start posting your video URL’s from the very first day, it’s in the policies of Reddit.
Long story short, you need more than 200 Post Karma and almost 50 Comment Karma to post your videos there which will be visible to everyone online.
The link and comment karma there is the user rating so they can confirm that if the user is trusted or not…
To be exact, if someone liked your post your post karma will increase and if they dislike it will decrease. Your comment karma will increase when someone liked your comments.
So, don’t be in hurry of posting your video links. Most of the people face difficulties in increasing the post karma but you will not…
So, after setting up your account…
- 1: Simply find some funny photos, gifs from the Internet for posting on Reddit.
- 2: Open this site and check by uploading there if that image is already posted on Reddit or not, if not keep it…
- 3: Make sure your photos or gifs you have selected are good enough to get some upvotes.
- 4: Now upload it to and get the link to that photo on Reddit.
- 5: Go to funny Subreddit and by clicking on “Share a link” post your photo there with a funny title too…
- 6: After posting refresh your page and go to funny Subreddit again and click on new posts and check if your post is appearing there…
- If it’s listed there in new posts then you are good to go.
- 7: You will notice that after some time people are upvoting or downvoting your post…
- Note: If you are getting the dislikes don’t remove your post. Also when your account is new don’t post more than 1 time in a day it will spam your account without notifying you.
- 8: If you got some likes, repeat the same steps for posting better images next day and after some days you surely will have more than 200 Post karma…
- 9: For increasing the comment karma, you need to open newly published posts and comment some good stuff there by keeping in mind that on getting downvote your comment karma will be negative…
- Well, the comments like “nice” or “good” are not going to work and you need to know the complete topic before commenting…
- It will take some time but you will get 50 comment karma very easily in this way.
- Note: If you can follow these steps accordingly you will get eligible for posting your links within 10-15 days but keep the warnings in mind too, their policies are very strict now.
- 10: When you are eligible for posting your video with 200 post karma and 50 comment karma, simply go to the videos section or subreddit and post your Youtube video with a related title because they are going to respond anyway…
If your content is good you will surely get much engagement on your channel in very less time…
Believe me or not this is a huge network for getting thousands of views in a matter of days on your newly launched channel.
It will not earn you the good amount of income but your video will also start ranking or trending on Youtube due to much traffic in less time on new content.
Now you know much about how Reddit works for getting traffic more than 60% of online marketers.
When you are trying to make money with Youtube then you must need to learn that how to get the attention of people on your content…
After getting people to your content, it’s your duty to stick them not till the end of your video but also make them watch your complete channel videos.
You will start getting success once you start seeing the things from the user’s shoulder and then start making the content accordingly…
At the start, it’s a slow process but once your channel has the authority and subscribers then you just have to upload the content and rest will be done by your users…
No matter it’s like, comment or sharing videos with other people…
But for reaching that stage you need to promote your content yourself at the starting in a way that people will love watching your videos and subscribe as well…
