7 Ways To Quickly Grow Your Youtube Subscribers

With any social media platform, followers are vital to building a loyal fan base. In addition, YouTube states that subscribers tend to watch twice as much video as compared to other users. However, not every viewer will subscribe to your channel. Using these effective strategies could help you convert YouTube users into your channel’s subscribers.

Below are 7 great ways to attract the first 1000 subscribers to your channel:

1. Create an engaging channel trailer

A channel trailer is a great promotional tool and a great way to get more subscribers.YouTube allows creators to upload a channel trailer on the channel’s home page. The trailer should introduce new views to your channel.It provides an insight into what they can expect from your channel.
A channel trailer will auto-play when a non-subscriber visits your landing page.
Below is an example of a good channel trailer:

2. Use call to action annotations

Viewers often don’t subscribe to a channel after watching a video they like. Annotations make it easier to compel viewers to subscribe. They enable viewers to perform an action while watching a video. Several YouTubers have noticed a spike in channel subscriptions after adding annotations to their videos.

3. Cross-promote your YouTube channel

Establish your presence on all digital platforms to enhance discoverability. Using social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest regularly, can greatly increase the amount of traffic going to your channel. Post 15 second teasers of your videos on Instagram to direct more traffic to your channel. You can use Buffer to schedule your posts to all social media networks regularly.

Sites such as Reddit and Stumbleupon are crowded with users and communities looking for new content. Post a link to your video with appropriate tags to attract new users to your YouTube channel.

And don't forget about music blogs. You should also reach out to blogger and build a network that will help enhance video views by embedding your videos in their posts. Reach out to those bloggers who write about topics related to your channel. This will direct the blog’s readership community to your YouTube channel.

4. Collaborate with other YouTubers

Collaborations with other YouTubers can be a great way to increase both users exposure and following. Collab videos expose your channel to your partners’ audiences and subscribers. Look out for YouTubers who create similar videos and approach with a plan to make a video. You can either make a collaborative video together or make separate videos. Do not forget to give each other in-video shout outs if you choose to do the latter.

This is a good example of a collaborative YouTube project:

5. Optimize your videos to improve search rankings

Develop an unbreakable bond with your viewers so that they keep coming back to your channel.

7. Consistently upload videos

Regular video uploads will help keep your following interested in your videos. You should upload a new video at least once every two weeks. Dedicate yourself to posting schedule, for instance, post videos around the same time every day or every week. Viewers will visit your channel at the designated time to watch your videos. Publish your posting schedule in your channel description, video description, video intros or outros and all social networks. Try to record at least 3 months worth of videos before you start your first upload so that there is no delays in posting.

Consistency ensures you upload new videos regularly. Additionally, experts have reported a positive correlation between the number of videos and the number of subscribers. Therefore, upload more videos to attract more subscribers.
