Getting youtube subs can be a daunting task for many of us. It can take so much blood, sweat and tears – figuratively speaking – to get to even a 100 subscribers, let alone the millions that a special few have. It turns out that getting a large number of youtube subs is not exactly that difficult. There are services like YTBlaster that can help you with gaining subs. Now be warned that there is no magical formula that will make you one of the most subscribed YouTubers out there. This article will attempt to do is to ensure that you have all the information you need to get more subscribers. How you choose to act on the information and get more subscribers is entirely on you!
Plan your videos thoroughly – don’t upload until it is perfect
One of the biggest turn-offs, when you watch a video on youtube, is finding the person on the video acting out a poorly made script and/or stammering all the way through. If you are not 100 percent satisfied with how the video has come out then do not upload it. Hastily uploaded videos tell the viewers that you do not really care about the content which is a big no-no. It is also imperative that you stick to the topic at hand. If someone is watching your video then chances are that it is the title that took them to it. Going off-topic would instantly put them off and you can be sure that they will not be clicking the subscribe button.
Upload frequently – ideally, once a week
Imagine that you have just started this amazing vlogging channel on youtube. Your content is of great quality and engages your youtube subs. However, if you upload videos too infrequently then they will soon start to lose interest and gradually drift away. Continuity is key. You do not have to upload 10 videos a day, but as a rule of the thumb, it is ideal that you upload a video at least once a week. Of course, this does not mean that you upload something just for the sake of uploading. Quality content that is engaging and frequent will go a long way in retaining your youtube subs.
Keep the videos short
If you have a look at the most popular videos on youtube, you will find that they last less than 5 minutes on average. Intuitively, this makes sense. Your friend comes to you with a youtube video and asks you to have a look. The first thing that you will do after seeing the title is check out the length of that video, even if subconsciously. If it is too long your initial reaction will be resistance. This becomes worse if the video takes time to get going and the first few minutes are boring. Simply put, size matters – keep them crisp and short! Make your youtube subs want more.
Offer gifts and giveaways at the end of your video
If you offer a few prizes at the end of a video for correctly answering a question or something of that sort, it will help keep your youtube subs hooked onto your channel. They will want to keep coming back for more as they now have an additional incentive. Now this does not have to be something overly expensive that will burn a hole in your pocket. T-shirts, bags or something of that kind will work just fine. Preferably, it should be something with your channel name or something that relates it to your channel. This will help build a loyal subscriber base.
Pay attention to the description
Most people tend to read the description before watching the video. Therefore, it is in your best interests to take it seriously and write something that convinces your (potential) youtube subs that the video will have something worth their while.
There you have it. This is not an exhaustive list by any means, but it will do to help you get started. The most important thing is to be patient and keep focusing on making and uploading quality content frequently. Remember, even the most popular Youtubers today once had no subscribers. Good luck!
