How to legitimately boost your YouTube video views
People post YouTube videos all of the time to make their businesses more successful but they come to the quick realization that you need views and engagement in order to stay on top of the search rankings within the platform. A lot of YouTubers are drawn to the services that guarantee YouTube views for a penny, but you need to understand that the traffic you're purchasing for a fraction of what you could get through a PPC platform is just going to hurt your channel.
Many times I've come across "100,000 No Drop Guaranteed YouTube Views!" and they sell their service for $10 or $20. If you could really get legitimate viewers for that price, don't you think everyone would be rich by now? The traffic you're purchasing is simply a server running some software that imitates a view, and if you think Google or YouTube is dumb, then keep purchasing it lol. Your views will drop almost immediately after they figure out what you're doing, and your channel will suffer because of it, so I always suggest legitimate ways of boosting your views when I'm talking to customers.
Below are a few ways you can legitimately boost your YouTube views and always be in the good graces of the YouTube admins.
Adwords for your video
Adwords and YouTube videos go together very well because not many people are actually doing this combination. Sure, they will all optimize their videos in order to rank higher within the SERPs, but not many of those people are actually running pay per click campaigns through Google in order to bring people in to watch what they've produced.
You can simply target the entire world and select some broad keywords that you know will work well, then set your CPC at something around $0.03 and you should get a lot of viewers if your budget is $5 to $10 a day. Yes, this cost money just like any other PPC platform, but if you want to be successful you'll have to spend some sort of cash in order to get more in return.
Facebook ads for your video
Sending traffic directly to your YouTube video from Facebook isn't all that difficult. You simply set up an ad campaign through Facebook and enter the URL of your YouTube video. You can also publish a post to your Facebook page and boost that post in order to bring people to your page, who will like it, and they will also watch your video
You can usually get your CPC on Facebook down to $0.01 if you set your bid at $0.05 and only target third world countries, but you never know if a language barrier is going to be a problem so just target everyone who speaks your language and sees how low you can get your CPC after a couple of weeks
Optimizing your video for search rankings
I touched on this briefly above, and it's probably not a shocker to anyone who publishes any sort of content online, but you'll need to optimize your videos if you want to get the best return for the time you invested. If you're not optimizing your videos, you likely won't get any natural or organic views through YouTubes search function. Instead, you'll see your video get a few views here and there because of deep searches, and the top listings are skyrocketing with views. Remember, people don't usually search past the first page of results, so you'll want to be where they are searching in order to get them to your videos
Interacting with your viewers and commenters
A lot of big YouTubers fall short on this part because they simply can't keep up with the comments, which is understandable, but that doesn't mean you have to ignore all of your followers when they comment and you're just starting out. If you have 100,000 or less subscribers, you likely can keep up with the comments section on each of your videos. Sure, you'll probably be talking to complete strangers in the comments for a few hours a day, but it's worth it since you're building relationships with these people and they will be more loyal because you took time to respond to them
There are plenty of legitimate ways to boost your YouTube traffic and followers, and above are just a few of the key ones that not many people are doing, so get out there and test them out You don't have to spend thousands of dollars before you YouTube videos gets seen a million times, you just have to boost it enough so it can start to walk on its own and gain organic views through the search engines as well as the search function within YouTube itself
