Are you a newbie with a Youtube channel and in search of the best tools that would help you in gaining a lot of traffic, views and subscribers? Then this article is for you. Youtube has grown tremendously in the past few years when it comes to free video marketing. It’s been so successful that many people have been using Youtube to grow their small company, business or blog into big empires. Youtubers have been making videos there way to fame and fortune open for everyone who is willing to take the risk!

Here’s a handpicked list of the best YouTube tools to help you grow your channel and promote your videos. Just click through the blue links below to access.


Easily the most well known third-party YouTube tool is SocialBlade. Its free live sub count tool was rendered sort of useless for larger YouTube channels when the platform decided to round out subscriber numbers instead of giving an exact count. However, the tool’s top YouTuber lists, daily video view count, and estimated channel earnings still work great. To top it off, those features are free.


If you subscribe to a lot of YouTube channels, then your account is probably a bit of a mess. It’s crazy that there is no native feature to group or organize your subs. Enter PocketTube: YouTube Subscription Manager for iOS and Android, as well as an extension for Google Chrome and Firefox that integrates right into the YouTube website’s layout. This free app allows you to organize your YouTube subscriptions into groups so you can easily follow and watch the latest videos from your favorite channels. For creators, it’s a great way to keep tabs on channels in your niche.

Bookmark It / Smart Bookmarks for YouTube

If you ever wish you could bookmark specific parts in a YouTube video, you’re in luck. Bookmark It and Smart Bookmarks for YouTube are two free web browser extensions that do just that. You can even add notes to each bookmarked spot, which is great for when you’re putting together a script for your next YouTube video. Bookmark It is a bit sleeker and has a more generous free tier. Both have pro versions for under $5.


TubeMiner is a great new free tool that lets you search YouTube in a variety of ways that you can’t directly on the website. Creators can check out what YouTube videos are currently trending in each country around the world. You can also type in any topic and view videos pertaining to those keywords based on the year they were uploaded. But, perhaps the coolest TubeMiner feature is the ability to view what tags your favorite channels frequently use. Using this information, creators can get new content ideas and up their search engine game by learning what’s working for similar channels.


This YouTube-certified tool helps brands maximize their video marketing strategy’s potential. Instead of the number of subscribers, this YouTube marketing tool places a huge emphasis on metrics like tags, watch-time, and social media shares.

It’s a must-have tool for managing your channel from mobile devices on the go, which is necessary for anyone who takes their channel seriously.

You shouldn’t need to find a computer every time you want to handle something on your page, especially if it’s time sensitive.

YouTube Studio allows you to monitor the performance of your channel with analytics in real time. You can respond to comments and filter them.

Receive push notifications directly to your mobile devices with alerts for important events.

You can control your monetization settings, thumbnails, scheduling, and other details directly from the app. This tool allows you to update your channel from anywhere.


If you want to promote your YouTube content on other channels, which I highly recommend, Woobox is the ultimate tool for you.


As I said before, social media is a great place to repurpose your video content. It’s a strategy I use personally.

Woobox lets you set up all your YouTube videos on a Facebook tab.

Now your Facebook friends and fans can scroll through and view your YouTube content directly from Facebook. They can do this without being redirected to another page.

Choose a featured video to be the first thing your audience sees when they navigate to this tab.

Woobox is a great way for you to get more subscribers. Eventually, you’ll be able to convert your social media followers into customers.

People may not be navigating to your YouTube channel daily. But there’s a good chance they’re active on Facebook.

Now you can expose your content to a wider audience without having to rely on them visiting YouTube to watch your videos.


One of the greatest things about being a content creator these days is that there are a ton of ways to interact with your fans and grow your channel. With a number of services out there for just about any functionality you can imagine, I thought that it would be helpful to put together a list of my favorite tools that have helped me to grow my channel!
