Tips for Growing Your YouTube Channel
Commit to Posting to YouTube Multiple Times Per Week
Recent reports have shown that YouTube channels that post more than once a week are performing much better and getting more recommended views. If possible, post a video to YouTube three or more times per week, especially if you’re just starting out and trying to build an audience. Keeping a regular schedule with multiple posts per week can quickly raise your channel in the algorithm.
Creating a ton of content in the beginning on similar topics will help your channel perform well in the algorithm, and also create a library of content that will usher viewers from one video to another, boosting your watch time and giving them a reason to subscribe.
Develop a Sustainable Video Production Workflow
You might be making Oscar-worthy short films and videos, but if each video takes 6 months to produce, your videos aren’t going to grow your YouTube channel. Regular video uploads at familiar times are what bring people back for more.
Whatever kind of videos you want to make, choose content that you can develop and create on a regular basis and find ways to streamline your production workflow, whether it’s setting up a studio, creating an editing template, or hiring assistants or a production team. Keep refining your topics and production workflow until your process is a well-oiled machine.
Tip: One of the best things you can do is set up a small video studio so when it’s time to shoot, you can simply turn on the lights and get started.
Begin Each Video With an Interesting Hook
How you hook viewers depends on you and your content. If a video features a project of any kind, show the end result first. A stunning result makes people more interested to see how you achieved it. This approach is great for DIY and makeover videos. For instance, Cute Girls Hairstyles always begins by showing the end result before explaining how to create a hairstyle.
Stories are another way to pique viewers’ interest. People are hardwired for stories. When you start your video with a story, people will naturally want to stick around to see what happens. Plus, personal stories endear the presenter to the viewer and can often provide a helpful segue to more complicated ideas.
To demonstrate, Michael from VSauce is a master at starting his videos with an intriguing story or idea that leads into the subject matter.
Keep Titles and Opening Credits Short
Attention spans are short. A long title or credit sequence at the beginning of a video can cause people to lose interest. Also, a long opener discourages binge watching because people don’t want to watch the same long sequence over and over.
Instead, make your opening title and credits short and punchy. Make the whole opener no longer than 5 seconds. As a great example, Crystal Joy’s title sequence is short, sweet, and delightfully quirky.
Add End Screens to Promote Your Videos, Channel, or Website
End screens are interactive graphics that link to another video, playlist, channel, or web page, or prompt someone to subscribe to your channel. As the feature name suggests, you can add end screens only in the last 20 seconds of your video, so you have to plan where the end screens will appear.
One option is to frame the subject of your video in such a way that you have room for end screens. Talking over the end screen will continue to engage the viewer.
What Exactly Is a YouTube Content Creator?
This is the burning question. What is a YouTube content creator? YouTubers, as they’re commonly referred to, are individuals who produce content to upload to the social media platform YouTube.
YouTube is, after all, built for content creators.
There are all sorts of YTC’s who focus on various categories. Comedy skits, music and movie reviews, travel vlogs, style advice, etc.
You get the idea, there can be YouTube channels for anything and everything, and the content creators are who create the content, upload it and run the channel.
Another way of thinking about successful YouTube content creators is as influencers. Just like influencers who post on platforms like Instagram and TikTok, YTC’s are influencers who use YouTube as their main platform for posting content.
How to create a new YouTube channel in 5 simple steps
Making a successful YouTube channel starts with making a YouTube channel. Here’s how to build your account.
Step 1: Create a Google account
If you use Gmail, Google Maps, or Google Play, you probably already have a Google account… so skip ahead to the next step.
If you’re starting from scratch, head here to sign up for a new Google account.
The name and email address won’t be publicly linked to your brand, so don’t worry about keeping those on-message. This is just your key to get in the YouTube door.
Step 2: Create a YouTube account
With your Google account, you’re automatically set up with a personal YouTube account. But to use YouTube for your business, you’ll want to set up a Brand Account.
Just go to your YouTube account page, click Create a Channel, and then enter a name for your Brand Account. You’re in!
When you create a YouTube Brand Account, you can give multiple people admin access and customize the name and appearance to match your brand.
Another cool thing about Brand Accounts: they allow you to access YouTube Analytics, which offers super helpful insight about who’s watching your videos and what content is popular. (Learn more in our post on how to use YouTube for marketing.)
Step 3: Customize your YouTube channel
Time to make this sweet new social media profile your own.
In your channel dashboard, click Customize channel. Go through the three tabs — Layout, Branding and Basic Info — to enter information that will help optimize your channel for audience discovery.
When filling out this information, use descriptive keywords that will help your account appear in searches.
Keywords can include your channel’s topics, your industry, questions your content can answer or products featured.
Under Branding, you’ll have the opportunity to upload your channel art and icons to give your channel a unique look. One that, ideally, aligns with your overall brand and visually connects this YouTube account with your other social media platforms and web presence.
We’ve got some templates for YouTube channel art right here to get you started.
Step 4: Upload your first YouTube video
Well, this is exciting. You’re on the cusp of becoming a YouTube content creator! I’m not crying, you’re crying.
To put your first video out into the world, hit the Create button in the top-right corner and follow the instructions.
Step 5: Make your YouTube channel discoverable
Like the old saying goes: If you have amazing content on YouTube but nobody sees it… what’s the point?
What Makes Content Creators on YouTube Different From One Another?
Obviously, not all content creators are the same. Here are some things that differentiate YTC’s…
A content creator’s niche is the category in which their channel falls into. It helps determine what kind of content they’ll make and who their target audience will be.
Technically, anyone who has an active YouTube channel is a YTC, but you’ll see a lot of variation in the sizes of YouTube creator’s followings.
Some channels have single-digit subscribers and some have tens of millions of subscribers.
There are a lot of YouTube content creators who are on the center stage of their channel. You’ll see them in all of their videos or at least hear them speaking.
That’s very common, but there are other creators who prefer to let the subject of their videos soak up all of the attention.
If you check out some different channels on YouTube, you’ll see a wide array of production styles.
Some YTC’s have a DIY approach and prefer to film everything themselves using a phone, laptop or video camera.
Other content creators shoot high budget videos and hire production companies, editors, animators, videographers, etc.
There isn’t really a right or wrong way to do it. It all depends on your ideal aesthetic, your target audience and your budget.
Home. Life. Creativity. Content Creator for Youtube is a dream machine to help people create, watch, and share more of what they love.
