Optimize Everything

As with most social marketing, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), is paramount. With YouTube’s unique algorithm in mind, double checking details such as your video’s tags can make all the difference. Use bold keywords and attention-grabbing titles to up traffic to your page, and make sure you have the content to keep the engagement going once there.

Cross-promote

Over saturation fatigue is a real thing, so posting once a week or so (with a set schedule), is often the best route. Invest in good equipment and knowledgeable editors, and your views are much more likely to increase.
