PART3. Increasing Organic Views
Use annotations. Annotations are an amazing way to increase your video views. They can link one video to another, or they can link a video to your playlists or channels. An annotation can tell viewers to link to a different similar video if they like the one they’re watching, and can keep them viewing all of your different videos for hours.
Get subscribers. Getting subscribers is an excellent way of guaranteeing that more viewers will watch your videos. If someone subscribes to you, then they will see all of your newly-uploaded videos on their homepage, and they can even select to be notified via email whenever you’ve posted a new video. If you want to get more subscribers, you can ask people to subscribe at the end of a video, include an annotation that encourages people to subscribe to your video, or even ask people to subscribe to you over email.
Ask viewers to ‘Like’ or ‘Share’ the video. At the end or anytime during the video, ask the viewers to like it or share it by mentioning things like ‘it would take 0.12 second to hit that like button’. Its because most of the time, even after people like the video, they don’t notice it.
- Say something in your video that many people have an opinion on and then asking people to click like if they agree or to comment if they disagree. For example at the end of a video about your dog you could say “I don’t think dogs should be on a leash when in public. Hit like if you agree, or tell us what you think in the comments”.
- Simply asking a question in your video can also result in an increase in comments.
Create playlists. Playlists are lists of videos that play one after the other, just like a playlist of music. If you create an entire playlist of videos, then viewers will be more likely to view more of your videos. For example, if you create a playlist of different videos that display different gymnastics skills, your viewers can watch your video about cartwheels and then transition right into your video about handstands.
Comment a lot. Make sure to be nice. Some people might click on the commenter’s channel to check out their videos.
