One of the most effective ways to increase your video view count is to have YouTube recommend your videos and promote them on their platform. There are several places on YouTube where your video can be recommended to people that weren’t looking for it, but how does YouTube choose which videos to promote?
If you create outros and end cards for most of your videos, you know it can be a tedious manual process if you upload a lot of videos.

YouTube has quietly released a new feature called “End Screens” that are meant to keep viewers engaged after a video ends. The feature is still in beta and only available to select channels, but will soon be available to all channels. This will be a powerful tool that every channel should put to use to increase engagement and watch time, so read on for more information on exactly how it works.

Everyone knows the importance of view counts on YouTube videos. Since YouTube likes to promote videos that are already getting a lot of watch time, it’s extremely important that your videos get a lot of views as quickly as possible once you release them. One of the best ways to do that is to make sure that your subscribers find out about every new video you release as soon as you drop them, and a new YouTube feature makes that extremely easy to do.
Programming strategies are important for maintaining a successful YouTube channel that will keep your audience returning on a regular basis and engaged while they watch your videos. The strategies we will be covering in this article will help you program your channel’s content in a way that optimizes its performance and enhances the overall viewer experience. We’ve already covered Playlists, an invaluable tool for organizing your content and turning one view into multiple views. In addition to playlists, YouTube’s Sections feature allows you to customize your channel’s layout so that you can organize your videos thematically, highlight your newest and most popular videos, and direct viewers to watch multiple videos and playlists.
YouTube Playlists are an important tool because they allow you to organize your videos and, most importantly, turn one view into many views. Playlists help you take control of how your videos are displayed and discovered, letting you choose which content appears prominently alongside your video rather than leaving it up to YouTube. They also give you an easy way to surface and share the content that you want your viewers to check out, including your own videos and videos from other YouTube channels.
One of the coolest (but also most underutilized) tools YouTube provides for its creators is the YouTube Creator Studio smartphone app, available for both iOS and Android. Released just about a year ago, this is where YouTube debuted features like real-time analytics and is a very useful tool for managing videos on-the-fly and engaging in comments on your content.
There has been a lot of press in the past few weeks about the prominence of video content on Facebook, and many video creators have been asking whether or not they should be uploading videos directly to Facebook. Many people are finding that their videos on Facebook get much higher view counts than the same video on YouTube when they upload it to both platforms. While Facebook is a very important platform, Facebook views and YouTube views are very different so let’s take a closer look at both.
YouTube now allows you to select which video your subscribers see most prominently when returning to your channel. This feature is called “What To Watch Next” and it’s very useful for helping highlight your most important videos to users that have already subscribed to your YouTube channel.
