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.
Today YouTube announced the arrival of its new YouTube Music app on both iOS and Android devices. This news quickly follows last month’s announcement of YouTube Red, and may prove to be a useful product for people that primarily listen to music on YouTube. Read on for a quick overview on the new app, including its pros and cons for both fans and musicians.
Collaborations can be a very effective way to introduce your channel to new viewers and give them a reason to subscribe to your channel. While searching for similar channels and sending them messages within YouTube may sometimes work, most channel owners don’t check their YouTube emails and notifications frequently. You may be able to track down more effective contact info by searching for their email address or Twitter handle, but wouldn’t it be helpful to know exactly what channels are already interested in collaborating with you?
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.
It’s important to know who your fans are, and it can be even more valuable to know who your channel’s most influential subscribers are. Identifying those subscribers that have massive followings can help you explore novel ways to reach new people. If someone has taken the time to subscribe to your YouTube channel and wants to stay up-to-date on your latest videos, there’s a good chance they’ll find your content valuable enough to consider telling their fan base about it.
Watch time is one of the most important but misunderstood concepts that affect the health of your YouTube channel and videos. While many video creators focus exclusively on their view counts, YouTube prioritizes watch time (and not view counts) when it’s deciding how favorably to treat your video in search results and featured placements across the YouTube platform.
