- Focus On The Title And Thumbnail
These are the first two steps that will lead towards the promotion of your videos. Your title and thumbnail are kind of the agents that will promote you.
These are the two things that the viewers look upon before choosing your video to watch. Whenever you search for something on YouTube, you mostly prefer these videos which have a catchy title and a creative thumbnail, right? So this is what everyone other looks out for as well. Coming to the first, the title of your video should be a catchy and descriptive one. It should give a brief idea about what your videos are all about. You can make your titles using the keywords that place your videos among the most preferred ones.
And the thumbnail is more preferred as compared to the title because our eyes respond to the visuals more. So try to make a creative and well-designed thumbnail if you want more audience.
- Make Good Intro and Outro
The introduction of your videos and how you conclude them also help in promoting your videos to the next level.
Your intro makes people watch your videos to the end and the outro makes them visit you again and again. Coming to the intro, it is the gate that welcomes the viewers and hence should be good. The first 30-40 seconds of your videos will decide if the viewers will stick with your videos or not. So try the make the first 30 seconds of your videos as good as you can. These 30 seconds should have enough suspense for the audience to be forced to watch your videos.
And then comes the outro. The outro should be compelling so that the viewers should leave with the feeling that your videos are awesome. You can end your video with some custom wallpapers with a great song!
- Use Social Media
Social media is by far the best platform where you can promote yourself. Your social media handles will prove to be very useful!

- Take Help From SEO
As I have told about a hundred times, SEO is your digital Godfather in anything you choose, be it business or YouTube.
And you can use this YouTube SEO feature to promote your videos to a large number of the audience regardless of your subscribers. SEO primarily means Search Engine Optimisation. This is a feature of Google which filters and optimizes the search result of the viewers and shows them the ones which have SEO feature enabled. And the best fact is that those videos are out on the top without taking into consent the content quality or views or subscribers of the uploader. Thus it is a great way of promoting your videos. You just have to enable the YouTube SEO on the account section and will be good to go.
After you do so, any video you post will be put among the most view ones or the top ones. And when the viewers search about that particular topic, they will find your video on the top list!
- Reach Out To Your Audience
Your audience is your key to the promotion of your videos. And thus you should concentrate on them.
For this, you need to have good social media relations with your followers. If you do not have, then you should start establishing so. Once you have a good relationship with your followers, you can easily ask them to promote your videos on their respective accounts. And you can gift them with good rewards so that they keep doing for you. This will be a great method as well!
