How to Build a YouTube Audience
Join Social Media Platforms
You can join social media platforms including YouTube. Search for topics similar to yours and join their conversations. You can make comments on videos that interest you. You can also commend an influencer or content creator.
Also, make a reference to your video so that interested viewers can check it up. However, make sure that the viewers will find what will genuinely interest them.
Choose a Group to View Your Video First
You can release early access to your videos so that your subscribers can be the first to view them. You may do this through emails or newsletters. You can send your audience the links to the videos. This privilege will make them long to receive more emails or newsletters from you. Then you can release it on social media so that it can reach a larger audience.
Let the Videos Have the Right Context
You need to give clear descriptions for your videos. State clearly what the video is all about. Make the title stand out clearly so that the audience can know at first glance, what problem it’s going to solve for them.
Also, state any information the audience will need to know even before they click on the video. You can also include thumbnail images that will give the audience a view of what to expect from the videos.
The length of the video is also important. It is not necessary to prolong the video with unnecessary scenes that do not add value to the audience. The first ten seconds of the video will go a long way to determine if the audience will watch the videos to the end. If the beginning is not convincing enough, they may not stay on your channel until the end of the video.
