Marketing Your YouTube Channel

Marketing Your YouTube ChannelA lot of YouTubers are struggling out there because of YouTube’s new rules. I noticed ever since YouTube revealed their new rule everybody was going the sub for sub route. I have to admit, at the time I thought it was a good idea too. Not anymore though, which is why I produced my YouTube Subscribers Sub For Sub Idea? video.  Don’t worry, I’m getting to the marketing your YouTube channel bit shortly.

So, in that video, I explain why I thought the sub for sub idea sucked. I also stipulated how the most important issue to focus on is the 4,000 hours. I mention SEO, keyword research amongst other things marketing. Personally, I think marketing YouTube channel is going to be really difficult. A lot more difficult than promoting your blog post. The reason I’m saying this is because I believe YouTube favours their more prominent partners showing their video before newbie videos. Makes perfect sense considering YouTube stands to make money from their videos.

As bloggers, we understand the importance of SEO and keywords and such. Commenting on other blogs is probably the easiest way to promote our blogs via the link juice. If those blogs use Commentluv, you even have the added advantage of promoting your keywords.

Using Blog Commenting For Marketing Your YouTube Channel

So, here is what I’m getting at, that YouTubers comment on blogs but instead of using their blogs URL they use the one to their YouTube channel or even a particular video.

So, here is my question to you. As a blogger, are you willing to accept a YouTube video URL in the comment form as long as they leave quality comments? See this post in regards to what I regard as quality comments.

As to this blog, I’m more than happy for YouTubers using my blogs to market their YouTube Channel. As long as their channel doesn’t fail standard criteria like not being porn or hate-related etc.

  1. Thank you for your valuable post but its really work? I have a youtube channel Which has 100 subscriptions Please tell me how Do I increase my Youtube channel subscription and views on My videos.

    1. Twitter:
      Hey Amrit, did you watch my video at all? All I can say is what I am doing. I am producing more, hopefully, quality videos, than what I previously did. Because of that both my subscriptions and views are increasing.

  2. Twitter:
    Some useful content in this article so thanks for this. I’ve never been a fan of sub for sub since it’s not organic and authentic really for building a genuine community. The rules are getting crazy with YT but I think there’s place to grow with persistence, authenticity and different content.

    1. Twitter:
      Hey Priti, yep, these are crazy times on YouTube these days. YouTube sure has made it a lot harder for the small YouTubers to monetise their sites. I’m sure a lot of them have walked away, which is a real shame.

  3. Twitter:
    Hello, Peter,

    First of all thanks for sharing the useful content over here. I’m having a youtube channel which is having 150 subscriptions. Looking for techniques to make it 1000.

    1. Twitter:
      Akhi, personally I don’t think there is an easy way to gain quality subscribers and that’s exactly what you need. Read my comment to Amrit to see what I’m referring to.

  4. Twitter:
    Regarding the links people leave, if it’s not a spam/porn/drug type of link I’m not too concerned. I have seen a lot of junk links and I don’t approve them.

    1. Twitter:
      Hey Greg, welcome to WassupBlog. The first thing I do is examine the comment. For me, it has to be related to the general content of the post. As long as it’s related and I can see they’ve actually read the post I’m pretty lenient.

      If it’s weak content, I delete it. If I consider it to be spam, I spam it so that it doesn’t appear anymore.

  5. Twitter:
    Your blog is really cool. I have a youtube account that I started way way back like 8 yeas ago and I just recently started posting Youtube videos again and this article is really helpful. Thanks a lot! And yes I could not agree more with the video url. I think it has a lot of potential.

    1. Twitter:
      Hey Nishie,

      I’m glad you found this article of some use. What is your YouTube channel about?

      1. Twitter:
        My personal channel, nishiefernandez, is about travel vlogs and music covers while my other channel, Tokyo Grand Renovation is about interior design ideas, construction and the likes. Feel free to check it out when you have the time.

        1. Twitter:
          Hey Nishie, both your channels look to be in the early stages. I like the two videos on your Tokyo Grand Renovation channel.

  6. Twitter:
    Hmmm… truthfully, I’ve removed YouTube links in the past or sent the comments to spam. I’ve done it mainly for three reasons. One, because the comments have been lousy, which you know is a peccadillo of mine. Two, because I have no idea where those links are going unless I click on them to check them out. Three, because, like a lot of comments, I’d be unsure if the videos they were sending me to were actually theirs; if the avatar on their comment didn’t match up with the video (if I clicked on it at all) I’ve feel like someone was trying to use me; that ain’t happening.

    Of course, the way to get around that is to be a good and consistent commenter on those blogs. For instance, you’ve been commenting on my blog since I created it 10 years ago. If you put a YouTube link in I’d know it was yours because I trust you; you’ve built up trust equity. New people; they haven’t earned the honor so I’d probably remove the link if the comment was good or send the entire thing to spam if the comment was suspect.

    1. Twitter:
      Hey Mitch, good commenting is paramount for me also. For every comment I accept I delete or spam several others.

      I always check the sites of new commenters, by hovering the mouse over the link, before accepting them. I don’t mind clicking on the link to have a quick look at the video. If all is good I have no problem at all accepting the YouTube link.
