A 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.
