A simple but creative YouTube channel design!

A boring YouTube channel can make it hard for you to gain followers thus minimizing your chance to gather a considerable amount of views. You don’t need to hire a professional graphic designer to get it done since creating a simple but stunning YouTube Channel Page is relevantly easy. The ideal YouTube background size is 2000x1500. Simply use Photoshop, Gimp, or any other image manipulation application to create a YouTube background that best describes your channel. If you don’t have enough free time to get it done, there are free Youtube backgrounds downloadable online so be sure to check them out. For your profile image, choose the logo of your company or anything that best represents your niche. Don’t forget that its color scheme should blend well with your profile’s background to make your overall page pleasing to the eyes.

One of the best Adobe Photoshop Tutorials on YouTube!

Creating videos that are related to each other is an ideal setup. This would give you a better chance in transforming a unique visitor from one of your many videos to views for the others as well. Don’t consider searching for the right niche an easy task since you need to consider various factors in the process which includes your expertise and likes, the niche’s popularity and salability, and current competitions. I highly recommend video tutorials as many are considering YouTube nowadays as a perfect place for learning. For example, make videos on how to create exciting effects in Photoshop or edit videos through Adobe after Effects. This type of videos often have constant views as more and more people are searching for free sources of knowledge online and improve their skills in the process.

A successful YouTube video can make its viewers look like this cute little boy!

Videos that seemed to be unfinished often sell well on YouTube. If they are really well-made, viewers don’t have any other option but to subscribe and patiently wait for their succeeding part. Nevertheless, this approach is easier said than done as it requires careful planning. Don’t simply make video out of one or two random thoughts. Discover what majority of YouTube videos want and come up with a unique and enticing video about it.

It’s a given that research is boring and tiresome. Everyone would probably agree if I say that it’s the last thing a YouTube owner would want to do. But then again, you are bound to reap its fruits in the near future if carried out well. By persistent in searching for trending topics and creating worthwhile videos, your YouTube account is guaranteed to have thousands of views before you even notice.

Some of the best sites to market your YouTube videos.

To guarantee success in YouTube, using the increasing power of social networking platforms such as Facebook and Twitter is a must. You can also use a blog or online writing sites such as Hubpages and Squidoo for this purpose. These sites not only expose your video to thousands of possible viewers but also help in improving your video’s page rank. Yes, YouTube videos also appear in search engine results so don’t forget to do basic SEO practices and boost your video’s PR. Regardless how good your video is, all your efforts will be worthless if it can’t reach the right audience. If it’s about the latest car models, share your video on Facebook pages about cars or post on Twitter while using trending car-related hashtags.

One of the funniest YouTube comments ever!

Leaving relevant comments on videos of your interest can help gather more subscribers and views as well. Don’t consider this as something you are obliged to do since it can be fun! Leave an honest comment about an enticing video and watch another. Spend at least an hour every day doing so and you’ll surely get the attention of many in no time. Never try to directly promote your YouTube account since it will only leave a bad impression. Watching YouTube videosis a worthwhile activity especially if you focus on those that can help improve your skills such as video tutorials and guides. YouTube can also be your best weapon to fight boredom and a perfect source of information about the latest news worldwide.It’s a win-win scenario if you ask me.

Be an exceptional salesman like Mr.Popper!

Comments and feedback are good ways to know whether making more videos like the one you recently posted is a brilliant idea or not. Respond to every comment as much as possible. Being involved in the community not only attracts more views to your videos but also keep you aware as to what aspects in your videos to improve. Whether it’s positive or not, be happy about receiving a comment since it only signifies that the user considered your video worthy of his time. Be modest in replying even to harsh comments. Imagine yourself as a salesman, who is always composed regardless how his prospect mocks almost everything about the product he is offering.

A video best watched in high definition!

Majority of YouTube users and the internet community as a whole want HD videos. Who would choose a crappy version if a clear and crisp one is available? I am aware that low quality YouTube videos are intended for audiences with slow internet connection but they’re almost less than one percent of the entire internet population. Even they would prefer seeing videos on YouTube in high-definition if given the chance. Internet speed is constantly upgraded as new WAN devices and services are introduced in the market so look forward to the future where every internet user can download a gig in just a few minutes. Make videos in high-definition and you’ll surely be thankful about making such decision in the near future!

Your YouTube viewers should at least feel the same way as this cute kid.

Constant update is a must since it only takes one push of a button to unsubscribe. With a decreasing amount of subscribers, your views are bound to get lower as well. Posting one quality video every week is a good pace. Doing it daily is idea but don’t do so if the quality of your videos is compromised in the process. A video packed with all the components everyone wants to see will beat hundreds with nothing but crap. Creating a successful YouTube videos require careful planning. You need to come up with an exciting storyline. The flow of your video should very easy to understand but never boring. Surprise your audience especially on the video’s ending. Leaving it hanging is also a great idea to encourage them in coming back for more.

PSY: The YouTube sensation!
PSY: The YouTube sensation!

Gangnam Style became a YouTube hit mainly because of two factors. First is its uniqueness to the extent that others consider it as weird. No other video features such a crazy dance step and out of this world scenes. Though majority of the internet community can’t understand the song, it’s lively and catchy beat makes up for it. Second, the video has enough quality and fun enough to be shared among family, friends, and colleagues so it’s not a surprise why it managed to hit a billion views within a small time frame. So do you need to dance like there’s no tomorrow to acquire teeming YouTube views like PSY’s Gangnam Style? The answer is yes and no. Yes, you need to exert effort and dedicate time, effort, and money in creating an awesome video just like what they did. And no since you don’t need to embarrass yourself. Don’t even think of dancing on a video and posting it on YouTube if you lack talent or dislikes will flood your account. Use what you are good at and create videos that viewers can watch over and over again!

Oppa Gangnam Style!
