Share a personal story

Sharing your personal story shows your vulnerability to your audiences, which could be a good thing because you’ll be able to connect with them on a deeper level.

Let your audience see your world through their eyes and take the journey with them as you continue on your path to creating more videos.

Create video responses

Everybody is entitled to their own opinions, right? Why not make your opinions and responses into good use?

Making a response that is funny, creative, and smart might get your videos trending online that will give you the recognition you are aiming for.

Collaborate with others

Do you know some YouTubers near your area?

Having connections is important for the road to fame.

If you are the lesser known YouTuber, make sure you don’t just simply capitalize on others’ success.

Reach out to them and be humble and ask if they are open for a collaboration. And before doing this, remember to have a planned content in mind that would benefit both parties.

Post regularly

Always have a schedule when posting your videos. Having a schedule can help your audience to know when to visit and watch your contents and have a day to look forward to.

Launch ad campaigns

However, maybe you need to approach your promotions strategy a different way. Maybe it’s time to resort to paid ads.
