How To Get More Views On YouTube

If you are a YouTuber, you know about the platform’s algorithm. More views on your videos means that it will be promoted higher in a search list to potential viewers. Hence, it’s imperative to do everything possible to get as many views on your videos as you can. Here are some tips on how you can garner more views on your YouTube videos.

Poll Your Audience To Find Out What They Want To Watch

Host a poll in one of your new videos and place a written copy of it in your recent video description to ask viewers what kind of content they would be interested in watching from you. Offering polls like this lets your viewers know that they are important to you and that you care about their thoughts on how you can improve your content for them.

For example, if you post casino content on your YouTube page, viewers may want to see more reviews of different casino and sports betting platforms like NetBet.
Give your honest opinion about the casino sites. Are their games of high quality? Do they have good deposit bonuses? Are there not many hoops to jump through to prove your identity in the initial sign-up process? These are all details that your viewers would want to know.

Make Your Thumbnails Stand Out

When you upload a YouTube video, it takes various images from throughout the video that can act as your thumbnail when viewers search for your videos. These thumbnails can sometimes not only be boring, but also not show the content of your video, which means potential viewers could pass by it in the list without giving it a second look.

You can either hire a freelance graphic designer or use a YouTube Thumbnail Maker to create catchy thumbnails yourself. Software like Adobe Photoshop can help you design engaging thumbnails easily. For example, you could use a picture of yourself striking a fun pose with the name of the video as text around you against a colored background. It could be a picture of yourself doing a fun pose with the name of the video as text around you in a colored background.
The more bright and vibrant colors that you use with high quality graphics, the more likely a viewer will click on your video to view it.

Connect With Other YouTubers

Start collaborating with other YouTubers in your niche. You can do videos with your collaborators on a specific subject to gain exposure from some of their subscribers. As you continue to deliver high-quality content and show that you are an expert in the niche, those subscribers from the YouTubers you collaborated with will eventually subscribe to your channel as well.

More subscribers means more views on your YouTube videos. As these new viewers start liking your content even more, they may eventually share it with their friends and family, which will turn into a
domino effect of receiving even more views on the videos.

Host a Contest

Have your viewers share your videos to family, friends, and social media and do a giveaway as a prize for a randomly selected person that enters into the contest.
Run the contest for about 3-4 weeks to get an optimal amount of entrants. As more people share your most recent video for the contest, the more individuals that will eventually enter your contest. You can offer extra entries for individuals that share your video to more than one social media platform like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.


There are many other ways that you can increase views on your YouTube videos such as optimizing them with popular hashtags that viewers may try to find videos on or even publishing the link to your blog that has a high amount of traffic. No matter how you do it, we wish you luck on garnering enough views for your videos as a YouTuber!
