Video marketing is becoming very popular among entrepreneurs. More people are using mobile devices and the videos are easier to view on these devices than reading a long blog post.

Although there’s a lot of competition on YouTube, you can still increase the number of followers that you’ve got on YouTube.

With more followers, your videos are more likely to get noticed. Here are several steps that you can take right now to begin growing your YouTube following.

Increase the Value of Your Videos

The first step is to increase the value of your videos. If you don’t do this, people will not share videos that don’t provide any real value.

Each video needs to have a specific theme. It’s much like writing a quality blog post. In fact, you can recycle your most popular blog content into videos.

Whenever you write a script for a video, always ask yourself if you’d share this video with others. The video needs to offer some benefit to the viewer. You can provide instructions, demonstrations, or tips related to a specific topic.

Remain Consistent with Your Release Schedule

YouTube offers video recommendations based on what you’ve already watched. The more consistent you are, the more likely you will gain new subscribers.

If a viewer watches one of your videos without following, YouTube may recommend another your new videos as they’re released. This helps bring viewers back to your channel.

Whether you release one or four new videos each month, make sure you stick to a schedule. Decide which day of the week you’ll release your videos. Subscribers will know when to check back and your viewer retention rates will increase.

Ask People to Subscribe to Your Channel

Your videos should serve a specific purpose. As with your blog articles, the end of the video should include a call to action. You could tell viewers to follow a link or you can use this call to action to remind viewers to subscribe.

YouTube also provides the option to include an image or graphic to act as a clickable button overlay directly on top of your video. With this clickable button, you can include a link to subscribe to your YouTube channel.

Include a YouTube Widget on Your Website

You should also add a widget or link on your website that connects with your YouTube channel. Increase exposure to your channel by adding these features to your blog or business site.

If you use WordPress, you can find numerous widgets and plugins that allow you to add YouTube videos to your site. You could also add a YouTube subscribe button on your site.

Become a Featured YouTube Channel

You have the option to add “Featured Channels” to your YouTube channel. These are channels that you follow and recommend your followers to follow.

By getting these other channels to recommend you to their followers, you can boost exposure.

There are two ways to do this. You can either directly ask a channel to add you or you can start following them. There is no guarantee that the other channel will follow you, but it’s still worth the effort.

Interact with People That Comment on Your Videos

Make sure you don’t ignore the comments on your videos. Actively respond to these comments. People may leave a comment without following. After responding, they might rethink their decision and start following your channel. Once they subscribe, this gives you a chance to form a relationship with them.

In conclusion, increasing your YouTube following is one method for improving your online presence.
