How VidIQ helps you get more views?
Have you ever watched videos with millions of views and wondered how popular they are? There are several possibilities:
If you spend enough money, you can always get traffic. You can promote your videos using YouTube ads (part of Google AdWords) or other advertising platforms. However, for 99% of people, this is a disadvantageous option due to the high cost.
Send your current audience to your channel.
A public figure with a large following (be it a TV show, movie, sports, or business) can open up a YouTube channel tomorrow and start getting many views.
As soon as he is mentioned on any platform, he already has. A big brand is also in this position. Most people don’t have that luxury.
Some YouTube users have worked hard for many years to create a successful channel. They may have used a combination of advertising, email marketing, or video SEO.
SEO is your best strategy if you are a “regular” person (i.e., not very famous or influential) or represent a small/medium business on a tight budget. The problem is that it can take a lot of time and effort to do it manually.
There is also a very steep learning curve and the need to keep up with the latest Google / YouTube algorithms. VidIQ is short, a way to quickly improve your videos to achieve more organic reach in less time and without the need for SEO or technical knowledge.
All right then, you should know the drill by now. From any YouTube desktop page, click your profile image at the top right-hand corner of the screen and go to the YouTube Studio,and on this dashboard screen, you should find exactly what you’re looking for via the subscriber’s panel.
So click the see all link to jump into the dedicated popup subscriber screen. It’s already sorted by the most subscribed channels who are subscribers to you over the last 90 days, but what you can do is click the time period box and change it to lifetime and voila, these are literally your biggest YouTube fans.
But not necessarily your most important ones. Alternatively, if you wanted to see your oldest public subscriber to the channel, you can click on the date subscribed column.
We actually did this in a previous tutorial and took the time to say thank you to that channel for being our longest serving subscriber.
When it comes to communication,I am not necessarily saying that you go up to these super huge channels and request collaborations.
That’s probably going to seem a little bit spammy, and the chances are those channels aren’t going to see your messages since they get so many, but the fact that larger channels are subscribing to your channel does suggest the perceived value that you have in your content.
So one of the things you could do is add these channels to the VidIQ competitor tool where you can keep a tab on what they’re doing if you don’t normally subscribe to those channels.
Then at if any point in the future, your content aligns with that channel, you could join the conversation in that video or add your own thoughts in your own video and you may get a little bit of attention from it.
A few extra points of interest in the subscriber panel, you can of course subscribe back to any of these channels directly from this page.
Each of the channels listed here are clickable, so you can jump straight to their home page, and you can increase the number of channels that are seen per page and navigate through the list here at the bottom.
Now, when I talk about these tools, I always like to offer youtube some upgrades, and here are a couple I’d like to see in the future.
I would like to know how many subscribers have both subscribed to my channel and the channel that is subscribed tome, as that may reflect some really interesting audience cross over, and also just because I’m a little nerdy about these things, I would like to know the total number of subscribers from all of the channels that are subscribed to me.
I know it would probably be a huge, whopping, great number that doesn’t mean anything, but I just love that type of stuff, and of course if you’ve got any suggested improvements, I’d love to see the min the comments below.
Until YouTube make those improvements, VidIQ has a little something that might be of help. Click the IQ button in your extension shelf and go to subscriber insights.
This tool takes a samplesize of your subscribers and shows you who they are subscribing to, what videos they are engaging with, and when they are most active on YouTube.
The ultimate goal of allof this information is to help you, the video creator,get a better understanding of your target audience.
Who are they? What do they watch? And when do they watch it on YouTube? And let’s be honest, whodoesn’t like a little bit of a vanity boost?
Someone who has a bigger channel than yours subscribing to you. That does feel good, doesn’t it?
