The number one question that I get from viewers is “How Do I Grow My YouTube Channel” the right way? Growing your YouTube channel can realistically be accomplished through knowing the ‘how’ of what can make your YouTube channels expand. There are some great case studies of people who have made this work for them, but here are two techniques that are often forgotten.
One important thing that has been done to grow large audiences and become successful is to use your analytics. This is a great way to find out information that helps you to re-invest into your channel. Believe it or not, charts can help you measure the success of each video that you upload. If you want to know about trends and what is happening with the video content you are offering, this is how you find ways to optimize or fine-tune your content. Besides seeing your ratings, comments, and engagement trends, analytics tells you everything that you need to know about your channel. If people like your brand, it’s right there in the analytics. When something is not selling like hotcakes, it’s all in the analytics to tell you where you need to make changes. Using your analytics is one of the basics that are often forgotten. Don’t waste your time wondering if your YouTube channel is going to be successful. Dive right in there and find out what exactly is going on with your analytics.

Another important part of building your brand on YouTube is using collaborations. Teaming up with others in your same genre is again another one of the best ways there is to explode your channel and get the attention you are looking for. The collaboration process is critical. This is something that has to be well thought out. But using this as a building block for your channel is one way to play off of getting exposure and more views… but it has to be done with a specific strategy. Knowing what you want to get out of it is where this will pay off in the end. Some of the basics of this collaboration process are to:
- Identify the Purpose
- Benefits both Parties
- Plan your Videos
- Schedule the Collaboration
- Properly Promote your Video
- Show Appreciation
Again, these are just two of the important basics to build a huge audience and grow your YouTube channel. So by considering these in your next YouTube video, you will see a huge payoff just by implementing them in your next go-around.
Remember to personalize your video and create a formula that resonates with your target audience. Get out there and connect with your viewers. And frequently check on your strategy by making certain that you have a roadmap to get the growth you are looking to attain.
