YouTube is doing really well as a marketing method at the moment and there are a number of reasons for this:
- It is relatively easy to get YouTube videos ranked on search engines and therefore to get free views and subscribers on YouTube.
- Video is an extremely effective sales method – people buy from people!
- There are now more daily searches on YouTube than there are on Google.
- YouTube is the current way that people search for information and solutions for their problems. So it follows that YouTube is an excellent platform on which to promote your offer, service or personal brand.
So here we go with the 12 specific ways to get free views and subscribers on YouTube:
1. Use highly targeted keywords in your title
SEO methods are very effective on YouTube videos, so ensure that you use very targeted keywords in your title. This will greatly increase your chances of getting your video ranked in the search engines.
You can use the Google Adwords free tool to find search volumes and key words. This can be a good place to start.
However, I use LongtailPro to identify the best longtail keywords which other marketers may not be aware of (therefore getting an advantage over the competition). It also tells me which keywords I am most likely to be able to rank and gives me instant information on how likely my own website is to rank for suggested keywords.
In turn I make a lot of money on YouTube because I am able to get a good volume of very highly targeted FREE traffic to my YouTube channel. Click here to start your 7 day Free Trial.

3. Create good quality videos
It is good to have good sound quality and lighting on your videos. This helps to get you free views, because if viewers see one of your videos that are nicely put together, this builds credibility and they are more likely to watch the other videos on your channel and also to subscribe to it.
If you don’t want to appear in videos or if you don’t have the equipment to ensure good sound etc, you can get great quality videos made for just $5 onFiverr.com. Just be sure to be very clear what you want the actor to say etc, consider providing them with a script or skilled actors will ad lib very well.
4. Give away a lot of value
This is essential in any internet marketing niche. You want to give a lot of information and value to your viewers so that they come to like and trust you. Then when you promote a product or service, it will be like they are buying from a trusted friend.
This is the absolute golden rule in my opinion: only ever promote products that you have tested and which are good value and work well. Remember your reputation is at stake and you will lose custom and credibility if you promote shoddy products.
5. Include a transcription in the description box
Type out the content of your video and include it in the description box. This helps with SEO which in turn helps to get you views.
Many internet marketers also recommend including a translation in Spanish due to the number of Spanish speakers globally who may be searching for the information you are offering. Personally I have never done this, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good idea and something to bear in mind. This is another task that you can quickly have done for you on Fiverr.com.
6. Remember to ask People to Like, Share and Subscribe
Sounds obvious, but you would be surprised how many people forget to do this!
It is the natural inclination of people to do as they are asked, so ask, and people will share and subscribe so that you will get lots of free views to your channel.
7. Add the titles of high traffic videos word for word, in the tags of your own videos
This is a little known but very effective tip that is used by millionaire internet marketers to get thumbnails of their their videos along the right hand side of high traffic videos in the same niche.
Essentially it enables you to piggy back off the traffic that has gone to other more highly ranked videos in your niche area – for free!
8. Create a playlist
You can create a playlist so one video on your channel will play after another to increase the views. This will help to get your video ranked, and the display of a higher number of views will encourage yet more viewers.
9. Create a circular traffic flow
Embed your YouTube videos in to your blog so readers will be diverted to your videos for free. This is another way to increase views which in turn encourages more viewers. Also create links in the description under your video to your website so that you create a circular traffic flow.
10. Send targeted free traffic
Look around on forums and online communities that are connected to your niche area. Create videos which answer a question or offer a solution and helpfully send traffic to your video for the answers.
This is an incredibly effective marketing method and even better it is a good way to get FREE views on your YouTube channel.
11. Interview a high profile marketer in your niche
Internet marketers are usually willing to give interviews as it helps to boost their profile and visibility. It will also benefit you because the marketer is likely to share a copy of the video on their website or channel and credit you and your channel. Because they are well known use of their name is also likely to help your video to show in the search engines.
12. Social bookmark your YouTube channel
Social bookmarking is really important to help get your videos ranked. You can of course do this yourself for free.
Alternatively, if you don’t know how or don’t want to spend time doing it, then there are plenty of people willing to do this for you for just $5 on Fiverr.com.
10. Make constructive comments on other videos in the niche
Visit other videos in your niche area which have a high number of views and make constructive comments. Be very helpful, add value. Say things which make it clear that you have actually watched the video and don’t be spammy.
If you are helpful, people will want to know more about you and will have a look at your channel. This is another surprisingly effective method to get free views and subscribers on YouTube.
