How to Promote Your YouTube Video When You Have ZERO Subscribers

By | September 3, 2019


you want to create videos on YouTube but the problem is if you don’t have any ad budget and you don’t have a social following you’re probably not gonna have any subscribers if you have no subscribers who’s gonna watch your videos yes I could end up breaking down boring old simple YouTube marketing tips but you know what if you have no money you have no subscribers they’re gonna be hardening you’re not gonna get that grid of results hey everyone i’m neil patel and today i’m gonna share with you how to promote your youtube video even if you have zero subscribers so the first tip i have for you is take your youtube videos that you’ve created and promote them outside of youtube so here’s the first strategy that we do we go and we take our youtube videos we hit up all the bloggers who write articles similar to the concepts that we’re teaching in our youtube videos and we ask them to embed that video within their blog posts and when we asked them to embed that video within their blog posts what we found is it helps us get more views to our YouTube videos it sends more positive signals to YouTube and in general our rankings start performing better the second tip I have for you is YouTube is very competitive especially in the English language but outside of the English language it’s not that hard to get views so you want to make sure you translate your video and transcribe into different languages for example this video here is in English but my team uploads the video with subtitles in Portuguese on YouTube they do the same with Spanish in German and tons of other languages by doing that we’re not only getting views in English but we’re then getting views in all these other languages and as I mentioned even if you have no subscribers I don’t really have a ton of subscribers in a lot of regions that don’t speak English but yeah a lot of these regions are growing in my popularity when I look at my YouTube sets just because we’re translating all of our videos by subtitles to all these different countries the third tip I have for you is to leverage your existing audience so let’s say you have a website like I do I have an email list if I create a YouTube video that I know people will love all email blasts from my email list to that YouTube video it helps to get tons more views engagement and of course more subscribers on YouTube starts ranking higher I do the same with my push notification subscriber lists so for example I use subscribers comm to generate more push notification subscribers when I release a YouTube video that I know that you would like to watch I didn’t send out a push notification so I can get way more views YouTube’s looking at a lot of signals and a lot of them are external because if all these external signals show YouTube that hey people love this content it’s gonna perform better on YouTube as well and the last tip I have for you is if you have search traffic going to your website look at your most popular posts you can see these within your Google search console or Google Analytics look at the most popular pages see which videos you have that are the most relevant to that YouTube clip or video that you’ve created and bed that video into your blog post like I do at Neil Patel calm it’ll help your videos get consistent views in addition to that what you’ll find is it’ll also keep people on your website longer which will also help improve your rankings so it’s kind of a win-win not are you getting more YouTube views but people are staying on your site longer which helps improve your user metrics which improves your overall rankings in Google so that’s it follow those four tips and you’ll get way more traffic to your YouTube videos even if you don’t have one subscriber if you have questions on how you can use these tips or if you’re confused leave a comment below I’ll answer them I’ll help you out and of course if you enjoy the video like share comment and tell other people about it thank you for watching

    Hi Neil, I’m curious if other bloggers refused to embed your video because they saw you as competition. 🤔

    I tend to spend a fair bit of time in preparing my videos, but have found it so hard to get subscribers. 1000 subscribers & 4000 hrs of viewing time seem a distant away for me . Any more tips will be gratefully received. TIA.
