Grow On Youtube
The best way to grow on YouTube is Instagram.
Sounds weird ? You are confused ? Good. That’s always a good thing.
If you watched my video” Instagram vs YouTube growth”, you will find out that Instagram algorithm is more favorite to the new creators than the YouTube algorithm. You can rely to that if you start a YouTube channel and you get 10-15 views on your perfectly edited videos, carefully picked titles, good thumb nails, SEO the video even rank very high and you get a low amount of views because YouTube algorithm wants to see your consistency day in and day out. If you upload regularly depending on your competitors and their upload schedule and so on.
It’s almost to see similar things but way easier to rank on hash tags as a new Instagram account. In fact my agency does that at DrNiki.co and we have a growth plan that includes ranking you on hash tags every single time you post.
So if Instagram’s the best way right now to grow a YouTube channel. And reason I am making this video is that I have a client that I am working with on Instagram and she has over a 130 000 followers on Instagram. We created a YouTube channel for her and she got over 50 000 views per video from the beginning straight up. Twenty percent of the traffic was from Instagram and because of YouTube getting so much traffic from another platform that it’s really famous because Google wants to get people off Instagram onto YouTube do it’s really famous people going from Instagram to YouTube. This is an algorithm, very good social signal, and what happened was 80% of the rest of her traffic was actually browse features which is YouTube recommending content on the first page , home page, watch page, and also suggest videos, the videos that you see on the right, it’s insane.
So building that audience on Instagram and then driving it to YouTube has a lot of YouTube algorithm benefits.
So if growing Instagram audience if very important, question is how do you grow an Instagram audience? I will tell you a few tips. I have a video that explains why follow-unfollow isnt’s very viable right now due to the recent Instagram updates.
Actually a good alternative right now is story viewing and it’s a good method to get from 2-3 000 followers after which you have a better chance to rank on the explore page and have a really significant boost in eyeballs on your content or impressions and reach on Instagram.
So what happens when you rank on the explore page with viral content happening in your life ? People get to know you from your Instagram account, so that puts them in funnel. Instagram is like your funnel to your YouTube content. People get to know you and know if you being with me for a while you know that I say that people’s attention is from 8 to 9 seconds at least some studies show that, so it’s hard to get someone to watch longer than that. Most people spent few seconds before they make a decision to watch or close the content they are potentially going to consume.
So if the attention span of people is though you want to capture that and it’s way easier to capture the attention span of people on Instagram. Because there is a funnel they watch all the videos and you can have a link in your bio for your YouTube channel so you want to let people know what you are all about in your Instagram photos, so they understand you, they get to know few things about you, so they want to know more. Getting curious, capture their attention and then put them in the funnel to go into your YouTube channel, which again triggers the YouTube algorithm because it’s getting traffic from Instagram. Then it can capture this traffic and people are spending more money on YouTube, they’ll be serpent as they’ll make more money and you take potentially those people from Instagram because they will start consuming more content on YouTube by subscribing and so.
So make sure you beat this algorithm by subscribing to this channel with hitting the notification bell and make sure you like this video.
In conclusion people want to know if they can know more about you within a few seconds, weather you matter to them, and this is the truth here, people don’t care about you, they will decide whether they care about you a little bit within the first few seconds noticing your content.
Thank you for watching!
