YouTube is one of the best ways to promote something like your music, products, services, etc.. It is the #2 search engine after Google. Since this site is all about music, I’m sure you’re all looking to promote your music and YouTube is a great way to get your music out there. So here are a few ways on how to promote youtube videos.
Make your title filled with keywords. This includes your name, song name at the least. Then you would use related keywords such as “new electro song 2013.” Just don’t make is sound spammy.
Again, you want to use keywords here. Don’t stuff it with keywords though as it will look spammy. Write an actual description but make sure it includes your keyword.
In your description, add links. All of them. If you have a site, blog, soundcloud, fan page, twitter etc.. include all of them in your description.Even if you have other YouTube channels, be sure to add them. Also add “http” or “https” so the links are clickable.
Don’t stuff them. Be smart. Use long tail keywords to get a better rankings on YouTube. Have atleast 3 or more words per keyword such as “how to play the guitar.” Your visits will be more targeted compared to if you stuff your tags with “guitar” or lay guitar” etc..
People can watch your videos directly on Pinterest. Take advantage of this.
If you have multiple channels, use those to like. Having atleast 1 like will help attract people to stay on your video. Also say in the description to like the video. A call to action is important.
This is one of the big ways on how to promote YouTube videos. When you share your video on Facebook, other people can potentially share it and that starts a snowball effect assuming that your video is actually good. A lot of YouTube videos have gone viral because of Facebook. Yours can potentially do the same too.
Link your videos on twitter.
Also use hash tags. Make sure they’re relevant.

Video responses are one of the best ways on how to promote YouTube videos. You stand out more if you do video responses rather than just commenting. You’ll even get a whole new audience when you do this.
