Selling on YouTube majorly involves getting traffic and also attracting people to like and view your content. Even if your content is so good, but it is not attracting traffic, that literally means you won’t get views and likes, yet it is the basis of selling on YouTube. Numbers sell. To sell on YouTube, you need to have excellent, compelling videos that are attractive; however, you must find ways of driving traffic to your channel so that those videos are watched and liked in huge numbers.
Selling on YouTube and getting so many views doesn’t require you to do a lot but rather to keep ahead/ on top of the algorithm, and you have to be aware of any latest changes in regards to the algorithm or any other updates.
Let us take a quick look at how you can drive traffic to your YouTube channel to get more views, likes which automatically translate into sales.
1. Make sure you include links to your channel in your captions/description and the comments section.
Adding links into your description of the video or any other content is one of the most effective ways of getting more traffic and more views. This is because most people read the small content of the description and then click on the link to watch the video and pick the rest of the content from it without any further reading. Most people don’t want to read; therefore, if you include your link at the bottom of your description, that means that most people are likely to ignore your video, especially if the description is long and way beyond three lines because anything beyond that a viewer will be required to click on that option of “read more” of which most people don’t usually do but rather skip the video even if it has good content. Therefore, the good thing is to include your link to the video in the first three lines of your description so that those who don’t want to read more can click on the link and watch the video directly from your channel.
Why is it advisable to include links in your description?
· This is because links act as a further reference to information for those (viewers) who want to find out more about the video
· Links usually look cleaner with a different color, meaning that the viewer from an entire text can easily identify them
In addition to writing your links in the description, you can as well include the links in the comment section so that those who missed it in the description can be able to find it in the comments section; you can choose to pin your comment with the link at the top so that it is given the priority of being seen first by every other viewer.
2. Include a link of your video to your YouTube Profile
This is another way of getting traffic as well when you add a link of a video to your profile, the chances are high that anyone who visits your channel will be the first thing they see and thus may be attracted to click on the link, and of course, it will automatically lead them to your video. Thus it will be getting more views and traffic.
Additionally, most viewers and subscribers usually visit your profile if they are looking for any new information; therefore, having your link displayed on your profile would be a privilege to follow the link to watch whatever they want without scrolling through the entire content. Good enough, YouTube allows any user or any person with a channel/account to add to their profiles about 5 links; you can use this as an opportunity to market your new videos, products or services to get more views and sales, respectively.
In case you don’t have any new videos, you can add links to your other social media pages so that those who may not afford to watch your content through YouTube can follow what you on your other social media pages, thus earning you more traffic, likes, comments and more subscriptions.
