- Join a group on Youtube and post your video on that group will also help you to get extra visitors to watch your video.
- Insert a link of your video in Facebook and Twitter to invite your friends and followers to watch your video on youtube is another way to drive traffic to your online video.
- Create an exciting thumbnail for your video to attract audiences is a must if you want more viewers to watch your video online.
- The video length is another factor which you need to consider before you make your video. The standard video length should be around three minutes because not many viewers are willing to watch the video which is longer than three minutes.
- The best time to upload your video will be around 11.00am on Wednesday and Thursday. I always get lots of viewers to watch my video on these two days. Don’t upload your video during the weekend because nobody will be there to watch it.
