===> Tip number 12.

Upload daily one video or one video in two days, in order to get more subscribers: 

Schedule your upload time. Scheduling your video upload time helps you to gain more and more subscribers. Subscribers has direct impact on views of your videos. You may have seen too YouTube channels has a large number of subscribers and whenever they upload a video those subscribers are been notified by YouTube and they view that video and the owner of that channel gets views on his YouTube video without doing anything.

The best schedule is to upload one video daily but it may be tough for tech related YouTube channel owners to upload one video daily. So they can upload a video after a gap of two days by doing this if anyone will watch one of your videos he will be having all your videos in next to watch list which means if one of your video gets a large number of views, rest of the videos will get views automatically.

===> Tip number 13

Encourage your viewers to subscribe your channel to increase your subscriber count. 

When you will make a video on anything, you should tell your viewers to subscribe your channel. You can do that by many ways like by adding your voice to your video in which you will encourage your viewers to subscribe our channel so that you will be notified when we will upload a new video on the next topic.

You can also encourage your viewers by adding text message of subscribe our channel to your video. If you are new in all this, you must be thinking why are subscribers so much important? I already said that in the tip no. 12 that is views are related to subscribers.

===> Tip number 14.

Promote your videos on social sites To get initial views on your YouTube videos. 

If you don’t have a large number of subscribers then It is very important to give a boost of views to your videos by sharing them on social sites like facebook, Twitter etc. If you don’t share your videos on social sites then you may not get your first view of your video for a long time. This happens because whenever any one tries to search a video on YouTube, he don’t want to watch a video which doesn’t have a single view. It is a common response of almost every viewer.

===> Tip number 15.

Make few videos on trending topics to get millions of views. 

If you are a new youtuber then you may not get views on your videos for a long time, in that case you can make a video on any trending topic and you will get a lot of views on your rest of the videos because of that trending video. To search what is trending, you use Google to search or you can use Twitter to see what’s trending?.

Trending topics change time by time but trending videos get millions of views in less than a day. Whenever anyone will watch your trending video he/she will be shown a message “more from this channel” if he/she clicks on it he will watch your rest of the videos and by making a video on any trending topic, you will get more subscribers.

Moreover you can download any trending video and can upload that but you shouldn’t monetize that. If you will monetize that you will be banned by YouTube for a month and remember after downloading that video, you should first upload that video by any other channel, so that if the owner of that video will file an appeal or not? In his way you will be able to know whether your channel will have to face any panelty or not by uploading that video. For that you should be aware about basic YouTube penalties.

===> Tip number 16:

Allow other videos to be shown with your videos to get some views. 

By allowing other videos to be shown with your videos, your videos will also be shown with other YouTube videos. Let us say “A” has a tech related channel and he has a video on recover your data and “B” also has a YouTube channel on technology and he has a video on recover deleted data. If these two allow other videos to be shown with their videos then if somebody is watching recover deleted data video of ‘B’ then ‘A’s recover deleted data video will be shown with B’s video and vice versa.

===> Tip number 17.

Make a playlist of your videos. 

By making a playlist if anyone will click on that playlist he/she can watch all of your videos without having options of watching others youtubers videos of related video to that which he was watching and you should try to make a playlist of related videos like if you have 3-4 videos of recover deleted data without pc or of reliance jio 4G then you should make a playlist of these three videos so that if anyone is searching for that particular topic, he/she can click on that playlist and can watch those 3-4 videos but if those 3-4 videos are not of the same topic he/she will not watch that or will not find your playlist good.

Extra tips

you can also add one YouTube video of any other youtuber to your playlist which is very hit or has many views. By this way he is getting many views, you can also get some views. Before doing all this you should be aware about the basic requirements of YouTube and adsense and video monetization in youtube.
