Oh No! I’m going to lose monetization on my channel!
How am I going to make money from my videos? YouTube sucks! These are a few of the outcries from creators whose channels have lost the monetization ability.
Sequel to my last post on How to get 1000 Subscribers in 2018, I will be sharing with you 7 ways to get 4000 hours of watch time on YouTube.
If there is a trending topic in your niche, jump on it right away and discuss it in the video. Use a website like Google Trends, to search for trending topics in your niche.
The beauty of going live is that people spend more time on your live videos than your regular videos because there is a lot of interaction going on during your live stream. It is a great way to accumulate watch time quickly.
Collaboration is a great way to expose your contents to a different audience. As you do more collaborations, you’ll expand your audience, attract more subscribers and generate more watch time hours.
- Increase Upload Frequency
The more you frequently upload new videos, the more watch time and subscribers you will attract. For example, if you upload just once a week, you won’t accumulate more watch time hours nor subscribers.
- Increase Audience Retention
Audience Retention refers to the number of times users remain engaged with your video(s). The longer they stay watching your video, the more watch time you accumulate. If your average audience retention is below 50%, work on improving it. To increase audience retention, ensure that you grab your viewers’ attention in the first 10 seconds by either asking a question or stating clearly what your video is about.
The beauty of playlists is that they contain a series of videos so that people can binge-watch your videos. When a person watches multiples videos in succession, it greatly improves your watch time hours. Ensure you link to your playlists in your end-screen and cards as well as your description and top of your comments.|
- Adwords for Video Campaign
Create ads for your most engaging videos to accumulate watch time hour. Once you run a successful ad, you are not far from achieving the 4000 hours watch time hours.
