Getting attention

For YouTube promotion, you will first need to search for ways of engaging your audience. By engaging your audience, you cause them to pause and possibly enjoy the entire video.

Engage your audience

To make it much more stimulating, ask questions. This provides a way to get truthful comments about what you’re trying to convey in your videos. If you’re a gamer, interact with your audience about their opinions of the game, their suggestions on how to find codes and clues within the game, and inquire about other similar games that your audience may be interested in. There are all sorts of questions that you can ask which makes the audience feel needed and welcome.

Most people will return if they feel like their opinion is valued. Use shoutouts and even engage your audience in contest participation and reward systems during the video.
