How To Promote Your Music on YouTube Effectively

, , 9 Comments

Update: The 2nd method below the 1st one is outdated, but I kept it online for educational purposes. The first one that you’re going to read right below is working flawlessly. Enjoy!


Method1 (Working Flawlessly)

In this method we’re going to talk about driving traffic / views to your YouTube videos.

Have you been one of those guys who upload a video then end up doing nothing other than logging in and hoping to get views or get viral out of nowhere? I’ve been there, I feel how it’s like to know you’ve uploaded some great content only to be the only one enjoying it. It sucks.

So this method is really simple. What we need to do is to rank our youtube video in the first page of youtube or google (or even in the 1st position of the 1st page) for the keyword we’d like to rank.

So if for example you want to be 1st for the keyword “hip hop 2017” or anything else you can imagine such as “makeup tips” or “how to play football tips” (works for everything it doesn’t need to be a music channel) you just need to let youtube rank it first for you. How’s it done?

Really simple. The more blog posts linking to your youtube video the better the ranking your video will have. Why? Because youtube thinks your video is more important than other videos. The more people / webmasters linking to you, the better your rankings. I told you it’s simple.

Now, where can we get those blog posts?

A blog post usually costs $10 to $20, but I’ve found some guys which can build these for you for less than $3 per *permanent* post if you get them in bulk (to tell you the truth I always get them in bulk because 1 post won’t really make a difference so these guys are really making me a nice amount of money from youtube ads, since I order from them once and get all the traffic passively after that forever).

I wouldn’t want to leave their link here in public, cause we might overload them with work and they’ll increase the prices back to the normal ones, so send me a message on my facebook page and I’ll make sure to reply as soon as possible (I always reply to your questions).

This way, if someone is too bored to ask for the private link means that he’s not taking his youtube channel seriously which makes more room for the rest of us who do 😉

Method 2 (For Educational Purposes)

how to promote your music on youtubeHow To Get Real & Targeted YouTube Views and Subscribers – On Autopilot

“This guide is not about buying fake views or any other kind of similar actions”

Introduction

In this guide, I am going to show you how to get Real YouTube Views & Subscribers to your videos and promote your youtube channel – on autopilot.

This guide is NOT about buying fake views and subs. We’re talking about 100% Real people that will:

  • Comment on your videos
  • Subscribe to your channel
  • May watch your ads – if you’ve enabled them
  • Keyword Targeted – they will be interested in your subject, no matter what.
  • Active Youtubers – We’ll engage people that have commented on videos similar to yours and are proven to be a) interested in your content b) active youtubers – because they’re active in the comment section.
  • You won’t even have to open your computer for this to work. It’s just a set and forget method.

This is 100% Adsense Safe. Even if you are a certitied youtuber, this is going to work. You don’t need to be a tech-savvy person in order to make this work.

What we’re going to do is as easy as turning on our computer.

I highly recommend you follow the steps with me. I’ve also added images to make it even easier for you to follow along.

I know you’re here to make your channel noticeable so… Let’s get started, shall we?

Pro Tip: At the end of this guide you can find proof that this is working for my personal channel. I even log in to prove that’s it’s actually mine. Let’s continue 🙂

1. Target Your Audience

how to promote your music on youtube 1

For this example, I pretend to be a hip hop producer that wants to promote his hip hop track. I want to target people that search on youtube: best hip hop songs

You can use any kind of keyword, depending on your situation. If you want to promote your channel with make up tutorials then do this:

Type make up tutorials and do not hit Enter.

You’ll see youtube giving you some keywords that most people search.

Choose 5 of them – choose the ones that you think will work best. It’s really easy, all you have to do is to think like a visitor/customer that are looking for your videos.

Take me as an example…

I typed best hip hop songs and I chose these 5 keywords:

  1. best hip songs 2014
  2. best hip hop songs
  3. best hip hop songs 2015 – this is missing from the list but I am sure it will get more views since we are on 2015 now 😉
  4. best hip hop 2015
  5. best hip hop 2014

These are some keywords that my audience is searching.

These are ultra-targeted keywords, meaning that people are actually looking for my video and I will just simply give them what they’re looking for.

2. Create A Free Account

TubeAssist is the system we’re going to use that is accepted by youtube and is used by thousands of certified YouTubers.

Plus, it was built from the ground up following YouTube’s TOS and runs using their public programming API.

You can’t get safer than this.

3. Connect Your YouTube Account(s)

how-to-promote-your-music-on-youtube-3

In order to connect your account, all you have to do is to click Add -> I have the Channel login & password, as shown in the image above.

I’ve connected 3 youtube accounts of mine, but I greyed them out for obvious reasons 🙂

When you click the “I have the Channel login & password” button, youtube will ask your permission to add your account to TubeAssist.

This is proof that YouTube recognizes tubeassist and the fact that they can work together shows the legitimacy of this system.

For this step to be completed, just click accept/allow everything YouTube is asking for, so the communication between them can start flawlessly.

4.  Set Up Your Campaigns

Click Add Campaign as shown in the image above.

There are 4 campaigns. Each account can use all of them at once (optional).

For now, we’re going to use the most used one and my personal favorite. Share Video or Playlist is my absolute favorite.

I am going to guide you how to set up this one and the other ones work the same with some minor differences, that I’ll also explain in a moment.

So click Share Video or Playlist and you’ll get this image:

Remember the keywords we got before?

Now it’s time to copy-paste them in the fields. Yes, it’s that easy. Let’s move on!

Now, all we have to do is to select our video from the My Video field – since your account is connected the videos will be waiting for you to select them.

Alternatively, you can copy-paste the URL of your video, but I believe the 1st option is easier.

4.b. Messages

Now it’s time to add our Message.

I use a formula that works pretty much for every video/keyword and it’s proven to make people click and watch your video (that’s what we want right?) and I’m going to share the formula with you, right now.

The Message:

Hey, I see you’re interested in <your subject> and I’d be excited if you could check out mine – I put lots of hard work to it! You can check it out here:

The Message with my Hip Hop Example:

Hey, I see you’re interested in hip hop songs and I’d be excited if you could check out mine – I put lots of hard work to it! You can check it out here:

You can easily change this, it does not have to be the exact same message but please pay attention to some critical points:

  • It’s not boring and gets to the point
  • It’s got a CTA (Call To Action) sentence in the end.

Words like “check it out here” , “watch my video here” , “Comment here” are call-to-action sentences and they improve clicks dramatically.

A fantastic trick to add to the message:

You can also make TubeAssist post a different message, plus keeping the meaning the same.

How can you do that?

It’s really easy… You just tell it to use a different synonym randomly. This will generate lots of sentences.

For example, we can tell it to post:

Hey OR Hi OR Hello there OR What’s up…

If we replace OR with this symbol | (which still means or) we get something like this:

Hey | Hi | Hello there | What’s up

Now let’s use brackets to close the sentence.

{ Hey | Hi | Hello there | What’s up }

Now tubeassist knows that each time it will need to post a message, it will generate randomly a new sentence.

Pretty cool, isn’t it?

But don’t worry, you don’t have to add all these synonyms by yourself. I’ve done all the hard work for you.

Just copy – paste the text below 🙂

Here’s the full and final message including the synonyms:

{Hey|Hi|Hello there|What’s up|Hello}, I {see|can see} you’re {interested in|serious about|enthusiastic about|excited by|intrigued by|excited about} hip hop songs, and {I’d|I would|i will} be {thrilled|happy|excited} if {you could|you may|you may choose to|you could possibly|you are able to|you could actually|you might} check out mine – I put lots of {hard work|time and effort|dedication|time and energy} to it! You can check it out here:

Just replace hip hop songs and add your own subject/keywords and copy-paste it in the Message field. Feel free to change the message a bit If you feel you’ll get more clicks/views to your video, but don’t forget to use a Call-To-Action word.

Always be gentle and kind, but to the point.

Click Save Changes and go for a walk, watch a movie or anything you’d love to do.

5. Explaining The Differences Of Each Campaign

how to promote your music on youtube 8

  • Share Video or Playlist: My absolute favorite and a must. Connects with your targeted viewers direct
  • Comment on Videos: This is just like the share video or playlist campaign, but it comments in public. This can bring lots of extra targeted people to your video and works even greater with the tip I showed you above. You can set this up the same way you do with the Share Video or Playlist campaign.
  • Subscribe to Channels: People subscribe back when you subscribe to them, thus you get more views and attention. You can set this up and if someone won’t subscribe back in 2 weeks, tubeassist automatically removes them! You can also make it remove them even if they do subscribe back, but I consider this a bad move, so I always select to stay subscribed if they do to.
  • Send Message: This is a brand new feature that I don’t normally use. It’s like the Share Video or Playlist campaign but it gives you 60 more posts per day, but the only drawback is that you need to have your computer on , while the others are 100% on the cloud.

Did I mention anything about the internal anti-spam system?

Well, when you send something to someone it gets added to a “do not bother” list, so he won’t be contacted again plus each campaign allows ~360 connections per day.

It will not surpass this 360 to 450 per day limit, because it’s built that way to comply with youtube’s TOS. Absolutely amazing.

Proof

I am a person that loves to show proof, so I am going to show you that this is working.

You know, my main love is to make people aware of stuff that will improve their life, but this isn’t my one and only love.

I am a also a music producer, rock/metal and epic-cinematic music fan (you know the kind of music we hear on trailers) and I thought…

“Since I know my job so well, why don’t I use youtube to make some extra money by helping others for free? I’d love to help others for free! But I ‘ve got one problem though… I’ve got no marketing knowledge and I’ll have no views and even if I had the knowledge to do so… I have no time ‘cause I can’t stop composing music – I need to find something that’s effective and does everything on autopilot”.

And then I’ve found this perfect solution, so I could reach you guys and let you know about my free lessons.

I set up my campaigns and these are some of the comments I’ve got from people:

how to promote your music on youtube 9

how to promote your music on youtube 10

 

how to promote your music on youtube 11

 

how to promote your music on youtube 12

As you can see these are some comments of people that have been connected directly with me without me doing no promotion at all, but rather spending my time creating free lessons for you, while other people are trying to rank for keywords.

Ranking for keywords takes weeks or even months.

I am not saying that ranking for keywords is a bad thing, actually I find it to be a good thing but… We are always trying to rank while we forget the most important stuff. Connect with others!

We ‘re humans, we have languages, we have minds, we can communicate.

We tend to over-complicate things for no reason, while the solution is right in front of our eyes.

Talking about ranking…

People are spending tons of money to rank for keywords. I know it seems crazy but they do.

The competition out there is huge and people are acting like wolves stalking their prey (keywords) so they can get the best possible traffic.

They’re trying to “trick” the youtube ranking algorithm by sending fake views, favorites and likes.

So that youtube thinks that a video is more popular than another, since it’s getting views, thus place it higher in the search results.

I was always against that, ranking is tempting, but I find this unfair for others.

Not only that, but what if my “ranking procedure“ failed miserably and all of my money went straight to trash?

Or even worse… What if youtube finds out that I am trying to trick the algorithm and ban my video? These are the most used reasons I will never buy fake views and better stick to websites like TubeAssist that’s officially approved by youtube. Better stay safe!

But you know what? I got ranked on 1st Page!

Since I engaged my viewers directly and saw real views coming on my video, I outranked the other videos with their fake views.

You know why?

‘Cause of my real comments!

Youtube was fed up with all of these videos with fake views and no comments and changed their ranking algorithm – (I saw some improvement in my videos and googled about it).

Now it does not matter if you’ve got THOUSANDS of views – it doesn’t matter!

Youtube now ranks your videos according to your video activity. Real comments now beat thousands of fake views!

Well done youtube!

And for the above reason, I ranked for a keyword that I would be thrilled to be on page 1. Check this out:

Update: This picture below is old, now I’m not 4th in position on 1st page, but I’m 2nd in position on 1st page!

how to promote your music on youtube 14

I rank 4th (old now ranking 2nd).

Not bad for 0 work from me, since tubeassist does all the work for me on autopilot!

Mission Complete: Now I can spend all my time mixing, composing and creating free tutorials for you and I’ve got something really cool that notifies you about my free lessons.

And there you have it.

My whole marketing strategy in a step-by-step Guide.

Let’s sum up…

To Sum Up – We’re Talking About:

  • 100% Real Views & Subscribers – Not real-looking ones but real. You’re going to receive real comments too.
  • Keyword Targeted Viewers – If you’re targeting people that are searching, for example, “best new pop songs” you can do thi It works for any keyword of your liking, of course.
  • Doesn’t Use Up Any Resources On Your Computer – Shut down your pc (or mac). It will still work for you 24/7.
  • Markets Your YouTube Channels While You Sleep – Spend your time on better things rather than spending it on youtube marketing… (family, vacation, movies, beer with friends, etc).
  • 100% Safe – This is used by thousands of certified YouTubers and was built from the ground up following YouTube’s TOS and runs using their public programming API. Can’t get safer than this.

Now that you know what we’re talking about, you can:

      So what you’re asking is something that will work for you 24/7 for free?

      I mean, don’t get me wrong, but these guys have created something that is working for you non-stop and if you want to respect their programming time, also including their server fees (’cause this is working on the cloud using their computers and internet, not yours) then I am sure $19 is a steal compared to what you’re getting.

      You will possibly need more than $19 per day and not per month if you would hire someone to do all these manually 😀

      Plan does not start at $19, you’ve got full features for $19.
      One account is completely fine, unless you’ve got 10 youtube accounts but who has time creating videos for 10 channels?

      Sorry if I sound weird, but I don’t like it when people ask other peoples sweat for free.

      Anyone who is serious about their channel would go and invest those 14.70 dollars.

      I’ve been using this for 2 years and got from the company a coupon that cuts 25%OFF so if you still feel that $19 is much, then I hope this will help you.

      Coupon: tube25off

      I would easily invest more than $14 to this, this is my marketing solution and I really don’t do anything.

      I have all the time to create tutorials and enjoy your conversations.

      If you’re serious about your channel, go for it, you won’t regret it

      You can thank me later 😀

      Cheers
