How do you get people to share your videos that you have posted on Youtube without being pushy? Do you mention it in your videos or keep quiet about it?

I don’t know about others, but for me I never mention sharing, I just encourage likes and subs, as well as watching my content, but if a video does get shared then what a bonus.

Normally i just ask people to "share my video with your friends and family if you felt this was helpful or want to raise awareness!" Raises the share rate by around 10%
It boost the sharing by a lot, also adding cards i find or having it pinned in the description or comments helps. Usually you want to explain to your viewers why with a dramatic cause often. Share this video for a purpose other then yourself type stuff, you know what i mean? 'If you found this video helpful of making brownies, please share if you want your friends to make awesome brownies too!" <--- example

Its difficult to discern, but the best way is to find a way to make it valuable to share. For example, make a video so funny that people share it with their friends for a laugh. Thats hard to do but if/when you do it you will have unlocked something very special.

My mother would ALWAYS share my video on Facebook regardless if it gives information, or gives entertainment.

Start with yourself. You have probably watched a lot of YouTube throughout the years. What made you share a video? Most likely is the reasons that you have shared videos in the past the best ways to get people to share your videos.
My guess is that in most cases the best way is to make fantastic content, content people like so much or are touched by that they just have to share it with others.

But it's very hard to create that level of content, even if you try most videos will probably not reach that level. So another good way is most likely focusing on community building, building a community with the people who watches your channel regulary. Get to know them, talk to them, interact with them, make them feel like a part of the channel, a part of a team. Then every now and then you make a call to action for your community.

I wish my mom would do that:blush:

mmm... some my good friends sometimes share my video on Fb without me asking and I would also never ask... but I see people easily share videos when it’s funny or of course when you are already having a huge following.

My mother, too she makes sure she gets the link and shares all my videos to her WhatsApp groups and Facebook friends. I now need to concentrate more on the subscribers to my channel to putting on their notification bells as I discovered only 10% have their notification bell on. :(

Well at the end of my videos, I say like, share and subscribe but I don’t think that is what is making them share. My students do share to themselves most times not always though.

I have 8000 followers on twitter and it’s impossible to get tweets shares etc I’d like to know too
Start with yourself. You have Twitter. You follow other people. What are the reason that you share other peoples tweets the times you do that and what are the reason that you don't share peoples tweets all the time that you don't?

I always ask for people to like and subscribe. I rarely if ever ask them to share. This is something you just have to hope for, it really is a gut reaction from people and is a much bigger decision than simply clicking a thumbs up or subscribing which only affect them. Sharing affects others so people don't do it very easily and certainly not when asked to.

Thing is I’m a landscape artist on Twitter and my YT channel is based for kids. So chances are if I tweet my followers will soon dump me. I have thought about art tutorials as well. But unsure if that’s popular on YT. Looks like a long slog..
Anyway thanks for your thoughts

its unlikely that all 8000 of your followers would dump you for sharing one of your videos or your channel on there just because it's under a different niche. You could also maybe create a second twitter account for your YouTube and follow people within your YouTube niche while sharing your youtube videos on that new twitter account.
