Hi everyone!
I'm curious what creators have found to be the most successful platform for promoting their content and bringing in views?
Has it been a social media site like twitter, instagram, tiktok, etc.?
A forum like this one?
I saw someone recently talking about how reddit has caused a huge spike in traffic on their channel.
What has your experience been?

If u have good Insta followers then it can be a good one. Community forums and YouTube itself will be good one.

Facebook and Twitter have pretty much been an even distribution of views, but LinkedIn was the biggest push for my last video to be honest.

Possibly Instagram. My art combained with my youtube link in my profile leads people to be interested enough in finding out more about me, so they click on the video. Twitter has it's moments, but I don't think twitter has long term potential compared to the gallery nature of Instagram, despite twitter allowing direct links to video. The instant, and non gallery nature of twitter kind of works against it. So I dare say Instagram.

For now, mostly from my personal Facebook account then on Facebook groups I joined based on my niche (Fitness & Nutrition). Second is Reddit with my own niche. Last is Instagram since I'm not too active there. Also I been trying to be active in YouTube via commenting on the videos I watch. No so sure how that will help

For me, nothing but YouTube itself, as pointed out by my analytics, discord was the worst, Reddit has it’s moments, instagram is ok but posting links means they’re inactive, Facebook is just an ocean of sub4sub.

YouTube is it :blush:

Hey Damo, how else can you suggest to promote in YouTube, besides commenting?
Just keep uploading, that’s mainly all it is, the rest is done by the YouTube algorithm, basically it’s figuring out what your content is about and what niche you’re in, then it’s recommending it to the appropriate audience, and if your video does really well, YouTube will keep promoting said videos, but if not they’ll down rank said videos.

This is why SEO is important when making titles and writing descriptions, paired with kick *** thumbnails, optimizing these to your target audience will rank you in search, but ultimately you want to make sure your videos have something valuable for your audience, you need to make really good content that’s so attractive that it will attract more views and subscribers, but of course, easier said than done, you want big numbers, you gotta earn them, which means you gotta work.
