How do you drive traffic to your channel? I want to find more organic ways to drive traffic to our channel! What do you use to encourage growth outside of optimising your channel?

If you're already using the most common places such as FB, Twitter, TikTok and Reddit then you're already ahead of the game. There's only so much you can do to spread the word. The next step should be to make your content better and better as you learn what works and what doesn't.

I personally found non social media forums work well. I use a diy forum which generates a lot of traffic to my videos. This in turns bumps up the YT viewership.

I've been having some success using Pinterest and promoting the pins a little here and there. Not much, just $9-10 over 3 days. It's getting me increased views for sure. Good luck!

Also traditional media, not just online. Home mailers, magazines, newspapers, flyers people are still going outside and see things that are not just on the computer or phones. I did a postcard mailer that did really well and brought in TONS of new fans!

Engage with other content creators in the comments section of YouTube videos. Don't self-promote at all- just engage with users. Doing this will help you get your channel in front of more people that are already on YouTube.

You can also try social media platforms like @HeatherPsyD recommended.

I use Reddit and it’s helped my channel quite a bit. Just find forums that fit in your niche and tell others about what you do and share your thumbnails / links so if they’re interested they’ll take a look

You forgot to mention.. engage with creators within your niche!! Just engaging with any creator, can really be difficult on your channel. :)

I found that every time i shared links on reddit they always got rejected or banned from a group which was frustrating. So i just on our page on reddit.
