Mega Tricks For The Description Of Your Videos

Yes, the description of your videos must be original, and fun, and that it is not duplicate content, blah, but let’s go with the tricks:

It is important to include the link to your channel subscription in the descriptions of your videos, but BEWARE, do it within the first 150 characters, or what is the same, in the first sentence. Why? Because this way it will not be hidden in the text area and it will be seen without the need to click on the “show more” button. Make it easy on people, man! With that, you also win.

Pssst! another little trick that I’m seeing some rascal Youtubers, put emojis in the type of the description, which attract a lot of attention, and in this way, you will increase your clicks.

Collaborate With Other Youtubers

It is very common in this world. I appear in your video, you in mine, and so we “exchange” followers.

This form of promotion works, but do not try to do it right away with the biggest ones because you will not get it unless it is your cousin. If you are a “small” YouTuber, try it with someone your size or maybe medium. And as you get older, you can aim higher.

There are a thousand ways to collaborate with other YouTubers: interview them, ask for their opinion, send them a gift asking them to mention you… I don’t know, be original! Without going any further Jacksepticeye, who now has 15 MILLION SUBS, began to grow thanks to a mention of Pewdiepie. In this video, he explains how he felt after the mention

Pay Attention To Trends And Other Nonsense

People who use YouTube usually like to be up to date, so paying attention to “trends”, and not only what is happening in your country but especially what is being done abroad, can inspire you. for your videos.

And remember that he who gives first gives twice. You see that the Mannequin Challenge is becoming fashionable in the United States, be the first to talk about it -and why not, also do it- in Spain.

If you are not the first, nothing happens either, you can mark a compilation of the best. figure it out!

Repeat Your Name Like A Parrot

To get subscribers on YouTube your name has to sound. And for that, you have to start by getting tired even of hearing you say it. Introduce yourself in each video as if it were the first.

Do not assume that even if you have followers, everyone knows you. Always start your videos remembering who you are or making your name appear visually. Or both. And outside the video, include your signature at the end of the description.

You kill two birds with one stone if you add the subscription link next to it.…

Why Is It So Important To Have Quality Subscribers?

A quality subscriber is someone who really follows your topic with interest and trusts you.

These people are the ones who will share your videos, make comments and, in short, get your channel to grow on its own, reaching a threshold, the famous snowball effect that, on the Internet, is produced in a particularly intense way when it happens.

What differentiates a good subscriber from a bad one?

The other passive subscribers will simply be there, increasing the number of subscribers that the cover of your channel shows, but beyond that, they will not contribute anything to you.

The thing is even clearer if we go to the economic effects. If you would like, apart from having fun, to generate income with your channel, again, this income will come almost exclusively from your most engaged subscribers.


I give you examples of different ways of monetization to see it:

  • If you recommend products using affiliate links to the websites of those products (which will generate commissions on purchases), for the most part, those who will pay attention to your recommendations will be the subscribers who trust you. So much so, that there are even very grateful people willing to return the favor by using your affiliate links.
  • If we take the previous example to the field of own products (typically an online course, for example), the behavior will be, again, very similar. Since they trust you they want your course, not the competition’s course and, again, they will be happy to reward you for your work by paying you for it.

For this reason, a channel with a community of 1,000 subscribers with whom you are very connected ( “engagement” ) is much more powerful than one with 10,000 who do not even know why they have subscribed.

Always keep this perspective in mind and do not get obsessed or impatient with the absolute number of subscribers.

The famous first 4000 hours of viewing

An exception to what I just mentioned is the famous 4,000 hours of viewing in the last 12 months and 1,000 subscribers that Google requires if you want to monetize your videos with YouTube ads ( AdSense ads ).

Here, capturing subscribers becomes a question of numbers and you can benefit from rapid growth strategies such as this very ingenious one that you can see in this video:

But beware, do not forget that the subscribers that they will generate for you, normally will not interest you too much. Consider this nothing more than a trick to overcome a concrete situation where it’s all about numbers.
