Ways to get more Subscribers on YouTube in 2012

1. Post your videos on Pinterest – Pinterest is the talk of 2012 as far as photo sharing and social book marking is concerned. If you’re not on Pinterest, check out some of the reasons why you might want to consider it. One of the best ways to get your videos shared virally in 2012 is to pin them to a Pinterest board.

5. Share videos on your Google Plus page – If you have a Google Plus profile or business page, consider sharing a link to your videos on your page. Add a short description and ask viewers to subscribe to your channel, remember that old motto, ‘if you don’t ask you don’t get…’

    The Best way I have seen to work with other YouTubers to get subscribers is to ask them at specific moments during the video’s using annotations etc . I Hope this helps :)

    Cool Tips Fabrizio! I think sending an email to your list can help too, if it was helpful to them they will more likely share it on their social media friends too.

    Hi Fabrizio, thanks for the suggestions. I also agree with what Saad said about using annotations. They even have a way for us to track the effectiveness of the annotations in our analytics dashboard now too.

    Thanks for the post!

    so simply post or tag your video on all the social sites which u r using… another way i found is..when u enter tags for video. just give much as u can. then the chances of view of the video will increase via search…nice topic of discussion.. i think many of us r searching for this…:)
