Increase Your YouTube Platform by Michael W. Furlonger
Why Is Getting 1000 Followers on YouTube A Great Milestone?
Setting a goal is helpful in any process of life. When ChristianWritersBookstore started it’s YouTube channel, the goal was 100 subscribers. The reason for this goal was to be able to give the name YouTube.com/ChristianWritersBookstore (Be sure to Subscribe and share).
The next goal for many YouTubers is reaching the 1000 subscribers mark. The reason for this, I can only assume, is the ability to monetize your channel.
The 5 Tips To Achieve Your Goal
1. Create high-quality content that is engaging and relevant to your target audience.Tweet
ChristianWritersBookstore began with a high focus on reaching Christian writers and build the blogging platform to advertise their published work and promote their blogs. In the future, we will be focusing more on video promotions.
(Make sure your videos are well-produced, visually appealing, and have good audio quality.)
2. Optimize your videos for search by using relevant keywords in your titles, descriptions, and tags.Tweet
While I shy away from the camera, I know that it’s more than a well done video (or written book) that wins. That’s why there is such a high focus on SEO and Readability on the website. But I also use vidiq.com/CWBS to make sure that I’m using ideal titles, descriptions and tags.

3. Promote your videos on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.Tweet
While setting up ideal SEO (Search Engine Optimization), it is incredibly important (and simple) to reach out to friends and family on your social media and email.
Simply asking your friends, “Hey. Can you check out my channel and subscribe?” will eventually move you to be more noticed on the YouTube algorithm.
4. Collaborate with other YouTubers in your niche.Tweet
When an author or artist signs up to ChristianWritersBookstore, they are asked to share their alternate websites and YouTube channel. Not only does this help to make sure that ChristianWritersBookstore is the right fit for them, we subscribe to their channels.
Once they get a Gold or Gold Supreme membership, we showcase their videos directly on their Author Page (they will also have the ability to edit, add, remove as they wish).
5. Engage with your audience by responding to comments and messages.Tweet
This is a huge step that can’t be ignored. When you’re trying to build a loyal following, your followers also want to know that you’re loyal to them. As your audience increases, it becomes more and more difficult to reach out to everyone, but should definitely be considered.
Remember, YouTube Takes Time And Effort.
Stay consistent, keep creating great content, and engage with your audience, and you’ll be on your way to 1000 followers in no time!
