How To Use Social Media To Grow Your YouTube Channel

Social media is one of the best tools you have when it comes to growing your YouTube channel. It allows with you to connect easily with other YouTubers, and it gives you a platform outside of YouTube to connect with your current and future audience. Thus, it needs to be taken advantage of. That being said, this tutorial will be focused specifically on the use of Twitter as a platform to grow your channel as that is what I have experience with.

Connecting With Other Creators

Twitter is an amazing way to meet other creators. I know we say this a lot here at DropbackTV, but working with other creators is a great way to grow your channel. Twitter can allow you to meet and get to know other creators before you work with them. You can share content back and forth on Twitter and build a relationship before you even think about making a video with the other content producer.

Keeping In Touch With Your Audience

Twitter, and other social networks for that matter, can provide a great place for you to keep in touch with your audience. It allows you to promote new content as soon as it comes out, and get views from people who may have missed it in their subbox. There have been many times where I have gotten replies on Twitter from people who have said that they didn’t see my video in their subbox, but they did see it on Twitter. Twitter allows you to get more views from people who already know about an like your content.

Getting A Push From Larger Creators

Twitter can also allow you to connect with YouTube content creators that are much larger than you. This can allow you to get retweets, shoutouts, and possibly collaboration from YouTubers that have a much bigger following than yourself. Getting into contact with these large content creators can be difficult. Thus, you need to do it loosely. Rather than tweeting them your content every time you upload a new video – that’s a very bad idea – you can simply engage with them. Respond to the Tweets they send out, get to know them, and build a relationship. Then, tweet them a video that you consider a home run. One that you think is better than the rest of your videos. They will most likely check it out if you’ve built a relationship with them, and if they enjoy, that might retweet it or tweet it out so their audience can see it.

And, that is everything. If I’ve forgotten something, please let us know in the comments below this post!
