    I have been researching for strategies how to get most views within the first 12-24 hours from the video is published now besides using Reddit & Google+ forums I saw that some uses google adwords to get more of the organic views & likes they need in order to get the youtube algorithm to rank their videos on the first page for their targeted keywords. There is a lot of forums who doesn't allow self-promotion, therefore, I was thinking about what other alternatives there was in order to promote your videos.

    I was wondering if anybody had either experience or knowledge about this and wanted to share it?
    I do know that It's not enough to only promote your videos but also important to select the keywords which no one else competes for or youtube will never rank you on the first page.

    I have used AdWords two times and each time wasn’t worth it.

    I am a smaller channel and don’t have many subs or views and the videos that I put AdWords onto went crazy in terms of views. From 20 views to 1000 and more so that’s good.
    But from that I got 1-2 subs and 1-2 comments. Very little interaction from these views either and average watch time was like 10% of the video. Now it could be that the content wasn’t what people had wanted to see or that my content wasn’t good enough but I spent some good money for this and the payoff was not worth it. For a bigger channel I would think it has better effects or even from a channel that has higher quality it might work as well.
    I just don’t think paying money for some extra views is worth it and you should go about getting them the old fashioned way through social media and forums and other, free, sources.

    My last video was about this very subject. I got 51 subs spending £78 in my 2 week experiment. Not amazing, but I am glad I did the experiment, it means that if I had a recurring revenue stream from other areas of my "non 9-5" activity and wanted to invest in growth of my channel, I could get about 65 subs with £100 spend (if I wanted to) as a small YouTuber, I am ok with those numbers, thought they aren't amazing.

    But then again, I am an AdWords pro, I have used it for about 6-7 years as part of my day job, so it's probable that I had a stronger setup... Let me know if you have any questions, I am happy to help!
