The best site for promoting that has worked THE best is honestly this forum. Facebook is also a good place for views (at least for me) but not subscribers.

Also I watched your introduction and not gonna lie I almost clicked off during the cringe section. So maybe don’t put that in all of your videos. But I decided to stick around and I’m glad I did! The rest of that video was great and the music was spot on too. Can’t wait to see what else you end up doing! I also subscribed so I won’t miss it.
Btw, I took your advise, I decided to change my channel trailer! I dont want the cringe to lure people away!

Facebook has been my best platform. I use an odd method, I push my videos to big pages and rely on them to repost to their facebook page. I have also sold shirts this way. The key to that strategy is it has to be good content that they think their followers will like. One video that had almost no views for the first month suddenly got this spike from one strategic share. One page shared and another saw it and shared, so it cascaded into like 100k views over a few days. You can see the blue bars are zero until a sudden moment and suddenly out of nowhere it spiked.

How do you push videos to big pages? Just post your videos on their page?

Ive heard reddit is by far the hardest to advertise on, so Ill try to avoid reddit. I might do facebook. ;>
It’s only hard because it’s flooded with dreamers who think they’ll be a mega hit if they do, but 99% ofbthem are junk! The secret to Reddit is making videos others will post on your behalf

From my experience I just send a message to the admin. If they like the video they share it and then boom, thousands of views. I've done this to multiple dog pages with success.

Some great tags, description and titles as well as thumbnails will do a lot better than just about any other website. Use things like rapidtags website to make great tags

Reddit is tricky since there are a lot of saltier people there. If you contribute to discussions and make a name for yourself, more people will be likely to check out your vid when you do post it. I've had some success there, but by far the best (and seemingly easiest) has been Facebook. I targeted a couple Warframe pages and started getting involved there. You also have the option to boost posts. Hope this helps.

Lots of great advice so far.. Remember that the key is consistency and to keep uploading, no matter what, even if you aren't getting the response that you feel you should.

Reddit isn’t hard to share your videos but you just need to find the right thread to post your videos because some people may leave nasty comments and they may even down vote your post.
