    Hi, so everyone knows that you should use social media to promote yourself / get viewers. But how should I go about it? Also, how do I get people who see the posts to go to my channel? Thanks

    So who says that ?

    I've never used social media.

    Put up content people want to see with a catchy heading and that's all you need.

    Social media is a double edged sword. If it generate the wrong views, watch time and retention rate goes down. Meaning the videos ability to create natural views goes down.

    Don't use social media just for the sake of it, have a plan. And consider if the time and resources put into executing the social media plan is not better spend on the actual content.

    Social media is quite easy to use but the question is if it´s much help at all. Let´s say you have Facebook and/or Twitter and share your videos here when you upload to YouTube. Most of your FB/Twitter folowers probably know you have a Youtube channel and have probably already subscriberd then the share is more like a reminder. Maybe time is better spend on working with SEO???

    i paid 50$ for fb fanpage with the aim of promoting my channel, but rarely viewers come from i, i use some tricks but it only generate click bait, maybe it will lead to google crack down my channel. so i stop use it and think about how to take advantage of it.

    now i feel off that fanpage, i only have 50 subs atm, if i use 50$ to buy yt subs, maybe my channel will better than buy fanpage.

    I see the purpose of social media is to get engrained into a community. Answering questions and getting them to know you a bit better. I think of it as a tool to use to interact when I can't be at my computer. Over 90% of my viewers come from FB and Twitter.
