Note: As we mentioned before, increasing YouTube views is not a separate stage, so here you will find me talking about essential and initial points for your YouTube channel and videos, which start from the initial stages.
Content is King
This sentence is considered one of the most famous sentences in the world of e-marketing , and it is a short but expressive sentence, and it contains a lot of power behind it that makes a big difference between adults and children.
Content is the king, and it will remain the king, whether in the kingdom of written content or in the kingdom of visual content (that is, videos and specifically YouTube videos that we are talking about today).
But what does it mean that the content is king in the world of YouTube? And how do you, as a person looking to increase YouTube views, produce proprietary content with which you can gain millions of views?
This is exactly what we will answer in the following points, keep reading and keep your focus.
What does content mean in youtube?
Content in the world of text articles like our article this means everything that is written in front of you in the article, which represents an idea that is addressed or explained through written texts.
In the world of YouTube videos, content means everything that is displayed in that rectangle (this includes image and sound). It is also supposed to address an idea, explain a way to do something or present a set of information.
Content in the world of YouTube is a set of visual and audio elements that aim to achieve a purpose, and because the world of video is a world more spacious, flexible and innovative than the world of text articles, so there are many options and ways that you can choose among them to produce content for YouTube.

Here is a list of the most important ways to produce video content for YouTube:
Note We will assume here that you are fond of raising pets, and you have a channel or are trying to create a YouTube channel about pets. (This is just an example that will help us explain)
a) live youtube video
This method relies on the use of the camera in filming live scenes, through which it is possible to create innovative and rare content that attracts millions of views.
It takes some effort and patience to get the perfect scene, but with some preparation and experience you can get great scenes with less effort.
In our previous example, as the owner of a YouTube channel about pets, you can photograph your pet playing, playing, and doing funny acrobatics.
b) Programmatic YouTube video (eg TV shows)
This method is one of the most popular ways to produce professional videos for channels that discuss, explain and present ideas and topics in different fields.
In this method, one person often appears in front of the camera to talk about an idea or explain a topic, according to a pre-made script.
According to our example, on your channel you will produce videos in which you talk about pets and how to raise them, and in each video you will talk about a specific aspect of it.
c) An analog YouTube video
In this way to create content for YouTube, you present your ideas or topics through an analog video, that is, a movie clip as a model or simulation of a scenario.
In our example, you can make a representative clip to show a model of a problem between two life partners because of the pet, and also show in a representative way how to solve this problem well.
Note in the first three methods you will rely on the camera primarily to create YouTube content.
D) YouTube video through one of the programs
In this method, you will create a video through one of the specialized programs. There are dozens of programs through which you can make a YouTube video without using a camera.
Including programs for recording from the screen, programs for assembling images with texts, advanced programs for creating animations, and graphic programs of all kinds.
In our example, for example, you can make an animated video to explain some information and behaviors about dog breeding.
Note: There is a difference between video maker software and video editing and editing software:
Editing and editing programs are indispensable programs for creating YouTube content in any way.
Video makers are programs that specialize in making a complete video without using a camera.
(Some programs of this type are integrated programs for creating and editing videos).
In this regard, I advise you to read the two articles in the links below:

Best video maker software with resources to learn to use
These four methods are the most popular ways to produce content for YouTube, but you must understand that there are a lot of other sub-methods, and there are also a lot of different ideas that you can use with these methods.
Of course, you can use two methods together to get a unique intro or ending to your video.
Why is content also king in the kingdom of YouTube?
I will answer this question through a set of data, which will lead us to the answer (the result) logically:
1. Let us agree that what stands behind YouTube is a well-established company, Google, and let us also agree that the main goal, whether for Google in general, or for its giant YouTube project, is to make profit.
2. On the other hand let's agree that YouTubers… are people who seek to get problems resolved, questions answered, or entertainment entertained through YouTube.
Of course, they are satisfied when they find a great, high-quality video for their purpose.
3. For YouTube to continue and prosper and obtain the highest level of profits from its users, it must put the user's satisfaction as a priority.
Based on these three data, we conclude that content is the king in the kingdom of YouTube, and it is the vital initial element on which the increase in YouTube views depends, and therefore it is the element
How to produce proprietary content to increase YouTube views?
Royal content is not super content as some think, but it is subject to a set of standards by which you can produce royal content and gain millions of views on YouTube.
Here is a set of the most important specifications of royal content, through which you can increase YouTube views:
a) Royal Content is legal and does not violate the YouTube Rules.
No one wants to waste their efforts, so you should be a smart YouTuber to start browsing the YouTube laws in detail and carefully, and avoid breaking these laws.
b) Royal content is content that puts the viewer first and seeks to please him in any way
In our previous example on the Pet Channel, suppose you are a pet lover, and you search on YouTube for a video on basic vaccinations for a newborn cat. In this case, what do you expect from a video that talks about this topic?
- The video presenter should be professionally aware of all the points on this topic.
- The content of the video must be accurate.
- The video should contain reliable information as a result of research from reliable medical sources.
- That the content of the video covers the topic completely.
- That the video addresses the most important side points related to this topic.
I can put a lot of other specifications, but the bottom line here is a video that provides content at a high level of quality and efficiency, and thus achieves the viewer's satisfaction.
Note: Good content does not mean scientific and academic content only, but good content is an attribute that must be applied to any video, whatever its purpose. For example, YouTube comedy channels can also produce enjoyable comedy content, which achieves the purpose of entertaining the viewer, adding a comic atmosphere to his time, and extracting the laughter that lies within.
c) Royal content is professionally edited.
You are an expert in animal husbandry and you have a lot of information, but you do not have the capabilities and skills with which you can make a video professionally. What's the point here?
These are the most important points that will enable you to professionally produce royal content:
- high quality picture
- clear sound
- Good attendance from the speaker.
- Professional script.
- Professional montage.
We have talked about the content in detail, and we have given it special importance in our topic, because without good content everything will not pay off.

Second, adjusting the channel is an effective element in increasing YouTube views
Your YouTube channel is the main interface of your YouTube presence. You should be a YouTuber to pay great attention to every video that is published, and this will be discussed in detail shortly, but there are many things that must be done in the channel itself, which contributes greatly to increasing YouTube views.
Here is a list of the most important points that you should pay attention to in your YouTube channel:
1. Create channel code
It is the small image that appears in the channel at the top right. The image should be convincing, accurate to your brand, and easily recognizable, preferably a 98 x 98 pixel image.
You can hire a logo designer to make a logo that expresses your channel and the content you provide, or you can do that by using one of the famous logo design programs.
2. Channel Image
It is the large image that appears in the background of the channel, like the image of disbelief on Facebook. You must choose an attractive image that expresses the channel's activity and what it has provided.
The ideal image size is 2560 * 1440.
You can change this image from time to time to reflect popular events and recent activities in the channel. For example, in the month of Ramadan, you can make a special picture with a design that expresses the month of Ramadan.
Also, if you decide to publish a video every week on a specific day, you can add the phrase “every Tuesday” to the design, for example, to draw the user’s attention to the weekly date of publishing new videos
3. Channel Description
A compelling description of your YouTube channel should allow viewers to know why they are interested in your videos, and what content you provide through that channel.
Write a professional description of your channel, in which you talk about your passion and goal of creating this channel, and how you put user satisfaction in the foreground, and it is okay to put some marketing phrases that encourage subscribing to the channel and contributing to its dissemination.
4. Add social networking pages links
Putting links to social media pages helps to give the channel a professional appearance, and also enables you to build a community on these social networking.
5. Create Play Lists
Play Lists must be created for your channel's content, so that viewers can watch the videos in succession after the first video ends.
And playlists should be divided so that each list contains similar, complementary, or closely related videos, and good titles should be given to each list.
Playlists help to get more views for each video that is played, without having to go to the main player of the channel.
You can embed and share playlists on your channel homepage. Playlists are great for educational or entertaining content that tells a story with relevant videos.
It has also been proven that combining every new video you make to the playlist with old videos that already have views, will make it get a very large amount of additional views.

6. Set a fixed schedule for posting new videos
Search engines know and YouTube always recognizes active channels, the more videos you publish, the more interest you will have to crawl your channel, and then raise its rank in search engines, and this of course will increase YouTube views.
You should post new content at least once a week, and your content upload schedule should be consistent.
I see many successful YouTubers making new videos on fixed dates every week, and continuously, so that the audience is sure that they will see a new video every Sunday, for example, so they visit the channel on time to watch the new video.
If you find it difficult to get new ideas, you should return to the article How to get YouTube video ideas .
My friend, are you keeping your focus yet? I hope that your answer is yes, there is still a lot of information and ideas that I would like to give you to be able to increase YouTube views.

Third, adjust the video as it should, it will bring you more views on YouTube
The content is the king as we mentioned before, but there is the outfit in which the king appears, and it is in the world of YouTube that it is of very special importance. The king must appear in royal garb in order to gain the prestige that everyone respects, appreciates, and knows his worth.
These are the most important points that will enable you to put your royal video content in royal attire:
1. Choose the appropriate title for your videos
One of the most important factors on which you will get YouTube views is your video title.
Before YouTubers can see your videos, they have to find them first. The user will only be able to find your videos by selecting the appropriate, interesting and attractive descriptive titles.
Here we have to point out that the good short title that appears completely on the user's screen, is the one that appears clearly as a professional title, and accordingly it is clicked.
Also, if you choose a title with the most important search words used by YouTube visitors, which should already be closely related to your video content, then you are taking the first real step on the way to getting good YouTube views.
2. Pay attention to the description of your videos
The description of the video is the means or method by which you define YouTube about what your video is about, and therefore it is an essential source for YouTube to categorize your video, and then show it in the search results based on this classification.
Also, the description is another great opportunity to include your keywords and search terms, so as to have the greatest possible chance of your video being found.
In the description, you can also put links to your blog or pages on social networking sites, and you can write full texts in the video (for example, in the case of a song, you can write the lyrics).
3. Choose your Tag Video accurately and intelligently
The video tag is like the keywords for the video, so you should carefully choose the tag for the YouTube video that you upload, so that it also expresses the content of the video, and with the title and description, it forms the most important triangle on which the success of the video depends.
Also, writing the appropriate tags helps YouTube sort the video clip and include it according to the appropriate classification, and then it appears in the appropriate search results, and this of course increases the percentage of clicks and then the increase in views.
4. Thumbnails are one of the most important attractions for your video
Be sure to choose an appropriate image from the three images that YouTube itself suggests, or add a special image that you upload yourself (this is of course the most professional option).
(Avoid making an attractive image, but far from the content of your site, as this will harm the video).
5. Add end screens and cards in videos
End screens and cards are advanced features that have been added to YouTube, and you can use them in videos, through which you can increase engagement and get more views.
a) End screens
End screens are a special screen that you can display at the end of the video in the last seconds, you can choose to display it in the last five seconds, and up to the last 20 seconds.
Through it, you can display other videos in front of the viewer, or you can invite the viewer to subscribe to the channel.
Cards are interactive messages that you can create and include in your YouTube video content, with which you can promote your official website, encourage viewers to take action, or conduct viewer polls.
Fourth, other points to make your videos get more YouTube views
1. Add videos on social media pages
Despite the fact that most social networking sites provide the ability to upload the video directly, sharing YouTube video links on social networking sites still has an impact, and through it, good results can be achieved, especially if they are applied intelligently.
One of the great ideas that you can implement is to make a summary of the video and upload it to social networking sites, noting at the end that the full video is on the YouTube channel, with the YouTube link.
Promoting your videos through social networking sites does not always have to be direct. For example, you can make text posts talking about the content of your videos, with the video link in the comments and indicating this in the post.
2. Ask your audience what content they want
It's amazing for the viewer when you ask him what he needs or wants to watch, and then you go and make it for him. In fact, this helps build bridges of loyalty between you and the viewer.
You can also create the content that the viewer wants without being asked, by repeating the ideas of the videos that got the highest viewership (what is meant here is to repeat the content of the idea, not the idea itself).
I made a video about cat vaccinations and it was a great success, if you do one about dog vaccinations, and one about pet rabbits…etc.
You can link this idea with the idea of promoting through previous social networking sites, where you can directly through social networking sites make a survey to get new ideas for your channel, and at the same time promote the published content.
Example: You have a channel about bodybuilding, and you have a Facebook page for the channel. And I had covered a previous video on your channel entitled “10 Tips for Every Beginner in Bodybuilding”.
Now you can write a post like this on your Facebook page:
“In a previous video on my channel, I covered 10 tips for every beginner in bodybuilding. What ideas would you like me to explain in detail in the next video of these ten ideas?
Also, you should always read the comments of the viewers, as these comments can be a treasure for creating new content.
3. Encourage existing viewers to subscribe
People who watch and enjoy your videos are a great source for potential future views of your content. Once you subscribe, they can choose to be notified each time you post new content.
This method will fetch instant views as soon as a new video is posted, by sending an automatic notification from YouTube to the user.
Always ask your audience to subscribe to the channel and activate the alert feature, by adding a phrase that urges the viewer to take follow-up action with attractive and good terms to subscribe.
Also, at the end of the video itself, invite people to like the video, and ask them to share the video with their friends on social media.
4. The first five seconds
Studies say that most YouTube viewers decide during the first 5 seconds of a video whether to continue or close the rest of the video.
So make the first 5 seconds of your video as powerful and engaging as you can be.
The first five seconds is the power of a magnet that you can shape yourself to make the scenes stick to the video until the end.
5. Take advantage of Embed
If you have a personal blog or a website for your channel, you must include your videos in this blog or this site. Include the subscribe button on the YouTube channel in a prominent place in the blog.
If you don't own a website or blog, it's okay to create a free WordPress blog specifically for that, and then download themes for the video topic and embed the video itself through the Embed feature.
Also, adjust the video settings to allow any website or blog owner to embed your video on his site or blog through the Embed feature provided by YouTube.
You must make a special setting that allows this feature, as it will not be added automatically.
