How to get 1000 Subscribers on YouTube (Top 10 Tips)

1. Appeal directly to your audience for a subscription, Now there is a school of thought that suggests asking for subscribers may sound a little desperate, cheesy but it's simply a part of the Youtube fabric. People ask you to smash that like button to improve the YouTube algorithm and engagement rates now we're simply asking you to subscribe to our channel for two reasons. Obviously you want these viewers to come back for future content on your channel but if you're open and honest and say that I need to get to 1000 subscribers to monetize my content and help sustain the channel I think subscribers and viewers would accept that.

2. Another way you could encourage your viewers to subscribe is to do something a little exciting and animate on screen. You can get all sorts of resources from all over the internet. Simply try what fits for you and you may see an upsurge in subscribers.

3. Our next tip is to take advantage of this icon which is your watermark branding. When viewers click on this icon it takes them to your channel where they could subscribe after watching more of your content. It's edited and created via the branding page on the creator studio.

Now we have a two pieces of advice for this little icon: first of all put the words subscribe in there just to encourage people to do exactly what it says and don't introduce it right at the beginning or the very end of your video. You want it to act as a visual distraction maybe 30 to 45 seconds into their video.

4. Now you can't put subscription links in video cards but you can put a subscription button in the end screens.

5. Next up we have what you might call a dirty little web trick. Whenever you share your YouTube channel add this ?sub_confirmation=1 to the end of your link and this is what happens. When users click on it they are prompted to automatically subscribe to your channel before actually visiting your YouTube channel page. As I say it's a little dirty that might annoy some users who get this pop-up and then click off your page but I bet the majority of them will be happily cancelling and looking at your channel or subscribing outright.

6. Another way to directly appeal to your audience for a subscription is to write a comment and then pin it to your videos. When you do this that pinned comment appears at the top of the comments list. Now again I feel as if honesty is the best policy. Be open and transparent, tell your audience why you're pinning these comments, why you're asking for subscriptions. Maybe it's because you want to invest some of the money you earn back into the channel with new equipment or products.

7. You could also add a similar message to the video description of all of your videos. If you have the bulk campaign manager is available on many extensions for boost and pro users it's accessed from the video manager page of the creator studio and as you can see on-screen you could add a message either before your current video description or after and add it to certain videos or all of your videos.

8. Another thing you can do is reach out to an entirely new audience by adding value to other channels. That might be watching their content and posting awesome comments that get pinned or liked by the channel creator and create a conversation. When people get involved in those conversations they're gonna think Hmmm this video creator perhaps has value on their own channel and visit your stuff and perhaps subscribe to your channel so think of it on a wider scale beyond just your current audience try and attract a new audience who may really enjoy your content and subscribe.

9. Our next tip may sound obvious but it does need reinforcing, post new content on a regular basis. For some viewers it may only take one video to convince them to subscribe to your channel but for others they may watch a video, enjoy it, but they don't subscribe. Then on their YouTube homepage they see another new video from you, they watch it enjoy it and say yep I've seen a couple of videos from this person now I enjoy their content I'm going to subscribe.

10. And following on the theme of encouraging viewers to become subscribers make sure that your channel homepage is very welcoming. A channel trailer, a good description about what your channel does including a good channel banner, and of course, plenty of playlists that tell the viewer exactly what your channel is about. In fact when you're sharing videos share the playlist video link. That means that when a viewer is watching your video they're within your playlist environment. They may see more videos that they like from your channel and eventually subscribe.

So those are ten tips to help you get up to 1000 subscribers. So why hasn't this Article ended just yet? Well we have an eleventh tip, a controversial, one we're not even sure we should suggest this but everybody else is going to do it so you might as well know what it's about.  Sub4Sub. We can't avoid this subject. Now that youtubers need to get up to 1000 subscribers it's almost a legitimate reason for youtubers to post Sub4Sub. They're actually helping out each other to get to a numerical value in order to satisfy YouTube needs. But this comes with a lot of caveats.

If you do Sub4Sub there's a very small chance that you're actually going to get any valuable watch time from those subscribers and if there's a lot of Sub4Sub going on from channels that have no intention of actually producing any decent content or indeed any content whatsoever- they might be gaming the YouTube system - those channels could get deleted by YouTube and then you lose a slew of subscribers. The main thing you should be doing is spreading a message of value that convinces viewers to become subscribers and not through some simple transaction to get to a target
And as a final note on the subject of Sub4Sub if you do follow YouTube by the book it breaks their Terms of Service and you could receive a strike on your channel so you have been warned. And that's it for this video I hope you found it enjoyable, informative and useful. If you did visit our website again and up YouTube algorithm, and of course if you want more content just like this subscribe to Vital Tech. You see it's easy.
