How to get subscribers for YouTube? 15 useful tips
Take note. These tips will help you not only gain subscribers on YouTube, but also get more views and likes.

To increase the visibility of your videos in YouTube search results, it is essential to optimize the key elements. These elements are, in essence:
Use the main keyword of the video in those elements, always in an organic and natural way.
2. Use attractive thumbnails
An attractive thumbnail can be a decisive factor in capturing viewers’ attention and increasing the chances of them clicking on your video. Make sure your miniatures are:
- Visually striking
- Representative of the content they offer.
Take a look at your competitors’ videos (on the same keywords) to see how you can differentiate yourself and stand out.
3. Publish regularly
Consistency is key to getting subscribers on YouTube. Set a regular posting schedule and stick to it. This lets your subscribers know when to expect new content from your channel and increases the chances that they will return.
4. Buy YouTube subscribers
As we have pointed out, the fastest and most effective method of improving your channel’s image and getting new subs is to buy YouTube followers.
IN NO CASE WILL YOU COMPROMISE THE SECURITY OF THE CHANNEL. This is a common myth about buying followers. The truth is that, with gradual growth and the delivery of real subs (such as those offered by Amedia Social), growth is assured.
5. Collaborate with influencers in your niche

Be sure to use these features in each of your videos to maximize your chances of increasing your subs base.
7. Encourage audience participation
Create interactive content that invites viewers to comment, ask questions or participate in challenges. Respond to comments and generate conversations, creating a sense of community and loyalty among your subscribers.
8. Use SEO strategies for YouTube
Research keywords related to your content and use them strategically in your titles, descriptions and tags. In addition to the main keyword, use other relevant keywords to improve your ranking in search results.
9. Participate in communities and forums
Join groups or forums related to your topic on platforms such as:
- Facebook Pages
- LinkedIn Groups
- Instagram groups
Participate actively, share your content in a useful way and avoid spamming. This will help you establish yourself as an expert in your field and attract interested subscribers.
10. Conduct contests and sweepstakes
Organize contests or sweepstakes on your channel, where viewers can enter to win prizes. Establish as a requirement to participate that they subscribe to your channel, which will allow you to get new interested subscribers.
11. Edit your channel profile
Your profile is another gateway to your channel. Therefore, it must make a good impression. You can create a welcome video and have it play automatically. It is also important to upload an interesting profile picture and an eye-catching cover, with a clean and professional design.
12. Leave comments on other channels
We’re not talking about the typical “copy and paste” spam to get users to stop by your channel. Don’t do that. We mean commenting on videos you like from other youtubers, as long as it makes sense and the content really interests you. You can go through channels in your niche to attract an audience with similar interests.
13. Ask for it directly
There is nothing wrong with asking your viewers to subscribe to the channel. If they liked the video, maybe the request will work. Also remind them to “turn on the little bell” on YouTube so that they receive a notification every time you post content.
14. Check out the trends
People like to know what the latest YouTube or social media trend is. As long as the topic makes sense within your content, you can talk about it or (for example) make a compilation of the latest trends in your industry.
15. Analyze your subscribers
The Creator Studio tool, within the same YouTube platform, can give you valuable information to grow your channel. Here you will also be able to see aspects such as display time (also very important) or the estimated income for the month.
And if you want to see how your numbers are doing in real time, you can use online tools like Social Blade.
