With the internet providing even more diverse kinds of content, spending time on the internet has further helped the proliferation of the internet. Today, one of the most visited sites on the internet would be YouTube and because of this, a strong community of YouTube content consumers as well as YouTube creators has made their way to the platform.

One of the most prominent content consumption site, there are many people on YouTube who’ve turned famous solely based on the content that they create on the platform. Many Nepali celebrities like Nattu Shah and Promise Tamang have also found fame through the platform and this many new Nepali YouTubers have also found their to the platform.

But, standing out on the site is not as easy as it seems and a lot of hard work and dedication is required to make it big on the platform. Here are some tips on how to stand out on YouTube.

  • Unique Content: No matter what kind of tips and trick you employ to garner more views on your YouTube videos, nothing beats good quality content. Because of a vast array of videos on the website, standing out can be an issue but if you have intelligently thought out content, you might be able to draw a good number of viewers.
  • Search Engine Optimization: This is an absolute must you want to get views on your videos. When people search for a specific term on any search engine, you’d want your content to be among those results. If you’re smart and you tag your content with tags, hashtags and a proper description, then your content will tend to appear in search engine results. Also try registering your content on these optimization sites which will increase the chances of your video appearing on the search results shown.
  • Catchy Titles and Thumbnails: While there have been a host of YouTubers who have been criticized for their adding click-bait type titles (titles that don’t correspond with the video content and rather work to pull in clicks); having a title that sounds nice and catches a viewer’s eyes is not that bad. Click-baiting content is definitely not good but adding creative titles to your videos can always be a boon. Also think about the thumbnails to your videos, since YouTube allows creators to add a picture as a thumbnail, creative thumbnails could help you attract more viewers to your content.
  • Respect: Respecting the community goes a long way in building a strong fan-base. YouTube is populated by a lot of different kinds of people and while some of them might be trolls who just want to criticize you, it’s also populated largely by people who just want to watch quality content on the platform. It’s how content creators react to these trolls that makes a lasting impression of a channel’s fan-base. Always try to be respectful to the people who like your content and they’ll respect you in turn. You’ll have a lot of people who’ll like you this way.
