4. Use eye-catching YouTube thumbnails
We all judge the book by it’s cover. Therefore, creating a custom video thumbnail for each video instead of one being randomly generated. Though it’s a pretty minor factor, your thumbnail creates the first opportunity to stand out. Shooting short films or images for your thumbnail sounds like a good and fruitful investment.
5. Ask your audience!
The key to massive social media traffic is to get as many people as possible to share your posts through their social media channels. The simplest and easiest way is that at the end of each post, make a statement like “If you enjoyed this post, don’t forget to subscribe & share.” Another trick is to append your channel link with “?sub_confirmation=1” after https://www.youtube.com/.
6. Making your watermark as a subscribe button
All the YouTube creators might know that all will be having the chance to add their watermark. In general, people make the name of their channel or the logo of their company as a watermark. But it is so clever to use a subscribe button as a watermark because it enables your loyal viewers to subscribe to your channel without any pause or additional effort.

In the first 10 seconds of any of your videos, you must give a brief of the purpose of the channel and what kind of content will be posted on your channel. So some people who need that kind of stuff will definitely subscribe thinking that they have finally found a perfect channel to them.
O stands for Origin Story. It is very essential as it not just gives a brief idea about yourself but also the story might get connected to your viewer.

13. Focus on Quality approach
There is a general notion in people that posting more videos frequently will increase the viewers and subscribers. This is a wrong notion. YouTube posts 300 hours of videos for every one minute. So rather than focusing on posting many videos frequently it is advisable to post videos with strong and impressive content. This will draw more attention from people than posting numerous videos.

While your video adding something on the screen or doing something that is more than usual will definitely grab the audience attention. This indeed helps a lot in the growth of subscribers count.

Then write about how your channel is unique from other channels. In the end, give a friendly conclusion saying some friendly sentence with a subscribes your finishing note to finish your sentence.
