How to Get More Views on YouTube Live and Increase Your Views; Easy Live Streaming Tips
Hi there it’s Marcus!
Today we’re going to talk about how to get more views on your YouTube live stream!
You might want to know that I’m a bit of a stats junkie. I always like to look at stats. I always like to look at numbers and I always like to compare these things. So when I see a guy with like a hundred thousand subscribers or five hundred thousand subscribers go and do a live stream, only has about a hundred people on there and then I’m sitting here with a little tiny channel of about twenty-five thousand subscribers and I blow them out of the water with the amount of people I have on my live stream, I got to ask myself why?
We’re gonna answer that question so that you can start getting more views on your YouTube live stream starting right now!
Hey guys it’s Marcus again and welcome into the backyard office!
This is where I’ve done live streams for hundreds of thousands of people over the last few months. What I want to talk to you about today and if you like this stuff, you want to make sure you subscribe, click the little bell notification icon so that you get all the notifications when I go live and when I get new videos to teach you how to make more money with YouTube and get more views and blow up and all that good stuff.
Today what we’re gonna be talking about is how to get more views on your YouTube live stream.
When you go live, how would you like to have a bunch of people sitting there waiting for you to push the button, waiting to watch your stream and have lots of people on that stream instead of just like three people.
We’re gonna talk about that and the examples that I used in the beginning are actual real live examples. I go out there and I watch what people are doing I look at it I say ok this guy has a lot of subscribers and I know that he gets all the subscribers get notifications when he goes live so why is he only getting like 50 people or people or maybe a hundred and fifty people on the high end to watch his live stream?
We’re gonna talk about that because I’ve actually crushed it with my live stream numbers with just a small channel so we’re gonna show you how that works and I’m gonna show you five steps, five ways to boost the amount of people and increase the view time and viewers on your YouTube live stream. Let’s get started right now!
- LOOK AT YOUR TITLE/ TAGS.
What you want to do is you want to look at your title. Your title is very important alright what do you title your live stream? If it’s just like hey Marcus goes live, no one gives a rip about that this is just like your videos and you need to use keywords based on what people are searching for!
So instead of just “Marcus goes live” how about titling your video or your live stream something like “how to get more views to your YouTube live” or “how to bake a potato or whatever it is you’re going to go live about” Do the research, make sure your title is in line with things that are getting views and more importantly make sure that that title isn’t super competitive and you could do that by searching the title in the YouTube search box in quotes. Put it in quotes and I’ll show you how many people if there’s like million different results then you know it’s pretty competitive, but if there’s only like 500, boom you got a winner. We’ll show you how to gauge that as well so you want to do your title.
Also you want to do your tags. When you tag your livestream right when you do those little tags you’re gonna build your live stream out and then you’re gonna click the advanced button and it’ll take you to the tags. If you don’t do this, it’s going to use the default tags from your last video so pay attention. Make sure the title and the tags match each other so that you have a better chance of ranking high on the search engines.
- SCHEDULE YOUR LIVESTREAM IN ADVANCE.
Schedule your stream! Now this is very very important because you have the ability to schedule when you’re gonna go live for me on this channel you’re gonna want to subscribe because we go live at 10 a.m. on Wednesday and 10 a.m. Friday. We do live streams to help you with all this stuff so make sure you subscribe and click the bell.
When you schedule it, here’s the key.
When you schedule it you’re allowed to put your title in and your tags in and as this thing starts to rank your video is gonna rank and it’s gonna say this one’s gonna be live at this time and then when they click it it’s going to go to a little thing that counts down so they could be sitting there waiting for your live stream and if you’re consistent you’re gonna get a lot more views very very important.
Now again when you’re scheduling, make sure your title your description and your tags match the keyword that you want so if it’s based on like something that’s getting a lot of traffic recently boom you’re gonna have a better shot at getting that traffic and you’re gonna get a lot more views on your live stream.
- HAVE GOOD CONTENT.
Now let’s go over to number three. It doesn’t really need to be said but it does and that is have good content. Why does good content Matter? Aren’t we just after the Views? Well if you have good content people aren’t going to leave because what happens is YouTube sends out a notification and boom all your people that are subscribed are gonna get a little pop up that says go check out the livestream.
When they go to livestream and if you’re sitting there going well you know people are gonna leave and they’re not gonna watch it which is gonna make your view count drop and your watch time drop. What we want to do is want to get a view count up and our watch time up really really high.
- PIGGY BACK ON WHAT IS HOT.
Number four piggy back on what’s hot. Right now I’m making this video in my backyard office. I am set to jump on a plane and go across the country which by the way these are Eastern time okay I’m getting on a plane to go across the country again I did it last week too and I came in here to do a video even though we’re on a crunch for time because I found out that there was other people talking about live-streaming and top thinking about how to get more views so if I piggyback this on that search term boom it’s gonna work.
You’re gonna learn something here and I’m actually gonna show you a real time example of how that works so you can piggyback on what’s hot, look at your niche, find out what people are doing do searches find out that other category words the other things you can do because you could literally build your entire audience on fads.
People tell you don’t go for the Fads, don’t go for the quick stuff but you can build a business on it if you do it right. You can build your audience on it if you do it right and we’re gonna talk about that more on some other videos as well as I said I got a jet pretty soon.
- BUILD A MAILING LIST AND ANNOUNCE YOUR LIVESTREAM.
Number five, build a list and announce it. The big important thing you want to do is you want to own your audience. The reason you want to own your audience is because when these people go to your site and they join your list they subscribe all of this stuff and we’re talking about a mailing list here it’s because once you own them you could do whatever you want with them.
So I could actually email these people and say hey check it out here’s a live stream, two more days till the live stream boom were alive right now and on top of all the emails they’re getting from YouTube and all the little notifications they’re also getting emails me and boom before I even start my livestream there is a crowd of people waiting saying dude Marcus where are you why didn’t you start yet it’s 10:01. It’s10:02 now why haven’t you started yet, alright we try to start on time but you know sometimes stuff happens so that’s the big thing here. We’re going to talk more about this in a detailed way and we’re gonna talk about it on a live stream.
That’s right on Friday November 10th at 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on my channel here on the YouTube, we are going to have a two-hour live stream about live streams, how to build up your audience, how to make money, how to build a crowd and do stuff with that crowd so that you are not stuck with two viewers and 19 cents.
