Let me start off by saying that this ain’t clickbait.
You really are able to gain a few hours of high retention views for nothing.
Seeing as getting quality HR views or at least some good watch time on your channel is almost impossible these days, I have a little tactic that you can start using immediately.
In fact, with this little tip, you dictate the amount of watch time you would like to add to your channel.
Here’s what you do…
Create a video. Any video, but make it long. My recommendation is to make it AT LEAST 20 min long. Of course, you can make it longer, but that’s up to you.
Upload that video.
Now here’s the gold.
Oh, but before you go onto the next step, you’ll need a VPN. Here’s my recommendation.
Open your own video and like it. Simple as that. Just hit that like button.
From there and while you’re on your video, leave a comment.
If you’re selling something, put your link in there. If you want to start a conversation, ask a question. Just leave a comment and be creative.
- Like that comment.
- Love that comment.
- Pin that comment.
We’re done with Step 1.
Moving on to Step 2 (GOLD)
Search your video’s ranking on our site (HERE).
Copy the keyword or keyword phrase and follow the steps below.
Again, I highly suggest that you connect to this recommended VPN before you do this.
If you don’t use a VPN, you run the risk of views not being counted which will make this whole strategy useless.
Use 3 different browsers (Incognito Mode), open YouTube, paste your keyword or keyword phrase and search.
If your video isn’t ranking yet, simply search for your entire Video Title. You’ll usually find it that way.
Open your video 18 times and watch it completely through.
This means, 6 times on each browser. NO MORE.
So basically, if your video is 20 minutes long, you’ll have added 360 minutes (6 hours) of watch-time to your video from the start.
Over and above that, you’ll also have increased your CTR (Click Through Rate) straight off the bat.
This is GOLD (again).
- Share your video on Reddit and watch it.
- Share your video on Twitter and watch it.
- Share your video on Facebook and watch it.
I highly recommend using our Engagement Packages to boost this for you a bit more, but that’s entirely up to you.
Comments are super important for ranking as it shows YouTube that people are engaging.
Embed your video on a website, Web 2.0 or blog and watch it.
Lastly, don’t be put off by the idea that you’ll only be starting off with 18 views. You must remember that those 18 views are 100% (or as close to that as possible) retention along with incredible CTR.
And there you go.
Four very simple, yet super powerful things that you can do straight off the bat after you make your video live that will give your video a tremendous boost.
