You probably must have heard of the phrase “friends without Benefits”, or is it the other way around?
Either way the site I am going to introduce you to, is definitely a site that is friendly and comes with some benefits.
As a youtube creator you must be tired of coming across different ways to get views to your videos especially if you are just starting out…Right?
You must have heard about optimizing your videos with your targeted keywords in your video title, descriptions and tags. In some cases the optimization works and in some nothing actually happens.
Now if very little or actually nothing happens to a video that you have put in a lot of time and effort to create and in some cases even money, you are not just going to let the video go without many people watching it right? So
How do you go about getting more views to such a video?
For a start we all know youtube rewords videos that generate views from external website, outside of the youtube platform…with either ranking it up on the search engines or suggesting it on other top ranking videos.
Well of course the reword will also depend on the video average view duration and the session watchtime on youtube.
Now my experience growing my channel is that as a beginner just starting out on youtube you have to put in the time and effort to promote your videos so that it gets some traction from youtube.
Trust me it gets easier as your channel grows…Now one of the ways to start getting easy traffic or views to your videos is by posting your video content on other platforms that have a good number of visitors a month
Examples of such platforms, are facebook, instagram, pinterest and so on….I have videos on all those platforms on this channel
Today we are going to be looking at a new platform to easily post video content for more view and the site is called webtalk on webtalk.co
