  1. Promote Your Channel to Existing Fans
    Do you already have an established website?

If your brand has an official website that gets consistent monthly traffic, then this means that there are tons of website visitors you can market your YouTube channel to.

That’s why adding your YouTube feed to your website is a great way to get more subscribers.

After all your website visitors check out your website because they’re already interested in your brand, right? Since they’re familiar with your website content, they’re more likely to check out your video content in YouTube as well.

How can you embed your YouTube feed to your website if you’re not tech-savvy, you ask?

We’ve got you. The perfect partner to help you is the Feeds for YouTube Pro plugin, the best YouTube feed plugin for WordPress. It lets you create, customize and display beautiful YouTube feeds on your website — no coding needed!

This means that your website visitors can readily watch your YouTube videos and subscribe to your channel right on your website.

Plus, just by checking options, you can even customize your YouTube feed to match your website’s design. So your YouTube feeds look consistent with your brand’s identity, even if you don’t have any background in design.

Concerned that Feeds for YouTube Pro will slow down your website? You don’t need to be, since it’s designed to be lightning fast.

Unlike other YouTube plugins that do autoplay, Feeds for YouTube Pro will start playing your videos only when your visitors engage with your YouTube feed. Meaning, your page speed won’t be negatively affected — your website will still load fast because of the plugin.

The best part? You don’t need to manually add your YouTube videos to your website each time you upload a new one. Since Feeds for YouTube Pro automatically adds your YouTube videos to your feed, you save lots of time and effort in updating your feed.

  1. Optimize Your YouTube Channel Profile
    The more optimized your YouTube channel is, the easier it is for your potential subscribers to find you. There are 3 things you need to pay attention to when it comes to channel optimization:
  2. Channel cover art

“Why should your subscribers follow your videos?” Include the short and sweet answer to this question in your cover art. Also, the channel art size should be 2560 x 1440 pixels.

  1. Channel icon

You can add your business logo here. Or if you’re a personal brand, a clear picture of you works as well. Ideally, the channel icon should be 800 x 800 pixels in size.

  1. Channel description

Inside your channel description, add relevant keywords that you want your YouTube channel to be associated with.

For example, in WPBeginner’s YouTube channel description, they added searchable keywords such as “WordPress beginners” and “WordPress video tutorials” so that their videos can be discovered when viewers search for these topics.

  1. Create a YouTube Video Popup
    Here’s another great way to grow your YouTube channel from 0 to 1000 subscribers: add a video popup to your website.

This way, your website visitors can also watch your YouTube videos when they visit your site. This is especially helpful when you want to promote a newly uploaded video.

Why? That’s because YouTube’s algorithm tends to feature videos that are both new and popular. So you need to promote your videos in the first 48 hours after it goes live.
