Whether you realize it or not, YouTube promotion is a key part of growing your channel. If your goal is to grow, your goal should also be to get promoted- read on to learn why and how.
What exactly is YouTube Promotion?
YouTube promotion is a term that encompasses quite a few things, but we’re going to define the range relevant to Grin for the purposes of this article. Basically, YouTube promotion is using anything you can to promote your YouTube channel by bringing it to a wider audience or improving the quality of the content that you create.
In that light, there’s quite a few ways to go about promoting your YouTube channel. Promotion leads to views, which leads to engagements, which leads to adviews, which leads to money. Or, Promotion = Engagements = $$$ for short. If your goal is to continue growing your following on YouTube, you should use all tools at your disposal: including Grin.
About The Grin Platform
The Grin Platform is our primary offering. With the Grin Platform, you can interact with a wide variety of content creators who are selling their services. These services can all serve as a form of YouTube promotion, either in the form of spreading your channel to a wider audience or helping you improve your videos/channel
People talk about shoutouts frequently, but often understate their value. By getting a shoutout from another creator, they expose a large portion of their audience to your content. Once someone has been exposed to one of your videos, or your channel as a whole, a lot more goes on than just the initial view. Sure, you get ad revenue for the people who click on your video- but what about the people who watch it all the way through?
This is where they’ll stop, think, and decide if they want more. If they do, you’ll see your subscriber count go up. Once you’ve made a positive impression on someone, their subscribing to your content means your overall reach has increased, and you’re more likely to get repeated views from them in the future.
Of course, another great form of YouTube promotion is collaboration. Collaboration involves two or more YouTube creators choosing to work together on content creation. If they plan on doing long-term, they may open a channel to host their new content. If it’s a one-off thing, they’ll have to decide which channel hosts the content (usually the bigger one), though sometimes the collaboration may stretch across two related videos, one for each channel, both linking to the other.
Collaboration is significantly stronger than a shoutout, since the exposure is longer-term and reaches almost everyone who views both channels. In addition, the audience crossover isn’t one way- both audiences/channels can benefit from this one.
Critiques aren’t shoutouts or collaborations, but they do give you an experienced creator’s perspective on your work. Having an experienced creator criticize you will allow you to assess what’s wrong with your videos, where you can improve and how.
For Production Assistance
There’s lots of ways you can get help with your video production. You may not come to YouTube knowing how to do everything, so having experienced graphical artists or sound designers might help you get a tighter look for your channel.
For Channel Art
Yet again, the content you’re doing on YouTube may not mean you’re the best artist. When it comes to things like your avatar or your YouTube channel art, sometimes it’s best to hire an expert to do the work for you. There’s no point in getting a YouTube promotion if your channel doesn’t look presentable.

The Grin Platform offers access to all of these forms of YouTube promotion, in addition to a few more. To use the Platform, just click here and start browsing. You can use filters that sort by price, the service you’re looking for, the subscriber count of the person offering the service, etc.
How This Helps You Grow
Collaborations and shoutouts will expand your audience significantly, but getting your name out there doesn’t matter if your channel doesn’t have the appearance and the content that justifies people subscribing and becoming repeat viewers.
