Here's a neat little trick I figured out that helps you get quite a few more natural views on your music niche videos on youtube by increasing the click through rate when your video appears as a suggested video or in search results. On YouTube, nearly all artists signed to a major record label have their videos uploaded by VEVO. Nearly all of those who aren't, don't. Major label videos and songs are generally of a much higher standard than those are not, therefore people are much more inclined to click on VEVO links as they know it will be quality. Recently, VEVO have started putting a VEVO watermark in the corner of their videos. When watching music videos, the related videos with a VEVO watermark are going to get a much higher CTR. Take a look at the image below - the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th are much more enticing for music fans to click on. What we're going to do is simply put the VEVO watermark in the corner of our videos in the music niche and much more people will start clicking on them! So far, I have not had any takedowns, bans etc. Here's a watermark I made which is the correct size so all you have to do is open it in your favourite photo editing software and put your thumbnail as a layer behind it and upload it to YT!

This isn't going to blow your views through the roof from nothing as obviously you already have to be appearing in the search results and related videos for it to work but it should be a very nice supplement to what you're already getting! Hope this helps and let us know how it goes.
