    Hey everyone,

    I have a YouTube channel that already has generated $40 dollars over the course of a year. I haven't put to much effort in the channel but I'm planning to work on it real hard on the next coming months.

    What are some good methods to get more traffic to my channel?

    Also,
    Does anyone knows good methods on monetizing my YouTube channel?

    Thanks,

    Find forums and post your videos to related content, or you can also post on facebook and ask others to share to get traffic there.

    Some of the big YouTubers who have made money off of it are deeply engaged in social media.

    At the most, you could use a Twitter profile and use that to engage with your fans.

    Depending on how much you have, try making a giveaway video. People love free shit, so tell your viewers that and then watch them earn more trust into your brand.

    Hope this helps!

    I tried promoting my videos with youtube ads and got 3 subscribers for 5$
    If you have budget,go for it
    Other than that,post on FB and other social medias,reddit and forums,but usually it's very hard to grow the channel this way.

    You've answered your own question. Put my effort into it by:

    1) Creating better content
    2) Thinking of clickbait titles and put interesting thumbnails
    3) Make videos around trending topics like the various challenges

    This is will be far more effective than promoting (spamming) yourself on forums.

    If you have good financial background you can promote with YT ads. After sometime you will easily get natural views.
