    Hello,

    Please forgive my "uneducatedness"

    I am literally a total noob to youtube marketing. I am promoting an affiliate product and have a site for this product.

    I'm looking to begin "successfully" promoting my site via youtube videos. I have uploaded almost 30 videos, used what I consider eye catching and keyword targeted titles, descriptions, and used the same keywords I'm using for the SEO on my site plus some other somewhat relevant keywords with high search volumes.

    I am not seeing much activity at all with ANY of my videos. Getting minimal views to the videos (roughly 5-50 in a month)

    I'm not seeing hardly any positive outcome so far so I'm unsure what I should do next. I downloaded viewet and began using that last night to get a couple hundred views per video to see what that does but I'm stuck.

    It may be a matter of ordering a view,like,comment service? Just at this time I
    can't justify spending much money on a service like this without seeing SOMEWHAT of an outcome.

    Just looking for some ideas from the pros!

    Youtube is a numbers game. You can't expect much with only 30 videos. It also depends what niche you are in as if peoples are not searching relevant things on youtube then outcome will be zero. The best you can do is search for competitors on youtube for the same niche/keywords (if there are any) and try to find how they are doing it.

    Hope it helps.

    It's a pretty specific product in the music niche so there are pretty targeted searches. I think it would be a great niche to execute video marketing with. I was trying to avoid a super spammy approach.

    Should I take the 30 videos I have on my current account and upload them to another account and rinse and repeat?

    ^ yes you should do this but before uploading them make sure you make them unique than your previous upload else youtube will detect these videos and delete.

    Are your niches hot? Do people want them? A lot of my videos get 50+ a day anyways. A great video I have up gets 1k a day and is earning quite a bit.

    I think people tend to think that paid traffic or view exchange sites are 100% about the traffic and that's all..i guess it is kinda..but some people like me..actually window shop. By that i mean i've found myself actually watching some of the videos from the exchange site and liking them to the point that i would view other videos of theirs or even sub and comment...the same applies to ptc sites, i've actually signed up for some sites that i've discovered through ptc sites. I guess what i'm saying is view exchanges and ptc sites are not just about the numbers..there are actually real people on the other end...so to me it is one of the best forms of advertisement..just my opinion
