    Hey,

    I'm starting a YouTube channel, I have grown channels before though. I'm feeling kind of lazy, and I've got a decent budget. Would there be any way to grow more easily even if it takes some money? I'm thinking Twitter ads with related channels as a target. What else can I do? Thanks!

    Don't buy any services promising subscribers, followers on any social channel etc. It's all bots or worthless networks.

    Promote your channel on other social channels, pay established channels in your niche for mentions, sponsor videos via Facebook & Youtube itself, maybe even Twitter

    Yeah, obviously I would never use such services. I'm talking about paid advertising.

    FB is good due it's granular targeting and pretty much no minimum spend per boosted post. If you've got serious money check out stuff like OutBrain which will get you listed in more premium locations

    I have used Facebook advertising and Google adwords in the past. They are useless when it comes to promoting YT channel. You will most probably waste your money.
    Try to find ways to trend your videos. I know many channels with millions of subs and hitting million on every video
    How did they do it? They just bought views from a reliable seller.
    If you want to go the right way in terms of promoting your channel then it is going to take years for your channel to get big or it may never become big.

    It's a music channel. So everything is about promotion. Content is the same as everyone else, but I try to be unique.

    Adwords is definitely a retarded choice for advertising a youtube channel. FB should work pretty well, sponsor posts with your videos to those with relevant interests, don't use their sidebar ads.
