In the last article, I gave you a detailed strategy on how you can promote your YouTube Channel on Instagram, today, we talk about Facebook.
Firstly, to promote your YouTube Channel on Facebook, you need to create a Facebook page.
This enables you to track clicks, views and engagements on your posts as well as create ads to promote your content.
If you don’t know how to create a Facebook page, this article will help you to do so.
Ways to Promote your YouTube Channel on Facebook
Below, you’ll get the strategies you will use to promote your YouTube Channel on Facebook
- Facebook Stories
- Facebook Groups
- Paid Ads
The Stories feature on Facebook is designed to reach more people than the traditional Facebook feature, even Facebook says so.
Once you’ve created a Facebook page for your profile, complete your profile and start making posts.
At first, you can first invite all your Facebook friends to like your page, so you’ll have an initial audience.
Download the Canva App on your phone, log in and search for ‘Facebook Story’.
This will pullup templates for you to use and create your Facebook Story, you can also start from scratch with the ‘blank template’ option.
After you’ve designed your Facebook story, head back to your Facebook page and upload it.
Now, for those that have the New Page Experience feature rolled out to them, this strategy works best.
While Uploading your story, you have an option to add a destination link – you should then point the link to the YouTube video or Channel you designed the story for.
If the New Page Experience has not been rolled out to you, you can use the traditional link sticker to add links to your Story.
This a new feature from Facebook. I’ve seen pages with just reels as their only content and they’re reaching millions of Facebook users.
Facebook is working hard to have users spend more time on it more than they do on TikTok, Vskit and other video sharing social media.
If you’re using mobile, watch a reels video and see.
That is why they push reels to reach millions of users.
You have to take advantage of this feature by creating a vertical teaser video of your uploaded YouTube video.
Make Sure to show your YouTube Channel name on the video, possibly adding it in the description on of the reels video.
This way, you’re boosting your Channels visibility and you’ll get more targeted Facebook followers.
You can use Facebook groups to gain more traction for your Facebook Page and get more Subscribers on your YouTube Channel.
To Implement this strategy, you can make a link post on your Fb page and then share the post to 20 or 30 relevant groups.
The link should point to your YouTube Channel or a video on your Channel.
Yh, it’s too much and you shouldn’t spam this to avoid bans on Facebook.
Do this for one link post everybody, i.e. share to five different groups everyday for a week.
At the end of the week, you must have shared the post 35 times to 35 different groups, this increases the reach of your post.
More reach is equal to more engagement, more engagement is equal to more clicks to your YouTube Channel or video.
This is the best way to get more subscribers and views for your YouTube Channel, just create a link post, then boost.
You’ll have to pay Facebook to boost your posts, though it’s cheap.
If you’re able to perfect your target audience, you’ll get more conversions and high ROI.
You can boost a post on Facebook with just $3, this gets you more clicks to your YouTube Channel as well as more Facebook followers.
Note that the more followers you have on Facebook, the lesser you’ll pay for ads.
Most pages who have millions of followers no longer use ads, as they reach hundreds of thousands of people.
