By now, I’m sure you realize the importance of YouTube for promoting and marketing your music.

Videos have been taking over everything. In today’s world, most people would much rather watch a video than read a blog.

The same goes for your music. People love seeing visuals to go along with your song. And creating a music video for your fans can be the one thing which catches on and goes viral, skyrocketing your music career to levels previously unseen.

But one big problem that many of you run into is video promotion and marketing.

We’ve all been there….You spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to buy beats, studio time for recording, and an amazing music video to go with your new single. Only to find out that you have gotten 10 views in the past 2 months.

With little or no budget left, you are stuck. How can you possibly afford to pay a handful of cash to a third party to promote your music video when you’ve just spent thousands on creating it?

There is now good news for anyone looking to promote their video and reach new fans on YouTube. It is called Fan Finder, and it was created by YouTube’s “Creators” team.


All you need to do is create a video ad for your channel, submit it to YouTube’s Fan Finder, and let them do the rest. This surely beats having to fork over your hard-earned cash to some risky third-party promotion company.

YouTube will do the rest, placing your ad in spots relevant to your niche so that new prospective fans will see it. It is a great way to get visibility in places which would otherwise be costly.

According to YouTube, there are a few key things to keep in mind when creating your channel ad. Check out the tips below.


Getting The Most Out Of Your YouTube Video Ad


Keep Your YouTube Video Ad Short, But Interesting and Engaging

You have a short window in which to reach your viewer’s attention. Keep your video concise and focused, and get to the point quickly. Preferably within the first 5 seconds.

Make The Video Ad Entertaining and Relevant

If you have a music channel, include your music in the video. If you are a comedian, make it funny. Stick to your niche, and create a video ad that is entertaining. Aim to make your video relevant for a long time, so avoid any time-sensitive material.

Invoke A Strong/Powerful Message

Don’t forget to create a strong call to action for the viewer to subscribe to your channel. Give them a reason to want to see more. This may be the only opportunity you have to win them over.

So what are you waiting for? Get to work on a captivating YouTube video ad, head on over to https://www.youtube.com/yt/fanfinder/ and submit it to YouTube for some free advertising!
