YouTube’s subscribers can make you feel as if you are not doing enough for your channel, especially if the numbers are stagnating. At times, you might be tempted to fake numbers by paying someone to get you fake subscribers. These are accounts that subscribe to your channel but never watch your posts.
There are a lot of negative effects as this action is taken by anyone. We will highlight them in this article and give you tips on how to grow your YouTube channel naturally. A channel also needs patience and consistency, so if you are just getting started, buckle up, long journey ahead.
Why you shouldn’t buy fake subscribers:
Your account might get suspended
This is violating the YouTube policies, and you might end up losing your channel. YouTube’s algorithms frequently monitor accounts activities, hence making it easy to notice fraud activities.
Waste of money
If you purchase YouTube subscribers and your account ends up suspended, or it doesn’t appear on any of the searches, it is a waste of time and resources. Avoid misusing your money and instead use the money to make a vlog that will grow your subscribers naturally.
Your rate of views remains low
If you buy subscribers, and they do not watch your content, which they are most likely not to, your number of views per video will remain low. Imagine having 10,000 subscribers and having 2 views for every video you post. Algorithms will catch up with you and your account will be suspended.
Lowers your image
The main purpose of buying subscribers is to probably show others you are working hard, and your account is growing tremendously. If your friends notice you bought subscribers, they will make fun of you and this might end up lowering your self-esteem
Alternative to buying fake YouTube subscribers:
Collaborate with other YouTubers
This will help you be well known, exchange ideas, and have a fun time making videos together. It is as easy as writing an email to someone you’d like to collaborate with stating the purpose of your channel and your availability.
Advertise your channel
Encourage people to subscribe to your channel from other platforms such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, or Twitter. Your friends and followers on these channels will support you by subscribing to your channel and viewing your content. Every time you upload a new video, take the extra step of sharing a link or a snippet of your video.
Encourage viewers to subscribe
At the beginning of the vlog, remind your subscribers to subscribe to your channel. Ask them to go the mile extra and share a comment or like your videos. This way, YouTube algorithms will recommend your videos to new people who have not watched your content initially.
Post interesting content
Always go out of your way to ensure you put in maximum effort to the growth of your channel. Visit places and vlog or do new activities with your friends, try out a new recipe or give a tour of your house.
