Should I pay to promote my YouTube channel?
This is a great question. It depends on if you have an advertising budget. One idea is to use free promotional tactics to promote a new YouTube channel. If and when it starts to earn revenue, use some of that to purchase paid advertisements to promote the channel. This can be very helpful in growing subscribers and getting more views to videos. Paid advertisements can be purchased directly from YouTube that allow you to promote your channel on the platform itself.
Alternatively, if you know you have very useful content, starting with an advertising budget and investing in a new channel right away can help it reach YouTube's monetization goals for earning money on their platform.
