Something that a lot of people notice but leave out when it’s time to count YouTube metrics is comments. Actually, It’s something a lot of people forget when it comes to any social network.
However according to a study by Gideon Shalwick, only the top 4% of viewers will actually comment. So that means if you have 1,000 views, you should have around 40 comments if everything you’ve done has been average.
But there are many ways to increase your comment:view ratio and in turn, get a higher vantage point in the battlefield of YouTube success
People love getting deals. And a lot of times, people fail to recognise that they don’t need to offer elaborate gifts to increase incentive. A simple disclaimer for fast replies will do, however incentive does get higher the simpler the process is and the bigger the prize.

A basic mind trick is that people are more driven when a group they’re in has common goals. It helps others, it makes them look good, and community goals are just simply more exciting. So what do we do with this information?
Now like with all tricks, you can’t do it too much, or it’ll just lose its magic. You’ll just be known as that guy that does strategy A all the time.
