Losing audience is easy when you have irregularity or inconsistency in giving content to the audience. Keep on generating interesting content as well as long-term strategies to hold audience interest. To keep engaging new viewers and followers is also a challenging task. You have to accomplish it successfully along with the content production.

The placement of the annotation is all that makes the difference, it can surely boost up subscribers if added appropriately.
6. Use AdWords for advertisement
In case, you qualify to enable monetization on your channel, you are eligible to use the ‘pre-roll ad’, i.e. before the video. The second one is a ‘banner ad’ which is displayed when you are browsing on a search engine. And the last one is, ‘promoted video’, these ads appear when you are searching for a specific topic on YouTube. All these forms of ads are effective in getting more audience to your content.
