Talking to your viewers should feel like talking to your closest friends. They can come to you for a good laugh or a great story, and you can go to them for support. However, in order to build that kind of relationship with your viewers, you need to engage with them.
Here are three easy ways to engage your viewers.
1. Host a livestream on YouNow.
Many YouTube stars use livestreams to connect with their viewers in real time. They share stories, answer questions, perform music, and just hang out. YouTube even has its own livestream app, YouNow.
JennXPenn recently started doing livestreams for her viewers. She records the broadcast for subscribers who don’t have the time to tune in.
2. Do a fan shoutout in every video.
Give your viewer a reason to interact with you on social media by shouting out an extremely active fan at the end of every video. Encourage them to like, retweet, and share all of your social media posts so that they can become a part of your next video. As a bonus, this will also help increase your social media presence.
The Gabbie Show highlights a “Showstopper of the Week” in each and every video.
3. Follow them back on social media.
Not every viewer can be your fan of the week, but you can make their day by following them back on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat. You can easily interact with your fans online by replying to their tweets, opening their snaps, and liking their fan art.
