Recently, I made a Big Update on my YouTube Channel. But now I updated to 2.1, can you guess what are the differences between 2.0 and 2.1?
First, I made my Big YouTube Channel Promotion Card
I made my Big YouTube Channel Promotion Card to Promote my YouTube Channel in Adobe Photoshop and printed on an A4 paper on Dec. 25th, 2018.
I think when people see this card, they will take out their phone and scan the QR Code immediately.
I usually put the Big YouTube Channel Promotion card on the desktop beside my laptop when I am in the cafe, restaurant, or I am resting in a place that has tables, especially I meet foreigners in China. When someone comes to my home, I will show it on my home TV.
In the Big YouTube Channel Promotion Card, it has a sentence with a red background ‘Please Subscribe my YouTube Channel!’, a red sentence ‘Can you Subscribe my YouTube Channel to get my videos? I am a YouTuber!’, a QR Code of my YouTube Channel, my social media username, my website and my channel name.
This also can let people meet YouTubers in the real world.
The Big Card is Not Useful
On Jan. 20th, 2019, I traveled to Yunnan, China. I put this card besides my laptop while I am making my 1st-day traveling video in a restaurant at Baiyun Airport, Guangzhou, China when I am eating breakfast and I met some foreigners beside me, it was still not useful.
Then, I made a small one
I am currently writing a novel book, called: YouTuber Meets the Subscribers. In Chapter 2, I am going to make and put the Big YouTube Channel Promotion Card, but the book is too small to put. So I made a small one and put it in my novel book. The chapter says the YouTuber made a YouTube Channel Promotion Card and handed out to her classmates in her school.
On Feb. 16th, 2019, I found inspiration from my novel book because the YouTuber handed out her cards. I think the card is not useful and it is too big to carry and people cannot take it away to type the links or scan the QR Code conveniently. I made a small one, printed in an A4 paper and use scissors to cut it to 8 pieces, it can save paper.
In the small card, it has a sentence with a red background ‘Please Subscribe my YouTube Channel!’, a description ‘I am a Chinese Junior High Student YouTuber. New Videos Every Week’, a QR Code of my YouTube Channel Link, my Channel name, an instruction ‘Please Scan the QR Code above to Subscribe(it is the picture of the Subscribe Button)’, and my website https://kendeng1603.wordpress.com/ in the front side, and my social media and email address in the backside.
The big one still can be used because people need to know I am a YouTuber from the big card first, then you can take my small card.
I am going to hand out it to let people subscribe to my YouTube Channel.
First, I am trying to hand out my cards to the foreign teachers in my school and in my extra classes. Then I try to hand out them to foreigners around Guangzhou, China at the weekend because I live in Guangzhou, China.
The steps I am using the Small Promotion Card
- Take the cards, make sure I have enough cards.
- Go out of my home.
- Hand out the cards to other people, especially foreigners in China.
How do I hand out to others?
- Say ‘Hey! Excuse me!’ and then hand out the card.
- When they see my big card, I will hand out the small card.
When I successfully handed out the cards and promoted my YouTube Channel, I will make a video about this and upload to YouTube and it will be shown here.
Someone may ask some questions when I am handing out my cards, the common questions and answers will be shown here:
Q: What are you doing?
A: I am a YouTuber, I am going to get more subscribers. Can you subscribe my YouTube Channel?
Q: What is this/that?
A: I am a YouTuber, this is my YouTube Channel Card. Can you subscribe my YouTube Channel?
Q: I don’t have a QR Code Scanner on my phone/I can’t scan QR Codes, how to subscribe your (YouTube) Channel?
A: You just need to go to my website and click the YouTube icon on the top of my website, or you can search my channel name on YouTube.
Q: What is your name/channel name?
A: My name is Ken, my channel name is my full name, you can see it on the card.
Q: Why you started your YouTube Channel?
A: I just want to practice my English speaking ability and pronunciations. I am a Chinese Junior High Student YouTuber.
Note: I may use ‘I am a YouTuber.’ as the answer prefix to let them pay attention to my YouTube Channel Promotion Card.
I also use my Channel Promoting Background on my devices to promote my YouTube Channel
I also made my Channel Promoting Background that modified from my YouTube Channel Art and I have set it as my desktop background on my devices to promote my YouTube Channel.
It has a red sentence below: I am a YouTuber, Please Subscribe (Subscribe Button) to my YouTube Channel!
My Channel Promoting Background on my PC/Laptop:
- Handing out this card or any other printed matters in Guangzhou Metro is not allowed.
A tutorial from another YouTuber
After I made my small cards, I watched other YouTuber’s video about how they made an excellent YouTube Channel Promotion Card and handed out. I thought this method before I watch this video or any other tutorials.
She wants to save paper, so her cards were very small, but the size of my cards are bigger than hers. The size of my one card is 2 cards of hers before cutting.
I wrote a comment on it and subscribed their channel.
