Water them right out of the gate.
Produce content that focuses on really appealing to a sub niche.
Double down on winners. Drop losing ideas that don't pick up fast.
Grinding sucks.

The second they get posted drop back-links from happening pages.
Live chats, subreddits, high traffic niche pages are my goto.
Slack and Discord won't push huge numbers, but you can pre engage people and give them reasons to behave in a manner that looks good for you from a time series perspective.
Don't water your losers, it DOES NOT WORK and is a waste of traffic.
You won't make them recover. EVER


If your video doesn't blow up within the first month try again with a totally new cut and possibly account.
You can sorta force stuff to grow using expert tricks, but its a huge waste of money.
Doing all the expert tricks is a waste of time.
Youtubes even more obnoxious then google search.
Google sits around and try's to figure out whats going to be huge and then dumps gas on the fire.
If you're not on the fast track find a way to get on it.
Don't sit their and try to grind it out.
You'll die in your moms basement.

Running cheap ads within Youtube to your video can help get the views and watch time you need (and get over the 1,000 subscriber and 4,000 hours of watch time needed to monetize).

Ranking videos on YouTube is similar to ranking websites/blog posts in Google in terms of the on-page SEO side of things.. The main difference with ranking videos on YouTube as opposed to websites/blog posts on Google is the factors that determine where a video ranks.

On YouTube, the main ranking factors are all the on-page SEO things (title, description, tags) and then average view duration (audience retention), watch time minutes, subscriptions driven (did people subscribe to the uploader when watching the video), audience engagements (comments), and then off-page factors like social shares, embeds, etc. The argument that click-through rate (CTR %) is a ranking factor could also be made because if nobody clicks on a video then the video cannot accumulate watch time, etc. Along with this, YouTube is increasingly valuing the closed captions (CC) of videos to determine the subject matter of videos, so adding these wouldn't be a bad idea either.

Yes, you can accumulate views by paying for cheap ads to your video(s), but you do need to be careful that you don't destroy the average view duration (audience retention) of the video by having people watch 1 minute of the video and then clicking off the video.
