  • This is all good info, but if nobody watches your video, you're in the same spot... There is an actual science to increasing views. Yes you can buy views and buy real people or marketing to create those views....

    I am an online marketer and there are ONLY 2 COMPANIES that actually work and produce real views. I've had over 10 accounts banned because most companies use robots and YouTube does not allow that. The companies that my team has used to gain results through social media are as follows:

    #1) EnterPrice Solutions - (www.EnterPriceSolutions.com) Quick, Relatively cheap American SEO company....

    #2) But much more expensive is - (Virool) But they have a REALLY GOOD video team too if you need to make videos - But prices start at $5000 (not $10)

    #3 Japanese company - BigviralGenius. They delivered what they promised.

    I suggest not trying any other Services to buy YouTube views, I won't name them here, but again, I've had a DOZEN accounts banned because they do not produce real views, I think they just have a real person pressing the go butting on a robot.
