For example, to help with a launch or to jump start engagement with your channel.
I have been able to buy views via Google Adwords.
Google Adwords provides several options on how you can pay for ads and what you can track, with one of them being views. This is usually designed for brand awareness purposes and you need to have a channel and video set up for any video advertising to work.
If you need more help with Google Adwords or have any follow-up questions, feel free to call or message me.
I would never recommend purchasing views. Rather, use the quality content you're creating and share on other social channels. Then, to create more interest, run some ads on social channels along with Google and Bing to drive traffic back to your YouTube channel.
AdWords is where you manage your paid advertising for Youtube. If you are looking for a brand awareness campaign and users to visit your site, the strategy will depend on your type of business, product/service, budget and so on. So if you would like to share more information maybe we can help you more. Good luck!
Instead of purchasing views, think creatively about your brand and content. Then reach out to folks you look up to, both on YouTube and not, and share your mission transparently. By doing that, you will have word of mouth traction from the get-go... provided your story is great. We aren't impressed by high views anymore. But we are impressed by truth and stories. Good luck!
I agree with the answers that most give and stay away from purchased views. Especially if it's just to get the numbers up. I'd focus on creating great content.
It's a different story if you have something to sell. Then Adwords, Facebook Ads or similar will be helpful.
High view counts, subscribers or similar don't matter. They are just numbers. They can be impressive. But real customers or viewers are so much more valuable.
