6. Vid IQ
VidIQ is often seen as Tubebuddy’s competitor, but it is a little bit different. While Tubebuddy provides a lot of tools to help promote your channel and track your growth, VidIQ’s strong points are the deep analytics it provides. Personally, I think VidIQ can be helpful for bigger channels or channels that upload consistently and have more than 5,000 subscribers. Of course, any channel can use VidIQ, but the more consistent you upload, the more data you will have to get a bigger picture of where your channel is and where it is going. VidIQ also has a strong YouTube Channel that frequently does channel reviews and provides a deeper explanation of their analytics tools. VidIQ has a Google Chrome app, a free version and paid versions. Check out VidIQ here!
7. Morning Fame
This tool is similar to TubeBuddy and VidIQ but touts itself as simplifying your YouTube Growth. The MorningFame layout is simple and easy to understand quickly. The website organization immediately points out what is working for your channel and what is not! You can easily see what content to double up on and create more of. They have a free one month trial, however, after that, it is a paid-only tool. Also, you must have an invite code to use this tool.
