Sometimes even updating your video thumbnail to make it more relevant to the topic will give it a new look and encourage more views.
Regularly Produce Videos
If your brand is consistently gaining more exposure from your latest videos, your new videos may bump people back to your old videos, suggesting your other content as something they may be interested in. It is important to renew your content and revamp old ideas for your brand to continue to gain exposure and provide value to your followers.

You can also refer to older videos in your latest videos to encourage your audience to view your other content. Create annotations that pop up on your new videos that will link to your previous content or include the link in the description box to drive traffic.
Use Social Media
