Promote and cross promote these content through different social networks where you already have a strong following. This would also provide you with an opportunity of making your followers follow you on other social websites. For e.g. you can share a link of your video present on your youtube channel on either FB or twitter which would not only invite more traffic/followers on your page but at the same time increases the chance of sharing it.
