When to Stop Investing When it Comes to Ranking Videos?

By April


During Episode 64 of Hump Day Hangout, someone asked about when to stop putting money in different optimization efforts for a video that has not been ranking.

The exact question was:

Does there come a time where you stop throwing good money after bad at videos that are still ranking on page 2 and 3? I have customers that are paying me $300 per month to rank videos and have done everything from optimizing videos, using silos as taught, setup a branded Tier 1 and 3 Tier 2 IFTTT networks around the channel, tried SAPE links with one (actually decreased rankings), purchased multiple contextual link packages pointing the Tier 1 IFTTT branded network, retweets, reblogs, video ads (in stream & in display), commented on high authority related videos with links back to playlist, etc. etc. Between the time and $$ being spent, I am losing and just wanted to know if there is a time to throw in the towel or is there still hope??
