All views are real, how do I check?
This is very simple, you just have to check in your Youtube Studio how many viewing hours you have before the promo and how many you have generated after the promo, there are also users who will like or dislike if they like it or not.
How long does it take to start the promotion?
The stipulated time for your promotion to be scheduled and you begin to see changes is 24 to 72 business hours, which means that it could take a little longer if you place the order on the weekend.
