YouTube video scheduling and management — tips, tricks and best practices
Have a clear structure for your videos.
It will make videos easier for you to write and for the audience to understand.
Main keywords should always be included in the title and description of the video.
YouTube is a highly SEO-centric platform, so optimizing your videos properly can give you the competitive edge you need.
Don’t obsess over subscribers and views.
These can certainly help but watch time and audience retention are the ranking factors that will make the algorithm push your videos. Focus on those.
Don’t underestimate the power of tags.
A good set of hashtags can mean the difference between a video getting 2 views and it getting traction during a certain topical event.
Network as much as possible with other creators.
YouTube collabs are an effective way to get the word out about your channel.
Include CTAs at the start and end of your videos.
As weird as it may sound, some people just forget to like and subscribe, even if they’ve enjoyed the video. Adding CTAs is a good way to mitigate that risk.
Make titles as descriptive and concise as possible.
It’s a delicate balance, and it can only be achieved through practice. Titles can be changed, so don’t be afraid to experiment.
Make catchy thumbnails.
CTR (clickthrough rate) is a vital ranking metric, and having clickable thumbnails is one of the best ways to increase it.
Target communities in your niche.
But don’t just dump your link and call it a day. Try to become a part of those communities before plugging your channel.
Brand your channel.
Establish a clear aesthetic for your channel — this includes colors, fonts, art. This can help you stand out from the crowd.
