1. Create Interesting Looking Playlists

Creating playlists are essential to increasing views.
We’re conditioned into creating favourites and playlists (supported by Spotify and Netflix amongst others).
So it helps to go one step further to make each of your playlists REALLY stand out.

Tips:

  • Alternate the design template to make each playlist individually stand out
  • Add a short text to the playlist image (which matches close to the title of the playlist)
  • Alternate between horizontal and vertical layouts (using YouTube’s Customize Channel) to maintain people’s interest and curiosity

2. Fully Optimize Your Description

Your video description is a key part of your YouTube SEO and getting your videos found. It also gives your audience a preview of what your video is all about.

Description Optimization Tips:

  • Write something compelling
  • Use 2-3 sentences in the introduction, but remember only the first few lines will show up (before people have to click Show More)
  • Use keywords in the introduction which best match your video, but don’t overdo them, since this will have a negative effect
  • Write 150+ words in the detail section (what will people learn, a background of how this video is relevant) so YouTube and Google can fully understand your content
  • Add your website links
  • Use YTubeBooster to add your social media Channels
  • Use YTubeBooster to add links to your other popular YouTube videos
  • Add a call-to-action to subscribe to your YouTube channel
