How to Be a YouTuber (Part 1): Useful Resources

In order to be successful on YouTube you need to understand that YouTube is a search engine just like Google, so your content needs to be designed with this in mind.

  • It is relevant and easy to find:
    1. How relevant is the title and keywords?
    2. How recent it is?
  • Quality
    1. How long do people watch your video for?
    2. How many people watch your video?
  • Consistency
    1. Do you post in a predictable and regular way?
  • Speed
    1. Can you create your content quickly and efficiently.

 

In this workshop we will be looking at relevancy and a little bit of quality.

  • Part 1 – Using TubeBuddy to create content that ranks.
  • Part 2 – Using Snappa to create channel art.

 

We recommend Tube Buddy to assess keywords but there are other tools we use as well.

We’ll be using Snappa to design channel art.
