Learning how to make videos is just one of the many skills you will have to perfect in order to grow your channel especially for those who are new on YouTube.

If you are starting your channel may seem near impossible to reach the top but you can definitely do it if you are prepared with the right knowledge.

Focus on the quality of your videos

When you are just starting off your YouTube channel, you may be tempted to fill it with video content no matter what it is.  While it’s great to have plenty of content available for interested viewers, you also don’t want to sacrifice quality for quantity.

Don’t waste too much time on the introduction

The amount of time viewers spend watching a video or on your channel, in general, can affect how well your channel performs and can also give you a boost in the YouTube algorithm.

Because of this, it’s important that you use your time wisely. Have an intro is ideal but do your best to keep your intro short and to the point.

Optimize your videos to get more views

YouTube is a search engine with video results so its recommended that you treat your videos like you would blog posts. This means doing plenty of keyword research to optimize your videos and ensure they come up with relevant searches and get plenty of views. Using a keyword planning tool can help you discover what terms people are searching for most so that you can make content that people will be interested in.

Stand out with eye-catching thumbnail

If you haven’t been putting much thought into your thumbnail images, you may be missing out on some important views. Instead of using a screenshot from your video or one of the images suggested on YouTube, make designing a YouTube thumbnail part of your regular process.

Use end cards to increase views

As their name suggests, YouTube end cards are what shows up at the end of a video. Not all videos include them because they are not required, but it’s a great idea to make them a part of all videos. End cards can last anywhere from 5 to 20 seconds and they give you a chance to share all types of links with the viewers.

Use social media to promote your videos

As a new YouTuber, chances are you are eager to get more views and subscribers. But how are people supposed to know about your channel and new content if you don’t share it? To reach a wider audience and to increase your viewer, don’t just rely on YouTube’s algorithm to get viewers. Take matters into your own hands and promote your videos through different.

Create a brand using YouTube art

To make your channel look more professional, establish a brand around it that is easy to recognize. If you already have a website related to your YouTube channel, make your channel art match with your blog so that your brand is instantly recognizable across all your platforms.
