YouTube has humbled me - 6 lessons learned

Uncategorized May 03, 2019

Whew! It's been a while since I've been humbled like this. 

I've felt anxiety, fear of failure, angst and ultimately humility these past few weeks. 

Here's the GOOD NEWS! I'm learning a new skill and learning a lot:

  1. It's the watch time NOT the # of views that matter to YouTube's algorithm.
  2. Key is to create engaging content (Entertainment, educational, ideally both!)
    • I need to add more energy, cutscenes, broll, camera zooms to keep attention.
    • Also, need to create more content that users are searching for.
  3. Video should "Hook" get to the point, followed by the middle and end.
  4. Good thumbnails = good click through
  5. Good content = watch through
  6. Great content = "suggested" by the YouTube algorithms = hyper growth

Either way, I'm having a blast working with my friends and helping people. Instead of emailing every new post I figured I'd do a monthly recap. If you like/don't like a video pls feel free to let me know...always open to constructive criticism.
