In this blog post I want to show you 7 YouTube Tricks that you need to know in case you are doing video marketing. Video is really great and works quite well. Don’t be afraid to start with it. It’s not as difficult as you think! Just go ahead and do it, you don’t have to be perfect.
The first videos might be strange for you, but you will get used to it. In the below video I won’t tell you what you have to do to create your first videos, I will show you some nice features and settings you should do and use in your YouTube account.
Here is what you will learn in the video:
Some settings you should do in your YouTube profile, how to add links to social media and your blog, how to upload a profile picture and a channel art
Some functions, mainly how to activate a featured video and how it works
Info and Settings
What you should add to your videos, like title, description, tags, playlist and using keywords
How to use some enhancements like auto fix, contrast, slow motion, trim function (cut out some parts of a video), filters and special effects
How you can add audio to your videos
How to add clickable links, bubbles and notes. What you need an associated website for and how you can activate this function
How you can add subtitles to your video (I have never used this function)
Be aware that there is a completely new feature called cards. Cards allow you to add a new layer of interactivity to your videos. They are applied on a per video basis and are rendered on desktop and mobile devices. You can provide a destination URL from a list of eligible sites and, depending on the card type, customize an image, title, and call-to-action text.
Now go and watch the video below to get the details about the 7 tricks I listed above.
By the way, don’t be surprised when I welcome you to day 10 in the video. This video was part of a 90 day video challenge I participated last year. But I thought the content might be interesting anyway…
I hope you could learn something and use it for your video marketing. If you liked this post, please like, share and comment it below.
