YouTube Academy - How do I grow my channel?

As a creator, how can you make your videos stand out and keep your viewers watching? Here are some things to keep in mind that may help your videos succeed on YouTube.

To make your videos easier to find and more enticing for viewers to click into try creating attractive and accurate thumbnails, titles, and descriptions.

The information you give in your thumbnail, title, and description will not only help YouTube systems recommend your videos but will also give viewers a sense of what your video is about and why they should watch it.

Make sure you follow YouTube's Community Guidelines when adding these pieces of information.

If you want to take your videos to the next level try using cards and end screens.

These features will help you drive more watch time and engagement on your channel.

Cards show up in the top right-hand corner of your video and lets you lead viewers to more of your content.

End screens show up at the end of your video, and let you lead viewers to more videos, playlists, or let them subscribe.

Both of these features can be added during the upload process.

Once you have multiple videos on your channel you can also use playlists and channel sections.

Playlists allow you to group together multiple videos so that your viewers can watch them all in a row.

This can help boost your channel's watch time which is an important metric on YouTube.

You can group your videos by topic, format, or whatever you want.

Once you have playlists, you can add them as sections on your channel homepage.

Sections allow you to customize the layout of your channel homepage.

They're made up of videos and playlists.

They help you organize and showcase what you create for anyone who visits your channel.

You can add sections by going to the customization page in YouTube Studio.

Remember, the content you create is the most important piece for how to be successful on YouTube.

Don't worry about being perfect.

Just start making videos about things you love.

Your viewers await.
