Optimize Your Description Box with Key Words
Boost your video discoverability by turning your description box into a keyword goldmine. Include phrases like "Kat Von D Saint and Sinner palette review," "iPhone 8 battery hacks," or "How to throw an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party." These keywords help your videos pop up for users searching those specific topics, driving more eyes to your content and clicks on your links.
Analyze Demographics and Understand Your Audience
Don't play guessing games – leverage YouTube Analytics to uncover the demographics of your audience. Analyze the average ages, genders, and watch times of your viewers. Take it a step further with SocialBlade, to compare stats to others in your niche.
Strategic Editing: Add Title Cards Throughout Your Video
Before posting, populate your video with title card links leading to related videos, products, and stores. These clickable elements create opportunities for impulse clicks, turning casual viewers into satisfied shoppers.
Seal the Deal With a Call to Action
Adding links to your content can only go so far if you don't educatte your audience on where to find them. Begin and end each video by prompting viewers to explore your description box. A simple call to action like, "Find everything I used in this video linked below," can significantly increase click-through rates.
