See what keeps your audience's attention - YouTube

From www.youtube.com

Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com:

"Understanding how audiences interact with your content can help uncover valuable patterns and empower you to create more engaging content. Videos that don’t retain an audience are far less likely to be displayed prominently in Search and suggested placements on YouTube, so it is important to make content that keeps people engaged and watching as much as possible. Do you know why audiences watch certain videos to the end, while abandoning others within the first few seconds? Use YouTube Analytics to help you determine which videos your viewers like best, how they interact with that content, and what you can do to encourage them to stick around and watch your videos to the end."

First, you must lay down the foundations by working hard to provide good content for your readers. Once trust and visibility have been built, sales will happen. Clients will hire you.

YouTube Channel redesign: An overview and some quick tips

From www.creativeramblings.com

Last week was a time of major announcements in the social media world. Google+ profiles and pages got a new look and Facebook introduced its revamped News Feed.

 

But it was not all. The new YouTube Channels are officially here!

Today, I spent a couple of hours looking around YouTube, editing my profile, and taking screenshots.

 

Google outdid itself. The new channels are sleek, and more interactive and engaging than ever! Plus, they have been optimized to fit all screens (laptops, phones, tablets, TVs).
