    YouTube Experts React To Bad YouTube Ranking Advice [Ep.#283]

    YouTube Experts React To Bad YouTube Ranking Advice [Ep.#283]

    You don't have to look long to find some bad advice online about how the YouTube algorithm works, how to rank your videos, how to "SEO" your channel, rank number 1, and get more views. Most of it is rooted in an antiquated understanding of how YouTube works despite being promoted still today as "best practices."
    I went to a few blog posts on sites that are considered authoritative on Google SEO and pulled out some of the bad advice and most common myths I hear. I'm going to share each one with Lennon and D'Laina, two of the other YouTube Strategists on our team here at Video Creators, and get them to react.
    CREATOR SPOTLIGHT: Leslie took a break for several years from his channel and now wants to grow it again. So we hopped into a consultation to discuss his next steps for infusing growth into his inactive channel. He shares more about one of the tactics he'll be using on his channel to do just that.

    Backlink SEO, Stealing Someone's Audience, Paid Growth, and Other Less Common YouTube Growth Tactics [Ep.#280]

    Backlink SEO, Stealing Someone's Audience, Paid Growth, and Other Less Common YouTube Growth Tactics [Ep.#280]

    When a creator is struggling to see growth on their YouTube channel, they commonly start trying some other tactics to get more views and subscribers showing up on their videos. Today we tackle several of them to help you know if they're worth your time or not, including backlinks, stealing another creator's audience, sharing videos to your email list vs. letting the video grow organically first, tapping into a competitor's audience, growing your audience with advertising, balancing videos intended for growth vs. those intended for building community, and more.
    We also tackle some topics around YouTube Shorts, such as how many shorts you should be publishing each week, whether or not you should use thumbnails on Shorts, notifications for Shorts, and much more.
    Our final Video Labs session for the year starts in only a few weeks! To join a small group of creators and work through our YouTube growth process for us for 8 weeks, register here: https://videocreators.com/video-labs/

    Steps for Using Story to Build a Deep and Lasting Connection with Your Audience feat. Matthew Dicks [Ep.#279]

    Steps for Using Story to Build a Deep and Lasting Connection with Your Audience feat. Matthew Dicks [Ep.#279]

    On YouTube, you only get a few seconds to quickly hook someone's attention and get them to feel something that holds their attention throughout the video. Storytelling is one of the best ways to do that, but how? How do you use storytelling to connect with your audience and build a relationship with them? Which stories should you pitch with your titles and thumbnails? How should you open your stories to quickly grab someone's attention? How do you use stories when you're an educator? Should you just teach or tell the story or a combination of both? What if your video doesn't naturally have stakes involved or conflict?
    Today we talk with Matthew Dicks, a world-renown storyteller and the author of Storyworthy. He guides us through all these questions and more.

Most helpful content for me as a new creator

I have searched far and wide for resources to help me start my YouTube journey right, and this is hands-down the most helpful and consistently solid information for me as a new creator. I am not one to normally pay for courses and things like that (I can figure it out myself! 🙄), but I have found this podcast to be so helpful that I purchased the “30 Days” course and, as expected, I’m finding huge value in it.

I really appreciate the people-centered (not robot-centered) approach that is always presented here, and I find so much thought-provoking content here that helps me define and reach my audience.

Can’t thank you all enough. 🙏🏼 -Tanner

This show often spends a large majority just ruthlessly plugging the services they provide instead of covering the topic in the title. The last episode was about an hour with over 30 minutes devoted to a sales pitch. This is very annoying and not worth skipping through to find the small section of actual content.
