    Why YouTube Doesn't Surface Your Videos to More People [Ep. #247]

    Why YouTube Doesn't Surface Your Videos to More People [Ep. #247]

    YouTube's algorithm can feel really complicated sometimes. We spend hours and hours and hours drafting, filming, editing, and posting our videos only for us to upload it and then... crickets. We immediately slip into thinking that maybe there's something wrong with YouTube? Maybe it glitched (again)? But maybe, just maybe, it's not the algorithm. Maybe it's your content. Today we talk about a few reasons why YouTube might not be surfacing your videos to more viewers and what you can do about it.

    5 Ways to Use Stakes in Your Stories to Grip Your Viewer's Attention [Ep. #246]

    5 Ways to Use Stakes in Your Stories to Grip Your Viewer's Attention [Ep. #246]

    Creating an emotional connection with your viewers is one of the best ways to get them to watch more, boost watch time, get them to watch more videos, subscribe, and keep coming back for more. Crafting your videos around a story is one of the best ways to do that, but it's a difficult skill to learn. Many people think they are telling a story, but no one really ends up caring about it because there's no stakes. There's not a reason to care about the character nor what they want nor if they even end up getting what they want.
     
    In today's episode we talk about 5 ways that you can raise the stakes in your story to make your videos more interesting and better engage your audience.

Thank You + YouTube Hashtag Question

Hi Tim! I wanted to just reach out and express my gratitude for the valuable content you are sharing with the world. Your podcasts are energizing and inspiring, as well as educational! That brings me to a big question I’ve been having that I can’t seem to find the answer to online anywhere! (read on...)

I have been sporadically posting videos to my YouTube channel since 2018 but decided to start taking it more seriously with my New Years Resolution to post one video every week (same day, same time). So far I have stuck to that, and now I am gearing up to increase my posting to 2-3 times per week (pushing for 3 times per week). I have done tons of studying through books, youtube videos, virtual trainings, podcasts, blogs, etc. because I understand that to truly grow online, and specifically YouTube, it’s so much more than just creating videos. I have learned a lot about the best practices regarding titles, thumbnails, keywords, tags, descriptions, etc., but one thing I just can’t seem to dig up much in the way of recent information on is YouTube HASHTAGS! Everything that pulls up on YouTube and Google is from around 2018, when the feature was new. I found one recent post (March 2020) on it, but we all know that the dynamic of the platform has changed a lot over the course of 2 years. Given the large output I am preparing to do (as a one-man-band, by the way), I want to know if YouTube hashtags are worth my time. I am trying to tackle my channel with “no stone left unturned” but my time is still limited, and if this is obsolete, I don’t want to waste time on it. If it is not, however, why are hashtags still helpful for search? What would be the best way to identify “optimized hashtags” today? I want to apply best practices, but I just can’t find anything current. )Apologies for the redundancy.)

I’d really love to hear your take on it as a current creator and YouTube expert I often learn from. I love that your answers to questions and lessons are always packed with not only actionable steps, but also with reasons behind it all and the value of each strategy. I’ve honestly been hesitant to post a question because I know you and your team are so successful that I fear it will get lost in the mix. But now I realize that you have given so much to me that it doesn’t entirely matter whether you do or don’t; you always come through with something valuable! Hope you get around to answering this question. Thanks again for everything you’re doing!

Holy Ears ,

Excellent!!

Tim is straightforward, knowledgeable, and professional. I am learning so much! It is challenging and intimidating sometimes but the facts I am learning are invaluable.
