- Title: Be catchy! The first two words of your title are the most important, use these words to describe what your video is about. Be natural, and offer context.
- Description: Use natural language when describing your video, with the most important words toward the beginning (hint: use the same two words you used to kick off your title!). After describing what the video is about, include information on your channel and social media handles and contact info. If you happen to utilize any outside information, or a particular product that you'd like to share with your viewers, this is where you'd include links.
- Keywords: Maximize your reach and fill out the full 500 characters! It’s important to keep your tags relevant to your content and channel. The first line of your tags are most important, keep that in mind when selecting the order of the words you use. Select both single word and multi word tags, each creator searches for a topic in a different way.
Always remember: consistency is key!, if you have “Spring Makeup” in your title, ensure that it’s also in your description and keywords.
