The Perfect YouTube Video Checklist :-

The first step to follow while creating a video to upload on YouTube is to think of a proper concept on which the video can be made. The concept should be trending and interesting. Concept plays a vital role while making a video. Proper concept will lead you to get more views and subscribers.
- Prepare Script for your Video
Selecting a topic and choosing correct keywords are the important things while creating a YouTube video but to make all these things in line and to decide what to speak in your video and how to present it, you should make a script for your video where you can roughly right the points/content you want to speak about.
- Select a relevant Title
Not only selecting a proper concept is important but also selecting a relevant title for it is crucial. Your video title must consist of your keywords. One more bonus tip here is to add your channel name in the title of all your videos.
- Add description
Adding a description to your video is always a better idea. Giving your viewers the understanding of the video in text format will definitely help viewers to connect with you well. You can also add extra links and shortcuts of your videos in the description section. Here you can also add the other social media channel links.
- Use of suitable Tags
Using tags on your video in YouTube is very beneficial. Your video can be found by people on YouTube with the help of tags also. Try to include all suitable tags for your video but remember not to do tags stuffing.
- Create customised thumbnails
Thumbnails are the first impression of your video so create a very impressive and attractive thumbnail for every video you upload. To make your thumbnail look good, you can add your focus keyword and title in the post. Your thumbnail can be one of the screenshots from your video.
- Add info cards
An info card is a small video at the top of your video (mostly in the right hand side corner of the screen). In info cards you can put links of other related videos with that of the current one. This is a good source to keep viewers engaged with your videos. Other options available with info cards are showcase playlists, other channel links, website links, and even create a poll.
- Choose the correct aspect ratio
YouTube displays videos in the ratio of 16:9. This is considered as the best ratio for YouTube videos to utilise the whole screen properly. With this ratio you cover the full screen which gives the viewer a good experience. If you do not follow this ration then you might get black lines around your video.
- Video Quality
Maintaining the best video quality is also very important to put a better experience for your viewers. The ratios which you can follow to maintain high quality video can be – 7680p(8K):7680×4320, 2160p(4K):3840×2160, 1440p:2560×1440, 1080p:1920×1080, 720p:1280×720, 480p:854×480, 360p:640×360, 240p:426×240. Providing HD quality is the best to attract and retain your viewers on your videos.
- Video Length
Normally on social media platforms it is considered that small length videos perform well but that’s not the case for YouTube. Long length videos tend to perform well on YouTube as it maintains the viewers retention and increases the watch time too. But there is one more point to focus on here is that different viewers like different lengths of videos, so all channels must have all lengths of videos with them to retain all kinds of viewers. Remember the initial 15 seconds are always to one where you can connect with your viewer the most and it decides whether the viewer will connect to the remaining video or not.
- Add an end screen.
Very crucial point is to add an end screen at the end of your video where you can put the link of your own other videos or your videos related to the topic which you have discussed in the current video. This will be beneficial for you as people will see your other videos also which will increase the watch time of your channel.
- Share on social media.
Cross sharing is a very good way of spreading awareness and updates of your brands. You can share the link of your new video on all your other social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Quora, etc.
- Check the post-upload analytics
Not only studying analytics of pre-uploading video is important but also post-uploading analytics study is very important. While studying the post analysis you will understand the growth of your video views and know which kind of videos are performing well which can be improved.
