Getting started

YouTube video software that gets clicks

Did you know?

Did you know that almost five billion videos are watched on YouTube every day.

YouTube is one of the best places to put your brand front and centre. With so many people watching, you want to get your video content up and running as soon as possible.

Sounds complicated? It’s not. Say hello to the Biteable video maker.

Templates ahoy

All it takes is a template to get started – and we’ve got a lot of them. Our team of digital marketing experts have studied what makes the most effective YouTube ads tick in order to craft the best YouTube ad templates possible. You don’t need a degree in advertising to jump in – all you need is a brand to market. Simply select a template from our library and tune it to your liking.

The best part? You can do it yourself, and do it in minutes.

Low cost, high reward

We believe making YouTube ads shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. With Biteable, you can make premium videos with minimal investment. All it takes is a few minutes of your time and a computer, phone, or tablet to work on.

We love video and want you to love it too. That’s why our video maker for YouTube gives you access to thousands of hand-picked animated and stock footage clips to edit as you see fit, and you can try it all out on our basic membership. You can upgrade later to remove the watermark.

The customer service provided by the Biteable team is outstanding. I think many companies could learn a thing or two from this team. Thank you for always going above and beyond.

The basics

Get the most out of our YouTube video creator

It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a pro laptop or an old brick of a computer, you can make Biteable videos on anything as long as you have an internet connection. Although you can pick a template and make a video in no time, there are still a few useful tips to keep in mind to make sure your YouTube video is all killer, no filler.

Hook your viewers fast

With YouTube ads and videos, it’s vital to get to the point quickly. Don’t labour on slow introductions, viewers find that sort of thing tedious. The best thing you can do is answer the question on everyone’s mind: “why am I watching this video?”

Boredom is the common enemy content creators and advertisers have to grapple with on YouTube. Viewers have a short attention span, and when you’ve got millions of videos at your disposal, why would you want to watch something that’s not entertaining?

Make it short and sweet

How many times have you been watching a YouTube video only to turn it off or change videos because you’re losing interest? And how many times have you clicked the ‘Skip Ad’ button when an ad is playing before your video?

Just like you want to hook your viewers in fast, the best way to keep your viewers engaged is to not waffle. This means you’ll have less people closing your videos and skipping your ads halfway through, watching through to the end, and increasing interest in your content and brand.

Pro tips

Make your YouTube videos unskippable

Ready to kick things into overdrive? Now you’ve got your animated video logo ready to go, we’ve got a few more tips before you send it out into the web. Did you know Biteable’s online video maker allows you to change all sorts of stuff in your video? Read on and we’ll show you how (it’s easy, we promise).

Consider the big questions

No need to ponder the meaning of life here, we’re not talking that big a question. Take a step back and consider:

  • What is your brand known for?
  • Who is your audience?

People go to YouTube for two main reasons: to be informed or entertained. This means you should tailor your content to those expectations. For example, if you’re a plumber, it might be a good idea to post videos detailing funny stuff like a list of the strange things you’ve found clogging up pipes (entertaining), or to post short how-to videos in order to establish you or your business as an authority in the field (informative).

Work on your strategy

YouTube is best suited to a long-term advertising strategy as opposed to more ephemeral, ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ platforms like Facebook or Twitter, but bear in mind that any social media presence can influence how visible your website is to search engines.

Don’t worry if your channel isn’t flooded with viewers after the first few hours. Sometimes it will take a while for your channel to build momentum, but good quality and regular video updates will go a long way toward becoming more prominent in YouTube searches.

Have a look at your video stats in the channel manager. If people regularly skip the intro, consider making it shorter. If the shorter titles retain more viewers, go with that strategy. Continually testing means you’ll keep getting better as you learn more about your audience.
