The basics

Get the most out of your YouTube video creator software

It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a pro laptop or an old brick of a computer, you can make stunning videos with Biteable’s online YouTube video creator software 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 your YouTube video all killer, no filler.

Hook viewers fast

With YouTube videos and ads, it’s vital to get to the point quickly. Don’t labor 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 lose interest? And how many times have you clicked the ‘Skip Ad’ button when an ad plays before your video?

After you hook viewers, the best way to keep them 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 unskippable YouTube videos

You’ve got Biteable’s online YouTube video maker on your side, so your all set. But if you really wan to kick things into video-making overdrive, we’ve got a few more tips.

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?
  • What problem does your product or service solve for them?

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 your business as an authority in the field (informative).

Work on your strategy

YouTube videos are 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 YouTube channel isn’t flooded with viewers after the first few hours. Sometimes it takes a while for a channel to build momentum, but good quality and regular video content will go a long way toward becoming more prominent in YouTube searches.

Have a look at your video stats in YouTube’s 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.
