Improve Your Campaign #10 – YouTube Video Descriptions

Oct 20, 2016


In our last video in this series we talked about Tags. Today let’s talk about your YouTube descriptions. They are very important to your video marketing efforts. Here are three quick tips:

Write Long Video Descriptions

Unlike your video itself, brevity is not your friend. This is just classic SEO. YouTube gives you 5000 characters to utilize. Fill your YouTube video descriptions with natural-sounding, keyword-heavy info that relates to your video, but no keyword lists (that is what the tags are for). We will often include a transcript as part of our video descriptions.

Include a Link

A link could be the first and last line of your video descriptions. Including a link gives your viewers an easy next step to access more of your content.

Encourage Subscribing and Sharing

Looking for more content to fill out that 5,000 characters? A statement about subscribing or sharing your video is a great thing to add after your initial description – engaged viewers will see it and take action.
