HOW TO GET MORE VIEWS IN 2018 WITH NEW YOUTUBE FEATURES (COMING IN 2018) - THUMBNAIL IMPRESSIONS & CTR
One of the easiest ways to get more views in 2018 and beyond is to create compelling thumbnails that increase the amount of viewers clicking on your videos. This is known as CTR or "click through ratio" and it's a very important metric to understand when it comes to YouTube.
However, YouTube has not shared thumbnail CTR or impression data with YouTube Creators yet. However, that's about to change as the YouTube Team that is working on the new YouTube Studio is working on adding:
- Thumbnail Click Through Ratio (CTR)
- Thumbnail Impressions
- Unique Viewers
This information will be displayed next to "average view duration" metrics inside the new YouTube Studio Beta. This is such a big deal as it will be possible to understand if your thumbnail is great, above average or poor.
You can't argue with this kind of analytical information. Even better, a great thumbnail can result in more views on youtube, more watch time and general success. Thus, this is how to get more views on youtube in 2018, 2019, 2020 and beyond.
When you not only take the time to create great thumbnails, but you test them against one another, you can easily get more views on youtube fast.
However, how do you actually make great thumbnails? Another words, what will trigger viewers to click your thumbnail over another thumbnail.
How? By leveraging the power of science.
The human eye is drawn to some visual elements more than others. By leveraging these visual elements you can craft thumbnails that win the click and get you more views in less time.
In this video, I share details on these new YouTube features that will be rolling out in 2018 as well as ten visual hacks you can leverage to win the click.
