YOUTUBE SEO (the lazy way to get more views on youtube 2020)
There are plenty of blogs and videos on SEO. But if you do all that research on everything about SEO, you’re just going to slow down your video creation process. You’re here because you quickly want to learn about YouTube SEO so that you can optimize your videos and get found on the YouTube search results.
The important thing you need to know about optimizing your videos is that you should include your keywords in your title, your tags, your description, and your captions (Google is actually able to scrub your captions for keywords).
The first thing you want to think about when starting a YouTube channel is having a niche. If you don’t have a niche I would suggest that you do more research and try to find a niche for your business.
I made a couple of videos on how to edit videos, but I wanted to give you a behind the scenes of how I edit videos quickly for YouTube. Just so you know, everything in planning and filming has to be organized before you even start editing. Get an inside look at my YouTube video editing process.
YOUTUBE VIDEO EDITING (BTS of how I edit videos QUICKLY!)
Today I’m going to be talking about YouTube video editing. Specifically, I’m going to give you a behind the scenes look at how I edit my videos quickly. So I know I’ve talked about simple video editing or video made easy in a video before but I thought it would be easier to show you how I actually edit my video.
01 Get organized
Before I get into how I edit my videos quickly for YouTube. I wanted to talk about planning and filming. Those two have to be organized before you can quickly edit your videos. So if that’s a mess, then this video editing isn’t going to work.
Open Adobe Premiere and name your project after the video that you’re actually editing. A few weeks ago, I talked about organizing your video files. You’re going to add your Adobe file (or your software file) to the folder called ‘Editing’ your YouTube video file. Make sure all your files are named correctly. Even your footage should be named with your final video title and then numbered in sequential order.
Are you confused about YouTube SEO? SEO helps you get found by search engines. That includes Google, YouTube, Pinterest, and so on. Even if you don’t have a big audience, it’s good to optimize your content so when you do grow bigger or someone randomly searches for your content topic, they’ll be able to find you. This is such a big deal for YouTube. People are searching for videos to help them solve problems all the time. That’s why you should optimize your video as soon as you upload your YouTube video. Learn all the things you need to do to optimize your video in this YouTube video upload tutorial.
YouTube Video Upload (Everything you need to know to optimize your video!)
Today I’m going to talk about everything you need to know to optimize your videos. Basically, this is just an updated version of “How to Upload Your YouTube Videos,” but we’re going to be talking about YouTube SEO. So if you haven’t uploaded a video yet this year, YouTube has actually updated their uploader, so now you can only upload one video at a time, but don’t worry, you can actually go back to the classic version. I’m guessing that they updated the uploader because of the new rules with the kid content. They want to know if you’re creating videos for kids or if you’re not creating videos for kids, but really, if you go to the defaults, you can actually check to say that your channel is not for kids or if it is for kids.
01. File names are important when you upload YouTube Videos
Before you upload your video, the first thing you need to do is name your video file. The name of your video file is important because it’s also part of SEO. Don’t just upload a video that says “video one,” or “YouTube video one,” or some people use dates for their videos. Make sure you name your file what your YouTube video title is.
Do you take forever to edit your videos because you’re unorganized? Well having a process in place will help you save time. Keep watching to find out how to organize your video files so you can edit your YouTube videos faster.
How to organize your video files so you can edit your YouTube videos faster
I’m a total neat freak. I’m the type to keep all my stuff organized and put things back where they go. Yes, I’m one of those people who organize their closet by types of clothes, color, and occasion. I know exactly where all my stuff is and I never have to look for anything.
Even my mess is organized. Right now on my desk, I have Post-its and papers everywhere, but in a way that I can find what I need quickly. You might be thinking that I’m so awesome for keeping my stuff organized, but let me tell you, it’s out of laziness. That’s right, I’m too lazy to clean, so I put things back where they go. It’s that simple. The same principle applies to video editing.

Do you want to know my secret to getting everything done in my business? It’s Asana! I use it for everything in my business. That includes client management, content management, professional development, daily tasks, and keeping up with goals. Keep watching to find out how to use asana to keep up with all your business tasks.
How to use Asana to keep up with all your business tasks
I’ve gone through a lot of checklist tools and project management tools BUT Asana is my favorite. Trello used to be my favorite, but then Asana created boards. I’m more of a checklist type of person anyway.
The #1 reason I stick to Asana is because of the flying unicorn, yeti and other mythical creatures that fly by when I finish my tasks. It’s like a little reward for finishing my work.
What can you use Asana for?
I like to use Asana for both business and personal tasks, but I’m going to focus solely on business tasks. I use it to manage client projects, create videos, write blog posts, write newsletters, keeping up with social media, create products, and other projects. Basically, I use it to organize and manage my business.
How do I create a project?
Let’s start by creating projects. We’re going to go to the left-hand side and click on ‘Add Team’. Then you’re going to name your team.
Some ideas are your name or your company name, your content, your client projects (which can be named client projects, design projects, coaching calls, or anything that has to do with your service), your marketing, your products, and so on. I’m going to go ahead and create all these projects.
Since we’re just beginning, I’m going to focus on tasks that I have to remember to do all the time.
So, under your main project, which should be named after you or your company, I’m going to create another project that will have all my recurring tasks.
For example, I created a project called ‘Paigon’s workspace’. I’m going to go to the ‘+’ next to ‘Paigon’s workspace and add my new project and ‘blank project’. You have the option of using a template or importing it. I’m going to use a blank project.
Then, I’m going to name it after my business, but you can name it anything like ‘All the things’ or ‘Important tasks’. It doesn’t matter as long as you know it has everything you need to do all the time for your business. I’m going to choose ‘list’ and create a project. Just so you know, you can invite people on the project if you have a VA or a team that collaborates on a project.
How do I automate my business?
The goal of this is to start automating your business, so you can make doing things easier for yourself. So, first I’m going to create important sections in this project. To create sections you need to hit the ‘Tab + N’ keys on the keyboard. I’m going to name my sections:
Then I’m going to create tasks under each section. Like under daily (which is weekdays for me), I know I have to check my emails daily, so I’m going to add ’check emails’. Maybe I want to check Facebook or Instagram daily too.
Under Bi-weekly, I can add something like checking Twitter or YouTube. I like to add pins to Pinterest weekly. I do accounting monthly. I like to plan goals quarterly, and I can’t really think of anything yearly (except for reviewing the year). But I want you to think of all the things you do for each section that are important for your business.
Okay, so I’ve updated everything for each section. Now I’m going to automate it so that each time I finish the task, it’ll be created automatically.
To create a recurring task, you have to go to the task you created, like ‘Facebook’, assign the task to yourself. Create a due date. Then repeat ‘daily’ or if it’s only on weekdays, repeat ‘weekly’ on Monday through Friday. You can even add a due time if you have to do it by a certain time each day.
You repeat the same thing for the other tasks and create the due date and if it repeats weekly or monthly. For monthly, you can choose a date every month or you can choose weekly and schedule it ever 4 or 5 weeks on a certain day of the week.
What if I like Trello boards better?
I used to be a big fan of Trello, but I realized I worked better just looking at a simple checklist. BUT you can create boards in Asana just like Trello. I actually like having both options.
Since it’s a new year, that means new goals. I actually like to create boards for my goals because it’s easier to look at an overview for the year.
To create a board you just have to create a project under your team and then instead of a list, you can choose a board. BUT just so you know, your board is automatically created when you create a list.
You just go to your project and under the project name at the top, you see ‘list’ and ‘board’. I thought it was cool that you don’t have to choose between the 2 anymore. Now if you create a board, you automatically get a list and vice versa.
Asana makes it easy to keep up with all your goals and tasks you have for your business. Whether you love looking at lists, boards, or calendars, Asana has you covered. The best part is Asana is free! You can use it when you’re just starting your business and keep using it as you expand and grow a team.
