Thumbnail is your first communication with your viewer. Tell a story in your thumbnail to capture the interest of your viewer. Make them curious and interested to explore more about the video content.
Compelling thumbnails increase the chances of users clicking on your video. This will make your YouTube channel more recognizable. Thus, thumbnails must be in coherence with the video’s content and title.
A short description or sentence with relevant images in the thumbnail is essential. These will help people understand what your video is about. An exciting title, well-designed, and well-thought-out thumbnail are vital to hook the user. These elements tell the complementary story of your video. Thumbnails are like the book covers.
Asking your viewers to buy your products is not an effective youtube strategy at all. Soft selling is a better approach to pitch your business and services to your viewers.
The core idea of inbound marketing is to teach, help and create value for your audience. This type of marketing strategy will help you build your brand and drive sales.
For better organic reach, collaborative videos are viral among content creators. These videos are also popular choices among viewers for their credibility.
Brands, influencers, and content creators collaborate to bring relevant content to audiences. The collaborative content will help both collaborators to tap into each other’s audience.
The cross-promotion will be an added benefit for both you and the partner brand or influencer. It will also help you build your brand by making you look good through credible associations. Few tips on how to make these collaborations a win/win situation for you, your audience, and partners are:

The value you have already delivered in the video will back up the selling pitch of your services. You can streamline the video production with a video production proposal template.
To stay true to your brand, it is crucial to align your content and marketing accordingly. For a quick review:
80% of your content may not get people to buy your product or subscribe to your services, but it will keep you on the platform while your brand adds value in so many other ways. You can control some parts of marketing your business on YouTube (e.g., through your content, SEO). You need to put some effort into other parts—for example, outreach, collaborations, cross-platform promotions. Then there are parts you can’t control at all. For example, Whether people will download your product or not or if they’ll follow you on other platforms or not.
You can create a yummy and delightful recipe for marketing your business on YouTube. It is by getting a good grip on things that you can control and what you should control. Create interesting, engaging, and quality content. Use creative thumbnails. Hook your audience by offering them value. This all will lead them to buy your products and services without hard pitching.
