This post is on how to use YouTube playlists and annotations to easily direct viewers to your other videos.
- Annotations are notes, or call-outs, which you can use to o link your videos together or create a menu so users can easily watch other videos without moving to another tab.
- Annotations also give you freedom to be creative and interact with viewers on a deeper level. Let viewers “choose their own adventure”, ask for subscribers, tell users what to watch next, or encourage feedback at the end of a video.
- Create Playlists to group videos as they provide a simple way for users to be introduced to your content and re-watch classic videos. Playlists also increase discoverability because they’re indexed separately from search.
An example of an indexed playlist
- When you create playlists, organize them by specific themes to help viewers find videos they’re most interested in. Also, keep in mind that you can embed playlists on a web page to further capture viewers’ attention.
- Finally, when creating or editing a playlist, make sure to add appropriate tags and use all character limits as this’ll help users find your content.
