Would you like people to click more on your YouTube videos? Well then do not go, because I’m going to teach you how to clickbait the one that WORKS. And I will also explain to you why what you are doing now is not working for you.
Today I’m going to talk to you about a new strategy: SEOBAIT! And you will learn some tricks that you did not know.
What is SEOBAIT and how does it work?
In the previous lesson of our YouTube course, we talked about why it was important to increase the CTR. And the clickbait is the best tool we have to get people to click more on our videos.
The problem is that if people do not see our videos in the results, they can not click on them. So it will give us exactly the same as we worked on the best video and the best miniature in the world.
Conclusion: we have to solve that problem NOW. And we will start by taking advantage of the titles of our videos to be positioned in the results and attract attention to catch clicks.
This set of strategies is called SEOBAIT, a mix of SEO and Clickbait, which you will be able to start applying from YA.
We are going to see 7 tricks that work and will help you to shoot the clicks on your YouTube videos.
1. Use the Long Tail technique
Include your long tail keyword in the title of your videos.
Put it as close as possible to the beginning of the title. Why? Because on mobile the titles look pretty short and if you put the keyword towards the end, nobody will see it.
When people do long tail searches, what they want to see is just what they’ve searched for.
2. Includes numbers in the title
It is like that. Include numbers in titles, WORK. Whether it’s a year, a specific number of tips, etc.
The numbers attract attention and make people click.
3. Capital letters
Our brain is “vague” and when you see a phrase, you do not read all the words directly. It is like that. It scans by parts and automatically interprets the meaning.
If we take advantage of this to capitalize the words that interest us most, they will draw more attention within the title of the video.
Capitalizes selectively and strategically to focus the attention of “lazy” brains.
In this life, we must stand out. And on YouTube even more, because there are many people making the same videos.
Therefore, another good way to get the titles of your videos to draw attention to the results is to use emojis, which also work very well.
Parentheses, brackets, hyphens, exclamations, arrows, asterisks …
The signs in the title also help highlight other results that only use letters. Test it!
Make sure you print some emotion to your titles. How is that done?
Go directly to the user and appeal to their curiosity.
Curiosity is a super important emotion. Do not reveal everything the user will be able to find in the video. Leave the honey on your lips to awaken your curiosity and click.
7. Pattern breakage
And we come to the end with the most important point: the pattern break.
Or what is the same, get differentiated from others.
Before writing the title of your video, always look on YouTube for that long tail word for which you want to position your video.
If the vast majority of results have a very long title, make yours be short.
If most are written in capital letters, write yours in lowercase.
That everyone has numbers, that yours does not have. That they do not have emojis, include them in your title.
In the end, the first step of the clickbait is to get attention and you will not get it if you are not different.
Conclusion: break the pattern to highlight and take the clicks!
