Let's start with the CHANNEL Optimization process


Image design


Let's start with the graphic or visual design part of your project, the first thing you should take into account is the quality of the images and the quality of the photographs to be able to captivate the new user who comes to your channel in one way or another, this it will always make your channel more attractive.

Cover image


Cover images should be of high quality, why? Because this type of platform extends to different devices, from mobile phones to huge screens, samart tv and at that point we do not want our design or photography to look pixelated and of poor quality , so try to have the highest quality and keep the elements more important in the center of the image you design, follow this design template so that you are very clear about the appropriate size and where your most important elements will be located.

Once the visual part of the channel has been optimized, we enter the second level of optimization, creating and defining the channel structure .

At this point we are going to assume that you already have several videos published on the channel , this with the aim of being able to structure the content that you have already published and allow the user to enter that content in an organized way.

▷ Channel design and structure

Well, since we have done the channel optimization for the subscribers, we will properly delve into the content. Pour yourself another coffee ☕ because things get more interesting.

Let's go to that!

▷ Video content optimization


One of the main objectives of YouTube and almost any platform on the web is precisely to keep users as long as possible , at this point you already know that on this platform a user spends 40 min from their cell phone per day consuming videos, so our goal As musicians or as any artistic project that develops visual content, it will be to keep these people or users connected in our content and on our channel , a rather difficult challenge, but not impossible.

This chapter will be divided into two parts, a technical or ( internal ) part and a visual or ( external ) part.

🧰 Video optimization from a technical point of view:


To start with this optimization, the first thing you should take into account is to name the video file before uploading it , that is, give your video file the same name that it will have on the YouTube channel.

GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.

Video title


The title of your video should contain the basics, and answer the question what is that content about? Normally, the artists established a nomenclature that is very easy to identify and as it becomes a common practice, it is a good idea to keep it to that extent, although if you appeal to good creativity you can create incredible titles for your videos.

The formula that is constantly used to name videos on music channels is:

Artist name + Song name

For video clips, the following is added to this other formula

Artist name + Song name + (Official Video)

Separators are used for each part of the title as you see in the following image:

Video description


In this field you have many more possibilities for creativity, to accompany your video content with textual information and of course with options to link to other content, to your social networks and even to your website and parts of the video itself (TimeStamp, a strategy that we share with you later).

Take the opportunity to tell YouTube what your video is talking about and what it is about, if it is a song we recommend that you add the lyrics and several links to your social networks .

🍀 Tactic to implement:


Keep in mind that the first two lines of text will be visible before directly entering the video as you see it in the image, so these lines should contain the most important part in terms of information about that content that you uploaded.

Final Screens


This element is quite important when it comes to achieving audience retention (making them remain in your videos), the final screens will make it possible to embed content elements just before finishing your content , we are talking about playlists , other videos and a subscription to your channel .

These elements will appear for a certain time so that the user does not finish browsing your channel there, unlike going to other content and if they have not subscribed they have a button directly to do so.

How to configure the end screens and what is the best way to do it?

GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.


Enter add and a panel will open with the default options for the elements to be placed at the end of your video, they are small templates already configured, we normally recommend you include two content and the subscription button so that the user has more options.

GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.

This is the final screen template we recommend the most.

GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.

You can move the elements to your liking in the right part of the panel and thus achieve a personalized configuration .

Add Cards


This element will help us to share a series of content throughout the video, but not necessarily videos, also to playlists, links to the artist's official website , and even conduct surveys to improve audience retention.

📣 Important:

To link your channel to a website , if you already have one, you must have gone to the YouTube monetization program with the conditions that they require: minimum 1000 subscribers and a minimum of 4,000 hours of reproduction of your content in general in the last year.

GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.



When you choose the type of card, it suggests some texts that are what will appear during the video, Personalized Message (call to access the card) and Advance Text (call for action on that content that you recommend)

Mensaje personalizado en tarjetas - GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.




In this way you can see how the cards that users browse during the playback of your videos are highlighted on one side of your video.

Ejemplo tarjeta - GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.



🍀 Tactic to implement:

We recommend you NOT to put cards that lead to your videos or playlist before the first 2 minutes , this to more effectively retain users, instead in those first minutes you can put surveys that are multiple choice without removing the user from the video, before generating greater interaction with the content, this being a very good message for the YouTube search engine.

Video tags


Tags allow YouTube to understand what your video is about , it is an important factor to tell the platform what topics your content is in and how it should show it to users who make certain searches .

GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.

🍀 Tactic to implement:

When choosing the tags you should take into account the searches that users who are potential followers of yours may carry out , so think very well how you would search for music that you want to know and what words you would use in that search , so you can include those searches as your tags.

GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.


If this is very confusing, we recommend a tool that will help you with very meaningful suggestions in the search for the tags that you will add to your videos.

📺 Video optimization from a visual point of view:

Miniature or Thumbnail


The next thing will be to include a thumbnail, but ...

What is a YouTube thumbnail?


YouTube thumbnail is a cover image or preview of any video uploaded to YouTube, when you upload a video, YouTube generates thumbnails of your video and gives you 4 options to choose from.

Thumbnails are important! This is the first thing viewers see when browsing videos, according to YouTube, " 90% of the best videos on YouTube have custom thumbnails."

YouTube thumbnail helps you improve CTR ( click through rate ) to increase views to your videos.

What is the size of a thumbnail or thumbnail?


The perfect size for the YouTube thumbnail is 1280 x 720 px (width x height), with a minimum width of 640 pixels.

The aspect ratio is 16: 9 . We also recommend that you make sure that the file does not increase in size by 2 MB and that the file formats to use are .JPEG , .PNG , .BMP or .GIF .


GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.

YouTube thumbnail resolution


The perfect resolution required for the thumbnail image is 1280 x 720 pixels, the resolution of the image corresponds to the number of pixels contained per inch and is expressed in DPI (dot per inch).

In general, the images we used on the web contained 72 pixels / inch.

A higher number of pixels creates better and high-quality images, but also increases the file size , if the resolution is low, the image will look pixelated and may have a smaller file size, for this reason, you need a high image resolution that won't blur when zoomed in.

Miniature width


The recommended minimum width is 640 pixels for the YouTube thumbnail image, when creating a custom thumbnail image, this is the smallest canvas size you can use.

An image smaller than 640 pixels cannot be accepted for a video thumbnail on YouTube.

Thumbnail maximum file size limit


YouTube's maximum thumbnail image file size is 2MB . YouTube has set a file size upload limit to load faster in web browser or mobile app, so it will not accept or upload the image if the file size is greater than 2MB .

Aspect ratio


The thumbnail image should maintain an aspect ratio of 16: 9 , an aspect ratio of 16: 9 means that the image is 16 units wide and 9 units high, this is the most popular ratio of the major media players , web players , television and mobile devices .

Take into account these other aspect ratios for other types of content, especially for networks such as Facebook , Instagram , Tiwtter , Linkedn and more.

Audience retention

What is audience retention?

Audience retention (sometimes referred to as " viewer retention ") is the average percentage of a YouTube video that people watch, videos with high audience retention scores tend to have higher visibility on the platform.

For example, let's say you just posted a video that is 10 minutes long , if people watch your video for an average of 5 minutes , your audience retention on that video is 50%.

Why is audience retention important?


Bottom line: YouTube loves videos that keep people connected to its platform. In fact, when YouTube released an update to their algorithm some time ago, they said:

💬 "We have started adjusting video rankings in YouTube search to reward the most engaging videos that keep viewers watching."

And now they currently confirmed that audience retention is still an important part of ranking by their algorithm:

💬 "And videos with high audience retention and watch time have the potential to appear more frequently in search and suggested locations on YouTube."

So it's clear that videos with high audience retention rank higher in YouTube searches (and are promoted elsewhere on the platform, such as the homepage and more frequently suggested videos).

▷ General Channel Settings and Preset Items


To get to configure your channel in a general way, you must go to YouTube Studio , as indicated in this image.

🎯 3 Strategies to improve your reproductions, internal linking of videos and attract more subscribers.


✅ Strategy 1 - The power of YouTube playlists

This strategy will help you give movement to many of your songs.

YouTube allows us to share these playlists with a single link and we will take advantage of this to give our songs a lot of noise. How to do this?
.
✔️ 1 - Create a list on your YouTube channel with several of your songs.

✔️ 2 - The first song must be the one you want to launch or promote on networks.

✔️ 3 - Once the playlist is created, look for the link provided by Youtube for each song contained in that list (see example image).

GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.
Example of a playlist created by the band Isla de Gosper

This link will always take you to the song specifically, but additionally you will always be in the playlist with all your other content, this is the link to the Playlist contained in the image so you can see how it works directly.

📌 Example of the link to the Playlist


✔️ 4 - Shorten your link on BITLY https://bit.ly or any link shortener and share it on your network or with your friends.

This strategy will allow you to direct your audience to a song you want, but they will also be listening to the next ones because they will be directly within the playlist you created.

✅ Strategy 2 - Timestamp or time linking to different parts of the video


If you want to link to a specific video part that is very important to your subscribers and you don't want viewers to skip or forward your long video, the TimeStamp link will help you here.

With the help of the TimeStamp link, viewers can directly access the particular moment of the video simply by adding information in the YouTube video description or at the end of the video URL . This amazing feature is not available on YouTube alternatives.

What are TimeStamp Links or specific time links?


YouTube TimeStamp links are video hyperlinks or anchor texts, these links help viewers or subscribers to find an important part of your video.

GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.
Example of TimeStamp in the description of a Radiohead video concert on a user channel

How to add the TimeStamp links to your video?


The method is quite simple, all you have to do is follow the time code in which the content is established on YouTube, go to your video, click edit and in the description add the time code.

To add seconds or minutes into the video you use:

00:00 minutes: seconds


As an example, if you want to go to minute 1 with 15 seconds : 01:15 , you give save and ready the TimeStamp, if you add a reference text before or after the numerical code, you will indicate to the user that he will find in that part.

If your video is a documentary or a full-length concert, use this time code:

00:00:00 hours: minutes: seconds


✅ Strategy 3 - Floating Subscription Confirmation Link

This is a little trick that will help us to bring people who are not subscribed to our channel from different platforms, both social networks and the artist's website, by making a direct invitation to the channel as a floating card, with a direct button of subscription.

This strategy increases subscription actions, because when you reach the channel it is the first action you are instructed to do. Obviously it is up to everyone to subscribe to the channel, but this makes it more attractive.

GUÍA completa para MÚSICOS y ARTISTAS con la mejor  ✅ OPTIMIZACIÓN y ✅ CONFIGURACIÓN para llevar tu canal de YOUTUBE a otro nivel.
Gosper Island Band Confirmation Link Example

How do I implement this link?


You just have to copy the URL of your channel and right at the end you add everything that is in red , without space. Ready you already have a floating subscription confirmation link to receive your new followers, now share it with all the people you want and on your social profiles to attract those new subscribers.

URL of your channel ? Sub_confirmation = 1

I share an example so you can see how it works.
