How to plan YouTube content?

14 replies
Hey warriors I have a list of topics I can teach on, based on my experience and knowledge in business, personal development and IM. Some 25 topics. But I'm curious how would you go about creating content for videos with this bulk of information?

What type of writer would be great to add to my journey and why?

Some YouTube channel creation videos say you have to just publish at least 30-35 videos asap to get past that threshold that holds most back.

    I run a fairly successful YouTube channel. My method is to simply find popular search terms via keyword analysis and make videos to fit those terms.

    Key words / factors here "my experience and knowledge in business" vs searching terms that are popular and making content. The "experience and knowledge" will shine through your content - and make people come back for more.

    25 topics... this adds a whole level of complexity... like literally Im sitting here and can put my head around the concept but cant even begin to think HOW I would execute this.

    You NEED a primary topic. let's throw in an example here, um ( https://www.youtube.com/c/ProfessorofRock ) will probably fit the bill. Knowledge out the ying yang here - crazy passion for what he does. The more videos you watch the more you understand he has many many many kind of side topics - BUT they all revolve around a "Primary" topic.

    My biggest peeve if you will with his ( Professor of Rock ) content is there is no way of knowing what segment is what looking at the thumbnail or the title. This is something you want to sort out. If you go here: ( https://www.youtube.com/c/StumpyNubs ) and look you will notice again PRIMARY topic... but in this instance there is a color coding of side topics. It is very clear to identify.

    There are many other creators that have a Primary channel and then side channels with outlying content as well. I can think of more than a few that have 3 and 4 or more side channels depending on their width of knowledge.

    In terms of blasting through as much content as possible... watch any and every interview with Mr. Beast, you can find. Look at the Pauls, old SmileMore ( Atwood ) and the thing you will hear and see over and over is quality over quantity. Casey Neistat would be another to look at. He had it figured out to a pretty exacting formula that each and every video followed... he has videos where he lays this stuff out. I actually found one real quick:


    The most important variable... do YOU, Don't chase topics because they are popular... your efforts will be fleeting at best. Develop a base of content and grow from there. USE the created content to dictate the direction you follow based on things like number of views of a topic etc. It DOESNT matter what other people are doing... it matters how you can understand what you are doing, and how the audience is reacting, and pivot into positions with your "experience and knowledge" that the audience wants to see more of.

    Just stay in your lane... do you... and let your audience dictate the overall direction over time... in the meantime, Start with a centralized Primary topic, and drip in other topics until you start to see patterns in what is watched and what isn't - what gets traction with YouTube and which topics don't. ( If you watch Meet Kevin at all he complains / comments about this on a regular basis )

    Hope that Helps!

    I would start with what has gone viral already in that niche then add content to that content.

    I pick keywords based on research as others have suggested and try to go for Q&A style topics.

    From there, it's all about competitor research. I search the top 10-15 videos for my keyword and look at all the visible metrics to get averages...

    If most ranking videos are 8 minutes long, cover the topic more in-depth than everyone else and go for a 10 minute duration.

    I've done a few YouTube SEO campaigns in the last couple of years and it's a radically different algorithm compared to the likes of Google Organic, but you can figure out the signals that boost YouTube ranking the most with a little trial and error.

    In my experience, user engagement, links/embeds and video duration seem to be prominent ranking factors at the moment.

    You could always create highly informative videos and send direct traffic to them via your email list, social media, and notifications from your YouTube subscribers. It's the direct marketing approach to getting Youtube traffic.

    You should first do a research on popular keywords and hashtags that are being used on YouTube to find what is trending and popular, and what other famous channel that operates in similar niche are using. Then, you should add those keywords into your videos descriptions, and if you plan to hire someone to help you with this task, I would recommend that you go for some SEO copywriter as they will be the most useful for your needs. And as for the question related to uploading YouTube videos, you could maybe use this new format and make couple of short ones and upload it to your channel, but I would say that you could go with smaller amount than 30 videos.

    In my opinion you need to post videos on a consistent basis like 1 video daily or weekly just posting 25 videos it will not be a good strategy ,dont expect to break the mapamond

    In my experience, a lot of content creators make the mistake of trying to work on their channel for too long without releasing anything. However, just like with starting any business from scratch, you never get anywhere if you don't take the first step. As such, I tend to recommend that other YouTubers just bite the bullet and make a short video (2-3 minutes) introducing themselves and talking about why they started their channel. This can be a great way to ease into the process and build up some confidence in yourself thereafter.
