TIME-STAMPED SHOW NOTES:

  • [00:27] Today’s Topic: How to Outrank Your Competition on YouTube
  • [00:50] Ideally, you want to rank #1 for keywords.
  • [01:05] VidIQ helps you track your ranking for various keywords.
  • [01:59] YouTube will look at what happens to your video within the first 24 hours. If it doesn’t do well in that time frame, you won’t get promoted.
  • [02:40] When Neil first made YouTube videos, he did well because his viewers had a high watch time.
  • [03:10] Neil used to run paid promotions, but it didn’t do much for him.
  • [03:30] He doesn’t optimize for subscriptions.
  • [03:45] Push your videos in the first 24 hours of posting.
  • [04:10] Neil has a lot of traffic from other countries.
  • [04:20] So, he will send emails at times that work for other countries.
  • [05:06] That’s it for today!
  • [05:36] We hit our goal of 1 Million downloads! So, we will be throwing a free event in Los Angeles this June. Check out this website if you would like to attend.
