Bonus: 2 tips for scheduling YouTube videos

Having a set strategy and an easy way to post scheduled YouTube videos is key to the success of your YouTube account. Everything from the keywords in the video file you upload, the custom thumbnail image in the video thumbnail, and the video tags used are all important to help your video content stand out. Therefore, knowing how to amp up the reach of your video on YouTube by having a scheduled video is key.

Here are 2 tips for you to keep in mind when scheduling your YouTube videos:

#1 Be consistent on posting times for your scheduled video on YouTube

Your audience likes to know when they can expect your next video. So, give them what they are looking for! Decide the frequency and cadence of your publishing date, whether it's every Tuesday or every fourth Thursday of the month, and stick to a consistent content calendar schedule.

#2 Boost engagement by cross-promoting

Once you have your video scheduled, set up a strategy to cross-promote your YouTube content. Great video content is not easy to put together, so take advantage of your video elements and share them across different social media accounts.

If you need to shorten your YouTube short, or even lengthen it, for another social media platform, do what you need to do to get your video on multiple platforms and increase engagement and overall reach.
