If you want your YouTube videos to gain traction, you not only need great content but also attention-grabbing aesthetics and the right keywords so people can find your videos.
If I’m being honest though, graphic design doesn’t come naturally to me, and I’d rather focus my time on creating killer videos instead of optimizing titles, keywords, and descriptions.
That’s why when Fiverr approached me about working together, I was excited to see what the sellers on the platform could do for my business. Turns out, Fiverr totally exceeded my expectations for not just being affordable but also high-quality, as it helped me get more of my videos to the top of YouTube search results.
On Fiverr, I started working with a designer to create YouTube thumbnail images. I got an incredible deal for 25 thumbnails for just $40, and now more of my videos pop when you see them on search pages.
To that point, I also started working with video SEO experts, because YouTube, which is owned by Google, is also a search engine. If you want to win on YouTube, you need to rank high for certain keywords pertinent to your business.
