Step 2- Name the file:

Name the file by using your keyword, for example, Free-iPhone-giftcard.mp4.

Its not sure that whether the name of your file will help your video to get ranked or not, but anyways, its not harmful by any means.

Well! using tags won’t help you to rank your videos, instead, they help to find related videos to the users. You can make use of long tail keywords like, “where to find iPhone gift card”

A) Don’t forget to add “gobbledegook tag” in all your videos. What it will do is that it will create a connection between all your videos

B) Copy the keyword from the most viewed Youtube video, which is related to yours and use it in the name of your Youtube channel

Step 4- Description:

Write a description with a reasonable amount of words. In my opinion, 300+ words will be good enough. Use your keyword at least 4 times in your description. You can also copy text from your sales page, however, it should also be written with proper grammar.

First line-> Use keyword
Second line-> any URL(affiliate or your own website)

Copy your video URL and channel URL to post it with in your description.

a) Link it to any of your other channels
b) Link it to any other video
c) Ask them to give a feedback
d) Make use of a subscribe option.

Step 6- Thumbnails:

An attractive thumbnail can give you more clicks, so, insert a 1280×720{width 640 pixels) of a picture with jpeg, gif, bmp or png formats under the limit of 2mb.

Try using (16:9) aspect ratio because its mostly used in previews and Youtube players.
