Planning Your Video Content | The Ultimate YouTube Planner
When you’re launching a video channel, planning your videos might not come naturally. Even some of the most seasoned YouTubers find themselves all over the place when it comes to getting things edited and uploaded before a deadline.
That’s why it helps to plan videos ahead. And we’re not talking plan the week of. Planning a month or two in advance can really reduce the stress of a lingering deadline just around the corner. Like with it being October and Halloween content is all the buzz right now, those videos could’ve been planned in September and October is spent preparing for the holidays!
With the Ultimate YouTube Planner, that’s like a walk in the park.
Diving into the planner, the key pages rest with the Month at a Glance and Week at a Glance views which are sectioned off by each month. Let’s take a closer look.
The Month at a Glance page is where you get a bird’s eye view of what’s going up for a specific month. Each week in this view provides space for up to three video uploads. On the left side, you’ll write down the titles for the videos. The right side has checkboxes to track completion of video production and thumbnail creations.
Intermediate and expert video content creators may develop a theme for each month. That’s where the top of the page comes into play. Write down your focus that the videos will cover for that month. For example, gratitude or family and friends could be a focus for the month ahead!
The Week at a Glance view is where you can….
- Assign upload dates
- Track the progress of the video’s creation
- Take notes of what bullet points you need to hit in the video
The promotional planning side of video content used to be something that we fused with the Week at a Glance view, but after pondering it over and testing, we decided to split the two and add more pages specifically for promotional planning. Check off where the video will be pushed. You can have it sent out to your mailing list, publish it in a blog post, post on social channels, etc. Because there are so many channels to push content through, this area is important. It’s easy to think I’ve posted it everywhere and then realize you forgot to send the link out in a tweet (if applicable).
