7 Tools for More Effective Management of your YouTube Channel

Posted at Sep, 29 2022

You may not have known, but by 2020, online videos will account for more than 80% of all consumer internet traffic!

More than 500 million hours of video are seen on YouTube every single day. This is another incredible figure.

The popularity of video is on the rise and is expected to continue to rise.

Take advantage of this trend and use video in your content marketing efforts now.

As a YouTuber or as someone who is contemplating becoming one, this piece is for you.

Listed here are some useful tools for optimizing your YouTube channel.

Channel optimization is made easy with TubeBuddy.

In addition to helping you optimize your YouTube videos and expand your channel, TubeBuddy is an extremely handy browser addon.

It's what I use to make sure all of my videos have the best possible SEO.

TubeBuddy's amazing feature is that it gives you access to a range of SEO tools directly from YouTube's website.

To save time, I use the Bulk Processing tools, which automate repetitive operations like annotating movies, creating cards, and writing descriptions for a large number of them.

It's also a time-saver to get tag recommendations from comparable videos!

Keyword research, on the other hand, is a very important function for optimizing your films for YouTube search.

Using TubeBuddy, you'll get a checklist of the things you need to do in order to get the most out of your video content.

When you submit a video, the tool walks you through a checklist to ensure that all of the boxes may be checked before your movie is made public.

This is the YouTube channel for TubeBuddy.

A free plan is available, but if you want to get the most out of the service, you can upgrade to one of their paid plans.

Agorapulse is a channel management platform.

It's a brand-new feature that AgoraPulse's team just launched. My favorite social media management tool, AgoraPulse, just got better with the addition of Youtube support. You will be able to do the following with the new YouTube administration tools:

Organize all of your video comments in one location.

The ability to reply, hide and evaluate comments is also available, as is the ability to add tags for easier organizing of content.

Useful for finding user-created content about your brand or product.

It has been reported that further new features are coming shortly, including the ability to restrict a user from posting on your channel, as well as to view the individual's comment history.

Use ScreenFlow to enhance your video projects.

For generating and editing videos on a MAC, ScreenFlow is a must-have.

Adding transitions, music, and text and video animations is a snap while you're recording a video.

You can use the tool to animate pictures, titles, and logos, as well as video and text animations.

ScreenFlow has a wide range of features, but it's also quite user-friendly, allowing you to perform simple editing tasks.

If you're not familiar with the advanced features, you'll need to set aside some time for that.

GoAnimate allows you to make animated videos.

In order to produce high-quality animated videos on a budget, Go Animate is a great option to consider.

A drag and drop editor allows you to build your video scene by scene by adding people, scenes, and props.

After choosing a template, you'll have a variety of design components at your disposal to use in your video.

Additionally, you'll be able to add a soundtrack and design your video sequence.

Your competitor's channels can be analyzed with BirdSong.

With a per-report pricing model, Birdsong makes it easy to compare your company's performance against your competitors.

Understanding what works and what doesn't for your competitors' channels can provide you with some ideas on how to better engage your viewers on your own.

You can find out when your competitors' videos get the most likes and comments, what phrases they use the most in their captions, and how the length of the video influences interaction with your content with this tool.

Almost any YouTube channel has access to over 30 different metrics.

Socialblade or Cyfe can be used to analyze your own channel.

You can monitor your entire channel and individual videos with Cyfe, which is one of the greatest methods to keep an eye on things.

When you're ready to get started, you'll need to establish an account and add a YouTube widget to your dashboard.

Configure the widget so it can keep tabs on specific videos or your entire channel's performance next.

A large range of analytics, including views, interaction, viewer retention, traffic sources, and much more, will be available for you to choose from.

The dashboard you set up will be updated in real-time with the information you enter.

Widget for YouTube's overview It's easy to follow the growth of your YouTube channel with Social Blade, a valuable YouTube statistics tracking tool. In addition to tracking subscription and views data, this tool also allows you to keep track of milestones and compare up to three channels side by side. Canva can be used to create video visuals. Canva is a well-known tool for making social media images with a professional appearance. The fact that you don't need to be a designer to utilize it is what made it so successful. Canva's drag-and-drop image editor makes creating images a breeze. You can also use a bank of stock photographs, backgrounds, and designs to help you build your graphics.

What does this have to do with YouTube?

Make your films as appealing as possible if you want more people to click on them (and who doesn't want that!?!). Each video will have a unique thumbnail that you may customize. Unless you utilize a service like Canva, you'll need some design experience to pull this out. Canva makes it simple to design click-compelling thumbnails for YouTube videos, increasing views and clicks.
