Do you want to grow on YouTube?

If you’re someone who wants to attract more viewers, more subscribers, and more engagement, you’ve got to optimize your videos for watchability.

Owen Hemsath, the Founder of Owen Video, reveals that one of the biggest mistakes social practitioners make with their video content is that they’ve got tunnel vision for search engine optimization. They’re so focused on optimizing their video content to please the Google gods that they forget to optimize them for the audience that actually matters – humans.

Owen claims that recurring episodic content is hard-wired into the human brain. So, if you want to make YouTube videos, or you want to grow an existing channel, you’ve got to create watchable and binge-worthy videos that present you as an expert and speak to a wider audience.
