Today we’re going to talk about how to upload a video to YouTube. YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine and many Google searches will pull up Youtube videos.

When you get to your home page of your YouTube channel you’ll want to look on the upper right hand corner for the upward arrow.
Click on that upload arrow to start your upload.

You’ll see the privacy settings are there where you can select to upload the video as public, unlisted, private or scheduled. We always suggest you schedule a head to stay consistent.

After choosing your privacy setting, click on the middle of the screen to upload your video. This is where organization is key.

As the video is uploading you’re going to want to complete the 9 steps to YouTube Optimization to get the most potential for organic search. Once again those are:
1. Custom Thumbnail

3. Full Description
4. Full set of Tags
