Attract more Video Views and Stand Out from the YouTube Crowd.

The trick is simple and it involves having a Featured Video.   It’s easy and effective.  And it brings with it a number of benefits.

So here it is – watch the video below for simple instructions showing you how to:

(a) set a Featured Video on your YouTube Channel and

(b) set the Featured Video to Autoplay to increase your video views.


That’s it.  Simple!  Try it out with your channel. The fun of a Featured Video is that it can have many different uses.  You may want to feature a welcome video to the page, or to feature your most recent content.  It is up to you – but it is a great way to showcase information that you feel is relevant to your community.  By having the video on Autoplay, you also get the added advantage of recording an automatic video view when someone comes to your channel, but the best part is that if you plan your content well and keep it interesting and engaging, your viewer will stay and watch.

Have fun with it!
