I was tired yesterday evening. That annoys me because it stops me from working on my computer or chipping away at a project that matters to me.
Anyway, what’s my point?
It’s that even when I’m tired I find a way to learn something new.
Take YouTube last night, I spent hours exploring all the little nooks and crannies in their platform.
Then, to make matters funner … I explored the plugin TUBE BUDDY (TB) that helps you navigate, manage and use YouTube in an easier fashion.
TB also has some awesome automation features too including my favourite from last night:
THE ABILITY TO ADD A BLOCK OF TEXT TO THE TOP OR BOTTOM OF ALL VIDEO DESCRIPTIONS – AT ONCE!
It also lets you remove that same block of text or change it with a click of one button. It’s called the “Vid2VidPromotion” feature and damn it’s cool because it saves me hours of editing.
Now I can cross promote a video in all my other videos with one click.
The text is customizable and the way I’m using it currently is to promote the latest video from the Smartcar Coffee Confidential show!
Yup, that means each week ALL my 100+ video descriptions are updated to include a soft sell message with encouragement to check out the latest episode or trailer from the show.
Next week I’ll change them all again with one click.
PS. To get a sense of how valuable this is, imagine editing 100+ videos manually. If it takes just 1 minute per edit cycle (not unreasonable) then your saving 1hr 40mins for every 100 videos you need to edit!
