PLAYLISTS – How to Reorder Videos in a YouTube Playlist and Choose a Thumbnail (with video)

In this video, I’m assuming you’ve already created some playlists on YouTube, grouping similar videos. Once you add videos to a playlist, you can always change the order in which they play.

How to Use YouTube’s InVideo Programming Feature to Display a Video Link Across All Videos

With YouTube’s feature, InVideo Programming, you can drive viewership to a specific video and also reinforce channel branding across all your videos. For example, toward the end of all my videos, a thumbnail of another video appears with a link to it. I set this up once, and it happens across all videos. I also have the option of adding my company or channel logo across all videos.

Here’s how to set it and forget it…until you want to highlight something different.

How to Create, Add To, Delete From, and Rearrange YouTube Playlists (with video)

For better organization of your YouTube videos and to improve your viewers’ experience, use playlists to group similar ones. From the YouTube Playbook, “You can create playlists using your own content, other channels’ videos, or a combination of both. Playlists can be used as an organizational tool and creators can create playlists as a linear viewing experience for their audience. Playlists can be featured on your channel, linked-to via annotations, and appear in search results and suggested videos.

Playlists should be an essential part of your channel strategy to increase watch-time and develop a programmed experience for your viewer.”

Here’s how to work with playlists on YouTube.

How to Make Changes to Multiple YouTube Video Descriptions (and More) At Once

Have you wanted to add a URL or some additional contact information to your video descriptions on YouTube? Perhaps you’ve wanted to change monetization or some other setting to multiple videos. You’ll be delighted to discover that you don’t have to change each video individually!

This video shows you  how to make multiple changes at once.

Now isn’t that just the best time saver?!

Note: You can also change your video defaults. For example, when I upload a new video to YouTube, I have some details on how to CONNECT WITH US in the video description. This information appears automatically.



How to LIKE, SHARE, and SUBSCRIBE TO Videos on YouTube (with video)

My goal is to record more how to videos and increase my subscriber base, Likes, and Shares and YouTube. When you watch my videos, LIKE it with a thumbs up, SHARE with your social network, and SUBSCRIBE to my channel so you’ll know first when I’ve added more. Here’s a how-to video I made to show you how. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CLICK.

IMPORTANT: Don’t click the Facebook SHARE icon to place on your wall because a Share option will not appear with the video, so your friends can’t share (unless they click the timestamp on the update…which most people don’t know to do this).

COPY and PASTE the video URL instead.


Thank you. PEACE.

How to Set Defaults on YouTube and Save Time During Video Uploads (with video)

When you upload a video on YouTube, you can already have defaults set so you don’t have to keep making the same changes. For example, when I upload a new video, I want it to stay private until after I add my annotations; I have text I want in every description; my category is always the same Science and Technology, and so on. I can always change this on individual videos when needed.

Here’s a video I just recorded that will show you how to set this up.

No Land Line? Bad Reception on Cell Phone? Here’s a $2.99 Solution

I got rid of my land line at least two years ago and haven’t missed it because I don’t talk on the phone often, and I travel a lot. But when I’m home and do want to talk, I’d have to stand in the doorway of my kitchen and hold my head at a certain angle. Otherwise, the reception would be spotty and, eventually, the call would be dropped.

DING! Problem solved. I signed up for unlimited calls using Skype for $2.99 a month. I can call land lines and cell phones in the US and Canada and talk as long as I want. They also have plans for calling other countries. I could use a headset with mic, but most of the time, I use my external microphone and speakers that I usually have connected to my laptop.

Calls are crystal clear, and I’m hands-free!

SMH. Couldn’t believe I’m just now setting this up. That is what I call a digital breakthrough.
