Why Thumbnails Matter
Think of a thumbnail as your video’s flashy billboard. It’s not just a pretty picture; it’s a powerful marketing tool that can make or break your viewer engagement. Thumbnails are all about catching human eyes. Your thumbnail is a storyteller. It conveys the vibe of your video. Going for a formal tutorial? Let your thumbnail reflect that. More of a fun, behind-the-scenes type? Show off this fun vibe! 📸
Creating Thumbnails – 3 Tips!
- Research Is Key: Scope out the trends in your niche. What’s hot in the world of makeup tutorials or vlog thumbnails? Get inspired, but remember, originality is gold!
- Correct Size Formats: Stick to the right aspect ratios to avoid those pesky black borders. Keep it clean and looking professional.
- A Picture Says a Thousand Words: Use an eye-catching, relevant photo. If it’s from your video, even better – authenticity is always a win!
