vidIQ Academy: It’s all about VPH,baby!

Hi Jon,
Views Per Hour (VPH) aka view velocity is a great way to determine which videos are taking off to become viral. You can use vidIQ to keep tabs on your videos and your competitors.
[Inline Image] VPH is also important to Youtube search rankings because it tells YouTube which videos are trending, surfacing them more frequently all over the site.
Quick Tip! VPH updates over time so even if a video is older you can still see if viewership is heating up! With Pro you can also detect which videos are achieving the highest VPH. Rob and Team vidIQ

vidIQ Academy: Get with the Program

Hi Jon,
Scheduling videos to release at a regular cadence helps build anticipation and encourages your viewers to subscribe to your channel. It seems simple, but think about itif you know there’s going to be regular updates or episodes of your favorite shows you’re going to want to know about it.
[Inline Image] Hold yer horses! Just programming on a schedule isn’t enough, you need to let your fans know. There are tons of ways to do this, but here are some of the ones we recommend:

Talk about upcoming videos in your videos: Remind viewers in your videos by talking about when new content is coming out.
Include it in the video’s title and description: Do you release a new video on Mondays? Then work Weekly or Every Monday into the title and description.
Use annotations: Oops! You forgot to mention your next release in a video. No problem, tell viewers when the next video is releasing in annotations.
Create a Welcome video: Create a quick clip to feature on your channel that tells viewers what content to expect when and why they should subscribe to your channel.
Include it in your creative: Update your channel banner and create custom thumbnails that display what content releases on what days.

Quick Tip! Start slow_ There’s no need to schedule content on everyday of the week; consistency is more important than quantity!
