Paul Andre de Vera talks with Jason Barnard about video SEO to launch your YouTube show.

Paul Andre de Vera is the founder and host of the SEO Video Show, a YouTube channel that attracted a thousand subscribers and 4000 hours of watch time in just 6 months!

Creating a YouTube Channel dedicated for live streaming events is a super groovy idea with enormous benefits namely: 

  • Increasing your online reach
  • Collaborate with other industry experts (bringing their audience to your channel)
  • Connecting with your audiences in real time!

But the problem comes when it’s time to launch the channel, grow the subscribers, rank the videos and keep the audience watching until you click the button to end the livestream.

Paul breaks down his awesomely effective strategies starting from his pre-launching activities, to his video SEO tactics, to how he ultra-optimises his YouTube show. So, if you’re planning to launch your YouTube show, this is the podcast episode for you 😉

Hmmm, already launched your YouTube show years ago? Paul says it’s not too late! So you better listen in for the amazing optimisation, engagement and visibility tips he  shares. Paul ends the show with a great boxing-announcer-style presentation of next week’s guest. Super delightful!
