Now that Autoplay is default on YouTube, here are some quick tips to make the best of it.
Autoplay is a feature that will automatically link to another video after you’ve watched something on YouTube.
1) Have several different videos on your YouTube Channel. Because Autoplay will be nice and auto link your viewers to another video on your channel. But if you only have one- which is an epidemic amongst businesses- then say goodbye to your viewers.
2) Use the Annotations Feature- this will allow you to place links to other YouTube videos directly. That way you can give your viewers a choice.
3) Viewers can still easily skip- so have videos that are entertaining. Don’t put iPhone footage on your channel and expect views. You need professional videos that draw viewers in.
