As many of you know, getting your videos viewed by a huge audience is a combination of a few things:
- Building a highly-engaged following of subscribers
- Optimizing your titles, tags and content for YouTube's search engine and recommendation
- ... and making highly relevant content for NOW!
The most successful vloggers know weeks ahead of time what is going to be the most top-of-mind for their type of audience, which makes planning your content calendar around events like holidays, back-to-school events and seasonal trends so important!
