Most people neglect this step but it is extremely important.  Remember, you are essentially talking to Youtubers algorithm so you are telling it what your video is about.
Make sure you include at minimal a summary describing what the video is about and include variations of your keywords.
Also, don’t forget to add any relevant links here.  This is typically where your call to action in your video directs they viewers to.  This could be some type of lead magnet with an opt in form or free course etc.  It could also be a link to your website or blog post where-ever you want to drive traffic to.
