In this video i’m going to show you how to create a custom youtube thumbnail by using 2 Free Tools that will help you create amazing custom thumbnails.
One huge mistake people make when creating their youtube videos is allowing youtube to automatically create the thumbnail for you.
Yes, this is the easiest way to do it but it’s definitely not the best especially if you are trying to make money with youtube!
In the same way that people with purchase a book based on it’s cover, the same thing happens when people decide on whether or not they click on your video.
They are basing this decision on 2 main factors, the first is your thumbnail and the second factor is your video title; both are important but creating a custom youtube thumbnail is essential because youtube statistics show that 90% of the best performing videos on youtube have custom thumbnails…
The reason is because custom thumbnails are your opportunity to stand out from your competition and you want to do everything you can to make your video thumbnails pop. In most cases, the best way to do this is using an image of a person with a weird or expressive face (if possible).
The next thing you want to do is make sure you use big bold text in your custom thumbnail that catches peoples attention
Another thing you can do is create an outline of the main subject – whether this is a person or a product
Finally, you should try to use high contrasting colors with your text to make sure it really stand out.
Ok so, those are some good tips you should follow when creating your thumbnails, now I want to show you 2 tools you can use to easily create youtube thumbnails for free!
