[01:05] VidIQ helps you track your ranking for various keywords. [01:59] YouTube will look at what happens to your video within the first 24 hours. If it doesn’t do well in that time frame, you won’t get promoted. [02:40] When Neil first made YouTube videos, he did well because his viewers had a high watch time. [03:10] Neil used to run paid promotions, but it didn’t do much for him. [03:30] He doesn’t optimize for subscriptions. [03:45] Push your videos in the first 24 hours of posting. [04:10] Neil has a lot of traffic from other countries. [04:20] So, he will send emails at times that work for other countries. [05:06] That’s it for today!
