Even Google shows mixed results for queries—including videos—at the top.

So if, as a brand, your objective is to build brand awareness, you should know how to grow your educational youtube channel.

So how do you build an audience on YouTube?

This blog will show you how to create a strategy that works best for your content and brand.

We’ll also share our top tips for creating engaging videos to keep viewers coming back for more.

1. Choose Topics That Will Help Your YouTube Channel Reach More People

If you’re just starting out with your YouTube channel, you might not know what kind of content you should produce.

You must consider who your audience is and what they care about.

If you already have a successful blog, you can pick up your best-performing blogs and convert them into videos.

Here is an example from our client Hub International, a b2b insurance company that converted its best-performing blogs every month into short animated videos:


If you look at the topic, it's about employee financial wellness.

See how Hub connects it with its solution at the end.

You have to look for problems your target audience might be facing.

Then you need to create content around those topics with relevant keywords.

Another example is from a company called ESRI, a technology company providing GIS mapping software solutions.

This video discusses location intelligence and its applications connected with the company's solution.



2. Make a video that tells a great story

Once you know what you want to talk about, write down a script that tells a story.

It’s essential to tell a story because people love and remember stories.

A story is a sequence of events: problem, solution, transformation, and call to action.

Your video should focus on the core problem you are trying to solve for your people.

And by doing that, you make them care for your content and drive them further into the video.

Then you start mapping your content as a solution to their problem and show the final transformation by adapting that solution.

You end your video with a solid call to action, such as subscribing to your channel or going to your landing page.

The video by starts with how complex is the dating world.

Then as a solution, they offer 10 dating tips that might help the audience. 

The video ends with a call to action to visit the landing page.



3. Optimize The Video for YouTube Search

You need to include your target keyword in the title, description, and tags to optimize your video for search.

Also, experiment with different video thumbnails for better CTR.

You should embed your video on relevant pages or blogs on your website.

You can also create a short teaser or trailer for your other social media channels to divert traffic to your main YouTube video.
