When creating playlists for your YouTube channel, don’t hold back. A well-organized channel is a useful channel, giving viewers the option (and the motivation) to stick around longer, browse related videos, and get more interested in your brand. Based on our research of over 3,500 businesses who use YouTube, we found that the most successful channels have five times as many playlists as the least successful.
Keep in mind that you can also include other users’ videos in your playlists. This can be a good way to engage your community. For example, if your business is a pharmaceutical company, you might want to include a playlist of carefully curated videos of people speaking about a relevant illness.
Incorporate playlists into your marketing campaigns and use them as a way to group related content, saving your viewers time filtering through other content that might impede a call-to-action. Both Google and YouTube recognize a hot playlist, which will help your search marketing efforts.
