Quick Tips for More Effective YouTube Video Thumbnails

1
Set expectations
— Make your thumbnail a preview of what’s to come. Be true. Clickbait will backfire.
2
Choose great images
— Use a high-quality, vibrant image that looks great at any size and conveys key information about your video.
3
Write a great title
— Keep balance when it comes to titles. Give a guess what’s in the content but also leave come place for curiosity.
4
Choose fonts wisely
— If you add text on your thumbnail, be sure it’s easy to read. Try to use less types of fonts to avoid bulkiness.
5
Check your analytics
— YouTube Analytics will help reveal if your thumbnails and titles match expectations. Review how viewers behave once they start watching.
6
Think about the size
— Your thumbnails will appear at different sizes across YouTube and external sites, so be sure your thumbnail looks good on both mobile and desktop.
