The Creator Playbook is not a collection of rules or guaranteed ‘tricks’ to get more views. Instead, it presents best practices, optimization tips, and suggested strategies for building audience and engagement on YouTube. We’ve tried to frame our suggestions and tips to encourage a variety of uses and to encourage creators to innovate and develop their own approach.
The Creator Playbook is structured into three sections: Programming, Optimization, and Community. Each section presents several optimizations or strategies for building engaged audiences on YouTube. These best practices are explained in stages to help you understand each point and guide you through taking action.
