How to set default tags on your YouTube channel

Sometimes saving time on social media can be a lot easier than it sounds. Setting up custom tags is one of those things that can save a lot of time. And this is a request I get a lot from my clients. 

Tags can help your video rank in search results on YouTube, so they're pretty important. But they can take some time to type in every time you upload.

What I suggest in this video is that you select the tags that are your most used, and applicable to the content you're posting, and set those as default. Each time you upload a new video, those default tags will automatically populate. Then you can add tags that are specific to that video. 

For instance, if you're a marketing expert, you might set default tags like marketingbusiness, or digital marketing. But when you upload a training about how to optimize a Facebook Live video, you could add video-specific tags like Facebook, Facebook Live, or video marketing.
