How to Increase Youtube Click-Through Rate Tutorial


Recently, I’ve been working on my Youtube channel…

While doing this, I’ve noticed one crucial factor that’s pivotal to growing your channel.

That is, click-through rate is absolutely vital if you want rapid channel growth.

Don’t get me wrong – content is key, but click-through rate is equally important too.

So the question is…

How do you increase Youtube click-through rates?

Well, there’s 3 ways you can do this, which are:

    • Topic
    • Title
    • Thumbnail

…Or as I like to call it, the 3T Formula 🙂

But yeah, when you combine 3T with a high watch time, expect huge growth every time…

This is because you’re keeping people on the Youtube platform longer which will make Youtube more money.

In turn, Youtube will reward you by:

    • Ranking your videos higher in the Youtube search results
    • Youtube will promote your videos on the homepage to millions of their users

So never underestimate click-through rate as it’s crucial to your channel’s growth.

…And the best way to achieve a high click-through rate is by using this simple 3T Formula.

So you’re probably wondering…

How to implement the 3T Formula to increase Youtube click-through rates

Well, in this part I’m going to break down the 3 components and the best way to implement them.

So after going through this, you should get the highest CTR possible for your Youtube videos.

With that said, lets begin…


Topic is more important in the short term than it is in the long term.

Reason being, the first people exposed to your videos are your subscribers…

So if your video is on a topic they’re not interested, they’ll simply not click on your video.

This in turn will lower your click-through rate which will make Youtube promote your video less.

However, in the long term it’s less important. Here’s why…

After posting your video – and it’s been exposed to your subscribers – Youtube will then start to find the best place to promote your video.

Obviously, when this happens, your click-through rate will go up as Youtube starts to locate the target audience.

So you can post videos on niche topics but it’ll take considerably longer for them to get momentum.

When I’ve posted videos on niche topics, it’s taken up to 7 months for Youtube to locate its target audience.

So keep that in mind videos on niche topics will have a lower click-through rate, initially.

But after a few months, Youtube will find its target audience and the click-through rate will rise along with its views.

…That’s providing you’ve got the rest of the 3T Formula in check, that is.


This is simple stuff, really…

People read the title – and if they like what they read – they’re more likely to click the video.

Now if you’re not sure how to create an enticing title that makes people click, here’s some pointers…

    • Make your titles benefit driven
    • Arouse curiosity
    • Use fear or bad news

Just keep in mind you’ll need to optimise your title for a keyword as well.

So creating a Youtube title with a high click-through rate while optimising it for a keyword can be a juggling act, sometimes.

As a result, you may need to sacrifice one or the other as you only have a 100 character limit to work with.

By the way, if you don’t know how to do keyword research for your videos, checkout my free training here:

Anyway, that’s how to increase Youtube click-through rate when it comes to your title.


When it comes to increasing your Youtube click-through rate, thumbnails are probably the most important factor.

Seriously, you can have the best title in the world, but if your thumbnail sucks, then your CTR will suffer, massively.

So how do you create an eye-catching thumbnail with a high click-through rate?

Well for this one, I have some training you can checkout on how to create Youtube thumbnails with a high click-through rate.

You can check it out here:

It’s a short video and it’ll show you everything you need to know on creating a thumbnail with a high click-through rate.

That’s how to increase click-through rates for your Youtube videos using my 3T Formula

It’s very simple yet effective stuff, all you need to do now is to put it into action.

As always, don’t expect overnight results – this stuff takes time but the payoff is definitely worth it.

So give it a whirl and let me know how it goes for you.

Also, if you’ve got any additional methods to boost Youtube click-through rates, I’m all ears…

At the end of the day, I’m always on the lookout for new methods so feel free to share any I haven’t mentioned here.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you in my next post soon 🙂
