YouTube has over 2 billion monthly active users, making it an excellent platform for reaching a wide audience and driving engagement. Videos posted on the platform can show up in Google search results, which can help improve your brand’s visibility and reach.
Videos are an excellent way to tell stories and showcase your brand’s personality, products, and services in a visual and engaging way. YouTube can be a great way to diversify your social media content and reach audiences who prefer to consume content in video form.
In order to cater to such needs of our users we have integrated YouTube in RecurPost. Let’s explore more information about YouTube offerings inside RecurPost.
Does RecurPost allow you to schedule YouTube videos?
RecurPost now allows its users to schedule and post videos to YouTube, which it did not previously. This scheduling feature will allow you to entirely automate your YouTube marketing operation. The simple utilization of video material will allow you to gain more visibility on social media.
Schedule YouTube Videos and Shorts with RecurPost.
Users of RecurPost can now schedule videos on YouTube. From the dashboard that is built into the tool, you may publish both ordinary videos and YouTube Shorts. You may fully automate your YouTube marketing with the help of this scheduling feature. You will be able to gain more visibility on social media thanks to the simplicity of using video material.
Does RecurPost allow publishing YouTube Shorts?
Yes, you may use the tool’s integrated dashboard to publish both standard videos and Shorts. However, you do not need to mention the type of video when scheduling it. RecurPost will detect whether it is a Shorts or a regular video and publish it accordingly.
These are the requirements for a video to be designated as a YouTube Shorts. It must be aligned vertically. The video must be no more than 60 seconds in length. When a video meets these requirements, RecurPost will classify it as Shorts.
The standards for a standard video vary slightly. The recommended aspect ratio for a standard YouTube video is 16:9. A typical video can last up to 12 hours on a verified channel and 15 minutes on an unconfirmed channel.
What are YouTube shorts?
Users watch billions of YouTube Shorts every day, which is a relatively new feature that has taken the internet by storm. It is easy to understand why, as its brief and concise approach is ideal for our attention-deficit society.
These vertical movies, which are typically 60 seconds or fewer, are like those on sites like TikTok and Instagram Reels.
Shorts can be made with the YouTube app’s Shorts camera or by uploading already shot vertical videos. Because of the growing popularity of short-form video content on social media, Shorts seeks to give producers a platform to show off their originality and connect with new audiences.
