How To Take Advantage Of The YouTube Community Tab!

Updated: Jun 30, 2023

If you’ve been around YouTube in the past few months then you would have heard of the Community tab. Today we have started to roll it out to all of our creators and we’re going to give you some top tips on the best ways to use it!

YouTube Community Tab How To

To give a brief overview of the tab, it’s a fun and new way to share your creativity all while interacting with your audience on YouTube. The tab can be used for things such as asking your subscribers for input on your next video with a poll as well as teasing the best moment from a recently uploaded video by sharing a GIF!

Have a video idea but want to get feedback from your audience first?

Well now you can! The quick and easy process of making a post asking your audience's opinion is a smart idea. Your audience can comment their opinions on your post in the community tab, leaving you with great feedback! You can even heart comments from viewers or reply to them with images and GIFs.

Increasing engagement is key!

With the Community Tab you can make use of it to highlight live streams, promote events you’re attending and even cross-promote between channels. This helps to keep your subscribers up to date and informed with what you are doing. The Community tab provides a great opportunity to keep your channel organised as well as keeping your audience in the know.

The New Community Tab Changes The Way You Engage With Your Fans!

Use the Poll feature to get your subscribers input on something!  

Maybe you are stuck between the idea of a Video or Live stream? Ask your audience to vote on the poll and see which one comes out on top. This is a great way to increase engagement for the channel as well as see what your audience are looking for.

Make sure to inform your audience about the Community tab!

As the feature is new, most viewers will not be aware of it straight away. It can help to inform subscribers on what it is and where they can find it. You can explain to them that they’ll start seeing new pictures, polls, GIFs and much more in their subscription feed.

Having a posting schedule for the community tab can also help to increase returning traffic to the page. Aligning your video or live stream schedule with the community tab can go a long way to increasing engagement.

Kickstart your Community tab!

Give your audience exclusive access to some of your behind the scenes areas that aren’t normally shown on the channel. Consider posting pictures of what videos you have been working on as well as featuring exclusive content that your audience can't find anywhere else. If you can offer unique experiences in your Community tab then it will go a long way to making subscribers return for more.

Hello, I just recently started using the "Community" tab on my YouTube channel because I thought it was useless before. But lately I've been posting short previews of my videos there, it's not bad at all, only I have to convert the wob video to 3GPP before uploading. If you also want to upload thumbnails to the community, please use 3GPP converter to change the format of your original video.
