Mastering the Art of Thumbnails

💁Have you been using default video images as your thumbnails? Well, it’s time you change your method!

👨‍💻 Try to utilize every bit of space wisely and keep the main elements in focus while creating a thumbnail. You can create a mockup page on YouTube to test your thumbnails just to see how they’ll be viewed by your audience.

🤔 Create different versions of thumbnails for a video and swap them out if you feel that your video isn’t doing that well.

Our Take:  There is a reason that YouTubers like Mr.Beast spend as much as $10,000 on thumbnails. While a lot of creators can’t do that, they can certainly start off by creating better and eye-catching thumbnails. Click Here to read Mr.Beast’s Thumbnail Strategy.

Crazy Creator Trivia

Purav Jha, is one of the rising creators in India who has been a familiar face in the videos of Harsh Beniwal. However, a lot of us don’t know that Purav didn’t know Harsh before. In fact, he was a huge fan of Harsh who used to love watching his YouTube videos.

Here’s a story of how things turned around for Purav!

Purav used to create funny videos on TikTok as a student and had networked with quite a few people. One fine day, one of those people told him that Harsh Beniwal is shooting a video and we need a lot of crowd for that, so will you be a part of it?

Purav being the crazy fan he was, said yes. Later, he realized that he also has an exam tomorrow. After a lot of contemplation, he decided to leave the exam and went for the shoot.

On the shoot, Harsh Beniwal asked to the crowd if there was anyone who was ready to jump and fall over the gate for one of the scenes. In a flash, Purav went ahead and said “I will do it”.

He was so excited that during the rehearsal, he fell so hard that he hurt himself. Nonetheless, he didn’t show it on his face and continued to shoot.

After that incident, Harsh started liking him and both of them started talking to each other which eventually led to his casting in Harsh’s videos.

Sometimes crazy fanhood can actually make great careers!

This is called being at the right place at the right time, isn’t it? Check out this clip of him sharing this.
