During this part of the segment, Erik mentioned Crop Video. This tool allows you to upload landscape video to the browser-based video editor, crop it perfectly for vertical or square video, and export your cropped video. You can listen to The Social Media Marketing Podcast to hear more about it.
Study Reports YouTube's Trending Section Disadvantageous to Creators: Using data crowdsourced from 40,000 videos, a new study reveals that creators need to reach about 11 million views on a video before it is shown in the Trending section. In comparison, segments from TV shows like The Tonight Show or Jimmy Kimmel Live only need a couple hundred thousand views to be shown in the Trending section.
