Schedule your YouTube videos with Metricool

The first thing you need to plan your YouTube content with Metricool is… a Metricool account!

We’ll give you a couple of minutes to create it, which is all you’ll need. 

Now, let’s get to work and schedule your first YouTube video or short with Metricool.

1. Enter Metricool and go to the Planning section at the top.

2. Once in the planner,  select what content you will schedule: a video or a short.

Pay attention to  the two formats:

❇️ Video: Long videos, over 60 seconds and in a horizontal orientation; 

❇️ Short: short videos lasting less than 60 seconds and in a vertical orientation. TikTok or Reels style.

3. Add a cover photo by clicking on the three dots of the video’s thumbnail and clicking on ‘Upload video thumbnail’.

4. Write the description of your video in the text box. You can see how it will look on the right side of the planner.

Note that YouTube hides the description in a submenu if you choose the mobile preview. If you want the preview in Web/Browser, you will be able to see it in full.

5. Finally, in YouTube Settings, choose the title of the video, if you want it to be public or private, if it’s suitable for children, the category of the video, and any tags or mentions.

6. Choose the date and time to publish your video and click ‘Save’. Done!
