A few things to consider…
There are 3 options for your YouTube video:
Public videos are available to everyone on YouTube via search and recommended videos. This is the best choice for your blogs, and general marketing content that you want everyone in the world to see.
Unlisted videos are best for recordings of client sessions, content for online courses or exclusive content for you email subscribers. Basically, if you have given the link to someone they can click through and watch the video.
Private videos are only visible to you and selected people. Personally, I never use this and most of the time when someone is having a problem, they have accidentally chosen “Private” – just don’t use it – that’s my recommendation 🙂
Other stuff you get offered:
In step 2 you get offered End Slides and Cards. Yes, these are cool features, but if you don’t know how to upload a video to YouTube, you aren’t ready for these features. Don’t get FOMO, you can graduate to these extras later.
I have had 150,000 YouTube views WITHOUT cards and end slides so you can go without them for now too.
