This is because thumbnails, in combination with titles, are often the biggest deciding factor in whether or not a person will click to watch a video. Due to their overwhelming importance, we at Frederator have put together a guide for creating thumbnails that details the principles and tactics we use when crafting our own thumbnails.
The main goal for our thumbnails is to get our audience, and new audiences, to view our content and then go on to watch more of our content.
We have found that there are three main guiding principles that allow us to achieve this goal. We discovered these principles by the methods I described above and abide by them because they work. We want to engage our online video audience and see it grow. In order to do that, viewers need to actually watch our content. And in order for viewers to actually watch our content, our thumbnails must be exciting and draw in their eyes.
The following tactics, listed in order of importance and value, all incorporate our three principles to varying degrees. Humans have evolved to detect eye contact , making thumbnails with eye contact more eye-catching, especially if the whites of the eyes are visible.
In addition to this, humans communicate in large part by reading emotional cues on the face. To take this one step further, showing strong emotions is also beneficial.
Strong emotions are easily identifiable and makes the viewer feel that same heightened emotion through empathy. When a viewer becomes emotionally connected with something or they want to feel that emotion themselves, they are more likely to click on your video. This in turn draws the viewers eye to the subject again, and makes the subject of the thumbnail pop out even more. Contrast and outlines allow for the subject of the video to stand out against the background.
They also give the subject of the thumbnail a depth of field, making the subject stand out even more. Generally, we try to avoid text on thumbnails. The titles of our videos should be enough copy but in some instances, such as in gaming videos, using text is vital.
When using text we have found that using three to four words maximum is best, making sure the text stands out from the background with a heavy outline or contrasting colors.
Bugs a small logo or watermark and branding are essential for great thumbnails. Since your audience is easily able to identify the video as one of yours, they are more likely to click that video. Consistency, much like using a brand or bug, allows viewers to easily identify your videos. Consistency in thumbnail design includes color pallet, layout, number of subjects, arrangement, font, and other elements. The majority of impressions your thumbnail will receive — whether those impressions are on a mobile device, the related videos column, or the homepage feed — will have very small dimensions.
Therefore, you should design for these small sizes. Its a closeup on the face, features a strong emotion of shock, and is all on a bright blue background:. However, when we shrink it down to the size of most thumbnail impressions, the use of this image as a thumbnail is not very good:. When choosing colors for our thumbnails, we often try to use complementary colors. Complementary colors are colors that are opposite of each other on the color wheel. For example, if the subject of our our thumbnail is blue, such as in this Catbug thumbnail, we choose a yellow and orange background.
In addition, we also sometimes use analogous color patterns colors that are next to or near each other on the color wheel , as these are pleasing to the. We also try to use yellow whenever possible. The performance of thumbnails that include yellow is statistically better than thumbnails without yellow. This is primarily due to the fact that humans only perceive the color yellow when both the M-Cone Green and L-Cone Red are stimulated or essentially when green and red light is mixed.
This causes more receptors in our eyes to trigger, making yellow stand out more. In addition, we have greater sensitivity to yellow light because it occurs at high points in the red and green wavelengths:. Fun fact: This is also one of the reasons school busses, taxis, and caution signs are all yellow. Your thumbnails should be easy to see and understand to the casual viewer.
This means that your thumbnails should visually tell the story of what your video is about. The second thumbnail clearly tells the story of the video, where the first thumbnail does not.
The first thumbnail is dark and does not show the finished product. The second thumbnail is bright and shows the finished product. The second thumbnail visually shows the audience what the video is about a woman making a rainbow cake , where the first thumbnail just shows the audience what happens in the video a hand pouring green stuff onto blue stuff in a pan.
Furthermore, the second thumbnail is visually appealing to an audience a picture of a smiling woman and a delicious looking cake , where the first is not visually appealing someone pouring not-so-delicious-looking liquid into a pan. Not only is it important that a thumbnail represents the video in principle, but in terms of tactics a thumbnail should also represent the first 15 to 30 seconds. This is because of the nature of viewership on YouTube.
If an audience feels duped by a misleading thumbnail, title, or combination of both, they will almost immediately click away. If a video is structured so that the best thumbnail and title combination occurs later in the video, then we suggest either reorganizing the video before uploading, or mentioning at the beginning of the video that the topic of the thumbnail and title will be covered later in the video.
YouTube often covers the lower right hand corner with either a timestamp or a watch later button. The lower right hand corner is also the last place a western viewer will look due to the way that audience reads left to right, top to bottom.
Therefore, avoid placing copy or images in the lower right hand corner. At Frederator, we are constantly looking at the thumbnails of other channels that are making similar content and have similar audiences.
We do this so we can see the kinds of thumbnails our competitors have conditioned their audiences to click. Their thumbnails, by most measures were really great:. The thumbnails these audiences were clicking on showed the toy in full, with muted backgrounds, often with text. They also mostly only showed one toy in each thumbnail. After realizing this, Toy Pizza made some adjustments and began making thumbnails that were appealing and familiar to their target audience, which increased the performance of their videos.
At Frederator we spend a lot of time on our thumbnails. As a result we really want to know how our thumbnails are performing. Unfortunately, there is no thumbnail analytics data available through YouTube analytics. This is a handy tool to compare thumbnails at an extremely low cost a few bucks a day. There are many content types that do not conform to all of these tactics however, they do all conform to the principles.
Some of our favorite exceptions are listed below with examples of great thumbnails from those categories. Every great thumbnail needs an equally great title. Be sure to stay tuned.
