Where and how do I upload my video?

First, make sure to add the Startup Grind bumpers at the beginning and end.  Add nothing else - no sponsor logos, etc. Then, upload the video to the Startup Grind Local YouTube account 

To access YouTube - please email ford@startupgrind.com and ask to be given access to the official Startup Grind Local YouTube Account.

Once a CM gives you access to the account you will receive an email from Google Business that will take you to the YouTube Local Account.

Follow these guidelines to properly note your video:

  • Titling, Tagging, and Description: Titling, tagging and writing a good description for your videos is essential for a number of reasons. It helps with content discovery, SEO, and ultimately should tell people a bit about WHY they should be watching our content. By including a brief description of the main focus of your interview, people can browse for applicable subject matter and content. Remember; titles are essential for SEO and Discovery; so try and include keywords in them. Please follow the below guidelines, so we can maintain a uniform standard across our chapters:
    • Title: Speaker Name (Company) -­ Content Headline 
    • Title Example: Derek Andersen (Startup Grind) -­ Building and Scaling a Global Network
  • Event Description: Briefly introduce your Chapter, the guest, and a short discussion of the content. Encourage people to subscribe for more great content. After that, please include the standard description of Startup Grind, which is listed below:
