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.

  • 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
