Hello and welcome to the channel. Today, I am going to show you how I use Notion to increase my workflow. So let’s go over the computer and pull up my Notion account. Let’s start with my Video Production page. I want to take a moment to explain how I setup Notion. I have broken down all aspects of video production into different pages. Be sure to stay till the end where I show you the one page that I use every day. Let me give you a hint. The main page I use is a database, so don’t go anywhere.
Let’s start with the camera settings. This page is a list of the steps necessary to get the best Video possible. It is easy to forget a step during the video production process. Now let’s go back to the main page.
The next page I have created is a collaborations page. I use this checklist when I am reaching out to potential YouTubers for possible collaborations. Next up is the descriptions page.
As you can see, I have another checklist that I use when I go to write my descriptions for my videos. Now let’s go to the heart of my productivity system. The page that I use almost daily. My production Schedule.
Yes, this is not a checklist. I created a database to keep track of my videos and podcasts that I have made. All databases have a numbering system to keep track of the entries. I also use a numbering system for my podcast. I wanted to keep using the same numbering system for both the podcast and YouTube. It just makes my life easier.
Now, I needed a way to track the videos scheduled release date. Therefore, I created a column called release date on the database. The optimized title is the title of the Video. I also wanted to keep track of the different categories that I have for the videos. That way I can use it later to determine which categories are the most popular. Now you may be wondering what the blog column is for. Well, I use the blog column because all my videos and podcasts are also on my website and written up as a blog post. Up next is the date I recorded the video
I keep track of whether nor not the Video has been recorded. In order to be as efficient as possible I usually record multiple videos at a time. This saves me a lot of setup time as I do not have a dedicated recording studio.
In order to remember where I left off, I have added a column for Video edited. I use this column for both the podcast and YouTube episodes. Then I also have added an upload column.
Now I have added a unique column called Tubebuddy Score, which is used to tracks the search volume and the competition on the titles for the videos. This provides me with an idea of how popular the Video may be.
The last column has to do with keywords used to optimize the podcast and YouTube videos for Google search. It is search engine optimization for each episode.
As you can tell, I have created many checklists and a database to track my podcast and YouTube episodes. Although this is not everything that I currently use Notion for, it is the majority.
Now, I have not created any fancy checklists or databases that others have done. I have no interest in making these pages fancy. As long as it tracks or provides the lists that I need to be a creator is all that matters to me.
Leave me a comment below if you use Notion and how you use it. In the meantime, please hit that subscribe and like button. Don’t forget to hit that notification bell so that YouTube notifies you when I release new content.
