Well today the RCSparks studio celebrates having produced another video that has been viewed more than 500,000 times. On this occasion, I think its important to mention to other Youtube RC video producers how a well chosen thumbnail picture can help assist in getting your production – and your RC – viewed by other enthusiasts of the hobby.
This is the video that hit 500,000 views earlier this morning.

Though this video is about a Beast of an Radio Controlled Monster Truck – the model is a Team Associated MGT 8.0 – I wouldn’t really consider this to be “one of my masterpieces” in video land. And really.. the video is almost 2 years old. The 500,000 views did not come “over night”. But.. the views are way above average for the “normal” style of video that it is. I think a culmination of things worked for this video. The Truck, The written messages, the content and the Thumbnail picture I was able use. Not to mention.. you get to see a few jumps.. !
For the people that are choosing which videos to watch while surfing Youtube.. the first thing they see.. and judge the quality of video by – is the Thumbnail Pic that is a Snapshot of the video. Youtube gives the normal producer a choice of 3 description picture that are grabbed from random shots of the video. Try to choose the one with the MOST appeal to YOU! If you like it.. chances are quite a few others will too
Happy producing Everyone!
