Tubebuddy is just a tool, you can't rely on it for views.
I use both tubebuddy and vidIQ because they both have great benefits.
However, you can use tubebuddy for so many things.
Click magnet, A/B testing, try it out and make new decisions on your shorts.
Use all their tools for best results...
I always like to help small channels, mine is one after all.
First off, emojis.
Please don't take this as an offensive word but you do use a little to many emojis.
Directly emojis immediately make the user untrusting and their mouse can't click.
Not to mention they leave less title space
Canva.com is a great thumbnail maker
However it isn't great for "Non-Canva" style thumbnails.
If you are a beginner, i suggest canva.
An intermediate, go for blender
A professional, go for photoshop
