Here is my thumbnail from my latest video. Thumbnail creating is now part of the workflow. It's as important as the video itself!

Update. Here is the Title of the Video for context: Sony a7siii: What We Know So Far and Why I Might Not Be Getting It

What are your thoughts? what we know about the sony a7siii and why i might not get it-1.jpg

Awesome... striking colors, but I don’t really know what it is about exactly, if you want to play the mystery card it will do a good job.

Thanks! The title of the video is "Sony a7siii: What we know about it" I hope the thumb and the title complement each other.

Hi.. I like the pic but if someone is asking you what your thumbnail means .. then your Thumbnail is Incomplete. That's the reason why people are asking to add a little text to it.

We often scroll so fast that we may not read the title. Just the pic. SO ..., good work on thumbnail.. just small text about content would be great. All the Best !!

Looks good. But a small suggestion is to add text right or left to the pic.
Thanks. So far my CTR for this is through the roof since the Title of the video tells you what this video is about. The thumbnail adds that bit of suspense and I guess it's making people click. :)

It looks great, Just need to add bit information texts on it:yum:yum

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah I see what people mean regarding the text. But so far this thumbnail has the highest CTR in any of my recent videos. It's probably the combo of text and thumbnail. Who knows but I will definitely be testing whether text or no text works best. I know some niches do better with no text as long as you have a compelling title and a very high impact/quality image.

What are the current impressions and CTR?

Great looking thumbnail :)
Though I think the coloring on your face is quite... orange XD

I like the thumbnail though for me I find the part where you're blurred a bit off-putting. You blend into the background too much. But that's just me. Still think the thumbnail loof great.

Yes that's true and thank you!

Thanks! It's about 12% right now and yes that's on purpose. I over saturate it to help draw some attention to it. :)

I updated the post to reflect the title for more context. ;)

I like it, but what is the video title I feel that helps with context of the thumbnail :)
Thanks Andrew and oops, I edited the post to include the Title. ;)
