These tools provide insights into search volume, competition, and related keywords, helping you to target the right keywords that align with your video content and audience.

However, coming up with a series for a specific topic can be challenging. With ChatGPT, you can put together a step-by-step video playlist for your subscribers.
Look at the example prompt below where I ask for a 15-part video series related to Pinterest Ads. You can remove any part that seems unrelated and ask for a longer series.
