“A website like this is every Youtuber's dream because it literally gets you more views. Especially since I'm in such a competitive gaming niche, analytics are super important to study. Having the ability to do tests has saved videos of mine that were underperforming.”

“ThumbnailTest has been an incredible tool for me and my teams as it saves time and lots of guesswork by finding the highest-performance thumbnail for our video and letting it perform the way it should. Could not recommend this tool enough for any person or team that is looking to increase their CTR and views.”

“As a creator who focuses on making and saving money, I have to make intentional decisions about where I want to spend my money in my creative process and Thumbnail Test is a no brainier. It's become such a standard part of my creative workflow that I even use it to test older thumbnails. It's truly worth every penny.”

FAQ

How does it work?

We store all the thumbnails you upload.

Every day at midnight (or every hour throughout the day), we change the thumbnail on your chosen video to the next thumbnail in the list.

At the end of the test, we look back at the click-through rate, views, and other stats each thumbnail got, and give you that data to decide which thumbnail performed the best.

What is A/B Testing?

Normally, an A/B test is when you show 100 people something, 50 see A and 50 see B, then you judge if A or B is better based on their reactions.

Therefore, a thumbnail A/B test means we show thumbnail A for one day/hour, then thumbnail B for one day/hour, and repeat that for a couple weeks.

At the end, we see which thumbnail more people clicked on.

What can I expect from this tool?

This tool is not an "autopilot" function, rather it's a tool to run tests.  

Make different thumbnails, come up with new titles, and then this tool can do the heavy lifting to tell you what’s working.

The best thing you get out of this tool won’t be necessarily views - it will be understanding what your audience actually wants.

Can’t you do this in YouTube already?

Nope!

YouTube has a planned A/B testing feature that's been presented as "coming soon" for the last few years. Besides:

• YouTube's feature is only for thumbnails, not for title (or titles + thumbnails)
• YouTube's feature is only for max 3 thumbnails
• YouTube's feature doesn't give any granular control - you'll only be able to add 3 thumbnails and that's it.

How many videos can I test?

As many as you want. The only limit is one active test per video.
