When TubeBuddy was acquired by BENlabs in 2020, we combined forces. BENlabs got a powerful tool built by content creators, for content creators. TubeBuddy got the benefit of more than a decade of experience in artificial intelligence (AI).
Tools like Suggested Shorts, YouTube Title Generator, and YouTube Thumbnail Analyzer were the first hints at what is possible when you combine a creator-first mindset with that TubeBuddy AI expertise.
We’ve hinted at what’s in store as we bring that AI expertise to bear with TubeBuddy Beta. The new TubeBuddy experience will bring it home when it launches later this year.
Practice What You Preach
For months, we’ve been playing around with an alpha build of TubeBuddy’s evolution and using it to help hone our creative strategy.
The TubeBuddy YouTube Year in Review for 2023 tells some of that story.
We can’t credit TubeBuddy AI tools with all our growth in 2023, but the insights and ideas we’ve gleaned from having dedicated AI has been helpful.
We’ve been using the TubeBuddy beta to keep an eye on competitors (it’s all love), take inspiration from creators we admire, and to pull insights that TubeBuddy AI helps turn into new data-backed content ideas and inspiration for our own channel.
Even in its current early beta state, the new TubeBuddy is a useful creative partner for YouTube creators. One that can help come up with new content ideas tailored to your niche, that has access to channel-specific data and performance metrics, and that can help understand and target your audience with new content.
There are a lot of performance improvements and feature additions on the TubeBuddy beta experience roadmap…but even in this early stage (warts and all) it’s a helpful and flexible tool, again designed by content creators, for content creators.
