How to Use Power Words

  • Try to use at least one Power Word in each of your video titles.
  • For greatest impact, include a Power Word right at the start of your video title.
  • Capitalizing the Power Word(s) can work very well. SSSniperWolf does this in a few of her video titles (example: Spoiled RICH Kids on Tik Tok). Note that she also mixes things up - sometimes she capitalizes all of the title.
  • Don't be afraid to use different tenses, singular or plural or word forms of this list of Power Words. For example the original list contains Announcing but I have noticed that Announcement is a VERY powerful word when used by the channels I subscribe to (I almost always watch announcements!).
  • Remember that you can use additional Power Words as captions on your thumbnail. You don't need to repeat the words used in your text title. Different Power Words can appear that help explain what your video is about. Many of these Power Words are so strong you don't need to use them in a complete sentence on your thumbnail. For example you can just use a Power Word like this: Affordable???, AGONY!, Awkward!.
