    Hi guys...
    I had a similar thread before but nobody helped!
    I have a YT video which brings me daily sales (from promoting a CB product).. but its Audience retention is almost 28%. almost 40% of visitors leave the video before they reach to second 15!!!
    Here's what google says:
    "Pay close attention to the first 15 seconds of every video--that's when viewers are most likely to drop-off"...

    How can I enclosure those 40% to continue watching? I am thinking about adding an annotation at the beginning of the video, but I am not sure what to write! And I am not sure if it works or not?
    Any idea or experience to share please?

    Thanks for any help.

    P.S I know that he problem is not with my YT thumbnail or the video title...

    Just be carefull not to make your video look spammy with too many annotations.
    Well, learn a lesson and next time, create better hook in your video. Or maybe, if you are promoting oversaturated product, people will close the video, because they've seen that product promoted somewhere else.
