This project will potentially lead to MANY other thumbnail projects for hundreds of videos - we are the number 1 Dating advice company in the german market:
We have super high-quality video interviews with female playboy models about dating psychology.
An example video is here:
Headline on the thumbnail is in German:
3 Schritte Frauen Ansprech Formel (3 Step Approach Women Formula)
12 Top Tipps zum Frauen kriegen mit Playboy Model Anneta Negare (12 Top Tips to get women with Playboy Model Annetta Negare)
We are looking for an insanely high clickthrough Youtube Video Thumbnail Template for our videos. Our Click Rate is too low on youtube and this is very bad for our traffic.
If absolutely necessary we are open to delete the text with the "12 Top Tips" line and instead do less text like for example:
3 Step Formula
Approach ANY women
...but this is just an example of one thumbnail.
One major design mistake here is to just look at the thumbnail on your big screen - we need you to show how in a row on the left hand side in youtube between all other youtube thumbnails ours will stick out like a sore thumb.
Only then you can see how it looks like (dimensions will be much smaller) and a lot of competition will be above and below it.
I have uploaded a screenshot of one of our videos playing and on the right side you see several suggested thumbnails; you will need to swap yours out with any of those then we can see exactly how it would look like.

You can play with the shape of the thumbnail, the women in the video, with the text...we need you to do whatever needed to make it stick out like crazy between all other thumbnails.
We suggest the text is very narrow so that we can fit in more information. It has to draw attention like crazy and make you want to click.
If you get this right you can finalize hundreds of other thumbnails for us!
PS: YouTube Thumbnail Dimensions
Optimize your YouTube thumbnails with these dimensions: 1280 pixels wide by 720 pixels tall, with a minimum width of 640 pixels. A ratio of 16:9 is ideal as it's used most often in YouTube players and previews.
