YouTube announced the launch of Playbook Guides today. These are described as a set of resources for content creators, and are available for the Sports, Music, Education, Media Companies, and Nonprofits categories.

"The Creator Playbook is a great resource to learn about best practices on YouTube, but wouldn’t you like to get your hands on a Playbook with tailored tips and strategies specific to the type of content you create? After all, each one of you creates something completely unique," writes YouTube's Lauren Vilders in a blog post. "As a music creator, maybe you’re wondering how to successfully release an album or song on YouTube. Or, if you’re a sports creator, maybe you’re stumped on how to program your content during the off-season. Don’t worry - we’ve got you covered."

The guides come in a set of PDFs - one for each category. Inside, you'll find category overviews, optimization priority lists, guidance for channel launching, branding tips, organizing/uploading instructions, etc.

The guides are graphically rich with plenty of easy to read lists and charts.

YouTube encourages their use alongside of the Creator Playbook.
