Templates For YouTube Scriptwriters

I’m giving away the exact templates I use to write scripts for people like Ali Abdaal, Creator Booth, and other successful YouTubers.

I’ve used these templates on scripts that have reached over 1,000,000 views. Now you can use them too.

YouTube Script Template (Includes Repurposing Segment)



Free Through Gumroad

This is the template I use to write scripts for Ali Abdaal, Creator Booth, and other successful YouTubers. It's designed with simplicity in mind.

Writing YouTube scripts can get messy. Before creating this template, I used to:

  • Dive straight into writing the script before a proper title and thumbnail brainstorm.
  • Write scripts without really considering what my aims were at key points in the video.
  • Not bother repurposing content because I didn’t know the best way to lay it out.

This template streamlined the way I wrote scripts for YouTubers.

It does nothing groundbreaking.

It simply lays out a clean space to brainstorm titles, construct your script, and effortlessly repurpose the content for other platforms.


  1. Title and thumbnail brainstorming section.
  2. Script layout, broken into four key segments.
  3. Repurposing space for converting the video into tweets, Shorts and YouTube Community posts.

Other features:

  • A brief summary of what you should be aiming to achieve with each aspect of the script.
  • Utilises my ‘Title Length Checker‘ to make sure your video titles aren’t too long.

YouTube Title Length Checker


Free Through Gumroad

A simple table in Notion, designed to give you a nudge if your title is too long to display fully across all devices.

It also includes the link to a super useful website which shows you a preview of how your title and thumbnail will look across different displays (mobile vs desktop, homepage vs up next, etc)

This template is integrated into my YouTube Script Template (+ Repurposing Segment), which is also free.

I would also highly recommend Jake Thomas from Creator Hooks for incredible tips on writing better titles.
