The two most important factors that make your videos worth watching are title and description. First of all, you need to be precise and brief when it comes to writing titles. Your titles should not exceed 3 words and 18 characters. This is the best and safest minimum range. It can be more than that but depends upon the video.
Second, comes the description. Descriptions should not be too much longer. You can add details about the relevant video. You can also add some links that you want your followers to click on them. Also, use hashtags if you want to. But on IGTV hash tags are not useful for now. Maybe in the future, hashtags may play a major role.
