Take advantage of the YouTube masses
YouTube has now reached 4 billion video views per day. If you use YouTube for your business, you can target and reach your audience, by creating videos and advertising on other videos that complement your property.
YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine in the world and the 3rd most visited website worldwide, behind only Google and Facebook.
Video-streaming platforms like YouTube have become so vital to marketing, as long as you educate, entertain and provide solutions to your potential guest’s problems, you’re guaranteed to find a group of people who will become your fans and customers.
Using YouTube Will Help You Get Found On Google
Other ways to benefit from YouTube
1. Share your videos
Get other website owners to embed your videos on their websites by cross-promoting with them.
Every time someone embeds your video on their website, Google gives more credibility to your websites.
2. Create a YouTube channel for your brand
When you create a channel for your videos, you are telling YouTube that you are the official representation of your brand on YouTube.
This makes it easier to find you when someone is searching your brand or related terms.
3. Share your videos on other platforms
And encourage others to share. Social media metrics are a factor taken into consideration by Google when ranking pages. If they are high-quality videos, others will share, and this will tell Google that you are producing content that is valuable to your target audience.
4. Give your audience options
Include text, video illustrations and activate closed caption (once you learn how to do this, make sure you check the text to make sure it is accurate). This will increase the overall engagement.
