The Best Ways to Promote Your YouTube Channel
YouTube is still the leading video sharing network, second only to Google. Millions of people use YouTube every single day to watch and upload videos. When people get involved in video marketing, they quickly realize that YouTube isn’t just about content; it’s about branding and marketing as well. When people learn to create high quality videos with engaging content, they quickly build their reputation on YouTube. If you want to see more YouTube traffic, this is a must!
The first thing to do as an internet marketer, as an affiliate, to promote your YouTube channel is optimize your channel. What does that mean? That being actually right, top-notch, natural, organic YouTube optimization. Beyond the basic super basics such as choosing the correct YouTube category, selecting the right keywords and giving your contact info all the proper contact info that goes with that, there are some other things you can do in order to enhance the SEO of your youtube channel. And now, without further adieu, here is how to optimize your youtube channel description:
First of all, I’d like to introduce you to the YouTube video description subpage. This is the “home” page of your youtube channel. This will display the description of each video uploaded, and it gives the viewers a quick rundown of what each video is about. For internet marketers, this is a great place to cross promote your website.
The first thing you need to do as an internet marketer, is to create high quality videos with engaging and useful content. Now, here is where it gets interesting! Your first task as an internet marketer is to get your visitor’s attention and retain it. That can be done in so many ways, but one way to do it is by getting their attention and then holding it. An easy way to get your viewer’s attention is through using video ads on your youtube channel. When you place a video ad on your youtube channel, it will get the same exposure that an article or blog post would, but will also be shown to the viewers in order to cross promote your website or product to those who happen to be viewing your channel at the time.
After getting the initial viewer’s attention, you want to hold their interest by creating engaging and informative video content for them. For example, if you are marketing a Harry Potter book, your video content should provide useful information that the audience is interested in. By using Harry Potter videos in your youtube channel, you will increase your popularity and hopefully that of your Harry Potter books and Harry Potter related products. If you do not already have a video sharing program installed on your computer, you should try Google Video, or any other free video uploading program. Once your video is live, start posting it to your channel and making comments along the way.
It is important to consider how you are going to promote your youtube channel once it is live. You can do this through a variety of different methods, but in general you will want to promote it consistently throughout the day, and you will want to do it consistently across all of your social accounts for the brand that you are promoting to. How you promote your youtube videos will depend on what your purpose for the youtube channel is. If you are simply trying to generate sales for your brand by using video ads or articles as part of your youtube channel promotion, you may want to try a more passive approach by never having video ads or articles on your channel. Instead, focus on posting videos on your channel about a particular topic that will draw in traffic to your website. This will generate a higher amount of traffic that is more likely to purchase from you than traffic that comes in after you’ve promoted your brand.
There are two other forms of youtube channel promotion that you may be interested in. The first of these options is called “double-tagging”. This involves getting two different people to post videos on your youtube channel about the same product. With this method you are able to market to two separate demographics at once. The other form of promotion that you have available for your brand’s youtube channel is called the “Google+ circles” feature.
With this feature you are able to upload images and small clips of your brand’s products and services without having to make an upload directly to YouTube. To use this feature all you need to do is go to the google page for your brand and look at the top left corner of the page. Underneath that you will see a “Google+ circles” icon. Click on it and you will be prompted to upload an image or small clip of your item. This is a great way to promote the official store of your brand, because not only do you get a back link to the store, but you also get an image which can be placed onto your store’s online pages and can drive highly targeted traffic to your website.
