When it comes to search engines, YouTube is number two, right behind Google ~ James Martell
Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
When used properly, YouTube can be a powerful tool in getting the word out about your business faster than nearly any other social media network. In May 2011, YouTube reported on its company blog that it received more than three billion views per day. Just seven months later in January 2012, YouTube stated that figure had increased to more than six billion views per day*. That number continues to grow everyday and that means big money for businesses who utilize YouTube as part of their marketing strategy.
James Martell, VP of Business Development for The School of Internet Marketing, interviewed Dan Maynard, author of Video Traffic Adrenaline - Essential Guide to Generating Leads for Small Business, for his weekly podcast. Dan is an expert in video SEO with a focus on YouTube. He is renowned for developing top rankings in YouTube and teaches students to do the same as an instructor of Video Traffic Adrenaline at the The School of Internet Marketing.
During the podcast, Dan discussed the amazing benefits of including YouTube in a small business marketing strategy including:
- Helping to not only establish, but to build brand awareness
- Giving your business some personality by letting potential customers see you as a "real person"
- Videos are extremely mobile-friendly - definitely more than text and can be easily viewed on small phone screens
- Allowing a business to showcase products to a wider geographic audience
- Marketing on a shoestring budget - the cost of creating videos is extremely low and can fit into any size marketing budget
Another important topic that Dan takes on during the podcast is getting videos ranked for keywords that will spell success. YouTube is so powerful to business owners because it allows them to drive large numbers of potential customers to your website - and then spend their money with you. Signing up for an account with YouTube is totally free and there are no costs for uploading videos and using keywords to optimize them and getting them noticed.
Dan gives a real-life example of the power of YouTube with a case study on an actual business owner who decided to designate the money he was spending each month on traditional advertising to create a video. Dan outlines why this was such a smart move for the business owner - and how he benefitted from it. This is real advice and experience that can be applied to any business' marketing plan.
"The right time to do video is now because cameras are so inexpensive and YouTube is free!" - Dan Maynard
"When it comes to search engines, YouTube is number two, right behind Google," said James Martell, VP of Business Development for the Internet School of Marketing. "People watch more than one billion views a day on YouTube mobile. This podcast will help a small business learn how to make their videos account for some of those views ."
