Nielsen NetRatings reported that in 2008 YouTube more than 68 million unique visitors per month, and the sixth largest group of viewers in the United States (for eBay, Amazon and Wikipedia). More than 2/3 of the U.S. population over 25 has seen a YouTube video and 91% of users have bought something online. YouTube is a very powerful marketing channels and opportunities for exposure on the web. There are ways to tap into this vast audience with a big ad spend, but I will focus on low prices “organic” tactics. These take time, but not a direct cash expenditure. For the purposes of this article I will assume you have a branded YouTube channel created and are now looking for ways they can expand the channel to reach and increase the customer base. (If you’re new to YouTube and not on your channel was built, the YouTube Help Center is a good starting point.).
The first step to the effectiveness of your YouTube channel to maximize is to take a step back and your goal for marketing on YouTube investigations. It is the traffic, sales, brand? After the establishment of a solid object, you can start sharing a specific plan. Your channel design should be your goal, and you must regularly take a look at your layout, logos, pictures and profile information. Ensure that the design properly reflects your brand and message. Think about your YouTube channel as an extension of your site, so it should look exactly like the look and feel of your website and business materials. Enter information in your profile that the type of content that can be found in your channel and the website describes. Also you must visit your site and contact information to link outside YouTube. It also makes it known in your profile that you want to evaluate your comments, add the broth and add video responses to subscribe to your channel.
If you have video content to add to your channel, make sure that each video has a clear and not vague and confused. Keep your content fresh and loading a constant supply of 1-2 new videos a week on the same program, so your subscribers when new content is expected to know. Often update the video of the moment. You have the ability to nine videos on your channel and you can change the order and location of your videos interesting to check. You can also the playlist as a way to organize your videos. Based on themes from the songs to help users and subscribers find videos that keep the content, which might not immediately say. Also pay attention to the quality of your videos. YouTube has the ability to display video at a higher level of quality. The quality of the uploaded videos with each variety is tailored to the audience to decide whether the video is displayed in a higher quality. Higher quality videos means improved sharpness and visual clarity. The difference is especially noticeable in videos that contain text or fast movement and in full screen mode. When a video to load, make sure the video resolution is 480 x 360 or higher and a framerate of 24 fps (frames per second) or higher.
Each time a new video, pay particular attention to the nature of the videos you in the past and VSEO (Video Search Engine Optimization). Copy the size and theme of the video to a lot of views, comments and reviews to try new, they have success. Use specific keywords in the title that people watch on YouTube and external search engines. Also make sure that the keyword rich description, specifications, and give credit to students in the video (the same applies for the position). In this way people who do not know can search the title of the video by the name of the party or the position and the videos are in the search results. I would also recommend posting your video to the right, the corresponding category (as opposed to the belief that you can view by going to manipulate video in another category). If you try to drive traffic to your website YouTube, the link to your website on top of the description of your video contains, the link will be displayed directly under the title of the video. Another tactic is effective when you upload new videos to your channel to watch the video annotation to use. Video Annotations are a new way of adding comments to your videos interactive. You control what the annotations say, where they appear on the screen, and when they appear and disappear. Comments appear as pop-up balloons (text fields), and screen overlays. You can also connect to a note on another YouTube video, channel, or search result. Comments are effective in keeping users by linking to your video and other channels so that they remain committed to focus on content.
After optimizing the channel design, message, organization, rate videos, video, SEO and website link, you are ready to expand the customer base. The key to successful marketing on YouTube is a large customer base. Subscribers will serve as evangelists for the content and your target validation. It increases the number of your views, rate videos, comment, add your favorites, share with their friends and, finally, more traffic and exposure to your site / brand. Moreover, the content by means of a number of channels with a larger subscriber friend and more weight in terms of video and popularity ranking. YouTube has built their machine so that the subscribers must be earned. For someone who subscribe to the channel you must first ask a friend to invite them to be. Once accepted your friend invitation, you can request to subscribe to your channel. The key is to get as many people to invite to become friends. To find these potential friends for the most popular channels continue, because these people tend to be more active on YouTube.
Furthermore, participation in the group of functions is a great way to make friends and exposure. Add groups is an effective way to convey to people in certain subjects and ideas, which can ultimately lead to more friends and subscribers interested. It is also very easy to create a new group on YouTube to create to attract like-minded users. When a new group to make sure it is open, an invitation is not necessary to register. Now you have added friends as possible, you can start sharing function. The Share feature allows you to inform subscribers and friends every time a new video. Does this feature is very useful because it gives you a number of groups (eg marketing silos) possible. So you can make use of the subscribers, friends and people who received an invitation friend, but not yet accepted or subscribed shares. Another feature that is handy if you build your friend base, the function of the bulletin. Bulletins will be used to send messages and once booked, the messages sent to all contact channels. The contact list also other users of the page that is linked through phone calls and emails from friends and friends, the videos you have shared. You can also contact the list with a special label that the common theme of this list. You can then specific contacts in different contact lists and messages to multiple friends.
Because of the importance of YouTube in the online video space, friends and subscribers should routinely be given. Whether it’s through a newsletter, share new videos and direct communication for the treatment of these contacts, because they are an important part of your business. Do not forget to respect their privacy and treat them as your own opt-in email list. Do not forget people who subscribe to your channel interested in your video, but not spam your work as a narrow ledge If YouTube as a way to drive traffic to your website to increase sales, the additional steps required to perform on your site to think of YouTube viewers can lead to sales. If the landing pages, custom message, or other pricing strategies in order to convert visitors into paying customers, it is worthwhile to try, try, and try to do good.
