Still searching for some magic YouTube video marketing secrets? Is that why you are still not using YouTube as an internet marketing strategy?
Let me tell you something – the biggest secret you need to know is you’ll never make ANY money with YouTube!
Until, that is, you drop the excuses why you can’t do it, get off the coach, and make a video.
Stop being a “reactive marketer” – just checking you email hoping something good is going to show up. Become a “proactive marketer” – be so busy planting seeds into your marketplace that a great harvest is the only logical outcome.
Let me run by you some reasons why you can’t afford (unless you are already making millions online – are you?) to not use YouTube internet marketing strategy:
YouTube Internet Marketing Reason #1:
YouTube Internet Video Marketing is an Outstanding Lead Generation and List-Building Tactic – Uploading even a short clip about your product/service and optimizing it for your keywords to be found easier on YouTube AND Google means hordes of targeted traffic to discover you and follow you to your money-making website or blog (unless you are not in it for the money – ???).
YouTube Internet Marketing Reason #2:
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) – Ever paid attention to the search results that Google dishes out when you look for something online? What is usually in the first 3-4 spots of the search? VIDEOS. That’s known as Google’s “blended search” – displaying videos, articles, maps, press releases alongside their standard search results.
Getting on the first page of Google with a video virtually overnight is a reality – I’ve done it even before I had a website and with as close to zero experience with video marketing as one could have.
YouTube Internet Marketing Reason #3:
YouTube Viral Marketing Potential – Give your videos a chance to go viral and be seen by thousands. If you think you don’t have what it takes to create a viral video, think again. I’ve seen many a viral video that got tens of thousand of views where I said “what? This video?”
ComScore.com tells us that 107.1 million viewers watched 6.8 billion videos on YouTube (63.5 videos per viewer) in April 2009. Those numbers equate to LOTS of potential eyeballs to view your content. Especially if you can figure out how to optimize your YouTube video content for them to actually FIND you!
YouTube Internet Marketing Reason #4:
YouTube Social Media Marketing Benefits – Remember: YOUTUBE IS A SOCIAL NETWORK! And as such, it gives you a tremendous opportunity to network with potential prospects and like-minded entrepreneurs, build relationships, and send people to your website EVEN IF you don’t have any videos uploaded yet. (Notice I said YET).
So, in the words of the infamous “Dumb & Dumber” character Loyd (did I just loose all your respect – yes, I own the movie and love it): “Move it or loose it, sister!”
If you don’t start using YouTube video marketing for your business, I can guarantee you your competitor will.
Round One is on!
