There are two key points of this article; how you can market your YouTube videos and why? We will start with how you can market your videos which are already present on YouTube. Suppose you have made a video related to a specific niche and you have it uploaded and ready for an audience on YouTube. Now you want that audience to arrive and be as big as possible.
Let me assure you that the very first step that you have taken is absolutely wise which is to select YouTube as the home for your video efforts. You might have known that YouTube has good traffic to advertise your video. But it’s again a matter of being found. Therefore on a personal level you may advertise your video by telling your friends, family and colleagues about it. They may search for the title and may even watch it, that is unless you have used this strategy far too often before. Therefore swap it about, talk to them, email them, text them or even send them an image from the video. Just do not harass them or you will become a lonely and moody film producer.
There is another and safer way to advertise your business videos, which is by adding their links to any blog you may own. Just make sure your video is related to that blog. It is a common observation that images and videos are more attractive than text so whoever reaches your blog and begins to read your post will see your video for sure. YouTube allows you to add a few html codes in any blog or post online. Those codes will enable you or any other Internet user to post a video online. This is a common practice in the world of Internet blogging, to add the code for a related YouTube video in the post. If the correct video is selected it can enhance the post, you can of course offer this video to other blog owners whose sites are related to the theme of your video, they will be more than willing to add these links under their blogs as it adds value to their post.
A third way to market your YouTube videos is through message boards. There exists a vast array of message boards related to almost every topic on the Internet. Thus all you have to do is search for a message board which is related to your video title, then post the link there. There are only a few websites/boards which do not allow such links in their posts but most of them have no such issues. Placing these links in your signatures is the best way to do this as it does not appear too pushy and allows you to add value to the site in the comments box. As your comments get reviews from members; they may see your video and you could get feedback from visitors about how to improve your work.
Now comes the part why you should market your videos. Well, you must have got some idea that marketing is to achieve popularity. The more your products or business are being viewed by people, the more your profile rises and thus many will contact you and your business. YouTube itself will attract many viewers to your website through your videos and you are now aware of some free methods to advertise your videos. So if you think that you are not getting enough viewers on YouTube, spread the link on message boards and blogs all over the web and get that traffic that you deserve.
