YouTube optimisation

Ever thought how to use video to market your business? Well, here we are with YouTube video promotion ideas.

We have written a complete guide on YouTube SEO where we have talked about the importance of the video title and how it can help you in getting a lot of traffic.

Tagging is a very important part of YouTube SEO and you can add as many tags as you like but they should be relevant to your video. YouTube will automatically suggest you to write tags related to the title.

Optimisation is indeed a helpful approach to making your video discoverable on YouTube and other search results. It is always better to optimize a video before publishing it on YouTube.

Add video to your newsletter

According to a recent survey of brain shark, “using the video word in an e-mail subject line increase open rates by 19%, reduces unsubscribes by 26% and increases click-through rates by 65%”.

People who are engaged with your brand are always interested to hear what you have to say.

This is one of the easiest and smartest ways to promote your video by sending it to people who are already engaged with your brand.

YouTube Fan Finder

Fan finder is a channel ad tool through which you can submit a video for your channel ad. YouTube run your video ad for users who have already watched your videos.

Make sure video which you are planning to use for the ad is creative and not any boring stuff. To enable Fan Finder, Go to YouTube > Setting > Channel > Fan finder > Enable fan finder > Accept terms > Select your channel ad and you are done.

Add share button at the bottom of your video

People liked your video, now what? Always add a share button at the bottom of your video to share on major social sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Gmail, and WhatsApp etc.

Some people are too lazy to find links and to share even if they like videos, putting the share button on such videos will beat the odds.

Pin your videos on Social platform

According to a recent survey “conversion for a tweet is ten times more when it is pinned at the top of your feed”.

Twitter has an exclusive feature “pinned tweet” which can help you decide what the first thing should people see when they visit your twitter page.

You may find yourself stuck in discussion like, how to promote video content? Well, you have the answer now. Facebook too gives you this option to display a featured video in the “About” section of your page.

Add creative thumbnail
