The Power of Youtube Marketing – Ranking Videos On Youtube!
Youtube needs no introduction. With more than one billion users, it is the most prolific video sharing website in the world. It has changed the way people perceive entertainment (even if a certain video is not entertaining, the comments always are!)
It has made many people famous and immensely rich.
Just a little more than a decade ago, you had to impress grumpy producers if you wanted a shot at fame. However, with Youtube – you can reach out to hundreds of millions of people from all over the planet, right from your computer screen! Every day, people watch hundreds of millions of hours of Youtube videos – generating billions of views in the process!
Youtubers are making millions just by parodying the way animals eat and by pranking others! 300 hours of video material gets uploaded to Youtube every sixty seconds! Seriously, if Youtube is not a part of your marketing strategy, you are missing out on a myriad of money making opportunities. At present, the written word still remain the most powerful form of content but trends are changing rapidly and people are beginning to prefer videos to written words.
Videos make so much more sense than words.
To start, simply put – they’re much more interesting that just plain text. I have a feeling that in future, children will learn EVERYTHING by watching videos. School will be one long video-watching session. They will learn about history, science and even maths simply by watching videos – they will be fixing cars and creating complex algorithms on their own, just by watching videos.
Videos are the future – they enable your audience to see the real you – with all your traits! They make it much easier to showcase your personality (assuming you have one!) Statistics indicate that more than 60 percent of Youtube views are from outside of the creator’s home country. What a fantastic opportunity to reach out to people and to contribute to the world!
Youtube has enormous income generation potential.
Just make a video of anything you are good at:
- being naughty
- social experiments
- or even applying makeup!
There are YouTube channels on ALL of these topics, and MORE!
You can QUITE LITERALLY talk about almost anything and everything, without having to be politically correct. In fact, you will be more popular if you are politically incorrect! If you’re camera shy, you don’t even have to appear in the videos – you can have somebody from Fiverr make one for you – or shoot – your kitten will probably generate way more views than you!
Once you upload a few videos and start getting a good number of views and subscribers – you can become a Youtube partner. Not only does being a partner make you eligible for sharing ad revenue, but Youtube actually works harder to promote your videos. Thousands of people have become millionaires just by doing this. All they do is create viral videos! You should definitely take a shot at going viral.
Research has revealed that content which makes people happy has a high chance of going viral (remember the video about Christian the Lion?) In general – emotional content is highly sharable and contagious.
The 7 key emotions to target are awe, anger, joy, lust, fear, anxiety and surprise.
It is easy to create a video using even a good camera phone. I use my iPhone 6+ for MANY of my videos – and they look AMAZING. With so much editing software available free of cost, even a kid can create and edit a kick-ass video in no time! If you spend just a little time on learning about the basics of video SEO, you can easily make thousands of dollars through Youtube – without even getting too many views.
Say you want to promote a certain mobile phone – create a detailed review about the phone. Talk about all the pros and cons and really help people to make an educated buying decision. If it is even a remotely popular model of cellphone, your video will generate thousands of views and you will earn a substantial commission. You can even review bad, impractical mobile phones – this actually improves your credibility since you are warning people against buying mediocre products. You can provide a better alternative to them and still make commission! Just one video can generate hundreds of dollars in income, as long as it is properly optimized. There is literally no limit to the number of products you can review! Can you imagine the income potential even if you review just 2-3 products every week?
Guess what – you’re NOT just limited to PHYSICAL PRODUCTS.
You can ALSO do the same thing for DIGITAL products (like from clickbank, or JvZoo)
Why not use videos to assist with your Product Launch Jacking? Along with your detailed review of a product, do a VIDEO review showing the pros and cons of it.
- Find a GOOD product that’s worthy of your time to promote
- Buy a domain name or use an existing blog
- Build your website AROUND that particular product
- Create a Youtube Review or two about it.
Upload it to video, and watch the traffic come in from both YouTube AND Google.
Youtube has an insane amount of possibilities – it can be used to promote any product or service. You can contact satisfied customers and offer them an incentive in exchange for a positive video testimonial.
You can pay people to create videos! Websites like Fiverr are teeming with people who can make super entertaining and professional videos on any topic – just for a measly 5 bucks!
