How can YouTube benefit you and your business?
YouTube is one of the top 5 most visited websites on the internet. One billion people visit YouTube and watch videos every month.
This is a social media platform that is growing in popularity for businesses, as more businesses take advantage of the benefits YouTube has to offer and help increase the awareness of products, services and brands.
Here are a few of the reasons why YouTube is great for business:
Showcase your products and services. Instead of reading about them, let your potential and existing customers see them in action, and understand why they should purchase from you.
Host & Save Bandwidth
Share your videos without slowing down your website and using up your bandwidth unnecessarily. YouTube videos are hosted on their servers which are built for video hosting.
Marketing on YouTube
Videos are gaining in popularity and Google considers videos to be important as you can see with more videos appearing in Google search results. By putting your videos on YouTube, the higher your pages should rank. Videos can be SEO friendly.
Most people rather watch what you have to say than read it. Make your content engaging through videos and get your message across.
Every video on YouTube has the potential to go viral. The more people who see it, the higher the chance it will be shared and shared again. That’s great exposure for your business.
Once your video is online, let your video sell your message/product/service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, while you concentrate on other things … like business and sleep.
You can target your videos to a local or global audience. You can also track the number of views, likes and dislikes, along other things. Find what does and does not work for your videos and business.
Of course, it will cost you time as you make and upload videos, but YouTube itself will not cost you money.
Here’s an example of one of our videos on YouTube – it showcases a speed comparison between a standard hard drive and a Solid State Drive (SSD).
