Marketing with You Tube? Share your success please

by rachelle123 20 replies
I am currently having a video done for my diet site and plan to put out there for circulation.

My question is how successful have any of you been with using video promoting your site via you tube?

Please tell me your success, made lots of $$, just a little and any tips or tricks that I should avoid..

Thanks for your comments in advance..

    Making your first video and getting it up on YouTube is a great start and congrats on that!

    I would try to put up several more videos besides the one video.

    Also you can make videos of products that your promoting as an affiliate and put in your affililiate link in the first part of the description to get sales.

    Theres a Warrior in here that has been doing that quite successfuly with products he promotes including some of my products.

      Hey Rachelle,

      Give it a shot. I've had moderate success with YouTube videos without much effort at all, but there are so many variables. You really won't know until you try.

      I watched a video a few weeks ago about the guy who had his year old cheesburger video that took off, but I believe he said it didn't get many views for a couple years. Then one day just took off.

      It's a gret viral traffic method, but probably shouldn't be your only one. Like Frank said, you'll want more than one video.

        Video is the " best thing of this time" if you want to have a strong presence on the internet then you have to make videos and lots of them ... a few years ago nobody knew who joel comm or chriss pirallo were , now almost 85 % of the people know them all they have done is make videos interrsting, helpfull and tons of them

          Here are my pointers:

          1.) Optimize your video for keywords just like you were SEO a website
          2.) Get 1st page, 1st video rank for your video
          3.) Make the hyperlink at the top of the video description so no one has to press "more info" to see it

          ^^^ Watch conversions

              Put your keyword in the title first.
              Then in the description field after your domain url,
              if there are tags allowed at the video sites...put your keywords in the tag field.

                    tips

                    when creating your video, understand there is a 10 min limit on youtube..

                    instead of making just 1 video of 9.5 mins

                    create 5 2 min videos..

                    for each of the titles of these videos, use your related long tailed keywords

                    Put your Url at the end of each video for at least 30 seconds running..

                    This will give you 5 times the chance of getting more views to your video content and convert them into traffic to your site..


                    I used video exclusively on one of my community websites, most traffic came from video.google.com and created 9500 members in around 4 months

                    Cheers

              Thanks!

              Use keywords that are not too competitive by using the tool at:

              https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal

              Use that keyword in your title and watch it to see how it ranks. Also I'd recommend submitting it to some social networking sites like Digg or Reddit just to get it some immediate views. Then carefully watch it on youtube to see how it ranks for your keywords. I got mine to number one and every day it goes up a few hundred, which isn't much but multiplied a few times with a few different videos it adds up to good traffic for your site.

    Rachelle - who did you get to make the video for you? I wish to do this too and want to out-source it.

    Would you please PM it to me if you don't wish to put it on the forum?

    Thank you - Melanie

      YouTube is a huge arena for marketing.

      I'm actually looking into how to package things for YouTube myself... we'll see what i can come up with but it's like eBay: There is huge potential, and there are tons of people joining all the time.
