I'm targeting people who already have videos ranking for local keywords, and are actively getting calls right now. I am from NJ, and targeting keywords in NJ.
Since I would rather not share a lot of my videos on the forum, feel free to pm me, and we can "start slow". To make sure we're not competitors. And if we are, maybe it would be for the best either way?
I am looking to increase my current youtube conversions, find better buyer keywords, and set up a larger sales funnel on youtube (people know I do a lot on CL but right now I'd like to focus on youtube).
I am in niches that have lots of room for domination, but for some reason, I can't get more than 2-3 calls a month from each video. Thats an average. Some videos get 4-5 calls, others get 1 or 2, some get none.
I'm curious about things like the ratio of your keywords. Currently I'm doing about 70% long tailed keywords, and 30% broad keywords.
Lately I started getting client reviews, left in my comments. It definitely seems to help conversions. But I'm also curious about how people are pitching their services.
Are you using commerical type videos? To make your business look big? Because some of my more personal videos, where I don't do that, seem to have better conversions. Where there are no fancy graphics, but just a person speaking with a well written/well delivered script. I use images too, but I tend to add a lot of social proof, and sample work photos, rather than some of the more highly decorated content that doesn't seem to add much value (I'll have to link example videos from other people to show what I mean).
It also seems, when I do the scripts myself, rather than get voiceover work done, that the conversions are better. I noticed when I get voiceover work on fiver, even when their voices are great, its almost like people can SENSE that their accents aren't local. People from NJ have a somewhat unique way of talking, and I noticed when I use my own voice, it seems people trust the video more.
I'm just looking to exchange ideas so I can get more leads off youtube. If anyone wants to pm me, go right ahead. If people want to leave advice in this thread, feel free to do so.
But I'm more focused on different methods of pitching a business, different ways to use comments, examples of good keywords to go after, rather than how you rank your videos.
Do you want me to share more? Just ask and I'll add more value. But I'd like to get some type of discussion going on this. Whether in this thread, or in private.
