Earning views with video marketing might be tough the first time if you don’t know what you’re doing, but it’s about as easy as getting views and readers with any other type of marketing.
Before your first video is made, you should concentrate on building up a list. You can do this through forums, a squeeze page and many other mediums. This article will show you how to make your number of views explode with just a few simple steps.
1. Tell Your Followers
This step involves just telling anyone following you or interested in you about the video. You should send an email to your YouTube friends, to your mailing list, through your social media accounts and you should also embed the video into your blog for the most exposure.
This is the most basic step because you really aren’t doing that much. You don’t have to do any link building at this point, you’re just telling people about your new video.
2. Social Bookmarking
Social bookmarking might not be as good for articles as it was in the past, but it does a wonderful job with video marketing. Just go to about 20 different bookmarking sites or more and add your video URL. This also helps other people share your video because these websites are made for sharing.
Don’t be afraid of paying for an automated distribution service. It’s much faster than posting your videos manually, and you won’t be penalized.
3. Get Video Responses
Video responses serve many needs. They propel your video up the ranks, they can increase views because anyone watching the response will want to see the original video and they can be very influential. There are two ways to get responses: naturally or unnaturally.
Naturally means that you wait for someone to respond. You can also ask people to respond. This has limited effectiveness because many people don’t respond to videos. It’s actually much better to make several YouTube accounts (with different IP addresses) to create your own responses.
4. Do Some Video SEO
The last thing you need to do to make your video earn views is to do some serious back-linking and spreading the word about your video. You can do this through article marketing, embedding the video onto other blogs and using an unshortened link whenever you are displaying the link on any digital property.
Many of the back-linking penalties that exist for your other websites, like over-optimizing don’t apply to video marketing yet. So don’t be afraid to spread the word as much as possible to really give your video a boost. If you do enough back-linking, then your video will easily show up on the top of Google since Google favors YouTube and other video-sharing websites.
Getting views with video marketing might seem difficult, but there are many things that you can do to dramatically increase your viewership. Just tell people about the video, do some link building and use the responses and bookmarks to improve your exposure. This will propel your video to the top, which will help you get more views and customers.
