Why You Need A YouTube Channel

Why You Need A YouTube Channel

As you can see there is a basic theme I am going over.  Different mediums or social media platforms for reaching out and engaging with your customers, client’s, patients’, friends and family.  Each person is different and each person has their own way of consuming information.

YouTube Statistics

Today I am going to give you some reasons on why YOU need to create a YouTube channel.

  • It’s the Number 2 Search Engine with over 1.3 billion (Remember Google is Number 1)
  • Video is more engaging then standard “text only” content.
  • YouTube Gets 30 Million Visitors per day
  • Mobile YouTube users spend on average 40 minutes per session/visit.
  • It’s FREE and very easy to use

Now with all those basic reasons to create a YouTube channel, let me give you the biggest one yet….

Google Owns YouTube

YouTube is owned by Google – And you can already see in plenty of search results – Google places video right alongside other static webpages.  People click on the video first!  You can also search engine optimize YouTube videos and get them ranked in no time for specific keywords about your business, products and so on.

YouTube is a great medium for sharing new product information, new product launches, quick tips and tricks and announcements.  This list can go on and on.  You get the idea.

Short Videos

I find that that shorter videos like the ones I am doing today with Facebook Live stand out more as people want information in short quick and understandable content.  Once they watch and their interest is peaked – then you can drive them to a longer more detailed and information stocked video.

Creating Videos = FUN

Creating videos is FUN.  With the new technology and smart phones, everyone can be a video producer, just like I am today.  Believe me anyone can do it.  You can start out small with short 30 seconds videos.  Just get yourself in front of the camera and smile, be yourself.  The more you do it the more you will get comfortable with it.

Your Own YouTube Channel

There is really not much more I can say about creating a YouTube channel for your local business.  This may sound like a daunting task or you may be a shy person, it just needs to happen so get out there and do it.

Like all my other videos – I will be doing a few “how to” videos on creating the Google My Business page, Facebook Fan Pages and your YouTube Channel along with all of the other important social media platforms.  So stay tuned for those!
