How is YOUR business taking advantage of YouTube?

Marketing with YouTube videos is an often untapped area for many small businesses. Most business owners seem to think that video costs a lot to produce, thinking purely in terms of videos equipment needed. In fact it’s one of the most common video marketing myths.
Whether you have an online or offline business, YouTube marketing is a great source for getting more customers and building your brand.

Here are a few suggestions on how you can use YouTube for marketing your business.

1. Promote your products and services with YouTube for business

3. Brand your YouTube videos to market your business

Most people will prefer watching a video to reading a lengthy/boring post. In fact video content makes it more memorable than written content. Surely, you want your viewers to remember your product?

Start off with the YouTube channel. Include a link to your business website, add your social media accounts and importantly customize that channel background to include your logo etc.

Next, make sure to brand your videos. You can include a watermark of your logo in video, you can include the website address of your business. I’ve also seen some people wearing branded t-shirts related to their business, when making the video!
