Have You Considered Video Marketing?

By Posted in - SOCIAL MEDIA on December 3rd, 2010 1 Comments

I just read a post from Design Damage that you may want to take a look at called Four Internet Marketing Trends for 2011. The part that particularly caught my eye were the statistics related to video marketing...

"Do you know that a YouTube channel is the equivalent of a Facebook profile? Do you know that online video can help with your SEO?

Let’s take a look at some data here for you to think about.

At the 2010 Search Engine Strategies Conference & Expo, Greg Jarboe, president and co-founder of SEO-PR revealed that:

  • Americans watch more videos a month on YouTube than they conduct searches on Google
  • A video is 50 times more likely to get a first-page Google ranking than a text page

If those finding aren’t stunning, coming from an SEO perspective check out Pew Internet Research’s recent study indicating that “7 in 10 adult internet users (69%) have used the internet to watch or download video. That represents 52% of all adults in the United States.”

So if you have any showmanship or knowledge to impart, why not set up a Youtube channel, dress it up to match the look of your other social networking profiles and let rip!

    I have actually created a YT channel for YA and kidlit. Look up IttyBittyLit on YouTube if you want. I'd be happy to do a reading with some original art. The Lost Tooth has examples of my art.

    a'best,
