WHAT: YouTube for Bloggers Webinar
WHEN: Wednesday, June 21 at 8:00 pm EST
As many of you know, I have a YouTube channel alongside my blog. I’ve branded this YouTube channel with my blog and used the power of video content to grow my audience. Through using YouTube, I’ve been able to gain a subscriber base of over 90,000, and my videos have more than 6 million collective views. On top of that, I was awarded by YouTube in their NextUp program and got to spend an entire week at YouTube Space NYC learning alongside the pros. By harnessing the power that video content offers, I have been able to greatly improve my sway, reach, and growth.
As a fellow blogger, I know that many bloggers want to add video to their blogs. Most have even uploaded a video or two. But, many struggle to fully commit to video content, or to growing their YouTube channel. In some ways, YouTube is a lot like a blog, and in other ways, it’s a totally alien planet. However, with video content continuing to grow as the highest consumed kind of media online, it’s becoming more and more important that you start to integrate original, digital video into your brand.
Five Reasons You Need Video for Your Blog
REASON #1: ORIGINAL VIDEO CONTENT IS ON THE RISE
It’s amazing to think, but original video content that businesses create, bloggers upload, and everyday people film on their day’s off in their extra bedroom, is slowly becoming just as popular if not MORE popular than TV programming. “It’s estimated that mobile video will account for 75% of total mobile data traffic by 2020.” – via Cisco. Three-fourths of ALL THE INTERNET CONSUMED on mobile devices is going to be video. Are you interested in missing out on 75% of all the internet usage? Because I sure am not!
REASON #2: SEARCH
Did you know that YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine in the world? There are people out there that are searching for the content you create. More and more people are turning to their phones and computers to get answers for a question they have and they prefer to watch the answer.
REASON #3: INCREASE YOUR REACH
“In the US, YouTube reaches more 18-49 year-olds than ANY broadcast or cable TV network, and YouTube does that on mobile alone.” -via YouTube Statistics. Video content is going to allow you to reach a set of people who perhaps don’t read blogs, aren’t finding you on social media, don’t know about your product, and have different internet habits.
REASON #4: GAIN A PERSONAL CONNECTION
Showing yourself and your personality allows people to get to know you. They’ll start to relate to you and get to know you as a person. When I started creating videos I almost immediately saw in increase in engagement and interactions across all my social medias. People liked that they could see the more “real” me and they connected with things about me and in turn, helped them to become more engaged and dedicated fans.
REASON #5: GET PAID MORE
Long story short, I typically get paid 5-10x more money on sponsored content when I’m creating a video with it. All the four things I just mentioned above…brands and marketers all know this too. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been chatting with a brand and they say, “we need to add more video content this quarter.” Recently I was pitching to a brand and they were really on the fence about it. They had pretty much given me the “try again in 6 months” email. So, I followed back up reminding them of my value and the video content I could bring to the table and what do you know…within 12 hours I was signing an agreement for $4,000 worth of compensation.
