The Guide to Getting No Cost Traffic from YouTube
November 22, 2013
This guide will show you how to get traffic to your site from YouTube with some simple hacks
I want only two things from YouTube:
- Cat videos
- More attention to my own videos
Yes, I love the attention, but more importantly, my YouTube videos drive traffic to my site.
Which means ... more moola for me (insert evil laugh).
If you're already thinking "Whatever Neville, I don't even upload videos to YouTube.", I'm about to teach you a very important lesson ...
If you're not tapping into the millions of people on YouTube, you're missing out on hundreds, if not thousands, of customers, partnerships, opportunities.
YouTube is a free marketing channel that everyone should be using to drive traffic to their websites.
Okay, so now that I've convinced you to upload videos to YouTube, you're probably thinking that getting views and stuff will be hard ... or that you need to have a huge list of subscribers to send your videos to. Right?
WRONG young sumo-ling!
Just like Search Engine Optimization (SEO) helps you rank webpages higher in Google ... There are small changes you can make to your YouTube videos that will rank it higher, get more views, and drive traffic to your website.
And our good friend Zack Zarate has put together the best damn guide to optimizing YouTube videos I've ever seen (meaning it's super-short, to the point, and tells you EXACTLY what to do using a case-study).
Now the case study here is not some high-priced fancy-schmancy marketing video you can't relate to.
It's a video filmed by Chief Sumo Noah Kagan from his iPhone on the side of the road! The video is very un-professional and a sweaty Noah Kagan explains a marketing tip. Here it is:
Before, the video didn't get much attention. Noah didn't really promote it or think much of this cheaply-filmed video.
But after Zack volunteered to optimize this simple iPhone video, it got:
- 62% more views
- 22% more "likes"
- A whole lot more subscribers to Noah's channel
- More webpage visits to OkDork.com and AppSumo.com
And Zack even made the video rank in the top 5 results on YouTube for the search term "How To Sell".
Holy freakin crap!
That's a lot of benefits from just 3 minutes of work Zack did to optimize this video!
Now imagine if you took just 3 minutes to optimize each of your YouTube videos and how much traffic that could drive you over the course of a year.
This is no joke: After reading this guide that Zack created, I'm going back and optimizing all my own YouTube videos (so far it's taken me about 3 minutes for each one).
I just spent $16 on a burrito for lunch, and all I have to show is indigestion.
Instead, you can spend $15 on this YouTube optimization guide, read it while on the toilet (in less than 20 minutes), and within 30 minutes get traffic from YouTube.
This guide will likely get me several thousand more views and a lot more sales, just within the next few weeks. Imagine the impact it'll have over the next few YEARS!
