YouTube: A Billion-User Network!

Last Update: June 28, 2018

YES, GOOGLE OWNS YOUTUBE, TOO!

The explosive YouTube network does, indeed, boost of over one billion users to date. That is just about 1/3 of the people on the entire web! Each day, those people view millions of hours of YouTube videos! Why not get in on the maddness?

YOUTUBE'S MOBILE AUDIENCE.

YouTube's main mobile audience ranges from age 18 - 49, attracting more users than any other cable platform in the United States!

So why aren't more small businesses taking advantage of this hyteria? Only 9% are.

Why? Because most think videos are more difficult to produce than an image or blog post. They simply just don't want to be bothered. So, instead, the small businesses tend to lose out on the a platform that could explode their business---as it would provide an enormous opportunity!.

SOCIAL ASPECTS.

YouTube is a great social media tool, as well, and should be considered part of a strategy for increasing traffic. Posting a video on Social Media platforms has endless possibilities! Developing an audience through subscriptions has its benefits, too!

Have you been contemplating whether or not you should get started on YouTube? Or, maybe you've tried and given up? Do you want to get in on all the hype? Well, then, you have come here for a reason!

Hello Erin, thank you for your blog post, I believe that YouTube is a very powerful tool and I am using it but I feel I need to be using more. Apparently, a friend of mine who has teenage daughters Cecil Ray watch YouTube rather than television, which suggests something! I don't have a television and I haven't had one for many years, so I have to watch YouTube!

Enjoy your day.

Herin, you are absolutely correct in that people assume that it
is too difficult to bother with it. I would love to learn how to use YouTube to my advantage. Perhaps the upcoming YouYube Training will enlighten me. Great article you wrote!

I've actually thought of starting a you tube channel.
In my business , they do product reviews and talk about the features of the products.
I don't know if my poor ol broken iPhone 4s can handle the heat.
I just have a hard time laying it to rest, we've been together for about 8 years.

Another of Hawaii's best kept secret is no longer a secret. lols!

Btw, Steven the island of Kauai is the 1st best-kept secret. Everywhere you look it is beautiful. Must see to believe. Why we call it "the Garden Isle?" That's why!

Don't tell anybody, OK!??? =)

Yep,

I was buying a medium size coffee everyday on the way to work and when I did the math FedEx of 1lb of beans from Kona was less that what I was spending on poor coffee. It was an easy choice. Ordered and delivered by FedEx in 2 days. AH, those were the days when I had money. ;(

hey Frank,
are you anywhere near the volcano eruption on Oahu I see on TV this morning?
Reply

No, it's on another island, island of Hawaii. Yes, Hawaii has an island called Hawaii believe or not. I live on the island o Oahu. The capital of Hawaii....sounds confusing, doesn't it?

No because I live on another island and more importantly, I personally hate warm temperatures!

I thought they said it was on Oahu. My bad.

Not possible Steven, all are extinct on Oahu. Hawaii the biggest island of them all. (we have 7) Hawaii is the biggest and continues to grow real estate.

Great question.

I have registered for this webinar. I love YouTube, for traffic generation and leads.Been using it a while, since learning the basics about it

It is after all a video blog channel, so what better way to drive traffic than through video uploads

Plus also, if you have adsense, then you can connect your adsense and get paid for showing ads on your videos. As an example, I know of at least people personally, who have earned between $1.2 mIllion, $400,000 and $3.75 Million dollars per year since 2008/9

There are of course other people earning smaller sums such as $500, $700 for the same thing, so yes it should be intersting

The analytics I get on my own channel, are damned impressive, so the webinar tomorrow, is going to be great for those of us that wish to enhance our channels even further

One thing I do understand from my use of it so far, si that YT absolutely loves community intereaction. much the same as Google+ does

Great post though Erin and thanks for sharing it

Your welcome, I've also just watched the training from last Friday,repurposing content, which was also good and gives some great ideas for getting extra traffic, through doing one peice of good content, one of them is centered round YouTube

One of the most interesting things is, at least on my channel, is that I upload How to & Video reviews on a regular basis, is that looking at my analytics there yesterday, the amount of searches done from within YouTube for videos was just under 1,500

From the bloggers point of view, YT is an absolute must as well
