033: Why Youtube is your best friend!

Last Update: July 07, 2014

My definition of youtube is:

The place where you can find the visual answer to just about any problem you may ever have!

There are videos about:

Mad cats, wild dogs, taming animals, training people, unblocking your sink and the list goes on!

It is the second biggest internet search engine - owned also by Google.

To get to the right answer quickly, as with any search engine, is to choose your search term correctly.

When searching Youtube:

Think about the question you ask to get an answer for, the same approach should be used in any form of "search".

How to ... write an ebook / unblock a drain / grow cucumbers / ride a bicycle / tame wild people / find a niche / feed old mules / etc...

Also consider adding the year to a search term - "... in 2014". If the year is a specific thing for example "... 1969 Chevy ..." - then natuarally you do not need to add 2014!

What else can Youtube teach you?

What is trending, great niches to follow / avoid, - how to make a video for your own website!

Things to look for!

- Numbers of likes and non-likes: Why watch something that has a mass no follow?

- Is it current to the market "timing" - 2014 / 2008?

- How many other videos on the same subject that person has - may mean "high skill" level.

Use youtube for inspiration as well!!


Hoping this may help someone out there to solve a small or large problem they are currently facing!

Thank you for reading - please do the usual like/hate/comment!

Be blessed and make it magic!

The other good thing about Youtube is you can embed videos into your own site with just a few clicks. Perfect for adding relevant content to your website and looks as good as a photo.

Well the ones I use are generally from the manufacturers of the products I am promoting.

I think it helps your site looks more official and authoritative (is that even a word?) if you use official videos, but of course it all depends what you are promoting
