Now, I am going to go straight into this.

The number #1 Social page that drives traffic is YouTube. As you may know, YouTube is one of the most used websites on the internet. With over 100 hours of content upload every single minute. Billions of people around the world know what YouTube is and millions use it on a daily basis.



So why is YouTube better than say Facebook?



Well, that's because on YouTube if you are interested in a channel then you can subscribe to it and get updated every time that person uploads.

Meaning that YouTube can drive more Targeted traffic to your website.


Of course building a following on YouTube is not easy, but it is possible.

One way to do this is by uploading as much as possible. Publishing content on your website is similar to your YouTube channel. You have to upload content Almost as much on YouTube as you do your own website.

Depending on your Niche though this not always the case. For example if you are in a niche about cars, you won't need to upload as often as someone who is in the gaming niche (Most gamers upload daily).



Next your length of videos has to be the right length. Now this one is a bit tricky because the length of your videos also depends on your niche, but it also depends on how entertaining you can be.

People are very A.D.D nowadays, so you must capture a viewer in the first 20-30 seconds and them keep them there for most of the video. The more people that make it to the final 3rd of your video the better.

That's when you can use call to action strategies :) The best call to action strategy in my opinion is using annotations in your videos :)

For now that's all I have on YouTube.

Yeah, Tony is very good at teaching people here :) He has taught me a lot too. Twitter is a great Social page to have it's quick and easy, but at that cost you have to be active on it :)

Hi Anthony, thanks for the informative training.

In my opinion, when using Twitter we need to do regular tweet almost twice or thrice a day (compared to FB or Google+) because of its short content and twitter timeline is ... what they say, "jet-pumped".

Other new tweets will come to my timeline in just few seconds, so I think we need more tweeting to make our follower realized that we are active in twitter too.

That just my 2 cent :) Oh, thank you for mentioning Youtube. In the training, we were taught to use mainly the FB, Twitter, G+, and Pinterest. Maybe in near future I will try to create my youtube account :)

I agree, Twitter is super jet-packed. YouTube is very good if you can build the following. A lot of people though A.D.D like to watch videos, that's why gaming has surpassed some of the biggest sports out there.

I will create a more detail course on how to build a YouTube following. Once I have done it myself of course xD
