Copy What Works

Don’t reinvent the wheel. Generally, the videos that do properly are funny, weird, or useful. Spend an afternoon watching YouTube movies and examine what works. Find out what movies in your market have the most views, high ratings, most remarks or most subscribers. What are they doing right?

Put Keywords Everywhere

The exceptional way to assist humans discover your videos is via along with your keywords in the title, description, and tags. Use the Google Keyword Tool to locate variants of the key-word for extra tags.

Example Keyword: “Plant Tomatoes”

TITLE- How to Plant Tomatoes

TAGS- plant tomatoes, how to plant tomatoes, planting tomatoes, develop your very own tomatoes

Related: YouTube (and Facebook) for Your Business

Steal Keywords from Popular Videos

Search for the most popular movies in your market and then copy the tags they have listed. This will increase the probability your video will be listed beneath “suggestions” when any one views that video.

Before uploading your videos, personalize your channel (profile) and make it seem nice. Include some information about you and a link to your site.

Add Your URL to the Description

Add the “http://” model of your URL to the opening of your video description so humans can click on your hyperlink and go to your site.

Use Multiple Calls to Action

These are my preferred calls to motion to use on YouTube:

  • Please price this video.
  • Follow me on Twitter.
  • Find me on Facebook.
  • Subscribe to my videos.
  • Visit my weblog for more amazing videos.
  • Embed this on your site.
  • Please put up your comments.
  • Send this video to your friends.
  • Check out my channel.

YouTube permits you to add overlay textual content in your videos. Use them for your calls to action.


You shouldn’t ask humans to buy your stuff after observing your videos. Most human beings aren’t equipped for this. Plan your marketing funnel and you’ll see a tons better response. This is a example:

Watch YouTube Video > Go to My Blog to Watch More Videos > Sign Up to Get My Exclusive Videos (You Capture Email Addresses Here) > Try to Sell Them a Low-Ticket Item > Try to Sell a High-Ticket Item to Those Who Bought from You Before

Video Responses

Look for movies related to yours and every time it’s fantastic post your videos as video responses to them (don’t spam). This will allow you to piggyback a lot of the traffic that these movies get.

Create Playlists

Playlists are a extremely good way to get your movies watched by a lot of people.

Here’s how:

2. Add top notch movies on the same subject (from different people)

3. Choose a smart name for the playlist (think about your keywords. i.e. “Dog Training Tips”)

YouTube isn’t just a video sharing site; it’s a social network. You can add friends, message them, be a part of groups, create your own group and use the bulletin board to interact with the YouTube community.

Some great tips here and YouTube is a great place to get some traffic with your channel and redirect to your website (and from there to the sales pages)...

I have been using the platform for years but not really getting all the juice it offers. Knowing that I have begun some major revamping of the main channel and I have several others that I am also going to add to...

There are so many members here it would be good if we all subscribed to one another's channels - imagine how many subscribers we could all build-up for our channels?

Lots of meat in this post, thanks for taking the time to put it together! I am a member of a special group lead by a guy who knows his stuff when it comes to all things video and the internet.

You have included a lot of what he advocates here...Good on you!
