Don’t Hide Your Videos
I’m starting to see a few websites with a YouTube logo in one corner or as part of the site menu. I take that to mean there’s a company YouTube channel linked to it. But you shouldn’t stop there. If you make YouTube your sole source of video traffic, you’re missing the boat.
1. Videos hosted on your own server get “liked” by the search engines quicker.
2. If you don’t show some of your expertise – in the form of videos – on your site, you’re asking your audience to jump through another hoop in order to get them.
Post your best – the ones that answer questions or solve problems – on a page or pages that are dedicated to solving that problem.
Use your YouTube embed code to play your videos in email newsletters, and other communication tools.
Put your videos out front, and let them work their magic.
– That’s a wrap.
