YouTube can be used to drive massive targeted traffic to your website or blog.
YouTube is a video search engine that has over 1.4 Billion users in 2019 and growing, over 300 hours of video is uploaded to the service every minute and over 5 Billion videos are watched on YouTube every single day.
YouTube - A Video Search Engine
YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world after Google, so there is a huge traffic potential that everyone should take advantage of.
For Internet marketers, bloggers and home business owners, this is fantastic. Hundreds of millions of people visit YouTube every month.
They are searching for information about ways to earn money online, blogging tricks, home business opportunities, basically anything that has to do with earning money online.
If you are an Internet marketer that needs massive targeted traffic to your site, then you need to learn all you can about YouTube and how to use it.
#1. YouTube helps you get massive free targeted traffic
Successful Internet business owners realize how effective YouTube is for getting the word out about their products and services.
When you visit YouTube next time, do a search for these terms:
- "work at home"
- "Internet money making"
- "make money blogging"
- "earn money from home"
- "how to earn passive income from home"
You will get thousands of results, and the results at the top are probably from famous Internet market owners you recognize.
Internet marketers never sell anything directly on YouTube, they only share valuable information.
At some point in the video they will say that more information can be found on their website, there is also most likely a link below the video where you can get more information. When you click on the link and visit their website, there is most likely a place where you can sign up for their newsletter.
YouTube is only used a traffic vehicle, the whole idea is to get people to their website where they sign up for a free newsletter or buy a product directly. This is how passive income is made.
YouTube videos are great because they get indexed really quickly in Google and other search engines.
The videos often rank on the first page even if there is a lot of competition.
For a few hours of work per week, you can get massive traffic from YouTube that will generate signups for your newsletter and sales of your products for years to come.
#2. Learn all you can about YouTube before setting up your own channel!
Visit YouTube channels of successful Internet marketers.
- What do their channels have in common?
- How does their profiles look?
- What kind of videos do they have?
- What are the titles of their videos?
If you are looking to get massive targeted traffic from YouTube, then you must learn about video marketing strategies that are effective.
There are free training courses available online, you can find helpful books and videos with "how-to" information. (See below for more information)
#3. Learn by watching other YouTuber´s videos!
Successful Internet marketers make their own videos but they also learn the newest Internet marketing strategies by watching videos from other marketers. Then they take notes and most importantly take action!
#4. Videos can go viral!
Your YouTube videos can go viral and this can bring massive traffic quickly. If you take the time and make a really informative video that shares something step-by-step how something is done, your video might go viral. The video can be shared thousands of times, linked to and embedded from websites.
In case your video does not go viral, you are still getting highly targeted traffic that converts into signups for your newsletter and product sales. The more high-quality videos you make, the more traffic and sales you will make. People are looking for useful information, give it to them!
#5. Buying advertising
If you have an advertising budget, you can drive a lot of traffic by buying advertising from YouTube. You will pay only when someone views your ad. Buying ads is optional, but it will speed up things a lot. Free marketing strategies work really well, but they take a bit longer to take effect.
#6. Commenting on other Youtuber´s videos
You can get a lot of traffic to your own YouTube channel just by commenting on other members videos regularly. The most important thing is to actually watch the video before commenting, or your comment might not get approved.
Commenting is really effective, you should comment on a few videos (that are related to your niche) daily.
#7. Get traffic from the video description box
When you upload a new video to your YouTube account, you have the opportunity to write a description. The description should include your keyword and some text about the video. The description appears below the video and it will get indexed in search engines.
Many online business owners never take advantage of using video description box, they are missing out on a lot of traffic.
