Can Youtube Help Improve Your Sales?

Introduction to Youtube

By now, you have probably heard that to have a successful business model, you need to get into social networking. But while most people already know how to use social media giants such as Facebook and Twitter, one of the first social media websites, Youtube, isn’t getting the love it deserves from the business world. While different from Facebook and Twitter in that it isn’t conversation based, it has one strong advantage over them: visuals. A picture is worth a thousand words, and many times it can influence clients much more than simple text over a mobile interface. So how can you use Youtube in order to increase your business presence online, gain more customers and produce more sales?

Differences between other social networks

Connecting with your potential customers on Youtube is different than doing so on websites like Facebook or Twitter. On those social media websites, you would traditionally work within the website’s interface to gain friends or followers who might eventually buy your product. Businesses on Twitter actively interact with other Twitter users and offer prizes and deals on their product or services. The same with Facebook, for the most part.The major difference with Youtube is that you are courting people with your content who probably aren’t registered with the site. You are trying to get people to view your videos and content, and sometimes that can be difficult if you have to work outside of the interface.  Youtube makes content creaters have to market their videos off-site, and while this is often difficult, it can be more benefical in the long run. It helps to establish your videoes and your brand with other websites who might now be more apt to link to your official website. It also can expose your brand to a different, untapped market.

Being effective

What is the most effective way to make a Youtube video that your customers and potential clients might most identify with? The best choice is to go with something that represents your brand. Being geninue, and having something special in your video will go a long way. Being different, such as including humor or using an animation, are other ways to make your video more memorable. While Youtube is certainly a different social media genre than Facebook and Twitter, it’s arguably just as powerful and a certain asset to any business owner.

Google is working to redesign YouTube

Soon a general overhaul of the online video site YouTube? Google and would prepare for a new revolution in the halls, namely the advent of Internet-connected TVs, “says Wall Street Journal.

Google plans to rank practical videos on YouTube “channels” , and highlight them on a completely redesigned home page. The aim is to encourage users to stay longer on the site, and convince advertisers of the appropriateness of making an investment in advertising on YouTube.

YouTube will also invest up to $ 100 million to produce original content, namely professional videos designed specifically for the web. Google thus bets (risky, says the ‘WSJ’) there is a market niche for these videos online, midway between the amateur videos and real TV shows.

The initiative comes as the YouTube video market online is expanding rapidly in the U.S. thanks to streaming (video streaming), with a growing supply of programs and movies from companies such as Netflix, Amazon and Hulu. This is a major strategic shift for YouTube, which has emerged as the leader in online video with videos of amateurs and has so far paid little attention to the copyright professionals.

The parent company Google, which acquired the site in 2006 for $ 1.6 billion, clearly believes it is time to convert its investment into cash machine! … Asked by the Wall Street Journal, YouTube has so far refused to comment on these proposed “new formula” …


Google Street Has Vuvuzela

You would have read our post about vuvuzela on youtube and now Google (Google) has added an awesome small Easter Egg to the service when one surfs through maps of South Africa: a In honor of the World Cup’s signature sound, vuvuzela clutched in peg man’s hot small hands.

They already know that the South African device has taken the world by storm (whether the world likes it or not) — hell, it’s even invaded the Google-owned YouTube (YouTube). Still, this has to be one of our personal favourite appearances by the honking horn (being that it’s silent in this case).

If you wanted to catch a glimse of the Google Street vuvuzela.The only difference between the youtube vuvuzela and the Google Street vuvuzela is that on Google Street it does not buzzzzzzzzzzz.

Youtube Adds Vuvuzela Button

In honor of the World Cup’s signature sound, YouTube has added a vuvuzela button to its online videos.

In case you really can’t get enough of the vuvuzela’s buzz–and the YouTube vuvuzela button doesn’t go far enough.
