YouTube began its digital life as a toy, an amusement for amateur filmmakers or ‘show offs.’ Internet folklore attributes the founding of YouTube to the difficulty one of its inventors had in placing a video recording of a dinner party on the internet. He and two of his friends, all Paypal employees, started the site in February, 2005. It met with instant success. In fact, it was so successful that Google purchased the site in 2006 for 1.65 billion dollars, and YouTube now operates as a subsidiary of Google.
YouTube’s early content featured cute kittens, puppies and children doing funny things, but soon it began to branch out. Most YouTube videos are free, but many are preceded by advertising content and YouTube derives revenue from AdSense, a Google program which targets ads according to site content and audience. It’s easy to see how this can become a part of professional SEO techniques, as well as many branding strategies. It allows content publishers (potentially you) to direct text, audio and video messages that are targeted to site content and audience. YouTube content can be an important part of your small business SEO strategy.
How? By providing useful, educational video content that calls attention to your small business, service or professional practice. As a professional, a service provider or small business person, you have some specialized skill or knowledge. If you are an accountant, this might be information about itemized deductions. A plumber can demonstrate how to properly change a faucet. Witnessing expert help in any one of thousands of skills and tasks directs a potential client or customer to you. This education can be the best SEO strategy possible.
Audio and visual presentations are one of the best ways to draw attention to your small business or professional practice.
