If you produce video in order to drive traffic to your site, you are not alone. Thousands and thousands of people do the same thing, making it easy to get lost in the millions of videos that are available on various video sharing websites. It’s often difficult to get a lot of views of your videos, because this is the video with the most views and comments that usually appear at the top of search results on video sharing sites, as well as those videos that are advertised in related results when someone watches a video. So how do you get these views in the first place?
The most common way to get a lot of views is word of mouth.
Viral marketing is alive and well in the world of video sharing. When people watch a video that they really like, they tend to tell their friends. If the video is really good, it gets to several different sources and spreads virally. Unfortunately, this viral feeding insanity usually only happens in videos that are truly extravagant. Celebrities doing something shocking, humiliating someone in public or a really stupid criminal can make their videos viral. A video about catching trout or how to make money online is less likely to become viral.
First of all, you must make sure that all your friends visit your videos. Link each video you create on your blog. Send a link to your mailing list. Put a link in the signature of your forum. Use social bookmarks to drive traffic. If you find a video in your niche that is already popular, you can post it in response to your video. This will give you a link from your video page. Just keep in mind that some networks require these answers to be approved by the original poster.
In the description of each video that you publish, you should ask viewers to subscribe to your channel if they liked your video. Most video sharing sites have the ability to subscribe to see more of their videos, so be sure to ask people to register. The more people subscribe to your channel, the more people may have to visit every video you make later. Comments are also vital for popularity on many sites. When possible, ask people to comment on your description at the end of the video production Philadelphia.
The great thing is that your efforts will be rewarded many times. As the number of views of your video increases, it is more likely to appear in search results and other lists, which, in turn, means that more people will get into it, which will give a new impetus to the number of views and who knows, before you know it, your video about fishing for trout may be viral.
