How Can I Use YouTube for My Business?
Although videos cannot replace a good website for your company, it can definitely help get your company more recognition in less time and effort. However, many companies simply have no idea what to post on YouTube that could possibly help their business.
Here are some ideas on what types of videos you can create for your company:
► Videos that share knowledge or show your expertise
Post videos that give your viewers helpful tips or advice concerning your company and its services. You could also post interviews with experts who can give viewers more information related to your industry or who can attest to your company’s credibility. An advantage of posting videos is that most people are more likely to pay attention to 5 minutes of somebody speaking, than read a long text explaining the same thing. You’re much more likely to grab their attention and keep it.
You could also use YouTube to post videos of presentations you’ve given which, aside from showing its viewers something informative about your company or product, can also show them that you’re an authority on the topic at hand.
► Interesting Advertisements
Take advantage of YouTube’s easy video-sharing options to post any of your company’s TV ads, radio ads, or even slideshows. With people’s increased dependence on TIVO, internet streaming, downloads, and the like, people watch TV and listen to the radio much less than they did before. They may have missed some great commercials that you’ve spent good money on and you could post these on YouTube for free!
