YouTube for small businesses - are you missing out?
If you’re not making use of YouTube in your marketing, it’s time to embrace it. With over a billion (that’s not a typo, I promise) monthly users watching over 600 billion hours of video every month, YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world, with up to 30 million visitors each day. According to HubSpot, the majority of audiences expect companies to be on social media. While Facebook and Twitter are the top two channels people expect your business to be active on, it may come as a surprise that YouTube came in third, beating out Google, Instagram and Pinterest.
By creating an active YouTube channel, you reach an eager - and younger – audience, and your business also stands to gain more influence on Google (bonus!). Comments on YouTube are tied to Google+, which means that creating and posting content on YouTube increases your visibility and credibility with Google’s search engine, if you can engage your audience.
