Leverage Online Video Websites to Promote Your Website

A lot of people let search engines do all of the work for them in terms of traffic. If you have a website, you almost certainly have some content on it (at least I hope you do!). Generally speaking, this content will include articles. Your website is ranked by search engines based on this content. If your site is highly ranked by the search engines, you’ll see a lot more traffic and if your website is for a business, this means more profit for you. However, since there are simply so many sites on the web, not every site can be highly ranked. This means that you need to employ other strategies to promote your site.

One way that a growing number of websites are choosing to promote themselves is by putting content on online video websites. The massive popularity of these sites can drive a lot of traffic to your site if you choose to promote your site in this way.

Remember that people do not visit these online video websites in order to watch commercials. When creating your video, do not make it a straightforward commercial for your product or service. It is better to use this platform to inform, not to sell outright.

If your site does sell a service or a product, then you should make videos which feature this product or service without coming off as a sales pitch. While you should give some information about your business in the video, focus on the product or service rather than the provider. Offer more information about your business at the end of the video; if you make a commercial, people will likely view it as just so much spam.

Of course, business owners have the most to gain from promoting their websites; but anyone at all with a website can significantly increase their traffic by using online video websites. If you have a site which generates revenue through using Google Adsense or membership in an affiliate program, then you probably have a website which is content driven. You most likely have a lot of articles on your site, probably focused on a single topic. You can promote your website by creating video content which is on the same topic to attract people who would be likely to be interested in your site. You can include your website address at the end of the video to direct viewers to your site.

While there are many different online video websites that you can upload content to for free, if you really want to get results for your website, you should concentrate on the sites which have the greatest viewership, such as Google Video and YouTube.
