YouTube Video Promotion Strategies

Here are few tricks you can implement to drive traffic from Youtube.

  1. Post video responses: Choose 10 -20 popular videos. Go to each of the video, scroll down, you see “video responses” tab. Click on “post a video response”, and submit your video. Make sure that you submit only a related video. This will put your video under 1000’s of visitors who visit the most popular videos. This technique alone can bring you thousands of visitors to your site.
  2. Statistics and Data section: In every video page, you see a “Statistics and Data” section. This section lists the websites that sent most number of visitors to the video along with the number of views. Now, go to each of these websites and try to submit your videos too. Most of the sites listed under this section allow people to upload videos. If not, you can send a friendly email to the site admin requesting him to embed your video.
  3. Tags: Find the most popular videos that belong to your niche and pick up the tags used in this video. You can find the tags under the “More info” section of a video. Now, use the same tags to your video. This strategy help you get listed under the “Related Videos” section of popular videos.

    Great tips for getting more traffic with YouTube. You would honestly have to be a fool to not start using video marketing. It is so powerful. Aside from the social bookmarking, video responses, ect I also use thetubeviews dot net to get views, comments, favs, you name it. Man, YouTube is great for bringing traffic to your site!

  9. majalah says:

    Youtube is great traffic resource. But, for marketing purpose, is this “targeted traffic”?

  10. Neil Ferree says:

    I heard there was a way to REMOVE the “related videos” feed on YouTube? Are you familiar with this technique and if so, would enjoy seeing/reading how you do it?

  11. George James says:

    Videos work. They are great marketing tool

  12. JNFerree says:

    Seems to me, if you leave a “related” video and if/when someone sees your related video and they view your YT video, there’s a good chance this WILL BE targeted visitor to your website.

  13. Dark says:

    video marketing-have just tried some of your ideas by putting video responses of my own video’s with other ones of mine that are relevant-got some hits already-Thank you

  14. Anil says:

    THANKS A LOT VERY INFORMATIVE, SOON GOING TO MAKE HUGE NUMBER OF YOUTUBE VIDEOS…one more thing we need to care..we should use proper description with good keyword in the description..this will also works good.

  15. Bobby says:

    Great Advice! trying it now

  16. Jason Ryan says:

    I never thought of that. The idea of just taking your own YouTube video url and posting into the comments section of other people’s videos on youtube is the best tip I’ve learned all day.

    Thank you very much for this information. I’ve literally paid hundreds of dollars for internet marketing courses that didn’t teach me as much as your one website has taught me.

    Sincerely,

    Jason Ryan
