Obviously this next step is not something that is mandatory for video creation, but it is a great way to set up your videos for success. What good does it do to have 100 videos on YouTube if no one ever views them? I am going to suggest four ideas for the posting of your little articles and you will see the value of this when I am finished.
First, post on your own web site. It is vital that you have fresh content on your site and now that you have created these little articles, why not use them to your advantage? You can post them as a blog post or set up a section for articles – or both! Make sure that you place a link in your content that will drive traffic to your YouTube video and by all means place a link in YouTube back to the page or post on your site that contains the matching article. The call to action in both places should lead to a squeeze page that will ultimately lead to your web site and to an offer that you have created. That should help both your site and your YouTube channel.
Next, you could find a good article directory such as Ezine and post some articles there. Sites like that require a lot of articles before they do much good, but if you are ‘in it to win it’ and you plan to be around for a long while and stay consistent with your content creation, then it could be something successful for you.
A third option is Google+. Google owns YouTube and so it should be automatic that when you post a video on YouTube you also post it on Google+. Again, make sure that you link each video post, no matter where it is posted, to the corresponding article and to your squeeze page.
And the fourth option is social media. Use Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or any other social media platform to drive traffic to your site, to your YouTube channel and to your squeeze page.
There are other options as well, but can you see how that if you have even a couple of these sites linked together, working together and driving traffic to an offer you will receive not only free traffic, but quality traffic?
