Marketing on YouTube: How to Promote Your
YouTube Videos with Article Marketing
YouTube videos instantly turned William Sledd, a Gap store manager in
Paducah, KY into the hottest style guru on the Internet. Now with almost
60,000 subscribers and millions of views this YouTube blogger turned
Internet celebrity is the owner of the fourth most popular channel on
YouTube. He has a growing coterie of famous friends and development
deals in the works with mainstream media outlets like NBC. He has even
come into the status of beginning his own Website and t-shirt company.
Sledd is not a computer geek. He is not an Internet Marketing guru.
He is just a normal, small-town person his audience can relate to. You
too, can become an Internet Celebrity and sell more books, products and
services using YouTube, when you follow my Internet promotion strategies
My Fool-Proof Plan to Generating Instant Buzz for Your YouTube Videos
with Article Marketing
Step 1: Create an Article That Grabs Readers’ Interest
Once you have uploaded your videos to YouTube, you must heavily
promote your videos if you want to sell more books, products and
services online. One of the most effective ways to broadcast your
message is by writing articles related to your videos and submitting
them to the top article directories, Websites and ezines that accept
While writing your articles keep in mind that the best
result-producing articles are the ones that provide unique, high quality
content that solves at least one piece of a problem puzzle. However, to
convert readers to buyers, you must not give the reader all of the
answers to the “HOW” to solve a particular problem. Instead you want to
tease them with some of the how and top it off with the why it’s
Step 2: Turn Readers into Prospects With a Strong Call for Action and
an Offer They Can’t Refuse
At the end of your article, you can promote yourself and attract
visitors to your YouTube video page with a bio box. This is where most
article marketers make the fatal mistake of failing to encapsulate the
essence of what makes you and your offering unique. For example, they
may write something like:
Blah Blah, is a keynote speaker, seminar leader and author. She has
spoken in 26 countries on four continents. She is president of Yada
Dada, Las Vegas. Check out her YouTube video at___________
Technically there is nothing wrong -- except it is BORING.
You need to stimulate people to visit your Website immediately.
Otherwise, they will forget you are alive five minutes later. Here’s an
example bio box for you to model:
Fitness Expert, Craig Ballantyne helps millions of busy moms lose fat
while gaining muscle with just 3 short workouts a week. Watch his new
YouTube Video at _________ and discover 3 new turbulence training
excercises that will help you burn belly fat now! And as a special
bonus, you’ll receive a FREE special offer to receive Craig’s
Controversial Fat Loss Report revealing the most common exercise myths
that are sabotaging your fat loss efforts.
Doesn’t this make you want to go visit Craig’s YouTube video right
Step 3: Submit your articles to the top article directories to build
links and improve your search engine optimization.
Just like your Website, to increase your YouTube Video page’s search
ranking on Google, you must increase the number of inbound links to the
page. The higher you climb in search results the more unique visitors
you will get.
By submitting articles to the top article directories like
EzineArticles.com, you will instantly receive a guaranteed link to your
YouTube page as long as you follow each directory’s specific editorial
Step 4: Submit your articles to the top, targeted Websites and ezines
that accept article submissions in your niche.
For best results and to climb higher in search engine rankings you
can’t just have any link. You must have links on high-trafficked
Websites with high Google Page Rankings and high Alexa Traffic Rankings.
Plus, by placing your articles on highly-competitive, targeted Websites
like About.com, instead of just second tier article directories that
will publish anyone’s articles, you will win trust in the hearts and
minds of your targeted audience before they even see your YouTube video.
Follow these tips, and you will drive traffic to your YouTube video
pages and create an instant buzz so you can become an Internet celebrity
and sell more books, products and services online.
