As they, say “unless you’ve been living under a rock” you must know the huge success, nearly the take-over of internet searches by YouTube.
YT is now the second biggest search engine user wise with staggering stats like:
- The total number of people who use YouTube – 1,300,000,000.
- 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute!
- Almost 5 billion videos are watched on Youtube every single day.
- YouTube gets over 30 million visitors per day
- In an average month, 8 out of 10 18-49 year-olds watch YouTube.
- The total number of hours of video watched on YouTube each month – 3.25 billion.
There’s no denying that YT is massive………. and getting bigger year-on-year, with predictions it will double in size by 2025, how huge is that!!!
We’re such visual animals, we prefer a video clip to reading. It makes sense, you can have the best of both worlds, kinda like a Podcast with pictures, “info for the lazy” lol. I’m no different, I put on a YT clip of a song while I work, its quicker and easier and a lot less work and hassle than battling through some music service or iTunes repetitive, interruptive upsells, damn they’re annoying.
Well now I’m the one not cutting a long story short, so lets get into the meat of it.
We all know/have heard how really difficult it is ranking your beloved Blog on Google, bloody difficult, and all the SEO in the world isn’t going to help, in the short to medium………. to any term, for most of us.
Video ranks, and quickly if it’s liked, but most, like I used to, hear video and quake, “I can’t make a video”, software is tricky, expensive, who wants to learn another complex skill etc etc.
Then we’re told that “Live” video overtakes all others with both Google and FB both saying they give Live videos a boost past other videos………. but who wants to go in front of a camera……….. and say what, to whom about……… you get it, I couldn’t do it either BUT……………
At last for the “rest of us” there are softwares that let you take ANY video, prerecorded or whatever and “Live Stream” it……… how cool is that, you get the same benefits as if you had actually made your own Live video.
I hear some say, “Well that’s great as long as you can make a video in the first place, but I have the creative talents of an amoeba” how does that help me, well…………
There’s another super cool software that lets you turn any Blog post of yours or any Webpage etc etc into a video, yep you heard it, now anyone, even me and you can use our, or others Blogs, articles etc (all done ethically and legally of course) into videos with voice overs (in multiple languages) and animations………….. with just a few clicks
So I hope by now your getting that anyone can take almost any information, article, Blog post and turn it into a slick, editable, ready to go video, that looks professional.
Now take that video and run it through the first software……………. and you have the perfect Newbie ready-to-go Live Event video that can rank on YT 100-1000 times quicker than your humble Blog site on ever could on Google……….. with the bonus of the backlinks to your Blog/websites you’ll get from the YT vids with also increase your Blog/websites rankings on Google!!!!!!!
It’s an over used term but c’mon, these two really are the ultimate No Brainer
