Owned by Google, YouTube’s reach is remarkable. YouTube statistics report more than 1 billion unique users to their website and over 6 billion hours of video viewed each month (that’s almost an hour for every person on the planet). A study completed by Nielsen reports that YouTube reaches more U.S. adults ages 18 to 34 than any cable network. After reviewing these statistics, it’s easy to see where your potential target audience is. Viral videos are beginning to suggest that the game has changed on YouTube, moving in a more professional direction. Eight out of 10 videos that went viral on YouTube in 2012 were professionally produced. The YouTube audience has matured significantly in the past several years, and with that comes a need for producing content in a professional manner.
Remember that YouTube is more than a video hosting site; it is a powerful search engine. Create content
that answers questions that your customers may have about your services or products. How-to videos are very helpful to consumers, so videos like these are a good place to start. When naming your videos, consider keywords or phrases that people would use when using a search engine to find answers or other information. Keywords help the YouTube search engine find your videos to present to viewers.
