YouTube           

YouTube was founded by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim. They were fellow employees of the premiere online payment company at the time the video sharing website was launched on April 23, 2005. There was amazing growth within months, and before the close of 2006, more than $11.5 million had been invested in the enterprise. In 2006, YouTube was named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year.” PC World magazine dubbed YouTube the ninth of the 2006 top 10 best products. With such an auspicious beginning, it’s not surprising that the site remains a top online attraction. YouTube is an excellent search engine optimization (SEO) tool.

The Power of the Platform

The best advertising platforms are those that reach the most people in a meaningful way, and YouTube has a colossal daily audience. More than 1.3 billion people in the world use this social media platform. Statistics for 2017 show that 5 billion videos are watched on YouTube daily. Every 60 seconds, 300 hours of video are uploaded onto this mega social media platform. The daily number of visitors on YouTube is 30 million. The monthly average number of people between 18 and 49 years old who watch YouTube is 8 out of 10. YouTube will be a large part of this astounding forecast about viewers under 32 years old: By 2025, half of them won’t subscribe to a paid television service. Already, video platforms are preferred to watching TV by 6 of every 10 people.

YouTube is where viral videos are usually posted. There have been more than 10,113 YouTube videos that have had 1 billion-plus views. There are even more astonishing statistics, but perhaps none more than this one: Only 9% of U.S. small businesses use YouTube. What a missed opportunity for millions and what a tremendous opportunity for those who post YouTube videos!

Put YouTube to Work for Your Business

No need to be intimidated by the number of videos continuously being loaded on YouTube. The chances of a business-related video being watched are much greater than for personal videos. The following are exciting statistics for any business ready to invest in video marketing using YouTube:

  • Consumers prefer watching rather than reading about a product or service – four times as many prefer videos.
  • Almost half of all Internet users try to find a video about a service or product before they visit a store.
  • Four of every five consumers consider demo videos helpful.
  • When videos are used by marketers, revenues grow 49% faster than with those that don’t use videos.
  • You do not have to produce an elaborate video. Almost two-thirds of all consumers prefer that a video be under a minute long.
  • Consumers are literally waiting for more businesses to utilize videos. An extensive survey found that 43% of adults want more video content to be available from marketers.

 

YouTube is a major social network, and it can help your business be found. Videos help improve SEO, and they can greatly increase brand exposure. At Flywheel Marketing, we will help you incorporate YouTube videos in your online marketing plan and much more.
