Did you know that YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world?
Of course you did.
Have you ever searched something on Google only to be presented with a one or multiple YouTube video recommendations atop the results list?
We thought so.
It makes sense for Google to promote their YouTube brand within their search results (Google is the biggest search engine on Earth in case you were wondering).
Repurpose (verb) – to change something so that it can be used for a different purpose.
Shout out to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary for the definition, but in the specific instance I am referring to (in layman’s terms); digital repurposing is achieved by taking older content from the past and turning it into an optimized video to create a surge of traffic to your website.
What can be repurposed into a YouTube video?
For the purpose of this blog we will focus on turning content into YouTube videos, but you can also repurpose these items into newsletters, emails, and other various mediums to keep your SEO game relevant and on-point.
Although YouTube is the #2 search engine worldwide, there are far fewer competitors on this platform (compared to Google) due to many companies having a fear of adapting, changing, and investing in video content. Less competition equals more opportunity. What we’re saying is it’s way easier to get on the first page of YouTube than it is to get on the first page of Google (unless you hire us, of course).
Every little bit helps. You don’t need to put together a Tarantino-esque film to get a buzz. But, hey, if you have the budget like Quentin did, I hear hiring Jamie Foxx is a surefire way to get a spike in video views!
YouTube’s algorithm values “watch time” over “view count,” which means it is more important to have people watch your videos as opposed clicking them. Relevant, entertaining videos rank way better than spammy click-bait.
The task at hand is to increase your viewership and build your brand which will ultimately increase lead generation and revenue. Here are some quick pointers on how to implement an effective Call-To-Action.
