Did you know many popular brands were established through the power of YouTube? That’s true! YouTube is a very popular video sharing site, and is the second-largest search engine on the internet, handling more daily searches than Bing and Yahoo!. Because of this known fact, marketers use this site as a tool for promoting and selling their products.
Here are 5 useful techniques you can do to market your flower shop.
- Create a channel – before you can do any promoting, you should first create an account. Creating an account will create a channel where all your videos are stored. The channel alone already gives you privilege to promote your site as you can put a link of your website. The best thing about this is that your flower shop has its own Youtube URL (http://Youtube.com/myflowershop)
- Come up with a short and viral video – remember that anything that exceeds 5 minutes is already boring. Keep your videos to about 2 to 5 minutes to maintain the viewers’ attention. If your message does not fit in a 5 minute video, cut it into parts or series. This way, your viewer will have something to look forward to.
Make videos that are extremely useful and informative. You can go for unique “how-to” videos such as how to pick the right flower type for your girlfriend. You can make it a fun video so your clients won’t get bored. You can even create a commercial for your flower shop if you want. Who knows, your “how-to” video might get shared in networking sites or recommended to others.
- Use tags – This is often forgotten by many video makers. Don’t forget to put tags after creating and uploading your video. Pick the right category for your video. And if there is none that matches perfectly, choose one nearest to your topic.
Don’t be afraid to put as many tags as you want as long as it is relevant to your video. This will give you lots of chances to appear in the related videos sidebar of other’s videos. As a result, more traffic is driven to your channel.
- Use YouTube email and bulletins – no one will see your videos and get to your channel if you don’t do anything. You can use your YouTube email to communicate with your fellow users. YouTube might be a video-sharing site but it is also a social networking site.
Send praises to other users and then tell them about your videos and recommendations. One tip is to not spam other users. Don’t just send them links that are totally unrelated to their likes and niche.
- Leave video comments – this is a way for other users to visit your channel. However, you should remember to keep your comments appropriate to the video you are commenting on. Pick a video that is high ranking or is often visited. Also, be the first one to comment so your video stays on top of the list.
These techniques are relatively easy to do. So what are you waiting for? Go and start filling your YouTube channel with useful videos now. Good luck!
