3 YouTube Features You Never Knew Existed
1. YouTube Fan Finder
What if there was a way YouTube could bring YOU fans? Would you use it? I think you would. I think all of us would. Well, guess what guys, YouTube does that. It’s one of the MOST OVERLOOKED YouTube Feature on YouTube.
If you have a channel and content on their they will bring you audiences!!! All you have to do is set it up. Here’s a link to get started: YouTube Fan Finder.
Now here’s the catch — you have to submit a channel ad for approval. It has to be short, effective, and YouTube worthy. They provide examples on there and guidelines. This is NOT impossible to do.
2. YouTube Music
I personally am not a fan of videos that don’t carry scores to them. But let’s be real, having music added to your work can be expensive and to be honest, where the heck are you supposed to look for that stuff? What is one to do?
YouTube has a pretty nifty feature where they help you find the rights to the music. They have their own searching platform to find tunes you can add to your videos. Here is a link:YouTube Audio Library.
Oh and guys, they even have FREE MUSIC. So if you’re on a budget and / or looking for some freebies try it out.
3. YouTube Live Events
YouTube is the number one search platform right after Google and guess who owns YouTube? Google.
YouTube is all about instant, visual information. What better way to share info then to stream it LIVE. You can even make a marketing stunt out of this, get people to sign up, collect those emails then broadcast the entire event.
Channels that do live streaming get an instant boost in SEO. Kind of cool if you’re looking to rank for your brand? Imagine if you had a streaming event once a month, now picture once a week? It’s worth it.
On top of that, after you broadcast the event, make sure during production you setup the ability to record the event. This will extend the life of the content. You can just leave it on your channel and let people come back later to watch.
