3 Ways to Generate Traffic via Youtube

Traffic is the lifeblood of any online business. If you want to make money online once you have your business setup the only way to make money is by generating traffic.

Now there are loads of different ways to get traffic to your website or offer, but for the sake of this article the focus will be on Youtube.

If you are not camera shy or afraid of doing videos Youtube is a great way to get people in front of what you want them to see.

It’s the second most visited search engine in the world behind Google. Meaning…people are watching and looking for information by the flocks.

When I first started doing Youtube videos I was nervous and figured my videos were not that great.

And to this day I think that, but I’ve made countless friends from my Youtube videos and even sales.

And it was all free!!!

Uploading videos to Youtube is an easy way to show people who you really are instead of just allowing them to read your blog posts or see your offer.

You give them a reason to like or dislike you, but more importantly to see who you truly are in the flesh, which helps in building that relationship with them.

One of the main issues I had when coming up with Youtube content was ideas on what videos to create.

Hopefully, this post will help you get over that hump and get you started with great Youtube content as soon as today.

The idea behind these videos are to show your expertise or knowledge on a particular topic.

Let’s get started on the first video you can create:

1) Talking on a Particular Topic

This is the easiest and most basic of the three, but very effective in getting your point across. You have probably comes across videos like these online. All it takes is a camera, a topic, and the ability to upload the video to Youtube. The only time required is how long it takes to do the video and however much time is takes to upload it. You usually want these videos to be in between 2-5 minutes so people don’t lose interest. Be precise and to the point with your thoughts or ideas on your topic or niche.

2) Doing “How-to” Videos

“How-to” videos do very well on Youtube because people enjoy being able to actually learn how to do something. As stated earlier it’s the second largest search engine around and people are usually looking to figure out solutions to a problem they are having. If you are comfortable with doing how to videos you can easily generate traffic using this method. You can demonstrate these videos yourself or you can do a presentation using pictures. People enjoy looking for ways to do things on their own and you can be that gap for them using this method. Software like screencast o matic (http://www.screencast-o-matic.com), camstudio (http://www.camstudio.org), or camtasia (http://www.techsmith.com) can be used to create these videos. You may need to learn how to edit, but practice makes progress.

3) Interviewing an Expert

Lastly, you can interview an expert. This method is awesome because you don’t necessarily have to know much about the topic, but just knowing the right questions to ask the expert. This in turn increases your credibility with your viewers. It also shows that you associate yourself with like-minded people and have the ability to get top notch interviews.

Other benefits include getting traffic from the interviewers fans. Most people you are interviewing will probably let their viewers know that you will be interviewing them and will probably invite them to listen to the interview. This helps boost you up a bit because they feel like you are an expert as well. You get high-quality content without really having to put in much work. And the traffic you get will be highly targeted traffic, which is generally what you want.

Begin today to put any of these three methods to use. Work on trying all three and become an expert in your niche or field of work and see how quickly you can boost your traffic all for free.
