One tip I should have included in my tips for more video views is to post your articles on a timely basis so you don’t leave people waiting. 🙂 It’s been almost 2 weeks since I linked to part 1 of the 10 tips for more video views. Here’s round two of the tips. Once again, these may sound like common sense after hearing them, but you’d be surprised how many people don’t bother to follow even the simplest suggestions for getting more video views.
Social bookmark your video – if your video is worthy, give it a kick in the pants by social bookmarking the video. If it’s really good, suggest your friends do the same.
Guest video blog – a great way to get additional exposure for your videos is to appear as a guest on other people’s video shows. Be sure to reference your own videos so that people know where to find you.
Subscribe to yourself with online newsreaders – There are a ton of online news reading services that won’t track your content if you don’t have any subscribers in the service. A great way to get over this hurdle is to create an account for yourself and subscribe. At least that way you actually exist.
Press releases for newsworthy events – By tying a press release to your videos you can dramatically increase the number of viewers for events in your marketing world.
Have a sitemap – This one is specific to the site where you embed your videos. Since you’re creating posts based on your previous videos per the tip in part one, having a sitemap for your blog is equally important. The second part of this is to have an account with Google Webmaster Tools so that you can submit your sitemap.
