How to Best Promote Your Sales Promotions

What is a Sales Promotion?

 When done correctly, sales promotions can transform a business.    Most of us these days know sales promotions are usually designed to increase sales or, encourage the use of a service. They are also often one type of marketing strategy confused with general advertising.  In fact, the two are different.  Because, each entices a different part of the buyer’s nature.
Advertising is emotional in nature.  It induces consumers to purchase products or services through images, sounds, and experiences. Sales promotions draw on a customer’s logic.
To get the most out of the efforts you put into creating a promotion, it’s important for you to promote your sales promotion. I know, that’s a lot of use of the base word promote, it’s confusing, but accurate.

Promoting Your Promotion
This concept is often where many small businesses and entrepreneurs come up short and, usually happened in one of two ways.
 The first way is that many businesses simply don’t let their customers and potential customers know there is promotion opportunity going on.
When it comes to small business marketing, the first thought is advertising, but this can add expense. Here are some optimal ways you can get the word out, without breaking the bank.
  • Highlight the promotion on your website home page.
  • Create a web page specifically about the promotion.
  • Post the info on your Social Media Pages and Blogs.
  • Where permitted, include it in guest posts on other pages and blogs.
  • Sent email notifications sent out to your approved email contacts.
These steps will go a long way in getting the information out there.
The second way many businesses aren’t successful with their promotions is that they, get the word out but, put out the wrong information.
Your first instinct will probably be to make your message about your offer, and that is a good place to start.  But, your message should also be about your customer.  More specifically, how they will benefit from the offer you’ve taken so much time to plan and execute.
Let’s say an accounting firm decides to run a discount promotion on all services they provide, for a specific period of time.  To promote this, they start sending emails and posting on Facebook that for a limited time, clients can come in and receive a discount for any service they need.  Most people will see the post or email, make a quick mental note about it, and then move on with their day.
The communication aspect was successful, but the desired conversion wasn’t.  What you need to do next is persuade your client that this will make his or her life easier.
Persuasion begins with building a link into your customer’s head. Start by thinking about your service promotion from your customer’s viewpoint.  Then make a list of the things that may be on your customer’s mind.  Some examples could be, whether or not their job is currently stable, whether they should buy a new car or even, where they are planning their next vacation.
No matter what they have in their heads, there is a good chance they are not thinking about seeing an accountant.  It’s your job to put the idea in their head and then, attach it to the things they are thinking about:
“Want to fly during your next vacation instead of drive?  Let us help you find your maximum deductions and use your larger tax refund to start a vacation fund!”
Next, go on to explain the benefits of having a professional go over their taxes instead of doing them at home.
Last, include an effective call to action: “Call now for your appointment!”
Now that you know how to promote your promotion, take a look at this article on ThriveHive.com for examples of what kind of promotions you can consider offering.

Building a strong business foundation

This post is all about the importance of building a good strong foundation for your business

So what is meant by building a strong foundation?

It is about building a list, in fact not just A list, you can do  that quite happily through the various social networks you are a member of!, it is more about building

Your list and getting your own mindset right, with this combination you simply can't go wrong and will build a strong foundation for your own business

Getting the mindset right?

It might seem a really silly thing to say, but your mindset determines your level of success : )

For example for a lot of people starting with affiliate marketing, they assume that success and income are going to come with either little or very little work, simply because they have 'affiliated' with company X

You really need to be approaching your new venture, with the attitude that  it is 'your business' and its success stands or falls by the decisions made by you and not just with you thinking 'I'll see what happens'

That in itself is tantamount to failure and big time!

Too often you will hear people say, I've not made any money online and on delving a little further into their 'story' it soon becomes clear that which ever venture they have affiliated with, their mindset was not right from the outset

How can you rectify that

This is the easy bit, you can put that right, by 'investing' in yourself and there really is no finer course, than the one found at the top of this blog under the tab

"How to build a strong foundation"

Once you have the 'right mindset' then you can virtually determine your success level and paycheque





Why I chose WorldProfit to promote MOBE

This post explains why I chose the Worldprofit system to promote MOBE

Having followed the 21 step system, it was very clear and apparent to me, that to succeed with MOBE you need to drive plenty of good quality targeted traffic to the sites the company provide you with.

That traffic also needs to be affordable and to provide you with a profit, if not from every customer, then the vast majority of them. The vast majority would be those that decided to take the upsells from the company, through the use of the sales team

Build a list

The other thing that was also clear, was that its crucial to build your own list, this isn't a surprise to me, but its crucial to do thzt. Building your own list requires high converting lead capture pages, which put leads onto your database.

So on looking at several lead systems, which included  worldprofit, pureleverage, myleadsystempro,  your eight steps, click funnels and optimisepress to name but a few of them and evaluating each, it was very obvious that there was only ever going to be one winner

That winner was Worldprofit. The reason for that is this. Like MOBE, WP is a turnkey marketing system, which as defined by the 21 steps system, to be a true business, it needs to operate independently of you, once its set up.

Put another way, it should allow you to work ON your business, not IN your business

Worldprofit passed that test

The system needed to have quality traffic sources, which provide access to a wide range of advertising sources, all of which had to be my customer avatar, or in english, my ideal customer

Worldprofit passed that test

It had to have both bigh converting pre buit, as well as the ability to make custom buikt capture pages, again it passed the test

It also had to have traffic packages that, as defined by the 21 steps economics of traffic, would be profitable either through cuztomers buying them, but who were not interested in MOBE for their own reasons, or who did buy and became a customer of MOBE

Again, Worldprofit passed the test with flying xolours and from the marketing,tracking and optins i have seen, has proved to be a vood business decision, as it allows me to work ON my business, not iN my business.

It gives me time freedom

Worldprofit also pays out generous commissions, to the dealers, as consultants are called on the same day as MOBE and like MOBE is one of the few marketing systems I have seen or used which pays out sales on the back end, not just upfront as so many do

Now if your reading this post and it resonates with you for different reasons as I'm sure it will and you want to find out more about how it can benefit your EXISTING business, then go to the tab at the top called FREE video and claim yours

Alternatively, you might prefer to attend an event in a town near you,where you can get your questions answered, that being the case simply click on the IMF tab and choose  location neR to you.

Bu that is why I chose Worldprofit to promote MOBE

5 Elements that make a successful online business

There are 5 Elements that make up a successful online business

They are

1) Traffic

2) A funnel

3) A filter

4) A follow up system in place

5) A tiered product mix.

This is why traditional affiliate marketing is flawed, becuase most models lack these 5 Elements, which is why, with most Affiliate marketing / MLM companies, to achieve the 4, 5 and 6 figure incomes per month, then you really do need to be prepared to look for the 7 to 10 year mark for this to happen.

That makes this traditional affiliate marketing model flawed, because they rarely pay on the back end or have high ticket items.

In short, High Ticket Affiliate Marketing ventures produce more profit for less sales.

Without the back end sales, affiliates are always going to be looking for the next shiny object in their inbox, because as with JOBS and employees, people always move for better pay. In affiliate marketing terms, that pay is commissions they earn

Churn as leaving is called always comes about when people fully understand the pay plan and realise that the system they are duly told to follow and not embelish, is...flawed.

Which is why High Ticket Affiliate Marketing is the sector to be associated with

You do need a list, but it only needs to be a list of motivated buyers

You need the right type of traffic to that list

The system you use needs to work independently of and from you

Pays high back end commissions right through the product mix

Anything else is just not going to work.

Over $86,000,000, 86, Million dollars paid out!

Now that is a figure well worth writing a post about!

Yes MOBE, which stands for My Own Business Education has paid out over $86 Million dollars in commissions.

This figure has been achieved in just under 6 short years... That is phoenominal by anyones standards and... those commissions have been paid out to people, who are just like you and I

To give you an example of the types of individual commissions, but not naming any names

One guy, based in the UK has earned just under $4, 400,000

A married couple from the US, have earned $1,164,913 In Commissions

A blogger from the US has earned just under $3,000,000 and finally a stay at home mum has earned just over $1,000.000 dollars in commissions

There are plenty more by the way, the ones highlighted are just a select few that follow a very simple 21 step system that you can find out more about by 

Clicking Here

There is nothing different between you and any of them

They all shared one thing in common, a hunger and desire to succeed, because all of them at some stage had been associated with some form of internet affiliate marketing or MLM and were frustrated by the results they were seeing, so decided to 

Try something... Different

That some thing different was the 21 step system, that you can try by clicking the link below

Why you need a facebook Fanpage

This post focuses on why you need a facebook fanpage, and will make absolute sense to you, if you are following the MOBE 21 step system, which is on the Resources page

Success with the 21 step system, means that you absolutely need to target your niche market

There are several places on the resources page of this blog, that you can target your niche market, but perhaps the most crucial player in the market place, without doubt is ... Yes,facebook

However it is not the social network side of facebook, you need here, it is the business side of facebook and you can only use the business side of facebook, through the use of a fanpage.Creating a fanpage is very easy, once you are logged into your account, on the home page, as seen in the image below





You select create a page


That takes you to the following page, where you can then create your own fanpage





The process waks you through setting up your fanpage and equally branding you and building your brand.

So that is why you need a Facebook fanpage.

Why you need an Autoresponder

This post focuses on exactly why you need an autoresponder : )

In case you don't know what an autoresponder is and, there are many online marketers who don't, let me explain what it is, how it works and why you need one

An autoresponder is exactly that, softaware, which responds automatically to your subscribers when they optin to your offer


Time Saving


Your autoresponder, should be your best friend online, because it can do many things for you

Primarily, it will do more presentations of your business opportunity in a day automatically and worldwide than you will ever manage.

It handles the rejections for you

Its does the selling and converting for you, or at least it does, when the messages going to your prospects are sooo good, that your prospect is wanting what you offer, before they have finished reading your offer

It allows you to work on your business, not in it. By that I mean, when you are focused on crafting good email follow ups and broadcasts, that is working on your business, compared to when you are networking with others, then that is working in your business

A good business model, as defined by this System  lets you work independently of it, so you are not tied to it, making repeated posts in facebook group, in the hope of getting a lead or two


Big Announcements



Your Autoresponder, also lets you big announcements on mass to your list, as opposed to indiividual Instant Messages to fellow contacts.

For EG say you had a contact list of several thousand on Linkedin, imagine how time consuming that would be to individually contact all of them with your big news, when at the touch of a button, you can send a message to your entire list, letting them know more details


Seperate Lists


An  autoresponder. lets you seperate your offers, for each target market you deal with.

So if you had a weight loss list and a property list, you can keep both seperate with your autoresponder, so that you can send a specific message to the weight loss group, that more than likely
would be of no interest to the Property group



Statistics



Email marketing is one of the most powerful forms of marketing online and its another area where your autoresponder can help you to define your marketing, by showing you the optin rates, click throughs and other such data, that your list is clicking on.

These type of statistics are crucial in getting your emails opened, where as if you are just 'blindly' marketing to the masses with no clear idea about what you are doing then the chances are you are going to struggle slightly.

Now the one I use can be found on the resources page under the section called building your list

It has all the tools and statistics you need and want online, plus an excellent, excellent fanpage marketing system, which will show you how to get plenty of targeted leads off of facebook.

So in conclusion, that is why you need an autoresponder.

Creating an Effective Social Media Posting Schedule

The frequency of your social media posts can directly impact the number of followers that you get and keep.
If you post too infrequently or frequently, you’ll lose followers. You’ll also have trouble getting people to take notice of your social media accounts. For this reason, you need to come up with a schedule.
A social media posting schedule takes into consideration the following factors:
  • The best time of the day to post
  • The best day of the week
  • The topics you should post about
  • The percentage of promotional content
Determine the Best Time of the Day and Best Day of the Week
The best time of the day to post will vary, depending on the social media platform that you use. Also, your target audience may have different internet preferences.
Don’t forget to take the time difference into consideration. 80% of the US population are in the Eastern or Central time zones. If you’re in California and want to target the largest audience, you’ll want to plan your posts based on EST time.
Engagement tends to peak at the following times during the weekdays:
  • 9 AM EST – overall engagement
  • 1 PM EST – most shares
  • 3 PM EST – most clicks
Next, consider the best day of the week to post. Monday through Wednesday, people are less active on social media. The majority of the population is too busy getting into the work week.
By Thursday, people are looking forward to the weekend and are more likely to spend time browsing on social media.
User engagement peaks on the weekends. This goes against previous studies that showed higher engagement during the weekdays. But, trends change over time.
The bottom line is that you should post between Thursday and Sunday to increase engagement. You should also plan at least one post for 9 AM, and subsequent posts around 1 and 3 PM.
Find Topics That Your Target Audience Will Enjoy
Along with considering the time of the day and the days of the week to post, you need to consider the topics of your posts. Find topics that your target audience will enjoy.
The first place to start is with the platform that you’re using. Facebook makes it easy to share just about anything, but Instagram and Pinterest are more image-centric. This means that content with a compelling image included in the post will be more effective on these platforms.
The topics should also be related to your niche and provide real value to your readers. This could include:
  • News
  • Tips and tutorials
  • Advice and suggestions
Essentially, it needs to contain beneficial information.
You can explore the most popular topics by performing searches through each social media platform. Each of these networks, including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, includes a search box.
Type a keyword into the search box and look at the top results. View the profiles of the original posters of the top posts. Look for posters that tend to share content related to your niche and see what topics receive the most likes, shares, and retweets.
Balance Your Promotional Content
Along with your schedule and topics, you need to balance the use of promotional content. It’s a perfectly acceptable business practice to use self-promotional posts on social media. But, if you use too many promotional posts, you’ll lose followers.
20% appears to be the median where engagement increases or decreases based on the frequency of promotional posts. This means you should plan one promotional post out of every five posts.
If you post once per day, this is one promotional post per week. If you post several times per day, you’ll share a promotional post every other day.
Start using a social media posting schedule to increase the effectiveness of your social media marketing efforts. Along with these suggestions, you can get more internet marketing tips and a system for generating more internet prospects by clicking here to learn about my done-for-you system.

Cha Ching a New Fanpage Subscriber just opted in!

One of the things you absolutely have to do as an online direct response marketing consultant, is to build your list.

Its essential you have your own list, because it is the only asset you ever own online.

To build a list is very easy. You need to have high converting capture pages, which lead to conversions

"Cha Ching Congratulations you just got a new fanpage subscriber opted in"

Page 1


Page 2


Page 3

Advertise page 2, you'll get a further 20,000 visitors to that link

Page 3 and you'll get a further 20,000 visitors to that page

How MOBE will benefit you

This post, will explain how MOBE will benefit you, a fellow business owner.

MOBE, in case you haven't read any earlier posts, stands for My Own Business Education, and applies to any one who falls into the following categories

Traditional bricks and mortar business, EG Pet shop owner, Fish and Chip owner, Pub landlord

Online affiliate marketer, who has chosen to market a product or service they have an affinity too or believe in

The above give you typical examples of what you can apply MOBE to.

So how will this system help you?

It will explain how you can apply the strategies it teaches to your own business, while at the same time, asking questions of your business, questions you have probably never been asked before and in some cases never even thouvht about

As an example, these are  the type of question commonly asked of business owners

"Why did/made you start your business"

"What do you want it to do for you"

You might be able to relate to those two questions, even reading them, you might be thinking, well, I started my business to be able to make some cash

What do I  want to do for me?... Ive not even thought about that.

Before we go on further, consider this for a minute, evryone the world over, is working towards their big holiday... except the big holiday in this case is not the 2 or 3 week annual leave you normally get when you have a break from your business

The Big Holiday in this case is...Retirement. That time when you stop working in your business and enjoy the fruits of your labour by doing what you like most, usually a hobby or travelling

However there is one massive problem with this, which is unless you have a buyer for your business, then you have to continue to work in your business.

The fact is that most business owners, set up their business, yet pay very little attention to any other detail connected with it, such as advertising, profit making and finally selling it

This is where MOBE and the strategies it teaches benefit you.

How?

Put simply, it will show you, how you can, gradually step back from it, scale it up for growth and profits, leading to you building a profitable asset which you can then sell...almost effortlessly.

At the same time that you're doing this, MOBE teaches you how to do what the majority of business owners don't do, which is to work ON your business not IN it

The end result of this is... The big holiday you are working towards, starts to become a reality, far quicker than it is now

How does that thought appeal to you.

This is a real life example of how it can benefit you and your business, the name has been changed, the situation however is true

John started his hokistic therapy business around 8 years ago, its a subject he both loves and is very passionate about and has a fairly large client base he is also a big fan of steam railways and when not working, can be found, with his wife at a fair somewhere. John is 54 (not a crime!)

But as the years have gone by, he has grown increasingly aware, that although self employed, all he has created is...his own JOB and as such was more aware that through events that happened to others in his industry, he had to provide additional income security, but income security that would work independently of him

In short, he needed a 'real business'

So he decided to look very closely at what MOBE had to offer, through its marketing systems and masterclasses which are designed to highlight  and provide solutions for the problems mentioned earliernin this post.

As a result of this, John, has implemented the marketing system and invested in both the Silver and Gold Masterclasses (The links to these can be found on the top tap, with the marketing system link found on the right side bar)

Already just by taking these small steps, it has let John take a step back from his business, by giving him two things that at this time he was quite keen to have

They were...

Additional income, which comes in independently of what he does work wise

Time Freedom, so he can spend more time with his wife and pursuing his hobby.

Prior to MOBE he was working hard with no end result in sight.

Johns story is typical of many independent business owners, myself included until joining MOBE

The MOBE marketing system pays significant commissions PER SALE which in a lot of cases are more than the average monthly pay packet and for working a lot less hours, with far less stress.

That is how MOBE will benefit you.

Proof of MOBE Comissions being paid

This post is about MOBE paying the commissions due from the sales made of their marketing system

The video below explains more






It is rare, especially in this day and age, for anyone, especially the so called top name Internet Marketing gurus to evidence what they earn, from their marketing ventures

Sure you may see screenshots of peoples clickbank accounts, via mailings or if you are one of the marketers who wish to surf traffic exchanges, but beware, such screenshots are almost certainly fake and even if you were earning money from clickbank sales, which is entirely possible, they will be smaller in size than those screenshots relate to and perhaps more importantly than that... Not Verified

Documenting the Journey

Which is one of the reasons this blog was set up, because, for you as a reader, you may well be looking for that 'golden something' online, yet because there is so much garbage out there, promoted so skilfully by excellent copywriting, it is difficult to know whats genuine and what is not... You'll be able to relate to that, so this blog is documenting the journey

So, that said, back to MOBE and proof of commissions paid in the above video

That notification was received in my gmail account on Saturday, swiftly followed by another which stated that due to an initiated recurring bank transfer set up, the money had gone from my MOBE eWallet to my bank.

1st and 15th...


At time of writing this blog post, the commissions have hit my bank today, so naturally thats pleasing enough

That commission by the way, was for 1 sale... Thats right, 1 sale



You see MOBE pays out twice a month to its consultants, those dates being on the 1st and 15th of the Month and you have the option of having the money paid to your bank card, or bank account. Most people prefer to have the money paid into their bank.


It doesn't work!


Being part of MOBE makes your internet or online marketing if you prefer to call it that, far more enjoyable, because it teaches you to do it the right way, paying you much higher rewards, which if you are currently marketing online, promoting low ticket affiliate offers, you may well be frustrated, because they won't be paying out on the back end.

All those types of offers will do is cause you to quit online marketing, because as you will find yourself saying "It doesn't work"

MOBE  however... Proves it does for those that follow it

Blogger v Wordpress

This post is about why I prefer blogger to Wordpress,org as a blogging marketing resource

If you are a wordpress user, then this post will be of great interest to you, because before using blogger, I was a real devotee and massive fan of wordpress.I still have two of them, which you can see by clicking on the links below

By the way, intention of this post is not to get you to convert from wordpress to blogger, its just highlighting why I prefer blogger to wordpress.

The absolute one thing you need to do online, is to build your own list, that list becomes your asset and over time a very valuable asset at that.

The so called Internet Marketing gurus advocate that you use Wordpress, so you can build your list, through the use of informative high quality content

Producing high quality content is a must, having a blog to put it on, is also a must The reason it is a must, is this

Blogs, leverage the entire internet, as long as they are properly indexed so that the search engines pick them up, your blog will get see across the other side of world in minutes quite literally

That said, Why blogger over wordpress?

The reasons are quite simple really, security and hosting are two of the main reasons.

Wordpress blogs account for 27% of the worlds websites. Its an impressive figure, but wordpress sites are also among the easiest to hack into.

Speaking from experience, one of the wordpress sites mentioned above has twice been hacked and taken down. The first time, it was irretrievably lost . The second time, I managed to save it,  as it was backed up

The reason for having wordpress for my hosted blog, was to build my list, through the content being produced on it.

Blogger

So when the blog got hacked for a second time, I looked at  Google blogger as an interim measure.

Two of the things that attracted me most about blogger, were

Free hosting

Security protected by Google

There is something comforting knowing that to actually log into your blogger account or your google account, you have to access it through using your google password

What has been most encouraging about blogger is this... So far, Wordpress hasn't been missed at all

Everything that can be done with Wordpress, is able to be done with blogger, perhaps dare it be said, slightly more easily than it could be with wordpress.

Through the use of Google gadgets, instead of wordpress widgets, you can customise your blogger to exactly how you would like it, so that it still looks professional enough, without losing the effectiveness

Domain Names

With blogger, you initially get a longish blog name, however this can adapted by the use of a domain name, brought through a domain name provider such as name cheap, then adding it to your hosting account, which you can then re~direct to your blogger address

As an example of this the domain http://davehayes.co will re~direct to this blogger


Analytics

Another plus factor, which you can see more about on the blogger tutorials page which can be accessed 


Is the fact that to link to your analytics account, is just a matter of clicking a box and your code is added, compared to the process of adding a plugin to your wordpress site, then connecting the two account together.


Sharing


Once you have written your blog post, which can be done straight to page, or, if you prefer, drafted on Google Docs, then transferred to your pre~saved post, as soon as you click publish, your new post gets shared directly onto Google+

From there, you then have the ability, much like you do with Wordpress, (as long as you have jetpack connected) to share your blogpost to 

Facebook, Twitter and Google + itself

So overall, the use of Blogger compared to Wordpress as a blog marketing resources is one to be highly recommended









A review of The TurfCutters Arms, Boldre, Hampshire

This is a review of the Turfutters Arms, ( below) situated on the Main Road, East Boldre, Hampshire in the New Forest, UK



Myself and my wife, stayed at this very hospitable pub, close to the New Forest, over Easter 2017

My wife had for want of a better word, done in depth research on a number of places, before settling on the Turfcutters and boy what a choice she made

What an absolutely amazing place, very hospitable, from the moment we arrived and got greeted initially by Ged, the friendly kiwi bar manager, who made us feel very welcome, then Simon the owner of the place, who is a very friendly guy, who went out of his way to acommodate guests, their dietry requirements and, despite it being a very busy place, with an incredible amount of trade, given the beautiful scenic and slightly remote location, still found time to take a genuine interest in your day.

Our accomodation, aptly named Rabbit ( if you follow chinese astrology, both my wife and I share the same chinese year of birth!) and shown on the left ( below) was comfortable




Comprising front opening, double doors, which on entering, you will see immediately to your left a lovely, comfortable leather chair, which faces towards the TV located on a table to the right of the front doors.

To the right of  the leather chair, is a lovely double bed and in front of that, is hanging space for your clothes with a small table underneath the hangers.

You will also see a medium sized window, which opens enough to let air into the room and also faces the front of the pub

Also situated in the room, was  a kitchen sink and draining area, which had a kettle, together with ample, tea coffee and sugar sachets to satisfy the thirst of most travellers. Underneath the drainer was cupboard space, which housed cups plates and glasses.

To the right of the sink, was a bathroom, which comprised a toilet, washand basin, bath and seperate shower unit.

Bar Area 

From the accommodation, the main bar area is situated a very, very short walk away and can be accessed from either the rear garden or front area

The bar area is best described as cosy, with a warm atmosphere and very welcoming staff, for who nothing is too much trouble and if you don't happen to have cash in your pocket, can pay by card, or if you are staying in the accommodation, then it can be added to your final bill.

There is a good range of cider, beer and lager available ,togther with an excellent choice of wine

Food

The Food was superb, with a wide selection of reasonably priced food available, all home cooked on the premises the turfcutters breakfast is a must have, along with the Ham Egg & Chips You will also find it filling and nutricious

Walks

If walking is your thing, then there are plenty of places to explore and enjoy, with the village shop being a short distance away, as well as a local church and other places of interest, however if you are planningto venture further afield, then the car is a must

This was our first time to stay in this particular pub, however, we liked it so much we have re~booked again for my wifes birthday in August

How to Grow Your YouTube Following

This post is about how to grow your You Tube following
The use of video marketing is becoming increasingly popular for entrepreneurs. The reason is simple. More people are using mobile devices and the videos are easier to view on these devices than reading a lengthy blog post.
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of competition on YouTube. Getting noticed isn’t always easy. But, with a few simple tips, you can begin increasing the number of followers that you’ve got on YouTube.
With more followers, your videos are more likely to get noticed. Here are several steps that you can take right now to begin growing your YouTube following.
Increase the Value of Your Videos
The first step is to increase the value of your videos. People won’t share videos that don’t provide any real value. You can’t just create a video introducing your business and hope to get thousands of views.
Each video needs to have a specific focus. It’s much like writing a quality blog post. In fact, you can recycle your most popular blog content into videos.
Whenever you write a script for a video, always ask yourself if you’d share this video with others. The video needs to offer some benefit to the viewer. You can provide instructions, demonstrations, or tips related to a specific topic.
Remain Consistent with Your Release Schedule
YouTube offers video recommendations based on what you’ve already watched. If you remain consistent with your release schedule, you’re more likely to gain new subscribers.
If a viewer watches one of your videos without following, YouTube may recommend another your new videos as they’re released. This helps bring viewers back to your channel.
Whether you release one or four new videos each month, you should stick to a schedule. Decide which day of the week you’ll release your videos. Subscribers will know when to check back and your viewer retention rates will increase.
Ask People to Subscribe to Your Channel
Your videos should serve a specific purpose. As with your blog articles, the end of the video should include a call to action. You could tell viewers to follow a link or you can use this call to action to remind viewers to subscribe.
YouTube also provides the option to include an image or graphic to act as a clickable button overlay directly on top of your video. With this clickable button, you can include a link to subscribe to your YouTube channel.
Include a YouTube Widget on Your Website
You should also add a widget or link on your website that connects with your YouTube channel. Increase exposure to your channel by adding these features to your blog or business site.
If you use WordPress, you can find numerous widgets and plugins that allow you to add YouTube videos to your site. You could also add a YouTube subscribe button on your site.
Become a Featured YouTube Channel
You have the option to add “Featured Channels” to your YouTube channel. These are channels that you follow and recommend your followers to follow.
By getting these other channels to recommend you to their followers, you can boost exposure. There are two ways to go about this.
You can either directly ask a channel to add you or you can start following them. There is no guarantee that the other channel will follow you, but it’s still worth the effort.
Interact with People That Comment on Your Videos
You shouldn’t ignore the comments on your videos. Actively respond to these comments. People may leave a comment without following. After responding, they might rethink their decision and start following your channel.
Increasing your YouTube following is one method for improving your online presence. If you’d like to gain access to more internet marketing tips, and a way to generate new sales leads, then click here to learn about my Done for you system
