The Musicians Guide To YouTube Marketing: How To Build an 
Audience Through YouTube Video Promotion 
Today’s lesson is a WEALTH of highly valuable information on one of 
the BEST traffic strategies and fan generation techniques online. 
In Today’s Lesson You Will Learn: 
· Why to include video as part of your marketing strategy 
· What kinds of video you can create 
· How to tag your videos 
· How to promote a video on youtube 
· How to promote your videos elsewhere 
· How to build a community around your channel 
In terms of traffic generation, brand building, and sales, VIDEO is king. 
Your efforts online should ABSOLUTELY include video as part of your 
strategy. 
By now, this should not be news to you. 
There are all kinds of videos you can make, and many places you can 
distribute them. 
There are services, which we will be covering a little later in the lesson, 
that can actually help you distribute those videos across the top video 
sites.

Today we are going to focus on the BIG dog of them all, YOUTUBE. 
Now there are others – and you should try using them, but the good 
news is that once you know and understand how to optimize your videos 
to get lots of traffic on youtube, you can easily feel your way around the 
others and apply the exact same principles. 
Pretty cool eh? 
No I’m not Canadian. Love the Maple Leaves though! 
I’m excited to share this information with you and for you to go and 
apply it and then tell me your results! 
Don’t forget, that was part of the deal. You are taking this information 
one day, one lesson at a time, following through with the exercise, and 
then sharing your results as well as your questions, so i can make this a 
better course for you and your peers. 
Traffic Academy: YouTube Video Promotion 
YouTube actually falls under BOTH Content Marketing and Social 
Traffic, but since it is technically a Social Media Channel rather than a 
search engine, I found it most appropriate to include this module in this 
phase. 
So look, YouTube get billions of views on a bad day… It’s been proven 
that video gets more money than ANYTHING else… 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 3
You probably understand the benefits, and know you need to be doing 
MORE video, but you are probably a little confused, scared of, and 
unsure about how to do it, and do it effectively. 
These things take time to learn. Luckily, you got me, and I got your 
back. 
We will shave a COUPLE YEARS off your learning curve in this lesson 
alone. 
Let’s look even further at the overwhelming power of video: 
While YouTube doesn’t receive as many Page-views as Google, it is 
pretty close. Now let me really drive this point home: 
If you accurately promote a video on YouTube, and get great listings for 
it in YouTube’s keyword search for your chosen terms… 
Several things happen: 
Your top listing will receive almost as many views as a top listing in 
Google. 
If you have a top listing in YouTube (and even if you don’t), you can 
usually win a 1st page listing in Google itself due to your video 
promotion. 
That means video promotion can win you much more visibility and 
market penetration than you would solely concentrating on ranking in 
Google. 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 4
So before we get into the steps and process, let’s look at the types of 
videos you can make that are easy AND effective. 
Types of Videos you Can Create Include: 
1. A video case study with a client 
2. A video teaching how to do something 
3. A video showing people interacting with your product (in a How-To 
Format, Not a Sales Pitch) 
4. An interview with a leader or with a famous person in your industry 
5. Reveal a secret or latest information 
6. Controversial, funny, inspirational, and hot topic content (Be Careful 
Here) 
7. Contests 
8. Cover Songs (self explanatory) 
9. Original Songs (self explanatory) 
1. Video Case Study – If you were a professional you could conduct an 
interview with a client, ask for statistics, findings, results, and the overall 
story. But as a musician you could tell the story of a song, or album, or 
experience that is particularly interesting, engaging, etc. To really knock 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 5
this video out of the park, use D2Cam or Camtasia, available at 
www.camtasia.com, to add screen shots and live video feed of your 
desktop activity so that you can take the viewer through a live demo or 
website. 
2. Video Teaching How To Do Something – If you know any valuable 
skill, let’s say a cool and easy way to play a certain song on guitar, or 
some production technique that always works, etc. What could you 
possibly teach in a how-to video? Perhaps you can do a video on better 
time management and organization, how to balance life and work, and 
how to add inspiration to your work and living environment with 
inspirational calendars. The possibilities are endless. A good rule of 
thumb is that anything you can write about, you can craft into an 
interesting video. The same rules apply – keep it short and sweet, 
actionable and informative, and be interesting, funny, or engaging. 
3. Video Showing People Interacting With Your Products/Merch (in a 
How-To Format, Not a Sales Pitch) – This may not be as effective as 
other types of videos, but be creative and talk about your latest merch or 
upcoming products or packages you are putting together. 
If I had tools or software I had created, I would show how they’re used. 
But I wouldn’t push my own product. I would name other possible tools 
the viewer can use, but since I’m partial to my own tool, I’m going to 
use it as my example. 
This builds trust because they see you’re giving valuable information 
without beating them over the head with a sales pitch. 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 6
4. Interview with a Leader or with a Famous Person in Your Industry – 
You’d be surprised how easy it is to get interviews with very influential 
people including celebrities and famous leaders. Just reach out to 10 
people you’d like to interview with a brief one-page proposal about what 
you’d like to interview them on and how the interview will be used, and 
I am pretty confident at least one or two, if not several, would be willing 
to be interviewed. 
5. Reveal a secret or Latest Information Update – Another great tactic 
for creating popular, viral videos is to monitor trends in your industry 
and hit hot topics as soon as they pop up. If a hot new iPhone is coming 
out, and you sell phone accessories compatible with an iPhone, then hop 
on that popularity wagon and do a video about iPhone innovations. You 
don’t even have to mention your site except to introduce yourself and 
the company you’re with. 
6. Controversial, Funny, Inspirational Content – This is the category of 
video that can get you massive traffic, but it’s harder for companies to 
pull off. You can play it safe with inspirational content, but if you can 
craft a solid video that is really funny or controversial, without 
sacrificing your professional image, you can rake in views and traffic. 
7. Hold a Contest 
If you’re not funny or you don’t feel you could pull off such a video – 
and particularly if you don’t want your company participating in 
controversial topics or conversation –a great solution is to hold a contest 
or encourage your customers to submit videos. 
An incredible example of this is Wiley Books’ promotion of the book, 
“Brewing Up a Business.” They held a contest on YouTube inviting 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 7
people to read the book and then submit a short video showing how they 
implemented the business advice and approach explained in the book 
and what their results were. The book was fun and funky and they kept 
that vibe in their contest and materials promoting the contest. 
The result? Over 60 videos from 60 different video makers all 
discussing and promoting Wiley’s book in a creative and engaging way. 
Think about innovative ways you can get your audience involved in 
discussing and promoting your company and its offerings. 
Regardless of the type of video you create, you can brand your company 
without ever pitching it in your videos. Options include: 
Adding the URL to your company website at the bottom of each video. 
Branding your YouTube channel with your company’s URL, brand 
identity, and calls to action to your site. 
Embedding clickable links or popups within your videos to your web 
pages and offers. 
How to Promote a Video on YouTube: 
· Create a video 
· Tag it according to targeted keywords 
· Create a profile on YouTube & upload video 
· Network and collaborate with popular YouTubers 
· Promote your video elsewhere 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 8
It’ll take time, patience and effort to drive massive traffic to your 
website from YouTube. However, our 
purpose here is to get you moving in the right direction and get you the 
best results with minimal effort. 
So here’s a quick and easy way to promote your video content on 
YouTube which should get you some immediate 1st page rankings on 
the search engines provided that you’re not trying to rank for excessively 
competitive terms with millions of competing websites. 
Step 1. Create your video 
First of all, video content is the most powerful medium for your message 
nowadays. It’s dynamic, it holds longer attention spans. It shouldn’t 
take the place of your written content, but it’s an excellent addition that 
should be on your website and on YouTube. 
TAGGING YOUR VIDEO 
Identify keyword phrases that are well searched on Google and 
YouTube and have a 
· good ratio against competition 
Tag your video when you upload it with those keywords. Don’t forget to 
tag it with names of companies, products, or people you mention 
Setup Google Alerts for your videos, content, and terms that you want to 
track, whenever it gets shared, spread, or mentioned. 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 9
An added benefit is that most savvy companies and industry celebrities 
have set up Google Alerts to notify them whenever Google indexes a 
news or media item that mentions their name or any other keyword they 
want to track. So if you want to get into the good favor of a potential 
partner or mentor, or you want to get on someone’s radar, discuss them 
favorably (or not favorably if that’s your intention!) in one or more 
videos. 
Speaking of Google Alerts, a great way to obtain a pulse of your market 
and your company’s reputation is to set up your own Google Alerts. 
Simply go to www.google.com/alerts. If you don’t already have a google 
account, you can create one for free. Make sure you’re signed in and fill 
out one or more search terms you want to track. Track your company 
name, names of visible executives in your company, company products 
or trademarks, and anything else you imagine. You can also track 
industry news by including some main industry keywords. 
Once you submit your Alert, you will receive email alerts every time 
Google indexes news or media for the keywords you specified. 
Step 2. The next step is to tag your video. It’s relatively simple. Identify 
the keywords you want your video to show up for. This should include 
relevant keywords from your SEO research that are well searched on 
Google or YouTube and have a good ratio against the number of 
websites competing for them. 
You also want to include any relevant people, products, or companies 
that you mention in your video. 
This can be effective for a couple of reasons… 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 10
First: let’s say that your target audience searches the name of a 
particular leader in your industry. Mention that leader in one or more of 
your videos in a meaningful, informative or interesting way, and tag the 
video with their name. It’s sure to get viewed by a chunk of your target 
audience looking for info about or by that person or company. 
CREATE A PROFILE & UPLOAD VIDEO 
Follow the easy instructions on YouTube to create your free account 
Click “My Videos” once logged in, then “Upload Video” 
Again, follow their easy instructions! 
Step 3. Once you know what keywords you want to tag your video with, 
create a free account at YouTube and then upload your video. You’ll be 
able to tag it and you can update those tags later. You can embed your 
video in other sites like your blog or main website using the YouTube 
code provided. 
NETWORK AND COLLABORATE 
That was pretty simple. But once the video is uploaded, most companies 
stop there. Don’t make that mistake. To really give your video viral legs, 
you’ll want to take the next two steps. 
Step 4. First, consider networking and collaborating with popular 
YouTubers in your industry or in related industries. Just keep it focused 
to your audience. If you sell ringtones for cell phones, then it might be 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 11
worth collaborating with a popular YouTuber who does great videos 
about iPhones, especially when a new model or innovative upgrade is 
about to be released. 
This is a great way to quickly win lots of new subscribers. If you 
collaborate with someone who has hundreds of subscribers, and they 
promote the video on their channel and you promote it on yours, you’re 
bound to pick up quite a few new subscribers as long as the content is 
solid. 
PROMOTING YOUR VIDEO ELSEWHERE 
Include videos in your primary website, blog, and social profiles 
Distribute videos to multiple video networks 
TubeMogul.com 
Offer useful video content to partners and to other industry sites 
Here’s how you can really knock your own socks off! 
And it’s so easy. 
Step 5. First, make sure you embed one or more of your videos on your 
primary web site. Your visitors will consume video content better than 
written content, and it will help you differentiate your company from 
your competition. Great videos to have on your main web site include 
case studies, how-to videos, and interviews. 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 12
Next, consider video blogging or at least creating a post on your blog for 
each new video you do. This allows you to further promote your video 
through the bookmarking networks like Digg and Delicious. 
You can also post links to these pages to Twitter, Facebook, Google + 
and any other social networks that your business is active on. 
Next, and here’s a great promotion method that gets 1st page rankings 
on google within 24 hours for moderately competitive to mildly 
competitive terms: 
Blast your video out to dozens of video sites simultaneously. You can 
quickly and easily do this with free video promotion tools like 
TubeMogul. You can select more robust, paid options, but the basic 
video blasting software is free and allows you promote your video across 
all the major video networks, bookmark it on the major social 
bookmarking sites, track videos by producer. This is great for 
competitive intelligence, and it easily tracks which web sites are linking 
to your video. If your video is tagged with the right keywords, you can 
see rankings within hours or days! 
Another great promotion method is to offer your videos as content to 
partners and other industry colleagues that they can use and publish. For 
instance, if you do a video case study, offer it to an industry association, 
web journal, research or media firm, etc. Also consider any content 
partners you provide articles to per our earlier discussion of article 
marketing. You can use those same principles to offer video content. 
Homework: 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 13
The key thing to remember is that I HIGHLY recommend that you 
include video into your bigger mix of marketing strategies, and that you 
get producing your first videos ASAP. 
You can go to Animoto.com or a site like it, and create slideshow videos 
by adding pictures and words put to music and then automatically 
creates a video, and you can do that very easily, for free or very cheap if 
you get the paid account. 
The best way to get better at videos is to go and do it. Create your first 
video. Get ON CAMERA, unless you are too shy, but remember, no one 
CARES what you look like. 
1. Go and get a channel with your keywords… now. 
2. Build that channel with playlists and reviews at the very least 
3. Start building friends and subscribers by inviting, adding, subscribing, 
etc. (Go tell all your facebook friends, email list, twitter followers, and 
other social media fans and followers to go and subscribe and that you 
are going to be delivering some great video content soon.) 
4. (For you Go-Getters) Go and create your first video, and follow 5 
steps outlined. This may take more time than you may have, so it is an 
optional step. The previous three, however, are not. If you can only 
apply them right now that is fine. Save this email and return to complete 
step four and go through this lesson again when you get the chance. But 
DON’T forget to come back and do this when you are going to create 
your video. 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 14
Tip: Create Google Alerts at www.google.com/alerts (This is very easy 
and a great way to monitor your keywords, content title, brand mentions, 
and any topic you are interested in.) 
Now i know that was A LOT. But you can ALWAYS go back and 
reread it! I’m not wasting any of your time here with fluff, and I hope 
you are digesting and applying all the material we’ve covered. 
Again, if you have questions, or a success to share and possibly be 
FEATURED, go ahead and reply back. 
If you want further help in the form of either personalized coaching or 
consulting, give me a call at 734.417.0227 (or email me at Jamie at 
Jamieleger dot com) 
Over the last decade of trial and error, successes and failures, hundreds 
of clients and students, and over 13 months in actual production; i’ve 
been able to reduce the complexity of our business model as Modern 
Content Creators (Musicians/Artists/Comedians/D2Fan Brands) down to 
a simple yet extraordinarily complete framework. You’ll learn all the 
moving parts, how to use the tools, formulate effective strategies, as well 
as the most cutting edge tactics for how to build a loyal audience that 
loves you. 
There are no tricks, potions or magic pills being offered here, only a 
roadmap i’ve created with care and attention to detail for those I am 
honored to serve.

II. Video marketing tips 
#1: Take advantage of video’s 
branding opportunities 
For branding purposes, have your 
company logo displayed 
prominently somewhere on the 
screen. You can do this at all 
times, or during key times in your 
video. 
In the image below, notice how the company logo is displayed in the 
upper-left corner. You can display your logo throughout your video or 
only at key times. 
#2: Include your URL in your video 
When you edit your video, take advantage of the different editing 
features. One easy feature is to add a text box to your video. This is 
where you can display your website address and it’s a great way to get 
exposure. 
Here’s a screen shot of Mari Smith’s YouTube channel. Notice how she 
used a text box in her video to display key information, including her 
website URL at the end of her video. Smart move! 
#3: Make your title count 
Just like a headline to a blog post, video titles can pull powerful traffic. 
There are two main reasons why the title is so important. One, a great 
title can instantly grab a viewer’s attention. 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 16
Two, when you use the appropriate keywords in your title, you are more 
likely to show up on search engines when people are searching for your 
topic. And remember Google owns YouTube, so there’s a story 
connection between video and searching. 
#4: Provide excellent content 
Take some time to think about your ideal viewer. What do you know 
that they’ll find valuable? What can you teach them? “How-to” videos 
are extremely successful because not only do they offer great value to 
your viewer, but also you’re able to showcase your knowledge and skill, 
thus positioning yourself as an expert. This is key as you continue to 
grow your brand 
#5: Always provide an HTML link 
When you post on YouTube, you have the option to write a short 
description of your video. Always start with the link you want to drive 
your viewers to so you don’t miss this key opportunity. 
Here’s a snapshot of the description boxes from one of my YouTube 
videos. Notice the placement of my website URL (it’s the first thing 
you want to put in the box!) and the keywords I used in my title as well 
as the description. 
#6: Go beyond YouTube 
Most people post their videos on YouTube. In addition to this, make 
sure to always embed your video on your own website. This will 
increase the amount of time people spend on your website and help grow 
a captive audience. 
Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 17
Also, Google’s algorithms consider how many times a video is viewed, 
and embedded video views you receive get added to the ‘views’ tally on 
YouTube. This is important for showing up in Google search results!

Now there are others – and you should try using them, but the good news is that once you know and understand how to optimize your videos to get lots of traffic on youtube, you can easily feel your way around the others and apply the exact same principles. Pretty cool eh? No I’m not Canadian. Love the Maple Leaves though! I’m excited to share this information with you and for you to go and apply it and then tell me your results!

Traffic Academy: YouTube Video Promotion YouTube actually falls under BOTH Content Marketing and Social Traffic, but since it is technically a Social Media Channel rather than a search engine, I found it most appropriate to include this module in this phase.

  • 4. You probably understand the benefits, and know you need to be doing MORE video, but you are probably a little confused, scared of, and unsure about how to do it, and do it effectively. These things take time to learn. Luckily, you got me, and I got your back. We will shave a COUPLE YEARS off your learning curve in this lesson alone. Let’s look even further at the overwhelming power of video: While YouTube doesn’t receive as many Page-views as Google, it is pretty close. Now let me really drive this point home: If you accurately promote a video on YouTube, and get great listings for it in YouTube’s keyword search for your chosen terms… Several things happen: Your top listing will receive almost as many views as a top listing in Google. If you have a top listing in YouTube (and even if you don’t), you can usually win a 1st page listing in Google itself due to your video promotion. That means video promotion can win you much more visibility and market penetration than you would solely concentrating on ranking in Google. Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 4
  • 5. So before we get into the steps and process, let’s look at the types of videos you can make that are easy AND effective. Types of Videos you Can Create Include: 1. A video case study with a client 2. A video teaching how to do something 3. A video showing people interacting with your product (in a How-To Format, Not a Sales Pitch) 4. An interview with a leader or with a famous person in your industry 5. Reveal a secret or latest information 6. Controversial, funny, inspirational, and hot topic content (Be Careful Here) 7. Contests 8. Cover Songs (self explanatory) 9. Original Songs (self explanatory) 1. Video Case Study – If you were a professional you could conduct an interview with a client, ask for statistics, findings, results, and the overall story. But as a musician you could tell the story of a song, or album, or experience that is particularly interesting, engaging, etc. To really knock Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 5
  • 6. this video out of the park, use D2Cam or Camtasia, available at www.camtasia.com, to add screen shots and live video feed of your desktop activity so that you can take the viewer through a live demo or website. 2. Video Teaching How To Do Something – If you know any valuable skill, let’s say a cool and easy way to play a certain song on guitar, or some production technique that always works, etc. What could you possibly teach in a how-to video? Perhaps you can do a video on better time management and organization, how to balance life and work, and how to add inspiration to your work and living environment with inspirational calendars. The possibilities are endless. A good rule of thumb is that anything you can write about, you can craft into an interesting video. The same rules apply – keep it short and sweet, actionable and informative, and be interesting, funny, or engaging. 3. Video Showing People Interacting With Your Products/Merch (in a How-To Format, Not a Sales Pitch) – This may not be as effective as other types of videos, but be creative and talk about your latest merch or upcoming products or packages you are putting together. If I had tools or software I had created, I would show how they’re used. But I wouldn’t push my own product. I would name other possible tools the viewer can use, but since I’m partial to my own tool, I’m going to use it as my example. This builds trust because they see you’re giving valuable information without beating them over the head with a sales pitch. Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 6
  • 7. 4. Interview with a Leader or with a Famous Person in Your Industry – You’d be surprised how easy it is to get interviews with very influential people including celebrities and famous leaders. Just reach out to 10 people you’d like to interview with a brief one-page proposal about what you’d like to interview them on and how the interview will be used, and I am pretty confident at least one or two, if not several, would be willing to be interviewed. 5. Reveal a secret or Latest Information Update – Another great tactic for creating popular, viral videos is to monitor trends in your industry and hit hot topics as soon as they pop up. If a hot new iPhone is coming out, and you sell phone accessories compatible with an iPhone, then hop on that popularity wagon and do a video about iPhone innovations. You don’t even have to mention your site except to introduce yourself and the company you’re with. 6. Controversial, Funny, Inspirational Content – This is the category of video that can get you massive traffic, but it’s harder for companies to pull off. You can play it safe with inspirational content, but if you can craft a solid video that is really funny or controversial, without sacrificing your professional image, you can rake in views and traffic. 7. Hold a Contest If you’re not funny or you don’t feel you could pull off such a video – and particularly if you don’t want your company participating in controversial topics or conversation –a great solution is to hold a contest or encourage your customers to submit videos. An incredible example of this is Wiley Books’ promotion of the book, “Brewing Up a Business.” They held a contest on YouTube inviting Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 7

Think about innovative ways you can get your audience involved in discussing and promoting your company and its offerings.

Branding your YouTube channel with your company’s URL, brand identity, and calls to action to your site. Embedding clickable links or popups within your videos to your web pages and offers.

You can go to Animoto.com or a site like it, and create slideshow videos by adding pictures and words put to music and then automatically creates a video, and you can do that very easily, for free or very cheap if you get the paid account.

  • 16. II. Video marketing tips #1: Take advantage of video’s branding opportunities For branding purposes, have your company logo displayed prominently somewhere on the screen. You can do this at all times, or during key times in your video. In the image below, notice how the company logo is displayed in the upper-left corner. You can display your logo throughout your video or only at key times. #2: Include your URL in your video When you edit your video, take advantage of the different editing features. One easy feature is to add a text box to your video. This is where you can display your website address and it’s a great way to get exposure. Here’s a screen shot of Mari Smith’s YouTube channel. Notice how she used a text box in her video to display key information, including her website URL at the end of her video. Smart move! #3: Make your title count Just like a headline to a blog post, video titles can pull powerful traffic. There are two main reasons why the title is so important. One, a great title can instantly grab a viewer’s attention. Video marketing. Free pdf download examples Page 16
  • 17. Two, when you use the appropriate keywords in your title, you are more likely to show up on search engines when people are searching for your topic. And remember Google owns YouTube, so there’s a story connection between video and searching. #4: Provide excellent content Take some time to think about your ideal viewer. What do you know that they’ll find valuable? What can you teach them? “How-to” videos are extremely successful because not only do they offer great value to your viewer, but also you’re able to showcase your knowledge and skill, thus positioning yourself as an expert. This is key as you continue to grow your brand #5: Always provide an HTML link When you post on YouTube, you have the option to write a short description of your video. Always start with the link you want to drive your viewers to so you don’t miss this key opportunity. Here’s a snapshot of the description boxes from one of my YouTube videos. Notice the placement of my website URL (it’s the first thing you want to put in the box!) and the keywords I used in my title as well as the description. #6: Go beyond YouTube Most people post their videos on YouTube. In addition to this, make sure to always embed your video on your own website. This will increase the amount of time people spend on your website and help grow a captive audience. Video marketing.
