I. Video marketing content for you! 
In his book Entrepreneur Magazine's Ultimate Guide to YouTube for 
Business, marketing and public relations consultant Jason Rich show 
you how to master the secrets of successful "YouTubers" and put your 
brand, product or service in front of millions of potential viewers. In this 
edited excerpt, the author outlines 12 ways you can promote and market 
your small-business YouTube videos. 
When it comes to marketing and promoting your small-businessYouTube 
videos, follow these 12 basic strategies: 
1. Start by using the tools available directly through YouTube. For 
example, provide a detailed and accurate title and description to 
each of your videos, and associate tags (keywords) that are directly 
relevant.

2. Use a call to action within your videos to encourage people to 
like, rate, comment on and share your videos. 
3. Begin by promoting your videos to the people you know, 
including your real-life friends, relatives, customers and clients. 
Ask these people to watch your video(s) and share them with their 
online friends. 
4. Take advantage of the power and capabilities of the online social 
networking sites to promote your videos. As a spokesperson for 
your company, for example, become active on Facebook, Google+ 
and Twitter, as well as other relevant services. Be sure to create an 
online presence for your business on Facebook and/or Google+, and 
then use that presence to promote your videos. 
5. Incorporate your videos into your own company’s website and 
blog. 
6. Share links to your videos with your existing customers or clients 
via opt-in email. 
7. Use public relations techniques, such as using press releases to 
contact bloggers, editors, reporters and producers in order to 
generate free media coverage for your videos in mainstream media, 
as well as in blogs that cater to your target audience. 
8. Get your videos (and your YouTube Channel page) listed with 
the major search engines, including Google, Yahoo! and Bing, and 
then focus on SEO strategies to get the best possible listing 
placements.

9. Try to collaborate on videos with other companies that are 
already utilizing YouTube effectively and that are targeting the 
same audience, but that are not in direct competition with you. This 
will allow you to capture the attention of your collaborator’s 
viewers and subscribers. 
10. Start promoting your YouTube channel within your company’s 
printed catalogs, brochures, and sales materials, as well as within its 
existing traditional advertising. 
11. Consider paying for keyword advertising on Google, Yahoo!, 
Bing and Facebook. Google AdWords for Video is also a very cost-effective 
and powerful tool for promoting YouTube videos. 
12. If you have the budget, hire a YouTube video marketing 
company to help you plan and implement an online promotional 
campaign for your videos. 
II. Video marketing tips 
#1: 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 3
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. 
#2: 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. 
#3: 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! 
#4: 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.

#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. 
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!
