Types of Online Marketing Social Media Platforms

Social Media Favorites

The biggest and most widely used would have to be Facebook, Youtube and Intstagram.  But others include Linkedin, Snapchat, Twitter, Pinterest, Quora, Vine, Persiscope, and the list goes on!

Social Bookmarking Sites

Google+, CafeMom, Gather, Twitter, Linkedin, Tumblr, Posterous,  Stumble Upon, Digg and Delicious, Reddit, Newsvine, Scoop it, Slashdot and many more!

Social bookmarking is quite good where you can add your web pages and posts on these sites and always have easy access to them.  People will be inclined (if it is good content) to bookmark for later, and possibly share them too.

what types of social media are there

Blogging and Websites

Wealthy Affiliate, Wix, Weebly, WordPress, Wix, Yola

My favourite is definitely blogging.  You can communicate your ideas, knowledge, video content and direct your audience to products or services with your blog.  But is a blog social media and can you market and share with it?

Well according to Wikipedia yes it is.  Check out the article that explains how user generated content such as posts and articles make up a large part of social media.

So many topics can be covered on your blog and website, just look around mine and it will be testament to that!

Video Sharing Sites

Youtube, Vimeo, Viddler, Daily motion and Veoh

Of course the popular one here being youtube.  With over 100 hours of video being uploaded every minute – yes you heard right – every minute, there is no shortage of videos to view.

And if you are one of the people who do upload videos then chances are your video will be viewed.  Youtube has over a billion users, which is over one third of the world’s internet users!

But as you saw above there are other video sharing sites that you can use for your social media marketing as well.

Photo Sharing Sites to share you favorite pics

Instagram, Photobucket, Google photos, Pinterest, Dropbox and Flickr just to name a few.

Instagram is probably the most popular one here with over 500 million active users and comes in behind Facebook.  (Facebook can be considered a photo sharing site too!)  But, it seems people love engaging, simply with images.

With ease of use, and being able to follow absolutely anybody, Instagram is definitely a favorite, and widely used by the younger generation.  But it definitely is a tool that can be used for your business.

In Summary

I do hope you enjoyed this brief summary of online social media sites.  Look the list could go on and on, however these are probably the most widely used for your blog posts, video marketing or business opportunities.  One thing is for certain.  You will never have lack of platforms to share your content on whether for business purposes or personal use.

Perhaps you know of other social media platforms that can successfully be used for your business.  Feel free to add a comment and list them below.

How to Get Traffic from Youtube

How to get traffic from Youtube

I want to share today how to get traffic from Youtube, and in general from your videos being found on Google.  And also to show you that putting good keywords in the right places on these videos is vital when you upload them to Youtube.

Video gets indexed well in Google rankings if you know what you are doing.  And people watch alot of video these days.  So if you not only blog, but also do videos for Youtube then you are a step ahead of alot of business owners online. Because now, you can make a blog post embedding the video you just created, which will vastly increase your chances of getting traffic to your website from Youtube and possibly found on Google.

So to Recap on Keywords

Make sure you are doing a thorough keyword research for your keywords.  There is no point choosing keywords that look great because they have so much traffic but are really competitive.  I can give you the tip right now, there is no way you will rank well with them, or worse still, not get any traffic back to your website.  So be mindful of what keywords you use.  Here is a great keyword search tool that assists in getting low competition keywords – and your first 30 searches are free!

Making Videos and Uploading

There are many ways you can do video these days.  You can capture your screen with programs like Screencast-o-matic  or  Camstudio.  You could do a slide show presentation with free software like Powtoon or Animoto. Perhaps video marketing is right up your alley and you enjoy talking and being in front of the camera. These days you can easily video something on your smart phone, and upload it to Youtube.  

Gone are the days of really sophisticated and expensive equipment to do a video.  And if you are interested in video marketing, facing your fear of video and then check out my review here on awesome training that will have you, not only video marketing – but taking attraction marketing in your own videos to a whole new level!

Once you have uploaded to Youtube, make sure you are putting in your low competition keywords and more importantly in the right places.  In your title, and description and also adding relevant tags as well.  And always give a CTA – a Call to Action.  There is no point doing all this work, being found on Google and Youtube then not providing the next step (link to click) for your visitors to do.  Make sure you lead people to click on a link that takes them back to your website.

how to get traffic from youtubeYou can choose a thumbnail from selected still images that are from your video or design one yourself.  Here is one I designed that can be seen easily seen when people are scrolling through their Youtube feeds. Be clear and even add curiosity to your titles to get more clicks!

Also, check your advanced settings in Youtube and be certain you are selecting appropriate things for your videos like allowing comments and your recording date etc.

 

Summary

Making videos can become a quick and easy thing to do.  What this does for you is not only add another way for you to be found in Google, but you can now make another blog post and incorporate the video you have just created.  So you will have more quality content and the possibility of being found everywhere!

Ideas for Photo Sharing Sites of your favorite pics!

Pinterest
Instagram
Flickr
Photobucket

All though stated above as our favorites, Instagram and Pinterest are also great photo sharing sites. And the same goes for Flickr. Photobucket is also a place you can upload images. Writing quotes and text on images is also an idea to get your message and website out “there.”  Do check out my Free resources page to see tools you can utilize to do just that!

The Blogging Idea – Not Social Media but still great for Business Advertising!

What is great about blogging, is that your posts are out on the internet forever.  The key however, is to learn SEO – search engine optimization correctly and know how to get good low competitive keywords.  Your blog posts do not end up on Google’s Page 1 and in front of your audience out of pure luck. There are some back-end strategies involved.

3 no 1 keywordsAnd as you can see from my picture, landing on Google’s Page 1 took some creative keyword searching. For every blog post I write, I endeavor to do the same – get my content ranked high!

You can check out the keyword tool I use (and get 30 searches free!) to successfully get my posts landing almost exactly where I want them!

Even though a blog is not necessarily a social media platform. It is a platform that truly stands on its own and can get unlimited content and advertising in front of your audience pretty much forever.

Blogging is hands down my favorite!  You can check out a Review on the platform I am part of, where you can share your passion and make money blogging!

The lists above could probably go on and on.  However, the sites I have shared with you, are generally the most widely used for blog posts, video marketing or business rlated ads.  One thing is for certain.  You will never have a lack of platforms to share your content on whether it’s business or pleasure that is for sure!

I do hope you enjoyed this brief summary of some of the best social media advertising platforms.

Youtube Video Marketing Strategies

Are you looking at Youtube video marketing strategies to get more traffic and eyeballs in front of your blog and videos?  Then good on you!  You are definitely on the right track if you choose to pursue video marketing.

Having purchased and owning Youtube since 2006, Google tends to favor Youtube videos (amid other authority blog posts) and ranks them well in searches. There will often be times when you do a google search and you will see displayed within the results a few youtube videos as well.

Because, who doesn’t like to watch video?  I know I do.

And with so many people, young and old and businesses taking the internet by storm suggests it’s the best strategy to take if you want to be ahead of the pack.

video marketing strategiesDoing video marketing and getting your videos onto your Youtube channel and embedded in your blog posts is definitely the way to go.

So why is that?

Well using these Youtube video marketing strategies will without a doubt quicken your traffic flow.

And are you branding yourself?  If not, then maybe you should consider it. For 1, imagine becoming the authority in your niche because people get familiar with you on video talking about solutions to their problems.  And secondly, there is nothing better than getting someone to know, like and trust you really really quickly, through video.  Why?  Because it’s raw, it’s real and it is you!

 

Video Marketing Ideas

Here is a straight-to-the-point training that you can check out to get some ideas to do some simple videos for your marketing.  In this quick 6 min video tutorial, you will learn how you can create videos from existing posts on your blog.

You will see how simple is it to process these ideas using Screenflow in Mac or Screencast for PCs, (of course there are is probably other software than can record your screen and available online for free.)

Also explained is the sections of your video and how it should be set out.  People do visit Youtube to watch video however they don’t want to sit around for lengths of time to watch a long drawn out tutorial.  (Yes we do in company training’s etc and we don’t mind then), but try to keep your videos short and to the point as this small training below demonstrates that here.

In the video also, Kyle refers to pointing your visitors back to Wealthy Affiliate, which of course is what I am part of – you can learn more here in a Review about this program –  however you can use these youtube video marketing strategies to point back to any business, service or product that you are promoting.

The Good & the Bad

The Good:

The site is set out well and learning material can be found quickly and easily.
