YouTube Marketing Features That You Are Not Using For Your Business

1. Edit or upload your own transcript

The automatic transcript can be very inaccurate. By transcribing it accurately you can help move your video to the top of YouTube’s search rankings – and Google’s, too.

2. Add clickable links to your video using YouTube’s Creator Studio

The links act just like a call to action button on your website. That means that you can prompt viewers to subscribe to your list, buy a product, or just visit your website. You don’t want to overdo it, but adding annotations is a great way to make your video interactive.

3. Specify a starting point in the video

Instead of making people watch from the beginning. This is a great tool if you want to highlight a particular moment in the video.

4. Organize your videos into playlists

For example, if you have created a series of demonstration videos, you might want to group them all together to make them easy for viewers to find.

5. Utilize YouTube’s vast library of free music & sound effects

All of the available files are royalty free, which means you can use them without paying for them. In order to use the audio, you must be signed into your YouTube channel.

6. Stream videos live on YouTube instead of creating them beforehand

Live video has been getting a lot of attention lately with the addition of Facebook Live and it’s an effective way to demo a product or service or even a live Q & A session. After your video has concluded, it will be archived on your channel so people who missed seeing it live can watch it later.

7. YouTube Creator Studio App

This app allows you to manage the videos on your channel on the go. You can do all kinds of useful things, including updating thumbnails, enabling or disabling monetization, and managing subscribers.

These features can help you create cool and memorable video content that will help you attract new subscribers – and turn those subscribers into paying customers, clients or patients.
