YouTube dominates the internet as one of the most widely used social media platforms. In fact, one third of internet users on the planet log on to YouTube – a staggering 1 billion people!
For both large and small businesses, it’s one of the most powerful communication channels available.
We’d like to share 3 key reasons why we believe every brand should have a YouTube channel.
1. 30 million users visit YouTube every day
A staggering 1 billion people in 88 countries use YouTube. In fact, 30 million users log on to YouTube daily. After Facebook and Google, it is the third most visited website on the internet.
With users watching over 1 billion hours of video a day on YouTube, it boasts more engagement than Netflix and Facebook put together.
The bottom line: the potential for spreading your brand’s message is limitless!
2. YouTube is the way of the future
According to a report by Celie O’Neil Hart and Harold Blumenstein of Think With Google, 8 out of 10 mobile users in the 18-49 year-old demographic prefer to watch video content on YouTube more than any broadcast or cable television network.
By 2025, half of users under the age of 32 will not subscribe to a pay-TV service.
Simply put, YouTube is the way of the future. It is the single most effective way for your visual media to reach users on the internet.
3. YouTube is user friendly
The developers have gone the extra mile to make YouTube easy to use for content creators. Simply drag and drop your videos on to the upload page at your channel to share them.
There are some considerations with regard to set up that will boost both your SEO as well as your chances of having your videos viewed but we’ll disuss that in a future blog post.
