Well, the creators of YouTube spelled it out and if the game ever changes, I’ll let you know.
YouTube is a community of people sharing ideas, entertaining, and engaging each other on every topic that you could imagine. So, if you want to be noticed you’ve got to get involved. No one ever met a friend, a spouse, nor a customer just by sitting at home. Therefore, you’ve got to take action today to get people’s attention. Become a vested member of the YouTube Community.
You may be asking, what do I need to do? Here are the proper steps:
- Create a YouTube Channel. Go to http://www.youtube.com/ and click on “Create Account”
- Upload a video. Click on upload at the top of the screen and follow the prompts.
- Increase Your Presence. (Make playlists, join groups, subscribe to other channels, leave comments, and be a part of the community.)
- Create original content. (Inform, Inspire, and Entertain -* You don’t need the most views *)
If you are wondering what this looks like, go to http://www.youtube.com/. Make sure you are logged out and click on the “Spotlight Videos”, “Featured Videos”, and the “Trending” videos to see how the pros are doing it. By the way, the pros are people just like you and me. See how they title their videos, how their content is laid out in the video, and their video descriptions.
The more you repeat these steps the bigger your exposure and following will be. It the Rule of Reciprocity, “Give and it will be given back to you”.
