YouTube.com Video Length Best Practices

  Don’t Go Long!

  Readers have short attention spans.

  The best e-commerce videos are between 1-2 minutes.
  HOWEVER, industry specific videos may vary.

  IE: Mesothelioma: Asbestos Mesothelioma Symptoms may be longer than 2
  minutes and be a multi-part video series

  YouTube Limits your video to 10 minutes of 10G
YouTube.com Videos Are Made To Be Seen

 Don‟t Hide the videos on your site!

 Videos hidden behind a text link have a .5 to 2 percent click-through rate.

 Those with a thumbnail link have a 6 to 14 percent click-through rate.

 Those embedded right on the page, have a 25 to 45 percent click-through rate.

 Production cost is the same no matter where you place the video.

 So get the most out of your video!
Develop a BackLink Strategy

  Create a System to Generate BackLinks

  - Create a signature for commenting on blogs, forums, etc that includes a link to
  your video
  -Comment on related videos and add a link to your video
  - Use videos in your email marketing, link to your page where your video lives
  - Social bookmarking, Content Syndication & Social Media Marketing
  - Comment on forums of .gov, .edu and .org sites
