Business owners wanting to build online brand awareness will need to embrace a variety of different technologies including social media. One way you can build online awareness is by using platforms like YouTube but you need to have the right approach in order to reach your full potential.
Tips to Follow when Marketing on YouTube
Do you want to create your own YouTube Channel or partner with someone who already has their own established channel? While it may be tempting to create your own YouTube Channel and buy YouTube views to reach a critical mass of visitors it is also labor intensive. For the initial stages of your online brand awareness campaign you should consider aligning with YouTube content creators that already have a substantial number of YouTube subscribers instead of trying to buy YouTube views.
Using YouTube to Maximize Your Online Brand Awareness
Whenever a person sees an advertisement they know it is an advertisement so they may ignore the message. With YouTube marketing the content creator can embed your advertisement inside the video content so you are more likely to have a receptive audience. One way of realizing this goal is by having the presenter talk about your organization, while they will need to mention your company is “sponsoring” the content the fact that the presenter is someone the viewer trusts will increase the chances the viewer will remember the name of your company.
It takes time for a brand to establish itself in the minds of consumers and you are never done branding. There are well-established companies that spend billions every year on advertising and branding because they know without it their market share would diminish.
You should not “put all of your eggs in one basket” but instead look for multiple YouTube content creators in niches that are related to your industry. By having multiple channels talk about your organization it will create the impression that your company is rapidly growing and becoming a household name.
Measuring the Results of Your Online Branding Campaign
When trying to measure the results of your online branding campaign the results may not always be immediate in dollars and cents. It takes time to establish yourself as a dominant player in your niche but you have to be in the top 3 if you want to achieve long-term success.
The reason you need to be in the top 3 is consumers do not keep track of who the top ten companies are in any particular industry or niche. They can usually come up with 2-3 brands right off the top of their head and those 2-3 companies are the ones they will usually do business with when they do decide to make a buying decision. What you have to do is conduct a marketing campaign that is consistent so consumers will see you are “here to stay”. As your brand becomes more prominent you will begin to generate more sales and revenue but it takes patience which is something most people do not have in this modern age.
