YouTube – The Most Powerful Advertising Tool on the Internet [Infographic]
The days of door to door sales are long gone, and businesses that want to remain competitive on the market today must utilize all means available to reach as many potential customers as they possibly can. Dazzlingly rapid development of the Internet and digital image-making technologies has enabled companies to advertise their products on a worldwide market. YouTube is mostly known as a video sharing platform that provides a large selection of music videos of all genres, but what most people don’t know is that YouTube is also one of the best online platforms for social media marketing.
In 2017 a little over a decade since the first video clip was uploaded to YouTube, the second largest search engine on the Internet today has more than 1.5 billion active monthly users. For this reason, YouTube can offer a large audience to all entrepreneurs who are looking for a way to increase sales of their products. With the availability in nearly 90 countries around the world, posting the social media marketing videos to YouTube is one of the fastest and easiest ways to reach new markets.
26% of all videos uploaded to YouTube are monitored or monetized within the first 24 hours, but 9% of all videos are taken down within the first 24 hours by copyright holders. These numbers clearly demonstrate the importance of inventiveness, creativity, and freshness when approaching social media marketing, because unoriginal and illegally used content can only harm the public image of a company and their products.
