You invest a lot in your video content.
Is it getting viewed and delivering results for your brand?
Most brands can make their video investment work harder for them by developing a video SEO strategy from the onset – helping them appear more effectively in both Google and YouTube.
Our Brand + Audience Focused Approach:
We recommend the first step toward increasing your video discovery, views, and engagement is to understand what types of content, channel engagement, and optimization you would need to grow and maintain your YouTube and Google video viewing audience.
We also help you find what space you can “own” as a brand.
We would do this via a discovery session with your team, evaluate your current YouTube channel, video production process, video publishing, and promotion, and review your existing brand and audience research (and potentially suggest additional research). These insights would inform our go-forward strategy.
To implement the strategy, we often recommend YouTube training for your team and a set of suggested monthly software subscriptions to help you evaluate your video efforts. Training and software will allow your team to establish a regular testing plan to evaluate the effectiveness of your videos, which is essential to find the perfect set of topics and formats that work for YOUR audience.
We realize that appearing in the YouTube algorithm requires a different approach from traditional SEO – you need to have a clear brand value proposition and communicate that to your audience to stand out, engage and keep your audience returning. Like SEO it needs to be strategic from the beginning and labeling alone won’t get you there if you want to grow engagement and a presence.
What we Deliver
Here’s a sampling of the types of deliverables we have provided to our clients:
- The brand’s YouTube strategy recommendation – Address the potential ownable space/“sweet spot” opportunity for the brand and a potentially tighter set of audience personas.
- Conduct YouTube competitor audit (if needed)
Depending on what currently exists, this could include: Collecting and analyzing critical current competitor data to assess across the voice space: competitors’ target audience, brand positioning, messaging, unique value proposition, brand personality, voice, engagement levels, topics focused on, YouTube approach, and other differentiators.
- Conduct additional research (if needed, though see YouTube focus group approach below).
YouTube content/management roadmap + training – We then work with the internal team to put recommendations into place, including ramping up internal and external resources, content planning, putting software in place, and community management practices.
