How to Rank YouTube Videos in Google

DropMock : Rank YouTube Videos in Google

We’re sure that you’re well aware of the impact that YouTube can have on your business. However, it’s also highly likely that, despite having uploaded several videos, you’re still struggling to get views. The key to successful YouTube marketing is to get your videos to rank in Google searches. Once ranked, you’re more likely to receive the views you’d hoped for. However, while the solution is easy, implementing it can be more difficult – so here’s our top tips for how to rank YouTube videos in Google.

  1. Create great content

If you’re under the impression that YouTube is a shopping site, unfortunately you’re mistaken. People use YouTube to find answers to problems, learn new skills, watch funny videos and generally just waste a bit of time. This means that you need to think about the kind of content you’re uploading, and what will attract the most views. Great content includes:

  • Tutorial videos – show your viewers how to use your product, or how your product or service can be of benefit to them
  • How-to videos – think about questions people may have about your service or product and then answer them in how-to videos
  • Review videos – get someone to review your product or create useful reviews of your own

Whenever someone types a question into Google – it always throws up a couple of YouTube videos as an answer – check it out for yourself.

  1. Think about the length of your video

Have you ever clicked on a YouTube video, discovered that it lasts 45 minutes or more, and so clicked off looking for something shorter? While you do want to create better and more engaging content, don’t make it too long. However to rise through the Google rankings, the longer you can keep a user watching your video, the better your videos will rank. To improve your YouTube ranking make sure that your video is at least two minutes long and make it something people would want to share.

  1. Optimise your video file

While YouTube is smart, it can’t see the content of your videos; it simply looks at the name of your raw video file. Therefore, before you upload it to YouTube, you need to optimise your video file.

  • Name the file after your Number 1 and Number 2 keywords
  • Use tags that are related to the content
  • Add a brief description of your video into the comments field

  1. Link it to your website

If you’re using YouTube to market your business, every video you upload should be linked to your website. You don’t want to waste this opportunity to drive your viewers to your website where they can see what you have on offer. The whole point of YouTube marketing is to direct your viewers to the platform where you can make a sale – so don’t miss your chance to do it.

Once you’ve added the link to your website, optimise the rest of your video description.

  • Make your content at least 200 words long
  • Don’t use duplicate content from your other videos – make it unique
  • Use synonym and one off keywords, but don’t overuse them

  1. Make sure your channel page showcases your brand

One of the key ways to rank YouTube videos is to create an interesting channel page. Don’t forget to include a profile picture and a header in line with your brand, and always fill in the description. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to make a header or images for your channel, you’ll find that DropMock can help you to create professional looking images without the need for a graphic designer.

A complete YouTube channel page will get you noticed more easily by Google, so make sure you add the following:

  • Links to all your social media pages and your website
  • Add in channel images to help users identify your content, and don’t forget to optimise your images.
  • Subscribe to similar channels. YouTube likes to see what you’re looking at
  • Complete the description making sure you add in lots of relevant synonym keywords

All these are just simple tweaks that will go a long way to help you to rank YouTube videos, and ensure that you get the most out of your YouTube marketing strategy.

 

5 Mistakes To Avoid On Your Business Facebook

DropMock : Mistakes To Avoid On Facebook

If you’re finding it a challenge to build a Facebook fan base and engage your followers, rest assured that you’re not the only one. No matter what kind of business you run, it takes time to build an active Facebook community, and encourage them to spread the word to their colleagues, family and friends. Therefore it makes sense to learn as much as you can about using Facebook as a marketing medium, including learning about the mistakes made by other users. So without further ado, here’s 5 mistakes to avoid on your business Facebook page.

1. Forgetting to focus on your audience

Facebook is not a place to focus on promoting your products and services, but a place to focus on your followers and building a community. It’s a place to be genuine and authentic. If your followers get the feeling that your main focus is your business and not them, pretty soon they’ll abandon you. Look for ways to nurture your hard-built community, rather than simply bombard them with what you have to sell. One of the easiest ways to do this is to make your Facebook content relevant to your customers’ lives.

Tips: Start a thread where followers post photos with your products. Always answer any customer questions promptly, and ask followers to give their thoughts on an aspect of your business.

2. Not reflecting your corporate identity

Ensure that your Facebook page reflects the visions, goals and ethos of your business. Don’t forget your page is part of your company, and needs to be kept in line with your brand. While it’s perfectly acceptable for your page to be casual and fun, it should always remain professional too. Your customers want to know that YOU take your business seriously.

Tip: Use a header and logo that clearly identifies your brand.

3. Not being creative enough

Facebook users like to be entertained and engaged so you’re missing an opportunity if you’re playing ‘too safe’ with your content. If you’re not experimenting with different kinds of posts you’ll find that it’s more difficult to capture the attention of your followers. They don’t want to see the same kind of content each time they visit, so try mixing it up a little with a combination of photos, videos, infographics and other visuals.

Tip: Don’t forget that DropMock makes it easy to create visually appealing content at the touch of a button.

4. Not investing in Facebook Ads

Many businesses shy away from paying to promote their business on Facebook. They rely solely on their business Facebook page to bring in the customers. To widen your reach, it’s worth investing in Facebook Ads, as Facebook offers a powerful platform which can be used to both extend your customer base, and to target potential customers.

Tip: Ads can also be targeted to predefined demographics in order to bring in the type of customer you want.

5. Not using Facebook tools

If you’re relying on whatever Facebook offers for free, you’re severely limiting your reach; especially as there are many third-party tools available which integrate perfectly with Facebook. Using Facebook tools can help you to attract more customers with features such as customisable quizzes and voting contests. Other tools give you the ability to schedule your posts so that you’re not constantly tied to updating your page.

Tip: Try Facebook tools such as HootSuite, which enables you to manage more than one page and schedule your posts. If you want to add quizzes and contests, AgoraPulse is easy to use.

And finally, to make your business Facebook successful you need to learn all you can about building communities, engaging with your followers and keeping them in the fold. Only then will you be able to reap the benefits of having a business Facebook page.

5 Top Tips for Using LinkedIn

DropMock : Tips for Using LinkedIn

You’ve hundreds of friends on Facebook. You’re constantly posting on Pinterest. You’ve mastered the art of creating scintillating 140-character tweets. And yet, you’ve not yet delved into the world of LinkedIn.

For many people, LinkedIn is a bit of a mystery. You’ve heard about it. You may even have set up a profile, and yet you still don’t really know the benefits of using it. However, did you know that there’s over 19 million LinkedIn users in the UK, an increase of 9 million in two years, and over 300 registered users worldwide? Quite a staggering statistic isn’t it? The truth is, if you can create a good LinkedIn profile, you open yourself up to all kinds of career and business opportunities.

While there’s no doubt that LinkedIn is an excellent medium for networking and keeping in touch with current and former business colleagues, it’s also a great way to engage with the business community as whole, and to promote your business. With that in mind, here’s our top 5 tips for using LinkedIn.

1. Create a findable and visually appealing LinkedIn profile

The first thing others see will be your profile, so it makes sense to make it as interesting and as visually appealing as possible. You’ll need a professional-looking headshot, plus a succinct and compelling headline. Your headline should include keywords for your industry and should be as creative and readable as you can make it.

2. Showcase the things that don’t fit naturally into your CV or resume

Rather than just add job titles, take the time to complete all the description areas. Here you’ll have the opportunity to list any contract work, upload examples of your work, and list any other skills that you feel would be relevant. Consider adding clips from YouTube videos you may have made, Wikipedia pages you’ve created, or images and graphics to show your skills. Using DropMock can help you to create exciting visuals which can tell your story at a glance.

3. Profile complete? It’s time to connect with others

Connecting with your existing professional and personal contacts should be your first priority. Once you’ve established your basic network, it’s time to start connecting with others. Whenever you meet a new person, and you’d like to stay in touch, send them a LinkedIn request.

You’ll also find that you’ll receive invitations from people you don’t know, so check out their profile to see if a connection with them would be beneficial. Try to avoid connecting with anyone and everyone, and put some thought into your LinkedIn requests, rather than just sending generic messages. And don’t forget, that others have their own ways of using the site. Generally speaking, the more connections a person has, the more open they’re likely to be to LinkedIn requests.

4. Do a bit of detective work

Once you’ve built up a network it’s time to do a little detective work. However, this only usually works once you’ve got an established set of good connections. ‘Snooping’ gives you the opportunity to find out more about other companies or people by approaching members of your network for their opinions, insights into company culture and vacant positions. You can even ask them to make introductions to other LinkedIn members on your behalf.

LinkedIn is a great medium for letting others know that you’re hiring or looking for expertise in a particular area. What’s more, if you’re looking to hire an applicant and someone in your network already knows them, you can do a bit of investigation to find out more about them.

Just remember that, unlike Facebook or Twitter, LinkedIn users tend not to check their account on a daily basis, so if you have another way to contact them, it will help you to speed up your request.

5. Keep active

To get the most out of LinkedIn, don’t just log in when you want something specific. It’s far better to remain active on a regular basis. Keep your profile up-to-date, share links and always let people know when you’ve achieved something in the business world or have something new to offer.

Are You Using Twitter To Market Your Brand?

DropMock: Using Twitter to market your brand

Are you using Twitter to market your brand? Read on to discover how using DropMock can improve your brand awareness in a more professional and memorable way.

While you may think that Twitter’s been set up for celebrities to bombard us with inane chatter about their personal lives, this social network offers far more, particularly as a means to promote your business. Set up by US bloggers 10 years ago, the popularity of Twitter can’t be denied. It’s a way to get your message across in a sharp and succinct way plus, despite the fact that the text is limited to 140 characters, you can include links to a whole host of extra information. Put simply, Twitter gives you a whole new way to communicate with your customers and market your brand.

What is Twitter?
For those of you who’ve heard of Twitter but don’t really have a clue what it’s all about; Twitter is a communication tool that enables you to send short messages, known as Tweets, to people who subscribe to you, i.e. your followers. As Twitter is a community, to become part of that community, you’ll need to find people to follow and become a follower yourself. Being a follower allows you to read, respond to and easily share things that others tweet, with your followers. This act of sharing is known as retweeting, and is one of the ways to build your own followers and your online community.

Although the text itself is limited to 140 characters, you can include links to all kinds of other web content, including blog posts, website pages, documents and, of course, you can attach pictures or videos.

Using Twitter to present your brand

Your Twitter presence needs to have the same look and feel as your other online tools to that people can easily identify your business and your brand. Therefore, always choose an account name and images that are consistent. Don’t forget that your Twitter name will appear next to all your tweets, so make it something memorable and easy to type on mobile devices.

1

Make your profile and header images really count

As you’re given the opportunity to upload two different images to represent your account, you’ll want to ensure that these are the best quality possible, and that they really say something about your company and its ethos. Your profile photo is square in shape and appears next to every tweet you send. Whether you want to use your company logo or something completely different is your choice, but make it something that links in with your brand and is easily recognisable. If you’re a small business, you may want to consider using a personal photo.

Once you’ve chosen your profile photo, it’s time to add your header. This is where you can really tell the story of your business. Just like Facebook, your header photo covers the top of your profile page, and is the perfect opportunity to get the message out about your business. Creating an eye-catching header photo is easy using an online mockup tool such as DropMock. Plus it makes it possible to easily and quickly create new header photos if you want to promote a particular aspect of your business, such as a sale or your latest product.

Adding images to your Tweets

We know it’s a bit of an over-used phrase, but a picture definitely is worth a thousand words. Therefore adding an image to a tweet means that you can expand your message way beyond the 140-character limit. And, of course, using DropMock means that you can create images that will get your message and brand across in a way that’s both professional and memorable.

How Twitter can add a unique element to your marketing

If you’ve always wanted to add a blog to your website, but you’re not sure that you’ll be able to find the time to keep it regularly updated, or you’re worrying that it will be difficult to think of fresh content all the time, Twitter could be your answer. In the world of social media, Twitter is categorised as a microblogging tool. This means that you can send short posts to get across a particular aspect of your business, without having to write a full blog post.
Of course, if you already have a blog, you can use Twitter to promote your latest blog post to your followers; to give them a highlight of what the post is about, and to remind them to go and read it. What’s more, every tweet you send will go directly to all your followers!

Don’t forget to retweet

Twitter, like other Social Media, allows you to build and become part of an online community and, as such, the key to making the best use of Twitter for marketing purposes is to demonstrate that you’re an expert in your field. It’s not just about posting ‘clever’ tweets, but it’s about scanning tweets or using a Twitter search engine to find particular issues that you can help with. By offering snippets of advice for free, you’ll build trust and credibility and the people you help will be more likely to do business with you in the future.
