Let A 5-Year Old Tell You About Successful Marketing

Things I know about marketing have come from the most bizarre places. Turns out my 5 year old knows some awesome inside tips about marketing. Plus, she has agreed to let me share them with you.

Say It Out Loud!

Do you ever notice how young kids share everything with just about everyone? Are you telling enough people about your business? Tell lots of people about your business. Not how they can purchase your new book! Tell them WHY you created what you did and why you LOVE it so much. If you are at a networking event it is best to promote your social media sites, whichever one you are the most active on, because the purpose is to make a friend - not be the annoying cheese-ball of the networking group.

Wear a look like no one else.

5 years olds dress for themselves. Period. How are you dressing your image? Are you hoping to look like everyone else with a basic third person text website, no updates on your LinkedIn page since day one of setup, bi-monthly newsletters longer than your long john underwear?

These are not you! I promise whatever the little voice inside is whispering about your business give it a chance to come out. There is no right way to be yourself.

Be Picky And Proud Of It.

Picky eaters can be such a pain in the butt, however once you know “the food list” then it is a breeze. My guess is you are not being picky enough about who you market your business to and so it is a struggle.

You must stop saying “anyone, really can purchase my coaching (or your product)”. But if you are marketing to Mr. & Mrs. Anyone they aren’t buying…ever…so stop it!

Do it Just Because You Love it.

A 5 year old spends 80% of their day doing what they love to do and look how happy they are! Decide what you LOVE to do. Not what you think will make you money. First get clear on what thrills you and fuels your soul.

Now, who out of anyone in the world would LOVE to have what you are offering? I promise there is an image of a specific character that will come to your mind. Take an hour to develop this character with pen and paper.  Be as detailed as possible, does she like coffee or tea, organic cotton or blended cloth, scary movies or comedies, etc.

Once this character has developed hire her to join your marketing team (figuratively)! Every time you have a new product or event or copy to write on your website consult your newly hired team mate. Ask her "What would you get from this?" and "Do you like what I have here for you?"

Put yourself in her shoes. What excites her? What pains and struggles does your service or product serve? How will working with you improve her quality of life? Why is your product the best choice for her problem?

"Should" is Not a Business Model.

Somewhere after 5 or 6 years old it seems people stop being as they desire and more as they "should" in the world.  Yuck (and boring too)!  Being an entrepreneur can be stressful especially if you are trying to fit into a "I should" business model. There is room for joy, excitement and silliness in your business.

Does this resonate with you? In the comments below tell me how you will be more like a 5 year old in your marketing!

How and Why You Should Market Your YouTube Videos


Do you enjoy uploading videos that you made to the YouTube website?  If so, you may be pleased with all of the traffic that you get.  YouTube is known to get thousands of visitors a day.  For you, this means that your YouTube videos may be watched by thousands of people or more!  As much traffic as YouTube brings you and your videos, you may be looking for more.  If you are, you will want to examine other ways to market your YouTube videos.  Just a few of the many marketing approaches that you can take are outlined below.

Perhaps, the easiest way to market your YouTube videos is to let friends, family members, or coworkers know that you have videos available for viewing on YouTube.  For the best chance of success, you are advised to email the direct links for your YouTube videos to those that you know.  If you just happen to mention having your videos on YouTube to a friend in passing, let them know what your videos are about or what your YouTube screen name is.  YouTube allows site visitors to browse through all of their videos or search for something in particular, like one of your videos.

Another one of the many ways that you can market your YouTube video is by having any of your videos appear on any websites or blogs that you have.  What is nice about YouTube is that you can easily get a few HTML codes.  Those codes will enable you or any other internet users to post a YouTube video online.  It is not uncommon for bloggers to insert a YouTube video in their blog, by using generated HTML codes.  It is advised that you post your own YouTube videos on your own websites, but if you know of anyone else who has a blog, you may want to think about giving them the needed HTML codes to have your YouTube video appear on their blog.  In most cases, you will find that even strangers are willing to do so, as long as your YouTube video is connected, in one way or another, to their blog or website.

You can also market your YouTube videos on online message boards.  Online message board marketing can be done two different ways.  For instance, there are a large number of online message boards that let you discuss of share anything, in general, with other board members. You may want to think about posting links to some of your YouTube videos, especially if you think the other members would enjoy watching them.  If you belong to an online message board or forum that allows you to have a signature, you will want to look into doing so.  Your signature will always appear at the end of each of your messages; therefore, the more active you are online, the more exposure your YouTube videos are likely to get.

Now that you know a few ways that you can go about marketing your YouTube videos to other internet users, you may be wondering exactly why you should.  As it was mentioned above, YouTube, alone, is likely to generate thousands of viewers for your videos.  If you are looking for more views, whether just to increase your online popularity or to help you get new clients, if you connect your YouTube videos to your business somehow, you will want to take the time to market your YouTube videos.  What is nice is that you have a number of different methods available, including the three mentioned above, and most are free.  In fact, marketing your YouTube videos to other internet users isn’t only free, but it is easy to.  Many marketing tactics will only take up a few minutes of your time, if even that.

The decision as to whether or not you want further market your YouTube videos is yours to make. If you find yourself unsatisfied or unhappy with your current YouTube viewer ship, you may want to think about doing a little bit of your own marketing.

How to Rank High on Youtube


How to Rank High ON YOUTUBE THE EASY WAY!

YouTube Traffic Made Easy

Did you know that youtube.com is ranked number 3 on the entire internet as one of the most popular sites in the world according to Alexa.com.

I’m sure you knew that. Check out these statistics:

Total number of YouTube videos = over 120,000,000

  • Number of videos uploaded per day = about 200,000
  • Time required to see all the videos = over 600 years
  • Number of videos watched daily = over 100,000,000
  • Amount of content uploaded every minute = 13 hours
  • Number of accounts on YouTube = over 300,000,000

Obviously this is the best place to drive traffic to your website or become popular online but competition is tough and get your videos to be seen by people becomes more difficult by the minute.

So, today you I will share some of my tricks that I personally use to get more views, ratings and subscribers into your YouTube account.

Page 1 of YouTube Traffic Made Easy

YouTube is kind of like Google, people search for something and expect to get results (in this case videos) related to the keywords they used.

Well lets say you wanted to post a video about "How to make a blog" if you go on YouTube now and type that exact same thing about 85,000 results will show but of course most people only look at the first page, your goal is to be on that first page and this is how to do it.

SECRET TIP #1: Every time you’re going to upload a new video search for keywords related to the content of the video you’re going to upload, the video with most views will pop up on the first page so before you upload your video, click on the first video of the first page and see their video info. You must copy their tags only not their description. The purpose of this is to get your video to be in their related videos even though yours is new giving you a bigger chance of exposure.

NOTE: If your video has a lot of views it will instantly dominate the keyword your aiming making you number 1 on the first page, and even if it doesn’t have a lot of views it is still possible to be on the first page just by copying the tags of the most popular video.

Increase Your YouTube Views

Some people try to cheat YouTube to try to get more exposure for their videos using Auto-refreshers and software’s like Tubeincreaser to give fake views to their videos. I believe this is unnecessary because the whole point of uploading videos is for people to see them.

But, if you still feel the need to do it, you can do it with YouTube simple.

SECRET TIP #2: After you have uploaded your video go to My Videos> AudioSwap and click on "I'm feeling lucky" as many times as you feel like it, this action will reload your video again, and again with different songs in seconds, giving you instant views every time you reload, once you get the views you want simply exit and don’t save your changes, since your doing it within YouTube, your views will not be frozen once they hit a certain amount, but if you use software like tubeincreaser there is a chance your views will get frozen.

AUDIOSWAP: allows you to replace the background sound of your music with music provided by YouTube.

Getting Subscriptions, Comments & Ratings on YOUTUBE

Subscriptions in YouTube are the main topic, people like having subscribers which is the equivalent to followers on Twitter. Now I will share some tips that will help you gain subscribers in YouTube.

Offer something free to share with viewers, or give something free to viewers for example an e-book or share something someone might enjoy usually giving freebies can help you gain subscribers

  • Upload videos every month constant activity and videos in your channel will gain you subscribers, there is more chances of getting subscribers if you have five videos than someone that has 1
  • Subscribe to other people's channels sometimes they will sub back
  • Comment, rate and complement videos as well as channels that you like some users will appreciate it and subscribe in return
  • Also add as many friends as you can, not only will make you popular but your videos will get viewed more.

YouTube & Google

Since YouTube is owned by Google, your videos can sometime show as results in Google, the more views you have the more traffic your going to get and the more popular your channel will be.

One more tip when uploading a video, make sure your video title always is clear and related to the content of the video, when a user makes a search on YouTube or Google they look for titles related to the keywords.

If your title is "How to make a blog" and a user types that same keywords then most likely your video will show as first result, numbers and symbols might not be helpful to better rankings in YouTube or Google.
