Getting more hits to your YouTube videos is something that can be daunting. If you’ve ever saw a video that had over 5,000 hits even in Atlanta to it while your video only has 4, you may be wondering why you aren’t getting the traffic that you had hoped for. Well to be truthful about you on this, there are a number of reasons for this, and there are many “loopholes” to get more traffic to your YouTube marketing videos.
The first thing that you need to know is that not all YouTube videos are created equally. Depending on the type of video that you upload, it will determine how many initial hits you would get to it. So if you uploaded a popular music video on YouTube, don’t be surprised the next day and you see that it already has 100,000 views to it. This is just the nature of the beast when it comes to YouTube marketing.
One reason you will want to get your views up is so that you can boost your search rankings on YouTube. People can sort their videos by a number of things, and if they’re looking for the most popular, and you have a lot of hits to your video, there’s a good chance your video will be on page 1 of the search results. So give it a try starting right away.
YouTube is the number 3 ranked website on the internet in terms of traffic and I think it’s something that is essential to your online business. There are few techniques that can rival YouTube marketing, but I think you can use this strategy to boost your traffic, and can help you to earn the sales and profits that you truly desire. So start using this technique today.
Good luck on using YouTube marketing to promote your business today.

Given these two facts alone, don't you think it might be something that you should be using?
The first objection that most business owners have with regard to using video marketing as part of their marketing strategy is that they think it is too expensive. There is still this common misconception that it is something that can only be afforded by, used by or only applies to the 'big boys' in business.
Well, this is now not the case and in this article I am going to explain to you just how easy it is to create and produce a quality video for your business, and at a fraction of the price that you may think it would cost.
Some Basics For Creating A Great Video
First of all, I do think that it is advisable to choose a location where the lighting is good. If you're planning on filming your video indoors then use a room that has either plenty of natural light coming in, or light coloured walls, or even better, both.
Why Video Marketing Works
I suppose the closest alternative to video marketing would have to be television advertising. The reality is however, that for the vast majority of small and medium sized business owners, the prospect of advertising on television is still pretty much financially out of reach.
Television advertising even today is still relatively expensive when compared to all other means of advertising, and there is no realistic way that many small business owners can possibly justify the cost of running a television advertisement.
Even a simple 30 second television advertisement could blow a company's entire years marketing budget in one fell swoop. This factor alone perhaps demonstrates the lack of feasibility in a small business using television advertising, which is why video marketing is something that can serve as a very effective alternative.
Video production and digital film is still very much in its infancy. However there are certain films coming through now which show how low budget film making doesn't have to be made to look low budget. Films like 'Finding Fatima,' which was made for less than £5k and look as though it was made for £500k are why digital video production is at such a pivotal stage.
The main problem is that there seems to be a trend that if you have a low budget, the film / production has to look low budget, and although these films often work extremely well, there is another side. By using post production grading, a cheap green screen with soft box lighting and a camera that you could pick up for a few grand you can actually create something which looks like a Hollywood production. You just have to be willing to spend some time learning about post production, camera angles and techniques that show a level of quality and technical ability. This isn't hard, its just more technical and maybe more boring for some than grabbing a camera and filming everything in a documentary style.
When looking at video production companies there are some which stand out, and exemplify this combination of high quality film standard productions at very low rates, and there are some which don't. But the important point to remember is by experimenting with post production software, researching techniques to get the most out of what lights you have or what camera you are using will only benefit when making the film. And if you do want it to have a documentary / realistic look to it, at least the shots will be purposeful and thought out and there will be a reason behind them.
