Wondering what the 300 is about? No, it’s not the movie – there aren’t any spartans.
Just your friends, family and employees whom you need to convince to watch your video within the first 24 hours it’s posted. While they are watching it, they should like it and share it if it’s appropriate. #Google and #YouTube want to serve content up that people are interested in and they MAY start suggesting your video if there are a bunch of views, likes, shares and comments in a relatively quick time frame.
It’s all about engagement – so after you select our Blueforest Studios Video Team to make a great video for you, get the most out of it online. We can optimize it for you and even promote it through YouTube Video promotion…but those first few days have to be organic.
For instance, our team produced this video in the spring. When the client was ready to go on the road, they needed to get a little buzz and some views. We worked together to get those views quickly and YouTube rewarded us by pushing the video as well!

So the question always comes up about how to make videos go viral. But I like to ask: how do we make a video effective? In order to make your video effective (after you’ve hired Blueforest Studios to produce an awesome video), you need to do a little Video SEO. I know it sounds like voodoo to some but it’s really pretty straightforward and you can find out more in our previous posts.
Once you do all the Video SEO and the video is live, what’s the next step?
This is really the easiest part of all – one would think!!
LIKE your video!! And, how many people do you have in your family, organization, or small company? That’s how many likes you should have on Day 1! Now, I don’t suppose that your CEO who gets paid 7 figures is browsing YouTube and liking videos, but if she happens to watch it on YouTube she should like it too!
If you have decided that YouTube is the right platform for your video then use it for all it’s worth. Of course, you’re not going to get 1 million views and you don’t need that many views. What you do need is the right people in the right market watching your video. And taking action! (that’s another post coming soon).
In YouTube’s semi-secret algorithm they look at views, likes, and shares to determine which videos to recommend – in addition to all the Video SEO stuff. So if your video gets posted and instantly gets a bunch of views, likes, and shares, then YouTube will start recommending your video more than if you didn’t have those.
Your homework – right now - is to go to your channel or a friend’s channel and like a video or two. It’s a low investment in time and you’re not pushing or self-promoting…though you should do that too! But we’ll take baby steps.
If you want to see our most “Liked” video check it out below. There’s a few reasons why people like it more than the others. What do you think they are?
A source from Reel SEO recently reported on a blog from LinkedIn Marketing Solutions that stated the professional networking site would now accept video ads in order for their clients to market to other business professionals. All it requires is a YouTube URL to a video of maximum 30 seconds and some simple text to go with the video.
As we all know, the primary appeal for advertising on LinkedIn is its targeting power. Fortunately, video ads allow you to target by a wide variety of factors such as location, company, job title, school, skills, group, gender, and age.
According to the source at Reel SEO, LinkedIn’s establishment as a social network of professionals could ensure it’s suitability to reach the exact audience you want in the realms of company, job title, and skill set. Video ads could serve as the perfect targeting solution for products like business software and services, online video platforms, and video production services.
