How to Use YouTube to Grow Traffic

Crystal ( and I had another super productive G+ Hangout yesterday!  This time we had a guest – Andrea Green of is a YouTube Guru and talked to us about ways to use YouTube to enhance our content and draw in more readers.

Watch the video below of our live hangout!  Be sure to ask any questions you may have!

As usual, we gave some tasks for you to complete!

In this video Andrea teaches you:

  • where to start- how to determine the topics you want to make videos about
  • why videos are important for your blog
  • video basics- how to get started and how long your videos should be
  • video elements-  what focus on in your videos, keyword specifics, etc
  • editing- free tools for both Mac and PC users
  • and more

I learn so much from your Google + hangouts. I really need to get comfortable with videos. That's the only reason I didn't start any of the tasks.
