If you are not using YouTube advertising for your business you are missing a great opportunity.
It is incredibly cost effective and I am getting video views for all my campaigns at 1 cent per view and, for some, much less than that.
For example my “Residential Property” campaign has delivered 1,491 views over the last 7 days at a cost of Euros 7.38.
This is stunning because the cost per video view is 0.00494969818; yes, less than .5 of a cent.
And a video view on YouTube is only counted when a viewer has watched in excess of 30 seconds of your video. If someone watches for 25, 28, 29 seconds and clicks away I am not charged a cent.
Not one cent.
Imagine being able to communicate by word, voice, body language, gesture, facial expression with 1,491 people-how much is that worth?
Imagine getting 1,491 people into a hotel in Dublin or Cork or Galway or Limerick or a provincial town and giving them useful information which would position you as an expert in your area of business. Would that be worth less than 10 euros?
Currently YouTube is wide open for any Irish business to exploit and put to stunningly effective use for the benefit of the business. From what I see there are very few Irish businesses wading in, though, and picking the low hanging fruit.
Even less are availing of the advertising opportunity on YouTube.
This is a huge mistake, one that I find puzzling and inexplicable.
Meanwhile, though, I am delighted to ‘fill my boots’ and grow my subscriber base, leads, clients, and solicitor’s practice on YouTube.
