How to Share YouTube Videos

Creating video content is a great addition for any small businesses marketing strategy. Video can make complex thoughts, ideas or areas of your business easier to understand. In fact 95% of viewers are more likely to remember your call to action after watching a video, compared to 10% reading it in text*.

Video content and marketing is on the rise from 2018. YouTube plays over 1 billion hours of video each day*, is the second largest search engine — behind it’s owner Google — however relying on YouTube only is not an ideal strategy. Once you create your video and upload it to YouTube you should promote it across multiple social media accounts and your website. The following shows how we can share YouTube videos on social media accounts.
