YouTube is Built for Cat Videos, Not Conversions

It is easy to think YouTube is the best value when it comes to hosting their videos, because it is free.

But nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, YouTube is the most expensive place to host your videos because it hurts your conversions.

YouTube.com can drive some traffic to your website, but having YouTube embedded videos on your site screams “amateur.”

Plus, YouTube always links back to their site. Which is an ADHD playground with videos of your competitors just a click away.

You would never let your competitor put videos on your website for free, but this is exactly what is happening with these links back to YouTube.com and the “related videos” after yours.

These are like “holes” in your funnel where sales are bleeding out.

Plus, YouTube is notorious for banning business related videos without a moment’s notice, which isn’t fun when you’re paying for traffic.

But the biggest problem with YouTube is that it was built for social video content, things like viral cat videos, NOT marketing.

This means YouTube delivers exactly Zero of the Video Conversion Technology that Vidalytics does. These are the tools that have been tested and proven to convert better than practically anything out there. And they are required to keep your video marketing competitive today.
