The YouTube app template has been a firm favourite for many years now, and I am please to announced that the template has now been updated, giving it a more modern vibe. It allows you to adds as many videos are you wish from your channel.
What is YouTube?
YouTube is a video sharing website that was created to allow users to upload, view and share their personal videos. It is possible for anyone to view this site without having to be registered to YouTube. Creating an account with YouTube is very simple if you want to load your own videos there. You can create an account here.
Why should you use YouTube for your business?
Videos are an easy way to visually connect with your current and potential audience. People all learn using different senses, some can read and take in facts, others need to see something in action in order to grasp the message being conveyed
Three goals of web video content:
In order to get the most of your video content, you need to ensure that you do the following:
- Inform your audience. Your YouTube video should inform the viewer about your company or the industry that you are working within industry
- Educate your audience. Make sure that there is some purpose to your video, your audience needs to come away from the video with having learnt something about you or your industry and feel satisfied
- Entertain your audience. No one wants to watch a 20 minute lecture of pure boredom. Make sure the video is entertaining. It always helps to include some form of humor.
Why would I want to create an app using the YouTube app template?
Web video is a massive attraction. Web videos are easy to embed into your website, they encourage brand awareness and they build trust in your brand. By using a link to YouTube, you are not using your own server and therefore the size of the video does not slow down the server. If you have a DIY business, you can create mini videos of various project showing the process, or if you have a hairdressing salon, you can create videos of various hair styles being create. The options are endless.
How can I create a YouTube app?
You have two different ways to make a YouTube app. You can create a feed from your own You Tube channel URL or your favourite You Tube URL account such as; http://www.youtube.com/user/KidsTV123, (my son’s favourite You Tube channel). The other option available is to use keywords. When creating a YouTube link using keywords you need to ensure you use + ,– and quote signs to make the search more specific. Keyword example for Children’s songs: If you want to gather nursery rhymes for your toddler you should write your keywords like this: “Nursery rhymes” and not Nursery rhymes.
Adding another keyword – You can add another aspect to your search by adding another keyword using the + sign; “Nursery Rhymes + English”.
Focusing your search: It is possible to reduce the size of your search to a more specific area, for example you may want a group of Nursery Rhymes but you know your child hates Baa Baa Black Sheep, then you can use the – sign; “Nursery Rhymes – Baa Baa Black Sheep”. This search will exclude Baa Baa Black Sheep.
