However, unfortunately, YouTube videos will not help you achieve that. That’s because people that go on YouTube do NOT have a clear commercial demand. This is unlike ranking for commercial keywords in your industry or niche with SEO keywords.

Focus on One Marketing Channel and a Singular Goal
I told my friend, you should be focused on search engine optimization for Google, or one singular marketing channel before moving on to the next one.
It’s hard to focus on a single marketing channel, or even a single keyword. This was my huge problem when I started out as a Singapore SEO consultant. I wanted to rank for multiple keywords at a go.

YouTube can be a huge catalyst when it comes to driving traffic and engagement to your site, down the line. Combined with a powerful email marketing strategy, you’ll be able to build your email list effectively with traffic from Youtube.
Nicely curated videos are always great for ‘branding’ purposes.

How can you cut out the noise and focus on a singular marketing goal?
