In this week’s episode of Online Marketing Basics for Busy Website Owners, I make myself accountable for getting my YouTube channel properly started after a few false starts over the past few months.
While I’m talking YouTube (and my obsession with it), I also share some useful tips that you can apply to your own YouTube channel to get it seen by more of your ideal customers.
If you don’t have a YouTube channel, then hopefully by the end of this episode you would have been so swayed by my enthusiasm with the platform that you’ll set up a channel for yourself as a way to drive more traffic to your website and get seen online that little bit more by your ideal customers.
