Videos, videos, and more videos. That’s probably what comes to mind when most people think about YouTube. The reality is much different. YouTube is a community just like any other social media platform. The more subscribers and friends that you have on YouTube, the more views, likes, and comments (all are great for YouTube ranking) your videos will get. That means communication is key!
One of the best ways to reach out to your followers is a YouTube bulletin…
A YouTube bulletin is an update you send from your channel to your subscribers. You can tell your subscribers about a video you’re working on, or maybe include a link to a video with a comment about it. When you post a YouTube bulletin, it appears in the recent activity module on your subscribers’ channel (that means their subscribers and friends can see it as well) and on your own channel.
Sending a YouTube bulletin is quick and easy. All you have to do is follow these simple steps:
1) Sign into your YouTube account
2) Go to your channel
3) At the top of the channel (below the Search bar), you’ll see an edit channel section with various grey tabs (Post Bulletin, Settings, Themes and Colors, Modules, and Videos and Playlists). Click Post Bulletin.
4) The section will expand and show you bulletin options. This is where you’ll enter the message you’d like to include in your YouTube bulletin.
NOTE: You can include a personal note and a video link. As you fill in the text for the personal note, you’ll see a preview of the bulletin appear in the preview field to the right of the text field.
5) Once you’re satisfied with your bulletin, click the Post Bulletin button. Your YouTube bulletin will then be sent to your subscribers.
There’s a very good chance your subscribers aren’t checking into your channel every day, so this is a good way to call attention to your videos (or anything else you might be up to). If you have a solid foundation of community members and real estate professionals subscribed to you on YouTube, this is another killer way capture views (and potential clients, partners, etc.) on your video listings and much more.
