Here at IMPACT, after those questions we get the most we love to go. One of the major questions we have been getting asked recently is what video hosting platform should I use?
It’s a great question to ask and is quickly followed up by… and why?
So let’s go ahead and dive into this pool of movie hosting awesomeness.
YouTube Video Hosting
Jordan shares with us how YouTube is the elephant in the room. What does he mean by that?
Everybody understands what YouTube is.
Everybody thinks it first.
Everyone has watched a video on YouTube.
Everybody is comfortable with it.
Jordan also talks about how YouTube is the largest player in the space and how this means there’s always an integration between what platform you use and your YouTube videos.
Jordan shares how YouTube is the second largest search engine but that does not mean people are trying to find everything. YouTube is mostly none for entertainment style videos. The instructional videos that do well have some entertainment mix to them.
YouTube’s biggest pitfall is that the”YouTube vortex.” Attempting to pull viewers from YouTube onto your site is virtually impossible. SO, if you want them to be on YouTube and stay on YouTube, then it may be the right strategy for you.
Vimeo Video Hosting
Jordan educates us on Vimeo being the second largest platform in the movie hosting platform. He also shares how it is a”creative individual’s” video hosting platform alternative. They give users a way to make a paid view and a free opinion option.
The pitfall of Vimeo video is they look amazing. I know that doesn’t sound like a flaw but as Jordan shares with us, if you reside in the backwoods of Alaska, you may be unable to even watch a video on Vimeo.
We discuss how the video player is way cooler than YouTube’s video player.
Audioflow Video Hosting
Audioflow is more for men and women that are into video for company.
Jordan and I also talk about other Audioflow features like:
- Video Analytics
- Video as a lead generation alternative ( Turnstile )
- Call To Action
- Customizable player
Jordan and I rap about movie SEO sitemaps vs. simply relying on YouTube to your video search strategy.
Last but not least, we talk about whether it is a 1 platform does it all, a one, two punch, or do you will need to be on all three?
