Stuck at 500 video views?
Many video marketers experience the frustration of watching their videos hit a ceiling at 500 views or less. It turns out fewer than 20% of videos get more than 500 views in the first month. But unlike Tweets and Facebook postings, video is persistent, meaning people continue to watch them for weeks, months and years. A recent article in All Things D cites that more than half the lifetime views for a video come after the first three weeks. Plus, viewers are spending a lot more time with your video than they do on a Tweet, a Facebook post or an Instagram photo. Use Twitter, Facebook and your email list to keep plugging your videos long after that first big push, and make sure your videos are optimized for search.
