Speaker:

Hello and welcome to the YouTube Success podcast.

Speaker:

This is me, Matt Hughes, King of Video.

Speaker:

I've still got a cough.

Speaker:

It may appear.

Speaker:

i'm still not very well, but It's the 3rd episode of this mini series

Speaker:

of content that I'm doing that talks about the signature video,

Speaker:

content repurposing framework and the content promotion framework.

Speaker:

This is all about the content promotion framework.

Speaker:

This is my little strategic view of how you will publish

Speaker:

and promote your own content and the content promotion framework.

Speaker:

I'm going to do something different in this episode.

Speaker:

You know, I've promoted the content, uh, the creator meetup, thecreatormeetup.com

Speaker:

is where you'll find it.

Speaker:

I've promoted that a little bit to try and get you to come over

Speaker:

there because I want more podcast listeners and YouTube viewers to come

Speaker:

over and join us in that community.

Speaker:

I'm going to put this framework in there as well.

Speaker:

So it's another bit of content that I'm saying that you're going to get

Speaker:

for coming over and joining us in that community, for those small amounts

Speaker:

of money that it is and you'll realise when we're making evergreen content,

Speaker:

we shouldn't say the values of stuff because the values often change.

Speaker:

So I hope that the cost of the community is the same whenever

Speaker:

you're listening to this.

Speaker:

But what I'm going to do on this episode it's going to be a very visual episode.

Speaker:

I'm going to try and describe it for you podcast listeners as well.

Speaker:

This is the one time i'm going to encourage you to head over to my YouTube

Speaker:

channel And watch this episode as a video because I'm going to share the

Speaker:

Excel spreadsheet that I've got in the video and you'll be able to see it more.

Speaker:

I will describe it as we're going through.

Speaker:

But you will be able to see it.

Speaker:

It's a little bit more visual.

Speaker:

So we're going to go and do that.

Speaker:

And so this being the 3rd part of the series of videos that we've

Speaker:

got about content repurposing and really maximising the use of your

Speaker:

video content, it's definitely worth listening to the other 2 episodes.

Speaker:

That's the previous two episodes as well.

Speaker:

So it's a mini series really.

Speaker:

Now, let's just share this.

Speaker:

As I'm sharing it, I will encourage you to head over to creatorday.co.uk

Speaker:

and join our virtual summit, which is happening in a couple of weeks.

Speaker:

And even if it's not happening then, there will be a waitlist for the next one.

Speaker:

We're going to be doing that twice a year.

Speaker:

So head over to creatorday.co.uk for that.

Speaker:

Alright, I think that's promo.

Speaker:

Look, we can do some promo, can't we?

Speaker:

You know, most people have adverts and sponsors and all that kind

Speaker:

of stuff before these episodes.

Speaker:

I'm just doing promo for my own stuff.

Speaker:

Why would I send other people to other places?

Speaker:

You know, let's promo our own stuff.

Speaker:

And we're talking about promo here for the content promotion framework.

Speaker:

If you see me looking to the left on my screen, it's because I'm

Speaker:

reading from the promotion framework.

Speaker:

Maybe I can make Ecamm a little bit bigger.

Speaker:

No, I can't.

Speaker:

So I'm going to have to look over there.

Speaker:

So apologies for that.

Speaker:

So we're talking about the framework.

Speaker:

If you think about the all the assets that we created from the previous

Speaker:

video, previous podcast episode, you should hopefully be able to look at

Speaker:

this and go, yeah, I know exactly where I've got to post all of this stuff.

Speaker:

This all makes perfect sense to me, but I'm going to run through it anyway.

Speaker:

I'll describe it for you on the podcast.

Speaker:

The way it's split out is platform is on the left, distribution is in

Speaker:

the middle, a concatenated version of that is there just in case you want to

Speaker:

see, one column to describe it all.

Speaker:

And then there's some notes on the right hand side as well.

Speaker:

The notes are really there.

Speaker:

Well, we create the notes section to help our social media manager understand

Speaker:

exactly what we wanted to do, so there's not much in there, but at least

Speaker:

the first three columns are filled in.

Speaker:

So on the left hand side, I've got platforms and if I run down that list

Speaker:

of platforms, we've got YouTube, email, blog, mediumโ€” Medium, the writing

Speaker:

platform, redditโ€”I'll explain why Reddit is important later onโ€” Facebook page,

Speaker:

profile, groups, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn, Stories, and

Speaker:

then there's some optionals there.

Speaker:

Facebook page, LinkedIn, and IGTV.

Speaker:

I mean, I've not even got TikTok.

Speaker:

This is how old this is.

Speaker:

Like, we've been using this for a while now because it has IGTV in it.

Speaker:

Does anyone remember that?

Speaker:

And there's no TikTok on here as well, but I definitely will update this to add in

Speaker:

some TikTok on there and some Reels and stuff in as well, because I can see now

Speaker:

that this is a little bit out of date.

Speaker:

But let's just start then.

Speaker:

So we've got some..

Speaker:

And that is, by the way, if you look at that, that is 55 different

Speaker:

places where we can take our one signature video and promote it.

Speaker:

So imagine what that would do for your YouTube video if you take this

Speaker:

strategy and use that content you've created and promote on these things.

Speaker:

So we start with YouTube, so signature video, of course that goes to YouTube.

Speaker:

So that's the first one, platform promotion, done.

Speaker:

You can put it on there.

Speaker:

You've got the second one, which is the YouTube thumbnail.

Speaker:

And the thumbnail, of course, is added to that piece of content.

Speaker:

And we already talked about how we use that thumbnail for the blog post, for

Speaker:

the featured image, that kind of thing.

Speaker:

So, although I don't mention that, later on when we talk about the

Speaker:

blog, actually know that that's a piece of content that we use there.

Speaker:

Then we've got the email.

Speaker:

So in the previous episode, I've talked about the thumbnail

Speaker:

being used for multiple things.

Speaker:

Actually, this is where we can use it in the email.

Speaker:

And I've got 2 emails listed in this promotion framework.

Speaker:

One is the initial promo, but you can also, in a lot of email systems,

Speaker:

send another email out to people that didn't read your email within 24 hours.

Speaker:

So you can have a little automation that says, right, this is to

Speaker:

promote my episode, my podcast episode, my YouTube video.

Speaker:

And then after 24 hours, if they've not read the email, because it tracks the

Speaker:

email's open rate, send them another email to say, "Hey, you may have missed it."

Speaker:

"Here's what you missed."

Speaker:

Or something like that.

Speaker:

In that way, you give yourself the best chance of somebody going to

Speaker:

watch or listen to your episode.

Speaker:

And then we've got the blog post, so we obviously post the blog post.

Speaker:

And I've got in the notes there, with the YouTube video embedded.

Speaker:

Look, the reason why it's amazing to me that people create blog posts

Speaker:

off the back of their content, but they don't embed their video.

Speaker:

The reason why we do that is because of the way people learn.

Speaker:

Some people like to learn by reading.

Speaker:

Some people like to learn by watching.

Speaker:

And that's the other reason why we create a blog post, because you

Speaker:

might think, well, if we've got a video, why do we need a blog post?

Speaker:

Imagine that I don't know where people are going to find me, whether they're

Speaker:

going to find me on YouTube, whether they're going to find me via a blog

Speaker:

post, by piece of social content, by clicking someone links in my profile.

Speaker:

I don't know where they're going to come from but what I want to do is wherever

Speaker:

they find me then and land, I want them to be able to see the other channels

Speaker:

and the socials and be able to see this like connected ecosystem that I've got.

Speaker:

So a blog post with a YouTube embedded video is a great way to do this.

Speaker:

In the notes there, I've got the, we captioned that with Descript.

Speaker:

We talked about Descript in the last episode.

Speaker:

Then we've got medium.

Speaker:

So I could take that blog post and I could put it on medium.

Speaker:

I might change the content slightly.

Speaker:

There's some great tools that you can use online that will...

Speaker:

it's like re-spinning your content.

Speaker:

So it changes like 20% of the content.

Speaker:

You have to read it as well and just proofread it make sure it still makes

Speaker:

sense, but then you could put it on medium rather than putting it a

Speaker:

straight copy onto medium because it might see it as a non original piece

Speaker:

of content, whereas if you spin the content, you could then put it on

Speaker:

medium again with the video in there.

Speaker:

And then I want to talk about this little hidden gem of a community called Reddit.

Speaker:

Now Reddit really scares me cause I'm 40 years old.

Speaker:

I feel like it's a platform that's not for people of my age.

Speaker:

And they never really say that because of, you know, people say

Speaker:

that about TikTok and I don't feel like that about TikTok at all, but I

Speaker:

just don't quite understand Reddit.

Speaker:

And I think when I was a teenager, we used to use forums

Speaker:

and bulletin boards and stuff.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

And I was very like on the money.

Speaker:

We, you know, when I speak to my kids, we were like, we created emojis.

Speaker:

We created like that way of talking, you know, OMG and all that kind of stuff.

Speaker:

We created that in forums.

Speaker:

When I get to Reddit, I'm like, oh my God, I feel like what older people must

Speaker:

have felt like when they hit those forums, because I just don't quite understand

Speaker:

it, so it scares me a little bit.

Speaker:

If you feel like that and you're watching this on YouTube, please

Speaker:

let me know in the comments.

Speaker:

But here's what I can do straight away that will add

Speaker:

some SEO juice to my content.

Speaker:

And that is, I post the video onto my Reddit profile.

Speaker:

So rather than going to put it in a Subreddit somewhere, I go

Speaker:

and post it just to my profile.

Speaker:

So nobody else really gets to see it necessarily, but

Speaker:

my profile is public, right?

Speaker:

And then what happens is, for some reason, Google is indexing Reddit,

Speaker:

like, by the minute it feels like.

Speaker:

So I post it there, and within a couple of hours, if I search for that

Speaker:

piece of content, one of the first places it appears is Reddit in Google.

Speaker:

So it's indexing that piece of content.

Speaker:

That's got to do something for the SEO ecosystem, right?

Speaker:

I really feel like it must do.

Speaker:

So Reddit's one of those little hidden gems that you can use to do that.

Speaker:

And if you if you're worried like me, you just post it to your own profile

Speaker:

Then there's the face of Facebook page.

Speaker:

So I've got 5 different ways and and I'm going to say this for all

Speaker:

of these now, so I'm going to talk about the 5 different ways in which

Speaker:

we post to each of these platforms.

Speaker:

Just so you know, so there's share of the YouTube video direct.

Speaker:

So whenever I'm talking about these platforms, how can we do it?

Speaker:

Let's do it this way.

Speaker:

So I'll say, this is the same for Facebook profile, Facebook groups, Twitter (X),

Speaker:

Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn and then on Stories on those platforms.

Speaker:

And we do the same 5 things on all of those.

Speaker:

For some reason, I've only got 4 of those things on Pinterest, but

Speaker:

I'll look at that in a second.

Speaker:

So we do the same 5 things.

Speaker:

So we share the YouTube video directly.

Speaker:

So this is just taking a video, posting it on the platform.

Speaker:

And letting it go.

Speaker:

A lot of people talk about the fact that we can't do, we shouldn't do that

Speaker:

on these platforms because they don't like sending traffic to other platforms.

Speaker:

I've not found that to be true.

Speaker:

If I post a YouTube video, I still get comments on it.

Speaker:

On Facebook for example, I still get comments on it.

Speaker:

People still click on it.

Speaker:

I still see the traffic coming from Facebook So whilst they might not

Speaker:

like it, they still do promote it.

Speaker:

It's still a piece of content, you could do on that.

Speaker:

I've never been shadow banned for doing that.

Speaker:

Doing it once a week is not going to be a big issue, I don't think.

Speaker:

You can share your teaser video.

Speaker:

So a teaser video is one of the snippets.

Speaker:

And when you think about podcast episodes, YouTube videos, a lot of

Speaker:

people now are doing these little teasers at the start of the videos.

Speaker:

You could create one of those snippets as a teaser, something that's

Speaker:

interesting, a bit of juicy content, something that creates curiosity.

Speaker:

You can post that onto your profile and then away you

Speaker:

go on all of those platforms.

Speaker:

Teaser video with a link back to the YouTube video and it could be a

Speaker:

link in the comments, you know.

Speaker:

It doesn't have to be a direct link, but it's a teaser video,

Speaker:

something that gets them a bit juicy.

Speaker:

Share a quote from the video.

Speaker:

So the next one is share a quote from the video.

Speaker:

So a teaser video could be multiple quotes, it could be a

Speaker:

bunch of those different ones.

Speaker:

A direct quote could be just one of those.

Speaker:

So I'm still thinking about the snippet videos in that same way.

Speaker:

Share the thumbnail from the video.

Speaker:

So if you want to change up the way in which you're sharing it,

Speaker:

and I said about the direct link to YouTube, just share the thumbnail.

Speaker:

This is again why this thumbnail becomes really really useful, because the

Speaker:

thumbnail in itself should be enough to gather some kind of curiosity, make

Speaker:

them think this is the kind of video that I want to watch, add in the caption

Speaker:

or the bit of content that you've got in aligned to that thumbnail and that

Speaker:

should be enough to then move them on and then again, link in the comments to

Speaker:

be able to send them to where they've got to go And you could share the

Speaker:

blog post with the video and this is a link directly to your website.

Speaker:

So again, you can take rather than a direct link to YouTube for the video.

Speaker:

You could share a link to the blog post, which then has the video embedded.

Speaker:

And then you're sending people to your website if I was going to do any of these

Speaker:

things, and it was just one of those things out of all of them, it's sharing

Speaker:

the blog posts, which is probably the most important, because you're moving people

Speaker:

to your own website, which means that you're gathering that traffic, you can

Speaker:

pixel them, Facebook pixel them, you can track them in Google Ads using Google

Speaker:

Analytics, and you're taking them to your website so you could have a pop up or

Speaker:

you could use something like ConvertBox.

Speaker:

I know a lot of this stuff I'm saying might not be, you might not be okay

Speaker:

with it, but they're just all these extra marketing things that you can do

Speaker:

in order to bring that traffic, to make use of that traffic more importantly.

Speaker:

So sharing the blog post is a really great way to move people over.

Speaker:

And then they will discover your YouTube channel, you know.

Speaker:

They'll discover your socials.

Speaker:

They'll go and follow you if you've got links to those things from your website.

Speaker:

But you're bringing that traffic to your website.

Speaker:

And again thinking about this as the series of videos that we talked about

Speaker:

in the signature video, I said you're being strategic with your content.

Speaker:

This is how we use strategic promotion of our content to bring

Speaker:

more people to our website, to get more sales, to get more leads.

Speaker:

And then I've got in there Facebook page secret source share link place

Speaker:

across multiple groups of interest.

Speaker:

So you could, just as another one for groups, is that you could share

Speaker:

the posting groups where people might find that thing interesting.

Speaker:

So if you're doing a video like I am about content repurposing, I might go

Speaker:

to some groups where there's business owners or people that would be interested

Speaker:

in content repurposing and say I've seen this new video and this is really good.

Speaker:

A lot of groups have kicked you out for that stuff, but I'm prepared to

Speaker:

just try it out and see what happens.

Speaker:

You've got to give these things a go.

Speaker:

There might be days where you can promote this stuff as well.

Speaker:

So you could just hook on those days of the week, where they

Speaker:

say "it's Sunday share day" or "Saturday share day", whatever.

Speaker:

So if you look down that list, we've got the same sort of thing for Twitter.

Speaker:

Pretty much all of those is repeated.

Speaker:

The same for Pinterest, Instagram.

Speaker:

Like Pinterest I've heard is a bit of a hidden gem as well,

Speaker:

because you can share videos.

Speaker:

And the last time I looked, when you shared a YouTube video into

Speaker:

Pinterest, they had a play button.

Speaker:

So anyone that was in Pinterest, they could just press play and start

Speaker:

watching the video straight away.

Speaker:

And then the other thing that I saw really really useful as well is to

Speaker:

share the blog post into Pinterest.

Speaker:

So it uses your featured image, your graphic, and then people get moved

Speaker:

over from Pinterest to your website.

Speaker:

You know, you don't have to do all of these things and if you're starting

Speaker:

out, you know maybe it's a bit overwhelming to do all of these things.

Speaker:

So just pick a couple of the things together, you know,

Speaker:

you're doing more than nothing.

Speaker:

You're always going to do you're always going to get better results if

Speaker:

you're doing something consistently and it's more than nothing.

Speaker:

LinkedIn is the same.

Speaker:

I've seen the reach on LinkedIn go down a little bit over the last few years.

Speaker:

Yeah, last few years probably, maybe last 12 months even more so.

Speaker:

But again, you can still use this as a platform.

Speaker:

If it's a platform you're not using very much, you might not get a lot

Speaker:

of reach by posting this stuff once a week on there, but it might just

Speaker:

be a few extra people that you don't see, that you wouldn't normally

Speaker:

have got into this piece of content.

Speaker:

You know, the success of YouTube, yes, we want to be on search and

Speaker:

we want to be on recommended, but actually, if you're a business owner

Speaker:

and you're trying to convert clients into prospects, into clients, into

Speaker:

leads, into sales, it might just be the thing that tips them over the edge.

Speaker:

They're seeing you posting this regular content every week on LinkedIn.

Speaker:

They're seeing you posting this regular content every week on Instagram and

Speaker:

eventually they go, yeah, you know what?

Speaker:

This is the person I trust.

Speaker:

I need this thing now.

Speaker:

This is a person I trust I see I'm posting about it all the time.

Speaker:

So posting those things is going to be helpful.

Speaker:

And then of course I've got Stories, but that could be converted into

Speaker:

Reels and TikToks and stuff as well.

Speaker:

I will update this spreadsheet to add some of that content in there.

Speaker:

And I think we'll find that there's a lot more we can do with this

Speaker:

content as things go forward.

Speaker:

All right, so I think that's the Content Promotion Framework.

Speaker:

Let me know on YouTube in the comments if you watch this and you find this helpful.

Speaker:

Don't forget to give me a 5 star on the podcast platforms of your choice.

Speaker:

You know I got two reviews on Apple for my podcast.

Speaker:

We get hundreds of listeners now per week and yet I've got 2 reviews.

Speaker:

How is it that nobody's taking the time out to reviewers?

Speaker:

I'm not trying to make you feel guilty or am I?

Speaker:

But we do need some reviews because it does help us out

Speaker:

so I'd really appreciate that.

Speaker:

And don't forget to come and join us at thecreatormeetup.com.

Speaker:

We are going to be around forever.

Speaker:

I am going to be talking about it forever.

Speaker:

It is there for business owners, entrepreneurs, creators, whether you're

Speaker:

a new creator, whether you're thinking about becoming a creator, whether you

Speaker:

want to create more content, whether you're an existing creator with a big

Speaker:

audience, we've got a whole variety of people in that community already.

Speaker:

And I'd love to see you over there.

Speaker:

All right.

Speaker:

My name is Matt Hughes, King of Video.

Speaker:

Thanks so much for listening or watching and I'll see you next time.

Speaker:

Bye bye.
