Do You Have Your Own YouTube Channel?

YouTube Channel For Your Blog

YouTube Channel – I want to welcome Dvr. Dame, a new guest blogger here on Inspire to Thrive – I found her when I was first starting to blog and she wrote a piece on Alf. I just loved that show! I wish they made shows like that today still. Her blog always is a welcome break for me as I tend to read more blogs on learning topics. I enjoy her quotes and throwback days that take me back to another time. Here she is on the topic of a YouTube Channel for your blog.

YouTube Channel
YouTube is one of the highest trafficking websites out there. A lot of people hate it because they think it’s only about guys getting kicked in the crotch. Sometimes it is about childish humor but it’s much more. Using YouTube can help you create a successful blog. Have you started your own YouTube Channel yet?

Benefits of YouTube Channel For Your Blog

One benefit of having YouTube videos on your blog is it will visually look appealing toreaders. This can bring in more viewers and hopefully more subscribers. If you decide to have your own channel on YouTube you can promote your blog and yes hopefully create more traffic to your blog. You can do this by adding your brand to the background of your original video. You can take it a step further and become a YouTube partner. Becoming a partner gives you the option to add banners and a call to action branding. This can earn you cash because YouTube shares their ad revenue with partners. You need a lot of hits and frequently added videos to qualify as a YouTube partner.

Downside of a YouTube Channel

The big downside to a YouTube channel is copyright infringement. If you don’t get permission from the owner of the video then your account could be shut down or in a worse case scenario you could get sued. The possible loophole to this is the person who first copied the video would be the person getting sued. Also if the origina lowner posted the video on YouTube and has a share link then technically it’s open to the public. If you want to play it safe then use your own videos.

  • Optimistic Mom, I could see you with a humorous channel! Dvr Dame – great post, glad to share it! Jan, yes, I have one too with just one tutorial but not crazy about it- hope to find time to work on it more.

  • First of all. I already follow the DVRDame, she is awesome!
    I don't have a youtube channel but the thought has crossed my mind. I just don't know what I would be sharing besides my own ramblings. lol

  • Thanks Candice, Smantha, Rusty and Ileane for stopping by today to read Rebecca's YouTube post – she has inspired me to to create more for my new channel. It was nice to learn about the partner program too.

  • Hi Rebecca, I started my YouTube channel in 2009 and I have about 80 videos on there now. I really enjoy recording them and even though I'm not a partner yet, Google invited to AdSense revenue sharing on my account. I always encourage others to use YouTube to promote their blogs and websites. Thanks!

  • Thank you Rebecca! YouTube is indeed a great medium. I do have a channel but have used it little. I hope to be broadcasting more in the near future, in fact I have recently purchased a better camera that can film in HD. It is a bit difficult for me as I don't like to be on film, but it is oct certainly a great way to share content! THank you for sharing this!

  • Great post, Rebecca! I have a YouTube account that I plan to use as my business YouTube channel, but I haven't done anything with it yet. I'm still got my web designer crackin' out ideas for another website I'm launching. Once that's over, I plan to get my YouTube channel going. I really have no idea what it will entail. I'm ready to make videos three times a week and post them, but am a bit nervous about getting started.

    Great info that gave me a boost!

  • Hmm. I don't have one yet, but have been thinking about it. Thanks for all the great info. Happy weekend!
