We had a recent issue with a digital marketing agency client who has thousands of images and videos about their business and many of them are fantastic. The problem is that we didn’t know what was in the images or videos.

The next step in uploading videos to YouTube is that the business owner or other staff members can use the title and description text areas to describe exactly what is going on in that video.

Using keywords is easy because you’ll just be describing what is going on – it’s second nature for you. The best part is that your business blog writer (copy writer) will have enough information to write about the video in their blog.

Once the video is uploaded it becomes part of your YouTube video library and channels and you can further organise them. A great reason for doing this is that your digital marketing videos can get discovered by anyone watching something related on Youtube.

If anyone subscribes to your YouTube channel they’ll also get notified that you have just uploaded a new videos and that further increases your audience and relevance.

When a video is available on Youtube that video can be embedded into a website or business blog.

I went into a relaxed cafe at Forrestors Beach in the Central Coast of NSW where I met Cherie. She was using Square (similar to PayPal) through a mobile phone to receive contactless payments from customers credit cards – you know the tap and pay? Anyway, I thought it was unusual to see this technology in use and asked if I could video her using it and she said yes!

Want to see the video of the Square System being used? It’s pretty simple yet does everything you need to do, including receiving back confirmation that the payment has been approved and authorised.
