YouTube and LinkedIn are such complementary platforms. One YouTube video can become so many different types of content, which makes it accessible to people throughout the world. In this episode, I’m speaking to Gillian Whitney, a live stream specialist, about the power and versatility of YouTube videos. We discuss the many benefits of creating videos on YouTube and how they can also benefit your LinkedIn presence.
Video content is one of the best forms of content you can make simply because it is so easily repurposed. A YouTube video can become multiple LinkedIn videos, a podcast, a blog post, and several short-form content pieces for other platforms. That’s the beauty of content – you can create something for every type of learning style, so everyone benefits from what you have to say.
The versatility is incredible, and everyone who has something to say should definitely show up on YouTube. Gillian says that everyone should claim their YouTube handle, as well, even if you’re just thinking about creating content. Claim your space!
I’ve recently hit one million views on my YouTube channel, which is amazing, and I think I need to start taking my channel seriously! If the amount of people connecting with me on LinkedIn and business enquiries coming through is anything to say, the potential for growth is exponential.
LinkedIn is like a conference. Your personal profile is you showing up at the conference and speaking to people. Your company page is the booth you have at the conference. And YouTube is the videos and proof you display at your booth. The synergy between the two platforms is perfect.
