There are hundreds of thousands of content creators on YouTube. We're not in shortage of content, that's for sure. The great thing about YouTube is that it's not only a powerful content marketing tool. But it's also a hub for great knowledge and resource.
I mean, who needs to spend money on expensive courses or books? You can pretty much find anything you want to learn about on YouTube, and for free too.
Yep, we're inundated with content on YouTube. And for the most part, a lot of that content is worthy of our attention.
Of course, everyone with a YouTube channel has something to say these days. We all have varied interests so there's something for everyone.
That said, if you're a blogger or marketer, you want to get the most from watching videos on YouTube, right? In this case, you've got to follow the users that are providing the best value and most reliable information.
The kind of content creators I'm referring to are those who dedicate time and energy creating useful, informative and educational content.
I'd like to think that I'm a content creator myself. I create a lot of WordPress tutorials. But as a blogger and internet business owner, I depend on YouTube as my main source of knowledge and information.
Now with smarter technology, especially mobile technology, we can consume videos on the go. That's awesome, don't you think? We can't take that for granted.
You could be sitting on a train journey back from work and watching a YouTube video. You could be waiting at the dentist and watching a YouTube video. As long as you watch something useful and valuable, your time isn't wasted.
You feel a certain connection whenever you're watching someone on YouTube. At least, I think so.
That's the beauty with video medium. It can instill trust and credibility, much more than consuming content on any other medium I think.
