The Best Way To Use Youtube With WordPress
Themes April 10, 2013 John Merrick
Video is becoming increasingly important online. With broadband speeds going up all around the world more and more people are preferring video as their content format of choice – Both for recreational and educational use.
Just take a look at these jaw dropping stats from Youtube…
This was the reason why we developed our Covert Video Press theme – and the popularity of video is reflected in the fact that it’s still our all time best seller among all our WordPress Themes & Plugins.
You could upload videos to Youtube as part of your marketing strategy (and you should).
But there are some problems…
- You have to create your own videos – which takes a lot of time and quite frankly can be a huge pain in the butt.
- You are competing with the other 800,000 videos uploaded the same day as your video – and if you don’t have your own traffic to bring to the mix you are going to be one of the many videos stuck on 10 views (9 of them your own).
- Every video you upload is just building up Youtube/Google’s content portfolio and real estate – and the end of the day they are the ones profiting from your hard work.
- If you’re lucky (and that is a big “if”), you might get invited to their partner program so you can earn a few pennies from Adsense.
Now I’m not knocking Youtube as a marketing platform – it has it’s uses
But there is a better way!
A way to turn the tables and make Youtube and Google do the hard work for you – while you stay in control and reap all the benefits!
So even though it does not make sense to try and compete directly with Youtube
Making your site look, feel and work like Youtube and feeding off all their content does make a lot of sense!
As you already know we do most of our stuff on WordPress – so we naturally set out to create a theme that would do just that…
- Mimic Youtube and other big video sites, and serve up videos in the highly addictive tube format, well known and loved by billions of people around the world.
- Legally piggy back of other people’s work and let you build huge video sites without ever creating a single video yourself.
- Stay in complete control over what content is being showed on your site – and more importantly over the ads… with you pocketing 100% of the revenue instead of sharing the scraps from the big Google table.
And after 3 months of hard work and endless testing – the result was our Covert Video Press theme.
We tested it on our own sites and the results where through the roof!
