If you’re a marketing professional or a small business owner looking for new and better ways to gain exposure and recognition for your brand, you should definitely consider partnering with YouTubers that share a similar audience.
Doing this can be an effective way to show more people what kinds of products you provide, how well they work, and why they want to buy them. And you can do it all with better results at less cost than television ad campaigns. Here are just three of the many reasons that YouTubers make great marketing partners for your brand.
People Love Visuals
First, you can talk about how well your product works all day long, but it’ll never be as convincing as showing people what it does and how well it does it. While written content and reviews can help a lot with your marketing efforts, people really love pictures and videos. Visuals like these help sell products and services better than just about anything else.
Say, for example, that you’re trying to improve your marketing efforts for a new cosmetics company. Giving some sample products to beauty vloggers to review can be very cost effective advertising. Of course, you do have to ensure that you’re supplying a quality product because vloggers will always tell their viewers what they really think about a product.
Note: Whether it’s free samples, or compensation, the cost of your YouTube sponsorship campaign(s) will depend on the creators and channels you partner with.
Viewers Trust The Creators They Watch
While you might be a bit wary that product reviewers on YouTube are going to tell their viewers exactly what they think of a product or service, this is actually a good thing. Because they’re honest about products they like versus ones that don’t work as well for them, their viewers trust what they say. Basically, when a YouTuber features your product and talks positively about it, their viewers are going to be more likely to be interested because they trust their opinion.
Continuing with the cosmetics brand example, let’s say that you partner with a vlogger who’s known for doing thorough product tests and reviews. She knows all the tricks for great makeup application, and her audience knows that she won’t mince words when it comes to an inferior product. If she has good things to say about your mascara, you’re more than likely going to see an increase in interest for that mascara.
Better Ability To Reach Your Target Audience
The YouTubers who will want to try your products and partner with you to do reviews and features in their videos basically have the same target audience that you do. Their viewers have interest in your niche and the products or services that you provide, which means you don’t just have an engaged audience when you partner with a YouTuber – you have an engaged audience that perfectly fits the demographics of your target market.
These are just three of many reasons that partnering with a YouTuber is a great marketing move. Choose the right creator, and you’ll both win – they’ll get some form of compensation for featuring your brand, and you’ll get some of the most cost effective marketing around.
