Looking for a new way to engage your current customers and attract new ones to your paint business? Starting a YouTube channel is a great way to offer valuable information your customers are looking for to inspire their next painting project.

 5 Benefits of Hosting a YouTube Channel

Creating a YouTube channel helps your business take advantage of benefits like:

  1. Increased engagement of your current audience — Social media networks continue to find that videos are more engaging than static photos, and there’s no better platform for engaging your customers through videos than YouTube. With YouTube, you can engage customers by asking them to leave comments, offering them video tutorials to answer frequently asked questions, and inspiring them with new project ideas.
  2. Increased sales opportunities — YouTube offers a great way for you to find new customers as well. When DIYers are looking for video tutorials for their next painting project and find your videos, you’re able to establish yourself as an expert in the design space and include calls-to-action which drive more sales to your store.
  3. Increased visibility to new audiences — YouTube surfers will have the chance to find your brand for the first time as they search for the types of videos you’ve posted. As viewers search for DIY content, they’ll have opportunities to find your videos come up as suggestions in their feed.
  4. Ability to host product demos — Many times, shoppers may be hesitant to try a new product for the first time; how will they know if the product is worth their investment? YouTube offers you the chance to demonstrate how a Fusion™ Mineral Paint products work before they make a purchase decision.
  5. Strengthened connections with your audience — Email newsletters and social media posts are great, but your audience will feel more connected to you as a person when they can see you in a video instead of just reading what you have to say. Videos allow viewers to see your facial expressions and hear your voice, so they feel like they’ve developed a relationship with you even if they’ve never met you in person.

But despite these benefits, starting a YouTube channel may feel daunting to you. Let’s talk about how you can start a YouTube channel for the first time.
