Video Distribution Strategy: Don’t have a car with no wheels
A video without a distribution strategy is like a car with no wheels.
💰 You spent precious time and a fortune creating your video content.
🎥 You had such high hopes for it, but now the content is dead.
😵 It has a handful of views and ZERO RETURN ON INVESTMENT. The internet is wild, with new shiny content popping up daily.
So how do you ensure the video you’re putting out gets seen AND lands you a sale?
It’s not just about posting it to a platform, adding a few hashtags, and calling it a day.
You must create a campaign to distribute this content; a video distribution strategy (not to be confused with tactics.)

-𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁’𝘀 𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴? When you create your video, make sure that you start with a good SEO strategy or with relevant topics for your video distribution strategy. This is how you develop a great title and script.
-𝗕𝗼𝗼𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗻𝘁 Not all traffic happens organically. Sometimes you need to invest money in boosting your content to reach a much broader audience in a shorter amount of time.
