Why Learn about YouTube?
Top Social Platform With a Global Audience
Unlike some social media channels (eg: TikTok) that face regional & security challenges, YouTube is a popular channel that gives you access to a global audience.
No.2 Largest Search Engine in the World
People don’t just come to YouTube for entertainment, they come to solve their problems, searching for answers in the form of ‘How To’ and educational videos.
Owned by Google, the No.1 Search Engine
Owned by Google, YouTube is deeply integrated into its ecosystem – Search, Android, Google Pay, Google Ads, giving it an edge over other social media channels.
Evergreen Video Platform
While other social media platforms (eg: Facebook) give a short life span (days, weeks) for your videos, YouTube might showcase your content even after years.
Long-form & Short-form Content
YouTube is well optimized for both long-form content, which is essential for transformation and short-form content which is required for getting attention.
Community Building & Discipleship
YouTube is a unique platform that has the right tools to help you build your online community, and create a discipleship funnel for your audience on social media.
