There’s a big secret about video marketing – most of it doesn’t work…
Right now Youtube has over 81,000,000 videos. However, only a tiny fraction of them ever receive any significant traffic…
To be more specific less than 0.33% (that’s one third of a percent) ever even reach the 1 million view mark.
Even more confronting, is that over half those 81 million videos (53% to be exact) receive less than 500 views during their entire life.
What this means is that the lion’s share of the traffic goes to a very select few Channels on Youtube.
The good news is a number of these elite channels actually follow an insanely simple formula to repeatedly produce these traffic-hauling videos over and over again.
