YouTube Plus Google My Business Equals March Magic Marketing

Real Estate Broker/Owner with KD Realty - 408.972.1822 CA BRE#01366594

Google is the King of Search Engines. YouTube is the King of Video. We all know the relationship between Google and YouTube - don't we? There is great synergy between the two. Unlike, for example, YouTube and FaceBook. Oh my!



I recently (January 2019) participated in a Webinar that taught how to set up and organize a YouTube Channel. I had a channel for my probate real estate website however it was a mess. The timing of the webinar was perfect.  Following the webinar, I immediately dove into setting up my NeedProbateHelp YouTube Channel and giving it a facelift and complete makeover.  



It was transformed from craptacular to spectacular over the course of 6-8 hours. Okay, so I am biased! To say that I am proud of the transformation is an understatement. I would most definitely say it was successful. 


More perfect timing! On February 28, 2019, Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD published a post on how to get rid of suggested videos. On March 3, 2019, I saw the post! 

If you are not following Debb and Bernie you may want to do so and join the YouTube Thursdays Group.  

Thanks to Debb and Bernie my embed videos are now suggesting MY videos rather than some random videos, from random people, about random things that have nothing to do with probate real estate or probate for that matter! 


I have fifteen (15) more professionally produced videos that I will drip into YouTube and my WordPress site over the next couple of months.


"The path to success is to take massive, determined action."  Tony Robbins


Once the YouTube channel was set up I created a video library on my WordPress Probate Real Estate site and set it up to mirror the YouTube channel.

Google My Business

I have begun taking massive action on Google My Business. The plan and strategy are in place. There is so much work to be done.

Moving forward I will be asking clients to leave a review on Google My Business. 

Like most things in business, the things we do to build our online presence cumulate over time. When we write great content and publish consistently, over time, we create a synergistic effect much like Google and YouTube. 

If we build it Google and YouTube will come and so will the clients and the business. 


"Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts."

Great post, Kathleen. I've subscribed. When can I expect my $50 gift card? Shall I send you my address?  Seriously, the AR gremlins are back at work... you disappeared off my "followed" list so I've just refollowed. No wonder I wasn't seeing your posts in my feed, but had to go searching for them.

Kathleen, I visited your YouTube website - it's quite impressive. Congratulations. Sometime in the future I will have to attend that webinar, and learn how to do that. Here is a way to participate in the March contest - add one new thing ... :) Thanks for the idea.

Kathleen, thank you so much for sharing this.  I am going to use this information - make time to get it done. Congratulations on the well deserved feature. I just need to go and sign up for the $50 - but honestly, I think the information you gave is worth a lot more than that.  Thanks again for sharing!

Kathleen my friend, you are such a wise person, and not afraid to make massive changes when needed. I'll be checking out your YouTube site, and find (again!) the way to block random videos from popping up when I embed a video.

Sounds like it's all coming together nicely for you.  Google loves video and pushes it to the top of the heap.
