YouTube Thursdays - Re-visting Old Videos

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

YouTube Thursdays - January 27, 2022

Working on our niche video marketing has lead us to some old video discoveries we'll give new life. It's always smart to revisit your old videos and see if you can improve them, or give them important updates. 

 

Our list. 

1. Check for old branding, for obvious reasons.  

2. Optimize titles, keywords, tags, descriptions, transcripts, relevant playlists, and custom video thumbnails. They really do make a difference. 

3. In our case, many of our old videos refer to our wonderful old pal, McKinley (aka) Mac.  We will keep them in our library, but need to update some of them used in introductory videos.  

 

Here's a video from 2012. It could use some updates and reason for being.  In addition, you'll see this was when I (Debb) was working solo.  New branding and some updates about the value of feeding birds will give it new life and purpose. 

 

 

This one, from 2019,  will also need some work.  It too lacks a story.  What are these bees, and why are they helpful for rural gardens? 

 

 

Next week, we'll share the revisions.

Good advice Nina Hollander, Broker and like Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker says, consider it Spring Cleaning.

Hi Debb and Bernie:

Thanks for the incentive to do some revamping for old videos (well, probably not all of them). I have done this from time to time but not in any planful way. It's painful to see what improvements need to be made in some cases.

Raymond Henson, eXp Realty well, that's nice. Sounds like you won't have rebranding issues.

This is an interesting post, and one I had not thought about. One thing I did notice, I grow more handsome with each passing year.

great advice. I need to revisit some of mine. The last time I did, I updated some of the descriptions and tags, which helped get those videos new views again!

HI Debb and Bernie- it's interesting that most of us don't think about revisiting older videos to refresh them and bring them up-to-date. I remember Mac!

Exactly. Old videos always have something new to teach you if you let them

Like evergreen blog posts, the timeless videos that work hard in your channel need dusting, little adjustments. Because you know more now than you did when they were shot, edited, uploaded. And the at the end of each, you want embeds of other videos to keep the visitor on your channel Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD ! Great advice and videos above!

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD Videos in general are said to garner more attention online that say a post on FB or photo on Instagram. Can you tell a difference? I'm sure you've blogged about it. I want to do videos but not super comfortable with it. I'll have to go through some of your old blogs for assistance.

All videos are always good to have around and sometimes the old ones have a lot of evergreen beautifulness

Oh, such sage advice, Debb! Funny but, last week, I was looking at your YouTube channel and saw some of your older videos and saw your old friend, Mac. Now you have TWO very vibrant fur babies that will be great on video too! 

Love your videos with the birds & the bees! Your WA birds are so very colorful - I would be in heaven there!
