So… What is Vidyz?
Vidyz is the ONLY marketing video hosting platform that you will ever need! A video marketing platform that was designed by marketers for marketers like you and me. Vidyz is awesome because its going to stop all of YouTube’s redirecting after your videos + the ads that are going to steal your viewers attention.
Back in 2014 Youtube was a great place for marketers and their videos. Heck it was 100% free to use and drove a ton of FREE traffic to your websites. On top of all that it was possible to easily embed YouTube videos on to your websites pages so that you could have FULL control on what to show to your audience. It was pretty much the best FREE hosting service platform on the planet.
HOWEVER… While YouTube still maintains to be a powerful platform and very beneficial it seems that sometime back in Spring of 2018 YouTube had eliminated some of its biggest features appealing to marketers.
GOOGLE Eliminates AutoPlay
Google hit us marketers with a HUGE blow by removing the ability to autoplay videos. This caused a massive decline in views, clicks and even conversions. At this point we simply accepted this as a change that everyone was going through. It was soon after this that Brett and hit team decided to put Vidyz together so that we marketers had somewhere we could host our videos without worrying about the things that YouTube had taken away.
BUT IT GOT WORSE.
The YouTube “TRAFFIC SIPHON”
In late 2018 YouYube made it so that you could no longer turn off “Related Videos” when someone either paused a video or got to the end. That meant that even if you spent all your time, energy, and money getting someone to your page to watch your video, Youtube was going to take that traffic AWAY from your website.
When someone paused your video it offered MULTIPLE ways for them to click over to Youtube. I counted…a total of SIX links back to Youtube… and away from YOUR marketing pages.
Then… Accounts would out of NO WHERE get deleted…
…and recently at a marketing event I met an ‘ace’ video
marketer who had a YouTube account with
OVER 163,000 subscribers shut down overnight…
With NO chance of getting it back OR the videos inside
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying Youtube is HORRIBLE.
In fact, I still use it on a daily basis to upload my videos and drive traffic to MY website.
But, YouTube is definitely not for marketers anymore.
It has 2 main goals:
– To maximize ITS OWN advertising revenue … and
– To increase so-called ‘user experience’ with related videos
In a nutshell, YouTube wants to direct as much traffic as possible back to its own website. By forcing you to show ‘related’ videos with multiple links back to YouTube … It increases ad revenue by pulling people away from your links & calls-to-action.
Fair enough, but we weren’t looking to build Youtube’s business. We wanted to build OUR own businesses.
So something needed to change…
…and that’s where Brett came in.
He saw the problems these updates had created … and wasn’t willing to lose his hard-earned traffic.
