If the recent deluge of investment in YouTube MCNs proves anything, it’s that online video has entered a feverish gold rush phase. And it’s just the beginning. As with any gold rush, those with the best tools will ultimately win out. Which is why at vidIQ we’re extremely excited to be building the most robust MCN tools in the industry.

YouTube is becoming an increasingly crowded marketing channel, and getting “easy” subscribers and views will only become harder as more brands and creators scramble to get in on the action. Creators are beginning to realize that an MCN is only as good as the tools they provide, and MCNs are looking to vidIQ to provide their creators with tools that give them a leg up, drive real growth, and help manage their increasingly large networks of channels.

As viewers continue to flock to YouTube, brands are re-evaluating it as a practical alternative to costly online video platforms. At last month’s Streaming Media East show in New York City, our CEO Rob Sandie was on an expert panel that critiqued YouTube’s cost benefits, built-in audience, established marketing channels, native device compliance, technical features, and discussed YouTube’s platform as a destination for engagement.

If you weren’t able to attend, watch the video below to learn the pros and cons of using YouTube as a video platform and hear which content and distribution strategies YouTube is best suited for.

In addition to the panel, Rob was interviewed by Blip.tv on how vidIQ is helping brands leverage YouTube as a primary home for their audience with our YouTube optimization tools. Watch the video below for the full details.

It may come as a surprise, but 58% of YouTube viewers discover a video because of Search and Related videos. In other words, SEO must be part of your YouTube marketing strategy. While we already offer incredible tools to help optimize your videos’ tags, we get questions all the time asking how to title YouTube videos to help them go viral. Today we’re happy to announce our YouTube Title Recommendations tool, which makes optimizing your video titles easy.

With vidIQ’s Title Recommendations tool you’ll receive a list of the best relevant keywords to add to your videos based on YouTube search trends, search volume, and metadata analysis. These keywords are recommended on an ongoing basis, every week – as search trends change, your titles will never become outdated.

Trying to keep up with your YouTube channel’s comments and engage with your community can seem like an uphill battle. To the brands that have pleaded with us to make their lives easier by building YouTube comment moderation and YouTube management tools to satisfy their needs; we hear you! This has been a huge area of focus for us, and we’re making our YouTube tools better every day. Here are some of our powerful features that are making YouTube comment management less of a headache for the enterprise:

Sort Your YouTube Comments By Reputation

No community manager has enough time to respond to every YouTube comment made on a popular video – community managers want a simple way to find their best YouTube comments by the viewer who has the most subscribers. To solve this, vidIQ allows you to sort your YouTube comments by reputation in order to discover and engage with your most influential viewers – these viewers are what we at vidIQ refer to as your Top Influencers. These top YouTube viewers are the ones who you want to connect with and encourage to evangelize your video.

Don't try to respond to every YouTube comment – sort your YouTube comments by reputation and only respond to influential viewers

 

Sort Your YouTube Comments By Time

vidIQ offers advanced comment sorting capabilities that allow you to narrow down your YouTube comments to a specific time period. Rather than having to visit each individual video’s page, vidIQ takes the tedium out of YouTube comment moderation by allowing you to view all of your most recent comments across all of your videos in one convenient location, saving you time.

 

Reply from a Different YouTube Channel

Some of the best YouTube marketers we’ve encountered prefer to reply to comments from a personal channel vs. their brand’s channel in order to reveal the human behind the brand and prevent their brand from engaging in distracting conversations. With vidIQ you can reply to comments from another YouTube account, making YouTube play nice with large brands.

View All YouTube Comments by a User

Although YouTube already supports threaded / nested comments (which Facebook just introduced for Pages), they don’t provide you with the ability to easily find every comment a viewer has made or a viewer’s YouTube comment history. We do. Knowing the context of a viewers’ comment and whether or not you’ve had other interactions with that user in the past is critical, especially if you have more than one community manager.
