5 Video and Influencer Marketing Blunders Sabotaging Your SEO Success

Discover the top 5 video and influencer marketing mistakes that could be hindering your SEO success. Avoid these blunders!

The Landmines of Video and Influencer Marketing

You know, as a seasoned creative director at Envy Creative, I’ve seen all manner of marketing blunders over the years, and trust me, they’re not moments any brand savors. It seems like the realm of video marketing and influencer marketing tends to be a playground for some particularly disastrous ones. And the tragedy? These blunders sabotage your SEO success, which is a crucial part of getting your brand the visibility it requires online.

Six Video and Influencer Marketing Fumbles

After years of working through video production campaigns and influencer collaborations, I’ve compiled some of the major blunders you should avoid at all costs if you don’t want to sabotage your SEO success. So, grab a cup of coffee, sit tight, and let’s navigate this adventure together!

Lack of Keyword Research in Video Metadata

Diving straight into the pool without checking if the water is right – that’s what it’s like to overlook keyword research in your video descriptions. It’s like making a blockbuster movie and forgetting to showcase it. Keyword-optimized descriptions help search engines understand your content and, consequently, boost your visibility. Remember, your keyword should inform your content, not the other way around.

Ignoring Video Sitemaps

Adding a video sitemap on your website is like leaving clear instructions for a visitor – in this case, the search engine. It becomes easier for it to crawl and index your video content, thus enhancing your SEO. Neglecting this is like leaving a guest at the mercy of a maze.

Negligible Video Thumbnails

Video thumbnails are like billboards. In a sea of digital content, a compelling thumbnail can increase your click-through rates, driving more traffic to your site. Just like when I chose a movie to watch with my kids last week, the movie with the catchy cover won. Never sideline the intrinsic value of an eye-catching thumbnail!

Choosing the Wrong Influencers

Perhaps the most disheartening misstep I’ve seen businesses make is selecting inappropriate influencers. Relevance and credibility should be your guiding lights. No matter the follower count, if an influencer doesn’t resonate with your brand, it’s like serving fine wine at a children’s birthday party – it just doesn’t fit, right?

Sparse Monitoring and Iteration

Launching a video and influencer marketing campaign and not monitoring its performance is like driving blindfolded. Without tracking your results and making necessary adjustments, you’ll keep repeating the same mistakes, oblivious to the downfall in your SEO rankings.
