Using YouTube Channels to Drive Site Traffic [Video]

As media planners, we recognize that the audience we’re trying reach with our messages isn’t standing still nor are they only limited to a single media channel. Instead, consumers shift between media channels all day long, including both traditional and digital realms. By understanding the different consumer “touch points,” savvy marketers are able to better predict when and where they can place their messages so they get in front of the right consumer at the right time.

As marketers, it’s paramount that we create media plans that allow us to reach our target consumers no matter where they go. And that often means thinking ahead about what draws and holds consumers in the first place: what is it they are searching for and where will they think to look for it?
