Bajaj Finserv’s official You Tube channel had very little organic viewership and engagement. The YouTube channel had a number of videos, but those videos were not present in YouTube search results even for brand keywords. In fact, videos created by third-party vloggers, video reviewers and influencers were ranking for many generic and brand keywords in YouTube.
Also, the number of active subscribers was very low.
Our solution was to deliver results that would genuinely impact the business. It would not be sufficient to just get the videos and/or channel to rank for generic and brand keywords. We needed to make sure the increased views would enhance audience engagement and retention thereby increasing overall awareness of the brand.
We devised a 360° approach to optimize the channel:
Our 360° approach to Video SEO & YouTube Optimization helped deliver a massive improvement in rankings for the entire set of 500 keywords. Over the 5 month period from April ’18 to August ’18, the overall performance of the YouTube Channel improved immensely:
