Video on mobile screen, video sharing and marketing

In 2021 YouTube remains the largest and most popular video platform globally. However, the users are being frustrated by the many adverts per video. There is also a talk about the Google algorithm interfering with uploaded photos.

If you cannot access YouTube, remember that there are plenty of other platforms that you can use, and here are 4 of them.

1. GoogleTune

GoogleTune offers a huge potential for video creators who are interested in creating world-class general or niche-based content for their targeted clients. As one of the best YouTube alternatives,  this platform allows you to post content in a variety of formats, besides the formats that are synonymous with YouTube. The videos load faster and also download quickly. However, because the users can access videos without paying for them, it can become a little bit of a challenge for the content developers. If you want to build followers, GoogleTune is the place to go.

2. Vimeo

Vimeo is more than just a video platform as it provides tools for hosting, sharing, collaboration, and compressing. Video marketers can also benefit from the led generation tools which the site offers. It’s got a fairly large user base, especially in niche-based areas, making it a good platform to build your audience. The embeds can be customized, supports live streaming, 4K videos, and playback among others. However, if you are using the free plan, your uploads will be restricted to 500 MB every week, while the maximum video size for free users is 500MB. In Vimeo, the categories that have become highly popular include extreme sports, animations, nature videos, and short films among others.

3. Dailymotion

Dailymotion is a video posting and sharing platform, where you can share your videos with an already-existing audience. You can create your channel, attract followers and start to make money from the shared advertising revenue. With Dailymotion, you can get as close to YouTube, but without actually being there.

The video player is sleek and embedded. Depending on your creativity, you can earn decent money from the ads that are offered. Well, the numbers are small, but this platform is growing, and you can be sure to grow with it. The traffic potential of getting a video listed in search results is somehow lower, but there is serious growth potential.

4. Facebook Watch

Facebook Watch is the best alternative to YouTube, with the largest number of viewers than YouTube itself. It allows people to access and watch trending videos based on their interests as well as viewing history.  Although the interface is different from that of YouTube, the content, as well as the audience overlap. However, the potential which it offers is larger than that of YouTube and provides content developers with an opportunity to earn from their videos. You can upload files up to 10GB and which runs for up to 4 hours. It’s possible to target custom audiences by setting up retargeting campaigns. This video platform is also a great choice for those who want to Livestream.
