Every business or website must have a Facebook page because you can get massive viral traffic for your videos via Facebook branding.
For starters you need to create a custom header image and there a lot of free websites where you can create stunningly beautiful headers. For example you can try out Canva.com which I fell in love with recently.
The second step in Facebook branding is to kickstart your fan base with a little bit of paid advertising. Just $15-30 can be enough to reach the critical mass of 500-1000 fans. From there you can grow it absolutely for free just by posting viral images.

Even if you did not plan to venture into pinterest you must consider doing it because you can easily get an extra 100-200 visitors per day from Pinterest branding.
Unlike other social networks Pinterest is built to refer traffic to other websites. Even Facebook restricts the reach of your posts if it contains a link to an other website.
People on Pinterest are used to click on images to leave Pinterest which is great if you want people to visit your videos or websites.

Connecting Everything Together…
with Google Plus Branding
Before we get into this topic I want to tell you a little known fact…
If someone ever gave you a +1 on Google plus it is a sign for Google that he/she likes your information and everything you post on Google plus for example all your posts you shared will get preferred rankings for that person.
Which means your YouTube videos and your other content will end up on the first page of Google when that person searches for information related to your content.
This is an unfair advantage and this is why you want to get in front of people on Google Plus!

As you probably noticed I always keep the best information to the end of my posts to encourage you to put everything into action with a smile on your face, knowing that what you are about to do will make your competition’s jaw drop.
Up until know this posts was about social media and branding but there is actually an other layer which is the blogosphere.
Bloggers and blogs get an enormous chunk of traffic and you can syphon that traffic and authority to your social profiles which means you can make your videos rank higher and faster by connecting your accounts to these blogs.
So as a part of branding a business you need to create an account on www.gravatar.com and just as easily on Google Plus you can connect your social media accounts there too.
But how to leverage the power of blogs?
As your daily routine do one thing:
Go to google.com/blogsearch and do a search for blog related to keywords you want to rank for with your YouTube videos and leave positive and constructive comments on those.
With this you will not only build relevant (which means powerful) links to your social media accounts and videos but also signals Google that you are active and an authority in your niche.
This will separate you from 90% of people out there who want to stand out and make money with YouTube.
