Alright, so in this video I’m going to show
you how add videos to your blog post. Alright, let’s get started. So in order to begin, you
have to create a YouTube channel and upload some YouTube videos. So I’m going to go ahead
and check out this video that I had created called 99 Designs Review and I’m going to
go ahead and show you how I embed this into my blog post. So the very first thing you
want to do is, you want to see there’s this button called ‘SHARE’. You’ll want to click
on the ‘SHARE’ button. Once you get to that, they’re going to give you this address. This
YouTube address with some funky numbers and stuff, anyway that’s the address of your YouTube
video. You’ll want to go ahead and copy that and you’re going to go back to your blog post
and you’re going to embed it inside that. Okay so here we are inside our blog post and
we’re going to go ahead and find a nice spot for this video. I’m going to go ahead and
put it somewhere close to the top. I want people to really watch this video. So I’m
going to go ahead and after the first couple of paragraphs what you do is you just paste
that address inside you’re blog post. It’s very simple. What’s going to happen is WordPress
is going to read this address and they’re going to say, “Oh, this is a video!” so they’re
going to automatically embed a video inside of your WordPress blog post. So I’m going
to click ‘SAVE DRAFT’. And now let’s preview our blog post with our new video. Okay great,
so now you can see the video is right here! It’s the exact same YouTube video that was
embedded from this and now it’s on your blog post. What’s great about this is whenever
people watch the YouTube videos here you get credit on your YouTube channel as a view and
if people let’s say they ‘Like’ it or subscribe to your channel from here you get the same
credit as if they were watching it on YouTube itself. So that’s what’s really neat about
cross promoting and getting your content viewed on multiple platforms. Okay so that’s just
a quick tutorial of how to add a YouTube video to your blog post and I’ll see you guys in
the next video. 🙂
