Best Practices for MetaCafe:

  • The more videos you can upload, the better. The videos should be made with quality and care. As a quick tip: Begin by adding whatever videos you’ve completed in the past before creating new ones. Whether you are advertising a specific product, a promotion, how to perform a specific procedure, etc., there are so many options for videos! Create content that will help or boost your audience. Valuable video content that satisfies your audience’s needs is crucial.

  • Be sure to add keywords to your title, tag, and descriptions for your videos so that they can be easily found on the web and therefore better optimized for search results.

  • After posting a video on MetaCafe make sure that you always share it on your social sites and blog right after. This step should be a build-in step of the video set-up process. Share your video socially as soon as it’s posted.

  • Be sure to also check out MetaCafe’s submission guidelines before uploading any videos for your business.
