Having a few videos on your site may be your most beneficial 2014 resolution. Users will become more engaged and stay longer on your pages, maybe even recommend your media to their friends; bounce rate will decrease, and you'll gain extra credits from search engines. No doubt, videos are the right way to go.

The thing is videos are not easy to host and distribute, especially if your viewing-experience standards and expectations are set high. Since you can’t simply upload video files to your site's regular server, many site owners naturally choose to join a free service such as YouTube or Vimeo. They think that huge video platforms with millions of users and viewers must be the right place to be. Well, they can't be more wrong.

Why Not Use YouTube or Vimeo?

YouTube and Vimeo are indeed free to use, but as you know, nothing is ever really free. These are commercial companies that gain their profits mainly from ads and they want something in return; they are looking for your traffic. Now, isn't traffic the most important thing for you? You pay top dollars for SEO services, ads and campaigns in order to bring users into your site. Why would you give your visitors such an easy way out, straight into the hands of your competitors?

Using YouTube or Vimeo players on your site is like shooting yourself in the foot. One click on your video's shared link or on these companies' logos sends users to their video portals, drifting them further away from you. On YouTube and Vimeo viewers are automatically exposed to countless related videos, which are likely to include undesirable competition and other captivating videos of crazy cats or a live Tsunami. In addition, annoying pre-roll ads and in-video ads are often attached to your displays, showing you in an unprofessional light and sending away prospective customers.

Use a YouTube Alternative

Losing traffic, or worse, losing customers, is not what you had in mind, right? Luckily, there are a few great YouTube alternatives that do not only offer "clean" video players that carry no distractions nor threats to your site's traffic, but also provide you with some extra valuable advantages.

Cincopa video hosting services provides an inclusive video hosting solution designed to improve your user engagement and increase your website's traffic. Cincopa services, just like other high-quality video platforms, are not free, but then again, you must not forget the concrete value of your traffic and conversion rate.

Cincopa video hosting services include everything you need for creating a super attractive video display, which is completely under your control. That means, no external links you have not approved, no ads, no competition, and plenty of unique features, YouTube and Vimeo are not providing. Here are a few:

  1. Fully customizable responsive players - give the video displays your personal touch. Set your video player size, colors, elements and functions and Cincopa will create a suitable version for all available screens and mobile devices.
  2. Video branding – embed watermark logo into your videos and link it to a related URL
  3. Unlimited videos – add a playlist or establish a video portal for displaying multiple videos.
  4. No ads! – 100% clients' attention; nothing to delay, cut or disturb your video in any other way.
  5. Friendly video SEO– Cincopa's video players include efficient, built-in SEO Metadata to assure a full optimization of your site's search engine results.
  6. Google Analytics integration – follow-up your videos' performance and improve your video strategies.
  7. Embedding options - publish your branded videos in multiple social channels, including Vimeo and YouTube, and make sure to link them back to your site
  8. Social sharing – viewers share your videos through your webpage; meaning, your website (rather than YouTube) is the one that gets the social generated traffic and potential customers.
  9. Advanced security system – files are fully protected; yet, you may allow users downloading your videos and list the domains entitled to use them.

Cincopa is the most complete multimedia platform.
