Why should I curate and share other people’s YouTube Videos
Sharing other people’s YouTube videos on your website can be a great way to supplement your own content and provide value to your audience.
You may also think of curation as an editorial exercise, just like a magazine editor. Kurator lets you select and publish videos on and around topics you care about and share them in context with others.
Here are a few good reasons and use cases for sharing other people’s videos.
Curation adds value beyond algorithms
Sharing other people’s videos can help you provide a diverse range of content to your audience.
Curation differs from platform algorithms because you can add subjectivity and expertise to the content you share.
Platforms only suggest content based on your interest and your past behavior.
A curated content library offers and maintains context for the topics you want to communicate about.
Take control of your content with a curated library embedded directly on your website – it’s the perfect way to add value to what you share!
You can curate videos from experts in your industry or from influencers in your niche to provide valuable and engaging content to your audience.
By sharing other people’s videos on your website, you can build relationships with other content creators in your industry.
This can help you establish yourself as a valuable member of your community and can lead to collaborations and partnerships down the road.
Even though the videos are embedded on your website, the creators still get value, as each view adds to their exposure and influence on YouTube.
Sharing other people’s videos can help keep your audience engaged and coming back to your website.
By providing a mix of your own content and curated content, you can keep your audience engaged and build a loyal following.
Creating videos can be expensive and time-consuming, but by sharing other people’s videos, you can access a vast library of videos at no cost.
Educational and informative
Sharing other people’s videos can be a great way to provide educational and informative content to your audience.
You can share videos on topics that are relevant to your industry or niche, and provide your audience with valuable insights and information.
Diversifying your content
Your audience might get bored of seeing the same type of content from you all the time.
Sharing other people’s videos can help diversify your content and showcase different perspectives, styles, and formats to your audience.
