A client once asked: What exactly is a featured video in YouTube and how does it compare to getting the edge on viewers? Is it worth going that route? I have a very unique video and would like to get mass coverage.
Excellent question. A Youtube featured or more commonly a spotlight video can really launch views to a new level and if your video is designed right send your traffic through the roof also.
Once your video has good ratings and comments, Send an email to email@example.com, and attach a link to the YouTube video you would like to have featured. Do not attach the video. It must first be uploaded to the YouTube site!
Explain to them why you think your video is worth being featured. Even if the video hasn’t yet received a high rating or a lot of views, the editor may deem it worthy.
Make a heart warming compelling case as to how many people need this information etc. Featured videos are mostly from yourtube partners, but they do throw in a spotlight video now and again.
