Videos are proven to be the best way to get engagement and traffic.

And there are 2 ways to use videos to drive traffic to your site - video SEO and video ads.

But which is better?

Watch the following video and see how I compared the 2...

So whether you will do more of video SEO or video ads depends of how you want to achieve results in your campaigns.

Personally, I do more of video ads and just do video SEO by optimizing my Youtube videos a bit (not so serious on it though).

To help you with, here are the pros and cons of doing these 2...

Video SEO


  • Good for long term purposes, thus, great for evergreen products
  • FREE - you can get traffic organically


  • It takes some time before you get results
  • You need to spend more time and energy (and even some money) to optimize your videos
  • You don't have full control at things - Google can change it's algorithm, competitors can outrank you, etc.

Video Ads


  • Faster results
  • Easier to setup
  • You have more control 


  • You need to spend money (which you have to do with video SEO anyway)
  • Can be risky sometimes

I'm getting more results from video ads this time and I even created a course on it called Social Video Ads.

I released that last year and most of the things I taught there still works.

But Facebook did a BIG update lately (merging Ads Manager and Power Editor) and so I had to update the course very soon.

There were also new things that are working lately that I have to discuss in the course.

I'll be recreating the course and host it now inside my site. 

All the previous members will be given access so if you're a Social Video Ads member, you'll soon receive an email with your new login details.
