The client helped create a "perfect storm" by releasing a clever, heartfelt and thought-provoking video the week after our YouTube channel audit was complete, helping to reach and surpass the set goals.
I had the great pleasure of working with Clear Online Video recently when I hired them to perform an audit of our YouTube channel. They delivered as promised on time and according to the scope of our contract.
Throughout the process I found the team to be very pleasant, extremely knowledgeable, and readily available. They have a keen understanding of YouTube best practices and trends, and are adept practitioners of Google Analytics.
Because we are a small start-up, I especially appreciate their ability to think strategically and implement at the tactical level. And I love the many insightful tips they provided us to optimize both our overall channel and individual videos.
I highly recommend Clear Online Video, and I look forward to future collaborations with them as our channel grows. - Brian Rosenberg, Founder & CEO of Gays With Kids
