The YouTube channel for RVtravel.com has passed 2 million views and is attracting about 100,000 new views a month, according to a report on RV News Service.
“The pace is speeding up now that we’re posting a daily newsletter,” said RVtravel.com editor Chuck Woodbury. “We have often included a video in our weekly RVtravel.com newsletter, which we’ve published for more than 11 years. But we’re including one in every issue of our new weekday publication RV Daily Tips. Each one offers concise advice from an RVer, usually a well-known expert, about some aspect of RVing.
“For those of us with roots in print publishing, being able to include a video in an issue of a periodical — in this case online — seems almost too good to be true. I dreamed about doing something like this years ago when I published a printed magazine, but it seemed like science fiction.”
Articles and videos from each issue of RV Daily Tips are indexed for future reference. “As we add videos this easily searchable archive will become a convenient way for an RVer to get concise advice,” Woodbury said.
Although most of the videos are provided by paid freelancers, Woodbury produces many himself. He is currently on the road in the Southwest with his motorhome for six weeks, writing stories and videotaping advice segments for future newsletters. “I plan to be busy at the big Quartzsite RV show coming up later this month,” he said.
Woodbury said that other videos hosted on the RVtravel.com YouTube channel are embedded on the company’s other websites and blogs including RVtechTips.com.
