Without mincing words, the major difference between YouTube and Vevo is that; there is no limit to the type of content you can upload on Youtube. i.e. YouTube’s content doesn’t necessarily have to be a musical content. However, Vevo is solely for musical content.
Here are some key differences between YouTube and Vevo:
- Total ability to quickly and easily manage all parts of your channel at any time.
- Easy access to your uploads and also take down videos quickly.
- The ability to view, analyze and report your channel’s analytics is also guaranteed.
- You also have the opportunity to interact with your YouTube fans through likes, comments, and messages.
- For Vevo, you cannot update channel yourself, but you can have some files like your artist image, channel banner, social media links, a trailer video and other important contents updated through your distributor.
- Vevo makes you look more “legit” as an artist, although it doesn’t guarantee more exposure, but has more potential to go viral.
