Shakira's Example

But let's look into an example from a non B2B SaaS world first.

Shakira, a well-known Colombian singer and songwriter, successfully used YouTube Shorts to drive traffic to her music videos. One example of this is her song "Girl Like Me" with Black Eyed Peas.

Shakira created a short video on YouTube Shorts that showed her dancing to the song's beat. The video had eye-catching visuals, and the dance moves were easy to follow, making it an excellent way for fans to engage with the song.

The short video gave fans a taste of what they could expect from the full video and piqued their interest, driving traffic to her longer-form content.

This example shows how B2B SAAS companies can learn from musicians like Shakira and use YouTube Shorts to create engaging and eye-catching videos that drive traffic to their longer-form content on YouTube.
